I tried reading A Brief History of Time but struggled to be honest.. Still, it always drew admiring glances when I was spotted carrying it around on the train :)

Personally I enjoyed it. I thought it was deliberately mundane to emphasize the reality of it all for three regular guys on holiday.

I thought the three leads themselves were also fine. Their dialogue however was not. A terrible script in my opinion and it was the words they said, not how they said it, which came across so poorly.

I saw this last night with an uncle and a friend. 

The best, most descriptive adjective that comes to mind is bland.  For the most part, the viewing experience was akin to watching a boring promotional tourism video for Amsterdam, Venice and Germany.   

For the life of me, as I sit here writing, I am trying to find something, anything positive to say about this film.  Im cognizant of the strong possibility of offending others that enjoyed it.  Ive been down that road before by stating to me, any movie he directs without starring in, is not a true Clint Eastwood movie.  While my opinion has remained unchanged in that regard, seeing J. Edgar in 2011 changed my decision to discontinue seeing his movies that he only directs.  In the interim, it was great seeing him appear on screen again in Trouble With The Curve and Im hoping The Mule will become a reality. 

The 15:17 To Paris shakes my faith a little, but not much.  I have learned to have no expectations whatsoever when it comes to Eastwood directed,  non-starring movies and will continue to go out of my way to see them on the big screen as long as he makes them.

The acting by the three main characters came across as believable.  Having the real life heroes portray themselves added a good sense of realism that may not have come across with seasoned actors. 

I enjoyed learning about how the events unfolded that day on the train in this format.  As with Sully, I initially learned of the news like many others, via media coverage.  Id say Mr. Eastwood definitely has a knack, a talent even, for re-telling these stories without sensationalizing them. 

I remember Clint once saying that hed continue making movies as long as there were stories to tell.  God Bless you, sir.  Keep em coming!

Jed don't worry about offending anyone who might have liked it. Everybody has there opinion and that's what this site is about. Expressing your thoughts and feelings on various Eastwood films. This film is not entertaining and won't get any nominations. I didn't go to the theatre expecting to be overly entertained. I went to see a film that Clint directed and to see the real heroes play themselves. And to see there story and how they saved all those passengers on that train. I personally enjoyed it. I enjoyed there journey they went thru that prepared them for that day. Again it's not an extremely entertaining movie and not a masterpiece. But I thought it was interesting. Just my opinion only.

Yea he's  almost 88.  He doesn't have to prove anything to anybody anymore.
Very true!  No matter what Clint does in the future he has proven himself. For me Clint is the greatest all around film maker of all time. Factoring in his acting and directing he's the greatest of all time.

Black Panther is one of my favorite Marvel movies.

I'm curious about the next Avengers movie, since it appears like they've thrown in just about everyone they could. It seems like there could be too many characters in it, but I'm interested in seeing if it works or not (it very well could work just fine).
