‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ Finally Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

beverly-hills-cop-4-release-date-570x294

The ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ franchise seems to be never ending, or at least never getting up off the ground. That being said, it looks like a 4th film with Eddie Murphy is finally gaining steam once again. We’ve seen this before. Hell, we’ve seen a TV series try to take off, but never happen with this franchise. Maybe this time, it will actually happen, and we will get the Detroit cop back in California once again, solving a crime.

Film Review: ‘Everly’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

4guide_everly.still_web__large

I went into ‘Everly‘ not knowing anything other than the great horror filmmaker Joe Lynch directed it and that the beautiful Salma Hayek was starring in this action film. After the film ended, not only was it one of the most entertaining and thrilling experiences I’ve had in the theater in a long time, but it was also one of the greatest Christmas movies I’ve ever seen.

And the Director for ‘Beverly Hills Cop 4’ Is….

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

beverly7

Well this couldn’t have gotten any worse. Not only are we getting a 4th ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ movie, but Brett Ratner is now set to direct the sequel. Why am I upset about this, you ask? First off, Murphy hasn’t made a good movie since 1996 with the exception of ‘Dreamgirls‘. Second, the last ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘ movie was so awful that it might be the worst movie ever made. Hell, even George Lucas has an acting role in the last one. And third, Brett Ratner is making it, who might be one of the worst directors out there.

Paramount is returning to television production and will be co-producing the new CBS series ‘Beverly Hills Cop‘, which will mark the return of Eddie Murphy to the small screen.  This is big news as Paramount might be a heavy hitter in the television game once again.

Hi, Bryan Here….

You know that ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ tv series we have been talking about for a while now?  Well, things are heading in the right direction, because today they just found its main star.  Brandon T.

‘Beverly Hills Cop’ Returns As a TV Series At CBS!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

How long have we been hearing about a new ‘Beverly Hills Cop’ project?  Probably for the last 10 years or so.  Eddie Murphy, who plays the lead Detective Axel Foley has expressed interest in doing another sequel, but he has stated that he didn’t think the third installment was very good, and was holding out for a better script.  To me, that doesn’t make sense, because his films over the past several years have been awful, maybe with the exception of ‘Dream Girls’.  Instead of a film, we will get a tv series.

Tis the season to be thankful for many things. Family, friends, food, jobs, and Bruce Campbell. It’s Thanksgiving time and we here at Boomstick Comics just love movies. We love everything about them.

Film Review: It Comes At Night!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Screen Shot 2017-06-07 at 10.56.25 PM

Fear comes in many forms, but sometimes the most frightening horrors are the things we cannot see: the unknown. Trey Edward Shults, the Texas filmmaker who brought us his critically acclaimed SXSW debut (Krisha) in 2015, is back with his sophomore effort, ‘It Comes at Night.’ This flick is a high suspense mastery of smothering isolation, paranoia and unnatural evils. It prickles the senses and keeps the boiling tensions of dread so high, you might forget to breathe!

Film Review: ‘Game of Death’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 15th, 2017

Audrey E., here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 12.04.09 PM

A resurgence of the 1990s is happening and Hollywood seems to be taking notice with ‘Game of Death,’ a Canadian horror film that opens with bright, pixilated credits – an homage to the decade’s early style of gaming. In a surreal turn of events, a group of seven unlucky millennials: Tom (Sam Earle), Beth (Victoria Diamond), Ashley (Emelia Hellman), Mary-ann (Catherine Saindon), Tyler (Erniel Baez), Kenny (Nick Serino) & Matthew (Thomas Vallieres) after a summer afternoon of drinking and drugs in a pool house, unwillingly become slaves to a board game that, just like ‘Jumanji‘ (can we pretend like the 2017 remake isn’t happening, by the way?), won’t let you quit until it’s finished.

