Authentic Science Fiction Movie quotations
I think people who vibrate at the same frequency, vibrate toward each other. They call it, in science, sympathetic vibrations.

I've always found that when you're trying to create illusions with sound, especially in a science fiction or fantasy movie, that pulling sounds from the world around us is a great way to cement that illusion because you can go out and record an elevator in George Lucas's house or something, and it will have that motor sound.
In Hilbert space no one can hear you scream.
The Jetsons had them in the 1960s. They were the defining element of 'Knight Rider' in the 1980s: cars that drive themselves. Self-driving cars appear in countless science fiction movies.

Fiction is the truth inside the lie.
In space, no one can hear you scream.
Remember, science fiction's always been the kind of first level alert to think about things to come.

I've seen things you people wouldn't believe.
What is now proved was once only imagined.
Science fiction is always a vehicle for ideas.
It's the form which allows either movies or books to be an exploration of how we should live.
The thing about science-fiction fans and "Star Wars" fans is they're very independent-thinking people.

I think action movies on the whole have moved more and more into large spectacle, even leaving out super hero movies that seem to me to be more a fantastic science fiction than they are action movies.

No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.
It's one of those things that if I was smart enough to explain it in words, I wouldn't have had to make a movie "World Of Tomorrow" out of it. It's a love letter to science fiction.
The idea of doing a period movie, some people say, "Isn't it odd that you're doing a period movie? That's a change of pace for you." And, I'm like, "Not really." When you're doing a science fiction movie, it's almost exactly the same.

If we're talking about the science fiction or action genres, I've always tried when I could to do them in a way that's not just cookie-cutter - that they bring something fresh or original to it, have some kind of ideas to it. I've been fortunate, in some sense, to do those kinds of movies that are unique.
Science is the best idea humans have ever had. The more people who embrace that idea, the better.

I would be more frightened as a writer if people thought my movies were like science fiction.
I would love to take control of the entire universe and for five years you give every movie the same widespread distribution no matter what movie and see if there's a real discrepancy between people coming to see science-fiction films or superhero films.

I was also a science fiction and fantasy fan, growing up, in games and books and movies.
