    With Ad Astra being released, we’ve reached the end of a pretty great decade of proper space films.

    But which is best?

    I voted for my favourite (Interstellar) but objectively I think Gravity, First Man and maybe even High Life are better films. I haven’t seen Ad Astra though.

    Tough call, but I went Gravity. I don’t think any of the listed films are great or masterpieces.

    Passengers and Life are just bad movies. Ad Astra was condescendingly narrated and weirdly meatheaded for something I was told was introspective. High Life was 70% of the way to what it wanted to be. Prometheus had some good setpieces but was rather bad otherwise.

    So that leaves 4 movies.

    The Martian is a well-structured and acted movie, but also the kind that left my head soon after.

    First Man is a gutsy film, an anti-crowd pleaser that is actually about dealing with a culture that demands grief be repressed and ignored. That having been said, I probably liked it more in theory than in practice.

    Interstellar is a messy, messy movie. It has some really bad dialogue moments, off-kilter pacing, and is easy to mock. That having been said, I nearly picked it because it is so earnest, as well as containing some of the best set-pieces put into cinema this decade (the docking scene, the wave planet, the library).

    I picked Gravity ultimately because, despite some occasional logic gaps with zero-G physics, it is a very direct and focused action movie that knows how to get to the point. Great performances, beautiful as hell. I’m still not sure I’d call it worthy of Best Picture accolades though.

    Best Picture: Parasite

    Ad Astra is the only great film here; a couple others are solid-to-good.

    1. Ad Astra
    2. First Man
    3. High Life
    4. Prometheus
    5. Interstellar
    6. Gravity
    7. Passengers
    8. The Martian
    9. Life

    I’ve always felt that Gravity started it all. And it is the best out there.

    Second place is Arrival.

    I just love movies. And awards.

    Arrival isn’t a space movie.

    Passengers and Life are among the worst offenses here. Prometheus wasn’t that good considering how convoluted it is. The Martian is dull. First Man had potential but fell into basic territory.

    Interstellar is the most overrated here. It attempts to seem cerebral when it’s really nothing beneath the surface of what it presents. Gravity is a technical marvel and entertaining but it’s not any type of masterpiece.

    High Life was very good but not great like it was said to have been.

    That leaves Ad Astra, which is actually the only excellent film here. Truly magnificent.
