Very interesting indeed!

What do you guys think is the best documentary about the Apollo 11 Mission? And the best movie?

"From the Earth to the Moon" is the most epic.

Movie/dramatisation about the whole Apollo program:  From the Earth to the Moon

Best Apollo 11 documentary I think is "Apollo 11" which I saw this week in Canberra.  Well worth the 2 hour drive up from the coast :)

It may be a comedy, and play a bit fast and loose with facts, but "The Dish" would have to be up there for one of the best movies about the Apollo 11 mission. If not the best, it was the most fun.  8)

I may be biased because it is an Aussie film  ;)

"From Earth to the Moon" is the best documentary I've seen. I'm still waiting for the latest Apollo 11 movies and documentaries to be released on a format I can buy or watch.

Whatever you do, don’t buy ‘First Man.’  I thought it was a real stinker, very boring, and didn’t end soon enough.  Although, I might be wrong.  It did get critical acclaim.

Neil Armstrong had more personally than First Man portrayed.

That one I will, probably, wait until it's on Netflix or Stan (if it's not already). Apollo 11 is a definite buy though

Saw Apollo 11 in the theater.  It was good (and the visuals were fantastic), but it fell kind of flat for me.  I’d hoped to be blown away.  8/10

Little 7 yo me was sitting in front of the TV exactly 50 years ago. I saw the landing before I went to school and watched the first moon walk at school (around lunch time)

I'm only one small step,  ;) (about 10 metres away), from the exact spot I was 50 years ago. I live next door to my childhood home  8)
