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

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.

Happy Film Loving 🙂

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 definitely 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 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)…
