Ah, I gotta disagree. While it did make things follow it's footsteps with Space Opera-often-with-fantasy-elements, the crop of movies before it, which included a lot of too-serious affairs trying to be 2001 (poorly), and plenty with no more realism than SW too.... there aren't a lot of movies in that timeframe I'd consider good. SF movies needed some new aim, some new hook, and it got a lot of fresh blood into SF, which meant *more* SF, of all types.


Here is the SF films of the 70s. Planet of the Apes was the biggest franchise. Take a look how few there were in '76, the year before SW. There's Logan's Run and that's about it. Check '79, two years after SW. You've got Alien, Black Hole, Star Trek, Buck Rogers, and just a lot more SF movies period.

Most Ridley Scott sci fi movies do it for me. Prometheus was my favorite in the last 10 or so yrs.

You aren't exactly countering the whole watering down idea in your first paragraph, if anything it sounds like you aknowledge it happened but argue that it didn't kill the genre. That's like saying the Beatles didn't kill music, it goes without saying.

But I agree that there is some complexity in how Sci-fi movies actually built their audience and that the evolution is Worth discussing. It'd argue television was a format of more influence in the genre during the last century (maybe the tipping point was just after the 80s, it could be argued).

It wasn't terrible by any means but it doesn't even scratch the top fifteen list IMO.

That being said lets hope the remake aims the bar higher.

Bruh seriously? Star Wars. But other than SW, Star Trek into Darkness was amazing. And Men In Black
