Hey guys, Jana here,

1401x788-DF-11957_11901_r

The new red band trailer for Seth Rogen’s new film ‘The Night Before‘ is fantastic. Rogen stars with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie who have been childhood friends. They annually re-convene every Christmas eve for a night of debauchery and decadence, however, since they are older now, this might be the last time they get to party, so they’re going to make this one count.

Hey guys, Jana here,

It was just a matter of time before the beloved Jim Henson show got the live-action adaptation and it appears it’s time. I’m so excited Joseph Gordon-Levitt is going to produce and star in this movie for New Regency, The Henson Co. and Lisa Henson.

Jana B. here,

To Reach The Clouds

Director Robert Zemeckis has a slew of successful movies to his name. Hits like the ‘Back To The Future‘ trilogy, ‘Forrest Gump‘, ‘Cast Away‘, ‘The Polar Express‘ and 2012’s ‘Flight‘. It stands to reason that whatever project he decides to work on will turn out prosperous. Looks like Zemeckis has selected his next project, the story of Philippe Petit, the French high wire artist and “the artistic crime of the century”.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller have hired Joseph Gordon-Levitt for their sequel film ‘Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For‘, which just happens to be my favorite story out of the ‘Sin City‘ series.  Gordon-Levitt will take on the role of Johnny, which is pretty much the lead character that overlaps a few of the stories that will be featured in the film.

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Joseph Gordon-Levitt (Inception) is almost positive to join the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s new spaghetti Western Django Unchained. He’ll have to work out some scheduling issues, but the man seems pretty determined. If he manages it, he’ll be back alongside Leonardio DiCaprio (as before, I do not need to tell you what else he’s in), Jamie Foxx (Ray), Samuel L. Jackson (oh, please), Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds), Don Johnson (Machete), and Kurt Russell (Escape from New York, back in the day).

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘. Each film will come with HDR as well, meaning a richer and deeper looking image for each movie. Each film will feature extras, the standard Blu-ray Disc, and Digital Copies of each movie. The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Halloween has passed, Thanksgiving is yet to be, which means it’s time for Christmas to vomit on everything in creation, to that end, I give you the red-band trailer for ‘The Night Before’. If you can’t wait to see Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie make this Christmas Eve as fucked up as ‘The Hangover‘, we’ve got another little taste of the mayhem they will create!

Film Review: ‘The Walk’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 30th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

the-walk-joseph-gordon-levitt

Fade to white and what appears to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt with blue eyes?  You guessed it that cute little boy from 3rd Rock from the Sun and 10 Things I Hate About You.  Recall in 10 Things I Hate About You when Gordon-Levitt’s character, Cameron, was pretending to teach French to his lady love, Bianca.  I guess Joe moved past that mumbling mess he tried to pass off as French.  Blue eyes are not the only addition, the French accent is thick and very Maurice Chevalier.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the French language and accent.  I admit though that the appearance of Joe with these cosmetic changes at first was a little jarring.  Obviously, he is no longer the little boy I used to watch.  He slipped into the guise of Philippe Petit seemingly effortless to bring us The Walk

Ten Great Lesser-Known Films Starring Big Name Actors!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

Green_street_hooligans

You might find yourself reading the following list, thinking “Hey! I’ve seen all these movies! How dare you claim them to be ‘lesser-known’!” My response to you, should you say such a thing, is “congratulations.” You see, just because you are a film nut like me, doesn’t mean that the rest of the populace is. The following is a list of ten good films with big-named actors that somehow slipped under the general radar. I’m not saying they are completely unknown, but based upon ticket sales, it certainly seems like they slipped the notice of the general public. These are all solid films that, should you enjoy these actors, you definitely want to check them out (the films, not the actors – although to each their own, I guess).

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage12

Two great family film companies, Walden Media and Jim Henson Productions, are joining forces to produce, and develop an original story about a rather nasty subject, a pagan demon who punishes wicked children at Christmas. Did I mention he has horns and looks fifty shades of creepy? They’ve gone with the title ‘Happy Krampus!‘ so they’re going to make it a family-friendly project with a live-action production.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

sin-city-2-a-dame-to-kill-for-eva-green-ava-lord

Second verse, same as the first. It’s been almost ten years since Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller brought us the noir-soaked graphic novels known to comic book fans around the world as ‘Sin City‘, which was created by Miller himself. This seedy, ultra violent, and nasty underworld, where crime is rampant and the bad guys end up on top of this booze drenched and drug induced city is the backdrop for some of the most entertaining characters in ever to come out of a graphic novel.

