Timeless Cinematic Moments 16

0 comments | 10:00 am | top |

Toms Hanks stars in Ron Howard's Apollo 13 (1995). Packed with nail-biting suspense and significant character development, the movie pulled in two Academy Awards. Alongside a stellar cast is the adept Ed Harris who I must say again, looks very much like an older version of Viggo Mortenson. In this scene, hope is all but lost at the Apollo 13 mission base and it appears as if the capsule must have burnt up in entering the earth's atmosphere. "Oddessy, Houston, do you read me?" The radio crackles and Jim Lovell (Tom Hanks) replies, "hello Houston this is oddyssey, it's good to see ya again". The screen at the base displays the capsule floating down towards the waiting aircraft carrier... and you can breathe again.
