Yeah, I mean, Europa is admittedly pretty small, but there's room for more than just Arthur Clarke on it.

I liked Mission to Mars (the scene with Robbins and Nielsen set to Van Halen's "Dance" = one of the greatest moments in cinema history). But everyone else seemed to hate it. I think I have an idiosyncratic taste in films.

ETA: seriously, that first tracking shot! Brian de Palma rules you.
Dismissed MtM first time I saw it. Got a cheap copy on DVD, watched again, totally changed my opinion. LOVE it and put it in my pantheon of "realistic" space travel movies. And yeah, that dance scene owned me.
