the_hangover_part_3_movie-wide

I, like many others, was super excited when word broke that they were coming out with ‘The Hangover Part II‘ and I was also very anxious to know if they were going to keep with the theme of the movie and do a wake-up and a blackout. That part didn’t bother me. Where I was a bit dumbfounded was the fact that Stu was marrying some Asian girl who had no relevance to the story line. After having seen the movie, I had hoped they would pick up where they left off to lead into Part II to have some sort of explanation as to who this girl is that Stu is marrying. Was he originally supposed to marry the Stripper (Heather Graham’s character)? And the Asian girl was her bridesmaide. Something along those lines.

Film Review: ‘Pain & Gain’ !!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

pain-and-gain-poster-final

Michael Bay made a film for $25 million over the past year. This is a budget that he hasn’t had since  his first film ‘Bad Boys‘ in 1995. Between then and now, he has epic $100 million dollar budgets and is known for his horrible filmmaking and amazing explosions and car chases. The $25 million movie in question is called ‘Pain & Gain‘ and is a true story as it tells us on screen, which is very difficult to believe while watching what happens during its two hour run time.

Film Review: ‘Mud’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Mud_poster

Jeff Nichols has done a great job with his third film, ‘Mud‘, bringing us a coming-of-age story of two best friends in the south who bond with a homeless fugitive on the run. With amazing performances, a great script, and solid story structure, this tiny tale of love, confidence, and second chances might just win at the box office in due time with positive word-of-mouth.

The-Wolverine-2013-movie

Here is a Japanese trailer for the upcoming ‘Wolverine‘ film titled ‘The Wolverine‘. It showcases a tiny bit of new footage that we haven’t seen from previous trailers. This looks loads better than the previous ‘Wolverine‘ effort already. James Mangold is directing this sequel, which is not as appetizing as Darren Aronofsky directing, but that is long in the past. Mangold did ‘3:10 to Yuma‘, which was great, so let’s hope for something that spectacular, but Wolvy Berserk style. Snikt!

Feast Your Eyes on the New ‘Thor 2’ Trailer!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the first trailer for the sequel to Marvel’sThor‘ titled ‘Thor: The Dark World‘. It seems like Marvel is going for an edgier and darker tone with this one. We’ve heard rumors this was the direction it was going, and after viewing the trailer, I can confirm that things get pretty gritty.  Alan Taylor is directing this 2nd installment and I have complete trust that he will do a fine job judging by his credits.

Patches O’Houlihan might just be back for a sequel (well in spirit anyway) of the Ben Stiller/Vince Vaughn film ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story‘.  Fox and Stiller’s company Red Hour have brought on Clay Tarver to write a script for the sequel. I’m not surprised by this at all and can’t believe this didn’t happen sooner.

Bad news, everyone.  Comedy Central has decided not to renew ‘Futurama‘ and will have its last episode on September 4th.  The final 13 episodes will start airing on June 19th and will be the 2nd half of the 7th season.  This is unfortunate, as this Emmy winning series was amazing.  Yes, it had seven seasons, but how many times has this been cancelled? I know there is a huge fanbase for the show and is smarter than 95% of what people watch currently. I just don’t get it.

Film Review: “Oblivion”

by Woozie on Apr 19th, 2013

Suzanne here,

Screen shot 2013-04-19 at 7.10.40 PM

Sci-Fi action movies always strive to be epic – to catch the same feeling that you had at the end of your first viewing of Star Wars or 2001 – and Oblivion is no exception to reaching for that feeling. Though it doesn’t reach the exact level of these movies, this new feature comes close by borrowing from many of the sci-fi movies we love but assembling them in a fresh way. Oblivion is a great film with wonderful effects, expansive scenery, a moving soundtrack, and a performance that reminded why we love Tom Cruise.

Film Review: ‘Oblivion’

Hi, Bryan Here….

oblivion-movie-poster-tom-cruise-joseph-kosinski-featured

It’s been a great couple of years for science fiction fans. The sci-fi genre has shown its big head again, and the masses have seem to be eating it all up.  No matter what your opinion on a particular sci-fi film of recent, you can’t deny that the genre is back with a vengeance. Films like ‘Looper’ brought the future and time travel aspects to a great level of entertainment, whereas ‘Cloud Atlas’ made us think and at times confused us as to what was going on. None the less, it was a giant spectacle on screen, much of like we have seen many times before.

John Hughes would not be happy about this. Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures are set to remake ‘Weird Science’, the 1985 iconic film that was the superlative tale of nerds who had their ultimate wish come true. Joel Silver will produce the film as he produced the original with Hughes back in the 80s. Michael Bacall will pen the screenplay for the remake. Bacall wrote the remake of ‘21 Jump Street’ (which was another 80s remake) and the party film ‘Project X’.

David Zucker, who is the man behind the first two “Naked Gun” movies and the most recent “Scary Movie 5” is now wanting to reboot “Naked Gun”. He believes that it is time that the younger audience gets a taste of the franchise. He is quoted in saying that he, ”knows actors who are not famous that could play it straight like Liam Neeson” With Paramount being an international brand, there is room for the”Naked Gun” style. Leslie Nielsen played a bumbling guy in a position where he’s respected and nobody had a clue that he was an idiot. Zucker wants to do the character, but not the specific job.

