Hey guys, Jana here,

JK Rowling’s world of witchcraft and wizardry lent itself, seamlessly, as the ingenious backdrop for three young, bright and shining, hopeful actors to find the voices of the most-beloved characters that lived inside of each one of them. Today, that world will take an established thespian, Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne (‘Les Miserables’) and expand the world of Harry Potter to include the author of one of Harry, Ron and Hermione’s textbooks ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them‘.

The world of Harry Potter was huge when it consisted of seven of the greatest children’s books to have ever been written, it expanded to depths no one could have predicted when Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint embodied Harry, Hermione and Ron on the big screen, and now J.K. Rowling is expanding the world once again.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

 

Grab your wands, spell books, wizards and witches, because the world of ‘Harry Potter‘ is back for the long haul with J.K. Rowlings‘ book ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to find Them‘. This film is the first in a set of five upcoming movies and begins with a good amount of character introductions, but not necessarily origin stories. Instead of taking place in a somewhat modern day London or even that of the magical place of Hogwarts, ‘Fantastic Beasts‘ takes place in the 1930s in New York, which is around the same time that King Kong would have been climbing buildings. So before Harry Potter himself was even born, this whole fantastic tale took place, which follows a young man named Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) who travels from England to the USA to release a beast of a bird in Arizona to be free. Scamander is a bumbling and clumsy young man, so it’s easy to see how and why he would lose his literal briefcase full of beasts out on New York, which is the main stage and story for the film.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

53fe9c57-1190-4d61-b197-fcda11fc89af

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

Janet White’s Best/Worst List of 2014!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

 

2014What an interesting year in film.  There were some really good films and REALLY bad ones.  Some are bad because of my disappointment in the execution of potential brilliance.  Others are good because they brought an amazing story in a skillful manner that is worthy of memory.  I can only speak to the films that I was either blessed or, in some cases, cursed to screen, 23 in all (plus one cool dance performance).  Feedback is encouraged whether you agree, disagree, think I’m nuts (I am a little crazy), or if you think a film I reviewed should have been included.  Here are my Top 10 Best Films and Top 5 Worst Films of 2014….

Fernando’s Review of ‘The Theory of Everything’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 2nd, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

the-theory-of-everything-toronto-film-festival

Biopics are a tricky thing.  Nine times out of ten, you’ll end up with something more suitable for a Lifetime or Hallmark channel movie.  This is especially true when you tackle a larger than life subject, someone with much more story than is capable of being captured in a 2 hour run time.  I am happy to report that “The Theory of Everything” lies in that rare category of a biopic done right.

Film Review: ‘The Theory of Everything’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 17th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

x900

The Theory of Everything is not simply the biography of Stephen W. Hawking (Eddie Redmayne).  The film is a work of art detailing the complexity, endurance, and potential origin of Hawking’s passion and time.  The Theory of Everything follows Hawking’s journey from his early days of struggling to determine the subject of his PhD to his later days as a world-renown scholar and author of this complex element in our lives.

Hello, Jana here,

beauty-of-helen-mirren-2

Ryan Reynolds is the latest to join Helen Mirren in The Weinstein Company’s ‘Woman In Gold‘ or ‘The Golden Lady‘, not sure which title they are going to go with. Daniel Bruhl is in negotiations, at this point. Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann,  a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took this case despite knowing little about art and Bruhl, will play his adversary.  Looks like George Clooney’sThe Monument’s Men‘ missed a few paintings.
