Molly’s Game‘ is the upcoming adaptation of the book of the same name by Molly Bloom, an Olympic-class skier who was, not just young and beautiful but the woman behind  the world’s most exclusive high-stakes poker game. She ran this for 10 years before being arrested in the middle of the night by 17 FBI agents hefting automatic weapons. This high-level game brought in not just Hollywood’s elite, but sports stars, business wizards and even the Russian mob. With everything stacking against her, the one ally she can count on is her criminal defense lawyer who learns there are more layers to Bloom than what the media lets on.

Who would have thought that the unassuming red envelopes peppering the post would prove such a force with a crippling bite, but Netflix has proven time and again why streaming services are here to stay, not only stay, but compete with big theaters. In the past we’ve seen sequels go straight to the VOD service, we’ve seen original series go the same and we’re seeing original films, first run releases sign with them for distribution rights. The streamer has one more mark to add to it’s tally with ‘Beasts Of No Nation‘.

Idris Elba Racing To The Small Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 1st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

idris-elba-ok

Idris Elba has a face that immediately calls to mind a number of characters and films. Maybe it’s BBC’s ‘Luther’, the ever-vigilant god Heimdall guarding Asgard in ‘Thor‘, ‘Prometheus‘, or ‘Pacific Rim‘, the point is, he makes everything memorable. This will be true when he toplines a documentary series about racing for Discovery Communications network.

Hi guys, Jana here,

If you’re not familiar with the name Idris Elba (‘Pacific Rim‘, ‘Thor‘) by now, you’ve probably just thawed out from the large block of ice you’ve been encased in for the last thousand years. If that’s the case, grab a hair dryer and keep reading.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

no-good-deed-trailer

Good gravy, man, this film looks so intense that I might have to cover my eyes through most of it. And I know we all love Idris Elba. He has  been excellent in everything has has said “yes” to in the past decade including playing Stringer Bell in HBO’sThe Wire‘, ‘Luther‘, Nelson Mandela, and ‘Pacific Rim‘. The guy has an epic level of charisma. But in this new film ‘No Good Deed‘, he is SCARY-AS-HELL!

‘Hobbs and Shaw’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 31st, 2019

“‘Hobbs and Shaw’ is a fun movie that deserves to be seen loud and with friends.”

I was watching the original Fast and Furious movie the other day and realized that film is now considered a drama with a car chase and a couple of gun blasts. I wouldn’t regard it is a big action movie anymore, which is odd to say. Over the past decade or more, these Fast and Furious movies have grown into mega-budget action blockbusters that tend to lean over how they can top the previous action sequence along with a couple of funny lines of dialogue. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy these movies on an over-the-top level where I can appreciate the insane spectacle on screen. It’s a fun break from the more serious stories I see. Now we have the first spinoff movie from that franchise called ‘Hobbs and Shaw‘, that stars the characters Luke Hobbs (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) from the Fast and Furious franchise.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Molly’s Game’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 28th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein)

Do you have a girl crush on Jessica Chastain? Do you have a man crush on Idris Elba? If you have any combination of the two, Molly’s Game is going to make you have all the feels. This is a well done film with all the right players and script that packs a punch. Aaron Sorkin (screenplay and first time director) has taken the novel Molly’s Game and turned it into a film that at a run time of two hours and twenty minutes seems fast paced and doesn’t waste your time. While I know literally nothing about poker, this movie kept me entertained and engaged because the story wasn’t the game-it was the players.

Film Review: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 22nd, 2018

Alright lets get the plot out of the way, shall we? Pacific Rim: Uprising takes place ten years after the final battle of the first film in which Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) gave his life to stop the Kaiju attacks. Stacker’s son, Jake, is played by John Boyega of Star Wars fame and is a promising Jaeger (the big robots) pilot who quit his training and does some underground criminal activity at the start of the film. The Jaeger program has evolved since we last saw the program where a new, younger crew defends the planet. A young girl creates her own Jaeger and is captured with Jake, which leads them to both join/rejoin the program. Of course a rogue Jaeger seems to be causing trouble and might be working with the Kaiju to reopen The Breach and release new monsters. Jake teams up with his former rival Nate (Scott Eastwood) and the young new recruits to stop the World from being destroyed and honor his father’s legacy.

Film Review: ‘The Mountain Between Us’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2017

Rebecca S., here….

In modern terms, a unicorn is a sought after item of idea that you can never have; a fabled creature and impossible to capture. The perfect date night movie is the unicorn of our times. Speaking in stereotypes, men are said to want comedy, death defying action-adventure, and it would be great if someone got shot or maimed. Women are said to want lighthearted flirting, sincere laughter and a beautiful backdrop in which a woman is swept off of her feet by a gorgeous man. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Mountain Between Us. The answer to your date night woes. A unicorn.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This is definitely on my radar now. Jeff Bridges and Chris Hemsworth, meaning The Dude and Thor are most likely going to star in a new film called Bad Times at the El Royale, which will be directed by Drew Goddard and released by 20th Century Fox. Despite the awesome two actors and the cool title, filmmaker Drew Goddard is one to watch for sure.
