FILM REVIEW: ‘RIGOR MORTIS’!!

by Justin Cline on May 30th, 2014

There’s a popular brand of snack food on the market called Munchies. It contains pretzels, cheese curls, and two different kinds of chips. I like to believe that all four of these individual items are produced in the same giant factory, and at the end of the workday, whatever’s left on the floor gets swept up and bagged and voilà. A brand new product is born.

Rigor Mortis, a Hong Kong horror film hitting theaters on June 6th, is the cinematic equivalent of Munchies. Make no mistake; though it may contain things that you like, it’s largely made up of leftovers. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

avengers_movie_thanos-thanos-major-role-in-guardians-of-the-galaxy

That’s right. Actor Josh Brolin has been signed on to play the big bad villain in the next few Marvel movies, Thanos. Thanos was the the purple guy in space seen at the end credit scene in the first ‘Avengers‘ film. And now the guy who played Brand, the older brother in ‘The Goonies‘ will play him. This is excellent news.

Film Review: ‘Maleficent’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

maleficent-angelina-jolie-2014-movie-hd

Different is not necessarily Evil. This is the lesson learned with the telling of King Arthur’s story through the eyes of Morgaine Le Fay in The Mists of AvalonMaleficent provides a different point of view for this timeless villain.  The original insight of Maleficent’s character was in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty where Maleficent was a wicked captor of a gentle beauty.  In her blazing greens and purples, she was terrifying and extremely menacing.  Maleficent offers the origin and growth of a fairy that is just a little bit different than the rest but nonetheless beautiful and powerful.

Film Review: ‘Ida’!!

140501_MOV_IdaMovie.jpg.CROP.promo-mediumlarge

It’s hard to think of “Ida” as a film, although it certainly is a marvelous one.  Rather, it feels like a work of art that should be displayed on a museum wall.  Perhaps a big part of the feel is because of it’s incredibly efficient run time, like an iconic photograph or a masterpiece painting, it says a lot with very little.  It is a minimalist piece in every sense of the word, but it leaves an emotional punch that lingers.

Film Review: ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West’

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

hr_A_Million_Ways_to_Die_in_the_West_2

Seth MacFarlane is back with his second directorial effort with ‘A Million Ways To Die In The West‘. His first film, ‘Ted‘, which was a huge box office success, netting in almost $600 million from a budget of only $50 million, pretty much guaranteed that he would get to make any movie he wanted to in the future. MacFarlane is most known for creating and providing many of the voices for the cartoon shows such as ‘Family Guy‘, ‘The Cleveland Show‘, and ‘American Dad‘. All of which are family oriented shows. But with ‘Ted‘, he took it a couple of steps further and made a solid ‘R’ rated movie with tons of laughs and a decent story.

Well it looks like Daredevil has been cast and it is NOT Ben Affleck. Rather it is the great actor Charlie Cox who is most known for his role on HBO’sBoardwalk Empire‘ and lead in ‘Stardust‘.

That’s right, the film that surprisingly hit big back in 2002 will be getting a sequel. I just can’t believe it hasn’t happened already. I guess they tried to make it live on through a TV series on Prime-Time, but that only lasted for a few episodes. But now, Nia Vardalos, the star and writer of the first film, has penned the new screenplay will reprise her role again along with John Corbett, who played her boyfriend turned husband in ‘My Big Fat Greek Wedding‘.

The Discovery Channel’sShark Week‘ 2014 is coming up soon, and since SyFy changed the entire Shark game last year with the incredible ‘Sharknado‘, they are jumping on the bandwagon with ‘Sharknado Week‘, which will show the first film, and premiere the sequel ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One‘, along with Roger Corman’s new film ‘Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda‘. I of course expect a few other amazing programs to be announced. But we do know that ‘Sharknado 2‘ will debut on July 30th, and the Corman film will air on July 26th. I can only imagine that Discovery is not too happy with this announcement, but hey, ‘Sharknado Week’  sounds pretty awesome!

I’m glad everyone has calmed down now. Back a few months ago, Quentin Tarantino announced that he would be making a new BADASS film called ‘The Hateful Eight‘, which we reported on. Unfortunately, a website called ‘Gawker’ got a hold of the script somehow and posted the entire thing online for anyone and everyone to read. Well, that really pissed off Tarantino as it should and he filed a lawsuit against the website and said he would not make the film. Well I’m glad that was said under high tempers and nobody really meant it, because that would really suck if we didn’t get a new Tarantino movie.

