SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY

This “out of this world” genre is the fruit of humanity’s imagination. Some have been cheesy and ridiculous, others are, frankly, mesmerizing. Still others, have been lost in the vast space of fantasy films and in our short-term memories. Here is a sample of what I mean:
