Science Fiction

Step 2 - Exercises

Think about the films you watched. If you take out the science fiction elements, what type of film did you see? For example: Love story, romance, crime, action, thriller, horror, adventure, disaster, fantasy, fairy tale, mystery, documentary, biography, political, humour, parody, comedy.

Very often a film is a mixture of several of these elements. If this is the case, try to identify three of the most characteristic elements of the film.

If the story of a film, for example, centres around an adventure and a love story, what does the science fiction element add to the story? Why, do you you think, did the author or director use a science fiction context (and not, for example, a historical background)?
