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

Review of Apollo 13

9 years, 9 months ago at Feb 24 6:33

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.

*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.
*William Broyles Jr... read more

Description: "Houston, we have a problem." Those words were immortalized during the tense days of the Apollo 13 lunar mission crisis in 1970, events recreated in this epic historical drama from Ron Howard. The film received an overwhelmingly enthusiastic critical response and a Best Picture nomination, but lost that Oscar to another (very different) historical epic, Mel Gibson's Braveheart. In 2002, the movie was released in IMAX theaters as Apollo 13: The IMAX Experience, with a pared-down running time of 116 minutes in order to meet the technical requirements of the large-screen format. Synopsis by Don Kaye ... (more)

No problems here

“'Apollo 13' had so much going for it, being based on an actual event that continues to move and inspire, Ron Howard showing evidence of some fine films and on paper a great cast. The great news is that with the promise that it had 'Apollo 13' delivers.For starters, it's a technical tour-De-force. It's beautifully photographed, the space setting is enough to leave one in awe and the special effects still hold up incredibly well today. The music score is provided by the now regrettably late (as of two years ago) James Horner. To me it contains some of his best work.It is a hauntingly beautiful score that gives a real sense of adventure, tension and mystery, "All Systems Go-The Launch" in particular, the opening trumpet theme and "Lunar Dreams" very close behind.There is a great script too, r” read more

Movies...Most Memorable Movie quotes (43 movies items)

"'Houston, we have a problem.'You're likely to hear this line from someone who is at the mercy of a situation that has gone hopelessly awry. Tom Hanks' character in 1995’s “Apollo 13,” real-life astronaut Jim Lovell, reports back to Earth with this news when he realizes his space mission has taken a turn for the worse."

"Apollo 13 was the seventh mission for NASA’s space program in which Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks), Jack Swigert (Kevin Bacon), and Fred Haise (Bill Paxton) attempted to land on the moon. However, the mission went haywire when the shuttle’s oxygen module failed two days after launching, so the team looped around the moon and returned back on Earth. Twenty-five years later, Ron Howard and the executives of Universal and Imagine Entertainment adapted the real-life events into a space drama called "Apo"
