BRIDGE – Chapter One

by Justin Cline on Oct 31st, 2011

CHAPTER ONE

 

There are pockets within the city where even the hacks don’t travel.  Requests for passage to such places are sometimes met with laughter, oftentimes with the threat of violence, but always—always—refusal of fare.  It would seem that even madmen have moments of clarity, wherein common sense cannot be denied.  If only the same were true of the driver who delivered the blonde to The Bethany Hotel.

Metallica to Put Out Feature Film!!!

Metallica hasn’t hit the screen scene for a few years, but they’re back now and bigger than ever – and in 3D. The band is self-financing the project and has hired Charlotte Huggins (Journey to the Center of the Earth) to produce. I have to say that Journey has been my fave 3D movie effects-wise so far, so I’m excited to see what Huggins can do for one of my favorite bands.

Paranormal Weekend for Paranormal Activity 3!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 28th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte reporting…

It was a big weekend for the Paranormal Activity franchise! Records were broken as the third installment made $54 million at the box office. It’s the most earned in three months for any movie, and the most ever for a horror franchise. As PA3 was made for only $5 million, there’s quite a profit there already.

Seems like most of the really important music to come out of the 20th Century was very topical in nature, songs that reflected what was happening in life and society at that time.

Take one of Bob Dylan’s early songs, “The Times They Are A-Changing”, Woody Guthrie’s “Dust Bowl Ballads” and The Weavers’ rendition of “What Side Are You On,” a song originally written for the United Mine Workers Union in Kentucky in the early 1930s, shifted slightly to bring attention to the growing fears of Communism and McCarthyism in the 1950s. All of these songs were powerful then and still very much are today, as well as being important documents of the American fabric of history, how the music has shaped our people as a country, and how change in our society has been brought through by the platform of music. The exact same can be said of John Lennon and his Plastic Ono Band’s “Power To The People” song, written and released in 1971. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi Bryan Here….

Finally this film got made.  ‘Anonymous’ has been in the hands of director Roland Emmerich for almost a decade.  He has wanted to make the film for quite some time, but has never found the proper funding nor right studio.  Well his dreams came reality and he finally go to make the film he wanted.  Emmerich is most known for directing ‘Independence Day’, ‘2012’, ‘The Day After Tomorrow’, and ‘10,000 B.C.’.  Not exactly quality films.  I will say this is the second best of Emmerich films.  Second to ‘Stargate’.  But that’s not saying much.  ‘Stargate’ is AWESOME.  ‘Anonymous’ is not.  Anonymous’ at best is a jumbled and confused decent attempt at a great film.

FedMex Reviews ‘Anonymous’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2011

FedMex Here….

This hurts because it could have been great, but…….

So, you know how every time there’s a new Roland Emmerich movie out, you get all excited because you know that you’re gonna go to the theater and goof off with your friends and eat some hot dogs and candy and probably goof off some more until all of a sudden there’s gigantic explosions and the world’s ending (again) and then there’s more dumb storyline and bad acting and bad directing but you sit there because you know the explosions are coming back.

Hi Bryan Here…

This little gem of a film is exactly that.  Remarkable and nail biting as all hell.  I knew very little walking into ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’, but after its viewing, I knew I witnessed something special and spectacular.  The less you know about the film going in the better, so I will try to keep this review light on spoilers.  Bu tI just walked away from this film with a new hope for filmmaking and storytelling. With so much crap out there these days, it was so refreshing to see this film.  ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’ was original, beautifully shot, tense, scary, darkly romantic, and very well acted.  I wish I could buy a ticket for the world to see this movie.

Hi Bryan Here….

Disney has been doing such a great job recently releasing quite a bit of their back catalogue on 3D Blu-ray, and not to mention their Pixar films in 3D blu-ray.  But every once in a while they release one of their films that is a classic 2D animated film from my childhood.  In this case it is Winnie The Pooh in an all new 64 minute film.  This Winnie the Pooh film proves that even the simpler of films can still be some of the best out there.  I highly recommend this movie.

FedMex Reviews ‘Martha Marcy May Marlene’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 26th, 2011

FedMex Here….

Martha Marcy May Marlene.  Behind this bizarre title, which will actually make sense later, is an equally bizarre film.  It’s a compelling depiction of a young woman (a wonderful Elizabeth Olsen) who escapes from a cult and attempts to integrate back into normal life.  The film from there on becomes an intense and surreal experience using familiar, though effective, cinematic techniques  and themes to gaze eerily into the world that this poor girl left behind, as well as her near impossible task of coping with returning to normal life.

Classic Waxxx: Wilson Pickett “Hey Jude”

by NapkinArt on Oct 25th, 2011

Despite being a hardcore ‘Beatles’ enthusiast, and perhaps a bit of a purist, too, I’m always morbidly curious to hear a Beatles cover from time to time. Some are good, some are bad, and some are just downright awful. Surprisingly, Wilson Pickett’s version of “Hey Jude” has some teeth to it, a version I certainly don’t mind owning in my record collection. Read the rest of this entry »

New Music: Ryan Adams “Ashes & Fire”

by NapkinArt on Oct 24th, 2011

I know there are several people out there like me who count down the days for new Ryan Adams music. Thankfully, the wait is over as Adams’ latest LP, “Ashes & Fire” is now on the streets.

