Unknown – Or If Only It Had Stayed That Way!

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 […]

The Company Men – or Somebody Please Give Ben Affleck Another Job

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.

Barney’s Version – or Finally, A Serious Movie

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 […]

True Grit – or Give The Kid The Oscar!

Mobile Movie Minute 168 does a redo of John Wayne’s classic True Grit.  Wayne won an Oscar for his performance, but that is not happening here.  Matt Damon is a joke and Jeff Bridges is so irritating I had to cover my ears whenever he opened his mouth.  Hailee Steinfeld on the other hand is […]

The King’s Speech – or Who Knew?

Mobile Movie Minute 167 takes a jaunt down memory lane to 70 years ago when radio was everywhere and the King had to be Kingly.  Tough if you’re George The Sixth and have a speech impediment.  In rushes Geoffrey Rush to save the day for King Colin Firth. [pro-player]http://m.podshow.com/media/5937/episodes/262490/mobilemovie-262490-12-31-2010.m4a[/pro-player] Terrific acting and a good story […]

Tron Legacy – or The Dude Returns In 3D!

Mobile Movie Minute 166 strikes out on xmas eve for our annual movie spectacular.  Tron Legacy is our goodwill tiding for this year, and it’s a tired bit of rehashed tedium, with lots of IMAX 3D goodness. [pro-player]http://m.podshow.com/media/5937/episodes/262006/mobilemovie-262006-12-24-2010.m4a[/pro-player] Jeff Bridges jumped the shark a long time ago, so he’s a write off from the beginning.  […]

The Fighter – or Beat Me Up, Micky!

Mobile Movie Minute 165 hangs out with boxing brothers Marky Mark Wahlberg and sometimes Batman Christian Bale. Terrific film that somewhat explores crack addiction in American, and the underside of pro boxing, as dictated by a dysfunctional family intent on living off the efforts of the baby bother of seven wacko sisters, an older brother […]

RED – or Did Someone Say Die Hard?

Mobile Movie Minute 164 takes a trip down memory lane with a bunch of CIA geezers, itching to get back in the saddle.  And they do, blowing everything up while they’re at it.  Should be good fun, but it’s really a who cares flick.  One thing for sure, it’s not Die Hard. Good thing it […]

Review – NCAA Football 11

NCAA Football 2011 I love NCAA football – Way more than NFL because these guys are playing their asses off for their pride, the school and the chance at getting rich and playing like the rest of the lazy thugs in the NFL. Every year I look forward to the updated release of this title. […]

Review – Starcraft 2: Wings of Liberty

After 12yrs, countless release pushes, a few botched Beta trials and a wildly successful Beta phase, Starcraft 2 has finally come home. Expect no spoilers in the following review because that just wouldn’t be very nice. I was one of the many people worldwide who wandered to their nearest electronics store to pick up the […]
