On October 14, 2012 Robert Zemeckis’ latest film “Flight” made its world premiere at the closing night of the New York Film Festival.  Aside from some way too real scenes of an airplane crashing, the film plays like an after school special about the dangers of becoming an alcoholic. It’s extremely predictable and considering that Robert Zemeckis has made worldwide classics such as the “Back to the Future” franchise, you’d think he’d change this to an Alan Smithee film as the plane crash is not the only disaster you will see if you check out “Flight.”  John Goodman, though only in the film briefly, is definitely the highlight, unless you enjoy watching Denzel Washington smoke cigarettes.

But regardless of the movie failing to take off before crashing and burning (pun definitely intended), I am grateful for the experience and had fun.  Plus, I even got to meet a few awesome stars at the premiere.  See who after the jump.
