Not my own work, but worth a look. The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has recently successfully put a research spacecraft in orbit around Mars, and my favourite space news blog Universe Today, has come up with this angle on the mission. Who would believe ISRO have achieved this difficult feat for less than it takes to make a movie on a similar subject?
Refer at the site, where they compare various movies' cost with the mission by ISRO:
