Interstellar is not a movie but it is the science of extreme time dilation. 

Another Christopher Nolan masterpiece featuring the story about Earth’s last chance to find a habitable planet before a lack of resources causes the human race to go extinct.  

Matthew McConaughey is the protagonist of this movie playing the role of a former NASA pilot who is tasked with leading a mission through a wormhole to find a habitable planet in another galaxy. 

Under the influence of a strong gravitational field time slows down, but gravity isn’t the only thing that can warp time.

One line to sum it up “Don’t try to understand it, feel it”. 

The story of a secret agent who learns to manipulate the flow of time to prevent an attack from the future that threatens to annihilate the present. It’s been said that Mr. Nolan took more than five years to write the screenplay. 

A Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold something beyond real-time. Christopher Nolan’s masterpiece is not time but mind inversion. 

HIGHLIFE

Beautifully directed by Claire Dennis, starring Robert Patterson, Juliette Benosh did a splendid job in portraying a story about a space travelers’ survival in a dangerous space mission. The story isn’t about how they got there but what happens throughout their journey which will surely leave your mind boggled in big time.  

After watching it at least for once you’ll question if humanity ever existed in a short out-of-the-box thinking movie.  

Although not a commercial success if you want a break from the typical sci-fi movies and watch something different then you’re going to enjoy this movie without a shadow of a doubt.

HOTEL ARTEMIS

If you’re thinking about a hotel scenario after reading the title, I’ll suggest don’t get fooled by it. 

Hotel Artemis isn’t a hotel but a secret hospital for criminals. 

With Jodie Foster heading the institution with a story as when three criminals get admitted to the hospital after robbery initiates chaos initiates as many others get involved. 

An action-packed criminal movie based on a sci-fi dystopian theme, sounds interesting right?    

Hands down to Jodie Foster for being the best thing in this movie and also her first appearance since 2013. Other characters such as Sterling K Brown, Sophia Patella, Dave Bautista were true to their characters with great action scenes. 

THE MAN WHO FELL TO EARTH

Going retro this time, The Man Who Fell to Earth was released back in 1976 but doesn’t seem so old considering the evergreen concept of aliens falling in love with humans. 

Being a movie adaptation with the same name novel the plot is quite simple and predictable but this classic is one of the best sci-fi movies of that era.

Even after 44 years of the film’s release, this movie has maintained its cult status due to the storytelling and the visualization, not to mention David Bowie’s charismatic presence throughout the movie which was also his first major movie as a lead.   

THE VAST OF NIGHT

Despite being a mini-budget film with not so well-known cast, it has the charm to put you in a trance. 

The story starts when two friends come across some weird radio frequencies which forced them to investigate the impossible. The sci-fi movie that came out in early 2020 is loosely but truly based on some UFO incidents. 

With stellar reviews from both the audiences and critics, this movie has bagged several prestigious awards proving the concept is the key to making a good movie, not budget. 

ANNIHILATION

Alex Garfield’s visual masterpiece comes with a blend of science fiction and horror accompanied by a weird but twisted storyline, starring Natalie Portman as the lead playing the role of Lena.  

The 2018 movie plotting the expenditure of a group of scientists trying to figure out the mystery of an extraterrestrial phenomenon happening on the American coastline.

Talking about teleportation, imagine being teleported to an Egypt-like planet using an interstellar gateway. 

Ruled by the ruthless tyrant who is an alien disguised as human and to get back to earth you must defeat him which sounds like a quest. 

With Kurt Russell, James Spader as the protagonist, and Jay Davidson as the alien reprised role this 1994 masterpiece is a fusion of science fiction and adventure. With a compelling story and detailed graphics work, Stargate was successful in earning both money and worldwide recognition.
