It’s hard to tell when mankind first dreamed of flying to the stars, but we haven’t stopped thinking about it since. We’ve been hearing stories of alien worlds since the dawn of time, and we’ve been making movies about going to the moon since the dawn of cinema.
Best Releastic space movies of all times
Titan A.E., Don Bluth’s most recent feature film, was co-directed by Gary Goldman and aimed to create a vast Star Wars-style universe in the world of feature animation. While critics were critical of the film, the end result is thrilling, with sparkling dialogue and surprising twists thanks to writers Ben Edlund, John August, and Joss Whedon. Matt Damon and Drew Barrymore lend their voices to an imaginative out-of-this-world adventure set in a future where humans have been dispersed across the galaxy and no longer have a homeworld. It’s up to them to save their species when they discover the secret to finding a second Earth. Titan A.E. is a clever and unusual character who deserves to be discovered again.
While Steven Soderbergh’s remake of Andrei Tarkovsky’s Solaris falls short of the sprawling original, it is an impressively complete streamlined version of a trippy, insightful sci-fi tale. George Clooney plays a bereaved counsellor sent to investigate a faraway space station whose crew refuses to return home. When he arrives, he discovers that all but two of the crew members have died, but the space station isn’t empty… It’s brimming with wit.
Many great science fiction stories have attempted to explore figurative and literal conceptions of the infinite from the farthest reaches of space, and Soderbergh’s Solaris is an excellent example.
The sun is dying, and the only way to save it is to launch a mission into space and drop a nuclear bomb on it. Sunshine may have been stupid as hell in the hands of a mainstream Hollywood producer, but director Danny Boyle (Slumdog Millionaire) and writer Alex Garland (Ex Machina) aren’t nearly as dull. Sunshine is filled with big ideas, rich characters, and a sense of existential threat that beautifully enhances this tale of extraterrestrial survivalism.
The Star Trek universe grew even larger with J.J. Abrams’ impressive 2009 reboot, which cleverly created an alternate reality while preserving all of the important continuity from the original shows and movies. Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin star in the film, which stars Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Simon Pegg, John Cho, and Anton Yelchin.
Pandorum is one of the century’s most underappreciated science fiction thrillers. Dennis Quaid and Ben Foster star as astronauts who awaken in the middle of hypersleep in a vast starship in need of repair. They have no memory and may be suffering from severe hallucinations as a result of their abrupt awakening from hibernation, and it appears that their condition can’t get any worse when they encounter man-eating monsters on the ship.
Pandorum uses space’s isolation and endless void to create a Lovecraftian atmosphere, similar to Event Horizon if the filmmakers weren’t trying to impress you with how awesome the ship looks and instead concentrated all of their attention on terrifying you.
