A.I. Artificial Intelligence - Paramount+

This film adaptation of Brian Aldiss' short story "Supertoys Last All Summer Long" began with legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick, but it remained frozen in development for decades until Steven Spielberg took the reins. Something of a 21st century "Pinocchio," this film follows David, a robot boy who longs to become a real human so he can finally fit in with his family. David's journey, which eventually carries him 2,000 years into the future, questions what it means to be human. A worthy entry in the sci-fi genre, "A.I." is one of Spielberg's most heartbreaking films and will definitely leave you reaching for the Kleenex by the time it's done.

  • Starring: Haley Joel Osment, Jude Law, Frances O'Connor
  • Director: Steven Spielberg
  • Year: 2001
  • Runtime: 146 minutes
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 76%

Aliens - Max

Leave it to James Cameron to pull off the impossible. "Aliens" is one of those rare sequels that not only lives up to the original but also, in some opinions, surpasses it. After surviving her ordeal on the Nostromo, Ellen Ripley has been in cryo-sleep for 57 years. She's woken by members of the Weyland-Yutani Corporation, who inform Ripley that a human colony now exists near the alien-infested ship Ripley visited in the first movie. She agrees to go investigate the colony, intending to wipe out the creatures once and for all. "Aliens" isn't as terrifying as its predecessor, but it's every bit as good, leaning way harder into the action genre than horror this time.

Arrival - Paramount+

From stunning visuals to emotional performances to a plot that keeps you guessing until the very end, there's plenty to love about 2016's "Arrival." When large alien ships enter the Earth's atmosphere all over the planet, humanity is prepared for the worst. As a result, linguist Louise Banks and physicist Ian Donnelly are brought in to figure out how to communicate with the aliens, and their discovery goes much further than simply learning a new language. Adapted from Ted Chiang's 1998 "Story of Your Life," this is one of the most unique and beautiful sci-fi movies out there.

Avatar: The Way of Water - Disney+, Max

We waited more than a decade for an "Avatar" sequel, and when James Cameron finally delivered, he didn't disappoint. "Avatar: The Way of Water" is a powerful return trip to Pandora. The movie catches up with Jake Sully and his family 16 years after the events of "Avatar." The Sullys got to enjoy a time of peace, but now the humans have returned, and they've brought along new threats and old enemies. To survive, the Sullys must make new friends — but no matter what they do, their story is really just beginning.

Cloverfield - Paramount+

"Cloverfield" combines the destruction of a good alien invasion story with the visceral feel of a found footage movie. Set in New York City, the film takes place over the course of a single night, as a mysterious giant creature begins ripping the city apart. Everyday guy Rob and his buddy venture through the chaotic streets on a mission to rescue their friend Beth before the creature levels her building. "Cloverfield" kicked off an entire sci-fi franchise, but nothing beats the original in terms of pure shocking impact.

"Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" continues the story from Rupert Wyatt's 2011 movie. It's been 10 years since Caesar and the simian flu escaped into the wide world. Huge portions of humanity have died, and in their place, a species of sentient apes have risen up. Caesar is now leader of a tribe living just outside the remnants of San Francisco, and though survival hasn't been easy, running into a band of human survivors makes his job harder than ever.

District 9 - Hulu

In 2009, writer/director Neill Blomkamp capitalized on the found-footage craze with "District 9," earning over $200 million against a budget of $30 million. The film is set in Johannesburg, South Africa, where alien refugees have been living in an encampment called District 9 for more than three decades.

  • Director: Neill Blomkamp
  • Year: 2009
  • Runtime: 112 minutes
  • Rating: R
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 90%

Donnie Darko - Peacock

"Donnie Darko" is mind-bending sci-fi at its best. The film's bizarre story and the looming sense of unease behind every scene might be why it bombed at the box office. Despite the flop, "Donnie Darko" has become a cult classic in the years since its release. The story centers on teenage outcast Donnie, who begins having visions of a demonic looking rabbit suit named Frank warning him about the coming end of the world. The film is perfect for anyone who likes their stories layered and open-ended.