“Ashes & Fire” is Adams’ first record of new material after a lengthy (according to Adams) two year hiatus, and one that is much more mellow that some of his previous solo efforts. That doesn’t go without saying that the material is second class or fluff, but perhaps the softer approach is Adams easing back into things after taking some time away from music.

Jackson (oh, please), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Don Johnson (Machete), and Kurt Russell (Escape from New York, back in the day).

Elvis and Nixon, an independent film debut-directed by Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride), has some pretty good star power attached. Eric Bana (Hanna) will play Elvis Presley and Danny Huston (Leverage) will play the infamous Richard Nixon. The story is based on the 1970 meeting between the two, where Presley brought Nixon a Colt .45 as a present. The meeting was over Presley’s dream to be a Federal Agent at Large in the fight against drugs.

Tom Waits Brings The Goods On “Bad As Me”

Tom Waits' "Bad As Me" LP.

As true as that idea my be, rockers like Tom Waits (now 61), who continues to play by his own rules and charming madness, again goes beyond the borders of his own conventionalism with his 17th studio album, “Bad As Me” now available for the taking.

When one of the students gets separated from her friends, the boys try to lend a hand, but as the misunderstanding grows, so does the body count. TUCKER AND DALE VS EVIL has been a hit on the festival circuit, debuting at Sundance, and winning the Midnight Audience Award at SXSW, the Jury Prize for First Feature at Fantasia, the Best Director award at Fantaspoa, and the Best Motion Picture Award at Sitges.

I am too old for the Phineas and Ferb craze and culture, but I must say that this cartoon movie and the cartoon itself is quite spectacular.  Don’t get me wrong.  It is silly and stupid, but I can totally see this cartoon on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim line up.  It just needs the little push to become a little more raunchy and it will totally have it.  Phineas and Ferb I believe started in 2007 and this film ‘Across the 2nd Dimension’ was released earlier in 2011.  These crazy characters and hilarious and exciting adventure prove that Disney’s Phineas and Ferb can not only be loved by the young ones, but by teens and adults.

I know what you’re thinking. I can read your mind. I am peering into the vortex of your psyche…

“…what.”

No question mark. Just flat-out “what.” Yeah, that’s what I was thinking too.

Akira, originally made in 1988, is the anime cult classic that really brought the genre to America. It’s a sci-fi, cyberpunk epic about two boys who follow very different paths. One, the leader of a biker gang, must save the other from the government’s cruel experiments when he shows potentially dangerous psychic powers. Made when animation was still fairly so-so, Akira broke down the barriers keeping America from sampling the beauty of Japanese anime.

Hi Bryan Here…..

I’m a huge sucker for HBO original programming.  HBO is pretty consistent in how amazing their original programming is.  With ‘How to Make it in America’, it just fell flat to me.  The show is okay to some degree.  I like the actors in the show especially Lake Bell.  She is going high places.  And Eddie Kaye Thomas (Finch) is pretty great too, but I just don’t really identify with any of the characters.  But I might be one of the odd men out on this one as I know tons of friends love the show.  But this release is packed with tons of extras and a pretty decent video/audio presentation.

Bryan Review ‘Bambi II’!!! (A Blu-Ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

As of recently, Disney has been pumping out all their catalogue direct to home video releases on blu-ray.  This 2006 film really isn’t a sequel or prequel of sorts, but rather a story from the first film’s time frame.  I just say, since 1994 when Disney started all of these direct to home video releases, ‘Bambi II’ is one of the better ones.  Now that’s not saying much since most of their direct to video films are not that fun to watch with the exception of ‘Lion King 1 1/2’, it also isn’t the worst one.  There is enough fun and adventure in ‘Bambi II’ that it entertained me and I would consider watching again at some point in the far future.

Hi Bryan Here….

Julie Taymor is at it again with a Shakespearean play with ‘The Tempest’.  Taymor is known for directing ‘Titus’ and ‘Across the Universe’, and not to mention the recent failed attempt to bring Spider-man to the stage.  I have no doubt in my mind that Taymor’s ‘The Tempest’ will be a favorite amongst drama students, English majors, and Shakespeare fans.  Taymor’s visuals are stunning and breathtaking and the cast including Helen Mirren, Russell Brand, Chris Cooper, Djimon Hounsou, and Alan Cumming are all amazing here.  This is a complete  visual experience, and if you are a fan of style and magnificent visuals, then this is the film for you.

Grand Theft Auto Coming to iPad!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Oh good. More opportunity to be as violent as the mood strikes you. Anyone with an iPad will soon be able to rape, pillage, and murder as often as they like.

Grand Theft Auto, one of the most successful franchises in the video game world, is coming to the iPad. RockStar Games is also adapting other franchises, like Max Payne and Red Dead Redemption, for the tablet world, but GTA is the first attempt. Games like Angry Birds have apparently been used to keep us happy until “they” could figure out how to give us actual video games for our tablets.

