Dan Moran’s ‘Ready Player One’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 29th, 2018

Ready Player One” or “I, Spy: The Movie” is a delivery vehicle for people who need validation through nostalgia. The problem is that despite how hard it tries to milk enjoyment out of its constant nods to pop culture, it fails to say anything that’s worth remembering.

by Janet White on Jan 13th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Clouds part to reveal beautiful waterfalls and Uncle Patrizio and Aunt Lucy having a meal aloft on a rope bridge.  A cry is hear below and an adorable little cub is struggling to stay afloat.  The birth of Paddington’s family.  Fast forward to present day.  Life is grand; Paddington has it all.

Frank Zappa fans have something to look forward to on the big screen and home video. There is a new feature length documentary called ‘Summer 82 – When Zappa Came to Sicily‘ that will be released and screened in theaters. Frank Zappa was one of the coolest people on the planet and one of the best musicians in the history of music. His only Grammy award was for his classical album, but if you know anything about Zappa, he wasn’t much known for classical music. The documentary will feature some never-before-seen concert and backstage footage, along with interviews with the band, family members, concert goers, and more. I can’t wait to see this.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

Blu-ray Review: The Lion King Signature Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

I remember when this came out in the cinema.  I was totally and utterly infatuated with this film.  I loved everything about ‘The Lion King’. I loved the characters, the animation, the music, and the story.  It was unbelievable when I first saw it at the age of 13.  Now I am almost 36, and the film still makes me feel like I did when I first saw it.  I am still completely in awe of ‘The Lion King’. Six years after the big Diamond Edition of the Blu-ray, which included 3D, we now have the Signature Collection of the film, which has some new bonus features, along with some older ones. The audio and video presentations seem to be the same transfers.

A Little Evil is coming to Netflix!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Netflix is releasing a new film called Little Evil from writer/director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) that is a comedy-horror about a loving family of three. Well, maybe not loving, but more like the actual Antichrist. This looks like a lot of fun and has quite a good cast. If this is anything like Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, then we are in for an entertaining ride for sure. Enjoy the trailer below. Also, I must point out how eerily similar the boy in the poster above looks like a cross between Angus Young from AC/DC and Damien from The Omen. I can’t wait.

Goodbye Christopher Robin has a Trailer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 4th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Looks like Fox Searchlight made a Winnie the Pooh movie without Winnie the Pooh. Instead, they Star Wars prequel-ed it and are bringing us a film called Goodbye Christopher Robin, which nobody wants to see. The film stars Domhall Gleeson, Margot Robbie, and Kelly McDonald that all takes place before Winnie the Pooh was even a thing. In fact, it’s about creating the honey-loving bear and his friends, along with some boring family love and drama. At least there looks to be some Nam-style war flashbacks. Honestly, I might just take a nap and you all can fill me in on this.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Poltergeist III’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

91do0Gkj2GL._SL1500_

THE FILM

The original ‘Poltergeist‘ film was a perfect mix of horror and comedy. It had the minds of Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind it and went on to financial and critical success. Of course, they made sequels to make more money, but we’ve often seen that more times than not, these sequels don’t embody the spirit of the original and can come off quite bad. The original film spawned two sequels and a TV Series along with the recent horrible remake. ‘Poltergeist II‘ had its share of great moments, due to the amazing visual effects work and the whole family coming back to reprise their roles, but that’s not the case with ‘Poltergeist III‘, which is no doubt, the worst film in the franchise.

Getting Deep with ‘Gods of Egypt’!!

gods-of-egypt-1

Firstly, this is my first real blog post; inspired by the fact that I finally got to view Gods of Egypt.  This was, like many Egyptian Mythology based movies were, a movie that I was looking forward to finally viewing.  I’m uncertain as to why I decided this was the topic I wanted to delve back into writing for, but here it is.  I feel two ways about it.  I’m going to express initially that I enjoyed it from an objective standpoint, it was fun and colorful and full of some interesting effect that got them right as often as they got them wrong… Giant Heads… #BobbleGods.  Now I’m going to express my displeasure, as anyone who has a passing interest in actual mythology realizes, it’s terrible.  The story is anyway, but the plotline is okay… and personally, I feel the message was all wrong about the afterworld.

