‘Gotham City Sirens’ Will Rock Theaters Soon!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

GCS Cv1 var

Margot Robbie and director David Ayer are back together, the last time this happened, the world received ‘Suicide Squad‘. The next venture is even more of a daunting task, and that is ‘Gotham City Sirens‘. I’ll assume that not everyone eats, sleeps and breathes DC comics and I’ll slow it down. DC is the comic book world I prefer to live in, I like dark, deep, broody, melancholy atmospheres, and I’m not entirely certain the sun ever hits the center of Gotham City, but I’m ok with that. Marvel is too bright and flashy and, just not me.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

We’ve known for a while now that Hollywood was trying to remake ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘. We’ve seen various iterations on the cult icon film from ‘Glee‘ to ‘The Simpsons‘, and even recently, MTV and Fox is trying to put their spin on the classic musical. Fox’s version is gaining steam though as Laverne Cox (‘Orange is the New Black) has just been cast as Frank-N-Furter, which was originally played by Tim Curry in the original film and stage play.

WWE: If you Smell What ‘The Rock’ is Cookin’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-rock1

Good news, to the millions….and MILLIONS of Rock fans. The Rock has been busy as of lately. Well, I think he’s always busy, as he has about a dozen movies coming out, his HBO show, and too many to count upcoming projects, including a remake of ‘Big Trouble in Little China‘. We’re still waiting on him to play a live-action Johnny Bravo, but it looks like WWE has moved The Rock from their alumni website to their active roster.

Okay, let me get this straight. Out of all the remakes Hollywood wants to do, why are we tackling ‘Big Trouble in Little China‘? I really hope this is a mere rumor, but The Wrap is reporting it, and it seems some industry professionals are confirming this. But yes, 20th Century Fox wants to remake the iconic 80s film that starred Kurt Russell and was directed by John Carpenter.

In the land of remakes, there is one bright spot that hasn’t been touched, yet. Yet is the key word in that sentence. The iconic film ‘The Crow‘, Brandon Lee cemented his popularity with his portrayal of Eric Draven, the tragic hero of a dark film that, at it’s heart, is a vigilante tale. Director Corin Hardy (‘The Hallow‘) is planning to remake the film, which has a loyal cult following, and he has already cast his Eric.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

You would think that by the look of ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘, the sequel to the 2006 hit film ’300′, director Zack Snyder had returned to make this film. Well, you’d be wrong as Noam Murro directed this, making this film his first feature film. But don’t worry, Snyder seemed to have a heavy hand and watchful eye over this film, as his handprints are all over this from his screenplay to the camerawork. It’s all here again in this prequel, side story, and sequel that features a lot of the same characters from the original. ’300′ cost $65 million to make back in 2006 and was largely made in front of a green screen. That film grossed over $457 million dollars.

Here is our 32nd episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘, and we are back from a two week hiatus from covering the Dallas Film Festival.  We recorded this 32nd podcast on Easter Sunday morning in Dallas, TX, and were missing a couple of regulars. However, we were joined by Susan Kamyab of ‘This Chix Flix‘ and ‘Irving Community Television‘ this weekend and she made an excellent addition to the podcast. And since we are back from our small break, what better way to celebrate than with one of our infamous ReCast segments. We went ahead and did it. We ReCast ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘, which is one of the best films of all time. There is no way we can replace any of the actors aboard here, but we know that MTV wants to remake it and in this day and age, it is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role?

Yes folks, that is correct.  The Rock will be starring in a teddy bear film, but not the sequel to the Seth MacFarlane vehicle ‘Ted‘. This one is different.  And you will be surprised on where the idea came from.  So we all have heard famous stories on how some movies were written, some were from the idea of a child and some were written on a cocktail napkin while sitting at a bar.  But this time, the story for this film was based on an image.  An image made popular by the popular websites Imgur and Reddit.  I couldn’t make this up if I tried.

Bryan Reviews ‘Rock Of Ages’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Rock Of Ages’ is an 80’s Rock n’ Roll orgy turned up to eleven.  I have no doubt that 80’s rock music fans will eat this up and rock themselves out in the theater.  This musical is based on Chris D’ Arienzo’s Broadway play and has been adapted to the big screen in a major and hilarious way with an allstar cast.  Plus they got Adam Shankman (they guy who directed the remake of ‘Hairspray’) to direct this 80’s rock opus.  ‘Rock Of Ages’ is over-the-top ridiculous, campy, silly, but one hell of a good time.  You’ll leave the theater singing your favorite Twisted Sister song and wanting to change your hair into a mullet.

On a cool and slightly humid evening at Dallas’ historic Kessler Theatre in North Oak Cliff, music fans of all types crammed into the intimate venue like sardines to see Wanda Jackson, the proclaimed ‘Queen of Rockabilly’ give it all she literally had.

The show, which was expected to begin with her set around 9:00pm, didn’t start until well after 10:30pm, due to a recent case of mild laryngitis the legendary singer had  been battling. Most fans were certainly eager for the show to begin, however the crowd appeared to be quite patient and understanding with Jackson as she made her way through her setlist, something I haven’t seen much in Dallas concert-going crowds these last few years.

