    First Man (2018)

    So, this one is pretty big. Famous movie, famous events, a lot of responsibility there for the execution.
    Of course the usual site got a lot to say. Apparently, movie is based on the only official biography or Armstrong, and it does feel like it been given a lot of attention to detail. Of course, there are some things that are quite not true - the stuff left on the Moon being the biggest. But the events, the preparation, the political tension at the time, seems to be pretty close to life.
    From personal opinion - movie at times feels a bit like disaster movie. So much shit goes wrong, and it's not something I thought about before, when thinking about Moon landing before, but all the stuff that went wrong - actually went that wrong in real life too. Also there's quite a lot of drama within Armstrong's family, and correctness of that we won't ever really know, but that's obviously necessary details for a movie to have.
    All in all, strong dramatic movie pretty closely following strong dramatic real events.
