Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Hillary Thomas’ Top 5 Films and Best TV Shows of 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

Best2015_660

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say? James Wallace knows that I like (“Sixteen Candles”, “Aliens”, “Big Trouble In Little China”, “True Grit”, and “Conan” just to name a few), but I did see a “Few Good Movies.”

Tupac Shakur Biopic Has New Lead and Director!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 28th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

tupac1

We’ve known for a while that there has been a Tupac Shakur biopic in progress, but there haven’t been a lot of results that have been very newsworthy, until now. Morgan Creek has held the music rights for the project and those rights are slowly reaching their deadline which has now made some big movements. If production wasn’t underway by the end of 2015 the music rights to Shakur’s tunes were to revert to his mother.

Ever since I heard the news that Benedict Cumberbatch was cast in the titular role for ‘Doctor Strange‘, I didn’t really have any trouble picturing him in the robes of the great Strange and now, none of us have to wonder or guess how it will look as we have pictures, now! Who says Christmas comes only one time a year?!

Film Review: ‘Concussion’!!

by Janet White on Dec 25th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Concussion - Omalu

 

Football, especially in Texas, is king and they are not alone in this mindset.  In Concussion, Pittsburgh, PA’s love for the game (as well as the rest of the country’s) and the NFL’s reign over it endangered Dr. Bennet Omalu’s (Will Smith) life.  Against all odds, Dr. Omalu, a forensic pathologist discovered and worked to educate the masses of the mental dangers of playing the beloved sport.  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and its related diseases, named by Dr. Omalu since he discovered the disease, was and possibly still is affecting football players from kids to professionals.  Dr. Omalu is from Nigeria and holds America in high esteem, but his reverence is about to be tested.

‘Deadpool’ Delivers Two New Trailers for the Holidays!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 25th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

deadpool1-gallery-image

This holiday season, ‘Deadpool‘ has been giving us a ton of promo videos for his new movie and this new brand new trailer. Or shall I say, trailers (plural). These ‘Deadpool‘ trailers show us a good deal of new footage with better glimpses of Colossus and other characters. This will be very different for Marvel and I just know it will do well, despite this being a rated ‘R’ movie. Enjoy the holiday and watch these two ‘Deadpool‘ trailers. One is the Green Band trailer and the other is the NSFW Red Band trailer with tons of fun moments.

Film Review: ‘The Big Short’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Christian-Bale-The-Big-Short-Movie-Still-800x533

We all remember the horrible times from 2007-2010 with all that went on with the housing crises and stock market crash. Tons of people lost their homes, went broke, lost their jobs, and even committed suicide. This was all due to the major banks and loan officers, giving people bad loans no matter what their income situation was. After a little while, everyone started to default on their home loans and all of the banks failed, which forced the hardworking middle class people to bail them out with our own money.

Film Review: ‘Son of Saul’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

SonofSaulCannes

I’ve become quite a connoisseur of holocaust films over the years. Being Jewish has connected me in a deeper way than most people to these types of films, as I had family survive and killed during that immensely tragic time. From films like ‘The Sorrow and the Pity‘ to ‘Schindler’s List‘ to even ‘Inglorious Basterds‘ and the ten hour documentary ‘Shoah‘, I’ve seen a ton of films that have dealt with the holocaust on all levels. This particular film however, does something new, which I’ve never seen before. It’s called ‘Son of Saul‘ and is just as rough, depressing, and sad as you might come to expect from a holocaust movie.

Film Review: ‘Carol’!!

by Janet White on Dec 24th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

CAROL

 

Carol opens with the sounds of screeching train tracks during the title slides. Fade in straight to a close-up of a street vent while an instrumental score is played. The images that follow (cars, people walking on streets, etc.) are warm with a soft glow, just what was needed to put the audience into 1950s New York. The world of The Price of Salt, the novel by Patricia Highsmith of which Carol is based.  Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

share_1200x627

I can’t believe it’s finally here. Ten years since the last ‘Star Wars‘ movie, which was ‘Episode III‘ by George Lucas. In the decade that followed, we all thought we would never see another ‘Star Wars‘ feature film again, since Lucas himself destroyed and ruined the prequel trilogy and continued to alter the original trilogy to dried up mess of movies that are almost unrecognizable. Fortunately for every ‘Star Wars‘ fan in the world, he sold his production company that included the rights to ‘Star Wars‘ to Disney for a modest amount of $4 billion.

Fernando’s ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2015

Fernando M., Here…

starwarshorizontal

It’s incredibly easy to pick apart a movie and find its flaws.  As you can tell from many of my reviews, I am no stranger to doing this to movies.  I could spend hours talking about what JJ Abrams missed in the new Star Wars movie, where he diverged from cannon, where he asked us to suspend disbelief way too much, where he copied too much from the original trilogy, where he didn’t copy enough from the original trilogy.  But no matter how much you nit pick, THIS IS A FINE FILM AND A WELCOME ADDITION TO THE STAR WARS UNIVERSE!
