Armstrong

Nothing Really New Here

(Edit) 17/12/2019

Moderately interesting but there was little here that hadn't been covered in the two BBC documentaries on Armstrong - Christopher Riley's "Neil Armstrong - First Man on the Moon" and Andrew Smith's "Being Neil Armstrong".

For me, the most revealing contributions were Chris Kraft's observations on Buzz Aldrin. “I didn’t dislike Aldrin. Didn’t like him either."

Zero Dark Thirty

Turgid

(Edit) 08/12/2014

The subject matter is ostensibly interesting but the film itself is boring and hugely overrated.

The main character is completely one-dimensional - after nearly 3 hours I knew nothing about her except that she worked for the CIA.

Parkland

Fascinating

(Edit) 21/07/2014

Highly recommend this to anyone who is interested in the historical aspect of the Kennedy assassination (rather than the conspiracy theory aspect). The film itself doesn't deal with Oswald's guilt or innocence but simply recreates the accepted sequence of events during those four days, i.e. the assassination, Oswald's subsequent arrest and murder, and the actions of the doctors, nurses and law enforcement agents in Dallas.
