You gots lots of movies to watch… and we mean… LOTS!
Best movie lists are very subjective, but one thing they do inspire is discussion. And discussion about Sci-Fi movies can be the most rollicking and enjoyable there is. That’s why we snapped up 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die and offer it to you. Not only will it learn you good about some of Sci-Fi’s greatest movies, but it will create hours and hours of discussions for you and your friends.
From the classic, low-budget Flash Gordon Saturday matinee serials of the 1930s and ’40s to mammoth blockbusters like Star Trek, Forbidden Planet, Star Wars, Alien, and 2001: A Space Odyssey (to name a few), filmdom’s most imaginative contributions to science fiction are vividly recaptured in 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die. With intriguing insights from film critics and a wealth of factual details from historians and academics, this book brings together the data, the drama, and the passions that have inspired movies about time travel, close encounters, distant planets, extraterrestrial monsters, alien invasions, and the many other story ingredients that enliven science fiction films. Plot summaries, cast and credit listings, and 200 dramatic illustrations recapture unforgettable moments from sci-fi hits. One of the parts we love most about 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die is there is a picture of the movie poster for each film! Watch and discuss all these movies – your brain will thank you!
