Everyone knows that the Matrix by Andy and Larry Wachowski is a cornerstone for sci-fi movies genre. It is easy to say that this film turned that genre upside down because it is the true actually. Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss were a perfect cast for film and we loved they straight from beginning. The plot about machine-controlled humans used as merely batteries and who live in the unreal world created only in the mind was shocking and exciting so no wonder that many new sci-fi movies copy it in some way. Many people watched this masterpiece dozens of times so it is good idea to have it in your home collection of good sci-fi movies as well

As you my already notice Leonardo DiCaprio never agrees to play in bad movies so each new film starring that actor is worth some attention at least. Inception is not just good, it is the real pearl among sci-fi movies of recent years that were mostly concentrated around CGI effects and not around the plot. We should really appreciate efforts of Christopher Nolan as director of that film since he managed to make it both breathtaking and intelligent in the same time. The plot is very original and unpredictable – it is about sneaking in dreams of other people and cheating them so they reveal all their secrets. Leonardo leads the tem of illegal professionals who do it on a regular basis and once he gets a pretty unique offer to consider. Don’t even think about missing Inception if you re fan of good sci-fi movies!
