Hey guys, Jana here,

CSI-Cyber-Logo

 

CSI: Cyber‘ is bringing in another cast member with a fan-base of their own that will bring viewers on board just for the nostalgic effect, alone. If you grew up on ‘90210‘ like I did then you’ll be just as excited as I am that Luke Perry has been cast in what is hopefully a recurring role.

Plans are for the former Dylan McKay are that he will play FBI agent Nick Dalton, a character that is eyeing the role of head of the cyber crime division out of D.C. The job went, instead, to the main character, Avery Ryan played by Patricia Arquette.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

 

 

Fox Broadcasting Company, Twentieth Century Fox Television And FX Celebrates Their 2012 Emmy Nominees

 

 

James Van Der Beek has come a long way from being the whiny Dawson, the boy with his own creek. JVDB has tried to maintain his TV presence with parts here and there or in a few shows as the star. ‘Don’t Trust The B—- in Apartment 23‘ was an entirely ridiculous plot with JVDB playing himself and ‘Friends With Better Lives‘ did not hold widespread appeal to fans or advertisers and it was canceled. Some people might slink off into the unknown depths after a couple of failures, but you don’t know JVDB apparently. You don’t make a name for yourself by crying on a ridiculous teen drama without being able to rise above the petty crap a show like that can saddle you with.

Ted Danson Joins ‘CSI’ As Series Regular!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Two weeks ago, talks started with Ted Danson for him to take on the team leader and lead role on the original ‘CSI’ series for CBS.  Things must have gone well because now Ted Danson will star in ‘CSI’.  He will replace the role Laurence Fishburne recently had.  Danson has proved he is one hell of a likable actor and fun to watch on screen.  His work was amazing on FX’s ‘Damages’, and his work on HBO’s ‘Bored To Death’ is some of my favorite tv watching in recent memory.  I just hope he plans to have the same amount of air time on ‘Bored To Death’.  It seems like he will.  Enjoy the press release below.

TV Review: The New ‘JACK RYAN’ Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2018

This weekend I had the time to watch the entire first season of Amazon’s new series Jack Ryan. Growing up I enjoyed all of the Harrison Ford versions of Jack Ryan and even liked the Ben Affleck iteration. The reboot attempt with Chris Pine fell pretty flat for me a few years back but I’ve always enjoyed the character. John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is a perfectly serviceable TV hero but is really bogged down by the story around him. In an effort to be optimistic, I will say that I am hopeful for the second season.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

The Pilgrimage Trailer Looks Hardcore!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

“I’m on a pilgrimage to see a moose!” Well, not so much here, but there’s a new movie coming out on August 11th called Pilgrimage that looks hardcore. From what I can tell from the bloody violent trailer, it looks like a cross between Braveheart, a supernatural horror film, and Scorsese’s recent Silence film, but you know, with more decapitations and blood. Jon Bernthal (Walking Dead) and Tom Holland (Spider-Man: Homecoming), along with Richard Armitage (The Hobbit) star in the film, and takes place in Ireland in the year 1209 where a group of monks being a pilgrimage to escort an ancient relic. Things get out of hand, human heads end up on giant sticks, sword fights ensue, and blood is shed. This seems right up my alley.

Scream Factory is releasing ‘Manhunter‘ in Collector’s Edition form on May 24th on Blu-ray with a ton of new extras. Do you remember ‘Manhunter’ from 1986?

This film also had a killer soundtrack as well. Below is the press release and all the info you will need on the release. Can’t wait for May 24th.

Lucas-Till

The ‘MacGyver‘ series reboot is getting off the ground and they’ve locked in the actor who will play the titular character in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’s Lucas Till. CBS is taking the 1985 series and updating the project by 30 years. We can expect the same ingenious response to solving problems with a few more current gadgets, but I bet nothing will take the place of a trusty Swiss Army knife.

Film Review: ‘Miracles from Heaven’!!

by Janet White on Mar 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Miracles from Heaven - Family

Miracles from Heaven opens in a beautiful richly colored forest and Christie Beam defining a miracle, an occurrence that “cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws.” Cut to a nice size farm and the interior of a rolling tire as a little girl is giggling and could there be a sweeter beginning. The Beam family has three girls: Abigail (Brighton Sharbino), Annabelle (Kylie Rogers), and Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) and two loving parents Christy (Jennifer Garner) and Kevin (Martin Henderson). Tragedy mysteriously strikes the middle child and thus begins the trial of this family’s strength, love, and faith.  Read the rest of this entry »

DVD Review: ‘iZombie Season One’!

by Janet White on Jan 18th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

iZombie - DVD

THE SHOW

iZombie…I was so sure that this was going to be a teeny bopper (do they still say that) TV show, but I’m happy to say that my assumption was wrong. This show has intrigue, action, comedy, and a tinge of horror. Based on the comic book of the same name, Dr. Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) was a promising resident prior to being transformed into a zombie. However, being a zombie assistant medical examiner has its perks and insights (a variety of crime stopping assets). After all, how many ways can you make a meal with brains? iZombie has very creative cuisine.

