We had the distinct honor to talk with the amazing director Nicolas Winding Refn and his wife Liv Corfixen in Austin, Tx at Fantastic Fest 2014. Refn is one of the advocates for the horror and crime genre and in addition to his great films, he can be seen on several bonus features of other Blu-rays talking about films. Refn directed ‘Valhalla Rising‘, ‘Bronson‘, and the recent films that starred Ryan Gosling which were ‘Drive‘ and ‘Only God Forgives‘. His new film, which was directed by his wife Liv is called ‘My Life‘ and chronicled the production of ‘Only God Forgives‘. It’s a great documentary. Here we discuss what went into that production, some of his previous projects and others that became unrealized, and of course some of their favorite scenes in film. Enjoy.

New Trailer For ‘Taken 3’ aka ‘Tak3n’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 30th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

taken-3-poster-440x600

 

I love Liam Neeson. I love his voice, his looks – the whole package. I watch everything he’s been in, yes, even the crap movies. Believe me, there are some really bad movies in that lineup, too. He was the perfect voice for Aslan in ‘The Chronicles of Narnia‘, he was amazing as Hannibal in ‘The A-Team‘ and when he started his journey as Bryan Mills in ‘Taken‘, I didn’t think it was possible to love him more. Then came ‘Taken 2‘, I was excited about his return as Mills, but the film wasn’t the same as the original, no matter how hard they tried to emulate it. The end of production numbers proved it wasn’t a giant blockbuster, but still successful. Then some genius came up with the idea of ‘Tak3n‘. Yup, clever little title and Mills returns again. I have to think he didn’t agree to this after the second, but hopefully was a part of the contract when he signed on for 2. I have to hope Neeson is aware of how bad of an idea this film was but was contractually obligated to forge ahead.

“Do you understand the words that are coming out of my mouth?” That’s right, ‘Rush Hour‘, which has had three successful feature films that starred Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan as police detectives is being remade. But it won’t be a feature film. Instead it will be an action series for Warner Bros. TV. Bill Lawrence (‘Scrubs‘) and Brett Ratner (‘Rush Hour‘) will serve as showrunners and producers.

Dwayne Johnson Announces Robert Ludlum Adaptation!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 30th, 2014

Hi guys, Jana here,

dwayne_johnson_36553

Robert Ludlum is the brain that brought us the Jason Bourne novels that have spawned into an incredibly lucrative film franchise. Even though the writer died in 2001, doesn’t mean that his cannon of work is at rest. Prior to becoming a writer, Ludlum was a U.S. Marine, a theatrical actor and producer. His experience in the theatre is likely what has led his written works to film adaptation so smoothly. He authored some 27 thrillers and although Bourne may be the most well-known of Ludlum’s characters doesn’t mean he was the only one.

Hollywood is Remaking ‘Big’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Big-Movie

Hollywood is remaking one of the best comedies ever to grace the big screen. Kevin Biegel and Mike Royce are remaking the hit and iconic film from 1988 ‘Big‘ that starred Tom Hanks. Fox is the studio behind this and describes the project as an event series based on the movie that explores what it means to be an adult and what it means wot be a kid – and how in today’s modern world, those two aspects are more confused than ever.

I’m sure if you’ve owned a video game console before, you have heard or played ‘Dead Rising‘, the zombie survival video game from Capcom.

Legendary Pictures and Lorenzo di Bonaventura (‘Transformers‘) are adapting this video game into a feature film, or more so a digital feature with Zach Lipovsky directing.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

3.4.11KevinSmithByLuigiNovi1

Kevin Smith is a film maker that turned the business of making movies on it’s head. He hit the jackpot with 1994’s ‘Clerks‘. The script had “personal experience” written all over it and it made a very unexpected splash. Since then Smith has laid some pretty decent comedy on film, excluding ‘Jersey Girl‘.  I adore most of his films and it all started with ‘Clerks‘. Smith kept the indie-style film making with him the whole way. Nothing could prove that more than his latest film, ‘Tusk‘.

When I first heard about “Hector and the Search for Happiness” I was really excited for “another Simon Pegg movie”, something with slapstick comedy and probably a bad guy that could be smashed in the head with a cricket bat (Shaun of the Dead, World’s End, Hot Fuzz, Spaced). The more I started looking into the movie, the more I realized that it wasn’t going to be just another Simon Pegg film, and became intrigued about what it was he would have to offer if not bashing people in the head with a cricket bat.

