 How-I-Met-Your-Mother-7

You can’t bottle lightning and you won’t likely see it strike the same place twice. Yet, television networks seem to be banking on just that improbability becoming the mainstay instead of the rare event it really is. Sadly, those of us that love truly original story lines are running out of things to watch. The silver screen has been a big culprit of this with the barrage of re-makes from successful movies barely 20 years old and mediocre tv shows that have earned the big screen treatment. I always hoped the small screen was safe since spin-offs never seem to do as well as the predecessor. Of course there are exceptions to this rule, but they are few and far between. I’m now taking bets on which of these proposed and shows in the works will make it through their first full season. I’m kidding, I’m not a bookie. Seriously, though…I’ll give you excellent odds.

Film Review: Blue Is the Warmest Color

by Woozie on Oct 31st, 2013

Suzanne L., Here….

Screen shot 2013-10-31 at 8.44.23 PM

There is a reason Blue Is the Warmest Color has already received so much attention. Much of this attention has been focused on the controversies surrounding the film – explicit sex scenes and the difficulty the actors had during the filming. In spite of these controversies, director Abdellatif Kechiche has created a gripping film that reminds us of how consuming, wonderful, and terrible love can be.

The upcoming ‘Lego Movie‘ looks Incredible and hilarious. I didn’t expect it to be this good, but man, after watching this trailer, I cannot wait to see this. Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Colbie Smolders, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson, and Charlie Day are just some of the few talented actors lending their voices to this movie. And man, it looks funny.

I just love the films Jason Reitman has directed. He did ‘Juno‘, ‘Up in the Air‘, ‘Thank You For Smoking‘, and ‘Young Adult‘. Needless to say, he knows what he’s doing, as his father Ivan Reitman has passed down a great gift to him. His next film ‘Labor Day‘ looks incredible. It stars Josh Brolin and Kate Winslet, and is an adaptation from the Joyce Maynard novel.

Paramount has pushed back Martin Scorsese’sWolf of Wall Street‘ back to Christmas day. Originally, it was going to open Thanksgiving. But just shortly after they made this announcement, we have a brand new trailer with all new footage. And like the first one, it looks incredible.

We can’t believe we did it either, but we did. We went and re-cast ‘The Exorcist‘, which is possibly one of the scariest, if not the scariest film ever made. It was very difficult, but we made it through, and I believe we have some amazing choices and suggestions, as if Hollywood chooses to ever remake it, this is a good starting point. So this being the Halloween special for our podcast, enjoy us recasting ‘The Exorcist‘. Enjoy the show…

Well of course ‘The Walking Dead‘ was renewed for a fifth season. The recent fourth season opener broke cable records with over 16 million people tuning in. Zombies are in this year. And it seems they are not going away anytime soon. AMC announced today that the fifth season has been ordered. AMC president Charlie Collier said, “We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever:  The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season.  This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more Dead.”

The ‘Entourage’ Film Is Finally Happening!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

From EPP

All it took was Mark Wahlberg calling out a few people on camera for being pricks, and a few days later, ‘Entourage‘ the film finally gets a greenlight from the studio. You see, for the past year or more, an ‘Entourage‘ big screen adaptation was in the works, but some of the stars of the show were holding out for a big pay day, thus delaying the movie. Well it seems that now, all things have been settled, and the film is moving on.

We’ve even talked about it on this site before. Well, we aren’t too far off from some big news regarding this project. Millennium Films chief Avi Lerner, who has released the past ‘Expendable‘ films, is making ‘The ExpendaBelles‘, which again is virtually the same film as Stallone’s, but with females.

I guess Emile is going to put on some weight, but I do think he is an amazing actor, and can pull this off. Conrad wrote the script as well.

 Horrible Bosses

I loved ‘Horrible Bosses‘. I’m a fan of just about anything funny and Bosses did not disappoint. So I’m kind of excited about the news that there is a ‘Horrible Bosses 2‘ set to begin production at the beginning of November. Although I have to wonder where the story line is going to go with Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey. Colin Farrell is not listed in the cast list for HB2 so we just have to assume that Bobby Pellett is still in prison.

