Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #8!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m sure there are going to be a ton of Martin Scorsese directed scenes in this column, but the first one is definitely from Casino, which had Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci come together for a third time to make a film again. With the huge success of Goodfellas, De Niro and Pesci basically play very similar characters to that film, but this one is set in Las Vegas in the Tangiers casino, which is a fake casino, but based off the real life people and Italian mafia they were all connected to. Casino is a fascinating film and one of the better gangster movies of all time.

Comic Con: Dallas Fan Days 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 9th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

cc011

As a fangirl, I love comics and dressing up. I love being someone else for one day and let’s not lie, Comic Con is my mother ship. This weekend was no exception. I spent two days basking the glory and adoration that was formerly Sci-Fi Expo and is now Fan Days 2.0! It’s my family, and walking through the doors of the Irving Convention Center is always like being at home. It is very much like a space ship or the Sandcrawler from ‘Star Wars’, with its four levels, an over powering awning, and yet, when the parking attendant took mine and Taylor’s (lead camera) money, we were excited and ready to get out of the car and start mingling with everyone and see what Fan Days 2015 had to offer. I decided to go ahead and dress up, because hey, who doesn’t like it when press looks like someone else? My costume of choice? Totally obscure and amazing! I was ready to go as Special Agent Dale Cooper, from Twin Peaks. I even brought along a thermos of “Damn fine coffee,” and a bag of donuts. Dead Laura Palmer would be waiting for me at the convention, for sure!

Film Review: ‘3 Days To Kill’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

kevin-costner-is-in-killer-mode-in-3-days-to-kill

With characters named ‘The Wolf’, ‘The Albino’, ‘The Accountant’, and ‘The Guido’, you can’t expect too much quality from ‘3 Days To Kill‘, which was directed by McG (the guy who brought us the ‘Charlie’s Angels‘ movies and who at one point, wanted to cast Beyonce as Lois Lane in an abandoned remake of ‘Superman‘ several years ago). Needless to say, McG, hasn’t done anything of interest ever in his career with the exception of giving a little bit of money to television shows like ‘Supernatural‘ and ‘Chuck‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 20th Century Foc animation team and Blue Sky Studios are developing a big film franchise for Charles Schulz’s ‘Peanuts’.  The team behind ‘Ice Age’ has already set a release date for the first film, which will be Thanksgiving day in 2015, so we have a bit of time.  More than three years in fact.  That date celebrates the 65th anniversary of the original comic strip and the 50th anniversary of the ‘Charlie Brown Chistmas’ special according to Deadline.

Charlie Sheen and Lionsgate have made a deal to bring the ‘Anger Management’ to television with Sheen set to star.  ‘Anger Management’ is based on the 2003 Adam Sandler/Jack Nicholson comedy.  In Sheen’s deal, he will own a considerable stake in the show.  The show will follow a “mild-mannered, non-confrontational man who is ordered to attend group anger management sessions led by a therapist who could probably use some anger management himself.”

Hey guys, Jana here,

Blu-ray Review: Fist Fight

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 3.31.40 PM

THE FILM

Before I get into this, I need to say that I’m a huge fan of Charlie Day and Ice Cube. They have a lot of talent that spans different genres and keep delivering on each film they make. That’s not the case with Fist Fight though, which I must say is NOT their fault. Ice Cube is great in his role as Mr. Strickland, a high-school history teacher who is not above of cursing in class or taking an axe to a student’s desk with a room full of students. On the other hand is Charlie Day playing the straight and narrow guy who hates confrontation named Andy Campbell who seems to be the world’s coolest English teacher, but is lost in this movie.

THE FILM

Robots, monsters, and Ron Perlman. Oh my. Director Guillermo Del Toro has given us a movie that we’ve all wanted to see since we were five years old. In an action-packed and brilliant special effects film, we have giant 30-story robots fighting vicious mega monsters on Earth. Guillermo was the perfect person for this project as he is a fan of genre films and can tell a great story with flawless structure and good acting, while mixing in loud and vibrating action sequences. ‘Pacific Rim‘ movies fast and will keep you on your toes till the very end.

Great news today from FXX, it has renewed ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ for not one, but two more seasons! That’s right, seasons 13 and 14 are a lock. Having a 13th season, ties it’s longevity with ‘King of the Hill‘ and ‘NCIS‘. Moving into the 14th season it joins 5 shows that have held that honor including ‘Bonanza‘, ‘Dallas‘, and ‘Knots Landing‘. If we’re talking the longest running series, ‘ER‘ clocks in at 15 seasons, ‘Lassie‘ comes in at 17 seasons with ‘Gunsmoke‘ coming in at second longest with 20 seasons. Who takes the top spot in longest running series? The Fox favorite ‘The Simpsons‘ leads the pack with 27 seasons!

