Sci Fi Movies Stories

From the release of the first-ever sci-fi movie, Georges Méliès’ A Trip to the Moon, science fiction on the silver screen has awed audiences with its exploration of space and potential futures. 

Other early classic movies such as Metropolis, 1954’s Godzilla, and Creature from the Black Lagoon still resonate with viewers today. They paved the way for Kubrick’s groundbreaking 1968 2001: A Space Odyssey, and even iconic entries like the original Star Wars trilogy. 

With the commercial success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the new Star Wars films, the Matrix movies, and various other revived IPs in recent years, science fiction movies have become more mainstream. Sci-fi is no longer the realm of just ‘geeks,’ and this has led to a boom in content that can be overwhelming.

The Portalist is here to separate the stellar from the sub-par. From hard sci-fi films to cult hits and dystopian movies, we suggest the best sci-fi films to stream on Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, Disney Plus, and other streaming services.
