Spend your Space Movie Money on something better: From the Earth to the Moon.

J. Kb. said all that needed to be said regarding that piece of crap movie. I am going t guide you to dust your DVD player and buy the great mini series From the Earth to the Moon. (I don’t see it being offered in streaming service)

This is worth your binging time. Produce by Tom Hanks and yes, you can expect Band of Brothers and The Pacific quality in this miniseries.

Quoting from IMDB:

 The twelve episodes follow the Apollo space program from a variety of viewpoints: (1) “Can We Do This?” maps the origins of Apollo and its Mercury and Gemini roots; (2) “Apollo 1” tells of the tragic fire and the subsequent finger-pointing; (3) “We Have Cleared the Tower” portrays the intense preparation for Apollo 7; (4) “1968” puts Apollo 8 into its historical context against events of the era; (5) “Spider” shows the engineering POV through the design, building, and testing of the LEMs with Apollos 9 and 10, (6) “Mare Tranquilitatis” shows the deeper considerations behind the historic Apollo 11 lunar landing; (7) “That’s All There Is” portrays the camaraderie of the Apollo 12 crew; (8) “We Interrupt This Program” shows a by-now-indifferent media galvanized by the events of Apollo 13; (9) “For Miles and Miles” tells of Alan Shepherd’s return to the manned program with Apollo 14 after being grounded between Mercury and Gemini; (10) “Galileo Was Right” show the non-piloting demands on the Apollo 15 astronauts as they train in lunar field geology; (11) “The Original Wives Club” gives the female POV through the wives of the New Nine; and (12) “La Voyage Dans La Lune” brings things full circle by contrasting Georges Méliès’s vision and drive in creating his 1902 film with Apollo 17 and the Apollo program’s close.

Fuck Canada.

  1. If you can say Ryan Gosling represents Canada, then we can say Rosie O’Donnell represents America. But I would never be so rude as to say “Fuck America”.

  2. Give Gosling a break. He has no control over how his movie is edited, and he’s just defending his paycheck.
    Enough bad stuff is happening every day that you don’t need to go out of your way to get offended.
    And no, I’m not going to see this movie. I stayed up late to watch the real thing, and they planted a flag (unless the truthers are right). I’ll stick with what I saw in 1969, not what Hollywood shows me now.
