Jeorj,

Surprisingly, this poll suggestion may be different enough from other polls to be viable. This is the closest poll I've found
Best Space Movies Ever

This is the list of polls related to Sci-Fi:

I suppose Gravity... to me it kinda felt like a frustrating I Love Lucy episode where everything goes wrong, lol!

I was very disappointed with Gravity. Various violations of physics, one of which is a major plot point, took me right out of the movie, and I was not able to appreciate the visually-stunning-yet-lackluster movie. The lead actress's performance was spectacular or at least adequate, but that was to be expected, as she is very seasoned. I really never understood the acclaim for the movie. I figure it has something to do with the fact that almost the entirety of the movie takes place in the perception of weightlessness, accomplished with lots of practical effects and unnoticeable CGI. Gravity is easily eclipsed by Apollo 13, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Space Cowboys, Armageddon or Deep Impact.

Google's translation service sometimes goes with literal translations and sometimes with idiomatic translations, interestingly. Of course.

I'd have to choose among The Martian, Arrival and Guardians of the Galaxy, while looking forward to seeing First Man for the first time. Just to note, I'm not sure I understand why Arrival would be considered a "space movie". No part of it takes place outside of earth's atmosphere.

This time I'm not in time, so all the best is in the box ))
Still, the list lacks three titles for sure:
Serenity (2005)
Sunshine (2007) 
The Chronicles of Riddick (2004)

And to make it more amusing, FYC:
Futurama: The Beast with a Billion Backs (2008)
Interstella 5555 (2003)

Technically the year 2000 is not part of the 21st century.

Many people think the phrase Vote Early Vote Often started in Chicago during the gangster era of the 1920's - 1930's.
On a related note: The fact that the People's Choice Awards started out as a one person one vote opinion poll and turned into a Vote Early Vote Often internet ballot stuffing joke is probably why they went from CBS to E!.
I really liked today's poll as there have been a lot of very good space movies released since Jan. 1, 2000.
