4) Star Trek (2009)
JJ Abrams came in like a wrecking ball with his reboot of the Star Trek franchise. 2009 special effects allowed the world of USS Enterprise and its crew to face more realistic enemies and even the plot is kinda great!
Sandra Bullock and George Clooney hanging out at the International Space Station when suddenly something bad hits them, cutting off their comms and forcing them both to work together to survive long enough. Visually it’s one of the most faithful depictions of outer space, so you’ll feel every bit of hope floating away as you watch it. Space is awesome but also dangerous.
First time you’ll watch this movie, you’re gonna feel lost, but that just because us plebs. If your physics knowledge is on point you’ll probably enjoy it a hell of a lot more. That said, after the second viewing everything just snaps into place. Plot-wise, It’s an acid trip from start to finish! Time and space don’t always work the same in space, which makes for some amazing visuals.
