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.

Film Review ‘Another Wolfcop’!!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 11th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,I had the awesome pleasure of watching ‘Another Wolfcop‘. I have to preface this review by saying there are few things I love more in this world than movies, specifically the fantastic sub-genre of horror-comedy. Don’t ask me why, but that pair works together like pineapple on pizza. Yeah, I’m one of those people. While people far and wide dis the pineapple on pizza combo, it’s an unadulterated fact that the horror-comedy tag-team works like crazy in film. So read on to check out what you can expect from this sequel to ‘Wolfcop‘ from writer/director Lowell Dean.

The Hope of ‘Star Wars’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2017

Star Wars feels like the one franchise that everyone agrees on that one fundamental thing: We want it to be good and we are hopeful it will be. I can’t think of a film franchise that offers so much hope with every installment. I’m not talking about what happens on screen either, that is for someone else to write. I’m just discussing the general public and their anticipation for each entry.

Film Review: ‘Somebody’s Darling’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2017

If you paid me $1 million, I wouldn’t be able to tell you why this movie is named Somebody’s Darling. I had no clue what this movie was about going into it, and after it ended, the title still made no sense. Somebody’s Darling isn’t a 1950s romp or a story about a lovable shelter dog named Darling just looking for a home. Instead, it’s a horror movie about a fraternity. The head of a fraternity named Christian (on the nose) falls for a young college girl named Sarah and the supernatural secrets about his fraternity start to show.

Film Review: ‘Inoperable’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2017

Anytime I see a horror movie that no one has ever heard of before, I get very nervous it is going to be an awful waste of time. Not that people didn’t work hard to put something on screen but because it is clear that the creator didn’t care enough to put something remotely decent on screen. I can handle a bad movie when it doesn’t work for me and rate it as such. When a movie is just so poorly constructed and thought out? I hate it.

Film Review: ‘Oklahoma City’!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 7th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

Oklahoma City‘ is a documentary about the tragic bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in 1995. It comes from writer/director Barak Goodman (‘American Experience‘, ‘Frontline‘) and was nominated for an Emmy along with the other producers on the project, Emily Singer Chapman, Mark Samels (a previous winner of several Emmy’s and three times as many nominations), and Susan Bellows (also an Emmy winner and multiple time nominee). PBS aired the doc at the earlier part of 2017 but it made the festival circuits this summer and was an Official Selection for the 2017 Sundance Film Festival where it met positive reviews.

Film Review: ‘Jane’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2017

There’s a new documentary from filmmaker Brett Morgen, which means you should pay attention to it and do everything you can to see it. Morgen made the two documentaries ‘The Kid Stays in the Picture‘ and ‘Cobain: Montage of Heck‘, meaning he knows exactly how to tell a compelling story and inform you on the intimacies of his subjects. His newest documentary is simply called ‘Jane‘ and focuses on Jane Goodall and her first foray into the chimpanzee study in Africa. What comes out of this documentary is pure bliss, joy, and wonder as we see a young Jane coexist with the wild chimps, which ultimately brought her to worldwide fame for showing us that we might share more than one or two things with our fellow primates.

Film Review: ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2017

When you have names like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep coming together for a movie, you expect something out of this world. That’s not really the case with this talented trio in their new film called ‘The Post‘. Don’t get me wrong, ‘The Post‘ is a good film, but like Spielberg’s recent movies in ‘Lincoln‘ and ‘War Horse‘, there is something magical missing. While the performances are all very good and the movie looks visually pleasing at all times, the script and delivery is a bit on the nose with emotion or lack thereof. Still, this is an important movie to watch in our current political climate as I imagine the true story it was based on back in the early 1970s, which paved the way and kept our “freedom of press” in tact.

