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!!

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!!

 

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!!!

 

John Wick: Chapter 2 (2017)

Ok.  First off I want to welcome Havau22 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 this recommendation comes to us from Jackson Heights own, Jewels. This plays to my love for action movies and there is plenty to go around. I thought the 1st one was ok and I think I’m being very generous here with an ok rating because there is less of a plot and way more killing if you can believe that. I think Keanu Reeves pulls off this character well because they keep his lines to a minimum, but I was hoping for a little more character development here. What made the 1st movie interesting was the back story. The development of Wick and the unknown with how people deal with hearing his name. This movie is just a continuation of the 1st movie. John Wick One went too far, but not in a bad way. Wick 2 went way too far and is just a bubble gum action flick missing the emotion of the true revenge he felt the 1st time. This is all setting up for the bubble to burst in the 3rd installment. This movie is not god awful, but it’s not great either. If you saw the 1st you will see this one and after seeing this one you are pot committed and will have no choice but to see the third. Thanks for the recommendation Jewels, and please keep only the good ones coming. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!

 

Solace (2016)

Good. Anthony Hopkins is usually great in anything he is in, and he plays a psychic cop called out of retirement to solve a serial killer case.  The female cop is not a very good actress at all. I thought she was completely miscast. I wish there had been more of Colin Farrell and Jeffery Dean Morgan and less of her but the scenes that these guys are in were good and riveting. This was a solid thriller and kept me locked and loaded for the entire movie. The screen just comes alive whenever Hopkins is on it, and it was the early part of the story that interested me. As the story starts to unfold it turned out to be a supernatural thriller with an interesting twist. Solid choice on any movie night if you can just go with the whole supernatural angle, you won’t be disappointed. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!

 

The Whole Truth (2016)

Good. I’m a little biased here because courtroom drama is my favorite genera hands down. This is an entertaining and suspenseful who done it film. Did I figure out the plot fairly early? Yes. Did I figure out the twist at the end? Yes. Will you do the same? Maybe. I’m a professional that’s why I could see it coming from a mile away lol. The drama unfolds like a good John Grisham novel. That being said it’s a slow burn kind of movie. I thought the acting was solid even with Keanu Reeves wooden performance as always, and I was entertained for the entire 90 minutes I put into this movie. What more can you ask for these days?  Give this one a shot and you’ll be glad you did. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!
