From 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' (1951) to 'Independence Day' (1996), science fiction filmmakers have used national monuments as iconic metonyms for American national identity, history, and ideals. As scenes of action, destruction, or ruin, such sites as the Washington Monument or the Statue of Liberty play a key role in conflicts between humans and the alien Other. [M. Schumacher]

The film 'Escape from New York' shows a city that has turned into awasteland while the movie 'Blade Runner' portrays the city of Los Angeles,CA, to be a dying and diseased city. Both ways, the future is depicted asdark and decaying. Other films have followed which do not match the qualityof the two movies but the trend is expected to continue toward a similarfuture."

Thefear is, though, perhaps more the product of naggingdoubts concerning man and his capacities, rather than oftechnology itself." [America History and Life]

"Science fiction films show New York City through the eyes of a foreigner, an "alien," be it an extraterrestrial, an earthly monster, or a super-hero. The alien's presence in the city underscores the shortcomings of civilization - New York is ridden by violence, crime, and corruption - while reinforcing the mythical appeal of the world's most recognizable city. The various images of New York on the screen actually give us a glimpse of the "real" city, as the cinema blends all visions into a unique, multisided, mythical entity, a city that draws its reality from the fiction that invents it."

"Part of a special issue on film and technology. The writer discusses the representation of procreation and creation in three science-fiction films from the 1990s: Gattaca, Species, and Mimic. She suggests that these films are cautionary tales about science and raise issues of scientific ethics, discrimination, and the representation of the Other. She argues that they comment on our culture's anxieties about genetic engineering and reproductive technology in much the same way as films of the 1950s gave expression to anxieties about the atomic bomb and nuclear technology. She also points out, however, that cinematic treatment of technology underwent a significant shift between these two eras. She contends that whereas many science-fiction films of the 1950s present technology as a means of protecting and defending human beings, later films envisage technology as the cause, not the cure, of the hero's situation."

"From at least 1925 to the present, science and technology have been depicted largely negatively in popular films of all genres. The images of science and technology in films reflect consistent public anxiety over the linkage between science, technology, and corporate power; the complacency of government agencies and scientists toward new knowledge and artifacts; the insensitivity of scientists toward the moral implications of their research and its applications; and the co-option of technical knowledge by vested corporate and government interests. Public conservatism is reflected in the suspicion toward new knowledge and new artifacts and in questioning whether science and technology truly improve the human condition." [JSTOR]

"Most American science fiction and fantasy films focus on the significance of old-time family values and attachment to one's home. In movies such as 'The Wizard of Oz,' 'It's a Wonderful Life,' the 'Star Wars' trilogy and the 'Back to the Future' trilogy, the protagonists are depicted as individuals desiring to run away from home, only to realize in the end that doing so is an impossible feat. The films also present youthful compulsions, family cohesiveness and moral debasement. However, the essence of home and family remains to be the central idea of the films." [Magazine Index]

The vampiric body and the replicant body are read as instances of a one-sex body, following Thomas Laqueur's study of pre-18th-century Western anatomical models. The article argues that the metaphor of the one-sex body resurfaces in these three works, all of which attempt to ground their treatments of sex/gender in the two-sex model, due to their cultural production at historical moments in which traditional gender alignments were in flux."

"American science fiction movies in the talkie era generally contain the most achieved and suggestive urban fantasies. All representations of the American city in such movies mostly depend on two components: myth and history. Symbolized as the achievement of a noble humanity, the city is often presented as suffering from the harsh assaults of a hostile and alien identity: monsters or extraterrestrial beings. A second representation, depicting the cities under nightmarish features, came later and is related to the recent evolution of American cities. In such movies as Blade Runner, Invasion Los Angeles, Terminator, and Robocop, the enemy is no more an extraneous entity, but spreads out from the corrupted heart of the decaying city. One can see in this interiorization of the evil forces threatening the city dwellers the long way covered since the confident days of the consumer society to the present-day fears of American life."

"The writer explores the melodramatic encounters staged in the disaster/apocalyptic films of the 1990s, in order to complicate how race and gender differences are negotiated in these crises. She states that thinking about the disaster genre in terms of melodrama permits us to resolve the critical dilemma of how to read spectacular genres politically. She proposes that, despite the apparent racial/gender integration of the hero team in these films, they are nowhere near a post-Rodney King landscape, but instead try to resignify the "American" landscape and "American" values from within an intense awareness of the literal and metaphorical "disaster" of racial and gender misunderstanding. She asserts that, by staging an insistent replay of exactly the events of the Rodney King landscape, these films mark the rupture of meaning and national understanding, use the disaster as an organizational force, and propose a fantasy/utopian alternative to complex political conditions."

