Whiling away time on an International Flight

Location: 41,000 ft in the air

I’m visiting India after 2 years and my first flight is via Dubai. It’s a 14 hour flight and I’ve decided to try something new this time. I usually like to watch movies during my flight. So, I’ve decided to do just that, except, this time, I’m planning on blogging my reviews of all the movies that I watch during the flight.

Let’s see how this one goes.

Uri: The Surgical Strike

Rating: 4 out of 5.

It’s about India’s Surgical Strike. Worth a watch. I liked the screenplay of the movie. I didn’t get bored at any point during the whole movie. On to the next one.

Diego Maradona: A documentary

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This is just a documentary about World Champion, Maradona. Even though the documentary felt very long, it was good. Learned a lot more than I knew about Maradona, especially about Napoli, Italy, and Serie A during the late 80s.

Ad Astra

Rating: 1 out of 5.

Mostly picked this for Brad Pitt. After watching the trailer it seemed interesting and oh boy, I was so wrong. The movie is about how an astronaut learns that his father, another astronaut, is alive, after decades of believing that he died during one of the space missions to Neptune. Even though the idea of the story was fresh and even interesting, the movie itself was pure torture. Hope the next one is a better one.

As a kid, I grew up watching Disney’s Aladdin cartoon. I liked the movie. Can’t tell if I liked it because it was better than Ad Astra or if I genuinely liked the movie. Either way, I enjoyed it.

At this point, I was really exhausted. I watched way too many movies back-to-back. Thought a little sleep might fix that and did just that. I did watch another movie after waking up.

Angel Has Fallen

Rating: 2 out of 5.

I watched Gerard Butler’s Olympus Has Fallen and London Has Fallen movies. So, picking up Angel Has Fallen seemed like a no brainer. It’s about how his character in the movie is set up and how he overcomes it to prove his innocence. It was okay. It definitely wasn’t a great movie.

That wraps up my first flight. I’ll try to watch the El Classico on my next flight.

I am on my connecting flight now. I guess I have time for another movie.

The Hustle

Rating: 1 out of 5.

I felt like watching a comedy movie and picked The Hustle. It’s about how two con artists meet each other and run a long con. Sadly, the movie was disappointing.

And just as I was done, I landed in Hyderabad!
