Hello, Jana here,

Community_title

Community‘. Yup, I’m going to throw in my two cents with the announcement that Yahoo has decided to prolong the show’s inevitable demise by giving it a location transplant. If network TV chooses to axe a program, there is still the chance that an online company can jump in with CPR and revive it. Yahoo has been wanting to share the success that Netflix, Amazon and Hulu have all enjoyed. Yahoo and Sony Pictures Television will stream a 13-episode sixth season of the ensemble comedy. Dan Harmon is carrying the flag as showrunner, once again. “I am very pleased that Community will be returning for its predestined sixth season on Yahoo,” Harmon said in a release announcing the deal. “I look forward to bringing our beloved NBC sitcom to a larger audience by moving it online. I vow to dominate our new competition. Rest easy, Big Bang Theory. Look out, Bang Bus!”

Film Review: Tatara Samurai!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Tatara_Samurai_860

The Martial Arts genre, or better known as “Black Belt Theater” has had a strong presence in the United States since the beginning of the 1970’s. The Asian film imports have gathered a legion of fans who appreciate the action dominance of some, or the more prowess components of others. In the new Japanese drama, ‘Tatara Samurai‘, Director Yoshinari Nishikôri respectably tries to incorporate both elements, but the outcome is an unfortunate sequence of sluggish storytelling, awful over-acting and combats so laughable, even Bruce Lee would shake his head in disdain.

A look at the personal and professional lives of a group of women who perform for a wrestling organization in Los Angeles. The series ought to do pretty well considering it’s linked to Jenji Kohan, creator of some pretty magnificent titles, such as ‘Weeds‘ and another Netflix original ‘Orange is the New Black‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

M. Night Shyamalan was the next greatest filmmaker in the world. With films like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs – the talented filmmaker was set to be the next Spielberg, Lucas, Scorsese, Hitchcock, and Gilliam combined into one person. It was working for him. Then, Shyamalan went on a “bender” and made a ton of shitty films, but I do believe this was a case of Hollywood taking control and not letting him do anything creative.

The trailer for ‘MENASHE’ is here.

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

menashe_still_sundance_-_publicity_-_h_2017

A24 does film right. Their up coming film ‘Menashe‘ looks so heart-warmingly good that I might have to see this film three times on opening night. This is a Yiddish-language film mostly and is set in the Hasidic neighborhood of New York that follows a man who recently lost his wife and looks to raise his son alone. There’s even a scene where a ton of Gefilte fish falls off a truck. I laughed out loud. Enjoy the trailer.

Film Review: ‘Patriots Day’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Dan M., here….

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-11-31-05-am

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was born in Massachusetts (moved in middle school) love all the sports teams and have close to 40 families members in and around the outskirts of Boston. The only reason I disclose this is because I watched the news closely during this whole ordeal, read two books on the events/survivors, and caught the excellent HBO doc that premiered late last year. I’m not an expert on the event but I feel like I know a bit more than a casual viewer. Most importantly I wasn’t there. I don’t know anyone who was lost. I can’t imagine what it is like to see a tragic event in your life monetized into a film so I am reviewing this strictly as a fan of movies and how it was portrayed as a movie. The politics, timing, and ramifications of turning events like this into films are for others to debate.

4k UHD Review: ‘Goodfellas’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

By the time 1990 came around, Martin Scorsese had already made several masterpieces in film, which continue to be praised and talked about to this day. With the likes of ‘Raging Bull‘, ‘Taxi Driver‘, and ‘The Last Waltz‘, we all knew that Scorsese was one of the finest filmmakers and storytellers around. Even with just those three previous films mentioned, you’d know you were in for a treat when Scorsese wanted to show you something. Then 1990 came around and Scorsese once again changed the film community with a movie called ‘Goodfellas‘, which was his big foray into the whole mafia genre.

ZOOLOGY is the story of Natasha, an aging and lonely woman who recaptures some of her youth via a relationship with a much younger man. For all intents and purposes, it’s a story we’ve seen many times before, but with one key exception.

Gene Wilder June 11, 1933 – August 29, 2016

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 29th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

gene-wilder-blazingsaddles-5

Gene Wilder passed away today at the age of 83. He is one of my favorite actors and he elicits a smile from me when I just see his picture. He is neck and neck with Robin Williams for being my favorite comedic actor and his death rocks the film community where he made some of his most lasting contributions.

Film Review: ‘Ghostbusters’ (2016)

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

ghostbusters-2016-cast-proton-packs-images

Paul Feig certainly has quite the resume. This writer/director/producer has recently made some of the funnier films, including ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘The Heat‘, ‘Spy‘, and let’s not forget the hit TV series ‘Freaks and Geeks‘. Feig knows comedy and how to cast his roles perfectly. Each one of those films and a tv show are spot on hilarious with charm and heart. This same filmmaker has pretty much done the impossible, which is revamp the iconic 1980’s film ‘Ghostbusters’. Even before the first trailer for the movie debuted online, there was a sea of online people who trashed the film even before seeing one single frame of the film. It became a whole thing where sexism became one of the issues here.

Film Review: ‘Intruder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 24th, 2016

Joel H., Here…

Screen Shot 2016-06-24 at 10.13.04 AM

It has to be a lot of fun to mess with the mind of an audience in filmmaking. Intruder, like many home-related thrillers, leaves me looking over my shoulder as much as any of them. While I know that noise I just heard in the other room is my washer wrapping up it’s final cycle, my mind instead immediately races to “WHAT COULD I MACGYVER AS A WEAPON IN HERE!?” Now that I have a straightened out paper clip taped to the end of my remote, let’s continue.
