Alma is a scientist at Berlin’s famous Pergamon Museum. In order to obtain research funds for her studies, she accepts an offer to participate in an extraordinary experiment. For three weeks, she must live with a humanoid robot with artificial intelligence designed to allow it to morph into that of her ideal life partner. Enter Tom, a machine in human form, created to make her happy.

I blame myself for postponing to watch this movie. It has strong competitors like Ex Machina, not too much of a budget, and yet exceeded all the expectations. Acting is…

Don’t Look Up

Comedy, Drama, Science Fiction

Two low-level astronomers must go on a giant media tour to warn humankind of an approaching comet that will destroy planet Earth.

One of these times when I have to give credit to the Hollywood for the good looking big budget films. I've been missing these in the pandemic and as a…

Science Fiction, Adventure

Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence-a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential-only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Not quite as good as the Blade Runner though a nice cinematic experience. Patient viewers are rewarded the most but even Die Hard fans should appreciate this more than today's…

Science Fiction, Thriller, Drama, Mystery

Kept locked inside the house by her father, 7-year-old Chloe lives in fear and fascination of the outside world, where Abnormals create a constant threat—or so she believes. When a mysterious stranger offers her a glimpse of what’s really happening outside, Chloe soon finds that while the truth isn’t so simple, the danger is very real.

A great little surprise in the science-fiction genre. I had a doubt about superhero theme but totally no complaints after watching the movie

Two brothers return to the cult they fled from years ago to discover that the group’s beliefs may be more sane than they once thought.

Started slow, ended up as one of the best cult movies I‘ve seen. If I was about to pick the single best thing about this movie, it would be how…

Thirty years after the events of the first film, a new blade runner, LAPD Officer K, unearths a long-buried secret that has the potential to plunge what’s left of society into chaos. K’s discovery leads him on a quest to find Rick Deckard, a former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for 30 years.

Didn’t expect it to be so good. Not sure what I like more: this one or the original Blade Runner. The cinematography is absolutely worth the Oscar it got, Gosling…

A spacecraft traveling to a distant colony planet and transporting thousands of people has a malfunction in its sleep chambers. As a result, two passengers are awakened 90 years early.

Extremely underrated movie. Maybe because it isn’t an action sci-fi as the trailer suggests. I thought to watch the beginning and turn it off if it seems too mainstream. But…

After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack.

A rare example on how to be unique without being pretentious. Having been filmed in a claustrophobic environment, this movie doesn’t have some kind or forced drama, nor it is…

In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

You might even want to turn this off and watch some action. It starts weird, pretentious and slow. Just like Swiss Army Man, which is another level of pretentiousness, which…

Caleb, a 26 year old coder at the world’s largest internet company, wins a competition to spend a week at a private mountain retreat belonging to Nathan, the reclusive CEO of the company. But when Caleb arrives at the remote location he finds that he will have to participate in a strange and fascinating experiment in which he must interact with the world’s first true artificial intelligence, housed in the body of a beautiful robot […]

There‘s a lot going on in this technically minimalistic sci-fi. The movie is futuristic and cold, but also clever, entertaining and emotional. Add good acting and stylish scenography, and you…
