When I was a kid, I watched cartoons a lot, as my elders would not allow me to watch more than an hour because I was just a kid; I thought in my mind once I will be among elders, I would watch cartoons all day. However, today instead of watching cartoons, I am more inclined towards watching movies. As Hollywood is the oldest and largest film industry in the world, nearly every movie lover must have watched a movie from Hollywood and one thing that attracts non-English people to English movies is extensive use of visual graphics.
So my friends coming to visual graphics, Sci-Fi movies are probably the best ones. Here in this blog, I am going to list down the best Sci-Fi movies to watch. The basis on which I say the best is because of the following reasons:
- Amazing use of visual graphics
- Mind-boggling concepts from various branches of science.
- A very interesting storyline
- Best use of intense and slow music.
Although, all of these movies are one the best Sci-Fi movies and people may think that one is better than others but I have arranged these movies in ascending order in a way that non-English people would most like these movies.
Although, many may think that this movie should not be placed on 1st place in comparison with other movies but this movie follows a simple storyline of two passengers stranded in a spaceship along with 5000 other sleeping passengers. Reasons why you should watch this movie:
- One of the most stunning visual graphics of space and modern technology.
- A Sci-Fi movie with a love story included.
- A simple storyline to understand without going in past and future over and over again.
- It requires no knowledge of scientific concepts to understand any dialogue in this movie.
- Most Sci-Fi movies are longer up to 3 hours. This movie consists of only 1 hour and 50 mins.
Avatar was one of the earliest best Sci-Fi movies. It was released in 2009 but still rules the world of Sci-Fi movie lovers. It had one of the best visual graphics in its time. Although there are rumors of its sequels from nearly a decade, no official has confirmed them till yet. Reasons to watch avatar are:
- I was fantasized by the use of 3D visual graphics about nature in this movie.
- It has an excellent storyline to understand.
- It contains various jaw-dropping action scenes.
- One of the highest-grossing movies in the world. Prior to Avengers Endgame, Avatar was ranked number 1 in terms of doing business, earning a whopping 2.7 billion U.S dollars.
3. The Martian
The Martian is more of a survival type of story but it makes you feel like you are the one stranded on Mars. The Martian has also performed very well in the box office and is worth watching for non-English people who find it difficult to understand English movies. Reasons to watch this movie are:
- A movie making you feel emotional, funny, and confident to think that anything is possible.
- This movie had made me feel what it could be like to live on Mars, although not everything in this movie was correct but it gives you a fair idea.
- Stunning visual graphics of space travel and Martian surface.
Interstellar is considered as the masterpiece of Sci-Fi movies in the Hollywood film industry, directed by none other than of the most successful Hollywood directed Christopher Nolan; Interstellar explains on of the most complex physics concepts and theories in a story containing all elements of thriller, suspense, drama, and action. I didn’t keep this movie on the first rank because it is a bit difficult to understand, especially for non-English speakers.
Reasons to watch Interstellar are:
- It features cinematic scenes of space travel and other planets of the universe.
- Breathtaking scenes of space travel and docking.
- It contains one of the best musical scores from none other than Hans Zimmer.
- Explains a lot of scientific theories.
Inception is another great movie directed by Christopher Nolan. When I watched this movie, I began to suspect that am I really living my life or watching a dream? The movie contains a hell lot of suspense and action. The main story of the movie is based on incepting an idea in a man’s dream in such a way that he considers it a reality. However, it is a lengthy movie and requires serious attention to enjoy it.
Reasons to watch this movie are:
- The movie showcased a world full of possibilities, if I am in a dream and design it by myself then only sky is the limit.
- Another great music score from Hans Zimmer which amplifies suspense and action, along with exquisite cinematography.
- It gave me goosebumps in some occasions as it contained some emotional scenes too.
Ok, now many of you can argue that why I did not name movies like Avengers, Gravity, Batman, and many others. The reason is simple all of these movies are best but they are not easy to understand in one watch and one can only enjoy these movies completely if he is following the specific timelines of these movies which consists of different sequels and prequels.
The movies I mentioned here have no sequels or prequels. They are single movies containing a lot of Sci-Fi thriller. If you want to suggest some other movies too go ahead in the comment section, I would love to make another list.
P.S if you want links to watch these movies online you can ask in a comment, I would be replying with the link.
