Film Review: ‘Annihilation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 23rd, 2018


Adapted screenplays are common these days as more studios seek out novelists for material inspiration. In the latest visual reworking, Director Alex Garland, who modernized artificial intelligence and gave us the ingenious ‘Ex Machina,’ shares his dexterity for the science fiction genre once again with ‘Annihilation.’ The film plants you into the surreal world of Jeff Vander Meer’s unique imagination; a place that is both cosmic and disconcerting. This biosphere venture is a daring and elegant investigation of impossibilities. Its complexity and terror-inducing thrills will not only cause cold sweats, but leave viewers mystified at the end of a strange trip.

Film Review: ‘Red Sparrow’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 23rd, 2018

Have you ever wondered what happens to ballerinas who have their legs shattered worse than a hit by Lawrence Taylor? Well Red Sparrow is the movie for you. The basic plot is that Jennifer Lawrence is a Russian ballerina who suffers a horrible injury and is forced into a spy program by her uncle. Joel Edgerton plays a CIA operative who is in contact with a Russian mole. That is really all you need to know going into the movie. I can tell you that it is a very deliberate slow burn with its nearly two and a half hour run time. The payoff is worth it and there are enough moments sprinkled throughout that kept my attention. The violence is particularly brutal and they shy away from nothing to the point even I cringed at a torture scene.

4K UHD Review: ‘Hell or High Water’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 19th, 2018

THE FILM


(The film portion was written by Liz Tramer)

Director David Mackenzie’s latest film, Hell or High Water, is a perfect example of how slow and steady wins the race.  The film is a little slow to start, but once it gets going, it’s fantastic. The story centers around two brothers, Toby  Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) who are desperately trying to save their mother’s farm and keep it in the family. The brothers are literally under the gun to find the money and decide the quickest way to make the deadline is to rob banks. Toby is intelligent, calm, cool and collected and the brains behind the operation. Tanner is an ex con hothead who relishes the crime spree and does little to control either his rage or his inclination toward violence.

‘Get Out’ is Coming back to theaters for FREE!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

On February 19th, a total of 55 AMC Theaters across the nation will show the Oscar nominated and award winning film ‘GET OUT’ for FREE! You can see the list of theaters down below by clicking the link. ‘GET OUT’ is one of the best films of 2017 and I’m so happy they are showing it for free next week. Who would have predicted that one half of the ‘Key and Peele’ show would direct a movie that would be talked about and remembered for many years to come. It’s half horror and half comedy with an excellent satire behind it all.

Dan Moran’s ‘Black Panther’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

Admittedly, the easiest narrative for Black Panther reviews is that it is a “game-changer”, “important”, “redefines hero”, etc. Those narratives and feelings aren’t wrong. I think Black Panther is one of Marvel’s best stand-alone hero films. It is right behind The Winter Soldier and the original Iron Man for me. In a few years it may even eclipse those two as the distance and impact it has going forward is felt. I believe the cultural and racial themes of this film are well thought out, focused, bold, and sobering. To be perfectly honest I don’t feel comfortable writing about that aspect of the film in depth. I’m a 32 year old goofy white guy who is not a good enough writer to navigate that territory, plus I lack the experiences that would make my take worth reading. There are some incredible writers who have written on the overall cultural impact of (essentially) an all-black cast superhero film and I encourage all of you to seek those pieces out because they are worth your time. My review is going to focus on just how badass this movie is.

Top 10 Moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Thus Far!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2018

 

Black Panther is debuting very soon and in 3 short months, we will witness Infinity War on the big screen, which is the culmination of all 18 Marvel movies that came before it. I love the Marvel movies, at a minimum they get how to entertain and present their characters in the most appealing way possible. I’m sure that Black Panther will have an incredible moment or two and without a doubt the spectacle that Infinity War HAS to be will present us with some memorable scenes. Until then I figured I would share my 10 Favorite Moments from the MCU so far.

Film Review: ‘Black Panther’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2018

Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

Film Review: ‘[Fifty Shades Freed]’!!

by Janet White on Feb 9th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

I’m super excited to release my first video film review with ‘Fifty Shades Freed‘.  What a way to start this “ball” rolling (heavy pun intended). Needless to say, I was a fan of this third film and I hope to share more video movie reviews in the future. The official synopsis is “Believing they’ve left behind the shadowy figures from the past, billionaire Christian Grey and his new wife, Anastasia, fully embrace their inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. Just as the Greys begin to step into their new roles, sinister events come to light and jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins.” Let’s hope there are more sequels.

