BRIDGE – Chapter Six

by Justin Cline on Nov 30th, 2011

CHAPTER SIX

 

By the time Bridge reached The Bethany’s double doors, he was out of breath.  Though the rain had started to taper off, the sun still refused to make an appearance.  At this point it would have felt like too little, too late anyway.  Best to just wait and try again tomorrow.

Hi Bryan Here…..

 

Here is the 40 minute interview with actor Michael Fassbender (X-MEN: FIRST CLASS/300/INGLORIOUS BASTERDS) an director Steve McQueen (Hunger) on their new film ‘Shame’.  This film was fantastic.  I really hope to see this film nominated at award season time.  It deserves it.  These two gentlemen are class acts and give an in depth interview on the serious topic of the film and what went in to making this fine piece of cinema.  Enjoy.

Hi Bryan Here….

 

ABC Family has picked up one of its best rated series, Pretty Little Liars, for a third season, which is slated to launch next summer and they are getting 24 episodes.  That’s huge for a drama.   Big news for the cast and crew of the show.  Now I have never seen an episode of this show, but one of our writers was doing an episode recap and review of each episode which were strikingly hilarious.  Hope she comes back for more.  She has her work cut out for her.

Hi Bryan Here….

That’s right.  Universal has hired David Ayer to write the script for the updated version of Scarface.  We wrote about this a month or two ago about how this Scarface won’t necessarily be a sequel or remake, but rather just and updated version.  The film will put a new spin on the outlaw tale first released in 1932 with Paul Muni playing an Italian who took over Chicago, and then turned into the ultra violent 1983 film that starred Al Pacino as Tony Montana, a Cuban who took over the cocaine trade in 1980s Miami.

It’s that time of year again where traditions reign supreme: Yule tide greetings, holiday parties, fighting with family, caroling, trimming the tree, spiked egg nog and awesomely bad Christmas album covers. It’s nice to know some things never change, like there being no such thing as a good Christmas album cover. So, as you settle in for your long winter’s nap with a cup of hot cocoa, here is another round of groovy Christmas albums covers to give you a giggle. Read the rest of this entry »

It can be argued that The Rolling Stones are in fact the greatest rock and roll band in the world, one that is still touring and recording music nearly 50 years after their debut. In that period of time the band certainly has amassed one hell of an impressive archive of unreleased studio and live recordings, and to every fan’s delight, The Stones recently launched their ‘Stones Archive’ website, which gives fans the incredible opportunity to take a peek inside that treasure trove of material, bit by bit.

As time goes by the albums that have already obtained classic status continue to become greater classics, nay, timeless. Of course, there is also room for more recent albums of late to obtain such status, but some become classics the day of their release, such as The Black Keys’ debut LP “The Big Come Up.”

I thought I take a moment to recognize a really great record from the last ten years into a new segment for Classic Waxxx. It was also an opportune moment to word play on “Black Friday” as well as celebrate the band’s first release, as they ready their seventh and latest LP “El Camino,” which is sure to be a great addition to the rest of their catalog.

CHAPTER FIVE

 

The assassin showed no signs of stopping.  The way he barreled down the sidewalk—his pistol making him a path—, one would think he knew something of Bridge’s reputation.  If so, he had to be aware that even though the man had taken a bullet, Bridge could only be slowed down for so long.  Once he recovered, he’d be mad as all hell.

Hi Bryan Here….

Criterion rolls out the red carpet yet again with the re-release of the instant cult classic ‘Dazed and Confused’.  This time it is on glorious blu-ray.  This movie will live on forever.  There really isn’t another movie like it.  The characters, the music, the dialogue are all quoted and duplicated today.  This film started the careers of tons of big named actors including: Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Joey Lauren Adams, and a few others.  This re-release is virtually the same as the previous criterion release, but in blu-ray.  And let me just say, it is worth the upgrade.  The picture and sound are top notch.

Record Store Day Black Friday 2011 Delivers Again

by NapkinArt on Nov 21st, 2011

As long as I can remember Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday. There really is no holiday on the calendar that centers around food and family, and it’s the one day of the year where it is ok to stuff yourself into a food coma. Thanksgiving is also a favorite holiday for many, but many love the holiday because of the shopping day after known as ‘Black Friday.’

