Many movies are cast with celebrities who bring fans into the theater. Arrival boasts a very distinguished cast, including Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. All three give award-worthy performances. However, what makes Director Denis Villeneuve’s film so special is that he makes the story the biggest star of the film.

Film Review: ‘Arrival’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

amyadamsarrival

Not to be confused with ‘The Arrival‘ with a young Charlie Sheen, although both of these films involve visitors from another planet, the simply titled ‘Arrival‘ takes the alien invasion genre into paths that we’ve never traveled down before. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Enemy, Prisoners, Sicario), instead of giant cities falling to the ground and millions of people disintegrating into thin air by a laser beam, ‘Arrival‘ follows the path of two people who want to find a way to communicate with the new aliens that have seemed to land at twelve different locations on planet Earth. Set in present day, multiple giant alien spacecrafts land on Earth, where the governments around the globe put their best and brightest on the job to try and communicate with the new visitors.

I’m Prepared for the ‘Arrival’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 17th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

maxresdefault

Well here’s an alien invasion film that seems to be fresh and original -FINALLY! The trailer for ‘Arrival‘ looks excellent on all levels, from the cast (Amy Adams, Forest Whitaker, Jeremy Renner), to the direction of Denis Villeneuve (‘Sicario‘ and ‘Prisoners‘). It all looks amazing. I just hope it is when it releases on November 11th of this year. This is not to be confused and is not a remake of the 1996 Charlie Sheen vehicle ‘The Arrival‘. This is something entirely different.

Hey guys, Jana here,

One of the many Marvel properties that have been a hit with fans is ‘Daredevil‘ from Netflix. Charlie Cox, Deborah Ann Woll, Elden Henson, Scott Glenn and Rosario Dawson make out an awesome cast that tells the story of Matt Murdock, a blind lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen. As if the cast isn’t already awesome, season 2 brings in a few extra names and those names are attached to some fan favorite characters.

Film Review: Snatched!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2017

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 9.45.28 AM

So, Snatched won’t be winning any Oscars, but if you go in with incredibly low expectations, you can’t be that let down. It has some pretty funny parts, it has some first class actors (Amy Schumer is not one of them), and at the end of the day it’s a film about how much you need your mom and we can generally all get on board with that.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

We know he’s going to star as it’s titled ‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson‘. His counterpart in this series is Kat Foster.

Stephen King has some amazing story-telling abilities and this makes his work a goldmine for both film and TV adaptations.’The Mist‘ has been made into a movie is looking at becoming a TV series now. Fans of ‘Under The Dome‘ may be critical and a little suspicious of how this will play out after the cancellation of that series, also a King property.

Fantastic Fest‘ has released their 2nd wave of programming with a huge roster that would work as an entire film fest on its own! Add it to the first wave programming seen here, and by Jupiter’s Cock, it’s going to be exciting!!! There will be advance screenings of ‘The Martian‘, ‘High-Rise‘, ‘Green Room‘, and ‘The Keeping Room‘.

“This is a big year for genre cinema. We’re exceptionally proud to honor incredible filmmakers and welcome back some of Fantastic Fest’s favorites,” said Tim League, Fantastic Fest and Alamo Drafthouse CEO/Founder.

Sticking true to Fantastic Fest’s penchant for chaos and explosive events, they welcome Itchy-O to Austin for the first time. A blazing, 32-member aural assault from the darkest depths of Colorado, Itchy-O is a wholly immersive, musical experience on a massive scale. Said festival director Kristen Bell, “We cannot wait for them to unleash their percussive mayhem on our audience as hysteria has a welcome home at Fantastic Fest.”

See below for the full lineup of newly announced film titles for Fantastic Fest 2015. Final wave of titles to be announced shortly.
