Jun 10, 2013

From the final frontier to a far off future, science fiction flicks are some of the most creative stories being made, and can show us the very best and worst of human potential, all against the backdrop of the cosmos or action and explosions - check out the Top 10 Sci-Fi Movies.

No.10: The Terminator

Arnold Schwarzenegger's famous tagline "I'll be back" is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what's great about the Terminator films.

After Earth combines the star power of Will and Jaden Smith with a sci-fi story about searching for  a new homeland once our earth is destroyed.

No.8:  Blade Runner

One of the all-time sci-fi classics, this book-turned-movie directed by Ridley Scott envisions a world where some humans are not what they appear.

No.7: E.T.

Once you've seen this adorable alien classic the words "phone home" will never sound the same. Directed by Steven Spielberg, this flick definitely stands the test of time.

What would happen if your dreams were real, or you could control what happened in them? Inception is the ultimate mind-bender when it comes to the realm of sleep and possibility.

No.3: The Hunger Games

One of the best recent teen science fiction book series, The Hunger Games was just as impressible as a movie, both tugging at your heartstrings and wondering what will happen next for our protagonists.

Honestly I commented on this post a while back saying I liked ATLA but I feel like The Legend of Korra had more depth to it and was definitely meant for older teens, which is why I feel like a lot of you like it better. But the finale put me at a tie. I love both the shows equally.

Usually I see them wear our school uniform. But whenever they get a chance to wear any colored dress to school, they wear jeggings and sleeve-less/half-sleeved tops. And their HAIR, OMG! They do SO MANY STUPID STYLES, even when they wear their school uniform, their hair is just in SO MANY STYLES!!
