What's with the stupid, sappy endings in so many American films? Can't anyone in the states figure out how to end a film? bah!

I'm putting this here to remind myself to at least try to re-do my review of this movie, and..... I don't know, "John Q." here did a great job, so....

It's a great character movie; it's a character study.

There. There's my executive summary. More to follow along those lines, I hope.

A good movie

“After experimenting for about a decade with motion-capture with some rather mixed results (I wonder how he felt after James Cameron reached such a massive success with 'Avatar'), Robert Zemeckis was back with a good old live action feature and I was therefore really curious about the damned thing. On top of that, Roger Ebert really loved this flick so it sounded like a very interesting feature. Eventually, I did like it but I don't think that Zemeckis was the right director for this material. I mean, it was quite a strong story and, at the center, you had a really impressive Denzel Washington who gave definitely here one of his best performances but, somehow, it didn’t completely grab me. I mean, it was some very dark material and I don't think that the guy behind such movies like 'Ro” read more

Top-flight drama from Zemeckis

“"Nobody could've landed that plane like I did."

Though Robert Zemeckis has spent the last decade dabbling in motion-capture and animation, his skills as a live-action director have not diminished in the slightest. Returning to live-action for the first time since Cast Away, 2012's Flight is one of Zemeckis' most thematically heavy, dark and outright dramatic picture in years, dabbling in R-rated territory (an area very rarely explored by the filmmaker) as he deals with addiction and the grim side of humanity in an uncompromising fashion. Due to this, Flight is not an especially pleasurable viewing experience, and movie-goers expecting fluffy entertainment should look elsewhere. Nonetheless, this is a competently-produced and superbly acted motion picture which deserves to be seen” read more

“High Five and hats off to this new sensation starring Denzel Washington. I am a big fan of him and try not to miss his power pack performance.

Flight is a great movie featuring Washington as an airline pilot, Whip Whitaker. He is hailed as a hero when he saves a plane-load of passengers during a flight gone terribly wrong. However the events got a twist when the investigation started of the case in which six people died, eventhough about hundred passengers survived. Everything is on Whip's side except his own weakness of being avid drunkard, a hardcore alcoholic and habitual drug user and he was under the influence when he landed the plane. When his drug use comes to light after a toxicology report, Whip finds himself face-to-face not only with his own addictions, but also the ve” read more

"The whole business with the flight and the hospital scenes (particularly a hilariously-scripted scene involving a cancer patient) are just ways of trying to give a level of freshness to what is really just a standard-order story about a struggling alcoholic. "

"Watched 11/23/12 I didn't know that this would be such a heavy drama about the burden of alcoholism going into this movie. I haven't been this emotionally disturbed by a movie in a long, long time, but that's to the movie's (and all the actors') credit."

"I don't think an actor has ever been given a first-appearance in a film in a fashion so similar to a lame punch-line as Don Cheadle in the new Zemeckis movie. Camera casually pans right over a group of faceless suits sitting around a conference table until... BAM! Cheadle, bitches! Bet you forgot! We've got Cheadle up in this motherfucker too!! Okay Zemeckis. Nice trump card. Just keep pattin' yourself on the back. "

" Huh. I don't remember the microphone including a headset the last time I accepted an Academy Award. In the opening minutes of Robert Zemeckis' new film Flight we are greeted with a lingering full-frontal nude shot of the very lovely and very sexy Nadine Velazquez (My Name is Earl). Moments later the camera zooms in on Denzel hoovering a big ol' line of blow off his nightstand. Having directed a couple of middle-of-the-road, boring-ass, crowd-pleaser pieces of Oscar-bait (Cast Away, Forrest Gum"
