4K UHD Review: ‘The Commuter’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

SOMEONE PLEASE STOP TAKING LIAM NEESON’S FAMILY!!! Ok, so maybe ‘The Commuter‘ isn’t so much about having his family ‘Taken’, but they get threatened to get taken, and that’s close enough.

So “The Commuter” is here simply to prove that Liam Neeson is still an action hero, and to be fair, he is probably our best action hero.  At age 65, he’s doing stuff that Tom Cruise wishes he could have done in his 30’s.  Actually, this felt like a role that was written for Tom Cruise until someone realized that Tom Cruise is box office poison but everyone loves Liam Neeson probably because of Love Actually.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix is putting together another feature that will only bolster their stronghold on original programming. ‘Mute‘ is going to fit right into their stable as an original, futuristic thriller. Filmmaker Duncan Jones (‘Warcraft: The Beginning‘) is crafting a whole new universe in which to tell this mind-bending story.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Ninja III: The Domination’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2018

THE FILM


Back in 1984, the world was given a movie by the name of ‘Ninja III: The Domination‘, which was the third film in a trilogy. If you were to go back and watch all three Ninja films, you’d be hard pressed to find a similar tone or continuity throughout each of them, minus a small ninja aspect. After the first two ‘Ninja‘ films, it was time to throw everything in the bag, including the kitchen sink, which eventually became ‘Ninja III: The Domination‘. The movie plays out like Hunter S. Thompson wrote it over a drug-induced bender in Vegas, but only had a few dollars to make the film that is a mix between ‘Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo‘, a horror film, and the wackiest Kung-Fu movie this side of the Mississippi. In fact, the star and director of ‘Breakin 2: Electric Boogaloo‘ also star and direct ‘Ninja III‘, which makes perfect sense when you think about it. This is a film that I imagine had fantastic intentions and thought it was going to be the biggest blockbuster ever made, but the results gave us something much more. It gave us a movie that was so beyond weird and insane, that cult audiences around the world fell in love with it and keep it alive still to this day.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Disaster Artist’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

By now you must know about the “The Room.”  If by some chance you don’t know what it is, I would highly recommend viewing before watching “The Disaster Artist,” although it is by no means required.  Just as a cliff’s note, “The Room” is a cult film known as the best worst movie ever made.  It’s a melodramatic poorly acted mess, but it has hit a chord with enough people to gain midnight movie status, along with audience participation a-la Rocky Horror Picture Show.  It is a beast all of its own and it has drawn the love from college stoners to A list actors alike.  Naturally, in the center of the Venn Diagram of these fanbases, lies James Franco.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Stronger’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2017

THE FILM


The Boston Marathon Bombing was a horrific tragedy that only happened a few years ago, where a bomb went off at the finish line of the big marathon. People died and even more were injured. Amongst those injured was a young guy named Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs at that bombing. We’ve seen a number of films that have dealt with terroristic attacks that involve elite military teams or big action sequences. Other films might tackle a group of police officers or a group of people who have to deal with this attack. That’s not the case with this fantastic and melancholy film called ‘Stronger‘.

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.

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Film Review: ‘[Transformers: The Last Knight]’

by Janet White on Jun 28th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Transformers The Last Knight - Prime

 

Exploding onto our screens without regard for the narrative or progressive plot structure, comes Transformers: The Last Knight.  True Michael Bay lovers could care less or would even notice the story’s lack of cohesion with this sequel.  They are there for the cool special effects, radical cinematography, and rich hues that make up Michael Bay’s style.

Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Trailer is HERE!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-11 at 11.15.09 PM

I think we can all say that Edgar Wright is the coolest filmmaker that ever lived. Wright gave us ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World‘, ‘The World’s End‘ and much more! Filmmakers can go their whole careers and never come close to making a film as fun or as good as any of these. Oh it’s true. It’s damn true. Luckily for us, Wright has been hard at work on his latest film, which is called ‘Baby Driver‘, and it finally has a trailer.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Moana’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 9th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

616wPom8RSL

THE FILM

Moana‘ is the latest animated film from Disney, releasing a few months after their big hit ‘Zootopia’. No matter what film Disney releases, the usual messages and tone are consistent in every film. However, Disney magically manages to make each film feel very fresh, unique, and original with excellent characters, animation, and story lines that not only captivate me with each film, but to the masses as well. ‘Moana’ is no different here, as it looks visually stunning, as well as have an top notch story with excellent voice talent and songs.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Pinocchio’ Signature Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

518h+RpAlGL

THE FILM

Pinocchio‘ is hands down one of the best films ever made. And it was made by Walt Disney more than 70 years ago in animated form. That’s no joke. On the surface, ‘Pinocchio‘ seems to be about a wooden toy who wants to be a real boy, but right below the surface, there is so much going on, that I cant help but think that Walt himself and his collaborators had many more things to say with this film, which is to say the least, very different than most Disney movies out there – even today.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Space Jam’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

91c84elzkol-_sl1500_

THE FILM

If you grew up in the 1980s and 1990s, you probably had a Michael Jordan poster, trading card, sneaker, or action figure of one of the greatest athletes and basketball players to have ever lived. The man defied gravity, broke barriers, and even danced with Michael Jackson. Jordan “retired” from basketball to give the MLB a shot, but shortly returned to the NBA soon after that. In his hiatus from the NBA, Michael Jordan got his own film with Warner Bros. with ‘Space Jam‘, where he would star alongside the Looney Tunes in a family adventure.

