I'm an admitted space geek, so movies like Gravity, Apollo 13, The Right Stuff and the new Christopher Nolan movie, Interstellar, are right up my alley.  The special effects in movies have come so far in the decades since Star Wars.  I'll often find myself gripping the armrest of my chair to the point of exhaustion.

Check out the new trailer for Interstellar, where 2001: A Space Odyssey meets Deep Impact.
