It really sums up all the fears of mortality and spiritual belief within one two hour movie, few science fiction movies dare to be as relevant or bold. While it… More

Ever since Star Trek first arrived on our screens, it's been almost fashionable to dismiss science fiction as little more than enjoyable pantomime hogwash.… More

I love this movie. It's not groundbreaking, but it is entertaining and thought-provoking.
