Film Review: ‘Dallas Buyers Club’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

dallas-buyers-club-movie-photo-6

Jean-Marc Vallee’s ‘Dallas Buyers Club’ is a fresh take on the recognized AIDS plot, complete with a knockout script, and some amazing performances by Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. This true-life narrative feature about Ron Woodroof, a Dallas native straight man who is diagnosed with HIV in the 80s is is not as down-trodden as it might seem at first glance. I’m sure McConaughey’s name and creepy weight-loss, which was widely reported in the news will draw out a decent crowd, but this little Indie film won’t be able to compete with the likes of superheroes, but it damn sure deserves it.

Dallas Buyer’s Club is a semi-biographical film about Ron Woodroof, a tough as hell, alpha male within his pack, womanizing, hard drinking, fast livin’ Texan.  He is the man you think about when you hear a Johnny Cash song.  Crass redneck, part time bigot, full time cowboy.

Film Review: ‘Gold’!!

by Janet White on Jan 27th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Gold - Ramirez, McConaughey & Howard

 

A prospector… Gold Rush pioneers or Yosemite Sam have nothing on the belief of Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey). Kenny comes from a prestigious line of miners. His grandfather founded Washoe Mining Co. and built a sterling reputation until his death. Under Kenny’s leadership, the company suffered a plummet in profits. Repeatedly shunned by many investors, he hunted for new opportunities to pump life back in the Washoe name. All Kenny had in the world was Kay (Bryce Dallas Howard) who gives new meaning to the phrase “stand by your man.” Suddenly, Kenny sees the pathway to his future in a dream. Along with the scientific expertise of Mike Acosta (Edgar Ramírez), Washoe’s blood turns red and hot. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Demolition’!!

by Janet White on Apr 8th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Demolition - Davis During

Demolition, a comedic drama, begins with a man, Davis Mitchell (Jake Gyllenhaal), who loses his wife, Julia (Heather Lind), within the opening scenes. When I initially was given this assignment, I wondered, “How could a tragedy be made well into a comedy?” I will say that Jean-Marc Vallée held it together.   Read the rest of this entry »

William H. Macy has proven he is a success in the acting world, but it’s his directing muscle that he’s working on in the upcoming project, ‘Krystal‘, and he’s not taking it on alone. This is not Macy’s first time in the director’s seat with having ‘The Layover‘ and ‘Rudderless‘, as well as an episode of ‘Shameless‘ under his belt.

by Janet White on Mar 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Miracles from Heaven - Family

Miracles from Heaven opens in a beautiful richly colored forest and Christie Beam defining a miracle, an occurrence that “cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws.” Cut to a nice size farm and the interior of a rolling tire as a little girl is giggling and could there be a sweeter beginning. The Beam family has three girls: Abigail (Brighton Sharbino), Annabelle (Kylie Rogers), and Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) and two loving parents Christy (Jennifer Garner) and Kevin (Martin Henderson). Tragedy mysteriously strikes the middle child and thus begins the trial of this family’s strength, love, and faith.  Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Wild’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

reese-withersonpoon-first-image-look-pic-Cheryl-wild-movie-adaptation2

Director Jean-Marc Vallee is becoming one of the finer filmmakers of this modern age. Even though his resume is a short one, each one of his films has been fantastic. Vallee is one of those directors who does not stick to one particular genre, but rather goes after different stories in different time periods and genres. And while he might not be as drastic as Stanley Kubrick in this fashion, the comparison is still there.

Janet’s Film Review of ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 5th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

interstellar_movie-wide

Periodically covering the land, homes, vehicles, indoor counters, and tables inside locked up homes are dust storms, more massive than those in Dune and The Mummy.  The viewer physically feels the force of the dust wall as the sound rocks their seats and chests.  The people cannot see or breathe.  The air has become 80% nitrogen and rising, slightly north of our current healthy air at 78% nitrogen.  Strange?  Yes.  A loud boom shakes the viewer, a drone flies barely above a truck, far below avoiding radar.  Odd?  Yes.  But signs of the end of the planet Earth?  The general public doesn’t know it, but I guess it is a lot like that frog sitting in a pot of water being brought slowly to a boil.  The frog will sit there and slowly cook itself.  Well, not on Cooper’s watch.