Is this a dream? I’m dreaming, right? Quentin Tarantino is about to beam up to the ‘Star Trek‘ franchise and that’s not joke. Tarantino, who is a big fan of all films, came up with a ‘Star Trek‘ storyline for a new film and talked with JJ Abrams about it. Abrams liked it so much, because why wouldn’t he, and the two have started to assemble a writer’s room who will knock out a big script based on Tarantino’s idea.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

The Avengers are back and they’ve brought a few friends. The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe  packs the star-power in like gunpowder to a bomb making it ready to ignite a powder keg of awesome to kick off the summer. The usual suspects have all returned, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey, Jr., and Jeremy Renner. But there is room for more awesome, and we get it with the addition of Karen Gillan, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, and Zoe Saldana from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and far too many to mention to round out one kick-ass movie, or at least that’s what the trailer leads us to expect. We can’t forget to mention that Josh Brolin’s Thanos is back and will stop at nothing to get what he wants, the Infinity Stones.

Film Review: ‘Fear Us Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2017

ISIS has quickly become a hot topic in politics and the new organization of terror to defeat in the Middle East. Their ruthless genocide and enslavement of women has sparked major concern around the world, and many exasperated civilians are giving up their lives to answer the call of duty. Taking us right into the desert trenches of Northern Syria, the new documentary ‘Fear Us Women‘ showcases Hanna Bohman, a Canadian who recently reevaluated her life and volunteered to aid in a revolution of women’s rights. In just under thirty minutes, Director David Darg has gracefully shot an enlightening chronicle of sacrifice and bravery. He shows us that women can be fierce and, above all else, fearless.

Film Review: ‘Roman J. Israel Esq.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2017

Roman J. Israel, Esq. won’t be a box office hit, and if you aren’t black or a lawyer or somewhere in that venn-diagram, you probably aren’t wanting to go see it. But you should. If you’ve ever had a forgotten dream, no matter what your profession is or the color of your skin, you will identify with Roman. It’s uncomfortable to watch, it’s heartbreaking at times, but there’s laughter and Denzel Washington. Denzel is superb.  And honestly, Collin Farrell has redeemed himself in my eyes from The Lobster, so there’s really no reason to cast this one aside.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

A Deeper look into the ‘The Holiday’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2017

In 2006 a little movie by the name of ‘The Holiday’ was released unto the world from the place where all darkness flows. It now signifies the start of “Holiday Movie Season” for countless women across the globe. I believe it is solely responsible for the Hallmark Channel’s holiday film slate every November-December. However, the imitators don’t even come close to the unique mess this film is. I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie in one full sitting the past 5 years but it has been in such a rotation in my home that I’ve caught it in enough chunks to have seen it at least 10-12 full times since it came out in 2006. I really want to break down the absurdity of this movie to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘.

The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

Hey guys, Jana here,

So we’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to ever get another Incredibles movie and Pixar has finally granted our wish. The film isn’t slated to debut until June 15, 2018 we couldn’t expect much footage to be shared yet. What we do have is a teaser that is less than 60 seconds, but shows us that we’re at the same time-frame the original film ended. Either that or Jack-Jack just isn’t going to age, but John Lasseter revealed that the second film “starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on”. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 17th, 2017

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

Film Review: ‘The Disaster Artist’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2017

By now you must know about the “The Room.”  If by some chance you don’t know what it is, I would highly recommend viewing before watching “The Disaster Artist,” although it is by no means required.  Just as a cliff’s note, “The Room” is a cult film known as the best worst movie ever made.  It’s a melodramatic poorly acted mess, but it has hit a chord with enough people to gain midnight movie status, along with audience participation a-la Rocky Horror Picture Show.  It is a beast all of its own and it has drawn the love from college stoners to A list actors alike.  Naturally, in the center of the Venn Diagram of these fanbases, lies James Franco.

Searching to regain his spice for life, as well as a flux capacitor, Wade must battle ninjas, the yakuza, and a pack of sexually aggressive canines, as he journeys around the world to discover the importance of family, friendship, and flavor – finding a new taste for adventure and earning the coveted coffee mug title of World’s Best Lover.”

4K UHD Review: Westworld Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE SERIES


HBO’s new flagship show ‘Westworld‘ entered with a big bang in its first season. Since ‘Game of Thrones‘ is ending soon, HBO was ahead of the game and needed its new sci-fi action original show and ‘Westworld‘ was its name. That rhymed a little bit. Based on Michael Crichton’s story and film from 1973 of the same name, ‘Westworld‘ takes a theme park (much like Disneyland) to the next level. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you entered the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ ride at Disneyland.

