Hey guys, Jana here,

MST3K – you love it or you hate it, it’s a very polarizing show, but for those of us that have been feeling painfully neglected by our favorite trash-talking threesome every time we watch a particularly horrendous flick, there is hope on the horizon. Hope in the form of a very specific Kickstarter.

Hey guys, Jana here,

On the back of Syfy’s announcement to propagate more typical sci-fi fare and get away from the kitschy ‘Sharknado‘-type offerings, the network is bringing ‘3001: The Final Odyssey‘ to miniseries. Arthur C. Clarke’s novel from 1997 of the same name will give the mini it’s basis.

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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

300-rise-of-an-empire

Well, we’re finally getting a sequel to ‘300‘. The title is of course ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘ and brings back Lena Headey as Queen Gorgo and Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes. Eva Green will play Artemisia and Sullivan Stapleton will play Themistocles. This trailer is all sorts of cool as it transitions nicely from the original ‘300’ film and features a thrilling speech from Gorgo. I cannot wait.

Hi Bryan Here….

So we have written about the upcoming ‘300’ prequel a few times on the site and what the whole gist of the story will be about.  Seems like progress is being made on the project and Warner Bros. has found their lead.  Actor Sullivan Stapleton will play Themistokles in ‘300: The Battle of Artemisia’ which will be directed by Noam Murro.

Hi Bryan Here….

So you all remember that sequel or prequel to ‘300’ Warner has been wanting to do that was Xerxes centric.  So originally, Zack Snyder who directed ‘300’ and the most recent ‘Sucker Punch’ was going to direct this Xerxes film, but Warner and Christopher Nolan offered him the chance to reboot the Superman franchise.  He took that job instead.  So Warner has been hard at work trying to find a new director for the Xerxes project which is now titled ‘300: Battle of Artemisia’.

Hi Bryan Here…

It was only a matter of time, that “300” would get a sequel.  That film made so much money for Warner Bros. and spawned so many books and toys, that it really was just common sense to make another film.  And it has been talked about for a while now.  The sequel will be called “Xerxes” and Frank Miller is on board to create this world once again for the silver screen.

Bad Boys For Life – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2020

“Bad Boys for Life is a blast.”

“Shit just got real.” Bad Boys for Life is the third installment in this movie franchise that has Will Smith and Martin Lawrence partnering up once again, telling jokes, driving fast vehicles, and killing the bad guys. The first film was released 25 years ago with the second film debuting 17 years back, both of them made by Michael Bay. It’s a new decade and era, and even though Will Smith hasn’t aged a day since the Clinton administration, Michael Bay is nowhere to be found behind the scenes here. In fact, two relatively unknown Belgian filmmakers, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have taken the reigns and made a thrilling, funny, and somewhat heartfelt Bad Boys film, one that has consequences and brings more development to these two hilarious characters. It’s no wonder Arbi and Fallah are tackling Beverly Hills Cop 4 with Eddie Murphy next. But with Bad Boys for Life, you can expect the usual action set pieces, but with some added heart and soul to the mix, which is a very welcome addition and breathes new life into this film series.

Just Mercy – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2020

Just Mercy, the adaptation of the novel by Bryan Stevenson, is superb. I say this as someone who read the book, as a criminal defense lawyer, and most importantly, as someone who needs the message of hope now more than ever. As a lawyer who works in this field, I saw the film through a different lens, and I want to preface this review with that caveat. But, this film needs to be seen by people that have nothing to do with the criminal justice system. It’s not just a film for the black community, or for someone touched by the system, or for the disenfranchised- this is a story that needs to be told on a big screen to anyone that is willing to listen. I hope you are all ears.

JOKER – 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2020

THE FILM


Todd Phillips is several oceans removed from his usual comedy escapades (The Hangover trilogy) with his brutally dark, yet brilliant film ‘Joker‘. Those of you who are not particularly fond of the comic book genre these days will still find something amazing in this DC universe that takes place in the 1980s. Joaquin Phoenix gives an unparalleled performance as the titular psychopath with a smile like you’ve never seen him before in pages or on-screen. It’s really something to behold, but then again, Phoenix is always magnificent. The real star of the film is director Todd Phillips himself, who for the first time showed that he can hang with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and Francis Ford Coppola, delivering a picture-perfect account on Joker.
