Those damned theaters are dangerous, man...you think you're watching 3d but it's actually happening right in front of you. We happened to be in a "splash zone" and...well, ouch.

The last movie I saw was Florence Foster Jenkins about a month ago. It was the Meryl Streep movie about the "singer" in the 1940's who couldn't sing a note. Anyway, the theatre had reclining lazy boy type seats that were super cushy. The movie theatre didn't seat very many, I'd guess about 25 people. The seats reclined sooo far back and the leg rests went so far forward that the isles between the seats had to be quite far apart to accommodate all the space the reclining seats took up. It was the most comfortable theatre seats I've ever sat in. I could have easily gone to sleep in it.

The movie was wonderful by the way.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

We often go to the "D Box" seating, it's a small section of really nice red recliners in some theaters. Assigned seating you choose and pay for in advance, and the seats move and thump with the action in the movie, like those simulated roller coaster rides. I love 'em because not only is the seat comfy, but the banging and thumping the seat includes is like a nice back massage, lol. Cool

However, Eastwood and Hanks did a very good job. I enjoyed the movie, and although I don't know if it was completely accurate, it did jibe perfectly with the facts as I know them.

I'd say they did a wonderful job of creating a 90 minute movie out of an event that took 208 seconds.

I'll give it a 4/5. Mostly due to the apparent accuracy and Hanks, who was brilliant.

It doesn't matter what profession you are in. Hollywood will piss you off if you take their portrayal of it too seriously. There are movies centered around nearly every job title I've held, and Hollywood always screws up something based on the assumed perceptions of their intended audience.

Sometimes it's actually fun. As a teenage squid in the field of cryptology, my co-workers and I certainly got a kick out of enemy of the state. Dissecting and tearing apart all its seemingly obvious procedural flaws and the fictional technology they used to carry out their evil plans. Every once in a while they get someone right. We all cheered when they went to a scene in Gene Hackman's little hacker studio and he was plugging away at a Sun SPARCstation.

By Promise Films and Dove Channel...oy. Just...below the spoiler tags for spoilers. But for just one, I have to say, I have never seen a movie before where evil atheist kids throw a molotov cocktail through a person's window.
Man, Stephen Baldwin's acting is more wooden than a pirate leg. Actually I think Hayden Christiansen showed more emotion as Anakin Skywalker. Evil atheist at schoolboard meeting is screaming how God has no place in the public school. "I want to teach Biblical precepts like love, joy, respect for authority, self worth"...and then as the husband professes his love, wife takes her eyes off the road to kiss him, and they get t-boned and she gets killed, and now he must trumpet the Bible Club he himself had been against. This is a true tragedy, she was the only one so far that could act in this film, not well, but could. Also how is this a t-bone hit and run that flipped the car and then the other vehicle is now nowhere in sight? That should be impossible given this damage.

How do teachers afford this good a house? My mother was a public school teacher, with a master's degree, for over 30 years and definitely never made this kind of house's money. Also considering husband wasn't super into the Bible Club idea, I'm guessing the wife's the one who decorated the whole place in Jesus stuff...crucifix, Jesus painting, etc. Baldwin's friend is trying to get him to come back to work so he doesn't get fired, they gave him 12 weeks of a 7 day long bereavement leave. He's gonna go back now...and Stephen Baldwin's motions are so robotic, just like his voice.

Uh Stephen, pretty sure you, as a teacher, aren't allowed to recruit for "God's Club" on a school campus as a teacher, and trying to convince the kids, talk about God. Also starting your class with a moment of silence/prayer for your dead wife is kinda...sketch. Discount Marco Rubio is leading an evil cabal of atheist parents looking to shut down the "brainwashing". Principal is warning the club about all the things it shouldn't do. Oh look, hints that one of the evil atheist cabal is a child abuser. Also I think we're setting up the "miraculous healing" of a kid with depression, where we don't need no stinking man made medication while we have prayers. Holy product placement Action Bible comic.

Discount Marco Rubio is an asshole. "Where was God when your wife died eh?" And he's upset his kid now thinks he's going to Hell due to the Action Bible. Oh fistfight between Discount Marco Rubio and Stephen Baldwin, action in a film hasn't been so hammy since I watched the original Star Trek episodes this weekend. Now Discount Marco Rubio's kids have broken into the school and are trashing Baldwin's classroom, spraypainting "WORST TEACHER" on the board, toilet papering it, and tearing up the God's Club signs. And kid who is in love with Baldwin's daughter is helping them. And principal has just told us they tore up the Bibles offscreen. And Discount Marco Rubio's kids just beat up Baldwin's daughter, and she's the one that got suspended, because, you know, persecution.

Long drawn out scene with depressed kid's therapist about God, therapist keeps deflecting question about if he believes in God. But definite hints that praying will cure him. One of evil atheist cabal's daughters just fucking molotov cocktailed Baldwin and his daughter's home and spray painted the car "WORST TEACHER EVER". Seems like very little damage for a molotov. One of our atheist cabal is confronting his son for not taking his Prozac, and is angry that he's trying prayer and the Bible instead, "but dad, it works!". And the molotov person has been found out, because a kid told on her due to it being "The Christian thing to do". And there goes therapist breaking patient-doctor confidentiality...

School Board meeting has no one with half a brain opposing Bible Club, just a bunch of strawmen atheists. Baldwin is giving what is probably the film's climactic speech. About how he should've been better in faith and prayed with his dying wife. "A separation of church and state should never mean a separation from God." And how he won't press charges against Discount Marco Rubio's daughter for molotoving his house due to his faith.

And Beard Man Atheist's kid who <3s Baldwin's daughter goes to jump off a bridge, her praying next to him stops him, flash forward to him helping lead a full Bible Club, and oh look his depression has magically gone away with prayer and Bible reading! End film to room full of clapping after he reads the Armor of God passage, implying his depression was caused by Satan.

Dude, I kinda want to call the FFRF on you now Stephen Baldwin's character. Your Bible Club is teaching things like "Don't take that wacky modern medicine kids, just pray it all away."

Sully 4.5/5
Clint has some sort of fetish with crashing planes into building as a method of showing how haunted Captain Sullenberger is, but that's my only real complaint. Good pacing, excellent story, shows a nice view of what happened behind the headlines.

"Always take your fucking medication!" - Eli Bosnik

I didn't realize they'd done this one too, thanks for the link! Gonna watch it after my meeting. And Eli is, as usual in his foul mouthed commentaries, right.

Edit: Oh this is so much better than the actual movie... "When she said 'mom always goes to the Bible' I wanted it to be hollowed out with a black dildo in it."

Edit 2: Oh dear...next time they do "The Unexpected Bar Mitzvah"...I feel anti-Semitic by association after just watching the poorly acted stereotype filled trailer that tries to cram in more Jewish stereotypes than...you know, I don't even have a way to end that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S52u87c9FGM

Need to think of a witty signature.
