Movie Pass Adventures: Screen Unseen (mostly unseen)

Did a journey into the unknown lead to Good Vibrations, or was it a Funky Bunch of nothing? Read on to find out!

AMC has a program called “Seen Unseen,” where you can get a discounted ticket to a movie, but you won’t know what it is until it starts. I had nothing going on tonight, and thanks to my pass it wouldn’t cost me anything but time, so I decided to give it a shot.

I made it about fifteen minutes into a Mark Wahlberg movie about an adventure racer who becomes friends with a street dog. I didn’t even get to the point where they met. I spent more time making this post than I did watching the movie.

Sorry, Arthur the King. Maybe someone else will enjoy your wooden acting, syrup-clogged score, and frequently unfocused camera work. Maybe the film takes a dramatic turn to the tolerable once man meets dog. Maybe it shifts away from Marky Mark and onto Simu Liu (who is also in this movie). I will probably never know.

Oh, and it’s currently at a 6.8 out of 10 on IMDB. It’s not actually released yet, so these reviews are either from preview audiences or fibbers.
