Space movies are the closest to “being in the outer space”, in this time. There are so many good space movies that choosing some of them as favorites feel like we are doing something wrong to the films that we don’t choose. But without offending the other great films, these are my personal best 15 space films of all time. These movies are in no particular order. These are all more than great movies, these are great experiences.
- 2001: A Space Odyssey -> This movie by Stanley Kubrik is one of the greatest movies of all times, in all genres. The movie is about history, technology, future and space travel to the moon and back. Great visuals and storytelling, and a spectacular concept of space.
- Star Wars (All of Them) -> It is impossible to leave any Star Wars movie from this list. All Of them will make you fall in love with space.
- Star Trek (All of Them) -> Every Star Trek movie pulls you into the space adventures of Kirk and Spock. One of the best epic science fiction fantasies.
- Moon -> This low budget independent film by Duncan Jones is simply amazing. Great effects and marvelous performances.
- Apollo 13 -> This movie movie by Ron Howard, is a genuine tribute to the crew to Apollo 13. This movie is truly a beauty.
- Elysium -> This Movie is based in the future of 2154 where extremely rich people live on space ships and the rest lives on desolated earth.
- Wall-E -> This is an animated film directed by Andrew Stanton. A robot dedicated to finding life on earth, has finally found it and brings a new hope to the whole of humanity.
- Avatar -> James Cameron’s another masterpiece, still is the highest grossing movie ever in the world. This movie is about humans studying another planet Pandora and its life.