I knew there was some gas left in this engine and it looks like the Wagon Queen Family Truckster Station Wagon is rolling on with another sequel. This is going to be the second film in the family of Vacation movies that John Hughes hasn’t written. He passed away in 2009, making the Christmas Vacation his last film in the series.  The chain consisting of ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation‘, ‘National Lampoon’s European Vacation‘, follow that up with the holiday staple ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘ and finally a last ditch effort to keep the films going with ‘National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation‘. Legendary 80’s filmmaker and writer John Hughes gave us the characters that filled these movies with some of the most dysfunctional and hilarious characters in film history.

‘Horrible Bosses 2’ Trailer Is Here!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 5th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

HORRIBLE-BOSSES-2

 

We all remember ‘Horrible Bosses‘ from a few years ago. It was an absolute laugh factory and was worth it’s weight in gold with some of the characters it brought us. Jamie Foxx was amazing in his role as the group of would-be-hitmen’s advisor. Then how can we forget the role that made me absolutely detest Colin Farrell? I honestly didn’t think it would be possible until I saw that film. It was witty, (mostly) intelligent, and dead-to-rights hilarious. How could there be anything better? A sequel.

Hello, Jana here,

FX has done exceptionally well for themselves with regards to successful original programming. Shows like ‘Justified‘, ‘Sons of Anarchy‘, ‘American Horror Story‘ and ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia‘ have become proven fan favorites. and mark pretty high viewer numbers that definitely make this network a proven competitor in the battle for a target audience.

The upcoming ‘Lego Movie‘ looks Incredible and hilarious. I didn’t expect it to be this good, but man, after watching this trailer, I cannot wait to see this. Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Colbie Smolders, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson, and Charlie Day are just some of the few talented actors lending their voices to this movie. And man, it looks funny.

 Horrible Bosses

I loved ‘Horrible Bosses‘. I’m a fan of just about anything funny and Bosses did not disappoint. So I’m kind of excited about the news that there is a ‘Horrible Bosses 2‘ set to begin production at the beginning of November. Although I have to wonder where the story line is going to go with Jennifer Aniston and Kevin Spacey. Colin Farrell is not listed in the cast list for HB2 so we just have to assume that Bobby Pellett is still in prison.

Guillermo Del Toro’s ‘Pacific Rim’ Will Be in 3D!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 14th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Guillermo Del Toro’s epic film ‘Pacific Rim’ is receiving the up-convert to 3D. In past interviews with Guillermo about this film being 3D, he has always said it won’t be.  He did not want it to be 3D.  However, the scope of this film is supposed to be HUGE, and with 3D ticket prices higher than standard ticket prices, this film could make more money.  That’s probably what the studio execs are thinking.

As they say, some things never change. So prepare for more depraved schemes, half-baked arguments and absurdly underhanded plots to subvert one another.

Cowdefender Here,

I went in expecting a slightly above average comedy. I am a huge Bateman fan and I have no issues with anyone else in this film. It exceeded those medium expectations. It was fairly consistently funny throughout and didn’t feel horribly derivative at any point. They kept it almost entirely above base (most rated R comedies seem to need to throw in a wet far at some point).

Film Review: ‘Arrival’!

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.

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

Epic List Of The Top 10 Road Trip Flicks!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 3rd, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

tumblr_nx5wmzgYvb1qewpgqo1_500

Summer means a lot to me, there’s baseball, which I waxed pretty poetic about in last week’s Top 10 Baseball Movies post. There’s fishing, the fourth of July, a multi-colored tongue from Otter Pops, and the all important road trip. Your trip can be a short jaunt to the lake or it can be a days long event that usually culminates in an epic destination – Wally World, anyone? Whether you trip on your own, with your friends or with your family, there’s something wonderful about having a full tank of gas, a stereo full of tunes and the open road in front of you. Depending on who you’re with it can either feel like a hostage situation or a relaxing break from the weekly drag. Most good road trips feel like a bit of both, not to mention the longing for the comfort that is your home toilet.

I’m gonna count down my top 10 movies that feature a road trip. Strap in, kick on the A/C and let the lull of the road below you relaxes your worries. This was not an easy list to winnow down to only 10 with a few honorable mentions. I left off the obvious ‘Thelma and Louise‘, they’re best friends, they kill someone and drive off a cliff. Yeah, I didn’t give you a spoiler alert there because if you haven’t seen this movie by now, you were never going to. Some road trip movies are better than others and we had differing opinions from each other making this list. So read along and tell me where we agree or disagree or what I’ve left out.

