Day #21,483

No walking: flying

Movie #1109: Whatever Works(2009, Woody Allen)
Movie Rewatch: The Big Combo(1955, Joseph H Lewis)

Watching movies on a airplane is not the best cinematic experience. It rendered a great movie like "The Big Combo" into a so-so crime drama. You just don't get that underworld atmosphere from that little screen in the seatback in front of you. The Woody Allen fared much better as Woody relies on dialogue rather than atmosphere to fuel his movies. The Woody Allen was listed at 88 minutes whereas IMDB has it clocked at 92. It appears that there was 4 minutes that had to be removed in order not to upset the sensibilities of the AirCanada customer.
