From Star Wars to Star Trek, this sci-fi film mixtape is oddly hypnotic

Even if it does miss out Doctor Who


Sometimes it’s easy to forget the breadth and quality of science fiction in the world, but then something like this new video comes along to remind us all what a brilliantly intelligent and beautiful genre of media it can be.


Combining scenes and sound from various films and TV shows across the decades, Eclectic Method’s “sci-fi mixtape” ends up with a wonderful audio/visual collage that pays homage to Star Trek, Back to the Future, The Terminator, Armageddon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars and Ghostbusters among many other classic works.


In fact, the only criticism we’d have is that it doesn’t seem to namecheck Doctor Who, but hey – if sci-fi films have taught us anything, it’s that there are always great ideas to plumb for a sequel.
