Lost in Space (1965) (TV Series)
While talking to Arthur, Jim says he is lost in space.
2001: A Space Odyssey (1968)
Some of the ship's designs pay tribute to this movie.
Silent Running (1972)
At the end there is a large amount of greenery growing on the spaceship, which is being tended by robots.
The Shining (1980)
Aurora banging the bridge door with a hammer. Besides, the bar room is inspired by the bar room from "The Shining". In both films, the bartenders are dressed in red tuxedos, carry themselves in a sophisticated manner, have a strange friendship with the lead male, are not concerned with payment and are unable to leave. In addition, the primary light source in the bar and lounge shines from below rather than above. Finally, a variation on the iconic orange and red carpet design from Overlook Hotel hallways can be seen in the seating area
Aladdin (1992)
Jim takes Aurora out for a space walk and she asks if it's safe. Outside the ship, Jim asks her if she trusts him. This is an homage to when Aladdin takes Jasmine on a magic carpet ride. Jasmine also asks if it's safe. The accompanying music also is similar to 'A Whole New World'.
Titanic (1997)
The "You die, I die" line is a reference to Titanic's "You jump, I jump". The Avalon also collides with an asteroid at the beginning of the film like the Titanic hits an iceberg.
Titan A.E. (2000)
main character is a mechanic from Colorado; new Earth-like planet
WALL·E (2008)
The Avalon is similar in many ways to the Axiom in Wall-E. The ships are designed to house and provide life support to thousands of humans and the interiors are also very similar. Both ships also have 'service bots'.
Her (2013)
Some spaceship interiors design pays a tribute to the blind date scene restaurant scene interior design in Her
