The very definitiion of a movie to watch on a plane. Had I paid to see this in the cinema I would have been very, very upset. I mean talk about flogging a dead franchise. How many times can they redo either story?
Jake Gyllenhaal plays Davis, a successful investment banker who struggles after losing his wife in a tragic car crash. Shallow review alert – all you need to know though is Jake is hot. I mean seriously look at these gratuitous pictures.
Want more gratuitous pictures of Jake? Try My Plaid Pants.
Enjoyable and killed 90 minutes but definitely a plane movie and not a cinema movie.
I mean seriously. LOL.
Mellissa McCarthy need I say more.
Another film I wish I’d seen in the cinema instead of on a plane. It was amazingly powerful and deeply distrubing. Based on the true events of the 2002 investigation by the Globe.
Under the direction of new editor looking to make a name for himself, the Boston Globe’s elite investigative team, known as Spotlight, is tasked with validating child-abuse claims against the Catholic Church. The team of journalists begin to uncover a massive scandal involving sexual abuse and the willful ignorance perpetrated by the Church in Boston at a scale even they coudln’t comprehend. Facing political opposition and resistance brought about by the powerful influence of the Church, the reporters put together a story exposing the corruption over decades hidden by the Catholic Church.
Best line from a DJ on radio ever!
“Before Grindr and scruff people used to meet in clubs listening to music like this.”
Morgan had great promise but seriously it just wasn’t coming together. As my husband likes to say, all the ingredients were there but there was just no baking soda.
A 90 minute movie and it’s on for 150 minutes. Seriously 60 minutes of adverts for 90 minutes of content. America go home you are drunk. Is it any wonder netflix has taken off like it has?
Wow. Well that was a tense movie Certainly made the plane trip zip by. I have to say the movie choices on AA are better than the BA transatlantic ones. I’m unsure why they had to rip out the equipment from the walls though rather than just say powering them down or disconnecting them from the interwebnet. Also Pierce Brosnan. Ugh.
Funnier than it should have been and of course Chris Pine and Tom Hardy so…
