Bryan’s Review of ‘Hotel Transylvania’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Hotel Transylvania’ is a huge spectacle on the eyes.  With giant colorful monsters, swooping camera pans at every scene, and a somewhat decent voice cast, you’d think ‘Hotel Transylvania’ would be the perfect movie for all ages this Halloween.  However, ‘Hotel Transylvania’  relies more on the visual aspect with keeping little kids entertained to the fullest every second, that the story and characters get left buried underground.  With the other animated monster and zombie films that are out right now, this one ranks low on the list.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Strike Back: Season 1’ Blu-Ray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…..

Even though this killer series airs on Cinemax, HBO is releasing the blu-rays.  And I love the fact that HBO is releasing the Digital Copies and DVD’s along with the Blu-rays in the same set.  I hope they continue this.  This is a great original series from Cinemax that looks great and sounds good too.  Not too many extras on this disc besides some commentaries, but I have a feeling that once you start watching ‘Strike Back’, you will want to watch more.

Suzanne’s Review of ‘Liberal Arts’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

As we age, we mature…and sometimes we mature in different ways at different times. This is not a new concept, but in Josh Radnor’s Liberal Arts, we see a group of characters facing different periods of growth and adversity. The film may not reach new depths of introspection and understanding of the human condition, but it is one that many can enjoy simply for the recognition of ourselves in the characters.

Suzanne Reviews ‘Won’t Back Down’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Educational reform is a difficult enough subject for policymakers to tackle. Nothing is black and white, no one is completely to blame or completely self-interested, and there are a tremendous number of problems and an infinite number of solutions. So in approaching a movie about the plight of public education today, it would be nice to see the subject treated with the nuance appropriate to actually reform the system. Unfortunately, Won’t Back Down misses this nuance and focuses on creating a good vs. evil environment with two sides that don’t work together to find a solution. Fine, it’s a movie – except this is a subject that requires some thought, and so should this movie.

The wait is ALMOST over, folks! We at Boomstick, and I’m sure the rest of the world, have been wondering if/when the 2009 Beatles’ Remastered catalog would see a proper vinyl release, aside from the Record Store Day singles release from last year. The good news is all those classic LPs, from ‘Please Please Me’ all the way down to ‘Let It Be’ will see an official release in North America on November 13th, just in time for the holidays. Available individually or bundled in a limited edition collector’s box set, this will be at the top of many a holiday wish list! Read the rest of this entry »

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan and Lisa S. Here…..

9d8c1968aa60cdb4dca86ed6790187e2

 

I had some help writing this article with writer, Lisa S.   Lisa hails from netherworld of the Northwest and is not above watching zombie movies for 24 hours straight.  She loves all kinds of scary movies and is an avid music fan.  You might even find her perusing the used DVD bin at your local movie store looking for old Ernest movies and Sifl and Olly discs.  Lisa helped quite a bit with this article and you can expect her read many more of her articles on this site from this point forward.  Give her a warm welcome and visit her online book and record store HERE.

Now let’s get to the list.  Here are Boomstick’s Top 20 Female Badasses in film and television.  I tried to keep it in the horror/sci-fi genre, but a couple of action star made it in there.  These females are the most hardcore we feel, by how much ass they kick, their courage, and their sex appeal.  We dare you to find better role models and badasses than this.  Enjoy the list.

Check Out the Trailer for ‘Paranormal Activity 4’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Another year, another ‘Paranormal Activity’.  This is the 4th installment of the horror franchise, and by the looks of the trailer, Katie and Hunter make appearances.  It looks like this time, the film centers on early teenage kids, and it still looks like the film pacs a bunch of scares.  I like this movies a lot.  I always have.  And diretors Jenry Joost and Ariel Schulman seem to have some fun new ideas to get our heart rate up.

Check Out The Trailer for the Remake of ‘Gambit’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Yet, another trailer for today.  This time it is the remake of the 1966 film ‘Gambit’.  Instead of Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine, we have Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz.  Don’t fret about Diaz being in the picture, because the Coen Bros. wrote this film.  There is no release date yet set for the US, however it will release in the UK on November 21.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Looper’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…..

Science Fiction is back in a big way.  With the recent ‘Prometheus’ film, ‘John Carter’, ‘MIB3’, and ‘The Hunger Games’, audiences are proving they are ready for a huge sci-fi kick in theaters.  Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is one of the better sci-fi films to come out this year, if not the best so far.  ‘Looper’ is a highly entertaining thrill ride that combines time travel, telekinesis, and realistic future world.  I was very happy to see that Johnson got the sci-fi genre right, and it left me wanting more.

Check Out The Trailer for ‘Stoker’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the trailer for Park Chan-wook’s ‘Stoker’, starring Nicole Kidman and Dermot Mulroney.  Yes Park Chan-wook sounds familiar to you, because he was the one who directed ‘Oldboy’.  “After India’s father dies in an auto accident, her Uncle Charlie, who she never knew existed, comes to live with her and her emotionally unstable mother. Soon after his arrival, she comes to suspect this mysterious, charming man has ulterior motives, but instead of feeling outrage or horror, this friendless girl becomes increasingly infatuated with him.”  Nicole Kidman looks awesome in this.  This is very different for her.  Enjoy the trailer.  ‘Stoker’ will be released March 1st, 2013.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Master’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Paul Thomas Anderson has knocked it out of the park yet again, with his masterfully crafted film, ‘The Master’.  I have no doubt people will be talking about this movie for weeks or even months to come.  ‘The Master’ is such a complex movie with tons of smart and clever parts to it, that I can’t wait to watch it several more times to catch everything.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Finally, after several years of going in and out of production, the new Wolverine film is finally taking shape.  James Mangold is directing the project.  Mangold directed ‘Cop Land’, ‘Girl Interrupted’, ‘3:10 To Yuma’, ‘Identity’, and ‘Walk the Line’ to name a few.  Not sure how to take this film yet.  At one point, Darren Aronofsky was attached to direct, but that fell through.  I was not a fan of ‘Wolverine Origins’, but hopefully this film will be much better.

Hi, Bryan Here….

So I guess because ‘The Expendables’ has done so well, it was only a matter of time before someone thought to make the same film, but with an all female cast.  This leads to the question, who will be in the film?  Who will lead a cast of female badasses?  Well, it looks like we have our first cast member.  Gina Carano, star of ‘Haywire’ will star in this action film according to Variety.
