Film Review: ‘Kevin Hart What Now?’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

8P05_D002_00556 In Universal Pictures’ Kevin Hart: What Now?, comedic rockstar KEVIN HART follows up his 20 13 hit standup concert movie Let Me Explain, which grossed $32 million domestically and became the thirdhighest live standup comedy movie of all time. Hart takes center stage in this groundbreaking, recordsetting, soldout performance of “What Now?”—filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an atcapacity football stadium. Credit: Frank Masi

 

An extended opening title sequence takes you through, Kevin Hart, a wannabe James Bond, literally a direct rip of various Bond films. The graphics were pretty cool. Enter the dramatic casino satire, an over-the-top, talking over others’ lines testament to the lunacy of Kevin Hart, Agent 0054. Next comes the stand-up concert that is the meat of Kevin Hart What Now? Hart shoots out of the stage in Trinity (yes, Matrix rip) style and the show begins.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

The Weinstein Company is working up a remake of ‘The Intouchables‘ based on 2011’s original that starred François Cluzet and Omar Sy. TWC has tapped Neil Burger (‘The Illusionist‘, ‘Divergent‘) to direct the project which will star Kevin Hart (‘Ride Along‘) and Bryan Cranston (‘Breaking Bad‘). The pair have not worked together before and this will be a memorable project for the dynamic actors.

Hey guys, Jana here,

In what comes across as a particular ‘New Guy‘-ish theme is ‘Get Hard‘, the newest comedic offering from Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart. The two are absolute anarchy on a screen alone, so together they will bring the house down, the big house that is. We’ve gotten our hands on the extremely RED BAND trailer of the new pic and I laughed part of my considerable ass off, I wish it REALLY worked that way, right?!

Hello Jana here,

Kevin Hart

I think Kevin Hart is trying to break a record for being involved in the most flicks going at one time. With 10 projects , at the moment, in various stages of completion, he is adding one more to the pile of future projects. He has signed on to star in ‘Ride Along 2‘ after the success of the original when it was released in January of this year. Hart and his ‘Ride Along‘ director, Tim Story (‘Barbershop‘), have been approached to work together on another film, ‘Black Phantom‘.

If they make a Rambo movie in the jungle and Sylvester Stallone isn’t in it, did it really happen? This might be the question on some minds as we learned ‘Rambo: New Blood‘ is the title of brand new reboot of the property that will NOT include Sly. At this point in his career he needs it all: new blood, hair, hips whatever, but I digress.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Central Intelligence’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

What would a Summer-Movie-Season be without Kevin Hart and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson? This summer, the two team up in an action-comedy called ‘Central Intelligence‘, directed by Rawson Marshall Thurber (‘Dodgeball‘ and ‘We’re The Millers‘) and co-written by actor/writer Ike Barinholtz(‘Neighbors‘). With so many buddy-cop action comedies out there, it’s sometimes difficult to tell one of them from another. Sure, there are the greats like ‘Lethal Weapon‘, ‘Turner and Hooch‘, and ‘Tango and Cash‘, but what does modern day buddy-cop action comedies hold that the past films don’t? When relating this to ‘Central Intelligence‘, it seems like the filmmakers thought it would be a lot of fun to put these two personalities together and basically let them riff off each other for a couple of hours. Throw in a some guns and a half baked plot about world security and terror, along with a message about being bullied, and you have yourself ‘Central Intelligence‘.

Film Review: ‘The Secret Life of Pets’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The-Secret-Life-of-Pets-3

It seems like there are a wealth of animated talking animal movies these days. With Pixar, Disney, and DreamWorks releasing ‘Zootopia‘, ‘The Good Dinosaur‘, ‘Finding Dory‘ and ‘Kung Fu Panda 3‘ recently, it only seems fair that Universal dipped their hands into the sub-genre as well with ‘The Secret Life of Pets‘. Universal’s animation studio Illumination Entertainment brought us ‘Despicable Me‘ and those darn ‘Minions‘ to the big screen, which has made the entertainment business billions of dollars. It seems logical for the studio to cash in on the talking animal genre now, since everyone else is doing it, however with an already over-crowded market for these films, ‘The Secret Life of Pets‘ may fall short of beating out ‘Zootopia‘ and ‘Finding Dory‘ in both the financial and critical realms. I’m not saying that ‘The Secret Life of Pets‘ is a bad movie or anything. In fact there are some great moments that are funny and charming, but it loses itself in the second half of the film when it becomes an action-caper movie that becomes over-the-top and even drags in its short run time of less than 90 minutes.

