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 »

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’!!

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’!!

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.

Danny McBride, who is most known for his role as Kenny Powers in HBO ‘s ‘Eastbound and Down‘, has just signed onto a new series for the pay network for a comedy series called ‘Vice Principals‘. Knowing McBride’s past comedic work and judging by the title of this alone, this has comedy gold written all over it.

We all know that Netflix and Marvel have teamed up to bring us a treasure trove of TV series based on their comic book  characters. One of them being Daredevil/Matt Murdock. 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‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

My-Big-Fat-Greek-Wedding

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‘.

sharknado-2-the-second-one-300x300

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!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-hateful-eight-poster

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.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

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.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

whas

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.

Edgar Wright Will Not Be Directing ‘Ant-Man’ Anymore!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Worlds End - Photocall

I’m afraid I have some bad news. Director Edgar Wright has exited ‘Ant-Man‘, the upcoming Marvel film. This just sucks. 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.

Dallas Comic Con 2014 Coverage!!

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.

Film Review: ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2014

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.

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-Movie-Poster

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.

Film Review: ‘Blended’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

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.
