Sylvester Stallone had a run at playing the title role in 1995 and Urban has given us his own rendition of the character in this film.

Film Review: ‘Pete’s Dragon’ (2016)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Petes-Dragon-Movie-Disney-2016

Disney is knocking out some remakes to their beloved classics as of recently and it seems that they are enlisting the help of some great indie filmmakers to take the reigns of their future tentpole films and revamps. The latest being the remake of ‘Pete’s Dragon‘, which originally came out in 1977 and mixed live action with animation. It was a big hit for the studio and became universally loves by children of the 70s and 80s. Cut to present day, and we have Disney making a decent size budget live-action remake of the film with state-of-the-art visual effects and A-List talent behind the film. Not to mention a great indie filmmaker from the DFW area named David Lowery (Ain’t Them Body Saints), to co-write and direct this remake.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…..

This live-action remake of ‘Pete’s Dragon‘ looks fantastic in all the right ways. It’s like Spielberg was a part of it. Dallas native David Lowery is in the director’s chair and looks like he has himself a masterpiece in the making here. I can’t wait to see this. Below is the official synopsis. Enjoy the trailer.

So here’s the new trailer for ‘Star Trek Beyond‘ from director Justin Lin. Trekkies appear to have mixed thoughts on the new trailer. For one thing, you can tell it’s directed by someone new because there is a definite ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘/’Fast and the Furious‘ feel to it and absolutely ZERO lens flares!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Matt Damon’s return to the Jason Bourne franchise was an iffy issue if Paul Greengrass wasn’t returning to direct, as well. Luckily, both announced their return last year and the cast has been filling in steadily, since then. Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander are  slated for the flick and new waves are being made today as one of the villains was announced.

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).

The Top 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

085 - Evil Ed

I love making lists. Grocery lists. Bucket lists. Holiday lists. Favorite movie lists. Favorite VAMPIRE movie lists. I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? This is MY list of the top 20 Vampire movies ever made. Why did I point out that it was MY list? Easy. So you read this knowing it wasn’t an Academy vote that got a movie on this list. No one paid me to promote their movie. However, I’m NOT against this, just to be clear. Why spend time putting movies in a list? Maybe it satisfies some Freudian lack of paternal affection I suffered as a child. But the real answer is, “Why wouldn’t I make a list as awesome as this?”

After the critical and financial success of J.J. Abrams first installment of the Star Trek reboot, we have been caught in a cycle of anticipation and apprehension leading up to Star Trek Into Darkness. Could Abrams possibly pull off a movie as fantastic or would we be left thinking he was spent after the first? Would he continue to remain true to the geekfest of science talk that places Trek above Wars? Would we get tired of the lens flares? Yes, Yes, and no.

Film Review: ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

star_trek_into_darkness-HD

I must admit that when I walked into the the crowded theater yesterday to watch J.J. Abrams’ second journey into the Star Trek universe, I was a bit apprehensive and weary on how good it could be. Reason being, that there were no press screenings before the film was released. On the contrary, the actual press screening was one hour later than the regular screening for anyone to attend who bought tickets. Usually studios do this, because they know they have a terrible film on their hands and do not want negative reviews about their movie until the film is out. I thought of two reasons why Abrams woud do this. Either he really did have a crappy film on his hands or in true Abrams fashion, he kept tons of secrets and reveals throughout the picture wanted to keep all a secret until it was released.

Hi, Bryan Here…

As you have known for the past few years, there has been a Judge Dredd film in the works.  Only over the past several months have things really taken shape.  Karl Urban will play Dredd and supposedly is fully committed to the character and is loving every minute of it.  Let it also be known that this Judge Dredd film is going to be a hardcore ‘R’ film and is written by Alex Garland.  Garland wrote a little film you might like called ’28 Days Later’.
