Nobody | Average Guy Movie Review

Hutch Mansell (Bob Odenkirk) is nobody. Just an average guy; he goes to work, comes home to his wife and two kids, and that's about it. That is, until a home invasion causes him to snap. You see, Hutch used to be a government agent, one who specialised in eliminating problems. But in the process of trying to reclaim what was taken from his family, he inadvertently angers the local Russian mob. Now they want blood, and Hutch is more than happy to make them work for it. Imagine if John Wick's wife hadn't died, that they'd had a couple of kids, and John got a job as an accountant. Then fast forward about 15-16 years and you've got yourself Nobody . Yes, with Derek Kolstad on writing duties it doesn't simply look like a John Wick  movie, it practically is one; a home invasion forces an assassin out of retirement, which gets him in trouble with some Russians. Now that you mention it, that does sound oddly familiar. But there are some differences in Nobody 's exec

Back To The Future | Moustache Feature | Movierob's Genre Grandeur

This month on Movierob's Genre Grandeur the topic is our favourite 80's fantasy movies. Well when I heard this, the choice was obvious...Back To The Future! The story of Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox), a teenager who after accidentally being transported 30 years into the past inadvertently prevents his own parents from meeting. Now with his mother infatuated with him instead of his father and is own existence in jeopardy, he has just one week to set things straight and get back to the future. And the adventure didn't stop there, Back To The Future spawned two sequels, an animated TV show, rides at Universal Studios theme parks in California, Florida and Osaka and a multitude of video games.  Click here to check out all the other reviews in this month's Genre Grandeur. Back To The Future (BTTF) is an important movie for me. Not only is it the first movie I remember watching as a kid, I was born in 1985, two weeks after that fateful weekend in October in which t

Going in Style: Average Guy Movie Review

Every now and then, it's nice to sit down and watch a light-hearted movie that isn't going to challenge you. Going in Style is one of those movies, three great actors having a bit of fun. When three old friends; Joe (Michael Caine), Willie (Morgan Freeman) and Albert (Alan Arkin) discover the company they spent decades working for is moving overseas and their pensions are to be dissolved, they face losing everything they've worked for. In order to prevent this from happening, they decide to take matters into their own hands by robbing the bank that's handling the company's transition. Directed by Zach Braff, Going in Style is a remake of the 1979 movie of the same name. It's fair to say this isn't going to win any awards, but does that really matter? In this day and age, the situation the three leads find themselves in is very relatable for far too many people! Now I'm not saying that you should rob a bank when facing financial trouble and neith
