Science Fiction was very popular in the 70’s and throughout the 80’s, but the popularity of the science fiction genre died out in the 90’s. It seems that the popularity of sci fi has risen again this year.
The “Star Trek” reboot, “District 9”, “Avatar”, and next here comes, “Battle Los Angeles”. We have “Cowboys & Aliens” coming soon as well. So there’s your evidence that sci fi have came back in a huge way.
I’m a huge science fiction fan and this genre deserves to get known again. I haven’t seen “Battle Los Angeles” yet but will see it later this week. Now that sci fi is getting huge, maybe this will get people to start watching the classic sci fi movies like: “Metropolis”, “Blade Runner”, “Enemy Mine”, “The Black Hole”, “Dune”, “Explorers”, “The Last Starfighter”, etc. I’m pretty sure some people of today don’t even know about those movies.
