Martial arts! In terms of summer blockbusters, it brought all the ingredients: stunning visuals, big knockout fights and characters you actually care about. Superhero movies may be a zeitgeist-defining genre in and of themselves, but most of these colorful characters and concepts have straight-up science-fiction roots. Call it the In the Aeroplane Over the Sea of sci-fi flicks — a personal, dense, left-of-center work that time and a fervent fan base helped turn into a modern touchstone.
If this movie was made today, with exactly the same leading men and exactly the same premise, it would be a summer-season tent-pole. Set in the not-so-distant future of a post-apocalyptic England terrorized by flying, fire-breathing beasts who have awakened, ornery, from a eons-long hibernation , the film features an intense, shaven-headed Matthew McConaughey as an obsessive dragon hunter and Christian Bale as a meek farmer.

Review: 'What Still Remains' Puts a Fresh Spin on the Apocalyptic Thriller
Alton Meyer is a strange kid who has a penchant for tuning into frequencies no human ears can pick up like, say, intelligence agency satellites and can do amazing things with his eyes. Naturally, this makes him a person of interest to both religious cults and government spooks.
As we hit the road with our confused on-the-run hero, we realize that Midnight Special is more about our terrestrial problems than extraterrestrial invaders. Giant-monster flicks have always been about ecological destruction, and this one is no different. Using a incident of formaldehyde dumping in Seoul as inspiration, this South Korean tale of a creature emerging from the Han River — who not only attacks people, but infects them with a virus — broke box office records in its native country and set a new standard for nature-run-amok parables.
The diminutive action hero is at his self-mocking, amped-up best as Cage, a military P. Bourne Identity director Doug Liman dazzlingly stretches and twists that clever concept to its breaking point, finding seemingly infinite variations on how Cage can screw up. But MVP honors go to Emily Blunt as a hard-as-nails soldier who has to teach this lovable cad to become a proper warrior. Even she is just an operating system.

The Tide Series Box Set (Books 1-4): A Post-Apocalyptic Thriller
With Fury Road , the director delivers something close to a two-hour chase scene, as Max joins forces with steely warrior and slave-liberator Imperator Furiosa a badass Charlize Theron to rescue a group of young women from a resource-hoarding death-cult. From the unexpected character-depth to the geometry-defying high-speed standoffs, the movie is a prime example of how to balance thrilling postapocalyptic spectacle with a sober social message.
Warm, funny, and unafraid to get truly emotional RIP, Captain Solo , it made that galaxy far, far away feel closer to home than it had in ages. Quicker than you can say Robinson Crusoe on Mars, our hero is figuring out how to survive — and how to eventually get home.
Doing so could save your life one day, kids. Some science fiction movies do more than depict frightening innovations of a fictional kind — they unleash such advances themselves.
