The Right Stuff

Tonight I convinced the sweetie that we should watch "The Right Stuff" that I'd acquired a few weeks ago (for $4 from a guy at work).  

I probably haven't seen this movie in twenty years, and my only memory of it was the rocket tests where they had a spate of failures and spectacular crashes, and the final shot of the top blowing off the top of one of them.  For some reason that shot amused us when we were younger :)

So tonight.. it was a little slow getting going (heck the whole movie is three hours long!) but it picked up and in the end I thoroughly enjoyed it!  I think Bill Conti's score made the movie.  Certainly made me want to go into space all over again.. maybe I'll just need to win a big lotto and go up in one of Richard Branson's planes...
