Film Review: ‘Miles Ahead’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

milesahead1-1600x900-c-default

 Miles Davis is one of the best jazz musicians to have ever lived. His life in and out of the studio was well-documented and full of surprises, success, and downfalls. It all translated into his one-of-a-kind sound on each of his albums, and he became one of the top purveyors and creators of modern jazz. Actor Don Cheadle (‘House of Lies‘) is obviously a big fan of the musician, and personally financed and stepped into the writing and directing chair for this one, marking this project as his first directorial effort, as well as the star in this Miles Davis biopic titled ‘Miles Ahead‘.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

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 »

Are you upset that you won’t be seeing Don Draper & Co. returning to the small screen this fall? Yeah…me, too. At least we can all thank Netflix for streaming the first four seasons of “Mad Men” until Season 5 starts next year.

Even though I’ve seen all four seasons of “Mad Men” about a zillion times (so far), I can also get my Swingin’ 60s fix from the Ramsey Lewis Trio and their incredible “Bach To The Blues” LP. Read the rest of this entry »

Jonathon Here…

I currently find myself in a difficult situation, now that “Mad Men” Season 4 has recently concluded, which leaves me and my other dedicated and faithful followers ravenous for more swingin’ Don Draper action. Options to alleviate this dilema include A) re-watching ‘Mad Men’ Seasons 1-3 all over again obsessively until the start of Season 5, or B) listen to some swingin’ 60s records in hopes it’ll pass the time. With thanks to my grandparent’s hidden treasure trove of bitchin’ 60s vinyl I think I’ll be able to get my Don Draper-like fix for the next few months.

License to Drive getting all Female Remake!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Terrible news, everyone. Hollywood is remaking the 1988 comedy ‘License to Drive‘ that starred Corey Haim and Corey Feldman. This time, it’s going to be all women in the lead roles. So basically, they are going to Ghostbuster it up, meaning this will be a complete shit-show. Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles will develop the remake, according to Deadline, which is being described like a female version of Superbad and License to Drive.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Here’s the Top 10 Music Films!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Jonathan A., here…

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

Author Jo Nesbo, of the Harry Hole series, is in negotiations for the film rights of the novel, Blood on the Snow, with Warner Brothers. This will be a vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio to possibly star, but definitely produce through his Appian Way banner along with partner Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Kevin McCormick through Langley Park. The storyline focuses on a hit man who encounters a case of falling in love with his target, after being assigned to take out the wife of his boss.
