The Martian is directed by Ridley Scott and is about an astronaut who is stranded on Mars after a storm hits, and his crew must abandon him. I’ve been a fan of Ridley Scott ever since seeing great movies made by him including Alien (1979) and Gladiator (2000). So I was expecting some good things from this movie, and he didn’t disappoint.
Whether they deal with robots, aliens, or advanced technology, all science fiction films need to have one thing in common; they need to intrigue us and make us invested in what’s happening on screen. For this list, I choose my five personal favorite movies from the sci-fi genre.
