SCI FI MOVIE GADGETS - Greetings! Hmm...I would have to say that two of the best "obscure" Science Fiction films I have encountered are Moon Trap and Screamers. Both films lean heavily toward horror; however, they are fantastic thrill rides! If you have already seen this pair of films, I apologize in advance for providing selections whith which you are already familiar. Regardless, I have greatly enjoyed this topic! :)

Hi and welcome to the forums, soon we will have a list of all the movies to review here in the forums, as you have seen a lot of movies, we would love to see your reviews, as for the gems, that is dificult and tricky if I don't know about your likes, maybe if you give us a little help with it? XD

I Will give you a list and you are going to tell me if is a sci fi movie to you and if is your style of movie or not. Maybe I know some not so popular movies, if I can put them in the list of gems of all the times, I'm not sure of it.

ok the list :

sunshine 2007, snowpiercer, europa report, gattaca, the zero theorem, jurassic park, coherence, automata, dawn of the planet of the apes, x men, blade runner, the thing, aien, the signal, 12 monkeys, lucy, edge of tomorrow, 28 days later, gravity, circle, the fith element, mad max, I origins, the purgue, spring, trollhunter, robocop, under the skin, interstelar, upside down-

some of them are already in the review section, some of them are going to be added soon, let me know what worthwhile material we are missing here, that we are not considering yet in our list (we might wait few days to get the whole list of movies to review yet)

 

The world will spin well past our last breath, but I will always care about you

hey SR! :D screamers! oh yup, I know that movie under other name.

And indeed the zero theorem could be better, and snowpiecer, some ppl didnt like it, I can't see the reason, I liked it and enjoyed it a lot- 

Do you have any gems to share with us?  I bet SR would to know them as much I want it. 

I will feature this thread so hopefully we will get movies added to the list.

Are you interested in short movies?

Here's a bunch more I thought of:

Pandorum, District 13, Unbreakable, Triangle, Aeon Flux, The Crazies, Ed Wood, A Clockwork Orange, 28 Days Later, The Time Machine (1969), Invasion of the Body Snatchers,  Cloverfield, Robocop (1986), Panic in the Year Zero, Logan's Run, Capricorn One, Brazil, Wizards, Cowboy Bebop, The Wings of Honneamise, The Day the Earth Caught Fire, The Butterfly Effect, Paycheck, Escape from New York, Outland, The Fly, Gattaca, No Blade of Grass, The Blood of Heroes, The Boys from Brazil, Videodrome, Slaughterhouse Five.

These films fall mainly into the sub genres of Dystopian, Social and Environmental, Sci Fi/Horror, Post Apocalyptic, Anime and a bit of Zombie carnage. I like films that stimulate the intellect and get the old brain working a bit. They won't be everybodys cup of Romulan Ale, I personally can't stand Space Opera/Fantasy/Superhero films, hence the Star Trek reference! But if you appreciate  intelligent, thought provoking, Science Fiction, these are all definitely worth the effort to check out

Somnio, an independent sci-fi thriller written and directed by Pandorum's Travis Milloy, has been completed and has already appeared in two US film festivals, winning best screenplay at Boston SciFi and the Audience Award at Fantastic Film in Little Rock, Arkansas.

See https://www.facebook.com/Somnio-158888377602599/

Next it's due to be shown at Sci-Fi London at 7pm on Saturday 30th April -http://sci-fi-london.com/festival/2016/programme/feature/somnio

Now looking for distribution deals!

(I'm involved in the film so I hope this isn't seen as spam...)

CREATURE (1985) starring Klaus Kinski.  A rather low-budget Alien rip-off but a fantastic performance by Kinski helps make this one of my guilty pleasures.  Some of the special effects were done by the same company that would do some of the effects for Aliens the next year.  Well worth watching.

Well, over a year later I can finally give a major and very exciting update.
Somnio secured a distribution deal and is now renamed Infinity Chamber, with a September release date.

Sunshine, which was directed by Danny Boyle. The Adventures of Buccaroo Bonzai. Peter Weller was the star and for some reason I do love that movie. Brazil, not sure if it is really sci fi but thought it was worth a mention.

I second "The Arrival" from 1996. It's a great movie. BUT DON'T WATCH THE TRAILERS

Also ignore the sequel, it's a direct to video turd from what I recall
