Great performances in need of editing

The Right Stuff is an epic movie to go along with an epic endeavor in history - the race into space. All of the performances of the all-star cast are first rate. The movie does a very good job of splicing in actual film footage without it feeling jarring. My primary complaint with the film as that there are a lot of scenes that feel out of place or unnecessary to the story, which bloats the run time to well over three hours. A good movie telling an important story which could have benefited from a more ruthless editor.

If know the reality of NASA you'll know this movie sucks

This movie was awesome when it came out. I saw it and thought "wow what an awesome movie! I want to be an astronaut". However when I started to learn about the US Space Program and NASA I started to realize that the director and writers for this movie overstepped their rights for artistic license.

So much of this movie is made up and bullshit that it is more fiction than it is truth. In fact, my research has led me to believe that 7/10 scenes in this movie are completely fabricated. Even character names, quotes and actions were changed for a variety of reasons, most common to make the movie fit a narrative of the director and writers.

Listing all the problems with the movie would take too much time and effort for me. However I'll say that if you forget about all the real life facts and suspend your reality for a few hours, it isn't a bad movie.

I did like this movie when it was released but over time it has lost the glimmer and shine. There are much better, more realistic, more historical movies out about the space race and NASA program.

The Original Thrill Seekers

(Flash Review)

This 3hr+ movie, which won four Oscars, was about the original Mercury 7 astronauts and how they were cheery-picked from the cream of the crop pilots of the era. This was an exciting time for America and NASA as they kicked of the space program with manned flights and were neck and neck with the Russians in the space race. The movie shows how the nation's interest transitioned from upping the top speed records to launching rockets into space. This sort of felt like a documentary, which was good and bad. Lots of neat training scenes, top end planes and rocket failures to orbiting the Earth. Yet the overall pacing felt choppy and uneven. Key moments were done well, yet not knitted together smoothly. For being nominated for Best Cinematography, I felt it was sub-par. Overall a long and fascinating movie for plane and space fans.