You can mark another win for Drafthouse Films, the film company connected to The Alamo Drafthouse Theater chain. This past week  at the Cannes Film Festival, Drafthouse Films picked up a crime thriller called ‘La French‘ that stars Jean Dujardin and directed by Cedric Jimenez. And get this – Drafthouse bought the U.S. distribution rights after the people at Drafthouse watched an eight minute reel of the film. Not only that, but Jimenez was signed to one of the top talent agencies in Hollywoood, which is WME.

Netflix is in final talks with director/actor David Wain and writer/director Michael Showalter to revive their hit cult comedy film ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘, which is one of the funniest films of all time. Wain and Showalter are looking to make this into a prequel series, which will reunite the entire cast from the original film back in 2001, a lot of those actors being Oscar and Emmy winners now.

Wright who has directed ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘The World’s End‘, and ‘Scott Pilgrim‘ was announced as the director of ‘Ant-Man‘ a few years ago and recently released casting news that Paul Rudd was going to star in the film. Well, we got word today that Wright and Marvel have parted ways due to creative differences on where they want to see the film go.

Comic Con. The word evokes a range of feelings from a vast diversity of people who come together to celebrate their passions and show their allegiances to their fandoms.  The ways to do this are many, be it through dressing up as their favorite character, meeting the actors and actresses who bring those characters to life, or expressing it in countless other ways, Dallas Comic Con of 2014 offered something for everyone.  Between the vendors offering one of a kind collectibles, getting one on one time with celebrity guests, the panels that brought like minds together, and the sense of camaraderie and belonging between the attendees, I was not disappointed in my first foray into the world of comic book conventions.

Film Review: ‘Frequencies’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

frequencies

Now here’s a gem of a film that, not without its flaws, emerges as a unique and worthwhile experience. Frequencies tells of a world, perhaps a near future, where each person is identified by their resonance with the planet.  Much like our ideas of IQ’s, a person’s frequency is a measurable feature, but in this universe, it is measurable to a point where the probability of failure or success at life is predictable with little room for error.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

x_men_days_of_future_past_banner-wide

The big blockbuster movies for the summer of 2014 have officially kicked off and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ might be the best one yet. For the past year, I’ve been looking forward to seeing this and original X-Men director Bryan Singer returning to this storyline. If you remember, back in 2000, Singer was the first director to take on a big budget comic book movie with the first ‘X-Men‘ film, and the studios were waiting to see if it was going to do enough business. Made on what seems to be a modest budget of only $75 million, the first X-Men film made $300 million domestically, and that’s before 3D and all of the IMAX screens. Well, the rest is history, as we have had tons of comic book films come out since then. But it feels great to be back with the one that started it all.

I am a Marvel girl. I am. But after the last ensemble X-Men movie (Last Stand), I was devastated at what had become of my beloved mutant team. Then, First Class came out, which gave me a lot of hope. Then they announced Bryan Singer would return to direct the next installment. Dare I get my hopes up more? Then they shared the “Days of Future Past” storyline. I was instantly hooked. The cast started rolling in, and I got even more hopeful and well, I was really happy after the first preview. It looked good, even great.

Blended movie (2)

If twenty years ago, I were to tell you that when I mentioned the name Adam Sandler, you would have turned your nose up and scoffed, you probably wouldn’t believe me. There was a time when Adam Sandler’s name was the first thing you thought about when the subject of comedy came up. With his unforgettable characters on ‘SNL‘ to his hilarious comedy albums to his early films like ‘Billy Madison‘ and ‘Happy Gilmore‘, we all laughed our collective asses off at these films at some point in time with Sandler’s unique brand of humor.

Have you ever watched one of those movies that you really wished was going to be good, and then it just wasn’t?  It’s a movie that makes you wish you could go back in time, make a few creative changes, maybe hire a different cinematographer, and perhaps it could have been a film you could watch in theaters.  “I’ll Follow You Down” is more akin to an episode of “The Outer Limits” or “The Twilight Zone,” but not the good Rod Serling original Twilight Zone, but rather the version that came out in the 2000’s.

