Blu-ray Review: The Glass Castle!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE FILM


You probably have heard the name Jeannette Walls. She is a journalist that was known for her Gossip column for MSNBC, but she is now known world-wide for her amazing novel ‘The Glass Castle‘, which was a memoir about her life growing up with her dysfunctional family. Her novel stayed on the Best Seller list for 261 weeks. If you think about that’s about four years and yes, it’s that good. Of course, Hollywood made a movie about it, which was directed by the amazing Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and starred Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Film Review: ‘Rings’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

the-ring-the-ring-33255133-853-480

I went back and streamed The Ring to make sure I remembered what the movie was about. Before I started it, I remember that this was a top 10 hand-holding movie back in high school when it came out. I obviously knew that some ghost girl who died in a well would come out a TV and kill anyone who watched a VHS tape. After catching up 15 years later, I can confirm that I have a photographic memory and the entire movie is about watching a tape that sends a creepy girl through the TV to kill you. That girl is named Samara and she is still creepy to look at. Horror movies are such a weird creature because they often contain some really great conflicts. The way to save yourself from being murdered through your TV is to make a copy of the tape and send it on to someone else. The internal conflict of that was actually explored pretty well in the first Ring movie. I was hoping this would be explored more in RINGS so I headed off to the theater.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

For you ‘Divergent‘ fans, here is a new trailer for the third film in the series ‘Allegiant‘. I have not been a fan of these movies, but I know a lot of you are. The new trailer promises more action and melodrama, but in the past films, they never deliver to full satisfaction. Here’s hoping for a better film with the third one.

Film Review: ‘Insurgent’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2015

Taylor E., Here…

640_insurgent_trailer_20141212

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”.

Film Review: ‘Birdman’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

and-the-oscar-goes-to-could-birdman-be-the-first-superhero-movie-nominated-for-best-picture

It’s a very rare occurrence where a film changes the game on almost every aspect of filmmaking. From acting to camerawork, ‘Birdman‘ literally soars above the rest where fierce emotions of erratic actors are put on display in a chaotic yet darkly comedic setting inside the St. James Theatre on West 44th Street in Manhattan. Not only do these actors turn in Oscar-worthy performances of the highest order, but director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Amores Perros) and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki have given us an image so fresh and that pushes the bounds, that this is one of the most pleasing films of the year, visually speaking and unlike anything you might have seen before. Lubezki has worked with Alfonso Cauron on ‘Children of Men‘ and the recent film ‘Gravity‘.

Film Review: ‘St. Vincent’!!

Hillary T., Here…

St Vincent Movie

Bill Murray is known for picking unique and out there roles. From what I understand, this role chose him. It’s so perfectly played, that it’s hard to put into words all of the thoughts and feelings I have for this movie.

Michael Keaton in ‘Birdman’ Is AWESOME!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

image001_(4)

Michael Keaton is one of the best actors of the last century and was completely robbed of an Oscar for his role as ‘Beetlejuice‘. He’s proved countless times that his talent knows no bounds. His new film is called ‘Birdman‘ and looks all sorts of awesome. In the film, Keaton plays an actor who is famous for playing a superhero. He is now trying to book a gig on Broadway. In the days leading up to opening night, he battles his ego as this superhero to get back his sanity, career, and family.

Hi, Bryan Here….

brad_pitt_world_war_z_movie-1920x1080

We all knew that we were getting a sequel to the zombie smash hit ‘World War Z‘, since the first film made over $540 million dollars. There is much more to tell in that whole universe, which was though up by Mel Brooks‘ son, Max Brooks, who wrote the book. The first film was directed by Marc Forster and starred Brad Pitt, but now the studio has chosen a different director, which is Juan Antonio Bayona.

Film Review: ‘Diana’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2013

Black Mariah, Here….

naomi-watts-princess-diana-ftr

The new movie, Diana, releases in theaters today.  The feature length film, starring Naomi Watts as the Princess of Wales, focuses on Diana’s romantic life after separating from Prince Charles. No matter how much you already know about Diana’s post royal love life, the movie Diana will take you on a journey oddly devoid of steamy love scenes and any convincing chemistry between the characters. Steamy love scenes are to be expected in a film based on a love affair, yes?  The story was already there; Diana and Hasnat, a real life Romeo and Juliet, complete with meddling families, two lovers who just can’t seem to seal the deal, and tragic death!  Somehow this movie managed to miss the mark, unless that mark was to make a dry romantic comedy.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

The Oscar Nominations Are In!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

oscar_statues-4_3_r560

Earlier this morning, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the Oscar nominations, which MacFarlane came across as pretty funny.  I’m excited for him to host the Oscars this year.  And, his film ‘Ted‘ actually got nominated. How cool is that?  Below is the full list of Oscar nominations.  Let us know what you think.  We will be posting a separate article soon on Oscar snubs, because believe me, there are many.  And don’t forget, we will be doing our annual LIVE OSCAR COMMENTARY, which will mark the 6th time we have done it.  It promises tons of laughs.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I first heard about this film earlier this year when Gerard Butler told me that he was going to play a foul-mouthed leprechaun, and that one of his lines was, “I’m going to crawl up your mother’s cunt and start a fire.”  That instantly put this film at the top of my list.  This film has about a dozen writers and a dozen directors, and looks to be a sort sketch comedy film, but who knows? I can’t tell what this will be about.  But one thing is for sure, it looks fucking hilarious and has an AMAZING cast including, Sean William Scott, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Christopher Mintz Plasse (McLovin), Chloe Moretz, Liev Shreiber, Terrence Howard, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Banks, Hugh Jackman, Kristen Bell, Emma Stone, Anna Faris, Richard Gere, Parick Warburton, Justin Long, Uma Thurman, Kate Bosworth, Kieran Culkin, Jack McBrayer, and much much more.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. Films announced include titles in the Galas and Special Presentations programmes. The announced films include 17 Galas and 45 Special Presentations, including 38 world premieres.
