‘Patty’s Pick’s’: Collide, Bullet Train and Thirteen Lives – WISH-TV | Indianapolis News | Indiana Weather

Lots of action, drama and comedy in “Patty’s Picks” this week, plus a movie based on real events. Patty has 3, count them, 3 movies to watch today… ok GO!

1) ‘Collide’

Jim Gaffigan, our comedian friend in love with Hoosier, is one of the stars of “Collide”. And he’s not funny in this movie.

He is very serious in a heartbreaking role. He discovers that his wife is cheating on him when he observes her outside a restaurant in Los Angeles one evening. Two other couples are also emerging as these 6 people discover that fate has an explosive conclusion to their evening. Rated R for some languages, 1h30. Opens today in limited theaters, then digital on August 12.

Because Jim tackled such a serious role and was totally believable, I’ll give it 3 out of 5 stars.

2) “High-speed train”

The end of the line is only the beginning, that’s what ‘Bullet Train’ claims. Brad Pitt stars as an unlucky and unlikely assassin who is on a mission on the fastest train to Toyoko. But soon he discovers that there are also other deadly opponents on board. Well, let the fighting begin. There are knives, swords, guns, poisons and fist fights galore. But, wait… it’s actually so over the top, it’s funny. This action thriller is rated R, running just over 2 hours. And it’s a wild ride as Brad Pitt proves he’s in great shape to be an action hero again. I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Based on a true story, in Thailand, young boys and their soccer coach are trapped in flooded underground caves…it’s a worldwide effort to try and find and save these souls. ‘Thirteen Lives’ stars Collin Farrell and Viggo Mortensen are two helping divers…directed by Ron Howard…don’t hold your breath!

3) “Thirteen Lives”

Rated PG 13, about 2.5 hours, I was so emotional and anxious throughout the movie. 5 out of 5 stars. It’s truly amazing and a dramatic biography you won’t forget.
