Agent Winchester’s Quick Review of Anna

Anna, directed by Luc Besson, cast/has three legit stars in it: Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, and Cillian Murphy. After a failed relationship ends suddenly, she is recruited by the KGB. After a year in training and two in the field, she learns the promise of freedom after five years of service is a lie. She is also a successful model between jobs, and working dual professions is hard on her.

Under the thumb of the KGB, including her handler, Alex (Evans) and intelligence officer, Olga (Mirren), she is a precise and methodical killer.

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.

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.