"Examines science fiction films of the 1950's (made during the Cold War) and their remakes in the 1970's and 1980's (made in the post-1960's, after Vietnam and Watergate) in conjunction with stories told by social scientists during the same eras. The authors provide a subversive reading of social scientific datasets and science fiction films and pay special attention to both versions of The Thing (1951, 1982) as relevant examples of Cold War and post-1960's statements. Social scientific and film productions of the 1950's correlate with optimistic public sentiments of the Cold War era in regard to the abilities of the military, government, and medicine to solve social problems. The more recent reproductions conjure images of a much more pessimistic view of institutions. Readings of social scientific products, science fiction films, and their remakes can inform social theories in general and postmodern social theories in particular." [America: History and Life]

The article examines science fiction films including "Starman," "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" and "The Man Who Fell to Earth." The motion picture "The Man Who Fell to Earth" functions as a parable, which aims to question the convictions of the industrial culture. On the other hand, "E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial" is a myth about the friendship of an alien and a human being.

Author Abstract: In contrast to SF literature, most SF films have responded negatively to technology, seeing it as a force in contemporary society that has had a deleterious effect on the quality of human life. Herbert Marcuse and Jacques Ellul two of the most pessimistic analysts, have expressed their criticisms of technology in ways that also find expression in some of these films, which are preoccupied with many of the same issues. Three in particular--Forbidden Planet (1956), Colossus: The Forbin Project (1969), and Alien (1979)-can be seen as responses to the theorists in question. In each case the films adopt positions that, while sympathetic with many aspects of Marcuse's indictment of technology, challenge his belief that this technology could ever be a vehicle for human liberation. In contrast, they assume positions closer to that of Ellul, who sees technology's effect on the quality of human life as thoroughly debilitating. COPYRIGHT SF-TH Inc. 1992.

"Changes in Japanese science fiction films and comics (manga) reflect Japan's changing post-war image of itself. Although scientific and technological progress have been key to Japan's economic success, most Japanese science fiction suggests ambivalence and fear of disaster. These films have progressed from 'secure' disaster scenarios of the 'Godzilla' series to nostalgic views of unavoidable disaster, as in the film 'Nippon chinbotsu,' and finally to nihilistic visions of a grim future in the 1989 film 'Akira.'"

The authors argue that an interrogation of cinema can reveal the fragility of our knowledge and the underlying imperatives that the social construction of space responds to. A revisionist overview of the issue of professional interfaces in the popular arts is followed by a discussion of the influence of space technology and natural space phenomena on human personal and collective belief systems in order to open the way for an outline of the concept of participatory cultures and the relationship between fiction and science.

The more immediate issue about digital effects in motion pictures pertains to the aesthetic. Any imaginable image can be created digitally and appear more or less real, but looking effective or possessing a real imaginative tangibility is another story. 'Star Wars' and The Matrix' reflect this idea.

The 1984 documentary The World of Tomorrow's portrayal of the New York World's Fair of 1939 reveals the tendency of science fiction films to indulge in technological fantasy while probing the impact of technology on mankind. It reflects the preference for illusion rather than reality, and for the future rather than the present. It also exposes the human tendency to dwell more on future prospect than on their duties pertaining to the present.

"Part of a special issue on fantastic films. The writer discusses Hollywood's use of standard orchestral instruments to signify immigrant, or Native American, Others in the silent and sound periods. He explains how the theremin, an electronic instrument originally intended by its Russian inventor for the classical concert stage, became the sonic signature sine qua non of alien Others during the postatomic Golden Age of science fiction movies. He maintains that the theremin's power resided in its sheer novelty at the time, in its compelling musical expressiveness, and in its unique ability to imply that its "unearthly" sound was somehow emanating from whatever alien was at hand."

"The Stories Told in Science Fiction and Social Science: Reading The Thing and Other Remakes From Two Eras."Sociological Quarterly, 34:4 Nov 1993, pp: 619+
"Examines science fiction films of the 1950's (made during the Cold War) and their remakes in the 1970's and 1980's (made in the post-1960's, after Vietnam and Watergate) in conjunction with stories told by social scientists during the same eras. The authors provide a subversive reading of social scientific datasets and science fiction films and pay special attention to both versions of The Thing (1951, 1982) as relevant examples of Cold War and post-1960's statements. Social scientific and film productions of the 1950's correlate with optimistic public sentiments of the Cold War era in regard to the abilities of the military, government, and medicine to solve social problems. The more recent reproductions conjure images of a much more pessimistic view of institutions. Readings of social scientific products, science fiction films, and their remakes can inform social theories in general and postmodern social theories in particular." [America: History and Life]

" Hollywood was to successfully release a series of horror science fiction films depicting mutant insects in the 1950s. The postwar genre of horror films might be called 'Insect Noir' or 'Cinema Arthropoda' because bugs were to enjoy a golden age in cinema helped along by special effects considered sophisticated during that time. Such films were produced as a result of the prevailing paranoia in the US society during that period. The Japanese were to produce their own insect films in the 1960s."

