 Science Fiction Movie Posters
Movie posters are among the most sought-after of all collectors' items, and science fiction films from the period 1950-64 constitute one of the hottest categories in movie poster collecting.
The 1950s science fiction boom, however, produced posters in marked contrast to the generally drab look of those for “serious film.”; Most '50s SF movies were exploitation vehicles targeted at teenagers; they were not, to say the least, regarded as important by film studios.
Movie posters, unlike comics, toys, baseball cards, and other high-dollar pop collectibles, were never produced for the public in large quantities.

 The Matrix
The movie is totally rad because it is about everything that all of us in the Sci-Fi Club always think about, and if you write a movie about what we like, you know it will be really deep.
Anyway, the movie doesn't even waste any time showing her and Reeves falling in love because you know that people fall in love like that all the time.
So, in summary, this is the best movie ever made except for some and if you are as cool and smart as the Raymond Carver Middle School Science Fiction Club, then you will want to see it over and over.

 Science Fiction Movie and TV Reviews
As Cowboy Bebop: The Movie begins, Spike (Lucas) and Jet (Billingslea) are in their usual state of poverty; as freelance bounty hunters who rarely, throughout the course of the TV series, actually got their man, they don't earn enough money to be able to afford luxuries like meat.
And in its loud scenes, when the characters are foiling a robbery, engaging in a firefight with their latest nemesis or leading a pack of enemy jets on a wild midair chase, the old Cowboy Bebop style looms to the fore, and the spinning, wild, angular animation overwhelms the screen.
And, truth be told, the movie's villain is pretty intriguing, in that familiar Cowboy Bebop way, in which attitude and panache are more important than logic and closure—which is fortunate, since the movie is a bit short on the latter.

He says the movie will more than likely get a restricted rating and he'll have to cut it down a bit depending on where it's being shown but that there will be a DVD version containing the directors cut.
This US$90 million action movie, based on the Batman comic-book character, has taken some rough criticism and hasn't fared well at the box office either (it debuted in third place with only US$16.7 million behind The Bourne Supremacy and I, Robot), but Berry is optimistic Catwoman will see the second of its nine lives.
The cliche-ridden script and flashy action sequences don't do the movie any favours, but most the criticism in the US is a result of Pitof's camera lingering on Berry's famously well-toned curves, Catwoman's over-the-top sexuality, and the much talked about costume (or lack thereof).

 The 6th Day (2000)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The film's premise is heavily based in TRUE science fiction; that is, fiction having its basis in scientific truth, using projections of the future to fully examine some aspect of our society.
Sorry to go into such an elaborate definition, but I believe a lot of stuff gets swept into the category of science fiction simply because it has a robot, or takes place in outer space.
However, if science fiction is the film's basis, lame action sequences are its filler.

 Science Fiction Movie Reviews: Johnny 2.0
Wynne McLaughlin's script lets the characters have fun with their subject matter, and it also lets the audience know what a clever writer McLaughlin is, but without being intrusive.
While there are a few too many convenient elements to be believable--and the film feels familiar with its corporations-have-taken-over theme--the script weaves science into the story nicely, making up for its weaknesses.
While it may not be a true original, Johnny 2.0 is more than just a pale imitation of another bad science fiction film because it is entertaining.
