Though brief and relegated strictly to the start, I did find myself moved by the romance at the beginning of Tom Hank’s latest war drama, Greyhound.
Past this almost throwaway moment in the movie, everything else that takes place in director Aaron Schneider’s World War II movie happens at sea. For Greyhound is a story that focuses on US Navy captain Ernest Krausemust as he leads an allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolf packs.
As you might imagine, there are plenty of tense moments that will make it hard to look away from the screen. Moments that show us how tough a captain’s job is as he tries to avoid getting his ship and all his men blown up.
The acting is of course, faultless. However, I can’t deny that the visuals of the grey ships on the Atlantic; visuals that lasted for approximately 95 per cent of the movie had me yearning for difference.
Greyhound is one you watch because you love Hanks and you’re curious about just how well-executed the tense moments are.
Other than that, I’m almost one hundred per cent sure you’d enjoy Hank’s other movie set at sea much more. I’m of course speaking of Captain Phillips (2013).
A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood is a new Marielle Heller directed drama / biography that focuses on iconic American TV host Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks). Particularly his friendship with journalist Tom Junod (Matthew Rhys)…
Personally, I can find zero reasons for not watching this. I already adore Mr. Hanks and Mr. Rogers is, according to most if not all who knew of him, a big ball of happiness.
Susan Kelechi Watson, Enrico Colantoni, Chris Cooper, Wendy Makkena, Tammy Blanchard, Maddie Corman, Sakina Jaffrey, Kitty Crystal and Noah Harpster also star.
Toy Story 4 is all about the revelation of just how big the world can be for a toy, especially after a new toy called “Forky” joins Woody and the gang and a road trip alongside old and new friends begins.
Directed by Josh Cooley; key cast includes Tom Hanks, Annie Potts, Patricia Arquette, Tim Allen, Joan Cusack…
A lovely teaser trailer that ended nicely with comfort that is hearing Tom Hank’s voice as Woody. I vaguely recall the previous Toy Story films. Clearly time for a re-watch.
Laurie Metcalf, Kristen Schaal, Jodi Benson and Bonnie Hunt also star.
Directed by Steven Spielberg and inspired by true events, The Post tells the story of the cover-up that spanned four U.S. Presidents and pushed the country’s first female newspaper publisher (Meryl Streep) and a hard-driving editor (Tom Hanks) to begin a journalistic battle against the government…
I didn’t realise I missed Meryl Streep so much until I saw her turn around in this trailer. I’m of course going to be watching because of her and Hanks. It’s also going to be an experience to watch all the sexist nonsense that will be directed at her character, Kay Graham.
Sarah Paulson, Carrie Coon, Bradley Whitford, Bob Odenkirk, Matthew Rhys, Zach Woods and David Cross also star.
Featuring Leonardo DiCaprio, Cate Blanchett, Martin Scorsese, Christian Bale and Tom Hanks – to name just a few; Spielberg is a new Susan Lacy directed documentary about the highly respected director Steven Spielberg’s career…
I’ll watch to learn more about Spielberg. I also just want to listen to a bunch of my favourite filmmakers talk about movies.
California Typewriter is a documentary about people whose lives are connected by typewriters. Featuring Tom Hanks, John Mayer, Sam Shepard, David McCullough and more, the film covers the subject of creativity and technology…
I completely understand the tactile pleasure thing but I find it incredibly hard to believe that the future will be, ‘the self sufficient over the efficient’. I’m going to watch this to find out how much the documentary will change my mind, if at all.
