Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

Run-Down of Planet Comicon in Kansas City!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 16th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

This weekend held a pretty great event, no I’m not talking about the most epic Pi day to end all Pi days, but the Kansas City Planet Comicon!!! Celebrities, creators and throngs of fans made the trip to KC to revel in the glory that is and will always be a celebration of all things pop culture and all things très geek. Celebrity guests consisted of Cary Elwes (‘The Princess Bride‘), Michael Rooker (‘The Walking Dead‘), Karen Gillan (‘Doctor Who‘), Stephen Amell (‘Arrow‘) and Scott Wilson (‘The Walking Dead‘) among many others and was a serious draw for fans. Not everyone goes to a con just to see celebs, others view it as a networking event, a place to share their craft or just as a reason to go all out with the cosplay and know they will be among others doing the same. Whatever the reason, fans congregated en masse at Bartle Hall for the weekend.

Alan Ritchson Panel Q&A From Wizard World Comic Con!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 12th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

alan-ritchson-hunger-games-catching-fire

 

This should be the last article I have to write about the epic event that was Wizard World Comic Con in Tulsa, Oklahoma this last weekend. The entire event was so energetic and exciting! Cosplayers far and wide showing off their hard work, time and lots of money in their creative costumes. For all the little posers that call yourselves geeks because you wear glasses or have gone to see some superhero movies, you’re an absolute disgrace to the title and we reach a level of unconsentatneous, that is to say “disagreement”. If you’re a geek, then I have no terminology for what some of these fans should be called, then.  You might dress as Gandalf to go to a party, but I met a guy that made up his own wizard name and costume, complete with vine covered staff and stayed in costume ALL. DAMN. DAY. He’s in the food court holding his beard back while he eats nachos and the beautiful people walk by smirking while they wear some face paint, a character t-shirt  and their underwear. How in the world can one dressed up person poke fun at another one? I’ll tell you how, because the smirking people are just posers.

If the topic came up of two particular California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers, there has to be one name that comes to mind, right? ‘CHiPs‘ is indeed what we’re talking about in this article. When you look at all the sitcoms from earlier decades and the films that were made from them, cheese was the main ingredient. Be it cheddar, provolone or gouda, they were cheesy. Thankfully the filmmakers behind this remake is purposely driving the project in a very different direction.

NBC’s ‘State of Affairs’ Loses Showrunner!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

state-of-affairs-keyart-promo

 

When I saw the headline that Ed Bernero had stepped down as showrunner for the Katherine Heigl vehicle ‘State of Affairs‘ on NBC, I originally thought, brashly, the blame was to place on Heigl, who is notoriously difficult to work with.

Turns out Heigl had nothing to do with the clashes on set. It was mainly disagreements with creative matters between Bernero and creator/executive producer Joe Carnahan. Bernero was brought on to help steer the thriller set in Washington, D.C.  That features Heigl as A CIA officer plucked from the field to become the president’s daily briefer, assuming responsibility for targeting America’s most critical threats while navigating the unique lifestyle that comes with such a high-powered job. All the while, she is investigating the circumstances regarding the death of her fiancé. Alfre Woodard is featured as President Payton.

Alcon Entertainment has put out the offer to Harrison Ford to reprise his role as Rick Deckard from ‘Blade Runner‘, the hit sci-fi film from 1982 by director Ridley Scott. Since Scott released ‘Prometheus‘, which was the prequel to the ‘Alien‘ franchise, and we all saw that it did well enough at the box office to warrant a few sequels, Hollywood wanted to revive his other sci-fi film ‘Blade Runner‘. Now that project is gaining much more steam.

It’s official. Director Olivier Megaton and actor Liam Neeson will return for the third installment of the ‘Taken‘ franchise. I guess Megaton loved Forest Whitaker in ‘Bloodsport‘ and ‘Ghost Dog‘, so he has asked Whitaker to be in the third film. I imagine he’ll say yes, because what else is Forest up to, besides winning Oscars now?

