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‘.

by Gumbercules9000 on May 13th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

gremlins

This was eventually going to happen as this project reboot has been trying get off the ground for a number of years.  Well, the day has finally come to jump start this ‘Gremlins‘ project with the help of a little production company in Hollywood known as Warner Bros. Some executives have wanted to make a direct sequel where others have wanted to completely reboot the series from scratch.  It looks like the latter won out.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have previously reported that Stephen King’s ‘It’ is being remade into a theatrical film.  It will be a two part film series with Cary Fukunaga directing.  Fukunaga is most known for directing ‘Jane Eyre’.  Fukunaga will also co-write the script with Chase Palmer who adapted Frank Herbert’s ‘Dune’ recently.  Seth Grahame-Smith will be producing the picture according to THR.  I’m on the fence about this project.  I don’t have high hopes for this considering the crew.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Bohemian Rhapsody may be something that we connect with ‘Wayne’s Wold‘, and for good reason, but Mike Myers is not content to leave it at that. The jokester is courting director Bryan Singer and negotiating for a role in a film about the greatest of the great, Queen.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Straight from it’s dynamic debut where it premiered January 21, 2018, at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section, comes ‘Hereditary‘ to theaters nation wide June 8th, 2018. It’s a combination drama/mystery/horror film that will make anyone take a second look at their family. The writer director Ari Aster is the man behind this film, both from his pen and his artistic vision that brought the project to fruition. This is Aster’s first feature length film after helming and writing   a handful of short films. With positive reviews coming in, it seems his first attempt at a full length film was a success, at least that’s what the 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes would suggest. I’m sure that’s a relief for PalmStar Media (‘Collateral Beauty‘), Windy Hill Pictures, and A24 (‘Lady Bird‘, ‘The Florida Project‘, ‘The Disaster Artist‘) who were the production companies backing the flick.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

A Deeper look into the ‘The Holiday’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2017

In 2006 a little movie by the name of ‘The Holiday’ was released unto the world from the place where all darkness flows. It now signifies the start of “Holiday Movie Season” for countless women across the globe. I believe it is solely responsible for the Hallmark Channel’s holiday film slate every November-December. However, the imitators don’t even come close to the unique mess this film is. I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie in one full sitting the past 5 years but it has been in such a rotation in my home that I’ve caught it in enough chunks to have seen it at least 10-12 full times since it came out in 2006. I really want to break down the absurdity of this movie to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

Streep + Hanks + Spielberg = ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

The first trailer and poster for the film ‘The Post‘ is standing straight up. It’s a big deal, because it has Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in the lead roles with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. That’s a powerhouse right there. The film will release on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays, but really, they want to get it in for Oscar consideration. The film releases everywhere next year on January 12. In addition to Hanks and Streep, the film stars Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.

Amazon is in the CIA business, well the business of running a TV series based on a CIA hero – Jack Ryan. The streamer ordered 10 episodes  straight-to-series for the drama that will star John Krasinski as Ryan. The project comes from Carlton Cuse, writer Graham Roland, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, Skydance Media and Paramount TV. Three scripts have been submitted by Cuse and Roland which likely helped with the straight-to-series order, not as much as snagging Krasinski for the lead though.

We all remember how awful that was, Taco Flavored Kisses and all. This new film ‘Careful What You Wish For‘ stars Nick Jonas (Yes, that Jonas), who plays a guy named Doug who is about to go to college, and is spending his time working at a wealthy vacation resort for the summer.

“I get no pleasure out of the prospect or the preparation. I’m covered in hives, I’ve showered four times, and for what? Some guy who doesn’t even have the brains to buy a Zagat so we don’t wind up in a restaurant that’s really just a front for a cocaine laundering ring?” The GEEK DEAL OF THE DAY is the Complete Series DVD set of ‘Gilmore Girls‘. This DVD set comes with a ton of bonus features, which you can see below. Unfortunately, this series is not on Blu-ray, and there are no plans for it to be released in high definition yet. Sure, the series is currently on Netflix, but it doesn’t have the xtras, and of course, at some point, it will leave Netflix. Point is, this set is so cheap right now, that it comes out to around $6.00 per season. You can’t beat that for one of the BEST shows on television. I’m a huge fan of the show and have watched it through several times. The characters are just so likable and the dialogue and writing are incredible. Take advantage of this AWESOME DVD set, because it won’t last long.

*** I know the price says $62.99 on here, but if you click it…you’ll see that it is actually $43.99. ***

Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’!

