In my sick bed. Need sci-fi.

Recommended Posts

I’m gonna be in bed all weekend sick with a viral nightmare. 


Want it to watch good sci-fi tv shows or movies. 


Age doesnt matter. 


Ive probably seen 80% of everything you’re about to suggest but really need some inspiration.

Upgrade, released earlier this year, is a great B-movie.

When I’m sick all I want to watch is Next Generation.


Funny, was watching this earlier and appeared to be an episode I really don’t seem to remember (where warf breaks his back...).

I'd advise against that, and just watch this instead

The show where the writers understand space travel less than the writers in Star Trek Discovery, it's quite remarkable. I gave up ten minutes into episode 2...

It’s a doc... but Apollo 11 is astounding. No narration, just a beautifully poignant run-through of the moon landing mission. So, so good :wub:



*obviously not fiction, but think it fits the bill if you’re even remotely interested in the science. Could pair it with First Man too.

I have a real soft spot for the James Cameron written, Kathryn Bigelow directed sci-if thriller Strange Days. Its got great performances from Ralph Fiennes, Angela Bassett, Juliette Lewis, Micheal Wincott and Tom Sizemore is in it too. Bigelow takes the POV style she sprinkled into Point Break to a whole new level here, it’s unashamedly 90s, uncomfortably dark while also managing to be funny and emotional (especially if you’re not well). 


Also recommend Starcrash.
