Hi everyone, Bryan here….

We have a very fun 53rd episode of our fun podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘Media-Ocrity‘, where the show is just – okay. Here on the show, we focus strictly on horror/sci-fi, comic books, and video games – basically all the fun stuff that tickles your fancy. In our 53rd episode, titled ‘Jabba rides an Ice Dragon‘, we talk about the new Netflix film, Death Note, the Game of Thrones finale, and give our thoughts on what a Jabba the Hutt and Obi Wan Kenobi film should look like.. It was so much fun. This episode is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. I am joined pop-culture wizard Jonathan Atterbury and comic book artist Jeremy Megert.

Hey guys, Jana here,

We are closing in on Texas Frightmare Weekend for 2017 with just a little under two weeks to go. May 5 will be upon us before we know it and all the glorious events will be open and ready for us, the avid fan, rabid amateur filmmaker, the nuclear family. Whatever form you’re in, you’re going to enjoy the Southwest’s premier horror convention and film festival. If you’ve got an interest in genre film, you’re not going to want to be anywhere else but the Hyatt Regency DFW Airport May 5-7, 2017, for the 12th annual event.

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.

I am SO excited about this event. It has been two years since I was first able to visit Texas Frightmare Weekend. My first visit included meeting and shaking hands with notable people like Veronica Cartwright, Bill Moseley, Sean Patrick Flanery, Bernie Wrightson, Lyle Blackburn, Tom Savini, Tom Skerritt, Teen Wolf’s Dad and I got to see Danny Trejo and Gary Busey and ET’s Mom, and Grizzly Adam’s, and SO many others.

I’ve circled the dates on every calendar in the house, checked the lineup for new additions every day (sometimes 2-3 x a day), and have considered costuming options. The event in question is the Tulsa leg of the WizardWorld Comic Con taking place this Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 7-9.

Hi, Jana here,

 

celeb-sibling---John-Belushi

 

Normally when I hear John Belushi’s name, I smile as I remember Jake Blues from ‘The Blues Brothers‘ ordering four fried chickens with a Coke, or his turn as John Blutarsky in ‘Animal House‘ as he incites a food fight. One thing I didn’t expect to hear in association with his name is that he is the subject of an upcoming biopic.

Hi, Bryan Here….

So, before Tim Burton was all Tim Burton and loved scissors and crooked trees, he made a short film called ‘Frankenweenie’.  Now he is remaking his first film.  I have a love/hate relationship with Tim Burton, but I am curious to see this.  Very few directors go back to the original 1st movies and remake them.  But now the film has a poster and it looks eerily familiar.

Weekend Events in the Metroplex Take 2

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2010

At the Inwood theatre in Dallas this weekend, the midnight showing will be “Xanadu”.  The showing will be Friday and Saturday night at midnight.  Maybe you can sing a long with the movie.  Inwood theatre is on Lovers Ln. and Inwood Rd. in Dallas.

One of the better bands of this decade will be opening up for Dave Matthews Band on September 11 at Coca Cola Starplex or now known as Super Pages.com Center.  (Fuck I hate that name.)  If you have not heard Black Joe Lewis, head HERE and listen and get their album.  See them if you get a chance.

This Friday and Sunday at the Ballpark in Arlington, The Texas Rangers will be playing the New York Yankees.  Friday’s game starts at 6:05pm and Sunday’s game starts at 1:05pm.  Hot Dogs, Beer, Rangers, and the Yankees seems like an excellent time.

This barbecue competition and street festival debuts in Oak Cliff on Sunday the 12th with a nod to famous people who had ties to the Cliff, including bluesmen T-Bone Walker and Stevie Ray Vaughan and outlaws Bonnie and Clyde. The event will include live music and an art show.  One of my good friends Kevin Johns will be competing in the BBQ chicken tournament. Vote for HIM!  Click HERE for more info.

Beginning Sunday, September 12, Central 214 at the Hotel Palomar of 75 and Mockingbird will feature a different Will Ferrell movie each week. Seated on one of the chic outdoor couches in the courtyard with crab stuffed mushroom and your favorite cocktail in hand, you can do nothing but leave lighthearted to prepare for your busy week ahead.

The flicks begin at dusk (After 8 p.m.) each Sunday.  This Sunday will be Old  School.

JOKER – 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2020

THE FILM


Todd Phillips is several oceans removed from his usual comedy escapades (The Hangover trilogy) with his brutally dark, yet brilliant film ‘Joker‘. Those of you who are not particularly fond of the comic book genre these days will still find something amazing in this DC universe that takes place in the 1980s. Joaquin Phoenix gives an unparalleled performance as the titular psychopath with a smile like you’ve never seen him before in pages or on-screen. It’s really something to behold, but then again, Phoenix is always magnificent. The real star of the film is director Todd Phillips himself, who for the first time showed that he can hang with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and Francis Ford Coppola, delivering a picture-perfect account on Joker.

TERMINATOR: DARK FATE – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2019

Terminator: Dark Fate picks up 2 decades after the events of T2: Judgment Day and proceeds as though the multiple sequels never occurred. I also like to pretend none of the sequels ever happened so this was a low bar for entry into this movie. The opening credits recap what was supposed to happen in 1997 using clips from T2 which was a very efficient way to get everyone in the audience on the same page. It reinforces the starting point of this movie, in T2 Sarah Connor won and the apocalypse caused by SkyNet never happened. Of course, humans are way too stupid in this World and the Terminator World… so despite SkyNet never existing in this timeline, something called Legion was created which is just an updated SkyNet and humans are still hunted by machines in the future. Luckily we shook off that 1997 technology and the machines have some really unique nanotechnology abilities this time around!

ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2019

In the world of unnecessary sequels run amok, Zombieland: Double Tap proves that sometimes sequels are absolutely worth the wait. Set 10 years after the original movie, Zombieland: Double Tap quickly picks up where we left off with this makeshift family as they work together to survive a zombie apocalypse. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) & Wichita (Emma Stone) all reprise their roles from the 2009 original with the same enthusiasm as they had the first time around. When the first movie came out most of the stars were not well known but after 10 years they’ve gone on to star in Oscar-nominated movies and even win Oscars themselves. Those 10 years in real life and in the Zombieland universe was the perfect amount of time for the writers and director to put together a sequel worthy of the original and maybe even superior to it in some way. This is easily one of the best comedies of 2019.

What do you get when the co-writer and director of ‘Mac and Me‘ have access to an animatronic Tyrannosaurus Rex for two weeks? Something that looks a lot like ‘Robocop‘, but with high school students played by Denise Richards, Paul Walker, and a T-Rex. Of course, I’m talking about the infamous film ‘Tammy and the T-Rex‘.