Janet W., Here…

1D274906429135-x_tdy_fifty_shades_trailer_140724.blocks_desktop_large

Fifty Shades of Grey is fifty shades of annoying.  Opening with a clear comparison of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) in the manner that they start their day.  Grey is precise and disciplined while Steele is clumsy and frumpy.  Because of her sick college roommate, Kate (Eloise Mumford), Steele is tasked with interviewing Grey.  Grey will be the commencement speaker for their college graduation ceremony.  Ms. Nervous Knots is clearly out of her league and this intrigues Grey.  This film is nearly a point-by-point attempt at a re-vamping Wild Orchid (1989) with a more screwed up and twisted James Wheeler (Mickey Rourke) and more dingy and childish Emily Reed (Carré Otis).  Don’t get excited, because it is not Wild Orchid. Touch is a major deal-breaker/game-changer in both films.

THE SERIES

It’s sad to see this amazing gangster show come to an end. It’s been a great five years, and this last season did a lot of things right in regards to wrapping up story lines and character arcs. I remember watching the first episode, which was directed by Martin Scorsese and thinking this is one of the better pilot episodes I’ve ever seen. I still think that to this day. There have been some great characters over the years, and it was sad to see how some of them ended up, but make no mistake, this fifth and final season hit its mark. HBO shortened this final season to only eight episodes and focused on wrapping up each character with an emphasis on Nucky Thompson’s (Steve Buscemi) childhood, upbringing, and how he became who he is.

Well luckily for us, there is a brand new horror anthology on the horizon and it’s titled ‘Tales of Halloween‘. It will feature a ton of actors and directors from the horror genre as far back as the 60s thru present and will tell a few different tales (ten to be exact) that all take place in the same town where people are attacked by various monsters.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Film Review: ‘Innocence’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

1280x720-9xm

I admit it. I’m a complete sucker for the supernatural horror genre. I love fully engrossing myself in the wake of these ghost and demonic stories. Even though this is the one genre that has me leaving my turtle night light on at night, I can’t help myself but watching every single film I can, relating to the supernatural. So I was pleasantly surprised to see a slow burning horror film from writer-director Hilary Brougher give us a unique take on this particular variety of film. Based off of Jane Mendelsohn’s novel of the same name and with the help of writer Tristine Skyler, Brougher and Skyler deliver some very creepy moments, despite an over-the-top third act in this horror-drama genre film called ‘Innocence‘.

Seth Grahame-Smith has made a name for himself in the book world and in the film world. He was a writer and producer since around 2000 and his been a part of projects like ‘The Hard Times of RJ Berger‘ and ‘Dark Shadows‘. Then came the big screen adaptation of his novel ‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter‘, from there he picked up several more projects. He is currently writing the ‘Beetlejuice‘ sequel for Director Tim Burton and signed on as a producer for the project. In a producer capacity, he is involved in the ‘It‘ remake, the ‘Gremlins‘ reboot and ‘Ninjago‘. I’ll spare you the argument I have against film remakes.

Monty Python Says Goodbye at O2 Arena in London!!!

Hi all, Jana here,

We were teased with knowledge it was being put together, we were tormented when we got to do the reddit live Q&A with the legends. Now it’s almost so close I can taste it! If you’re unsure of who I’m talking about let’s talk about how a 5-ounce bird possibly carry a 1-pound coconut? If you still are unsure of who this great group of people are, you should be banished. But seriously, this material has been around for 40 years, you should have to face the Black Knight. Don’t worry about his appearance, it’s just a flesh wound.

Film Review: ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 13th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

godzilla_2014_poster_51784

 It has been sixty years since ‘Godzilla‘, the true king of all monsters first graced us with his appearance on the big screen. He definitely made a big impact on audiences around the world and spawned 31 sequels and remakes since then. Director Gareth Edwards brings that number to 32 with his epic and dark toned reboot that is sure to please fans young and old and have them roaring with joy as they exit the theater. Edwards was Hollywood’s top  choice to reboot this franchise after everyone saw his 2010 film called ‘Monsters‘, which focused on two lost lonely souls who have to trek through a quarantined zone in Mexico, while evading giant tentacled monsters.

Jana B., Here….

 beetlejuice

When you think of the collected works of Tim Burton, certain projects stand out. If you ask my daughter, she’ll point out Alice in Wonderland, my son will give props to, his favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you ask me, I’ll mention the Batman movies, Edward Scissorhands or Beetlejuice. There has been a lot of talk about Burton, Michael Keaton and Beetlejuice lately. In particular, whether or not Burton would like to film a sequel. He is already a producer of the proposed movie with David Geffen. I don’t blame Warner Brothers for giving this one to Burton to consider. How could you make a trip back to the universe of Beetlejuice without his directing? It would be like eating steak with plastic wrapped around your tongue…all of the fill of food, but none of the flavor. Come to think about it, that’s kind of like sex with a condom, too!

