Favorite Space Opera Movie

According to Wikipedia:

Space opera is a subgenre of science fiction that emphasizes space warfare, melodramatic adventure, interplanetary battles, chivalric romance, and risk-taking. Set mainly or entirely in outer space, it usually involves conflict between opponents possessing advanced abilities, futuristic weapons, and other sophisticated technology.

Alien

Star Wars might have been improved if they actually sang opera.

My personal favorite is the underrated Dune (1984).

I added Starship TroopersSerenityGuardians of the Galaxy.

I'm gonna wait to add Galaxy Quest, that doesn't mean that I totally reject it, but it is a spoof of Star Trek, and I want to prioritize original movies.

Maybe Prometheus?

I don't know, if you would count Prometheus to the Alien-Franchise. ;)

I added Avatar and Starship Troopers.

I never had the impression that Independence Day was a space opera, almost all the story happens on earth.

Prometheus is part of the Alien Saga since Alien: Covenant.

Are you including animations?

In that case Titan A.E. and Cowboy Bebop fit the parameters.

Also The Last Starfighter
