Oscar Nominations:

Supporting Actor (Barkhad Abdi)
My Review:
1  2  3  4  5  6  7  8  9  10

I was excited about seeing Captain Phillips from the first preview I saw way before the film was released.  I love Tom Hanks (and met him last more here!) so I had plans to see this one without even realizing it would have a shot at Best Picture.  To be honest, I didn't think it was quite Best Picture quality, but it was a fabulous edge of your seat flick.  Since it is a true tale, I was soaking up every minute.  I never got bored or distracted throughout the entire movie.  There were so many times particularly early on when I really wasn't sure how the Captain and crew were gonna survive the situation at hand.  I don't want to give away too much in case you haven't seen it, but there are some scenes that really have you holding your breath.  I would recommend that you all go rent this movie tonight!  I promise you won't regret it!
Have you seen Captain Phillips?  What did you think?

  1. I wasn't excited at all to see this movie, but I went along with my husband. And omg was I glad I did! I loved it so much. Tom Hanks was AMAZING.

  2. I've heard it was good. Lee watched it the other night. I just wasn't interested at the time. I feel like that's the type of movie I'd need to be in a certain mood for. I'm enjoying the movie reviews!
