Bob Zimmerman isn’t impressed with the Armstrong movie.
[Update late evening, before I drive up to West Palm Beach to pick up Patricia]
Some (sadly) hilarious thoughts and links from Jim Treacher.
OK, I see that Bob Zimmerman has had second thoughts.
I’m going to reserve judgment until I see the film. I think that the proximate cause of the uproar wasn’t the decision to leave out the flag planting, but the Canadian actor’s idiotic explanation of it. As I note in comments, the movie is a biopick of Neil Armstrong, not a history of Apollo, and his great achievement was not in planting a flag on the moon, but in simply being present on its surface.
