"If you are more in the mood for something more serious, there is also a science fiction movie LX 2048 both written and directed by Guy Moshe with British thespian James D'Arcy in the lead role. Gina McKee also stars in the film which has the story set in the near future, in which the sun has become so toxic people can no longer leave their houses in daytime, and normal life is conducted mostly inside the virtual realm. Against this dystopian backdrop, a dying man seeks to ensure the future well-being of his family, while coping with what it means to be human in this new reality. This one is getting a US release September 25th!"

How come there are never any 'happy' sci-fi movies anymore?

Possible answers:
1. Because the folks writing them have no hope for the future.
2. Because none of the predictions in happy sci-fi movies of yesteryear have come to pass. (Still waiting on my flying car!)

I remember a "Popular Mechanics'" way back in the 70's or early 80's that had an article on flying cars.
You little car would drive into an 'airport' that had these wings staged. You drove under the wing, hooked it onto your re-enforced roof, plugged in a couple of cables, lowered your sun-visor that was equipped with instruments, taxied down the runway and whoosh! You wold fly to the closest 'airport' to your work, reverse process the wing and finish your commute.
sigh…

Considering that Ozone depletion seems to be one global threate that is approaching the status of under control, if not under repair, this seems an odd premise.

Unless like "The Outer Limits" episode "The Music Of The Spheres" written by African American SF author and physiologist Steve barnes, the sun has suddenl;y gone into a UV Flare stage or upped UV production in some other way. Which while a little far out of probability, isn't utterly impossible.

"Still waiting on my flying car!"

That's an operator error problem.

I;ve made many cars fly – even a command track. It's just a matter of getting to the right speed before you hit the right bump in the road. ;)
