Hi Bryan Here….

That’s right.  Universal has hired David Ayer to write the script for the updated version of Scarface.  We wrote about this a month or two ago about how this Scarface won’t necessarily be a sequel or remake, but rather just and updated version.  The film will put a new spin on the outlaw tale first released in 1932 with Paul Muni playing an Italian who took over Chicago, and then turned into the ultra violent 1983 film that starred Al Pacino as Tony Montana, a Cuban who took over the cocaine trade in 1980s Miami.

Hey guys, Jana here,

If David E. Kelley (‘Ally McBeal‘, ‘LA Law‘, ‘The Practice‘) is bringing a series about it’s a pretty much guarantee that it’s going to be a high-powered, legal drama and in this case, you’d be right. Amazon has picked up the series ‘Trial‘ from the writer and has cast some pretty big super-stars to anchor the drama, Billy Bob Thornton and William Hurt.

Hey guys, Jana here,

If there’s one thing HBO has learned in their relationship with Alan Ball the writer/producer who developed ‘True Blood‘, it’s to bank on him. They’re following through with that sage advice by joining forces with him once again, this time for an hour-long period drama pilot, ‘Virtuoso‘.

Jana B. here,

Bryan Singer is one busy dude in the entertainment industry, he’s known for the ‘X-Men‘ movies, ‘Superman Returns‘, ‘Jack the Giant Slayer‘ and of course he burst onto our radar with 1995’s twisted crime flick ‘The Usual Suspects‘ that made Singer and Keyser Söze common names. In addition to all the movie titles he has under his belt, he was also the director for the pilot of David Shore’s hit medical drama series ‘House‘ on Fox. Shore and Singer worked together to executive produce the accolade-accumulating series for the entire eight–season run.

David’s DVD Review of ‘Halls of Anger’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2012

Dave, Here….

I had never even heard of ‘Halls of Anger’ until I popped it into my blu-ray player so I decided to watch the trailer first (the trailer is available on the main menu of the disc, see Extras below).  From the trailer, you get a look at what this movie is going to be about, but it was actually a lot more interesting than I though it was going to be.

Hi Bryan Here…


It is very difficult to imagine a Buffy Universe without any involvement from its creator, Joss Whedon.  I can’t believe it was 1992 when I was first introduced to Buffy.  I was 11 years old.  Then I went on to enjoy the Buffy universe through tv shows and loved every minute of it.  But now, we will get a reboot on the big silver screen of the Buffy universe.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix has jumped from small-screen and so-so feature film debuts to big-budget film exclusivity. I’m not saying Netflix wasn’t on their A-game before, but being the sole place to find the new Adam Sandler movie is a little different than being the only outlet to carry the new Will Smith (‘Collateral Beauty‘) action flick, and that’s exactly who they are now with the debut of ‘Bright‘.

‘Gotham City Sirens’ Will Rock Theaters Soon!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

GCS Cv1 var

Margot Robbie and director David Ayer are back together, the last time this happened, the world received ‘Suicide Squad‘. The next venture is even more of a daunting task, and that is ‘Gotham City Sirens‘. I’ll assume that not everyone eats, sleeps and breathes DC comics and I’ll slow it down. DC is the comic book world I prefer to live in, I like dark, deep, broody, melancholy atmospheres, and I’m not entirely certain the sun ever hits the center of Gotham City, but I’m ok with that. Marvel is too bright and flashy and, just not me.

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

a1kazv9rhrl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

Hey guys, Jana’s here,

PicMonkey Collage

Well there’s some good news and bad news abuzz in the movie world that affects the DC movie-verse. ‘Suicide Squad‘ casting was released a few months ago which brought reactions in all spectrums from fans that are rather passionate about who will embody our favorite characters. I know the reactions were mixed because I had some pretty mixed reactions, myself. Particularly with Tom Hardy being cast in the role of Squad leader Rick Flag, however this doesn’t have to be an issue any longer as Hardy has exited the project over scheduling issues.

Hey guys, Jana here,

When I was told director David Ayer was going to bring one of my favorite comics, ‘Suicide Squad‘ to life, I got excited and happy that immediately turned into stomach churning nausea. Why would I have such an extreme reaction to this news? I mean, comic books have been inspiration and fodder for dozens of high dollar productions, why would this be different? I’ll tell you what bothers me about it, the casting for the villains needs to be impeccable.

When it comes to Marvel comic-to-movie VS. DC comic-to-movie transformations, Marvel has a clear leading edge with interlaced storylines and sheer numbers that have been released. It pains me to type that because I am a DC fan. HUGE fan of DC characters, the heroes and their amazing villains. To me, the villains are absolute top notch and beat out anything Marvel can throw out. The colors, the histories, the wicked laughs and plots are perfectly my brand of crazy. Among these vivid characters that leap off the pages are Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and of course, The Joker.

Film Review: ‘Fury’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 16th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Fury-Poster-2

When Brad Pitt signs up to kill nazis in a WWII movie, you say, “YES”. This particular movie is called ‘Fury‘, and is a solid, very good war film. It’s brutal, violent, raw, and has enough of a fresh feel to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire 134-minute runtime. Instead of being out in the open, walking the fields of France or another nazi occupied country, ‘Fury‘ takes place mostly inside a small steel tank with five guys led by ‘Wardaddy’ (Pitt), during the final month of WWII. The claustrophobia sets in quickly and gives us an ample amount of time to dig deep into each soldier inside the tank.

Marvel Entertainment now has a full fledged rival with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Warner Bros. and DC Comics has just announced all of its superhero films through 2020, plus a few Lego films and new ‘Harry Potter‘ movies. Needless to say, the theaters are going to be packed and each studio is going to be vying for the top box office placement and receipts.

Film Review: ‘Sabotage’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

 Arnold Schwarzenegger has been on quite a role since his political career in California. He has come back in full force to the movie world and has given us three films, including this one, with five more projects on the way. Needless to say, he has been busy. The first two films, since his time in the Governor’s chair in California were ‘The Last Stand‘ and ‘Escape Plan‘, both of which were PG-13 action vehicles for Schwarzenegger that had a silly and highly entertaining premise, even though the plots of both films were ridiculous. But in both of those movies, we received Arnold’s famous one-liners and his angry glare as he looks down upon his enemies with a giant machine gun in his hand, ever so ready to add to his impressive body count.
