Bloodsport-e1374775984547

Kumite! Kumite! Kumite! I can’t believe it’s been 27 years since the iconic actor Jean Claude Van Damme kicked his way on screen in ‘Bloodsport‘, which was the story of Frank Dux when he entered a full contact underground fight competition. I remember watching this movie at age seven in my Tae Kwon Do class and just thinking this film was the coolest. Well as we all know, this film launched Van Damme to super stardom and went on to star in a ton of action films.

Season 2 of ‘Fargo‘ is gearing up to start filming soon for FX, and rest assured, I can’t wait. The first season, which was based on The Coen Bros. Oscar winning film in the 90s was excellent. The first season starred Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thorton, Colin Hanks, and Allison Tolman.

Hi Bryan Here….

It’s great to see JCVD’s return to the big screen with  what will hopefully be a brutal action film.  It has been too long.  Jean Claude returned to the screen a few years ago with his critically acclaimed part documentary part fiction film ‘JCVD’.  I couldn’t believe how amazing Van Damme was in this movie.  He absolutely deserved an acting award.  Now it seems with his upcoming film ‘Assassination Games’ which has already been picked up by Sony, Van Damme will head another production called ‘Six Bullets’.

Blu-ray Review: The Glass Castle!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE FILM


You probably have heard the name Jeannette Walls. She is a journalist that was known for her Gossip column for MSNBC, but she is now known world-wide for her amazing novel ‘The Glass Castle‘, which was a memoir about her life growing up with her dysfunctional family. Her novel stayed on the Best Seller list for 261 weeks. If you think about that’s about four years and yes, it’s that good. Of course, Hollywood made a movie about it, which was directed by the amazing Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and starred Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Nomads‘ was director John McTiernan’s freshman directorial effort. He would take what he learned from this film and employ it in a handful of films from the years surrounding the 1990’s that make up a few quintessential examples of film from that decade, not to mention one of the must-watch movies of the Christmas season. ‘Predator‘, ‘Die Hard‘, ‘The Hunt For Red October’, ‘Last Action Hero‘, ‘Die Hard With A Vengeance‘ and ‘The 13th Warrior‘ are among his noted resume. You caught the Christmas movie in there didn’t you? 1988’s ‘Die Hard‘ happily finds itself in the playlist on my home DVD player between ‘National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation‘ and ‘A Christmas Story‘.

Film Review: ‘Insurgent’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2015

Taylor E., Here…

640_insurgent_trailer_20141212

Insurgent, the sequel to the popular young adult trilogy-turned-film-series, takes place immediately following the events of Divergent. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), are on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), who is hunting the Divergents. This action/adventure/science fiction-thriller failed to perform, but was at least pretty to watch. Insurgent would be far more enjoyable if viewed on “mute”.

Hi, MDP Here…

Dean-Ambrose

On a night that was supposed to be all about WWE’s championships, and on a night where he wasn’t even scheduled to appear, the takeaway from Night of Champions is that Dean Ambrose is the coolest. Ambrose had been off for a month after Seth Rollins and Corporate Kane took him out on an episode of Monday Night Raw. Rollins was scheduled to face Roman Reigns on Sunday, but Reigns underwent emergency surgery over the weekend and will be out for several months. While Rollins was gloating in the ring after demanding that the ref declare him the winner via forfeit, Ambrose arrived (via taxi cab; what timing!) and attacked Rollins.

If two films weren’t enough, there will be a third movie to laugh at. That’s right, ‘The Expendables 3‘ has a release date of August 15, 2014, which Lionsgate is proud to get behind. And why shouldn’t they be proud, the first two made over $575 million worldwide, which is the biggest franchise for Millennium Films. This time around, Patrick Hughes will be in the director’s chair, which his only feature credit is for a movie called ‘Red Hill‘, so she has his work cut out for him.

How cool.  I one day I get to write about two of my favorite musicians.  Tom Waits and now Michael Jackson. I only wish they would have been able to collaborate on an album together.  It would have been epic.  We first found out about this 25th anniversary album a few weeks ago, but we didn’t know what all was included.  Today, the good folks at the MJ Estate and Epic/Legacy Records announced all the details for the upcoming 25th anniversary release of the famous ‘Bad’ album.  There are DVD’s and tons of new songs.  I can’t wait.

Bryan’s Review of HBO’s ‘Treme’ Season 2 Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

HBO’s second season of ‘Treme’ is just as good as the first season.  It’s a story of character, tragedy, music, and the spirit of New Orleans post Katrina.  HBO really knocked this release out of the park with the excellent extras and superb video and audio transfers.   If you are a fan of the above, you definitely need to pick this up.  This receives my highest recommendation.

Hi Bryan Here….

