Hey guys, Jana here,

neilgaiman1

When Neil Gaiman wants to tell you a story, you stop and listen. Having said that, listen up!

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

You or I couldn’t come up with something this wonderful, but Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett could, and they did. ‘Good Omens‘ is what it’s better known as and it’s gloriously funny in the way only these brilliant writers could be. I’m not sure what emotion I like more, the absolute elation I felt as I read the book, or the giddy joy in finding out that this book has made the long trek to being realized as a series on Amazon Prime!!!

Oh yes, you read that right, and it’s only taken 27 years. What could possibly be better you ask? Neil Gaiman will PERSONALLY be handling the adaptation, writing each script and serving as the showrunner. Amazon Studios and BBC will co-produce what is to be 6 hour-long episodes that will air in 2018. The great thing, for those of us with an Amazon Prime subscription, is that the miniseries will premiere on Amazon Prime video first before it goes to BBC.

Hey guys, Jana here,

good-omens-1

Life and death, witches and demons, the antichrist, angels and secrets surrounding the end of the world. They all have one thing in common, you’ll find all of them in the pages of ‘Good Omens‘ by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. This isn’t a book review, because I’d need way more space and time than you’d be willing to give me, but this IS a flaming awesome announcement about said novel. It’s coming to TV!

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-gods-1

Neil Gaiman is one of those authors that everyone has heard of and most everyone that reads him, likes what they find. I was a little late to the Gaiman party only getting interested in his work in the last few years, the one thing I didn’t read when I began my Gaiman journey was ‘American Gods‘. Oh mon dieu! I corrected the error of my ways after our Editor-in-Chief, Bryan couldn’t believe I hadn’t read it, yet. Ironically, I was putting together an article on books that should be made into film and this was his suggestion.  I spent a weekend with the tome and fell in love and agreement, this book SHOULD have a film counterpart. The universe responded with wish granted.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Neil Gaiman is returning to the Sandman universe with artist J.H.

Hi Bryan Here…..

Has it been 15 years already?  Wow.  BBC is re-releasing one of Neil Gaiman’s celebrated works on DVD for its 15the anniversary.  I am of course talking about Neverwhere.  What is Neverwhere you ask?  Well, if you don’t know, then you need to buck up and get off your ass and go out and read and watch this fantastic story.  Neverwhere is the pretty much unseen darker “nether” world underground London.  This most excellent DVD comes with new extras and surprises for any Neverwhere and Gaiman fan.  It rocked my socks clear off.

Hi Bryan Here…

Neil Gaiman is one master writer and story teller.  I just get so excited, uber fan boy style, when I hear that one of his books is being adapted for the screen.  I’ve been wanting his book, “American Gods” to be adapted for so long now.  It is going TO BE epic.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-15 at 12.42.22 PM

I now know what I’ll be doing at the end of April. I’ll be watching Starz’s new show ‘American Gods‘, which is the adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s book. Bryan Fuller (‘Hannibal‘, ‘Pushing Daisies‘) is the showrunner here with Ian McShane, Kristen Chenoweth, Peter Stormare, Crispin Glover, Pablo Schreiber, Ricky Whittle, and more starring. There are monsters, blood, violence, and Gods here. I can’t wait.

‘The Secret Garden’ is Getting the Remake Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

secretgarden1

Hollywood is now remaking ‘The Secret Garden‘ yet again. I’ll say that the last big film adaptation of the classic family book was back in 1993, so there has been a little bit of time between remakes. David Heyman and Studio Canal are set to produce the film, which Heyman is mostly known for producing all of the ‘Harry Potter‘ films. The studio has hired Jack Thorne to write the screenplay.

Hey guys, Jana here,

bryan-fuller

Bryan Fuller is a name known for such shows as ‘Hannibal‘ and ‘Pushing Daisies‘, but if you go a little further into Fuller’s past, you’ll find a sci-fi fan first and foremost. In fact, Fuller became a writer with the hopes of writing for Gene Roddenberry’s juggernaut that is the ‘Star Trek‘ universe. He achieved that goal and began his writing career writing for ‘Star Trek: Voyager‘ and ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘. Now he’s back where it all started, taking on the mantle of showrunner and co-creator of the new Trek series coming from CBS.

Ten Great Lesser-Known Films Starring Big Name Actors!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

Green_street_hooligans

You might find yourself reading the following list, thinking “Hey! I’ve seen all these movies! How dare you claim them to be ‘lesser-known’!” My response to you, should you say such a thing, is “congratulations.” You see, just because you are a film nut like me, doesn’t mean that the rest of the populace is. The following is a list of ten good films with big-named actors that somehow slipped under the general radar. I’m not saying they are completely unknown, but based upon ticket sales, it certainly seems like they slipped the notice of the general public. These are all solid films that, should you enjoy these actors, you definitely want to check them out (the films, not the actors – although to each their own, I guess).

NBC Drops The Axe on TV’s ‘Hannibal’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 23rd, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

Hannibal-Cast-Promotional-Photos-hannibal-tv-series-33869744-600-449

It looks like NBC is only going to let us get so close to the fictional serial killer, Hannibal Lecter as they’ve canceled Bryan Fuller’s ‘Silence of the Lambs’ prequel, ‘Hannibal‘ after only three seasons. The current season will run its full 13-episode course in the same time slot concluding on August 27. The reason why isn’t merely based on flagging viewer numbers, though, as most shows given the guillotine are guilty of, it’s a rights issue.

Dario Argento and Iggy Pop Are Making a Movie Together!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

20140926033300-THE_SANDMAN_POSTER

Good news, everyone. The iconic Italian horror filmmaker Dario Argento (Suspiria) and legendary musician Iggy Pop have teamed up and launched a crowdfunding campaign for their new film ‘The Sandman‘. This has no relation to the Neil Gaiman story. Producers, Argento and Iggy are looking to raise $250,000 on the Indiegogo website. The campaign just launched so they are nowhere near their goal, but this looks like it will be one of Argento’s most interesting projects.

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 15th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Childhood is a trying time, and the endearing hero of “ParaNorman” has more trials than most. A father who doesn’t understand him, a sister who finds him annoying, a bully who loves to pick on him, and a town full of ghosts that only he can see, Norman has quite a few troubles on his slight shoulders. But as others begin to open their eyes to his abilities and Norman learns the value of trusting those around him, ParaNorman delivers some great lessons while treating its audience to laughter and suspense.

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.