Dominic West and Guy Pearce Join ‘Genius’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 26th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

There has already been some talk about a new biopic of sorts based on the life of Scribner’s iconic editor Max Perkins. Perkins worked with such literary notables as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe and Ernest Hemmingway. In hearing tales of how these respected authors worked, the amount of difficulty friends and family had with some, I can only imagine the set of balls it would take to be the one forced with fact-checking, making corrections and offering changes in whole to the manuscripts. The flip-side of the downfalls to the job is that the editor is allowed to nurture and encourage talent in it’s various forms. This is precisely what Perkins did, and what will pique the curiosity of viewers the world over.

We had the distinct honor to talk with the legendary director Kevin Smith in Austin, Tx at Fantastic Fest 2014. Smith is one of the pioneers of the indie film genre with cult hits such as ‘Clerks‘, ‘Mallrats‘, ‘Chasing Amy‘, ‘Dogma‘, ‘Jersey Girl‘, and ‘Red State‘. His new film, ‘Tusk‘ is quite the film. I’ve never seen anything like it. We discuss his ‘Red State‘ premiere in Kansas City, ‘Tusk‘, and his favorite scene in film, which might surprise some of you. It was a pleasure to talk with him and go see ‘TUSK‘. Enjoy!

Every actor with any success has that one certain film that locks their position in the industry as a solid player and worthy of being called up to the show. Deciding which picture is the defining moment in their careers is always up for discussion. Tonight I’m talking about Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. These two names have been paired since 1989 when they posed as Bill & Ted on an Excellent Adventure. In recent interviews, Winter gave out some details about the highly anticipated third film in the bodacious franchise! Before, we get to those, let’s talk about their careers.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-Simon-Pegg

You can’t help but love Simon Pegg. His roles in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, and ‘The World’s End‘ are legendary. His work on the recent ‘Star Trek‘ films, ‘Paul‘, and in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ films have been excellent and very comical. That aside, i love seeing Pegg work on dramatic films, because not only is he one of the best comedic actors around right now, but he is also one hell of a dramatic actor, and his new film ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness‘ highlights that.

Film Review: ‘The Equalizer’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Denzel Washington

This remake of an 80s television show about a retired CIA operative who now helps regular people in trouble has been in the works for quite some time. I believe it was always going to star the impressive Denzel Washington, but a few directors have been in and out of the director’s chair including Nicolas Winding Refn (‘Drive‘). He bowed out a while ago and the studio asked Antoine Fuqua to helm the project, which he accepted. Fuqua worked with Washington on the Oscar winning film ‘Training Day‘, which also earned Washington an acting Oscar.

Fernando’s Review of ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Fernando M., Here….

denzel-washington-the-equalizer

Antoine Fuqua is two men.  He is the director of the critically acclaimed “Training Day,” for starters.  He is also evidently also the man that saw “Taken” a bunch of times.  When you put those experiences together, you get “The Equalizer.” Showcasing Denzel Washington again reprising his role as Denzel Washington, a strong , smooth, moral protagonist that is going to do a bunch of stuff with guns, but somehow still manages to have a part in the script where he gets to dance.  Denzel plays Denzel quite well, so it’s hard to fault him for that.  In this case in particular, he plays action Denzel better than ever!

Nicolas Winding Refn is one of my favorite directors. The Danish born director has quite the resume. He is mostly known for making the hit film ‘Drive‘ with Ryan Gosling, but has also made ‘Valhalla Rising‘, ‘Bronson‘, and the recent ‘Only God Forgives‘, which also s tarred Gosling. Refn is also a big advocate for the cult horror film genre. He can be seen on numerous Blu-ray extras, discussing his love for that particular brand of cinema. Not only is he a great director, but he is also a big fan of movies.

Hi, MDP Here…

Dean-Ambrose

On a night that was supposed to be all about WWE’s championships, and on a night where he wasn’t even scheduled to appear, the takeaway from Night of Champions is that Dean Ambrose is the coolest. Ambrose had been off for a month after Seth Rollins and Corporate Kane took him out on an episode of Monday Night Raw. Rollins was scheduled to face Roman Reigns on Sunday, but Reigns underwent emergency surgery over the weekend and will be out for several months. While Rollins was gloating in the ring after demanding that the ref declare him the winner via forfeit, Ambrose arrived (via taxi cab; what timing!) and attacked Rollins.

Back in 2012, a new horror anthology graced the big and small screens and gave us new horror filmmakers, great stories, and scared the living daylights out of us. That anthology was called ‘V/H/S‘, named after the popular home video format from the 80s and early 90s and consisted of 4 different short films with a 5th overall wrap-around movie to tie everything together. Each segment is directed by someone different in the horror genre and every filmmaker’s unique stamp is imprinted in their own portion.