Film Review: ‘The Girl on the Train’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

68fbb8f3-27e3-4a97-bda7-d9b8d2a05ee4

I can certainly see the appeal of Paula Hawkins’ first successful novel ‘The Girl on the Train‘, which was released in 2015, and was fast-tracked and optioned into a major motion picture by Universal Pictures to come out this weekend. It has some deeply dark and layered characters and tackles a range of emotions and vices from alcoholism, abuse, and even a murder. It’s a good story with a who-done-it angle that feels fresh and original. The problem here is that the film felt a bit rushed and lazy, which gave way to the very slow burn the film has and never quite stays on point with its many flashbacks and timing, often times showing the same scene several times. It just got tedious and redundant twenty minutes in and never stopped being overly dramatic with longing stares, tears, and silence.

Film Review: ‘The Legend of Tarzan’!!

by Janet White on Jun 30th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

Tarzan - Brothers

Every woman loves the strong and silent type, yes? Well, I say only for a while. Women are more than their looks and I’d say the same in regards to men. Both sides have bad apples, but on the whole, our actions and words are as integral to who we are as our appearance. Yet in The Legend of Tarzan’s portrayal of Tarzan, silence dominates and makes this King of Beasts a robot, not just mute, but cold and detached for the majority of the film. They should have subtitled the film, “A Man of Few Words”, because The Legend of Tarzan, starring Alexander Skarsgård as Tarzan/Lord John Clayton was just that.

Film Review: ‘Hello, My Name is Doris’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 17th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

287907

I didn’t know a whole lot about ‘Hello, my Name is Doris‘, other than that Sally Field was starring in the film as true genuine free spirit of sorts, but when the director’s name flashed on the screen in the opening credits, I knew immediately I was in for a real treat. That director is Michael Showalter, who you might remember from ‘Wet Hot American Summer‘, ‘Stella‘, or ‘The Baxter‘, which was his last big directorial feature film some eleven years ago. ‘Hello, My Name is Doris‘ walks a fine line between the comedy and dramatic realm, but Showalter’s screenplay and directorial effort walks the line quite well, mixing some genuine and silly comedy with some intense dramatic moments.

Film Review: ‘Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 20th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

kahlil-gibran-the-prophet

Cartoons are often split into two categories: those for children, and those for adults. On the one hand, you have Disney classics, and on the other you have most anime. The two types have very distinct target demographics, and filmmakers gear their films to appeal to these specifics. On very rare occasion, you’ll get a film like Disney’s Fantasia that combines the two so beautifully that it appeals to both demographics. Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, attempts this same feat with admirable gusto, falling just short of success.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The People Under The Stairs’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

thepeople1

THE FILM

I remember first seeing Wes Craven’sThe People Under The Stairs‘ on my television at home, when I rented it on VHS at the local video store, back when they had movie rental locations in the early 90s. I had already seen ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street‘ and knew who Craven was at that point, and I knew I had to see his new film. I instantly loved it, as it followed a kid my age in the film. I thought it was quite funny and scary all at the same time as Craven perfectly balanced the two genres here. It also did quite well in theaters, making over $31 million dollars on a $6 million dollar budget, and went on to become one of the cult classics we still love and cherish on television today.

Insurgent, the sequel to the popular young adult trilogy-turned-film-series, takes place immediately following the events of Divergent. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), are on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), who is hunting the Divergents. This action/adventure/science fiction-thriller failed to perform, but was at least pretty to watch. Insurgent would be far more enjoyable if viewed on “mute”.

Blu-ray Review: ‘101 Dalmatians’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

61LcbbHAp-L

THE FILM

If it weren’t for ‘101 Dalmatians‘, we might not have had any more Disney animated films, including ‘The Lion King‘ or even ‘Wreck it Ralph‘. Back in 1959, ‘Sleeping Beauty‘ failed to live up to expectations and didn’t make enough money for Disney to do another project. In fact, it got so bad at Disney, that people were being let go and the studio doors were on the verge of being shut for good. Can you imagine that? No more Disney animated films after 1959? I know I can’t.

THE FILM

Dragonwolf‘ is a typical martial arts film in a lot of ways. If you want something slightly entertaining with fight scenes, this will do nicely. If you’re hell-bent on seeing quality fights, pick up a Bruce Lee flick. Watching this made me so sad though, I really wanted to like this. The finished product doesn’t even deserve an entry to my ‘Eh’ category. You know what I mean, “Hey ‘Dragonwolf‘ is on, wanna watch it?” “Eh, why not?”

