Looking for a good space movie. Watched interstellar recently and it got me in the mood. Something with a lot of science involved. Already seen Event Horizon, Moon, Red Planet, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Gravity, and Mission to Mars. I'm sure with the list I have you can gauge the kind of thing I'm looking for.
>>607040724 Great movie, but it's more about adventure than the science of it. Love that movie, need to watch it again. >>607040667 I've heard really good stuff about Dr. Who but the first episode I watched seemed kinda dumb.
>>607043808 Moon was a pleasant watch, I only mentioned it because I figured it would get mentioned here. Red planet was a fun story and had science elements in it, I don't see too much of the problem other than it had excessive person-to-person drama more than other aspects.
The Machine There was a couple of sci-fi movies directed by a Japanese guy recommended on /tv/ a week ago in an interstellar thread. Both movies had ruffly the same name but one was an abbreviation of the other if i remember correctly. Any help?
>>607044355 I watched it too. It was mildly entertaining. Concept was good, but they completely ruined it after a while.
>>607044490 >Its set on earth, but an alien visits and tells us the way. The thing is, we don't know if it is an alien or not. Brilliant movie though, the flash back scene really hit me right in the feels. Kevin Spacey is really, really good.
>The Impossible Planet + The Satan Pit >The Empty Child + The Doctor Dances >Rise of The Cyberman + The Age of Steel + Army of Ghosts + Doomday >42 >Blink >Utopia+The Sound of Drums + The Last of the Time Lords > The Sontaran Stratagem + The Poison Sky > Silence in the Library + Forest of the Dead > Waters of Mars > The End of Time 1 and 2
Honestly the best ones with the strongest stories without being overly sappy or catering to the kiddiwinks. The trade off is fairly poor CGI and practical effects.
Personally I've chosen the ones with a horror element in the list. My favourite 2 being the Impossible Planet and the Satan Pit.
>>607044963 I liked cloud Atlas based on me having this thing where I love short stories (especially horror, I usually get my fix by re-reading manga likes "flesh colored horror" , "horror mansion", and "collapse of the world as we know it" the last one is extremely graphic) but I occasionally go to youtube and watch short films and twhile there is an endless onslaught of shit and trash there is occasionally short films that have a space element to them that really do great job of telling a story in 4-12mins. yes, 12 minutes is a lil long for a short story but sometimes it helps build the atmosphere of the video
What I especially loved was how different each story was. I mean, a comical escape from the retirement home, mixed with futuristic sci-fi gadgets and cannibals (fucking Hugh Grant as a cannibal), with fast-paced kung fu action with a crime mystery set in the 1960s and a love story about impossible love. I mean, it was really really brilliant.
>>607045594 I still have half of the last season remaining (and I've seen none of the spinoffs, but I don't think I will though).
Yeah, I watched about half of SG-1 back when it went on TV, and recently started watching Atlantis on Netflix. Atlantis is okay, but they're really not living up to their potential. I think I'll watch SGU after Atlantis, as I hear it's really good as well.
Of course, speaking of good sci-fi shows, Firefly+the movie is really good.
>>607046100 I'm about to start Firefly funnily enough. Atlantis does get better though, sort of settling into a more comfortable groove. It still stays outlandish, silly and visually gaudy - but becomes its own beast.
>>607046219 Didn't like her too much myself, but seriously the actor who plays Boomer is the worst. Talk about only having a single facial expression.
Loved Tigh though, I love anti-heros who do what's right (at least given the current information) even though it's unpopular.
Kinda confused me with the Callie+Chief thing though. I though the Helo and Boomer-kid was special as it was the only Cylon-Human hybrid. Maybe it's explained in the remaining half of the season, I dunno. Gotta download it, they removed it from Netflix in my country.
Dead Star (funny, cool) Sunshine (amazing!) Cargo (amazing visuals) 5th Element (no comment needed) Alien 1-4 and Prometheus (great classics) Moonraker (hilarious) Dark City (mindbending) Event Horizon (funny action horror) The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (could be better but still...) Gattaca (them eugenics) Barbarella (them vintage boobs)
>>607046127 >>607046127 Why everyone hating on Event Horizon. I thought it was dope. A rare horror flick where the people aren't complete fucking retards. You're a nigger that probably thinks "The Mist" is good, with the whole "You just cut off a tentacle, but I think you're just messing with me. Going outside now derp derp derp" bullshit.
>>607046432 Well, have about one and a half season left of Atlantis. I think they fucked up with the Ancient-replicator storyline, and they always introduce stuff mid-season that are crucial to the season finale which gets sort of tiring.
>oh hey, I didn't mention for the last 4 seasons that I had a boyfriend among the athosians, but hey I do and now I'm pregnant
What I like though, are the early encounters with the wraith and how they are really alien compared to the humans and how they don't talk alot because they are superior and don't have to explain shit. However, it kinda bugs me that they are telepathic but seem to yell orders to eachother instead of just communicating telepathically (something they can do across vast distances in space apparently).
>>607040855 Doctor who is absolutely fucking shit. Sorry dr who bros but it really is low budget low rate crap and that's from a Brit. I do not understand how it is popular. Beyond trash, cheesy, poorly acted, crap effects, crap stories.
