    10 Most Complex Sci-fi Movies of All Time (Taste of Cinema)

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. By its very nature, the sci-fi genre is relatively complex: the short stories, novels, TV series and films that comprise speculative fiction necessitate detailed expository passages to build its far-flung futures, reality-bending premises, and stories set in a galaxy far, far away. Whether the story is set on an alien world populated by creatures markedly different from human beings, in a future separated by centuries or eons from the present in which society, technology, science, and civilization itself have evolved into a nearly unrecognizable state, or center around time or space travel, sci-fi stories require complex set-ups to create a believable reality that’s very different from our own. Because of this, the sci-fi genre also allows for its stories to become quite complex. Time travel stories thrive on complexity while, depending on the story, other elements may be willfully obtuse to create an air of mystery or disorientation in the viewer–and some sci-fi stories are much more complex than others. Here are 10 sci-fi films that are purposely complex, either in order to replicate the extraordinary events occurring in the story, to mirror the effect an advanced technology that’s in use as part of the plot, or simply to keep the viewer in the dark about unknowable creatures and the nearly inexplicable that happens during the film.

    AMP's Queering the Indian Cinescape: 7 Movies

    Favs/dislikes: 0:0. June 24, 2020 By Puja Basu The repealing of Section 377 of the Indian Penal Code was definitely a moment of monumental significance in contemporary Indian history. Even though the provision was a legislative relic of the British colonial government, the government of the United Kingdom had revoked this provision in their own country, much before India did the same. The struggle for equal rights and opportunities for people belonging to the LGBTQ+ spectrum in India is far from over; however, the past decade has seen some interesting trends in terms of representation of queer characters in Indian cinema. For a society that [url=]still refuses to condone sex education[/url] because the subject continues to be taboo, the cinematic medium becomes an interesting means of initiating conversations on the matter, given its reach and capacity for mass engagement. It’s been over two decades since the release of Deepa Mehta’s “[url=]Fire[/url]”, which had created a furor owing to its portrayal of a same-sex relationship, that two between two sisters-in-law! While public response to such content has changed over the years, so have the kinds of stories filmmakers have been trying to tell. While most works tend to make the character’s sexuality or their instance of ‘coming out’ the focus of their trajectory, some have even managed to go beyond this narrative trope. Here’s taking a look at some of the most interesting Indian cinematic approaches in the last decade, to representing and narrativizing queer stories snd characters.
