    Films watched in 2019

    Spacewalker (2017) Russian-made film about the Voskhod (Sunrise) 2 mission that featured the first ever spacewalk. I found the first few minutes confusing but after I figured out how to put the English subtitles on I was fine! High quality production with great performances from the lead actors, who also had a good physical resemblance to their characters. Visual effects were also very good, and the film maintained the sense of drama that occurred during the flight and the tension after the Cosmonauts landed and were awaiting rescue from the middle of nowhere. Fellow space buffs (if there are any others left on this forum!) will particularly enjoy it.
  7. Great announcement-nice one Showmasters!
  8. Love the Hammer films-would be great to meet her.

    Just finished "The Double Cross System" by JC Masterman. All about the activities of the XX Committee in WW2 that ran a network of double agents to feed the Germans false information. The Abwehr thought they had a good spy network in the UK; in reality the British controlled everything. The most celebrated agent was "Garbo" who played a big part in the D-Day deception plan (Operation Fortitude). Now reading "Dark Sun" by Richard Rhodes which is about the development of the hydrogen bomb. First part focuses on how the Soviets got their own atomic bomb with a lot of help from their spies at Los Alamos.
