Flim Weakly Review- First Man


Jean Luc Godard once said “Film is truth, 24 frames per second.” Now, I don’t know what that means, but I do know it’s wrong. First Man cannot be truth, because it’s made of film, and truth is made of emotions or something. I also don’t know who Jean Luc Godard is, or what 24 frames have to do with it, as frames are usually found in Asda, for pictures and photos to sit in.

Although, actually, films are made of pictures, aren’t they? So maybe that’s what he meant, in which case, he’s very clever, even if he’s from somewhere that isn’t where I’m from.

So, what, in fact, is a film?

Well, it’s a thing you go to see when it’s too early to see it on tv. It even comes out before the dvd. And it costs three times as much as watching it for free, which is really stupid. Unless it has nudity in it.

But not every film does.

“Bambi” didn’t.

Neither did “Spaceballs” and that has ‘balls’ in the title.

Welcome to FLIM WEAKLY.

This week, I saw stars and the moon and other space crap.

First Man

Ryan Gosling goes into space, really slowly, by crashing a bunch of things, doing things wrong and getting shouted at by his wife, for, like, two hours.

He finally gets into space, but seems really unimpressed, because space is full of nothing but black, which makes him a racist.

He goes to the moon, but it isn’t fun like in Wallace and Gromit, because Ryan is really sad, and Wallace wasn’t sad at all. Neither was Gromit. And they had fun eating cheese and getting chased by that little robot.

None of that happens to Ryan, though, and he goes home again, still looking a bit whingey.

Marks out of 10……..
