Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson is leading the new action film from MGM, called Seal Team 666. I have to admit, this book is on my list of must-reads. It’s going to get bumped up to the list of must-read before seeing the movie, now. Johnson has proven himself to be a bankable asset for just about any movie he’s taken on. He hit fans everywhere with a jab by co-starring  in the addicting Fast and Furious franchise. He intends to double that jab with Fast and Furious 7, then plans to hit us with a TKO with Hercules. After the dust settles from the 10 count, he will already be in operation mode for Seal Team 666.

Hi, Bryan Here….

It looks like actress Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass/Hugo) will be taking on the iconic role of ‘Carrie’ in the remake by Kim Pierce.  The decision was made after a group of actresses sat down for a table read and Chloe did so well, they formally offered her the role today.  ‘Carrie’ is a remake of the Brian De Palma version based on the 1974 Stephen King novel of the same name.

MGM and Sony Join Forces to Make Bond 23!!!!

Hi Bryan Here….

So we all know the dilemma and turmoil plaguing James Bond with MGM.  Well “GOOD NEWS EVERYONE” (in my best professor Farnsworth voice)!   MGM and Sony have settled down and we will have a new BOND film.  This could have taken years and years, but luckily they had the right people high up and they wanted to make some good films….or make money.

Hunter S. Thompson TV Series is Coming to Bat Country!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2017

The only way this show will work is if a network like HBO, Starz, Showtime, or Netflix are behind it.  Hunter S. Thompson deserves the best, and those networks are the best to produce a TV show of that caliber. MGM TV and Davey Holmes have come together to make ‘Fear and Loathing‘, which will follow the drug-fueled journalistic adventures of Hunter S. Thompson.

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.

Kevin Smith is everywhere these days. He’s making movies with food that wants to kill you, podcasting in multiple cities, selling his comic books at his retail stores, and even conducting interviews for IMDB at film festivals. “The guy is like MacGyver. No, motherfucker’s better than MacGyver.” Since his last film ‘Yoga Hosers‘, Smith has been making some DC television series on top of teasing us with stories of a ‘Clerks III‘ film and a ‘Mallrats‘ sequel series, both of which I would have sold my Michael Jackson statue to see.

Film Review: ‘A Monster Calls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 4th, 2017

Dan M., here…

maxresdefault

A Monster Calls’ is a kid version of ‘Manchester by the Sea’. I mean that in the nicest way possible. As one of 15 alleged movie fans in America who didn’t love ‘Manchester by the Sea’ (I hope this doesn’t hurt my review street cred) it is important for me to compare these two films, which at their core, deal with loss, grief, and growing up. The amazing part for me is that I think ‘A Monster Calls’ tackles these themes and issues in a more effective manner.

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.

Texas-Chainsaw-2-Blu-ray

THE FILM

The original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ is one of the best horror films of all time. It still holds that title to this day. One thing most people don’t realize though is that the original film was made in such a way to evoke terror and horror, that it was filmed in such a manner as to show almost not gore, blood, or violence. It was all left off-screen for the most part. In return, this was a low-budget independent horror film that was fast-paced, horrific, and wildly entertaining, if not scary-as-hell. It truly is one of the perfect horror movies. some twelve years later, the original director Tobe Hooper came back and directed a sequel titled ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II‘.

Interesting news is afoot with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is the End, Preacher). The writing/directing duo purchased the rights to the ‘Where’s Waldo‘ franchise back in 2011 and it looks like MGM is ready to greenlight a live action version of it. You remember ‘Where’s Waldo‘ – the guy in the striped wool hat that is dressed in red, white, and blue, with glasses that you spent hours looking for in many books. The screenplay is written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, who according to Deadline have been taken under the wings of Goldberg and Rogen for some time now.

Film Review: ‘Hail, Caesar!”

