    There are some absolutely stunning visuals in this; and the performances are very nuanced and beautifully realised. It does have quite an old fashioned pace and at times it can feel a bit slow so go in prepared for this (don’t see it late at night like I did).

    Overall a great biopic, which takes on the space race sub-genre in an interesting and unique way; highlighting more than just the awe of man stepping foot on the moon and capturing the cultural moment a lot more vividly than similar films have.

    ★★★½

    Gorgeous cinematography and an enduring score make this worth checking out. Though the plot is predictably silly and the tropes of the genre feel a bit played out when presented earnestly in 2018.

    Bad Times at the El Royale

    ★★★½

    Pretty fun, pulpy little film. Could’ve been greatly improved by a tighter edit; it feels a bit self indulgent and drags things out unnecessarily at times. I also felt some characters could’ve been used better or given a little more personality. Chris Hemsworth absolutely steals the show however.

    Generally quite entertaining but a little disappointing as well.