Film Review: ‘Office Christmas Party’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 9th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

L-R: Kate McKinnon as Mary Winetoss, Jason Bateman as Josh Parker, T.J. Miller as Clay Vanstone, Olivia Munn as Tracey Hughes in OFFICE CHRISTMAS PARTY by Paramount Pictures, DreamWorks Pictures, and Reliance Entertainment

We’ve all been to Christmas Parties at the office before, and this time of year, when it’s Christmas, we get a plethora of holiday themed films. Well, the end of 2016 gives us ‘Office Christmas Party‘, the vulgar rated R Christmas movie that centers around a giant office Christmas party that’s made by the filmmaking duo of Will Speck and Josh Gordon (‘Blades of Glory‘). Does this offer any insight or something new to the comedy Christmas genre? No, not at all. That being said, this is a highly entertaining and hilarious film that I can see myself watching every year around the holidays. With the all-star cast, good soundtrack, funny dialogue, and an office party that we would all want to attend – ‘Office Christmas Party‘ is a success.

WWE: TLC 2016 in Dallas!

205_tlc_12042016ej_4165-7db86e24eda82a9d788ce93bac3a469e-1200x675

WWE has just finished its 8th TLC pay-per-view right here in Dallas, TX. No, TLC does not mean Tender Loving Care or even the R&B group from the 90s. It stands for Tables-Ladders-Chairs and is considered the “hardcore” PPV of the year for WWE. This was a Smackdown Live brand PPV event where every championship title was on the line. Between chair matches, ladder matches, table matches, and an all-encompassing TLC match to end the night, it’s no doubt that each and every superstar will be sore for next few days after all of their bodies were flung into these steel and wooden pieces of furniture. The event took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX to a big crowd, however it was far from a sell-out. That didn’t stop the crowd from cheering and booing their favorite superstars at all, even though it wasn’t as crazy a crowd as ‘Wrestlemania 32‘.

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.

THE FILM

Another Pixar sequel is here, and this time it takes place under water with ‘Finding Dory‘, the sequel to the 2003 hit ‘Finding Nemo‘. Wow, has it really been thirteen years since Pixar made $940 million off that cute orange fish? Well, Pixar is in the sequel making business these days, and with ‘Finding Dory‘, they seem to have made an enjoyable and entertaining sequel that has some funny moments, but misses the mark on the heart and soul of the first film – not to mention the lack of creative story telling devices that the first movie had throughout. I’m sure this sequel will make a huge splash with all audiences, but the kids are more likely to eat this up than the adults.

Film Review: ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

It’s Halloween season and the big horror movie studio Blumhouse has released another film in their canon franchise with their famous business plan. That movie is ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil‘, which is a prequel to ‘Ouija‘ from 2014. I know. I get suspicious too when a studio wants to start telling prequel stories to the masses. Most of the time, they don’t work, but Blumhouse and filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Oculus) really raised the bar with this prequel that is terrifying, fun, and connects the original film nicely, despite some silly problems here and there.

THE FILM

Back in 1988, an excellent creative team consisting of director Tom Holland, writer Don Mancini, producer David Kirschner, and visual effects wizard Kevin Yagher got together and made ‘Child’s Play‘ and psychological thriller turned horror film about a serial killer’s soul that is transferred into a kid’s toy doll and wreaks havoc on this family in Chicago. Nobody knew at the time, but this small little film would be an instant cult classic with rave reviews from audiences and critics alike for years to come. Not only that, but this film hatched numerous sequels and created one of the most famous horror icons in pop culture – Chucky.