I’ve had the privilege of viewing yet another film from Fantastic-Fest, which is still in full swing in Austin, TX. This movie was a little different. That is putting it mildly, to say the least! However, no over-powering gore in this one. It’s a comedy set in a somewhat alternate world where men get the pleasure to become pregnant, carry and deliver the couple’s child! When I read the title of ‘Behind His Back (Un Bebe Dans Le Dos), It’s a French film, I had a whole different scenario going through my head of what the film would be about.

Film Review: ‘John Wick’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

John Wick Movie

It’s been a long while since we’ve received a balls out action movie that works on every level. Luckily for us, filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have concocted one hell of a brutal, fun, and highly entertaining action film, starring the man, the myth, the legend Keanu Reeves. If you’ve been bored with your action movie choices as of lately, don’t worry, ‘John Wick‘ is the ultimate action flick of the year. Sure, it’s a story that you’ve seen many times before, and I’m sure you’ll see many times after this one, but ‘John Wick‘ is filmed so well, has great performances, and is as brutal as you would hope in a gut wrenching action film, that you’ll leave the theater fully satisfied and wanting a ‘John Wick‘ franchise.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

safe_image

If you’ve met me, you would instantly know I’m one of the biggest advocates of the horror genre. I just have to get my hands on every horror title and at least view it once. No matter if it’s a terrible B-movie or one that has a treasure trove of blood and entrails, or a slow burn psychological horror, I’m usually a fan. I love having nightmares more than the usual puppy dogs and ice cream dreams, and I love when a movie truly scares me so much so that I’m a bit frightened to walk down my dark hallway at night. I know it’s a twisted mind set, and maybe it stems from my dad bringing me to see ‘Aliens‘ at such a young age in the theater, but the horror genre is where I feel most at home.

Straight out of Belgium comes a little horror movie called ‘Welp‘, otherwise known as ‘Cub‘ here in North America. ‘Cub‘ is a true return to the horror-slasher genre. I’ve never seen a slasher movie so brutal before. Usually, we see some form of jerk-off teenagers who plan a weekend vacation to get stoned, have sex, and drink like fishes. Then some supernatural force usually comes back to life or out from hiding to off each victim one by one in some gruesome fashion.

When Tim Burton makes a new movie, it gets attention. Be it good, bad or ugly, people talk about it. The newest film to add to the cannon of Burton films is ‘Big Eyes‘. His latest live action film since 2012’s ‘Dark Shadows‘.  A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her extravagant success in the 1950’s and the following legal problems she had with her husband. Why did she have legal problems with her husband, you ask? He claimed credit for her paintings in the 1960’s. Talk about a maladjusted marriage! Makes Ike and Tina Turner look like a model of marriage perfection.

La_desaparici_n_de_Eleanor_Rigby_l-934234247-large

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby‘ is a very special movie. It is shot in three different perspectives: His, Hers, and Them. The one I saw was THEM. It’s a very interesting concept and I wasn’t sure I would embrace it. I was worried that this movie was going to be pretentious, and too “artsy.” I have spent the better part of twelve hours trying to put into proper words how this movie made me feel. It tore my heart out and ripped it apart and put it back together, over and over. I sat and cried through this movie, over 75% the time. I couldn’t get over how brutally stunning it is.

Plans are for the former Dylan McKay are that he will play FBI agent Nick Dalton, a character that is eyeing the role of head of the cyber crime division out of D.C. The job went, instead, to the main character, Avery Ryan played by Patricia Arquette.

Legendary announced their plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic origins of King Kong during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. There have been King Kong stories that go so far back Faye Wray wouldn’t even be able to remember them all. It’s a story we’re all familiar with, but that doesn’t mean we will know what to expect from this film, especially when it’s based on the origins of the legendary, giant ape. Origin stories are really big right now and this one explores a topic we really haven’t been over inundated with. This has me looking forward to the film knowing nothing more than this info, right now.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

tusk-movie

There is no doubt that Kevin Smith belongs in the same bracket as some of the best directors and story tellers of all time. He along with Quentin Tarantino and a few other filmmakers in the early 90s made their own creative films on a very cheap budget and hit success and have continued to make films still to this day. But Kevin’s story is quite the fun one. This is a guy who loves comics and movies who dropped out of film school, worked at a video store and maxed out his credit cards to the tune of $20k to make his first film ‘Clerks‘.

