Agent Palmer’s Thoughts on Destination Wedding or This Post Can’t Be Ignored Because Then the Entire Internet Would End

Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding is an interesting and superbly written film. Written and directed by Victor Levin, this film is more than the sum of its main title Destination Wedding, but it’s “unofficial title” says a lot more about where it’s at, “Destination Wedding or A Narcissist Can’t Die Because Then the Entire World Would End.”

It stars Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves who are both fantastic, but it’s the script that speaks to me in the most incredible way.

Nineteen 2019 Movies that Agent Palmer is Looking Forward to and some others, too…

19 Movies to Watch in 2019

As movies go, every year seems to be about the same. There are great movies, those that fall short, those that surpass expectations, those that are bombs, and those that go under the radar. It’s not easy to figure out which is going to be which.

Sure, we know the ones that will do big at the box office, but that doesn’t mean they’ll be good or live up to their elevated expectations. That being said, here is my list of the 19 movies I am personally most looking forward to seeing in the theater during 2019.

NBC’s made-for-TV adaptation of Tolkien’s The Hobbit has a comfortable hobbit-hole in my soul

The Hobbit 1977

It seems odd that NBC’s made-for-TV movie of The Hobbit, which first aired on November 27, 1977, should be so divisive among fans. It is, after all, not only a faithful adaptation of the book upon which it is based but it is also the first adaption to the screen, both large and small.

That’s right, 1977; 35 years before Peter Jackson’s trilogy of the same name debuted, 24 years before Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy first debuted, and one year ahead of Ralph Bakshi’s animated critically acclaimed Lord of the Ring, there was Rankin/Bass’s The Hobbit.

As a film adaptation, First Man is Mission Accomplished

First Man Film Adaptation is Mission Accomplished

I’ve read First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong by James R. Hansen, the main source material for First Man the film starring Ryan Gosling. I’ve also recently read books by the two other astronauts of Apollo 11; Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, and I’ve always been fascinated with the history of space flight from every documentary and film I could get my hands on including the seminal The Right Stuff and PBS’s Moonshot.

All of this is a long way to go to explain that my opinion, while not expert within the field of astronautics, is kind of refined when it comes to the history of NASA within both the written word and moving pictures.
