I never realize how much of a Texan I am until I get to Sundance and fill the 10-degree air on my face. The good news is most of the time I’m there, I’m in a warm theater watching some great films. Unfortunately, there was an equal lack of Science Fiction films at the festival this year.
I love watching a film that has something in it that I have never seen before. Even if the idea is not executed to its full potential, I still respect it. Sometimes, the batsh*t craziness of an idea can make a bad film enjoyable. I want to share a short list of science fiction films that I like (or respect) for their unique ideas and creative new worlds.
