Film Review: ‘Tolkien’!!

by Janet White on May 10th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

“Even the smallest person can change the course of history.” – Lady Galadriel

 

Amazing words that continue to inspire people years after John Ronald Reuel Tolkien aka J. R. R. Tolkien’s (Nicholas Hoult) passing. From a very young age, Tolkien was a dreamer. Encouraged by his theatrical mother with her animated storytelling, Tolkien portrays its namesake as a person simultaneously living in two different worlds nearly all of the time. Set in England and France, the viewer gains insight into Tolkien’s beginnings and influences. Books were his constant companion that provided an escape from losing his father and later his mother. It is no wonder that Tolkien went on to write two of the most complex and fantastical books of all time. As an orphan, Tolkien meets the love of his life, Edith Bratt (Lily Collins) and his quest to find love, thrive in college, and eventually establish himself in a career takes off from there.

Best Movies of the First Half of 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2018

I’ve had the chance to see a ton of movies this year but still feel like I have missed out on some indie ones that are necessary to catch before December. Below is my list so far. I was really shocked with what a good year it has been for horror and movies staying with me in general. It is pretty rare that I think about a movie days after seeing it but this year there have been so many.

Film Review: ‘Paddington 2’!!

by Janet White on Jan 13th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Clouds part to reveal beautiful waterfalls and Uncle Patrizio and Aunt Lucy having a meal aloft on a rope bridge.  A cry is hear below and an adorable little cub is struggling to stay afloat.  The birth of Paddington’s family.  Fast forward to present day.  Life is grand; Paddington has it all. He lives with his wonderful family, the Browns, in beautiful London, and is surrounded by a neighborhood full of new friends. Up to his usual, calamitous antics, Paddington is in search of the perfect gift for his Aunt Lucy’s 100th birthday. Armed with his trusty red hat complete with, of course, a fresh-ish marmalade sandwich, Paddington is ready to steal your heart again. Paddington 2, in typical sequel fashion, reveals key elements of the past, particularly the origin of Paddington’s family.

Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world. Schools have both required and banned the reading for reasons of profanity and its message. Rebel in the Rye details Salinger’s (Nicholas Hoult) life and progression as a writer. From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

We all know the movies based on the books of J.R.R. Tolkien (‘The Lord of the Rings‘ and ‘The Hobbit‘ trilogies), but not many knew the man. Chernin Entertainment for Fox Searchlight have set Dome Karukoski at the task of directing a biopic of the author. Nicholas Hoult is the front-runner to take on the part of the gifted author.

Amazon Announces 4 Pilots Green-lit for Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 13th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

 dt.common.streams.StreamServer

Amazon jumped head-first into original programming with 5 pilots that were uploaded to their site where they encouraged viewers to watch and comment their opinions. I’m guessing they got the reaction they wanted as they have now picked four of the titles to give a series order. This includes the first dramas for their fledgling, innovative line-up with ‘The After‘ and ‘Bosch‘. Their new comedy series are ‘Mozart In The Jungle‘ and ‘Transparent‘. The fifth pilot that was not picked up, ‘The Rebels‘ comes from Ice Cube and Michael Strahan. From Amazon’s first pilot season saw eight comedies going to pilot while only two were picked up for series, ‘Alpha House‘ and ‘Betas‘. Of those two, ‘Alpha House‘ has been renewed for a second season and ‘Betas‘ has been discontinued.

Film Review: ‘Warm Bodies’

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 31st, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

new-uk-poster-for-warm-bodies-124023-1000-100

Jonathan Levine’s adaptation of Isaac Marion’sWarm Bodies‘ focuses more on an undead romance than any political or social issues, with having just enough blood and guts for genre fans.  I have to say that this zombie flick ranks right up there with some of the best living dead films ever made.  It’s original, fresh, and has an amazing soundtrack.  I have no doubt that this lovable zombie movie will make tons of money at the box office.

Film Review: ‘Cloud Atlas’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Cloud Atlas’ is not just a movie you view, it’s a full experience.  Only a few films can hold that title of being an experience and not just a film we casually watch on a weekend.  The Wachowski siblings and Tom Tykwer did a flawless job in adapting David Mitchell’s novel to the big screen.  I believe that ‘Cloud Atlas’ is a milestone in filmmaking with superb acting, an original way to tell multiple stories, and some of the best editing I have ever seen.  Not only is ‘Cloud Atlas’ a visual experience, but it is a spiritual experience, at least to me it was.  This 3 hour film is one of the better films of the past decade.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Here is a 6 minute trailer for ‘Cloud Atlas’.  This definitely looks epic, which is based on David Mitchell’s magnificent story, which spans 100’s of years.  Tom Hanks, Jim Broadbent, Halle Berry, Ben Whishaw, Jim Sturgess, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant star. It looks like Tom Hanks plays several different characters and Hugh Grant looks like something out of Mel Gibson’s ‘Apocalypto’.  The Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer directed this, which they brought us the ‘Matrix’ trilogy and ‘Speed Racer’.  This opens October 26th.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. Films announced include titles in the Galas and Special Presentations programmes. The announced films include 17 Galas and 45 Special Presentations, including 38 world premieres.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Pirates: Band of Misfits’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Aardman Studios proves once again that it can turn out a very charming and hilariously funny film that is fun for all ages.  The claymation is top-notch and mixed with that famous dry humor we have come to love from Peter Lord and his creations.  In the likes of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, Peter Lord’s The Pirates! Band of Misfits is a great and pleasurable adventure.

FINALLY the Wachowskis Return to Us!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Lana and Andrew Wachowski are diving back into the science fiction genre.

Yes.

YES.

…okay, so Speed Racer was awful. But then, we know to expect great things from the brother team that brought us The Matrix. We were just surprised, and it won’t happen again. I’m confident that they have another masterpiece in them.

Hi Bryan Here….

Word just in, negotiations have just concluded in that actor Ashton Kutcher will return to television and replace Charlie Sheen on the hit show “Two and Half Men”.  Kutcher has been doing feature films lately, but I guess series creators and execs have finally made a deal that will return the former “That 70’s Show” star back to the small screen.
