I just saw Flight and I want to warn you not to see it. Turns out it's a movie about alcoholism. It had a message and the actors did a great job but the movie lacked substance. It's confusing how they sometimes glamourise the drug use with 60's rock music and then just after that it becomes extremely preachy. The movie was so dragging it made actually want to drink in the theater. Zemeckis could easily have cut 30 minutes out where the movie accomplishes nothing.
Yeah, I also had the misfortune of sitting through this.
I didn't so much have a problem with the movie turning around and being about alcoholism, but the movie could have simply been the first half hour followed by the last 10 minutes and it would have lost nothing.
For an hour the plot goes nowhere and only illustrates the fact that Denzel Washington's character is an alcoholic, which was already firmly established.
The movie gives a double standard glamorizing drugs while condemning alcohol and is filled with blatant product placements.
Drive however was very cool, I recommend Drive.
