MILE 22 (2018): New Trailer From Mark Wahlberg, Iko Uwais, Lauren Cohan, John Malkovich…

Mark Wahlberg, Iko Uwais, Lauren Cohan, and John Malkovich are the stars of new action / thriller Mile 22.

Directed by Peter Berg, Mile 22 is the story of an elite American intelligence officer and a top-secret tactical command unit whose job it is to smuggle a mysterious police officer with sensitive information out of the country…

I really want this to be the kind of America / Asia movie hit I’ve been waiting for. I’m most exited for the classic Wahlberg brand of charm and ‘badassery.’ And of course, the impressive Martial art skills of Iko Uwais.

This trailer is definitely longer than it needed to be but the visuals and dialogue are so very promising already… I know it’s a little early to say but I’m thinking that this could be my ‘trailer of the week’.

Ronda Rousey, Sala Baker and Terry Kinney also star.

Mile 22 Release Dates: August 3rd, 2018 (US), August 10th, 2018 (UK)…

All The Money In The World is the story of a left-wing paramilitary organization in Italy, that hatched a massive kidnapping plot in the 1970s. Directed by Ridley Scott; Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Michelle Williams and Timothy Hutton star…

To save one’s grandson and let the world know that you negotiate with terrorists or sacrifice your grandson so that no one ever thinks that they can demand and receive a ransom from you ever again.

Whatever Mr. Getty does or doesn’t do, it should be very interesting to watch, especially with such a talented and super engaging cast.

All The Money In The World Release Dates: December 22nd, 2017 (US); January 5th, 2018 (UK)…

DADDY’S HOME 2 (2017): New Trailer From Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell, Mel Gibson, John Lithgow, John Cena…

The first Daddy’s Home (2015) movie starring Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell and Linda Cardelilni featured a ‘cool biological dad versus new and not so cool stepdad’ dynamic between Ferrell and Wahlberg. For the Sean Anders directed sequel, the same dynamic remains, except this time Ferrell and Wahlberg’s characters are the best of friends but their dads played by Mel Gibson and John Lithgow are not quite that…

 

The original movie was OK and featured some memorable scenes. I’ll be tuning in this time for much of the same and hopefully more. I already love the kiss between Lithgow and Ferrell’s characters.

Daddy’s Home 2 Release Dates: November 10th, 2017 (US); November 22nd, 2017 (UK)…

TRANSFORMERS – THE LAST KNIGHT (2017): New Trailer From Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins…

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Anthony Hopkins, Stanley Tucci and directed by Michael Bay, the trailer for the fifth Transformers movie, Transformers – The Last Knight is here…

I loved the first Tranformers film; the one that starred Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox. The second instalment was so disappointing that I haven’t yet been able return to the franchise. Maybe I’ll  tune in because of the special effects and Anthony Hopkins – but really, I think this may be a movie most ideal for those who love big firery explosions more than the average amount – which of course is absolutely fine.

Transformers  – The Last Knight Release Dates: June 23rd, 2017 (US & UK)…

DADDY’S HOME (2015): The Thing I liked…

This is how I answer the question of whether or not to watch the stepdad / biological dad comedy, Daddy’s Home. It stars Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell, a pair who have shown great onscreen chemistry in the past. For example, 2010’s The Other Guys.

Daddy’s Home won’t ask too much of you except that you sit down, relax, and accept a few laughs. Generally speaking, you’ll be ok as long as you don’t mind the absence of surprises plot-wise.

The best thing about the movie, for me is the onscreen chemistry and verbal sparring between the two lead actors. If you love Farrell and or Wahlberg, you’ll probably watch the movie regardless. So to that I say, enjoy and I’m excited for you about Daddy’s Home 2, release date November 2017.

DEEPWATER HORIZON (2016): New Trailer Starring Mark Whalberg, Dylan O’brien & Kate Hudson

Deepwater Horizon is the latest from Mark Wahlberg, the story about the explosion of the drilling rig that caused the worst oil spill in US history…

Teaser trailer

I like what they’ve done concept wise with this teaser trailer, though I don’t find myself particularly excited about the movie at this point. Perhaps the release of the non-teaser will change that – and it has…

No doubt the ending will be heroic. I’m really hoping that Gina Rodriguez’s character doesn’t die.

John Malkovich, Kate Hudson, Kurt Russell and Dylan O’brien also star.

Deepwater Horizon Release Dates: September 30th, 2016 (US & UK); September 29th, 2016 (GER); October 12th, 2016 (FR)…

MOJAVE (2015): There’s Something I Liked…

Mojave (2015), Garrett Hedlund
Mojave (2015), Garrett Hedlund

My favourite thing about Mojave is the bass in Garret Hedlund’s voice. The  general story had potential, but in the end it didn’t turn out as well as it could have. My main issue is with the plausibility of aspects of the story and the general overuse of the word ‘brother.’

The only reason I don’t completely regret watching Mojave is Garrett Hedlund. Can someone please cast him to star in a well scripted and executed movie? I ask because I believe in his acting abilities, not just so I can enjoy listening to him speak.

As for Oscar Isaac… I can’t say I loved his performance here. But, he was good in Ex Machina (2015). So there’s that…

Watch Mojave if you really, really must. The only other reason I can think of is if you want to find out just how much truth is in everything I’ve said about Garrett Hedlund. Or maybe you want to count how many times the word ‘brother’ is said. The answer is way more than you’d ever want to hear.

Director William Monahan is also responsible for the unfortunate script and Mark Wahlberg makes an appearance.

MOJAVE (2015): New Trailer Starring Garrett Hedlund & Oscar Isaac

In the latest thriller starring Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund, I noticed a few things…

Written and directed by William Monahan, it’s the choice of music that stood out first and not necessarily in a bad way.

I like aspects of the editing and the bass in Hedland’s voice. Though, I am a  tad concerned by what seems to be excessive usage of the word ‘brother.’

My fingers are crossed that Mojave works. Hedlund’s character is interesting to me. I just wonder what the final conclusion will be on Isaac’s performance.

Mark Wahlberg and Dania Ramirez also star.

Release Date (s): January 22nd, 2016 (US)…
