Immerse Yourself In Science Fiction Drama Movies

Science fiction drama movies are emotional storms which make us pause and think. They bring heavy, dark clouds of conflict, branch-splitting winds of change and blinding rain of tears.

They manage to stir up emotions even when we watch mesmerizingly long shots and action-free scenes where, you could swear, nothing really happens.

The best ones do not give comfortable answers, they just hand you an emotional package to deal with and they just leave you there overwhelmed with feelings, questions and doubts. And that is how it should be.

Not all SF dramas will have an overpowering dramatic impact, some are more on the
brighter, more hopeful side, but most of them will ask us to think and ask ourselves the questions like "What would I do in such and such situation?" and "What if my loved ones ever had to face such and such difficult situation?".

I particularly enjoy how they challenge our beliefs and moral standards, all those deep-ingrained notions painted in black and white, and especially the gray ones in between.

Sometimes, it is hard to watch them because we have to confront ourselves afterwards. We have to deal with an issue which does not just cease to matter at the end of the movie but lingers on.

What's more, they have a therapeutic effect. When I am sad and ready to cry me a river, just give me an SF drama movie, a pack of tissues and for a short – all too short - a while I will be quite the happy camper.

They will help me connect with my sadness and release it. And after I have endured
so much suffering and pain in company of some memorable characters embroiled in cleverly structured conflicts, I will come out relieved and enriched by the experience.

I love to watch them alone to enjoy their full impact and take my sweet time for reflection. And I immerse myself in the thoughts these movies stir up, as they inevitably do, and as a result I change, grow, connect and appreciate this life all the more.

I know all drama movies are supposed to do this, but I prefer the way science fiction drama movies do it.
