Best Sci-fi Movies Part 1 by Movies to Kill Time
Men in Black (1997)
Men in Black, based on the comic book series of the same name, was a fun, science fiction film that proved that the genre didn’t have to be serious to be worth watching. A secret organization, the Men in Black, is tasked with supervising extraterrestrial being on Earth — making sure they don’t get into any trouble, but also keeping the human beings around them safe, using memory-erasing “neuralysers”. The original film was turned into a franchise and spin-offs, but nothing comes close to capturing the delight of the first.
Rotten Tomatoes: 92%
Back to the Future (1985)
While it doesn’t have the cinematic seriousness of its 80s sci-fi contemporaries, Back to the Future nonetheless captured the spirit of the age. Or at least a very Michael J. Fox portrayal of it. Back to the Future Part II, released in 1989, took the somewhat less successful leap to a fanciful 2015. The final installment in the trilogy, released in 1990, added a Western spin on a tried-and-tested formula. But, in combination, the franchise’s self-lacing shoes, DeLoreans, and hoverboards have all rightfully earned Back to the Future a place in sci-fi cinema history.