You thought director Steven Soderbergh was retired, right? Wrong. Soderbergh is definitely not budging on his retirement from directing, even when it comes to the follow up of his film Magic Mike. The sequel, rumored to be titled Magic Mike XXL, is already slated for next summer. Channing Tatum is hoping that the entire cast will return to be directed by his production partner Gregory Jacobs. However, Soderberg will return to duties as cinematographer, director of photography, camera operator, and editor. That’s quite a bit of work.

Ringwald is best known for… frankly if you don’t know who Molly Ringwald is then I don’t know how to help you or your lack of pop culture knowledge.

Dallas-Comic-Con-2014

This year’s Dallas Comic Con has come to a close and if you missed it- you missed a lot. This year’s Con was help at the massive Dallas Convention Center, while previous years were held at the (fun, but ridiculously laid out) Irving convention Center. The change to the larger venue effected everyone’s attitude toward the weekend. Having, almost, everything in the same area of one floor was a welcome change. The downfall here is that the site was so big and there was very little (read: no) signage to let people know where the different events were being held.

Good news, everyone. Anchor Bay Entertainment and Scream Factory have finally partnered up to give us horror fans something we have wanted for far too long. Not one but two different Blu-Ray box sets that spans all of the ‘Halloween‘ films. There will be tons of new bonus features, every film in high-definition, collectible packaging, and a 40-page Booklet. You can expect this amazing set in time for Halloween season, specifically on September 23rd. It’s about time they did this, because Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street already have box sets. Glad to see ‘Halloween‘ is catching up with everyone else. Now if we can just get that ‘Phantasm‘ box set to release in the US instead of the UK, all will be well.

This year at Dallas Comic Con I (pictured above in the Tardis outfit) decided to try something I had never done before. Cosplay. I kept it simple, as I do not possess a sewing machine or any type of sewing skills, and purchased my costume. I was surprised to find that people treated me differently while dressed up than they did while I was just in a regular shirt. People were friendlier, and more talkative, especially about Doctor Who. It was fun to plan out the costume but mine didn’t hold a candle to a lot of the costumes out there. I plan on getting a sewing machine and stepping it up a notch for next year, and my son has said he wants to join in on the fun seeing all the other kids dressed up. Time to get planning… as inspiration here are some of my favorite cosplays from the weekend. Enjoy.

If you haven’t seen the original film ‘Black Dynamite‘, you should highly consider taking a few hours from your weekend and watching it. It’s highly entertaining. From the big cult success of that film, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim picked up the storyline in the form of an animated series. Needless to say, the series was just as good as the film. Hell, the first episode had Black Dynamite fighting an evil version of The Jackson Five. The series will be available July 15, on Blu-ray and DVD and will Include the 10 First Season Episodes Plus  a Behind-The-Scenes Featurette, and an Original Pilot and Video Commentaries.

Since Scott released ‘Prometheus‘, which was the prequel to the ‘Alien‘ franchise, and we all saw that it did well enough at the box office to warrant a few sequels, Hollywood wanted to revive his other sci-fi film ‘Blade Runner‘.

So here is the fourth film of ‘The Transformers‘ franchise from Michael Bay, who has basically rebooted his own series. And yes, Steven Spielberg is still producing to make a few extra bucks. But don’t count on Shia LaBeouf running around screaming in this one. Instead, you’ll have Mark Wahlberg (who was in Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘) trying to save the day. Hopefully there is a scene of him rapping and dancing.  Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller and Ken Watanabe also star. You can expect a lot of explosions and chaos, but not much else. The film opens up June 27th.  Enjoy.

godzilla-2014-wallpaper-images-photos-0302091031

Despite a rich and incredibly varied film history, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more famous Japanese cinematic export than Godzilla. Born at Toho Company in 1954, he’s still alive and kicking ass, as it were, at the ripe age of sixty. Cast as a villain and a hero over the years, whatever his role, he has always been nature’s favorite solution to just about any problem. Six decades ago he was awakened by atomic bomb testing and took revenge on mankind for creating them. In this new Gareth Edwards iteration, other monsters feed on radiation from our nuclear power plants in order to wreak similar havoc, so Godzilla is sent to annihilate them.

