This movie is depicted from the book and true story of Dan Rather and Mary Mapes investigation of former President George W. Bush military service. Their findings and Dan’s reports of this topic led to the end of his and Marys’ career (yet she is known as one of the best journalists in the 2000’s for another award winning story she published). The cover up and back lash into former President Bush’s military deployment led to several people being forced to resign, Mary being fired (ultimately taking most of the blame) and CBS being embarrassed. A little slow yet interesting. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cate Blanchett gets an Oscar nomination. Robert Redford does a good job as Dan Rather yet he looked like a “very” aged Dan Rather.

This is the sequel to ‘Planes’ yet it’s actually a stand alone movie on it’s own considering the storyline. Our fave planes (and new ones) are back with laughs throughout the movie amongst them all. Children and the young at heart will love the movie. I saw it in 3D and it was good yet the 2D experience is just as enjoyable (to save a few bucks). Great ensemble cast of voices!

I was unexpectedly pleased with this film. So much humor throughout and good from acting from the lead characters. June Squibb truly deserves her Best Supporting Actress nomination as does the film for Best Picture. Shot in black and white yet it truly gives you the feeling of a small town and the families that live here. It’s definitely an adventure for Woody (Bruce Dern) to “try” and collect a million dollars that he thinks he won.