CBS has finalized a production order for the 2014-2015 season already committing to 13 episodes. Gilligan originally created this at least 10 years ago. Sony will co-produce with CBS TV Studios, with Gilligan, Shore and ‘Breaking Bad’sMark Johnson all set to Executive Produce.

Film Review: ‘Fast & Furious 6’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

fast_and_furious_6-wide

Universal’s biggest film franchise has hit number six with more than $1.5 billion in previous sales. And it looks like this new sequel/prequel will even push that amount further into another billion, despite its awful dialogue and numerous over-the-top, zany action sequences, which seems to make the audience laugh more often than cause suspense. That being said, this film does deliver what the audience has wanted since the first film. That is all of the original actors are back this time, which includes Michelle Rodriguez. I have no doubt this will score big at the box office. At least Universal seems to think so, as they have already greenlit part 7, which will be released next July and promises more stars and bigger action.

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Superbad’ and ‘Easy A’ actress Emma Stone has just signed on to a new film called ‘Little White Corvette written by Michael Diliberti who wrote the screenplay to ’30 Minutes or Less’.  And it seems that GK Films purchased the the film for $1 million dollars up front for starters.  I’m guessing this happened since Emma Stone might get nominated for an Oscar for her role in ‘The Help’ as well as her upcoming appearance in the new Spider-Man film.  So, with Emma signing on to the film, the studio is all behind this film.

Please welcome our newest writer to the Boomstick Staff, Jonathon Kimbrell.  Not only is Jon a writer, but he is also an amazing artist with his work shown around the world.  He is the next Warhol.  See his work HERE. His favorite films are that of the blaxploitation kind and his musical tastes fall in the Sheryl Crowish, Pre-LA Law, Post Partridge Family, Susan Day kinda thing.  He went to the Tom Petty show last night in Dallas and here is what he had to say about it.

“Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers Bring Their ‘Mojo’ to Dallas”

The first thing you may be asking yourself as you begin to read this review is “What in the heck does Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers have to do with comics?” The answer is absolutely nothing, but if you are a real comics fan, chances are you love music and entertainment just the same. However, I’m sure that little ol’ band from Los Angeles read a few comics in their day. So there…

After 30+ years of being in the music business it is still very apparent that Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers still have ‘Mojo’, as it’s well proven on their latest LP of the same name.

Tom Petty and the boys made their rescheduled stop in Dallas last night to a nearly packed house at the Superpages.com pavilion, and brought with them lovely weather, their classic tunes, and believe it or not, a full moon for their fans. Originally, this show was slated for May 2010 with supporting act, Joe Cocker, but was rescheduled due to previous scheduling conflicts. Since Joe Cocker couldn’t make the rescheduled tour stop, TP enlisted the services of Texas’ favorite sons, ZZ Top, to kick off a wonderful night of live music. Growing up as a child of the 1980s and the MTV generation, hearing ZZ Top perform radio gems like “Sharp Dressed Man”, “Tush”, and ” Legs”, I had the pleasure of reliving those moments of watching MTV 24/7, in hopes of catching another video featuring hot chicks in tight spandex. (Btw, what the hell ever happened to MTV?) In addition to ZZ Top classics and a few nuggets for the hard-core fans, the crowd was also treated to a special rendition of Jimi Hendrix’s cover of “Hey Joe”, celebrating the life Hendrix left 40 years ago (September 18th). I could see why, after hearing that performance, why Hendrix considered Billy Gibbons his favorite guitarist of all time.