"Universal truths: cultural myths and generic adaptation in 1950s science fiction films." Journal of Popular Film and Television v18, n3 (Fall, 1990):103 (9 pages).
During the 1950's, the Hollywood science fiction film helped resolve the contradiction in American society between the desirability of change and the retention of existing values and beliefs.

Shapiro traces the evolution of Atomic Bomb Cinema in U.S. and Japanese films from the 1950s and '60s. Utilizing the theories of Erik Erikson, John Collins, and Eric Cassell, this essay interprets Atomic Bomb Cinema through the lenses of crisis, apocalypse, and suffering. After contextualizing the films in relation to The Time Machine, the essay analyzes four films, On the Beach, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Mosura tai Gojira, and Ikimono no Kiroku.

"Monstrous Bodies, Monstrous Sex: Queering Alien Resurrection." Journal: Gothic Studies Volume 7 Issue 2, November 2005, pp 158-171
"The critical response to Alien Resurrection marked a departure from negative responses to Alien3. Oblivious to the film's parting from the trilogy's characterization as `simultaneously feminist and gynophobic', some critics remained steadfast to that trope, insisting `Ripley is still the same person.' Critics of the trilogy determined its sub-text to be concerned with gender and reproduction and went on to assert the same of Alien Resurrection. Where the trilogy offered a vision of Ripley through a heterocentric lens, with blurred but visible divisions between monstrous and human, (and what distinguished them had to do with means of reproduction), Alien Resurrection eradicates boundaries so it becomes impossible to determine whether `normal', human or monster, can even exist in this world. The issue of sexuality becomes paramount to the issue of reproduction and gender. In the course of the trilogy, gender is made obsolete; Alien Resurrection finishes the job in rendering terms of sexual normalcy immaterial. The alien queen who has mutated into a parthenogenetically reproducing creature is described as `perfect'; what kind of meaning can that sort of reproduction or creature have in a heterocentric world? This world and its inhabitants are beyond heterosexuality, and perhaps beyond sexuality as we know it. Consequently, reconsidering Alien Resurrection through a queer lens which inquires into sexuality offers a fuller and more fruitful reading than does one through gender or the biological labyrinth of reproduction."

"Each of the Alien films has begun with an image of rebirth, and in Jean-Pierre Jeunet's Alien Resurrection, the fourth film in the series, the renaissance is literal. The character of Ripley, who died in the third film, has been cloned in the future from a portion of her DNA so that the alien queen can be extracted from her body. In Ripley's reawakening, we not only see a transformation of the Christian resurrection but also a structural transposition of elements from contemporary narratives of alien abduction." [Art Index]

This paper examines the critical reception of Jean-Pierre Jeunet' s Alien Resurrection in the popular Anglo-American press, where the film was often discussed in terms that highlighted the director's status as an 'outsider'. The anxiety that the film elicits among critics, it is argued, is a function of the very abjection that is depicted graphically within the film: a fear of the unclass~able and of the crossing of boundaries.

"The conception of the body as a collection of rebellious parts is a popular one in a certain set of horror films of the 1950s and early 1960s. These films reflect the popular understanding of genetics, DNA, and heredity, a discourse that greatly influenced the conception of the body. Changes in genetic science, fostered by the political and social climate of the 1950s, enact a shift in the discourse of embodiment and imbue the body with a somatic unconscious. Repressed within this unconscious is everything that is deemed "unhealthy" and "abnormal," categories that are linked to race and racial differnce due to the interplay between genetic science and eugenic philosophy. These films then enact a nightmare of eugenic fears, fears that demand extensive measures of control, although these measures ultimately prove futile. These body-rebellion films return the body to a "purified" state through the xenophobic excision of the offensive, dangerous element thorugh a kind of violent therapy."

