FOTEP Movie Reviews




Just because it stars underwear model Mark Wahlberg, don't discount this film.

The title roll is Bob Lee Swagger (Wahlberg). Swagger is out of the army and living his own life, isolated from as much of the rest of the world as he can manage.

The problem is, when he was in the army, he was a sniper and a very good one.

So, when the Secret Service needs the expertise of a really good shooter, his name comes up and he's pressed into service: protecting the President of the United States by figuring out how the president is going to be killed by persons as yet unknown.

That is the easy part. When things go sour and the attempt on the president's life is too close to the plan Swagger comes up with, Swagger becomes the suspect and the subject of an extensive nation-wide manhunt.

Now things are only starting to get bad.

This movie is an action thriller that keeps you going and keeps you guessing.

IMDB Score: 7.2/10
Amazon Score: 4.3/5

Fight Club

Buyer's Advice: Get the two-disk collector's edition, it is less expensive than the one-disk widescreen verion

I know it is cliche, but Fight Club is a great movie.

What do an office drone with no name and premium soap dealer Tyler Durden have in common? Well, nothing until our office drone's apartment blows up and he (known only as the narrator) moves in with Tyler and the rest of his life spins out of control.

The plot keeps you guessing until the end and the movie goes way beyond the titular Fight Club.

IMDB Score: 8.7/10
Amazon Score: 4.5/5

The Complete Adventures of Indiana Jones


Buyers hint: All four movies, in Blu-Ray format are slightly less than DVDs of each movie.

The run of these movies isn't entirely even but Indiana Jones has quite a following because the movies are well done.

Surely you've seen at least a couple, well it's time to go back to the beginning and follow the exploits of this archeologist cum college professor cum soldier of fortune (or at lease antiquities).

Indiana Jones (Indy to his friends) travels the world and enrages natives and the spirits in his hunt for treasures that are meant to be on display instead of used by the Nazis to bring down the might of God or whatever those pesky Germans are up to.

And in the latest episode, Indy has to jump back into action to save the world from the Soviet threat.

Indiana Jones is the modern form of the 50's adventure serials. He's bigger than life, his foes are the nastiest on Earth and it's not just about collecting antiques, Indy's saving the world by getting there first (for the good guys).

IMDB Score: 6.6 to 8.7/10
Amazon Score: 4.7/5
