    Jake Gyllenhaal watching Sputnik 1 fly across the night sky and saying "Wow", I couldn't help but imagine Owen Wilson doing that.

    Nothing flashy by any means, everything here is solid in telling this great true story.

    I was already a Taika Waititi fan, but consider me an even bigger one now. Absolutely loved this film. It was nonstop laughter all the way through and it made for one of my favourite experiences at the theater this year. This was definitely reminiscent of the Hunt for the Wilderpeople version of Waititi. Outstanding work from Roman Griffin Davis, Thomasin McKenzie and along with Waititi's…