"A discussion of the conceptions of the future in three science-fiction films--James Cameron's 1991 film Terminator 2, the Wachowski Brothers' 1999 film The Matrix, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 1997 film Alien Resurrection. While these films all try to conceive of the future by incorporating unusually explicit infanticidal imagery in story lines that revolve around threats of apocalypse, they also attempt to figure the future otherwise, to contraceive of what might come to pass. Before examining the three films individually, the writer considers three concepts--conception as literalized metaphor, evolutionary extinction, and interpellation and the formation of the human subject in relation to Judith Butler's discussion of sexual difference--as an interpretive frame for evaluating the ideological violence at work in the first two films' vision of the future and the amazing demystification of that violence in Alien Resurrection."

"Jean-Pierre Jeunet's film, Alien Resurrection, is interpreted as addressing various issues relevant to disability politics. After providing an overview of the film's plot, the reactions of feminists & the US moral majority to the film are discussed. Despite continued scientific support for the Human Genome Project, it is contended that such a project threatens the elimination of disabled people, cultures, & histories. The use of prenatal testing to support the euthanasia of fetuses with physical problems is compared to the female protagonist's destruction of monstrous human-alien offspring. It is asserted that the connection between corporeality & identity has become increasingly problematic in contemporary society. Other films that address disability in worlds dominated by genetic engineering or that cast disabled characters are noted to illustrate the rise of popular representations of disability. The disability movement in Australia is briefly addressed." [Sociological Abstracts]

" Analyzes the immensely popular science fiction film series sometimes referred to as the Alien Trilogy (1979, 1986, 1992) for its mythopoetic critique of gender identity. The basis for this critique resides in the movies' embodiment of the literalized myths of gender and family and its subsequent deconstruction of this framework through metaphoric ambiguity. By destabilizing the conventional frame through which the rhetorical subject is constructed, the movies question reified social practice. Such a reading revises the feminist challenge to these texts, locating them in a broader cultural tension revolving around reproductive practice." [from ABC-CLIO America: History & Life]

The article discusses social options examined in the films "A Prophet," directed by Jacques Audiard, and "Avatar," directed by James Cameron. The author begins by examining the use of communication in the films of Audiard. The author explains how the protagonist of "A Prophet," Malik El Djebena, is a talented linguist who uses this to his advantage in prison. The article explores how both films feature a young protagonist who breaks free from a racist father figure in order to achieve leadership. The technology used in the making of "Avatar" is briefly discussed.

Contemporary films and novels have mirrored this trend, creating a blend of simulations mixed with everyday reality that Bruce Sterling has called ?slipstream fiction.? To explore this phenomenon, we analyze three films that mix simulation with reality: The Thirteenth Floor, Dark City, and Mulholland Drive. These films present themselves initially as murder mysteries, but this pose quickly gives way to even more serious concerns, about the ontological status of the represented worlds. The narrative configurations suggest that when death is no longer the plots' logical end point, storytelling techniques undergo significant transformation, subverting usual assumptions about chronology, subjectivity, and topology and requiring new interpretive techniques."

This article makes use of Darko Suvin's theory of the novum and Raymond Williams's cultural materialism to analyse three urban-dystopian science fiction films: Fritz Lang's Metropolis (1927), Ridley Scott's Blade Runner (1982) and Alex Proyas's Dark City (1998). It argues for the central significance of utopia, dystopia and cinema to SF. It explores the themes of class and gender, the uses of intertextuality, and the representations of the human and the posthuman in these three films. Drawing on Jameson, Baudrillard and others, it argues that the first film exhibits a characteristically modern, the latter two different versions of a characteristically postmodern, ‘structure of feeling’.

From 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' (1951) to 'Independence Day' (1996), science fiction filmmakers have used national monuments as iconic metonyms for American national identity, history, and ideals. As scenes of action, destruction, or ruin, such sites as the Washington Monument or the Statue of Liberty play a key role in conflicts between humans and the alien Other. [M. Schumacher]

Moving back and forth between the national icons of Washington and the workaday world of ordinary Washingtonians, Wise depicts post-World War II Washington as a site of ideological struggle.

Abstract: "In her paper, "Science Fiction, Forbidden Planet, and Shakespeare's The Tempest," Simone Caroti illustrates the way in which Cyril Hume and Fred Wilcox's 1956 science fiction movie Forbidden Planet -- whose plot is inspired by Shakespeare's Tempest -- reconfigures in Shakespeare's play. Caroti begins by defining the genre of science fiction and explaining its attraction for modern audiences. Following Darko Suvin's notions of science fiction, Caroti highlights the theme of cognitive estrangement and shows how Forbidden Planet offers a cultural translation of this theme in The Tempest. The result of Caroti's analysis is to read Prospero and his magic in contemporary terms: the film translates Shakespeare's sense of wonder and the conflict between the rational interpretive self and the forces of the irrational into a search for truth and an understanding of the place of humanity in the universe."

