Could have been called "Airport 2014." Decent enough whodunit has a killer offing passengers mid-flight and trying to blame the on-board Flight Marshall, Liam Neeson. The resolution is a bit far fetched but nonetheless, I was trying to figure it out the whole way. Worth a look on Netflix or HBO. Oh yeah, co-stars Julianne Moore, so that helps too.
Scorsese tells his usual little guy becomes a big man doing something illegal with his trademark flair. Di Caprio is charming - but how Jonah Hill got an Oscar nom is beyond me. A fine example of how greed and the American Dream have become synonymous. Gotta love the 80's - and Margot Robbie as Wolfie's bimbo wife!
Homogenized remake for The CW crowd seems to forget this is actually a story of obsession. The two leads are charming and do have some chemistry - but are there seriously no young American actors available and we must always cast from across the pond?
Tragic tale based on the true story of a young black man shot on New Years Eve at a Bay area subway stop, seemingly for no reason. Smartly told and beautifully acted by Octavia Spencer, Melonie Diaz and especially (ex-AMCer) Michael B. Jordan as the young man. An important and powerful film.
