Amazon’s New Comedy Series Are Debuting This Month!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

When I read the premise for Alpha House, an original series from Amazon for release strictly on Amazon, I felt like I was kind of familiar with the idea. Four buddies that, due to skyrocketing rental prices, decide to share a house. This sounds like a frat party waiting to happen. With a name like Alpha House, you’d guess to be right on the money, right? WRONG! This is a story about four senators faced with crazy rent prices in Washington D.C., and decide to split the cost. Which, incidentally, is something that actually happens.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Amazon’s Prime Streaming Service just got a hell of a lot better.  It will be giving Netflix a run for its money.  EPIX signed a deal with Amazon that more than doubles Amazon’s streaming film catalogue.  This comes shortly after EPIX’s contract with Netflix expired.  Now films from Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate will be available on Amazon’s Streaming service.  “We think customers will really enjoy watching new titles like The AvengersIron Man 2 and The Hunger Games on their Kindle Fire, PlayStation 3, Xbox, iPad or any of the other of the Amazon Instant Video compatible devices,” says Amazon VP Bill Carr. Epix CEO Mark Greenberg calls the deal “a great line extension” for Amazon.  Read the official press release below.

Hi, Bryan Here….

How many Transformers films, tv shows, spinoffs have there been?  Too many to count.  Nothing will ever compare to the original series and film in my opinion.  Sure, some people say the originals were full of cheese, like the ones today, but I disagree.  I have gone back and watched the original series on my DVD volumes and in my well respected opinion, that they still hold up today as they did back in the 80’s.  Especially the film.  This all CG animated series ‘Prime’ at first had me thinking I would hate it just as much as the Michael Bay films, but to my surprise, it wasn’t all that bad.  I actually thought a lot of the series was pretty kick ass.

7500 – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 17th, 2020

“7500 is a quick potboiler of a movie with a couple of fun storytelling devices and a good performance from Levitt.”

Not to be confused with the 2014 spooky film that starred Leslie Bibb and Turtle from HBO’s Entourage, 7500 is a hair-raising thriller set in the mile high club with a couple of gimmicks from German film director Patrick Vollrath. Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises), this suspenseful film barely allows room to breathe as a passenger airplane is hijacked by a group of terrorists with a Jr. co-pilot forced to take charge for the duration of the flight.

SELAH AND THE SPADES – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 17th, 2020

“Selah and the Spades is a visually stunning modern-day Godfather.”

Life for teenagers at posh boarding schools isn’t always about making perfect grades and getting into prestigious ivy league schools. In the debut feature film from Tayarisha Poe called Selah and the Spades, the routine of boarding school life consists of drugs, alcohol, underground parties that are run by a multi-faction group of kids set up like rival mafia families. Even though this film has all the surface material of a young-adult story in the coming-of-age genre, it’s anything but that as it dives deep into serious despair, betrayal, and attempted murder with all signs that point to one popular cheerleader named Selah.

by Janet White on Mar 28th, 2020

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

” Cute, quirky, and inspiring to not give up on love.”

Merriam-Webster defines love as “attraction based on sexual desire: affection and tenderness felt by lovers.”  Alex Magaña, director and writer of What Love Looks Like, accepts the challenge to bring love’s truth to the big screen.  In many hues, love is one of humankind’s most sought-after life goals.  Five relationships, each of them different in their understanding of love, what it feels like to receive love and what it means to give love, set out to show that though the paths may be different love is out there.

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.
