Donnie Darko is a crazy, twisted, sci-fi film about time travel and destiny.  It was released in 2001 and directed by Richard Kelly.  The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Drew Barrymore, Patrick Swayze, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Jena Malone and Noah Wyle.

I won’t even get into the story because it’s a wild, twisty turny tale that takes a couple watches to really get it.  But you should all go watch it now, a couple times.  It’s one of my favorite films.

Don’t Forget a Towel.

The Hitchhiker’s Guide to The Galaxy is one of those great book series’ that gave us so much over the years, including the meaning of life… 42.

The film, while not really reaching the depths of awesome that the book series does, is still good. It gets a lot of mixed reviews, but I really enjoy it. I think it’s a pretty decent adaptation, even if it does just mush all the books together.

It tells the story of Arthur Dent who gets saved from the destruction of Earth by an alien friend. They travel the galaxy trying to find the answer to the Question of Life, the Universe and Everything. It’s a fun ride full of weird aliens and a paranoid android.

The film was released in 2005 and stars Martin Freeman, Mos Def, Zooey Deschanel, Sam Rockwell, Bill Nighy, John Malkovich, Stephen Fry, Helen Mirren and Alan Rickman.

So long and thanks for all the fish.

Attack the Block is a fun Brittish sci-fi flick released in 2011 and starring Jodie Whittaker, John Boyega, Nick Frost, Luke Treadaway, and Alex Esmail among others.

It involves a group of London kids who grow up in the wrong neighborhood fighting an invasion of gorilla-like aliens who have blue glowing teeth.  All while trying to avoid another gang leader and get weed.

The story is great and about not judging someone by the hood they come from.  It’s a fun and funny British sci-fi flick that I would recommend.  Coming from America though, the British street slang sounds kind of strange and is a bit hard to get used to, so beware of that.

Considered one of the greatest film adaptations of Orwell’s 1984, even though it’s not specifically an adaptation of that novel.  The film was directed by Terry Gilliam and was ironically released in 1985.  The film stars Jonathan Pryce, Robert De Niro, Kim Greist, Michael Palin and Ian Holm.
The film is about a dystopian future that is run by a totalitarian government.  One low level government employee has a load of daydreams and becomes an unwitting player in a revolution.  It is quite funny and has a great twist ending.  It’s a pretty good movie and a very classic Gilliam film.  I would say go see it.

Here’s the 12th Doctor’s costume everyone.  It’s looking pretty good, definitely get a 3rd Doctor vibe from it.  I feel like he’s missing something…

I’m still looking forward to Capaldi’s run, even though he got off to a bad start in my opinion.  Look at my Christmas Special post if you’re curious about how.

Christopher Nolan’s 2010 sci-fi, heist, head trip film Inception was supposed to be a game changing visual spectacle.  I could never deny that some of the scenes in this film were absurdly amazing.  However, the film wasn’t as intriguing or visually stunning as I was planning.  I must say I was a bit disappointed.  I was hoping for a deeper story and way more of a head trip.  It attempted all that, but got muddled down and didn’t leave me feeling with a new way of looking at reality.  It was an okay film though and had a great cast.

It stars Leonard DiCaprio, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe, Tom Hardy, Ellen Page, Cillian Murphy, and Michael Caine
