Nightcrawler opens with the moonshining down on the city of angels, we see a thief, Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in action.  He is cutting away chain-linked fence when a security guard spots him.  A bright light shines on the sunken face and wiry form of Bloom.  (According to IMDB, Jake Gyllenhaal lost 20 lbs. for the role.)  The rent-a-cop asks for ID, but Bloom repeatedly diverts his requests with distracting comments and questions.  Bloom is a fast-talker.  Cut to bargaining with a scrap metal yard foreman in an attempt to sell the copper wire and chain-linked fence Bloom had collected.  The foreman doesn’t waive on his offer and resolve, but Bloom rapidly counters like a string of firecrackers pushing for better pay.  The foreman refuses to give Bloom a penny more than his offer.  What does Bloom do in response to this let down?  He asks for a job.  As plainly as he can, the foreman assures Bloom that he would never hire a thief.  Scraping to make ends meet and living in squalor, Bloom is desperate for a fast track to success.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Steve Jobs is the topic of another biopic project. This time around Christian Bale is going to play the legendary genius opposite Seth Rogen’s Steve Wozniak. Bale and Rogen are shoring up a cast that will possibly include Jessica Chastain in an unspecified role.  Alone, Jobs and Wozniak were brilliant, but together the tech world would never be the same once they launch Apple. Writer Aaron Sorkin has adapted Walter Isaacson’s biography, ‘Steve Jobs‘ for Sony. Oscar-Winning director Danny Boyle (‘Trainspotting‘, ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘) is leading the life story. David Fincher was originally attached as director but his demands of a $10 Million salary and full creative control was not met by the studio.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Multi-Media Men are back with the 47th episode that covers all things in the entertainment industry. We had a great adventure this time around and had tons to discuss. It was a small week this week with Susan Kamyab from This Chix Flix and Gwen Reyes from Fresh Fiction TV . It was a lot of fun to say the least. We discuss movie monsters, horror movie characters, The Grateful Dead, Avengers 2, and even pitch our own horror “VS” movie (‘Freddy vs Jason‘). We also have a winner for our infamous HORROR MOVIE BRACKET. For our Horror Movie Bracket, we had professor Paul Nimon pair and seed it this time, to which blood was drawn between our podcasters on who should move to the next round. It got crazy. Let us know if you agree or missed anything. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page and TWITTER page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information. And don’t forget to visit iTunes and Stitcher to subscribe to our podcast. Enjoy the show.

Hey guys, Jana here,

There are directors that you want telling the heart-wrenchingly true stories based on fact. Spielberg was unflinchingly loyal to history when he made ‘Schindler’s List‘ and ‘Saving Private Ryan‘. Mel Gibson brought the history of William Wallace to life as he led the Scots in revolt against England in ‘Braveheart‘. Ridley Scott dove into the horrific tale of ‘Blackhawk Down‘ and pulled no punches with the details. ‘Act of Valor‘, ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘ and ‘Lone Survivor’ are all cut from the same cloth as the previously mentioned films. The memory and honor of the dead lives on through these fact-based projects. One name you won’t see at the top of my wish list to direct a piece like these is Michael Bay.

WWE News: WWE Announces New Plans and Pricing for Network!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 30th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…887184_451058938298646_1697072798_o

 

The CEO of WWE, Vince McMahon announced to investors and the WWE Universe this morning some new plans and pricing for their 24/7 network. When the network debuted, I purchased it on day one. As a long time WWE fan, it was such a wonderful thing to have a channel devoted to everything WWE. I could watch any pay per view from WWF, WWE, WCW, and ECW since the 70s. Not only that, I could watch their original programming, any home video that had been released, and the current pay per views live. All for the price of $9.99 a month.

The 80’s were all about excess. If you liked neon, you didn’t wear just a little bit of neon in your wardrobe, you saturated yourself with it, if you wore makeup, it was caked on thicker than Dee Snider’s and if you watched a cartoon about a rich kid, he had to be the most opulent image of wealth a kid could fathom which basically came down to swimming in a pool of money with a dog named Dollar.

Film Review: ‘NightCrawler’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

It’s very rare to me when a film stays with me for weeks on end. It’s been more than a month and I still can’t stop thinking about Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut ‘Nightcrawler‘. It’s a smooth yet very suspenseful thriller about a friendless sociopath who decides one day he is going to start a career in freelance TV new reporting, where we see him succeed as well as go to the metaphorical “dark side”. This sociopath is played by the impressive Jake Gyllenhaal who (to put lightly) has major psychological issues. We’ve seen him play something similar before in ‘Enemy‘ and ‘Donnie Darko‘, but here, he’s on a whole different level. It’s easy for me to say that Jake Gyllenhaal plays the most frightening character in film in the last decade.

Film Review: ‘Horns’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Horns Movie Picture (6)

Horror movie filmmaker Alexandre Aja has given us quite a few gems over the past decade, which include the French film ‘Haute Tension‘ and the American remake of ‘The Hills Have Eyes‘. Needless to say, he has made his own unique impact on the horror genre. But where those films tend to be the straight-in-your-face horror films with tons of blood and guts, Aja has transitioned into something with a bit more depth that what he is used to with ‘Horns‘, which is based on Joe Hill’s (Stephen King’s son) novel of the same name.

Film Review: ‘Force Majeure’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Swedish director Ruben Ostlund’s bizarre film ‘Force Majeure‘ will no doubt start conversations with your friends and loved ones about how good people can or can’t be when the shit hits the fan. This might be one of the strangest films I’ve seen in a long time, but it also might be brilliant as well. I haven’t seen this organic of a performance in years as Ostlund intimately shows his characters come face to face with their own ugly demons. We meet a picture perfect family consisting of Ebba (Lisa Loven Kongsli) and her husband Tomas (Johannes Kuhnke), and their two pre-teen kids Harry (Vincent Wettergren) and Vera (Clara Wettergren) as they are posing for pictures on top of a ski slope of a luxurious ski resort.

The famous Japanese movie production company ‘Studio Ghibli‘ is known mostly for Hayao Miyazaki’s film resume that ranges from ‘Spirited Away‘ to ‘The Wind Rises‘. Studio Ghibli continues to put out beautiful and important animated films that not only tell an amazing story, but it also touches on several political, religious, and societal issues that are relevant all over the world. And Miyazaki’s films have conjured up a large global audience that has developed into a cult following that is bigger than ever today.
