Movies about other dimensions/dimensional travel [VC?]

    Right, I believe that I have exhausted one of my favourite genres of Sci-Fi: films about dimensional travel.

    Because this forum is a well of helpful knowledge I assumed that if there would be folk out there who knew of such niche things it would be you lot.

    Event Horizon and Primer are the sort of thing I'm bang into.
    Monsters are usually NOT the type of thing I'm into (The Mist was good though, especially the anti-Holywood ending).

    GO!...

    Hmmm, let me have a think

    Coroline? :)

    I did enjoy Coraline!

    However, I'm looking for something that has some kind of pseudo-science (however ridiculous and made up) behind the whole thing, y'know, kind of like Stargate or something.

    But not Stargate.

    Dont be dissing Stargate man!

    Something i did enjoy a lot, which is along similar lines to what youre after although not exactly, was the 2002 version of Solaris although i imagine youve seen it.

    Theres the Hellraiser films although their horror not sci-fi

    Yeah I've seen all of those and enjoyed them (to a certain degree regarding the Hellraiser sequals).

    I'm hoping for some long forgotten or straight to video lost gem.

    Although I assume the chances are slim.

    12 Monkeys?

    I havent seen that in TIME!

    Ha, or Timecop! :D

    Those are more about time travel though really

    Yeah, I include time travel in my view of dimensional travel.

    Sadly, I've seen those two.

    Source Code? The Jacket? That new one with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt?

    Wracking my brains here!

    I love Event Horizon but I can't think of anything similar, not from a film point of view anyway. As a MASSIVE geek I loved Babylon 5 and Lost which had a bit of what you're after.

    Interstellar, the new Christopher Nolan film, sounds like the kind of thing you're after.

    The Jacket; never heard of that one! I'll give it a Google now!

    I was reading about Interstellar the other day. Pretty excited for that!

    Stalker and Solaris by Andrei Tarkovsky are both worth a watch

    Have you seen Looper? It was pretty good.
     
  18. Black.Wire

    Black.Wire Member

    Aye seen all of the above and loved all three, although Looper was a bit questionable in places.

    Brian De Palma's film Mission to Mars and The Black Hole (weird 70's Disney film even though you wouldn't think so). The One, Jet Li film?
     
  21. Not exactly what you're after but seeing as you've seen all the others - The Quiet Earth, 80s Australian film.
