Film Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 17th, 2017

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

At San Diego Comic-Con today, the cast and crew of the upcoming Justice League movie debuted more footage, which looks amazing. Zack Snyder’s style is all over this film, however you can tell where Joss Whedon stepped in. The trailer shows all sorts of actions, characters and gives more insight on just what is going on in the film and where it’s going.

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.

Is Deathstroke coming to the film world of the DC Universe? Maybe so after Ben Affleck shared a solo video with no comment or explanation this morning on Twitter. We don’t know precisely what it means, but it looks to be a screen test as we can see the monitor Batfleck is recording it from.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

Seth Grahame-Smith Directing DC’s ‘The Flash’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 5th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

480x277_seth_grahamesmith

Seth Grahame-Smith  is putting some distance between himself and the novels that rocketed him to stardom (‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘ and ‘Pride and Prejudice and Zombies‘) by turning his eye to directing. The project in question isn’t an adaptation to one of his novels, but to ‘The Flash‘.

Film Review: ‘Trainwreck’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

NEbTciZPpnq3ei_1_b

Comedy mastermind Judd Apatow is back this year with a new feature film called ‘Trainwreck‘ and is his best film since ‘Knocked Up‘. That was eight years ago. Sure, Apatow has written and produced dozens of films since then, but has only really directed two other feature films since, being ‘Funny People‘ and ‘This is 40‘. The usual actors are nowhere to be seen in ‘Trainwreck‘ either. There is no Seth Rogen, Jonah Hill, Jason Segel, Martin Starr, or even James Franco to be seen anywhere on screen. Actress and comedienne Amy Schumer wrote the screenplay here for Apatow to direct and the two are a perfect pair.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The official plan to release the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer this coming Monday, but some dude with a camera phone spoiled those plans and put their shaky, grainy version with Portuguese subtitles out into the interwebs.  Zack Snyder reacted by giving the fans what we want, a peek at the trailer.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

APATOW-articleLarge

The guy who brought us ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin‘, ‘Knocked Up‘, and ‘Funny People‘ has a new film called ‘Trainwreck‘. Yes, Judd Apatow is back in the director’s seat again, this time with the beautiful comedienne Amy Schumer in the lead role. Apatow has really evolved as a filmmaker since ‘The 40 Year Old Virgin‘ in telling better and more personal stories of relationships, but still having those hilarious dick jokes and gross-out gags to make us belly laugh.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Perks of Being A Wallfllower’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Perks of Being A Wallflower’ is hands down one of my favorite films of the year.  I haven’t seen such a genuine coming of age high school movie since the late John Hughes was making his films about being a teenager.  Director and writer Stephen Chbosky hit a home run with  ’The Perks of Being A Wallflower’.  I haven’t fallen in love with characters like this since HBO’s ‘Six Feet Under’ was on television.  I did not want this film to end.
