With the recent reboot of Gozilla, I got to thinking about classic (and not-so-classic) 1950s era giant monster movies such as Them!
or The Beginning of the End
, which invariably involve giant monsters that are created through nuclear experiments or explosions. [more inside]

Help me find the title of a 1970s-era movie I saw on Sci-Fi Channel in the late 90s/early 2000s. It was several short stories strung together, all very strange but not quite "horror" or "sci-fi". [more inside]

Help me understand the metaphor behind the "monster" in Danny Boyle's "Sunshine." I found this a stunning film, but the appearance of the "zombie" took my experience off-track and genre-shifted it. I understand that this was a significant element, but why? And what does it signify (for you?) I watched it years ago, and it's still bugging me!

I'm looking for a movie: Scifi, set in space/on a spaceship, probably late 70s release, that has as a plot element humans hiding from a nefarious computer or machine that would stick a needle in the back of the person's head (possibly into a port) when person was caught.

Looking for a sci-fi, fantasy, art film I saw as a child, it must have come out in the 80s, I remember watching it at an inappropriately young age and I was born in 82. [more inside]

I'm looking for screen caps of several different dystopic sci-fi movies. Any idea where I should look?
