Sci-Fi Movie Recommendations?

I've been in a Sci-Fi mood and I can't find it in myself to pick up a book. Something that's streaming somewhere would be preferred but I'd alsk like to hear about some obscure stuff. If you want something to go off my favorite movies in the genre are Arrival and 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    If you like '2001: A Space Odyssey,' I recommend you check out the obscure low-budget film 'Love' (2011). With a title like that, you wouldn't think it was a science fiction film. It's like a low-budget remake of '2001: A Space Odyssey.'  The filmmakers actually purchased some of the props from Home Depot! They even resorted to shaking a tail on a fake horse to simulate movement. However, it doesn't look cheap. It's so obscure I can't find anyone else who has seen it. I'm still scratching my head about it, all these years later.

    You seem to like real science fiction, as opposed to space operas (personally, I like both).  I would suggest Contact.

    The Lathe of Heaven (1980 version)

    PBS did this excellent movie. It’s on YouTube.

    Not a movie, but a TV series.  If you have Amazon Prime then check out The Expanse.  Very science-based sci-fi, and great storytelling to boot.
