5. Sunshine 2007
This is a visually stunning movie. Not just that its easy to get emotionally drawn in. I mean it is about earths survival after all. Great acting and a very interesting story. if you’re looking for a disaster movie set in space with some amazing eye candy, this is the one.
4. John Carter 2012
More of a fantasy movie than a Sci-Fi movie but its set on Mars and has aliens, so it joins the list. John Carter is quite an epic move in terms of size, a shame it didn’t do well in the box office. It reminds me a lot of Pirates of the Caribbean and features one very good boy (alien space dog).
3. Dune 1984
A classic Sci-Fi movie that isn’t Star Trek or Star Wars. Even better, the movie features Arabic / Muslim inspired themes. That’s right, Islam in Space! It’s an interesting watch but you’ll need to pay attention.
2. District 9 2009
The closest we’ll ever get to a Half Life movie, District 9 is an amazing story driven experience. I love the social commentary on refugees and people that are different to you.
1. Life 2017
This movie was rumoured to be a prequel to Sony’s standalone Venom movie and I kept this in mind while watching it. Just imagine the extraterrestrial life they discovered to be the symbiote that will become Venom.