4K UHD Review: ‘Wonder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Back in 2012, author R.J. Palacio released her novel ‘Wonder‘, which caught on worldwide quickly and became one of the most heartfelt and dare I say it “wonderful” stories of recent memory. It was only a matter of time before it was optioned into a movie. Luckily Lionsgate picked it up where author/director Stephen Chbosky (Perks of Being a Wallflower) signed on to take on the task in adapting this fantastic story for the big screen. ‘Wonder‘ follows a young boy named Auggie (Jacob Tremblay) who was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that causes facial disfiguration at birth, which can cause problems with hearing, eyesight, and breathing.

Film Review: ‘Flower’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2018

Sometimes you get a film that seems so good on paper, but after you watch it, you can’t help but be sorely disappointed in just about everything you’ve witnessed. ‘Flower‘ is that kind of movie that had a lot of potential, but just couldn’t get it together for anyone to really relate to, even though it tried to be realistic. The film was directed by Max Winkler who hasn’t really done anything before this, and was written by three male writers, which is weird, because the main characters are female, which causes some strange dialogue for sure.

Film Review: ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 5th, 2018

Going into ‘The Cloverfield Paradox‘, which should be renamed to ‘The Cloverfield Potato‘, I was a huge fan of this movie universe and its mythology. With 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, I loved the use of handheld cameras and the found footage aspect to tell this crazy story of a giant creature wreaking havoc on everyone and everything in New York, despite the annoying characters. Some years later, we got a film set in the same universe with ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, which had us holed up with John Goodman and couple other great characters where something terrible was happening outside their underground bunker, just as something equally awful was happening underground. JJ Abrams had announced a third film some years ago that would take place in this ‘Cloverfield‘ universe, but went thru many delays and a ton of titles, including ‘The God Particle‘.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Class of 1999’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 1st, 2018

THE FILM


Filmmaker Mark L. Lester has sure made a name for himself in cinema world, mostly being movies from the 1980s. He gave us some of the most homoerotic action films from that time, including ‘Commando‘ and ‘Showdown in Little Tokyo‘ to name a few. ‘Class of 1999‘ is no different either and is a sibling sequel to his film a few years beforehand in ‘Class of 1984‘. With ‘1984‘, you had a new teacher come to a violent high-school where most of the kids are in gangs and try to make a difference. Things get out of hand for sure.

Film Review: ‘Victor Crowley’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 1st, 2018

You’ve heard the names Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, and Michael Myers before, and you know what they’re capable of. In addition to those names, you should get to know Victor Crowley, who has earned a spot right next to these horror icons with his own film franchise called ‘Hatchet‘. Director Adam Green (Frozen, Hatchet, Holliston) comes back to the director’s chair for the 4th installment in the ‘Hatchet‘ franchise called ‘Victor Crowley‘. Green, being a passionate fan of the horror genre himself, has taken his favorite elements from all of our favorite horror movies from the 1970s, 80s, and 90s, and injected them into his films in the best ways.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Straight from it’s dynamic debut where it premiered January 21, 2018, at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section, comes ‘Hereditary‘ to theaters nation wide June 8th, 2018. It’s a combination drama/mystery/horror film that will make anyone take a second look at their family. The writer director Ari Aster is the man behind this film, both from his pen and his artistic vision that brought the project to fruition. This is Aster’s first feature length film after helming and writing   a handful of short films. With positive reviews coming in, it seems his first attempt at a full length film was a success, at least that’s what the 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes would suggest. I’m sure that’s a relief for PalmStar Media (‘Collateral Beauty‘), Windy Hill Pictures, and A24 (‘Lady Bird‘, ‘The Florida Project‘, ‘The Disaster Artist‘) who were the production companies backing the flick.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Cook Off!’

