Tom Hanks is at it again. News Of The World was magnificent. I’m not sure if there is a role out there that Hanks can’t master. He fit the part better than little Forrest Gump’s shoes fit.
It’s a slow moving movie, but for a very good reason. They immersed you into the Old West. They really planned the movie’s timing perfectly. The flow was like a lazy river. You enjoyed the pace because anything faster would have taken away from the meaning behind everything they were shooting for.
It’s a touching movie but it also makes you realize all the wrongs we as the human race have made. We’ve destroyed so much, wronged so many people, and overlooked others’ suffering in the name of the almighty dollar.
We took our seven year old granddaughter and she was even able to pick up on what they were striving to get across to the audience. She liked it, but I wouldn’t recommend taking someone that young. Towards the last half hour she started getting antsy.
I’m giving this movie two thumbs up. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. Happy Holidays everyone, and here’s to wishing you a safe and happy New Year.

RunPee.com owes RunPee Sis a huge debt of gratitude. She sees any movie needed with no complaints and has done so for ten years (even basing Thanksgiving and Christmas family festivities around the seeing films). In 2015 Sis ran the entire RunPee enterprise herself, while RunPee Dan, Jilly and Mom went traipsing off to Europe. Sis is the spider in the web holding the RunPee family together — besides being a funny, well rounded person, and a joyous pleasure to be around. Her favorite films start and end with horror (which thank goodness she’s happy to see, since most of us don’t have the stomach for it) — but also likes silly comedies, sad dramas, and musicals of all types. If you’ve used a Peetime for a scary film, you probably have RunPee Sis to thank for it.
Favorite movie genre: Horror, horror, and more horror. The more disturbing, the better. Period.
