top movies science fiction

Science fiction has been with us since Wells and Verne. The cinema has put its mark on it and has offered us many masterpieces in the last decades. Netflix also has some very good titles in its catalog.

Minority Report

Released almost 20 years ago, Minority Report is still a must-see SF movie today. Of course, like many other feature films, it is the adaptation of a novel. In this film, we find Tom Cruise, but also Colin Farell, Steve Harris or Jessica Capshaw.

In this film, the future mixes utopia and dystopia. Crime has disappeared thanks to a proactive management of sentences. In short, one is arrested and convicted before committing the irreparable. But this can turn into a nightmare for those who are convinced that they will never kill!


In this film, we are also immersed in a dystopia. The Earth has been burned by the sun's rays and we survive more than we live. A former NASA pilot, played by Matthew McConaughey, discovers a secret NASA center. Held by Michael Caine and his daughter Anne Hathaway, the goal is to launch a rocket to a new habitable planet.

With this SF movie, Christopher Nolan shows all his know-how with an exciting and moving film. And then, the special effects are incredible!
