Apollo 11

The documentary does not suck. There is a shitload of footage that I had never seen, including the liftoff. Lots of shots of flight control.

It's hard to fathom, sometimes, that barely fifty years after the end of World War I, in which all of the airplanes were pretty much all fixed-gear fabric-covered, open-cockpit craft, men were on the Moon.

Highly recommended. It must be stunning in IMAX.
