Apollo 13

Dir: Ron Howard, 1995 (8.6*)
This is about as suspenseful and harrowing as any true film on the U.S. space program could be. True story of the Apollo mission that was to land on the moon, but which developed an oxygen leak, making the safe return of the astronauts the top priority. We watch in what feels like real time as the engineers on the ground at NASA, led by Ed Harris as mission chief, and the astronauts inside the capsule (Tom Hanks, Bill Paxton, Gary Sinese) solve one problem after another with creative ingenuity. A real nail biter with an excellent cast.

About This Blog

This is our new template: ProBlogger.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
