Taylor Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2012

Taylor Here….

I was worried about Men in Black III.  Almost every minute of Men and Black II made me wish I’d snuck in a beer or six, and I don’t think I could take more disappointment from Will Smith.  I still haven’t fully forgiven him for Hancock. The third installment turned out to be about 1000% better than the second effort, chock full of witty one-liners, truly disgusting alien encounters, and a few good men who look damn fine in black suits and skinny ties.

FedMex Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 24th, 2012

FedMex Here…

When Men in Black came out in 1997, we got a very different and original script showcasing one of Hollywood’s most popular actors alongside one of Hollywood’s most respected actors as an elite group of government agents that keep aliens under control on Earth.  Five years later, someone slapped together a sequel that made no sense.  It featured a Jar-Jar Binks-like alien, and had us shaking our heads in disappointment.

Bryan Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was very apprehensive about seeing the third installment of ‘Men In Black’.  I really loved the first film back in 1997.  I was sixteen at the time and remembered how much fun the original film was and what magical characters and comedy it brought audiences worldwide.  Then came the second installment of Men In Black in 2002 which was dull, boring, dialed in, and lacked any real good memories or fun.  I thought that the franchise was done.  That is until I saw ‘Men In Black 3’.   ‘Men In Black 3’ easily makes us remember what we loved about the original film and brings back those elements and even improves on them.  I can see future  ‘Men In Black’ films in the future if they keep this good work up.

The New ‘Men In Black 3’ Trailer Looks Promising!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

While I wasn’t a huge fan of ‘Men In Black 2’, this third one actually looks good.  Josh Brolin does a spot on impression of Tommy Lee Jones.  See, Brolin will play a younger Tommy Lee Jones when Will Smith’s character goes back in time to save the world.  One question I have is since we are getting a third ‘Men In Black’ film, will we be getting a 3rd ‘Men In Black’ song by Will Smith?  Enjoy the trailer.

Hi Bryan Here…

Well the correct term is Monocycle, and yes they are a  real thing.  Here is an image from the new ‘Men in Black 3’ film where we see Will Smith and James Brolin riding one of the Mono Cycles.  From what I remember, Will Smith travels back in time and meets the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones played by Brolin.  I hope part 3 is better than 2.  And I must say…this monocycle looks very familiar.  What do you think?

We’ve Got Some Images From Men In Black 3!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 13th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Yes “Men In Black 3” is currently in production despite its horrific script problems of the last several months.  Director Barry Sonnenfeld is hard at work with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin for an anticipated release in 2012.  The Daily Mail has the full story on the matter.

There is a new boss of Men in Black 3 and they are…..

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2010

Men in Black 3 starts shooting soon and there is a new cast mate that was added.  The great Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility and Love Actually) will lend her talent to the sequel.  She will be playing the new boss of MIB.  This was originally played by the great Rip Torn, but as recent months have shown, he has gone bat shit crazy, and the powers that will be think it is too risky to hire him.  Which they are right to do so.

I think Emma Thompson will be a great replacement and addition to this cast.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be returning as well as Barry Sonnenfeld to direct.

Add to that cast Josh Brolin and Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and you got yourself one hell of a movie.  Brolin will play a younger Tommy Lee Jones character and Jermaine will be the villain of the movie.

Looking forward to 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: Orange is the New Black: Season 4!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 6.24.28 PM

THE SERIES

In the past, Orange is the New Black has developed a darkly comic and often tragic story with their series over the past few seasons, and this fourth season is no different, although it would seem things are more on the comedy side this time around than unhappy faces at the women’s prison. The show’s writers and producers can certainly weave current politics and social issues in to the show with ease in each character, but with season four, it seems like certain plot points are over-the-top.

