Welcome to Boss Hunting’s weekly Box Office series where every Sunday night, we’ll be dishing out our favourite movie picks from various genres to watch while settling in with a cheeky order of Uber Eats.

It might not be everybody’s cup of tea on the regular, but when you’re in the mood for a science fiction flick, it’s just an itch that has to be scratched. And what better way to satisfy the cravings than pairing one of our five BH-approved sci-fi flicks with a scrumptious Sunday night order from Uber Eats?

John and Garry dabble in a little Chat Thai, opting for a delectable combination of cashew nut stir fry, Pad Thai, and crispy pork belly, with plenty left over for the week ahead. Here are five mind-bending sci-fi films that you should be watching tonight.

Edge Of Tomorrow

The epic action of Edge of Tomorrow unfolds in a near future in which an alien race has hit Earth in an unrelenting assault, unbeatable by any military unit in the world. Major William Cage (Tom Cruise) has never seen a day of combat when he is unceremoniously dropped into what amounts to a suicide mission. Killed within minutes, Cage then finds himself inexplicably thrown into a time loop – forcing him to live out the same brutal combat over and over, fighting and dying again… and again. Cruise links up with Emily Blunt for this engaging watch, which is Saving Private Ryan meets War of The Worlds.


One of acting extraordinaire Sam Rockwell’s best performances is in Moon, a 2009 sleeper hit that follows astronaut Sam Bell and his time alone on the rocky lunar surface. As he’s about to close out his three-year stint at the outpost, things start to go pear shaped and the truth begins to reveal itself. It’s claustrophobic, suspenseful, and a chillingly heartbreaking story.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

The best film of the Star Wars franchise post-Disney era? It’s certainly the BH consensus. Rogue One really catches the realism of the Rebel Alliance’s struggle against the empire, particularly how easy it is for brave heroes with their own story to just become another number lost in the saga. Set just before the events of A New Hope, a radical mission to steal the plans to the Death Star rests on the shoulders of an unlikely group of misfits. The final 30 minutes of this film could be the best in the franchise’s history.

Ex Machina

“To erase the line between man and machine is to obscure the line between men and gods.” In this medium-budget cult classic, Caleb Smith, a young programmer, gets a chance to become a part of a strange scientific experiment where he is expected to assess artificial intelligence by interacting with a female robot. Oscar Isaac plays the eccentric financier of the experiment which is set in the remote highlands of northern Norway. Better yet, the trailer above gives nothing away.


How could this list finish on anything but Christopher Nolan’s outer space epic, Interstellar? With humanity’s time on Earth coming to an end, a team of explorers undertake the most important mission in history: traveling beyond this galaxy to discover whether mankind has a future among the stars. Matthew McConaughey, Christopher Nolan, Hans Zimmer – next question.
