One of my favorite SF movies

In my opinion, it is such a brilliant movie. I have actually seen it several times when I was younger, even in the movie theater when it was released but the last time was more than a decade ago so I really wanted to check it out again. Well, I wasn't disappointed, that's for sure. I'm actually rather amazed that it doesn't get more credit than this. I seriously believe that it is practically flaw... read more

Timeless and didn't age one bit through the years. Concept was complex and compelling, yet the relationships between the characters managed to shine through. Truly one of the best movies I've ever watched.

Un film futurista bien logrado, es la demostración de como la perfección del ser humano, puede despreciar la idea original, lo que nos hace humanos, siempre he dicho que cualquier variación a la genetica humana por beneficiosa que sea es una contaminación al ser

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (789 movies items)

" A genetically inferior man assumes the identity of a superior one in order to pursue his lifelong dream of space travel. It’s different from most sci fi films, since it’s more grounded in reality, especially with genetic engineering, becoming even more of a hot button topic, now more than ever. Critically acclaimed, but however audiences were quite as interested. Gattaca garnered more interest over the years. "

“Such a powerful film & an unforgettably life-changing cinematic experience. Warns the audience about a possible future. It's also relevant in today's times when it comes to this American capitalist system overall such as its hiring practices.” read more

My Top 199 Favorite Sci-Fi Movies... Of Like, Ever (199 movies items)

" Yep, we live in a time when science fiction films are expected to be star-faring vehicles of blockbusting escapism more than cosmic catalysts for provoking thought. And the truth is, it was for the latter that the genre was invented in the first place. Gattaca is a film that goes back to the roots of what fiction written through the use of futuristic fantasy was originally dreamt for. Set in the ever popular "not too distant" future, it tells the tale of a social system founded on the belie"