Film Review: ‘Gold’!!

by Janet White on Jan 27th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Gold - Ramirez, McConaughey & Howard

 

A prospector… Gold Rush pioneers or Yosemite Sam have nothing on the belief of Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey). Kenny comes from a prestigious line of miners. His grandfather founded Washoe Mining Co. and built a sterling reputation until his death. Under Kenny’s leadership, the company suffered a plummet in profits. Repeatedly shunned by many investors, he hunted for new opportunities to pump life back in the Washoe name. All Kenny had in the world was Kay (Bryce Dallas Howard) who gives new meaning to the phrase “stand by your man.” Suddenly, Kenny sees the pathway to his future in a dream. Along with the scientific expertise of Mike Acosta (Edgar Ramírez), Washoe’s blood turns red and hot. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Jason-Bourne-2

Hey now. Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in the new film that is simply titled, ‘Jason Bourne‘, which teams up Damon and director Paul Greengrass once again for the spy thriller who seems to never remember who he is or where he came from. In addition to the usual losing sight of Jason Bourne, then spotting him in a big crowd, to losing him once again, the writers added HBO’sSilicon Valley‘ show to the element without all of the fun or comedy. I’ll get to that in a minute though.

Hey guys, Jana here,

I’m sure everyone’s noticed, or read, that remakes are the axis that makes the movie-world go round, and it looks like they’re also the source of “new” television series, as well. If you hear ‘Rambo: New Blood‘, someone is probably thinking Sly’s got another action flick on the way and they would, unfortunately, be wrong with that line of thinking. The title is absolutely in the works, but as a series for the small screen. Who’s surprised – raise of hands? Me either.

Film Review: ‘Steve Jobs’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 16th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

steve-jobs-movie-2015-holding

Steve Jobs opens on a black and white video of a young boy listening with profound focus to a computer technician’s progressive response to the world’s potential journey towards a computer-dependent society.  Young Steve Jobs clearly had a desire for technological innovation in his blood even then.  Through his wide-eyed look, the turning of his mental wheels was easily discerned.  Even then, you could tell that Jobs had his mind set on a path to making the right computers a part of everyone’s everyday life.  Fast forward to the launch of the first Mac where an all-grown up Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is in a state of controlled panic (or was it frustration?).

Film Review: ‘Vacation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

“We’re on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose!” Those were wise, unearthing words from America’s family man Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) as he trekked his family from Chicago to California inside the Griswold family truckster back in 1983. Clark, along with his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and their two kids Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron) encountered a variety of hilarious obstacles and problems along their difficult road trip, but they stuck together as a family and proved that any American family can make it across country without killing one another…mostly.

The Griswolds are back and have planned a new vacation. However it won’t feature Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo this time around, although they do make appearances here. This film follows Clark’s son Rusty (Ed Helms) and his wife (Christina Applegate), and their two kids as they embark on a road trip to Wally World. Rusty tells his family that it was the best time in his life and he wants hi own family to experience the fun and adventure of a family cross-country road trip. I guess they aren’t going to Hawaii again.

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

We discuss how he made the film, his casting decisions, some of the more difficult things to shoot, and some of his influences. We also discuss some of his favorite scenes from film, and much much more. Lynch can be seen on the hit series ‘Holliston‘ with his friend Adam Green. Lynch also directed ‘Wrong Turn 2‘, a segment in ‘Chillermama‘, ‘Knights of Badassdom‘, and ‘Everly‘. It was a fun-as-hell interview. Enjoy.

I knew there was some gas left in this engine and it looks like the Wagon Queen Family Truckster Station Wagon is rolling on with another sequel. This is going to be the second film in the family of Vacation movies that John Hughes hasn’t written. He passed away in 2009, making the Christmas Vacation his last film in the series.  The chain consisting of ‘National Lampoon’s Vacation‘, ‘National Lampoon’s European Vacation‘, follow that up with the holiday staple ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘ and finally a last ditch effort to keep the films going with ‘National Lampoon’s Vegas Vacation‘. Legendary 80’s filmmaker and writer John Hughes gave us the characters that filled these movies with some of the most dysfunctional and hilarious characters in film history.

Silver has written some memorable films like ‘8 Mile‘ and 2010’s ‘The Fighter‘. Cary Fukunaga director of HBO’s first season of ‘True Detective‘ will direct. He is also set as the director for the remake of one of my childhood favorites ‘IT‘. I’m going to be scouring his work looking for signs that will show either good or bad for the future of Stephen King’s quintessential tale of disappearing kids and the horror that lurks under the town of Derry, Maine.

