Blu-ray Review: The Fate of the Furious!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’re eight movies into this franchise, which would have you assume that these films would have lost steam, been remade, or have a completely new cast. That’s not the case at all with ‘Fate of the Furious‘ or the 8th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, because there are no signs of this franchise slowing down, being remade, or losing any of its fun cast.

Dan M. Gives His Thoughts on ‘Fate of the Furious’!

Dan M., here….

Fast & Furious: Civil War

(Feel free so scroll to the bottom if you’re here to talk Jason Statham.)

After the death of Paul Walker and the 7th film there has been lots of speculation as to where the Fast & Furious franchise would go and the 8th movie definitively answers that question: Anywhere it damn well pleases. By the end of The Fate of the Furious, the loudest, most insane, and dumbest (in a good way) entry in the series, the stage is set for 100 more of these films and I’d sign up for 99 of them. While many franchises are working as hard as they can to justify spinoffs and team up films, the Fast & Furious put itself in a position to justify a number of spinoffs. As a film universe goes, Fast & Furious is behind only Marvel.

Dan M., Here…. 

fast-and-furious-04252011

I saw The Fast and The Furious when I was 14 or 15. As someone who grew up watching Point Break on VHS and other 80s/90s action movies it was right in my wheel house. I have never been a car guy but I still remember that summer talking with my friends about Honda Civics, Nos, and spoilers that we’d all be getting when we turned 16. The first movie is a step by step remake of Point Break, right down to letting the “bad guy” go at the end with “I owe you a 10 second car” instead of “Vaya Con Dios.” It stared two relatively unknowns in Paul Walker and Vin Diesel who will never be confused with Daniel Day Lewis but were born to play these parts. Ultimately was a fun summer popcorn movie that no one thought they’d hear from again, let alone turn into an almost 4 billion dollar franchise.

If you had to pick a leading female actor to play the villain in what’s largely been a male dominated franchise, like for the eighth installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, who would it be? If it were me, I might look at the star of  ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘, Charlize Theron. She was a welcome addition to the George Miller film which has gained multiple Oscar nominees.

Film Review: ‘Machete Kills’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

www.indiewire

‘Machete don’t tweet’ is one of the lines that is uttered by Danny Trejo’s iconic character, Machete Cortez in this new hilarious fun-as-hell sequel by Austin director Robert Rodriguez. It’s one of several “Machete don’t” pieces of dialogue that is said throughout the film. It’s funny, because Rodriguez actually made a ‘Star Wars‘ film with Machete in it this time around. Not only do we see machete lightsabers and similar characters in the ‘Star Wars’ universe, but we also get carbonite and landspeeders, and at the end of the film, it all comes full circle, as you’ll say, “I just watched a ‘Star Wars’ movie made by Robert Rodriguez. With an all-star cast and even more blood, guts, and kills than the first one, this over-the-top and highly entertaining sequel will sure make decent returns to warrant a third sequel, which is heavily promoted in the form of a trailer before the film starts and at the end of the film entitled ,’Machete Kills Again…In Space‘.

Film Review: ‘Fast & Furious 6’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

fast_and_furious_6-wide

Universal’s biggest film franchise has hit number six with more than $1.5 billion in previous sales. And it looks like this new sequel/prequel will even push that amount further into another billion, despite its awful dialogue and numerous over-the-top, zany action sequences, which seems to make the audience laugh more often than cause suspense. That being said, this film does deliver what the audience has wanted since the first film. That is all of the original actors are back this time, which includes Michelle Rodriguez. I have no doubt this will score big at the box office. At least Universal seems to think so, as they have already greenlit part 7, which will be released next July and promises more stars and bigger action.

This new poster below is all sorts of kick-ass.  It features the beautiful Sofia Vergara as the deadly Desdemona which looks like she has a unique skill. I loved the original one, and I know we live in a perfect world when ‘Machete‘ gets two films. The cast includes: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.

Hi Bryan Here….

Another year, another ‘Resident Evil’ film.  What number are they on now?? 5000?  Well this one is called ‘Resident Evil: Retribution’.  And Paul W.S. Anderson is back in the director’s chair, this time with the unkillable Milla Jovovich and badass Michelle Rodriguez running around stomping zombies.  I must say, that this trailer looks a bit decent compared to the last couple of films.  You be the judge.

