Hi, Bryan Here…

As we have previously reported, there is going to be a ‘Leprechaun’ remake.  This time, Lionsgate is receiving help from WWE (yes, that WWE), to make the film.  We already knew that WWE’s character ‘Hornswoggle’ (Dylan Postl) will be playing the Leprechaun that there will be two films at least for this new reboot of the franchise.

‘Titanic’ Hits Blu-ray in September!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

James Cameron’s ‘Titanic’ has been officially announced for 3D/2D Bluray, and will be released this September.  I imagine this is going to look stunning, but sadly, it’s just not a good movie.  There will be over 2.5 hours of new footage and behind the scenes extras never before released on this combo pack as well as the all new 3D conversion.  I think I’ll pass.

But when a mysterious package mistakenly arrive at Kumar’s door on Christmas Eve, his attempts to redirect it to Harold’s house ends with the “high grade” contents – and Harold’s father-in-law’s prize Christmas tree – going up in smoke. With his in-laws out of the house for the day, Harold decides to cover his tracks, rather than come clean. Reluctantly embarking on another ill-advised journey with Kumar, through New York City, their search for the perfect replacement tree takes them through party heaven – and almost blows Christmas Eve sky high.

‘The Exorcist’ Is Being Remade!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Break out the split pea soup, because it’s an excellent day for an exorcism.  That’s right, folks.  ‘The Exorcist’ is getting remade, but probably not the way you’re thinking it will be.  It’s been about 40 years since the original was unleashed in cinemas across the world, and still, it is one of the most celebrated and most horrifying film experiences of several generations.

Taylor Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2012

Taylor Here….

I was worried about Men in Black III.  Almost every minute of Men and Black II made me wish I’d snuck in a beer or six, and I don’t think I could take more disappointment from Will Smith.  I still haven’t fully forgiven him for Hancock. The third installment turned out to be about 1000% better than the second effort, chock full of witty one-liners, truly disgusting alien encounters, and a few good men who look damn fine in black suits and skinny ties.

FedMex Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 24th, 2012

FedMex Here…

When Men in Black came out in 1997, we got a very different and original script showcasing one of Hollywood’s most popular actors alongside one of Hollywood’s most respected actors as an elite group of government agents that keep aliens under control on Earth.  Five years later, someone slapped together a sequel that made no sense.  It featured a Jar-Jar Binks-like alien, and had us shaking our heads in disappointment.

Gary Oldman has just signed on to star in MGM’s remake of ‘Robocop’.  If you didn’t know that ‘Robocop’ was being remade, well now you do.  Blasphemy, I know.  Joel Kinnaman will play Alex Murphy/Robocop with Jose Padilha directing.  Kinnaman is best known for his role on ‘The Killing’ on AMC.  Padilha has directed a few documentaries along with ‘Elite Squad’.  Needless to say, I have no hope for this film.

Bryan Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was very apprehensive about seeing the third installment of ‘Men In Black’.  I really loved the first film back in 1997.  I was sixteen at the time and remembered how much fun the original film was and what magical characters and comedy it brought audiences worldwide.  Then came the second installment of Men In Black in 2002 which was dull, boring, dialed in, and lacked any real good memories or fun.  I thought that the franchise was done.  That is until I saw ‘Men In Black 3’.   ‘Men In Black 3’ easily makes us remember what we loved about the original film and brings back those elements and even improves on them.  I can see future  ‘Men In Black’ films in the future if they keep this good work up.

Bryan Reviews ‘Moonrise Kingdom’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Wes Anderson is back to the live action format with his new quirky coming of age film, Moonrise Kingdom.  I can always tell a Wes Anderson film from any other films.  The camera angles, the oddball characters, the musical cues with the slow-motion action, and how every character puts their emotions on the frontline makes up the guts and glory of a Wes Anderson film.  Some people might find all this obnoxious, but Moonrise Kingdom, with its two tween stars, everything seems to work flawlessly.

Bryan Reviews ‘Battleship’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 18th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I remember playing ‘Battleship’ as a kid. I remember it being a little like chess, requiring determination, logic, strategy, and a bit of fun.  Unfortunately, the film ‘Battleship’ has none of that.  It’s a complete calamity on all levels, with the exception of some incredible special effects.  FACT: ‘Battleship’ has a run time of 131 minutes.  That’s over two hours, folks.  In that span of over two hours (which I’ll never get back), the film failed in storytelling, action sequences, logic, and character development.  The whole film was laughable and made no sense at all.  It’s as if a third grader made the film.  And that’s sad, because I like director Peter Berg.  He’s done some really good stuff like, ‘The Rundown’ and ‘Very Bad Things’.  But with ‘Battleship’, he missed the mark by a good 100 feet.

