Filmmaking was barely invented and was already emerging in science fiction: one of the most famous early films is Georges Malleus “A Journey to the Moon,” Since 1902.
Nearly 120 years later and the genre is ubiquitous, examining the relationship between time and space, exploring the world’s past, future, and alternative, and boldly examining whether a human, robot, or alien – or a combination of all three.
At its best, science fiction asks big questions. At its funniest time, it hints even more: will any writer ever detect time-loop contrasts? Why don’t they have self-guided weapons that never leave the future? Has “Avatar 2” gone through the wormhole in a way?
The complex relationship between a male human and a female android – or at least an android endowed with female physical characteristics and a melodious voice – has become a favorite subject in recent years. Gavin Rorty Confident debut Thanks to his sensitive handling of an affecting story, Starkley matches up with beautiful visuals (Rorty worked on the design of the Dirty Jones film “Moon”).
A brilliant engineer (Theo James, from the “Divergent” trilogy) is attempting to upload the stored personalities and memories of his late wife, Jules (Stacey Martin), into an artificial artificial intelligence that can experience emotion. In a wintry Japanese compound, George creates increasingly sophisticated versions of his J-series robot, until he must confront what he is really trying to achieve, and for whose benefit. A thoughtful reflection on grief, “Archive” slowly builds to a disastrously disastrous end.
Rambindu crew of Interstellar bears bad news: check. Chatty Android: Check. The mysterious little girl who holds the key to the plot: check. Evil CEO: Do you even need to ask?
If the “archive” is silent, deliberately and ambiguously elegant, which Sung-hee Boisterous, pop-colored space adventure Continuously threatens to explode outside the screen. Powered by excellent special effects, this action-packed Korean film is light on its feet and cleverly fun. The titular crew, led by the handsome pilot Kim Tae-ho (Song Jong-ki) and the charismatic Captain Jung (Kim Tae-ri), are basically a group of galactic scavengers who will somehow save the Earth in the future Help (note that, the Earth is always dying from a self-inflicted ecological wound). “Space Sweepers” is called Korean “Star Wars”, but it is close “Guardians of the Galaxy” – is still very much its own animal.
Despite no popular demand, Greg and Colin Straws’s mediocre alien invasion “Skyline” (2010) a sequel landed seven years later. Surprisingly, Liam O’Donnell “Beyond Horizon” Lots of fun with a gang of Lotian drug-runners (good people!), Mixed into the mix. The sequel introduces hybridization with pilots as a result of warring harvesters (a biomechanical species that resembles a predator mixed with a predator) and humans.
O’Donnell returned for the third installment, “Skylines” (Not to be confused with the crime series of the same title), which takes place five years later and takes place amidst an epidemic on Earth and a rogue thrill on the Harvester Base Cobalt Forest. The heroine Rose (Lindsay Morgan of “100”) leads the resistance and is assisted by a pilot named Trent (Jeremy FitzGerald), who is completely coincidental with any resemblance to a raging matrich (“aliens”) Does). There are big, ridiculous fights, narrow escapes, and Rono Mitra as a doctor trying to stop the virus. Works for me
There are so many stories of people trapped in the loops of time that viewers might think that they themselves are living that monstrous landscape. This Mexican film gets the most out of its small budget by getting rid of fat: a biking couple (Marimar Vega and Gorca Otexoa) are stuck on a repeat elevator ride running up to 10 floors; There is not a lot of time to explore your options before the reset. Director Daniel Bernal makes the most of the self-imposed obstacles and manages to come up with interesting-enough variations on both the romantic comedy (will the pair live together?) And the loop genre (an explanation, is a type).
Enthusiasts of this busy subscriber also get a “Map of Tiny Perfect Things” ()On amazon prime too), Which follows two teenagers (Kyle Allen and Catherine Newton), who find out about each other that they repeat the Ed Infinitum once a day. A major departure from the usual trope: they have the sweetness of the characters from the beginning, rather than drums as the only way to avoid the loop.
‘Time to hunt’
If you want to start a never ending debate, just wonder if “Alien” is horror or science fiction. Set in a dystopian world, the genre lines in this film are equally fluid: is it science fiction or is it action? It is certain that it is relentless – and it is once again one Korean film reenacts a genreWhat are you doing “Train to Busan” Done for zombie flicks and “Parasite” Oscar winners.
With its economy devastated and its currency devalued for doing nothing, South Korea was prevented by protests against the International Monetary Fund, while the lights of half of a large city went off. Having run out of options, the four-note decides to rob illegal gambling operations. Writer-director Yun Sung-hyun barrels through that stage… and then he Really Step on the gas. As the film progresses, the sci-fi context becomes inverted, as the focus tightens on a manhunt. By then you will be investing a lot in the characters’ original existence to learn about the fate of South Korea.