And Cue the ‘White Men Can’t Jump’ Remake!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-17 at 1.37.21 PM

20th Century Fox is now remaking ‘White Men Can’t Jump‘, which was the 1992 comedy hit that starred Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Rosie Perez. The original film was about a couple of street basketball player hustlers, who team up to earn more money. The film was a big success, as it made $91 million. Kenya Barris, who is the creator of the ABC comedy show ‘Black-ish‘ will be teaming up with Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin and Carolina Panther Ryan Kalil to remake the film with Barris as the producer and writer of the film. Kalil and Griffin will serve as the other producers, according to THR.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

mad-max-fury-road-black-and-chrome-bluray

THE FILM

It’s a damn shame that every action movie can’t be as good as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘. So many action films will try, but will ultimately fail for a variety of reasons. Pure action filmmaking and movies just don’t get better than this movie. ‘Fury Road‘ is a troubled story to say the least. Original creator George Miller who made the original three ‘Mad Max‘ films had the idea for this fourth installment back in 1998. That’s 17-years ago. This project wasn’t necessarily put on a hold shelf, but a few things had happened to delay the film from being made. From 9-11 to foreign policy, to Mel Gibson’s infamous arrest, there were a variety of things that prevented this movie from seeing the light of day.

In the world of reboots, ‘Predator‘ is a new one that can be put at the top of the list of “But why?” In all fairness, it’s labeled as both a reboot and a sequel, but it makes me happier to think about this film as a continuation of the first film. What the project does have going for it, is Shane Black has signed on to direct and Benicio Del Toro is eyeing the project to star.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Lego Brickumentary’!

by Janet White on Jan 6th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A Lego Brickumentary

 

THE FILM

 

When you were a kid, which of your toys was limited only by your imagination?  Dolls?  Cars and fire engines?  Your Big Wheel? For many people, it was LEGOs.  If you could imagine it, with hard work and lots of LEGOs you could bring it to the third dimension.  A LEGO Brickumentary explores the origin, innovation, and longevity of this building block known around the world.  Guided by a trusty LEGO minifigure narrator (Jason Bateman), the film travels from the outer reaches of space to LEGO’s birthplace, Denmark.  What Ole Kirk Christiansen created started out as solid red blocks with small knobs to attach it to other blocks (“Clutch Power”) has evolved into translucent, motorized, and magnetic units available in a bevy of different colors.  Chock full of facts and awe-inspiring constructs, A LEGO Brickumentary reveals there is more to this block and its uses are infinite or are they?  For example, the name LEGO comes from the Danish word Leg Godt, which means “play well.”   Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

polaroid

Is anyone else sick of the remakes out there or is it just me? Based on the number of fans that trek to the local cineplex and plunk down heard-earned cash for a ticket to watch the new big thing which is just  remake of what the big thing was 20 years ago make me think I’m alone. Sometimes a remake comes along before it’s even 20 years old which just makes me all kinds of stabby. Especially when it’s done to such a well-made flick like ‘Memento‘. The directing juggernaut that is Christopher Nolan launched into Hollywood with this flick and it’s still a prime look at exemplary director skills. In a world of beating the same dead horse for movie ideas, this plot is fantastic in its originality, which may be one reason it’s been cherry-picked for a remake.

Film Review: ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

february

We’ve seen our fair share of demonic possession movies over the past several decades with some standing out in the spotlight and scaring us for years on end. Then there is the other side of this coin where these demonic possession movies fall very short from making any kind of sense other than to produce cheap scares. That brings us to the movie ‘February‘ or as it’s being called now ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter‘, written and directed by Oz Perkins, who is more an actor than a director, this being his directorial debut.

Film Review: ‘Black Mass’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 8.01.58 PM

It’s okay to look at ‘Black Mass‘ as a distant sequel to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movies. Both have bad guys, wars, guns, monsters, and Johnny Depp. Maybe I’m reaching a bit there, but it’s still fun to think about them as distant cousins in movies. The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger has been told a lot, especially recently. If you’re unfamiliar with who Bulger is, he was one of the most vicious and heinous human beings to ever walk the planet. He was even the FBI’s Most Wanted man for more than a decade, as he spent most of his time in Boston as a mafia boss who committed murder amongst other things.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I must admit, I’m a sucker for Italian mafia movies. Maybe it’s because part of my family actually hails from Sicily and I’ve heard tons of stories, which I still can’t tell are true or not. The truth is though, we all know that Italy has more than a handful of crime families still operating and doing “business”. Needless to say, there is probably enough material and trues stories to keep making Italian mafia films well into the next century. But I must warn you, if you’re looking for something as violent and fun as ‘The Godfather‘ or ‘Goodfellas‘, this little film called ‘Black Souls‘ might disappoint, however it shouldn’t.

A family has a mother, father, and maybe children, a standard definition of a family.  A family is a group of people who are related to each other, yet another definition.  Nowhere in either definition is a mention of color, right?  Since the beginning of time families have blended nationality, ethnicity, and race.  This fact doesn’t make the families any less bound.

