    Not the most known ones like Terminator, Bladerunner or 2001 but more obscure titles.

    I need a good escape from reality.

    Try some of the 30s, 40s, and 50s sci-fi movies.


    Even if the plots are lame, you can get a laugh out of the costumes and special effects.

    I've been rewatching the entire "Fringe" TV show. Love Me some Anna Torv. Always worth the time.

    If you're just looking for a movie...

    Forbidden Planet is still a classic that isn't watched much anymore. Their FX for the '50's were way ahead of their time. Leslie Nelson (a young one at that) is the lead along with Walter Pidgeon and a very, very hot Anne Francis.

    If you're looking for a good science fiction western, I highly recommend the television series "Firefly", or, if you don't want to watch 16 hours of show, simply watch the movie "Serenity" which is a movie version of Firefly.

    Too bad that show got taken off of the air, because that was my "must watch" on Saturdays.
