I love space! The Final Frontier, the infinite vastness filled with pitch-black void of nothingness. How does one NOT love the mysteries the cosmos holds? The only way for us to imagine how it’s like up there, is to A) become an astronaut or B) watch a lot of sci-fi movies.
As much as I’d love to see our Blue Marble from a space station, I’ll just stick to the movies. Here are top 8 best space movies ever made!
1) 2001: A Space Odyssey
Easily one of the most fantastic and influential cinematic masterpieces, in this post. It was released over 50 years ago, and still hold up, probably thanks to Stanley Kubrick’s direction and vision. The movie is such a cerebral experience, you simply have to see with your own eyes.
2) Event Horizon
Laurence Fishburne and his crew are sent to explore this long-lost space ship, that disappeared years ago into thin air. What they find inside is nothing short of terrifying: no bodies, no blood, only demons from the depths of hell! It’s not necessarily a “good” movie, more like “so bad it’s good”, but I still love rewatching it once a year.
Enter Xenomorph! One of the scariest sci-fi horror movie ever produced. There’s tension, the stakes are real, the props look phenomenal, and every scene used to make me chicken out. That’s a sign of a fantastic movie. Watch Aliens while you’re at it.
