Silent Running is a classic for me.

I've tried watching Firefly a couple of times. Just cannot get into it. Going to have to give it another try.

I don't know if it will make a difference, but I saw the movie before the series, other than a single episode I saw when it originally aired.

I personally enjoyed Dark City, The Prestige, Children of Men and Moon starring Sam Rockwell. If you haven't seen any of those, then give them a shot. If you already have, congratulations, you're awesome.

Pacific Rim will be great when it comes out on BLU RAY.
Jurassic Park is also a great classic. Made in 1993 on Kauai.

I think I'm looking for some space themed sci-fi. Like Sunshine or Moon.

If you're in a reflective mood, and haven't already seen it, I can recommend Silent Running from the '70s. A bit slow - no space battles - but very deep.

Whoops, I see JK already recommended it - so I'll second it!

A few that has left a lasting impression on me:

Enemy Mine (1985)

Forbidden Planet (1956)

Howard the Duck (1986) yes, I'm an 80's kid so I have to list this;)

Metropolis (1927)

Zardoz (1974)

Hope my little list gives you some ideas!

Kind Regards :)

The Europa report. great movie and online if you know how to find it

An international crew of astronauts undertakes a privately funded mission to search for life on Jupiter's fourth largest moon.

User review:

This is a phenomenal sci-fi movie with a realistic approach to what it would be like to send a manned spaceship into the outer solar system, most precisely Jupiter's moon Europa, known for having an ice crust beneath which scientists suspect exists liquid water, maybe even an ocean. Six astronauts (four men and two women) make the team of the expedition; these knowledgeable fellows unlike those from some much bigger and dumber examples of the genre of recent memory.

I agree with Sunshine and moon. 2 very well written, original idea movies. They are not sequels,prequels,etc.., but original ideas in the very sense. Cillian Murphy is great in Sunshine, and Sam Rockwell is very impressive in Moon.
