I changed the question as follows:
Which movie, documentary or tv series episode about one of the Apollo Space Missions is your favorite?
This broadens the scope of the poll to also include movies such as Damien Chazelle's First Man (2018).

Wikipedia:
"Houston, we have a problem" is a popular but erroneous quotation from the radio communications between the Apollo 13 astronaut John Swigert and the NASA Mission Control Center during the Apollo 13 spaceflight, as the astronauts communicated their discovery of the explosion that crippled their spacecraft.
"Houston, we have a problem."  in the description sounds as if all Apollo missions had explosions or other PROBLEMs.

And I suggest another variant for the question:
Which of the Apollos is your favorite on-screen mission?

Good idea, MAthePA, thanks! I changed the question accordingly. I also clarified the "Houston, we have a problem" quote in the description.

leavey-2,

My vote:
Apollo 13 (I) (1995)

It's hard for me to believe that it's been almost 50 years since I saw televised images of Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin walk on the Moon on July 20, 1969.

I've just seen Damien Chazelle's First Man (2018) and it's just unbelievable what they accomplished with the technological means available in those days. In fact, all the computer systems combined inside Apollo 11 contain less memory than one basic cell phone today.

Added plot summary for each of the options to better distinguish the various Apollo missions.
