“For a few to be immortal, many must die.”
In Time’s premise — that people can buy or steal time to make themselves functionally immortal — is the most intriguing part of an otherwise standard sci-fi caper. Still, it’s a satisfying enough ride if the concept piques your interest.
Alien vs. Predator is less than the sum of its parts, as both the movies it’s based on have a lot more going for them. But if you’re in the mood for a silly sci-fi action flick, it’s more than up to the task.
Predator is a classic sci-fi action movie, which is more than we can say for its sequel. Predator 2’s reputation has improved somewhat since release, thanks in no small part to a great lead performance by Danny Glover.
As bleak as it is beautiful, Children of Men follows the fight to save the last pregnant woman on Earth after 18 years without a single child being born. Along with its heady themes, it includes some of the most incredible chase sequences ever filmed.
Alien, maybe the best sci-fi horror movie of all time, returns to Amazon Prime this month. The disappointing Alien 3 and Alien: Resurrection join it, but unfortunately, Aliens is still missing.
Ok, it’s not sci-fi, but it’s too exciting not to mention. The Wheel of Time is based on a beloved series of fantasy novels by Robert Jordan. It looks every bit as epic as Game of Thrones, but without the grimdark tone.