Blu-ray Review: The Glass Castle!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE FILM


You probably have heard the name Jeannette Walls. She is a journalist that was known for her Gossip column for MSNBC, but she is now known world-wide for her amazing novel ‘The Glass Castle‘, which was a memoir about her life growing up with her dysfunctional family. Her novel stayed on the Best Seller list for 261 weeks. If you think about that’s about four years and yes, it’s that good. Of course, Hollywood made a movie about it, which was directed by the amazing Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and starred Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Hey guys, Jana here, 

It may have taken long enough, but Disney (to be read Kathleen Kennedy) finally found a director they can get along with when it comes to the super-successful ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. There was a ton of tension on-set between Kennedy and original ‘The Last Jedi‘ directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller which led to a parting of the ways and ideas for new directors were naming almost anyone in Hollywood to take up the reigns until Rian Johnson was named as successor. He stayed in step with Kennedy’s vision for the film and ultimately has gained enough trust to be given the power to develop a new trilogy of films that will live in the ‘Star Wars‘ universe, along with collaborator Ram Bergman, but a different galaxy.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

Film Review: ‘Lady Bird’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

Youth and revolt amidst a Catholic institution is not new territory, let’s be direct. But what’s more remarkable these days is taking a stale idea and making it appear fresh. Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut is a familiar story, yes, but this time the perspective is flipped and reversed into the female itinerary. ‘Lady Bird‘ is colorful, melancholic and genuine. It methodically tells the trivial and vital trials of a teenage girl’s life with such accuracy, it feels as if you’re staring into the mirror and seeing a former self.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

The comic book started in 2006 and was written by Garth Ennis (‘Preacher‘) and focused on a group of people known as ‘The Boys‘ who set out to take out corrupt superheroes who destroy the lives of many while trying to do their jobs.

Streep + Hanks + Spielberg = ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

The first trailer and poster for the film ‘The Post‘ is standing straight up. It’s a big deal, because it has Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in the lead roles with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. That’s a powerhouse right there. The film will release on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays, but really, they want to get it in for Oscar consideration. The film releases everywhere next year on January 12. In addition to Hanks and Streep, the film stars Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.

Scooby Doo and Batman are coming to Blu-ray Together!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2017

I’m gonna go ahead and say it. There won’t be a better film than this all year. On January 9th, 2018, Warner Bros. is releasing ‘Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ on Digital Streaming. How can Warner Bros. team up this duo? Well, the villains of the Batman universe have partnered up with the villains of the Scooby Doo universe to terrorize the city. Batman then decides to join the other detective agency of Mystery Inc with Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma to fight crime. There are so many scenarios I want to see played out here. I want to see Batman slap Fred. I want to see Velma and Daphne fight over Batman. I want to see Shaggy try to unmask Batman. I want to see Scooby wear a Bat-Dog costume. I want the Joker and Ghost Clown to torture civilians. I don’t think this is asking for too much.

‘Leatherface’ is ripping up the Blu-ray World!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2017

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ is perhaps one of the most terrifying and best horror films to ever be released. That was back in 1974. Tobe Hooper and that film really paved the way for many filmmakers and the horror genre over the years that continues to this day. We’ve seen sequels, prequels, reboots, remakes, and everything in between since then. The newest film is simply called ‘Leatherface‘, which takes its cue from the original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3‘ film. I haven’t seen this yet, but I’ve heard from a few people that it’s the best film since the original one in 1974. I’m not sure what to think about that, but I’ll have answers shortly for you on this. ‘Leatherface‘ acts as a prequel to other films as we get to see how ‘Leatherface‘ became the maniacal being he is known to be.

Frank Zappa fans have something to look forward to on the big screen and home video. There is a new feature length documentary called ‘Summer 82 – When Zappa Came to Sicily‘ that will be released and screened in theaters. Frank Zappa was one of the coolest people on the planet and one of the best musicians in the history of music. His only Grammy award was for his classical album, but if you know anything about Zappa, he wasn’t much known for classical music. The documentary will feature some never-before-seen concert and backstage footage, along with interviews with the band, family members, concert goers, and more. I can’t wait to see this.

