"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

Notes:
*I honestly haven't seen this until now.
*It's one of Bill Paxton's biggest films so in honor of him I decided to check it out finally.
*Of course the cast is excellent.
*Ron Howard directs this and the last film I saw of his was In the Heart of the Sea 2 years ago.
*I find it amusing that both of the book writers have cameos in this.

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)

"The real James Lovell: Tom Hanks played real-life astronaut James Lovell in the movie about the ill-fated trip to the moon. If you look closely at the captain of the vessel which rescues his character you can see it’s the real James Lovell."

" TITLE OF WRITTEN WORK: Lost Moon PUBLISHED FORMAT: non-fiction novel AUTHOR/CREATOR: Jim Lovell and Jeffrey Kluger ORIGINAL PUBLICATION YEAR: 1994 HAVE I READ: Yes NOTES: Lost Moon detailed the disastrous miracle that was the Apollo 13 mission. Fun fact: One of the most famous misquoted quotes of all time appears in this film. "Houston, we have a problem," is what we hear in the film, spoken by Tom Hanks (who portrays Jim Lovell). The actual words spoken by Jim Lovell himself were "Houston"

" LAST WATCHED: 3/11/2017             COMMENTS: Family movie night as we watch Apollo 13 in memoriam of Bill Paxton (we did Twister last weekend). Ron Howard brilliantly directed such intense suspense. Even after having seen it countless times, my heart still gets racing as the situation unfolds. This viewing was also the first time I ever managed to find Bryce Dallas Howard in her uncredited cameo.GRADESACTING: ASTORY/PLOT: ASOUNDTRACK: ASET/COSTUME DESIGN: AENTERTAINMENT: AFAV"

" 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"