Film Review: ‘Ride Along 2’!!

by Janet White on Jan 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Ride Along 2 - Bros

 

Following on the tails of the Ride Along, Ride Along 2 comes rollin’ in.  Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) is finally a cop, straight out of the academy, and still seeking James Payton’s (Ice Cube) respect.  Especially, since Ben is about to marry James’ sister, Angela.  The buddy comedy continues, but lacks luster.  Kevin Hart has his usual diarrhea mouth, but in this film, someone added 20 lbs. of ex-lax to his condition.  Normally 8 out of 10 times, this endless train of ramblings can make your side split.  However, in Ride Along 2 his batting average drops.

Film Review: ‘Get Hard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

get-hard-hart-ferrell-2

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have teamed up together for their latest comedy project called ‘Get Hard‘ with enough double entendres for two movies. There are a couple of similarities from ‘Trading Places‘ and ‘Nothing To Lose‘ here in ‘Get Hard‘, but nothing really seems genuine or charming enough to remember this film much beyond two minutes after viewing it. Etan Cohen (not to be confused of the Coen Bros.) steps into the director’s seat for the first time, but has written screenplays such as ‘Men In Black III‘, ‘Tropic Thunder‘, and ‘Idiocracy‘. Clearly, he has some writing talent, but with ‘Get Hard‘, it seems like he just let Ferrell and Hart do their own thing, which can be outrageously funny at times, but can also run off on long tangents, which often happens with this movie.

You’re getting married.  This should be the happiest event of your life, right?  Well, what if you have no friends?  What if the people you barely know won’t be there for your special day?  Meet Doug Harris (Josh Gad).  Harris called any person that was in his vicinity as he grew up.  He’s nerdy and chubby and doesn’t have a friend in the world.  For Harris, meeting the woman of your dreams, Gretchen Palmer (Kaley Cuoco-SweetingBig Bang Theory), and having her say yes to marriage is more than a score, it’s a miracle to him.  She’s blonde, she’s beautiful, and she has seven bridesmaids.  So, how does a perceived loser matchup with that?  Where is Harris going to get seven groomsmen when he cannot even find a best man?  Enter, Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart) a slick talking idea man that can make anyone look good…he is The Wedding Ringer.

1200290 - THINK LIKE A MAN TOO

It’s been two years since we last saw the characters of ‘Think Like A Man‘, which was based off of Steve Harvey’s book ‘Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man‘. The first film followed a group of guys and girls falling in love with one another with all of the ups and downs of a relationship. It was funny, charming, and worth the time. Director Tim Story is back in the director’s chair again for this second outing. Statistically and historically, if a film on a modest budget does well, more than likely there will be a sequel.

Film Review: ‘Ride Along’!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

20131107_ridealong_placeholder

Once or twice a year, we the people receive yet another installment in the form of a buddy cop film franchise where two unlikely people are paired up to take out the world’s most dastardly criminals. Very few of these movies are worthy of your time, while most of them are forgettable almost instantly. With Tim Story’s PG-13 ‘Ride Along‘, the latter is unfortunately the ultimate result here. It makes sense that Story directed this as he made ‘Barbershop‘ and the recent ‘Think Like A Man‘ film, which both ‘Ride Along‘ stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube starred in. I can see this movie doing well at the box office this weekend, but I expect negative reviews across the board.

I never thought I’d write this sentence, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently in talks to star in the reboot of Troma’sToxic Avenger’ film. This project will be introduced to potential buys at Cannes this year of all places. I didn’t think Cannes would take any Troma film. But it looks like this re-imaging of ‘Toxic Avenger‘ will be a big budget project. Steve Pink is taking the reins of the film. Pink directed ‘Hot Tub Time Machine‘ and will direct the sequel. This is odd, but amazing news.

Bryan’s ‘Think Like A Man’ Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Tim Story’s ‘Think Like A Man’ is comedy gold.  I completely underestimated this film, expecting stupid sex jokes, flat character development, and ridiculous male posturing. But by the end of the film, my cheeks were sore from laughing, and I discovered that romantic ensemble comedies are still in business. ‘Think Like A Man’ is a hilarious film that will keep you smiling for days to come.

Film Reviw: ‘Bleed For This’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 18th, 2016

Beka P., here…

maxresdefault

People were literally on the edges of their seats watching the story of Vinny Pazienza unfold in Bleed for This. I have never experienced an audience as collectively involved or as vocal as the one watching this film. The audience gasped, threw their hands over their mouths and their eyes, winced in pain and breathed sighs of reliefs almost in sync with one another. Just recently I told someone how it always helps to have a winning sports team (I’m looking at you Dak Prescott) because it brings people together; the same holds true for a good movie. This film has both- it’s a feel good film about sports. What more can you ask for? Oh, action, suspense, laughs and love you say? It’s got those, too.

We’ve got the first wave of programming that will be highlighting the event. You want horror, mystery, fart-tracking sprites and an 18 inch penis that looks like a dead chicken? It’s all here. We will bring you the second wave as soon as it becomes available.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Summer time means a million things to different people, but some things we can all agree on. Cook outs, swimming, catching lightning bugs, camping and baseball. It’s just as pure as mom’s apple pie and the star spangled banner and every spring, a new season swings into action and a new hope is born for your team to be a contender and play through October. The national past time has been the basis for a lot of movies and I’m making some sense of them all with my Top 10 favorite baseball movies.