Rock n Roll Hall of Fame nominees are…..

Ladies and Gents, your 2011 Rock n Roll Hall of Fame nominees are first-timers Tom Waits, Bon Jovi, Alice Cooper, Donovan, and Neil Diamond (Jewish Elvis), along with previously snubbed artists Beastie Boys, LL Cool J, J. Geils Band, Donna Summer, Chic, Dr. John, Laura Nyro, Joe Tex, Darlene Love, and Chuck Willis. (Via Rolling Stone) In order to be eligible, an artist must have put out his or her first recording in 1985 or before. And since Tom Waits put out his debut single in 1973, that means it took him 12 years to be nominated. Tom Waits is my favorite musician…. well Tom and Michael Jackson.


The lucky few who get enough votes from industry insiders to make it into the Hall this year will be announced in December. The induction ceremony is set to take place March 14 in New York City.

AMC has proven itself as an original programming giant with shows ‘Breaking Bad‘, ‘Mad Men‘ and ‘The Walking Dead‘. For all their success and accolades, the network still seems a little like a one trick pony. Where ‘Nurse Jackie‘, ‘Weeds‘, ‘United States of Tara‘ and ‘Californication‘ have some serious moments, they’re very much in the comedy range. AMC has yet to produce an original laugher.

Fox has hit the jackpot when it comes to casting this season. British writer-actor Nick Frost has officially signed on to co-star in ‘Sober Companion‘ with Justin Long. Frost is an extremely bankable commodity that automatically ups the production value of a project. He is normally seen co-starring with best friend and frequent collaborator Simon Pegg. The pair have given us The Cornetto Trilogy comprised of ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The World’s End‘. They also starred together in ‘Paul‘ which the pair wrote together.

Judd Apatow

 

Judd Apatow is developing ‘Trainwreck‘. No, I’m not saying I think the film will be a trainwreck.  Apatow has found his niche in the film world much in the same way Quentin Tarantino and Kevin Smith have their cemented fans. A few of the trademarks for an Apatow film are finding the same 10-12 actors appearing in almost each one, and while they are brilliant comedies, they’re realistic and a bit longer than the average 90 minute comedy. So far the only thing that’s been released about ‘Trainwreck‘, is that he’s directing and we’re beginning to see the cast fill out.

The 65th annual Emmy nominations were announced early this morning, and some well deserved shows were mentioned. Notably, ‘House of Cards‘ and ‘Arrested Development‘ were nominated, making Netflix a heavy hand this year at the awards. ‘Mad Men’, ‘Breaking Bad’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Homeland’ were also nominated. Below is the partial list of nominations. Let us know if you think your favorite show was snubbed this year.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

2012 Emmy Award Winners!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Below is the list of the winners for the 2012 Prime-Time Emmy Award Winners.  I don’t  see how ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Two and Half Men’ win anything.  They shouldn’t win any kind of award when they go up against shows like ‘Mad Men’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Breaking Bad’.  The Emmy judges need to be fired and never allowed to pick winners ever again.  However, much congratulations to ‘Homeland’, ‘Downton Abbey’, Aaron Paul, ‘Veep’, and ‘American Horror Story’

Guess Which Adult Swim Series Won An Emmy?!?!?

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

It’s true.  Very true.  ‘Children’s Hospital’ won an Emmy this weekend.  The beloved genius hysterically funny tv series on Cartoon Network under the Adult Swim lineup won in the “Outstanding Special Class: Short Format Live Action Entertainment Programs” category.  Basically, they won Best Series of their format.  And that is kick ass.

Fox to Take On Hannibal! …Burress. From Jonah Hill!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 13th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

(Warning: You’re not getting through this article without cannibal jokes.)

Fox has bought Jonah Hill’s sitcom, starring stand-up comedian Hannibal Burress, with a blind script commitment plus penalty. The format – single- or multi-camera – has not yet been determined, but the show will bring Burress’ performing chops to television for the first time. Burress has written episodes of both Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock (and there have been no strange disappearances from either) as well as stood up for Comedy Central and David Letterman, but has not yet had his own shtick in a sitcom.

Today was Apple’s WWDC 2011 conference and convention.  Steve Jobs took to the stage at noon central time and talked about three new products from Apple.  All of which were software.  No new hardware was mentioned today at the conference.  But what was talked about and unveiled was the new OSX Lion which is the new operating system for Apple computers.  The previous version was Snow Leopard.  Also the new iOS5 which is basically the new operating system for Apple’s mobile devices.  And the much anticipated iCloud program which basically will replace Apple’s less than thrilling Mobile-Me service.

