Hope you got a chance to see “Red Tails” this weekend. What an inspirational, action packed ride! The aerial fighting scenes are incredible. The good news is that lots of folks went on opening weekend. As Box Office Mojo reports, “Red Tails cruised in to second place with a very respectable $18.8 million”, which is more than several other comparable fighter pilot movies have earned in their first weekend. The movie received an “A” CinemaScore, which improved to a fantastic “A+” score for those below 18 and above 50. Red Tails marks distributor 20th Century Fox’s best opening for a non-franchise title since last April’s “Rio”.
This is a good old-fashioned war movie, wonderfully corny and patriotic, enhanced by modern special effects. For those of you who haven’t seen it yet, go as soon as you can! If you enjoyed it, go see it again!! Take your parents as well as your children, especially your sons.
