The Adam Project
One of the most underappreciated genres in cinema is easily science-fiction. Cinephiles and moviegoers usually find themselves bored by the simple mention of the genre. Because they believe the plot would be too far from the truth. That could not be farther from reality. The majority of science fiction movies explore humanity. And its perils in such exquisite detail that it forces us to reflect on our own purpose in the universe. It reminds you that while the universe might be unimaginably big, your presence in it isn’t.
If you would like to experience some movies that are completely out of this world (pun intend). have a look at some of our recommendations below.

Dennis Villeneuve hit it out of the park with the critically acclaimed hit of 2016, Arrival.

Jurassic Park is a classic that we had to include in this list. The movie was released in 1993, but its visuals still hold a lot of relevance and amusement today.
