Chris Rock Steps Up To Host 88th Academy Awards!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 21st, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

The 77th Annual Academy Awards - Photo Room

Have the Oscars lost a little of their glittery oomph that make it a night of royalty for Hollywood’s best and brightest? Maybe. One year it will be utterly entertaining, original and exciting, the next it feels forced, stale, boring and becomes the night that NEVER ends early enough. I’m sure there is a formula for success and the host is key. Hoping to have figured out that recipe, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin have asked Chris Rock back to host the 88th Academy Awards.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

oscarsnominationsheader

We are only a few days away from the 87th annual Oscar ceremony, which airs live this Sunday. Again, we will be delivering a live commentary full of jokes, trivia, facts, winners, losers, and giving away free gifts throughout the night. So please, keep it right here during the Oscars and use the hashtag #boomstickcomics when posting to social media. But, let’s talk about predictions for a minute. I’m sure some of you have put some money down on Oscar pools at works or with your friends to see who comes out the winner this year. There were some excellent movies this year along with some amazing performances, so needless to say, this year will be extremely difficult to predict.

Hi, Bryan Here…..

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed the Oscars last night.  I thought McFarlane was great and funny and thought his bits were solid.  All of the musical numbers with the exception of the two 007 SONGS and the song from ‘Ted‘ was quite awful and not fun to watch. Although ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild‘ didn’t win, there was some well-deserved victories. We also had out 6th annual live commentary last night, and it was a great success. I want to thank all of you for participating. We look forward to next year.

Film Review ‘Another Wolfcop’!!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 11th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,I had the awesome pleasure of watching ‘Another Wolfcop‘. I have to preface this review by saying there are few things I love more in this world than movies, specifically the fantastic sub-genre of horror-comedy. Don’t ask me why, but that pair works together like pineapple on pizza. Yeah, I’m one of those people. While people far and wide dis the pineapple on pizza combo, it’s an unadulterated fact that the horror-comedy tag-team works like crazy in film. So read on to check out what you can expect from this sequel to ‘Wolfcop‘ from writer/director Lowell Dean.

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: ‘The Promise’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 21st, 2017

Audrey E., here….

maxresdefault

If done right, who doesn’t appreciate a muscular war film decorated with a cherry of passion on top? Based on true events, ‘The Promise,’ directed by Academy Award winning filmmaker Terry George (Hotel Rwanda), had the capacity to convey a burning love story intertwined with the real Armenian genocide during World War I. However, inspired thematic violence and even Christian Bale can’t guarantee your film’s success.

Top 10 Ryan Gosling Scenes in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 17th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 9.59.40 AM

Ryan Gosling is a true patron for the arts. Proof of this can not only be found in his selective partaking in films with telling characters, but also in his accomplished side projects. There’s his under-appreciated dark wave and gothic indie band, Dead Man’s Bones, and we can’t forget his courageous 2014 directorial debut in the fantasy drama, Lost River. He’s come a long way from his humble beginnings as a Mouseketeer on The All New Mickey Mouse Club, and despite the pressure from Hollywood to keep up appearances, Ryan concentrates on staying true to himself and what matters most: his art. Today I’ve put together a list of my Top 10 favorite Ryan Gosling performances in film and why this talented Canadian, a true 21st century James Dean, is more than meets the eye.

Just What is ‘Extortion’?

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 5.55.30 PM

How much would you pay someone that has kidnapped your family and threatening to kill them if you don’t pay them millions of dollars? If money wasn’t in the cars, what would you do in that particular situation? That’s the question that is asked in a new film called ‘Extortion’, which stars Danny Glover, Eion Bailey (Once Upon a Time), and Oscar nominated actor Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips). If I was in this situation, I feel I would have two options. One, cut my losses and start over with beautiful wife (or wives) with big breasts with all the cocaine and Dr. Pepper we can handle, OR I would hire John Wick to take care of things. Since the latter option is movie magic, I’m going with option one. It’s what God would have wanted anyway.