Of course, The Heartbreakers would not be outdone. It’s always a great guessing game as to what song The Heartbreakers will open up with. Typically, the last few times I’ve seen them live it’s been a track off “Wildflowers”, but last night’s opener was a surprise with “Listen To Her Heart” in all of its Rickenbacker-toned glory. The show continued with Heartbreaker hits, like “Won’t Back Down”, “Mary Jane’s Last Dance”, “Refugee” and an all-time favorite of mine, “Learning To Fly” featuring Tom on a black acoustic that could have come from Johnny Cash’s personal collection. Fast forward to the real goods I was anxious to hear: live cuts from “Mojo”. They tore through a blistering mini set of “Jefferson Jericho Blues” (with Scott Thurston on harmonica that would make blues harmonica legend Little Walter sweat in excitement), “Running Man’s Bible” and album closer “Good Enough”, that showcased the absolute best guitar playing I’ve ever heard from lead guitarist (and credited co-captain of the band) Mike Campbell in the many years I’ve been listening to The Heartbreakers. That live performance alone could have been the show closer, but no Heartbreakers gig would be complete without encore performances of “Running Down A Dream” and “American Girl”, which was much more stripped down instrumentally that what you are used to hearing on the radio.

After two hours of performing just a sliver of their 30 some odd years worth of sing-a-long worthy hits, a show that was shorter than their usual live performances, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers gave Dallas another memorable evening of live grooves, proving once more they are America’s Greatest Rock n’ Roll Band, and that their ‘mojo’ is here to stay.

4K UHD Review: Westworld Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE SERIES


HBO’s new flagship show ‘Westworld‘ entered with a big bang in its first season. Since ‘Game of Thrones‘ is ending soon, HBO was ahead of the game and needed its new sci-fi action original show and ‘Westworld‘ was its name. That rhymed a little bit. Based on Michael Crichton’s story and film from 1973 of the same name, ‘Westworld‘ takes a theme park (much like Disneyland) to the next level. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you entered the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ ride at Disneyland.

Film Review: ‘Florida Project’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 26th, 2017

The Florida Project is the most important movie of 2017. It is a beautiful look at the resiliency and hope of childhood. It is also the most powerful depiction of a segment of the American population often overlooked in America and certainly passed over in film. Not outright poverty but just a group of people doing enough to survive.

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.

Written by: Bryan Kluger…..

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

Written By: Dan Moran….

There have been tweets and style articles written about Ryan Gosling’s jackets over the past year, but after seeing Blade Runner 2049 last night, are we sure he’s ever read a script? Would it really be so ridiculous to assume that almost every role that Ryan Gosling has ever played was based on his agent just laying two jackets out and Ryan deciding which one was better? More importantly, is Ryan Gosling even a good actor? Are we sure his jackets aren’t giving him this power?

An investigation has been opened.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Ghost Story’!

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion is written by Audrey Evans.)

Fresh off the wings of his most commercial movie to date, Pete’s Dragon (2016), Director David Lowery floats back to his Indie roots with the dreamy fantasy drama, ‘A Ghost Story.’  This ponderous portrait of life, loss and existence will undoubtedly make art enthusiasts coo over its alluring framework and vision, but for those anticipating an intensely haunting experience, be prepared for more mood than material. Time is of the essence in this story; the right state of mind and patience will reward you, that is, if you’re still alert before the leisurely picture reaches its point.

Theatre Review: ‘Fun Home’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Fun Home‘ won Best Musical at the Tony awards in 2015 and is now on the traveling road circuit across America. With a great message, good performances, and a couple of good songs, ‘Fun Home‘ is enjoyable, sweet, and tragic, but maybe not the big award winner it was a couple of years ago. In fact, I think this story would’ve been better told in a more intimate setting, and not the big amazing theatres it’s been playing at. With a very simple set and a very intimate story, I never really felt a sense of connection. ‘Fun Home‘ is a coming-of-age story of a woman who comes out as a lesbian and her gay father who struggles with his current family and coming out of the closet.

Straight out of the slums of suburbia, music-video Director Geremy Jasper serves up his feature film debut with ‘Patti Cake$’, a fresh princess tale of a maverick white rapper, Killa P, a.k.a. Patti (Danielle Macdonald). Pining to get away from her grungy surroundings and struggling family life, Patti sets off on a journey for a piece of the limelight with an unlikely pair. Perfectly mixed with a memorable soundtrack, wit and style, ‘Patti Cake$‘ manages to commend the craft of a genre that’s rightfully earned its place in Americana, while concurrently challenging the notions of race in music.