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

I admit, I’m a suck for werewolf films. Ever since I was shown 1941’s ‘Wolf-Man‘ when I was very little by my dad, I knew that I would be hooked on werewolves for life. Then I watched Michael Jackson’sThriller‘ video and ‘An American Werewolf in London‘ soon after that, while all under the age of eight. Needless to say, these werewolf films have had a profound effect on me, and might be the igniting reason why I love the horror genre so much. When I was in college, I came across a film called ‘Ginger Snaps‘, which was only released in Canada at the time, and being a big movie buff, I had to get my hands on any film that wasn’t being released in the U.S. yet.

Some animated films stay with you, like Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Lion King, How to Train Your Dragon, and Shrek. There are some that you really enjoy and recommend to friends, for example The Lego Movie, Despicable Me, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Iron Giant. And then, there are those that you see that you think will only be good for people with kids because they have catchy songs and flashy colors, but not much else.

Director David Gordon Green has had quite an impressive resume over the last ten years, and this being 2014, Green is showing no signs of weakening or bowing down to the execs of Hollywood any time soon. Green’s resume includes ‘Pineapple Express‘, ‘Eastbound and Down‘, ‘Your Highness‘, and the more recent drama ‘Prince Avalanche‘. He also produced the gritty thriller ‘Compliance‘. Green seemed to step away from the likes of Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, and Danny McBride, and made an unrelenting yet beautiful movie with ‘Joe‘, which is based on a novel by Larry Brown of the same name from 1991.

Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman franchise ranks as the best film in the series.  That’s difficult for me to say, as the first two films were so amazing.  Even with Heath Ledger’s iconic and eternal role as the Joker in the previous film, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ far surpasses anything my imagination could have hoped for in film.  Movies do not get better than ’The Dark Knight Rises’.

Bugs Bunny Takes Over the Dallas Symphony Orchestra!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 7th, 2012

Claire, Here….

Last night, a new instrument accompanied the regular menagerie of Dallas Symphony Orchestral musicians as they performed the musical accompaniment to Looney Tunes. It was the intermittent, but well punctuated chorus of children’s laughter coming from the audience that made this performance timeless. The audience’s participation and audible reaction to the performance allowed us to connect intimately with the performers, and together, we created something greater than the sum of us combined. It was a worthy homage to the iconic works of Chuck Jones.

Bryan’s ‘Flareup’ DVD Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Racquel Welch is a goddess. In ‘Flareup’, you can see why Welch was a leading lady in so many films.  She was a sex symbol and a surprisingly very funny and gifted comedy actress.  It’s very easy to watch Welch on screen and become hypnotized by her beauty, that you completely forget the title of the film you are watching.  Then you snap out of it and think, “WOW, this movie and Welch were amazing.”  This film does exactly that.  Sadly, ‘Flareup’ was one of those long lost forgotten films, that most of you never heard of.  And thank the geniuses over at the Warner Archive collection for finally releasing this on DVD.

Firstly, I just want to point out that I enjoy British comedy.  It just has such a different feel than most of what we get on this side of the pond.  So, when I got my hands on this, I was understandably pretty excited despite not knowing anything about the film.  After reading the back of the case and watching the trailer (included on the title screen of the DVD) I was even more excited, it just sounded so absurd!  And… it was.

BRIDGE – Chapter Nineteen

by Justin Cline on Apr 25th, 2012

CHAPTER NINETEEN

By the eighth Mississippi, Bridge had his map back in hand and a good idea of where he was headed.  It must have been a long walk from the cemetery to The Bethany for a man who’d been forced to vacate his own grave, but in the van it was a short ride from their current location to the outskirts of the city.  The hope in making the trip was to find something—anything—at the gravesite that would point him forward in the investigation.  Between himself and the cat, they had killed off all other viable leads.

Bryan Reviews ‘Gia’ Bluray!!! (A Bluray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 24th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here…..

I can’t believe ‘Gia’ is almost 15 years old.  Angelina Jolie plays to perfection real life Gia Carangi, a girl next door type who works at her family’s diner and then virtually over night is whisked away to become an international super model.  The movie is very solid, due to Jolie’s performance.  This is a story you have heard many times sadly, and HBO brings us this true story in high def.  Jolie’s performance definitely carries this movie.

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Infernal Affairs’ is amazing.  This was the original ‘Departed’ film that Scorsese made.  ‘Infernal Affairs’ was made in 2002 with ‘The Departed’  being made in 2006.  Scorsese must have seen this movie when it came out and quickly wanted to make an American version.  And that’s exactly what he did.  ‘Infernal Affairs’ is exactly what ‘The Departed is, but made in Hong Kong.  It has a lot of the same scenes, characters, and plot lines.  And this bluray release is quite good.  If you are a fan of ‘The Departed’, then ‘Infernal Affairs’ is a film you will love.
