View Full Version : Best and worst of science fiction films on and under the sea



Doctor Know

Since so many science fiction films have been set in the briney deep as well as the vast reaches of outer space I thought I'd compile a list of favorites and non-favorites. Sadly, there have been a lot of sinkers in this particular sub-genre.

Favorites

The Abyss--Not one of Cameron's best, but certainly eye-catching and thought-provoking at times. Probably the best depiction to date of water-breathing aliens.

20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (1954) --Takes a lot of liberties with Verne's novel but the basics are there. Great special effects for the time.

The Day Of The Dolphin-- Probably more political thriller than science fiction, but the science is getting closer to non-fiction every day.

Non-Favorites

Waterworld-- Dennis Hopper's performance was the only redeeming feature of this waterbomb. Bad oceanography everywhere.

Virus-- Just plain goofy shipwreck of a movie. Can't believe Jamie Lee Curtis signed up for this cruise to box-office obscurity.

Deep Rising-- Luxury cruise ship on maiden voyage attacked by giant fanged, squid-like creatures and jewel thieves at the same time. Just hit an iceberg next time.

Abyss is gorgeous. I especially liked the fact that all the human hardware was real. It's a pity that the would not had the crew squeaking from breathing helox, but I guess some concessions have to be made for intelligibility.

The worst aquatic film of all time is:

Exactly.

The second season opener:sick:, where they introduced all the new and unoriginal characters:sick:, was the worst:sick::sick:.

Let's see, the weakest character was the lady who combined the worst aspects of TNG's female characters; she was both the hot doctor who was the Captain's unrequited love interest, and the psychic who could only sense the incredibly obvious. I swear, the first scene she was in, when someone on the viewscreen was lying so clearly that a four-year-old could see it, she actually had to say with a straight face the all-too-often-repeated line made famous by Counselor Troi: "I sense he's hiding something, Captain!"

I've seen far too many bad fish-monster movies to recall. They were everywhere in the '80s.

Worst ever underwater film? "Hello Down There", 1969, so-called "comedy", Tony Randall tries to move his family into an experimental undersea home.

The shining moment of pure badness was the musical segment of Richard Dreyfuss singing a song called "Glub, Glub, Glub".

Here's another one for the bad list. The Final Countdown. Kirk Douglas is the captain of the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. While on manuvers off Hawaii, the Nimitz is yanked through some sort of cheesey-looking wormhole...to...you guessed it. December 6th, 1941. In perfect position to intercept the Japanese carrier fleet as it prepares for it's infamous strike on the US Pacific fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor.

If a random wormhole were to pop up in the Pacific....what are the odds it would conviently send you straight back to a pivotal turning point in history? Why wouldn't it just drop you in the 12th century, or in the Gobi Desert, or another solar system? All I can figure is that apparently the Nimitz is powered by some variant of the Infinite Improbability Drive.

Hunt for Red October was really good, but it could have been so much better if they would have just not shown the Russian captain's plan until the "talk" through the Periscopes. It was like an episode of Columbo. You saw the killer do it in the open scene, after that it's just 75 minutes of Peter Falk looking for his notebook before explaining that he'd solved the case when he walked into the room the first time.

If we were going to see the plan from the start, then there should have more of the intrigue on the Red October to keep the plan secret.

How about "The Atomic Submarine". This was a pretty low budget 1950's underwater super advanced navy submarine(called the Tigershark) vs. alien flying saucer adventure. The FX was pretty horrible. I remember liking this movie as a kid; I thought that the one eyed alien cylops was pretty cool at the time. Overall, a pretty bad, but still enjoyable movie. If you like 1950's sci-fi movies, check this one out.

Favorite line from the movie:

Alien Cylops - "So, we finally meet, face to face"
Captain of the Tigershark - "You call that a face!"

That wasn't that bad. It wasn't so much about the wormhole as the age old concept of altering history. If you have the chance to stop the invasion of Pearl Harbor, do you do it? Granted, it's been a longe time since I saw it - but I remember sticking with it till the end. Of course, I'm a nerd.

I suppose you do have a point. If the Nimitz ends up in the 12th century Pacific there isn't much more than a few Polynesians to take notice. :)

Disney's 2001 animated film, Atlantis, The Lost Empire, wasn't too bad. But it wasn't one of their better efforts either. I found the concept of a bunch of misfit archeologists setting out to find Atlantis kinda fun in the beginning but it sorta went downhill from there. It did have some exceptional voice talents. Michael J. Fox, James Garner and Leonard Nimoy among others.

All in all this genre seems to be mostly dominated by bad sea monster movies.

Black Lagoon was unique for its time because the Creature was portrayed as a sympathetic character, not a blood-thirsty monster. It seems cheesy now because of its age, but it was a good movie.

The worst seasick saga for me was "Raise the Titanic!", based on the book by Clive Cussler. I can't wait to see the movie version thinking, I was young then, that they just follow the book and it would be the greatest movie ever made. The movie stank, I mean sank, faster than the original ship.

For good undersea movies, I would recommend, "Goliath Awaits". A luxury liner, torpedoed and sunk at the start of WWII, is found and somehow against impossible odds still has survivors.

For those of you who will be in therapy because of a cartoon movie, please rent "Splash" with Tom Hanks and Daryl Hannah. :)

Good find. I do remember that one. Christopher Lee rigs up some sort of oxygen-recycling apparatus as the giant ship Goliath sinks allowing some of the crew and passengers to survive trapped between some decks and watertight bulkheads, and trapped in the 1940s as well. Interesting premise at the very least. I seem to recall it was originally a TV mini-series.

I considered if Red October was science fiction and I came to the conclusion, "not really," because although they had an advanced new submarine drive it wasn't required for the plot. All that was required was for the Russian submarine to be quiet and it could have achieved this using more conventional technology similar to the U.S. Orion class submarines.

Of course this is all just a matter of opinion, but I would call it a techno-thriller, that is it borrows from or is similar to science fiction without actually being what I would personally call science fiction.

That's a good question. Does take place aboard a submarine for the most part. Plus, it's a decent movie which this genre is short of. Okay it counts. Of course that probably means I have to accept that other miniature submarine movie Inner Space with the annoying Martin Short. (However, it did have the lovely Meg Ryan though.)

For me, the low point of the Bond movies was Moonraker. You could tell they were blatantly trying to ride the coat tails of recent sci-fi hits like Star Wars and Close Encounters with the overblown space station bit.

When they first filmed the scene where the other characters pull the antibodies off of her, she ended up with what was described as "a Las Vegas showgirl" look because the actors were all too gentlemanly to grab at her breasts.

When the director pointed out the problem and they went to shoot the scene again, everybody reached for them right off the bat! So he finally had to choreograph who was going to remove which bits when. :)
