It actually looks like it could be quite good if it can stay away from all the overdone cliches that plague these types of film.

Title could have been better though, makes it seem like an Apollo 13 sequel.

John Lee, conspiracy therapist at Hollywood award-winner History Channel-mocked SNL-spoofed PirateNew.org wooHOO!!!!!!


This is why Amurkins and Hollywud R so stoopid...there really was an Apollo 18, where the Pentagon Industrial Complex came out of the closet on July 19, 1975, by admitting it teamed up with Commie Russia for the fake "moon" race.

Quote:



Apollo 18 and Soyuz 19 Launched: July 15, 1975
Meeting in Space: July 17, 1975
Soyuz 19 Landed: July 21, 1975
Apollo 18 Splashed Down: July 24, 1975
Duration:

Apollo 18: 217 hours, 30 minutes
Soyuz 19: 143 hours, 31 minutes
Orbits: (Apollo 18) 136; (Soyuz 19) 96

Astronaut Crew:
Thomas P. Stafford
Vance D. Brand
Donald K. "Deke" Slayton

Cosmonaut Crew:
Alexei Leonov
Valeri Kubasov

This, the final flight of the Apollo spacecraft, was the first docking of spacecraft built by different nations and presaged the era of cooperation between the Russians and the Americans that is now such an essential part of our efforts to build a permanently occupied space station.

The American crew included three-flight veteran Thomas P. Stafford, rookie Vance Brand, and the last of the original seven Mercury astronauts to make it into orbit, Donald K. "Deke" Slayton, whose heart murmur had previously kept him grounded. The Soviet crew included the first space walker, Alexei Leonov, and rookie Valeri Kubasov.

While this mission is generally remembered as a political/public relations venture, it resulted in some major technological advancements necessitated by the requirement to dock the two extremely variant spacecraft, neither of which had been built for the purpose, together.

The two spacecraft were launched within seven and a half hours of one another, and, three hours after they docked two days later, the Astronauts and Cosmonauts met in the middle ahd shook hands in orbit, exchanged flags and gifts (including the seeds of trees that were later planted in each others' countries) and conversed haltingly with one another in each other's native tongues.

It would be six long years before another American astronaut would fly in space, this time aboard the reusable Space Shuttle. The Apollo era, an era of the greatest achievements in mankind's history, had ended.

Apollo 13 II, the Blair Witch mission. Whozit is right of course, however crudely put, this film has been done: it's a remake of Alien, and I see nothing here that makes me think that it will live up to the original.


That's what a ship is, you know - it's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs.
