Time to resurrect this thread. For Science Fiction fans ...

Freaks is a low-budget but engaging tale of a young girl who doesn't understand the power she's capable of wielding in a hostile world. A great performance by young actor Lexy Kolker as Chloe, and Bruce Dern delivers a character that walks a fine line between creepy pedophile and concerned grandfather.

3022 is ... forgettable. More wannabe psychological thriller than science fiction, it stumbles over familiar violations of the laws of physics/gravity while telling an un-engaging story about the end of the world. An obviously miniscule SFX budget leads to a lot of recycled footage and anachronistic technology, with characters that fail to invoke any sort of emotional response. And smoking. Lots and lots of smoking.

The Platform was much better than I'd expected. An intriguing concept that delivers a compelling story about class hierarchy, it offers a terrifying experience with excellent performances by actors largely unknown in the US. This film is not for the faint of heart.

I don't know why this gets all the hate, its perfectly serviceable. Starts slow but the second half of the season is pretty good.

And the setup for the next season is good.

But if you want something 'better', Lost in space. First season is good, Second season season is great

Movie-"The Girl With All the Gifts", was a very good zombie thriller. Give it a try, if you enjoy the genre.

Dazed and confused over high tech.

Sigh...Concrap. The Internet Overlord Cometh
They're not com-tastic!

"I AM NOT OKAY WITH THIS" is a topnotch series with 20-minute episodes, each ending with a cliffhanger. I'm not saying anything about the plot because it would give away too much. Use 20 minutes of your quarantine (if you are in the US and being safe) to give it a try.
