I personally am a space lover and recently was trying to catch up with new sci-fi movies which include space missions and certainly not over-dramatic. But unfortunately, couldn't find any. Therefore, my question.
Europa Report was fantastic but strangely unsettling and even depressing. Still a great watch thoughI don't think any of these are new, but just off the top of my head:
Alien <--- Personal Fav
Mission to Mars
2001: A Space Odyssey
Why did you like Passengers? I heard it was more a space soap opera than science? Maybe I heard wrong..I recommend watching films Passengers, Interstellar, Sunshine, Arrival, Moon, Gravity. The series "Stargate SG-1" is a top series about space travel. And here's another must-see Star Wars!
