HLI 316: Science Fiction

A research guide to finding resources for Dr. Pennino's Science Fiction Class


  • 2001: A Space Odyssey(Kubrick)
  • Blade Runner (Scott) [director’s cut or final cut, NOT the original theatrical release – if you hear a Harrison Ford voice-over, turn it off, you have the wrong version]
  • Blade Runner 2049 (Villeneuve)
  • Metropolis (Lang) – There is a free version of the restoration from the 1980s on YouTube. They added an MTV-style music track to what was a silent film. It’s cheesy but fun.