Why Have I Not Heard About This Movie Until Now?

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2010

Michelle Rodriguez is starring in a remake of Citizen Kane.  I  do not know if this is real or fake.  But I am intrigued.  “What would you xanadu?”


“The official plot synopsis is: Citizen Jane stars Michelle Rodriguez as Charlotte Foster Jane, a lethal assassin hell bent on avenging the murder of her parents in this guns blazing, action packed retelling of Orson Welles 1941 classic, Citizen Kane.”

“She will do anything for her Rosebud…”


Why have I not heard about this?  Does this have the potential to kick ass?  YES it does.

Bryan Has A Ball With Machete (Machete Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2010

Just a warning before you read this review.  This review has a few minor spoilers in it so stop reading if you do not want to know anything about “Machete”.

Ever since Grindhouse was released and the world was given the ever so small glimpse of “Machete”, I knew I wanted to  see it as quickly as possible.  After hearing about the casting decisions, I wanted even more to see this film with Robert De Niro, Michelle Rodriguez, Steven Segal, Jeff Fahey, Jessica Alba, and Don Johnson lending themselves to this “fun as hell film.

Now I really enjoy most the films of Robert Rodriguez including: El Mariachi, Desperado, Sin City, Dusk Till Dawn, and his segment of Four Rooms, but I really do not care for Once Upon a Time in Mexico, or the Spy Kids films, Sharkboy, or Shorts all that much.  So I was just a tad bit uneasy that “Machete” would fall into the latter category of films I did not like.  Well safe to say, that “Machete” falls into the films I love.

It’s time of release has been coincided with Sylvester Stallone’s “The Expendables”.  Now Sly made Expendables with trying to make it realistic and true to nature whereas “Machete” is far from that.  It is a work of complete off the wall awesomeness and far from reality which makes it that much better.

Now you should know that “Machete” has balls to the wall gore throughout the film and naked women.  One of those naked ladies is Lindsay Lohan.  But you will get to see tons of decapitations, bloody head shots, tons of entrails, amputations, and a gigantic heap of machete kills.  Even at one point “Machete” guts an evil doer and pulls out his intestines and jumps out the 4th story hospital window and swings into the 3rd story window on the intestines.  That was an “OHMYGOD!”  and there are plenty of those.

Danny Trejo was born to play this role.  He moves through each frame with such a cool swagger that it looks like the whole film was shot in slow motion.  Trejo just owns this movie.  And his surrounding supporting cast is just as good.

Steven Segal plays the evil man which is out of the ordinary for Segal, but Segal plays this role so easily and it makes me wonder, why he hasn’t been a horrible villain more often.  He is great as a villain.  I must say that Segal’s death is one of the best and funniest deaths I have ever seen in a film.  It made me laugh hysterically.

Cheech Marin well is Cheech Marin and has the best dialogue exchange with Trejo in the entire film.  Cheech is just a great character actor and it shows along with Fahey’s evil republican role.  They just do such a great job of it.

Now what would a Rodriguez film be without the us of make-up artist legend Tom Savini.  Yes.  Savini might have the best cameo roles ever.  Right up there with Bill Murray in Zombieland.  You might remember Savini as “Sex Machine” from Dusk Till Dawn.  The character with the gun attached to his privates.  Well Savini in this film plays “Osiris”.  A very skilled hardcore hitman.  Every scene with “Osiris” is gold.  Let us hope they make a spin-off movie of “Osiris” or at least a sequel to “Machete”.

This film’s reason is to make an excellent exploitation or should I say “Mex-ploitation” film that takes one hardcore badass seek his vengeance and justice through the evil people of the world.  Simple as that.

Loved it and am looking forward to more.

The Rock is the new WWE Champion, and this guy and I are pissed off about it – CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW PISSED OFF WE ARE!!

Yes, The Rock was my favorite WWE performer in wrestling’s heyday at the turn of the millennium. But in 2003, Dwayne Johnson left WWE to become the thinking man’s Vin Diesel. He used his success as a WWE Superstar to springboard into movies, and that’s great. But CM Punk doesn’t want to springboard anywhere. CM Punk wouldn’t trade the WWE Championship for a featured role in the Fast and Furious franchise, and no one looks at CM Punk and thinks “Oh yeah, the strong man’s William H. Macy.”
