Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world. Schools have both required and banned the reading for reasons of profanity and its message. Rebel in the Rye details Salinger’s (Nicholas Hoult) life and progression as a writer. From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

The Ryan Gosling Jacket Investigation!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 13th, 2017

Written By: Dan Moran….

There have been tweets and style articles written about Ryan Gosling’s jackets over the past year, but after seeing Blade Runner 2049 last night, are we sure he’s ever read a script? Would it really be so ridiculous to assume that almost every role that Ryan Gosling has ever played was based on his agent just laying two jackets out and Ryan deciding which one was better? More importantly, is Ryan Gosling even a good actor? Are we sure his jackets aren’t giving him this power?

An investigation has been opened.

Film Review: ‘Mark Felt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2017

Written By: Beka Perlstein

As I watched Mark Felt: The Man Who Brought Down the White House, I couldn’t help but feel like I was watching a movie about modern day politics. I wasn’t around during the Nixon years, so the story itself was intriguing to me, but as the film played I just became increasingly frustrated that history was seemingly repeating itself. Mark Felt was as they said, “the G-Man’s G Man.” He worked for the FBI for 31 years and it’s made clear at the outset of the film that under Hoover, he was the guy that held the key to Pandora’s Box. Felt knew when to talk, when to keep his mouth shut, when to bark and when to bite. Everyone in Washington knew not to cross him for fear of their secrets leaking. But that wasn’t Mark Felt. He. Did. Not. Leak.

Film Review: ‘Happy Death Day’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2017

Written By: Fernando Martinez

Ok, let me start off by saying that “Happy Death Day” is not a great movie., although there are a lot of great things about it.  However, given the genre, I had a fantastic time watching it.  Although it feels more like an extended episode of whatever show is on the CW now, this horror/drama/comedy packs its fair share of good fun.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

‘Phish: A Live One’ is Getting the LP Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

Phish’s first live album called ‘A Live One‘ was released back in 1995, which means this is 22 years old and makes me wish I was still that young again when I first heard this album. It was released on CD and cassette back in 1995, which was a time when vinyl wasn’t really being produced. The album was recorded mostly through Phish’s 1994 tour and is regarded a big fan favorite.

The New ‘Justice League’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

 

 

 

A new ‘Justice League‘ trailer is here and shows a ton more footage. It’s just too bad that it isn’t all that great and once again, there is no Superman. Well, Supes does show up, but only in a dream walking through his home farm in Smallville like Russell Crowe meandering through the tall grass in ‘Gladiator‘, which is funny, because Crowe is Supes’ father. Other than that, Superman is not in the trailer, which furthers the stupidity of DC in trying to surprise us with a Superman appearance in ‘Justice League‘.

Short Film Review: ‘Highway’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 5th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Next, we have ‘Highway,’ another foreign entry by English Director Vanessa Gazy. As the vast scene of an open mountain highway reveals itself, there’s a mystery behind this nameless teenage hitchhiker (Odessa Young), who is aimlessly roaming the road and listening to her vintage walkman radio. A poppy tune can be heard playing, but quickly the song fades and a newscast signal takes over as she tries to adjust the station. Losing the battle, the man’s voice continues, and confusion quickly takes over while she gazes up to the clear sky.

Step aside, Los Angeles. Austin is quickly becoming the new city of stars.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

 

It’s that time of the year again, where we induct musicians and singers into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Over the past few years, the term Rock & Roll is used loosely, because according to this list, some of these artists are not Rock & Roll at all. Still, this is the voting period and you can vote on who deserves to be inducted, which will air on HBO.

Netflix is Raising Prices Again!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Netflix has a spending problem and we the customers are paying for it. #Bullshit The price of the most popular plan, which is the streaming plan that is normally $9.99. Prices are going up 10%, which is only a dollar a month, making it $10.99 now. I’d be okay with this, but nothing is happening to warrant this other than that the shit-heads at Netflix are selling the farm for more content.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The most popular and well-known man in the world was and maybe still is Michael Jackson. He had fans all over the world and inspired not only the common folk, but many great musicians over the past 30 years years. Michael Jackson won tons of awards for his music, produced and created some of the best songs ever made, delivered the best music videos, and started a big charity called Heal the World. His life was in the tabloids constantly with hideous scum people making up stories that forced him to be a recluse for most of his life. He was just a man who became a father to three kids and when he was pushing 50 years old, he was more or less forced to perform 50 concerts as a way to make ends meet and provide for his family. Much has been said over the many years about Michael Jackson.

These are not two lightweight authors that had to team up to get a book published, but rather, two literary giants that chose to bless us with their combined greatness.

Movie Quotes

Aristotle:
The East has a way of swallowing men and their dreams, but still to think it's these myths that lead us toward the greatest glory... Why is it wrong to act on them? I can only warn you, not teach you. Beware of what you dream - for the gods have a way of punishing such pride.
