Accordion to research, 9 out of 10 people don't notice when you replace words with the names of random musical instruments.

Other spudies suggest that most people don't notice potato puns either.

This movie came to Netflix in September 2020.

I watched Ryan Gosling play the part of Neil Armstrong. I think he does a great job of playing the steely eyed missile man. The movie opens with some high drama - quite literally - as Armstrong uses all his wits to control a high altitude test flight.

Gosling portrays a man who contains his emotions, concealing them from everyone more and more as the moon shot approaches. He is not a man to engage much in small talk.

Interestingly, the movie portrays Buzz Aldrin as a bit of a douche bag, who blurts out insensitive things at the wrong moments. And you really feel for the wives in this adventure, as they bear the strain of their spouses going off to space and risking their lives.

It struck me that the somewhat Aspie personality traits that these men possibly had may have contributed ultimately to the success of the Apollo program and the landing on the Moon.

While it was hardly an unalloyed "feel good" movie, this was an ultimately uplifting and optimistic watch. Beacon
