In Celebration of ‘Ad Astra,’ Nasa Experts Name Their Favorite Outer-Space Movies

  • Indiewire
When they’re not gazing at the cosmos or pondering extraterrestrial intelligence, astronauts watch movies, too. During a recent 20th Century Fox panel on the studio lot promoting the new film “Ad Astra” and Nasa’s involvement in creating its near-future verisimilitude, four Nasa experts talked about their favorite films that take us into the unknown.

To start things off, panel moderator and “Ad Astra” director James Gray said, “I’d like to ask a nerd question if I could. What science-fiction movies inspired you?” In awe of the true-to-science realism of films such as “Gravity” and “2001: A Space Odyssey,” which essentially predicted the iPad, Gray said, regarding the believability of his own movie before a judging audience, “I’m going to face the guillotine.”

Nasa Jet Propulsion Laboratory research scientist Laura Kerber named Fox’s 2000 animated film “Titan A.E.” as her favorite outer-space screen adventure. “I thought

Star Trek: The Motion Picture Returning To Theaters For Its 40th Anniversary

Star Trek: The Motion Picture was a very important moment in the history of the franchise. After the original series was cancelled in 1969, the future of Trek was in doubt. Fortunately, it started doing very well in syndication, gradually growing a passionate fanbase that continues to grow larger each year.

Based on this, Gene Roddenberry convinced Paramount Pictures that a feature film was the best way to bring these much-loved characters back, with the success of Star Wars and Close Encounters of the Third Kind convincing the studio to take a chance on it. The resulting film was a box office hit, but critics hated it, with reviews saying that the movie was too technical, too slow-paced (it was mockingly called Star Trek: The Motionless Picture) and that the plot didn’t make a huge amount of sense.

But time has been kind to the pic, with many retrospectives considering

4 Actors Who Regretted Being In Star Trek Movies (And 21 Who Loved It)

Star Trek encompasses a simply staggering amount of content across various media. There are decades worth of television shows, over a dozen feature films, numerous video games, and piles of reading material. One could spend a lifetime devoting themselves to consuming everything under the Star Trek banner, but even focusing on one medium would take dedicated effort. With this in mind, it is a jaw dropping accomplishment to have a film series last thirteen entries over almost forty years. Star Trek: The Motion Picture kicked things off in 1979, and the most recent entry was 2016's Star Trek Beyond.

While the films are mostly enjoyable, their lowest lows are as painful as their highest peaks are pleasurable. This feeling bleeds over into the actors who took part in them as well. To highlight this, the twenty five performers presented in this list all either adored or loathed their participation in the storied films.

Star Trek Timeline Explained

James Hunt Feb 1, 2019

How does Star Trek: Discovery relate to the other Star Trek shows and movies? We unravel the history of the future to make it clear.

This article comes from Den of Geek UK.

The Star Trek canon is a complicated place. Within the TV show and movies alone, there are prequels, sequels, time travel and alternate universes to keep track of - and not all of them happen in the right order. Star Trek Discovery is the latest continuity insert (and a fine one at that) – but how does it relate to everything else?

We begin our look at Star Trek's timeline around 40 years into “our” future, at a point when the Earth is recovering from World War III…

Star Trek: 20 Things Everyone Gets Wrong About Captain Kirk

Captain Kirk is one of the most iconic characters in the history of both television and cinema. He was first brought to life by William Shatner when Star Trek premiered in 1966. That initial run only lasted three years, but left a legacy that remains to this day. Thankfully, people would see more of Trek and Kirk about a decade later with Star Trek: The Motion Picture. The movie itself is of debated quality, but it reinvigorated the series, allowing audiences to see Kirk grow older and ultimately ascend off the mortal coil. Not even this would be the end of the captain, however. In 2009, Star Trek was rebooted, with Chris Pine taking on the role.

Given Kirk's godlike stature in the pop culture pantheon, there is bound to be a lot of misinformation out there about him. Some of the information is spread maliciously, while other falsehoods developed organically with time.

Star Trek: 25 Mistakes Fans Completely Missed In The Movies

The Star Trek franchise will never fade away. During its darkest times on the brink of obscurity, it always finds a way to come back stronger, pleasing veteran fans and introducing younger generations to the final frontier. In addition to several television shows, there is also a movie series that has accumulated thirteen releases thus far.

Starting in 1979 with Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Paramount has managed to churn out a new movie every few years, only taking a significant break after 2002's awful Star Trek: Nemesis to creatively reboot the timeline with a time travel hook. While the movies are of dramatically varying quality, from some of the greatest science fiction ever made to bottom of the barrel rubbish, they do all share one thing in common - errors.

Throughout the next twenty five entries, we will take a look at twenty five gaffes that flew over everyone's heads.
