Yep, I'll second "The Dish", fabulously funny film with a bit of serious science mixed in!

"The Right Stuff" is a great pre-history - over 3hrs long but worth every minute - oops, just saw that you have that one.

"Event Horizon" is a good bit of Sci-Fi Horror akin to the Alien films only a bit closer to home, and of course it has Joely Richardson in it so can't go far wrong :-)

There is a a TV movie "Apollo 11" which is worth a watch, and a "Challenger" reconstruction which is worth a watch but is of course made with the benefit of hindsight.

"Deep Impact" and "Armageddon" of course :-)

If you are into Apollo type stuff then The Dish is highly reccomended,
as would be In the Shadow of the Moon.

Hi Tony,
One DVD set you could get over the internet is "Earth to the Moon".
Its not a film but a 5 DVD 12 episode series based in the Apollo era, its not a documentary but in my opinion it is essential viewing for anyone remotely interested in Apollo. Gets a 5 stars rating from me !


"Event Horizon" is a good bit of Sci-Fi Horror akin to the Alien films only a bit closer to home, and of course it has Joely Richardson in it so can't go far wrong :-)

I came out of the cinema after that one asking what the hell was that about ??? :lol:

Oh yes Dave, the Tom Hanks set - Jude got that from Canada for me - fortunately I have an all region player and a TV that doesn't mind being fed with NTSC. Great series except for one small detail - like most Apollo histories it goes straight from Apollo 1 to Apollo 7 - I've always thought Apollo 4 with its all-up testing strategy was an interesting mission - also it was the first Saturn V launch and the commentators really were overwhelmed by the experience.

Can't find any ratings for that DVD. I wonder how good it is. I have seen a similar documentary about Saturn V programmes before, but apart from some historic and never-seen-before footage, it was pretty boring.
