From some weird fiction to sensational realities, these are but a few films that get us excited about science!
Seth Brundle develops a system to transport objects in a matter of seconds, but when he tries it on himself, Seth’s genes and molecules are accidently fused with those of a fly. At first Seth is elated by his new physical abilities but soon his excitement turns into a nightmare as his insect half begins to take over.
In Gattaca, only the strong succeed and the strong are genetically pre-selected at birth. When one man dares to defy the system, he gets caught in a web of lies, corruption, and murder.
Critically acclaimed filmmaker John Hughes is at it again, giving nerdy computer whiz Ilan Mitchell-Smith and his best friend power to create the “perfect woman”. Like a computer-generated fairy godmother, the duo’s out-of-this-world creation guides the pair through the pleasures and pitfalls of adolescence.
