by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ben-hur-8

We have been talking about the ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake for a while here at Boomstick HQ, and now we have heard a big piece of information on casting. First, let’s go over what we already know. We do know that MGM and Paramount have teamed up to make a big budget ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake with director Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Day Watch, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) to helm the film. We also reported  earlier last week that Morgan Freeman was cast in the film. He will play Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become the big bad chariot racer he turns out to be. And for a while, we were hearing that studio execs were putting out the offer to Tom Hiddleston (Loki from ‘The Avengers‘). But that’s not the case now.

Hey guys, Jana here,

So we’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to ever get another Incredibles movie and Pixar has finally granted our wish. The film isn’t slated to debut until June 15, 2018 we couldn’t expect much footage to be shared yet. What we do have is a teaser that is less than 60 seconds, but shows us that we’re at the same time-frame the original film ended. Either that or Jack-Jack just isn’t going to age, but John Lasseter revealed that the second film “starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on”. Read the rest of this entry »

Blu-ray Review: The Big Sick!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Film portion is written by Beka Perlstein:

If The Big Sick isn’t on your must see movie list, do yourself a favor and rewrite the list. This film is the real life love story of how actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) met his girlfriend and (spoiler alert) now wife, Emily Gordon. It’s not another Fault in Our Stars or Me Before You, it’s so much more than a love sick story. Behind the romantic comedy model is a story about a Pakistani immigrant who is struggling with identity, relationships, family, career and religion. To put it simply- he’s just trying to figure out this thing we call life.

Some people love his films. Some hate his films. No matter which side of the spectrum you’re on, you have to agree that every one of Terrence Malick’s films look exquisitely beautiful. With movies like ‘Tree of Life‘, ‘Knight of Cups‘, ‘The Thin Red Line‘, ‘Badlands‘, and ‘Days of Heaven‘, you can’t help but become entranced in the story, characters, and visual spectacle of Malick’s filmmaking process. His past few films have mostly shown a variety of characters who rarely say anything on screen, but instead narrate the movie as it goes along, giving a better visual masterpiece of cinema than a dialogue driven movie.

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.

Well it looks like Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. has an official title for the new Batman/Superman movie, which will be called ‘Dawn of Justice‘. I bet that means Dawn of the ‘Justice League‘, which Warner Bros. has been planning for quite sometime now. The film is set to open up on may 6th, 2016 and production has officially begun.

Suzanne Reviews ‘Won’t Back Down’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Educational reform is a difficult enough subject for policymakers to tackle. Nothing is black and white, no one is completely to blame or completely self-interested, and there are a tremendous number of problems and an infinite number of solutions. So in approaching a movie about the plight of public education today, it would be nice to see the subject treated with the nuance appropriate to actually reform the system. Unfortunately, Won’t Back Down misses this nuance and focuses on creating a good vs. evil environment with two sides that don’t work together to find a solution. Fine, it’s a movie – except this is a subject that requires some thought, and so should this movie.

Hi Bryan Here…

Hi ladies and gents.  Sorry this is a tad bid late from last week, but rest assured this week is on time and should be from now on.  Tons of great releases these past couple of weeks.  A few are exclusive only to Best Buy and I believe one or two on the list made my top 10 list of films of 2010.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!

Meet your New ‘Star Trek’ Captain!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 11.14.09 AM

It’s beyond me that there hasn’t been a ‘Star Trek‘ series in more than a decade. Even with all of the recent films, it would seem fitting to have a new series. I know, CBS has said they are doing a new series called ‘Star Trek: Discovery‘, which has been in and out of being made, but it looks like it’s gaining steam now – FINALLY! There is a new captain that will be played by Jason Isaacs.

WITNESS ME!!! Varèse Sarabande Records is Re-Releasing the original trilogy of the ‘Mad Max‘ films on vinyl in a 3-LP set. These albums came out in their respective years upon release, but are now fairly difficult to find and can be expensive. For those of you who love the original ‘Mad Max‘ soundtracks, this set will sure make it a lovely day for you. Below is all the information about the releases. Plus, you’ll get some Tina Turner greatness here. Note: There are only 2,000 copies that will be available, so act fast.

Get ready to enjoy an animated movie in a way we’ve never enjoyed one before. Very R-Rated and not at all appropriate for kids. Ladies, check your tampons at the door because this is the red band trailer for ‘Sausage Party‘. A raunchy, hilarious look at the food we eat every day and this chick loves what she sees!

Tye Sheridan Takes the Lead in ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 24th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-02-24 at 10.06.47 PM

Ernest Cline’s book ‘Ready Player One‘ is one of the hottest projects in Hollywood right now. It promises to be one of the best Sci-fi films in a long time. It might be because that Steven Spielberg is directing it or it might be that Ben Mendelsohn and Olivia Cooke have signed on to star in the film too.

When Quentin Tarantino casts a movie, he pulls out all the stops and fills the project with Hollywood’s A-List, and ‘The Hateful Eight‘ is no exception. The project brought together some Tarantino favorites and some new to his work. Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern are the top-billed names and they make a fantastic ensemble that make up ‘The Hateful Eight‘ and you can bring it home on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on March 29, 2016.
