The 25 Best Sci-Fi Films Of The 21st Century So Far By The Playlist Staff | The Playlist May 7, 2015 at 3:37PM 0000014d-2eb4-d4fe-ad5d-7ff7ee200000 As kids, we looked ahead to the imminent 21st century and thought of a big bold, sci-fi future. The robot butler and trips to the drug store in hovercars version hasn’t yet arrived, but the first 15 years of this century have been extremely fruitful for big-screen science fiction. Sci-fi is almost as old as cinema itself —1902's Georges Méliès’ “A Trip To The Moon” is generally seen as the first example— but it became hugely popular in late 20th century filmmaking in the aftermath of “Star Wars,” if also somewhat watered down. Many so-called sci-fi blockbusters were really action movies with some fantastical trappings, rather than thoughtful, provocative examinations of the world we live in through speculation about worlds we might live in.
Academic Word Lists The Academic Word List (AWL), developed by Averil Coxhead at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand, contains 570 word families which frequently appear in academic texts, but which are not contained in the General Service List (GSL). Research has shown that the AWL covers 10% of words in academic texts; if you are familiar with words in the GSL (which covers around 80% of words in texts), you would have knowledge of approximately 90% of words in academic texts. The words in the AWL are not connected with any particular subject, meaning they are useful for all students. The 570 word families of the AWL are divided into 10 lists (called sublists) according to how frequent they are.
