Disney announced today that they have cast Laura Dern and Benicio Del Toro in ‘Star Wars: Episode VIII‘. Kelly Marie Tran has also been cast in the film, however their roles are not known at the time, nor do I think we will find out anytime soon. Production starts today at Pinewood Studios in London and the film will debut December 15th, 2017, meaning we have a couple of years.

Film Review: ‘The Founder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Beka P., here….

the-founder-movie-2016-trailer-michael-keaton

As a lawyer, one of the first things they teach you is to always put things in writing. As a criminal lawyer, one of the first things I tell people is never put things in writing. ‘The Founder‘ is a lesson in contracts and how as Roy Kroc says, “Contracts are like hearts, they were made to be broken.” This film explores the story of how McDonalds became more than just a local burger joint- exploding onto the map as a nationwide franchise. Quite honestly, it was darker than I expected, and cast a bit of a cloud on the French fried potato goodness that is Micky D’s, but I suppose that when you pull back the curtain and expose the inner workings of any organization, you are bound to find a few skeletons in the closet.

Woody Harrelson is ‘Wilson’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 3.18.19 PM

Woody Harrelson is having a few big years and for good reason. The guy is just genuinely likable and a badass. His next big film is called ‘Wilson‘ and will premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. ‘Wilson‘ is directed by Craig Johnson (‘Skeleton Twins‘), written by Daniel Clowes (‘Art School Confidential‘, ‘Ghost World‘), and produced by Alexander Payne (‘Election‘, ‘Sideways‘, ‘About Schmidt‘, ‘The Descendants‘, ‘Nebraska‘). Need I say, “HOLY SHIT”, what a cast and crew already. If that weren’t enough, you can add Laura Dern, Judy Greer, and Cheryl Hines to the cast as well. Fox Searchlight now has a trailer and new poster for the film, which looks excellent.

Film Review: ‘Certain Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2016

Violet O, here…

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-5-40-54-pm

Certain Women‘ opened on a very long, mostly silent, incredibly slow scene of a train traveling the countryside. Unfortunately, this proved to be the pace of action and level of excitement throughout the entire 107min film. This movie attempts to tell three completely unrelated stories of three different women (Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Lily Gladstone) living in rural Montana. The only commonality that I could find between these stories is their lack of direction and level of awkwardness.

Hey guys, Jana here,

jurassic-world-movie-trailer-previews

It was no surprise that off the back of the success of ‘Jurassic World‘, that a sequel would be an automatic given. Now that sequel has a director signed on for his chance to bring a little pre-historic terror to the world. J.A. Bayona (‘The Impossible‘) has had his name mentioned more than a few times since he bowed out of the running for ‘World War Z 2′ last year, but it’s now finalized.

Film Review: ‘Bravetown’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 8th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

bf425bc70d2f7185a39713d7ce7f92ff6c7cff3e

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: a troubled, angsty teen gets in trouble and is sent off to live with their dad in middle-of-nowhere, USA. Once there, the teen develops an independent identity, meets a sparkly vampire, and Indian werewolf…ok, that last part might be inaccurate, but you get the idea. Bravetown doesn’t provide anything you haven’t seen in dozens of other movies, what sets it apart, however, is that it manages to rip off its predecessors in the most bland way possible.

oscarsnominationsheader

We are only a few days away from the 87th annual Oscar ceremony, which airs live this Sunday. Again, we will be delivering a live commentary full of jokes, trivia, facts, winners, losers, and giving away free gifts throughout the night. So please, keep it right here during the Oscars and use the hashtag #boomstickcomics when posting to social media. But, let’s talk about predictions for a minute. I’m sure some of you have put some money down on Oscar pools at works or with your friends to see who comes out the winner this year. There were some excellent movies this year along with some amazing performances, so needless to say, this year will be extremely difficult to predict.

Film Review: ‘Wild’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

reese-withersonpoon-first-image-look-pic-Cheryl-wild-movie-adaptation2

Director Jean-Marc Vallee is becoming one of the finer filmmakers of this modern age. Even though his resume is a short one, each one of his films has been fantastic. Vallee is one of those directors who does not stick to one particular genre, but rather goes after different stories in different time periods and genres. And while he might not be as drastic as Stanley Kubrick in this fashion, the comparison is still there.

