Film Review: ‘A LEGO Brickumentary’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 31st, 2015

Janet W., Here…

When you were a kid, which of your toys was limited only by your imagination?  Dolls?  Cars and fire engines? Your Big Wheel?  For many people, it was LEGOs.  If you could imagine it, with hard work and lots of LEGOs you could bring it to the third dimension.  A LEGO Brickumentary explores the origin, innovation, and longevity of this building block known around the world.  Guided by a trusty LEGO minifigure narrator (Jason Bateman), the film travels from the outer reaches of space to LEGO’s birthplace, Denmark.  What started out as solid red blocks with small knobs to attach it to other blocks (“Clutch Power”) has evolved into translucent, motorized, and magnetic units available in a bevy of different colors.  Chock full of facts and awe-inspiring constructs, A LEGO Brickumentary reveals there is more to this block and its uses are infinite or are they?  For example, the name LEGO comes from the Danish word Leg Godt, which means “play well.”

ROOM_Poster

Emma Donoghue wrote what has become a sensational multi-award winner in ‘ROOM‘, then she wrote a screenplay and worked with director Lenny Abrahamson to bring the final product to the big screen. ‘ROOM‘ is incredibly moving, emotional in ways I didn’t really anticipate with an edge-of-your-seat thriller sensation as well.

Whether you have a surface level knowledge of Woody Allen films or are an avid follower, the themes in “Irrational Man” will feel familiar: conflicted, tortured man feels the world is meaningless yet is adored by fawning women, and murder as the only solution to the problems of the world.

mel-gibson-2

Finally Mel Gibson has come back to DIRECTING!!!! So I’m watching some old school WWF shows while I’m writing this, but my excitement is still the same. I’ve been pushing my own private agenda and have been stumping for Gibson to have his black-ball status lifted since his…let’s just say indiscretions.

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

bmw-in-mission-impossible-5-rogue-nation_100505432_l

A couple of years later from ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol‘, we have Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team, consisting of Benji (Simon Pegg), William (Jeremy Renner), and Luther (Ving Rhames) on a mission to acquire a certain dangerous cargo that is about to take off in a military airplane. I’m sure you’ve seen the trailers by now to know that Tom Cruise did indeed do his own stunts again, including actually hanging off the edge of airplane as it took off high in the sky. This is the opening scene to ‘Rogue Nation‘, the fifth film in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ franchise that ignites the bomb and iconic theme song.

The new red band trailer for Seth Rogen’s new film ‘The Night Before‘ is fantastic. Rogen stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie who have been childhood friends. They annually re-convene every Christmas eve for a night of debauchery and decadence, however, since they are older now, this might be the last time they get to party, so they’re going to make this one count.

13-Hours-Book-Cover

 

As Americans there are moments that made time stand still for our country. The attacks on September 11, 2001 crippled our spirits with the biggest sucker punch in history, and the attack on the American diplomatic compound and the nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya on the 11th anniversary of that horrid event, ripped that scar wide open. Some may see a film based on the events of that fateful night as a crass money-maker, I see the film as a remembrance and a warning to the future to never let this happen again.

Film Review: ‘Vacation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

“We’re on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose!” Those were wise, unearthing words from America’s family man Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) as he trekked his family from Chicago to California inside the Griswold family truckster back in 1983. Clark, along with his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and their two kids Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron) encountered a variety of hilarious obstacles and problems along their difficult road trip, but they stuck together as a family and proved that any American family can make it across country without killing one another…mostly.

MSG

Mississippi Grind‘ is one of those loose, lively road movies centering on Ben Mendelsohn as Gerry, a talented but on a good-run-of-bad-luck gambler who changes his fortunes when he meets Curtis (Ryan Reynolds), a younger poker player. The pair become immediate friends and Gerry persuades Curtis to join him on a road trip to a legendary high stakes poker game in New Orleans. Of course, theirs is not a direct line with no stops and they hit just about every bar, racetrack, casino or pool hall they can find experiencing the ultimate highs and lows of gambling, each win or loss cements their friendship creating a genuine bond between the two.

Pixels opens in 1982 with Sam, a teenager, overflowing with elation at the fact that the new pinnacle of a child’s joy has opened in his town.  Alongside his friend, Cooper, they walk into doors of the wondrous cacophony of fun and games, the arcade.  They meet an awkward conspiracy theorist mind you he is 10 or so years old, and decide to Sam crushes every game put before him all the way to the World Championships then he meets his nemesis, Fire Blaster aka Eddie.  The casting of the young characters is quite good, especially when it came to young Eddie.  Fast-forward several years and the adventure begins with an attack on Guam by Galaga.  Yes, the arcade game.
