Really good look at two up and coming sci-fi movies!
But twice this summer, using a fraction of Abrams’ budget, a film has popped up to give fans of smart sci-fi their fix. Though Duncan Jones’ gloomy, atmospheric Moon and Neill Blomkamp’s adrenaline-pumped District 9 could not be more different films, they both seem to herald a new age for sci-fi, in which cheaply available special effects and a handful of brave distributors mean that science fiction is no longer just the realm of safe Hollywood efforts. You can watch Transformers all you like, but now you have the option of something that looks as good, and has a brain to go with it.
