"Every year people flock to see the latest and greatest sci-fi epics. Over the course of just five years, we've gotten Arrival, Annihilation, Tenet, and Dune. These large-scale releases typically feature gargantuan budgets and A-list casts. It's not hard to figure out why they garner so much attention. The hype is, generally speaking, well-deserved.
However, moviegoers only have so much time. This ultimately means that more small-scale science fiction releases have a tendency to slip through the cracks. There simply isn't as much mainstream appeal, and even if there was, the marketing can't measure up. This leaves us with a metaphorical pile of underrated sci-fi releases that must fend for themselves on streaming services.
That's why Taste of Cinema attempts to give them some sort of spotlight. In terms of popularity, these gems will never be able to stand toe-to-toe with something like Arrival. However, they deserve to find a more sizable audience regardless."
