Film Review: ‘Fading Gigolo’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

FADING GIGOLO

I never thought I’d see the day where Woody Allen would play a pimp who had a male prostitute played by John Turturro. Fortunately for everyone, that day has finally come, and I’m proud to say that I’m a big fan of the film ‘Fading Gigolo‘.We all know who Woody Allen is and most of us know John Turturro from a variety of acting roles he has done over the past couple of decades including Jesus Quintana (‘The Big Lebowski‘), Pete (‘O Brother Where Art Thou‘), Knish (‘Rounders‘), and of course Barton Fink. I could keep going, but you get the picture.

Film Review: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

hr_The_Amazing_Spider-Man_2_10

I was half nervous and half excited for this sequel to one of my favorite superheroes to be released onto the world. I am a huge fan of the first film that came out a couple of years ago and thought that it was a solid reboot, even better than the original one from Sam Raimi. And I felt that it needed a reboot since the third Spidey film was one of the worst movies ever made. Needless to say, director Marc Webb and actor Andrew Garfield did a phenomenal job with their version of the web-slinger. The story was spot on, the script was solid, and the acting by everyone involved was terrific.

It looks like Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are brining back ‘Project Greenlight‘ to HBO. If you don’t remember, ‘Project Greenlight‘ was a reality show where Ben Affleck and Matt Damon searched for new filmmakers and writers, ultimately giving the winner a chance to make their own film and distribute it. The show followed the entire filmmaking process. I believe there were only three seasons of this show with the first two seasons revolving around two indie drama films. One of them starred Shia Lebouf and Amy Smart. The third season was the best as they went with a fun balls-to-the-wall horror film with tons of gore. That movie was called ‘Feast‘ and spawned several sequels. It was directed by John Gulager, the son of Clu Gulager. Official press release below.

Film Review: ‘Teenage’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 30th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

BgIjQeXCcAALTnu.jpg_largess

I spent some time reviewing the documentary ‘Teenage‘ today. Jon Savage is a Cambridge educated writer, broadcaster and music journalist. He is known for his award-winning history of the Sex Pistols and punk music. This documentary was based on his book ‘Teenage: The Creation of Youth Culture‘. Director Matt Wolf co-wrote the script with Savage. Featuring voices that tell first-hand accounts from American, British and German viewpoints while a collage of archival material give the film its depth. Narrative voices performed by Jena Malone, Ben Whishaw, Ahlden Ehrenreich, Ben Rosenfield and Jessie Usher among others.

Film Review: ‘Particle Fever’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 28th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

particle-span-master675

Particle Fever is a documentary about the turning on of the Cern large hadron collider (LHC) for the very first time and what the results might mean to the scientific community and the physicists as they look for the Higgs bosom or “God particle”. I was lucky enough to talk my husband, who just happens to be a physics teacher, into watching this with me in case there were things I didn’t understand. For the most part I was able to follow without his help. The film has fortunately been made in such a way, that a laymen like myself can comprehend, if not fully understand what’s going on.

Hello, Jana here,

roald-dahl-the-bfg

Roald Dahl is a fantastic author that doesn’t get nearly enough mainstream credit. Film-goers have enjoyed his stories for years and most of us grew up with at least one of them. Favorites like ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘The Witches‘, ‘Matilda‘ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox‘ are a few examples of Dahl’s work that has been given a big screen treatment. Now we can add to that list ‘The BFG‘.

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

‘Friday the 13th’ Revamped as TV Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

friday-series_616

I love a good slasher movie. I love when the air gets cooler, days get dark earlier and I’m curled up inside the house with windows open, some candles lit and watching someone’s newest vision of whatever maniac of the moment is on my screen.  Sometimes the more they remake a slasher, the better they end up being. Of course I’m a giant fan of bad movies, bad horror films to be exact. Now I see one of my favorite horror series ‘Friday the 13th‘ is being courted for not only a remake, but a remake of platform as well. This isn’t another movie version we’re talking about, this will be developed into a 1-hour long TV show.

