    • Apollo 13 blasts onto Blu-ray with a thunderous DTS:X soundtrack that's also more than capable of delivering nuanced sound elements. This is a movie that benefits from the added surround speakers and overhead...

    • "These guys are talking about bangs and shimmies up there. That doesn't sound like instrumentation to me." The Apollo 13: 20th Anniversary Blu-ray disc is included with this set. To read a terrific review...

    • Apollo 13 is a classic in my book, through and through. It's possibly Ron Howard's best film and one of the best films to come out of the 90s. It's a true story of adventure, survival, and human ingenuity....