Film Review: ‘The Maze Runner’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-maze-runner-maze-image-600x337

To end the summer and start the fall season, we have yet another Young Adult film adaptation from James Dashner’s book series called ‘The Maze- Runner‘. Like the young adult movies to come out before this one such as ‘The Giver‘, ‘Divergent‘, and even ‘The Hunger Games‘, it all takes place in the a futuristic society where Earth is mostly in ruins. And there is one person who might be able to set things straight and save a bunch people and bring peace. ‘The Maze-Runner‘ is no different when it comes to these plot points.

Film Review: ‘The Guest’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-guest-dan-stevens-1-600x400

Filmmakers Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett have struck gold again. They pleased critics and genre fans alike with last year’s slaughter fest ‘You’re Next‘ and made great entries into the ‘V/H/S‘ franchise. Their new film ‘The Guest‘, which Wingard directed and Barrett wrote, is one of the most entertaining films of the year. Not only that, but Wingard and Barrett single handedly revitalized the horror genre with this movie. It’s a hit to the nostalgic testicles that will make you fall to your knees and yell for joy.

Hollywood has found their New ‘Ben-Hur’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ben-hur-8

We have been talking about the ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake for a while here at Boomstick HQ, and now we have heard a big piece of information on casting. First, let’s go over what we already know. We do know that MGM and Paramount have teamed up to make a big budget ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake with director Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Day Watch, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) to helm the film. We also reported  earlier last week that Morgan Freeman was cast in the film. He will play Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become the big bad chariot racer he turns out to be. And for a while, we were hearing that studio execs were putting out the offer to Tom Hiddleston (Loki from ‘The Avengers‘). But that’s not the case now.

‘Problem Child’ Being Adapted To Small Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 16th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

problem-child_l2

 

Anyone remember a little movie that came out in 1990 with John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck as hopeful, adoptive parents to the child from hell? ‘Problem Child‘ was the movie that was for sure going to scare any teenager even thinking of pre-marital sex, stop dead in their tracks, repent and go to church for the rest of their lives. Obviously it didn’t exactly work that way. That wasn’t even any of the filmmakers goal when they made the flick, I just threw that in, basically, because I can.

Bond. James Bond Sets Film Date for December 6!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 16th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

daniel-craig-as-james-bond-99127

 

James Bond lovers, get ready for some good news! Not only is the 24th film in the series beginning filming on December 6. Daniel Craig isn’t only under contract for the 24th film, but the 25th film as well. There is a story arc that will connect the two films in a way that has only been done one time before on any of the Bond films. ‘Casino Royale‘ and ‘Quantum Solace‘ are the other two films that had a direct impact on the next one and is basically set up as a sequel to the first film. This film will also NOT be based on any of the Ian Fleming books, nor any of the other novels that different writers have given the literary world.

Hey guys, Jana here,

I seriously hadn’t thought of Angela Lansbury in years. Sure, I’ll make the ‘Murder, She Wrote‘ joke when the opportunity presents itself, but in my mind, she lives in a cabinet in The Beast’s castle and sings with dishes on occasion. Apparently, she’s not sitting in a cabinet. In fact, the actress is winning Tony’s and impressing the hell out of critics and theater-goers alike, with ‘Blithe Spirit‘. If you happen to be so lucky to be in one of the cities that the cast will be touring through, do yourself a favor and check it out!

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

I knew there was some gas left in this engine and it looks like the Wagon Queen Family Truckster Station Wagon is rolling on with another sequel. This is going to be the second film in the family of Vacation movies that John Hughes hasn’t written. He passed away in 2009, making the Christmas Vacation his last film in the series.  The chain consisting of ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation‘, ‘National Lampoon’s European Vacation‘, follow that up with the holiday staple ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘ and finally a last ditch effort to keep the films going with ‘National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation‘. Legendary 80’s filmmaker and writer John Hughes gave us the characters that filled these movies with some of the most dysfunctional and hilarious characters in film history.

Interview with James C. Leary!!

As a huge fan of Buffy, I couldn’t believe it when my friend Michael Champion posted a picture from DCC Fan Appreciation Day with James C. Leary, known for his role as “Clem” on seasons six and seven of Buffy the  Vampire Slayer. I thought to myself, “How does he know THAT guy?” So I did what any good Fangirl would do, I stalked his Facebook page. Turns out his path and mine were about to cross in a seriously awesome way- James works in Austin, at company run my by, none other than my brother. This was my IN, my way to a dialogue. My message to him on FB starts, “So do you know Josef Hall?”

