Reviews from 30000ft

Gran Torino–Korean-vet Clint Eastwood gets grumpy with Asian gangs messing with his Asian neighbours. Good movie, but more interestingly, an impressive movie (tight, controlled, no extraneous parts). The ending is pretty sad. Eastwood is very good.

Appaloosa–Western with Viggo Mortensen, Ed Harris, Renée Zellweger. (Curiously the inflight movie guide listed Viggo Mortensen as the one star.) Meanders a bit too much (in plot and character development), but adequate. Mortensen wears some interesting double buttoned shirts.