4K UHD Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

First off, my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. I love the weird, oddball, and sometimes anti-hero characters so much, the dialogue, and the feel of the whole movie, that I really connected to it and enjoyed it on every level. This group of heroes are not the norm and I relish in all their conflicts, endearing moments, and witty banter. That brings us to Vol. 2 that reunites all of our favorite characters as they go on missions to save the galaxy.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #17!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 4th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This scene cracks me up every time I see it, and I’ve probably seen it over 250 times. Before Trey Parker and Matt Stone became household names, rich, famous, and award winners for South Park and Book of Mormon, they made a tiny independent comedy film called Orgazmo. This was their second film after the college movie Cannibal: The Musical.

Vin Diesel is Remaking Miami Vice!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 2nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I guess since NBC is a fast sinking ship down into the ocean, it has to reboot its own vintage TV shows. This time, it’s with Miami Vice, which was a hit action-crime television series in the 1980s that spawned a huge fandom, music, and fashion. In 2006, director Michael Mann remade Miami Vice on the big screen with Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell. To add insult to injury, Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan are producing this reboot, both of which have been involved in all of the Fast and Furious films.

Film Review: Dunkirk!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

There’s never been a war film like Dunkirk, which I’d say is a masterpiece in filmmaking, lead by Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy). Even though Dunkirk cost $150 million to make, you really wouldn’t know it, as it’s simplistic, yet grand view of the Battle and Evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940 is perfectly captured here. Dunkirk is why we still go to the movies. It’s one of the most intense movies I’ve ever seen and is one of the reasons to get out and see it in IMAX. Other war films try add sweeping music to add an emotional effect or certain camera angles to drum up more dramatic suspense.

Film Review: A Ghost Story!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Fresh off the wings of his most commercial movie to date, Pete’s Dragon (2016), Director David Lowery floats back to his Indie roots with the dreamy fantasy drama, ‘A Ghost Story.’  This ponderous portrait of life, loss and existence will undoubtedly make art enthusiasts coo over its alluring framework and vision, but for those anticipating an intensely haunting experience, be prepared for more mood than material. Time is of the essence in this story; the right state of mind and patience will reward you, that is, if you’re still alert before the leisurely picture reaches its point.

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Celebrate the Life of George Romero!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan and Jana here….

George A. Romero 1940-2017

What a sad day this is. Just the other day, I was thinking and hoping that George Romero had one more zombie film in him left. That’s not the case as the Godfather of the zombie genre and one of the best filmmakers in the horror genre has died today at the age of 77 from lung cancer. With the past few years, the zombie genre has infiltrated every form of media. The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and tons zombie epics have come in the forms of comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. There wouldn’t be any of this, if it weren’t for George Romero who brought us a super small budget film in 1968 called Night of the Flesh Eaters, later changed to Night of the Living Dead, which gave us the zombie we know today.

It looks like Disney is releasing more in 4K UHD since they announced their first 4K release with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 the other day. I expect the flood gates to open up real soon, which means, Pixar, 2D animated classics, Marvel, and LucasFilm releases will be coming out in 4K. Bittersweet news, I know. Sweet, because it will look amazing in 4K finally. Bitter, because the wallet will take a big hit. Expect to purchase the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales‘ in 4K UHD on October 3rd with the digital version releasing on September 19th.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #11!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 12th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

When David Wain, Michael Showalter, and Michael Ian Black showed up on the entertainment scene, they brought comedy into a new direction with their unique humor and jokes in the Stella shorts. If you haven’t seen those, I highly suggest you check those out. A little bit later on, they made a tiny movie called Wet Hot American Summer, which became an instant beloved cult classic that has spawned multiple sequels/prequels in tv series form on Netflix. Speaking in terms of specific scenes though, one in particular comes to mind that makes me laugh out loud every time I see and think about it.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #9!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