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2018

THE FILM


There might be a few hundred reality shows based on cooking competitions. Some involve chefs, while others involve children trying to cook five star meals. It’s all terrible. More than 10 years ago, a woman named Cathryn Michon made a film in the style of a Christopher Guest Mockumentary (Best in Show), called ‘Cook Off!‘, which showed us some whacky characters in a cooking competition. Again, this film was made more than 10 years ago and has been sitting on a shelf for the right time. Turns out, it was never the right time and for some reason, we have this horrible movie in front of us.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Geostorm’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2018

THE FILM


Natural disaster films will always have a special place in my heart. Most of the time, they are over-the-top, ridiculous, and never make a lick of sense. Still, there is something entertaining in watching giant cities fall due to an alien invasion, a giant lizard, or is with the case of ‘Geostorm‘, extreme weather. No matter what the premise, these films usually have the same intentions and plot structure, which usually involves one hero guy to save the day, millions of casualties, hilarious one-liners, and enough insane plot tangents that would cause you to have a headache.

THE FILM


Back in 2009, the brilliant filmmaker Sam Raimi journeyed back to his horror roots and made a fun-as-hell horror-comedy film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘. For those of you who don’t remember who Sam Raimi is, movies like ‘Evil Dead II‘, ‘Army of Darkness‘, ‘The Spider-Man Trilogy‘, and ‘Darkman‘ are some of his accomplishments. Raimi and his brother and frequent collaborator Ivan Raimi had an idea for a horror film called ‘The Curse‘, but when Raimi booked the ‘Spider-Man‘ gig, that film was put on hold for the next decade. After ‘Spider-Man 3‘ was released, Sam and Ivan went quickly back to their idea to work on a low budget horror film again, which turned into ‘Drag Me To Hell’.

Flanagan is a horror filmmaker himself, where he got his start with the films ‘Oculus‘ and ‘Hush‘.

Criterion Blu-ray Review: ‘I, Daniel Blake’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 23rd, 2018

THE FILM


For more than 50 years, Ken Loach (KES) has been making films that cause us to think about our current political and social climates, no matter what race your are or where you come from, because a lot of us suffer from the same overall issues, whether it be medically, financially, or a corrupt government. Loach has never been shy to show any of these topics in his films over the years as well as in real life interviews. If you’ve ever attended a screening a film festival or movie where Loach is the director behind the movie, you will immediately know what you’re in for, which is usually a story of someone being beat by the system, despite all of the honest and good things they do. His film I, Daniel Blake is no different, which isn’t a bad thing.

The Incredibles‘ are making a comeback and Disney released character portraits in the most trendy, pop culture-ish way possible, as selfies matched with their artistic counter-part. Google’s Arts and Culture app has been the new driving force powering social media and everyone is doing it. I even tried to get a match on my dog, Duke, aka John Wayne, but there’s not recognition for pets, yet. Along with the images of the voice actors, we see stylized artwork of their on-screen persona, and it’s awesome to see anything coming from Disney Pixar about the upcoming sequel. But that’s not all they’ve given us. We get four new images, but we also get some plot details!

We’ve got the latest trailer for ‘Tomb Raider’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 18th, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here, 

It’s a new year and we’re a few days closer to the debut of the ‘Tomb Raider‘ reboot which will hit theaters March 16. The film comes from Norwegian film director Roar Uthaug (‘The Wave‘, ‘Escape‘), while the screenplay comes from screenwriters Alastair Siddons (‘Trespass Against Us‘), and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Her credits include some pretty big up and coming flicks like a ‘Dungeons & Dragons‘ film, ‘Captain Marvel‘, ‘Gotham City Sirens‘, and ‘M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand‘.

To carry out the visions of these filmmakers, they’ve brought an amazing cast on board. Alicia Vikander will take over the Lara Croft role, with Kristin Scott Thomas, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, and Dominic West all lending their talents to this big-screen spectacle.

Film Review: ‘The Road Movie’ (2018)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2018

Big budget action blockbusters don’t have shit on this documentary, simply titled ‘The Road Movie‘. Russian filmmaker Dmitirii Kalashnikov has expertly edited a treasure trove of what acts as the ‘Best Of” YouTube videos of Russian dashboard vehicle cameras that showcase the crazy, sick, and depraved of the Russian highways and city streets. We’ve all seen a few short 10-second clips of a car crash or some crazy Russian guy getting out of his car with a weapon over small traffic dispute.

