10 Original Sci-Fi Movies To Enjoy This Weekend

This weekend, “Oblivion” starring Tom Cruise opens in theaters across the U.S. Some critics are giving the movie, which has otherwise been lukewarmly received, the benefit of the doubt for being the rare sci-fi movie that isn’t based on a book or movie.

This one might actually count as two or three movies because that’s how many time you’ll have to watch it to come even close to understand Shane Carruth’s labyrinth of a time travel plot. Plus, a viewing of “Primer” will get you in the right frame of mind to take in Carruth’s latest film, the terrific “Upstream Color.”
