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 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!

 

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.

 

Unforgettable (2017)

No Bueno. First off I want to welcome Jennifer Anne Swick to the world of followers. Thanks for checking me out girl, and please drop me a line at either www.themobilemovieman@gmail.com or at https://twitter.com/Mobilemovieman Now let me start by saying that I have seen better Lifetime movies than this. It’s so predictable. Ex-wife goes psycho on her ex’s girlfriend. There is really no suspense to the movie at all. It’s just annoying. Hollywood is really running out of ideas it seems. Guys I’m going to keep this one short and sweet, poorly written and poorly acted. Not much more than I can say about this one. Unforgettable is totally forgettable. Save you time and watch something else. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!

 

Imperium (2016)

Fair at best. . First off I want to welcome faydelmix1979@mylittlesimplethought 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 made it through the entire movie and it’s not god awful, but you definitely have to suspend your belief level to make it through this movie.  I can see anti Trump supporters liking this movie. This is another Hollywood propaganda piece, transparent to all who have eyes to see. If you can overlook or are completely oblivious to all of that, then you might like this movie. I have a hard time looking at Daniel Radcliffe as anything other than Harry Potter. His attempt at as a Nazi was so unbelievable to me that its laughable to me. The white supremacists are just so over the top and stupid. The movie is full of every liberal stereotype of white supremacists and people involved in the movement. This movie is clearly written and produced by guilty white liberals. Is this movie good, not at all, but is it god awful?? It might be to some of you but I have seen way worse this year than Imperium so tread lightly folks. If you want to see a very good movie about the same topic that would probably be in my top 10 of movies all time, check out American History X with the great Edward Norton. That is MUCH better.

Zero Days (2016)

Fair at best. First off I want to welcome Simple Ula 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 those of you that read me on a consistent basis know that I do not like someone’s view force fed to me.  This is just a dishonest documentary with a clear agenda in favor of President Obama and the Iran deal against Israel. The director goes from speaker to speaker to explain “Stuxnet”, he identifies people who are mostly members of the intelligence community. The main speaker throughout is a woman whose identity is shielded who explains that she was employed by the government to help create the virus that targeted the Iranian centrifuges. The documentary is entirely too long but this woman gives the most compelling and dammining testimony but them confesses in the last 60 seconds to be a completely fictional composite represented by an actress. All of the allegations may be 100% accurate, but we’ll never know because the director could not persuade a real witness to come forward. There are better things to watch instead of this fake news.
