"We're going to end up in the Hudson"


How can any true movie fan can not be looking forward to "Sully"? It's Clint Eastwood and Tom Hanks. Eastwood is coming off his most successful movie ever "American Sniper," before that he was stuck in a painfully in bad streak ("Hereafter," "Jersey Boys," "J. Edgar," "Invictus"). This could be another return to form for the 86 year-old director who had a fantastic streak going in the 2000s with "Mystic River," "Million Dollar Baby," "Letters From Iwo Jima," "Gran Torino," "Changeling." Clint is still the man, but there is something off about "Sully,"

Here is what I wrote on 7.1.16


"The story of American pilot "Sully" Sullenberger, who landed the troubled US Airways Flight 1549 full of passengers on the Hudson River on January 15, 2009, is well known and was one of those feel-good stories that really just made you happy that something good actually happened in the world. Sully is a hero, he saved many lives on that day, but is it enough to make a feature-length movie out of it? Well, I think, judging by the trailer, that Eastwood's focus will very much be on the aftermath investigation and the backlash that occurred on Sullenberger. Supposedly, and I don't know if the film actually touches on this, Sullenberger's pension benefits were terminated just a month after the event and his salary cut by more than 40 percent. Supposedly airlines were hiring less experienced, but cheaper pilots and were cutting down on the Sully types. Now THAT could definitely make for an interesting movie if Eastwood can delve into this part of the aftermath"
