M-O-O-N That Spells ‘The Stand’ Adaptation!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 22nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Stand

 

In a sea of comic book originated films, countless sequels, adapting TV series to feature film and vice versa. Among the horror movie offerings are some decent films, that may have a general theme or idea in the sequels but not really a continuing story. One film series stands out among the rest, Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings‘ and ‘The Hobbit‘ franchises broke the mold of cramming an epic novel series into one confusing film. There are great novels that would lend themselves easily to the same type of treatment Jackson gave Tolkien’s works, my nomination for the next author, goes to Stephen King.

Mel Gibson In Talks To Direct ‘Hacksaw Ridge’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 22nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

download

Mel Gibson has been absent from the directing scene the last few years after he famously chose not to exercise his Miranda right to “remain silent” when he was pulled over for DUI. Once the incident was made public, he was systematically black-balled from the major film world. Oh, he’s still been in a few films that were by no means a success. Robert Downey, JR showed loyalty by using his voice to beg for the ban to be lifted on Gibson’s career. He was given a part in ‘The Expendables 3‘ and a part in ‘Machete Kills‘ that might have been the beginning of his return to mainstream media.

‘Dragonwolf’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 20th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

THE FILM

Dragonwolf‘ is a typical martial arts film in a lot of ways. If you want something slightly entertaining with fight scenes, this will do nicely. If you’re hell-bent on seeing quality fights, pick up a Bruce Lee flick. Watching this made me so sad though, I really wanted to like this. The finished product doesn’t even deserve an entry to my ‘Eh’ category. You know what I mean, “Hey ‘Dragonwolf‘ is on, wanna watch it?” “Eh, why not?”

Film Review: ‘Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 20th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Things are not looking up for Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) in this third installment of Suzanne Collins‘ young adult book series ‘The Hunger Games‘. In an effort to squeeze as much money as they can, the movie studio decided to split the third and final book into two parts, much like the last two ‘Harry Potter‘ films and the recent trilogy of the single book of ‘The Hobbit‘. On one hand, the fans will get two movies. On the other hand, there will be a lot of filler between these two films to stretch them out to their two-hour run time.

‘The Doctor and the Devils’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

doctoranddevils

 

THE FILM

The Doctor and The Devils‘ is a gothic thriller from the same production company that issued ‘The Fly‘, ‘Spaceballs‘ and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights‘ – Brooksfilms. Until I researched a little for this review, I didn’t even realize Mel Brooks‘ company made anything other than the classic hilarity his name automatically recalls. Brooks picked up the script from legendary poet Dylan Thomas, wherein the story of true life grave robbers, Burke and Hare is told. Maybe it was Brooks’ success with ‘The Elephant Man‘ that led him back to the surgical-experimentation game, whatever the conditions were, ‘The Doctor and The Devils‘ did not receive the same praise.

Tom Hardy Brings New Period-Drama Series To FX!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

peaky-blinders

Any project that combines Tom Hardy, Steven Knight and Ridley Scott is going to be wildly successful and any network should count themselves lucky to have this series in their entertainment stable. FX is the lucky recipient of the newest period drama series from the trio. ‘Taboo‘ will be set in 1813, a 100 year difference from the setting for ‘Peaky Blinders‘. The pair of series have more in common than being allegiant to their setting, BBC will produce both, Tom Hardy is cast in both and Steven Knight created the pair.

Scorsese and HBO Re-Team For Montezuma-Cortes Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Back in January there was talk of Steven Spielberg and Javier Bardem heading toward a script written by Steve Zaillian. Zaillian expertly took ‘Schindler’s List‘ from a novel and created a sweeping, gut-wrenching film that was lauded by critics and peers alike. The script in question was to showcase the murderous history of Cortes and Montezuma. Neither Bardem  nor Spielberg were officially attached to the project and if it is still in progress, it’s doing so quietly.

Since Disney is now in remaking their animated classics in to live action feature films with big name stars and big budgets, it was about time that ‘Cinderella‘ had its day in court. Disney has hired Kenneth Branagh (‘Hamlet‘ and ‘Thor‘) to direct this live action adaptation. Lily James (Lady Rose from ‘Downton Abbey‘) will be Cinderella and Richard Madden (Robb Stark from ‘Game of Thrones‘) will be Prince Charming. Cate Blanchett and Helena Bonham Carter will be the evil stepmother and Fairy God mother respectively. I love Branagh as an actor and director. I just hope this classic tale holds up in live action form. Enjoy the trailer and let us know what you think. See the film in theatres March 13, 2015.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The reading you do as a child shapes your literary preferences for the rest of your life. In my mind, I settled the prairie with Laura Ingalls Wilder, I watched ‘Tip and Mitten‘ sit and stay and had ‘Fun With Dick and Jane‘. I adventured with ‘The Mouse and the Motorcycle‘, chose my own adventure (Which, btw is the format Neil Patrick Harris uses for his autobiography released last month, it’s great fun and a great read), I felt brave as I read R.L. Stine’s chiller’s which gave me the confidence to pick up Stephen King in later years. No matter what you grew to love to read, there was one series that stood out from the rest , ‘Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark‘ by Alvin Schwartz with illustrations by Stephen Gammell took a heroic measure of nerve.
