List: Top 3 “Thinking” Sci-Fi Movies

List: Top 3 “Thinking” Sci-Fi Movies

This week on Episode 195 of the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed Denis Villeneuve’s latest film, Arrival, one of our most anticipated films of the year. Using that as inspiration, we decided to talk about our favorite “thinking” sci-fi films for this week’s Top 3. Sci-fi has been around since the beginning of the film, and while some are fun and adventurous, others are more thought-provoking and cerebral. This approach to sci-fi has not only conjured some fascinating cinema, but it’s rendered some of the best movies of all-time. There are a ton of great films that fit this criteria, and we discussed some great films that we think you’ll enjoy.

On that note, which movies would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

Brendan
