A mysterious alien from a distant solar system wants to PUMP YOU UP

The only thing that gets me to the gym is watching science fiction movies on my iPhone. Can you recommend some more based on the criteria inside? [more inside]

Name that Sci Fi Story

Name that science fiction story / movie: Two people in love with each other are trapped in a box. The box is possibly in some alternative dimension with a Panopticon-type God person. I think the story was written by a famous sci fi author. [more inside]

Looking for short film featuring mysterious black cube

I'm looking for an online video from a couple years back. It is a short scifi movie shot in the first person, which features a scientist waking up in a lab, looking out the window to see a giant tower shooting a beam into the sky, and then grabbing a black cube with lights on it, which appears to have some sort of strange powers. It was hosted on a website which had some other seemingly related material. I don't know if it was from an ARG, or a standalone video, or what, but I'd really like to watch it again.

A SciFi film with or about pipes or tubes?

Name This Film: I'm trying to remember the name of a dystopian/SciFi film I saw years back in the 90s, could have been from the 80s. The premise must have been similar to City of Ember, with a kid or teen in an underground city. I remember pipes or tubes featuring prominently, and think they were in the title too. [more inside]

What's the best, old Dragon Movie I've never seen?

I just got back from a Science Fiction (Fantasy, Horror) convention and one thing we did was "Movie Night". We got Metropolis and showed it. The movie was great. It stimulted conversation, and the members liked it. They want to do it again next year. With a different movie, of course. But next year's theme is "Here Be Dragons". So I need a great old (so I can afford to license it) Dragon Movie. [more inside]

Is my concept already old and busted?

I have an idea for a SF novel (/screenplay?), but I have the nagging feeling that it isn't at all original. Have you read or seen this concept before? [more inside]

Best soundclips from sci-fi films?

Remember my request for sci-fi music? Six months later, I'm finally ready to make my CD mix. Almost. Last night I figured out how to record mp3 audio from DVD on my Mac, and now I want to rip key dialogue snippets from classic sci-fi films. I went for Khan spitting at Kirk from his grave, but there's too much incidental music. I think maybe I can get Ripley signing off. What other short, iconic soundclips from sci-fi films should I look for? The intro to the old Battlestar Galactica? Something from Logan's Run? Blade Runner bits? Eerie, ethereal, otherworldly, outer-space stuff is best. (Bonus points if you can direct me to a source that's already done the work for me; right now I'm looking at a several-week Netflix slog.)