Film Review #2: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2017

Taika Waititi legitimately reinvigorated  the marvel brand with Thor: Ragnarok. A lot of the criticism that Marvel movies get is that there are no stakes and we know that the heroes will always win. No kidding? That’s every superhero movie. No one thought Iron Man would die, no one thought Cap would die, no one thought Batman was dead in TDKR, no one thought (cared?) Superman died in BvS. Waititi proves that not taking a paint by numbers destroy the world story too seriously can be a damn blast.

You might be able to drink your fancy ales very soon again with new ‘Lord of the Rings‘ projects coming to television in the near future. That’s right. J.R.R. Tolkien’s estate is looking to make more money by selling the rights to ‘The Lord of the Rings‘ universe on television for a potential series. The word around the water-cooler is that the estate is looking for $200 or more million for just the rights. That means $200 million just to have the okay to make the series, not including any production costs, casting, paying actors, or anything.

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 31st, 2017

Thor is starring in his third stand-alone film called ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ and brings a much needed change to the character in the best possibly way. Thor now has a fun personality and great comedic timing, mostly due to Chris Hemsworth amazing acting chops here. In addition to that, the film is steeped in a hypnotic, yet hyper-active color scheme that looks like Willy Wonka and Andy Warhol got together and decorated a city. In fact, Wonka’s theme ‘Pure Imagination’ is a song that plays in the film. It’s not all cold and stiff dialogue here anymore with brown or earth toned aliens and robots that Thor has to use his hammer to fight. Everyone and everything is covered in bright primary and pastel colors that creates a breath of fresh air in this stale universe. That’s all thanks to filmmaker Taika Waititi for giving his unique vision on this big budget film ($180 million). In previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, particularly with Thor, things have been sour and gloomy.

You’re never too old for this shit as Warner Bros. is talking with everyone about a new ‘Lethal Weapon‘ film that brings back the original cast. According to some sources, director Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon, Superman, The Goonies) would return in the director’s chair with Channing Gibson writing the screenplay. That name isn’t a typo either. Channing Gibson wrote ‘Lethal Weapon 4‘ and ‘Walking Tall‘ with The Rock. This would also bring back Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in their respective and iconic roles.

The Florida Project is the most important movie of 2017. It is a beautiful look at the resiliency and hope of childhood. It is also the most powerful depiction of a segment of the American population often overlooked in America and certainly passed over in film. Not outright poverty but just a group of people doing enough to survive.

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.

Good news, everyone. The entire ANTI- catalog of Tom Waits albums will be re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl, which will include a new remixed version of Real Gone. All of this will be available before the holiday season, which will make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. Tom Waits is one of the coolest people on planet Earth and has released videos, songs, and movies that always evoke emotions, laughs, and fun. I just hope he’s working on a new album and will once again tour, because if you’ve never seen Tom Waits live in concert, you really haven’t lived yet. It looks like all releases will come with 2 LPs that are 180g each along with a digital download card as well, which is just amazing.

Film Review: ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2017

Written by: Audrey Evans

If asked to refer back to their fondest memories, most adults would likely gloat about experiences from their youth. And honestly, what individual hasn’t reminisced about days of innocence and longed for that childhood comfort of a bedtime story? In ‘Goodbye Christopher Robin,’ we’re given a glimpse into the life and inspiration behind Author A.A. Milne’s book Winnie-the-Pooh – a children’s classic that is collectively referred to as the most cherished of all time. Though true life stories are often challenging to represent, Director Simon Curtis uses his aptitude for history to create an authentic bio-drama that dodges the sentimental distaste of many, and also explores the paramount effects of childhood celebrity and war.

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world. Schools have both required and banned the reading for reasons of profanity and its message. Rebel in the Rye details Salinger’s (Nicholas Hoult) life and progression as a writer. From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

Would it really be so ridiculous to assume that almost every role that Ryan Gosling has ever played was based on his agent just laying two jackets out and Ryan deciding which one was better? More importantly, is Ryan Gosling even a good actor? Are we sure his jackets aren’t giving him this power?