Dune (2021) - Max, Netflix

Published in 1965, Frank Herbert's "Dune" is a sci-fi landmark, one that tells a story of powerful families, religious wars, and the legacy of imperialism in an expansive galaxy. There have been multiple attempts to adapt the book for the screen, including a David Lynch version released in 1984, but no attempt has come close to the success of Denis Villeneuve's 2021 adaptation. The film perfectly captures the essence of Herbert's novel, effortlessly conveying the scope and scale of the space age epic. The first film in a two-part series, "Dune" only tells half a story, but with its pitch-perfect casting, mind-blowing effects and camerawork, and Oscar-winning score from Hans Zimmer, it perfectly sets up Frank Herbert's incredible world.

Dune (1984) - Max

David Lynch's "Dune" doesn't manage to accurately adapt its source material, and it's not nearly as entertaining as it might have been, but for any fan of the genre, it's 100% worth watching. "Dune" features some truly imaginative imagery, from its spaceships to its alien races to its exotic locales. The story is unwieldy and deeply goofy at times, but whether you're a major "Dune" fan interested in the franchise's history or simply looking to kick back and go for a wild ride through the universe, there's something for you to enjoy about this not-quite cult classic.

  • Starring: Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Patrick Stewart
  • Director: David Lynch
  • Year: 1984
  • Runtime: 136 minutes
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 44%

Event Horizon - Paramount+

Though it bombed critically when it was first released, "Event Horizon" has gained a steady following of fans in the decades since. An experimental engine designed for interdimensional travel was tested by the ship Event Horizon ... which then promptly disappeared. When it reappears orbiting Neptune, astronauts are sent to retrieve the ship and to discover what happened to its crew. Once aboard the lost ship, our heroes quickly realize that some kind of evil entity from another dimension has possessed the ship and is bent on terrorizing and killing them all. "Event Horizon" has a unique premise, haunting visuals, and more than enough scares for an entertaining horror film.

  • Starring: Sam Neill, Laurence Fishburne, Jason Isaacs
  • Director: Paul W. S. Anderson
  • Year: 1997
  • Runtime: 96 minutes
  • Rating: R
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 34%

Everything Everywhere All at Once - Paramount+ with Showtime, Prime Video

This mind-bending comedy made a huge splash when it debuted in March 2022, and it's been raking in awards ever since. "Everything Everywhere All at Once" takes disillusioned laundromat owner Evelyn Wang and her family on an interdimensional journey unlike any adventure through the multiverse you've ever seen before. Along the way, there's hot dog fingers, everything bagels, and Michelle Yeoh and Ke Huy Quan giving all-time performances. Directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert created a masterpiece that is equal parts hilarious and heartwarming and manages to pack in some incredible martial arts set pieces to boot.

Ex Machina - Max

Alex Garland's directorial debut, "Ex Machina" examines the relationship between humans and artificial intelligence and questions the line between man and machine. Nathan Bateman is a tech CEO who's invented an AI in a robot body that he calls Ava. Bateman invites programmer Caleb Smith to his remote estate to help him determine whether or not Ava is truly a thinking and feeling being. But soon, the three of them become involved in a cat-and-mouse game of manipulation that puts all of their lives in danger.

Godzilla vs. Kong - Max, Hulu

"Godzilla vs Kong" is a globe-trotting adventure marked by a number of giant monster fights. Kong is on a quest to find his true home — which just might have something to do with the hollow Earth theory — but he's not the only mega-sized creature with an agenda. Godzilla is wreaking havoc, and when the two creatures go head-to-head, humans are caught in the middle of the madness. This movie proved that a "Godzilla" and "King Kong" crossover story can work better than anyone expected.