4K UHD Review: ‘Jigsaw’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2018

THE FILM


Wait, what? He’s back? He’s really back with his infamous contraptions that kill people? Of course he’s back, even after a seven year hiatus, which was the last time we watched the Saw franchise on the big screen. Jigsaw marks the 8th film in the series since 2004 and with an eight film combined budget of $77 million, the box office gross of all eight films is a hair-line under $1 billion. So if you think there will be more Saw films with more Tobin Bell, the answer is a hard “yes”. The Spierig Bros. (Undead, Predestination, Daybreakers) are in the director chairs this time around as they put Jigsaw/John Cramer (Bell) in the center of the story.

Interview with Casper Van Dien!

I had the distinct pleasure to talk with actor/filmmaker and known Starship Trooper Casper Van Dien about his new film ‘Showdown in Manila‘ amongst other things. We dive into working on the film, which was filmed on location in Manila and eating all the fun food. We also talk about his performances as Tarzan, Griffin Stone in Beverly Hills 90210, and his interest in music. Starship Troopers is also talked about of course. One of my favorite moments is when Casper discusses his deleted scenes in the film Rules of Attraction, where he played Patrick Bateman. Such a great story. Casper Van Dien is a badass.

Can one possibly get enough ‘John Wick‘? The answer to that question is “Hell No!!!” Well Starz and Lionsgate TV have joined forces to bring us ‘The Continental‘, an serial adaptation of the films inspired by the film and occasionally featuring the Baba Yaga himself, Keanu Reeves. It will be set in the universe created for 2014’s juggernaut ‘John Wick‘ and the 2017 sequel ‘John Wick: Chapter 2‘.

There is a tertiary film in the series standing in pre-production now, eyeing a 2019 release date.

Ethan Hawke has ’24 Hours To Live’ on Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 12th, 2018

Why did this movie not get a major theatrical release? I have no idea. This movie called ‘24 Hours To Live‘ stars Ethan Hawk and produced by the guys who helped make ‘John Wick‘. I mean, this has gold written all over it. Not sure what bonus features will be available, but there is none listed at the moment. Let’s hope that changes. You can currently see the film On Demand, but the Blu-ray will be available on February 6th.

Film Review: ‘Phantom Thread’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 12th, 2018

It was a gloomy day when Daniel Day-Lewis announced his retirement from acting in 2017, and watching the curtain close over his final film was bittersweet. But in staying steadfast to his trademark of eloquent and emotional performances, he established once more that he’s a masterful artist. ‘Phantom Thread‘ is a stylishly sophisticated picture interlaced with darkness. Director Paul Thomas Anderson has capsuled the allure of a post-war decade and produced a motion picture any exiting actor would be proud to call their last.

‘Flight of the Conchords’ are coming back to HBO!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2018

In the daytime of the night, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who make up the duo that is the hilarious ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ are coming back to HBO for a one-hour special of music and comedy later this year. The comedic pair will perform new and old songs on their upcoming comedy tour, which will be filmed in front of a sold out audience in the UK. This is just excellent news and I hope the two will have future specials and even a new show after the success of this upcoming one. I wonder if there will be a new Bowie song or a sequel to ‘Business Time’. I hope so.

After Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead Trilogy) got done filming ‘Spider-Man‘ movies and a variety of other non-horror projects, the master filmmaker returned to his roots with a fun-as-hell film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘, which mixed his unique style of silly humor and ultimate terror. The film was released in 2009 and was a return to form for Raimi, before he got on board with revamping ‘The Evil Dead‘ in TV series form. The new collector’s Edition Blu-ray will be available on February 13th and have theatrical and unrated cuts of the film, a new transfer, and new interviews with the cast. Prior bonus features will also be available here too. I can’t wait for this one.

4H UHD Review: ‘Inception’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Every once in a blue-moon, a movie comes out that feels refreshing, original, and entertains us on a certain level that we won’t soon forget. Of of those movies is ‘Inception‘, directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). As Nolan was making his Dark Knight (Batman) trilogy, he made a movie in between each sequel. One of them was this film and it truly shines out of all the rest. It brings something everyone does for half their life and makes a thrilling and smart film out of it. ‘Inception‘ involves sleeping and dreaming, but with certain technology, you can be in control of your dreams, and even connect to other people’s dreams and plant an idea in their heads that might make them change their way of thinking. That’s the point of ‘Inception’. It’s quite brilliant.