Film Review: ‘Mark Felt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2017

Written By: Beka Perlstein

As I watched Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching a movie about modern day politics. I wasn’t around during the Nixon years, so the story itself was intriguing to me, but as the film played I just became increasingly frustrated that history was seemingly repeating itself. Mark Felt was as they said, “the G-Man’s G Man.” He worked for the FBI for 31 years and it’s made clear at the outset of the film that under Hoover, he was the guy that held the key to Pandora’s Box. Felt knew when to talk, when to keep his mouth shut, when to bark and when to bite. Everyone in Washington knew not to cross him for fear of their secrets leaking. But that wasn’t Mark Felt. He. Did. Not. Leak.

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

‘Phish: A Live One’ is Getting the LP Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

Phish’s first live album called ‘A Live One‘ was released back in 1995, which means this is 22 years old and makes me wish I was still that young again when I first heard this album. It was released on CD and cassette back in 1995, which was a time when vinyl wasn’t really being produced. The album was recorded mostly through Phish’s 1994 tour and is regarded a big fan favorite.

The New ‘Justice League’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

 

 

 

A new ‘Justice League‘ trailer is here and shows a ton more footage. It’s just too bad that it isn’t all that great and once again, there is no Superman. Well, Supes does show up, but only in a dream walking through his home farm in Smallville like Russell Crowe meandering through the tall grass in ‘Gladiator‘, which is funny, because Crowe is Supes’ father. Other than that, Superman is not in the trailer, which furthers the stupidity of DC in trying to surprise us with a Superman appearance in ‘Justice League‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Imagine a film where Steven Yeun is covered in blood. *yawn* We’ve seen that dozens of times on ‘The Walking Dead‘, right? Let me assure you, we’ve never seen him like this! From the twisted director, Joe Lynch, comes ‘Mayhem‘.

Short Film Review: ‘Highway’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 5th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Next, we have ‘Highway,’ another foreign entry by English Director Vanessa Gazy. As the vast scene of an open mountain highway reveals itself, there’s a mystery behind this nameless teenage hitchhiker (Odessa Young), who is aimlessly roaming the road and listening to her vintage walkman radio. A poppy tune can be heard playing, but quickly the song fades and a newscast signal takes over as she tries to adjust the station. Losing the battle, the man’s voice continues, and confusion quickly takes over while she gazes up to the clear sky.

Step aside, Los Angeles. Austin is quickly becoming the new city of stars. From SXSW to the Austin City Limits, and just this past month, the annual Fantastic Fest (the nation’s most diverse film festival), the city is bursting with art! This year there was a plethora of strange and unusual films waiting to make their mark, and I’m here to tell you about two that might be short in length, but tall with impact!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

 

It’s that time of the year again, where we induct musicians and singers into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Over the past few years, the term Rock & Roll is used loosely, because according to this list, some of these artists are not Rock & Roll at all. Still, this is the voting period and you can vote on who deserves to be inducted, which will air on HBO.

Netflix is Raising Prices Again!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Netflix has a spending problem and we the customers are paying for it. #Bullshit The price of the most popular plan, which is the streaming plan that is normally $9.99. Prices are going up 10%, which is only a dollar a month, making it $10.99 now. I’d be okay with this, but nothing is happening to warrant this other than that the shit-heads at Netflix are selling the farm for more content.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The most popular and well-known man in the world was and maybe still is Michael Jackson. He had fans all over the world and inspired not only the common folk, but many great musicians over the past 30 years years. Michael Jackson won tons of awards for his music, produced and created some of the best songs ever made, delivered the best music videos, and started a big charity called Heal the World. His life was in the tabloids constantly with hideous scum people making up stories that forced him to be a recluse for most of his life. He was just a man who became a father to three kids and when he was pushing 50 years old, he was more or less forced to perform 50 concerts as a way to make ends meet and provide for his family. Much has been said over the many years about Michael Jackson.
