The Terminal

Opening Mood: Woke up just now! Good morning!
Opening Song: Girl from yesterday – The Eagles

Watched the movie The Terminal yesterday night. It was absolutely awesome!

A story of a man stranded in the JFK airport because his country underwent a revolution while he was on his way to the US and hence his visa and passport were invalid until U.S could recognize the new government of his country. Which meant that, he was, as one of the homeland security guys tells him, simply “unacceptable”. It’s a story of how he manages to wait for about an year in that same airport doing all sorts of odd jobs , making friends with people in the airport, but never complaining about it. This movie goes right at the top of my best watched movie list alongside Shawshank Redemption and the Forrest Gump. Tom Hanks, is once again brilliant in the movie. My uncle, who lent me the DVD of the movie told me that he loves Tom Hanks because no one else acts as naturally as Tom Hanks does! Oxymoron it is, but nevertheless very true!!

So if you haven’t watched the movie yet (it was released in 2004), rent a copy or better, buy one! It’s totally worth it.

Closing Song: Pretty Maids all in a row – The Eagles.
Closing Mood: Gotta go!
