Hollywood is not in short supply of science fiction movies and TV shows involving questionable government organizations conducting unethical experiments or handling top-secret missions.
In the abundant and growing collection of audio-visual work in the sci-fi genre, there are a good number of compelling flicks that explore fringe and pseudoscientific topics like teleportation and time travel.
For example, in the 1984 film classic “The Philadelphia Experiment,” a government experiment ended up transporting two sailors from a ship in a harbor in Philadelphia in the year 1943 to the Nevada desert in 1984.
In the 1995 neo-noir sci-fi movie “12 Monkeys,” a prisoner from 2035 is sent back to the past to prevent the release of a deadly virus that erased most of mankind’s population.
