Still waiting on Wal-Mart to get it to me. I think they lost it. My Credit card company has already sent me the bill for it and I've paid them already and I still haven't seen it yet. I talked to customer service, they don't know, so I set here waiting for it and they finally send me an email to rate it. LOL, don't they know that I don't have it yet? Oh, I see were they want a photos of this product. Hmmmm, That's funny, how do you take a picture of something that you don't have?
One of the great real life dramas. Three astronauts are shot off on a "routine" flight to the moon, but an explosion in space makes it doubtful they'll ever return. The courage, dedication, and teamwork brought to bear to save their lives is both suspenseful and inspiring. Transfer quality (especially on the Blu-Ray version) is excellent, and director Ron Howard's moviemaking innovations (like filming some scenes in a truly "weightless" environment) add to the experience. It's on my personal list of the 100 best movies of all time. The disc also includes a load of worthwhile extras. Highly recommended.
My heart grew ten sizes the day I watched this. A long time favorite. Good message with the memorable narration of Boris Karloff. We bought this for my wife to use in her classroom to teach about giving and sharing. It is a bonus that it is one of our favorite shows as well.
As cumbersome and drawn out as a slowly deflating tire, this cinematic collision between Vaughn's celebrated funny-surly persona and Howard's earnest pedigree is a bore -- and a serious miscalculation.