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

hail-caesar-josh-brolin

It’s always a good time when the Coen Bros. have a new movie in theaters. Film after film, the Coen Bros. have not only told bizarre, funny, violent, musical stories, but have conjured up some of the best characters in movie history. Their uncanny talent for telling stories on film is unrivaled with each movie they make. Their latest endeavor tackles the early years of Hollywood, specifically the year 1951, in a film called ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ that has an A-List cast of Coen regulars and newcomers. Even though the posters and trailers show this A-List cast throughout, the film follows one man, and that is Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), based on the real life Mannix who was a big time producer and  “fixer” at MGM.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

3.4.11KevinSmithByLuigiNovi1

Kevin Smith is a film maker that turned the business of making movies on it’s head. He hit the jackpot with 1994’s ‘Clerks‘. The script had “personal experience” written all over it and it made a very unexpected splash. Since then Smith has laid some pretty decent comedy on film, excluding ‘Jersey Girl‘.  I adore most of his films and it all started with ‘Clerks‘. Smith kept the indie-style film making with him the whole way. Nothing could prove that more than his latest film, ‘Tusk‘.

I’ve never seen anything like it. We discuss his ‘Red State‘ premiere in Kansas City, ‘Tusk‘, and his favorite scene in film, which might surprise some of you.

We also reported  earlier last week that Morgan Freeman was cast in the film. He will play Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become the big bad chariot racer he turns out to be. And for a while, we were hearing that studio execs were putting out the offer to Tom Hiddleston (Loki from ‘The Avengers‘). But that’s not the case now.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

 

 

ben-hur2

 

If you’re new to the site you may not know how I have railed against the habit film makers have of taking classic movies and re-tooling them into what they deem bigger and better. If you’re not new, sorry, had to point that out! Anyhow, I have certain rules that make a re-imagining somewhat acceptable. One of them is if the original has been out for more than 50 years, go for it. If there were only crappy and really horrid special effects in the original, I’m looking at you Bubo, then go for it, but you better knock that flick out of the park! I’m talking about mind-melting special effects and balls to the wall violence. There is something to be said for childhood favorites, no matter how awful that cutting edge technology was, now. This bit of news falls into both categories.

Hi, Jana here,

coens

If we were to talk about filmmakers that have a specific feel to their films there would be a wide variety of names on that list. But if we narrow the field down to filmmakers that are a wildly successful pair of brothers, Joel and Ethan Coen would undoubtedly fit the bill.

The Coen’s have a peppered legacy of complex films with ‘Raising Arizona‘, ‘Fargo‘, ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou‘ among many others. Looks like the pair is not taking any time off from a career that has most recently been recognized with an Academy Award nomination for 2013’s ‘Inside Llewyn Davis‘. Universal Pictures has picked up ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ the latest original screenplay from the Coen’s. Besides writing the script, they will direct stars George Clooney and Josh Brolin in starring roles.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joel Kinnaman

Over the past year, I’ve been writing stories on the upcoming ‘Robocop‘ remake. As I found out more and more information about this reboot of the franchise, I was becoming less and less excited about it. It might of been the fact that it was getting a PG-13 rating, the change in the suit, or many of the other differences that were popping up from the original 1987 film that starred Peter Weller. Hell, even Weller himself said he was not looking forward to the remake and even compared his 1987 film to the likes of ‘Casablanca‘, which is hilarious.

Amazon’s Prime Streaming Service just got a hell of a lot better.  It will be giving Netflix a run for its money.  EPIX signed a deal with Amazon that more than doubles Amazon’s streaming film catalogue.  This comes shortly after EPIX’s contract with Netflix expired.  Now films from Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate will be available on Amazon’s Streaming service.  “We think customers will really enjoy watching new titles like The AvengersIron Man 2 and The Hunger Games on their Kindle Fire, PlayStation 3, Xbox, iPad or any of the other of the Amazon Instant Video compatible devices,” says Amazon VP Bill Carr. Epix CEO Mark Greenberg calls the deal “a great line extension” for Amazon.  Read the official press release below.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Jackson will play a media mogul.  Laurie will play the evil rich CEO of Omnicorp that makes Robocop.

