Film Review: ‘Smurfs 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 31st, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

 smurfs-2

How can you not like Smurfs, whose sole existence is to live a peaceful life full of fun, dancing, singing, and love. Not too mention that they live in cool mushroom houses in the forest and all wear the same outfit. If you were thinking about what those little blue creatures were doing since the first film, you can rest easy, as life in the Smurf village has been Smurf-tastic. I’m sure the only reason we have a sequel is because the first film made over $560 million, and with this outing, you can expect the same visual pleasantries, but beyond a couple of lines of dialogue that garner a chuckle, I don’t see poorly titled ‘The Smurfs 2‘ playing to anyone over the age of five. That being said, I’m sure this blue sequel will smash the box office.

Diamond In The Rough: ‘Leonard Part 6’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 29th, 2013

Wade D., Here….

Leonard Part 6‘ is one of those movies that I remember watching as a kid, and even then I was wondering what the hell was going on.  I remember wandering through the video store and seeing this movie with Bill Cosby on the cover.  A spy movie with one of my favorite TV funny men, and I thought to myself “This is a definite rental!”  For those that are unfamiliar with this movie, let’s catch you up.  On paper, this movie sounds like it has success written all over it.  This movie was released in 1987, starring Cosby as the best CIA agent in the world that is pulled out of retirement to fight a unyielding crime syndicate in this spy spoof movie.  Sounds like a can’t miss, right?  It missed….bad.

New Column: Diamond in The Rough!!!

Wade D., Here…

 robot_monster

I love bad movies.  That is an extremely oversimplified, yet usual response I give to people when discussing film and cinema in conversation.  It is true though, but if you want to have a conversation about what I love we are really going to need to discuss it much further.  I think the best place to start is really defining what a “bad” movie is.  When I am referring to a bad movie, I am talking about those movies that are usually made with the best of intentions, but due to a lack of knowledge, talent, abilities, etc. they usually fall short of their intentions.  Sometimes these movies are mishandled from the very beginning; sometimes they are well done but just too bizarre to hit the mark.

Find Out What Kim L. Thought About ‘The To Do List’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 26th, 2013

Kim L., Here….

to-do-list-aubrey-plaza

The To Do List‘ is very funny and the trailers do not do it justice.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much I laughed out loud. The film is set in 1993 and follows a recent high school graduate, Brandy Klark played by Aubrey Plaza, who wants to be more experienced sexually before going off to college.  She makes a “To Do List” or as I like to call it a “Sexual Bucket List”.

Film Review: ‘The Wolverine’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-wolverine06

This second installment in a supposed trilogy on Wolverine is certainly a step in the right direction. Despite ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ being a terrible mess of a film on all levels, it managed to muster almost $400 million worldwide. With James Mangold at the helm this time and leaving off the ‘X-Men‘ title, we have a decent attempt of furthering one of the most beloved heroes in comic book history. Leaving the CG effects on the back-burner this time around, and going with a hand-to-hand combat method with elements of noir and Kurosawa in mind, this ninja-heavy action blockbuster for Fox should garner appropriate returns.

Finally, we have a trailer for ‘47 Ronin‘, a mega-budget action sci-fi adventure film, starring Keanu Reeves. We have been pining for this film and trailer for quite some time now.

Hi, Bryan Here….

In what might be the best news of the day, MGM has set director Ryan Coogler along with actor Michael B. Jordan in developing a spinoff ‘Rocky‘ film called ‘Creed‘. Don’t worry, Sly Stallone will reprise Rocky again as a retired boxer, now trainer for Apollo Creed’s grandson, which will be played by Jordan. Coogler and Jordan most recently collaborated on the amazing film ‘Fruitvale Station‘, which you can read that review HERE.

There’s Gonna Be A ‘Fight Club’ Sequel!!!

The first rule about ‘Fight Club‘ sequels is you don’t talk about ‘Fight Club‘ sequels. This past weekend at San Diego Comic Con, author Chuck Palahniuk signed copies of his upcoming novel titled ‘Doomed‘ as well as head a panel up where he answered many questions for his adoring fans. Well, one of those questions was geared toward what he is working on next.

Hi, Bryan Here….

wizard-of-oz-cast

I don’t understand all the hype around making new reboots or re-imaginings of the world of ‘Wizard of Oz‘. The last attempt with ‘Oz the Great and Powerful‘ was awful, as you can read HERE. ‘The Wiz‘ wasn’t so great, neither have the countless other versions been up to par with the exception of the dark and twisted version ‘Return to Oz‘. But out of all networks and movie studios, the SyFy network seems to be getting into the Oz business.

‘The Conjuring’ is Breaking Records!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

conjuring-tix

The horror genre is ruling the box office this summer, which is so cool. I’m a sick and twisted fan when it comes to horror, as I enjoy seeing every horror film, no matter how gory, terrible, or depraved it is. I live for that stuff. So, when I got the news that ‘The Conjuring‘, the new horror film by director James Wan has broken three records at the box office, I was giddy with joy. Why, you ask? Well because, this might pave the way for new and original horror films in our near future.

Hi, Bryan Here…

This sucks.  Actor, Dennis Farina has died, according to his publicist. He was 69. He had roles in ‘Get Shorty‘, ‘Snatch‘, and ‘Law and Order‘. He was a great man and one hell of an actor. We are hearing that Farina died from a blood clot in his lung. He has several kids and was huge Cubs fan. He will be missed.

Hi, Bryan Here….

breaking-bad

AMC’s ‘Breaking Bad’ had an epic panel at San Diego Comic Con this past weekend with cast and crew in attendance. Bryan Cranston even walked around the Comic Con floor in a highly detailed ‘Walter White’ mask, to unsuspecting attendees. You can see proof of that HERE and HERE. But after all of the Q & A’s and stories, we got the first scene of the final 8 episodes of ‘Breaking Bad’.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Legendary Pictures announced today and the San Diego Comic Con their director for the long awaited live-action version of ‘World of Warcraft’, based on the expansive online game. At one point within the past few years, Sam Raimi was in talks to direct this project, but all of that fell through so he could direct ‘Oz The Great and Powerful‘ and reboot his ‘Evil Dead‘ series. Needless to say, Raimi is no longer involved in the production.

The ‘Veronica Mars‘ panel at San Diego Comic Con unveiled a cool trailer and featurette for a large group of fans. If you remember, a few months ago, a few people from the ‘Veronica Mars‘ cast and crew got together on the fund raising site, Kickstarter and raised over $5 million dollars from us fans to make a movie version of the show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

kick-ass-2-posters

At San Diego Comic Con, a new ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ trailer was unveiled which runs just under five minutes in length. And if you were worried about it being less violent and bloody than the first film, than think again. This might be the most hardcore movie all year, judging by this trailer. Director Jeff Wadlow said, “We put these characters through a meat grinder in this one.”

Family-Guy-Simpsons-630x336

Maybe a trick to draw huge ratings, the executives at Fox have announced that in the Fall season of 2014 of the Animation Domination Sunday lineup, ‘Family Guy‘ will feature an episode that will have the Simpsons cast. We are told that the Griffin family will leave their town of Quahog and venture to Springfield, where they will meet Homer Simpson and the rest of the Springfield civilians.
