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!!

Kong: Skull Island (2017)

Fair at best. From the start you know what you’re getting yourself into with this movie. The story is weak but the only saving grace from this movie being god awful is the superior special effects. The fight scenes are awesome. Watching the movie the following thoughts went through my mind….dumb, corny, are terrible acting. Hollywood needs to come up with some new original ideas and stop rehashing the same old stuff. An old movie with new special effects is still the same old movie just in a shiny new package. Movies like this are why I rarely go to the movies anymore. Considering the complete pieces of garbage Hollywood has been putting out in recent years it’s no wonder why big time movie stars are running to do TV shows instead of movies. Video stores went out of business, and next it’s the movie theaters that will be out of business as well. People like me save a few bucks and save gas by getting the movie in the mail a few months later. It’s very rare there is something that I want to go out and see. Very sad. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!! Good day!

 

 

The Hunter’s Prayer (2017)

Ok. I’ve seen this story many times over the years in various forms. A hired assassin can’t go through with killing his next assignment. Then his boss puts a hit out on both of them, and they are on the run trying to escape assassin after assassin. Despite the formulaic plot and the wooden dialogue I was interested enough to see it through. Some of you might wave the white flag at some point but the action is good if you can suspend your disbelief. I am a fan of action so I might be a little biased here but it’s a decent rental and you can do way worse than The Hunter’s Prayer. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!! Good day!

 

F8: The Fate of the Furious (2017)

Ok. I’m pot committed with this franchise. I was anxious to see how they would continue without Paul Walker and there is just something missing here. They introduce Charlize Theron as a villain and she was so over the top bad, and not in a good way. The story line here is very painful and ridiculous. There were some good stunts and special effect which you come to expect with these movies but I’m starting to think it’s time to put this franchise out of its misery. This used to be about thieves racing cars, but now it’s about guys saving the world. I don’t know, but I have a hard time looking at Ludacris as being some computer geek who writes code? Seriously???  If you have seen them all then you will no doubt see this one as well. There is a lot of action. Some believable, and some not, but thank god for the special effects because that save this film for me from being a complete bomb. Thread lightly with this one because I’m putting it up there with the second film, and we all know how bad that one was. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken! Good day!

 

London Heist (2017)

God Awful. How in the world did this movie make it into my Netflix queue?? Was this some type of joke? Heist movies are typically good and easy to pull off. How in the world do you screw up this movie you ask? I’ll tell you how….cheap production, D list actors that can’t act, poor editing, poor sound, and no script. That pretty much sums up this movie in a nut shell. This is a perfect example of a movie that goes STRAIGHT TO VIDEO. What a complete waste of time this garbage was. I seriously have to find out how this movie was sent to me. Avoid this movie at all costs because this is easily one of the worst movie I’ve seen this year. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken. Good day!!

 

Logan (2017)

Good.  I got a mixed bag of e mails on this movie. The Mobile Movie Man is not a huge comic book movie guy and I liked it, but coincidentally some hardo Marvel guys hated this so go figure. Was this a sell out? I don’t know, all I know is I waited a while to see this one and I was pretty sure I was not going to like this one. The franchise comes full circle here and It starts out quick and never loses its pace throughout the entire movie. I will tell you that I was glad that I went into this movie blind because there are some parts that I didn’t expect and was pretty surprised. The writing was good, the acting was good, and the special effects were right on. Not too much, just the right amount of CGI. I think I liked this because it seemed like a different take on these superhero movies. I don’t want to spoil anything but I walked away feeling sometimes even when you win you still lose if that makes sense. I will tell you that there is a reason it’s rated R….there is a ton of violence and a lot of foul language so tread lightly letting little ones watch this. This is better than a lot of the crap out there so you can definitely do way worse than Logan!

 

Altitude (2017)

Fair at best.  First off I want to welcome BlookUp 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 we can debate if this movie is god awful or fair at best all day long. I guess I’m being a little generous because I love action movies but either way there is no reason to go out of your way to see this one. What in the world happened to Denise Richards face? This girl used to be straight fire back when the movie Wild Things came out. I’m talking 105 MPH heat. Now she looks like she has a permeate frown on her face after way too much plastic surgery. The plot here has been down before and much better I will add. It’s extremely predictable with no character build up and the acting is horrible across the board. There is some good action and that is why I made it through the entire movie so there is something to be said for that but after seeing some of the crap John Travolta has been in of late this movie is worthier of an Oscar nomination compared to those. If this is on I would suggest watching something else, and if there is nothing else on maybe go paint a room in your house and watch it dry. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!