Film Review: ‘Words and Pictures’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 4th, 2014

Janet W. Here…

tn-500_clive-owen-tiff-3

What is mankind’s highest form of expression?  Word or Pictures?  Or maybe Words and Pictures.  The film Words and Pictures is a clever, cheeky comedy starring Juliette Binoche and Clive Owen that poses and addresses this question.  Jack Marcus (Owen) is an honors literature teacher at a preparatory high school and a somewhat functioning alcoholic.  Indirectly the film informs the viewer that Marcus’ alcoholism had destroyed his marriage, placed a huge stress on his relationship with his son, and affected what is near and dear to his heart, the teaching of words.  His alcoholism threatened his position because Marcus was consistently late, annoyed other teachers and didn’t always grade his students’ papers or stick to a curriculum.  Marcus has a brief moment of victory each day while in the faculty lounge when he challenges the other teachers to a contest of guessing the largest syllable word.  On the verge of Marcus potentially losing his job, Dina Delsanto (Binoche) begins her journey as the newly appointed honors art teacher.

Comic book fans, Dark Knight collectors, and DC fans everywhere can now speculate on how the young Bruce Wayne is going to pan out now that he and Selena Kyle have been cast for the Batman prequel series ‘Gotham‘ for Fox. Thirteen-year-old David Mazouz, co-star with Kiefer Sutherland in 2012’s ‘Touch‘, has been confirmed for the role of the young- eccentric-millionaire-orphan Bruce Wayne. Camren Bicondova, a newcomer to the film industry, is set to play the role of the highly skilled sticky-pawed Catwoman, a.k.a. Selena Kyle.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have been hearing for a while about a new installment of ‘Child’s Play’ along with a complete reboot of the franchise.  We even wrote a little bit about this ‘Curse of Chucky’ film a few weeks ago, which you can read HERE.  It looks like it will be direct-to-dvd, which is unfortunate, but any new Chucky is good, right?  I’ve been a huge fan of the ‘Child’s Play’ series since the first one came out in the 80’s, and even though the films have gotten much sillier, I still enjoy them.  And I’m so happy that Brad Dourif is once again returning to voice the killer doll.  Press release below.

‘Treme’ Returns for 3rd Season Sept. 23!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

First, the people came back. Then, the crime. Now, more than two years after the near death of a great city, the money is starting to arrive, which would sound like a solution if this were some place other than New Orleans, and this was some other era but America at the millennium. For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. However, little of what they can bring to bear yields a quick result, and nothing about New Orleans – its government, its police department and courtrooms, its school system – works as it should. Nothing is easy.  In the end, their only weapons are community. And culture.

Sam Raimi is developing Three TV Shows.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2010

Sam Raimi gave us the Evil Dead movies, Army of Darkness, Darkman, and the Spider-Man films to just name a few.


His production company, Stars Road is developing three different hourlong pilots for three different networks.


Deadline Hollywood says:


“The ABC project hails from Dee Johnson, with whom Zotnowski worked on The Good Wife. Last year, Johnson served as executive producer/showrunner on the first 13 episodes of the CBS legal drama. The new project centers on a top female prosecutor in Los Angeles, whom Zotnowski describes as a “female vigilante with a law license.”

The Fox project, Smokers, comes from comic book and TV writer Brian K. Vaughan, best known for creating the comic book series Y: The Last Man, and for his work as a writer on ABC’s Lost. The high-concept drama, based on an original idea by Vaughan, is about a documentary crew following working class heroes who exterminate alien threats in deep space.

The third project, set at Zotnowski’s former home, CBS, is Lancaster, from writer Andrew Lipsitz (CSI, CSI:NY). It centers on a Scotland yard detective who joins the LAPD. With broadcast selling season wrapping up, Stars Road is turning its sights on cable where it plans to pitch next.”


The “Smokers” project has got my attention.
