Haven’t we all dreamed of being astronauts as kids? Now, most of us couldn’t really make it and as we grew up, we realized that it’s quite an unrealistic dream to look forward to. But the closest we can get to space is through movies. From documentaries to fantasy fiction, space movies help us understand real issues and problems that a human might experience in the outer space. They also give us visual treats of things beyond our imagination.
In the recent years, due to advancements in technology, space has started to become a good setting for a lot of science fiction movies and we’ve seen some really amazing movies like ‘Interstellar’, ‘Gravity’, ‘Alien’ and many others that belong to this genre. Space movies may be divisive and too highly conceptual for some but at the end of the day, whether or not we understand them, we love feasting our eyes to the surreal visual effects of these films. So if you’re in the mood for some outer space adventure, then look no further. We’ve got a list of really good space movies on Netflix just for you. The list includes sci-fi space movies and alien space films.
9. Serenity (2005)
‘Serenity’ is the continuation of a short-lived TV series called Firefly which had the same cast. The events in the movie occur after the final episode of the series. The new screenplay of the movie was written, keeping in mind the fact that new viewers should be able to understand the present and the background story and the old fans are not left disappointed. Set in the year 2517, mankind has overpopulated planet earth and moved on to neighboring planets. The Alliance is a newly formed government by the central planets that win a war over the independents — the ones who did not join The Alliance. A former veteran named Captain Malcolm Reynolds leads the crew of a spaceship called Serenity that roofs pirates and other veterans.
Dr. Simon saves his teenage telepathic sister from the wrath of the Alliance. He is then sheltered by the crew of the serenity because of which the Alliance sends an assassin to the Serenity. Meanwhile, the crew discovers the true power that Dr. Simon’s sister, River Tam holds and also about a planet named Miranda that holds the deepest secrets to something that the Alliance is probably hiding. The movie is a visual treat for its existing fans who get a lot more than what they did from the TV series and a magical journey that’ll amaze the ones who are new to the concept.
