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:

Star Wars

Standard, right?


Moon
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.


Starship Troopers
Everything about Starship Troopers is hilarious. "THE BUGS LAID A TRAP FOR US SIR!" etc.


Apollo 13
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.


Sunshine

Such a happy name for such a fucking terrifying movie. Note: this is not a musical.


Star Trek
Why is everyone on the Starship Enterprise really good looking? Weird coincidence.


Total Recall
The Bourne Identity... on Mars!


Outland

Sean Connery, prostitutes, mining, Jupiter= ingredients for a great movie.


Alien
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.

Look, I think so. But I also rate "Little Women", so my taste is questionable at best.

Which little women? The one with wynona or the one with hepburn?

I didn't realise they'd made so many versions of Little Women. There is also the one with Elizabeth Taylor.
