Breathtaking drama.

"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

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

Good Job

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.

Great story. Well acted.

"Girl in Yellow Dress"

A good movie

“I'm so glad I finally took the time to re-watch this flick. Indeed, if I recall correctly, I have seen it in the theater when it was released but never re-watched it since then. Anyway, this flick has definitely created some rather polarizing reactions. Indeed, some think it is a nail-biting historical thriller whereas some others think it was nothing really mind-blowing. To be honest, I first belonged to the second group. I mean, I admired the work behind, the attention to the details and the strong cast but I seriously had a hard time to care about the story. It is always the risk when you already know the outcome of a thriller as much of the excitement is then gone. The fans would argue that this movie is all about the built-up but, frankly, sometimes I had the feeling I was watching a ” read more

“Aplollo 13 is a disaster movie which no one would like to see themselfs in, the movie is a good take on events that happen on the mission which the movie is based, everything that could go wrong did go wrong on their spacecraft. The movie focas on the drama between the men, and what they felt and how they delt with the situation.” 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 this can fail. Films like Apollo 13 shows us how it can work.

Three astronauts, named Jim Lovell, Jack Swigert, and Fred Haise, find themselves in a dangerous predicament when after blasting off into space, begin having extreme rocket malfunctions. Problem after problem occurs, and things are seeming really, really bleak. With just about everything going wrong, it's a frantic survival tale,” read more

“A real-life drama that follows the lives of three astronauts on their attempt to touch the moon. It will have you on your seat along with the many american's who watched in happen in April 1970.” read more

Interesting film facts (389 movies items)

"The cast and crew flew between 500 and 600 parabolic arcs in NASA's KC-135 airplane (nicknamed the "Vomit Comet") to achieve real weightlessness. Each of the arcs got them 23 seconds of zero gravity. All of these flights were completed in 13 days. The actual KC135 used (NASA serial number N930NA) was decommissioned in 2000 after 27 years of service and is on display at Ellington Field. Ron Howard claims that, after seeing the film, Buzz Aldrin asked him if NASA could use the footage of the lau"

"I had always been fascinated by space and our solar system as a kid, so just imagine how psyched I was to watch one of NASA's most (in)famous missions play out. Now that I've grown older, there's so much more that I have come to appreciate about this movie. From it's stellar cast, to what went into recreating the conditions of the mission, right down to the cinematography, it's one of those rare movies that I liked from the start and it just keeps getting better every time I watch it."

Dependable in an Average Way

“After re-writing my review of "Appaloosa" to include a lengthy philosophical-- which is what classification is, IMO-- discussion of what tags the movie should get, (I eventually settled for historical: drama), I decided to write reviews for all of the movies of Ed Harris which I've seen, which is actually only three-- Appaloosa, A History of Violence, and Apollo 13. Although "Apollo 13" is actually more of a Tom Hanks movie, and, unlike the other two, does not include Viggo Mortensen, thus not opening me up to allegations of Peter Jackson fanboy status.

Although, speaking of being a fanboy, I remember that they showed this to us in school, either in middle school or early high school, I'm sure-- back when the name "Danielle" was imbued with a special meaning for me.... And she w” read more
