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.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 6th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Jackson is joining the cast of the remake of ‘Robocop’.  Remember, I’ve been talking about this remake for a while and last time I talked with Peter Weller (the original Robocop), he was not enthused about this remake.  THis might change his mind.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Great Gatsby’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 25th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Director Baz Luhrmann has created a grand opus filled with shiny costumes, modern music, magical camera tricks, and classic style of early Hollywood film-making to bring to life once again F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved and iconic novel ‘The Great Gatsby‘. The film is over-the-top, lavish, and a bit flawed. But that is how the title character is after all. The feel and tone of the film is entrancing, as the visuals take is to the early 20s in New York, where we become infatuated with Gatsby and his American dream.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Pumpkinhead’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

THE FILM

Would you say “Pumpkinhead‘ three times in the dark in front of a mirror? Of course you would, because you haven’t been a bad girl or boy, have you? I remember seeing ‘Pumpkinhead‘ on VHS back when it came out in the late 80s and fell in love with the horrifying creature known as Pumpkinhead, despite some of the movie’s flaws. Hell, I even owned several of they action figures and toys of Pumpkinhead over the years and every time I come across it in my house, I think, “I better be a good person or Pumkpkinhead will come after me.” Well at least that is what I thought when I was younger. But what most interested me, was the creature itself. And that’s where the late, great legend Stan Winston comes into play.

Film Review: ‘Robocop’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joel Kinnaman

Over the past year, I’ve been writing stories on the upcoming ‘Robocop‘ remake. As I found out more and more information about this reboot of the franchise, I was becoming less and less excited about it. It might of been the fact that it was getting a PG-13 rating, the change in the suit, or many of the other differences that were popping up from the original 1987 film that starred Peter Weller. Hell, even Weller himself said he was not looking forward to the remake and even compared his 1987 film to the likes of ‘Casablanca‘, which is hilarious.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Robocop_remake_fanposter

Here’s your first look at the remake of ‘Robocop‘ from director Jose Padilha. Joel Kinnaman, star of AMC’sThe Killing‘ will play Robocop. Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish and Jay Baruchel co-star. It’s gonna be difficult to fill Peter Weller’s shoes in this, as well as make a gritty enough film.

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.

Bryan Reviews ‘Warrior’ DVD!!! (A DVD Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Warrior’ was surprisingly a knock out with me.  I really enjoyed this film.  Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, and Nick Nolte were all killer in this film.  I was hoping Nolte would get an Oscar nod for his role in this.  And guess what?  He did.  ‘Warrior’ was a very inspiring film and sticks with you for a while.  I only wish this film has more push while it was in theaters.  This DVD was packed with extras.  Only wish I had received the bluray version of this.

Hi Bryan Here….

In more Disney and Pixar 3D news, all three ‘Toy Story’ films will be re-released in 3D Bluray.  I won’t be surprised to see in the coming weeks Disney and other film companies releasing their titles again in the 3D format.  As far as I can see now, the only difference between these 3D releases and the previous bluray versions is the actual 3D portion itself.  Read below all the specs and info.