Film Review: ‘The Internship’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 6th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

The-Internship-Wallpaper-01

Much like ‘The Wedding Crashers‘, there is big potential for a successful comedy and tons of gut busting laughs from Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. And just like last time the two were together, we get a bland paint-by-the-numbers comedy that provides only a couple of laughs that is predictable and lacks any real entertainment that lasts more than a couple of seconds. Not making the situation any better, this comedy has a PG-13 rating in order to bring a broader and family friendlier audience to the mix, and the entire movie feels like an ode to Google, more than a comedy. That being said, Vaughn and Wilson should still draw a decent opening weekend.

Hey there, little rock n’ roll devils, Napkin Art here…

Alright, so I realize I’m a few days behind on talking about the Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds show from March 14th, but hell, I’m still reeling from how awesome the experience was. Needed a few extra days to process it all.

As anticipated, Australia’s dark and lovely darlings, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, hit up SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium in support of their 15th album release, Push The Sky Away, with guns, fists and instruments blazing, like it was a real gunfight at the OK Coral. No eardrum or blackened soul was spared during the two hour set. Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan’s Review of ‘Dark Shadows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 9th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

The Dukes of Hazzard, The Addams Family, and the A-Team are all television shows that have become feature films over the past several years. The latest television show to be remade on the big screen is the 60’s television series, Dark Shadows. With its dark humor, strange characters, and gothic set pieces, how could off-beat director Tim Burton resist?  Unfortunately, Dark Shadows proves yet again that even though you have an expansive budget, amazing set pieces, and good actors, you don’t necessarily get a quality film.  Dark Shadows fails to humanize any of the characters besides Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp), and although it started off as a fun quirky film, it never improved or advanced after the first ten minutes.

Like a good scotch I like a good Jazz record. Smooth, with a sophisticated bite, or with a little bit of age so as to taste and savor a bit of the barrel’s flavor and characteristics. I enjoy these these qualities in my Jazz records, too, and Verve Records has been known to be a fine label when it comes to Jazz music; sophisticated and exciting all within the same rhythm of breath and beat.

Classic Waxxx: Ten Years After “Ssssh.”

by NapkinArt on Aug 2nd, 2011

When one starts talking about the British Invasion, one of two things come to mind: 1) The American Revolution and 2) The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks, The Who and every other hit rock n’ roll band that came to America from the ‘other side of the pond’ in the 1960s. However, little do people realize that Alvin Lee and his band Ten Years After also hails as part of the musical British Invasion.

Now, I will admit that my knowledge of Ten Years After was quite limited, mostly limited to their one live performance of “I’m Going Home” from the “Woodstock” documentary in 1970, a performance I liked initially, but became bored with after subsequent viewings. But, suffice to say I’m happy to have acquainted myself with more of their catalog over the last couple of years, and my opinion has drastically changed for the better. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi Bryan Here….

The sequel to the hit comedy ‘The Hangover’ is out in all theaters and is definitely funny, but with a price.  I know most of you have seen the sequel already and yes I am late getting this review out, but I have had tons of things going on.  But alas, the review is here.  First thing to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that you will most definitely laugh wildly all the way through the film.  The second thing you need to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that it is the exact same film as the first ‘Hangover’ movie to a tee, except it takes place in Thailand rather than Vegas.

Writer Seth Grahame- Smith known for his novel, Pride Prejudice and Zombies also wrote a novel called Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.  20th Century Fox has acquired the rights to make this into a film in which Seth has already written the screenplay.


Tim Burton will produce while Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch/Wanted) will direct.


Pre production is already underway and the budget is right around $70 million dollars and will be in 3-D.


Fox did all they could to win this one, presenting a detailed pitch for the production, marketing and release of the picture. Beyond that, they one-upped other studios by putting on an elaborate presentation to impress the filmmakers: huge banners hung over the studio lot; parking spaces read “Parking for Vampire Hunters Only, Park at your own risk.”; bloody footprints led them to the meeting; silver bullets and bloody axes were placed around the offices; and so on.


Timur had to say this about the film:


“It is not a comedy at all – it is a very entertaining, epic history lesson for millions and millions of teenagers. If you remember Night Watch, it is maybe in the vein of that kind of movie. We are keeping the traditional look of Lincoln – the big hat and the beard. He has to be historically correct, but with a few special weapons.”


And here is Publisher’s Weekly mini review of the book:


“Seth Grahame-Smith inserts a grandiose and gratuitous struggle with vampires into Abraham Lincoln’s life. Lincoln learns at an early age that his mother was killed by a supernatural predator. This provokes his bloody but curiously undocumented lifelong vendetta against vampires and their slave-owning allies. The author’s decision to reduce slavery to a mere contrivance of the vampires is unfortunate bordering on repellent, but at least it does distract the reader from the central question of why the president never saw fit to inform the public of the supernatural menace.”
