Dang this was a good picture. I can't get James Horner's heroic sound score out of my mind either. I'll probably have to buy the soundtrack!

Tom Hanks, Gary Sinise, Kevin Bacon, Bill Paxton, Ed Harris - quite a lot of talent launched this ship.

Each time I watch it I expect myself to be bored. It's a drama, not a space-war flick. However, I sit there really gripped by the true story. What an adventure!

I wasn't even born then, but I would have been totally riveted to the television set holding my breath for those guys to get back to earth OK. It's one of the pioneer moments of the space program.

I love it when Jim Lovell's mother asks Niel Armstrong if he's in the space program like her boy!
