...after all, sci-fi can vary a lot in how much actual feeling and humanity it contains. Some of it is very cold and distant (yet often excellent nonetheless), some of it is heartfelt and emotionally intense.

SciFi can be everything from just an Adventure film - to a Special Effects vehicle - to a bit of kitsch comfort food ('rocket on a string')
...& every great once in a while - real Ideas.
...On Film. (which after all tends towards Spectacle & Drama.)
In Literature - the standards for SciFi among the discerning tend to be higher re Ideas... but I suppose there's ample Trash - & trash - there too...
