The only 'based on a true story' movie that I can think of that was really good is Apollo 13. Got any others in mind? I supposed there's plenty of sports ones, but I find those are generally pretty formulaic, if not bad entertainment.

I just watched an Apollo 13 documentary the other day titled Houston, We've Had a Problem ( 2005). It reminded me of what a great job Ron Howard did of recreating these events. :cheergirl:

Yeah, it's not often that you get a "based on a true story" movie that's any good or the least bit close to what really happened. Usually "based on a true story" ends up meaning "we took the name of a real person that had something real happen to them and made up a mostly fake story about them."