AMC has just picked up a third season of ‘Fear the Walking Dead‘ less than a week after this current second season started. The first season had six great episodes and this current second season will have a whopping 15 episodes. This show is a spinoff of ‘The Walking Dead‘ and instead of taking place in the aftermath of the zombie apocalypse, it focuses on the start of it in Los Angeles. The third season will start in 2017, I imagine around the same time as now.

When Guillermo Del Toro makes a movie, you pay attention, but a ticket, strap yourself in the seat, and prepare your eyeholes for something that is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you.

That brings us to his latest masterpiece of cinema, ‘Crimson Peak‘.

Where before there were only little bits of chatter, we’ve got some serious movement now, a director is circling the project.

Bryan Kluger’s Best/Worst of 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

1140-mfg-2015-Readers-Choice-Best-Movie-poll-collage-promo.imgcache.rev1449178940055.web.722.414

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 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 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. 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.

Hillary Thomas’ Top 5 Films and Best TV Shows of 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

Best2015_660

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say? James Wallace knows that I like (“Sixteen Candles”, “Aliens”, “Big Trouble In Little China”, “True Grit”, and “Conan” just to name a few), but I did see a “Few Good Movies.”

Film Review: ‘Crimson Peak’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen-Shot-2015-05-13-at-10.24.32-AM-620x400

When Guillermo Del Toro makes a movie, you pay attention, but a ticket, strap yourself in the seat, and prepare your eyeholes for something that is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. With a resume that includes ‘Pan’s Labyrinth‘, ‘Hellboy I & II‘, ‘Blade II‘, ‘Pacific Rim‘, and ‘The Devil’s Backbone‘, you know for sure, you’re in for something special when Del Toro is involved. That brings us to his latest masterpiece of cinema, ‘Crimson Peak‘. Now I know that the trailers for ‘Crimson Peak‘ paint a picture that makes this look like a straight horror film, which is not the case here.

Film Review: ‘Run All Night’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Run All Night Movie (2)

Darkness gives way to a misty lake.  From above we close in on an injured man sprawled out on the ground.  Jimmy is floating in and out of consciousness…a voiceover speaks on what goes through the mind of the near dead and suddenly he hears a gunshot, a curious opening and introduction of Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson).  Jimmy is a former mob hit man that has become an island to himself through his long history of foul play.  Estranged from Jimmy is his only child, Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman).  Mike is a husband, father, and big brother/boxing coach, respectable personas that Jimmy forsook long ago.  Finding himself caught in the web of a murderous cokehead, Danny Maguire (Boyd Holbrook), and his mob boss father, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Mike turns to the last person he ever wanted to rely on, Jimmy.  Run All Night takes the viewer on a crossing of evading death and the bonding of two hearts.

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-sniper-6

 

In the world of film, there are specific genres that stand out for me and one of those is war movies. I love different titles for a variety of reasons, the story, or even an actor, in this category there is one primary theme that ties each film together – heroes. Their outstanding courage is what gives us that lump in our throats and a swell of patriotic pride that causes us to lift these characters, real or imagined, to elevated heights. It takes a special kind of person to be a hero, I know I couldn’t do it, but I am eternally grateful for the men and women that take up that mantle and defend the lives and freedoms I hold so dearly.

Fox Tells Us When Some of Their Big Films Are Coming Out!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

Fox has announced some dates and even changed some dates for a few of their upcoming big budget films. It’s not too uncommon for studios to change dates and announce particular dates so far in advance, but with such big money makes, there has to be some sort of reason for the dates, considering over the next few years, Fox will have to compete with a hell of a lot of big movies from other studios.

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.

Disney has made a name for itself with family-friendly entertainment. It’s got a logo that any toddler recognizes and parents can guarantee that if it’s bearing the Disney name it’s a safe bet that at least someone in the family will love it. I’m not saying Disney is getting stale, they are having to work harder than ever now to remain atop the family pyramid of entertainment since there are so many other contenders in that category now.

So we’ve known for a while that there is going to be a re-make of the Marvel superhero ‘Daredevil‘. We know that Marvel has partnered with Netflix to bring us a 13-episode drama based on the comic book stories of the blind, lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen.

We’ve known for a while that Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) is going to play the eponymous Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and that Vincent D’Onofrio (‘Law and Order‘)  is going to play the juxtapositional Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. Today, we’ve gotten some more casting news. Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica from ‘True Blood‘ has been given the role of Karen Page.

