6 thrilling sci-fi shows and movies coming to Netflix in March 2022
“The only good bug is a dead bug!”
6. Guardians of Justice
Guardians of Justice comes from Adi Shankar, showrunner of Netflix’s Castlevania. With a mix of live-action and animation, it’s a trippy, satirical take on the Justice League by way of Alan Moore’s Watchmen.
Gattaca is a slow-paced sci-fi classic set in a dystopian society where genetically engineered babies are the norm and people born the good old-fashioned way are second-class citizens at best.
4. Starship Troopers
Paul Verhoeven’s satirical Starship Troopers was largely hated upon release, only getting the credit it deserves more recently. It follows a gang of bright-eyed teens indoctrinated into a fascist regime as they carry out a bloody war against giant extraterrestrial bugs.
3. V for Vendetta
Based on the Alan Moore graphic novel, V for Vendetta is a parable of solidarity and resistance against totalitarianism. Its iconic Guy Fawkes mask even became a symbol for real-world protests after the movie’s release.
2. Sorry to Bother You
Directed by musician/activist Boots Riley, Sorry to Bother Youis a biting anti-capitalist satire with a shocking fantastical twist that I promise you won’t see coming.
1. Blade Runner 2049
Blade Runner 2049 returns to the world of 1982’s Blade Runner and the Philip K. Dick story that inspired it. 2049 follows a next-generation Replicant hunter through a journey that’s part manhunt, part existential crisis.
