Re-watched The Terminal

Bookmarked The Terminal (

The Terminal is a movie starring Tom Hanks, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Chi McBride. An Eastern European tourist unexpectedly finds himself stranded in JFK airport, and must take up temporary residence there.

Wouldn’t recommend. Kinda racist against eastern europeans? Prejudiced at least. Too much slapstick. Weird to cast American everyman Tom Hanks as a fake Russian? All I remembered of this from seeing it in high school was the trekkie Zoe Saldana and that was much less prominent than I remembered. There was a whole romance with a flight attendant I had forgotten – because it was pretty painful.
