The 2010s have had a wide variety of really good science fiction movies

Ex Machina, Looper, Arrival, Edge of Tomorrow,  Source Code, Melancholia, Attack the Block, Upstream Color, Her, Interstellar, Snowpiercer, Inception, Gravity, Prometheus, 10 Cloverfield Lane, Super 8, Limitless, Under the Skin, Predestination, Dredd, Safety Not Guaranteed, Pacific Rim, The Martian, Midnight Special, Arrival

That's 24 good to great Science Fiction films in the last 6 years. I think we can safely assert that we're living in a sort of golden-age for sci-fi. 

1) The next time I bitch about how the only movies coming out anymore are sequels, remakes and Marvel garbage please LINK TO THIS POST! 

2) From a "WORLD OF REEL" commenter "This is why I call B.S. when people trash "Avatar" and say it didn't have any cultural impact. It reignited the craving for science fiction at the movies. Look at the years preceding Avatar; there was almost no studio backed sci fi coming out. Then Avatar comes out, makes the most money, gets some Oscar noms, and introduces alot of new technology, and it made studios realize they could make money hopping on board the band wagon and visionary directors figured out they could suddenly realize visions they didn't think were possible."