Yes, we are all a bit nervous when it comes to video game movies. There is good reason for that too, since most of them are fairly terrible, even though some make a ton of money at the box office. The ‘Tomb Raider‘ films with Angelina Jolie made a ton of money as did the many sequels of ‘Resident Evil‘. Let’s not forget the recent ‘Warcraft‘ movie or ‘The Angry Birds‘ movie either – all of which made a big box office splash, despite the quality of story and performances.

It’s hard to believe, but ‘Carrie‘ is celebrating 40 years in an epic way. What’s a more apropos way to mark 40 years of a prom-related movie, than with a 1970s prom-themed fan event and fundraiser that combines a screening with a reunion of the cast and crew?!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

CilBVwhVEAEc2jM

Fox has released a new trailer for their new TV series ‘The Exorcist’, which is based off of William Blatty’s 1971 book of the same name, and of course the hit film that gave us all nightmares for years to come. The show will premiere on September 23rd of this year. I just hope this is somewhat good and scary, but my hopes are not high for this one, considering this is not on HBO.

Sicario‘ came out swinging last year and received a slew of nominations for its effort, three of those for Academy Awards. Emily Blunt, Benecio Del Toro and Josh Brolin starred in the drug war thriller. It told the story of an idealistic agent sent to flush out and eradicate a drug cartel responsible for the deaths of several members of her team. There was such a great turnout for the flick that a sequel is in the works and getting closer to a production start with plans to be in full swing by the end of the year.

I am a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. I’ve never hidden it, but I am. I wasn’t in love with him and his boyish good looks like other girls my age were, I recognized him from ‘Growing Pains‘, after all. He didn’t begin his career as absolutely gorgeous, that developed over time. I had to learn to love his work for what it was. Saying that, Leo’s been overlooked for that naked, golden, guy many times before he finally won his first Oscar at last night’s award show.

The project brought together some Tarantino favorites and some new to his work. Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern are the top-billed names and they make a fantastic ensemble that make up ‘The Hateful Eight‘ and you can bring it home on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on March 29, 2016.

Film Review: ‘Jem and the Holograms’!

Jem-and-the-Holograms-thumb-600x348

We now live in an age where the Next Big Artist is being found online. Justin Bieber* was discovered on YouTube and being Vine Famous is now C-list enough to get you on Dancing With The Stars. It should then come as no surprise that the reimagining of ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ involves a viral video. Jerrica, being an overly shy singer-songwriter, records a song dressed in disguise as Jem. When her sister Kimber discovers the video on her camera, she secretly posts it to YouTube. The video goes viral and Jem is offered a record deal by THE Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis) of Starlight Enterprises, which couldn’t have happened at a better time, since Jerrica’s aunt Bailey (Molly Ringwald) is about to lose their house. Jerrica accepts the offer, but only if her sisters get to come along as her band. Cue the makeover montage!

Russell has taken an obvious notice of this and continues to cast the pair in his films to rousing success. Then again, that’s a Russell standard, he finds actors he likes and he sticks with them. In this case, Robert DeNiro is another who has worked with him in the past that appears in ‘Joy‘. Under Russell’s direction, each of the actors has been nominated for an Academy Award for their performances, with JLaw winning for ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘.

Meryl Streep is the most amazing actress. Ever. I know that’s a bold statement, I’ll try to earn some goodwill by noting that Audrey Hepburn is my pick for second best. I’ve never hidden the fact that Streep gives me major lady-wood and I’d buy a ticket to watch her read the phone book. One of my favorite flicks to watch her shine in is ‘Mama Mia‘. I have a major weak spot for musicals and the golden-haired goddess singing and dancing was a natural favorite, so, of course, I have been incredibly excited for ‘Ricki and the Flash‘ since I heard it was announced.

interstellar_movie-wide

Periodically covering the land, homes, vehicles, indoor counters, and tables inside locked up homes are dust storms, more massive than those in Dune and The Mummy.  The viewer physically feels the force of the dust wall as the sound rocks their seats and chests.  The people cannot see or breathe.  The air has become 80% nitrogen and rising, slightly north of our current healthy air at 78% nitrogen.  Strange?  Yes.  A loud boom shakes the viewer, a drone flies barely above a truck, far below avoiding radar.  Odd?  Yes.  But signs of the end of the planet Earth?  The general public doesn’t know it, but I guess it is a lot like that frog sitting in a pot of water being brought slowly to a boil.  The frog will sit there and slowly cook itself.  Well, not on Cooper’s watch.