  • Starring: Alexander Skarsgård, Millie Bobby Brown, Brian Tyree Henry
  • Director: Adam Wingard
  • Year: 2021
  • Runtime: 113 minutes
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 75%

Gravity - Netflix

"Gravity" is full of spectacular space visuals and hyper-tense moments. Sandra Bullock stars as Dr. Ryan Stone, an astronaut on her very first mission. George Clooney's Matt Kowalski, on the other hand, is getting ready to retire. But both of their plans are disrupted when their shuttle is destroyed and they're thrown into the vastness of space. With nothing but the oxygen supplied by their suits, their odds of survival are low, and they need to come up with a desperate plan to stay alive.

Saving their friend means digging into Rocket's past and encountering some dark secrets, alongside the most dangerous enemy the Guardians have come up against.

With Earth increasingly rocked by climate disasters, former NASA pilot Joseph Cooper is tapped to lead an expedition into deep space to find a new home for humans. The movie is powered by real scientific concepts and filled with the kind of epic space visuals that harken back to "2001: A Space Odyssey." While the film's final act received heavy criticism, as a whole, "Interstellar" is phenomenal and an absolute must for fans of space-centered sci-fi.

  • Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain

  • Year: 2014
  • Runtime: 169 minutes
  • Rating: PG-13

"The Iron Giant" is one of the most beloved animated movies of the 1990s. Based on Ted Hughes' 1968 novel, the film is set in the late '50s and follows a young boy named Hogarth, who has his life changed forever by an extraterrestrial encounter. A robot falls out of the sky, and Hogarth quickly becomes friends with the giant iron alien. Unfortunately, the government sees the robot as a massive threat, and it's up to Hogarth to save the Iron Giant before he's destroyed.

  • Rating: PG
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 96%

Having accomplished this goal, he invites a small group of experts to tour the park — but not long after they arrive, the dinosaurs break free of their enclosures.

Mad Max: Fury Road - Max

"Mad Max: Fury Road" is technically a legacy sequel, and it's one of the best we've ever seen. Set in the same desert-covered post-apocalyptic world as the original "Mad Max" trilogy, "Fury Road" catches up with Max as he encounters a strange new society led by the murderously evil tyrant Immortan Joe. The movie takes you on a two hour-long, high-octane chase filled with some of the most outrageous practical stunts you'll ever see. "Fury Road" is arguably the best "Mad Max" movie, and it's definitely one of the very best action movies of the 2010s.

  • Starring: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult
  • Director: George Miller
  • Year: 2015
  • Runtime: 120 minutes
  • Rating: R

Computer hacker Neo believes that there's a deep secret in the world, and his search for the truth puts him in contact with underground figures Trinity and Morpheus. With their help, Neo steps through the looking glass, so to speak, and enters a world unlike anything that he could have possibly imagined, becoming involved in a war for the fate of humanity itself. Revolutionary filming techniques were developed to capture the film's unique action sequences, and the influence of "The Matrix" can still be felt in movies today. While the sequels are divisive, "The Matrix" is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Cady and M3GAN quickly become best friends — but M3GAN is willing to go to violent lengths to ensure Cady's happiness. "M3GAN" is a satisfying blend of horror and comedy, and streaming fans get to see the unrated cut of the movie that didn't make it into theaters.

  • Starring: Allison Williams, Violet McGraw, Ronny Chieng
  • Director: Gerard Johnstone
  • Year: 2022
  • Runtime: 102 minutes
  • Rating: PG-13
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 93%

Minority Report - Paramount+

Based on the tale from Philip K. Dick, "Minority Report" envisions a future where access to precognitive abilities has made it possible for police to capture criminals before they ever commit a crime. John Anderton doesn't question the morality of his work in the Precrime program –- that is, until his name comes up as a future murderer. John goes on the run, desperately trying to find a way to prove that he's innocent of a crime that hasn't yet occurred. With the legendary Steven Spielberg behind the camera, "Minority Report" is a fantastic exploration of a tantalizing premise.

