Product Description

This encyclopedia of science fiction movies is a comprehensive entry in Phil Hardy's collection (check out The Western and Horror as well). 1,500 science fiction films, from the genre's beginnings, with such classics as Fritz Lang's Metropolis to the state of the art films of the '90s. Each review also lists the movie's director, star, writer, and most important technical credits. Hardy's treatment of the genre runs the gamut from the sublime to the absurd, covering classics such as Metropolis and Things to Come, popular favorites such as Star Wars and E.T., and the silly excesses of Dr. Breedlove and The Man with Two Brains. The volume also includes a list of science fiction rental champs and important writers and critics' nominees for the best sci-fi films of all time.

The Overlook Film Encyclopedia: Science Fiction is also the first book to be fully international in scope, with films from not only the United States and Europe, but also Japan, Australia, Russia, and South Korea. Appendices include top tens, top-grossing science films and science fiction Oscar winners.