>>607046806 Yeah agreed. My main criticism was the lack of foresight but also the lack of character death. Seriously, by the end of it all there's so few dead characters that the whole saga felt like a field trip. It's stupid.
>>607047049 It's poorly acted now with crappy stories that are always cheesy.
I can appreciate that the early series with Eccelson and David Tennant had some extremely well written episodes that were compemented by their good acting to produce a great atmosphere of suspense. Others were, and are, absolute trash - I fully agree.
I cant remember the name but it isnt directly a space movie but it does have aliens. Help me remember the name please I I know you guys had to have seen it.
Starts off with some hillbillys trying to capture something in the middle of the forest only to find out they are catching an alien and you cant look into its eyes or it can control you with their physic powers they drive to their firends fortified bumfuck notwhere house with the alien and shit starts happening.
I saw it like 3yrs ago on Netflix and cant remember the fucking name
>>607047049 >Doctor who is absolutely fucking shit. Sorry dr who bros but it really is low budget low rate crap and that's from a Brit. I do not understand how it is popular. Beyond trash, cheesy, poorly acted, crap effects, crap stories.
Longest-running sci-fi series of all time. That carries a good deal more weight than your opinion.
>>607047199 RTD will always be better than fucking Moffat. I mean, RTD was even offered to write for George Lucas and the clone wars. Moffat worked well as a single-episode writer, but for running the show he is just shit.
>>607047199 I really hate that Capaldi is being given this garbage scripts as the doctor I hope it doesnt ruin his career. I was excited to see he was going to be the next doctor then all I see is this liberal garbage bull shit. We were forced to choke down on matt smith's brand of horse shit. Now they give Capaldi (who would be my favorite doctor, also it may have been a minor roll but come on John Fucking Hurt was the War Doctor fucking awesome) all this tree hugging garbage as the main focus and all that trash with the whole Danny Pink thing the other main focus. That being said the episode about the beings from the 2nd dimension was the only really good one so far from the ones Capaldi has been on.
>>607048086 >John Fucking Hurt was the War Doctor fucking awesome Am I the only one who didn't like this retconn? I mean Moffat basically ruined the entire Last Great Timewar thing that RTD had built up, and the entire premise for Eccleston's doctor with it.
Fair enough. Doctor Who (particularly the pre-2005 series) DID have a shit budget which resulted in crap effects. However, you are absolutely wrong about the stories. They were, and continue to be, the reason this show has survived as long as it has. The vast majority of the stories have been, at a minimum, pretty good. Any problems that people have with the acting tend to result from the BBC's desire that the show be targeted at younger audiences despite the fact that the actual audience tended to be much older. The characters and the writing more than made up for the lack of a production budget.
>>607048086 Yep. Matt Smith was a fucking joke - his serious face looked like mummy hadn't given him his treat, and the plots were shitty G rated family hour stories where nobody dies. Capaldi looks to be continuing that trend, despite us knowing that he can play the best 'grumpy cunt' with roles in Skins and The Thick of It. But nah, he's just some lobotomised character without strong emotions.
And I can't believe they didn't do more with John Hurt. Biggest fucking disappointment seeing him being used like a kleenex.
>>607048242 Yeah I'll give ya that it got outta hand, I like John Hurt though he's an amazing actor, in my usually shitty opinion. But you know part of all that mixed up shit was because Eccleston didn't want to be the War Doctor the srcipt was actually overhauled because of this. While it would have had a similar plot Eccleston turning down the role meant they had to change shit he didn't even want to appear in the episode AT ALL.
I can't blame him though, it wasn't going to be that good no matter what, and I think part of the reason a lot of male who fans are happy with it is cuz matt smith isnt thw doctor anymore. sidenote personally I really enjoyed the original season 1 of DW in it's black and white glory
>>607045314 - this so much. some laughable overweight middle aged spacemen and tacky russian space-stations in it, but it's very good. if you like your sci-fi loyal to it's source material, arty, and weird this'll be right up your street. even the george clooney one isn't terrible, but it's not a scratch on the original. read the book too, it's one of my favourite books of all time.
- space odyssey 2010 is pretty underrated and more accessible than it's predecessor
- sunshine is great until it turns into a slasher flick towards the end
- dark star. john carpenter does a sci fi early in his career and it's weird and awesome
think just about every other good space film has been mentioned in this thread. you'll be good for a while OP
>>607048476 I keked so hard at 'grumpy cunt' my dog looked at my like I was fucking crazy. I was pissed off I thought they were gunna do a mini series Or atlwast 2-3 episodes but No. "Hurr durr lets waist his talents like a some of dumb cunts"
>>607049177 spoken like a nigger who l's never watched Captin Planet
Btw the fifth element was pussy remember the very end? Douche Willis, living hard or dick trying in Lilu.
>>607049532 Fuck you nigger TRANSFORMERS and DINOSAUCERS!!!! (Keeping in spaceish related theme) Never said I liked the show but you had to have seen it a few times while NOTHING else worth a damn was on.
