The best science fiction movies of the last 15 years

by Stewart Cole

But Gravity he also brought plenty of substance to keep up with this style. The best interpretation of Sandra Bullock’s career as an astronaut trapped in orbit and forced to improvise through one horrific life or death scenario after another is aptly seductive, as Bullock carries the film almost entirely on her own. But there is also a perfect actor George Clooney as her partner, bringing his typically aggressive sense of humor to the infinitely cold and relentless void. They are a masterful couple in a similar masterful film. – Mike Cecchini

16. Pacific Rim (2013)

Guillermo del Toro Pacific Rim is, quite simply, the most magnificent giant robot vs. Kaiju movie you have ever seen. Get some Godzilla, some Ultraman, drop some Robotech and Gundam and then cool it down with the quirky beautiful style of del Toro and you will have Pacific Riman overproduction so bizarre and wonderful that it is almost hard to believe that studio executives actually allowed it to exist from the beginning.

Set in the near future where Kaiju destroy the world for most of a decade, Pacific Rim tells of how humanity counterattacked through mentally, heavily armed giant engineers known as Jaegers. If this has not sold you already, maybe Pacific Rim it’s not for you. On the other hand, it is perhaps the ultimate evolution of Toho, Toei, and other fare aesthetics vendors Kaiju and Tokusatsu, exchanging “man-in-suit” ridiculousness for some of the best special effects of the 21st century and tackling an idea often rejected. as inherently foolish with reverence and love. – MC

Cast of the Guardians of the Galaxy

15. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Throughout the highly successful Marvel Cinematic Universe series of 27 films, few directors have been given the freedom to pursue a particularly elegant vision. MCU has to do with storytelling well and effectively, but “style” is occasionally sacrificed on the altar of “history”. Then came James Gunn with the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie, a movie so different from the rest of MCU production that you would hardly think it was part of the same franchise.

Gunn gave fans an authentic, old-fashioned space opera with the kind of aesthetic science fiction lived by fans of the original Star Wars trilogy and the era of Tom Baker Doctor Who with more than one color dash that would not look out of place to Mike Hodges Flash Gordon. As if that were not enough, Gunn made one of the most memorable soundtracks of recent years, full of AM radio, power pop and glam rock… and made sure there was a reason in history for these songs to be played inside the spacecraft. Sure, it’s full of Marvel Comics characters, locations, and ideas, but before this movie, Groot, Rocket, Gamora, Drax, and Star-Lord were not exactly well-known names. Well, it certainly is now, and all thanks to this wonderful piece of science fiction, with Nari a superhero on the horizon. – MC

Felicity Jones in Rogue One

14. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story (2016)

Before we got the right term for “legacy sequels” in 2012, Disney was busy with Star Wars back to the big screen. The design of the studio? Back to the roots of the franchise created in 1977. The result was in 2015 The Force Awakensa movie that looked like something out of a remake A new HOPE at that time, and much more until the end of the Continuity Trilogy. And for its next trick, Disney reviewed it A new HOPE Well, but this time with a prequel film, of 2016 Rogue One, the story of the agents of the revolutionaries who stole the designs of Death Star, also known as MacGuffin from the original film. Overall, it is a much better film and undoubtedly does a better job of celebrating George Lucas’s legacy than the 2015 copy.