One of the most heart-warming movies of the year, ‘Wonder‘ is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and Digital HD very soon. In fact, you’ll be able to watch the film digitally as soon as January 30th. Then on February 13th, you’ll be able to purchase the 4K UHD and Blu-ray Discs. Trust me, you’re going to want to his film in your collection. It’s that good. The 4K UHD Dis will feature Dolby Vision and HDR10 support, which is excellent. Bonus features include Audio Commentary, and quite a few behind the scenes featurettes on the making of the movie.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

Film Review: ‘Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle’!!

by Janet White on Dec 21st, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

Oh, we got fun…and the game! Coaxing and soaring over the tails of its predecessor, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will rock your world. In 1995, Jumanji, centered on a board game, turned a home and a city inside out with adventure stampeding over the bounds of the silver screen. Picking up from where the first film left off, the board game is found on a beach. Jumanji ensnares new victims, so let the ride begin. Read the rest of this entry »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2017

THE FILM


‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 is  the best season yet of one of the best television series ever made. In this season, all that we have been waiting for is coming to fruition, since this is basically the 1st part of the last season of the show on HBO. All of the big battles are coming together, characters are finally in the same room now, and those dragons are finally able to do what they were meant to do. It’s so much fun to watch.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Woodshock’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2017

THE FILM


Kirsten Dunst is back at it again in ‘Woodshock‘, which is a hypnotic and murderous thriller with a unique visual style from Kate and Laura Mulleavy. Who are the Mulleavy sisters? Well they are fashion designers who made this film, which of course looks amazing from start to finish, but might lack some story and character development. Still, it’s an interesting watch and one that you might be talking about when you decide to take part in smoking a joint with your friends next time.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

4K UHD Review: Westworld Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE SERIES


HBO’s new flagship show ‘Westworld‘ entered with a big bang in its first season. Since ‘Game of Thrones‘ is ending soon, HBO was ahead of the game and needed its new sci-fi action original show and ‘Westworld‘ was its name. That rhymed a little bit. Based on Michael Crichton’s story and film from 1973 of the same name, ‘Westworld‘ takes a theme park (much like Disneyland) to the next level. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you entered the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ ride at Disneyland.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

Wrestlemania 34 is less than 6 months away with Survivor Series and Royal Rumble just around the corner. I do believe that the goal is to have Brock Lesnar in the main event at Wrestlemania 34 with the title in hand. I also believe he aims to lose that title on April 8, 2018 as well. Just not to the usual suspects (Reigns, Strowman, Joe).

4K UHD Review: ‘Warrior’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2017

THE FILM


If you ever thought that the world of MMA could be a one-note violent sport, you do not know what you’re talking about and you’ve obviously never seen this highly emotional and excellent film called ‘Warrior‘. It’s been a long time since we’ve all connected to such characters such as these, and it has certainly been a long time since we’ve seen Nick Nolte in a role such as this one, which he received an Oscar nomination for. ‘Warrior‘ is certainly a violent film, but it’s also one about redemption, family, and forgiveness.

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

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.

4K UHD Review: ‘Kick-Ass’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2017

THE FILM


Back in 2008, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. created a new comic book that was kick-ass, that they in fact named it ‘Kick-Ass‘. It was basically Spider-Man if Spider-Man had no superpowers and was had a hardcore R rating. The amount of creative energy, violence, comedy, and character development that went into the comic was magical as it was entertaining and wonderful. Millar just had a way with words and story plot that made this comic book called ‘Kick-Ass‘ solid gold. It was to nobody’s surprise that only two years later, we got a feature film directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and produced by Brad Pitt, that ignited a new breed of R rated superhero films.

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.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Mummy’ (2017)

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!

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

4K UHD Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

First off, my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. I love the weird, oddball, and sometimes anti-hero characters so much, the dialogue, and the feel of the whole movie, that I really connected to it and enjoyed it on every level. This group of heroes are not the norm and I relish in all their conflicts, endearing moments, and witty banter. That brings us to Vol. 2 that reunites all of our favorite characters as they go on missions to save the galaxy.

DC Announces its next movie will be Shazam!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The cat is out of the bag. The next big movie in the DC Cinematic Universe will be Shazam!, which is a story about a boy who transforms into the mightiest mortal on Earth. Filming should begin at the start of 2018 and will release the following year. They even have a director now, which is David F. Sandberg – a horror filmmaker. Sandberg made Lights Out and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation, according to THR. That’s pretty much it. Now he’s getting a big comic book franchise. It’s exciting for sure and judging by Lights Out, I’m sure he’s more than capable.

THE FILM

We’ve seen a ton of versions of ‘King Kong‘ over the decades from the 1933 version to the Jeff Bridges version in the 1970s, and even more recently, the 2005 version that was directed by ‘Lord of the Rings‘ director Peter Jackson. ‘King Kong‘ has been a staple in entertainment and pop culture since he debuted in the early 30s and he is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to Warner Bros.and Legendary Pictures who are taking their cues from Marvel and creating their own universe called the ‘MonsterVerse‘.

Sweet, because it will look amazing in 4K finally. Bitter, because the wallet will take a big hit. Expect to purchase the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales‘ in 4K UHD on October 3rd with the digital version releasing on September 19th.
