The Post a history of the Pentagon Papers
review Coming Soon!
Inferno movies for the most part has such a wealth of background historical information which makes it a prefect blend of education and entertainment. Robert Langdon (Tom Hanks) and Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) are both brilliant in this extraordinary film. To me it was practical to include an involved literary discussion of Dante’s Inferno in the film, it was very touching to me. That was one of the most interesting aspects of the entire story. Like many, I was surprised how unpredictable the ending was. The movie solution was challenging and elegant.
If Inferno does well critically and financially, you can bet that a fresh pass will be made on those existing Lost Symbol scripts, and Tom Hanks’ Robert Langdon may run, yet again.
Robert Langdon the famous symbologist (again played by Tom Hanks) he is now on a trail of clues tied to the great Dante himself. When Langdon wakes up he is in an Italian hospital with amnesia. Robert than teams up with Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones), a doctor he hopes will help him recover his memories. Later on as they travel to across Europe and against the clock to stop a madman from unleashing a global virus that would wipe out half of the world’s population. We than find out Sienna turns her back on Robert and leashes the virus out so know you have a madwoman. The world’s greatest mind faces his greatest challenge more ways than you know.

Captain Sully Sullenberger glided the US Airways into the Hudson and saved all the passengers on Thursday, January 15, 2009. The entire ordeal lasted just two hundred and eight seconds. Strangers want to hug Captain Sullenberger (Tom Hanks), buy him a drink, but he just wants to go home to be with Lorraine (Laura Linney) and his kids. Every time Eastwood and Komarnicki revisit the river landing, they give the audience new information and building action, with more focus on the tense, split-second decisions made by Sullenberger and co-pilot Jeff Skiles (Aaron Eckhart), in a ridiculous but Skiles-accurate mustache).
This documentary illustrates the inner conflict with being a patriotic hero. He follows his passion by spending hours in the air but coming home to his family seems very concerned about him. He takes out his frustrations by jogging in New York City in the days following a near-death experience. Sully’s discomfort about appearing on The Late Show With David Letterman is a plot point.
It is intelligently an unfolded drama that makes good use of multiple flashbacks and internal visions to bring the audience not only inside Sully’s head but also to really ‘feel’ the emergency landing rather than just witness it, without disturbing the flow of the film. Eastwood walks audiences through the incident multiple times, from different points of view and camera perspectives. Then he loops back and does it all again, via several computer simulations showing different choices Captain Chesley Sullenberger might have made in landing the plane.
In 1957 tremendous tensions between the United States and the Soviet Union were at it’s peak and James Donovan (Tom Hanks) a lawyer who is recruited by the CIA immediately got involved in a release and exchange a CIA U-2 spy-plane pilot, Francis Gary Powers (Austin Stowell) for Rudolf Abel who was arrested for espionage in the United States. (A well written story line from Ethan Coen and Matt Charman both are nominated for Oscars even this fantastic movie Bridge Of Spies)
