Aviation Mall Movies, The Best Aviation Mall Movies Reviews 2023
The Regal Cinemas Aviation Mall has a lot to offer movie-goers. It offers multiple screens with new-release movies, plush seating & a concession stand. It’s one of the many theaters in Queensbury, NY that is worth a visit. Here are some of the best movies you can see here.
Howard Hughes’ 1930 movie Hell’s Angels is one of the most important cinematic works of American history. Its final sequence of two dissimilar brothers, who shoot each other is a truly moving piece.
The main character in this book is Hunter Thompson. A journalist who spends a summer with the Angels and learns the true meaning of their reputation. He sees that they are mostly ordinary people who have just found a sense of identity and belonging by joining the gang.
Despite their misogynist and racist attitude, they were also deeply patriotic. And the fact that they were able to get along with many black motorcycle gangs was a big plus in their eyes.
In the end, it seems that Hunter Thompson was trying to demythologize the Angels. By showing them as ordinary people and not as a nihilistic threat to society. He does this well but his approach is not always effective and sometimes. It seems that he is more interested in making light of their excesses than in telling the truth about them.
Maverick is back, and Tom Cruise (he of aviator sunglasses and a motorcycle) hasn’t lost a beat. The plot follows the same trajectory as the original, but this time he’s called to Top Gun. An elite pilot school, to train its best and brightest for an impossibly dangerous new mission. That demands dogfight combat that the military has never trained for.
The stunts in the film, involve stomach-dropping vertical drops. And difficult ascents out of tiny valleys. These were certainly shot from inside genuine, fast-moving planes. The pressure is exerted on the performers’ faces, bodies, and voices. As G-force increases add tension and emotional gravitas to these moments.
The resulting film doesn’t have much to say about geopolitics or the US government’s bloated defense budget. But it does manage to defend the old-fashioned movie values of speed, risk, and adrenaline. They are in danger of streaming-era nihilism. It also has a few moments of emotional resonance and includes a touching cameo by Val Kilmer as Ice Man. Maverick’s former rival who now commands the Pacific Fleet.
A grief-stricken widow (Jodie Foster) boards a plane with her daughter to transport the body of her husband from Berlin to New York. Both fall asleep early on, but when Kyle wakes up she finds that her daughter Julia has disappeared without a trace.
Taking its cues from Alfred Hitchcock’s The Lady Vanishes. Director Robert Schwentke creates a taut thriller. That builds suspense for two-thirds of Flightplan. However, the film then deflates like a punctured blimp.
A tense & entertaining little thriller. Flightplan is based around the disappearance of young Julia & the efforts of her mother to find her. It does have some large plot holes & is full of daft & ridiculous explanations thrown in during the final third.
A former fighter pilot and cab driver named Ted Striker (Robert Hays) is trying to win back his ex-girlfriend Elaine Dickinson (Julie Hagerty). Who’s dumped him and is on a doomed domestic flight? But when the plane’s entire cockpit crew falls ill after eating bad fish. Ted takes the wheel and tries to fly the plane until it lands safely.
He has some helpful characters to help him out. Captain Oveur (Peter Graves), Roger Murdock (Kareem Abdul-Jabbar). Doctor Rumack (Leslie Nielsen), and air traffic controller Steve McCroskey. During the flight, the doctor also comes up with several funny names for the pilots and crew.
Ted and the others try to navigate a series of convulsing, gas-soaked, panic-stricken, and occasionally topless passengers. A few people die, but there are no blood or gory details. Besides the comedy, there are also some drug and sexual references and mature themes that may fly over the heads of younger viewers.