Dealing with revenge is the Underwood’s (Kevin Spacey, Robin Wright) MO in ‘House of Cards‘, and I bet we’re going to expect more of the same if Netflix picks up the option for the show to continue after it’s second season. As the keynote speaker for Film Independent’s 9th annual confab, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos stated, “Our intent is that the show keep going for sure, It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons, talks are in progress right now, so stay tuned.”

Film Review: “The Counselor”

by Woozie on Oct 25th, 2013

Suzanne L., Here….

1382652816000-AP-FILM-REVIEW-THE-COUNSELOR-59336400

The novels written by Cormac McCarthy always have haunting aspects with exquisite words that explore human nature while streaming the stories through your imagination in beautiful visions that starkly contrast with the depictions of gruesome violence. Translating his vision to the big screen has not always been easy, but with his first original screenplay the writer has taken more control of his story in the film medium. In The Counselor, McCarthy, veteran director Ridley Scott, and a well-rounded cast present a powerful drama about moral dilemma and the inevitable path we create for ourselves when we make choices.

Film Review: ‘Bad Grandpa’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 bad-grandpa

Jackass‘ is back, well sort of. Johnny Knoxville has teamed with the filmmakers of all the ‘Jackass’ films including director Jeff Tremaine to make a film centered on Knoxville’s character, Irving Zisman, an elderly man who steals, curses, fools real people into thinking he has harmed himself by doing a variety of stunts and gags. Not to mention showing off his 12 inch sagging scrotum to anyone who walks by. Mixing in a narrative story with real stunts with real people and their real reactions, ‘Bad Grandpa‘ is a ‘Borat‘ film with the ‘Jackass‘ brand. And man, does it work. I haven’t laughed so hard since the beginning of summer in a movie theater.

Film Review: ’12 Years A Slave’

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

john-legend-12-years-soundtrack-lead

There have been many films about slavery and the Civil War over the years. Only a couple have been good, and those have featured a big war in the storyline. But as far as a story strictly on slavery goes, the film count doesn’t have a lot of marks for great movies. With the exception of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’, which was more a fantasy and revenge flick on slavery, british director Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years A Slave’ is a phenomenal film from top to bottom, yet it’s extremely rough to watch in certain parts due to the emotional content of the story. Chiwetel Ejiofor leads an all-star cast in one of the finest films in recent memory. One we won’t soon forget and will discuss with friends, families, strangers, and others for months to come.

Last year, we saw two films tackle the darkest of moments in American History.  Quentin Tarantino’sDjango Unchained” gave us a “what if?” historical satire that was a hit with critics and audiences alike.  Steven Spielberg chimed in too with the also acclaimed, though incredibly white washed, “Lincoln,” which depicted the legislative maneuvering that underwent to abolish slavery.

I am a huge fan of his, anyway, and this one does not seem like it will disappoint. After reading some of the comments from the slack-jawed, fly-catching public and I don’t see how people are complaining that it doesn’t look funny or that they ALREADY hate it? Puh-lease. Either you’re a Will Ferrell fan or you’re not. If you’re not, chances are good you’re not going to like anything he’s in.

The heart-breakingly gorgeous Michael Fassbender, younger Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto from X-Men: First Class and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is cast as the titular Macbeth. Marion Cotillard has signed on to play Lady Macbeth. Cotillard is fairly well known for playing Billie Frechette opposite Johnny Depp’s Dillinger in Public Enemies. She also recently, and most notably, played Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. I first realized her star power when I saw her Ridley Scott’s A Good Year playing opposite Russell Crowe.

