The most recent one I saw was the current Star Trek movie, which is excellent, but I'm going to list two others:

2001: A Space Odyssey (Stanley Kubrick/Arthur C. Clarke)
Sunshine (Danny Boyle, Alex Garland)

Do mini series count?

If so:
Firefly
If not, the movie: Serenity

And
Apollo 13

For serious space movies, its probably much easier to tabulate the worst movies.

But, um.

Is October Sky a space movie?

October Sky

2010: The Year We Made Contact (2001 is a very good movie, but 2010 paints a more realistic, if you can call sci-fi realistic, picture than 2001's artistic and eerie story. BOTH are excellent in their own way) :mrgreen:

Apollo 13. It's a good movie, as a movie. At least if I remember correctly . . .

Ah thats too bad! :(

I liked the story involving Neptune, the trip there (inside cylinders filled with water), ion engines etc. I thought it was realistic enough and interesting.

Well, what are your favourite sci-fi movies? :)

Indeed! ROTJ for Sci-fi, Apollo 13 for realism! =D

There are movies for the Mercury program (The Right Stuff), and there are some on Apollo...are there any for the Gemini space program?

My personal favorites include Dune, Moon and silent running... If I had to be picky, and Chuck, it would be Avatar. It absolutely blew me away and the whole room away while I watched it,and I would even say it will be 80% of all audiences everywhere.
