This is a list of what many people consider to be the best science fiction films of all time.
1. 2001: A Space Oddysey – This film was released in 1968 by filmmaker Stanley Kubrick. As well as being a great space adventure film, it brings up evolutionary and philosophical questions.
2. A Clockwork Orange – This film was banned in Britain for the longest time because it was considered too gruesome to be viewed by an audience. It was also thought that it would insight crime. However, the film is essentially about the human mind and what it is capable of doing.
3. Children Of Men – Based on the book by P.D. James, this film won world-wide appraise for its vision of the future. It shows the year 2019, as a year where society has collapsed due to no more children being born. As far-fetched as this film may be, it shows what might happen to us humans when society no longer functions.
4. The Island – This summer-action film from Michael Bay, was not only a fun film, but an interesting one. It spoke about the dangers of cloning humans and the possible repercussions of our actions. It shows how being human is a privilege not to be taken lightly.
5. Fahrenheit 451 – This film has become a cult classic since it is rarely known by people of than the science-fiction community. It tells of a world where books are burned and humans are obsessed with television and technology. The film shows how we should always be aware of the real world, and not focused on just our own lives.
This is a concept that has not really been talked about in science fiction. Imagine if you will, a huge spaceship, floating among the stars. Inside the ship are thousands of humans, asleep in hibernation. They are on a journey to another planet. While they are sleeping, they are hooked up to a virtual reality machine that simulates a life on earth. Seems far-fetched, right? Not really. Think about it. The first humans will be going to Mars in the next hundred years. The only way a human could survive the long journey would be through constant hibernation. The body is frozen into position and the heart slows down. The humans would be awakened when the ship has reached its destination.
So we know that this whole idea is plausible. But lets go back to what I was talking about with the entire human population. Suppose that by the end of the 22nd century, Earth has become a wasteland. Nothing will grow and there is no hope for the future. In response to this crisis, space agencies of the world come together and form a huge ship that will transport the human population to another side of the galaxy. While they are on the journey, they are unaware they are on a ship because they are in sleep hibernation. In this hibernation state, they are living out their life as if they were still on earth.
