Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice….Beetlejuice?

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 14th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Beetlejuice

 

Say the name 3 times and you’re in trouble! Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary….’Beetlejuice‘? Talking about none other than the original black and white stripe suit wearing master of disaster before Robin Thicke took a crack at the outfit, and the disaster that is Miley Cyrus. Before he came along, Michael Keaton did it better than anyone could imagine. Tim Burton knew he was making an excellent casting decision bringing ‘Mr. Mom’ into the mix.

When you think of the collected works of Tim Burton, certain projects stand out. If you ask my daughter, she’ll point out Alice in Wonderland, my son will give props to, his favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you ask me, I’ll mention the Batman movies, Edward Scissorhands or Beetlejuice. There has been a lot of talk about Burton, Michael Keaton and Beetlejuice lately. In particular, whether or not Burton would like to film a sequel. He is already a producer of the proposed movie with David Geffen. I don’t blame Warner Brothers for giving this one to Burton to consider. How could you make a trip back to the universe of Beetlejuice without his directing? It would be like eating steak with plastic wrapped around your tongue…all of the fill of food, but none of the flavor. Come to think about it, that’s kind of like sex with a condom, too!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith have just signed a two-year first-look feature producing deal at Warner Bros. with one of the projects being a sequel to the amazing 1980’s film ‘Beetlejuice’.  The film will not be a remake; the intention is to reboot it by advancing the storyline of the original, which was done by The Geffen Company and Warner Bros.

Just a few of my favorite posters!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 11th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

There are several elements that go into play when a movie is prepping for their initial debut. There is an advertising campaign, and the goal is to saturate the atmosphere with the upcoming movie, all designed to get us to show up in theaters and plunk down a chunk of our hard-earned cash. One of the first type of media to invade our subconscious is the all-important movie poster. This may seem like a small thing, but each poster is carefully designed to share just enough information that will reel us a bit closer, then just like when fishing, set that hook.

Hey guys, Jana here,

There’s some casting movement on the Disney, live-action ‘Dumbo‘ front. Tim Burton has been putting together a retelling of the elephant story for some time now and has a few actors already on the payroll for the project. Those include Eva Green (‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children‘), Danny DeVito (‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘) and Colin Farrell (‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them‘).

Film Review: ‘The Bye Bye Man’!

Let me set this stage.  We open on a scene in 1969 involving a guy that has obviously snapped and is muttering, “don’t think it – don’t say it – don’t think it – don’t say it.”  Pretty good setup, huh?  Then it moves to three teenagers in a creepy house.  Not bad huh?  Then the teenagers are having a party, where one of them has a big brother that has a family that for some reason comes over to this college party with a bunch of underage drinkers, and also he brings a five year old.

Tim Burton Set To Direct Live-Action ‘Dumbo’ Movie!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Dumbo-disneyscreencaps.com-6976.jpg

I’m not sure if this is quite the best news, but Tim Burton (‘Beetlejuice‘) will direct a live-action remake of ‘Dumbo‘ for Disney. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of ‘Dumbo‘, it follows a baby circus elephant who is bullied because of his giant ears, which give him special abilities. The original film came out in 1941.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Seth Grahame-Smith has made a name for himself in the book world and in the film world. He was a writer and producer since around 2000 and his been a part of projects like ‘The Hard Times of RJ Berger‘ and ‘Dark Shadows‘. Then came the big screen adaptation of his novel ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘, from there he picked up several more projects. He is currently writing the ‘Beetlejuice‘ sequel for Director Tim Burton and signed on as a producer for the project. In a producer capacity, he is involved in the ‘It‘ remake, the ‘Gremlins‘ reboot and ‘Ninjago‘. I’ll spare you the argument I have against film remakes.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

Michael Keaton in ‘Birdman’ Is AWESOME!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

image001_(4)

Michael Keaton is one of the best actors of the last century and was completely robbed of an Oscar for his role as ‘Beetlejuice‘. He’s proved countless times that his talent knows no bounds. His new film is called ‘Birdman‘ and looks all sorts of awesome. In the film, Keaton plays an actor who is famous for playing a superhero. He is now trying to book a gig on Broadway. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego as this superhero to get back his sanity, career, and family.

Hi, Bryan Here…..

MusicSheetOldBloodFILMS

Mondo has only released a handful of soundtracks on vinyl since they first opened online, but this year they are hitting the ground full force with releasing more amazing movie soundtracks on the best quality format to listen to music. So far this year we have had ‘Poltergeist‘, ‘The Deadly Spawn‘, and the recent ‘Drive‘ soundtrack, which sold out in record time in under 30 minutes. And just this past week, they sold out of their newest soundtrack, ‘Oblivion‘, which has an amazing score. The cover artwork is amazing and the sound is even better with their releases. Mondo clearly knows what they’re doing when it comes to art and soundtracks.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Dark Shadows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 9th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

The Dukes of Hazzard, The Addams Family, and the A-Team are all television shows that have become feature films over the past several years. The latest television show to be remade on the big screen is the 60’s television series, Dark Shadows. With its dark humor, strange characters, and gothic set pieces, how could off-beat director Tim Burton resist?  Unfortunately, Dark Shadows proves yet again that even though you have an expansive budget, amazing set pieces, and good actors, you don’t necessarily get a quality film.  Dark Shadows fails to humanize any of the characters besides Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), and although it started off as a fun quirky film, it never improved or advanced after the first ten minutes.

Hi Bryan Here….

Tim Burton is in talks to direct a live-action version of ‘Pinocchio’ movie which is currently being scripted by ‘Pushing Daisies’ creator, Bryan Fuller.  Warner Bros. is courting Robert Downey Jr. to star as Geppetto as well.  This is no surprise as Burton’s last film, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was his biggest box office success.  Now it seems on the big screen as well as on television, there is an abundance of fantasy/fairy tale films in the works.  Heck there is a few Snow White films coming out and a few Pinocchio films coming out, and not too mention the many more fantasy/fairy tale films that have been slated for this year already.
