This is one of my favorite movies, and this is my favorite edition.
If you are a fan of NASA and the Apollo program, this movie is a must-have for your DVD collection. Ron Howard does an excellent and respectful job of telling the story of the Apollo 13 flight and how NASA and the crew did the heroic and unthinkable to get the crew safely home.
Better yet, this 2-disc anniversary edition has excellent added special features and commentary that add substantially to the story. In particular, I would recommend you listen to Marilyn Lovell's commentary and look for Gene Krantz's touching interview. This will always be one of my favorite movies.Read full review...
Apollo 13 DVD
Based on the true story of the Apollo 13 mission, this is one of the truly best movies that I have ever seen. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards and Director Ron Howard showed another true knock out film. Actors Tom Hanks and Gary Sinise are at their true best. They bring out all of the emotions that I am sure were felt by the Apollo crew, the fear, the hope, and the devotion to each other. When things go wrong with the Apollo 13 moon landing, it goes from that to one of true survival. The crew in the ship and the crew on the ground trying desperately to get them home safely. Of course, historically we know how it turns out, but that doesn't take away from the emotion felt while watching this film. Truly one of the greatest!Read full review...
This is a classic movie about a true story. Three men go to the moon but never get there. There is an accident that leaves them not able to make it to the moon or even back home to Earth. So NASA intelligence has to get them home fast because they are lacking the oxygen they need. Watch this movie for a great thrill, for what would you do if you were trapped in an object in space and no way to get back home?Read full review...
This film is a must!
Outstanding! I have watched this movie twice and can't wait to watch it again. So well done! Bravo Ron Howard!!! Bravo Tom Hanks - what a versatile talent! If he were playing a 9 year old ballerina in toe shoes, I'd buy it. Now all you macho types out there - sorry - all firey explosions in this movie are strictly limited to the necessity of the story. No gratuitous sex or violence and - oh my goodness - you might even learn something. My kind of movie 100%
WATCH IT - WATCH IT - WATCH IT!!!!!Read full review...
One Word - Outstanding
The blow-by-blow account of mankind's third attempt to land a man on the moon, as told from the prespective of the mission commander himself.
The real-life characters of this event leap from the celluiod in a nonstop, action-packed, Hollywood blockbuster, and popularized the term, "Failure is Not an Option".
An easy read, and should be required viewing for every middle school student.Read full review...
