Science Fiction has always played a pivotal role in cinema. It is a means by which we can look into the future and speculate as to what “could be”. Our only limit is our imaginations, and our imaginations provide an infinite number of possibilities. With that being said there have been some incredible films that allow us to look forward and wonder, “what if?”. Whether it is the existence of extra terrestrials or humankind’s self destructive nature – these possibilities are fascinating.
While it is easy to point to the Star Wars and Star Trek franchises because they are so iconic, we decided that would be too easy. Below are our favorite Science Fiction films that do not begin with the word “Star”. Did we miss something? Share your favorite with us on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comments below!

The 2012 Summer Movie Season is on and The City of Films has put together your guide of the must-see movies including each superhero extravaganza, highly anticipated blockbusters and the lesser known movies getting a limited release.
So sit back and grab a cold one as we take a look at this summer’s releases.
There is someone missing in this trailer for Total Recall, and that someone is Bryan Cranston who plays Chancellor Cohaagen, the leader of the free world. Not even a sound bite, what a shame. What we do get though is a very good look at just how big of a movie this remake is going to be, looks like they pulled out all the stops. Looking at the CGI (a lot of it), it looks a lot better than I,Robot did, so there’s that.
The trailer does a good job at explaining the plot as it doesn’t seem to be following the original’s step by step. Total Recall opens on August 3. Watch the trailer after the jump.
“This scene is unbelievable because my frustration is that this taxi cab does not understand where I want to go.”
This is from the actual commentary track on the Total Recall DVD. It’s been going around the Internet for days now, and for good reason. It was recorded ten years ago and captures Arnold Schwarzenegger’s old man complex perfectly. It’s real, I assure you. Sure movie commentary can be insightful and informative, but who wants that? I want someone telling me what’s happening on screen. Here you go:
