There are many different tastes in movies with varying genres including drama, comedy, romance, action, and science fiction. Science Fiction movies started out very primitive and quite a low budget. In fact, all genres started out as low budget movies, but science fiction especially did.  Since its inception, it has changed dramatically to what we call science fiction today. Yesterday’s science fiction movies would be comedies today, because of their very basic scene development and limited props. The majority of the early science fiction movies seemed to be quite obsessed with outer space, landing on the moon, aliens or Martians, or any other creatures from outer space.