‘Fletch Lives’ On!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 11th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

Fletch

If you’re like me, when you hear the name ‘Fletch‘, you automatically picture the journalist played by Chevy Chase. I think you can see where this one is going. Yes, ‘Fletch‘ is being rolled over with the re-make wheel. I appreciate that it’s been in the works for a very long time. At least since the late 90’s when Kevin Smith was attached to direct. Smith made a valiant effort to give things a re-boot with a son-of-Fletch-story line that would have portrayed Chase turning the reigns over to his son. There were names from Brad Pitt-to-Dave Chappelle-to Ellen Degeneres in the running for the title role. Eventually Smith dropped out to work on his own original work.

What could possibly go wrong in a romantic movie that includes time travel, Colin Farrell on a flying horse, Russell Crowe as a demon, and Will Smith as the Devil? Well, a lot actually. Winter’s Tale is a truly sappy bit of film with a lot of star power and a story that relies on manipulation rather than actual depth.

R.I.P. Tony Scott! 1944-2012!

I grew up on Tony Scott films.  From ‘Top Gun’, ‘Days of Thunder’, ‘Beverly Hills Cop II’, ‘Crimson Tide’, ‘True Romance’, and ‘The Last Boy Scout’.  Not to mention several others from the past few years.  Scott committed suicide at the age of 68 by jumping off a bridge near Long Beach.  This is difficult to process, as to why he felt he needed to do this, and how great a filmmaker he was.

Milne’s books and crafted in Disney’s classic style, “Winnie the Pooh,” is the most critically-acclaimed animated film of 2011.  It is narrated by the voice of John Cleese and features the vocal talents of legendary voice actor Jim Cummings(over 350 voices including Gnomeo & Juliet) and a host of other distinctive actors including Craig Ferguson(TV’s ‘The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson’), Tom Kenny (TV’s ‘SpongeBob SquarePants’), Bud Luckey (Toy Story 3) and musical performances by Zooey Deschanel (indie folk band “She & Him”).

Classic Waxxx: Eric Clapton “Eric Clapton”

by NapkinArt on Aug 9th, 2011

Times are really tough for a lot of folks in the world, right now. I mean, where does one even begin to break up the black clouds circling overhead? How much more bad news can we, as a people, take in one sitting? I honestly don’t want to know the answer to that question, but it is times like these that I can take refuge in my record collection, especially when my collection has this gem of an album by Eric Patrick Clapton.

I’m sure by now most music fans are familiar with the guitar genius of Eric Clapton, via his unsurpassed talents with bands The Yardbirds, John Mayall & The Bluesbreakers and Cream. However, “Slowhand” has been recording critically and commercially successful album as a solo artist for nearly four decades, and his first self-titled LP proved (and still proves) that Clapton is indeed, God.

A couple of decades before Shaun of the Dead and Zombieland made audiences scream and laugh at the sight of zombies eating your flesh and brains, Return of the Living Dead paid tribute to the horror frenzy of Romero Zombie films that came before.   This same year Romero would release his most gruesome film, “Day of the Dead”.  Early on in production, the producers and director wanted to make a film that was sort of a homage to the 1969 classic Night of the Living Dead.  It is a tribute to that old Drive -In Horror movie era.

Now the first time I saw this film was when I was about twelve years ago and my cousin had a copy on VHS.  We sat down and watched it, and my jaw dropped on how crazy this movie was.  We had to turn off the movie ever so often when his parents would come in the room so that they wouldn’t see us watching blood and guts and tits.  All necessary things to have in a horror movie by the way.

Merely chalking Return of the Living Dead as a horror comedy really doesn’t do this justice.  This really is the ultimate 80’s horror film from my youth.  It has some genuinely freaky moments, some over the top gore and a ghoulish sense of humor.  If you’re not laughing at a naked, frozen cadaver sprinting towards a screeching homeless guy or one of the characters discovering that movies lie about how to kill zombies, then surely you’ll chuckle at reanimated corpses chanting “brains” or roll your eyes when another character gives his short soliloquy about his look being a lifestyle.  I mean this movie has it all.  This a must own for anytime of the year.

