    I saw a very cool scientific movie- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fortress_2 Its script might be a flop, but it seems from some scenes that it tries to prove some science concepts. Like flying in space without a space suit! Factors like no gravity, zero-air, pressure difference in space etc might be some other space zone thesis!
    Proof of societies living in space, interiors of the space ship is like of the movie alien-predator movie world!
    So can human beings somehow fly into space?

    you clearly missed the second part of the genera name Fiction. The movie proves absolutely nothing other then bad sci-fi movies exist.

    But if it was fiction then why there are similarities with other films? Like most of the sci-fi films were based on similar realities!

    Ummm, no, its because the writers liked elements that are similar to other movies. Saying all sci fi movies are the same is so grossly generalizing that you end up with nothing left. Ghostbusters is not like Star Trek, which is not like Sucker Punch, etc, etc, etc

    You are linking movies you like and totally ignoring the vast majority that disprove your point.

    He is right on one thing science fiction is starting point of an idea. 10 years ago nanotechnology was fiction, even i saw some of the products built from it and i hardly belive it even now. But it true and it exists.

    The only problem with this, is that it is wrong. Nanotechnology emerged as a concept not from fictional concepts, but some forty years ago in the mind of Drexler. I am sure there were others thinking along similar lines at the time, none inspired by SF.

    Is the future also set in the 1980s?

    So i think its like that famous saying...'what came first- the chicken or the egg?'

    Then was the 'predator part 1' was made really by shooting every movie scene with the cast?
    Or
    Did the US directors did some hocus-pocus and found a cassette video recording by which they were amazed and reproduced it for public sale as entertainment!???
    Which infact is like a future prediction though, which would not be accounted in real!??

    So the future isn't set in the 80s, but they start using video cassettes again?

    Well, I'm convinced.

    Another cool sci-fi concept is a old timer cartoon series 'he-man and the masters of the universe'
    In it there is a action figure called greek 'stratos' and his staff.
    They fly in the air and have wings???!!!!



    Something like the mythological creatures of iran!
