This Month’s Favourite Inflight Movies According to Jac Goderie – June

KLM travellers get offered special inflight entertainment – movies, for example. These movies are selected by Jac Goderie. Jac is a renowned Dutch film reviewer and KLM inflight entertainment programmer. Every month, he picks his three favourites.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The new film from Hollywood wunderkind Wes Anderson (of The Royal Tanenbaums and more). All his films have proven successful with audiences, critics and at awards time: no surprise since Anderson is a truly independent filmmaker who doesn’t follow the rules. That’s refreshing, though it may take some getting used to. But mark my words, this writer, director and producer is the natural successor to Woody Allen. He will be around for a good long time, making exceptional films.

Endless Love

In 1981, the movie Endless Love was not nearly as big a hit as its title song. Lionel Richie and Diana Ross’s duet was named the greatest song duet of all time. Apparently the song’s enduring success is enough to warrant a remake of the film. Young, fast and modern, it’s everything a movie needs to be. The story: Two young lovers stand up to her father, who will do anything to keep his daughter from ending up with the wrong type of boy. Not smart: does he not know that love conquers all?

The Muppets Most Wanted

Truly a film for everyone – from 8 to 88 – and older and younger. This time around, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest are duped by an unscrupulous Hollywood producer (Ricky Gervais) who takes them on tour in Europe. A Kermit look-alike is, however, in their midst and up to no good. (Why, I wonder, does he have a Russian accent?) The real Kermit is trying to escape from a gulag and a sadistic warden (fantastically played by Tina Fey). Pay special attention to the songs in the film: wonderful parodies of old Hollywood musical numbers.
