What Sci-Fi genre is this?

What do you call the sci fi genre that is "classic", like a 50's style. I can't really think of any good movies as examples except kid ones like Zathura and Meet the Robinsons.

Here are some pics :http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Meet_the_robinso...

I can't really think of any other examples. The genre i am thinking of has rockets instead of fancy spaceships, very opposite of of new, flashy sci-fi like Star Wars and Minority Report. Basically what i'm asking is, is there a term for this "classic" or "50's" genre?

    Wouldn't you just call it classic sci-fi?
