Film Review: ‘The Judge’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 10th, 2014

Suzanne L., Here…

TheJudge

With a story that bounces among family drama, courtroom drama, and love story, The Judge takes on a lot with its all-star cast, but in spite of performances by Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr., the movie falls short. What was intended to come off as moving is more maudlin than impactful.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

One of the ticket packages includes a massage.

The festival has given us a complete lineup of films for their 2017 event and since I’m such a nice person it’s my job, I’m giving it to you.

‘Green Room’ Blu-ray Announced and Detailed!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

91LSukBM25L._SL1500_

Green Room‘ was my favorite film from 2015’s ‘Fantastic Fest‘. You don’t get much better than Patrick Stewart as a bad neo-nazi, trying to kill a punk rock band. Not only that, you have the ‘Blue Ruin‘ guys Jeremy Saulnier and Macon Blair on top of this film as well. It’s in theaters now, and I highly recommend you go and see it. Lionsgate has just announced the Blu-ray too, which will release on July 12th with some cool extras. Below is the information.

Bryan Reviews ‘War Horse’ Blu-Ray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….


In never got a round to catching Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ in the theatres.  I heard a lot of people enjoyed it, but it really wasn’t at the top of my list.  Overall. I enjoyed the film quite a bit.  It’s done very well on ever level, but that’s Spielberg.  I really expected a movie about horse, but it was more about the different characters the horse encounters during the war and how the horror of war-times effects each individual.  The audio and video on this bluray are top notch with a few good extras.  If you were a fan of the film, a Spielberg enthusiast, or a war movie buff, then this bluray is for you.

Hi Bryan Here….

Episode #14:  “Ourselves Alone”

Debut: SUNDAY, OCT. 2 (9:00-10:00 p.m. ET/PT)

Other HBO playdates: Oct. 2 (11:00 p.m.), 4 (11:30 p.m.), 5 (8:00 p.m.) and 8 (10:45 p.m.)

Concerned about losing his grip on Atlantic City, Nucky (Steve Buscemi) deliberates a countermove while trying to learn who in his inner circle betrayed him.  As agents scour the Treasurer’s office for incriminating evidence, Margaret (Kelly Macdonald) strikes a pose from the past to help Nucky avoid further trouble in the present.  In New York, Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg) puts Jimmy (Michael Pitt) on hold, but Meyer Lansky (Anatol Yusef) and Lucky Luciano (Vincent Piazza) loom as possible trading partners.  Chalky (Michael Kenneth Williams) is badgered in prison by Dunn Purnsley (Erik LaRay Harvey), a jailmate with an ax to grind; Owen Sleater (Ted Rooney), an advance man for Irish nationalist John McGarrigle (Ted Rooney), scouts the Thompson residence; the Commodore (Dabney Coleman) introduces Eli (Shea Whigham) to “the men who made this city.”

Written by Howard Korder; directed by David Petrarca.

Hi Bryan Here….

So it has been a few years since the J.J. Abrams directed Mission Impossible 3 film which was actually really good.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman did an amazing job in the film, and Tom Cruise was fun to watch.  This film looks to amp up everything from the 3rd film to the 11th degree, but is that a smart move?  Only time will tell.  I hope you enjoy the trailer.  I hated the pink/eminem song in it, but when they got that Mission Impossible theme in there, I admit, I got giddy.  The film opens in December of this year.

Hi Bryan Here….

WOW.  This was a mighty mighty fun blu-ray set to get through.  Took a while as there are hours and hours of extras and commentaries to listen and watch.  It was great watching all of these again.  Some greater than others.  I haven’t watched all of the Superman films since that tin DVD box set came out several years ago.  Oh man do these newly remastered blu-rays look fucking beautiful in HI-DEF.  So, this particular review will be set up by film.  I will go through all eight discs of the set and outline everything you would ever want to know about them.  From the movie itself to the extras and the audio and video quality.  This is one hell of a set and Warner Bros. and DC went above and beyond the call of making one AWESOME home video release in Superman.

Hi Bryan Here…

The biggest shopping day is upon us and the holiday shopping spree season has already begun.  I am kinda disappointed in this lack of releases this week.  I figured the studios would be pushing their biggest titles this week because it is the largest shopping weekend and weekend of the year.  But they just sort of half-assed it.  Maybe because of all the incredible sales on past releases that have started and will continue on through Monday.  Oh well.  As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.
