First Man

The second film on the plane was this one about Neil Armstrong, and it was also another brillo film.

It told the story of how Neil got into the space program, his training and testing programs, and of course the trip to the moon. It also looked at his home life, or as the film would have you believe, his lack of interest in family life and his obsession of doing spacey things.

The direction was superb, and the acting just as good, although Ryan Gosling just had to look po-faced and serious all the time. The moon landing sequence was great.

As with Bohemian Rhapsody I can’t really fault this one, but it is not quite as gripping. Still, it is a very worthwhile watch.
