    First Man (Movie)

    Has anyone else been to see First Man in the cinema yet?

    It has some historically accurate
    looking vintage watches within. I spotted Gosling (Armstrong) wearing a lovely Seamaster and obviously his Speedy. Ed White makes an appearance too!

    I read somewhere that Omega supplies the watches for the movie and that they’re all original “real” ones.

    Nice!

    Saw it last night. Spotted the Seamaster in the early scenes. Speedy appears later obviously. Amazing film, watch it at an Empire Impact screen if you can. Great article in GQ with Gosling and Chazelle too online.

    Seeing it later today. I'm liking the Speedmaster TV adverts also promoting the film.

    I've seen it. It's not like the trailer. It's slow, sombre almost to the point of being depressing and tries to capture the struggle of going into space and the fear.

    Go see it if you really like NASA and space history, but if you take the family they'll be bored. It has sparse dialogue and it's not a hero film in any conventional sense.

    It's also strangely grainy and seems to have been filmed to look like it was made in the '60s including occassional shots out of focus and vintage colour processing, this could turn off some modern viewers expecting everything to be in sharp focus with vibrant colours.

    I liked it, but it's not for everyone. It's not at all like Apollo 13 and sometimes feels more like 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    Agreed. And it’s all the better for it.
