Best and Worst Sci-Fi Movies of the Year

Science Fiction has seen better days. There are a few good sci-fi films that come out every year but there is not a huge run on the genre. Perhaps the continuing Dune franchise can help, but it feels as if the sci-fi film is too easily poorly constructed.

So it is a little challenging to choose the best sci-fi movie of the year. I do remove super hero movies from the mix. That leaves a lesser amount.

I’ll start with the worst.

Worst Sci-Fi Movie of the Year

Runners-Up: Crimes of the Future, Don’t Worry Darling, The School for Good & Evil, Jurassic World: Dominion, Firestarter, Moonfall

Worst: RIPD 2: Rise of the Damned

Who wanted a sequel of this movie? It is not as if RIPD was a huge hit. It was a minor film that was bad and went away. RIPD 2 is just a cheap knockoff without any of the stars of the original.

Previous Winners:  Upgrade, Blade Runner 2049, Arrival, The Martian, Ex Machina, Star Trek Into Darkness, Edge of Tomorrow, Freaks, The Invisible Man, Dune

Runners-Up: Day Shift, Lightyear, The Adam Project

Best (TIE): Everything Everywhere All At Once

AND…

Best (TIE): Avatar: The Way of Water

Two opposite types of films this year. The small, low budget movie that could and the giant, high budget blockbuster. Yet both came up with wonderful movies. Everything Everywhere All at Once had a tighter story and plot, but the new Avatar had the most spectacular special effects, surely revolutionizing the industry.