You never thought we’d get a crossover feature animated film of Batman and Scooby-Doo, did you? Well we have one now and I’m here to say that’s it’s quite a fun experience that combines both the DC Universe and the classic Scooby-Doo antics that we’ve grown to love. This marks the 30th Scooby-Doo film and brings back the whole ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ cast back to the screen, which is the first time since 2011 when they went off the air with their hit TV show. On paper, or even the fun poster art of the film, you wouldn’t think these two worlds would mix well together, but when the two universes collide, its seems like they were always meant to be together and solve crimes together. They are the peanut butter and jelly of the animated world.

Film Review: ‘Insidious: The Last Key’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 4th, 2018

If there’s anything that can be said about the Insidious franchise, it’s that they found a working formula and boy did they decide to stick with it.  This is the fourth installment of the film series and…well…it’s remarkably like the previous installments.  This is not necessarily a bad thing. If it ain’t broke, why fix it, right?  Still, I got much more déjà vu instead of déjà-new© out of this movie. With all that being said, it’s still a damn good sequel.

That’s right. The hit TV show ‘Animaniacs‘ is getting the reboot treatment and will air exclusively over at Hulu. The streaming giant is so confident in its return, it has already booked a two season order for new episodes, which will premiere sometime in 2020. It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since we last saw a fresh, new episode of ‘Animaniacs‘, but it’s true – that was the last time we saw one. The original run lasted from 1993-1998 and featured Wakko, Wakko, and Dot on their adventures, which also taught young kids a thing or two.

Software App Review: ‘Film Budgeteers’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2018

THE PROGRAM


When preparing to make a movie, short film, or TV series, there are quite possibly a million things that you will have to decide on and plan in advance to get the ball rolling to execute your vision on screen. Actors, crew members, marketing, sets, props, makeup, hair-styling, food, lighting, cameras, and tons of other aspects are required to make a movie. Unless you’re making a movie in your own home, by yourself with your iPhone, I’m willing to bet your film – no matter how big or small it is, will require you to pony up some money for it to be made. Now, pretty much all films have a budget. A budget can be as small as $5000 or can be as huge as $250 million. You’re going to have to budget and not go over your budget in order for you film to work. So how can you work out a film budget on paper that shows where all the money is going to? Usually, you would hire someone for that, but there’s a new app in town called ‘Film Budgeteers‘, which essentially does all the work for you.

Eli Roth (The Bear Jew and director of ‘Cabin Fever‘) has remade the 1974 violent revenge film ‘Death Wish‘. Instead of Charles Bronson, we now have Bruce Willis. This film was originally slated to release in theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday of last year, but the studio decided to push it now to March 2, 2018. The guy behind ‘Narc‘, ‘Smoking Aces‘, and ‘The Grey‘ (Joe Carnahan) has written the screenplay too. I’m sure this movie will be fun with some hardcore carnage and one-liners, or at least – let’s hope. Below is a ton of info about the film and of course the trailer.

‘Jigsaw’ Is Coming to 4K UHD!

Nothing is over when it comes to the ‘Saw‘ franchise and Jigsaw. The new installment in that horror series, simply titled ‘Jigsaw‘ is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on January 23rd. You’ll be able to watch it digitally as early as January 9th. They brothers who made the zombie film ‘Undead‘ and the vampire film ‘Daybreakers‘ sat in the director’s chair this time around with more insane bloody traps and more twists and turns than ever before. There are tons of extras, including audio commentary and behind the scenes featurettes. There is also a Dolby Atmos audio track, which I hope is demo worthy. To hear blood and guts fall from the ceiling could be super awesome. More details below.

‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ is coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

One of my favorite and Top movies of 2017 is coming to Blu-ray on January 23rd. Of course, I’m talking about ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘ from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). The film stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Barry Keoghan. I have described this movie as a sibling to Stanley Kurbick’s film ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘, because of the glaring similarities. Not only is it similar, but it’s a damn good film that stays with you long after you watch it. There looks to be only one extra here and no 4K UHD release yet, but let’s hope that changes. I can’t wait to watch this again and  relive the awkwardness and suspenseful situations this movie delivers.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


The threats of terrorism, war, chaos, and financial ruin are all too real these days.  ’The Dark Knight Rises’ dives into these issues on a massive scale, which makes any film in the Marvel universe look like mere “child’s play” (no reference to a knife-wielding murderous doll).  Compared with the other Batman movies, everything is bigger in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and there is so much more at stake.  Not one second of this film is wasted, the writing and direction is straight to the point, cohesive, and comes across as totally fulfilling in its 164 minute run-time.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Dark Knight’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


The Dark Knight‘ is one of those rare instances where the sequel is even better that it’s previous original movie. I would say that this film is perhaps one of the greatest, if not the greatest superhero film of all time so far. In addition to that, it’s just a fantastic film itself that can compete with any movie out there. This sequel picks up with Batman in the prime of his justice restoring and bringing criminals to jail. Christian Bale is better than ever here as Batman and we see how him being the caped crusader is taking a toll both physically and mentally on him. He still manages to come through though each time. But soon enough, comes The Joker, played flawlessly by Heath Ledger.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

Film Review: ‘Molly’s Game’!

Do you have a girl crush on Jessica Chastain? Do you have a man crush on Idris Elba? If you have any combination of the two, Molly’s Game is going to make you have all the feels. This is a well done film with all the right players and script that packs a punch. Aaron Sorkin (screenplay and first time director) has taken the novel Molly’s Game and turned it into a film that at a run time of two hours and twenty minutes seems fast paced and doesn’t waste your time. While I know literally nothing about poker, this movie kept me entertained and engaged because the story wasn’t the game-it was the players.

It looks like ‘Mama Mia!‘ is getting the sequel treatment with ‘Mama Mia!: Here We Go Again‘ with everyone returning to their roles. It doesn’t look like Meryl Streep with be the main star here this time, but her and Cher will be seen in the movie. The first film was fun enough and the ABBA music still resonates, but I wonder what music group will be picked this time around. I just hope this isn’t a hasty rehash of the first film.

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

Listen up, pitches, this movie is the perfect swan song to this series, so get yourself to a theater ASAP and prepare to fall in love all over again with the ladies of Pitch Perfect. The third and final installment of the Pitch Perfect series can be viewed as a stand-alone, but honestly, you’re depriving yourself of the musical and comedic joy that are the first two films if you don’t watch the first two in advance. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last seven or so years, do yourself a favor and have a marathon, or you know, turn on TBS on any given weekend, and watch the first two. In my opinion this one is better than the second installment, so if you found yourself kind of disappointed last go around, this one puts you back on track.

Film Review: ‘Downsizing’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

Shrinking down to fun size has historically been an entertaining idea in the imaginations of many. Whether it is ‘Ant-Man’ in the pages of comics or ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ in the theatrics of movies, “getting small” isn’t exactly a new concept. In the latest film ‘Downsizing’, Director Alexander Payne attempts to add a satirical spin on the miniature world with people living like royalty while also saving their carbon footprints, but the result is an awkwardly muddled comedy that squashes any chances it may have had with making a big impact.

Oh, we got fun…and the game! Coaxing and soaring over the tails of its predecessor, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will rock your world. In 1995, Jumanji, centered on a board game, turned a home and a city inside out with adventure stampeding over the bounds of the silver screen. Picking up from where the first film left off, the board game is found on a beach. Jumanji ensnares new victims, so let the ride begin. Read the rest of this entry »

Alan Ball has a new show coming out on HBO, meaning we should all pay attention to this. The new show is called ‘Here and Now‘ and stars Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins. If you don’t remember who Alan Ball is, he wrote a great film called ‘American Beauty‘, which won a ton of awards. He then went on to create ‘Six Feet Under‘ and ‘True Blood‘ for HBO. We’ve all been waiting patiently since then for him to come back to work on a new HBO series.

Sicario 2: Soldado Trailer is Here!

Sicario‘ was one of the better films of 2015. It was only fitting that we would receive a sequel called ‘Sicario 2: Soldado‘ that stars Benicio Del Toro, Josh Brolin, Isabela Moner, Jeffrey Donovan, Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, and Catherine Keener. In this sequel, Benicio and Brolin team up to fight the cartel and their terrorist on US soil, which looks to be super violent and suspenseful. Taylor Sheridan has returned to write the screenplay, but director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) has not returned.

