    Seems like a cool and nice enough man, but oh gees he sure is locked in on the limits of today.

  2. Schmutzgreifer says

    Doesn't Holiwoood talk to NASA when they make all this tripe?

  3. Andreea Andreea says

    I hated "First Man". The character of Neil Armstrong was so miserable and depressed all the time, it was driving me insane. I mean, sure, he had a hard life, but there's no way NASA would recruit a sulky, depressed, done-with-life-looking guy to command the first manned mission to the moon. I'm glad Chris pointed that out.

  4. The Ferryman says

    OMG – he is better and funnier than 90% of movie critics

  5. Damion Campbell says

    This was so enjoyable he explained everything so well a baby would understand. He commanded this interview. He should have a show

  6. Damion Campbell says

    His reaction to Armageddon was fxxking hilarious #priceless I literally LOL

  7. Mei says

    I love how he stands up for little girls dreams and says you're not just some girl needing rescuing you can be legendary on your own (awesome hat tip to the most experienced astronaut lady)

  8. Cloee Soler says

    Chris Hadfield. A great name to remember. Just a man who's been in Space 3 times.?

  9. João Jotta says

    That's a concept error in most movies and games: in space you don't need to keep accelerating (pushing the pedal) to keep speed. Fuel won't be a problem to keep speed as there's nothing to slow you down.


    Everything was going right untill the interstellar scene

  11. Bill Hogue says

    Ok…I was with him until he had to bad mouth Armageddon! Not acceptable!

  12. Fernando Rodriguez says

    He's handsome, sorry I had to say it.. Now crucify me youtube. ?

  13. buttman robin says

    He is really fun at parties.

  14. TokyoKazama says

    I know that the science is virtually non existent with regards to Armaggeddon, but it's actually my favourite space movie of all time.

  15. Frank - no mustard says

    Astronaut Hadfield thank you for taking the time to share this. Well done! Popcorn's on me next time!

  16. The Cereza Seeds says

    Chris Hadfield should write and direct an accurate movie.

  17. dazraf says

    I loved this. Small point: we actually age slower at the bottom of a gravity well (eg surface of the Earth) not faster.

  18. mickelilltroll77 says

    I LOVE IT! Few things make me as angry and close to a mental breakdown as when Hollywood goes physics.

  19. Jonathan Rodriguez says

    I wonder how he really feels about Gravity…

  20. Ernie M says

    how does Chris Hadfield review space movies when he hasnt been in space?

  21. Chris says

    14:14 horrible edit

  22. Chris says

    I know Ether was nice and all and Nas did his thing… BUT CHRIS HADFIELD HAS ONE OF THE BEST OPENING REVIEWS FOR VANITY FAIR OF ALL TIME! ALL TIME!!!!!

  23. Liam says

    Just listened to an astronaut moan and rant about films for 30 mins and I'm not mad about it in the slightest

  24. CPU Alex says

    The last few minutes filled me with so much wonder that I nearly cried. Beautiful.