When you think of the collected works of Tim Burton, certain projects stand out. If you ask my daughter, she’ll point out Alice in Wonderland, my son will give props to, his favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you ask me, I’ll mention the Batman movies, Edward Scissorhands or Beetlejuice. There has been a lot of talk about Burton, Michael Keaton and Beetlejuice lately. In particular, whether or not Burton would like to film a sequel. He is already a producer of the proposed movie with David Geffen. I don’t blame Warner Brothers for giving this one to Burton to consider. How could you make a trip back to the universe of Beetlejuice without his directing? It would be like eating steak with plastic wrapped around your tongue…all of the fill of food, but none of the flavor. Come to think about it, that’s kind of like sex with a condom, too!

Film Review: ‘Carrie’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

Carrie‘ was Stephen King’s first novel that was published to the masses, and it made him a writing sensation. Little did we knew back in the 70s that this mastermind would create some of the most horrific settings and characters known to man. Not to mention some of the best non-horror books around. In dealing with remakes, it’s difficult not to compare to the original, as we have the same story arc and characters. In this case with Kimberly Peirce’s take on King’s novel, nothing seems to be too different than the original other than that we are in present day with mobile phones and computers and a few very minor details. Julianne Moore and Chloe Grace Moretz turn in great performances and give this reboot a bit of flair, but the overall pace and execution of some of the key scenes felt vague and lazy. Being the Halloween season and this being a horror film, I expect decent returns for this weekend only.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Iron Man 3’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

iron-man3

With ‘Iron Man 2‘ proving to be less than stellar back in 2010, this third sequel of the Marvelhero returns with a much needed boost of attitude and character that takes us through many twists and turns and tons of new Iron Man suits. This can be considered a sequel to both 2010′s ‘Iron Man‘ and Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘. Director Shane Black tosses away much of the wham-bam action scenes and focuses on the quick witted humor and our hero’s internal struggle with crippling panic attacks. I have no doubt this will be a fan favorite of the franchise.

I counted six one liners in the Schwarzenegger/Stallone film ‘Escape Plan‘. I was hoping for more, and when it came to Schwarzenegger’s big moment to deliver the goods, they must’ve hired a three year old, because his one-liner was pretty lame, as is much of this action thriller that finally has the two biggest action stars of the 80s together at last for an entire movie. Now before we get into the good and bad of this film, let us first discuss the director, whose name is Mikael Hafstrom, who directed the John Cusack vehicle ‘1408‘. But more interestingly, Hafstrom wrote a movie called ‘Kopps‘, which you can see a brief snippet below (it’s required viewing to proceed with the review)….

It’s been a long and difficult road and we’ve had some great discussions and heated arguments on which filmmakers should advance on to the next round. With match ups like Spielberg/Scorsese and Carpenter/Romero, this is a must listen. Be sure to print out our bracket online and play along with us. Enjoy the show….

 Paranormal-Activity-3-610x225

Well, we’re not getting a ‘Paranormal Activity‘ movie this Halloween, but this coming up January, we are. We’ve reported before that Paramount is making more ‘Paranormal Activity‘ films plus some spinoff movies. If you saw the last one and stayed through the end credits, you saw a strange and haunting scene that seemed to take place in a Spanish market.

Stan Lee is a legend when it comes to creating superheroes. X-men, Spiderman, Iron Man, Avengers and Thor are just a few of the characters he has co-created, or created outright. He revitalized the Marvel brand to the encompassing mega brand it is now. It stands to reason that if he touches it, success will inevitably follow. The man with the Midas touch. So it stands to reason that Cartoon Network, Liquid Comics, POW! Entertainment and CA Media’s Graphic India are collaborating to bring Chakra: The Invincible, Lee’s first ever Indian superhero, to television. The story of Raju Rai, a young Indian boy in Mumbai, that works with a mentor to create a suit that activates and harnesses the mystical chakras of the body so he can save the world from super villains is described by Lee as a “thrill-a-minute superhero saga”.