In the movie 'Forbidden Planet' (1956), the central character of Dr. Morbius, an authority in philology, embodies a distinctively American reaction to the incursions of émigré literary study into the academic world and popular culture of the 1950's, which presaged a reshaping of literary and linguistic study. The article focuses on Leo Spitzer and Erich Auerbach as examples of the European emigré scholars Dr. Morbius represents.

UC users only
In contrast to SF literature, most SF films have responded negatively to technology, seeing it as a force in contemporary society that has had a deleterious effect on the quality of human life. Herbert Marcuse and Jacques Ellul, two of the most pessimistic analysts, have expressed their criticisms of technology in ways that also find expression in some of these films, which are preoccupied with many of the same issues. Three in particular-Forbidden Planet (1956), Colossus: The Forbin Project (1969), and Alien (1979)-can be seen as responses to the theorists in question. In each case the films adopt positions that, while sympathetic with many aspects of Marcuse's indictment of technology, challenge his belief that this technology could ever be a vehicle for human liberation. In contrast, they assume positions closer to that of Ellul, who sees technology's effect on the quality of human life as thoroughly debilitating.

The classic 1950s sf films Them! (1954) and Forbidden Planet (1956) draw on Darwinist plots of future warfare and sexual selection to represent men as natural soldiers and masters of technology, limiting the roles of women to romantic interests for the military men. However, they differ from other contemporary films in their representation of the roles women should play in the military and in their attitudes toward violent evolutionary masculinity.

Shapiro traces the evolution of Atomic Bomb Cinema in U.S. and Japanese films from the 1950s and '60s. Utilizing the theories of Erik Erikson, John Collins, and Eric Cassell, this essay interprets Atomic Bomb Cinema through the lenses of crisis, apocalypse, and suffering. After contextualizing the films in relation to The Time Machine, the essay analyzes four films, On the Beach, The Incredible Shrinking Man, Mosura tai Gojira, and Ikimono no Kiroku.

The theremin played a unique role in 1950s science fiction films. In Rocketship X-M, The Day the Earth Stood Still, The Thing from Another Planet, and It Came from Outer Space, the instrument was not just a component of the studio orchestra but, in effect, the diegetic "voice" of the alien entities.

"The writer discusses the similarities between George Miller's Mad Max trilogy and T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land. In developing its theme of redemption, the Mad Max trilogy articulates some of the same concerns as can be found in Eliot's poem. Both the poem and the films draw on archetypal themes from sources such as Sir James Frazer's The Golden Bough and Jesse L. Weston's From Ritual to Romance. The spare dialogue of the movies often appear to echo Eliot in his description of the waste land. Furthermore, the desolate land in the poem appears to be the same vision brought to life in Mad Max. Even though The Waste Land is concerned with the destruction of Western culture and the Mad Max trilogy deals with the destruction of society, they both share the same bleak vision of the future."

"An analysis of four Australian films reveals visions of collectivity and exclusion in fictional Australian communities. 'Breaker Morant' relies on melodrama to portray Australians as innocent of colonialization, and makes them sympathetic characters facing the real colonizers, England. 'Sunday Too Far Away' portrays Australian shearers as rugged individuals who are skilled workers, and macho. The 'Mad Max' movies reveal a similar male bonding, and show the Australian male as a marginalized, independent family man." [Expanded Academic Index]

An overview of the history of K/S is presented and broader issues of queerness, character archetype and the role of the audience in constructing new non-hegemonic narratives outside the bounds of the poached parent narrative is explored using K/S as a launching point. K/S represents a fan folklore in which an aberrant reading of a genre-specific narrative has had the power to transcend issues of genre, gender, sexuality, medium, time, as well as the retirement of the primary narrative source.

"Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1997 SF-TH Inc. This discussion examines Star Trek: The Next Generation's recurring interest in heterosexual desire and its frustration. In several key episodes of the series, heterosexuality is simultaneously reinscribed as the essential locus of desire, and disrupted by repeated assertions of the inescapable differences between men and women. The essay offers a lengthy discussion of two key episodes, "The Perfect Mate," and "In Theory," in terms of their constructions of the ideal romantic Other, and their conclusions about the ultimate inaccessibility of that ideal. It situates this disruption of desire against the backdrop of both current popular culture discourse about heterosexual romance, and the postfeminist backlash against changing gender roles."

"Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1994 Association for the Sociology of Religion This essay is an ethnographic exploration of Star Trek fandom. Rather than the more common textual analyses of the program, this article examines the history and practice of the fans themselves, on computer networks, at conventions and in tourism, in "Starfleet" fan clubs and in fan literature. All these fan activities construct and add to the alternative universe of Star Trek while also connecting it with the present. At a time when scholars are finding religion in nonconventional locations, I argue that Star Trek fandom is one of these locations. Star Trek random involves a sacralization of elements of our culture, along with the formation of communities with regularized practices that include a "canon" and a hierarchy. Star Trek fandom is also associated with a popular stigma, giving fans a sense of persecution and identity common to active religious groups." [Expanded Academic Index]

Focusing on the tension between the show's utopian rhetoric of the future and its representational practices with regard to race, gender, and sexuality, it is argued that The Next Generation invites audiences to participate in a shared sense of the future that constrains human agency and (re)produces the current cultural hegemony with regard to identity politics. The closing section calls for critics to continue politicizing mediated images that appeal to popular imagination and to develop and implement a pedagogical practice of counter-imagination."

The film's plot appears to be based on the television episode "The Way to Eden" which also involved a quest of a religious nature. The mind-controlling villain in "Star Trek V" named Sybok must be stopped by Captain Kirk, in particular because Sybok has control over the Enterprise and its crew. The control Sybok exerts has a theological quality, and Kirk must try to understand it to combat it." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Most American science fiction and fantasy films focus on the significance of old-time family values and attachment to one's home. In movies such as 'The Wizard of Oz,' 'It's a Wonderful Life,' the 'Star Wars' trilogy and the 'Back to the Future' trilogy, the protagonists are depicted as individuals desiring to run away from home, only to realize in the end that doing so is an impossible feat. The films also present youthful compulsions, family cohesiveness and moral debasement. However, the essence of home and family remains to be the central idea of the films." [Magazine Index]

"The Phantom Menace, the latest film in director George Lucas's Star Wars series, is discussed. In expanding his first Star Wars trilogy into a six-part integrated whole, Lucas relies on an audience already steeped in the saga to identify and appreciate, consciously or unconsciously, his intertextual patternings, which are based on repetition, variation, and, most significantly, integration. The Phantom Menace, chronologically episode one, repeats the narrative pattern and mythological pattern of episode four, A New Hope, but has major variations that turn it into a film that emphasizes the fallibility of humankind in the characters it presents, and the difficulty of the human situation. In its emphasis on doubles and contrasts, The Phantom Menace also offers integrating audiences the intellectual, emotional, and aesthetic pleasures of an overarching metaphoric way of reading the four Star Wars films made so far."

The article discusses racial aspects of science fiction films. The author discusses how science fiction films of the 1950s such as "The Time Machine" depicted racial anxieties and how the Black Power movement resulted in the presence of more black characters in science fiction films such as "Planet of the Apes" and "Soylent Green." He suggests the motion picture "Star Wars" depicts good and evil using black and white colors but notes that the sequels feature the black character Lando Calrissian. He discusses the popularity of actor Will Smith in science fiction films such as "Independence Day" and "Men in Black" and suggests racial roles are reversed in the film "The Matrix" and its sequels.

This paper examines Paul Verhoeven's 1997 film Starship Troopers against Robert A. Heinlein's eponymous 1959 novel, arguing that both productions reinscribe the ideologies of America's mythic frontier history in their fictional futures. The paper shows that despite the conspicuous postmodernisation of narrative in Verhoeven's adaptation, components of the frontier mythology codified in Heinlein's novel— expansionism, Social Darwinism and a violent relationship with the indigenous Other—remain at the film's thematic centre.

"They came from beyond the center: ideology and political textuality in the radical science fiction films of James Cameron."Literature-Film Quarterly v22, n1 (Jan, 1994): 21 (7 pages).
UC users only
"James Cameron's science fiction movies have radical political orientations of both the right and left wing. 'The Terminator' is a right wing movie, with a vigilante overcoming the incompetence of the police. 'Aliens' is also a right wing movie, with an individual helping the military overcome the incompetence of a corporation. 'The Abyss' is a left wing movie, with benevolent aliens who are threatened by corporate authority. These films contrast with a centrist movie such as 'Them!' wherein society is threatened by giant ants and everyone pulls together to do their best." [Magazine Index]

" Films such as Terminator 2: Judgment Day (T2) and its predecessor, The Terminator (T1), both by James Cameron, make a compelling case study of the technological discourse of cinema. In T2, the T-800 Terminator robot, who is a product of the advanced industrial age although he is from the future, returns to protect humanity from the more technologically advanced T-1000, a fully fledged postmodern morph. The narrative and ideological conflicts in the film explode between human and machine, coherent subjectivity and polymorphism, and the modern and the postmodern. T2 may even address the conflict between the cinema as an industrial medium still tied to analogical mechanical reproduction and the threat of virtual reality posed by computer-generated digital media. The writer also examines the films in light of their reflection of the real relations between workers and industrial automation in the U.S. auto industry." [Art Abstracts]