‘Jem and the Holograms’ Gets a Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

JEM_and_the_HOLOGRAMS_by_Thuddleston

I was one of the fans that was super excited about the live-action ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ movie in the works. I loved Jem, I knew if I got up and ready for school early enough, I would be done and could watch all but the last 3 minutes of an episode before I had to leave for school. I was in the fifth grade, I think and swore I was going to be like Jem when I grew up. I did the whole singing with a hairbrush into a mirror bit. I danced like crazy and just knew somewhere, someone would realize the genius and promise I had.

Hello, Jana here,

The-Hobbit-Horizontal__121120103557-575x348

Peter Jackson is the current go-to-guy for sweeping epics including Dwarves, Elves and dragons. The original ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy was entirely successful and brought to life a story a lot of us grew up reading. I thought the Rankin and Bass animations were pretty awesome for what they were, but Jackson’s film treatment of the series blew away any of my expectations. Before Jackson began the conversion, I had the poorly carried out vision of a little nightmare of a film called ‘Dungeons & Dragons‘ by director Courtney Solomon, stuck in my head as for what Jackson’s films would probably end up looking like. This is one moment where I was beyond thrilled to be wrong. Now someone go back and fix the ‘Dungeons & Dragons‘ movie, please?

Josh Gad Teaming Up With Disney Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

8065JoshGad800

When we talk about ‘Frozen‘ a few things probably jump to mind. Be it the icy tundra it’s set in, the fantastic, albeit overplayed ‘Let it Go‘, or the comic relief that is either Olaf the hug-loving snowman or how John Travolta stumbled over the name Idina Menzel during the Academy Awards that created memes and quizzes as far as the eye could see.

Hello, Jana here,

Max+Brooks

Some people are riding a wave behind their parents’ fame having little to no reason to be known on their own. There are some people, like Joe Hill that use a different name so they are judged solely on their own work and not that of a well-known parent, in this case, Stephen King. There is another kind that does not change their name, but doesn’t go around waving their parents’ names around that seek success on their own. Max Brooks is in that category. Most people hear his name and immediately think ‘World War Z‘ or the book ‘Zombie Survival Guide‘. The fact that he’s the son of the fantastic and hilarious actors and filmmaker Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft is not used to elevate his success.

Hello, Jana here,

Disney has always been more than just an animated studio, but when you produce such awesomeness as ‘Sleeping Beauty‘, ‘Robin Hood‘, ‘Peter Pan‘, ‘Aladdin‘ and ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ it’s not something that is always remembered. Plus, we begin life learning that a Disney movie is something animated with catchy songs, at least that’s what my kids learned first. The studio has been finding different ways to get more bang for their buck for a long time. That’s why there will be a celebrated release, MAYBE a sequel in theaters, then a third or more straight to DVD. Take that same movie with established characters and it pops up on the Disney Channel as a brand new animated series. Not to mention the obligatory Disney park tie-in and the countless branding options from clothing to toys to bedding and all things in between.

Film Review: ‘The Other Woman’!!

the-other-woman-movie-2014

I honestly would not have given this movie a second look. I would not have paid to see it, or rented it, if I had not been asked to screen it for Boomstick Comics. I am so glad I did!  We walked in, and from the start, ‘The Other Woman’ was not what I expected. I was so pleasantly surprised. This movie’s plot line is absolutely unbelievable, for sure, but for what it is (a chick flick), it is downright fun.

Interview With John Turturro on ‘Fading Gigolo’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

JesusQuintana

I had the extreme pleasure to sit down with the legendary actor/writer/director John Turturro and discuss his new film, ‘Fading Gigolo‘. We talk about making the movie, casting Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, and Liev Schreiber, as well as some of his favorite moments in film. We even got Mr. Turturro to reprise his Jesus Quintana character from ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and asked him about his bowling skills and the tournament with the Dude and Walter. It was such a fun interview in Dallas, TX., and his film ‘Fading Gigolo‘ is one of the best films of the year. Go See it. CLICK HERE  for the review.

Movie Quotes

Elizabeth Swann:
You will listen to me! LISTEN! The other ships will still be looking to us, to the Black Pearl, to lead, and what will they see? Frightened bilgerats aboard a derelict ship? No, no they will see free men and freedom! And what the enemy will see, they will see the flash of our cannons, and they will hear the ringing of our swords, and they will know what we can do! By the sweat of our brow and the strength of our backs and the courage in our hearts! Gentlemen, hoist the colors!
