    Airport '77

    ★½

    The first two Airport films were campy and kind of terrible, but watchable, occasionally gripping, and often unintentionally hilarious. This was the first film where I was not on board for any of the above. First off, it begins as an airplane film and switches to a naval adventure. It was a chore to get through, and I have a feeling that Concorde will be worse and better at the same time.

    ★★★★

    Quite the psychological exploration between (alleged) criminal and captor. Surprising to see such an introspective performance from Connery -- not that he couldn't act, just not often this deeply. The scenes in the interrogation room could have been a stage play, but played nearly to perfection. The flashbacks were not as strong, but worked as a way of developing Connery's character by showing the weight of his life's work.

    No idea how many times I've seen this. 6? 10? But not for awhile, and it blew me away all over again. I wish it was twice as long.

    Ready to re-open the wound while it is still fresh. Pray for me.
