  1. 1Ghost in the Shell


    Ghost in the Shell has been one of the most influential films in the cyberpunk sub-genre. It is a classic science fiction film by which a lot of other films and shows take cues and inspiration from. Out of all the ideas that it tried to explore, a "connected world" was one of the most intriguing ones and has striking similarities to our world today.

  1. 2Akira


    Akira is considered by many as one of the greatest animated science fiction films of all time. It has been often compared to Pulp Fiction for the impact and influence that it has made to the Japanese animation industry when it first came out nearly 4 decades ago.

  2. 3The Iron Giant


    The Iron Giant is one of those easy animated science fiction film recommendations to make. It's a film that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Underneath the surface though, the film tackles some very philosophical themes such as "can a weapon have a soul?"

  1. 4Wall-E


    To this day, WALL-E remains as one of the best animated science fiction films ever made by Pixar. From the spectacular visuals to its charming protagonist, and of course, its thought-provoking story that even older audiences can appreciate, this is as good as they come.

  2. 5The Incredibles


    The Incredibles is Pixar doing what it does best, creating charming characters and amazing world-building, all enclosed within a beautiful and touching story. It is a well-rounded film filled with action, laughs, and heartfelt moments that any animated science fiction film fan will enjoy.

  3. 6Paprika


    Paprika is a science fiction film directly aimed at older audiences with its mature themes and complex story. It's a fascinating film that is subject to all kinds of interpretations and that is one of the reasons why it's so great and why it's also quite difficult to dissect properly.