MANHATTAN NIGHT BD OCARD 3D

Based on Colin Harrison’s acclaimed novel ‘Manhattan Nocturne‘ (a New York Times Notable Book of the Year), ‘Manhattan Night‘ tells the story of Porter Wren (Adrien Brody), a New York City tabloid writer with an appetite for scandal. On the beat he sells murder, tragedy and anything that passes for the truth. At home he is a model family man, devoted to his loving wife (Jennifer Beals). But when a seductive stranger (Yvonne Strahovski) asks him to dig into the unsolved murder of her filmmaker husband Simon (Campbell Scott), he can’t resist. In this modern version of a classic film noir, we follow Porter as he is drawn into a very nasty case of sexual obsession and blackmail – one that threatens his job, his marriage, and his life.

Miracles from Heaven opens in a beautiful richly colored forest and Christie Beam defining a miracle, an occurrence that “cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws.” Cut to a nice size farm and the interior of a rolling tire as a little girl is giggling and could there be a sweeter beginning. The Beam family has three girls: Abigail (Brighton Sharbino), Annabelle (Kylie Rogers), and Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) and two loving parents Christy (Jennifer Garner) and Kevin (Martin Henderson). Tragedy mysteriously strikes the middle child and thus begins the trial of this family’s strength, love, and faith.  Read the rest of this entry »

wwe-tlc

TLC. Tender, loving, Care. That’s not the case when we’re talking about WWE by any stretch of the means. TLC in the WWE universe means Tables, ladders, chairs, all of which are used to take down each other in the ring. Some of the most memorable matches in WWE history have been TLC matches with WWE superstars sacrificing life and limb, falling 50 feet in the air into the hard concrete or a folding table, only to be hit by a steel chair or a steel ladder. TLC matches basically mean that there are no rules. All is “legal”, even the kitchen sink, title belt, and even a trombone in some cases.

It’s been 35 years since we last saw Charlie Brown and his friends grace screens with a new film, but in this era of reboots and bringing vintage and retro projects back to the limelight, 20th Century Fox has brought back the Peanuts in a big way. How big? A $100 million dollar CGI ‘Peanuts Movie‘, that’s how big. With director Steve Martino (‘Ice Age‘) and Charles Schulz’s kids Craig and Bryan Schulz writing and producing the film, this new look at ‘The Peanuts Movie‘ is quite satisfying for kids and adults alike.

It is easy to take a film or genre that has met with success and copy the ever-loving crap out of it. In fact, Hollywood has been doing just that for years. You can’t tell me that you haven’t noticed the barrage of sequels, reboots, and remakes that have saturated the market over the last several decades! It’s much more difficult (also costly) to create something brand new and refreshing. The Vatican Tapes is another in a long line of exorcism films hoping to cash in on the success of The Exorcist and the like.

I’m a huge fan of Pixar and their animated films. They have changed the way films are made, and each movie since ‘Toy Story 1‘ in 1995 has been a success both critically and financially, making Pixar one of the biggest movie studios ever. Hell, all of the Pixar films combined have made over $9 billion (with a “B”) at the box office. That’s not to mention home video or merchandising sales. Since ‘Toy Story III‘ in 2010, there has only been three Pixar movies, all of which have been less favorited to Pixar’s previous films including ‘Wall-E‘, ‘Up‘, and the third ‘Toy Story‘ movie.

Meryl Streep is the most amazing actress. Ever. I know that’s a bold statement, I’ll try to earn some goodwill by noting that Audrey Hepburn is my pick for second best. I’ve never hidden the fact that Streep gives me major lady-wood and I’d buy a ticket to watch her read the phone book. One of my favorite flicks to watch her shine in is ‘Mama Mia‘. I have a major weak spot for musicals and the golden-haired goddess singing and dancing was a natural favorite, so, of course, I have been incredibly excited for ‘Ricki and the Flash‘ since I heard it was announced.

Film Review: ‘The Wolfpack’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

holding-wolfpack-sundance-film-festival

I wasn’t quite sure of what to expect from ‘The Wolfpack‘. I went in only know a thing or two about this documentary, but what I got was so much more. Some of us turn to reading as a form of escapism and happiness where others might turn to religion, or nature. For me, it was always music and movies. After a hard day of work or school, I knew I could always come home and listen to a good record or watch a film and be totally content. It’s almost like being at home whenever I watch a movie or listen to music, no matter where I am.

