Hey guys, Jana here,

AAAAAAACAPTAINLONG

We’ve seen comic book movies take our favorite actors and turn them into gods, well not all of them, but it’s always exciting to see who is next to take up the mantle thrown down by Marvel and is capable of living up to the inked character they embody. ‘Captain America: Civil War‘ has just tapped Freeman for an unknown part in the sequel. and hits theaters May 6, 2016.

Film Review: ‘Whiskey Tango Foxtrot’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 2nd, 2016

Beka P., Here…

cq5dam.web.1280.1280

If you love Tina Fey, you will love Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, but if you thought you were in for Sisters takes Afghanistan you are going to be sorely disappointed. Let me be clear, I really enjoyed this movie. I liked it on a lot of levels. However, one thing I really dislike is when movies are billed as one thing and then show up as something else. It’s kind of like online dating… no one likes it when someone unrecognizable shows up to dinner.

Film Review: ‘Mr. Holmes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

I’m a huge fan of anything Sherlock Holmes. I’ve read the books, watched the TV series, and own the films. Heck, I even own some of the Sherlock Holmes stories on vinyl. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan. We’ve seen a ton of incarnations of the famous British detective over the years. Recently though, Holmes has become very popular due to the films that starred Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and of course the hit BBC series ‘Sherlock‘ that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson respectively. The amount of fandom for these projects have even spawned new shows and other films in the past year or so as well. It just seems that we all can’t get enough of Sherlock and those famous suspenseful mysteries.

THE FILM

We are at the end of this ‘Hobbit‘ trilogy with ‘The Battle of the Five Armies‘. The last three years seem to have gone by fairly fast. It seems like yesterday when I was writing about Warner Bros. heading back to Middle Earth with the ‘Hobbit‘. I was super stoked about it, because I was such a huge fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy. I think I saw each of those films five times in the theater, owned each version that came out on DVD and Blu-ray, and went back to see them when they were re-released. I just can’t get enough of the ‘LOTR‘ films. But shortly after the announcement that we were receiving a ‘Hobbit‘ film, things started going downhill.

Season 2 of ‘Fargo‘ is gearing up to start filming soon for FX, and rest assured, I can’t wait. The first season, which was based on The Coen Bros. Oscar winning film in the 90s was excellent. The first season starred Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thorton, Colin Hanks, and Allison Tolman.

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.

Monday night, BBC One tweeted a few clues regarding their hit TV show ‘Sherlock‘ saying “Sherlock – #221back” and “Did you miss me?” with a GIF of Moriarty. Then the network tweeted  “It’s all gone dark… Something’s coming… Or someone. Details at 2.21pm tomorrow.” Now we have official word that ‘Sherlock‘, starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman will return for a TV Special as well as a new season of three episodes.

Film Review: ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

desolation-of-smaug-dragon

And we’ve arrived in the 2nd year of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy with ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, and let me tell you, it’s a big improvement on the last film, which was released the same time last year. First off, we don’t have to spend a half hour inside Bilbo’s home with thirteen dwarves eating, drinking, and singing songs about washing dishes and Bilbo’s unhappy attitude. In this sequel things start off fast and to the point, which is sure to excite all audiences. Still, adapting J.R.R Tolkien’s less than 300 page novel into three separate films might be a bit much, but damn if it isn’t fun and highly entertaining this time around with a giant fire breathing dragon, some epic battles, a familiar elf, and an escape from orcs that I could watch 100 times in a row and never tire of. Just like the previous films set in Middle Earth, I expect another billion dollars for Jackson and co.

We are halfway there, folks. Peter Jackson’s middle sequel in his Hobbit series is coming out December 13th from Warner Bros. and it looks amazing. Here is your first look at the film, which we get to see full on, the dragon known as Smaug, which is voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch. I enjoyed the first film, but felt like there was something lacking from it, as you can read HERE. This looks intense and much better thatn ‘An Unexpected Journey‘. I can’t wait.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Film Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Welcome back to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson‘s version of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, which covers the first six chapters of the 19 chapter book, is very faithful to the original material. Jackson has gone back to the world that made him a household name and literally translated verbatim from page to screen, which is sure to blow the minds of fans of the book. However, at its almost 3 hour run-time, ‘The Hobbit‘ feels sluggish and never seems to pick up any sort of pace.  That being said, i have no doubt this movie will make hundreds of millions of dollars before the year is over.

2012 Emmy Award Winners!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Below is the list of the winners for the 2012 Prime-Time Emmy Award Winners.  I don’t  see how ‘Modern Family’ and ‘Two and Half Men’ win anything.  They shouldn’t win any kind of award when they go up against shows like ‘Mad Men’, ‘Game of Thrones’, and ‘Breaking Bad’.  The Emmy judges need to be fired and never allowed to pick winners ever again.  However, much congratulations to ‘Homeland’, ‘Downton Abbey’, Aaron Paul, ‘Veep’, and ‘American Horror Story’

Bryan’s Review of ‘Pirates: Band of Misfits’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Aardman Studios proves once again that it can turn out a very charming and hilariously funny film that is fun for all ages.  The claymation is top-notch and mixed with that famous dry humor we have come to love from Peter Lord and his creations.  In the likes of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, Peter Lord’s The Pirates! Band of Misfits is a great and pleasurable adventure.

Bryan Here…

So now that the Union has stopped protesting, since Peter Jackson threatened to move the Hobbit Film to Eastern Europe to shoot rather than keeping it in New Zealand, production is a go.  For now.

Below are who is cast so far in the Hobbit.  You might recognize some of them.

Martin Freeman will be Bilbo Baggins.  You might remember him from the UK Office tv series, love Actually, or Hot Fuzz.

Richard Armitage will be Thoren Oakenshield.  You might remember him from the tv shows of MI5 or the BBC Robin Hood Show.

Aidan Turner will be Kili.  You might recognize him from the tv shows of Being Human and The Clinic.

Rob Kazinski will be Fili.  You might know him from the BBC soap opera Eastenders.

Graham McTavish will be Dwalin.  You might recognize him from the last season of 24 or the last Rambo movie.

What do you think of the casting choices so far?
