Dan Moran’s Top Films of 2018 and his Award Nominations!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2018

This year I saw 102 new movies in 2018. That number is actual movies released in 2018. I count Netflix and streaming movies released this year because that is where we are heading but the majority of the 102 was in movie theaters. I decided not to rank my top movies this year because at the end of the day the difference between #10 thru #3 is usually based on my mood when I write the list. So I just put my top movies in ABC order.

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

Listen up, pitches, this movie is the perfect swan song to this series, so get yourself to a theater ASAP and prepare to fall in love all over again with the ladies of Pitch Perfect. The third and final installment of the Pitch Perfect series can be viewed as a stand-alone, but honestly, you’re depriving yourself of the musical and comedic joy that are the first two films if you don’t watch the first two in advance. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last seven or so years, do yourself a favor and have a marathon, or you know, turn on TBS on any given weekend, and watch the first two. In my opinion this one is better than the second installment, so if you found yourself kind of disappointed last go around, this one puts you back on track.

Film Review: ‘The Accountant’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

The Accountant‘ is not just about someone who does people’s taxes and saves people money? It’s so much more than that with Gavin O’Connor’s (Miracle, Warrior) film ‘The Accountant‘, starring Ben Affleck or as we all know him now as ‘Batman‘. ‘The Accountant‘ is a mix between Jason Bourne, Rain Man, and John Wick as we follow a man named Christian Wolff (if that’s his real name?) who was diagnosed as a high-functioning autistic kid at a young age. He had an affinity for numbers and solving puzzles, and was super quick to do so. He might have just been a superhero from an early age.

Film Review: ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

mike-and-dave-need-wedding-dates

I think the vulgar wedding comedy has formed its own sub genre these days. With films like ‘Wedding Crashers‘, ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘American Wedding‘, and ‘The Hangover‘, you have all the ingredients to make a modern audience laugh with toilet humor, vulgar language, sex, drugs, excessive amounts of alcohol, and a happy ending (pun very intended). The next on the list of this current sub-genre of wedding comedies is ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates‘, which is actually based off a real life story of brothers Mike and Dave Stangle, who took to the internet to find dates for their sister’s wedding, offering a free trip. They went viral, got a ton of responses, went on national television, and had a book come out.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Coming to theaters July 8 of this year is a scenario many of us have agonized over, needing a date to a wedding we can’t skip out on. Most of us rely on friends, or even try the dreaded blind-date approach, but not these two guys. Party-hard brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) go to an extreme to find the perfect date to take to the wedding, which just happens to involve a trip to Hawaii. They place an online ad to find girls their family will approve of. The girls (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) who win the position have a little secret their dates will soon learn, they are just looking for a trip to the islands and plan on partying harder than the brothers ever dreamed of.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Trollsheader

DreamWorks Animation and 20th Century Fox have released a peek at their new feature, ‘Trolls‘. The film takes it’s name from the hideous Troll dolls that marched through every child’s life and are either hidden in the darkest corners of a toy box, or they’re given a spot of honor on your desk at work, you know who you are.

Film Review: The Last Five Years’!

Paul N., Here…

The Last 5 Years Movie

If you like musicals, chances are you’ve already heard of, watched, and bought the t-shirt to Jason Robert Brown’s The Last 5 Years.  Tony award winning composer and lyricist Brown has created what amounts to a musical glimpse of a budding relationship as it grows from infatuation, to marriage, to an eventual end. Due to the unique nature of the film’s construction, the previous sentence is in no way a spoiler.

Disney has done it again, they’ve taken a popular musical and put it on screen. There are all kinds of takes on how well the film did, the casting choices and even the songs (Hello? Didn’t anyone see the original show before?), not to mention the flack over the prolific double entendres uttered by Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf to Lilla Crawford’s Red Riding Hood, once again, did you NOT see the original people? I loved it, one of the high points is Meryl Streep as the witch. Meryl is flawless regardless her role. Now the Blu-ray is coming on March 24, 2015!!!

Film Review: ‘Cake’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

cake-toronto-film-festival

At first glance, you’d think ‘Cake‘ is just another romantic comedy film starring the beautiful and talented Jennifer Aniston, but then you’d be very wrong. This utterly depressing yet beautiful film shows just how much range Aniston has on screen, as she’s not her usual comical self here. Directed by Daniel Barnz (‘Beastly‘) and written by Patrick Tobin (this is really his only screen credit), ‘Cake‘ is a moving and honest look at a broken woman who is trying to pull the pieces of her life together. It’s one flaw is in its screenplay, which tends to play on a smaller emotional level than the tearjerker it obviously wants to be.

Film Review: ‘Into the Woods’!

Suzanne L., Here…

Into the Woods had a great deal of expectations to live up to. A beloved musical featuring a well-known cast and director, this fairytale musical could easily have been a disappointment. However, with some musical high notes and great performances, the movie was a fun watch, in spite some editing and storyline issues.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Threat to whom? To them?

No. To your family, your friends, everybody you know, everybody you meet. That's why I went away and didn't come back. You've got to go away, Robert.
Robert Clayton Dean:
No, I don't think so. This is my life, I worked hard for it and I want it back. I grew up without a father, I know what that is. And I will not allow my family to go through that.
