"Flight" (Washington).

Zel and Goodman team up again...

Quote:
The "Flight" trailer has crash landed online.

Robert Zemeckis' first live-action film since 2000 harkens back to his last one, "Cast Away," as it focuses on a plane crash and its aftermath. Only instead of Tom Hanks being stranded on a deserted island with Wilson, "Flight" features Denzel Washington as a Capt. Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger-type pilot who crash lands a crumbling plane and saves everyone onboard. He's a real hero! Except for the fact that Denzel's Captain Whitaker was drunk.

That's the dramatic hook of "Flight," which seems to combine aspects of the 1992 Dustin Hoffman film "Hero" with the Miracle on the Hudson, Tony Soprano's bowling shirt (seemingly worn in "Flight" by John Goodman) and Martin Scorsese's favorite music cue ("Gimme Shelter"). The result is interesting, if only because "Flight" looks like the kind of movie that studios long ago stopped making.

Can Zemeckis, who has spent the better part of a decade trying to hack his way out of the uncanny valley with films like "The Polar Express," pull off the unthinkable and land an adult-themed drama with ticket buyers? Don't bet against him -- especially with Washington at the controls. Also, the plane flies upside down and all. Who doesn't want to see how Denzel gets everyone out of that?

Starring Washington, Goodman, Bruce Greenwood, Melissa Leo and Don Cheadle ("Devil in a Blue Dress" reunion!), "Flight" arrives in theaters on Nov. 2. Head over to Apple to watch the trailer in HD.

It was good. Don't let micjones sway you. It is worth noting, however, the movie is nothing like the trailers make it seem.

I wasn't trying to sway anybody necessarily, but you can't tell me that movie didn't take a SERIOUS dive after the plane crash... That movie had an epic start and wobbled over the finish line.

Well, it really wasn' t about the plane crash- rather, it was about a man's denial of his substance abuse issues. As such, I thought it was very good...

Had some good laughs from John Goodman and a great performance from Denzel, as usual.

The movie had a tense vibe throughout that fit perfectly. I was honestly "on the edge of my seat" during the final NTSB hearing.

Good movie, for sure.

Denzel's an incorrigible drunk on one hand, but an elite high-functioning pilot on the other. Zemeckis' desperate attempt to redeem him at the end of the film didn't help. This selfish man who had never been able overcome his demons for the people closest to him somehow "came to Jesus" for a co-worker he was only sleeping with?

Kelly Reilly's character was underdeveloped and completely superfluous to the plot.

I would like to have seen more of Don Cheadle and his work to keep Denzel out of prison. The situation with the toxicology report deserved more attention.

In fairness, this is still one of Denzel's finest performances and I'll be shocked if it doesn't net him his third Oscar.

He'll have some tough, tough competition this year. I think he might get a nom, but I'll be really surprised if he walks away with the statue.

Completely unrelated, but I watched Safe House yesterday, and was shocked to find it didn't suck. Maybe I'll catch Flight when it's on HBO in 2 months.

I'll be similarly shocked if Daniel Day-Lewis doesn't win for Lincoln.

Agreed. I think DDL is the safe bet. I think Ben Affleck for Argo wouldn't be out of the question either.

****ing LOVED Safe House.

I thought Ryan Reynolds was exceptional in that one, as was Denzel.
