Film Review: ‘American Made’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Globally, it is the second most popular and in the ’80’s, it was king. And Director Doug Liman wants you to know that one American is partly responsible for not only the narcotic’s rise in popularity, but also for fueling one of the largest cartels in global history. In the new action biopic, ‘American Made‘, Tom Cruise flies high and returns to familiar aviation territory as Barry Seal, a TSA pilot turned drug smuggler. This role really puts Tom back into his adventurous element and is easily one of his best performances in recent memory. He proves that his charm and charisma isn’t lost, and personal judgements aside, sometimes it takes crazy to play crazy.

Film Review: ‘The Mountain Between Us’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2017

Rebecca S., here….

In modern terms, a unicorn is a sought after item of idea that you can never have; a fabled creature and impossible to capture. The perfect date night movie is the unicorn of our times. Speaking in stereotypes, men are said to want comedy, death defying action-adventure, and it would be great if someone got shot or maimed. Women are said to want lighthearted flirting, sincere laughter and a beautiful backdrop in which a woman is swept off of her feet by a gorgeous man. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Mountain Between Us. The answer to your date night woes. A unicorn.

Coming to America 2 is Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

It looks like it’s official. ‘Coming to America 2‘ is finally happening. I’m on the fence about this at this moment in time, because the original film that was directed by John Landis and starred Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, and James Earl Jones, amongst a ton of other great actors is one of the funniest films ever made with a ton of heart. Doing a sequel so many years later – – I have my doubts, since nobody from the original film has signed on yet.

Hey guys, Jana here, 

Scream Factory presents ‘Misery‘ in a 2-disc collector’s edition Blu-ray set that will arrive November 28, 2017. From the chilling mind of Stephen King, ‘Misery‘ is based on his novel of the same name. If you’ve read the story, you wince at the thought of Annie Wilkes with an axe, but if you’ve watched the movie, you’ve cringed when you think of  Kathy Bates with a sledgehammer. A role that will lead Bates to accept an Academy Award for her off-center portrayal of the crazed #1 fan, Annie Wilkes.

Film Review: ‘Cult of Chucky’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

One of the things I look forward to in life are more Chucky movies. I don’t know why, but that seems to have been the case since Chucky terrorized all of us back in 1988 with ‘Child’s Play‘. There’s just something fun and horrifying about the universe of Chucky that always had me clamoring for more films. ‘Child’s Play 2‘ and ‘Child’s Play 3‘ furthered the story along while playing to the same silly-horror tropes of each previous film. Still, they were fun and entertaining.

Film Review: ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Yorgos Lanthimos will hopefully be a household name in the coming years. The filmmaker just has an uncanny knack for the uncomfortable and weird while telling very compelling and twisted stories that will no doubt entertain us and make us think about it long after viewing his work. Coming off of films like ‘The Lobster‘ and ‘Dogtooth‘, the Greek filmmaker unleashes his best film to date with ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘, which could be Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’s‘ sibling in both style and tone.

Blu-ray Review: The Big Sick!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Film portion is written by Beka Perlstein:

If The Big Sick isn’t on your must see movie list, do yourself a favor and rewrite the list. This film is the real life love story of how actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) met his girlfriend and (spoiler alert) now wife, Emily Gordon. It’s not another Fault in Our Stars or Me Before You, it’s so much more than a love sick story. Behind the romantic comedy model is a story about a Pakistani immigrant who is struggling with identity, relationships, family, career and religion. To put it simply- he’s just trying to figure out this thing we call life.

Film Review: Dan Dream!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

From the creative duo that brought us ‘Klovn’ and ‘Klown‘, comes their next twisted comedy with a ton of heart called ‘Dan Dream‘, that tells the true life story of the world’s first electric car. If you’ve ever had the privilege to watch ‘Klown‘, then you know about the off-beat humor of the Danish team Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam have owned since they stepped into the film world. With their silly bodily humor, they still manage to tell engaging and heart felt stories. Dan Dream is no different and has shades of ‘Little Miss Sunshine‘ throughout. Casper and Frank, who also star in the film, have perfectly captured this small moment in history with all its glory and warts in their unique brand of of comedy that includes butts and poop.

