Lights Out (2016)

Ok. Now we all know the Mobile Movie Mans least favorite genera is Horror, but as far as horror movies go this one is ok. The plot is thin and the movie is not really scary. It relies more on jump scares instead of actual substance. The movie ends without leaving the door open for a sequel but I was doing some digging on the movie and it cost 5MM to make and made almost 70MM. So you know what that means don’t you???? They are already getting the sequel together. Not sure how, but there was enough interest there so here they go. If you are a horror fan then you will like this. I didn’t hate it but I was just hoping for something a little better and less predictable. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken! Good day.

 

Get Out (2017)

Good. I hope everyone had a nice Fourth of July Holiday. Mine was excellent and now it’s back to work kids!!! The Worm checks in with another solid recommendation. Now we all know that the Mobile Movie Man’s least favorite genera is Horror, but this was a little different and I liked it over all. When I watch a horror film I usually go in expecting the worst and this movie was not bad at all and genuinely suspenseful up until a certain point, then it degenerated into nothing more than a typical slasher horror film, but till then I thought the movie was good. There are a few clever twists and it’s a cut above other horror movies I’ve seen. There are some serious racial undertones here that I can see bothering some people. I walked away feeling the message of the director was that white people are deeply disturbed and not to be trusted. Usually I would be annoyed with the Liberals force feeding their message down our throats but I found it so laughable that this time it didn’t annoy me. If there is a sequel it will probably suck, but this was a solid recommendation, and better than a lot of the garbage out there. Thanks again Worm, and please keep just the good ones coming.

 

The Darkness (2016)

God Awful. First off don’t get fooled when you see Kevin Bacons name here. This movie is terrible. Paul Reisers name should have been a clue this movie was going to be awful. The guy has done squat since Mad about You. Spoilers ahead…..this movie has no idea what it really wants to be. It’s supposed to be a horror movie, and you have a cheating father, and alcoholic mother trying to raise a daughter with bulimia, and a son with autism. I mean could we cram any more sub plots in there?? You all know how I feel about Horror movies in general, but I do give credit where credit is do, and I would have preferred the kind of darkness with my eyes closed instead of watching The Darkness the movie.  I think I’ve wasted enough time about this garbage movie. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!

The Conjuring 2 (2016)

Good. Now when I say the movie is good, you have to compare it to other horror films. Mr.Matt checks in with this solid recommendation. The Mobile Movie Man’s least favorite genre is Horror, so I had no intention of watching this movie at all untill Mr.Matt brought this to my attention. You have to be able to suspend your belief a little, but what I like about these two movies is you have characters to root for, and they are based on true stories.  This movie is different than the original. It’s not exactly a sequel, but more of another movie with the same characters sort of like when Morgan Freeman would play Alex Cross in all of the James Patterson movies. I don’t think this is as good as the original but I think its good enough to appeal to viewers like me who don’t typically watch horror films. Good story line and plenty of scares throughout the movie. Solid recommendation Mr.Matt. Please keep just the good ones coming.

 

The Purge: Election Year (2016)

Ok.  The reason I watched this is I had seen the others so I was pot committed. I liked the original the most because it was a fresh new idea. The second was just a chance to cash in on the success of the original, and I get that. The third one was just ok in my opinion. The director here is surly a top of the line liberal as he takes shots at the rich, whites, the catholic church, the NRA, and probably some more that I can’t think of off the top of my head. This movie in particular takes the problem of elitism vs the rest of the world and distorts into a black vs white, wealthy vs poor, right vs left. It annoys me because the premise is good but I the force feeding of liberals in liberal lands political message might be a little bit too much for some of you out there, but if you have the other two then you will no doubt see this one as well. The movie is not great but it’s not god awful either like Keanu, so buyer beware. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!

 

Don’t Breathe (2016)

Very Good. This is one of Mr.Matt’s best recommendation to date. I went into this movie blind lol and I had a feeling I was not going to like it because I thought it was a horror movie, but this is anything but a horror movie. This is what I would call a high octane thriller. It’s a violent thriller that I enjoyed from start to finish. What I really liked most was its fresh original take that is too few and far between these days with all of the lazy liberals in Hollywood. The premise of the movie is very basic. It’s basically about a bunch of teenagers being terrorized by a weirdo ex-marine. So they start with non-original basic premise, but with a few very clear character modification, the filmmakers are able to inject a whole host of twists and turns in to the movie. The net result is a highly original, very good popcorn thriller. The one piece of advice I would give you is not to read up on the movie and just go see it. You’ll be glad you listened to me. Thanks again for recommending one of the more enjoyable movies I’ve seen this year. Keep it up Mr.Matt!!!

 

The Shallows (2016)

Awful. I hope you all had a good Thanks Giving kids. I saw this movie on an international flight and as awful as the movie was, it was still better than chit chatting with my wife!! I’m going to quote the great Forrest Gump on this movie “Stupid is what stupid does”. Black Lively is smokin hot and they cram as many weggie shots in as they can. No complaints there but movie is about an educated woman who hitches a ride from an unknown male by herself in another country to an unknown beach thru the jungle and surfs by herself in isolated waters….what could go wrong???? Give me a break. They cram a 30 minute plot into 90 minutes. The only great shark movie was Jaws, and everything that followed it was not worth watching. Do yourself a favor and if this happens to be on watch something else and you’ll be glad you did.
