God Awful. This is like looking at an outlet on the wall and you know if you stick a fork in it you are going to fry yourself to death and you do it anyway. I knew this movie was going to be terrible but I watched it anyway.  To call this movie stupid is an upgrade for this movie. The movie is just laughable, it’s another example of expert marksmen who never miss vs inept soldiers who never hit. This movie is just a complete waste of time, and I’m a fan of action movies!!! This movie is just boring and in your face with unrealistic stunts and explosions that made me yawn. I do not recommend this movie for anyone! The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!

 

Shot Caller (2017)

Good. Pipe from the borough checks in with a movie that by title alone I thought was going to be garbage. I should know better because Pipe only checks in with solid recommendations. Great acting and a very good plot with no real star power here. This film is not for the faint of heart because it’s very violent, but the violence is necessary. This is surly one of the best movies I’ve never heard of. Are there some parts of the plot that stretch a little thin?? Sure there are, but you have to just go with it. Job well done Pipe. I don’t want to give away too much but hey Pipe, how about this for a title “Beast meets Money”??? I think that’s much better than Shot Caller. I definitely recommend this movie. Thanks again for the solid recommendation Pipe and please keep them coming!!

 

Ghost in the Shell (2017)

God Awful.  First off I want to welcome the Cinematic Explorer 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 is so Holly Wood it hurts!!! How are Japanese people not offended that the lead role was not cast by a Japanese person? I get that Scarlett Johansson brings the heat but she is a complete miscast for this role. There are some nice special effects here but nothing you have not already seen before. If you want something more than mindless dummed down lowest common denominator futuristic action adventure garbage, give Ex Machina a shot. It’s much better than this. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!!

 

Queen of the Desert (2017)

God Awful.  I don’t think I can articulate just how boring of a movie this is. Off that bad I hate James Franco, but I decided to give it a go anyway, but this was just boring from start to finish. There was not one interesting point in the entire film. I think the target audience is for someone even older than me, and even still the movie was torture. Actually the camels did a good job in the movie, but that’s it. Do yourself a favor and avoid this movie at all costs and you’ll thank me later. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken.

 

Brian’s Song (1971)

Ok. This comes to us from Rockin Ronnie from Smithtown, and we all know how the Mobile Movie Man feels about classic movies. I really not a fan of them at all. The cinematography directing, acting, and writing are all cheesy in my opinion. I have not seen a lot of classics for this reason. I argue all the time that horses are a form a transportation too but are they great??  I get that this was an attempt to break down racial barriers at this time. It also shows that it’s ok to truly love a member of the same sex in a different way and not be classified as being gay. These are all taboo topics for that period of time. Even still I would still rather watch something current. Hate me or love me for this, but that’s how I feel and I’m always going to give you my honest opinion. Rockin Ronie, thanks for the recommendation, but this was just not for me. Please keep them coming but let’s just try to recommend movies that came out after I was born. Thanks! The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!! Good day!!

 

Morgan (2016)

Fair at best.  This is what he have for full length feature films these days. This is basically a glorified cable TV movie. The issue I had with the movie is that the characters were just so under developed that I really didn’t care about them at all. The movie gets going quickly and the setup is minimal. That is not necessarily a bad thing, but it was here because I was not fully invested just yet. Another thing that bothered me is that some of the wooden characters had chances to stop the carnage but they instead just choose to do nothing. That was so dumb. The premise was somewhat interesting it was just that there is really no story here. For what it is…it’s fairly well done but what it is, is not that much so do yourself a favor sand see something else. Your time will be better spent. The Mobile Movie Man has spoken!!

 

Sour Grapes (2016)

Good.  This one comes to us from Franky Dank formally of the Upper East Side.  This is an interesting story that I knew nothing about. The Mobile Movie Man loves a hustle and Rudy Kurniawan was a straight up HUSTLER. This is a story about the wine market and counterfeit high end super expensive wines. The journey is a fascinating journey, and the director saves some of the best details until the very end. At that point you realize that when you thought you deep into the tale, it turns out what you had so far was merely a taste. Solid recommendation Franky Dank, and please keep just the good ones coming!!
