I liked First Man too, except they kept pronouncing Gemini as Geminee instead of Gemin- eye. Only a very few early NASA people called it Geminee. By the time the press were reporting everything it was Gemin-eye. But every now and then, on a doco, I hear Geminee. Maybe the Southerners used Geminee, I dunno.

You know you are a NASA nut when you walk away from First Man thinking you knew more facts that they left out than you learnt .

Like the switch to start the rockets to take off from the moon broke, Buzz stuck his pen in the hole and it was just the right size to work,or else they'd still be up there.

Neil was the first man to WALK on the moon. Buzz was the first man to PEE on the moon hehe

If you didn't know better, you could be fooled into thinking Walk Hard was a proper doco

John C Reilly kills iit as Ollie Hardy in the new Stan and Ollie movie,with Steve Coogan playing Stan. The attention to detail was extraordinary,even having the exact same old film in the background of one of their sketch recreations. Looking forward to seeing this one.

Twelve Monkeys - 1992 Movie. Bruce Willis, Madeline Stowe, Brad Pitt.

Well written, great acting, unique cinematography, complex plot - one of Director Terry Gilliam’s finest works IMO (Monty Python, Brazil, Imaginarium of Dr Parnassus). Still one of my all-time favourite movies since it’s realise 27 years ago.

That film had a huge budget blowout.

Twelve Monkeys stuck to its $29.5 million budget, and made $168.8 million at the box office.
