    Film #7 of the Wahlberg-A-Thon

    Having gotten more out of Baltasar Kormakur's Contraband that I was expecting to, I went into 2 Guns with a bit of enthusiasm, something that often hasn't been the case when I've spotted Mr. Wahlberg's name in the cast. I'd seen this twice before, but didn't have much recollection other than Bill Paxton's scene-stealing performance as a crooked CIA Agent.

    2 Guns has plenty going for it, both in terms of a rapid-fire script, a…

    Film # 6 of the Wahlberg-A-Thon

    Film #5 in the Wahlberg-A-Thon

    Now I must admit that I enjoyed this film a lot more than I did on my one and only previous visit nearly seven years ago, and that's becoming a bit of a repetitive theme during this Wahlberg-A-Thon. What can I say, I never thought I'd say it, but Mark Wahlberg was pretty decent in this. Maybe it's the lack of live music during this pandemic, maybe I'm mellowing with the medication I'm taking for…