It’s been a long time in the making, but we finally have Robert Rodriguez’s first trailer to the sequel of ‘Sin City‘. ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For‘ was my favorite story out of Frank Miller’sSin City‘ story arc, and it looks like almost everyone is back in the sequel along with a few newcomers including Josh Brolin, Eva Green, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. They join Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, and Powers Boothe. The film opens August 22nd.

Hello, Jana here,

Meryl-Streep

There are a few names in Hollywood that can cherry-pick working conditions. Meryl Streep is among the very top of that list. Beginning her career in 1975 with a total of 74 projects in her resume, she has played every kind of character you can imagine. Her performances are moving, funny, realistic or greatly fantastical. No matter what film she’s in, she’s the top of my list of favorite actresses. I’m in high anticipation of what will surely be, another excellent musical performance in the film version of ‘Into The Woods‘.

We have confirmation that Warner Bros. is prepping a Batman and Superman film, a Flash film, and a Justice League film. The Warner Bros. panel is currently in session right now at San Diego Comic Con, which we will have updates on that very soon. What we do know is that all of these films have release dates.

Christopher Nolan’s reimagining of the Batman franchise beginning with 2005’s Batman Begins enjoyed phenomenal critical and box-office success. Now on September 24, Nolan’s three Batman films Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises – will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The six-disc set will feature all three films with their existing extra content, two new featurettes and exclusive new collectible memorabilia. This must-own collection for fans of DC Comics’ Caped Crusader is available in premium packaging and will sell for around $100.00. I’m willing to bet it’s cheaper than that though at certain retail stores. ***ARTWORK IS NOT FINAL***

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

91t42AGU92L._AA1500_

Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman franchise ranks as the best film in the series.  That’s difficult for me to say, as the first two films were so amazing.  Even with Heath Ledger’s iconic and eternal role as the Joker in the previous film, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ far surpasses anything my imagination could have hoped for in film.  Movies do not get better than ’The Dark Knight Rises’.

Film Review: ‘Lincoln’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2012

FedMex Here….

Steven Spielberg is one of the most respected directors of our time. Naturally, when it was announced that he would be directing a biographical film of Abraham Lincoln, we were all pretty excited. This excitement was further elevated when we discovered that Daniel Day-Lewis would be cast as Lincoln himself.  To add to all those big names, throw in “you really like me” Sally Field, notoriously cranky Tommy Lee Jones (as Thaddeus  Stevens), and super talented dreamboat Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and I mean, how could this possibly go wrong?

Hi, Bryan Here…..

Science Fiction is back in a big way.  With the recent ‘Prometheus’ film, ‘John Carter’, ‘MIB3’, and ‘The Hunger Games’, audiences are proving they are ready for a huge sci-fi kick in theaters.  Rian Johnson’s ‘Looper’ is one of the better sci-fi films to come out this year, if not the best so far.  ‘Looper’ is a highly entertaining thrill ride that combines time travel, telekinesis, and realistic future world.  I was very happy to see that Johnson got the sci-fi genre right, and it left me wanting more.

Check Out The Trailer for Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

So we just finished the little Q&A with Steven Spielberg and Joseph Gordon-Levitt through Google+ where they answered people’s questions about the upcoming film.  And they also debuted the full trailer for the film, which looks AMAZING.  It will win Oscars.  The trailer is below and comes out November 9th, which is my birthday. Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Premium Rush’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

David Koepp’s ‘Premium Rush’ was a fun ride through New York with enough adrenaline to keep the sub par plot moving along.  What makes this film enjoyable is Joseph Gordon-Levitt and its ultra fast pace, as it has a timed clock (think ’24’) graphic that pops up on screen throughout.  Other than those two elements, ‘Premium Rush’ lacks the push to cross the finish line.

OK, so none of us had any high hopes for this film, and I’m surprised that I was still disappointed.  The entire film is not a failure, but it is a wasted opportunity for what could have been either a fantastic popcorn flick or a bona fide cult classic.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has proved once again why he is one of the best actors in the business today.  This film, ‘The Lookout’ has an all-star amazing cast, a great plot and character development, and flows nicely.  With a cast of Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeff Daniels, Isla Fisher, and Matthew Goode , you can only expect the best.  And all of them brought their A game to this “missed by most” gem of a film.  I highly recommend getting this movie and would be great in any movie collection.
