The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey
Jack Reacher, based on a novel, starring Tom Cruise give action movie fans just what they're looking to find. Lots of booms and bangs. The business is serious: JUSTICE. The five-on-one fight scene is funny, violent and amazingly entertaining.
Absolutely loved this movie! I plan to purchase the DVD when it's available and enjoy it again.
The Hobbit, the creation of JRR Tolkien brings us face to face with Bilbo Baggins. Fans who have read the Hobbit will enjoy this movie version that includes the details from Tolkien's descriptions which brings Middle Earth to us.
Admittedly, I am a Tolkien fan. I've read all his books even The Silmarillion. I first read The Hobbit at 13, and am thrilled to see it come to life on the screen. This is another DVD I'm waiting to buy.
Flight, brings reality of a plane crash and the fall out from it to the screen. Absolutely a life-drama, there are no giggles from this movie. Denzel Washington is Whip Whitaker, a drunk who is an amazing pilot. In the end, it's memorable.
An amazing and sad story, it's true to life and Densel does a fabulous job of portraying the sadness of an alcoholic life. The pilot Whip Whitaker is extraordinary. His talent and skill at the controls saved lives. His sudden honesty gets him sober but he pays with his pilot license and time in prison. Good story, well acted.
