Ron Howard's favorite scenes are out of this world -- well, at least one of them is.
The director and Moviefone Guest Editor explained that what makes a scene memorable (and pride-worthy) is more about what's felt than seen.
"The launch sequence in 'Apollo 13' is something that, as a director, I'm so proud of, because it involves important acting moments, real emotion from a lot of different characters; it's suspenseful." he said. "From a directorial standpoint, it involves special effects, emotion, editing, music, and finally this weightlessness that we created by flying parabolas out over the Gulf of Mexico, which no one had ever done before [for a film]."
