There are only a few things that have remained consistent over the past couple of decades. Death, taxes, a good horror movie every few months, chocolate chip cookies, and the brilliance and comedy from Jon Stewart’sDaily Show‘ on Comedy Central. For the last 17 years, Stewart has hosted a half hour comedy new program that quickly became one of the top news sources in the country.

A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 18th, 2019

“If I could sum A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood up best for you, a boy about 10 years old gave it a standing ovation and it’s not exactly a kid’s movie.”

Mr. Rogers continues to charm on-screen with the newest installation in films that seem to capture the heart and soul of America’s childhood sweetheart in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. This film is a total 180 from last year’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor documentary which focused primarily on Rogers, as this film centers more on journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) and the relationship he lacks with his father (Chris Cooper). It’s not what I was expecting, but I am not mad it’s what I got.

The Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

Late Night – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 13th, 2019

“Late Night is a funny film with some great messages and solid performances.”

Late Night, written and co-produced by Mindy Kaling, who also happens to star in the film, hits on a lot of levels and in mostly all the right ways. Kaling plays Molly, a naïve diversity hire on the Katherine Newberry show, the only late night show starring a woman. Newberry, played by Emma Thompson has ruled the late night airwaves for decades but alas, she’s aging, and no one likes an aging woman. In a time when her ratings are dropping and the female head of the network wants to replace her with what feels like a swinging dick, she has her right hand man find literally any woman to add to the writing staff. In walks Molly who isn’t at all what the showrunners want, but she has all the right parts.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #10!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This film is so amazing and so remarkable and fresh in every way possible that I can’t seem to watch it enough. I’m of course talking about Topsy Turvy, directed by Mike Leigh and starring and A-List cast. I’m a huge fan of films that cover the making of movies or in this case, a stage play. The inner workings of the behind-the-scenes of a film or stage play are hectic, stressful, hilarious, scary, and down right comical all in one bag. Just look at the films Son of Rambow or the recent Birdman.
