Science fiction movies generally have multiple layers to the story and concentrate on political, social and philosophical issues aside from the most obvious plot. Some movies even focus on the human condition and have hopeful ideas on the direction of the evolution of humankind and the numerous species on earth and the universe. As a result, Sci Fi films can’t be sometimes divided into one genre alone and cut across a lot of genres like drama, puzzle, action, etc.
Some of the most popular Sci Fi movies that have been released to the theatre audience in nearly the last half a century with a brief plot detail is as;
Star Wars Franchise : Spread across three decades, the franchise directed by George Lucas caused a cultural revolution with the light sabers and the Jedi Mind Tricks.
The Matrix : Released in 1999, directed by Andy Wachowski and Lana Wachowski, the Matrix took the world by storm with its striking computer effects, novel camera work and radical ideas on the fabric of fact.
Terminator 2 Judgment Day : Released in 1991, directed by the idealist director James Cameroon, this movie has a corresponding plot background as that of The Matrix foretelling an impending doom brought about by machines.
