Science-fiction movies are often visually dazzling and intellectually riveting…when they first arrive in theaters, that is. Oftentimes, the problem with the genre is that the cool special effects and futuristic plotlines that seem cutting-edge and state-of-the-art today can look dated and even silly a few years later. That’s why a sci-fi flick that stands the test of time is truly a wonder to behold. Consider “Aliens” and “Bladerunner”–movies that are as thrilling now as they were then.