Top 10 Summer Camps From Film I Want To Attend!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on May 25th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

School’s out, the days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and it’s about the time of year for parents to begin shipping their kids off to various summer camps. Some focus on fun, some are faith-based, others make the focal point anything from acting to sports, I even think there’s a chess camp. Talk about some trouble-makers! Woo-hoo and shit.  No matter where your interests lie, there’s a camp for that. Some of the greatest camps I’ve wanted to attend are all fictional and brought to us by both big and small screens. I’m going to give you a run down of what I think the top 10 summer camps from films are, then you can argue with me if you have better suggestions.

WWE Payback 2016: What to Expect!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

payback-2016-poster-2

It’s that time of year again for the PPV after Wrestlemania, which is known as Payback. Normally, this is a rather lackluster PPV when compared to the rest of the WWE events throughout the year, and this particular one seems no different, despite a couple of matches. I do expect some good moments, but I don’t expect a ton of titles to change hands here, if any really. Not only that, but we still have a ton of WWE Superstars out, including John Cena, Seth Rollins, Neville, and Randy Orton. You can add to that list Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Triple H not showing up, as well as The New Day not having a match either, however the latter will most likely do some promos. In other words, this just doesn’t seem like an exciting PPV at the moment. I hope I’m wrong. Maybe, just maybe Shinsuke Nakamura will show up and wrestle for two hours. Then again, maybe they’ll bring back ‘Firefly‘. Side note: why is Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family on the poster for Payback, but they don’t have a match?

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.

There is a dark cloud of reality hanging over this Sunday’s Hell in a Cell

It started moving in last month, when Sting faced Seth Rollins in the main event at Night of Champions. 

The story was that the Vigilante Sting, WCW’s greatest icon and the last soldier of the Monday Night War, magically appeared to challenge Rollins for the WWE Championship. Admittedly, he had already magically appeared once only to lose to Triple H, so there was slightly less magic than advertised. but Sting seemed to be enjoying himself and Rollins sold the idea of Sting being threatening well enough to make their match-up compelling.

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,

american-sniper-6

 

In the world of film, there are specific genres that stand out for me and one of those is war movies. I love different titles for a variety of reasons, the story, or even an actor, in this category there is one primary theme that ties each film together – heroes. Their outstanding courage is what gives us that lump in our throats and a swell of patriotic pride that causes us to lift these characters, real or imagined, to elevated heights. It takes a special kind of person to be a hero, I know I couldn’t do it, but I am eternally grateful for the men and women that take up that mantle and defend the lives and freedoms I hold so dearly.

The move to Wednesday was seamless as the NXT Superstars once again delivered on the promised action. Each match kept the NXT Universe on the edge of its seat as we were treated to technical gems, highly anticipated all out brawls, and a rematch for the NXT Championship. This week’s installment of WWE‘s developmental brand was exactly what the doctor ordered for those of us trying to make it past Hump Day!

Film Review: ‘Sabotage’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

 Arnold Schwarzenegger has been on quite a role since his political career in California. He has come back in full force to the movie world and has given us three films, including this one, with five more projects on the way. Needless to say, he has been busy. The first two films, since his time in the Governor’s chair in California were ‘The Last Stand‘ and ‘Escape Plan‘, both of which were PG-13 action vehicles for Schwarzenegger that had a silly and highly entertaining premise, even though the plots of both films were ridiculous. But in both of those movies, we received Arnold’s famous one-liners and his angry glare as he looks down upon his enemies with a giant machine gun in his hand, ever so ready to add to his impressive body count.

Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to Wilson, the just-released biography of the 28th president by A. Scott Berg for Leonardo DiCaprio to produce and star. DiCaprio will produce the adaptation with Appian Way’s Jennifer Davisson Killoran and DiCaprio is of course attached to star as Woodrow Wilson. The book, which hit shelves last week, has received generally positive reviews for its intimate portrait of Wilson, who was elected president in 1912, guided the nation through World War I and suffered a stroke in office while stumping across America for the peace treaty and the League of Nations.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Trouble With The Curve’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Trouble With The Curve’ is one of the cheesiest films I have seen in recent memory.  If this film were a burger, it would be a triple cheese burger with a side of cheese fries. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have moments of good.  It does, but ‘Trouble With The Curve’ tries to force feed you what you should be feeling and thinking at every moment.  Even with its amazing cast and baseball trivia, ‘Trouble With The Curve’ never slid into home plate to win the game.  Yes, I know that was cheesy, but then, that’s how I felt watching ‘Trouble With The Curve’.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.
