    Best Space Films of All Time.

    I am a huge fan of any movie dealing with space, deep space, sci fi space, etc. I am trying to compile a collection, at home, of all the good space flicks since the start of cinema. Looking for input on what you think are some of the best outer space movies you have ever seen.

    Star Wars I-VI
    Pitch Black
    Chronicles of Riddick

    Something about the wrinkle in your forehead tells me there's a fit about to get thrown
    And I never hear a single word you say when you tell me not to have my fun
    It's the same old shit that I ain't gonna take off anyone.
    and I never had a shortage of people tryin' to warn me about the dangers I pose to myself.

    Beat me to it. Highly recommended. We had a print screened here in town. It was damned impressive. Sort of like a super creepy Russian 2001.

    Silent Running - a classic. Gotta love Bruce Dern.
    Sunshine - Not bad, a good modern take on the droning deep space dementia plot.
    Event Horizon - Started out great, turned into a shitty horror movie.
    Alien(s) 1-3
    Red Planet - An ok mars movie with predictable horror elements.
    Serenity - Firefly was awesome.

    And whatever that movie was with the little buzzsaw things that ran through the sand and cut people up.

    2001: A Space Odyssey is not only the best science fiction film of all time, but in the running for best film overall.

    Alien was good

    Does Planet of the Apes count?

    The single most over rated film in the entire history of mankind.

    I've seen it three or four times, trying to grasp the whole vibe, and I just don't get it. 2010 Was just a scab being ripped off a fresh wound.

    Beautiful cinematography and music, but the plodding dialog and snail paced plot bored me too tears. My apologies to S. Kubrick, I love so much of his other work.

    Just one mans impression.

    I'll take Aliens, Star Wars I and maybe II (The rest were and are weak parodies of themselves) Chronicles of Riddick, The Fifth Element, The Right Stuff, Apollo 13, The Day The Earth Stood Still The remakes of Star Trek (only because I grew up watching the first reruns of the series), The Andromeda Strain, ET, Forbidden Planet, Liquid Sky, Repo Man There's all those really bad 1950's space based films that were a scream to watch in college. Santa Claus conquers The Martians priceless !!

    Oh yeah, the Welcome to Scientology Indocrtination Video (hosted by Tom Cruise)

    You need to drop acid before viewing.

    Totally agreed on 2010, tho. What a fucking pile of garbage.

    Fuck YEAH Starship Troopers!!!!

    Planet of the Apes should count...but only the original with Charlton Heston.

    Definitely Spaceballs. "Keep firing assholes!" come on!!!!



    Dune. you either love it or hate it, I happen to love it. When Patrick Stewart says "Not in the mood? Moods are a thing for love-play, and cattle!!" just sends shivers down my spine becuase you know what? He's right.
    thats new hampshire as fuck

    The Right Stuff...that counts for space movies
    My orders came through. My squadron ships out tomorrow. We're bombing the storage depots at Daiquiri at 1800 hours. We're coming in from the north, below their radar.

    No doubt. It's just that I think a SCI FI flick with the bones this one had would have been a bit more engrossing. Same with "Dune". Amazing series that was dead dull, slow and boring as a very hyped movie.

    Really, the director turned Dune into his own thing, completely. I enjoyed both the book and the film but the similarities other than nomenclature were pretty minimal.

    I actually hated that flick, mostly because the book was so good and the movie had little in common with it.
