Fast Five – or The Last Hurrah?

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 […]

The Lincoln Lawyer – or Studebaker, Anyone?

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.

Battle: LA – or WTF?

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? […]

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.

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.  […]
