Neil Armstrong was a real life superhero. It doesn't matter how many times humans walk on the moon, how long ago it happened or if you believe it didn't happen at all, there's still something endlessly cool about this guy.
To commemorate Neil Armstrong's passing, we picked our ten favourite films about space, simultaneously the most interesting and terrifying subject the movies have ever tackled:
Why do the Bowie family have a weird obsession with space? Duncan Jones, son of David Bowie, turned out to be quite a director. Meanwhile, clones.
Everything about Starship Troopers
is hilarious. "THE BUGS LAID A TRAP FOR US SIR!" etc.
The scariest movies about space are the ones that could/did actually happen. They also prompt the best dinner table conversations, 'would you rather burn up on impact or suffocate in the atmosphere?' for instance.
Such a happy name for such a fucking terrifying movie. Note: this is not a musical.
Why is everyone on the Starship Enterprise really good looking? Weird coincidence.
The Bourne Identity... on Mars!
Sean Connery, prostitutes, mining, Jupiter= ingredients for a great movie.
NO ONE CAN HEAR YOU SCREAM, YOU GUYS.
2001: A Space Odyssey
Stanley Kubrik thought we'd discover aliens by 2001, in actuality we watched Britney Spears dance with a snake. THE END.
