I guess it’s really hard to find a good story on the screen in general.
A good sci-fi movie is Edge of Tomorrow. I’ve watched it several times (the second time was a must) and I think I would enjoy watching it again. It is the result of the great hard work and tremendous talent of the people involved in this production.
Although I love sci-fi, I kind of dislike fantasy and superhero (or superhero-like) stories. There are a few exceptions such as Hellboy, which had me on the edge of my seat, or Guardians of the Galaxy, which my family absolutely loved.
My family also enjoyed watching Men In Black, which I mostly found cartoonish. Another movie they’ve liked is Valerian and the City of Thousand Planets, whose visuals are fantastic but whose story has left me disillusioned.
I’ve watched Blade Runner 2049 by myself. Initially the spectators are fascinated by the mood and visuals, which promise a profound movie, but eventually people wind up disappointed by a simplistic story teeming with clichés.
I was kind of intrigued by the series Counterpart, which struck me as a well-made show, but I was dissatisfied with its unsubstantial sci-fi content.
Even though I felt Westworld was going to abound in clichés I still watched four of five episodes, where so much artistic effort was invested to exalt shallowness and futile violence.
