One of the points most commonly used is the science: from cloning to super – technological inventions, science is part of the seventh art. The following is a list of 10 (and some more) films for science lovers. Not for its cinematic style criticize or judge here their successes and scientific errors , let ‘s face it : none of that matters. The cinema and science is the best combination of all … especially for a rainy day and visiting movie25.

No. 10 Jurassic Park (1993)

In this classic science fiction , although some it may seem a movie without much sense, because it raises an important fact about cloning: problems bring to mind some extinct species . If we consider that today is talk of cloning a mammoth, Jurassic Park was not so wrong. There are stills other chapters of Jurassic Park and they are all available on Movie4k

No. 9 A Beautiful Mind (2001)

This film is based on the life of John Nash  who was one of the most important men of the contemporary economy through the development of game theory.Nash had schizophrenia , and despite his illness he managed to become a globally recognized academic prestigious . Nash died on May 23, 2015 with his wife in atraffic accident .

No. 8 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)

A classic among science fiction films and lovers of science in general, Kubrick made a film in which scientists try a lot of problems about human evolution and artificial intelligence. In the film there is a buried beneath the surface of the moon object, and with the intelligent computer HAL 9000 aboard embark on a mission to discover what it is. It takes no great analysis: Stanley Kubrick was a visionary of what would be many years later, technology and space exploration missions .

No. 7 Contact (1997)

In this film, Ellie Arroway Dr. checks extraterrestrial life existence through radio contact. The aliens send him to build a mysterious machine that will have consequences for all mankind. While it has a caliper more science fiction than science impossible – that a satellite orbiting earth man – made could be used to simulate a sign of a star- poses something today scientists ask themselves : there extraterrestrial life ? It is also based on the only novel written by  Carl Sagan .

No. 6 Wall-E (2008)

This animated film Pixar is led by two robots will be responsible for changing the history of mankind. Not only the issue of robots in question but also to live on other planets, pollution and climate change . It is one of those movies that seem to guys but actually have a great message for adults; something that Pixar always knew how to handle very well.

No. 5 The Truman Show (1998)

Today we can not live without technology, and gradually we realize that we are at the mercy of no privacy. What is different about this film starring Jim Carrey , where his whole life is a sham filmed and televised?

This film takes the form of an Orwellian dystopia type in which the main character is a victim of the evolution of an increasingly dehumanized society. If you doubt this film is itself a reference to the work 1984 , by George Orwell in which there is aBig Brother all – seeing, all – knowing. In turn, it is impossible not to relate Carrey’s character with the Wild Brave New World , the literary work of Aldous Huxley .

# 4 Back to the Future (1985)

It is a classic film of time travel in which Marty McFly back to the past to meet their parents, help them fall in love and try to go home. Is very well travel in time, though probably not accept a DeLorean as a time machine strictly scientific.

No. 3 Minority Report (2002)

Based on a short story by Phillip K. Dick, the film presents a future in which crimes are seen by psychics and held back by police before committing the act. Although it may sound good in principle, the film shows it has some bugs that are impossible to overcome. Something similar was approached by the TV seriesPerson of Interest .

# 2 The Man from Earth (2007)

This film is about a university professor John Oldman- who is interrogated after an impromptu farewell party because tests have shown that this is a Cro-Magnonbearing on earth fourteen thousand years. The film is a constant pose and intellectual discussion among scientists. Highly recommended.

No. 1 Interstellar (2014)

Perhaps the best film of this list, at least from the point of view of scientific successes. Interstellar is the first science fiction film that is acclaimed and approved unanimously by the scientific community. Touch sensitive issues such a precise and careful so that nothing escapes the script. Space-time singularities,wormholes , black holes, planetary exploration, extraterrestrial life … everything!This movie has it all! And  Matthew McConaughey , of course, that always makes everything much more attractive.

# Bonus: Gravity (2013)

With Sandra Bullock and George Clooney nothing can go wrong, right? Well, actually, this film itself took many flowers, but also a lot of criticism for his scientific errors. Personally I think it is one of the most interesting and creative films of recent times. Photography, special effects and the level of the cast were able to overcome any scientific inaccuracies, at least from my point of view.
