Houston, we have a problem.
The true story of technical troubles that scuttle the Apollo 13 lunar mission in 1971, risking the lives of astronaut Jim Lovell and his crew, with the failed journey turning into a thrilling saga of heroism. Drifting more than 200,000 miles from Earth, the astronauts work furiously with the ground crew to avert tragedy.

Hadn't seen this movie since I was little and I had forgotten how good it was. After learning about the actual mission it's amazing how faithful the film is to the real events. There was a little too much of Hollywood Drama (TM), but it was great to see a movie were people are just competent professionals that do their best and work their butts off to solve a difficult problem in creative ways. I feel that The Martian is a good modem example.
A worthwhile classic.

I think Tom Hanks ought to be seriously considered as one of (if not the) greatest actors of his generation. Just unbelievable.
