Just seen First Man at the cinema. Normally hate science films, but the bewildering fact we sent a man to the moon with primitive technology is worth the watch alone. As Mrs Armstrong angrily tells Nasa you are just a bunch of kids playing with Balsa wood kits and haven't got a  clue what you are doing. Indeed Armstrong is a depressive consigned to his death along those lines after many of his mates have got killed in testing.

Couldn't do it now with all that health and safety, despite one giant leap in technology. Of course you can take the conspiracy view we never did bsck then with all that "Balsa Wood" technology. Well if we did, bloody incredible.

What would be even more amazing than landing a man on the moon in 1969 would be faking it.

The technology to fake that wasn't available. Could be argued that the tech for falsifying the landing was available and kept secret but it was many many years before such tech was known about.

Amusingly, I've come across no conspiracy theories that say the Apollo 13 mission was fake. Hmmm... we can get to the moon, go round the back of it and get home after a near fatal fuck up but no way did people land there with a fully functioning spacecraft the year before.

I had decided to give up on the Marvel movies for a while after Black Panther. But on a long plane ride recently I watched both Thor Ragnarok and Infinity War. Both good fun action movies, and well blended in genuine comedy throughout. A real return to form.

ant man is a good movie to watch with the kids tho, not much violence etc, decent enough.

Usually go to the Loewen at Mablethorpe when staying on the East coast, £4.20 with a free cup of tea and if there are half a dozen people in that's a good day. Typical of a rural economy with little government assistance or public sector jobs to splash the cash. Five quid a ticket and the place would be empty.

Watched Three Billboards recently, thought it was pretty good. There is one particularly shocking moment that I didn't see coming - doubtless anybody who has seen it will know what I am referring to!