The Picture Quality

Back in 2007, a big Collector’s edition of this movie was released and the director worked on remastering it.  This seems to be the same transfer on bluray which is a good thing.  It looks clear with the same feel as an 80’s movie.  It is presented in 1080p in 1.85:1.  Facial close-ups are great and the contrast is bright that gives the visibility of objects in the background some depth and clarity.  Some of the black levels are not consistent with the rest of the film but it is barely noticeable.  It is a great release but it would have been nice for a new HD transfer.

The Audio Quality

This release comes with a DTS-HS audio track which is the best out of all previous releases.  But since it was recorded in mono, do not expect somethingAMAZING.   It doesn’t pack a punch that would scare you out of your seat like newer recorded movies would do, but for mono quality, it does the trick.  It brings you back to that nostalgic 80’s era.

The Packaging

This is where my MAJOR gripe comes in.  The cover art for this release is NOT the awesome art that we are all used to.  Instead we get the decayed text in red with a one zombie jumping out at you towards the bottom of the cover.  What was wrong with the zombie punks in the graveyard?  That is an iconic image.  Why didn’t you keep that?  It is overall a very unattractive cover.  They should have kept it original.  The discs main menu is pretty cool though.  It zooms through the graveyard where their are full motion clips on all the tombstones with some instrumental music playing.

Extras

If you own previous editions, then all of those features were transfered to this release.  This is a good thing, because the extras are heavy plenty of them.

Disc One

  • Audio Commentaries — Two separate feature-length tracks are ported over from the earlier DVD releases. First up is director Dan O’Bannon and production designer William Stout. Immediately, things are off to a good start, as before introducing themselves O’Bannon is compelled to tell viewers that this film is absolutely based on true facts. Despite being a very scene-specific commentary, both men are talkative and crack jokes at one another as well as about the movie. O’Bannon, of course, spends more time explaining the origins of certain lines and working with the cast, while Stout examines the look and prop design, offering some great anecdotes behind the production. Overall, this is an enjoyable and informative commentary track that’s worth a listen. Our second audio track features Stout once more, and he’s joined by cast members Don Calfa, Linnea Quigley, Brian Peck, Beverly Randolph, and Allan Trautman. Although not as energetic as the previous selection, the group is quite chatty with nary a moment of silence. Everyone offers minor quips about the production and behind-the-scenes stories, from casting to wardrobe. They even throw in a few compliments to the crew and Stout’s work, and there’s also an interesting comment about Ed Gein’s death at around the same time as shooting. We also learn that Quigley’s dancing scene on the set was while Vanity 6’s “Nasty Girls” played in the background. The discussion offers a fun listen with several good tidbits spread throughout and one strange moment of weirdness.
  • “The Dead Have Risen” (SD, 21 min) — A short retrospective with cast members sharing their experiences working on the movie. Although it’s mostly a whole lot of praising, there is the occasional comment about the characters and preparation that makes it worth a look.
  • “The Decade of Darkness” (SD, 23 min) — Made up mostly of interviews with various filmmakers, including a few funny bits with Elvira, this piece is an awesome look back at the 1980s, a booming decade of some of the wildest and creative horror movies that has yet to be matched.
  • “Designing the Dead” (SD, 14 min) — Director Dan O’Bannon talks about how he came to work in the film industry and how the script for this movie landed on his lap. Along with William Stout providing a historical setting, O’Bannon also shares his reasons for changing the original concept into a comedy.
  • Trailers (SD) — Two theatrical previews are offered here: a green band version dubbed the “Bloody Version” and the red band called “Even Bloodier Version.”
  • Zombie Subtitle Stream — This is much like a separate subtitle track for when zombies scream. And all we see is the words “aaarrrgghh!!” every once in a while on the screen. It’s nothing wholly exciting.
  • In Their Own Words: The Zombies Speak — This is a pretty weak attempt at comedy, pretending like zombies are making random comments at the movie.

Disc Two

  • DVD — A standard definition copy of the film is also included in the package with the same assortment of special features.

