I'm pretty sure 2001 is the only one of those movies that didn't have sound in space.

Granted I haven't seen them in a while but I remember the battle scenes being loud.

No, Serenity made a point of having no sound in space. And Star Trek just used music to heighten the tension of space battles.

I guess I will have to rewatch my Serenity HDDVD tonight.

I really remembered sound in the battles.

There is sound when they are being chased in the hover craft but that takes place on a planet.

Our lead (usually a scientist/expert/commando) is reunited with an estranged ex-signifigant other (spouse, boyfriend/girlfriend) and as the movie comes to a conclusion, they "find the magic" again:

1.)  Shallow Ground

If you are going to use sound in space as a cliche than you have to list out movies with scores as a cliche too

Speaking of sound/no sound in space - we might have to give JJ Abrams credit for inventing a new one....

During the first battle in Star Trek there's all sorts of sound when it comes to torpedoes flying, phasers and explosions. Then when Abrams wants to have a crew member sucked out into space, suddenly there's no sound.

The "In Space No One Can Hear You Scream" Ammendment: Sound for effects in space but people are silent.

Maybe they're confused by Younger Spock and Saavik doing the Pon Farr?  No...sorry.  That was 3.

I've got nothing then.

3.) Star Trek 4 (or 2)
4.) Jurrasic Park: The Lost World
5.) The Abyss

actually I was thinking Kirk and his ex wife/mother of his child.  Although I am sure that is one of many.
