Science fiction is one of those genres that consistently produce fantastic, well-written movies that fail to gain an audience. Then, after some time, they become cult classics. Of course, that's the case for many sci-fi movies, but then there are your Star Wars movies, Star Trek, Stargate... anything with "star" in the title, and much more. Some of the best films of all time are sci-fi, including E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial, The Empire Strikes Back, and Alien.
They may seem like little-effort popcorn flicks targeting easy money, and while there's undoubtedly some of that in the genre, most good science fiction films have a lot going on that fans know little to nothing about. No matter how many times you watch The Terminator, The Matrix, or the Back to the Future trilogy, you're not going to know everything there is to know about the films... unless you worked on them. Even then, there are probably a few things you didn't know about famous sci-fi flicks!
This list features some of the most interesting nuances of the very best science fiction movies ever made. Whether it's about the actors playing a hero or about the production itself, odds are, even the most ardent sci-fi movie fan won't know it all.