Luis Bunuel’s ‘Belle de Jour’ is a fantastic sensual odyssey that I enjoyed immensely.  Catherine Deneuve is just radiant and amazing in the lead role.  Criterion really rolled out the red carpet with this release.  The video and audio presentations are fantastic and the extras are very good.  If you are a fan of the beautiful Catherine Deneuve and or an intense tale of sexual fantasy and fetish, then this movie is for you.  I just love this movie and it will make a great addition to your criterion section.

Hi Bryan Here…..

I’m a huge sucker for HBO original programming.  HBO is pretty consistent in how amazing their original programming is.  With ‘How to Make it in America’, it just fell flat to me.  The show is okay to some degree.  I like the actors in the show especially Lake Bell.  She is going high places.  And Eddie Kaye Thomas (Finch) is pretty great too, but I just don’t really identify with any of the characters.  But I might be one of the odd men out on this one as I know tons of friends love the show.  But this release is packed with tons of extras and a pretty decent video/audio presentation.

Hi Bryan Here….

So we are talking about the film ‘Unknown’ here.  A film that stars Liam Neeson, January Jones, and Diane Kruger.  According to IMDB, ‘Unknown’ is about “A man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is.”  So there’s that.  Then there’s Boomstick’s newest contributor and writer….Shirtz.  Shirtz is the ambassador for the underground world of the occult and bizarre to our human society.  He has been everywhere and he has seen everything.  We are very happy to have him at Boomstick Comics from now on so give him a warm welcome, but be careful.  He bites.

Bluray/DVD Releases For the 2nd Week of October

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2010

A few good releases this week.  Some titles I have been waiting quite a while for to be released.  Any week is good when you get a Wes Anderson Criterion movie.  So, as usual, the picture links will whisk you away over to amazon, where you can learn more about each title, and purchase the movie for a great discount, which also donates a small percent to this column to keep this website going.  Here we go….

The Darjeeling Limited (Criterion Collection Bluray)

I love this Wes Anderson film.  A story about three brothers who are on an emotional and physical journey to come to terms with their lives, and their father’s death, and the disappearance of their mother.  The whole entire film pretty much takes place in India which is BEAUTIFUL.  The soundtrack is littered with Kinks songs which makes it a pleasure to listen to.  Since being a Criterion Collection release, it is packed with extras which include:

New high-definition digital transfer approved by director Wes Anderson

Anderson’s short film Hotel Chevalier (part one of The Darjeeling Limited)

Audio commentary featuring Anderson and cowriters

Behind-the-scenes documentary by Barry Braverman

The Magician (Criterion Collection Bluray)

Ingmar Bergman’s The Magician (Ansiktet) is an engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema’s premier illusionists. Max von Sydow stars as Dr. Vogler, a mid-nineteenth-century traveling mesmerist and peddler of potions whose magic is put to the test by a small town’s cruel, eminently rational minister of health, Dr. Vergerus. The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that’s both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.

Extras include:

Supplements

  • New visual essay by Bergman scholar Peter Cowie
  • Brief 1967 video interview with director Ingmar Bergman about the film
  • Rare English-language audio interview with Bergman, conducted by filmmakers Olivier Assayas and Stig Björkman

Leaves of Grass (Bluray)

I do not know much about this film, but I cannot believe this film did not get a major release.  It stars Edward Norton, Richard Dreyfuss, Tim Blake Nelson, Susan Sarandon, and Keri Russell.  An Ivy League professor is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a scheme to take down a local drug lord.  Sounds awesome.  I’ll be picking this up.

Well that’s it for this week.  Stay tuned for next week for new releases.

Top 133 Films of the Last Decade (#133 – #120)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2010

Earlier in the year, I made my list of favorite and best films to come out between the years 2000 and 2010.  A ten year span of great films.  Films that I completely forgot about.  Films you may have not even heard of.

So I came up with 133 films which was narrowed down from about 300 or more.  Below is the start of the list which has the film title, the date it was released, and my brief personal memory and review of the film.  Plus the link to purchase the movie for a cheap price.

It was a great time coming up with this list.  It was also fairly difficult once I got down to the last 20 or so because they are in fact in order from great to the absolute best of the year.

So over the next few days I will be posting more titles as we get to the #1 spot.

I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

133_ Wet Hot American Summer – July 27, 2001

How could this movie not be on a favorite list?  Especially a list of top films of a decade.  This film is balls out hilarious, but in that silly way.  It takes place in the 80’s at a summer camp on the last day of camp.  Directed by David Wain from Stella, Role Models, and The Ten, with an all-star comedic cast including Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, and Michael Ian Black, amongst others.  There are plenty of quotable lines and tons of gut-busting laughs.

