Hey guys, Jana here,

There are several elements that go into play when a movie is prepping for their initial debut. There is an advertising campaign, and the goal is to saturate the atmosphere with the upcoming movie, all designed to get us to show up in theaters and plunk down a chunk of our hard-earned cash. One of the first type of media to invade our subconscious is the all-important movie poster. This may seem like a small thing, but each poster is carefully designed to share just enough information that will reel us a bit closer, then just like when fishing, set that hook.

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.

Hey guys, Jana here,

westworld-poster

True Detective‘ set the bar higher than normal by casting the brilliant Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. HBO has now turned it’s eye to ‘Westworld‘ hoping it will turn out to be as irresistible as ‘True Detective‘. HBO has won a pretty big prize in locking Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood for the primary positions. Writer-Director Michael Crichton made the original ‘Westworld‘ in 1973, Yul Brynner, James Brolin, Dick Van Patten – Yeah, it was a whole thing.

Film Review: ‘Chef’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2014

Janet W. Here…

Chef Movie (5)

Succulent dishes, funny men, beautiful women, and the cutest kid you’d ever want to meet make ‘Chef‘ sound like a win-win, right?  Well ‘Chef‘  is all of that and then some.  Written, directed, and starring Jon Favreau, ‘Chef is a delicious and punchy comedy.  Set in present day, Carl Casper (Favreau) is a man in the perfect profession as a chef, because he lives for the culinary creations.  However, Carl’s creative mind is imprisoned, which goes hand-in-hand when working for a controlling and condescending restaurateur, Riva (Dustin Hoffman).

Film Review: ‘Quartet’

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Quartet-poster

Quartet‘ marks the directing debut for Dustin Hoffman, who is now five years shy of 80, and the two make a great pairing, just like  a good wine and cheese. Hoffman took his cues from Ronald Harwood’s play and from a documentary from the 80s that showcased a retirement home for famous musicians and singers.  With its stellar cast, charming characters, witty dialogue, and amazing music ranging from The Mikado to the Rigoletto, ‘Quartet‘ is not to be missed.

Hi Bryan Here….

The Season Finale of HBO’s ‘Luck’ airs at the end of March, but don’t fret, for HBO has already renewed ‘Luck’ for a second season due to very high ratings.  It’s great to see Dustin Hoffman on HBO.  I think his character Ace, is brilliant.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him nominated for some awards in upcoming future awards shows.

Bryan Enjoys The ‘Straw Dogs’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Once I heard of the news that Sam Peckinpah’s 1971 film ‘Straw Dogs’ was getting remade, I was completely skeptical.  It was going to take one hell of a cast a crew to fill Peckinpah’s and Dustin Hoffman’s shoes.  I honestly didn’t think it could be done, but alas I think Peckinpah would be proud of this modern day re-telling of his work from Gordon Williams’ novel, ‘The Siege of Trencher’s Farm’.  Now the remake has its flaws, but everything from the original is mostly seen in this remake.  For fans of the original or for people new to the story, I definitely think you will enjoy all the brutal and barbaric images portrayed in this remake of ‘Straw Dogs’.
