Things I Like: The Aviator (2004 film)

I remember hearing about The Aviator back in 2004, but especially back then I’ve never really liked Leonardo DiCaprio. But things change.

The movie starts with Howard Hughes’ early life. He leaves his home-state of Texas and moves to California with the purpose of making films. One of his first movies was very challenging and many believed that he would never finish. Despite many obstacles, he not only completes his work but it’s a great success.

But Howard Hughes also was an avid pilot. He didn’t just want to fly planes, but he also wanted to make them as well. He starts his own company which makes aircraft for the common people and the U.S. military. He also dates many notable celebrities like Katharine Hepburn, Faith Domergue, and Ava Gardner.

The Aviator was pretty much as I expected it to be. A very good film about the life of one of the most interesting people to ever live. Though I believe they portray him as too likable, even though you can tell he was never a saint. Cate Blanchett won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Katharine Hepburn, and I will say she is amazing in the movie. Though I will say the movie doesn’t really get into the later half of Hughes’s life, which is a bit disappointing.
