The past ten years I’ve noticed something that I’ve taken the liberty to christian “science fiction goo”. Science fiction goo makes cameo appearances in block buster movies of science fiction or fantasy nature.
The science fiction goo is typically translucid and reminiscent of thick snot, but at the same time sort of alien. It can be both quite liquid and semi-firm.
Examples of movie scenes featuring science fiction goo:
- Independance Day (1996):
Scientists open up an alien head to study its insides.
2. Lord of the rings: Fellowship of the ring (2001):
Birth of Uruk Hai.
3. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (2001):
Harry pulls out wand from troll’s nostril.
There are many more examples of this but these are ones I can come up with from recent memory. Whenever I see the goo on screen, it’s like hearing the Wilhelm scream. It simply stands out.
