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‘.

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.

Sacha Baron Cohen Set To Play Freddie Mercury

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2010

Sacha Baron Cohen shot to fame with his character “Borat” a few years ago.  You might remember him from “Da Ali G Show” or from the more recent “Bruno” movie where he played an outlandishly gay character.  Also you could have caught a glimpse of Sacha in “Talladega Nights” or “Sweeney Todd”.

Now Cohen has signed on to star as Queen frontman in the biopic of Freddie Mercury.  I think Sacha has a lot of talent in character acting and I am very excited to see him take on a more serious role in this manner.  Kinda like Jim Carrey did with Andy Kaufman in Man On The Moon.

The project has reportedly secured right to such Queen hits as “We Are The Champions,” “We Will Rock You” and “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  I wonder if we will see David Bowie in this picture anywhere with “Under Pressue”?

And don’t forget that Cohen has some singing experience from “Sweeney Todd”.

Hey guys, Jana here,

31-Rob-Zombie

Rob Zombie has had all of us anxiously awaiting his newest feature film, ‘31‘. I’m down for seeing anything Zombie does, but after his trying twice to get an R rating and receiving NC-17 decisions, third time was the charm for him and he finally received his R rating. Personally, I wanna see the NC-17 version! Anyhow, in celebration of this rating, the rocker-filmmaker has given the fans a treat, in releasing the first poster!

A Retrospective Look Back at the year 2007 in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2017

Written by: Dan Moran

It has been a decade since we have had an overwhelmingly great year of movies. There have been some ‘great movies’ for sure, that have been released since 2007, but a collective year of dominance like 2007 hasn’t been experienced in 10 years. We have to start with the films that people still talk about today from 2007. No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, & Zodiac. I mean what a Top 3 for one calendar year!  The closest we got to this was in 2015 when the Top 3 was, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Fury Road, & Mad Max: Fury Road.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Well well well. It’s nowhere near game over man with the Alien franchise or their home video releases. Alien: Covenant is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 15th with an earlier Digital release on August 1st. In addition to the mass roll out of these releases, there will also be Limited Edition Exclusives available at certain retailers. Luckily, there won’t be any bonus features specific to the different retailers like they’ve annoyingly done in the past. These exclusives are basically package-only differences, which you can read about below. It looks like Dolby Atmos will be the preferred audio format along with a ton of extras included. I can’t wait to watch this again.