One of my favorite pastimes is singing out loud while driving or riding in the car with someone. I imagine most of us at one point or another have belted out our favorite tunes by ourselves or with our friends in the car, no matter how short a trip. There’s just something fun about singing along with our favorite musicians at the top of our lungs. Perhaps the best scene dedicated to singing in the car with your friends was conceived by Penelope Spheeris who gave us the iconic and amazing documentaries The Decline of Western Civilization that took an in depth and personal look at the punk rock scene. If you haven’t seen these films, I highly suggest you do immediately.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #8!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m sure there are going to be a ton of Martin Scorsese directed scenes in this column, but the first one is definitely from Casino, which had Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci come together for a third time to make a film again. With the huge success of Goodfellas, De Niro and Pesci basically play very similar characters to that film, but this one is set in Las Vegas in the Tangiers casino, which is a fake casino, but based off the real life people and Italian mafia they were all connected to. Casino is a fascinating film and one of the better gangster movies of all time.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #5!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

baseball-game-ofotcn

Was Randle McMurphy a hero or an anti-hero. It’s a fine line for sure, but I’d like to think R.P. McMurphy was a good guy deep down, even though he was a bit off-kilter. In fact, it’s been stated and written down many times before that his arch rival Nurse Ratched is one of the most horrific villains in movie history. McMurphy, played by a 30-something Jack Nicholson is an amazing character. He’s passionate, creative, fun, spontaneous, and has no filter with what he thinks or says. Some would say he is a genius in this regard. Hell, he did convince a ton of people that himself and the rest of the psychiatric patients were indeed famous professors and doctors to the townsfolk as they stole a boat and went sailing.

Strung 20 feet high over the center of squared circle, there hangs a metal briefcase with a contract inside. That contract guarantees one WWE superstar a match at anytime, anywhere for the biggest championship in the business. On July 18th in 2010, WWE held their first ever Money in the Bank PPV held in Kansas City, which was met with an abundant amount of praise. The WWE superstars must climb a very tall ladder and unhook the briefcase to win the match. There are no rules, no disqualifications, and all weapons and interferences are legal.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Blu-ray Review: Fist Fight

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 3.31.40 PM

THE FILM

Before I get into this, I need to say that I’m a huge fan of Charlie Day and Ice Cube. They have a lot of talent that spans different genres and keep delivering on each film they make. That’s not the case with Fist Fight though, which I must say is NOT their fault. Ice Cube is great in his role as Mr. Strickland, a high-school history teacher who is not above of cursing in class or taking an axe to a student’s desk with a room full of students. On the other hand is Charlie Day playing the straight and narrow guy who hates confrontation named Andy Campbell who seems to be the world’s coolest English teacher, but is lost in this movie.

Ever since Keanu Reeves jumped into the role of John Wick in 2014, we all have wanted a sequel in the worst way. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch created a monster of a franchise with that film that brought the action genre back to a high point. That first film had a simple story and some of the best action sequences in a long time. Some bad guys steal John Wick’s car and kill his precious puppy dog a few days after his wife dies. Not knowing John Wick is the best assassin in the world, Wick sets out on revenge and literally kills everybody. It was just so good and showed the world what everyone secretly wants to do if some jerk killed your dog. The first film had a modest budget of only $20 million, but ended up making almost $90 million, which leads us to future sequels.

Ah, the age old question: ‘Are we alone in the universe?’ In the film ‘Life,’ a diverse team of astronauts try to find a definitive answer to that query and volunteer for a daring mission to outer space. After successfully retrieving a sample from Mars, they discover a single cell organism amongst it, which could prove the existence of life outside the realm of our planet. The explorers immediately begin conducting scientific experiments on the fast developing extra-terrestrial; affectionately calling it Calvin. However, their fondness is soon erased when the creature suddenly demonstrates it’s not there to make friends, and the false sense of confidence it’s lured them into could cost them their lives.

THE FILM

Moana‘ is the latest animated film from Disney, releasing a few months after their big hit ‘Zootopia’. No matter what film Disney releases, the usual messages and tone are consistent in every film. However, Disney magically manages to make each film feel very fresh, unique, and original with excellent characters, animation, and story lines that not only captivate me with each film, but to the masses as well. ‘Moana’ is no different here, as it looks visually stunning, as well as have an top notch story with excellent voice talent and songs.

