Apollo 18, Or How I Stopped Worrying And Learned To Want Mah Money Back From The Theater

Gus Grissom's facial expression above sums up my reaction to the newly-released Apollo 18 movie. 1959 photo from Life magazine.

Yes, I did pay $10 to see the hot mess summer blockbuster smash Apollo 18.

If you love NASA, the Apollo program, and tastefully executed projects in general, I recommend that you should probably stay away from this movie. My extended review is coming up soon in Popshifter.

As a palate cleanser, I had to watch this vintage footage tonight, and just admire it for the gorgeousness it was. Ahhhh, nighttime Apollo launch, sans craziness.