I’ve never hid from you the girl-love I have deep inside me when it comes to beautiful faces, gorgeous bodies or even just their boobs. One person that comes to mind that holds all those qualities, plus makes me wish I were her, is Reese Witherspoon. She’s southern charm in motion. You just know she’s got to make killer sweet tea, right?

Film Review: ‘Are You Here’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2014

Janet W., Here…

areyouhere-zachgalifianakis-owenwilson-amypoehler

Are You Here is the question that should have been asked of the filmmakers.  Normally, I would start with an overview of the film, but let’s get right to the critique.  The plot was unclear and disjointed along with the dialogue. The lack of linear flow in the telling of this story of friendship and family and how they can be interwoven is to blame.  Have you ever loved a friend so much that they were like family?  Were you able to distinguish between helping them and enabling them?  It appears that this may have been the goal the screenwriters were aiming to showcase.  However, random sequences like Dallas’ seemingly endless sexcapdes, Baker’s fast-framed stoner frenzy, and a constant array of buck-naked women that the viewers have to see from head to toe distracts from the narrative.  Sex still sells, I guess.  The film ends in such an abrupt way that the audience is left thinking, “Why have I just sat through all this?”  On top of it all, the film is way too long (8 minutes shy of 2 hours), but really didn’t get anywhere.

Hello Jana here,

downton-abbey-logo

Downton Abbey‘ has taken the TV series platform that Americans are familiar with, turned it on its ear, polished it to a British-shine and showed us what a witty, elegant and proper thing it could be. Unless you’ve been living in a cave, you know the premise. And  if you’ve been living in a cave, I’ll give you a rundown so you’re caught up. Lord Crawley sees his family heritage, especially the grand country home Downton Abbey, as his mission in life. The death of his heir aboard the Titanic means distant cousin Matthew Crawley, a Manchester lawyer, suddenly is next in line and accepts moving onto the vast estate with his even more modernist, socially engaged mother, who clashes with his lordship’s domineering, conservative mother, the dowager. Marrying off the daughters is another concern. Meanwhile, the butler presides over a staff which serves the family, but also lead most of their entire lives in the servants’ quarters, intriguing amongst themselves.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Moonrise Kingdom’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

universal-studios-home-entertainment-moonrise-kingdom

Wes Anderson is back to the live action format with his new quirky coming of age film, Moonrise Kingdom.  I can always tell a Wes Anderson film from any other films.  The camera angles, the oddball characters, the musical cues with the slow-motion action, and how every character puts their emotions on the frontline makes up the guts and glory of a Wes Anderson film.  Some people might find all this obnoxious, but Moonrise Kingdom, with its two tween stars, everything seems to work flawlessly.

BRIDGE – Chapter Twenty

by Justin Cline on May 9th, 2012

CHAPTER TWENTY

The tinny song was repeating by the time Bridge determined its tune was emanating from him.  After that, the process whereby he retrieved the phone from his coat pocket was lengthy and arduous.  He was in need of fingers, which forced him to swap his lighter from his left hand to the right, balancing it in the center of the wide, flat stone.  Only then could he pull out Rook’s cell and identify the caller.

CHAPTER FIVE

 

The assassin showed no signs of stopping.  The way he barreled down the sidewalk—his pistol making him a path—, one would think he knew something of Bridge’s reputation.  If so, he had to be aware that even though the man had taken a bullet, Bridge could only be slowed down for so long.  Once he recovered, he’d be mad as all hell.

BRIDGE – CHAPTER FOUR

CHAPTER FOUR

 

Bridge was faced with a decision, a choice between two evils, neither of which was in his favor.  Should he stretch his light out to reveal what had become of his would-be client or draw the candle closer to inspect the ruins of his own gut?  In the end, the woman won out if only because he was still in a state of shock, and he knew he needed to take advantage of that fact before it wore off and the pain of what had happened to him set in.
