A snippet of my #MovieReview of #FirstMan : "History’s youngest #BestDirector#OscarWinner managed to accomplish the impossible: turning an important figure into a passive plot device with #BellaSwan level personality.
The technical elements instead steal the focus, diminishing #NeilArmstrong with unnecessary focused shots on a fly and a control panel’s Chinese takeout food that add no story significance. This emotional distance may be for the best though, as the story built around Neil features plenty unrealistic additions, most groanworthy being what he does with his dead daughter’s bracelet. Even #Interstellar might mock its ridiculousness! Riding off that other #2001ASpaceOdyssey wannabee, important details are disregarded, including international contribution to #NASA , allowing key milestones to merely happen to each character, particularly Neil’s wife, Janet, who’s worse written than any pre-Force Awakens #StarWars female. At least those ugly #StarWarsPrequels had actual image contrast, unlike the bad color grading of this movie, which gives an ugly texture put together by someone who let success override his head.
However, from the #Gemini5 ’s radio that rattles your ears to the documentary-esque camera cropped closer than usual, Neil’s nauseous #claustrophobia becomes instantly comprehensible. Then after the sounds of the ship boom out of control, complete space silence takes #StanleyKubrick ’s 1968 classic to heart. It forces prolonged depth into infinity’s empty black void beyond Earth’s blue aura; then this #Kubrickian style turns simultaneously epic on the ground with a heavy landing on the #MojaveDesert , an intro that would make #StevenSpielberg proud. Also, when they reach the moon’s surface, despite the controversy, a #USFlag does show up! It’s just not seen being planted in! Thus, you can stop getting mad about it.
You can get mad instead at the way #RyanGosling plays Neil Armstrong without any believability. Ryan acts the same as he did in #BladeRunner2049 , just staring with eyes half-open as if confused about how to play the role properly." #Oscars#Oscars2019#Cinephile#Instafilm#DamienChazelle

The last three years I have dedicated a long distance run and the carrying of the US flag 🇺🇸 to our veterans on Veterans Day. I have ran around 16-22 miles each year to remind our community and those around how privileged we are to have our sons, daughters, mothers and fathers serve our country. On Nov 10th I will be gearing ⚙️ up to run again. Not sure how long I will be running, definitely looking at 16+. I hope we all take the opportunity to remember those who are serving our country as well as all those who served. To my brothers and sisters Semper Fi.
Do you focus on things that unite us or divide us? Are you a glass 1/2 full or 1/2 empty? When you see a flag do you see united or divided? It’s how you perceive the world through your lens.
