Movies from the Plane

Whew! The past three days have been a whiiiirlwind! I know I owe Post A Day 4 posts, so I will try to do all of that today (though I am going to the beach later for a few hours so….)

I am finally in Praslin, Seychelles after a 17-hour journey. It was:
– 7 hours from Singapore to Dubai
– 3.5 hours wait in Dubai
– 4 hours from Dubai to Mahe
– 2.5 hours wait in Mahe
– 15 minutes from Mahe to Praslin

I usually can’t sleep on planes, but I got a solid 1 hour from Dubai to Mahe! I watched three movies in total:- Epic and The Place Beyond the Pines from Singapore to Dubai, and The Croods from Dubai to Mahe.

Epic and The Croods are computer animated films and they both have a simple story-line- that family is important. The plot, the characters and the animation in both films are simply amazing. They are both family-style movies, so put this on your list for the next family night!

Epic
Epic-  Colin Farrell, Jason Sudeikis, Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson
The Croods
The Croods- Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Beyonce

The Place Beyond the Pines is a crime-drama movie. Out of all the selections they had on the plane (Oblivion, Drift, Jack Reacher, Mud etc), this one seemed the most interesting. All the actors- Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes, Bradley Cooper- play a role that I have never seen them play before. The plot manages to keep you engaged throughout the whole two hours, and the movie has a time-span of 15 years. It is a heart-wrenching, mouth-gaping, unexpectedly good movie. If you are in the mood for a lot of swearing, raw emotions and heart-racing scenes, I highly recommend you to watch this, without the kids.

That’s it for now! Stay tuned for my next post, which will come within the hour.

Thanks for reading!
