With insight from critics, film historians, and academics, 101 Sci-Fi Movies You Must See Before You Die . offers knowledge, insight, and passion to a century of close encounters, distant planets, time travel, black holes, impossible quests, strange outfits, futuristic technology, inexplicable forces, fantastic spaceships, extraordinary monsters, fluorescent drinks, and subterranean societies.
