A good movie

I was never really attracted to this movie. It probably had to do with the title which I found, one hand, annoyingly patriotic and, on the other hand, just plain lame. But I kept saying this movie being recommended. It has been nominated for the best picture academy award, it is on the '1001 movies you must see before you die' and according Roger Ebert, it is even best movie from made in the 80's,... read more

25 From 83: My Favorite Films Of 1983 (25 movies items)

"Years ago, at a sci-fi convention in Kansas City, some friends & I not only got to meet Gordon Cooper (one of the astronauts portrayed in this film), but also got to have dinner with him & share a limo ride to the airport. So the way I figure it, on that whole six degrees of separation thing, that puts me only one degree away from outer space. "

Film Journal - May, 2014 (71 movies items)

"  Before there was Apollo 13, there was this film, which was about the early days of the US space program, back when the very idea was risky at best. The performances are really great, and so is the soundtrack."
