Sully

Have you seen this yet?  Oh my gosh, best film ever. I was ambivalent about seeing it.How much tension could they bring to an 'after the fact' film? It wasn't an adventure or natural disaster film. The disaster has already occurred so what's left to hold our interest?  Plenty! And if you don't care for insurance companies now, this film isn't going to make you warm up to them. Tom Hanks, who is always stellar, outdoes himself. I look for Oscar nominations for this one.
Highly recommended.

He came through time to find her.


As Sarah Miles drives down Eighteenth Street a stranger materializes in front of her car. She throws on her brakes, braces for impact and...drives straight through him. For a brief moment, his voice echoes in her head, "Saura." Then he's gone. Later that day, she discovers the SUNDIAL and her incredible journey through time begins.

On sale @ Amazon for .99 Sept 19-25.

  1. My friend Sally and I saw it last week. My Ph.D. is in Human Factors, and I about fell onto the floor (we saw it in IMAX) when I heard "Sully" say the human factor. I was so, so impressed. Yes, I also would highly recommend it, too, but I'm a bit prejudiced, as you can tell!

    1. I didn't realize you had your PhD. Many kudos, Elizabeth. That's a huge deal.
      It was an amazing moving wasn't it?

  2. More temptation? And as usual it isn't available at Amazon.com.au - or not on sale.

  4. Oh, a must see, if Tom Hanks is one of the pilots. I remember the incident reported even in our news, back in 2009.
    Thanks for bringing it to our attention!
    Now flying over to Mae's blog.

  5. EC, isn't it a movie release here? Sandra, your first paragraph interested me in the movie. Your last paragraph indicates that is about para normal, spirits etc, so I am not sure. I never watch trailers, so I will see what else is written about the movie.

    1. Hi Andrew,
      The paranormal reference is for Sundial.
      Let me know if you see Sully. I thought it was exceptional!

  6. I'm afraid we didn't get out to see that one. Might still. Heard the other based on reality film, Deepwater Horizon, is also really good.

    1. Deepwater is another one I couldn't decide whether it would be good or not. So thanks for the input.

  9. Loved that movie, Sandra. Tom Hanks is definitely one of my faves. (Light Between Oceans was a good one, too). Hip hip hooray for "Sully." Susan

  10. That's good to hear about Sully. I did wonder the same thing when I saw the trailer. Even when it happened, the media talked about it for MONTHS. It was definitely a feel-good story but I got so sick of hearing his name every five minutes! I do like Laura Linney, though (I know, odd, random choice!), so I'll definitely see it.

    1. It took me by surprise, Donna. Though, the ones you don't expect much out of usually turn out to be the best.

  13. Yours is the second good "ïn person" review I've heard. Moving it closer to the top of the list! Thanks.

  14. Great minds think alike! My hubby and I saw it on Friday (our 10th anniversary). It was well acted and I really liked Aaron Eckhart playing the co-pilot. The frustration of the hearings really shows what these co-pilots went through after the crash and I think it was done brilliantly. It is not an action movie but more of introspection and quite intelligent. Clint Eastwood is an excellent director.

  15. Happy Anniversary!
    Thank you....we couldn't remember the name of the actor who played the co-pilot.