THE FILM

Pinocchio‘ is hands down one of the best films ever made. And it was made by Walt Disney more than 70 years ago in animated form. That’s no joke. On the surface, ‘Pinocchio‘ seems to be about a wooden toy who wants to be a real boy, but right below the surface, there is so much going on, that I cant help but think that Walt himself and his collaborators had many more things to say with this film, which is to say the least, very different than most Disney movies out there – even today.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-30 at 2.17.21 PM

The road to Wrestlemania is officially underway as the 2017 Royal Rumble has a winner. Perhaps the second biggest WWE event of the year, the winner of the Rumble goes on to the main event of Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of them all. This 29th Royal Rumble took place in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome and had over 50,000 people in attendance. Before the Rumble match itself, there were several championship matches with interesting outcomes, which should tell the tale of what’s to come at Wrestlemania 33 in April. Now here’s a taste of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Royal Rumble 2017.

Hey guys, Jana here,

T2 Trainspotting‘ is a sequel to the 1996 film ‘Trainspotting‘. Danny Boyle is back to direct the same crew, Ewan McGregor, Ewan Bremner, Jonny Lee Miller and Robert Carlyle. The films have been based on Irvine Welsh’s novels ‘Trainspotting‘ and T2 on ‘Porno‘. I’m a big fan of all things ‘Trainspotting‘, the actors, director and…the soundtrack.

Film Review: ‘Patriots Day’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Dan M., here….

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-11-31-05-am

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was born in Massachusetts (moved in middle school) love all the sports teams and have close to 40 families members in and around the outskirts of Boston. The only reason I disclose this is because I watched the news closely during this whole ordeal, read two books on the events/survivors, and caught the excellent HBO doc that premiered late last year. I’m not an expert on the event but I feel like I know a bit more than a casual viewer. Most importantly I wasn’t there. I don’t know anyone who was lost. I can’t imagine what it is like to see a tragic event in your life monetized into a film so I am reviewing this strictly as a fan of movies and how it was portrayed as a movie. The politics, timing, and ramifications of turning events like this into films are for others to debate.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

a1kazv9rhrl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

We’ve Got The First Peek At ‘Baywatch’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 8th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

From Seth Gordon, the director responsible for ‘Horrible Bosses‘ and ‘Identity Thief‘, comes ‘Baywatch‘, the big-screen incarnation of the small-screen hit that ran for 11 seasons. I’d be hard-pressed to give you a description of the series as it was basically just beautiful people, like Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, running on the sand. I always thought it aired late at night, in syndication, as an *aid* to help teenage boys go to sleep.

WWE: TLC 2016 in Dallas!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 5th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

205_tlc_12042016ej_4165-7db86e24eda82a9d788ce93bac3a469e-1200x675

WWE has just finished its 8th TLC pay-per-view right here in Dallas, TX. No, TLC does not mean Tender Loving Care or even the R&B group from the 90s. It stands for Tables-Ladders-Chairs and is considered the “hardcore” PPV of the year for WWE. This was a Smackdown Live brand PPV event where every championship title was on the line. Between chair matches, ladder matches, table matches, and an all-encompassing TLC match to end the night, it’s no doubt that each and every superstar will be sore for next few days after all of their bodies were flung into these steel and wooden pieces of furniture. The event took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX to a big crowd, however it was far from a sell-out. That didn’t stop the crowd from cheering and booing their favorite superstars at all, even though it wasn’t as crazy a crowd as ‘Wrestlemania 32‘.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Space Jam’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

If you grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, you probably had a Michael Jordan poster, trading card, sneaker, or action figure of one of the greatest athletes and basketball players to have ever lived. The man defied gravity, broke barriers, and even danced with Michael Jackson. Jordan “retired” from basketball to give the MLB a shot, but shortly returned to the NBA soon after that. In his hiatus from the NBA, Michael Jordan got his own film with Warner Bros. with ‘Space Jam‘, where he would star alongside the Looney Tunes in a family adventure.
