Dec/2017

Hi, Bryan Here…

“As you wish.”  Looks like we will all have to be shelling out money again for the 25th anniversary edition of ‘The Princess Bride’.  From celebrated director Rob Reiner (‘The Bucket List’) and Oscar®-winning screenwriter William Goldman (‘Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid’) comes “an enchanting fantasy” (Time) filled with adventure, romance and plenty of “good-hearted fun” (Roger Ebert). Featuring a spectacular cast that includes Robin Wright (‘Forrest Gump’), Cary Elwes (‘No Strings Attached’), Mandy Patinkin (‘Homeland’) and Billy Crystal (‘Tooth Fairy’), this wonderful fairy tale about a Princess named Buttercup and her beloved is “a real dream of a movie” (People).

Hi, Bryan Here….

William Shatner just posted to his social media outlets, “Hoping to do a documentary on Star Trek:The Next Generation. I don’t know if you know but there’s a mysterious story that needs to be told and I’d like to tell it.”  This blew my mind.  I wonder what kind of mysterious events surround the epic series.  And what will Shatner bring to it.

‘Think Like A Man’ Sequel In The Works!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Sony Screen Gems officially announced a sequel to the hit film ‘Think Like A Man’.  The studio hired the same writers (Keith Merryman and David A. Newman) to pen the sequel according to the LA Times.  It makes sense to make the sequel after the first film grossed over $91 million which makes it one of the most successful comedies of the year so far.

Check Out The Trailer for ‘The Sessions’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Based on the poignantly optimistic autobiographical writings of California-based journalist and poet Mark O’Brien, The Sessions tells the story of a man confined to an iron lung who is determined–at age 38–to lose his virginity. With the help of his therapists and the guidance of his priest, he sets out to make his dream a reality.  This film screened at Sundance and was a big hit with the crowds.  It stars John Hawkes, Alan Arkin, William H. Macy, and Helen Hunt.  Ben Lewin served as director.

Bryan Reviews ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Beasts of the Southern Wild is no doubt in my top-10 list for best films of 2012.  I know most of you haven’t heard of this film, but rest assured, once you see this film – and I urge you to see this film as fast you can- you will not forget it.  Beasts of the Southern Wild is Benh Zeithlin’s feature-length directorial debut, and even though he is only 29 years old, he has a poetic vision that is on par with Stanley Kubrick and Terrence Malick.  Zeithlin’s attention to detail allows the movie to successfully portray backwater Louisiana, magical realism, and a culture’s determination and strength. It is unlike anything I have seen.  Not only is this film entertaining, smart, and creative, it is also important in that it shows a very realistic portrayal of some of the poorest people in present day America as they struggle to survive disasters both man-made and natural.  This is what every indie filmmaker should strive for.

Suzanne Reviews ‘Magic Mike’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2012

Woozie Here…

Are there naked slabs of man? Why yes, yes there are. But this is not all that Magic Mike has to offer. I have to admit, I dismissed this movie when I first saw the previews. I like looking at men – especially this cast of men – but filling two hours of film with this is likely to get old real fast. When I realized Steven Soderbergh was at the helm, I gave it a chance, and I’m glad I did. Magic Mike delivers on all the raunchiness hoped for out of a movie about male strippers, but there is more to it than Channing Tatum’s bare, rhythmic body.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

20th Century Fox and And Imagine TV are prepping an epic tv series called ‘The League of Pan’, a Peter Pan themed television series.  This project is the brain-child of writer Brian McCauley Johnson according to Deadline.  ‘The League of Pan’ will be a re-imagining of the Peter Pan universe and will take place in present day and will follow the Lost Boys (no, not Haim and Feldman), who left Neverland ten years ago.