Jude Law in a submarine movie, you say? Why yes please. I had only hoped that we would get Jude Law playing ‘Dom Hemingway‘ again here, talking about his private parts in such a way that it seems poetic, but unfortunately that’s not the case with his character or this film, titled ‘Black Sea‘. Director Kevin Macdonald has an impressive resume for sure, with films like ‘Marley‘ and ‘The Last King of Scotland‘ under his belt. Where those award winning films might have shown us something more on a serious level whether it be about a historical figure or brilliant musician, ‘Black Sea‘ tends to journey into the ludicrous realm on am adult ‘Hardy Boys‘ type of quest.

There is a new documentary that is currently being made called ‘Haunters‘, which is being made by Jon Schnitzer. This documentary looks all sorts of fun as it looks to be the ultimate look inside how some of the scariest Haunted Houses are made across the country. I’m not talking about real haunted houses. I’m talking about the fun Haunted Houses that we all go to during the Halloween season. Some are truly scary and some are fairly laughable. ‘Haunters‘ seems to dive into how each haunted house is made, along with the costumes, make up effects, digital effects, and actors who make a living, performing in these scary houses.

Shane Black Tackles ‘The Destroyer’ for Sony!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Shane-Black

 

Everyone has favorite directors or writers and Shane Black has been one of mine since I fell in love with his work in the late 80’s. The first character that took my breath away was Martin Riggs from ‘Lethal Weapon‘, he also wrote ‘The Monster Squad‘ and gave birth to the line that any true 80’s child will say when they hear that film name – “Wolfman’s got nards!”  That’s when I took note of Shane Black and thought he was an under-rated gem in the writing world. That was quickly followed up with ‘The Last Boyscout‘ and ‘Last Action Hero’ films that supported the original idea that Black was talented and the first films were NOT a fluke.  Black then proved his mettle as a director/writer with the snarky offering into the world of noir with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘. This was Robert Downey Jr’s love song to Hollywood that signified the turning point of his career from troubled actor, to serious phenomenon ready to be taken seriously. Black gave him the direction and the words and RDJ slammed the ball out of the park. Black’s latest foray into directing came from ‘Iron Man 3‘ when he re-teamed with RDJ. He has 3 other projects in the wind at the moment with ‘The Nice Guys‘ a ‘Predator‘ reboot and ‘Doc Savage‘.

If you haven’t seen the original film ‘Black Dynamite‘, you should highly consider taking a few hours from your weekend and watching it. It’s highly entertaining. From the big cult success of that film, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim picked up the storyline in the form of an animated series. Needless to say, the series was just as good as the film. Hell, the first episode had Black Dynamite fighting an evil version of The Jackson Five. The series will be available July 15, on Blu-ray and DVD and will Include the 10 First Season Episodes Plus  a Behind-The-Scenes Featurette, and an Original Pilot and Video Commentaries.

We can all agree that AMC’sMad Men‘ by Matthew Weiner is one of the finer shows to ever grace the small screen. And over the past several years, we have seen a variety of parodies based off this great show. Some have been comical to serious and smart, to low-budget, to down right silly. But we haven’t seen a top notch blaxploitation parody of ‘Mad Men‘ yet. Well that is until now. This might be the best parody I have ever seen.

This is a movie over at Warner Bros., and is a high priority for the studio right now. So much so that the studio has offered the lead villain role to Javier Bardem. And since this is an Origin story, it won’t be Captain Hook.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2013

Jana B., Here….

hr_Fast___Furious_6_-Poster-Preview

To all the fans yelling for more of the Sean Boswell character from ‘Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift‘, the movie gods have heard your cry and answered. Lucas Black, who starred in Fast & Furious 3: Tokyo Drift, is returning to reprise his Sean Boswell role in Fast & Furious 7. Black,  has signed a deal that calls for his character to become a regular in the series and he will be part of at least the next three installments of Universal Pictures’ most lucrative film franchise. Fast & Furious 7 will be released next July 11.We most recently saw Black flex his acting muscles as Pee Wee Reese in the Jackie Robinson film ‘42‘. Before that he featured in ‘Friday Night Lights‘, ‘Cold Mountain‘ and my favorite Lucas Black role as Jeep Hanson in ‘Legion‘.

