REVIEW:
A full cast of celebrity favorites and an experienced, wonderful director has all the makings of a fantastic movie right?! Right! Just not this time.
After the movie was over, I sat for the longest time just wondering what the heck. I just didn't get it. I get there was drugs, corruption, and lies... you know the usual... but whatever dots were supposed to connect just didn't and the whole thing became lost to me.
Definitely was not what I would call an "adrenaline-fueled thriller". My adrenaline didn't even flicker. No, this movie was just a big disappointment to me.

  2. Thanks. I saw this on Apple TV and we thought about watching it last weekend, but we chose something else. I think we'll skip this one.

REVIEW:
Such great animation!
There was always something going on in this movie. Even though it was a story I have seen played out a million times and a million different ways, they all are different too. This had more of a story. It was very magical and is definitely fun for the whole family.
Want to point out, Max, the dog, stole the show for me. He is so adorable, even if animation. Such a good dog.
This is one of those Christmas movies that you really can enjoy all year round. It has enough laughs, fun and morals to be played anytime. Plus there is nothing wrong with Christmas cheer in February.

REVIEW:
A superbly made movie!!
Seriously, the scenes were pretty phenomenal. It made for some pretty intense moments along the way. The space scenes were incredible. I loved how much real footage they used as well.
I thought I knew a lot about the moon landing of '69, though it was 8 years before my time. Even thought I knew a far amount about Neil Armstrong, but after watching this film, I realize I knew nothing at all. Had no idea he was up in the atmosphere so many times before the famous landing, but alas, he was. It really was a wonderful depiction of such an iconic event.
I also didn't know he had suffered such loss. It seemed …
