Obama Wants You To Watch These 8 Sci-Fi Films and TV Shows

Earlier this summer, President Barry O was nice enough to share his banging ass playlist of songs with us. Everything about that s**t was straight fire, so be grateful, he’s decided to share a new list of favorites. Below, you’ll find a complete list of our president’s very favorite sci-fi television shows and films.

We’ll start with a softball. You should have already seen it already.

  1. 2001: A Space Odyssey

     2. Blade Runner

I’m going to assume you’ve seen this one too, but Barry says that in addition to being an amazing movie artistically, it asks the important questions. What important question in particular?

It asks what it means to be human.

3. Close Encounters of the Third Kind

Our president knows all of our nation’s secrets. Our president has dropped bones, drone-struck children and made countless other difficult decisions. Despite what he knows, Close Encounters of the Third kind is essential viewing for the American people because:

it is fundamentally optimistic.

4. Star Wars: A New Hope

5. Star Trek (the tv show)

6. The Martian

Face it, the president just really likes Matt Damon. But he likes Keanu Reeves too.

7. The Matrix

And finally,

8. Cosmos: A Personal Voyage

Don’t tell Neil. The original was better.