Million Dollar Arm Film

This was another film I was unsure about. Of course I adore Jon Hamm, and his work on Mad Men is beyond incredible. And Lake Bell is a definite keeper after seeing her film “In A World” and her recurring role on ‘Children’s Hospital. But this movie could have been a hit or miss for me. Disney has made a great family movie with ‘Million Dollar Arm‘ that I wasn’t expecting to get sucked into and obviously invested in. You can tell it was passionately and lovingly made and disney quite possibly has a home-run on their hands.

Steadman is now 77 years old and lives with his family in a nice villa in the countryside of England where his fellow friend Johnny Depp came over and played the role of interviewer during this 80 minute well-edited documentary.

‘How I Met Your Dad’ Is Not Moving Forward!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 14th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER

CBS executive Nina Tassler has confirmed that ‘How I Met Your Dad‘, the spinoff of ‘How I Met Your Mother‘ is no longer moving forward with the network and that the producers and showrunners can now pitch it and shop it other places. This is an interesting decision since ‘HIMYM‘ was one of the most popular shows on television and had just cast Meg Ryan to narrate the show.

Film Review: ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 13th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

godzilla_2014_poster_51784

 It has been sixty years since ‘Godzilla‘, the true king of all monsters first graced us with his appearance on the big screen. He definitely made a big impact on audiences around the world and spawned 31 sequels and remakes since then. Director Gareth Edwards brings that number to 32 with his epic and dark toned reboot that is sure to please fans young and old and have them roaring with joy as they exit the theater. Edwards was Hollywood’s top  choice to reboot this franchise after everyone saw his 2010 film called ‘Monsters‘, which focused on two lost lonely souls who have to trek through a quarantined zone in Mexico, while evading giant tentacled monsters.

Director Zack Snyder took to his TWITTER account and released the first photo of the new Batmobile and Ben Affleck as Batman.

Channing Tatum has officially been cast to play fan favorite X-Men, Gambit in future ‘X-Men‘ films.

Re-Cast: ‘The Three Amigos’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

three-amigos-01

Here is our 34th episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘ and with one of our infamous Re-Cast segments.  We had a lot of fun with this one. We went ahead and recast ‘The Three Amigos‘, which starred the funniest three people in the world – Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase. It’s damn near impossible to remake and even recast this film, because it is indeed perfect, but in this day and age with so many reboots and remakes, it just might happen. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us? We hope to see this at least on the Broadway stage sometime soon as a musical. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

logotyo1

We now have the FOURTH round elimination for our new Bracket or Elite 8, which is the Best TV Shows from the 1990s through present day. Several weeks ago, we took a couple of days to come up with 64 of the best tv shows from that time-frame, and we put them in a NCAA-style tournament bracket to see what would emerge as the best show of that time. We separated them into two categories, which were comedy series and drama series. Even in this THIRD round, there were some big fights amongst us. Blood was drawn, bones were broken, words were said, dogs and cats started living together – MASS HYSTERIA. You can click the link below to see the bracket in its entirety and print it out and play along.  This was a lot of fun. We will be posting some images of our bracket picks for you to see in full on our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Hello, Jana here,

Meryl-Streep

There are a few names in Hollywood that can cherry-pick working conditions. Meryl Streep is among the very top of that list. Beginning her career in 1975 with a total of 74 projects in her resume, she has played every kind of character you can imagine. Her performances are moving, funny, realistic or greatly fantastical. No matter what film she’s in, she’s the top of my list of favorite actresses. I’m in high anticipation of what will surely be, another excellent musical performance in the film version of ‘Into The Woods‘.

John Krasinski Directing ‘The Hollars’!!!

Hello, Jana here,

john-krasinski-thumb-28636

John Krasinski is a remarkable actor. He’s a world-class funny man and a die hard Red Sox fan to boot. Based on these factors, alone, I will never be anything but a life-long fan of his. Then we factor in his branching interests from acting into directing, this guy just gets better and better, right?! Following his directorial debut with 2009’s ‘Brief Interviews with Hideous Men‘, Krasinski has announced his newest directing project with ‘The Hollars‘.

Oh, we knew the fun wasn’t dead, yet. If ‘Insidious‘ and ‘Insidious 2‘ made some cash, of course ‘Insidious: Chapter 3‘ will bring in even more! It’s the math of Hollywood. Blumhouse Productions has put the writer responsible for ‘Saw‘ and ‘Insidious‘, Leigh Whannell to direct. Whannell wrote and acted in the first two chapters of ‘Insidious‘ but will be making his directorial debut with this venture. The film is set to drop April 3, 2015.

