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,

3001_the_final_odyssey_a_p_0

 

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’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 18th, 2014

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.

Attack Force Z is coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Back in 1982, there was an Australian WWII film that was released that was called Attack Force Z. It starred the unknown actors Mel Gibson and Sam Neill, who both went on to be big blockbuster stars in Hollywood. You got to think that Gibson used his knowledge and memories on this film for his own movie Hacksaw Ridge. Now, the film is getting its Blu-ray release with a new 4K scan and new extras. Find out the details below.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Movie is Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 17th, 2017

 

Disney is looking to fill out its Star Wars slate for the years to come so they can bank billions of dollars in the coming years. One of those films is going to be centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi, who was originally played by Alec Guinness and then Ewan McGregor in the horrible prequels. Obi-Wan is the Jedi Master who nudges Luke Skywalker out the door to become a Jedi.

Enjoy the trailer for Season 2 of Vice Principals!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

There’s a new trailer for HBO’s 2nd and final season of Vice Principals, which will premiere on HBO September 17th. This season looks completely insane. When we left season one, somebody with a mask on, shot Danny McBride, as he and Walton Goggins were on a mission to get the current Principal kicked out of school. It was a cliff-hanger to say the least.

Blu-ray Review: Going in Style!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

(Film Review portion is by Janet White)

Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 film of the same name, struts out of the Warner Brothers’ catalog to fill theaters with laughter once again. Joe (Michael Caine, formerly played by George Burns), Willie (Morgan Freeman, formerly Lee Strasberg), and Albert (Alan Arkinformerly Art Carney) mix it up to form a hilariously bad trio bent on robbing the establishments that robbed them of their pension. For thirty plus years they worked for Wechsler Steel Company who suddenly relocates out of the country and dissolves their pension fund. Faced with foreclosure, a need for a kidney transplant, and the knowledge that they were robbed to pay their former employer’s utility bills drive Joe, Willie, and Al to rob WSB bank.

Fox Bringing back King of the Hill?

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Is Fox finally doing something right? They just might be. Over the past few years, the Fox network has been brining back older TV shows and reviving them with mostly the original cast. We saw it with ‘24‘, ‘X-Files‘, and ‘Prison Break‘, all of which were just on the side of being below average. Now it seems Fox is wanting to revive an actual good show for once with King of the Hill. The CEO of Fox has had talks with creator Mike Judge and Greg Daniels about bringing the show back for more seasons.
