Feb/2020

I had the pleasure to sit down with the ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘ filmmakers at Fantastic Fest 2018 this year, including Jim Hosking and David Wike. You’d remember them mostly from their previous movie ‘THE GREASY STRANGLER‘. Their new film ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘ is a sweet, odd, and magical movie about love, romance, past relationships, and music. The film stars Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson, and more. See the full review HERE.

‘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.

‘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.

Bad Boys For Life – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2020

“Bad Boys for Life is a blast.”

“Shit just got real.” Bad Boys for Life is the third installment in this movie franchise that has Will Smith and Martin Lawrence partnering up once again, telling jokes, driving fast vehicles, and killing the bad guys. The first film was released 25 years ago with the second film debuting 17 years back, both of them made by Michael Bay. It’s a new decade and era, and even though Will Smith hasn’t aged a day since the Clinton administration, Michael Bay is nowhere to be found behind the scenes here. In fact, two relatively unknown Belgian filmmakers, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have taken the reigns and made a thrilling, funny, and somewhat heartfelt Bad Boys film, one that has consequences and brings more development to these two hilarious characters. It’s no wonder Arbi and Fallah are tackling Beverly Hills Cop 4 with Eddie Murphy next. But with Bad Boys for Life, you can expect the usual action set pieces, but with some added heart and soul to the mix, which is a very welcome addition and breathes new life into this film series.

IT CHAPTER 2 – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2019

THE FILM


The second and final chapter of ‘IT‘ brings the adult renderings of Stephen King’s kid heroes to the forefront some 27 years later in ‘IT: Chapter 2‘, that stars Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy. This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long. Director Andy Muschietti has even said there is a 6.5-hour super-cut of the movie, which leads me to ask why this wasn’t released on a streaming format, due to its episodic nature and extensive time run. Still, this second chapter is entertaining enough but suffers from major flaws in pacing, redundancy, and trying to over-complicate things.

‘IT: Chapter 2’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2019

 

“‘IT: Chapter 2’ has some golden moments of horror and comedy, but it comes at an exhaustive and taxing price.”

Vice Squad – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2019

So a pimp, a prostitute, and a police detective walk into a bar. It sounds like the start of a bad joke or what could be a really good time with names like Princess and Ramrod, but in the case of 1982’s action film Vice Squad, that’s not always the case. In fact, this is a super sexualized crime thriller with some hardcore violence and one rough bad guy. This movie is the culmination of the late 70s and early 80s that brought together a ton of top-tier talent, which is funny because this movie is so over-the-top violent, that you can’t believe it was ever made and released. Gary Sherman directed this pic, who previously just came off Dead and Buried and went onto make Poltergeist III. He was joined by producing partner Robert Rehme (former president of Avco Pictures who helped make a ton of John Carpenter movies, including The Fog and Escape From New York). Also collaborating with this duo was cinematographer John Alcott, who had previously worked on four of Stanley Kubrick’s best films, including 2001: A Spacy Oddessy, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and A Clockwork Orange. Rounding out this stellar crew of talent is composer Joe Renzetti (Child’s Play). While the story may be your standard grindhouse B-movie affair, the visual style, camera angles, and score are out of this world.

Just in time to commemorate National Goth Day, The Wyly Theatre in Dallas opened its doors on 5/22 to a risqué musical based on the classic cult film: Cruel Intentions (1999). The stylish lounge was abuzz for opening night of ‘Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical’ as attendees picked up their tickets; each one accompanied by a trendy slap bracelet. As the audience filled the black box theatre auditorium, dark tufted walls and dim lighting set the intimate mood for this scandalous dramedy. Get ready for a late night swim with the cast of ‘Cruel Intentions: The ‘90s Musical’ as they offer up the decade’s best songs with sequenced dance moves, infectious hilarity and yes – put a spotlight on an infamous blue moon.
