The Terminal

Tammy and I went to The Terminal tonight. I gotta admit that I liked this movie a lot more than I expected I would.

You start with Tom Hanks. Granted he's one of the best actors alive today. He's right up there with the greats, but he is Tom Hanks and for some reason I don't have the desire to see him in a movie like I do Al Pacino, or Marlon Brando or even William H. Macey! But every time I do see him in a movie I really enjoy it. Spielberg is also a great director but falls unfortunately into a similar category as Hanks.

Anyway, the plot sounds really boring, a guy stuck in an international airport terminal, however it is really fun and enjoyable. You leave the movie feeling good and happy, which is sometimes exactly what you want a movie to do.
