Sep/2018

Written by: Bryan Kluger

The director who brought us ‘Gravity‘, ‘Children of Men‘, ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien‘, and the best Harry Potter film is now playing with the horror genre, which just excites me to the end of the Earth. You mean to tell me, that Alfonso Cuarón who has terrified us with outer space and women not having babies will take the horror genre on head first? I’m so in.

Hi Jana here,

 

ZOMBIELAND

Woody Harrelson has always had an in-demand acting career, but it seems that he was never so popular as he is now. Everywhere you look, things are turning up Woody. Harrelson joins the cast of ‘Triple Nine‘, a heist-thriller directed by John Hillcoat. Hillcoat brought us some massive hits like ‘The Road‘ and 2012’s massive hit ‘Lawless‘.

The_Boston_Strangler_Casey_Affleck_41024

Some people are fascinated by a moving film featuring struggling artists, sports stars, or the tragic events of the nuclear family. Some of us are enthralled by the twisted path of a demented and morally bankrupt serial killer. I fall into both categories, but I am really fascinated by serial killers. In fact, I wanted to be a serial killer tracker for the FBI at one point. Clearly, I was influenced by James Patterson’s Alex Cross novels. I did NOT like the movies based on his works, though. I did like Morgan Freeman as Alex Cross, but I digress.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Casey Affleck has been developing a project with fellow screenwriter Chuck Maclean about the infamous Boston Strangler, who terrorized the Boston area in the 1960s.  Casey and Chuck sold the story to Warner Bros. and is currently titled ‘Boston Strangler‘ and will center around a group of detectives known as the Strangler Squad who hunt for the killer.  Affleck will most likely star in the film and will also be an executive producer.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Ghost Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion is written by Audrey Evans.)

Fresh off the wings of his most commercial movie to date, Pete’s Dragon (2016), Director David Lowery floats back to his Indie roots with the dreamy fantasy drama, ‘A Ghost Story.’  This ponderous portrait of life, loss and existence will undoubtedly make art enthusiasts coo over its alluring framework and vision, but for those anticipating an intensely haunting experience, be prepared for more mood than material. Time is of the essence in this story; the right state of mind and patience will reward you, that is, if you’re still alert before the leisurely picture reaches its point.

Film Review: ‘A Monster Calls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 4th, 2017

Dan M., here…

maxresdefault

A Monster Calls’ is a kid version of ‘Manchester by the Sea’. I mean that in the nicest way possible. As one of 15 alleged movie fans in America who didn’t love ‘Manchester by the Sea’ (I hope this doesn’t hurt my review street cred) it is important for me to compare these two films, which at their core, deal with loss, grief, and growing up. The amazing part for me is that I think ‘A Monster Calls’ tackles these themes and issues in a more effective manner.

Film Review: ‘Triple 9’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 26th, 2016

Beka P., Here…

maxresdefault

Hold onto your seats! Triple 9 is a non-stop action-packed film that definitely delivers. Within the first ten minutes you are sucked into a high intensity bank heist that rolls right into one of the best get away scenes I’ve seen in a long time. It’s so intense that you aren’t really sure where the rest of the movie is going to go, but have no fear, there’s plenty of nail biting left to do.

Film Review: ‘[The Finest Hours]’!!

by Janet White on Jan 30th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The Finest Hours Rescue

The Finest Hours opens on the hood of a 50s vehicle and a lot of snow.  Two men, Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his friend, are driving to meet two ladies for a blind date.  The apprehensive Webber meets his match when he lays eyes on Smokey the Bear (it will make sense if you see the film).  Miriam (Holliday Grainger) is Webber’s spitfire love interest.   Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

finesthourgallery

Disney just gave us a little more than a peek into ‘The Finest Hours‘. It’s a drama, it’s a thriller and it looks intense, intense as ‘A Perfect Storm‘ for my money. To go further with the comparison, they’re both based on real life events. Starring Chris Pine, Ben Foster, Eric Bana, Holliday Grainger and Casey Affleck.

Film Review: ‘Out of The Furnace’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

out-of-the-furnace-harrelson-bale-0782013-101738

Scott Cooper’s second film ‘Out of The Furnace‘ has a lot going for it. The script and especially its amazing A-List cast might draw out a decent crowd, but a sour taste might be left in your mouth after the end credits start to roll. Cooper’s first film was ‘Crazy Heart‘ and had some similar somber tones to it as this film does, but it’s nowhere near how brutal ‘Out of the Furnace‘ truly is. But what makes this blue-collar flick ultimately suffer is the amount of filler that has nothing to do with actual premise of the movie and keep the film from moving forward at a steady pace.

‘Tower Heist’ Bluray and DVD Announced!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2012

Hi Bryan Here….

The Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy comedy caper has just been announced for home video.  ‘Tower Heist’ will be released on February 21st, 2012 on Bluray and DVD.  From what it looks like, it will come with a digital copy as well as the ultra violet digital copy.  Not sure if this will happen, but usually its either one way or the other.  Not both.  I am very much against the ultra violet streaming service.  Just give me my digital copy on my computer.  I do not want to sign up with a company and stream my movie.  Just get rid of the ultra violet all together.  Some extras include: 2 alternated endings, bloopers, and behind the scenes features.

Hi Bryan Here….

“The workers at a posh Central Park condominium plot to steal back their pensions from the thieving Wall Street billionaire who’s about to get away with the ultimate white-collar crime in this heist comedy starring Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy. Financial giant Arthur Shaw (Alan Alda) has just been placed under house arrest in his luxury New York City penthouse for cleaning out his investors to the tune of two billion dollars. Meanwhile, on the complete opposite end of the financial spectrum, Josh Kovacs (Stiller) earns a modest living as the manager of the luxurious building where Shaw resides. Upon learning that the tower staffers who entrusted Shaw with their retirement funds are about to lose their life earnings, and that the thief will likely get off scot-free, Josh recruits crafty swindler Slide (Murphy) to help get their money back. Though the security in Arthur’s condo is unusually tight, between Josh’s knowledge of the building and Slide’s sleight of hand, this ragtag gang of criminals might just have what it takes to get the job done.”

Bluray/DVD Releases for the 4th Week of November!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2010

Hi Bryan Here…

The biggest shopping day is upon us and the holiday shopping spree season has already begun.  I am kinda disappointed in this lack of releases this week.  I figured the studios would be pushing their biggest titles this week because it is the largest shopping weekend and weekend of the year.  But they just sort of half-assed it.  Maybe because of all the incredible sales on past releases that have started and will continue on through Monday.  Oh well.  As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!
