Sadly Sci-fi has been a bit wanting in recent years. I think The Expanse and Altered Carbon are among the best recent releases. A lot of stuff I've
seen has a great premise underneath it all but poor writing, acting , and budget mismanagement seem to hobble a great deal of production. Sometimes I
have to wonder if crappy sci-fi and horror movies are just a money laundering operation where money just falls into a black hole of accounting.
I guess the simple explanation for sci-fi at least is that it's hard to write a believable plot and it takes effort to research scientific principles
and stretch them in a believable manner. I constantly look through prime and Netflix sci-fi choices to just be disappointed. Although it was cool to
see a production of Ender's Game, granted like most books turned movie it glossed over a lot of points. I still hope they'll carry out the series.
Oh and if you haven't seen Altered Carbon or The Expanse you should check it out.
