Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Yes, we are all a bit nervous when it comes to video game movies. There is good reason for that too, since most of them are fairly terrible, even though some make a ton of money at the box office. The ‘Tomb Raider‘ films with Angelina Jolie made a ton of money as did the many sequels of ‘Resident Evil‘. Let’s not forget the recent ‘Warcraft‘ movie or ‘The Angry Birds‘ movie either – all of which made a big box office splash, despite the quality of story and performances.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Creed’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

Another year, another ‘Rocky‘ movie. Some of you might be saying, “When is enough, enough?” More times than not, you might be right with any string of sequels that goes back the third installment, particularly with the ‘Rocky‘ franchise. Sure, the first ‘Rocky‘ film from 1976 was spectacular, and arguably one of the better movies ever made. It even won a ton of Oscars that year, including Best Picture. ‘Rocky II‘ came shortly after, which was still excellent, but starting with ‘Rocky III‘, things got silly and the films lost some focus. Still, audiences world wide packed theater houses to see the Italian Stallion (Sylvester Stallone) underdog his way up to the top, never quitting and giving his best. It’s a great message.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Screen Shot 2016-02-01 at 8.00.55 AM

If you’ve got an itch to get in the ring, Rocky-style, you can either start swallowing raw eggs, punching sides of beef and running like a marathoner, or you can have some pizza, stay in your jammie pants and hit play on your remote bringing ‘Creed‘ to your home entertainment center. I’m not saying what my plans are, just know I’m in my pj’s and I have pizza within reach, go figure.

Check out the first image of Michael Fassbender as Callum Lynch in the hotly anticipated, and sure to be ridiculed by video game faithfuls, ‘Assassin’s Creed‘. The film is coming to theaters on December 21, 2016, still more than a year away, but close enough to release a small glimpse of what’s in store for us.

Hi, Bryan Here….

In what might be the best news of the day, MGM has set director Ryan Coogler along with actor Michael B. Jordan in developing a spinoff ‘Rocky‘ film called ‘Creed‘. Don’t worry, Sly Stallone will reprise Rocky again as a retired boxer, now trainer for Apollo Creed’s grandson, which will be played by Jordan. Coogler and Jordan most recently collaborated on the amazing film ‘Fruitvale Station‘, which you can read that review HERE.

Film Review: ‘Men in Black: International’!!

by Janet White on Jun 24th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

From the mind of Lowell Cunningham, creator of the strangest host of characters fighting for the protection of Earth comes a new installment of the Men in Black series which has wowed audiences with its creative creatures, mind-blowing tech and a star-studded cast of exceptional caliber (Tommy Lee Jones, Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, etc.) since 1997. In theaters now is the latest sequel to this comedic sci-fi action film, Men in Black: International. Jones, Smith, and the others did not return, but the cast is as stellar as the visual effects. Although Barry Sonnenfeld, director of the first three films, did not come back to bring this story to life, F. Gary Gray did a spectacular job. The audience was thrust into a world that seemed so possible. Men in Black: International is awe-inspiringly shot with unique angles and smooth scene and mechanical transitions throughout.

Pet Sematary 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 10th, 2019

Pet Sematary‘ comes back to life with a brand new 2160p 4K UHD image with Dolby Vision and looks and sounds excellent. It’s like watching the film all over again. Stephen King’s excellent novel was adapted in 1989 by director Mary Lambert that focuses on the Creed family moving to the country for a better life where loss, death and family all play a gruesome and horrific part. There are new bonus features as well as some vintage extras imported over here. What an amazing release. Highly Recommended!

‘Pet Sematary (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2019

The ‘Pet Sematary’ remake is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Since Stephen King’sIT‘ remake was a highly commercial and critical success, film studios are scrambling as fast as they can to remake all of Stephen King’s work to cash in on that newly found interest once again. The latest remake in the King universe is ‘Pet Sematary‘, from relatively new filmmakers Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Now I remember reading King’s book long ago, but I admit it has been a while since I read the whole thing, however, the important plot details and themes still resonated clearly in present day. Mary Lambert’s vision in the original 1989 movie adaptation still holds up as well in most sequences, taking the tone of King’s book and translating it well to film. There are still iconic scenes that scare me in the dark from that original movie. With this new 2019 remake though, everything looks cheap, including the scares, which come across as silly and laughable, and is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Blu-ray Review: Black Panther!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

THE FILM


Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

Dan Moran’s ‘Black Panther’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

Admittedly, the easiest narrative for Black Panther reviews is that it is a “game-changer”, “important”, “redefines hero”, etc. Those narratives and feelings aren’t wrong. I think Black Panther is one of Marvel’s best stand-alone hero films. It is right behind The Winter Soldier and the original Iron Man for me. In a few years it may even eclipse those two as the distance and impact it has going forward is felt. I believe the cultural and racial themes of this film are well thought out, focused, bold, and sobering. To be perfectly honest I don’t feel comfortable writing about that aspect of the film in depth. I’m a 32 year old goofy white guy who is not a good enough writer to navigate that territory, plus I lack the experiences that would make my take worth reading. There are some incredible writers who have written on the overall cultural impact of (essentially) an all-black cast superhero film and I encourage all of you to seek those pieces out because they are worth your time. My review is going to focus on just how badass this movie is.
