Space movies: a personal tentative listby guisreis | created - 13 Nov 2016 | updated - 1 month ago | Public
Not really sure about the positions in the ranking: the movie styles are so different, I don't remember details of most of them and there are so many elements to take into consideration... I decided not to include: Watchmen, Man of Steel or Brazilian film from the 60's Roberto Carlos em Ritmo de Aventura