R.I.P. Karen Black!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Karen_Black

It sucks to write this, but Karen Black has just lost her battle with cancer a few minutes ago, according to her husband. Black was an amazing actress known for her work in the horror genre. She starred with Jack Nicholson in ‘Five Easy Pieces‘ and ‘Easy Rider‘. She also starred in ‘House of 1000 Corpses, The Day of the Locusts‘, and ‘Trilogy of Terror‘. She was an amazing woman and a badass actress. She will be missed greatly.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sony has finalized the deal to have ‘Iron Man 3‘ and ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘ director Shane Black to co-write and direct the next comic book adaptation of ‘Doc Savage‘. This is looking to be Black’s next directorial effort. I couldn’t be more thrilled with this news. I love Black’s work and I thought his ‘Iron Man 3‘ film was the best yet of the franchise as you can read HERE.

The Black Keys To Perform At The Grammys!

Hey rock and roll fans, Napkin Art here…

It’s that time of year again. The 55th Grammy Awards are happening on February 10, 2013, and the list of performers for the evening are starting to trickle in. You may have already seen the list of nominees, which is a slight improvement from past award ceremonies, but let’s hope this year’s performers won’t disappoint.

The only bands we give a damn about who are on the list of performers (so far) is The Black Keys and UK darlings, Mumford & Sons, who I’m sure, will be rocking the tunes they’ve been nominated for (The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” for ‘Record of the Year’, while the two face off for ‘Album of the Year’ nods, as well). Rihanna and Taylor Swift were also tapped to perform at the ceremony (yawn.) Hopefully, Jack White, who is also up for ‘Album of the Year’ nods for his best-selling debut LP, “Blunderbuss,” will also get tapped to perform. You know his performance alone will make The Grammys worth watching alone. Remember “Seven Nation Army” from the 46th Annual Grammy Awards?

What performers are you hoping to catch live at The Grammys this year?

Bryan’s DVD Review of ‘Black Hand’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…..

Classic Gene Kelly films are always a must.  Did you know Gene was in some some thrillers and mafia type films?  It’s true.  You should check out ‘Black Hand’.  This is billed as Gene’s first dramatic role, and he is great in it.  And with the big release of ‘Singing in the Rain’ recently, a few of Gene’s lesser known works are trickling out.  Although it is a made-to-order Warner Archive DVD with no extras, I still recommend this release.  You won’t regret it.

As time goes by the albums that have already obtained classic status continue to become greater classics, nay, timeless. Of course, there is also room for more recent albums of late to obtain such status, but some become classics the day of their release, such as The Black Keys’ debut LP “The Big Come Up.”

I thought I take a moment to recognize a really great record from the last ten years into a new segment for Classic Waxxx. It was also an opportune moment to word play on “Black Friday” as well as celebrate the band’s first release, as they ready their seventh and latest LP “El Camino,” which is sure to be a great addition to the rest of their catalog.

Record Store Day Black Friday 2011 Delivers Again

by NapkinArt on Nov 21st, 2011

As long as I can remember Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday. There really is no holiday on the calendar that centers around food and family, and it’s the one day of the year where it is ok to stuff yourself into a food coma. Thanksgiving is also a favorite holiday for many, but many love the holiday because of the shopping day after known as ‘Black Friday.’

The older I get the less inclined I feel to venture out into the crazy public and spend money the day after Thanksgiving, especially since I feelcompletely lethargic after all that turkey and stuffing. But thanks to Record Store Day Black Friday, I again have an excuse to spend some cash on music and perhaps walk off some of those calories. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi Bryan Here…..

I am too old for the Phineas and Ferb craze and culture, but I must say that this cartoon movie and the cartoon itself is quite spectacular.  Don’t get me wrong.  It is silly and stupid, but I can totally see this cartoon on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim line up.  It just needs the little push to become a little more raunchy and it will totally have it.  Phineas and Ferb I believe started in 2007 and this film ‘Across the 2nd Dimension’ was released earlier in 2011.  These crazy characters and hilarious and exciting adventure prove that Disney’s Phineas and Ferb can not only be loved by the young ones, but by teens and adults.

The Bishop Charlotte reporting….

