Below are the ten movies with those kinds of titles: Superman II – The title makes reference to Lex Luthor’s plan to create a “meteor shower” over much of North America, in order to turn Earth into a new Krypton and win Superman over to his side. Stargate – A remote interstellar teleportation device developed by Professor Daniel Jackson at the request of General West after Colonel O’Neill was captured by Ra the Supreme System Lord. It uses an intense energy burst composed mainly on power from naquadah reactors for gate construction (to construct gates) and access (in dialing addresses). This process takes several minutes but gives no indication as to the destination or origin of the gate. Stargate is also sometimes used to refer to a “wormhole” which is not what Daniel Jackson invented, but rather had been discovered by his father, Professor Charles Jackson and was later revealed in 1994 after being buried for years.
The Matrix – The movie’s central theme involves a computer hacker named Neo who learns that reality itself is actually an elaborate simulation created by sentient machines to placate human beings until they are completely dependent on them.
The real world as we know it does not exist anymore; humans live instead in false realities inside a matrix-like virtual world controlled by these malevolent artificial intelligences (AI) known as “the Machines” or just simply “they”. To make sure that the humans are not aware of this, there is a subliminal message in all human minds. The Truman Show – Truman Burbank’s entire life has been televised since birth, with the world watching his every move and thought on TV screens around the globe through 24 hours per day broadcasting without interruption or interference from him or anyone else living inside Seahaven Island.
Cloud Atlas – This movie tells six different stories set over different eras (the 1849 California Gold Rush to futuristic Korea) surrounding one overarching theme: humanity’s continual striving against its limitations as it evolves toward an unknown destiny. The actors play multiple roles in each story; they portray various races during these time periods, have aged between their respective eras, and their characters interact with each other across time. Citizen Kane – The story is about a newspaper magnate who builds an empire but has his life come crashing down around him as he loses everything, including his love for the beautiful Susan Alexander. American Beauty – A successful business man becomes unhappy when his wife leaves her job to become a homemaker and mother of two children, while gradually becoming uninterested in sex with him after years of unhappiness together; he shoots himself on Christmas Day at age 47. He floats above the ground (which many would perceive as being dead) before appearing in what appears to be heaven or limbo where it’s implied that things will get better than they were while alive.
