Apollo | Chicago Tribune Kidnews
I saw Apollo 13 only because it was one of those summers when I was living in a place with no real air-conditioning, so you either retreat to the theater under the guise of seeing ANYTHING or suffer sweatingly at home.
At said theater there was a note on the ticket window to the effect of, Air-conditioning is malfunctioning, it IS working, but it’s at the absolute lowest setting and VERY cold. I believe this deep chill of space made me enjoy the movie more. In a similar way that seeing some Star Trek movie at night on a turbulent airplane flight with scenes of space ships blowing up in a starry dark sky, made me enjoy that movie much less.
Things that will probably never be debated at The United Nations #493: Would Apollo 13 have been better if Clint Howard was the lead instead of Tom Hanks?