Bryan’s Review of ”Amazing Spider-Man’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is the best Spider-Man film to date.  I can’t believe I’m actually saying that either.  It was just less than a decade or so, that the original Spider-Man film came out.  So how can they be rebooting this franchise and why would they?  I think there are several answers to that question. One might be as simple as making more money.  The last three Spidey films have made tons of money. The opportunity came to make another film, and of course Marvel said “Yes” to that, therefore more money in the pockets of Marvel.  Another reason might be, is that the third Spider-Man film was such a terrible milestone in filmmaking, and acted as a “what not to do” with a superhero franchise, that Marvel thought it would be a good idea to just reboot the series.  And yet, even another reason might be, is that Marvel wanted to go the route of DC Comics and make an edgier more realistic superhero film, similar to what DC Comics did with the Batman franchise.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The 6 Month Rule’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

When it comes to romantic comedies, I feel I see the same film over and over again, but with different actors.  The story usually ends up the same in every circumstance.  While, I know that’s the point for a romantic comedy, I always yearn for something different. Something that is not afraid to stray from the typical plot.  With Blayne Weaver’s ‘The 6 Month Rule’, it was a breath of fresh air to see the romantic comedy genre get turned on its ear and change the game.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Ted’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Ted’ is hilariously funny.  I didn’t expect it to be as humorous as it was, but I busted a gut from start to finish.  I’m not a huge ‘Family Guy’ fan. so I admit, I was a bit apprehensive to watch a feature film written and directed by Seth MacFarlane.  I was quite surprised as to how warm and witty it was.  After the first 15 minutes or so of seeing an animated teddy-bear come to life, I really didn’t see it as a teddy-bear, but rather an actual person.  MacFarlane captured a genuine and heartwarming film with an ultra raunchy and vulgar kick at every turn.

For so long now, we have been hearing about a new ‘Child’s Play’ film.  You know the films with the killer doll named Chucky?  Well, over the past couple of years, we have heard there will be a sequel as well as a reboot to the franchise.  We also heard that the reboot was going to return to the darker side of things rather than it be more of a slapstick type comedy as the previous two Chuky films have been.  Well, this Chuck film will be a sequel to the already five films of the franchise.

Bryan’s ‘Flareup’ DVD Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Racquel Welch is a goddess. In ‘Flareup’, you can see why Welch was a leading lady in so many films.  She was a sex symbol and a surprisingly very funny and gifted comedy actress.  It’s very easy to watch Welch on screen and become hypnotized by her beauty, that you completely forget the title of the film you are watching.  Then you snap out of it and think, “WOW, this movie and Welch were amazing.”  This film does exactly that.  Sadly, ‘Flareup’ was one of those long lost forgotten films, that most of you never heard of.  And thank the geniuses over at the Warner Archive collection for finally releasing this on DVD.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I recently sat down with the talented and charismatic actor/director/writer/producer, Blayne Weaver at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. (Sorry about the noisy background.)  We talked about his latest film, ‘The 6 Month Rule‘, Peter Pan (Weaver is the voice of Disney’s Peter Pan), Superman, and much more in this great 25 minute interview.  The ‘6 Month Rule’ is much like the film ‘Swingers’, but for a new generation.  Its romantic comedy plot line strayed from the rest and showed me something a little different than I’m used to.  It was a delight to watch.  Twice.  If ‘The 6 Month Rule is playing near you, go see it.  I think you’ll have fun with the film.  Find out more info by going to their website HERE.  Enjoy the interview.

‘Taken 2’ will find you. ‘Taken 2’ will kill you. Liam Neeson returns as the heroic dad/ex-government agent from 2008’s smash-hit success, ‘Taken’. This looks all sorts of ridiculous as the director is Olivier Megaton who directed ‘Transporter 3’.   Just reading that out loud makes me laugh.  Enjoy the trailer.

