Out of the last decade or so, what would you say has been your favorite movie released, and then what was your favorite scifi movie? Bonus points for books too :0c
My favorite book of the last decade was, without a doubt, Ancillary Justice. (I feel like I’ve become terribly repetitive when it comes to books - I can converse pretty well about current SF/F, but it always comes back to Ancillary Justice.)
Oooh boy, movies are tougher. Star Wars will always own my heart, so The Force Awakens is exempt from the competition by virtue of its close personal relationship with the judge. That leaves Fury Road, which won me over with its sandy, rapid-fire, but crystal clear action scenes. For non-franchise movies I really liked Pacific Rim and The Host (Bong Joon-ho).
I feel like I’m forgetting something less bombastic, although my taste does run toward monsters…
Oh! Midnight Special, a beautiful piece of weird Americana with Adam Driver.