Bryan Reviews ‘Crooked Arrows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 18th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Crooked Arrows’ might be the first feature length narrative film on the fastest-growing sport, Lacrosse.  ‘Crooked Arrows’ was inspirational and an underdog story at heart.  Now I know we have seen our fair share of underdog films, such as; ‘Rocky’, ‘Underdogs’, and ‘Remember the Titans’, but  where ‘Crooked Arrows’ differs is that it shows a sport not only from its physical aspect, but also its spiritual, artistic, and historic background.  While there is an overabundance of cheesy heart-felt moments in this film, ‘Crooked Arrows’ has enough character and inspiration to rise above recent sports films.

Firstly, I just want to point out that I enjoy British comedy.  It just has such a different feel than most of what we get on this side of the pond.  So, when I got my hands on this, I was understandably pretty excited despite not knowing anything about the film.  After reading the back of the case and watching the trailer (included on the title screen of the DVD) I was even more excited, it just sounded so absurd!  And… it was.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Ole Bornedal is bringing the world a new possession film, and the movie poster and trailer definitely have merit.  At least it’s not one of those found footage films either.  The synopsis says: “A young girl buys an antique box at a yard sale, unaware that inside the collectible lives a malicious ancient spirit. The girl’s father teams with his ex-wife to find a way to end the curse upon their child.”  So, I guess I’m not buying anything creepy at a yard sale from now on.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Dictator’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sacha Baron Cohen returns to the big screen with another instant iconic character — Aladeen, ‘The Dictator’, and every religion, culture, and nationality is fair game for Cohen’s politically incorrect humor.  Cohen’s over-the-top offensive humor is not for everyone, but if you like tongue-in-cheek humor that plays off of every stereotypes and prejudice imaginable, you’ll be laughing hysterically as Cohen keeps crossing the line and reveling in his inappropriate jokes.  Cohen hit a home run with ‘The Dictator’, and I can easily say that this film is funnier than his Ali G, Borat, and Bruno characters combined.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Raven’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’ve been a fan of Edgar Allan Poe for as long as I can remember, and I have always loved watching films about his life, tales, and poems.  I was particularly excited when I heard that James McTeigue was going to direct ‘The Raven’, a murder-mystery that posits a fictional explanation for Poe’s mysterious death.   Unfortunately, while the main idea for the story is original and had the potential to be one of the better murder-mysteries made, ‘The Raven’ was just a series of unexciting plot twists that made me quote, ‘Nevermore’.

Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.  Enjoy.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Dark Shadows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 9th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

The Dukes of Hazzard, The Addams Family, and the A-Team are all television shows that have become feature films over the past several years. The latest television show to be remade on the big screen is the 60’s television series, Dark Shadows. With its dark humor, strange characters, and gothic set pieces, how could off-beat director Tim Burton resist?  Unfortunately, Dark Shadows proves yet again that even though you have an expansive budget, amazing set pieces, and good actors, you don’t necessarily get a quality film.  Dark Shadows fails to humanize any of the characters besides Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), and although it started off as a fun quirky film, it never improved or advanced after the first ten minutes.

Not surprised at all.  Disney CEO, Bob Iger has just announced that a sequel to the Avengers is currently in development.  Well, with the scene after the credits , and its record breaking $700 million dollar gross in under ten days worldwide, we all knew a sequel or three was in the cards.  It was just a matter of time.  Nothing yet is known at this time on what the film will be about or who will direct or star, but I’d imagine every cast member will be back.

James Cameron Wants to Make 4 ‘Avatar’ Films!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I guess we won’t be getting that sequel to ‘True Lies’ anytime soon, because James Cameron will only be making ‘Avatar’ films.  He doesn’t even want to produce any other films.  He just wants to make and possibly live in the world of ‘Avatar’.  The New York Times did an interview with Cameron over the weekend, and  he had confirmed that he was going to make at least three more ‘Avatar’ films.

by Gumbercules9000 on May 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers is breaking records all over the place.  It is the fasted film ever to reach $200 million.  And has the biggest one day record and biggest weekend record to date.  Take that James Cameron, George Lucas, Twilight twats, and Potter fans.  And the numbers keep on coming in.  I’m willing to bet that it will break records for biggest week, and possible biggest grossing movie ever.  You listening DC Comics.  Get your act together and get the JLA movie made.

Hi, Bryan Here…

I guess Microsoft is taking their cue from cable tv companies and have just released a coupon that would allow you to purchase an XBOX 360+Kinect for less than $100.  The small print is that you have to sign a two year contract with X-Box Live Gold for $14.99 a month.  Which is about three times more than what you would normally pay for it.

Hi, Bryan Here….

By the end of Alejandro Brugués’ foreign film Juan of the Dead, you’ll be chanting the film’s title over and over.  For the past ten years or so, the zombie genre has become a household brand and form of entertainment.  Each director of a new zombie film tries to find novel ways to portray the flesh-eating undead.  There are the comedic horror zombies of Shaun of the Dead and the scary-as-hell, running zombies in the recent Dawn of the Dead.  I’ve even seen African zombies,  stripper zombies, and nazi zombies.  With Juan of the Dead, we get a black- humor zombie film with a caricatured backdrop of modern-day political Cuba.