‘Seeking A Friend For The End of the World’ asks that age old question, “If you knew the world was going to end in a matter of a few days, what would you do?”. In this case, we instantly learn that a large asteroid will be hitting Earth and that the last ditch effort to save Earth has failed.  It’s game over, folks.  That’s how we meet Dodge (Steve Carrell), who hears the tragic news on his car radio.  This is an unique take on romantic comedies that is as sweet and fulfilling as chocolate cream pie.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here we are with HBO’s vampire series ‘True Blood’ season 4.  We can all sink our fangs into this one and come out blissful.  So let’s take a count, shall we?  Vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches, demons, ghosts, were-panthers, and shape shifters have all made an appearance in ‘True Blood’ so far.  That’s eight different creatures, some of who were introduced in season 4.  Can’t wait to see what new and insane creatures and monsters are in store for us in season 5.  This bluray release is stellar, much like its previous seasons with their top of the line audio and video presentations.  If you are a fangbanger or just love blood, then you know you’re going to pick this up.  ‘True Blood’ season 4 is an excellent edition to the collection.

HBO’s second season of ‘Treme’ is just as good as the first season.  It’s a story of character, tragedy, music, and the spirit of New Orleans post Katrina.  HBO really knocked this release out of the park with the excellent extras and superb video and audio transfers.   If you are a fan of the above, you definitely need to pick this up.  This receives my highest recommendation.

Criterion knocked this release out of the park.  I;m not surprised.  Criterion is the Neiman Marcus of home video releases.  And, with their Hollis Frampton Odyssey bluray, they don’t disappoint.  I would imagine, only film buffs and film majors know who Hollis Frampton is.  If you don’t know who he is, if you love cinema, experimentation, and art, then you will instantly fall in love with Frampton’s films.  Frampton is the godfather of digital art, and this bluray shows you why he got that name.  Simply phenomenal.  This disc gets my highest recommendation.

Bryan’s ‘John Carter’ 3D Bluray Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

In my opinion, ‘John Carter’ is one fun ride.  I really think the executives over at Disney had no idea how to market this movie.  Of course, it showed during its theatrical run, because it didn’t make near enough as everyone thought it would.  ‘John Carter’ cost around $200 million to make and is a story of epic proportions.  The ‘John Carter’ 3D Bluray is one to own if you love action adventure films.  Don’t let the critics persuade you not to like this film, because in fact, you will enjoy it.

Bryan Reviews ‘That’s My Boy’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all still love Adam Sandler.  He gave us great characters in Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and his many iconic roles on Saturday Night Live.  But at some point, Sandler started making lazy, unfunny, and obnoxious films and characters.  It made me not want to see any of his films.  There were a few brief moments of greatness from him over the past several years in his more dramatic roles, but when it came to his comedies, Sandler and his films have become a joke.  His last film, ‘Jack and Jill’ was one of the worst films to come out in the last twenty years, with his previous comedies not too far off from that.  That being said, Sandler’s ‘That’s My Boy’ is his welcome back party. A welcome back to the great comedic genius he was once known for.

Bryan Reviews ‘Rock Of Ages’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Rock Of Ages’ is an 80’s Rock n’ Roll orgy turned up to eleven.  I have no doubt that 80’s rock music fans will eat this up and rock themselves out in the theater.  This musical is based on Chris D’ Arienzo’s Broadway play and has been adapted to the big screen in a major and hilarious way with an allstar cast.  Plus they got Adam Shankman (they guy who directed the remake of ‘Hairspray’) to direct this 80’s rock opus.  ‘Rock Of Ages’ is over-the-top ridiculous, campy, silly, but one hell of a good time.  You’ll leave the theater singing your favorite Twisted Sister song and wanting to change your hair into a mullet.

Bryan Reviews ‘Prometheus’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

“In space no one can hear you scream.”

We have all been hearing about a movie called ‘Prometheus’ for sometime now, and all of us fans have been trying to piece the puzzle together on what it has to do with Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ film.  Since Scott directed ‘Prometheus’ and the original ‘Alien’ film, there has to be some sort of connection from what we have seen from the trailers, right?  The filmmakers told us that ‘Prometheus’ would be a prequel to the ‘Alien’ film.  After seeing ‘Prometheus’, I can say that it’s a very early prequel.  I’m  certainly happy Scott returned to this universe, because the ‘Alien’ franchise has been in a state of decay for a number of years starting with the 4th installment and then onto the ‘Alien vs. Predator’ series.  So, I was truly hoping to get an original film, but with strong ties to the ‘Alien’ franchise.  The question is, did it work?