Nope - Peacock

After stunning audiences with his directorial debut "Get Out" and continuing to impress with his follow-up film "Us," Jordan Peele pulled off a hat trick with 2022's "Nope." Keke Palmer and Daniel Kaluuya star as the Haywood siblings, who are continuing their family business of raising horses on a ranch in California. One night the Haywoods discover that a massive UFO above their ranch has been abducting their horses, but they see a new opportunity for profit and try to capture footage of the UFO that they can sell to the media. The result is heart-pounding film that mixes sci-fi, horror, and the Western genres and takes you places that you'll never see coming.

Prey - Hulu

"Predator" has been a sci-fi staple since it debuted in 1987, but over the years, various installments in the franchise have failed to recreate the impact of the first film. Whether "Prey" surpasses the original is debatable, but director Dan Trachtenberg and screenwriter Patrick Aison have absolutely reinvigorated the franchise. Powered by a stunning lead performance from Amber Midthunder, "Prey" tells the action-packed story of a Predator facing off against Comanche warriors on the Great Plains in the early 18th century. Seeing the Predator in a brand new environment is exciting, and watching an outmatched young hero take on the universe's greatest killer is exhilarating.

Quarantine - Max

2008's "Quarantine" is a remake of the 2007 Spanish film "Rec," and though it doesn't quite live up to its source material, it's still a great example of just how terrifying found footage films can be. The film follows a reporter and her cameraman, who are working on a project about firefighters. They follow a call that leads them into an apartment building where a virus has broken out, transforming its victims into violent monsters. By the time they realize what's going on, the building has been quarantined by the CDC, and they're left to survive the night by themselves.

  • Rating: R
  • Rotten Tomatoes Score: 55%

RoboCop - Max

The '80s have a crowded field of great sci-fi action movies, but "RoboCop" stands out as one of the best. Set in a dystopian Detroit, the film follows beat cop Alex Murphy who gets transformed into a law enforcement cyborg after suffering a near-fatal injury on the job. "RoboCop" mixes a healthy serving of biting satire into its over-the-top violence to create an experience that will keep you laughing even while you're on the edge of your seat through the intense action set pieces.

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse - Netflix

The sequel to the critically acclaimed "Into the Spider-Verse," "Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse" raises the bar even higher in terms of animated storytelling. In this sprawling superhero epic, Miles Morales finds himself journeying across the multiverse in an attempt to stop The Spot — a villain who can portal across time and space and who might be the biggest threat the universe has ever seen. Along the way, Miles will have to set his own path, defeat the destiny that's been mapped out for him, and find himself in a world where everyone's trying to tell him who he should be.

His storyline is bolstered by Gwen Stacy's, who gets her time to shine as a conflicted hero torn between family, duty, and love. With plenty of fun new Spider-People, tons of Easter eggs, a killer soundtrack, and multiple animation styles — ranging from water colors to LEGOs — "Across the Spider-Verse" is peak superhero cinema and one of the finest sci-fi movies that's ever swung across the screen.

They use the latest in high-tech gadgetry and super-spy techniques to rescue their parents from Fegan Floop (Alan Cumming), an evil genius who uses devious mutations to turn his enemies into thumb-shaped henchmen.

When Kirk discovers that Spock's spirit may still be alive, he takes off with the Enterprise and risks everything to take his friend's body home.

Before he was famous for mega-disaster movies like "Independence Day" and "2012," Roland Emmerich directed this sci-fi flick about ancient aliens, portals, and interstellar travel that inspired a plethora of TV shows. When a mysterious alien gateway is discovered in an Egyptian pyramid, professor Daniel Jackson and Colonel Jack O'Neil step through it and enter an alien world that's modeled itself on ancient Egypt. If they want to return home through the stargate, they'll need to take advantage of alien technology and help overthrow the planet's all-powerful dictator.

In "Swan Song," Mahershala Ali stars as Cameron Turner, a husband and father who's been diagnosed with a terminal illness.
