Other sci fi movies released in 2015 (for rental and streaming streaming, at home on the couch, almost anything will do, and some are “must-sees” for at home streaming, but would be unrewarding watching on the big screen):
The Scorch Trials
Z for Zachariah
Hot Tub Time Machine 2
The worst sci-fi / superhero movie of 2015:
The Fantastic Four (Rotten Tomatoes gave it a whopping 4% rotten rating; even ‘Hot Tub Time Machine 2’ received a better rating. Josh Trank may be out of a job due to this fiasco. ‘Fantastic Four’ started out as a poor movie, not true to the comic books or the characters and was made worse by the movie company, 20th century fox, in an attempt to make it better. fail all the way around. do not rent or netflix, trust me, you would be better off, as a person, to watch ‘Spider-man, The Musical’).
Jupiter Ascending (actually, the latest film (and maybe the last film, because this one was so bad) theatrical release from the Wachowskis, would have been ok if they would have edited out most of the slow parts, keeping all the action, and editing it down to 1 1/2 hours, but as is, it’s way too long and boring, and really you end up not caring at all for the characters, especially after too many reverse plot twists).
Pixels (I remember a time, in the not too distant past, when Adam Sandler movies were actually enjoyable, fun and even funny. Peter Dinklage, whatcha doin’ in this movie?).
