THE CALL OF THE WILD – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 21st, 2020

“Disney’s The Call of the Wild is a PG sanitized version of something better.”

The Call of the Wild should be a movie that we are talking about during awards season. The book is a classic and lends itself to some incredible action and powerful moments. With Harrison Ford anchoring the cast we should be talking about a PG-13 adaptation that is part The Revenant, part The Edge, a dash of Homeward Bound, and a touch of Dances with Wolves. I’m serious. The source material is there. That is why I am pretty disappointed to report that this is a PG sanitized version of The Call of the Wild that goes through the motions of any typical Disney movie featuring animals. There isn’t enough here to intrigue adults and there isn’t enough here to hold young children’s attention. What we are left with is a weird purgatory of a movie where no one can walk out entirely pleased.

THE TRAITOR – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 19th, 2020

“The Traitor is a great addition to the gangster genre.”

There’s a treasure trove of gangster-themed movies and television shows out there at the moment, from the Oscar-nominated film The Irishman by Martin Scorsese to Peaky Blinders on Netflix with dozens of mafia documentaries in between to fill in the gaps. Marco Bellocchio’s The Traitor fits in nicely into this genre and can even stand on its own with its unique way of storytelling that centers on the real-life criminals who were finally put in prison after one of the mob bosses informed the authorities about his rival’s business.

ENTER THE FAT DRAGON – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 14th, 2020

“Enter the Fat Dragon is a jolly-good movie .”

The Ip Man himself (Donnie Yen) has retired from the serious business of the strong, silent type of honor and tradition and has fully embraced a fun vacation in his new film Enter the Fat Dragon, based off Sammo Hung Kam-bo’s unforgotten 1978 film about an obese Bruce Lee fan. Nothing is subtle here with its charm, comedy, and over-the-top violent action sequences that guarantees to hand-deliver a wonderful time in 30 minutes or less.

DOWNHILL – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 12th, 2020

“Downhill is highly enjoyable.”

Julia Louis-Dreyfus and Will Ferrell head to the mountains in Austria for a fun ski-vacation with their two kids in Downhill, which is an American remake from the 2014 Swedish film Force Majeure. While being skeptical about this American version is rational and justified, Downhill is different and original enough to stand completely on its own and acts more like a sibling film to the original. Thanks to the writing/directing team of Jim Rash and Nat Faxon (The Way Way Back), Downhill is highly enjoyable and tackles a few family issues in its short-run time of 80 minutes with a brilliant performance from Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

The Fast Saga Trailer Breakdown and Reaction!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 6th, 2020

 

The Fast & Furious movies, or as the studio now wants us to call it: The Fast Saga, has been a rocket ship to the moon of ridiculous for the past decade. Every sequel gets bigger and crazier. We’ve had skyscraper jumping, parachute cars, using a car as a murder weapon, pushing a torpedo on ice with your hand while fighting a submarine, the list goes on forever. Well, what a glorious day it was for me this weekend when a new almost four-minute trailer for the latest Fast Saga Film F9 made its way into these eyeballs. This trailer is more absurd, fun and insane than almost any of the other movies. This crew started stealing blu ray players from trucks and is now “Tarzan-Swinging” a car over a cliff… I can’t get enough of how wild this trailer is. So watch the trailer then check out my scientific breakdown with time stamps.

BIRDS OF PREY – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 6th, 2020

“Birds of Prey is shot extremely well, keeps the pace fast, and goes in a different direction than any DC film before it.”

DC Comics and Warner Bros. have been putting their ears to the ground and listening to the calls for a less brooding and more energetic, fun-paced superhero universe for quite some time now. We saw a good bit of that change in the wonderful Shazam! film and now DC Comics has turned that volume up to eleven with the ultra-violent, over-the-top anti-hero team-up Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn). Even the title suggests that they’re trying too hard, which is the ultimate flaw with this otherwise fun if not exhausting movie.

HORSE GIRL – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 5th, 2020

“Horse Girl is the indie art-house version of Fire in the Sky.”

Director Jeff Baena is no stranger to the offbeat and mysterious realms he tells his stories in. With films about a zombie romance (Life After Beth), a loner who’s looking to party (Joshy), or even a hilarious take on nuns and witches (The Little Hours) – Baena doesn’t shy away from expressing his unique voice in different time periods or genres. His latest film Horse Girl, debuting exclusively on NETFLIX, allows Baena to explore the human psyche when pushed to its limit with the added ingredients of horror and science-fiction. In fact, Horse Girl is the indie art-house version of Fire in the Sky and succeeds in the best ways possible.

GRETEL AND HANSEL – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2020

Gretel and Hansel is a horror movie that I didn’t expect to be pleasantly surprised by. Typically if a movie is released in January you can expect that it will have a ton of issues and the studio wanted to dump it. When I first saw the trailer for Gretel and Hansel and realized that it wasn’t coming out in September or October to take advantage of those horror months I crossed it off my list. Well, I have to say that this may be the very rare exception to my January expectation rule. Gretel and Hansel is a much creepier and well-made horror movie than I ever expected it to be.

THE RHYTHM SECTION – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2020

“The Rhythm Section comes up short and is far from anything thrilling.”

Blake Lively steps into the assassin world in The Rhythm Section from cinematographer turned director Reed Morano, based on the popular book of the same name by Mark Burnell. With international intrigue, a terrorist plot, and sheer vengeance at its core, The Rhythm Section is more grounded than it seems, but with an awful script and some serious pacing problems, this thriller comes up short and is far from anything thrilling, despite its R rating for violence. Even the title is horrendous. This all being said, Lively and Jude Law turn in solid performances and try their best to edge this would be cliche of a movie into something better than it is.

THE GENTLEMEN – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 23rd, 2020

“The Gentlemen is a wonderful and hilarious step back into what Ritchie does best.”

The Gentlemen is a return to true form for director Guy Ritchie who two decades ago gave us some of the funniest and most violent gangster movies, including Snatch and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Ritchie has a penchant for the London gangster scene and after many years of different genres and a blockbuster Disney film about a blue genie, it was time the British filmmaker came back to his origins with a funny, brutal story and a vast amount of zany characters that are guaranteed to entertain with The Gentlemen, led by an all-star cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, and Charlie Hunnam.
