We were the only ones in the cinema. Until half way through the ads when three about 15 year olds walked in. The two females and one male kind of just chilled at the back, and about a quarter of the way through the movie turned on their phones and one of them their phone torch? Then half way through the film they all got up and left the cinema. And just didn’t come back?
Honestly I really don’t much to say about this film apart from that I absolutely loved it. Everything about it I loved. The acting, story, visuals, everything I loved.
It was so emotional too. And I wasn’t expecting that aspect of it to be so present constantly throughout the film but I loved its inclusion. I have seen quite a few critics say that where this movie falls is when it’s earthbound, but I easily emotionally connected to the characters and enjoyed these moments. The family, neighbourhood, training for space, just everything! I found all of it exciting, emotional and fascinating.
Being able to see more of conditions that they the astronauts are in, the training that they have to go through, the life threatening situation they are put in… How high stakes and higher pressure, yet utterly exhilarating, the whole thing is I just loved to watch.
The rivalry with the Soviet Union America has too is always funny to me.
I have nothing to say really apart from that I loved it.
