As a guy who has read in excess of, I don't know, 4,000 maybe, Science Fiction (note spelling, I am old) novels, let me help.
Find Ian M Banks Culture Novels. Be careful about that middle initial as he wrote other forms and the MI distinguishes the SF.

I can assure you that I like BIG thinking and with the exception of very few authors, this guy writes TITANICALLY.

Our misfortune is that he passed last year.

I really liked the 'Killer Bs' Brin (Uplift Series), Bear (Eon series) and Benford (Galactic Center) will help you pass the time being enthralled. That is If you like big.

If you want small and personal 'Dying Inside', 'Flowers for Algernon', 'Alas Babylon', 'Brain Wave' and anything Sturgeon did will calm your soul-even depress it.

If it weren't for the viability of the internet, I would be (and have been) in your shoes. I was reading excessively, obsessively for years. Sometimes to the tune of (IKYN) a novel a day. I wear glasses. They help me when I play 'Mass Effect'.

Zardoz. Post apocalyptic and humans have reverted to tribal slaughtering mongel horde kind of thing. The most powerful tribe of barbarians is aided by a mystical giant head which which flies through the air and provides them with rifles with which they conquer in the name of their God, "Zardoz" . They in turn feed the huge flying head with the harvests of the fields.

Zardoz is really a huge anti-gravity machine which is controlled by the now long lived children of 20th century scientists who discovered longevity and when civilizations went in the dumpster, these scientists fled to a mountain redoubt with their high tech and now control the barbarians through superstition.

Well, one of the barbarians, Sean Connery, who no longer beieives the superstition sneaks on to the huge head as it flys off so he can see where it goes. Thats the first ten minutes.

Made back in 74 so it may seem hokey but the adventurousness of it along with some pretty conspiracy oriented, end of the world kind of stuff killed it in popular release.

I also recommend "The Thirteenth Floor" from 99. Computer scientists have developed a cyber world into which they can inject themselves for long periods of time where the live in a virtual reality of their making. Problem though, when the simulated people in the game begin behaving beyond their programming and developing consciousness and manage to make their way up into our reality. Some very existential questions evolve through out the move. This may be old had now but back then it was quite disturbing.

Then of course there is Vonneguts Slaughter House Five, in which the protaginist,Billy Pilgram, randomly timeslips through his life in sequence after sequence until he finds himself on the planet Tralfamifore, living in a huge bubble house along with his favorite porn star Montana Wildhack.

'Dreamscape' is a fun blast from the 80's.

I watched Zardoz after your suggestion. You're right, totally hokey. But there are some great concepts there. It would be cool to see a modern retelling tbh.

One more I thought of, Outland, with Sean Connery. Kind of a science fiction High Noon.

Children of Men
Space Odyssey 2001
Silent Running
Scanner Darkly
Blade Runner
