The 33

I hate to say it, because this truly was/is an incredible story—and heart wrenching to boot—but honestly, the first half hour and the last fifteen minutes are all you really need to watch. And though I wish it were not the case, here are a few things that you could do to pass about an hour in the middle and still not miss a beat:

  • Change into your exercise clothes, lace up your runners, and meander on down to the store to purchase the ingredients to make Rice Krispie treats
  • Whip up a batch of Rice Krispie treats
  • Eat Rice Krispie treats while watching two episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine
  • Look up hilarious blooper reels of Brooklyn Nine-Nine

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

13hours

This was nothing if not a Michael Bay film, and I unabashedly love Michael Bay films. I also love movies based on true stories, films about heroism, brotherhood, and war, and a lot of action, so this movie got two thumbs way way up from me. Not to mention John Krasinski’s talent and general appearance.
