Bryan’s Top 20 Films of 2012!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I can’t believe that 2012 is at its end and we are about to welcome 2013.  This year has gone by so fast, and man, did I see tons of films.  When I started making this 2012 list, I came up with 87 films that I enjoyed.  Yes, you read that right, 87, meaning there were probably just as many films that I didn’t enjoy.  Now, below is my top 20 of the year. I just couldn’t do it with 10 this year.  And these are films that I watched in the theater or at home and that don’t necessarily come out this year, but I did see this year.  And I’m sure I’ll get a lot of criticism for my list, but hey this is my list, not yours.  You can have your own.  But my lists tend to be different than most people’s as you can tell from my previous lists HERE. So without any further delay, below is my TOP 20 films for 2012.

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m so excited about ‘Grand Theft Auto 5‘.  It looks amazing, and from the trailers and synopsis we have posted over the last few months, we can clearly see how much time, and talent has gone into this.  So, recently, we have only known that the new game from Rockstar would release sometime in Q1 or Q2 of 2013, but thanks to an Amazon update, we know that the game will release March 26th, 2013.  So get your pre-orders in for PS3 and XBOX 360.  We can’t wait.

Film Review: ‘Django Unchained’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m so glad I waited till I saw Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’ to make my top 20 list of films of the year, heck, my top 5 list, because it definitely deserved a spot near the top. Tarantino’s journey into the western genre is smart, funny, and tells a great story of love and revenge, one of Tarantino’s best plot points. I cannot wait to see this movie again.

Film Review: ‘Jack Reacher’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was pleasantly surprised with the film adaptation of Lee Child‘s novel series on the character ‘Jack Reacher‘.  I was sorely let down by the film adaptation of ‘Alex Cross‘, and did not want another stinker like that.  Well, when you have talent like Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise, expect a strong script, great character development, and one hell of a fun thrill ride.  ‘Jack Reacher‘ hits the mark in more ways than one.

Behold! Terrence Malick’s ‘To The Wonder’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Over the past several days, you might have noticed the site has not been updated.  No need to worry, everything is fine, and I appreciate all of the emails asking what’s been going on.  I’ve had a bad cold since last week, which has left my head feeling like it was submerged in black tar and repeatedly beating by mega ton hammers.  So today, is the first day I have felt well enough to even get out a sentence on the computer.  Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll be back to 100%.  – – On to the cool news.  Terrence Malick‘s new film ‘To The Wonder‘ has finally got a trailer and it looks very Malick-y.

Hi, Bryan Here….
 We don’t usually post stuff like this on here, but this was too good to not share with you folks.  Last night on the ‘Colbert Report‘, Stephen Colbert premiered brand new scenes from ‘Breaking Abbey‘.  Confused?  Well it was the cast of ‘Downton Abbey‘ spoofing ‘Breaking Bad‘ with stars Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter, and Rob James-Collier cooking meth and dealing with baddies.  It was amazing.  So don’t forget, the season 3 premiere of ‘Downton Abbey‘ premieres on January 6th, with the last season of ‘Breaking Bad‘ airing in the summer. Enjoy the video. Read the rest of this entry »

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Film Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Welcome back to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson‘s version of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, which covers the first six chapters of the 19 chapter book, is very faithful to the original material. Jackson has gone back to the world that made him a household name and literally translated verbatim from page to screen, which is sure to blow the minds of fans of the book. However, at its almost 3 hour run-time, ‘The Hobbit‘ feels sluggish and never seems to pick up any sort of pace.  That being said, i have no doubt this movie will make hundreds of millions of dollars before the year is over.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

‘Angry Birds’ Coming to Theaters in 2016!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I have never once played ‘Angry Birds‘.  So, I’m not up to speed on the whole storyline or even gameplay.  I do know that it is one of the most popular game apps though.  And it was only a matter of time before it was developed into a major motion picture.  The game has been available for three years now and John Cohen (‘Despicable Me‘) will produce a 3D CG animated feature film of ‘Angry Birds‘ for summer of 2016.  Rovio Entertainment announced that David Masiel (‘Iron Man‘) will executive produce.

Take a Look at Disney’s ‘The Lone Ranger’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the 2nd trailer for ‘The Lone Ranger‘ starring Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer.  The first trailer we watched came out a few months ago and was about a minute shorter than this one.  I hope this turns out good and not like the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ films.  Gore Verbinski has teamed up with Depp again to make this epic picture, and at one time was going to be one of the most expensive films ever made, and the studio axed the project all together.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I really don’t understand why, but hell, this would be one awesome stage production with all the costumes and sets.  Guillermo Del Toro‘s ‘Pan’s Labyrinth‘ is being developed into a stage musical.  Don’t fret though, del Toro and Jeremy Ungar have written the stage version already with Paul Williams writing the lyrics to the songs.  Gustave Santaolalla, an Oscar winner is composing the score.  How cool is this.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Unfortunately, the late great and wonderful actor Michael Clarke Duncan will not be able to reprise his role as Manute in Robert Rodriguez‘s sequel of ‘Sin City‘ due to his untimely death.  However, actor Dennis Haysbert (President Palmer on ‘24‘) will replace Duncan in that role for the ‘Sin CIty’ sequel.  And if you haven’t seen Haysbert as President Palmer, it might just be the greatest president of the USA ever portrayed on television.

Check Out the ‘Man of Steel’ Poster!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 This ‘Man of Steel’ poster certainly raises a ton of questions.  It definitely looks good, but is very strange.  Here we see Henry Cavill as Superman being escorted by military personell in handcuffs.  Is Supes a bad guy?  How is this possible?  Superman is invulnerable to pretty much anything and could fly away and break those handcuffs, and if the military guys try and shoot him, you know the bullets would just bounce right off.  But who knows?

Hi, Bryan Here…..

 

I really can’t wait to see this.  I’ve been a long time fan of ‘Star Trek’ and f friends asked my that age old question, “Star Wars or Star Trek?”, my answer was 10/10 ‘Star Trek’.  As we previously reported, the first several minutes of ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ will be shown in front of ‘The Hobbit’ film, which my review will be posted shortly.  Anyway, on to the poster.  I really do like this poster, and tons of people are saying it is eerily similar to ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ poster, which I can see, but I think this one is tons better.  I do hope at one point that we get the Enterprise on the poster, but this is a good one.
