In our digital world, life feels a little like science fiction sometimes. Maybe that’s why the sci-fi genre has exploded in Hollywood over the past few decades. With bigger budgets, more provocative storylines, and more mind-blowing special effects, sci-fi is practically mainstream. But if you’re still more of a hardcore sci-fi person, you don’t have to tolerate only campy invasion blockbusters — especially if you’re a Netflix subscriber. Netflix has a large library of sci-fi movies, both original and from other studios. But if you can’t trust the algorithm to find you the good ones, you can trust this list of the best sci-fi movies on Netflix right now.