Steve Carell and Channing Tatum Might Strike Gold!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Bennett Miller is known for getting the best performances out of his actors, and thus for earning them Oscars. Philip Seymour Hoffman won Best Actor for Capote, and Brad Pitt is getting nods and buzz for Moneyball. Now, he’s possibly letting Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe) and Steve Carell (Evan Almighty) ride his coattails for a new film that’s already generating some Oscar talk.

Hi Bryan Here….

That’s right Cusack and Knoxville will star in this what seems like uproarious comedy film titled ‘Carnaval’.  Cusack will play a sports scout sent to Rio de Janeiro during the over-the-top bacchanalia of Carnaval to recruit the world’s best soccer player with the promise that if he signs the star, he will inherit the agency. Knoxville plays his best friend, a musician who tags along and has an affair with a woman who turns out to be the player’s girlfriend, derailing the signing mission.

Like a good scotch I like a good Jazz record. Smooth, with a sophisticated bite, or with a little bit of age so as to taste and savor a bit of the barrel’s flavor and characteristics. I enjoy these these qualities in my Jazz records, too, and Verve Records has been known to be a fine label when it comes to Jazz music; sophisticated and exciting all within the same rhythm of breath and beat.

Hasbro has just gotten in bed with J.J. Abrams and Paramount for Micronauts, a film based on the successful toys (or I assume they’re successful, as a movie is in the works. I’ve never heard of them.) The film will be written by Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese, the scribes that brought you Zombieland, which at least gives us a giggle.

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘The Phantom Carriage’ has arrived on blu-ray through the spectacular Criterion Collection company.  And once again, Criterion knocks this release out of the park with its stunning hi-def transfer and the amazing extras that is packed on this release.  I’m a huge fan of silent films and this creepy 1921 film by Victor Sjostrom was way ahead of its time and the effects that were done for the time were incredible.  If you are a fan of silent films and horror movies, then this film is for you.  A must buy.

That’s right.  “Man in suit.” “Man in suit.” “Man in suit.” “Man in suit.” “Man in suit.”  The original Godzilla film from 1954 is getting a blu-ray release through the Criterion.  This is AWESOME news.  Criterion is simply the best home video company on the market.  They have the best audio/video transfers and the best extras.  And quite possible the best art work on their DVDs and blu-rays.  I am looking forward to this so much.  ‘Godzilla’ comes out January 24th, 2012.

Steve Guttenberg has been missing from the screen for about twenty years. People actually believed he was dead. He had a good run in the 80’s, and then just kind of vanished. It’s not that he was gone, per se, he just was starring in movies that no one cared to see. And should not see. Ever.

Marlon Wayans hasn’t been on TV for sixteen years. I didn’t miss him, but as The Wayans Bros. ran for five seasons, I’m apparently the only one.Nonetheless, Wayans is making a return with a sibling-cop (as opposed to buddy-cop) sitcom on ABC. He will write it, executive produce it, and star in it. Joining him in the executive producer’s chair is Lisa Blum, his manager, and Rick Alvarez of Wayans Bros Entertainment.

Eckhart to be Hot Again as ‘Beach Boys’ Drummer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Excuse my language up there, but he is. Moving on.

Aaron Eckhart is set to play Dennis Wilson in The Drummer, a biopic based on the last six years of Wilson’s life. The man’s best music was written during this period; his solo masterpiece “Pacific Ocean Blue” came out shortly before his tragic and sudden death in 1983. The only Beach Boy who actually surfed, Wilson drowned in the Marina Del Rey. If it’s shown in the movie, it will probably gain similar reviews as 127 Hours – harrowing, violent images at the end while the rest of the movie is haunting and beautiful.

‘City State’ to Be Remade in English!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

I’m resigned. Originality in Hollywood will never return. But, if it has to give up on novelty, at least it’s giving us good stuff.

City State is an Icelandic crime drama centered around four people caught up in the underworld. When a foreign mafia takes over the drug market, their lives intersect. There’s a bad cop in love with a whore, a revenge-seeking female cop, an aging crime boss with a heart condition, and a mechanic-turned-avenging-angel. Even a remake could be completely engrossing. It sort of sounds like Sin City meets Crash.

Rubicon to Launch in Three Medias!!!

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Christopher McQuarrie, writer of such great scripts as Valkyrie and The Usual Suspects, is launching his latest project: Rubicon, an action franchise which will span film, graphic novels, and video games. Ambitious indeed, and he can probably pull it off. Rubicon has been described co-producers Mark Long and Dan Capel as “Seven Samurai (Akira Kurosawa, 1954), set in Afghanistan with Navy SEALS as the heroes and the Taliban the villains.”

My friends have probably gotten tired of me complaining about how Hollywood never makes anything original these days. Everything’s a sequel or prequel or remake or based on a novel/foreign film/comic book/video game. It’s not any different with this Pinocchio prequel project, except that it could be really fantastic.

Let me get this straight. Sesame Street, aimed at pre-K children who have not yet learned to read, is in negotiations to make comic books.

Supposedly, the books will be both educational and entertaining. If the project goes through, they will be available in both print and digital formats. The comics will feature the beloved characters from Sesame Street and will be produced by Sesame Workshop and Ape Entertainment.