Film Review: ‘The Longest Ride’!

Janet W., Here…

home-page-feature-image-front-main-stage-2

Real love is seldom portrayed in film.  Two people meet, they fall in love and would do anything for each other.  Love is not flowers day in and day out.  Love is as much about sacrifice as it is about fulfillment.  Love worth having must be earned, pursued, and above all respected.  Not since The Fault in Our Stars had I witnessed such a true example of love.  Not without flaw, but the closest of late, is The Longest Ride.  This film does “real love” justice.

‘Gremlins’ Will Undergo A Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 9th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

Gizmo

Up next for the remake film treatment is one of my childhood favorites, ‘Gremlins‘. I grew up loving Gremlins, they start out absolutely adorable, but just like any horror movie from the 80’s there’s a strict set of rules you have to follow to survive. Instead of not having sex, you can’t get the precious Mogwai wet or you will likely die. In a horror movie you don’t split away from your group, but in ‘Gremlins‘ you can’t feed them after midnight, or you will likely die. I wonder if there’s a parallel universe and movies are the Mogwai, if you get them wet, they replicate a bad copy of the original, I’d say that’s the cause for the remake-hell we are living through.

WWE‘s developmental brand, NXT (available on the WWE Network for $9.99 a month) took to the road this week as the show blew through Columbus, OH!

We all know the story of Cinderella.  A kind and sweet young woman loses her parents and is stuck with a horrid stepmother and two selfish personified stepsisters.  They make her a slave in her own home.  The beauty of the fairy tale was that despite her circumstance Cinderella remained her wonderful self and blessed with her dream in the loving arms of the prince.  Amidst this story is the magical presence of loveable mice and Cinderella’s fairy godmother.

Film Review: ‘Run All Night’!

Janet W., Here…

Run All Night Movie (2)

Darkness gives way to a misty lake.  From above we close in on an injured man sprawled out on the ground.  Jimmy is floating in and out of consciousness…a voiceover speaks on what goes through the mind of the near dead and suddenly he hears a gunshot, a curious opening and introduction of Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson).  Jimmy is a former mob hit man that has become an island to himself through his long history of foul play.  Estranged from Jimmy is his only child, Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman).  Mike is a husband, father, and big brother/boxing coach, respectable personas that Jimmy forsook long ago.  Finding himself caught in the web of a murderous cokehead, Danny Maguire (Boyd Holbrook), and his mob boss father, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Mike turns to the last person he ever wanted to rely on, Jimmy.  Run All Night takes the viewer on a crossing of evading death and the bonding of two hearts.

The road to Wrestlemania never looked so bleak as it does now for all those loyal members of the WWE Universe that have proudly Bought In. Pittsburgh, PA was the scene of one of the most brutal unjustified beatings I have witnessed. RAW came to us live from the Steel City and was filled with its typical hard hitting action and more Intercontinental Championship shenanigans, but it was all darkened by the actions of one man, Randy Orton.

Angelic Heel returning once more…

 

WWE‘s flagship program came to us from Newark, NJ and delivered an exciting evening filled with the hard hitting action we come to expect from RAW. The big question of the night was, would Jon Stewart of the Daily Show accept Mr. Money in the Bank, Seth Rollins, challenge and show up? The WWE Universe got the answer and so much more as challenges were made, former champions were put in their place and supermen flew. What happened as we continue on the road to the Grandest Stage of Them All? Find Out now!!

We continued on the road home to Fastlane as WWE’s RAW hit us hard from Orlando, FL!

Film Review: ‘Annie’!!

Beka P., Here…

Celebrity Sightings In New York City - December 2, 2013

Annie’s adage is, “you’re never fully dressed without a smile,” and you’re sure to be doing just that from beginning to end of this remake. As a child, I about wore out my VHS of the 1982 version, so you can imagine how skeptical I was going into this reboot. Like most of you old school Annie fans, I went in with a, “this better be good or else” attitude. It’s a good thing director Will Gluck’s version blew me out of the water, because I’m not really sure who I would have submitted my complaints to.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

I loved, loved, loved ‘Divergent‘, so I’ve been excited for the sequel. For Beatrice Prior, she stopped fearing that she’s divergent and has fully embraced it. Sometimes those differences take a toll on a person in an emotional sense, especially when we see the effects our own decisions bring about. Tris is battling those inner demons while fighting against a system that continues to try and tear her society apart.