Nothing compares to a truly great mafia novel. Unless it’s watching a great mafia movie written by an excellent novelist. That’s just what Discovery is banking on with the announcement of it’s first scripted drama series. The Five Families will be written by scribe Nicholas Pileggi, the author of both Wise Guys and Casino and the screenplays for Goodfellas. Pileggi is also developing a possible series based on Goodfellas for AMC. Coming on board to produce is a familiar name from Goodfellas, Irwin Winkler. Winkler is coming off an executive producing stint with The Wolf of Wall Street featuring Leonardo  DiCaprio.

 70th Annual Golden Globe Awards - Show

The speculation that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler have signed to host the Golden Globes for the next two years is true. “Tina and Amy are two of the most talented comedic writer/performers in our business, and they were a major reason the Golden Globes was the most entertaining awards show of last season,” said NBC president of alternative and late night programming Paul Telegdy. “We’re elated they wanted to host together again and that they committed for the next two years.” After Poehler and Fey’s last run as hosts had positive reviews and 19.7 million total viewers and a six-year high for the show, the comedy duo is sure to give them another 2 years of greatness.

Director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire), is not in danger of being out of work any time soon. After releasing Trance in March of this year, the versatile director is turning his attention to the small screen. In the US, he’s partnering with his Slumdog Millionaire writer and producer Simon Beaufoy (127 Hours and the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Christian Colson (127 Hours and Trance) for a 10 part WWII miniseries.

Film Review: ‘Machete Kills’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

www.indiewire

‘Machete don’t tweet’ is one of the lines that is uttered by Danny Trejo’s iconic character, Machete Cortez in this new hilarious fun-as-hell sequel by Austin director Robert Rodriguez. It’s one of several “Machete don’t” pieces of dialogue that is said throughout the film. It’s funny, because Rodriguez actually made a ‘Star Wars‘ film with Machete in it this time around. Not only do we see machete lightsabers and similar characters in the ‘Star Wars’ universe, but we also get carbonite and landspeeders, and at the end of the film, it all comes full circle, as you’ll say, “I just watched a ‘Star Wars’ movie made by Robert Rodriguez. With an all-star cast and even more blood, guts, and kills than the first one, this over-the-top and highly entertaining sequel will sure make decent returns to warrant a third sequel, which is heavily promoted in the form of a trailer before the film starts and at the end of the film entitled ,’Machete Kills Again…In Space‘.

 Step Brothers movie image Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly

I love a good buddy movie and won’t even pretend that I don’t. That being said, I loved Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly teaming up in Step Brothers! Needless to say, this news about a new film from Sony and Ferrell’s joint company, Gary Sanchez Productions, with Adam McKay, got me excited for what this movie will have in store. Sony is remembering that sweet payday that Step Brothers brought them when it earned $100 million in domestic box office sales, I’m sure. Devil’s Night is the name of this potential comedy gold. If that name doesn’t evoke memories from movies like The Crow and Grosse Pointe Blank, well you just haven’t been paying attention.

There is now a high council in place with Rick, Daryl, Carol, Sasha and Hershel on it. You can see how everybody has fallen into new roles within the prison community and grown as almost celebrities in the zombie apocalypse. There is a calm with the chaos of the world that they live in.

Film Review: ‘We Are What We Are’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

WeAreWhatWeAre1-e1380810237699

I had no idea what to expect from Jim Mickle’s ‘We Are What We Are’. I went in knowing nothing about it, other than it was a remake of a recent Spanish film of the same name. I was wholly surprised on how good this movie was and what it was about. This haunting film is ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ for the Indie film crowd. It’s beautiful, brutal, and very well acted. Needless to say, this little horror film is a fantastic addition to he genre and has me all giddy for Mickle’s next film, whatever it might be. As this film won’t be getting the widest release it deserves, and its subject matter might not be at the top of everyone’s list, this movie should be seen and I hope it makes a decent box office dent in the indie film scene.