James Cameron has made absolutely no attempt to hide the fact that he’s deeply inquisitive about the deepest points of the ocean. Anyone that watched ‘Titanic‘ could tell that it was more than a story about a 2-day love. It was an undying love letter to the ocean that Cameron loves so deeply.

I had the honor of speaking with Pinhead himself, Doug Bradley at Texas Frightmare Weekend. We discussed his favorite ‘Hellraiser‘ moment, the construction of his costume and make-up, and his latest project, which is adorable. It was so great to talk to him here in Dallas. He is such a sweetheart under all of those pins, white makeup and chains. We hope to see more of Doug and Pinhead in the near future. But until then, we will see him in our nightmares. Enjoy this fun interview.

She is such a chameleon in the roles she picks that she is almost unrecognizable in person. We talk about her character development and how much of a bad ass she really is. This was such a fun interview. Enjoy.

“You know what Jack Burton always says. It’s all in the reflexes.” But in this case, it’s all in the comic books. That’s right, ‘Big Trouble in Little China‘ is coming to comic book form starting June 4th from Boom! Studios. The John Carpenter film from 1986 starred Kurt Russell as Jack Burton, a hilarious truck driver who helps his friend Wang rescue his girlfriend from the evil supernatural Lopan and his monster and demon minions. I’m so happy that we get more ‘Big Trouble in Little China‘ now almost thirty years later.

Neighbors-Movie-Still-1

Let me start off this review by saying comedy movies have gone straight downhill in the past 10 years. I don’t know what demographic survey told movie studios that we wanted our comedies with a side of moral lesson, but this girl, for one, HATES my comedies anywhere near a moral lesson (I’m looking at you ‘Bridesmaids‘).  I truly miss the golden era of Adam Sandler films and comedy recordings. Sometimes settling into a good dick and fart joke film is just what you need. Don’t think about the humor, it’s just funny!

Hi kids, Jana here,

  Bibb County GA SHBP

If you’ve read much of what I’ve written before, I’ve led the band railing against movie remakes. Yeah, that’s me in the front with the baton and the megaphone. However, there are some films that it’s ok to remake. Doesn’t make it right, but it’s not one I’ll lose sleep over. The remake of ‘Point Break‘, ‘Roadhouse‘, ‘Ghost‘ and ‘Dirty Dancing‘ are all examples of films that do not need touched by anyone other than slight re-touching to make the colors more compatible with HD televisions. Basically anything Patrick Swayze was ever in should be kept sacred. I use ‘Swayze’ as a verb after all. No one ever gets their ass kicked, anymore – They get full on Swayzed. In short, don’t mess with the man’s films!!

I’ve pretty much given up on all music award shows over the past several years. The lack of real talent and people who consider themselves musicians are being regarded as music geniuses, when in fact they just aren’t. Most of the main-stream music industry has become more about costumes and being naked rather than actually having a good voice, using real instruments, and putting those two things together to create something magical. Of course there are exceptions to this, but there are not many. But speaking of something magical, let’s talk about Michael Jackson.

Gerard Butler Drops Out of ‘Point Break’ Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on May 7th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

gerard-butler-photo-16

Gerard Butler has moved back onto my ‘Oh, I love him’ list. Butler took up permanent residence on that list from the time I saw his chiseled, gorgeous features in ‘300‘. Then I elevated him to crazy heights after I saw his turn as Phantom and heard a gorgeous voice. Then the love affair came to an unfortunate fork in the road when I learned the horrible truth that Butler planned to take a role that Patrick Swayze made his own as Bodhi  in ‘Point Break‘. Luke Bracey is still set to play FBI agent Johnny Utah originally brought to life by a post Wyld Stallyns Keanu Reeves.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

FLNT_ART4C01_CACS_50TH

Warner Bros. is developing a reboot of ‘The Flinstones‘ again. Only this time, they want to do it as a full length animated feature rather than a live action one. Back almost twenty years ago, Universal made the live action version that had John Goodman as Fred Flinstone, Rick Moranis as Barney Rubble, Elizabeth Perkins, Rosie O’Donnell, and even Elizabeth Taylor. Despite the film looking cool, it wasn’t that great of a film. And the sequel that came soon after was even worse. But it was of course going to fail, because the movie became infamous for having over 30 writers pen the script.

