an Unstoppable movie
Justin: As you know every Friday night is Movie Night and yesterday was Nic's choice. She went with the Denzel Washington Chris Pine runaway train thriller, Unstoppable. Here's a synopsis from IMDB:
With an unmanned, half-mile-long freight train barreling toward a city, a veteran engineer and a young conductor race against the clock to prevent a catastrophe
Wow, this movie was superb! A very tense and well written thriller was a nice change of pace for us. A lot of action movies these days go even beyond the hyper realistic and this movie felt very real to me. The term "blue collar" comes to mind. I kept thinking this movie was "Speed" on a train but really it was its own beast, and that's a good thing. I highly recommend checking this film out it's a great time at the movies. And one of the best thrillers of the year.
Nicole, thoughts on your choice for the night?
Nicole: Judging by the fingernail marks I left in Justin's arm, I'd say the movie was pretty intense. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time, and I felt that it was a believable movie. I liked it a lot and I'd say this is a movie that I would see again. That doesn't happen often for me, so I would take that as a good sign. Go see this movie!
