    Pretty much (although dytopia isn't technically "falling apart"). I guess we could classify them as disaster movies, but that doesn't really do movies like Children of Men justice to be linked with mindless blockbusters like Deep Impact or 2012.

    Honestly, science fiction is pretty broad. Anything that takes place in the future (or some dramatic re-imagining of the present) or off this planet qualifies.

    • I now have an urge to watch Children of Men, but a friend of mine borrowed it and hasn't brought it back yet. :(

      Dystopia should be its own genre.

      • I didnt love Children of Men...I did however love the scene when all the soldiers just stop dead in their tracks when they see the baby. Great scene. Not one of my favorite movies, though.

        Thanks BoneKrusher^

            If you pay attention, that movie has about three or four scenes that are one whole shot (meaning they don't cut even once) and they last about 3-5 minutes each. Children of Men had some of the best cinematography of any movie of the decade, flat out.

            • I really wasn't a fan of Children of Men, maybe I'll have to watch it again.

                I guess it's borderline, but I don't know what other genre you'd put it in.

                  No complaints with the way it was shot...truth be told, I thought a lot of was just boring. I wasn't as engaged with it as others obviously were. Although critically acclaimed, it's not for everyone.

                              PMD, I think I love you. I am a HUGE Aronofsky fanboy, as he's my favorite director, and The Fountain is a top 5 personal favorite of mine.

                                Really? I figured the spectacle of it on the big screen would be a big impetus. Honestly, I think I enjoyed the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie more for seeing it in theaters, and the impression I've gotten from what I know of Sherlock Holmes makes me think the same.

                                Let me ask you a question: Where does The Wrestler fall for you? I'm inclined to believe it's my least favorite (not that it wasn't one of the best movies of the year).