Texas Frightmare Weekend Recap!!

To put it lightly, ‘Texas Frightmare Weekend‘ was AWESOME.  From the amazing guests to the outrageous costumes, to the comics, toys, posters, and movie props – all of it was a blast! This was my first time at Texas Frightmare Weekend so I wasn’t sure what to expect. But needless to say my expectations were succeeded. It was at the Hyatt Hotel at DFW airport and by the time I got there on Friday, there were already a ton of people there. This hotel is perfect for this event.  There was ample room for everyone to move around and everything was easily accessible. I immediately went to see Mr. George Romero (the godfather of zombie films) and Tom Savini (makeup artist extraordinaire). Their lines were fairly long but they moved quickly. Romero looks great and seemed to have a great time while Savini looks like he is tired of the convention circuit. It made me laugh. Everyone who worked at the event was very helpful as well.

Film Review: ‘Blue Ruin’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 7th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

13870-2

I had no idea what to expect from ‘Blue Ruin‘, other than it played well at previous film festivals over the past year. I’m here to tell you that this very dark mix of comedy and violence is one of the better films to come out this year. Director/writer Jeremy Saulnier has concocted a brilliant and suspenseful script and never makes us choose to like out main character Dwight (brilliantly played by Macon Blair). This is Saulnier’s second feature film he’s directed and is what most directors would hope to accomplish with there sophomoric effort. ‘Blue Ruin‘ is a southern style revenge tale that will make a lasting impression for years to come and will make you think twice about exacting revenge on someone.

She is middle aged and living with her mother, runs a restaurant that she can no longer pay the bills to cover, and her lover has just left his wife… for a another woman.

Robert Downey Jr. can do anything. I mean the man looks better as he ages, he single-handedly anchors ‘The Avengers‘ with his snark, wit and narcissism, he’s even pursued a singing career releasing an album in 2004 called ‘The Futurist’. It’s safe to assume that anything he touches right now is going to be golden. This is probably what Warner Bros. is assuming since they are teaming up with RDJ and his wife, Susan Downey, working under their Team Downey banner to produce ‘Cloaked‘.

Hello, Jana here,

tct_article_story_large

If you want to make a spoof of every romantic comedy you’ve ever seen, you should cast Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler. That’s what ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘ director David Wain did with ‘They Came Together‘. Poehler is the perfect choice for a corny spoof. She’s gained legions of fans with her quirky performances in ‘Saturday Night Live‘, ‘Mean Girls‘ and ‘Blades of Glory‘. Rudd is always going to be the dorky Dave Paris in Baz Luhrman’sRomeo + Juliet‘.

Film Review: ‘Locke’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Locke-640x364

I’m a sucker for movies that take place all in  one setting. From films like ‘Buried‘, ‘Cube‘, and ‘Rope‘, these directors have told fascinating stories with rich characters in one small setting. This allows us to really connect with our characters on-screen and develop a stronger relationship rather if we were seeing something with blockbuster sized special effects. Don’t get me wrong, I like those movies too, but I love these films that are set in one room. I just fully immerse myself in the story. And that’s just what I did with Steven Knight’sLocke‘, which is all set inside a moving car as a man (Tom Hardy) drives from Birmingham to London one evening to take responsibility for a mistake and prove to himself that he is a better man than his father was.

Film Review: ‘Musical Chairs’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Musical-Chairs-1

I’ve been a fan of dance for my entire life. From as long as I can remember, I’ve taught myself to dance by watching old VHS tapes of Michael Jackson, movies that starred Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly, and concerts of Motown legends that showcased a lot of dance numbers. Later in life, I even took some classes to learn how to move better. Needless to say, movies that involve dancing make me happy. I’ll rephrase that. Movies with a great plot, solid acting, and great direction that involve the art of dance make me happy. I will leave the ‘Step Up‘ films on the side of the road any day.

Hillary’s Review of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’!!

Hillary T. Here…

amazing spider-man-2 poster

In all fairness, I thought this movie was gonna suck. I couldn’t even remember the villain in the first film and even though I liked Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/ Spider-Man, I didn’t think he could save this movie. The reason is that there are three major villains billed for this sequel, and as time as shown in the past, that is a lot for a movie to take on. Needless to say, it’s heavy handed for sure.
