Fantastic Voyage
D: Richard Fleischer (1966) 100m


It's hard to lose when Raquel Welch shows off dangerous curves in a tight-fitting wetsuit. Medicos get microscopically miniaturised and injected into a scientist's bloodstream. Problem is, the miniaturisation only lasts one hour. Oscar-winning sets and special effects complement tense dramatic scripting and tight direction as the team learns all about arterial traffic jams.

WarGames
D: John Badham (1983) 114m


In this Cold War tale, systems engineers at North American Aerospace Defense Command get the bright idea that nuclear missile launch control centers must be automated, operating without human intervention. A young man (Matthew Broderick) hacks his way into a back door to the military central computer... and reality gets a bit mixed up with game-playing, possibly starting World War III.

Jurassic Park
D: Steven Spielberg (1993) 127m


Adapted from a Michael Crichton novel about a theme park where the main attraction is genetically-cloned dinosaurs. A small group is allowed an advance preview, whereupon industrial sabotage leads to a catastrophic shutdown of the park's power facilities and security precautions. Typical Spielberg affair with Jeff Goldblum continuing on his profitable science fictional career path.

The Truman Show
D: Peter Weir (1998) 104m


Australian New Wave director Peter Weir was tipping us off to the heartlessness of reality TV long before it came to dominate the prime-time airwaves. Jim Carrey is outstanding as the man who unknowingly allows the rest of the world to share the mundane details of his life. When he figures things out, he tries to escape. Unfortunately, what was sci-fi in 1998 is becoming all too real.
