"This presentation contains four vintage NASA films: The Flight of Apollo 11 - Eagle Has Landed, Apollo 13 - Houston We've Got A Problem, Apollo 15 - In The Mountains of the Moon and Apollo 16 - `Nothing So Hidden...'There is nothing remarkable to be found here. If you're interested in NASA films these four are good additions, at least from an historical point of view. The film quality is understandably fair to poor; nobody was concerned with Hollywood production values. And the content is rather boring. Even the film about the near-tragedy of Apollo 13 was downplayed in typical NASA propaganda style.Madacy Entertainment has once again proven their incompetence with this disk. They gave us bios of four astronauts, three of whom never flew an Apollo mission. A look at the Gemini capsule, and summaries of three Gemini missions not only has nothing to do with the subject matter of the disk, the print is so small that it is almost unreadable. There is a five-question trivia game that is a joke. And there is a short film clip of a JFK speech at Houston, TX. (This is not the famous, "I believe that this nation should commit itself..." speech given to congress.) As we are a little more than four minutes into the clip it abruptly ends, looking for all the world as if someone pushed the pause button on their VCR.Finally, the scene index gives you only eight choices for almost two hours' worth of program, none of these choices gets you to the beginning of any of the four films. And the disk itself would not give me any time or chapter information that would normally be found on a professionally produced DVD.Growing up with the excitement of the early space program, watching the live television coverage of man's first steps on the moon, I found this a nostalgic look back. But not much more. Unless you're looking to collect archival footage this yawner is not for you."