Film Review: ‘Captain Phillips’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Tom Hanks

Tom Hanks is back out on the water again with Paul Greengrass‘ ‘Captain Phillips‘, ste true story that was covered in the media a few years ago, where cargo ship captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) and his crew were attacked by Somali pirates off the coast of Africa during a delivery, and where Phillips was actually taken hostage in a tony life boat for a few days. As there have been several survival movies coming out as of recently, this one in particular can sit high with the rest of them, as Greengrass and Hanks do exceptional work and keep this two-hour long suspenseful film on the edge of your seat. I expect high box office returns for this outing as Hanks and the plot will drive people to theaters this weekend.

Streetmagic-david blaine

 

There are certain types of entertainment where you can have several favorites. You can listen to multiple bands that fit into the same genre. But when it comes to performance magic, I believe you’re either a Copperfield or a David Blaine fan. Personally, I’m a David Copperfield girl, not the tortured waif. Yes, the one with the hair and the face. Him. So, I never jumped on the whole David Blaine band wagon. After all, there are only so many ‘David’s’ a girl can love.  While David Tennant takes up most of my space, David Copperfield occupies a portion. Anyhow, as I was saying.

If you’re not a Wilfred fan, get ready for everyone to shut up about it, as the fourth season will be it’s final. Who would have thought a series about a pot-smoking dog (Jason Gann) that appears as a human in a dog costume would have three seasons to begin with? Elijah Wood has played Ryan, the only person that can see his neighbor’s dog as a full grown man in a dog suit. I’m depressive and I don’t see that…maybe it’s the manic side that brings it out?

Film Review: ‘Parkland’

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

parkland-paul-giamatti

I currently reside in Dallas, TX. Whenever a friend or family member come to visit, one of the things on their list to see is the 6th Floor book depository, which is now a museum, and where exactly the former US president Kennedy was assassinated. There is actually an “X” in the middle of the road painted on the asphalt where the bullet went through. You can still stand on the grassy knoll and picture in your mind the events of that horrible day. There have been countless movies and tv shows since his death that have documented or told a narrative story on what happened, but nothing has been shown like Peter Landesman’s ‘Parkland‘ before.

Film Review: ‘Runner Runner’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

628x471

  Even the title is bad. ‘Runner Runner‘ might have looked good on paper and with director Brad Furman (‘The Lincoln Lawyer‘) hiring Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, and Gemma Arterton in this online gambling thriller, you might be excited to see this movie. Fortunately for me, this was only 90 minutes. But it was a long 90 minutes of laughable, cheesy dialogue, zero note characters, and virtually non suspense, with the exception of a short scene with crocodiles. The setup is decent enough, but was poorly executed on all levels. I don’t expect this flop of a film to make any real money at the box office. Read the rest of this entry »

Metallica: Through the Never announces itself as an explosive, visceral experience from the very first scene: an overhead helicopter shot of the city, riding high over a thoroughfare that leads us to the stadium, coming down to ground level, glimpsing a fan or two, then following a young skater kid down to the depths of the arena where he begins an unforgettable night as roadie for the band. This sequence is so chock-full of filmmaking prowess that one instantly realizes we’re in for a ride of visual delights. The film lives up to that opening sequence and then some.

If ‘Gravity‘ was the last movie I saw before I died, I would die happy. This is hands down, the best film of the year so far, and quite possibly the best film of the last several years. Alfonso Cuaron has come back with a vengeance after a seven year hiatus. Cauron directed ‘Children of Men‘ and the third ‘Harry Potter‘ film to name a couple. I know all of you have seen the trailer for this film, and let me just say, you’re in the for the most thrilling ride of your life.

If Hollywood teaches us anything lately it’s that evil sells. Think of Disney, alone. You will be hard pressed to find any of their cash cow cartoons without an utterly evil antagonist. Which I love. It seems like you take the scary, evil guy in any horror movie and stack them against Dr. Facilier from ‘Princess and the Frog‘, or Maleficent from ‘Sleeping Beauty‘, and my favorite, although he’s far less scary – Captain Hook from ‘Peter Pan‘. I repeat. Evil sells. Every major motion picture studio and every 3rd grader with dreams of being a film maker know this, too.
