SULLY (2016) – My rating: 8.5/10

CAROL's WORLD

sullyBased on a true story, that I actually remember, this rendition is as good as it gets. In January of 2009, US Airways, Flight 1549, in route to Charlotte Douglas International Airport, lost two engines right after take off from LaGuardia (LGA) Airport at an altitude of only 2,818 feet, because a bird strike.  In this case, a flock of Canada Geese flying south flew into the engine of the plane. The goose or bird strike rendered the plane too damaged to make it back to LGA airport or to Teterboro, a nearby airport in New Jersey. The Captain, Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (Tom Hanks) and his First Officer, Jeff Skiles (Aaron Eckhart) were forced to land in the Hudson River. To make matters worst, an Arctic air mass that engulfed the region caused the coldest temperature of the season. The wind chill was 2 degrees and the water temperature was…

Bad news, Brangelina fans: Angelina Jolie has filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

The documents, filed in Los Angeles Monday, cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split. Jolie’s attorney, Robert Offer, told the Associated Press that Jolie made the decision “for the health of the family.” NBC News could not immediately reach Offer.

The actress and activist has six children with her actor husband, including three adopted children. “Angelina will always do what’s in the best interest to protect her children. She appreciates everyone’s understanding of their need for privacy at this time,” Jolie’s manager, Geyer Kosinski, told E! News.

“I am very saddened by this, but what matters most now is the well-being of our kids,” he said in the statement. “I kindly ask the press to give them the space they deserve during this challenging time.”

Trump Won’t Say It Himself, But Campaign Insists He’s No Longer A Birther

FROM

THE HUFFINGTON POST

A day after Donald Trump refused to tell the Washington Post whether he thinks President Barack Obama was born in the United States, his campaign put out a statement saying he believes it to be the case. 

“In 2011, Mr. Trump was finally able to bring this ugly incident to its conclusion by successfully compelling President Obama to release his birth certificate,” read the statement from Trump’s communications adviser, Jason Miller. “Having successfully obtained President Obama’s birth certificate when others could not, Mr. Trump believes that President Obama was born in the United States.”

On the surface, Miller’s statement seems like a final, reluctant step in a multi-year attempt Trump has made to raise doubts about Obama; the real estate mogul just now accepting the current president’s Hawaiian birth under the intense pressure of his own campaign.

HELL OR HIGH WATER (2016) – My rating: 8/10

Leave a comment

CAROL's WORLD

hellorhighwaterHell or high water is another summer flick that flew way under the radar. Hardly advertised, it has a semi-quasi cowboy taste to it. It could have been an exciting story but it is overcast by the oh so slow progression of events and flow to the bottom line. I, who am a very detailed person, got bored waiting and waiting and waiting…well, you get my point. The movie was too slow! Don’t get me wrong, it was still a good story and well acted.

Two brothers, Toby Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster), stick it to the system by paying back the bank that holds their family mortgage with money they just obtained by robbing banks. Tanner is an x-con who had just gotten out of prison for killing their abusive father and was all too happy to assist his brother, who was not a criminal, achieve…

FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS (2016) – My rating: 9/10

Leave a comment

CAROL's WORLD

FlorenceFosterJenkinsThere seems to be a push in Hollywood for films based on true stories. Embellished as they may be to make the story more exciting, most are pretty good and add rather than take away from the events that made it worthy of a Hollywood film in the first place.  Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep) is no exception. Some of these films are about people a lot of us have never even heard of. I for one have never heard of Florence Foster Jenkins. I must say, it was my loss. It appears that Florence, an American socialite and flamboyant dresser, loved music more than life. She became a prominent musical cult figure in NYC from the 1920s through the 1940s. Madame or Lady Jenkins (as she liked to be called) loved to sing however, she was known for her poor singing abilities and allegedly had no idea how…

WAR DOGS (2016) – My rating: 9/10

Leave a comment

CAROL's WORLD

WarDogsBased on a true story, War Dogs, a very dark comedy, was well written and well acted. No matter whose point of view this story was told from, those who were wrong seemed to get their just deserts and those who were right seemed to benefit accordingly. Two high school grads, who appeared to be best friends in school, moved on in separate directions. Neither had gainful employment or prospects of a meaningful career on their horizon. Efraim Diveroli (Jonah Hill), the more outgoing of the two fared a little better than his buddy David Packouz (Miles Teller), who was trying to make a career selling Egyptian, 400 count sheets to elderly homes. He quickly found out that no one really cared weather or not the elderly slept on better sheets or not, in the end, elderly had bigger problems than good sheets. At present, David was a licensed massage…

THE FIGHT WITHIN (2016) – My rating: 6.7/10

Leave a comment

CAROL's WORLD

TheFightWithinThe Fight Within was not a well advertised movie, probably because it’s faith based.  As it turns out, it wasn’t one of the best faith based movies I’ve seen but it was decent enough to hold ones interest.  Logan Chandler (John Major Davis)  is a boxer who doesn’t really want to be a boxer.  His dad, Rich Chandler (Dan Severn) owns a gym and was a pretty good boxer but died of a heart attack, leaving the gym to Logan and his brother Mason Chandler (Mike H. Taylor).  As in most of these boxer type movies, there’s a nasty, mean fighter, Haydon Dressler (Matt Leddo) who thinks he can beat the world, challenging the good guy who doesn’t want to be challenged for some unknown reason.  Logan meets a lovely girl, Emma Jones (Lelia Symington) who has her head on straight and her feet well planted in…