When it was announced that Guillermo del Toro was producing a 3D animated children’s movie about Día de los Muertos, it was easy to assume that The Book of Life would turn the festival of the dead into something creepy or macabre along the lines of Nightmare Before Christmas. Surprisingly and delightfully, del Toro and director Jorge R. Gutierrez created a funny and touching movie that gives the holiday the kind of celebration it deserves.

Anyone remember a little movie that came out in 1990 with John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck as hopeful, adoptive parents to the child from hell? ‘Problem Child‘ was the movie that was for sure going to scare any teenager even thinking of pre-marital sex, stop dead in their tracks, repent and go to church for the rest of their lives. Obviously it didn’t exactly work that way. That wasn’t even any of the filmmakers goal when they made the flick, I just threw that in, basically, because I can.

‘Aquaman’ Film Gains Two New Writers!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 13th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Aquaman17_(1996)

 

Recently Announced ‘Aquaman‘ movie gains two separate scripts.  Will Beall (‘Gangster Squad‘) and Kurt Johnstad (‘300: Rise of an Empire‘) have signed on two pen completely individual scripts. This is a truly ingenious way to achieve the same ends – Having a successful film.

With the lack of popularity for Aquaman among comic book nerds who can find reasons to love the most ridiculous of characters, making a film on the superhero would seem like an uphill battle the second the idea came to them. So how do you make an absolutely awesome film on Aquaman, the butt of the joke for even the most ardent of comic book afficionados? You realize that the first attempt is not going to live up to the dream, immediately. How do you move forward once you know that? You take the development process and dual track everything. The thought process being that if the two writers work on scripts on their own, the studio can then take the best points from each film and put them together in one super-film.

Michel Gondry has always been a bit of a mixed bag. For every Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, there are seemingly two The Green Hornets. It’s enough to make one mourn the demise of the ever-prevalent music videos that first brought him to prominence. So what can you expect from his latest venture, Mood Indigo?

Hillary T., Here….

Million Dollar Arm Film

This was another film I was unsure about. Of course I adore Jon Hamm, and his work on Mad Men is beyond incredible. And Lake Bell is a definite keeper after seeing her film “In A World” and her recurring role on ‘Children’s Hospital. But this movie could have been a hit or miss for me. Disney has made a great family movie with ‘Million Dollar Arm‘ that I wasn’t expecting to get sucked into and obviously invested in. You can tell it was passionately and lovingly made and disney quite possibly has a home-run on their hands.

Hello, Jana here,

Meryl-Streep

There are a few names in Hollywood that can cherry-pick working conditions. Meryl Streep is among the very top of that list. Beginning her career in 1975 with a total of 74 projects in her resume, she has played every kind of character you can imagine. Her performances are moving, funny, realistic or greatly fantastical. No matter what film she’s in, she’s the top of my list of favorite actresses. I’m in high anticipation of what will surely be, another excellent musical performance in the film version of ‘Into The Woods‘.

Some animated films stay with you, like Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Lion King, How to Train Your Dragon, and Shrek. There are some that you really enjoy and recommend to friends, for example The Lego Movie, Despicable Me, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Iron Giant. And then, there are those that you see that you think will only be good for people with kids because they have catchy songs and flashy colors, but not much else. Enter Rio 2, which falls solidly into this category.

american-hustle

I think i just got played.  David O’ Russell was shooting for his hat trick with ‘American Hustle’.  In 2010, we got “The Fighter,” an amazingly emotional story about loss and addiction.  2012 brought us “Silver Linings Playbook,” an incredibly off beat comedy littered with lovable yet slightly bizarre characters and a different take on a familiar plot.  Both of these films were highly praised and proved that Russell is one of today’s more impressive directors.

