    Completely baffling that Gordy would say the audience “doesn’t understand the stakes” in First Man, as if the audience has zero knowledge of the space program going in. He seems to point to box office as a representation of screenplay quality? Again, baffling.

      Yeah. “We need to be told why it was dangerous”??! We already watched multiple people die. Every time anyone climbed into a ship, it was so noisy, so clangy, so analog. It was absolutely harrowing. And to say some shitty shark movie with Jason Statham was better? This was one of the most frustrating episodes I’ve ever listened to.

    I don’t think all of his First Man takes were off base, but I’m with you here — the stakes are pretty clear in the grandeur of the mission. Think he also grossly misread the dramatic stakes of Armstrong talking with his kids before he leaves.
