Are Kid's IQ's Dropping In The World Today?
Why do I keep seeing SO MANY posts about ...how racist, or how sexist, or how boring, or how Mediocre cheesy... this movie is?
This movie is a Period Piece. It is based on the true story of the REAL Apollo 13 mission that occurred in 1970.
THIS MOVIE IS NOT FICTION!
While it is true... that the producers, the writers, and director... Combined some characters into one, or shortened the timeline of events, So that the movie wouldn't run for MORE than 2 Hours and 20 minutes... EVERYTHING that we saw in the FILM, actually occurred in 1970 in someway or another.
- Blacks were not on the Apollo 13 Crew in 1970. So there are no blacks being depicted that way in the movie.
- Women were not on the Apollo 13 Crew in 1970. So there are no women being depicted that way in the movie.
- The Apollo 13 Crew were in REAL danger of dying. And everyone worked their butt off and worked together to bring them home...ALIVE. Life and Death should not be thought of as "BORING".
- No one should ever think of this movie is as "Mediocre cheesy" because everyone worked very hard to depict every character, every event, and every piece of technology as it really was back in 1970. Even the REAL ASTRONAUTS that visited the set, were amazed as to how accurate the Apollo 13 Capsule/Lunar Model sets were. These sets were even mounted inside real aircraft flying through the air to simulate weightlessness by climbing and then diving to achieve ZERO gravity. How many other movies can make that claim?
In a world that is connected by the internet, where real research can be conducted with a simple Google search in just a few seconds, and many databases can be accessed to view genuine historical documents... WHY are so many youngsters getting dumber and dumber? and What is going on in the history classes at schools today, that can't teach these kids what really happened back in the day?
How are these kids graduating High School?
God help us all, if one of these dumbos, ever gets elected as President Of The United States... or becomes a leader anywhere else in the world...