Quite literally, a Disney movie about the making of a Disney movie.  One would think this would be little more than ego stroking ego, but actually, “Saving Mr. Banks” is a sweet film telling the tale of the production of a classic; the story of how Walt Disney bought the rights to Mary Poppins, and the story behind the iconic flying nanny.

If Hollywood teaches us anything lately it’s that evil sells. Think of Disney, alone. You will be hard pressed to find any of their cash cow cartoons without an utterly evil antagonist. Which I love. It seems like you take the scary, evil guy in any horror movie and stack them against Dr. Facilier from ‘Princess and the Frog‘, or Maleficent from ‘Sleeping Beauty‘, and my favorite, although he’s far less scary – Captain Hook from ‘Peter Pan‘. I repeat. Evil sells. Every major motion picture studio and every 3rd grader with dreams of being a film maker know this, too.

Blu-Ray Review: ”Life of Pi’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2013

Ang Lee’s vision of Yann Martel’s 2001 novel, ‘Life of Pi’ is one of the most visually beautiful films I have seen in a long time. If this film was made back when the book came out, which was over ten years ago, the movie would not have been as beautiful as it was today, due to the technology advancements we’ve had in just ten short years.  ’Life of Pi’ is one of the better 3D productions I have seen and if you choose to see this movie, see it in 3D.  ’Life of Pi’ will appeal to all audiences and you will find yourself falling in love with Pi and a majestic Bengal tiger, even if ’Life of Pi’ is good for only one or two viewings.

Benicio Del Toro is now deciding if he wants to join Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros. new film, “Inherent Vice”.  Paul Thomas Anderson is the writer-director of this gem that he has adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s crime novel. The film will be set during the spring of 1970 and will follow a reefer loving detective Doc Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates a kidnapping.  Del Toro’s character will be an attorney who always comes to the aid of Sportello, but it will not be a major role. This role will could be meaty enough to steal some of Phoenix’s thunder. If anyone could do it, Del Toro can.

Here is Fernando’s ‘Evil Dead’ Review!!

Evil-Dead-Remake-Featured-2013

Holy smokes, if you’re a horror fan, you need to see this film immediately.  Most of us are familiar with the Sam Raimi masterpiece, The Evil Dead.  The 2013 version is a remake, make no mistake about that, but it is one of the few remakes that actually holds ground with the original source material.

Film Review: ‘Bless Me, Ultima’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m a huge fan of stories with magical realism in them.  One of my favorite novels I’ve ever read is ‘100 Years of Solitude‘, which exudes magical realism from start to finish. I think I am so fascinated by it, because I like to think it exists. That there is some magic in this world, no matter how vague or small it might be, helping us move forward as a society and as humans.  When I heard that Rudolfo Anaya’s  controversial novel of the same name was being adapted to a film, I was instantly intrigued. ‘Bless Me, UItima‘ is a wonderful coming-of-age film with fine filmmaking and at times was quite magical.

Film Review: ‘Identity Thief’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

There hasn’t been a decent comedic road trip movie since Todd Phillips‘ 2000 comedy, ‘Road Trip‘. And with the recent ‘Guilt Trip‘ flick not performing well, I had some hope that ‘Identity Thief‘ would spark another engine in the comedy genre. Unfortunately, due to the scripted laughs, and unlikable main character, it falls it bit flat. I have no doubt though that the talented Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman will bring in big numbers at the box office, however the word will spread quickly that ‘Identity Thief’ is forgettable and ultimately unsatisfying.

Oh man, this movie looks so good.  Michael Shannon might be one of the best actors out there right now.  Everything he’s in is amazing.  His role on HBO’sBoardwalk Empire‘ is creepy and yet satisfying. And I know he is just going to be the best Zod in the upcoming ‘Man of Steel‘ ever.  Now, we get him as a serial killer and assassin, with what looks like one hell of a cast minus David Schwimmer.  The trailer looks very intense.  Can’t wait to see it.
