Fast Five - or The Last Hurrah?

0000-00-00 :: Robert Gold

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 …

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 Farmi…

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 o…

Mobile Movie Minute 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…

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 c…

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 Hoff…

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 mo…

The King's Speech - or Who Knew?

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 s…

Milk - or Man, That Sean Can Act!

0000-00-00 :: Robert Gold

Mobile Movie Minute 104 was a long time coming.  The story takes place 30 years ago, and it's like watching history unfold.  Terrific acting by Sean Penn, great historical film footage, and you've got 4.7 bags of make-mine-rainbow popcorn.  Sorry,…

The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button - or Brad, How Cute Are You?

0000-00-00 :: Robert Gold

Mobile Movie Minute 103 watches old man Brad turn into young hunk Brad, turn into baby Brad.  What a feat!  Terrific anti-aging story with a love story of depth and tenderness.  And good sex - but sorry, no nudity.  4.5 bags of tear-jerker popcor…

Valkyrie - or Tom, You're Always You

Mobile Movie Minute 102.  Man, we see a lot of movies.  Tom takes on Adolph.  Good idea, good story, good execution, except the plan fails.  Hmmm.  Who knew?  3 bags of don't-colour-me-nazi popcorn for Tom and The A Team.

Frost/Nixon - Redux. And We Still Don't Like Him

Mobile Movie Minute 101 (2), as another mobile reviewer steps into the fray.  Neither Frost, Nixon, nor Howard does any better this time around.  Sorry, Dick - it's just not working out for you.  You're a bad man.  Very bad.

Frost/Nixon - or Don't Be Fooled. He Really Wasn't That Sympathetic

0000-00-00 :: Robert Gold

Mobile Movie Minute 101.  Second Century.  This flick goes back almost 30 years to tell a story worth telling, but trust me, Tricky was not that likeable or sympathetic.  I think Ron glossed him over somewhat.  Well acted, and well researched, we…

Mobile Movie Minute 100.  Can you believe it?  Almost two years in the making and flick number 100 was worth the wait.  Listen to the show to see if you're a winner of the great We Made It To 100 Contest.  If you ever contacted us, you just might…

Gran Torino - or Dirty Harry Is Back, Sort Of

0000-00-00 :: Robert Gold

Mobile Movie Minute 99 finds Dirty Harry retired and in an old folks village.  Well, not quite.  Cliint's a retired Ford assembly line worker, and he's not in a retirement home.  But he's tough, he's kind, he's racist, he's mouthy and he's fun.  …

Mobile Movie Minute 98 isn't worth listening to, unless you like a good ole' pugilistic, knock-him-down review.   The three ride-a-longs come out swinging and drive this inane dog pic to 4.5 bags of who-would-want-this-dog popcorn.  I can't believ…

Mobile Movie Minute 97 is the 2008 Xmas Eve special with our own Xmas Eve co-host.  This flick is a Clark Gable swashbucklng adventure, but with a mouse and a rat.  And the rat turns.  And turns back.  The mouse is amazing.  I see a mountain of …

Rachel Getting Married - or Dysfunctional Who Cares?

Mobile Movie Minute 95 attempts to marry-off one tedious flick, but Cindy wouldn't go on her own.  Too bad, 'cause this is one tedious, dysfunctional group of crazies.  You'll like Anne, but you'll dislike or pity everyone else.  Not to be confuse…

Mobile Movie Minute 90 (another milestone, baby!) takes our panel of four to one strange flick, but what a great fable.  Dead people, depressing/dour dentist, a heroine that's so easy to fall for, and a pain-in-the-ass dead main character.  But - i…