"A discussion of the conceptions of the future in three science-fiction films--James Cameron's 1991 film Terminator 2, the Wachowski Brothers' 1999 film The Matrix, and Jean-Pierre Jeunet's 1997 film Alien Resurrection. While these films all try to conceive of the future by incorporating unusually explicit infanticidal imagery in story lines that revolve around threats of apocalypse, they also attempt to figure the future otherwise, to contraceive of what might come to pass. Before examining the three films individually, the writer considers three concepts--conception as literalized metaphor, evolutionary extinction, and interpellation and the formation of the human subject in relation to Judith Butler's discussion of sexual difference--as an interpretive frame for evaluating the ideological violence at work in the first two films' vision of the future and the amazing demystification of that violence in Alien Resurrection."

": James Cameron's film Terminator 2: Judgment Day is discussed. The introduction of the figure of the Liquid Metal Man (LMM) indicates a profound cultural shift in attitudes to the body politic: A section of the American population had self-consciously seen itself as democratic and unconsciously as representing healthy cells and organs in the body politic; this group needed a nonhuman other that could be eviscerated in order to confirm the group's political and spiritual legitimacy. The morphing LMM indicates a realization that democracy in mass capitalist society is inescapably technodemocracy. The LMM offers American society a reflection of itself as a political body, unvarying in its programmed need for change but also needing machines to protect it from the very production-consumption machinery to which it feels itself an appendage."

"Artificial human beings taking the forms of robots, cyborgs and androids have always played central roles in American science fiction. In the 'Terminator' films, the scriptwriter succeeded in depicting cyborgs as reflections of the technologized self. Both films unravel the impact of technological innovations on the humanity of man. It reveals the tragic flaw of individuals in revealing themselves. In their effort to define their self-concepts in accordance to society's norms, people tend to lose their individual identities. Such is the adverse effect of technological advancement." [Magazine Index]

" Hollywood was to successfully release a series of horror science fiction films depicting mutant insects in the 1950s. The postwar genre of horror films might be called 'Insect Noir' or 'Cinema Arthropoda' because bugs were to enjoy a golden age in cinema helped along by special effects considered sophisticated during that time. Such films were produced as a result of the prevailing paranoia in the US society during that period. The Japanese were to produce their own insect films in the 1960s."

"Examines science fiction films of the 1950's (made during the Cold War) and their remakes in the 1970's and 1980's (made in the post-1960's, after Vietnam and Watergate) in conjunction with stories told by social scientists during the same eras. The authors provide a subversive reading of social scientific datasets and science fiction films and pay special attention to both versions of The Thing (1951, 1982) as relevant examples of Cold War and post-1960's statements. Social scientific and film productions of the 1950's correlate with optimistic public sentiments of the Cold War era in regard to the abilities of the military, government, and medicine to solve social problems. The more recent reproductions conjure images of a much more pessimistic view of institutions. Readings of social scientific products, science fiction films, and their remakes can inform social theories in general and postmodern social theories in particular." [America: History and Life]

"An exploration of "cumulative narrative" focuses on the story of the abduction of Samantha Mulder, FBI Special Agent Fox Mulder's younger sister, on the TV series, The X-Files. Perusal of the recurring Samantha theme over the seven seasons aired in the UK through 2000 notes that Fox Mulder's pursuit of answers related to the X-files is motivated by his desire to discover the truth behind his sister's abduction. The Samantha narrative is considered in light of both a "popular culture of conspiracy," which involves the production, circulation, & consumption of conspiracy theories in popular culture, & the "conspiracy of popular culture," which centers on how "fringe knowledges" about things like alien abductions achieve mass exposure & popularity. The X-Files includes the essential elements of conspiracy theories while emphasizing the search for "truth," but it is just one of many pop-cultural products with conspiracy at its core. Theodor Adorno's (1994) astrological readings are drawn on to examine the knowledge, commodity, & culture forms/functions that help to shape the current landscape of conspiracy."

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 1999 Speech Communication Association "Arguing that the popularity and critical acclaim of The X-Files merits a thorough rhetorical investigation, the author begins by exploring the show's antecedent genre. The frequent contention that The X-Files is a science fiction program is refuted, and the show is instead linked to the genre of ontological detective stories. Armed with this background, the author describes the way in which the show simultaneously deconstructs and reconstructs authority. In three major areas-science, government, and gender - The X-Files makes use of familiar characters and narratives to create a new story which calls into question traditional boundaries and definitions. The author concludes that the vision created by the show is subversive and potentially liberating, allowing modern society the opportunity to confront its concerns about various kinds of authority and integrate them into its waking consciousness."