In honor of this time, here’s a list of the most ‘Murican movies ever. This isn’t a list of patriotic movies (though some of these could be seen as patriotic), so you aren’t going to see Saving Private Ryan or other true patriotic movies on here.

 What do you do when a Marvel movie flops with a more deafening thud than Crystal Pepsi? You re-tool it, sell it to Netflix where it becomes an episodic challenge. Where the feature film had big budgets and big stars to it’s credit, this series is going to attempt to make more out of less. Daredevil fans everywhere will have an opinion on what they expect from the new show. My expectations for this show is that it NOT suck. Not asking much, just the lack of major suckage.

Re-Cast: ‘The Three Amigos’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

three-amigos-01

Here is our 34th episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘ and with one of our infamous Re-Cast segments.  We had a lot of fun with this one. We went ahead and recast ‘The Three Amigos‘, which starred the funniest three people in the world – Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase. It’s damn near impossible to remake and even recast this film, because it is indeed perfect, but in this day and age with so many reboots and remakes, it just might happen. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us? We hope to see this at least on the Broadway stage sometime soon as a musical. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Film Review: ‘Finding Vivian Maier’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 10th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

FindingVivianMaier_Facebook

When I first heard of ‘Finding Vivian Maier‘, I was intrigued by the story line. Once I looked it up and saw Phil Donahue was in it, I was even more so interested. I wanted to see how the path of these two people intersected. Vivian Maier was an extremely reclusive artist. The term artist was probably never really used to describe her during her lifetime but has become a posthumous descriptor most strangers associate her with.

Director Charlie McDowell and writer Justin Lader are newcomers to the film world, and with their incredible movie ‘The One I Love‘, I expect big, bright futures for the both of them. I left the theater with a big smile on my face and couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed what I just saw on-screen. It took me back to the first time I saw my first ‘Twilight Zone‘ episode, and how much that transformed me into wanting to make movies and write mini-scripts with my dad’s old dinosaur video camera that sat on my small shoulder.

Warner Bros. Is Developing ‘Space Jam 2’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Space Jam

 Over the weekend, a very trusted news source in Hollywood called Deadline, ran a news story that said, “Lebron James was going to star in the upcoming ‘Space Jam‘ sequel. The article mentioned producers and a studio, which was Warner Bros. A day or so later, Lebron and a couple of people on the NBA side and close to Lebron’s camp refuted the story and basically said this wasn’t happening. But the wording they used was confusing. The sources said that there have been no “substantive discussions”, which means, the deals are not made yet, however talks have happened. It seems like Warner Bros. is definitely making a ‘Space Jam‘ sequel, and they want  Lebron to star in it, but again, no deals have been made yet. In my personal opinion, I think Shaq should star rather than Lebron. Or just get Jordan back. He’s not doing anything. Below is the original story.

Well of course ‘The Walking Dead‘ was renewed for a fifth season. The recent fourth season opener broke cable records with over 16 million people tuning in. Zombies are in this year. And it seems they are not going away anytime soon. AMC announced today that the fifth season has been ordered. AMC president Charlie Collier said, “We are very happy to make what has to be one of the most anti-climactic renewal announcements ever:  The Walking Dead is renewed for a fifth season.  This is a show that has erased traditional distinctions between cable and broadcast. Its expanding base of passionate fans has grown every season, most recently – and most notably – with the season four premiere earlier this month, which broke viewership records for the series and became the biggest non-sports telecast in cable history. On behalf of the incredible team on both sides of the camera, thank you to the fans and here’s to more Dead.”

Are you a Betty, Joan or a Peggy? How about a Don, Pete or a Roger? These names will have more in common with names like Rachel, Monica, Phoebe, Chandler, Joey and Ross. Once the final season of ‘Mad Men‘ is behind us, we will all have to grieve over our lost favorites just as we did when hits like ‘Friends‘, ‘Seinfeld‘ and ‘M*A*S*H‘ finished their successful runs. Luckily, we’re going to be let down easy. AMC announced today that the final season of the Lionsgate series ‘Mad Men‘ will be expanded to 14 episodes and equally portioned with seven episodes airing in spring of 2014 (“The Beginning”) and the final seven episodes of this iconic series (“The End of an Era”) airing in the spring of 2015.

