Best Sci Fi Movies on Netflix Right Now

Star Wars: The Last Jedi


Rian Johnson’s installment in the Star Wars saga follows many of the same patterns as the original trilogy, especially The Empire Strikes Back, while simultaneously subverting expectations and changing the rules. It’s as though someone finally noticed that Star Wars is as old now as the Flash Gordon serials that inspired Star Wars were when George Lucas’s original film came along, and decided to push the whole genre forward the same way Lucas did. The film is messy and controversial but dynamic and impressive, and its impact will be felt for many years – and many Star Wars films – to come.

Thor: Ragnarok


Taika Waititi’s oddball Marvel Cinematic Universe movie sends Thor to an alien planet, where he becomes a gladiator who fights the Hulk, teams up with a drunken Valkyrie (Tessa Thompson) to start a revolution, and – GASP! – gets a haircut. Meanwhile, Hela (Cate Blanchett) has taken over Asgard, and the end of Thor’s world feels imminent. It’s an eccentric juxtaposition of the silly and the serious, the superficial and the complex, with meaningful issues like colonialism conveyed through crazy action sequences and witty banter.
