Cast Away (2000)

Tom Hanks was nominated for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the 73rd Academy Awards, in this movie from director Robert Zemeckis. But he did won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor-Motion Picture-Drama in the 2001 Golden Globe Awards ceremony.

FedEx. The biggest mailing company in the world, as a time management engineer had to be in countries, for several FedEx locations. By making sure that packages arrive on time. But during Christmas holiday of 1995, he was unexpectedly called in for a situation to fix in Malaysia. He had to leave. Unfortunately, his FedEx mailing cargo plane lost control in a violent storm in the South Pacific Ocean, and was crashed down at sea.

All the crew were dead, except for the engineer. He was the only survivor. Washed up an uncharted island, miles from civilization, with no sign of rescue. He got injured a bit, trying to escape, and how he need to make a fire. But came to no avail. And from the moment that he had to knock out an aching tooth out of his gums, he became isolated on that island for four years long.

Four years had passed, as he changed differently. However, he was able to make it back home, to Memphis, Tennessee, USA. Everyone were glad he returned. Some of his family and friends thought that he was long dead at sea. His fiancé too, who got married with someone else. And with this movie, this had inspired every single TV & movie creator on Earth. To do some parodies or spoofs of this survival movie, with less dialogue.

Tom Hanks and Helen Hunt were the only two stars in this movie, that I only know. However for Helen Hunt, she was a better girlfriend to Bill Paxton for how the way they did in the movie, “Twister”. On chasing tornadoes, and looking at the dark side of nature. I sometimes do feel very sorry for her in some time. For what happened to Bill Paxton, when he died of heart surgery in 2016. But ever since Phillip Seymour Hoffman was in “Twister”, “The Hunger Games” movies and his death in 2014, I’m sure he and Bill Paxton are together in heaven now ever since they met in that 1996 tornado movie. But like Helen Hunt, I sure am gonna miss those two actors.

With herself and Tom Hanks in that emotional survival movie, 8/10 stars is what I give.

And for what happened in cartoons and animated movies related to this here, I won’t let Seth McFarlane and Matt Groening do more shit related to this famous film. “Lord of the Flies”? Both the book and those movie adaptions? They sure can. No blood, violence and killing really.
