New Denzel Washington movie
I recently watched the new Denzel Washington movie "Unstoppable". The movie is about a train that is going at high speed but without a conductor, and, naturally, Denzel Washington is expected to stop this speeding train. Interestingly, the movie takes place in Pennsylvania. Much of the scenery and the track that this movie follows parallel to many of the "pretty pictures" we have looked at in class. I found myself thinking about our class discussions and mirroring my understanding of the scenes in the movie with what we have learned in class. The movie also provides an interesting perspective on how cities have built up around the train. The movie was pretty entertaining, but, more than anything, it does have a nice connection to our discussions in class lately! Watch it!
