From classic sci fi to modern adaptations, this list of Netflix Sci Fi in Spetember is sure to have something for every Sci Fi Junkie out there! The list includes great titles like The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Thor: Dark World. Read through and comment on what you’re excited to see on Netflix and in theaters this year!
The Reconstruction Of William Zero
Director Dan Bush may have overreached a little with The Reconstruction of William Zero, but the interesting premise might be enough to entertain you on a rainy day. Told from two perspectives, the movie follows William Blakely, a brilliant geneticist who awakes from a car crash with virtually no memory of his former life. William must relearn his own history through his twin brother, but as you can imagine, that doesn’t go quite as smoothly as he would hope.
Produced by geek icon Zachary Quinto, Banshee Chapter is a sci-fi horror movie that’s just perfect for a cooler September evening. Taking real-life events as its inspiration, Banshee Chapter blends major scares with a surprisingly thought-provoking premise that sees a journalist uncover information about a top-secret government-funded drug that alters the human brain with disturbing consequences.
If you’re a fan of martial artist Jet Li, you’ll probably enjoy the trip down memory lane ‘The One’ offers. However, if you’re not a Jet Li fan, there’s really very little we can say that’s positive about this movie. Prepare for 90 minutes of Jet Li kicking himself in the face, and Jason Statham with a surprising amount of hair on his head.
Aliens On The Moon: The Truth Exposed
Break out your tinfoil hats folks, because aliens have been using the moon as a special base of operations for all sorts of nasty E.T shenanigans…or at least that’s what this documentary will have you believe. Aliens on the Moon actually features some interesting testimony from top sources like NASA Astronaut Buzz Aldrin, but may be a bit too ‘out there’ for the average geek. Where are Mulder and Scully when you need them?
Nic Cage looking confused as people disappear and planes fall out of the sky. This is bad, but at least it’s Nic Cage bad.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
The Hunger Games saga makes comes to an end this November, so now is the perfect time to catch up with where we last left Katniss and co. Mockingjay Pt.1 sees the battle between the districts and the capitol kicked up a notch, but as usual Katniss has some emotional issues to work through before we can all get on with this whole coup d’état. Mockingjay Pt.1 is arguably the best movie of the Hunger Games franchise so far, and it’s well worth another watch.
Ryan Reynolds and Jeff Bridges play undead police officers who roam Boston looking to put evil spirits to rest. It’s as silly as it sounds, but maybe you can watch it and just think how good Deadpool is going to be next February?
From Beyond is one of those classic horror movies that’s more funny than it is scary. It’s a healthy dose of nostalgia when the monsters first start showing up, and the fun never really stops. Break out the popcorn and watch this one in a group.
Night of the Comet
How would a couple of Valley girls deal with being two of the last people on Earth? With lots of shopping and classic 1980’s montages, of course! Night of the Comet rips into countless 80’s era sci-fi horrors, but never with a lack of respect. It’s all enough to make you kind of wish the world was going to end, leaving just you and your best pal to romp through the streets of L.A.
Stargate: The Ark of Truth
Maybe just watch the TV show instead?
Thor: The Dark World (film, 2013)
Definitely not one of the MCU’s best efforts, Thor: Dark World failed to capture the magic of its predecessor and struggles with one of the worst villains Marvel has ever produced. But despite all that, Thor: Dark World is still a better than average comic book movie and definitely deserves to be re-watched along with the over MCU offerings on Netflix.
