If you’re left wanting more after watching the new Rebel Moon trailer, here are five ideal movies to satisfy that craving. You just need an active Netflix subscription.


Science fiction movies never go out of style. They keep improving thanks to new technologies; just compare the first Star Wars movie to the latest. The storyline hasn’t changed much, but it shows there’s plenty of potential.

Many science fiction films find a home on Netflix and end up on the service’s top 10 movie list. Today, we’re going to suggest five ideal movies to watch on Netflix this November.

Five ideal science fiction movies for this month

65 (2023)

We need more dinosaur movies apart from Jurassic Park. Luckily, Scott Beck and Bryan Woods made dinosaurs the stars of 65, a simple science fiction thriller. Set 65 million years ago, pilot Mills (Adam Driver) from the planet Somaris signs up for a two-year expedition to earn money to treat his daughter’s illness. During the journey, Mills’ ship crashes on an unknown planet, which turns out to be Earth.

All passengers aboard die except Mills and a young woman named Koa. Their only chance of escape is to find an escape pod atop a mountain 15 kilometers away. Mills and Koa quickly learn that dinosaurs, not humans, are the dominant species on the planet, and these creatures will do everything possible to prevent humans from reaching their destination.

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)

The God of Monsters faces off against King Kong in the battle for supremacy in Godzilla vs. Kong. Five years after the events of Godzilla, Kong lives on Skull Island under the watchful eye of Monarch. Meanwhile, Godzilla lurks underwater, emerging to attack and decimate anything in its path.

Now that the Titans have been unleashed upon the world, Apex’s CEO, Walter Simmons (played by Demián Bichir), recruits Dr. Nathan Lind to lead an expedition to find an energy source located in the Hollow Earth that could control the monsters.

To locate Hollow Earth, scientists need Kong to be their navigator. But if only it were that simple; Godzilla has other plans, attacking Kong and facing off against the beast.

The Adam Project (2022)

“The Adam Project” is a time-travel adventure inspired by “Back to the Future.” As the movie unfolds, it becomes a surprisingly effective family drama. Pay close attention because there are multiple timelines at play.

In 2050, fighter pilot Adam Reed (Ryan Reynolds) steals a time jet to travel back to 2018 and save his wife, Laura (Zoe Saldaña). During the journey, Adam crashes in 2022 and encounters his 12-year-old self (Walker Scobell).

The young Adam struggles to cope with the death of his father, Louis (Mark Ruffalo), and drifts apart from his mother, Ellie (Jennifer Garner). Due to his injuries, future Adam must bring young Adam along to the past. However, Maya Sorian (Catherine Keener), who monopolized time travel and became the most powerful leader in the future world, seeks to prevent the Adams from altering the past.

Vivarium (2019)

A terrarium used especially for small animals. Vivariums are made to confine animals. There’s no way out. Using this knowledge, you can deduce the basis of “Vivarium,” a 2019 horror film by Lorcan Finnegan starring Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg.

Gemma (Poots) and Tom (Eisenberg) are a young couple looking to buy their first house. Against their better judgment, they follow Martin (Jonathan Aris), an eccentric real estate agent, to a suburban neighborhood with identical green houses called Yonder. While Gemma and Tom explore the area, Martin disappears.

As the couple tries to leave, it becomes a maze as they always end up back at the house. Trapped, Gemma and Tom search for an exit, but the presence of a baby complicates things in this enigmatic science fiction mystery.

Project power (2020)

“Project Power” explores the dilemma of gaining superpowers without knowing the outcome. Set in a futuristic New Orleans, a mysterious pill called “Power” is flooding the streets. Upon consumption, people gain superpowers for five minutes.

However, what powers you’ll get and how they’ll affect your body are unknown. It’s a risk many are willing to take to experience invincibility.

The distribution of Power spirals out of control as crime rises and more people overdose and die. Detective Frank Shaver (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) teams up with Robin (Dominique Fishback), a young drug dealer, and Art (Jamie Foxx), a former soldier, to trace the origin of Power’s distribution. But to achieve their goal, they might have to ingest the very drug they’re trying to stop.
