"Apollo 13" the First Time Around
19 October 2000 | by See all my reviews

When "Apollo 13" came out, I thought I was the only person in America who remembered this made-for-TV effort. As a space-crazy 13 year old, I recall watching and enjoying this film, and I'm surprised that no effort was made to bring it out on video or DVD so people could compare the two films. No doubt the production values of "Apollo 13" are far superior and the presence of a by-then burnt out Sandra Dee in the cast probably signals the film wasn't all that good. Still, I'd like to see it again.
