TERMINATOR: DARK FATE – Film Review

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2019

New and old terminators battle it out to save humankind once again in this heavy-handed homage to the original two films with Terminator: Dark Fate. There are a few elements to like in this big reunion in the Terminator universe, but silly winks and too many head-nods ultimately take you out of the moment, along with some fairly over-the-top action sequences that seem to belong inside a Fast and Furious movie. Even though Arnold Schwarzenegger is still solid gold in this character, perhaps the robot apocalypse was the best thing that could have happened.

Hey guys, Jana here,

ghostbustersmarshmallow

 

Find a kid, ask them “Who ya gonna call?” Depending on the answer, you can judge if their parents rock the gig of raising their man-child. If they answer with the obligatory “Ghostbusters!”, then you know these are kids that will go far in life. Every kid needs a solid bedrock of film savviness to draw references from for the rest of their lives. What kind of parent just lets the kids watch the movies without immersing them in all of the gloriousness that encompasses the franchise? In addition to the multitude of zingers and one-liners is the theme song that will stay in the cannon of 80’s pop culture forever.

THE LIGHTHOUSE – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2019

In the most intense “Odd Couple” story-line, packed with phenomenal performances and a thick 1890’s New England dialect drowning in that ocean juice called rum, Willem Dafoe plays a salty keeper of a lighthouse where a new young man (Robert Pattison) is instructed to help out with the grunt work for a long four weeks together in ‘The Lighthouse‘. From writer-director Robert Eggers (The VVitch), comes this darkly comedic tale of two strangers, forced to live and work with one another in claustrophobic quarters, where alcohol takes over their sanity as creatures and storms start to rear their ugly heads.

The Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

Aladdin (2019) 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2019

Of course, Disney is on top of the world right now. Their multi-billion-dollar box office numbers are astounding. The studio is releasing a ton of movies a year from kids films and Star Wars to Marvel superhero action blockbusters. This also includes live-action remakes of their beloved classic animated movies. Even though these remakes started a long time ago, their first real, big step into this medium was in 2015 with Cinderella (I hated it). From that terrible motion picture, albeit a strong financial success, we have gotten multitudes of these live-action movies with The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, and of course now Aladdin (a remake of the excellent and most-treasured 1992 animated movie).

US – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2019

The horror genre is something sacred and entertaining. It can be whatever you’d like it to be from something of a masked killer on the loose slashing their way through unsuspecting teenage victims to a literal hell unleashing in space to something much more quiet and unnerving like family being torn apart by a demonic entity and everything in between. Jordan Peele has crafted his own horror universe and elements and is 2/2 (so far) in drilling the nail into that horror membrane with precision and accuracy. His latest film simply titled ‘US‘ is much more than a straight out horror film, but something that makes us think about our past, present and ultimate future with each other. I’m happy to say that ‘US‘ is a true masterpiece in horror.

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2019

 

“Cruel Intentions: The 90’s Musical is a satisfying night of sensual bliss – and it shouldn’t be missed!” 

Just in time to commemorate National Goth Day, The Wyly Theatre in Dallas opened its doors on 5/22 to a risqué musical based on the classic cult film: Cruel Intentions (1999). The stylish lounge was abuzz for opening night of ‘Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical’ as attendees picked up their tickets; each one accompanied by a trendy slap bracelet.

‘Dumbo’ (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2019

“This is the worst film of the year or at least most disappointing.”

In 1941, Disney wasn’t doing too well financially. It was the success of a short 64 minute animated movie about an elephant who could fly that would launch Disney back into the successful realm of cinema. Since then, this film called ‘Dumbo‘ has brightened our days throughout the years, made us sing along to its original and amazing songs, and fall in love over and over with each viewing with the titular character ‘Dumbo‘. It was a simple story about a newborn elephant with large ears. All of the other animals and humans at the circus made fun of Dumbo, which caused his mother to protect him, thus forcing her to leave Dumbo and be locked up because she became “dangerous”. Turns out, Dumbo could fly with the help of his mouse friend and became the star of the circus, eventually living a life of luxury and reuniting with his mother. It’s a beautiful story for sure with a couple of thought-out, well designed characters.

4K UHD Review: ‘Forrest Gump’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2018

THE FILM


In 1986, author Winston Groom gave us the book ‘Forrest Gump‘, about a simple minded guy who accomplished a lot through his life, including running a shrimping boat and being an astronaut. That book was made into an award winning film called ‘Forrest Gump‘ that starred Tom Hanks as Gump and Robin Wright Penn, amongst other people. Even though there are many differences from the book, this adaptation that director Robert Zemeckis made was truly inspirational, emotional, and a lot of fun.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Wrinkle In Time’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein!)

I really wanted to like A Wrinkle in Time more than I did. I gave it my best shot, but in the end, the only thing I can honestly say was that it had lots of great colors. Perhaps it was my high expectations for a Disney film, plus Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling that set me up for disappointment, but regardless, I was left feeling let down in a film that I knew practically nothing about. I have never read the 1962 Madeleine L’Engle novel, so I honestly had no clue what the plot was but whatever, it’s Disney, it’s gonna be good. Well…

4K UHD Review: ‘The Matrix’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2018

THE FILM


There are only a handful of times where a single film completely flips the entire cinema world upside down and becomes the landmark and milestone for future movies and filmmakers in the decades to come. In 1999, the filmscape was forever changed with a sci-fi action movie called ‘The Matrix‘ by the Wachowski siblings. Nobody had ever heard of the filmmaking duo before and there was not a single soul in the world that though Keanu Reeves would become the action star he became after this movie, but it all worked out well and drove a ton of creative people to think, philosophize, and create even more work based on ‘The Matrix‘.

Dan’s 2018 Oscar Picks!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 3rd, 2018

Here are my Oscar Predictions. I haven’t seen many of the shorts or documentaries so I didn’t even bother with those, but I have seen everything else that is nominated for the big categories except Call me by Your Name. Also, I fell asleep during The Post, but so did everyone.

As a hard and fast rule, I refuse to recognize any recent best picture winners until a movie comes along that was better on every single filmmaking level than Mad Max: Fury Road. This year is no different, so congrats to Fury Road.

Movie Quotes

Brooke Meyers:
I just don't know how we got here. Our entire relationship, I have gone above and beyond for you, for us. I've cooked, I've picked your shit up off the floor, I've laid your clothes out for you like you're a four year old. I support you, I supported your work. If we ever had dinner or anything I did the plans, I take care of everything. And I just don't feel like you appreciate any of it. I don't feel you appreciate me. All I want is to know, is for you to show me that you care.
Gary Grobowski:
Why didn't you just say that to me?
Brooke Meyers:
I tried. I've tried.
Gary Grobowski:
Never like that, you might have said some things that meant to imply that, but I'm not a mind reader...
