Big Movie Review 

After a wish turns 12-year-old Josh Baskin (David Moscow) into a 30-year-old man (Tom Hanks), he heads to New York City and gets a low-level job at MacMillen Toy Company. A chance encounter with the owner (Robert Loggia) of the company leads to a promotion testing new toys. Soon a fellow employee, Susan Lawrence (Elizabeth Perkins), takes a romantic interest in Josh. However, the pressure of living as an adult begins to overwhelm him, and he longs to return to his simple, former life as a boy.
This was one of my favorite movies when I was a kid… and it still is to this day!
Tom Hanks really gave this role his all and it ultimately helped launch his career.
I still don’t know if Zoltar actually grants wishes or not but I guess that’s part of what makes this movie so magical.

Sully Movie Review 

‚ÄčSully is an okay movie about an actual harrowing event that took place back in 2009 in New York City.
Captain Chesley Sullenberg safely landed a commercial airliner on the Hudson river. None of the 155 passengers aboard sustained more than minor scrapes and bruises. 
I was somewhat surprised that this real life event was adapted into a full length movie. Not because it doesn’t deserve to be retold but because there isn’t a whole lot that most people don’t already know about.
The recreation of the actual event is very suspenseful and heart-wrenching. Tom Hanks also gives a great performance as Captain Sully. Unfortunately, everything else just seemed like it was stretched out in order to justify a one hour and thirty six minute run time.
If you like movies based on actual events you might like this one.
