Movie Primer: Inception

Before I start, I just want to mention that I am a huge Christopher Nolan fan. I have dissected each of his movies and analyzed them in excruciating detail (I am one of those guys that read The Science of Interstellar by Kip Thorne). I love every single one of his movies, with Interstellar being…

First Man Review

I went to watch First Man, assuming that it is the story of the moon landing feat achieved by humans in 1969. It was not. It was the story of one man. His name is Neil Armstrong. The First Man. The Good: Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle takes you into the mind of Neil Armstrong. Literally.…