Scripting team Ken Marino and his wife Erica, are back to work for Fox 2000. They have been hired to adapt “Go The F To Sleep”,  with “Twilight” Saga Producer Karen Rosenfelt and “All You Need Is Kill” producer Erwin Stoff as the producers. The book, written by Adam Mansbach, is classified as a childrens book for adults. The book is based off of Masbachs frustration of trying to get his daughter to go to sleep. As a parent, I can relate to this. Samuel L. Jackson (Django Unchained) did a reading of it that made it the worldwide sensation. If you haven’t seen it yet, it’s hilarious.

Film Review ’42’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

42-movie-poster

42‘, which is the answer to the ultimate question in the universe, is also that historic and legendary uniform number held by Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play major league baseball.  Brian Helgeland’s biopic film on Robinson tells a polished and engaging version of the baseball hero that changed the nation. With phenomenal performances from Chadwick Boseman as Robinson himself, both fans of baseball and Robinson, along with a younger crowd who has never heard of the baseball player will eat this film up. The box office will draw some decent money, even if the director tries to head us over the head with what we are supposed to be feeling.

 Hannah Fidell’s directorial feature debut, ‘A Teacher‘, is a disturbing film that has a brilliant performance from Lindsay Burdge. From the sulking score, to the long camera shots, this forbidden and illegal sexual tale spins out of control fast, but has a heavy psychological tone as we watch our main character descend into a steep downward spiral of madness and obsession.

Hailing from Ireland, Kieron J. Walsh’sJump‘ is a dark and twisted tale with elements of comedy that will attract the indie-film crowd at first glance, but loses its appeal very fast. You can tell that Walsh has a passion for the movie business and a true love of cinema, as he pays homage to several styles of filmmaking throughout the picture, however the several different story lines that intersect in a ‘Pulp Fiction‘ like way do not have enough time on screen for anyone to develop a relationship with the characters.

Midnight-Children01

If you set out to climb Mount Everest and only get half way before turning back, you won’t get many accolades. In fact, you are more likely to have critics obnoxiously telling you what they think you did wrong. Deepa Mehta’sMidnight’s Children’ did just that. They set out to create a story on an epic level, interweaving political motivations, interpersonal strife, national history, questions of personal identity, and magical realism.   Unfortunately, when “epic” is your standard of choice, movie-goers won’t remember the poetry of your dialogue or the visceral nature of your cinematography.  Because in the end, you set out to climb Mount Everest, and you only made it half way.

Australian director Wayne Blair makes his feature film debut with a little gem of a film in “The Sapphires.”  (see what I did there?)  The themes of the film are not really new to American audiences.  This is a musical-ish film about a traveling group of female aborigines Australians who realize their dream of performing in front of huge crowds, except that these huge crowds are American soldiers in Vietnam in 1968.  With this backdrop of a war torn country, we are exposed to the ideas of following your dreams, finding love, and living through the racial turmoil that was so prevalent during this time.

Ben Chimes In With His ‘Evil Dead’ Review!!!

Ben K., Here….

Evil-Dead-2013-1

As Fede Alvarez’s remake of the Sam Raimi horror classic came to a close, I heard a guy behind me mutter, “It was just a gorefest.” I resisted the urge to ask, “What exactly were you expecting?” When The Evil Dead came out back in 1981, was it not a gorefest? Was Evil Dead 2 not a gorefest? If by “just a gorefest” he meant that it lacked the humor of the original films, then perhaps he has a point. Gone were the many hat tips to The Three Stooges seen in Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness (aside from the “Fake Shemps” listed in the credits). The “Ashisms” were nowhere to be found until after the credits rolled. Still, for the fans who have been there from the beginning, this was more than a gorefest, indeed.

Hi, Bryan Here….

evil-dead-remake

My name is Bryan Kluger and I’m an ‘Evil Dead-aholic’.  One of my life defining moments in film was the very first time I saw ‘Army of Darkness‘. It was on VHS right when it was released on home video in the early 90s. It blew my fragile mind. I never knew a film could exist that had everything I ever wanted in a movie in the span of 90 minutes. It had thrills, monsters, demons, romance, comedy, action, a boomstick and a chainsaw. What else could someone want? I had to find out everything I could about this movie and soon figured out there were two film that proceeded it. Those films were ‘The Evil Dead‘ and ‘The Evil Dead II‘.

Danny Boyle is one of my favorite and one of the great modern filmmakers of the last twenty years.  His unique style and ability to make a film in a different genre each time he gets in the director’s seat has not only proved successful and earned him critical praise and awards, but it shows that he has limitless talent to entertain a wide variety of audiences across the globe. With his latest film, ‘Trance‘, Boyle shows he still has what it takes to make a modern noir movie with so many twists and turns, that eventually you  will give up trying to figure what’s going on in the story, and fall into Boyle’s “trance” of betrayal, thievery, and sex in this art heist thriller.

Sure, Season 6 of “Mad Men” premieres, but that’s not the right call. The correct choice is to pony up and order Wrestlemania 29 on pay-per-view. Unfortunately, I’ve hit a lot of dead ends trying to spark Wrestlemania conversations.

He is talking to the person about all the risks he took with killing the biters. A man replies that he was going to use them on whoever showed up. The Governor replied that he was and that eight of his men died. The Governor then takes another swing and the camera points to Milton taking the blow. The Governor states about how he kept him safe and feed. Milton replies with at as long as he turns the other way. Milton asks him what would his daughter think of the man he has become.
