God’s greatest gift to humanity is its imagination. Without it, the world would be a rather dull and unappealing place. For filmmakers, imagination is key in many aspects. Envisioning scenes, chalking out story-lines, and creating memorable characters are all possible for a filmmaker to create only and only if he has an imagination that knows no bounds. Science fiction movies have seen a resurgence over the past decade, owing to filmmakers like Christopher Nolan and Ridley Scott. Here we present to you the list of top sci-fi thriller movies ever made. You can also watch some of these sci-fi thriller movies on Netflix or Hulu or Amazon Prime.
15. Triangle (2009)
It is pretty difficult to write plot summaries for films like ‘Triangle’. Vague, confusing, and at times blatantly baffling, ‘Triangle’ ticks all the boxes for a mind-twisting sci-fi thriller. A single mom Jess joins her group of friends on a sailing expedition. Midsea, the boat fails and they seek help. A large ship passes by, seemingly normal, and the group unsuspiciously comes aboard. The ship strangely seems deserted, setting off alarm bells within the group, with Jess noticing the presence of another person on it. ‘Triangle’ essentially presents a time loop. Despite the best efforts of the characters, subverted by time and compelled by love, the loop doesn’t seemingly end. A brilliantly thought out film, ‘Triangle’ reigns supreme with impeccable pacing and superlative performances.
14. Minority Report (2002)
In a utopian future, avante-garde technology has made it possible for law enforcement authorities to prognosticate crimes like a rigor and apprehend perpetrators even before the crime is committed. Using three vessels for the same, Detective Joh Anderton sees a vision of him being jailed for a crime he didn’t commit. When the actual events happen, he abducts one of the vessels and proves out to prove his innocence. Everything works in ‘Minority Reports’ favor. The plot is clever; the performances are sublime, led by a charismatic Tom Cruise, and the director is Steven Spielberg. What else do you really need?
