"Houston, we have a problem."

The sci-fi genre has resulted in the release of several absurd space films. You can forget about Hollywood blockbusters like Armageddon, Pitch Black, Deep Impact, Lost in Space, Mission to Mars and several others. Not since Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey has there been a real space movie that captures the wonder of space; that captures how mesm... read more

Review of Apollo 13

A downfall to creating a film based off of well known true events is that the conclusion is spoiled, therefore, leaving little in the conclusion that is unexpected. Therefore, these kinds of films tend to rely more on the journey to provide the emotional umph, then the actual conclusion. When the film is made to be suspenseful, this doesn't always work so well. Films like Valkyrie shows us how thi... read more

I thought that Ron Howard did a great job portraying a truly scary few days in space. At the same time, he showed all the creative thinking and hard work that had to be done back in Houston to bring these men back alive.

Description: Apollo 13 vividly chronicles the most dramatic space flight in history, which took place in April of 1970. After three days in space, Apollo astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise, and Jack Swigert finally approach their long-cherished destination, when suddenly their spacecraft's power and guidance systems go down—and the supply of oxygen begins to dwindle. The trio now faces a grim reality: their crippled capsule, stranded 205,000 miles in space, might never return to earth. With time running out, the crew and thousands of others, including flight director Gene Kranz, brave near-impossible odds in a daring attempt to guide the ... (more)

30 From 95: My Favorite Films From 1995 (30 movies items)

" A detailed depiction of that fateful day when Houston realized that it had a problem. A big problem. Ron Howard once again teams with Tom Hanks (who also celebrates a second pair up with Gary Sinese), this time in an outer space drama depicting the circumstances that led to the most famous aborted lunar mission in NASA's history. An event that had the potential to be, at that point, the worst disaster the U.S. space program had ever faced. But in the end, turned out instead to be, in the wo"
