New to On Demand: Sully

It was a cold morning in January 2009 as US Airways Flight 1549 prepared for takeoff. The flight was scheduled to travel from New York’s LaGuardia Airport to Charlotte, N.C. A seemingly normal morning for Capt. Chesley Sullenberger was about to turn into something that was anything but ordinary. Once airborne, the plane encountered a flock of birds and both engines lost thrust. What happened next is a story that is nothing short of miraculous, hence the nickname it was given: the “miracle on the Hudson.” But few know the story of the aftermath of the water landing. Sully, from […]

If they succeed, they will get time knocked off the lengthy sentences they are serving. If they fail, they can be disavowed and eliminated.

New to On Demand: Finding Dory

As an audience, we love to revisit characters that we have enjoyed in past films; we just hope that filmmakers don’t tarnish that love when making a sequel.

Ellen DeGeneres returns as the voice of our favorite blue tang fish, Dory. We walk through Dory’s past, from her days […]

New to On Demand: Star Trek Beyond

Growing up in the era that I did, you were either a Star Trek or Star Wars person. I have to admit that I fell into the Star Wars camp more than I was a Trekkie. Since producer/director J.J. Abrams rebooted Star Trek in 2009, I’ve enjoyed both franchises. Now Justin Lin jumps in to helm Star Trek Beyond and his foot is planted square on the gas pedal from the moment the film blasts off. Capt. James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) has something on his mind. He is questioning whether to continue in his role as captain of the […]