In 1989, Herbert Ross directed a chick flick entitled Steel Magnolias and wowed America with an all-star cast. Dolly Parton, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Hannah, Olympia Dukakis, and new-at-the-time Julia Roberts played the titular tarts and used their acting chops to save a movie that could have been the most melodramatic film of the 80’s (which, let’s be frank, would be saying something.) Steel Magnolias pushed past its flaws and became a classic.

I have been laughing for the last ten minutes.  Cowdefender and I go way back.  Over a decade back.  We have seen in that span of time something like 3000 movies together.  Never once have I seen him walk out of a film.  And over the years we have seen some serious shit films.  So when he notified me that he walked out of a film, I immediately laughed out loud.  I mean I know this film would be awful, but I’m just so happy it was so bad to make Cowdefender walk out.  Well, here is his EPIC review.  Enjoy.

I think it is safe to say we can all collectively breathe a heavy sigh of relief. Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears have a new record releasing in March.

The much anticipated follow-up to their breakout hit record, 2009’s “Tell ‘Em What Your Name Is!”, “Scandalous” is already proving to be another ace up their sleeves. Their funky, raw and youthful vibe to American funk and soul music makes this Austin, TX band a sheer class act, one certainly not to be missed..

Since the first Iron Man film, Jon Favreau and Marvel have gone to great lengths to show us glimpses of some of our favorite superheroes in subtle ways throughout the Marvel hero films.


Now when we all pick up our copy of Iron Man 2 on bluray/dvd, take a close look and see if you see the references to Captain America, Thor, and Black Panther.


Specifically the scene featuring Tony Stark and Nick Fury discussing the Avengers Initiative, the background of which was littered with an assortment of footage, maps and images hinting at other Marvel properties.


[The first is] from “The Incredible Hulk”, which means Iron Man 2 took place before “The Incredible Hulk.” If you look you see the the crater on the other monitor, that’s the “Thor” thing. That’s where the hammer was recovered. This is just a geek heaven here.

And if you think that anything on this monitors is not something we at Marvel didn’t talk about for hours – you are crazy! See, there is a map up there, so… if you look at those maps, each one of those locations corresponds to something in the Marvel Universe. I’m not supposed to say that.

And if you look on each one, and I know what they mean, but I’m not gonna say it, but I’m gonna say this: Two of them relate to “The First Avenger: Captain America,” one of them relates to “Thor.” The one in Africa relates to Black Panther.

Pre-order the Iron Man 2 dvd/bluray below for a great discount.

Film Review: ‘Get Hard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

get-hard-hart-ferrell-2

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have teamed up together for their latest comedy project called ‘Get Hard‘ with enough double entendres for two movies. There are a couple of similarities from ‘Trading Places‘ and ‘Nothing To Lose‘ here in ‘Get Hard‘, but nothing really seems genuine or charming enough to remember this film much beyond two minutes after viewing it. Etan Cohen (not to be confused of the Coen Bros.) steps into the director’s seat for the first time, but has written screenplays such as ‘Men In Black III‘, ‘Tropic Thunder‘, and ‘Idiocracy‘. Clearly, he has some writing talent, but with ‘Get Hard‘, it seems like he just let Ferrell and Hart do their own thing, which can be outrageously funny at times, but can also run off on long tangents, which often happens with this movie.

Top Ten List of Technology from Films We Need Now!!

Sometimes, when we watch movies (even bad ones), we look at the technology used and think to ourselves “man, I really need that in my life”. The following is a list of the ten most “give it to me now” technological advances from cinema. This does not mean that the following movies are good, but that the technology used in them is highly desirable. To avoid the list becoming too narrow in focus (like weapons only), or convoluted by tech from one franchise (like Star Trek), the following list has a range of tech from weapons to medical gadgets, each from a completely different movie or franchise.

 What do you do when a Marvel movie flops with a more deafening thud than Crystal Pepsi? You re-tool it, sell it to Netflix where it becomes an episodic challenge. Where the feature film had big budgets and big stars to it’s credit, this series is going to attempt to make more out of less. Daredevil fans everywhere will have an opinion on what they expect from the new show. My expectations for this show is that it NOT suck. Not asking much, just the lack of major suckage.

The latest installment of ‘Ghostbusters‘ has turned into the questionable existence equivalent of the Loch Ness Monster of Hollywood. When someone reports that it’s in the making, I treat it like a Bigfoot sighting. “Pics or it didn’t happen” seems to be my response to not only the rumors of the giant furry humanoid living in the woods a mile from my house, or the claims that my kids actually get along away from home, this reaction  is also what I extend to any rumors or buzz that ‘Ghostbusters 3‘ is past anything but the talks stage.