Hi, Bryan Here….

the_heat_bullock_mccarthy

Director Paul Feig is on a roll these days. From his time spent on the hit show ‘Freaks and Geeks‘ and ‘Undeclared‘, to his big box office smash comedy ‘Bridesmaids‘, the comedic director has not missed a step with this laugh-out-loud action-comedy, ‘The Heat‘. Sandra Bullock’s anal-retentive and proper FBI character mixes very well with Melissa McCarthy’s rough and rowdy street cop character perfectly and packs enough laughs for two whole movies. With the quick-witted and vulgar dialogue, and the chemistry between these two outlandish characters, I found myself laughing from start to finish so much, that I had tears in my eyes. Much like ‘Bridesmaids‘, I expect this McCarthy/Feig team to score big at the box office again this weekend.

Martin McDonagh’sSeven Psychopaths’ is highly entertaining.  I was a huge fan of McDonagh’s ‘In Bruges’ and have since then been wanting more from him.  It’s been four years since ‘In Bruges’, which was the last thing McDonagh did, and I can safely say that McDonagh’s writing and directing has only gotten better.  McDonagh is the next Tarantino and ’Seven Psychopaths’ is an excellent film.

The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ is hands down one of my favorite films of the year.  I haven’t seen such a genuine coming of age high school movie since the late John Hughes was making his films about being a teenager.  Director and writer Stephen Chbosky hit a home run with  ’The Perks of Being A Wallflower’.  I haven’t fallen in love with characters like this since HBO’s ‘Six Feet Under’ was on television.  I did not want this film to end.

I never thought I’d write this sentence, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently in talks to star in the reboot of Troma’sToxic Avenger’ film. This project will be introduced to potential buys at Cannes this year of all places. I didn’t think Cannes would take any Troma film. But it looks like this re-imaging of ‘Toxic Avenger‘ will be a big budget project. Steve Pink is taking the reins of the film. Pink directed ‘Hot Tub Time Machine‘ and will direct the sequel. This is odd, but amazing news.

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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Stoker-1993581-header

Since 2003, Park Chan-wook has been one of my favorite directors of cinema, as I saw his film ‘Oldboy‘. I was in complete awe of that movie and immediately had to find out what else he had done. Upon some research, I ended up buying ‘Sympathy for Mr. Vengenace‘ and loved that flick. Since then I have tried to see everything he has made including ‘Lady Vengeance‘ and his vampire film, ‘Thirst‘. Now, all of these films have been made in Korea with English subtitles, but Park now has made his first North American film title ‘Stoker‘, and proves the prolific director still has what it takes to be at the top of his trade.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Prometheus’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

“In space no one can hear you scream.”

We have all been hearing about a movie called ‘Prometheus’ for sometime now, and all of us fans have been trying to piece the puzzle together on what it has to do with Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ film.  Since Scott directed ‘Prometheus’ and the original ‘Alien’ film, there has to be some sort of connection from what we have seen from the trailers, right?  The filmmakers told us that ’Prometheus’ would be a prequel to the ‘Alien’ film.  After seeing ’Prometheus’, I can say that it’s a very early prequel.  I’m  certainly happy Scott returned to this universe, because the ‘Alien’ franchise has been in a state of decay for a number of years starting with the 4th installment and then onto the ‘Alien vs. Predator’ series.  So, I was truly hoping to get an original film, but with strong ties to the ‘Alien’ franchise.  The question is, did it work?

Film Review: ‘Red Dawn’

Hi, Bryan Here….

I admit, I was a bit apprehensive heading into watching this remake of the 1984 action film that starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Harry Dean Stanton, and Jennifer Grey.  The 80’s film was a big hit and is still good today. John Milius ,the director of the original film, made an imprint on the minds of the youth back then with a ‘what if’ scenario and a heck of a fun film.  This remake, while it is certainly very cheesy and awkwardly bad in tiny moments, the overall picture is a fine and worth-while remake despite its many faults.

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ is hands down one of my favorite films of the year.  I haven’t seen such a genuine coming of age high school movie since the late John Hughes was making his films about being a teenager.  Director and writer Stephen Chbosky hit a home run with  ‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’.  I haven’t fallen in love with characters like this since HBO’s ‘Six Feet Under’ was on television.  I did not want  ‘The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ to end.

2012 Emmy Award Winners!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Below is the list of the winners for the 2012 Prime-Time Emmy Award Winners.  I don’t  see how ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Two and Half Men’ win anything.  They shouldn’t win any kind of award when they go up against shows like ‘Mad Men’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Breaking Bad’.  The Emmy judges need to be fired and never allowed to pick winners ever again.  However, much congratulations to ‘Homeland’, ‘Downton Abbey’, Aaron Paul, ‘Veep’, and ‘American Horror Story’
