Sully (Blu-ray release 2016-12-20) is mainly about the real-life incident of Captain Sully miraculously landing a passenger plane on Hudson river, saving 155 lives.  Most of the story is about the investigation that comes after it.  If one thinks about it, such investigation is not the ideal content for creating an exciting movie.  Given the nature of it, the fact that this movie is not boring really proves the skill in making this movie.  One technique involved is to break up the whole thing into different time slices and jump back and forth.  It looks strange at first, but will quickly prove to be brilliant.  Tom Hanks delivers an outstanding performance to make the whole thing credible, as usual.