Bryan Reviews ‘Tchoupitoulas’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 6th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Tchoupitoulas (pronounced CHOP-it-TOO-luhs) is simply brilliant storytelling.  It’s something I have not seen done before, and it came across vibrantly original and engaging.  Brothers Bill and Turner Ross directed the documentary Tchoupitoulas, which is the name of a street in New Orleans, Louisiana.  This documentary has no real narrative or message, but rather an observance of the eccentricities and wildness of life in New Orleans. The film also won the Grand Jury Prize for Documentary Feature at the Dallas International Film Festival this year.

Hi, Bryan Here…

We’ve written about the upcoming DiCaprio/Scorsese project before on the site, and it seems people are getting amped up about it.  The project is called ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’ which is based on the Jordan Belfort memoir.  With the success of Jonah Hill’s career and his Oscar nomination last year, he has been cast to star alongside DiCaprio for ‘The Wolf Of Wall Street’.

Bryan’s Review of Linklater’s ‘Bernie’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Richard Linklater’s film, Bernie, was inspired by an article in Texas Monthly Magazine by Skip Hollandsworth titled ‘Midnight in the Garden of East Texas’.  The article was an editorial about a murder committed in the small East Texas town of Carthage, Texas.  Hollandsworth’s editorial argued that the entire town supported the killer, rather than the victim.  Regardless of the fact that the killer confessed, the evidence proved his guilt, and a court sentenced him to life in prison, the entire town still believes he is innocent.  This real-life story translated into a hilarious dark comedy.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joss Whedon’s Avengers is what every comic book geek and action film fanatic has dreamed of since they were a little kid.  Not only was it one of the most epic films ever shot on film, but Whedon used his wit and unique story telling to weave these iconic characters into a team that destroys evil.  You see, it’s not all about the people who form a team and save our planet.  It’s about a group of people from different times and different worlds, who necessarily don’t belong together, but realize that by teaming up, they form something bigger than themselves.  And notice that I don’t use the term superhero.  None of the Avengers refer to themselves or think of themselves as heroes, with the exception of Captain America, who really is the only hero in the story.

Hi, Bryan Here…

The third trailer for the Amazing Spider-Man is live, and I think it’s the best one yet.  It shows a bunch of action sequences and bit of the Lizard in action.  I like the story line they’re sticking with in this reboot, which is Peter Parker’s parents.  The cast is outstanding, and it looks like Andrew Garfield will be the better Spider-Man.  Enjoy and look for this on the Avengers prints this weekend.  Enjoy.

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’ looks really interesting.  The story follows Hushpuppy, an intrepid six-year-old girl, lives with her father, Wink, in “the Bathtub,” a southern Delta community at the edge of the world. Wink’s tough love prepares her for the unraveling of the universe; for a time when he’s no longer there to protect her. When Wink contracts a mysterious illness, nature flies out of whack-temperatures rise, and the ice caps melt, unleashing an army of prehistoric creatures called aurochs. With the waters rising, the aurochs coming, and Wink’s health fading, Hushpuppy goes in search of her lost mother.  Check out the trailer below.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Compliance’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

There were rumors surrounding Craig Zobel’s film Compliance–unsettling rumors that piqued my interest. The word on the street was that people were walking out of the film in protest and disgust.  After a long day of watching relatively banal films, I wanted to feel something–even if it was outrage.  After seeing the film, the most disturbing part was that this film is based on a true story. It is truly frightening.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Elijah Wood will star in the indie thriller, ‘Grand Piano’.  Eugenio Mira will direct with Damien Chazelle penning the script.  Rodrigo Cortes and Adrian Guerra will be producing the film.  Cortes and Guerra were involved with making the Ryan Reynolds film, ‘Buried’.  By the synopsis of this film and with the talent involved, ‘Grand Piano’ is shaping up to be very tense.

Hi, Bryan Here….

As we have previously reported, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making their directorial debut with ‘End of the World’.  This is based on a short film that starred Rogen and Jay Baruchel called ‘Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse’.  It had both  Rogen and Baruchel who took shelter in their apartment as they dealt with the end of the world.  Of course this is going to be on a much bigger scale and since it’s Rogen and Goldberg’s first job at directing; they want to litter the film with tons of big cameos.

BRIDGE Under Construction

by Justin Cline on May 1st, 2012

My apologies for the delay, but the publication date for the season two finale of BRIDGE will have to wait a week.  If push came to shove, I could probably finish it by the due date, but I’d prefer to take the extra time and get it right.  I still have a lot of loose ends to wrap up before the project goes on hiatus again.  The upside is that chapter twenty should be a substantial one.

See you for the big finish on Wednesday, May 9th.  Promise.
