Film Review: ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 5th, 2018

Going into ‘The Cloverfield Paradox‘, which should be renamed to ‘The Cloverfield Potato‘, I was a huge fan of this movie universe and its mythology. With 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, I loved the use of handheld cameras and the found footage aspect to tell this crazy story of a giant creature wreaking havoc on everyone and everything in New York, despite the annoying characters. Some years later, we got a film set in the same universe with ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, which had us holed up with John Goodman and couple other great characters where something terrible was happening outside their underground bunker, just as something equally awful was happening underground. JJ Abrams had announced a third film some years ago that would take place in this ‘Cloverfield‘ universe, but went thru many delays and a ton of titles, including ‘The God Particle‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

cloverfield

The ‘Cloverfield‘ series seems to be a bit low-key, but once the film lands it gathers huge amounts of steam  and fan love. The original film that kickstarted the franchise is 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, 8 years later in 2016 saw ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘. While the film wasn’t a direct sequel, but more like a cousin to the original, we’ve learned that JJ Abrams‘ ‘God Particle‘ is the next relative in the series.

Film Review: ‘Burnt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 2.01.41 PM

Perhaps enough time has passed since Jon Favreau’s hit film ‘Chef‘ graced theaters for a new movie that has a lot of similarities to stand on its own. Then again, maybe it doesn’t. Originally, ‘Burnt‘ was actually titled ‘Chef‘, but of course had to change titles, but the story still remained in tact from director John Wells and writer Steven Knight (‘Locke‘). Billed as a comedy film with a chef played by Bradley Cooper, ‘Burnt‘ is like the steely ice cold, unfunny, heartwarming version of ‘Chef‘, which if you look at the bigger picture here, what’s really the point?

Bradley Cooper stars as Chef Adam Jones, the chef with two-star Michelin rockstar with all the bad habits that accompany the title. He burned bridges and forged new paths by doing everything his own way, his only goal creating a new and thrilling taste explosion. Just like every bad boy turns good story, he’s trying to turn things around in his drive for a third star and he travels home to London to recruit the best of the best professionals ever in order to achieve it.

Hey guys, Jana here,

bradley-cooper1

The entertainment world goes through fads, just like fashion. One day we’re inundated with talking sea animals from every animated company, the next day it’s all about bugs. Right now, culinary genius is taking center stage.

The Weinstein Company began production today on ‘Adam Jones‘. This pic puts Bradley Cooper (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘) and Sienna Miller (‘GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘) together and adds a little spice making Cooper a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to change his ways. The project was originally called ‘The Chef‘ until  ‘Chef‘, Jon Favreau’s tale of a chef who loses his restaurant and hits to the road in a food truck piecing his life, and his family, back together along the way. Obviously this can’t work in the film industry an agreement was made and a change of title followed.

Hello, Jana here,

beauty-of-helen-mirren-2

Ryan Reynolds is the latest to join Helen Mirren in The Weinstein Company’s ‘Woman In Gold‘ or ‘The Golden Lady‘, not sure which title they are going to go with. Daniel Bruhl is in negotiations, at this point. Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann,  a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took this case despite knowing little about art and Bruhl, will play his adversary.  Looks like George Clooney’sThe Monument’s Men‘ missed a few paintings.

Ron Howard’s new movie is called ‘Rush‘ and is a Formula One racing drama that follows the rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda in the 70s. Chris ‘Thor’ Hemsworth and Daniel ‘Inglorious Basterds’ Bruhl will star as the drivers. The film will release September 27th from Universal Pictures. I must say, it looks damn good. It’s been fun following Ron Howard on his social networks, seeing production videos and photos.
