The 21-Word Review: Jason Bourne (Delta In-Flight Movie)

I like Matt, but I just don’t see the appeal. Not a bad pastime movie, but nothing really justifying these sequels.

The 21-Word Review: Magnificent 7 Remake (Delta In-Flight Movie)

No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. No.

The 21-Word Review: Eye in the Sky (Delta In-Flight Movie)

Like the non-stop action of 12 Angry Men? Then you’ll love this movie. Seriously – the acting and the writing are exquisite.

The 21-Word Review: The Girl on the Train (Delta In-Flight Movie)

The unreliable narrator. Remember that concept from your High School English class? The author of this book certainly did. Very unreliable.

The 21-Word Review: Inferno (Delta In-Flight Movie)

The bad book did not turn into a good movie. I don’t understand Opie and Forrest’s obsession with this awful material.

The 21-Word Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children (Delta In-Flight Movie)

It was a really imaginative book and, even though Eva Green is clothed head to toe throughout, a really entertaining movie.

The 21-Word Review: Nerve (Delta In-Flight Movie)

You ever want to smack around actors on screen who are too cute and stupid to exist in the real world?

The 21-Word Review: The Accountant (Delta In-Flight Movie)

Did you notice the scene that was filmed at Georgia Tech? It’s when they are sitting on the large concrete steps.

The 21-Word Review: Keeping up with the Joneses (Delta In-Flight Movie)

It stars Wonder Woman. And I do not mean Lynda Carter. Not that Lynda Carter would be a bad option either.

The 21-Word Review: Captain Fantastic (Delta In-Flight Movie)

I left it mainly wanting to argue with the inevitable audience members who will see Viggo’s character as a role model.

The 21-Word Review: Masterminds (Delta In-Flight Movie)

Based on a true story, or at least as true as could be remembered by someone later played by Zack Galifanakis.

The 21-Word Review: Batman: The Killing Joke (Delta In-Flight Movie)

You know you are flying too much when you start watching the obscure animated super hero films. And then reviewing them.

The 21-Word Review: Alice Through the Looking Glass (Delta In-Flight Movie)

I would like to continue to believe that Johnny Depp is a talented, risk-taking artist. But this choice was just awful.

The 21-Word Review: Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (Delta In-Flight Movie)

The characters and story are incredibly consistent within the Rowling genre. Or so I am informed by my Potter obsessed wife.

The 21-Word Review: Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow

Amazing how Lin-Manuel managed to pull out the relevant bits and make it into a popular musical. A fascinating life

The 21-Word Review: Lee Daniels' The Butler (Netflix)

I finally saw it just as President Obama's term is ending. People of the future, we didn't elect Trump, did we?

The 21-Word Review: Stuff Matters by Mark Miodownik

A bit high level in some areas, but overall a fascinating way of making the seemingly ordinary things in life extraordinary.

The 21-Word Review: His Dark Materials Omnibus by Philip Pullman

"Read it as an adult!" they said. "It will still be amazing!" they said. They were sadly mistaken. Very, very mistaken.

The 21-Word Review: Kilo Two Bravo (Netflix)

Gritty and amazingly realistic. I could have used subtitles for the accents, but I'm pretty sure I caught the overall gist.

The 21-Word Review: The Revenant by Michael Punke

Having not seen the movie, I can't imagine how Leo survived it. If you ever think your day is going badly ....

The 21-Word Review: Red Cliff (Theatrical Version) (Netflix)

Truly spectacular, interesting, and complex. I could not tell who was who during the large battles. Perhaps colored hats next time?

The 21-Word Review: Hitman, Agent 47 (Delta In-Flight Movie)

Every  flight, I pick a movie to sleep through that is sufficiently noisy but limited in plot. Introducing this week's winner.

The 21-Word Review: Name of the Rose by Umberto Eco

Ironically, I was halfway through reading his book with the author died. A brilliant if unnecessarily dense book at times.

The 21-Word Review: Hunger Games, Mockingjay Part 2 (Delta In-Flight Movie)

It is hard to remember when Jennifer Lawrence was a young, fresh, relatively new face in the first Hunger Games movie.
