Taylor Reviews ‘Hope Springs’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2012

Taylor Here…

Marriage takes work.  Jobs, kids, houses, and ESPN have a way of creeping into happy relationships, replacing excitement and fun with crippling boredom.  People get in ruts, they stop paying attention to their partners’ needs, and their foundation begins to crack.  We’ve been told this story many times before, and while no new ground is broken, Hope Springs is a cute movie to which almost everyone in the audience can relate.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. Films announced include titles in the Galas and Special Presentations programmes. The announced films include 17 Galas and 45 Special Presentations, including 38 world premieres.

Buffalo Springfield to Tour in 2011?

by NapkinArt on Feb 17th, 2011

Back in October 2010, Buffalo Springfield bandmates Neil Young, Stephen Stills (The Talent) and Richie Furay got together onstage for the first time in over 40 years during Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert. As most folks probably figured this was a one trick pony, the rumor mills have been running overtime the last couple of months whether or not the influential 1960s rock band would reunite for future gigs.

In November, Furay’s manager, David Spero, confirmed with Rolling Stone that the remaining members have been talking about the possibility of doing some tour dates. Days after the Bridge School gig, Furay said “We just picked up where we left off many, many years ago. It almost felt like going back in time.” Read the rest of this entry »

‘Every Which Way But Loose’ Headed To Reboot!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

In the grand tradition of Hollywood running out of original material, I present to you the next title up for bastardization…err remake – ‘Every Which Way But Loose‘. It’s not even that it’s only classics or pivotal movies that are getting remade, they’re going after the guilty pleasures, late night cable offerings that played for months at a time and we watched 7 or 20 times during the summer.

Echo in the Canyon – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2019

 

“Echo in the Canyon is a true music buff’s utopia.”

If you’re a music buff, this new documentary called Echo in the Canyon is a must-see. Music industry maestro Andrew Slater and musician Jakob Dylan (Bob’s son and member of the Wallflowers) have given us the gift of rock n’ roll on film that focuses specifically on the mid-1960’s music revolution that catapulted acts life The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas, Buffalo Springfield, and later years of The Beatles and The Beach Boys to success and fame.

Film Review: ‘[KIN]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 28th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Crash. Pew Pew. Woosh. Boom. Maneuvering through the ruins of an abandoned building, KIN opens with the coolest sound mixing that I have heard and literally felt in a long time. Eli Solinski (Myles Truitt) searches for scrap metal to sell, but finds a weapon endowed with great power and a secret that will alter his life. An outsider, Eli has few friends and lost his mother at a young age. It is no wonder why he is so reserved in his demeanor. At least until you mess with his family. Hal Solinski (Dennis Quaid), Eli’s father, comes home to find Eli suspended for fighting and his elder son, Jimmy Solinski (Jack Reynor) released from prison. Can his day get better?

HBO orders 10th season of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

It was several years between season 9 and season 9 of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘, which the 9th season just ended on HBO to rave reviews and huge laughs. It was one of my favorite seasons for sure where Larry David had a Fatwa placed on him. The President of HBO programming Casey Bloys announced today that a 10th season will be happening and production will start next spring. Yes, that means we will have to wait a year at the most for a new season and not several years like in the past.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

Good news, everyone. The entire ANTI- catalog of Tom Waits albums will be re-mastered and re-issued on vinyl, which will include a new remixed version of Real Gone. All of this will be available before the holiday season, which will make excellent gifts and stocking stuffers. Tom Waits is one of the coolest people on planet Earth and has released videos, songs, and movies that always evoke emotions, laughs, and fun. I just hope he’s working on a new album and will once again tour, because if you’ve never seen Tom Waits live in concert, you really haven’t lived yet. It looks like all releases will come with 2 LPs that are 180g each along with a digital download card as well, which is just amazing.

A Retrospective Look Back at the year 2007 in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2017

Written by: Dan Moran

It has been a decade since we have had an overwhelmingly great year of movies. There have been some ‘great movies’ for sure, that have been released since 2007, but a collective year of dominance like 2007 hasn’t been experienced in 10 years. We have to start with the films that people still talk about today from 2007. No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, & Zodiac. I mean what a Top 3 for one calendar year!  The closest we got to this was in 2015 when the Top 3 was, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Fury Road, & Mad Max: Fury Road.

It will be the year 2018 in a couple short months, which bring in the New Year with tons of optimism, new slates, blossoming relationships, low-carb diets, and tons of new, exciting movies. Speaking of movies, Criterion has unveiled the first films they will release for 2018, starting in January, which looks like it’s gonna be BADASS! I mean, are we really getting ‘The Breakfast Club’ on Criterion? YES, yes we are. Does that mean we will get more John Hughes’ films in the future? Let’s hope so. Below you can read about each release.
