Mobile Move Minute 175 goes completely off the rails (see the movie and you’ll know what we mean) as we race to the finish with Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson and hottie Jordana Brewster. Can you believe this thing has turned into a chick flick? The action is all guy town, but the women love that Vin. What am I missing here?
Except for old ladies, this movie fits the bill, with 5 full-on bags of Oh-Vinnie popcorn (even from Cindy) for this non-stop-makes-no-sense action flick. See it, and rent the first, Fast and Furios. Bye, y’all. Eh?
Mobile Movie Minute 174 cracks the code as Jake Gyllenhall is ultimately seduced by hottie Michelle Monaghan and stays back in time. Or not. What? You’ll get it by the second time jump, but you won’t get the sappy chick flick ending. Vera Farmiga is featureless but effective, and Jake is somewhat convincing.
Mobile Movie Minute 173 cruises the streets in a Lincoln as the best business is always conducted from the back seat of a large car. True or what? Remember drive-in theatres? Wouldn’t a Lincoln have been perfect? Yep – but not so much this overly predictable piece of Grisham-like telling of Michael Connelly’s bestseller.
Read the book or see the movie. Don’t do both. Btw, if you don’t read the book, you should know that the mom was attacked by someone in the film. Guess who? The answer is in the book – not the movie. Good cast, Matthew McConaughey is fun but Marisa Tomei looks old and Ryan Phillippe is not believable. William H. Macy (what’s the H. stand for anyway?) is terrific. 2.75 bags of where’s-Perry-Mason-when-we-need-him popcorn.
Mobile Movie 172 finds Staff Sergeant Aaron Eckhart seemingly winning the war in LA all by himself. Well, almost. He has a band of marine roustabouts that need him to survive, but that’s it. And guts. He has a lot of guts. He’s likely the bravest marine ever to grace the silver screen. John Wayne? We don’t think so.
Talk about Hot for Teacher – Cameron Diaz plays the ultimate slacker in this high school comedy. A teacher that drinks, gets high and is on a mission to get a free ride through life by landing the rich substitute (played by former boyfriend Justin Timberlake).
With Jason Segal (Forgetting Sara Marshal), Phyllis Smith (The Office) and Lucy Punch (Dinner for Schmucks) supporting this one – I think we might have a candidate for summer comedy gold.
Mobile Movie Minute 171 finds Liam Neeson lost on the streets of Berlin. Well, his memory is lost, sort of, but not his driving skills. That guy is a badass Bullitt. If you don’t get the reference, rent Bullitt with Steve McQueen. Best car chase scene ever. Bar none. In fact, here it is: http://bit.ly/h4awBA . Liam, on the other hand, and his band of cronies, are Mission Impossible gone bad.

Mobile Movie Minute 170 hits its four year anniversary, but unfortunately hits it at another crappy flick. Rental only for Ben Affleck (who needs to get a life), Tommy Lee Jones, Chris Cooper and Kevin Costner. Now, those guys can act. Ben, listen up and take a few lessons from the pros.
Mobile Movie Minute 169 looks deep into the soul of a tortured man. Why look so deep and why is he tortured? I dunno, and you can’t ask Mordecai Richler – but he is tormented – and it’s highly entertaining. And the movie even features Dustin Hoffman in (finally) a believable role. This is one good flick, so I don’t expect it to appeal to many of our regular listeners. No really, the worse the movie, the higher our downloads. Go figure!
