Snowden or Sully

TaraC73TaraC73 Manchester NH
My baby girl started kindergarten last week... for the first time in 5 years I have lots of free time during the day - yay me!!

My husband has no desire to see Snowden or Sully, and I am equally intrigued by both stories, so I'm going to go to the movies SOLO and see something this week. (43 years old and never been to a movie alone!!)

Which would you see? *slightly* leaning towards Sully because it's almost guarantee i'll love it; but I am endlessly fascinated by Snowden's story.

    Going to movies alone is an awesome experience that not enough people do. I don't have advice on which to see since I have seen neither...however Sully is getting much better reviews.

    Maybe listen to the Bald Move podcast about Snowden first? That might help you make up your mind.

    Sully if you want to feel good about yourself and your country, Snowden if you want to feel bad about yourself and your country.

    Yeah @Frakkin T if I enjoy going solo it will definitely become a regular thing!

    @Garthgou81 yeah, I'm kind of excited to give it a try. The opportunity just never presented itself... closest I got was me and my newborn going to see the footloose remake while my son and a few of his friends went to see Puss in Boots. I slept through the whole thing hahaha!!!

    @TaraC73 take yourself out to lunch, too :) You get to pick the restaurant 100% of the time when you are by yourself. :)

    About an hour into Sully now. It's way better than I expected. Basically, it does for patriotic incident movies what American Sniper fails miserably at doing for patriotic war movies.

    Doesn't hurt that it also shows just how fucking incredible New York City is. That place might not ever have enough movies, documentaries, tv shows, or music made about it. It's nickname should be "Infinite City."
  • @Freddy Check out American Experience: The Blackout on Netflix if you haven't already, it's a pretty interesting little documentary about the '77 NYC blackout. I had no idea of just how many damn fires were started during the blackout until I saw it, it's pretty crazy.

    Will do. While we're at it, one of the largest art exhibits in the history of mankind was created and destroyed within a span of about 50 years: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Graffiti_in_New_York_City

    Still being created and destroyed as a matter of fact.
