I have wondered that as well. I don't remember reading of any of those theories before that movie.

How Apollo 11's crew reacted to lunar conspiracy theories.
"It would have been harder to fake it than to do it," astronaut Neil Armstrong once said.

It's basically a failure of imagination, an inability to process evidence, and a failure to understand what past generations were capable of.

What I can't understand is how anybody could look at the Egyptian pyramids and still have difficulty understanding that human beings in 1969 were capable of building a Moon-rocket and flying to the Moon.

You could write a million words on why Apollo really happened, on the evidence proving indisputably that 12 Americans walked on the Moon between 1969 - 1972, but I think what it boils down to is this: if you show these people the numerous Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter images of the Apollo landing sites (including the dark smudges that show Armstrong's trek to Little West crater) and they are reduced to arguing that LRO is all a fake, then there is nothing you could say to these people. They are beyond reasoning and beyond logic.
