First Man Gives Viewers a Journey Through History

FirstManMovie

The true story about Astronaut Neil Armstrong. The man who overcame odds and the tragedies of his life to become the first man to ever step foot on the Moon.

First Man is rated PG-13 for some thematic content involving peril and brief strong language.

Rating: 8/10

What Worked:

Director Damien Chazelle practically hit on all cylinders with the release of the early fall hit, First Man. One thing apparent early on in the movie is the interesting cinematography Chazelle chose to depict not only intense space flight, but also the 60’s era. The film is primarily filmed by hand with a lot of shaky cam scenes. This fit the rugged nature of the movie. I also enjoyed the first-person camera angles throughout. When dealing with something as intense as flying in a rocket ship to the moon, this...

Incredibles 2 Proves Fun for Kids of All Ages!

Incredibles-2-review-2018

Picking up immediately after the events of the first film, we see the Incredibles promptly thrust into action to defeat the villain The Underminer. Although emerging victorious, we are quickly shown that not all of mankind has come around to the idea of “Supers” being needed in today’s society. Thankfully for us, there is a wealthy telecommunications mogul named Winston Deaver that is willing to give Supers a chance to prove the importance of defending mankind. The catch? Deaver is strictly interested in the services of Elastigirl, believing that Mr. Incredible’s means of heroics prove too loud and messy.
