Oct/2019

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix’sBlack Mirror‘ debuted way back in 2011. A more innocent time because we didn’t have deep, lurking fears about technology and how it could do anything but improve our daily life. Then came Charlie Brooker and the anthology series that has forced me, at least, to cover all the cameras on my devices with tape or sticky tack. Coming back for it’s fourth season, we’ve got a little, and I do mean little, information on the next six episodes.

Film Review: ‘[Bad Times at the El Royale]’!!

by Janet White on Oct 15th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Slam, shuffle, shuffle, creak, shuffle, and plop. Bad Times at the El Royale skillfully opens with a sensory experience and a blank screen effectively peaking audience’s curiosity (Good job Sound team!). Felix (Nick Offerman) frantically hid a secret and, as expected, was murdered. Fast-forward roughly 15 years; Darlene Sweet (Cynthia Erivo) and Father Daniel Flynn (Jeff Bridges) meet literally on the state line between Nevada and California, which is straddled by the El Royale. The meeting was apprehensive yet playful. Rounding out the known inhabitants of the hotel are Laramie Seymour Sullivan (Jon Hamm), a traveling vacuum salesman; Miles Miller (Lewis Pullman), the front desk clerk; and Emily Summerspring (Dakota Johnson), a mysterious wildcat with sharp claws. Everyone in burdened by a secret, which adds to the mysterious, dangerous air of the El Royale. Soon they will find out what lurks within its walls. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: The Hunter’s Prayer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Dan M., here….

the-hunters-prayer-trailer-one-001

The Hunter’s Prayer is the best network TV pilot for a show that will run out of ideas and suck by season 2 that I’ve seen in awhile. It’s full of clichés, caricatures, and familiar twists for any thriller genre. If someone took Taken, The Professional, Cobra, Jack Reacher, & Jason Bourne (the bad one), put them in a blender, and then strained it to remove all the good healthy stuff from those movies, you’d have The Hunter’s Prayer. All that said, I didn’t check my phone during it, so I guess I’m the sucker.

Jana B. here,

John Ridley

When Hollywood hands you an Academy Award for writing, especially if the film you wrote won an Oscar for Best Picture, you get your pick of jobs after that. So it seems to go for John Ridley, he authored the script for ‘12 Years A Slave‘ and basked in some well-deserved glory last night.  It was announced today that Ridley is going to write a drama for a new ABC series, ‘American Crime‘.

Film Review: ‘Kill Your Darlings’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 KYD

Over the past couple of years, we have had a string of films based on the Beat Poet generation that spawned writers and poets Allen Ginsberg, William Burroughs, and Jack Kerouac. Some have been documentaries, some have been narratives on their successful careers, but none have covered the in depth time period where all of these writers met in college and were part of a murder. First time feature filmmaker John Krokidas knocks it out of the park with his jazzy, drug induced opus that is called ‘Kill Your Darlings‘.

Kim L. Here….

 FRUITVALE

The first word that comes to my mind about this movie is… Heart.  Based on a true story of Oscar Grant, the 22 year old that was murdered by a police officer in the early hours of New Year’s Day in 2009 at the Fruitvale BART Station in the Bay Area of California, the story follows Oscar, played by Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights) on the last day of his life and shows the ups and downs he faced as a young man and father trying to do the right thing.

Film Review: ‘West of Memphis’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

west-of-memphis-documentary

I’ve been following this case ever since HBO aired the first ‘Paradise Lost‘ film in 1996. I was 15 then, and at the age, I was outraged and angry at how the justice system was working in Arkansas. I couldn’t believe that these people could convict three innocent young men with no evidence to life in prison, with one receiving the death penalty. Needless to say, over the years, i have researched and tried to help any way that I could to this case by sending emails and letters and really anything I could do in my power to help free the West Memphis 3. And fortunately, there were two more sequels done by the original team who made ‘Paradise Lost‘, which shed new light on the convictions. However, now, director Amy Berg delivers ‘West of Memphis‘ with the help of Peter Jackson and Fran Walsh, which offers many new insights and interviews for the audience who have followed this case from the beginning, while letting newcomers in easily.  It’s one of the better documentaries ever made.

Got a late start on this column due to screenings and being on a short vacation, which was AMAZING.  But alas, the weekly column you all look forward to is out.  Sorry for the delay.  Quite a bit of great titles this week including Indiana Jones on bluray.    As usual in this article, 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 picture-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 bizarre tales. So click on the pictures and start saving.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!
