Riro - Contributor

We've seen tons of movies that have managed to blow our minds away. Well, these titles don't necessarily have to be something with great CG or death-defying stunts. Sometimes, it just takes a well-written plot and a number of never-been-seen creatures to get moviegoers' attention for a full two-hour flick's duration. And what better genre is there that could use such elements well other than that of science fiction? Throughout the history of entertainment, Sci-Fi has introduced us to some of the most iconic species like E.T., Yoda, and Spock. Lots of TV shows have thrived under the helm of the genre. The list includes Westworld, Altered Carbon, and the phenomenal Black Mirror. Probably, most of us have at least one favorite Sci-Fi television staple. On the other hand, cinema has its own roster of flicks that feature flashy spaceships, laboratory experiments, and even creepy mongrels.

Arguably, there is no better venue to showcase science fiction grandeur than movie theaters. Experiencing an unimaginable story unfold on the big screen right before your very eyes is a sight to behold. While movies from this genre have often been associated with big budgets, large-scale productions, and innovative prosthetics, it all boils down to its overall effect on viewers. In the near future, there will surely be more and more unexplored areas of humanity that will be touched upon by screenwriters, most of whom will work on the next batch of great mind-blowing Sci-Fi movies.