We’ve talked in the past about how Marvel is delving into every facet of entertainment and/or marketing positions they can with their wide-spread character base. I’ve also told you how the next Netflix produced series is going to be Marvel’s first foray with the pay-tv company. Next year, we’ve been told to expect ‘Daredevil‘ to be available for you to put it in queue. We know quite a few of the major players in the drama set in Hell’s Kitchen, but that doesn’t mean we’ve met everyone that’s going to be involved.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

jason-bourne-and-aaron-cross

 

 

Few films can weave a storyline around so many actors and cities and still be a huge draw at the box office, I’m giving you the news about one of them today. The series I’m talking about are the Jason Bourne films, starring Matt Damon. We started with ‘The Bourne Identity‘ in 2002, then ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ in 2004, followed by ‘The Bourne Ultimatum‘ in 2007. In 2012, Damon stood aside and cheered Jeremy Renner on as he made the character of Aaron Cross, uniquely his own, with ‘The Bourne Legacy‘. Renner brings to life another character from the expansive world  that writer Robert Ludlum has created that both characters, and a score of others live in.

Film Review: ‘20,000 Days On Earth’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I’ve been a huge fan of Nick Cave since 1994 when he and The Bad Seeds released their album ‘Let Love In‘. And over the past twenty years, I have purchased his music on vinyl, CD, and digitally. Nick Cave is not only one of the coolest people on the planet and a legendary musician and singer, but he is also a filmmaker who often collaborates with the amazing Warren Ellis.

MTV Picks Up Comedy ‘Ken Jeong Made Me Do It’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Ken-Jeong

So we know that MTV will produce just about any idea they think that a group of 420-friendly teenagers/young adults/morons will subscribe to. Add into the equation a well-known actor like Ken Jeong. His acting repertoire speaks for itself and the same crowd that watches MTV dreck is the a lot of the same demographic that watch Jeong’s movies. Take ‘The Hangover‘ trilogy and ‘Community‘ for example. He’s huge! He’s a great actor, he’s crazy and his presence alone can sometimes be enough to make me laugh. MTV did something right there, at least. By picking up on a comedy pilot titled ‘Ken Jeong Made Me Do It‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Here is one of our infamous Re-Cast segments. We went ahead  and recast the funniest movie ever made, ‘Blazing Saddles‘, which was very ahead of its time and starred Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Slim Pickens, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, Burton Gilliam, Mel Brooks, and Alex Karras. There is no way we can replace any of the amazing actors aboard here, but in this day and age, a remake is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us? Let us know  if you agree or missed anything.

Serenaposter

 

What better way to come back from a mini-vacation than to have some awesome news? Even better than that is to have some awesome news and a brand new trailer! I’m talking about ‘Serena‘. The novel by Ron Rash is one of my absolute favorites. Of course, I didn’t even read the novel until I heard they were taking the book and adapting it to a film as a vehicle for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. I love to read and I love to watch movies. I’m always going to be the person that reads the book first, then pick apart the movie after.

While set to an ethereal melody, the retractable chandelier ascended into the ceiling to create a starry sky.  Showtime.  The sky dimmed, the music came up and then a spotlight shone on an abstract image on a black curtain, which appears as wood chips on fire, in reds, oranges, and browns ablaze.  This perception changed over the journey that is Alchemia.

Film Review: ‘The Drop’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Drop Movie (5)

I love a good mafia drama. There is just something so thrilling and cool about seeing the seedy underbelly of a city and the back door games and scams that the mob plays out. From ‘Goodfellas‘ to ‘The Departed‘, the characters are so well though out and detailed that you can spend over three hours with them and feel like only five minutes have gone by. You could say that a lot of these iconic characters are larger than life itself, which is true, given their past historical accounts of what they did to earn money and gain power. But that is where Michael R. Roskam’s adaptation of Dennis Lehane’s short story, formally called ‘Animal Rescue‘, but now called ‘The Drop‘ differs.

Film Review: ‘Dolphin Tale 2’!!

Janet W., Here…

1396904201000-DOLPHIN-TALE-2-MOV-JY-3602--63352610

Dolphins are not fish…they are mammals.  Playful, passionate, and full of expression, dolphins have ways of letting you know what’s on their mind.  Perfectly timed faces full of water from a blowhole, varying pitches of speech, and solemn silences each have their own purpose and meaning.  Fish cannot easily do that.  Dolphin Tale 2 is a wondrous display of these characteristics.  Picking up where the Dolphin Tale left off, Winter (portrayed by the “real” Winter) still lives in Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  She is the main attraction and the aquarium has grown by leaps and bounds.  For those who have seen the first Dolphin Tale (don’t worry it won’t ruin the movie, if you haven’t), Winter’s first friend was Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble).  Sawyer has learned a lot about marine life during his time with Winter and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  So much so that he is invited to an educational high-seas adventure by a prestigious college.  Such an invitation would be a marine enthusiast’s dream, but it comes with a price.  Three months at sea, far from his friend, Winter, and the area.

