These are movies that I have queued up for inspiration while I work on a Space Opera novella. They are all Space movies or television shows, though not necessarily Space Opera. I own most of these, or I want to own/have access to them.
- Riddick (Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick)
- Galaxy Quest
- Star Wars (the original trilogy)
- Titan A.E.
- Independence Day
- Babylon Five
- The Fifth Element
- Starship Troopers (ya gotta be in the mood for this one.)
- Wing Commander (this one is so bad, it's good)
- Star Trek, in it's many incarnations.
In the past, I've watched shows like Andromeda and Earth Final Conflict, but I haven't rewatched those since they were canceled. You can bet that the new Star Trek will be making this list when it hits DVD & will be rewatched a number of times!
I would seriously love any recommendations, so if you have a space movie that inspires you, let me know. Or if not a space movie, what movie inspires you?
