Was it the Door?

I need help. I was writing the blurb for movie number 87 (see below) and I want to know about a guy in the movie. Please read the Why I Like It section below and help me out. 1382417324 cool points to the person who can provide me with information leading to our marriage. It's driving me nuts, now. It's all I can think about.

I think I'm getting sick. I played volleyball last night and was so hot and sweaty afterward that I drove home in 35 degree rainy weather with the windows down. Now I feel a little sick.

I have an interview today for an on-campus job for next school year. I'm so glad I feel sick for it!

Hopefully, after this weekend, I'll upload pictures from the MORBID JOKE (cousin's weekend) and my birthday (which is Sunday.)

87. Apollo 13

What It Is:
Tom Hanks, Ed Harris, Gary Sinese, Kevin Bacon, Clint Howard, and the guy from Twister. The all work for NASA and fly a space ship to outer space. Then things go horribly, horribly wrong. Based on the real life story of the doomed Apollo 13 flight directed by Ron Howard.

Why I Like It:
Did you see the list of cast? Can you say HEAVEN! Also, anyone know who plays the dorky guy who comes up with ideas in the panic room with Ed Harris and then helps Gary Sinese get the amps down? He looks a little John Cusak-esque? He's dorky hot. I would marry him. Anyone know him? IMDB didn't help me and I couldn't even find a picture of him on google. It's like he doesn't exist.

I Bet You Didn't Know:
On my 8th grade field trip to DC, we went to the Smithsonian National Air and Space something or other. The tour guide told us that he spoke to the Apollo 13 astronauts about the movie and the only thing they said was inaccurate was the dialogue in space. Apparently, there was a lot more cursing when things started breaking.

Ron Howard claims this is his favorite of his movies. I bet this is before A Beautiful Mind, because Russell Crowe probably changed his mind.

Memorable Moments:
The last like 30 minutes of the movie are AWESOME!

Marilyn: Blanche, Blanche, these nice young men are going to watch the television with you. This is Neil Armstrong, and this is Buzz... Aldrin.
Neil Armstrong: Hi.
Blanche: Are you boys in the space program, too?


  1. I think the guy you liked is John Aaron, played by Loren Dean.

  2. AWESOME! I'm super impressed with either your superior google skills or superior movie knowledge! Thanks for the help.

    Oh, and are you someone I know or a fellow blogger? Either way, thanks for commenting and putting my mind at ease!
