9. Apollo 11
In the past decade, there’s been an infinite amount of movies going to space. Whether it’s something that’s trying to play into our humanity like First Man or it’s something epic like Star Wars, it’s an area we continue to be fascinated with. None of those movies, however, have presented the journey one takes to get to space more realistically than Apollo 11. With footage that takes us on the ground floor of mission control during the Apollo 11 space launch, this documentary is so tense and well put together that it might just make you forget you know the outcome of the event while you’re watching it.