132_ The Bridge – October 27, 2006

This is a very haunting documentary that I remember having many conversations

with people after viewings.  Two filmmakers set out to make a documentary film on the Golden Gate Bridge on its history and beauty.  As they were filming the bridge, the filmmakers noticed people committing suicide by jumping off the bridge quite often.  This documentary is about those suicides and interviews with  the vicitims families and friends.  You will actually see people talking on the phone – hang up – then jump to their death.  It is unforgettable.

131_ Bandits – October 12, 2001

I loved this film with Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thorton who stole the show.  These two characters are criminals in jail who break out of prison and go on a bank robbing spree.  It is very heart felt and load of hilarity.  Not any of it seems forced.  Actually, the two bank robbers are the good guys.  Great film that I feel that was missed by a lot of people.  Check it out.

130_ JCVD – June 4, 2008

JCVD as in Jean-Claude Van Damme.  This film is brilliant.  It is fiction mixed in with documentary.  Very strange but oh so good.  This is NO action flick.  AT ALL.  JCVD plays himself in real life.  He is coming to terms that he is just a B movie actor that fights.  His personal life is in shambles and he has no money and his wife is trying to get custody of his kid in the bitter divorce battle.  Add to that while he is getting a wire transfer of money in his home town at the post office, criminals hold everyone hostage and want money and tell the press and officers outside that JCVD is the culprit.  This film is very emotional and very well acted.  Yes.  Very well acted.  I really hope to see what this director does next.  Truly excellent film.

129_ Kung Fu Hustle – April 8, 2005

From the makes of Shaolin Soccer comes King Fu Hustle with Stephen Chow.  This movie is all sorts of fun.  A Kung Fu film that does not take itself seriously and packs high end special effects and lots of laughs.  Typical evil vs good film.  I love these types of films and will always hold a place in my heart for Stephen Chow.

128_ Death To Smoochy – March 29, 2002

I’m a sucker for dark comedies.  This is one of the best.  I great cast of Edward Norton and Robin Williams who play kid tv show personalities who are bitter rivals.  This shows what the seedy underbelly of kids shows are really about.  Such great black humor and very well directed by Danny Devito.  Loved it.

127_ Ginger Snaps – May 11, 2001

A kick ass different take on werewolf movies that involve high school sisters.  Extremely gory and violent with a dark wit that takes you on a great journey on what it is like to transform into a werewolf in high school.  Sexy Werewolves equal AWESOME!

126_ Remember the Titans – September 29, 2000

I remember seeing this film and becoming very emotional while watching it.  Based on a true story in the south about a black high school football coach overcoming racism in the 60’s as he leads his interracial football team to win the championship undefeated.  The soundtrack to this film is top notch and a great performance from Denzel Washington.  One great heart felt Disney Film.

125_ Team America: World Police – October 15, 2004

From the creators of South Park comes a Jerry Bruckhemier/Michael Bay marionette production of a group US citizens who fight the war on terror.  Very crude and lewd and hilarious.  Oh the sex scene is worth the price of admission alone.  America….Fuck Yeah!

124_ Knocked Up – June 1, 2007

The sophomore effort from Judd Apatow is a great film about a stoner schmuck who scores a one night stand with a hot tv personality who becomes pregnant.  Apatow mixes great feeling and emotion with tons of dick jokes.  A perfect combination that makes a successful story and film. The deleted scene with Jonah Hill and Katherine Hiegel discussing Brokeback Mountain is one of the greatest discussions EVER!

123_ The Simpsons Movie – July 27, 2007

Finally!  Fifteen years in the making.  This had everything that I wanted in a Simpsons movie.  Good morals, great story, and lots of laughs and inside jokes made this brilliant movie a masterpiece.  Matt Groening made America’s favorite family a joy to watch all these years and the movie was NOT  a let down.  Keep up the good work.

122_ Chocolate – February 6, 2008

An awesome Thai film about a girl with emotional problems to the ppoint where she is almost non-sociable with anyone.  She has a great fondness for Chocolate and once she sees some Thai Fightin on tv courtesy of Tony Jaa, she learns to fight by watching it and then goes after bad guys in the neighborhood.  A film that has no stunt wires or special effects, but stuntmen who take real hits and fall hard.  A real treat in filmmaking.

121_ School of Rock – October 3, 2003

A perfect combination of Jack Black being Jack Black while Jack Black teaches kids about music and playing rock music.  This movie could have failed in so many places, but I was surprised on every corner.  This film plays very well to all audiences.  If you love music and comedy than this is a film you have to see.  Very well done.

120_ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – November 16, 2001

The first film in the whole series created a whole new world to everyone and in filmmaking.  Great filmmaking and acting as well as speical effects made this children’s book come to life and was great for the whole family.
