In our final episode of the year, what better way to celebrate the Christmas spirit than by recounting our favourite Sci-Fi movies and TV shows from 2021.
S3 - Ep16: ARE DIGITAL ACTORS THE FUTURE OF FILMS?
In what really is a case of Science Fiction becoming reality, in recent times a number of Sci-Fi productions have resorted to replacing actors with digital copies. Now whether it's because the real actor has passed away or the living actor is too old for the required role, we ask the question as to whether movies will one day be made using only digital actors, and if that happens will it be a good or bad thing?
S3 - Ep15: DUNE (2021) MOVIE REVIEW
It's a film which has polarised critics and fans alike. After having its release delayed over and over again, Dune (part 1) is finally in the cinemas which means the time has come for us at Sci-Fi Zone to share our thoughts and opinions. The Spice must flow!
S3 - Ep14: THE FUTURE OF SCI-FI FANDOM
In a follow up to our 'Future of Sci-Fi conventions' discussion, we look at the frightening possibility that one day the social and interactive fandom which existed since the 1920's will be replaced by people who are sitting alone looking at a screen.
S3 - Ep13: MOVIES FROM BOOKS, THE HITS AND MISSES
Science Fiction literature has been around for over 150 years and as a result a number of these works have made their way onto the silver screen, but has their transition been a successful one? If not, why not? Furthermore, are there any Sci-Fi novels crying out for a cinematic interpretation?
S3 - Ep12: LIVING ON MARS, WHAT WOULD IT REALLY BE LIKE
Humans living on Mars is a common theme in a number of Sci-Fi movies and TV shows such as Total Recall (1990) and Babylon 5. With a big push by NASA and other space agencies to colonise Mars within the next 20 years, how would a Mars based society actually operate? Would they simply replicate 'western' ideals and methodologies as seen here on Earth or would they try to create a new martian utopia - and would it succeed?
S3 - Ep11: POST APOCALYPTIC MOVIES - COULD THEY BECOME REALITY?
It's been a classic Sci-Fi trope for decades - the world following an apocalyptic event. A number of movies are set in this period because it offers film makers a completely blank canvas to work with, but what would it really be like? Whether it be a nuclear war, zombies, alien attack, machine uprising or ... yes dare we say it ... a virus pandemic, we look at some rather depressing 'possible' futures.
S3 - Ep10: PLANET OF THE APES - A CELEBRATION
Among the many great Science Fiction movie and TV franchises is the acclaimed Planet of the Apes. From its humble beginnings as a French novel, to becoming not only one of the world's most famous anti-nuclear war films, but also an animated series, TV series and then a trilogy of new movies, we look at the wonderful legacy that is Planet of the Apes.
S3 - Ep9: THE FUTURE OF SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTIONS
A Science Fiction convention today means different things to different people. Film and TV based conventions in particular have morphed from multi-day fun fests with panels, discussions and room parties, to focusing specifically on the guests where how much you pay for their autograph/photograph determines your place in the ticket line. So have these changes been for the betterment of fans?
S3 - Ep8: WHY IS BEING A SCI-FI FAN CONSIDERED 'COOL' IN SOCIETY
It's hard to believe that at one time Sci-Fi fans were actually hesitant to share their passion and interests with the outside world. For decades Science Fiction was often perceived by society in a negative light whilst fans themselves were mocked by the media. But the tide has since turned and suddenly being a fan is considered "cool" with people now actively promoting their love for it. So what's changed and why?
S3 - Ep7: WHAT IF THE ALIENS ARRIVED!
One of the more famous Science Fiction tropes is the appearance of extra terrestrials on Earth. Now regardless of whether they want to blow us to bits or if their arrival is benevolent, in the end no one has any idea how such an event would impact our society. This then allows us to wonder which film or TV show is more likely to be correct if/when the lights finally appear in the sky.
S3 - Ep6: THE BIG THREE. LONG MAY THEY LIVE!
Whether it be the original three seasons of Star Trek, the first Star Wars movie or the 1st Doctor in Dr Who, who would have ever guessed these powerhouse franchises would still be producing brand new material in 2021! In addition, can any other Sci-Fi franchise ever reach the impressive 40-50+ year achievements these three have obtained.
S3 - Ep5: THE SCI-FI TECH WE WANT TO EXIST
The 1902 science fiction film Trip to the Moon featured a wondrously new concept which did not come into existence until 1969. As for more modern Sci-Fi movies and TV shows, what technological advancements do we yearn to see become reality - along with both the benefits and hazards of this new marvel suddenly appearing in our society.
S3 - Ep4: UNDERSTANDING TIME TRAVEL
It's been a classic science fiction trope for over a hundred years, but based on what we've seen on the movie and TV screen how would time travel actually work? In this episode we take a look at the logistics of travelling through time to see if we can figure out what would really happen if it were to become a reality.
S3 - Ep3: THE QUEST FOR IMMORTALITY
Science Fiction movies and TV shows are often set in the future, but sadly it's a future many of us will never see. But what if you could? What if you had the gift of eternal life which would enable you to experience first hand Earth of the future. At face value it sounds wonderful, but what are the real pros and cons of living forever!
S3 - Ep2: COULD A DYSTOPIAN SOCIETY BECOME A REALITY?
There are Sci-Fi movies that successfully predicted technological advances which are actually common place in our world today. So is it possible for a dystopian movie to do the same? If so, which film is likely to be the most accurate in portraying the Earth of the future and are these changes already occurring?
S3 - Ep1: SCI-FI MOVIES AND TV SHOWS FROM THE 21st CENTURY