Film Review: ‘Believe Me’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Believe_Me_Film_Poster

There’s a fine line between clever satire and biting criticism. Too often, people cross that line inadvertently and thus alienate those they are attempting to speak to. The task of walking that fine line becomes even more difficult when the subject matter is something as popular (and polarizing) as Christianity. Believe Me takes a satirical look at evangelism while simultaneously holding fast to ideals popular among that same target audience.

Film Review: ‘A Five Star Life’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

films-five_star_life-a_five_star_life-5

Every film attempts to capture a moment. Sometimes that moment is expressed in a character, sometimes in the plot, other times in the tone. When a film truly captures that moment effectively, it becomes something more than a film – it becomes timeless. There is a danger to this, however. Should the film successfully capture an uninspiring or unnecessary moment, the magic becomes lost. Unfortunately, A Five Star Life is such a film. Its attempt to capture the depressing life of its main character is so exact that the entire film becomes just as drab.

Film Review: ‘Wetlands’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

wetlands

I didn’t know what quite to expect with David Wnendt’s adaptation of Charlotte Roche’s novel ‘Wetlands‘, but I can assure you that after watching it, I discovered beauty and innocence in the most unlikely of places. Filled with orgasms, the erotic use of vegetables, sexual adventures, sharing used tampons, and even anal operations from the eyes of a female, Wnendt’s artistic and stylish movie, which stars an incredible Carla Juri is not only one of the most risqué films I’ve ever seen, but it’s handled with such care that it’s end result is a beautiful and sweet film. I just wish this movie would have a wider release here in America, but I’m sure once word-of-mouth hits the streets on this, ‘Wetlands’ will become an instant cult classic, and might even push the novel of the same name to the top of the charts again.

evil-dead-movie-poster-small

 

 

Who hasn’t heard the age-old story of a couple of buddies heading out into the woods, evil woods, fumbling around looking for a cabin. Instead of a relaxing break from the mundane, they discover the ‘Necronomicon‘, or basically the ‘Book of the Dead‘. It’s not just a book in a dead language, there’s a taped translation of the text! How lucky could they be, right?! Instead of staying away from the creepy vibes that have to be emanating from this unholy tome, they do what a handful of morons would do and play the thing! Of course, this releases an evil so heinous that one by one the moronic teens are possessed until it’s down to one to defeat the evil dead and survive the night.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

When Roland Emmerich’s name is mentioned, it’s usually attached to a feature film that is underway, has wrapped or being promoted. This isn’t the case. Emmerich is directing and exec producing ‘New Angeles‘, by comic book writer Gregg Hurwitz, for the small screen. This is a new project combining Slingshot Global Media, Emmerich’s Centropolis banner and Keanu Reeves and Stephen Hamel of Company Films. The best-selling novelist and comic book writer, Hurwitz will write the script but also have an exec producer position. “Gregg is an incredibly imaginative writer, and I’m looking forward to bringing his ideas for the show to life,” Emmerich said. “It’s exciting to get the opportunity (to) bring a massive project like this to the small screen with a rapidly changing television space.”

David Bowie Produces New Album!!!

David Bowie is a name that brings an instant image to mind. He’s had about a thousand of them and he continues to change his look, his style and his sound. Most men at 67 would be taking it easy, but Bowie is working on new material and prepping for a new album that will add a few new songs peppered with hits that span the length of his astonishing career. The new songs ‘Sue (Or in a Season of Crime)‘ and ‘Tis a Pity She’s a Whore‘ mark the ending of a decade-long period of silence from the androgynous artist.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

TopGun1

It’s been hoped for, talked about, and wished upon many stars for this to come true. It looks like we are getting a sequel to one of the most amazing films the 1980’s brought us – ‘Top Gun‘. Working up a script for the high-flier is Justin Marks, who is currently in negotiations to work on ‘Top Gun 2‘. Paramount, Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer are backing this highly anticipated sequel. Bruckheimer was with Disney but has moved to Paramount in April and is jumping in with both feet. I’m seriously confused as to what made it take so long for them to get to sequel stage in the first place. An entire population of women, and some men, would have tossed out money hand over fist to get another glimpse at Cruise’s oiled up abs playing volleyball on the beach.

If you call your pad the Batcave and you’re a Batman fan, all is well, if you call it the Batcave because it’s full of real bats, you might need to spend some time in Arkham Asylum.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Pumpkinhead’!!