Gary Oldman Joins ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Gary Oldman has just signed on to star in MGM’s remake of ‘Robocop’.  If you didn’t know that ‘Robocop’ was being remade, well now you do.  Blasphemy, I know.  Joel Kinnaman will play Alex Murphy/Robocop with Jose Padilha directing.  Kinnaman is best known for his role on ‘The Killing’ on AMC.  Padilha has directed a few documentaries along with ‘Elite Squad’.  Needless to say, I have no hope for this film.

Bryan Reviews ‘Gog’ DVD!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 14th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I love old 50’s sci-fi movies.  I always have and I always will.  There’s just something that brings me back to the 80’s growing up watching old sci-fi movies with my dad that makes everything in life seem better.  ‘Gog’, a 1954 sci-fi film was recently released by MGM on DVD and it was a blast.  I really enjoyed the film for what it was and it brought back a bit of that nostalgic feeling from my younger days.

Hi Bryan Here….

Good news everyone.  Billy Connolly has joined the cast in the role of Dain Ironfoot, a great dwarf warrior and cousin of Thorin Oakenshield.  Such good news.  Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh took a hiatus from ‘The Hobbit’ to introduce the ‘West Memphis Three’ documentary at Sundance, since they funded quote a bit of the DNA testing for the freedom of the three guys. Once back on ‘The Hobbit’, they cast Connolly.

The Hit 1983 ‘War Games’ To Be Remade!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

That’s right.  Another one of my childhood movies is getting the reboot treatment.  This time it is the 1983 ‘War Games’ that starred Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy who were computer prodigies who find a back door into a military computer program. They think they are playing games with the computer only to find they could trigger WWIII if the computer launches nuclear missiles at the Russians.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2010

Today’s Geek deal will take you to the merry o’ land of Oz.  That’s right.  The Wizard of Oz (1939) film is on sale over at Amazon.  This is the 70th anniversary collector’s edition BLURAY.


It comes with:


The movie in 1080p picture and Dolby TrueHD sound

Ultimate Collector’s Edition:

  • Limited-edition 70th-anniversary watch
  • Original 1939 campaign book reproduction
  • Behind the Curtain of Production 1060: 52-page commemorative book
  • Replica of original movie budget

All-new singalong feature (requires BD-Live or BonusView-enabled Blu-ray player)

Extras featuring the life and times of original author L. Frank Baum and early-screen adaptations of the Oz books, the original Baum silent The Patchwork Girl of Oz, and the complete The Magic Cloak of Oz

Nearly four hours of extras new to this collection, including a documentary profile of director Victor Fleming, the TV movie special The Dreamer of Oz, and the 2007 Hollywood Walk of Fame salute to the Munchkins

MGM: When the Lion Roars bonus movie (standard DVD).

This normally sells for about $85.00, but for TODAY ONLY you can click on the link/picture below and get it for $36.99.  That is over 50% off.

Now I do already own this on BLURAY, and let me tell you, it is a reference BLURAY that I show to friends and family when they come over to see how really AWESOME bluray and high definition can really be.  It is like watching a completely different film.  A film that was made in the 1930’s.  I can actually tell that the some of the munchkins had multicolored mohawks or that Glinda’s witch was kinda see-through.  This is an excellent purchase for a great price.  Great as a holiday gift.

Take advantage of the sale by clicking below.

Robocop trilogy coming Bluray…

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 31st, 2010

MGM/FOX announced that the Robocop trilogy will be coming to Bluray on October 5th.

If you remember the first film took place in the city of the future which was Detroit, BUT…was all filmed in the great city of Dallas.  Throughout the whole movie you can see the downtown skyline and uptown landmarks.

Hopefully MGM/FOX does not screw this release up.  I am hoping for behind the scenes/bloopers/commentaries/deleted scenes/and interviews from present day with the actors.  Do not make this a bare bones release or …..there will be…. trouble.

No extras have been announced for this release yet.

Pre-order your copy HERE.
