“Lincoln” is a HUGH ambitious undertaking for Steven Spielberg, but he pulls it off nicely.
“Lincoln” focuses on the last few months of our nation’s 16th president and his trials and tribulations at getting the Emancipation Proclamation passed and ending the war.
“Lincoln” is a great story nicely done. Two-time Academy Award winner Daniel Day-Lewis as “Lincoln” will make you believe. The cast of this movie is very talented and deep.
“Lincoln” is definitely worth the price of admission.
Sean Connery will always be James Bond to me. He set the standard for all other Bond impersonators who came after him. Although in this latest installment of the Bond Franchise, Daniel Craig runs a very close second to Sean Connery. The James Bond you see in “Skyfall” is “Shaken not Stirred”. He has such a cool facade you wonder if anything gets to him.
In this installment of the Bond Franchise, James Bond and M (Judi Dench) find themselves the targets of a sadistic killer who will stop at nothing to get to “M”. Additionally James Bond’s current assignment goes terribly wrong and all of the real identities of the undercover agents for Her Majesty’s Service have been compromised. Bond must stop the person from leaking all of the identities before the agents are harmed and keep “M” safe. The story unfolds from there…
Lots of action and violence, the movie at times is intense, dark and sensual. Although there are some slow parts, the movie will easily hold your attention. New faces appear for “Money Penny” and “Q”.
“Skyfall” is probably Daniel Craig’s best work as 007. Definitely worth the ticket if you are a James Bond fan.
Mr. Washington was masterfully brilliant in his portrayal of “Whip Whitaker a commercial airline pilot. Whip has an addiction to alcohol and drugs, but so far he’s managed to complete his flights without incident.
Whip’s luck runs out when a horrific mechanical malfunction of some of the planes hydraulics sends his plane hurling through the sky toward the ground.
Shocked and shaken Whip decides to give up the alcohol, but when the NTSB starts to investigate the crash and the events that led up to the crash, Whip finds himself out of control. The story unfolds from there…
“Flight” has excellent acting and a great cast. This is Denzel Washington’s movie from start to finish.
My only problem is that the plane crash sort of takes a back seat to the addiction that Whip has. Not enough attention was given to the other survivors of the plane crash.
To sum things up, “Flight” is about Heroism, Addiction, Recovery and Forgiveness.
