Hellboy (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2019

 

“Hellboy (2019) is a waste of time, money, and talent on every level.”

Hellboy has long been a favorite of mine since I first read his comics many years ago. The whole fascination with his character, where he came from, and the mysterious organization that tracks and investigates paranormal activity called the B.P.R.D. was truly captivating. Several years ago, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (Blade II, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) got to make two Hellboy films, which he had stated was his favorite comic book. He brought Hellboy and the world he lived into to life that displayed all of the charm, magic, wonder, story, and development of each character perfectly. Literally none of those aspects are in this 2019 reboot of the iconic character. Hellboy (2019) is a waste of time, money, and talent on every level.

Film Review: ‘Pompeii’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2014

Ben K., Here….

I love Pompeii. It’s a fascinating place where the past comes to life; where all one imagines of the Roman Empire is made tangible. It’s amazing to walk through ancient homes surrounded by frescoes, mosaics, restaurants, a bathhouse, a grand theater…and one need only look upward to see the cause of both Pompeii’s destruction and preservation. That vast, once fearsome volcano. Still, it is worth but a glance; the city and her ghosts will forever remain the focus of Pompeii. In his latest film, Paul W.S. Anderson gives us the opposite: a cursory glance at the people and the detailed wrath of top-billed Mount Vesuvius.

Hi, Bryan Here…..

We all knew with the success of Sylvester Stallone’sThe Expendables‘ films, that there was eventually going to be a female version. It was only a matter of time. We’ve even talked about it on this site before. Well, we aren’t too far off from some big news regarding this project. Millennium Films chief Avi Lerner, who has released the past ‘Expendable‘ films, is making ‘The ExpendaBelles‘, which again is virtually the same film as Stallone’s, but with females.

‘Expendables 3’ Is Coming to a Theater Near You!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the_expendables_2-wide

If two films weren’t enough, there will be a third movie to laugh at. That’s right, ‘The Expendables 3‘ has a release date of August 15, 2014, which Lionsgate is proud to get behind. And why shouldn’t they be proud, the first two made over $575 million worldwide, which is the biggest franchise for Millennium Films. This time around, Patrick Hughes will be in the director’s chair, which his only feature credit is for a movie called ‘Red Hill‘, so she has his work cut out for him.

The Top 20 Female Badasses In Film/TV!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan and Lisa S. Here…..

9d8c1968aa60cdb4dca86ed6790187e2

 

I had some help writing this article with writer, Lisa S.   Lisa hails from netherworld of the Northwest and is not above watching zombie movies for 24 hours straight.  She loves all kinds of scary movies and is an avid music fan.  You might even find her perusing the used DVD bin at your local movie store looking for old Ernest movies and Sifl and Olly discs.  Lisa helped quite a bit with this article and you can expect her read many more of her articles on this site from this point forward.  Give her a warm welcome and visit her online book and record store HERE.

Now let’s get to the list.  Here are Boomstick’s Top 20 Female Badasses in film and television.  I tried to keep it in the horror/sci-fi genre, but a couple of action star made it in there.  These females are the most hardcore we feel, by how much ass they kick, their courage, and their sex appeal.  We dare you to find better role models and badasses than this.  Enjoy the list.

Bryan Reviews ‘The Three Musketeers’ 3D Blu-Ray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

This version of ‘The Three Musketeers’ is extremely bittersweet for me.  More on the bitter side than the sweet side.  I’m not a fan of the director by any means, but the casting was great.  I love the story of the ‘The Three Musketeers’, and I don’t really think it was done well this time.  However, the actual video and audio quality of the disc is very much demo worthy.  It looks and sounds fantastic.  But other than that, this ‘The Three Musketeers’ is forgettable.

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.

Hi Bryan Here….

Criterion rolls out the red carpet yet again with the re-release of the instant cult classic ‘Dazed and Confused’.  This time it is on glorious blu-ray.  This movie will live on forever.  There really isn’t another movie like it.  The characters, the music, the dialogue are all quoted and duplicated today.  This film started the careers of tons of big named actors including: Parker Posey, Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey, Milla Jovovich, Joey Lauren Adams, and a few others.  This re-release is virtually the same as the previous criterion release, but in blu-ray.  And let me just say, it is worth the upgrade.  The picture and sound are top notch.

Bluray/DVD Picks For The 3rd Week Of February!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.