Film Review: ‘Battle of the Sexes’!!

by Janet White on Sep 22nd, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The year was 1972; Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) had just won the US Open. Thrust into the mainstream limelight, emerged into the Women’s Lib movement, and treated as the lesser sex by the world, King breaks free from the bonds of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association. The USNLTA paid the female players considerably less than the male players for illogical reasons like men are the big ticket sellers; men need the money for their families, etc. With her trusted friend and manager, Gladys Heldman (Sarah Silverman), along with her and other female tennis players the face of tennis was forever changed.

Film Review: ‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2017

Hello all, Rebecca here with my take on the newest installment from the Lego film franchise.

The Lego Ninjago Movie reminds me a lot of a tossed salad you would buy at the grocery store, meaning lots of classic flavors that you already love, but always having that one inclusion that tastes funny (I’m looking at you radicchio). Ninjago has the same beautiful CGI/stop motion look from Animal Logic that The Lego Movie and the Lego Batman Movie have, and the same quirkiness, but it lacks the heart of its predecessors.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Matthew Vaughn is back in the director’s chair with ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘, the sequel to the hit 2015 action-comedy film that made over $414 million. The ‘Kingsman’ story line was originally written in comic book form from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and follows a super secret British spy service that protects the world from various threats. It’s like James Bond, but more fun, more violent, and with more laughs. With sequels, especially in the action world, the words “bigger, better, faster” are usually used everyday on set, in an attempt to out-do the previous movie. That can mostly be said for this sequel too, but with The Golden Circle – – it all works.

4K UHD Review: Wonder Woman!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Warner Bros./DC Comics Cinematic Universe has been trying to get off its feet for a while now with no success, besides some decent box office money. However, most people would tell you that the new DC Comics‘ films are just not up to par with their rivals over at Marvel for many reasons. These people would be right. Perhaps one of the best moments of Batman v Superman was in fact Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It was just a shame she only had a few minutes of screen time in that film. The rest was mostly trash. Luckily, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to finally make a Wonder Woman movie, which is the first superhero film to feature a female superhero as its main protagonist, as well with a female director with Patty Jenkins. The result is satisfying, making Wonder Woman a damn good film with a few flaws.

Theatre Review: ‘Fun Home’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Fun Home‘ won Best Musical at the Tony awards in 2015 and is now on the traveling road circuit across America. With a great message, good performances, and a couple of good songs, ‘Fun Home‘ is enjoyable, sweet, and tragic, but maybe not the big award winner it was a couple of years ago. In fact, I think this story would’ve been better told in a more intimate setting, and not the big amazing theatres it’s been playing at. With a very simple set and a very intimate story, I never really felt a sense of connection. ‘Fun Home‘ is a coming-of-age story of a woman who comes out as a lesbian and her gay father who struggles with his current family and coming out of the closet.

Film Review: ‘American Assassin’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 15th, 2017

Dan M. here…

You can’t make an action movie like this in 2017 and expect anyone to be impressed with it. Not when studios crank out Bourne, Bond, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, The Raid, etc. Those are movies that execute things at such a high level with passable stories that at least allow you to buy into the character. Hell, even Jack Reacher had some self-awareness to it that made the shrug-worthy, ridiculous, sequel mildly enjoyable. American Assassin is an all-around pretty bad movie but it does have a few bright spots. It honestly felt like the writers watched a Bourne movie, then got high, and played 3 hours of Call of Duty on easy difficulty before putting pen to paper.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

The Mummy (1999) is by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  Written and directed by Stephen Sommers, it works as an homage to classic monster movies, great adventures, and old school “hero of the day” golden age of cinema films. Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and what can only be described as a truly breakout performance by Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy Himself, Imhotep!

