Was it out of this world?

It's going to be another rainy weekend...so what better time to head to the movies to avoid it all?  Last night, I had a chance to check out the new Ryan Gosling film "First Man".

The movie tells the story of Neil Armstrong and his fellow NASA astronauts as they train and plan for man's first visit to the Moon.  It's a very informative story of how crazy and dangerous space travel was back then and how so many things had to go right in order to achieve the goal.  If you're going to see this film, try to go see it in IMAX-the flying sequences(and especially the actual visit to the Moon) are amazing on the big screen.  Gosling did a great job playing Armstrong-he wasn't exactly a charismatic figure despite being such an American hero.  The film really stuck to his real-life persona when it would have been easier to jazz up his character.  It was a good flick that will get attention come Oscar season, check it out!
