Saw it over the weekend and agree with both of the comments above. Also, while the actual planting of the flag wasn't depicted, the planted flag itself was shown.

Looks like First Man has pulled in less than 45 million at the box office.

Maybe directors and actors shouldn't be making political statements before a movie is released.

Looks like they hope for increased buzz from the Golden Globes.

Well - they need to make a REAL political movie about these astro-naughts


...a movie that addresses the raw disregard for warming trends caused by the evil patriarchy. A movie aimed at all of the evil deniers and space profiteers
https://www.livescience.com/62805-mo...stronauts.html


I'm just curious though - if the moon landing was a hoax, how did the astro-naughts cause the moon-climate to warm up?


Regardless of the truth - I am so fucking selectively outraged right now that I can barely enjoy my five dollar cup of Starbucks coffee in a cup made out of paper with an indeterminate color scheme.



I'm going to go boycott something

I recommend broccoli. I've been boycotting it for decades. At least one former POTUS agreed.

I think you're confusing broccoli with brussel sprouts...

Broccoli is a human invention. It was bred out of the wild cabbage plant, Brassica oleracea .

That's an abomination. I like cabbage. I really like corned beef and cabbage. Using cabbage to produce broccoli is like using elves to produce orcs.

Just finished watching this. Standard pilot critiques but it nailed all the important shit as far as I'm concerned. Getting bent about the flag misses the point IMO.

Powerful. Made my palms sweat a couple times



Also: Chuck Yeager on twitter, that shit is funny.

I am half way through it right now. So far I would say Apollo 13 is a way better movie.

The scene from 1967 was gut wrenching though.

I was hoping, so far they have not, they would show some of Neil's past - like his time at Purdue and his combat tour in Korea - in the movie. Give more history of the man.

Disagree on the first part but now I'm going to have to watch it again to be sure.

Took me a couple times to get all the way through the Apollo 1 scene.

Apollo 13 and The Right Stuff set the standard.

Tom Hanks HBO mini series was pretty good also.

I liked The Astranauts Wife's Club as well - to see a background.

Apollo 13 is one of my top 5 favorite films, will watch again and again.

Have not seen it yet, hope to relatively soon.

We have Apollo 13 on blue-ray, we watch it every other month or so. My family loves it.

The Right Stuff was an excellent movie, better book. It really does a deep dive into the psyche and mindset of pilots and astronauts.

Tom Hanks' "To the Moon" on HBO I saw the first time around, I'd like to see it again.

Ok finished it. Overall I would give it 2.5 stars out of 5.

Was ok. But not stellar like Apollo 13 or The Right Stuff.

Was a bit dissapointed. Think they could have made the movie much better. Thought it was going to be a better movie - deserving of the man.