The older I get the less inclined I feel to venture out into the crazy public and spend money the day after Thanksgiving, especially since I feelcompletely lethargic after all that turkey and stuffing. But thanks to Record Store Day Black Friday, I again have an excuse to spend some cash on music and perhaps walk off some of those calories. Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan Reviews ‘Cars 2’ in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 19th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…..

I liked two things from Cars 2.  It looks really good and crisp.  And Bruce “man-god” Campbell lends his voice to one of the cars.  That’s it.  I don’t understand why Pixar lowered the bar with this one.  Cars 2 actually should have been called “The Mater Show” since the film it 95% about him, which is just terrible on every level.  Maybe it’s because I find Larry the Cable Guy just an untalented guy.  The first Cars film has always been my least favorite of all the Pixar films, but that’s not saying much, because every Pixar film is AWESOME.  AWESOME until this sequel.  However this is one of the best looking Pixar films ever to grace blu-ray.  And the 3D is top notch after the first big scene of the film.  But does that make it worth the buy?  You be the judge.

We reported a few weeks ago that Arrested Development would begin a new season after a few year hiatus.  Several networks including Netflix were trying to get the rights to hit comedy series.  Will it looks like Netflix has won that battle.  Surprising move, but I think it will do very very well on Netflix.  But over the past few months Netflix has lost almost 1 million subscribers due to their hefty price increase in return for doing absolutely nothing to improve the service.  I was one of those subscribers who cancelled, but fuck….now I have to reinstate my account.  I just hope Netflix distributes their original series in physical form.  If they don’t I will be super pissed.  Read the press release below.

Hollywood has a rich tradition of releasing competing movie projects at virtually the same time.  Armageddon squared off against Deep Impact.  Before that, Big duked it out with Vice Versa and roughly 87 other body-swapping comedies, the last of which was kept on a shelf until finally being released earlier this year (The Change-Up).  So it is that two studios have set their sights on updated interpretations of Snow White, currently scheduled to be released with 3 months of each other.

Trailer Analysis – The Hunger Games

by Justin Cline on Nov 17th, 2011

Translating a book–especially a popular one–to the big screen is a tricky thing.  If you’re in need of confirmation on this, just look to the Harry Potter series, where the movies were just as often accused of getting it wrong as they were praised for getting it right.  Should the filmmakers be more concerned with producing a good movie or being slavishly reverent to the source material?  That’s a difficult question to answer.  For my money, the film must be able to stand on its own while not entirely disavowing the core of what made it popular in the first place.  The cast and crew must continuously walk a fine line between winning over a new audience and alienating the old one.

That having been said, let’s take a look at the most recent trailer for The Hunger Games. Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan Reviews Toy Story 3 in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Dare I say Toy Stoy 3 is my favorite of the three Toy Story films?  Yes, I dare say it.  Pixar has given me so much over the years in the ways of great and original stories, characters, laughs, and tears.  Upon hearing that Pixar would be making yet a third film, I was excited yet a little weary on a third sequel.  Track records show the third sequels of many films have been terrible.  I was just hoping this would not befall Pixar’s flawless track record.  Well let me just say, that Toy Story made me laugh out loud several times, shed a few tears, and talk about how great the film was for weeks.  Not to mention that the 3D in Toy Story 3 is top notch.  This is the best the 3D has looked out of any of the Pixar films.  This is a must own film and must have for any 3D lover.  Toy Story 3 rocks!!

Bryan Reviews Toy Story 2 in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Toy Story 2 is definitely in my top list of best sequels ever.  It shares the list with Godfather 2.  It’s always a crap shoot with sequels, but Pixar did it right with Toy Story.  It added new lovable characters along with some new villains.  And again with the 3D, this sequel amps of the 3D from the first film.  The story is just as good as the first one and adds new laughs and plot.  It never seems redundant from the first film and is always quick to satisfy.  Also let us note that this was the first time Pixar toyed with my emotions making me choke up.  They enjoy doing this to me in later movies like Wall-E, and Up.  But, Toy Story 2 3D edition is badass on all levels and any 3D enthusiast and lover of films and Pixar should rush out to get this.

