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 Circle (2017)

Ok. I will say the only thing that makes this movie not god awful is the fact that it is a cautionary tale about what companies like Apple, Facebook, Google, and Microsoft, and what they are doing with all of the personal data they are collecting. The film takes a small idea and then stretches it into a film. There is not much to the film outside of the tiny idea. The acting is weak, and one thing I realized is that Emma Watson cannot carry a full length feature film alone. The one really sad thing here is The Circle was Bill Paxton’s last movie. RIP. The movie is worth watching at some point just to be aware of the possibilities which are actually pretty much possible today, but there is no need to go out of your wat to see this movie.

The Lost City of Z (2017)

Ok. Let me start by saying there is an audience for this movie, it’s just not me. This is a movie based on a book that I didn’t read and it’s an uninteresting story that is far too long, predictable, boring, and tedious to get through.  There are no surprises. Perhaps the book is more interesting than this. I had really high hopes for this movie because I typically like period pieces. The movie is not exciting whatsoever. I was grateful I didn’t see this in the theater because it runs for over 2 hours, and there is only about 20 minutes in the film total that I was really interested in. This film is not the worst thing I’ve ever seen but it’s not something that I can recommend so tread lightly folks. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken.

 

The Intervention (2016)

God Awful.  This is very rare kids and I’m even embarrassed to admit this but The Mobile Movie Man could not even make it through this entire movie. It was just that bad. The real story here is how in the world this movie ever got made in the first place. Every single character in the film is such a clichéd stereotypical character that you could not care less about. The story line is weak and there was not a point in time I felt intrigued or interested from what I saw. Could this movie have gotten better?? It could have, but in my professional opinion this was a train wreck from start to finish and I had to waive the white flag before I got off the train I was on and jumped in front of the next one. I just couldn’t do it anymore. Sorry folks. The movie sucked and was a complete waste of time so don’t bother checking this out. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!

 

Life on the Line (2016)

God Awful. John Travolta should be ashamed by his performance here. His accent was so thick that is was downright laughable. This movie is just that bad guys. Hollywood’s idea of the south is blue collar rednecks. This could have been a decent movie about a profession that we all need and know nothing about but instead it was a horribly cliched BOMB. This is a made for TV movie or even worse, a soap opera. Power line work could have been interesting but instead this movie made them look like a bunch of fools.  Do yourself a favor guys and avoid this one at all costs because it’s a disappointment all around.

American Pastoral (2016)

God Awful. First off I want to welcome Reshoot&Rewind 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 did not grow up in the 60’s or the 70’s so it might not seem fair for me to make these statements but the directing and the feel of this movie seem like the director did not live in this era either. The treatment of subjects like protesting, verbal handicap, and pedophile are just not believable at all. The actors were particularly unsuited and miscast for their roles as well. If you have a couple hours that you simply must waste, then this is your opportunity. Me calling this movie god awful is being kind. Avoid this movie at all costs and you’ll thank me later. Everyone please have a safe Fourth of July Weekend and we will recap next week.

 

A Dog’s Purpose (2017)

Good. This one comes to us from Raul in the BX and I’m a little taken back by this recommendation. I don’t typically look at him like a little girl but I guess I don’t get it because I’ve never owned a dog. As a catholic I don’t believe in reincarnation but it give us a nice story if you can accept that fact. The story is more about how important dogs are to humans and how some humans need them as much as the dogs need the humans. I thought the directing, producing, acting and even the dog training were all excellent. This is a good movie that you can watch with your entire family. Thanks for the solid recommendation Raul and please keep just the good ones coming. The Mobile Movie Movie Man has spoken!
