Truly Exceptional, although the explosion at 4:02 was pretty meh, at least compared to the real thing.

Same for N1-3L. From my personal taste, 2:15 is the best part. Just to have a scale of N1 amazing size with humans next to her.

Michael Bay's touch? I can already see it...

Space Marines would jump from a burning helicopter onto their Harley-Davidson while listening to AC/DC's Highway to Hell loud. After a few seconds, the helicopter would explode in a gigantic fireball. Many of them would then be shot down by the Soviet anti-aircraft defense, but the strongest would land in a section of steppe, where a beautiful Kazakh would offer to host them, out of revenge for her father betrayed by the Party.

 

Edit

SP did it way better: https://www.pinkbike.com/video/155659/

Some great video in there, but why does it sound like there is a laugh track?

Another COVID-19 casualty... although it seems that like most of them, it had some pre-existing conditions, so to speak.

Now we need the Space Odyssey be rewritten.

P.S.
And refilmed.
Wait... Oh... Still no remake since 1960s...

Considering the scriptwriting and actor's playing quality of 20th century's remakes... don't remake 2001, please. Just... do not.

Yeah, it doesn’t need a remake, just a re-titling to 2101: A Space Odyssey

E: Maybe they could edit in some familiar little bug-eyed green guys...

My sides have violated self-isolation and launched into orbit.

You know that announcement by Trump about how the US is not going to accept the Common Heritage of Mankind doctrine with regards to space?

Let's look at the reaction from Roscosmos.

Quote

Planning to take over planets harm cooperation

Attempts at expropriating outer space and aggressive plans to actually seize territories of other planets hardly set the tone for fruitful international cooperation, Sergey Saveliev, Deputy General Director of Roscosmos State Corporation for International Cooperation, has commented.
“There have already been examples in history when one country decided to start seizing territories in its interests - everyone remembers what came of it,” he added.

Am I reading too much into this, or are these intentional allusions to Austrian man with mustache from exactly 75 years ago?
