Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The-Babadook-Poster

I had the distinct pleasure to talk with Australian Director, Jennifer Kent on her new amazing film ‘The Babadook‘, which is the scariest film since Stanley Kubrick’sThe Shining‘. I saw ‘The Babadook’ at Fantastic Fest 2014 in Austin, Texas, and needless to say, I had trouble sleeping in my hotel room that night. Jennifer was in Los Angeles, discussing some upcoming projects with big film studios and executives, and she took some time out of her busy day to chat with my about movies, life, and ‘The Babadook‘. Enjoy the audio interview below and go see ‘The Babadook‘. It’ll scare the shit out of you.

The ‘Twilight’ Saga Continues on Facebook?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 1st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

51q43VqS6UL

 

Facebook is reviving characters that have been dead a long time. Prepare yourselves for the global sound of Twihards the world over to squeal with delight. Facebook is getting into the film game with ‘Twilight‘ short films. You read that right. Stephenie Meyer wrote what has become the ‘Twilight Saga‘. Beginning in 2005, Meyer released the first novel in a series that would grip fans of all ages and create characters that would be immortalized in film. While some of us were letting our broomsticks cool down from a wild ride with a boy wizard, cold vampires and hot werewolves were heating up readers pages again. The saga ran the length of four novels and one short story as a spinoff.

‘Frozen’ Director Picks Next Project!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 7th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Chris-Buck-Jennifer-Lee-Golden-Globes-post

 

 

If you want to cherry pick your next project as a filmmaker, it helps to have an Oscar in your back pocket for the previous film. That’s what Jennifer Lee has to bargain with thanks to the unrivaled success of ‘Frozen‘. Lee  directed and co-wrote the animated flick that has dragged every child that’s ever seen it into its icy depths. There isn’t a parent around that hasn’t been tortured by their kids either falling in love with the movie, or non-stop singing of ‘Let It Go‘. It’s a great song, I love Idina Menzel’s voice, but there are only so many times you can hear it as dozens of parents have taken to YouTube to prove.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Wreck It Ralph’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

71ftUaLkCGL._AA1015_

Wreck-It Ralph‘ is one hell of a fun and entertaining movie. Not only will the little kids enjoy this, but adults will eat this up too.  Disney has done a a great job with their 3D animated comedy to start the holiday season.  The amazing voice cast, the video game references, the characters and storyline can all compete with the likes of any Pixar film.  Well, I guess you can get a phenomenal film when you have John Lasseter executive produce and Rich Moore direct.  Moore has directed tons of episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ and just about every episode of ‘Futurama’, so you know this will be a funny and intelligent film done right.

The ‘Powerman 5000’ Experience!

MNR1377

Good Day everybody, and so here begins my foray into writing for local music events.  I have been endeavoring to insert myself into the local music crowd in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for what feels like ages.  I’m not sure how it’s going, but it doesn’t really matter.  I have my own aspirations, but when I got to local music events it’s because I truly appreciate the music scene and those that are fighting every day to keep it alive… on the plus side… I get to see bands that I have just been dying to see for what also feels like a very long time.  This past Saturday, April 16 of the year 2016, I finally got to see Powerman 5000 and a few other local bands that are really kicking ass right now; but I’ll get to that in a minute.

Film Review: ‘The Bad Kids’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 28th, 2016

Beka P., Here…

MarcusPaigeHeader

In the vast and desolate Mojave Desert sits a high school. It’s not just any school, it’s the last stop for many troubled 11th and 12th graders. Triumphs are few and far between, graduations even more rare, but when there’s success it is ever so sweet. The Bad Kids, directed by Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe, follows three teens through their time at Black Rock High School, an alternative institution. The film focuses on Joey, whose turbulent home life leaves him struggling to cope with the normalcy of everyday life; Jennifer, whose lack of confidence stems from an emotionally abusive father; and Lee, a teen parent trying to raise a child with a classmate all the while fighting to compensate for his educational shortcomings.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

texas-frightmare-weekend

Texas Frightmare Weekend is billed as the Premier Southwest Horror Convention.  This year they celebrated their 10th anniversary and I was able to attend for the whole weekend for the first time.  Of course, I’ll be “penning” another article about the overall experience after I’m finished writing up everything else, but I must get this one out first.  The reason?   Because I LOVE movies.  A little known fact about the event is that they offer screening opportunities.  It is difficult to choose what to watch between the two rooms, but over the weekend I got to see enough to speculate on a few of them.  Oh, and there will be spoilers.

Hello ladies! Look at your man, now back to me – whoops, sorry about that. As you know, it’s Valentine’s Day once again. And as this overly-commercialized excuse for a holiday rears its ugly head, we take a reflective look back at our lives and at the choices we’ve made concerning our relationships. Some of you will realize that maybe the gap-toothed ex-con biker named “Bubba” might not have been the best choice for a mate (“but he’s a real sweetheart once you get to know him!”). Unfortunately, now you’re “in like Flynn” with his whole clique, and before you know it, you’re drinking homemade moonshine with the rest of his recently released buddies in the middle of backwoods nowhere (if you hear banjos – run). That isn’t to say that everyone makes bad decisions. Some women seem to have a gift for finding the right people to surround themselves with – or have a real knack for how to handle the bad apples that come along – and that can make all the difference between a smooth sailing adventure and a total train wreck experience.

The Marvel Experience Sets Up In Dallas!

Well, as a fangirl, I have a S.H.I.E.L.D. costume. Let’s not lie, I wore it all last year to conventions. I watch Agent Catrter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on a weekly basis. So, when I heard the Marvel Experience was coming to Dallas, my inner ten year old went nuts. I shouted out loud, “What, I must be a part of this. “

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

The brains behind ‘American Horror Story‘, ‘Nip/Tuck‘ and ‘Glee‘ has struck again! Fox is the host network for Ryan Murphy’s musical atrocity, ‘Glee‘, now that the Rachel Berry gag-fest has it’s series ending in sight, around May of 2015, the network is wanting to replace the high-school sing-along with more Murphy. Director/Producer/Writer/Creator Murphy can command just about anything he wants on the small screen. FX has already extended the life of their powerhouse supernatural thriller anthology ‘American Horror Story‘ as we reported here. In addition to the horror serial, FX has greenlighted a new collection from Murphy, ‘American Crime Story‘, read the details here .

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 10th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

DRAFT DAY

I have not been excited about a Kevin Costner movie since before I had my first kiss, which was Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And that came out in 1991 when I was 11, and let’s face it, I was going to see Christian Slater.  It was the last Costner movie that I saw in theaters, though I have sat through or fallen asleep during his other films like Waterworld and The Postman.  So when I was asked to go see Draft Day, a movie I knew absolutely nothing about going into the theater except that it was about either the NFL or NBA  (Do other sports have draft days?), I took my husband along for moral support/sports clarification just in case. This movie had all the makings of a perfect storm of being truly awful and I had a depraved eagerness to write this review in order to drop the hate bomb on Costner. But man, was I wrong. This movie was good. Really good.