Hi, Bryan Here…

Seductive, fearless and outrageous, Marina Abramović has been redefining the meaning of art for nearly 40 years. Using her own body as a vehicle, pushing herself beyond her limits, and at times risking her physical safety, she creates performances that challenge, shock and move. From first-time director Matthew Akers, MARINA ABRAMOVIĆ THE ARTIST IS PRESENT follows “the grandmother of performance art” as she prepares for a major retrospective of her work at Manhattan’s Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in 2010, highlighted by a new exhibit that is breathtaking in its simplicity: two chairs facing each other, with Abramović sitting in one and audience members taking turns sitting in the other, gazing into each other’s eyes in silence. In true Abramović style, she remains in the chair for seven and a half hours each day – every day the museum is open for three months – without eating, drinking or moving, a feat of mental and physical endurance that is challenging even for a veteran of such performances.

Hi, Bryan Here….

It’s been way too long since we have seen a new episode of FX’s ‘American Horror Story’.  I really enjoyed that show and I’m looking forward to a second season.  I love how they are doing it.  From what I’ve heard and reported, the 2nd season will be about a new family and new house.  I like that they are changing it up.  Well, we have some late casting news for the second season of thriller series.  Joseph Fiennes (‘Shakespeare in Love’, ‘Enemy at the Gates’, ‘Flash Foward’, and ‘Camelot’) is in final talks to join the series.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Apple had its keynote today and finally unveiled some much need hardware upgrades, or lack there of as what transpired earlier.  Apple revealed their new line of mac book pros, mac book airs, and their big tower macs.  We also got some new info on the upcoming Mountain Lion OSX.  Are there some cool things?  Yes there is.  Was there anything disappointing?  Very much so.  Some would say that I’m a mac enthusiast.  I might agree with that, however I’ve very critical of them.  Over the past couple of years, Apple, I feel has screwed me over and their customers time and time again.  I believe that trend of screwing customers out of their hard earned money is still ongoing.  Even more so with this new line of supposed upgrades for computers.

BRIDGE – Interlude One

by Justin Cline on Jun 11th, 2012

 

The burnt man came to with a start, air flooding his lungs as if he were emerging from under water.  The lag time between sleep and waking was nil, his mind engaged and ready to begin what had by now become a familiar process, for even with all his knowledge of what was coming—all of this has happened before, and it will all happen again—, he was incapable of avoiding even a single step, starting with the room.

Hi, Bryan Here…

As you have known for the past few years, there has been a Judge Dredd film in the works.  Only over the past several months have things really taken shape.  Karl Urban will play Dredd and supposedly is fully committed to the character and is loving every minute of it.  Let it also be known that this Judge Dredd film is going to be a hardcore ‘R’ film and is written by Alex Garland.  Garland wrote a little film you might like called ’28 Days Later’.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have previously reported that Stephen King’s ‘It’ is being remade into a theatrical film.  It will be a two part film series with Cary Fukunaga directing.  Fukunaga is most known for directing ‘Jane Eyre’.  Fukunaga will also co-write the script with Chase Palmer who adapted Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ recently.  Seth Grahame-Smith will be producing the picture according to THR.  I’m on the fence about this project.  I don’t have high hopes for this considering the crew.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I heard about ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’ a while ago and really wanted to see it in the theater.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get the chance to see it on the big screen, so I was super stoked to see it on bluray.  I prefer the undubbed version to the english dubbed film, but it didn’t detract away much, considering the very comedic actors who lend their voices to the english version.  ‘The Secret World of Arrietty’ is a very fun story that will appeal to both kids and adults alike.
