The local movie theater has re-opened back up, again! I am THERE, ordering some popcorn and biggest drink they have because I want to support them now more than ever. Looking at “News of the World” it has some of my interests and seems like a chill movie so hey, why not?
*The MEAT* The story is *Solid*, not bad, certainly nothing great, but good enough to keep you entertained while seeing how it will all play out.
*The POTATOES* The acting is all Tom Hanks and Tom Hanks is his typical *Tom Hanks Good*. Everyone else in this movie is just background furniture, hardly anything noticeable (they might as well just have been a volleyball). This is a great example where a real Movie Star can carry an average film totally on his back and make it good.
*The VERDICT* Best way to describe “News of the World” is that it is just *Another Movie*. Nothing special here or memorable, in fact it is very predictable, but it will take you to another time and place if you want to get away for a while. Plus, with Tom Hanks in practically every scene, the movie rises to another level, especially if you are a big Tom Hanks fan.
Everyone, Please Stay Safe…
And as always… Stay Geeky!