Film Review: mother!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s been proven over the last two decades that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky makes movies his own way. He doesn’t bow down to Hollywood execs and never makes movies for the masses. Most people would fail with this tactic, but with Aronofsky, he wins awards and is met with critical acclaim. With films like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler (I won’t mention Noah) – you can tell that Aronofsky doesn’t make tightly wrapped, happy movies with pretty little bows on them. I commend him for this, because he’s doing something that nobody else is doing.

Turns out, the studio execs couldn’t handle having a big creative force behind Star Wars. The search was on for another director. Were they gonna go with another indie filmmaker with good credentials or play it safe like they did when they replaced Miller and Lord with the capable Ron Howard?

Film Review: IT!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is back in Derry, Maine after a long hiatus and troubled production. Despite the production issues, this modern version of Stephen King’s IT is a success in many ways, but has a few tiny flaws. Let me just say that if you have a phobia or are scared of clowns in any way, this film will be quite frightening  for you. Bill Skarsgard fills the shoes of a 1993 Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown and does a very good job. It’s not the same playful Pennywise from the 90s TV movie though. His outfit is different and Pennywise this time around seems more sinister and attacks his victims faster and more violently as we see in that first opening scene with little Georgie looking for his paper boat that went into the sewer.

Film Review: Home Again!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Since their resurrection in the late 20th century, romantic comedies began digging their heels into the film industry and eventually gained permanent footing with audiences. By definition, rom-coms have amusing and sprightly plot-lines, circling around the ideal that true love can overcome any hitch, and women are simply helpless without their male counterparts. However, the genre has started morphing into something different lately; women are taking the leading role as well as the director’s chair. Despite all appearances, ‘Home Again’ announces that romance doesn’t have to take center stage, and women can be multi-dimensional, driven and even find happiness despite their losses in love.

Star Wars Episode IX does NOT have a director anymore!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Wait, what? This shit again? Seriously, those Star Wars execs, including Kathleen Kennedy need to get their shit together, because this is the 2nd time in a couple of months this has happened. Back in June, Chris Miller and Phil Lord were let go from the Han Solo spin-off movie mid-way through the shoot for bullshit reasons. They brought on the capable, yet safe director of Ron Howard to finish the job. At least Episode IX wasn’t in full on production yet, but we did know that Colin Trevorrow was set to direct after his huge success on Jurassic World. That is not the case anymore. Trevorrow is out of the director’s seat, leaving Disney and Lucas Film to  find another filmmaker.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Coming out of the Venice Film Festival, filmmaker John Landis has released a 3D version of Michael Jackson’s legendary music video/short film THRILLER. I can’t even right now. I’m so torn on this news. On one hand, this is the best announcement ever. On the other hand, it’s an announcement in 3D, which really doesn’t make anything better or brighter other than a Jackass sequel. What we’re hearing is that this 3D version of Thriller is just a pre-cursor of at least two other big announcements regarding the late King of Pop in the coming weeks.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Narcos’ Season 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2017

THE SERIES


There are a ton of drug trafficking shows and movies out there in the cinema universe, that sometimes it can be difficult to tall one from the other. ‘Narcos‘ stands on its own though, with very realistic details brought to life and keen sense to intimate stories that are put on screen. The performances are all award-worthy in this very violent tv show that allows you to sympathize and connect to both sides of this drug war. It’s something that not all creative shows can do well, but ‘Narcos‘ succeeds on all levels.

Blu-ray Review: ‘First Kill’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 3rd, 2017

THE FILM


In addition to Bruce Willis starring in a ton of mega-budget action films over the years, Willis has also been starring in direct-to-video movies that many of you have never heard of. Three of these films have been directed by a guy named Steven C. Miller, who is in line to direct the sequel to Sylvester Stallone’s Escape Plan. Anywho, this film is called ‘First Kill‘ and pits Bruce Willis as the bad guy here, which is something we don’t often see play out in other films. If that comes as spoiler to you, don’t let it, because Miller has a difficult time in playing the con game with his audience.