THE FILM

Would you say “Pumpkinhead‘ three times in the dark in front of a mirror? Of course you would, because you haven’t been a bad girl or boy, have you? I remember seeing ‘Pumpkinhead‘ on VHS back when it came out in the late 80s and fell in love with the horrifying creature known as Pumpkinhead, despite some of the movie’s flaws. Hell, I even owned several of they action figures and toys of Pumpkinhead over the years and every time I come across it in my house, I think, “I better be a good person or Pumkpkinhead will come after me.” Well at least that is what I thought when I was younger. But what most interested me, was the creature itself. And that’s where the late, great legend Stan Winston comes into play.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ is a musical that may be new to theater-goers.  Some may have just heard about it when they saw that Neil Patrick Harris got glammed up to play the lead in a revival of the transgendered hit.  Hedwig began in 1998 in an Off-Broadway rendering written and composed by John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask. The pair then took their work to Off-Broadway with Mitchell playing Hedwig and Trask as one of the band members. Not to confuse those of you that are unfamiliar with Hedwig any further, let me give you a run-down.

‘Friends’ Star All Grown Up And Directing Now!!!

Looks like everyone’s favorite, uptight, clean-freak, cooking ‘Friend(s)‘ is not going to be in front of the camera in her next venture, but Courteney Cox will be making her directorial debut. Starz jumped to the front of the line after seeing ‘Just Before I Go‘ at the Tribeca Film Festival. It’s a dark comedy to be sure, but who wants ‘The Brady Bunch‘ kind of nonsense anymore? Everything needs an edge. Some of my favorite shows are heavy with edge, like eyeliner on a goth chick. ‘Weeds‘, that’s not any type of a normal setup and it’s not all rainbows and unicorn farts. ‘Nurse Jackie‘, who doesn’t love a drug-addicted nurse?

Supergirl Added To Stable Of TV Supes!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Supergirl_Vol_6_14

 

If you think about superhero television shows, or if you’re like me, you think of the dreck that was ‘Lois and Clark‘, ‘Mutant X‘, or ‘The Tick‘?  If it’s not one of those shows, then it’s probably something equally abysmal. With the resurgence of super-powered peeps making such an excellent showing at the box office – because why would they be creating so frakking many of them if they weren’t making some serious coin? So it stands to reason that the small screen is looking for new hit projects in the same vein.

‘Horrible Bosses 2’ Trailer Is Here!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

HORRIBLE-BOSSES-2

 

We all remember ‘Horrible Bosses‘ from a few years ago. It was an absolute laugh factory and was worth it’s weight in gold with some of the characters it brought us. Jamie Foxx was amazing in his role as the group of would-be-hitmen’s advisor. Then how can we forget the role that made me absolutely detest Colin Farrell? I honestly didn’t think it would be possible until I saw that film. It was witty, (mostly) intelligent, and dead-to-rights hilarious. How could there be anything better? A sequel.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

The-Walking-Dead-04-cast

 

We’ve heard the rumors, we’ve hoped for it and it looks like it’s finally here. Of course, I’m talking about a ‘Walking Dead‘ companion series. AMC has finally given the project a greenlight with a pilot written by Robert Kirkman and Dave Erickson. This venture could not be in better hands as Kirkman is ‘Walking Dead’ alumni, and Erickson has been kicking-ass writing for ‘Sons of Anarchy‘.

We don’t know a ton of details at the moment, but the pilot is set in the very same post zombie-apocalypse world as we’ve come to to expect weekly from ‘Walking Dead‘ but we will see all new entirely characters in a different location. Sounds more and more like just an extra time slot to air another ‘Walking Dead‘.

Film Review: ‘Innocence’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

1280x720-9xm

I admit it. I’m a complete sucker for the supernatural horror genre. I love fully engrossing myself in the wake of these ghost and demonic stories. Even though this is the one genre that has me leaving my turtle night light on at night, I can’t help myself but watching every single film I can, relating to the supernatural. So I was pleasantly surprised to see a slow burning horror film from writer-director Hilary Brougher give us a unique take on this particular variety of film. Based off of Jane Mendelsohn’s novel of the same name and with the help of writer Tristine Skyler, Brougher and Skyler deliver some very creepy moments, despite an over-the-top third act in this horror-drama genre film called ‘Innocence‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

8481012_ori

 

In the world of film making, it’s fairly easy to blend into the crowd as someone that creates semi-commercially acceptable fare staying under budget and netting enough income for a studio to ask you to do it all over again. Then there are the niche directors that some can consider as controversial in their creation of genre films and fans either love them or hate them. Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, Peter Jackson and Lars von Trier are all among the type I’d quantify as niche directors.