At the same time, media has also increasingly portrayed pseudoscientific claims as valid and to show that healthy skepticism is actually dangerous. The success of television shows such as the 'X-files' lies in its presentation of pseudoscience as if they were reality and the constant erosion of one lead character's skepticism."

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 2000 Central States Communication Association "Ethnographic investigation of the online community of X-Files fans known as "Shippers" reveals a resistive posture manifested in their websites, discussions, and fan fiction. The mostly female Shippers hypothesize an unfolding romantic relationship between the series' protagonists and thereby oppose male-oriented conventions and commercial imperatives. In touting the equal partnership of Agents Mulder and Scully, and in wanting to see that equality as the basis for a romance, Shippers conflate the public and private and challenge artificial gender dichotomies. However, the study finds that their activities do not fully compensate for marginalization of their sensibilities in the given text." [Expanded Academic Index]

"Examines popularized forms of conspiracy theory in contemporary society, focusing on those presented in the TV drama, the X-Files. Conspiracy theory is considered as a type of epistemology that provides a framework for understanding & making meaning of the world in a time of hyperacceleration, deconstruction, & a re-imagining of traditional forms of the social, cultural, & political. TV is argued to be a natural agent of this epistemology. Jean Beaudrillard's (1990) & Noam Chomsky's (1994) ideas on mass media culture are reviewed, & Michel Foucault's notion of power is applied to the conspiracy theorists' attempts to "democratise" hidden knowledge. Themes of "truth," the alien "Other," science vs religion, belief, & mythmaking in the X-Files are explicated." [Sociological Abstracts]

In the show, David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson play FBI agents who together and separately try to solve and understand what appears to be a giant government conspiracy involving alien-human hybridization. It realizes McLuhan's most famous speculations: that television is a cool medium that thrives on cool characters and involves the casual participation of all the senses; that it substitutes a vague insight for a real point of view; and that it produces a collective anxiety dominated by a free-floating terror."

"At one level, The X-Files is a science fiction program about alien visitors and FBI investigations of paranormal activities. At another level, it is one of the most sophisticated treatments of religion in the history of television drama. Its ability to interweave complex issues regarding institutional religion and practice is deserving of attention from researchers. Several episodes are analyzed in depth to uncover an arc of religious themes that parallel the plot development. Such themes deal with specific religious issues in ways that prime-time dramas seldom do. Why The X-Files is unique in its daringly serious treatment of religion is discussed."

" Pratt argues that such conspiracy films and television shows as JFK, The Parallax View, Capricorn One, All the President's Men, Enemy of the State, The X-Files, L.A. Confidential, and Blue Velvet can be understood as poignant reflections of America's "collective political unconscious." Though his book is persuasive when defining the classic period of film noir in the 1940s and 1950s as an "oppositional, expressive politics; a kind of countercinema to the optimistic Hollywood product of the time," it is less successful when attempting to argue that the femme fatales in such 1990s neo-noir as Basic Instinct, The Last Seduction, and Dream Lover exemplify understandable, justifiable, visionary paranoia born of political-correctness overload."

Author's Abstract: COPYRIGHT 2002 Southern States Communication Association "In this critical analysis, I explore the meaning-making processes related to the conspiracy discourse of the television series The X-Files. The program's narrative structure, reading positions, ideological/historical contexts, and viewers' postings on the World Wide Web suggest that the television series serves as a form of "vicarious resistance." Stated simply, The X-Files' conspiracy discourse provides a pleasurable television viewing experience rather than revolutionary action or tangible resistance. In general, this analysis explores how superficially "resistive" popular cultural texts actually maintain dominant ideology through the implicit hegemonic processes within the text and the conditions of the prevailing ideological and historical contexts."

"Many westerners have abandoned science and have turned to nonscientific belief systems for explanation of things science cannot yet prove. An example of such a belief system would be the popularity of the X-Files show on Fox. It successfully creates tension between western science based on skepticism and faith that explains things science denies or ignores." [Expanded Academic Index]

"The television program "The X-Files" deals with epistemology in a sophisticated way which reflects a complex appreciation of the search for meaning which is not usually represented in the science fiction genre. The show's incorporation of concepts related to chaos theory allows it to depict the blurring of boundaries of the paranormal and the scientific. Intuitive belief and rational skepticism in contemporary scientific epistemology are presented in the program's episodes using chaotic dynamics." [Expanded Academic Index]