New Trailer For ‘Taken 3’ aka ‘Tak3n’!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

I love Liam Neeson. I love his voice, his looks – the whole package. I watch everything he’s been in, yes, even the crap movies. Believe me, there are some really bad movies in that lineup, too. He was the perfect voice for Aslan in ‘The Chronicles of Narnia‘, he was amazing as Hannibal in ‘The A-Team‘ and when he started his journey as Bryan Mills in ‘Taken‘, I didn’t think it was possible to love him more. Then came ‘Taken 2‘, I was excited about his return as Mills, but the film wasn’t the same as the original, no matter how hard they tried to emulate it. The end of production numbers proved it wasn’t a giant blockbuster, but still successful. Then some genius came up with the idea of ‘Tak3n‘. Yup, clever little title and Mills returns again. I have to think he didn’t agree to this after the second, but hopefully was a part of the contract when he signed on for 2. I have to hope Neeson is aware of how bad of an idea this film was but was contractually obligated to forge ahead.

Dwayne Johnson Announces Robert Ludlum Adaptation!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 30th, 2014

Hi guys, Jana here,

dwayne_johnson_36553

Robert Ludlum is the brain that brought us the Jason Bourne novels that have spawned into an incredibly lucrative film franchise. Even though the writer died in 2001, doesn’t mean that his cannon of work is at rest. Prior to becoming a writer, Ludlum was a U.S. Marine, a theatrical actor and producer. His experience in the theatre is likely what has led his written works to film adaptation so smoothly. He authored some 27 thrillers and although Bourne may be the most well-known of Ludlum’s characters doesn’t mean he was the only one.

Lauren Bacall 1924-2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hi all, Jana here,

 

Lauren-Bacall-001

 

Sadly, I’m bringing you another bit of sad news tonight. While the world is still reeling from the loss of Robin Williams, we’ve unfortunately lost another star that adds to the pantheon of Hollywood Royalty that will be shining down on us from above. Lauren Bacall took her leave today at the age of 89.

Bacall shot to stardom during Hollywood’s golden age, with all the sexuality a hundred women possess in only her little finger, she was not accidentally given success, but was one of the most beautiful and glamorous women to prove she had the right to grace the silver screen.  It only took the slightest sound to escape her lips that rendered men powerless. Men wanted her and women wanted to be her. Her first film was the 1944 effort based on an Ernest Hemingway novel, ‘To Have and Have Not’. While this film not only launched her career, but it also paired her with the dashing and always debonair Humphrey Bogart. While  the reasons this was no chance encounter but a divine meeting will soon become clear to all after the siren and the hard-edged cynic with a nobility streak take their working relationship to the next level and end up with rice in their hair when the two thespians became legally wed on May 21, 1945 and lasted until Bogie’s death in  1957. She married one more time in her life to Jason Robards lasting only 8 years and ended in divorce.

Hello, Jana here,

 

pirates-of-the-caribbean-5-movie-pirates-of-the-caribbean-5-confirmed-man-tells-tales

 

Disney is hoping the golden goose lays another blockbuster with ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales“. We’ve got a release date of July 7, 2017. I’m a big Johnny Depp fan, and I love the Pirates movies. There’s a point where you have to let a good thing end while it’s still awesome. The last film ‘On Stranger Tides‘, seemed to begin digging it’s own resting place in Davey Jones’ Locker. I really think that’s where the franchise jumped the proverbial shark. I kind of think Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley‘s departures started the series in a tail spin.
