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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘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.
