GEMINI MAN – Film Review!

by Janet White on Oct 10th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A solid yet original action film is hard to find. Leave it to master cinematographer, Ang Lee, to fill the void. With Gemini Man, the virtual pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow, viewers will be wowed by the uniquely choreographed and shot action sequences. When Henry Brogan (Will Smith) can no longer view his visage in the mirror, it is definitely time to hang up the sniper rifle. However, when you are the best assassin in the world, can you just stop? Henry thought so. His employer, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and someone he doesn’t suspect beg to differ. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

Matt Damon’s return to the Jason Bourne franchise was an iffy issue if Paul Greengrass wasn’t returning to direct, as well. Luckily, both announced their return last year and the cast has been filling in steadily, since then. Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander are  slated for the flick and new waves are being made today as one of the villains was announced.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Valerian-Comic-Book-Luc-Besson

Empire of a Thousand Planets‘ is a French comic book series that began in 1971 and introduced the world to the adventurous Valérian who uses the basic concept of spacetime and travels the universe through space and time with his companion, Laureline. Think somewhat of a French ‘Doctor Who‘, if you will. Director Luc Besson (‘The Fifth Element‘) fell in love with the comic series as a child and announced that this will be his next project.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE SERIES

It’s sad to see this amazing gangster show come to an end. It’s been a great five years, and this last season did a lot of things right in regards to wrapping up story lines and character arcs. I remember watching the first episode, which was directed by Martin Scorsese and thinking this is one of the better pilot episodes I’ve ever seen. I still think that to this day. There have been some great characters over the years, and it was sad to see how some of them ended up, but make no mistake, this fifth and final season hit its mark. HBO shortened this final season to only eight episodes and focused on wrapping up each character with an emphasis on Nucky Thompson’s (Steve Buscemi) childhood, upbringing, and how he became who he is.

Film Review: ‘Sin City 2: A Dame To Kill For’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

sin-city-2-a-dame-to-kill-for-eva-green-ava-lord

Second verse, same as the first. It’s been almost ten years since Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller brought us the noir-soaked graphic novels known to comic book fans around the world as ‘Sin City‘, which was created by Miller himself. This seedy, ultra violent, and nasty underworld, where crime is rampant and the bad guys end up on top of this booze drenched and drug induced city is the backdrop for some of the most entertaining characters in ever to come out of a graphic novel.

If you’re not familiar with the name Idris Elba (‘Pacific Rim‘, ‘Thor‘) by now, you’ve probably just thawed out from the large block of ice you’ve been encased in for the last thousand years. If that’s the case, grab a hair dryer and keep reading.

Film Review: ‘Words and Pictures’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 4th, 2014

Janet W. Here…

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.

The current theme with television series these days is they are either pointless, mind-numbing, IQ lowering reality shows, or big cable network sponsored in-depth series. I’m glad that it seems the sweeping series are becoming more the norm. Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead is adding to his stable of excellent tv offerings with Outcast. No, this isn’t going to be about a leper that is ostracized from the community, or even more zombies that are a threat to the brain functioning population. This time  we step into the world of exorcisms.

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.