4K UHD Review: ‘Dunkirk’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2017

THE FILM


There’s never been a war film like ‘Dunkirk‘, which I’d say is a masterpiece in filmmaking, lead by Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy). Even though Dunkirk cost $150 million to make, you really wouldn’t know it, as it’s simplistic, yet grand view of the Battle and Evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940 is perfectly captured here. Dunkirk is why we still go to the movies. It’s one of the most intense movies I’ve ever seen and is one of the reasons to get out and see it in IMAX. Other war films try add sweeping music to add an emotional effect or certain camera angles to drum up more dramatic suspense.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Stronger’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2017

THE FILM


The Boston Marathon Bombing was a horrific tragedy that only happened a few years ago, where a bomb went off at the finish line of the big marathon. People died and even more were injured. Amongst those injured was a young guy named Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs at that bombing. We’ve seen a number of films that have dealt with terroristic attacks that involve elite military teams or big action sequences. Other films might tackle a group of police officers or a group of people who have to deal with this attack. That’s not the case with this fantastic and melancholy film called ‘Stronger‘.

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

Last Flag Flying‘ is coming to Blu-ray on January 30th and will be available digitally on January 16th. The film is directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some, Boyhood) and stars Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne, and is based on Darryl Ponicsan’s book of the same name. The movie focuses on three older men who all served in Vietnam together. Fast forward many years later, they are all reunited when one of their son’s has died in the Iraq war and they road trip to bury the fallen. It’s a different kind of movie for sure in Linklater’s list of movies, but he proves that he can tackle any subject, even if it isn’t as silly or fun as the above mentioned films of his. There will be audio commentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and more included on this Blu-ray. Below is more information on the release.

HBO orders 10th season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

It was several years between season 9 and season 9 of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘, which the 9th season just ended on HBO to rave reviews and huge laughs. It was one of my favorite seasons for sure where Larry David had a Fatwa placed on him. The President of HBO programming Casey Bloys announced today that a 10th season will be happening and production will start next spring. Yes, that means we will have to wait a year at the most for a new season and not several years like in the past.

I’m so psyched for ‘Class of 1999‘ on Blu-ray from Vestron Video. This sci-fi thriller was part of my video collection when I was younger and I watched it all the time. Basically, this is about a high-school that puts in robotic teachers to keep the peace in school, but it turns into a real ‘Westworld‘ type of situation when the robot teachers start killing students. It’s then up to the kids to fight back. It stars Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, and Malcolm McDowell, which it doesn’t get cooler than that. There are new commentaries and interviews for bonus features. The Blu-ray will be released on January 30th, 2018 in a limited edition and I can’t be more excited about this if I tried to be.

‘Annihilation’ trailer is here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2017

Based on Jeff VanderMeer’s best-selling Southern Reach Trilogy, Annihilation stars Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Tuva Novotny and Oscar Isaac. It was written and directed by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, 28 Days Later). It looks so good and scary as hell. It has a lot of ‘Alien‘ and ‘Predator‘ vibes to it too. Perhaps this will be the better version of those movies that came out several years ago. The movie will release on February 23, 2018, which you can bet, I’ll be first in line for.

Film Review: ‘Ferdinand’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2017

If you were to browse any children’s library, you would likely find a little red book with a stout bull on the cover. The Story of Ferdinand has found its way onto countless best of lists and even created controversy around its rebellious symbolism amidst its release in 1936. The new animated feature ‘Ferdinand‘ is no different in its progressiveness, and the film not only challenges the conventions of commonality, but includes heavy themes such as bullying, trophy sport and even meat packing plants. Director Carlos Saldanha has justifiably brought this gentle giant to life and has created a film that, just like its main character, is more than meets the eye.

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2017

There is always hope for a new ‘Star Wars‘ movie. Two years ago with ‘The Force Awakens‘, Disney and JJ Abrams reinvigorated the franchise into becoming the #1 movie of all time. Not only was it financially successful, but it brought a new love to the film series, since the prequels almost destroyed all that ‘Star Wars‘ had built up since 1977. It was a new day in the ‘Star Wars‘ universe with new characters crossing paths with our favorite original characters, which made our collective nerdy hearts soar with happiness and nostalgia.
