    The movie is great. That's a given. I felt the need to write this review to second the comment left by someone else. Despite what the Details says, the HD version is widescreen. Figured I'd buy it on sale and if it's fullscreen, I can just download it again when it finally goes wide, but the HD is widescreen, definitely. Don't know about the SD version. UPDATE: The HD version is definitely widescreen. (I'm not saying HD MEANS widescreen.) The iTunes Store on the Apple TV even says widescreen now, so if you have it downloaded and it's still fullscreen, delete the file and re-download. It was probably once fullscreen and they have since updated it. Or maybe it's a US thing. UPDATE: Well, my file is 1080p 1920x816, so I guess I must be more special than some folks.
  • One of the finest movies made, a timeless classic!

    Other than a few lines of dialogue that were invented for dramatic purpose, Apollo 13 is almost a verbatim transcript of the ill-fated flight’s history -- and the courage of the remarkable people that turned disaster into triumph. Excellent movie, and a cinematic tour-de-force! Technically correct in most regards and for the most part historically accurate, the movie has very few flaws and about the best special effects every done. Even the astronauts I know feel that it is an excellent movie.
  • Fullscreen????

    This is what I like to call: a 90's Masterpiece! The acting is phenomenal, the story is well told, and the visuals (especially for '95) were amazing! Even though I knew what happened in real life, I was still on the edge of my seat when I first saw this. This movie is an emotional experience you will not forget!
  • Outstanding!

    I've seen a lot of movies!...this is one of if not the best I've seen. Twenty years after it was made it's still one of my favorites....it has one of the most intense and moving scenes in movie history with the re entry...Ron Howard does it again!
  • Great movie with Great score

    This is my all time favorite Tom Hanks movie next to Forrest Gump and Castaway. But the score in this movie is also beyond measure. Wish Apple would release the soundtrack album on iTunes. James Horner's Apollo 13 would make an excellent addition to my collection of James Horner Albums.
  • Watch it!

    This is a good movie. I felt emotions. It's so amazing how they lived through all those trials, and how smart they were. I would rate it PG-13 though because of language and peril. Still watch it though! πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›
