Men In Black: International | Average Guy Movie Review

After a close encounter during her childhood, Molly Wright (Tessa Thompson) begins searching for the mysterious agency that polices alien life on Earth. Twenty years later, when she finally manages to track them down, she's able to avoid the wrong end of a neuralyser, bartering instead for employment. For her first assignment, O (Emma Thompson) sends her to the London branch, where she will be working with Agents H (Chris Hemsworth) and High T (Liam Neeson) to uncover a mole in the MIB - a first for the agency. But will they be able to find them in time to stop an invasion of Earth by a hostile alien race? After the popularity of Thor: Ragnarok and the genius pairing of Hemsworth and Thompson, many fans - including myself - were excited to see the pair reunite for a reboot/sequel to the Men In Black franchise. They may be playing vastly different characters to those seen in Ragnarok - a rogue who skates by more on luck than skill, and a logic driven/obsessed geek - but that

Cold Pursuit | Average Guy Movie Review

After his son is murdered, Nels Coxman (Liam Neeson) - a snowplow driver in the ski resort of Kehoe - begins targeting the drug dealers he believes are responsible. But things get more complicated when Nels' actions spark a war between two rival gangs. With bodies dropping all over town and the cops closing in, will Nels get a shot at his ultimate target? Based on "In Order of Disappearance" and directed by Hans Petter Moland (the director of  In Order of Disappearance) comes an action/revenge thriller with a lot of dark humour. Now  I know what you're thinking...Liam Neeson in an action/revenge thriller, this must be Taken 4. Well that's actually a lot further from the truth than it sounds. Which for one thing, means Cold Pursuit doesn't feature a really cool phone call scene. I'm not sure how that would go either; "I don't know who you are. I don't know what you want...I can tell you I don't have money. But what I do have are a

MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL | Moustache Trailer Reaction

The first trailer for Men in Black International has been released, and we decided to share our thoughts. If you haven't seen the trailer yet, you can check it out below.  First things first, that is an impressive cast! Chris Hemsworth, Tessa Thompson, Liam Neeson, Emma Thompson (that "Johnson and Johnson" joke from Die Hard comes to mind), Kumail Nanjiani, Rebecca Ferguson, and those are just the ones we've seen so far. Knowing this franchise we can at least expect a few interesting cameos. It was good to see Emma Thompson return after her appearance in MIB 3. Hopefully she'll get a bigger role this time. We know Hemsworth can do funny after his performances is Ghostbusters (2016) - he was arguably the best thing about it - and Thor Ragnarok. In fact, he looks very comfortable in his new role as Agent H - maybe a little too comfortable at one point. He and Tessa Thompson worked really well together in Ragnarok, and it looks like the magic will c

Widows | Average Guy Movie Review

The lives of four women are threatened when their husbands are killed during the course of a robbery gone wrong. The men they robbed want their money back - all $2 million of it - and they're holding the widows responsible. The only chance these women have of clearing the debt is to pull off their husband's next job. There's just one problem, they've never done anything like this before. Writer/Director Steve McQueen, in his first project as director since 2013's 12 Years A Slave - and with the help of co-writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) - has managed to catch lightning in a bottle once again. Widows is a tense and gritty thriller in which crime, politics and corruption are entwined in a web of deception and betrayal. McQueen and Flynn have created a criminal underworld befitting the Chicago setting. It's shiny exterior hides the rotten core in which those with power feed on the weak. Now you might think that sounds like an average day where

A Million Ways To Die In The West | Average Guy Movie Review | Movierob's Genre Grandeur

For Movierob 's Genre Grandeur on Western Crossovers, I am looking at Seth MacFarlane's guide to surviving the old west for all those who aren't Clint Eastwood, A Million Ways To Die In The West. It follows Albert Stark (MacFarlane), a sheep herder on the frontier who seems to be the only person that sees the west for what it is; a dangerous, disease infested, unforgiving shit hole. "Hell, this was Miss America in 1880... ..."Holy Shit!"  After his girlfriend dumps him, Albert prepares to leave his hometown of Old Stump for San Francisco. But his plans are interrupted by the arrival of Anna (Charlize Theron), who shows him how to enjoy life. Unfortunately for Albert, Anna is married to Clinch Leatherwood (Liam Neeson), one of the most dangerous outlaws in the territory and he's none too happy about Albert spending time with his wife! The story for A Million Ways To Die In The West began as a joke between MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Welles