Overall, I think this is a solid release, but I do not think it will be the last one.  I do like the fact that you get the DVD and Bluray with this purchase.  The audio is the best you will have so far with this release and the picture is solid.  This is truly a gem of a film and a must own for any horror fans.

Make the purchase by clicking the link/picture below in time for Halloween.

I am sure you have heard of ILM before or at least seen it in the credits for just about every movie made.  It is the amazing effects company started by Star Wars creator George Lucas 35 years ago.  It was started to create the effects for Star Wars and quickly became the premiere effects company in Hollywood and is virtually in every film in some form or another.

So the Encore movie channel will be airing a documentary in November about the ILM company.  It will be narrated by Tom Cruise and will feature interviews by major actors and directors.

The press release says:

ENCORE PAYS VISUAL TRIBUTE TO OSCAR®-WINNING VISUAL EFFECTS GIANT ILM IN CELEBRATION OF THEIR 35TH ANNIVERSARY WITH ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY “INDUSTRIAL LIGHT & MAGIC: CREATING THE IMPOSSIBLE”

Tom Cruise Narrates Doc Premiering November 14, 2010
Marathon of Five ILM-Effects Films on Encore

Beverly Hills, CA., September 14, 2010 – Since its founding 35 years ago, Industrial Light & Magic has been the movie industry’s undisputed leader in groundbreaking visual effects, thrilling audiences and making hits into blockbusters. On Sunday, November 14 at 8:00 p.m. (et/pt), Encore presents an original documentary celebrating that legacy. “Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible” is directed by Academy Award® and Emmy® nominated director Leslie Iwerks and is narrated by Tom Cruise. Encore will also present five ILM-effects films starting at 2:00 p.m. with Jumanji, followed by Hook, Jurassic Park III, Twister and Starship Troopers.

The hour-long special has interviews with filmmakers George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard,  J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Robin Williams, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and John Lasseter, the chief  creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.  Film and television shows featured in the special include The Abyss, Avatar, Forrest Gump, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Robot Chicken, Star Trek (2009), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Transformers, Twister, Young Sherlock Holmes and The War of the Worlds (2005), which starred narrator Cruise.

Leslie Iwerks’ documentary takes audiences behind the scenes at ILM with in depth interviews with some of the company’s top talent and showcases never before seen footage highlighting many of their pioneering milestones. From creating the first ever computer generated character in a feature film to the latest advancements in visual effects for film franchises like Transformers and Iron Man, ILM has created some of the most memorable movie moments in recent history.

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) is a division of Lucasfilm Ltd. and was founded by George Lucas in 1975 to create the visual effects for his space epic Star Wars. The studio originated in Van Nuys, California but moved to San Rafael, California to work on The Empire Strikes Back and is now headquartered at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio of San Francisco with a sister studio in Singapore.

ILM has worked on nearly 300 films in its 35 year history and has largely been the driving force behind the evolution of modern visual effects.  From the liquid metal man in Terminator 2: Judgment Day to the lifelike digital dinosaurs in Jurassic park, ILM has created some of the most iconic moments in cinematic history.

ILM has received 15 Best Visual Effects Oscars and 25 additional nominations. It has also received 23 Scientific and Technical Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in recognition of the critical role the company’s advances in technology have played in the filmmaking process. ILM is also the only entertainment company to be recognized with the National Medal of Technology.

I just hope it is an depth look at the company and not a broad view of it.  I will be recording it.

If Bill and Ted travel through time again…..??

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 30th, 2010

This past weekend at the New Beverly in L.A., a double feature of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey was screened and was SOLD OUT.  As it should be.  Bill (Alex Winter) was there live in person to introduce the films and do a Q & A.

Someone asked if there was going to be a third film and Alex said that he and Keanu and Ed Solomon have been brainstorming ideas and that they want to make an amazing third film and not a crappy one like so many sequels these days.  That had ideas even to make a rated R third film.  If they come up with a story that was worth making it will definitely happen.

I can’t express how badly I want a third Bill and Ted film.  Sadly there will be no George Carlin, but to see these characters on screen in a new adventure would rock my geek world.

Let me know what you would like to see in a third Bill and Ted movie.
