Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017)

Ok. I was a real fan of the first movie, and the first movie had one of the best movie sound tracks ever. The second was not so great but this was made because the original was so successful. That’s the business aspect of Hollywood. This movie is just so drawn out to the tune of 2 hours and 15 minutes long. This movie should have been edited big time. This movie is probably good for teens but I don’t want to insult teens here.  The special effects are really cool and there are a couple good action sequences but again, the movie is just so dam long. The movie is ok, and it’s entertaining but I was just disappointed because I compared it to the 1st movie which I really liked. If you are a fan of the 1st you will see this for sure but if not, see the first one and call it a day. The Mobile Movie man has spoken!!!

 

All Eyez on Me (2017)

Ok. This movie comes to us from The Worm, whose reputation speaks for its self but this movie could have been so much better. I would have seen this movie anyway but the Worm telling me to see it makes it a no brainer for me. I can relate to this a little better than some of you out there because I was in high school at the time and I remember exactly how these events played out. Straight out of Compton was good and it was like they were trying to cash in on that success as well because they saw how well that did. The movie is definitely a little long and be cut down at least 30 minutes. Would that have made it better? I don’t know. The movie was a long time coming. I’m not so sure that Tupac’s mother would have green lit this movie if she was alive. If you are a fan of Tupac or that type of music you will see it for sure but the story is so so and the best part about the movie is the music. It took me back to a time with no worries and no responsibilities. Over all I was disappointed because this movie should have been so much better than it was. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken.

Good. First off I want to welcome L. Van Ree to the world of followers. Thanks for checking me out, and please drop me a line at either www.themobilemovieman@gmail.com or at https://twitter.com/Mobilemovieman Now I think I’m being a little generous with this rating due to the fact that there is so much garbage out there these days. I know it’s not fair, but movies are trending downward badly and its refreshing to see something that I don’t totally hate. The movie is a typical psychological thriller for 2/3 of the movie, and then the viewer is rewarded in the last 1/3 when it takes an interesting twist. If you are the type of person that needs a lot of bells and whistles like car crashes, blood, and CGI graphics, then this might not be the movie for you. If you are an intellect like myself and like to listen, interpret, and figure things outs, then take a look and I think you will be presently surprised. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!

 

 

Going in Style (2017)

Ok. Of course this is a remake because Hollywood does not have any more original ideas. This is a senior citizen comedy. My dad is in his mid 70’s, so I made a mental note on some of the jokes in the movie that I can use on him at a later date. The movie is nothing special, and completely unbelievable, but there is a TON of talented actors in this. Some of the scenes were overdone, but if you take it for what it is, it’s not god awful. I liked it, but not a lot. I was entertained taking it with a grain of salt, and if you can do that then you might be too. The movie could have been a lot better but I was glad to just make it through and not hate it. Pretty much all you can ask for from the liberals in liberal land these days!

Baywatch (2017)

Good. You have to know what to expect going into this movie. I had such low expectations going in and it actually made me laugh. The Mobile Movie Man was not a Baywatch fan growing up. Don’t get me wrong….I loved the girls on the show. Straight fire on regular TV before you had the internet at your disposal, but I don’t think I ever watched an entire episode. You all know I’m a fan of the Rock, and I like his style of humor. If you can look past the silliness and the give me a break moments this is an easy movie to watch and enjoy. The actor that played Ronnie was hilarious and almost stole the show, epically with the scene that was reminiscent of Something About Mary. All in all this movie was WAY BETTER than I expected, and longer too. If you have your doubts, set them aside and trust The Mobile Movie Man, because this movie is a good laugh. Have I ever steered you wrong?? The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!

Wakefield (2017)

God Awful. This movie is from the main characters point of view. He’s basically saying everyone has thought like he does at some point in their marriage. Actually, I haven’t, so maybe that is why I just don’t get the movie. For me I could never leave a successful career, to a homeless guy scrounging throw dumpsters for food and turning my back on my family. Call me crazy but that’s me. I also don’t buy the conclusion. Do you think the wife would listen to him and by sympathetic and understanding upon his return, or do you think she would call the police and have him taken in for medical observation?  Basically this is a writer’s fantasy run amok. He’s anti city, and anti the suburbs. To me it’s as if he’s anti humanity. This move was a complete waste of time so do yourself a favor and avoid this one at all costs. I took the bullet so you don’t have to. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!! Now run along, Good day!

The Rocker (2008)

Ok. I was on vacation for a little bit kids, but I’m back with avengeance. 1st movie out of the shoot comes to us from Rosie in CT. Let me start by saying that it was not that funny but it was still entertaining. Rainn Wilson, who will forever be Dwight Schrute from the office to me, tries really hard to make this movie rock. It feels like the script and dialogue of the other characters seem to be written by a committee and that kind of brings the movie down a little bit. Christina Applegate brings the heat here and it was cool to see a pre Hangover Bradley Cooper as the wild guitarist in the rival band. The movie definitely does not suck but it’s not great either. Just ok. Thanks for the recommendation Rosie from CT and please keep just the good ones coming. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!
