LIFE: Science Fiction: 100 Years of Great movies, ed. by J.I. Baker. Time Inc. Books, 2016, 96 pp., $13.99. Click here to purchase.

J.I. Baker has selected the most popular (well, at least in Baker’s mind, anyway) SF movies dating back to Georges Melies’ 1902 film, “Le Voyage dons la Lune” (Voyage to the Moon) by Jules Verne to the present-day (and soon to be a remake) of Ridley Scott’s BLADERUNNER. 

Baker speaks to a cast of characters, unusual things about Steven Spielberg’s casting to George Lucas’ impact, even before 1977’s “Star Wars.” “Star Trek” is given very limited mention. But the Life book is all about blockbuster SF in cinema, and the chronicle of these impactful films are felt continuously, even now, every day.
