Theatre Review: ‘Love Never Dies’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2018

A quick survey to theatergoers asking for their favorite musical or what comes to mind as the most memorable, and the response would no doubt have Andrew Lloyd Webber’s ‘The Phantom of the Opera’ high on the list. Viewed by over 130 million people since debuting in 1986, this gothic darling has become somewhat of an unstoppable force. Hoping to continue the magic, Webber has followed-up with ‘Love Never Dies‘ after years of planning. But as with any sequel, there’s inevitably going to be skepticism and divided sentiments. If one can look past the questionable plot and magnified melodrama, this ‘Victorian Circus’ dazzles with its radiant set design, prolific props, and alluringly spectral atmosphere.

THE FILM


Back in 2009, the brilliant filmmaker Sam Raimi journeyed back to his horror roots and made a fun-as-hell horror-comedy film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘. For those of you who don’t remember who Sam Raimi is, movies like ‘Evil Dead II‘, ‘Army of Darkness‘, ‘The Spider-Man Trilogy‘, and ‘Darkman‘ are some of his accomplishments. Raimi and his brother and frequent collaborator Ivan Raimi had an idea for a horror film called ‘The Curse‘, but when Raimi booked the ‘Spider-Man‘ gig, that film was put on hold for the next decade. After ‘Spider-Man 3‘ was released, Sam and Ivan went quickly back to their idea to work on a low budget horror film again, which turned into ‘Drag Me To Hell’.

After Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead Trilogy) got done filming ‘Spider-Man‘ movies and a variety of other non-horror projects, the master filmmaker returned to his roots with a fun-as-hell film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘, which mixed his unique style of silly humor and ultimate terror. The film was released in 2009 and was a return to form for Raimi, before he got on board with revamping ‘The Evil Dead‘ in TV series form. The new collector’s Edition Blu-ray will be available on February 13th and have theatrical and unrated cuts of the film, a new transfer, and new interviews with the cast. Prior bonus features will also be available here too. I can’t wait for this one.

‘Mama Mia: Here We Go Again’ Sequel is Almost Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

It looks like ‘Mama Mia!‘ is getting the sequel treatment with ‘Mama Mia!: Here We Go Again‘ with everyone returning to their roles. It doesn’t look like Meryl Streep with be the main star here this time, but her and Cher will be seen in the movie. The first film was fun enough and the ABBA music still resonates, but I wonder what music group will be picked this time around. I just hope this isn’t a hasty rehash of the first film.

Film Review: ‘Lady Bird’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

Youth and revolt amidst a Catholic institution is not new territory, let’s be direct. But what’s more remarkable these days is taking a stale idea and making it appear fresh. Greta Gerwig’s directorial debut is a familiar story, yes, but this time the perspective is flipped and reversed into the female itinerary. ‘Lady Bird‘ is colorful, melancholic and genuine. It methodically tells the trivial and vital trials of a teenage girl’s life with such accuracy, it feels as if you’re staring into the mirror and seeing a former self.

The next franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes with mystical and magical powers in ‘Doctor Strange‘, which is a damn good start to this new character. ‘Doctor Strange‘ was created by Steve Ditko and first appeared in Strange Tales #110 back in 1963. ‘Doctor Strange‘ or Stephen Strange is a highly intelligent surgeon who is in the top of his field.

The Big Bang Theory‘ has found a new way to pique viewer’s interest for the upcoming tenth season. They’re finally introducing more of Penny’s family! Specifically, her mom and brother. In a world where Christine Baranski and Laurie Metcalf are the atypical moms, there needs to be someone equally hilarious and well-known to fit into the group, and Katey Sagal fits both qualifiers.

If you were a fan of either the 1976 or 2006 version of ‘The Omen‘, you’re going to want to see ‘The First Omen‘. It’s a prequel flick to the film we’re all familiar with and one that made us glance at every kid we came across with a little bit of wariness.

In more TV news today, Justin Long is set to star in ‘Dream Team‘, an ABC half hour comedy from writers Kari Lizer and Bill Wrubel. Long is an excellent comedic actor with memorable roles in a dozen things from ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story‘ to ‘Galaxy Quest‘, ‘Accepted’ before popping up in a bit more of an action role in ‘Live Free or Die Hard‘ but his character had one foot firmly planted in the funny world, as well. He also starred in one of Kevin Smith’s forays into the horror world with ‘Tusk‘.

Film Review: ‘Zoolander 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 10th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

zoolander

It’s been fifteen years since we saw Derek Zoolander perform on stage in the world of male fashion modeling. That first film, directed by Ben Stiller himself was a brilliant and hilarious satire on the fashion modeling world with a little bit of action and silliness packed in at every corner. ‘Zoolander‘ and many of its characters became instant cult icons. Even many lines of dialogue are still quoted today in everyday life from the first film. Stiller himself has said he’s wanted to do a sequel for the past several years now, but nothing has come together, but one script made it through and everyone signed back on for ‘Zoolander 2‘.

Movie Quotes

[first lines]
Bonasera:
I believe in America. America has made my fortune. And I raised my daughter in the American fashion. I gave her freedom, but I taught her never to dishonor her family. She found a boyfriend; not an Italian. She went to the movies with him; she stayed out late. I didn't protest. Two months ago, he took her for a drive, with another boyfriend. They made her drink whiskey. And then they tried to take advantage of her. She resisted. She kept her honor. So they beat her, like an animal. When I went to the hospital, her nose was a'broken. Her jaw was a'shattered, held together by wire. She couldn't even weep because of the pain. But I wept. Why did I weep? She was the light of my life beautiful girl. Now she will never be beautiful again. I went to the police, like a good American. These two boys were brought to trial. The judge sentenced them to three years in prison - suspended sentence. Suspended sentence! They went free that very day! I stood in the courtroom like a fool. And those two bastards, they smiled at me. Then I said to my wife, for justice, we must go to Don Corleone.
