Review Summary
White Gattaca has some flaws, it manages to take a powerful concept and create a compelling story. What really stands out are the themes, production design, cinematography and feel of the movie. Altogether, Gattaca is one of the best Sci-fi movies of the last 25 years and it's subject matter seems more timely as the years go by.

Review Summary
The consensus among all three hosts is that Ex Machina is more-or-less a modern sci-fi classic. It is spare in it's story but big in the examination of potent themes and ideas. Given it's low budget, the special effects are utilized well and the acting is really top-notch with three actors at the top of their game. Ex Machina easily stands as one of the best intelligent sci-fi movies of the last decade.

Review Summary
Life is generally well-directed and the alien creature looks good, but the script has a host of issues that drag it down. Couple that with thin characters and little development and these elements harm what could have been a good movie. It's worth watching as a solid thriller, but it also comes off as a bit run-of-the-mill.

Review Summary
Dark City never managed to get the attention it so clearly deserved back in 1998. It had a creative and strong premise with a solid script, good performances and some nice special effects for it's time. Alex Proyas followed up The Crow with what may actually be his best movie. Roger Ebert ranks this among his all-time favorite movies and for a good reason.

Review Summary
Glitch has a solid premise, an interesting locale (Australia) and some decent acting, but the show really falls apart with a ludicrous turn personality-wise by a character relatively early on and a groan-worthy love triangle that doesn't work nearly as much as it thinks it does. Not enough focus on the central characters results in a wobbly, unfocused season that fails to inspire much confidence going into season 2.

Review Summary
Arrival is an exceptional film. A smart, non-linear script with some strong characters. Amy Adams does some of her strongest work to date as the lead character. Denis Villeneuve continues his hot streak of directing great films as well. Smart Sci-fi is somewhat rare, so anytime a film that manages to marry a cerebral, thoughtful script with great acting and directing, it is something to cherish. Arrival should be cherished.