Sony to Reboot ‘Zorro’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 10th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

Zorro

 The last swashbuckler to hit the big screen was Captain Jack Sparrow in the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ films, but before him, there was another. Back in 1922 the tales of Zorro gripped the world with his master swordsmanship  and championing the defenseless. Since then Hollywood has made some bank off of the masked man at least a dozen times and with varying success. I’m pleased to announce there is going to be a reboot of the Zorro films. Not so much a reboot of original stories, as a new movie based on a new book about Zorro. If that made sense, I might have a future in writing!

I’ve spoken with many people about their thoughts on seeing ‘R.I.P.D.‘ this weekend, and 9 out of 10 of them have said it looks terrible. In addition, I’ve heard a lot of studio people talking how this summer blockbuster that cost an estimated $130 million won’t even top out at $15 million this weekend. It’s a tough call as several movies come out this weekend, including a horror film that’s been generating a lot of good buzz. ‘R.I.P.D.‘, which is based on a Dark Horse comic series was surprisingly a lot of fun. Sure, it was silly stupid fun, but none-the-less, entertaining.

Perhaps this will be the better version of those movies that came out several years ago. The movie will release on February 23, 2018, which you can bet, I’ll be first in line for.

Film Review: ‘Roman J. Israel Esq.’!

Roman J. Israel, Esq. won’t be a box office hit, and if you aren’t black or a lawyer or somewhere in that venn-diagram, you probably aren’t wanting to go see it. But you should. If you’ve ever had a forgotten dream, no matter what your profession is or the color of your skin, you will identify with Roman. It’s uncomfortable to watch, it’s heartbreaking at times, but there’s laughter and Denzel Washington. Denzel is superb.  And honestly, Collin Farrell has redeemed himself in my eyes from The Lobster, so there’s really no reason to cast this one aside.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

A Deeper look into the ‘The Holiday’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2017

In 2006 a little movie by the name of ‘The Holiday’ was released unto the world from the place where all darkness flows. It now signifies the start of “Holiday Movie Season” for countless women across the globe. I believe it is solely responsible for the Hallmark Channel’s holiday film slate every November-December. However, the imitators don’t even come close to the unique mess this film is. I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie in one full sitting the past 5 years but it has been in such a rotation in my home that I’ve caught it in enough chunks to have seen it at least 10-12 full times since it came out in 2006. I really want to break down the absurdity of this movie to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

4K UHD Review: Westworld Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE SERIES


HBO’s new flagship show ‘Westworld‘ entered with a big bang in its first season. Since ‘Game of Thrones‘ is ending soon, HBO was ahead of the game and needed its new sci-fi action original show and ‘Westworld‘ was its name. That rhymed a little bit. Based on Michael Crichton’s story and film from 1973 of the same name, ‘Westworld‘ takes a theme park (much like Disneyland) to the next level. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you entered the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ ride at Disneyland.

You probably have heard the name Jeannette Walls. She is a journalist that was known for her Gossip column for MSNBC, but she is now known world-wide for her amazing novel ‘The Glass Castle‘, which was a memoir about her life growing up with her dysfunctional family. Her novel stayed on the Best Seller list for 261 weeks. If you think about that’s about four years and yes, it’s that good. Of course, Hollywood made a movie about it, which was directed by the amazing Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and starred Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

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.

Scooby Doo and Batman are coming to Blu-ray Together!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2017

I’m gonna go ahead and say it. There won’t be a better film than this all year. On January 9th, 2018, Warner Bros. is releasing ‘Scooby-Doo & Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ on Digital Streaming. How can Warner Bros. team up this duo? Well, the villains of the Batman universe have partnered up with the villains of the Scooby Doo universe to terrorize the city. Batman then decides to join the other detective agency of Mystery Inc with Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne, and Velma to fight crime. There are so many scenarios I want to see played out here. I want to see Batman slap Fred. I want to see Velma and Daphne fight over Batman. I want to see Shaggy try to unmask Batman. I want to see Scooby wear a Bat-Dog costume. I want the Joker and Ghost Clown to torture civilians. I don’t think this is asking for too much.

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.
