First Man Review – Cinemaholics Episode #86

first man

First Man has just landed in theaters, but not to a strong box office. The prestige picture from Oscar-favorite Damien Chazelle and starring Ryan Gosling and Claire Foy captures the stoic, yet daredevil life of Neil Armstrong from his early days as an X-15 pilot to becoming the first man to walk on the moon. On the latest Cinemaholics, we discuss the film’s contribution to the moon landing legacy and the craft behind turning that fateful Apollo 11 mission into something truly traumatic and realistic, perfect for IMAX.

Next week: We’re watching Halloween and The Hate U Give. Let us know which film you think we should feature review, or if we should do another Double Feature. Plus, let us know which new films or TV shows you want us to mini review in the comments below. You can also become a patron and vote your decision in our weekly Patreon poll.

Oddly, we all felt relatively satisfied with how things turned out in 2018 (minus one or two categories, but hey, we get into that). Afterward, we go back in time to talk about some films from the past that have won big awards, specifically winners we actually agree with for once.

We’d love to know what some of your favorite Oscar Winners are, and what you thought about this year’s ceremony, plus any topics and ideas you’d like us to discuss in the future!

‘La La Land’ Is Not Overrated Because You Hate It

La La Land, starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling and directed by Whiplash director Damien Chazelle, is a clear frontrunner for Best Picture at the Oscars this year, and it will likely win. Weirdly enough, a lot of people across the filmgoing spectrum aren’t very happy about that.

Review: 10 Cloverfield Lane Explores Clever New Ways to Build a Franchise

10 Cloverfield Lane is built on a premise that goes beyond itself: what if you could watch a sequel to a movie without knowing anything about it? The news of this semi-followup to the found-footage monster movie Cloverfield only dropped this past January. Scant and frankly uninformative marketing materials and trailers have