If the topic came up of two particular California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers, there has to be one name that comes to mind, right? ‘CHiPs‘ is indeed what we’re talking about in this article. When you look at all the sitcoms from earlier decades and the films that were made from them, cheese was the main ingredient. Be it cheddar, provolone or gouda, they were cheesy. Thankfully the filmmakers behind this remake is purposely driving the project in a very different direction.

The duo are collaborating on ‘YouTube Space House of Horrors: A Legendary Halloween’.

Where you get fall, you get Halloween.

Hey guys, Jana here,

If you haven’t watched ‘Hemlock Grove‘, yet, you’re missing out…or you just don’t have Netflix, either way, you’re missing out!  This series grips you from the first scene and it’s not let up in the two seasons it’s been exclusively on Netflix. In an unsurprising turn, the VOD company has renewed the original series for a 10-episode third season that’s heading out way in 2015.

The twice Emmy nominated thriller has some pretty decent star-power filling out its ranks. Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Dougray Scott are all featured. Janssen, best known from her days as Jean Grey in the original ‘X-Men‘ franchise, but has come into her own, shall we say, inner-bitch. Her characters are always underhanded, evil or they just want to eat children as in the case of ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters‘ Oh! Don’t forget her absolute lack of concern for her daughter in ‘Taken‘. I adore Liam Neeson, but that movie-wife wanted to carry the testicles of every man she hooked up with in her perfect designer bag.

Hey fanboys and girls, Jana here,

 

 

GOTHAM_CAROUSEL_DESKTOP_1400x386-carousel-1400x386

 

 

Everyone remember the hype surrounding the new prequel series ‘Gotham‘? We’ve been inundated with teasers, internet ads, and just in general talking about how awesome, or un-awesome (is that a word?) it’s going to be. I want to be hopeful, because I’m a huge fan of the bat. Love the world of Gotham City and it’s dark, iniquitous, sullen tones. I’ve always loved the Tim Burton version of the Batman films, don’t get me wrong, Nolan’s flicks were excellent in that they gave me the action I crave. But I like how the first set of movies make him a real character and not either just a 40-pack a day smoker in a cowl, or an asshole.

John Stamos Thrusting Back To TV In Four Projects!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 2nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

john stamos

 

 

John Stamos may be best known for his gig on ‘Full House‘ as Uncle Jesse, but it’s unfair to characterize his acting range by constantly putting him in that box. He’s still just as swoon-worthy as he was in the 80’s which has to help his bankability when he’s auditioning for a new role.

As of now, he’s got a couple of high-profile projects in the works. He’s currently the frontrunner as the male lead of ABC’s midseason drama series, ‘Members Only‘. The actor born with the last name Stamotopoulos (Thank God he shortened that one!) is looking to topline and executive produce the unnamed comedy series in the works, also with ABC Studios and will be working with comedy producer Dan Fogelman (‘The Neighbors‘).  Not to mention the most highly anticipated return to television of all – ‘Full House‘, which is in a reboot phase at Warner Bros. TV.

If you’re a fan of Maroon 5, ‘The Voice‘, or just Adam Levine, in general, you’re going to want to pay attention to this announcement! Levine has proven time and time again that he is much more than just a rocker with a gorgeous face. He’s provided loads of guidance through his years working with amateurs to perfect and capitalize on their greatest strengths as vocalists. Now he’s going in a different direction than most of us would consider for him.

Russell Crowe-Ryan Gosling Pic Secures Release Date!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 2nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Warner Bros and Shane Black have teamed up again, this time for a detective thriller starring the ever-so-gorgeous Russell Crowe and the guy most women swoon for, Ryan Gosling. Warners have taken the date of June 17, 2016 as their release date for ‘The Nice Guys. In another fantastic turn of events for the film besides pairing the two co-stars up is that Shane Black co-wrote the script. Black and Warner Bros is not the only reunion taking place in this film, Joel Silver is coming on board as a producer like he was with Black’s ‘Lethal Weapon‘. The film was officially picked up in July and plans to start production are this fall.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

David-Berkowitz-640x360

 

 

Few things entertain me more than a good serial killer book/movie/TV show. I know, it’s a strange interest to have, but this is one of the milder interests of mine. We’ve heard about the Charles Manson slayings going into production for a series with Rob Zombie involved, this time it’s another killer that is getting the mini-series treatment.  David Berkowitz, Son of Sam, the .44 Caliber Killer – whatever you want to call him, he’s the next topic for a mini treatment.
