My Jodie Foster marathon is still ongoing. Wheeeeeeeeeeee!!!

Flightplan is another one of her films that's been on my to-watch list since it came out and let me tell ya, this more than delivered for me. It was f*cking awesome! Sh*t, this is one fantastic thriller that totally spun itself in a completely different way than I thought it would be. I'm not sure how this was marketed back in 2005, but all I remember of this movie was the trailer all those years ago and remember saying to myself, "oh, it's The Sixth Sense....on a plane". After that, I never really made this a primary objective of mine to see.

So, watching the movie now, I was totally caught off guard when it went from what I thought was going to be a straight up 'supernatural' type of movie into an Action Thriller and I couldn't have been happier with the result. Why? Well, in the first half of the film, thinking it was still "The Sixth Sense", it started to dawn on me what a horrible way to end a movie.

There is something profoundly uplifting seeing a Mother fight tooth and nail to rescue her child and is why I think the movie as a whole works as well as it does. I'm still scratching my head why this movie has been received poorly. Do not listen to a word they say. Paid film critics don't know sh*t and never come at a movie unbiased. This is absolutely worth a Rent. For me personally, I will gladly Buy this myself for my own DVD Library. Highly recommend this. One last thing, just like Panic Room (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/panic-room-(2002)/msg16360/#msg16360), the bulk of this movie takes place in one location. And just like Panic Room, I would say that I was expecting at the end than what we get. But I still came away from this satisfied and does not take way from this being a nail-biting thriller in every sense of the word. More incentive to see this movie, it's got Sean Bean (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/dvd's-blu-rays/game-of-thrones-(season-1-2011)/msg10356/#msg10356) and Erika Christensen (http://pennycan.createaforum.com/tv/parenthood-(season-4-2012)/msg10682/#msg10682) in it as well.
