Synopses & Reviews
Many science fiction movies from the last 40 years have blazed new vistas for viewers. They've reached
further into the future, traveled longer into the past, soared deeper into the vastness of the cosmos, and probed
more intently inside man's consciousness than any other period of film before. And audiences ate them up, taking
four of the top ten spots in all-time ticket sales in America while earning more than $2 billion at the box office.
Modern Sci-Fi Films FAQ takes a look at the genre's movies from the last 40 years, where the dreams of yesterday
and today may become tomorrow's realities. This FAQ travels to a long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away... visits
a theme park where DNA-created dinosaurs roam... watches as aliens come to Earth, hunting humans for sport... and
much, much more. Filled with biographies, synopses, production stories, and images and illustrations many seldom
seen in print the book focuses on films that give audiences two hours where they can forget about their troubles,
sit back, crunch some popcorn, and visit worlds never before seen... worlds of robots, time travel, aliens, space
exploration, and other far-out ideas.
