Top 100 Fantasy Filme Our latest sci-fi movie reviews VideoTop 10 Fantasy movies 2016
Where our food comes from today is more shady and dystopian than ever. Show this one to an organics-only freak you love. Buy, rent or watch 'Soylent Green'.
The most renowned anime film made outside Studio Ghibli opens with an apparent nuclear explosion in Tokyo, ends with a Big Bang and hardly lets up in between.
The plot is far too unwieldy to be summarised here; suffice to say that it involves biker gangs, wrinkled little children and psychokinetic mutants wreaking havoc in a post-apocalyptic Japan.
Buy, rent or watch 'Akira'. All of which gave screenwriting brothers Jim and John Thomas an idea…. With Sly tied up with 'Rocky V', Arnie stepped in to play Dutch, the military tough guy who takes his top team of wisecracking mercenaries into the Latin American jungle to rescue American hostages, before terrorists turn out to be the least of their problems.
But of course the climax sees Old Ironballs taking the creature on single-handed, duking it out in the mud, mano-a-mano. Buy, rent or watch 'Predator'.
The world that the characters inhabit, at once futuristic and primordial, looks like a cross between Tatooine and a Dali dreamscape: dinosaurs mingle with tentacled aliens while headless humanoid statues abruptly spring to life.
Buy, rent or watch 'Fantastic Planet'. The set-up is fairly simple: an alien lands on Earth and tries to fit in while also having to sate an appetite for human flesh by assuming the form of a beautiful woman Johansson and luring keen men to their deaths.
Like much superior sci-fi, the genre elements mainly exist to cast new light on our world as it is. Buy, rent or watch 'Under the Skin'.
Satire in science fiction is nothing new — but creating a perfect balance of entertainment and politics requires a particular set of skills.
The attacks against American imperialism and Hollywood shallowness come thick and fast, culminating in one of the most striking images in all of sci-fi as Neil Patrick Harris, in full Gestapo dress, prepares to send a platoon of terrified teenage boys into battle.
Buy, rent or watch 'Starship Troopers'. Another film that balances on the edge of science fiction — perhaps explaining its relatively low placing on this list.
Rumours of a reboot emerge on an almost daily basis. Buy, rent or watch 'Ghostbusters'. Is Carl Sagan the unsung hero of modern science fiction?
Buy, rent or watch 'Contact'. Joaquin Phoenix plays Theodore Twombly, a middle-aged man who lives alone in an apartment overlooking a skyline of skyscrapers the film was partly shot in Shanghai and whose day job involves writing emotional handwritten letters on behalf of strangers.
Theodore is going through a divorce and falls head over heels in love with an operating system, Samantha, voiced by Scarlett Johansson.
Rather than go heavy on developments in technology, Jonze prefers to use them to explore more timeless ideas about love, relationships and what we expect from a partner.
Buy, rent or watch 'Her'. No one saw this one coming. Buy, rent or watch 'District 9'. Buy, rent or watch 'Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan'.
But is it all just a dream, a memory, a Messianic vision — or all of the above? The script is bursting at the seams with wild ideas.
Buy, rent or watch 'Total Recall'. Never a critical favourite, the French filmmaking magnate Luc Besson has resolutely persisted in following his own idiosyncratic taste, and this wayward fantasy has an individuality distinct from Hollywood formula.
But boy, did Besson assemble a crack team to visualise it. Buy, rent or watch 'They Live'. Unable to manage their waste output, humans have evacuated Earth, leaving robots behind to clean up the mess.
The film sags somewhat when WALL-E, after encountering and falling for fellow robot EVE, joins the humans read: Americans on their spaceship reportedly modelled on Dubai and Shanghai.
Buy, rent or watch 'WALL-E'. Soon enough, though, they have other problems to worry about, like the bouncy alien — who looks like a beach ball with claws — wandering the corridors, or the malfunctioning talking bomb that tries to existentially justify its need to explode and kill everyone onboard.
Buy, rent or watch 'Dark Star'. The next time you hear a friend bemoaning the Hollywood remake factory, send them a link to this list. As the film progresses, the clammy hand of paranoia tightens its grip — and the final shot is a sucker-punch like no other.
Buy, rent or watch 'Invasion of the Body Snatchers'. The film admirably credits the audience with the intelligence to decipher the clues in its elliptical narrative, gradually picking its way towards a state somewhere between paranoid anxiety and head-spinning dizziness.
Buy, rent or watch 'Primer'. For this story, Page and co are employed on an upping-the-ante mission: to insert rather than remove an idea into the head of a corporate bigwig Cillian Murphy in order to sate the ambitions of a business rival Ken Watanabe.
Most memorable are some jaw-dropping set pieces where Nolan and his team ostentatiously flex their special-effects muscles, most notably a scene that sees Page and DiCaprio walk through Paris as the streets appear to fold up and over before their eyes.
Buy, rent or watch 'Inception'. With his orange hair and a perceptible coked-up jitteriness, Bowie is perfect as the alien, Thomas Jerome Newton: spiky, awkward, uncomfortable in his own skin.
But the real stranger in this strange land was cult director Nicolas Roeg, fascinated by the American Southwest — its listless nurses the brilliant Candy Clark and bored college professors a fearless Rip Torn.
The movie is filled with daydreamers desperate for a sense of purpose. They instead find television, guns, alcohol and inertia. Buy, rent or watch 'The Man Who Fell to Earth'.
The result is wickedly smart and knowingly in-jokey without ever ahem alienating the non-nerds. Buy, rent or watch 'Galaxy Quest'.
In a future where plants have become extinct on earth, a handful of starships act as greenhouses, preserving the few remaining specimens in the hope of eventually reforesting the planet.
He rebels, kills his co-workers and heads off to tend to his plants with a couple of trusty robots in tow. The film may not have aged perfectly we can live without those willowy Joan Baez numbers , and Lowell is a bit of a blowhard.
But the message is eternal: whatever the risks, man must be his own saviour. Buy, rent or watch 'Silent Running'. Starring: James Purefoy , Max von Sydow , Pete Postlethwaite , Rachel Hurd-Wood.
Directed By: Michael J. Critics Consensus: A goofy, old-school sword-and-sandal epic, Clash of the Titans mines Greek mythology for its story and fleshes it out with Ray Harryhausen's charmingly archaic stop-motion animation techniques.
Starring: Harry Hamlin , Laurence Olivier , Judi Bowker , Claire Bloom. Directed By: Desmond Davis. Critics Consensus: This hotly-anticipated pairing of martial arts legends Jackie Chan and Jet Li features dazzling fight scenes but is weighed down by too much filler.
Starring: Jackie Chan , Jet Li , Michael Angarano , Collin Chou. Directed By: Rob Minkoff. Critics Consensus: Terry Gilliam remains as indulgent as ever, but The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus represents a return to the intoxicatingly imaginative, darkly beautiful power of his earlier work, with fine performances to match all the visual spectacle.
Starring: Heath Ledger , Christopher Plummer , Verne Troyer , Johnny Depp. Directed By: Terry Gilliam. Critics Consensus: Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children proves a suitable match for Tim Burton's distinctive style, even if it's on stronger footing as a visual experience than a narrative one.
Starring: Eva Green , Asa Butterfield , Chris O'Dowd , Allison Janney. Directed By: Tim Burton. Directed By: Victor Erice , Victor Erice.
Critics Consensus: While it's arguably more interesting on a visual level, Labyrinth provides further proof of director Jim Henson's boundless imagination.
