4K UHD Review: ‘Hell or High Water’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 19th, 2018

THE FILM


(The film portion was written by Liz Tramer)

Director David Mackenzie’s latest film, Hell or High Water, is a perfect example of how slow and steady wins the race.  The film is a little slow to start, but once it gets going, it’s fantastic. The story centers around two brothers, Toby  Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) who are desperately trying to save their mother’s farm and keep it in the family. The brothers are literally under the gun to find the money and decide the quickest way to make the deadline is to rob banks. Toby is intelligent, calm, cool and collected and the brains behind the operation. Tanner is an ex con hothead who relishes the crime spree and does little to control either his rage or his inclination toward violence.

Back in 2013, horror master Stephen King released the novel ‘Doctor Sleep‘, which was his sequel to ‘The Shining‘. It was only a matter of time before we got a movie adaptation of it. So here we are in 2018 and it looks like Warner Bros. is developing the project at full steam ahead. Mike Flanagan has been set to write and direct the film. Flanagan is a horror filmmaker himself, where he got his start with the films ‘Oculus‘ and ‘Hush‘.

Is this a dream? I’m dreaming, right? Quentin Tarantino is about to beam up to the ‘Star Trek‘ franchise and that’s not joke. Tarantino, who is a big fan of all films, came up with a ‘Star Trek‘ storyline for a new film and talked with JJ Abrams about it. Abrams liked it so much, because why wouldn’t he, and the two have started to assemble a writer’s room who will knock out a big script based on Tarantino’s idea.

Hey Riggs! ‘Lethal Weapon 5’ Might Happen!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2017

You’re never too old for this shit as Warner Bros. is talking with everyone about a new ‘Lethal Weapon‘ film that brings back the original cast. According to some sources, director Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon, Superman, The Goonies) would return in the director’s chair with Channing Gibson writing the screenplay. That name isn’t a typo either. Channing Gibson wrote ‘Lethal Weapon 4‘ and ‘Walking Tall‘ with The Rock. This would also bring back Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in their respective and iconic roles.

Written by: Bryan Kluger

The director who brought us ‘Gravity‘, ‘Children of Men‘, ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien‘, and the best Harry Potter film is now playing with the horror genre, which just excites me to the end of the Earth. You mean to tell me, that Alfonso Cuarón who has terrified us with outer space and women not having babies will take the horror genre on head first? I’m so in.

If you were unsure the answer was anything other than “Shaft”, you best be getting yourself a film-education right fast and in a hurry. If you just can’t seem to get that done, Netflix will give you a primer when they reboot the classic 1971 film that was already rebooted once in 2000.

The Munsters are Getting a Reboot!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Does no production company or tv network have any original ideas anymore? When will these studios and networks take a chance on something new? Ugh. Anyway, NBC is reviving The Munsters, which was a 1960s comedy series of lovable monsters. It was like Leave it to Beaver, but with monsters. Jill Kargman and Seth Meyers are behind the reboot. This new take will be a half-hour single camera show, which is now in full gear, and will follow the family in a hip area of Brooklyn, trying to fit in.
