The Brink

HBO, in a quick move, has given a series order to ‘The Brink‘. The comedy stars Jack Black (‘Tropic Thunder‘, ‘School of Rock‘) and Tim Robbins (‘The Shawshank Redemption‘ and ‘Mystic River‘), directed by Jay Roach (‘Meet The Parents‘, ‘Austin Powers‘) and executive produced by Jerry Weintraub (‘The Karate Kid’ franchise, ‘Oceans Eleven’ and the newly announced ‘Tarzan’). Now that we have the proven star power behind this project, we need talented writers to bring it to fruition. Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim Benabib are penning the script. Roberto Benabib has shown a master handle on writing a dark comedy with his successful stint at writing for the show ‘Weeds‘ and ‘Ally McBeal‘.

TV Review: The New ‘JACK RYAN’ Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2018

This weekend I had the time to watch the entire first season of Amazon’s new series Jack Ryan. Growing up I enjoyed all of the Harrison Ford versions of Jack Ryan and even liked the Ben Affleck iteration. The reboot attempt with Chris Pine fell pretty flat for me a few years back but I’ve always enjoyed the character. John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is a perfectly serviceable TV hero but is really bogged down by the story around him. In an effort to be optimistic, I will say that I am hopeful for the second season.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The most popular and well-known man in the world was and maybe still is Michael Jackson. He had fans all over the world and inspired not only the common folk, but many great musicians over the past 30 years years. Michael Jackson won tons of awards for his music, produced and created some of the best songs ever made, delivered the best music videos, and started a big charity called Heal the World. His life was in the tabloids constantly with hideous scum people making up stories that forced him to be a recluse for most of his life. He was just a man who became a father to three kids and when he was pushing 50 years old, he was more or less forced to perform 50 concerts as a way to make ends meet and provide for his family. Much has been said over the many years about Michael Jackson.

Film Review: ‘Black Mass’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 8.01.58 PM

It’s okay to look at ‘Black Mass‘ as a distant sequel to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movies. Both have bad guys, wars, guns, monsters, and Johnny Depp. Maybe I’m reaching a bit there, but it’s still fun to think about them as distant cousins in movies. The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger has been told a lot, especially recently. If you’re unfamiliar with who Bulger is, he was one of the most vicious and heinous human beings to ever walk the planet. He was even the FBI’s Most Wanted man for more than a decade, as he spent most of his time in Boston as a mafia boss who committed murder amongst other things.

Film Review: ‘Black or White’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

A family has a mother, father, and maybe children, a standard definition of a family.  A family is a group of people who are related to each other, yet another definition.  Nowhere in either definition is a mention of color, right?  Since the beginning of time families have blended nationality, ethnicity, and race.  This fact doesn’t make the families any less bound.

Watch Hugh Jackman in ‘Pan’ Trailer!!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

I am bringing you a trailer I have been waiting for since I heard about the film’s beginnings. I love fairy tales and bedtime stories, the heroes, the villains and the fights are the magic I grew up with. There was one villain that frightened me with a fear, that ultimately excited me with his wickedness. That villain and story are Captain Hook from Peter Pan.

Hey guys, it’s Jana.

Gosling Crowe

Let’s play a little game called ‘A few of my favorite things’. That’s right – YOU get a car! You get a car and yes, YOU GET A CAR! OK, so not quite like that. You don’t have to worry about my stating anything  about “Raindrops on Roses”.  My list begins with Burt Reynolds’ laugh, Comic BooksBeethoven – Preferably Piano Sonata No. 8 ‘Pathetique’ in C minor, all 3 movements, Good music. Not just ‘eh’ kind of music, but GREAT music, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Harry Connick, Jr.,  and the amazing Shane Black’s movies.

Added into that list is cute boys that can sing. Russell Crowe happens to fit that bill. I’ve no idea if Ryan Gosling can sing or not, but he is fun to look at. Crowe and Gosling have signed on board for a police drama ‘The Nice Guys‘ with ‘Iron Man 3‘ director Shane Black putting his vision to film.

If you haven’t seen the original film ‘Black Dynamite‘, you should highly consider taking a few hours from your weekend and watching it. It’s highly entertaining. From the big cult success of that film, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim picked up the storyline in the form of an animated series. Needless to say, the series was just as good as the film. Hell, the first episode had Black Dynamite fighting an evil version of The Jackson Five. The series will be available July 15, on Blu-ray and DVD and will Include the 10 First Season Episodes Plus  a Behind-The-Scenes Featurette, and an Original Pilot and Video Commentaries.

Hello, Jana here,

MICHAEL-JACKSON-michael-jackson-10317030-1082-1263

Most of the time, when a singer dies, their new material releases screech to a halt. Granted, this isn’t always the case. Look at The Beatles and their song, ‘Real Love‘, it was released in 1996 (which just happens to be the year I graduated high school). John Lennon died in 1980, so it can be safely assumed he wasn’t in a recording studio with the other Beatles hammering out new tunes. Musicians have hours and hours of recordings of songs in various level of completion. It may be a first sing-through, something they’ve worked on but can’t get just right, or something that is nicely polished and they just don’t have room on a current album for the extra track. Releasing songs that have been previously recorded but not released can be a bit of closure for producers that worked with the act, for band mates and ultimately for fans.

R.I.P. Karen Black!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Karen_Black

It sucks to write this, but Karen Black has just lost her battle with cancer a few minutes ago, according to her husband. Black was an amazing actress known for her work in the horror genre. She starred with Jack Nicholson in ‘Five Easy Pieces‘ and ‘Easy Rider‘. She also starred in ‘House of 1000 Corpses, The Day of the Locusts‘, and ‘Trilogy of Terror‘. She was an amazing woman and a badass actress. She will be missed greatly.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sony has finalized the deal to have ‘Iron Man 3‘ and ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘ director Shane Black to co-write and direct the next comic book adaptation of ‘Doc Savage‘. This is looking to be Black’s next directorial effort. I couldn’t be more thrilled with this news. I love Black’s work and I thought his ‘Iron Man 3‘ film was the best yet of the franchise as you can read HERE.

The Black Keys To Perform At The Grammys!

Hey rock and roll fans, Napkin Art here…

It’s that time of year again. The 55th Grammy Awards are happening on February 10, 2013, and the list of performers for the evening are starting to trickle in. You may have already seen the list of nominees, which is a slight improvement from past award ceremonies, but let’s hope this year’s performers won’t disappoint.

The only bands we give a damn about who are on the list of performers (so far) is The Black Keys and UK darlings, Mumford & Sons, who I’m sure, will be rocking the tunes they’ve been nominated for (The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” for ‘Record of the Year’, while the two face off for ‘Album of the Year’ nods, as well). Rihanna and Taylor Swift were also tapped to perform at the ceremony (yawn.) Hopefully, Jack White, who is also up for ‘Album of the Year’ nods for his best-selling debut LP, “Blunderbuss,” will also get tapped to perform. You know his performance alone will make The Grammys worth watching alone. Remember “Seven Nation Army” from the 46th Annual Grammy Awards?

What performers are you hoping to catch live at The Grammys this year?

The Emperor:
Everything that has transpired has done so according to my design. Your friends, up there on the sanctuary moon, are walking into a trap, as is your Rebel fleet. It was *I* who allowed the Alliance to know the location of the shield generator. It is quite safe from your pitiful little band. An entire legion of my best troops awaits them. Oh, I'm afraid the deflector shield will be quite operational when your friends arrive.
