Science fiction is a genre of speculative fiction, typically dealing with imaginative concepts such as futuristic science and technology, space travel, time travel, faster than light travel, parallel universes, and extraterrestrial life.
Science fiction often explores the potential consequences of scientific and other innovations, and has been called a “literature of ideas”.
It avoids the supernatural, unlike the related genre of fantasy. Historically, science-fiction stories have had a grounding in actual science, but now this is only expected of hard science fiction.
Films that deal with outer space adventures and extra-terrestrial encounters. Note that “Time Travel” is presented in its own section here at DuckBird TV.
SF-0100 | Aliens
Involves aliens coming to earth either for good or bad reasons.
SF-0200 | Atomic Age
This is a sub-genre of Science Fiction. It began almost as early as Science Fiction itself. It came about because of the Atomic bombs being used in the late 40’s and 50’s. I like to use the starting year as 1954, with the release of “Godzilla, King of the Monsters”. This basically describes that the chief concept of the film is the end result of the use of atomic weapons and that atomic weapons will be the end of us.
