Mom and I made it to the movie theater with perfect timing just as our movie, Captain Phillips, was starting at noon. I really enjoyed the movie even though it was intense action from beginning to end – a movie which I try to shy away from. Adrenaline junkies will love it.
It is hard to believe Tom Hanks got his start as a standup comedian showing up at various comedy clubs around the nation. He plays such dramatic and serious characters these days and with quite an acumen I might add. He is the quintessential everyman for everyone.
When the United States Navy shows up at the end of the film, then you can start to relax and cheer. Things start finally looking up for our protagonists. Somali pirates were no match for Navy Seals.
Mom started to have anxiety attacks on our way home. I am very empathetic when this happens to a loved one. My mother and I are in the same boat. They weren’t so bad that she couldn’t stop and eat a Butterfinger blast with her medications as we headed out of town, though. I got a large chocolate shake and then we headed up the interstate – headed to home.
