Posted on June 10, 2016

People always have wondered about what is there, beyond their reach.

And every year we are becoming more and more close to understanding the mysteries of our galaxy and even universe. But still there are lots of secrets, and human kind just enjoys speculating of what might waif for us there, in the outer space. Let’s turn into space explorers and watch 10 great movies about space from this weekend’s list of sci fi movies.

1. The Martian (2015)

Director: Ridley Scott

List of Sci Fi Movies

Who wouldn’t love charismatic and hilarious Matt Damon, who is trying to survive on deserted Mars? While you are watching how easily (or, at least, funny) he deals with his martian problems, you start believing that living on Mars actually isn’t that hard.

2. Interstellar (2014)

Director: Christopher Nolan

An absolutely epic and mind-blowing space movie that will challenge your perception of the world for at least 3 hours (the length of the film). And also it will make you believe that humankind is almost all-mighty. And make you read something about hardcore physics and black holes ;)

The music is worth noticing. Soundtrack, written by Hans Zimmer, will literally blow you into other worlds.

3. Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

Director: James Gunn


Watch out, this film is dangerously funny and terribly spectacular. At times you will laugh until it hurts, and at the end you will realize that now you love a raccoon and a tree. Obviously, it’s a dangerous movie.

4. Gravity (2013)

Director: Alfonso Cuarón

This film is tense and catchy. You won’t feel calm until you know how it all has ended. It shows how unfriendly the space can be, and that surviving there is way, way harder than surviving on the Earth.

5. Prometheus (2012)

Director: Ridley Scott

Here we have a highly intense thriller and some unpleasant discoveries. After decoding a series of ancient paintings, human race decides to go further and find our origins. Did they succeed in it? Well, it’s enough to say that “Prometheus” is a prequel to the “Alien”.

6. Star Wars (1977)

Creator: George Lucas

The first Star Wars movie was filmed nearly 40 years ago, so it would be fair to call this franchise epic and legendary. These weekends are weekends of nostalgia.

Another old, yet fascinating universe (that’s not even a single movie actually) at our list of sci fi movies is “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.” If you haven’t watched it, do it now. Or read it. Or listen to it. The story has a lot of variations, so you may choose whatever you like among film, book and even radio broadcast.
