Showdown

Flight Plan

Best films to watch on a plane

Add a list or tag with showdown:plane

As the holidays approach and time with family beckons, take advantage of that in-flight Wi-Fi to come up with a list of your ten go-to movies to watch while up in the air. You know, the focus-friendly ones that make you forget you’re in a flying bus with strangers, that overcome the five-inch barrier of an often-malfunctioning screen, that draw you in emotionally regardless of the stereo surround-sound of the engines and the lack of free pillows and blankets. A good aero-picture can be distracting or comforting, action-packed or slow and steady, a three-hour biopic you’d been putting off or a 90-minute breezy rom-com. Whatever floats your boat like Captain Aubrey or lands your plane like Captain Sully.
