Eats & Bounds: Lubbock Concerts, Events, & TTU Sports – 10/20/16

Do you like movies?

It’s time for a bit of off-the-field distraction.

Fall is my favorite time of the year for the normal reasons (weather, football, fair food, etc.), but it also is the start of Oscar season at the box office. This summer was a bit disappointing for me, but I’ve already seen two movies in the last few months that I would highly recommend.

We saw Sully in IMAX and I was blown away. It does a great job of allowing the viewer to experience the incredible landing in the Hudson from a variety of perspectives without it feeling redundant. When I’m watching a movie like that, it constantly makes me think of what I would do or how I would have reacted in the same situation. All scenarios end with me needing to change my pants.

Hell or High Water went above and beyond my expectations. I had been sold since the trailer debuted about two brothers robbing banks in Texas being chased down by a Texas Ranger (Jeff Bridges). The soundtrack alone had me smiling with tracks from Townes Van Zandt, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Waylon Jennings, and Chris Stapleton. It’s a modern day western without trying too hard. The action is there, but they let the movie breathe in places. It’s also interesting to hear name drops of familiar West Texas towns including Childress, Olney, and Post.

Any movies you’ve seen this year that you would recommend?