Bryan Reviews Toy Story in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

 

I can’t believe it has been over a decade since Pixar won me over with Toy Story.  Year after year, Pixar has shown me their films and for three years in a row their films were my absolute favorite of the year. It all started with Toy Story.  I always thought as I’m sure most of you did that when I left my room or house, that my toys were alive and talked and had fun together without me.  Toy Story showed me how this could be real.  Not only did Toy Story create what I dreamed of every day, but it paved the way for every CG film made since then.  Toy Story was the first.  It truly was a milestone and achievement in filmmaking.  And add to that they amazing story, cast, and music.  I whole heartedly love this movie.

Hi Bryan Here….

Now I’ll be honest.  I have only seen the first Pirates film and now I have seen the latest ‘On Stranger Tides’ film.  I didn’t care much for the first film.  I felt it dragged and was too boring. I know it had a huge budget and was full of adventure, but the adventure and action was less than stellar.  I know I’m the odd man out on this issue as I know tons of friends love this series of films and swear by it, but really never did much for me.  Saying that, I do think Johnny Depp is AMAZING in these films.  He definitely deserves an Oscar WIN.  Other than that and maybe the fact that Keith Richards has a little something to do with the films, I just can’t get into it.  Same rings true for this ‘On Stranger Tides’ sequel.  Yes, it had a bit more thrill and fun, but ultimately fell short.  I wish I felt differently.  I really want to like these movies, but sadly I can’t do it.

FedMex Reviews Lars Von Triers ‘Melancholia’!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 14th, 2011

FedMex Here…..

Advertised as a cerebral science fiction story, Melancholia presents the story of two women’s reactions to the end of the world.  Now, I personally wouldn’t call this sci-fi in the least, since the only science fiction components act as little more than a backdrop to do a character experiment.  Rather, this is actually a surrealist expression and study of two different personalities.

BRIDGE – Chapter Three

by Justin Cline on Nov 9th, 2011

CHAPTER THREE

 

“How did you hear about me?”

This was a standard question on Bridge’s part.  He asked it of every potential client, though maybe not for the reasons one might think.  It had nothing to do with growing his little one-room business.  If anything, he wanted fewer people knocking on his door and he needed to know how the ones who did knock were finding out about his services in the first place.

BRIDGE – Chapter Two

by Justin Cline on Nov 2nd, 2011

CHAPTER TWO

 

The hallway was narrow, much narrower than any architect in his right mind would have designed.  Had the blonde stretched her arms straight out to her sides, she would have run the risk of rubbing her knuckles against the walls.  Instead, she drew her elbows in tight and tested each new step before committing to it, as if the floor might give way at any moment.

Paul Walker in Talks to Star in Besson Project!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2011

I’ll be honest: I’m not totally sure why this movie is happening.

Don’t get me wrong. Luc Besson has been a major love of mine since I was nine and seeing The Fifth Element for the first time (and the eighty since). But this is remake of a movie that Besson was involved with the first time. It even stars one of the original leads (David Belle). Admittedly, I’m not sure you could do a remake of Banlieue 13 without Belle, since he created the sport that pervades the film.

Ah well. I’m sure it’s going to be awesome. I do love me some Besson.

Grace Kelly Film to Be Made!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2011

Beautiful, talented, and more than meets the eye, Grace Kelly entranced audiences and then the political world for many years. When she died in 1982, 100 million people watched her funeral. These days, the people would be more interested in her acting career than her political one. Hollywood, however, is going to pay a tribute not to the actress, but to the princess.

Pitt Teams Up with McQueen and Fassbender!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2011

For a while now, Steve McQueen (Shame) and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) have been making movies together. From 2008’s Hunger, which is now in the Criterion Collection, to the NC-17 rated Shame, they’ve been garnering quite a bit of critical acclaim from the film world. Now, their new project has drawn in another big name: Brad Pitt. He’s another one that if I need to tell you what he’s been in, you need to watch more movies. Or get out from under your rock. Though I’m sure it’s a nice rock.

Terry Sheridan:
I mean, when you think back on the vast scheme of your hugely adventurous life... where do I fit in? Was I the love of your life, or just another bump on the road? Was I time well spent? Four months? More good than bad? Come on, it had to be more than that, am I right?
