Film Review: ‘The Founder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Beka P., here….

As a lawyer, one of the first things they teach you is to always put things in writing. As a criminal lawyer, one of the first things I tell people is never put things in writing. ‘The Founder‘ is a lesson in contracts and how as Roy Kroc says, “Contracts are like hearts, they were made to be broken.” This film explores the story of how McDonalds became more than just a local burger joint- exploding onto the map as a nationwide franchise. Quite honestly, it was darker than I expected, and cast a bit of a cloud on the French fried potato goodness that is Micky D’s, but I suppose that when you pull back the curtain and expose the inner workings of any organization, you are bound to find a few skeletons in the closet.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Film Review: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 18th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

me-earl-dying-girl-1

There are very few times in life where a movie affects you in such a way that you end up recalling the entire film from time to time in life. One of those films for me is ‘E.T.‘, as I saw the movie with my parents in theaters back in the early 80s when it was released. That film really struck a chord with me as it was the first time I really connected with a character and a film. It led to all the emotions pouring out of me, and still does to this day even when I watch it for the 1,134th time. Only a handful of movies have done that to me since then, one of them being this beautiful and charming movie, ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘.

Film Review: ‘Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl’!

The cliché that a person is never truly gone from this earth if they live on in your heart is played out beautifully in a really non-clichéd way in Me, Earl and The Dying Girl.  This film tackles a lot of topics in a seemingly effortless manner: death and dying, parent/child relationships, friendship, how to survive high school, self doubt, and growing up.

Season 2 of ‘Fargo‘ is gearing up to start filming soon for FX, and rest assured, I can’t wait. The first season, which was based on The Coen Bros. Oscar winning film in the 90s was excellent. The first season starred Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thorton, Colin Hanks, and Allison Tolman.

Believ Me Movie

Where does your hope lie?  In mankind?  The government?  Your possessions?  Your faith?  What motivates a person to do something, give their time or money, or fight for what they want?  Believe Me explores these questions through the hilarious antics of a quartet of college boys.

Film Review: ‘Believe Me’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Believe_Me_Film_Poster

There’s a fine line between clever satire and biting criticism. Too often, people cross that line inadvertently and thus alienate those they are attempting to speak to. The task of walking that fine line becomes even more difficult when the subject matter is something as popular (and polarizing) as Christianity. Believe Me takes a satirical look at evangelism while simultaneously holding fast to ideals popular among that same target audience.

Film Review: ’22 Jump Street’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

The movie theater chains across America are plagued with sequels, reboots, and remakes these days. It seems like almost every film out there is either a sequel or a remake of an older film, leaving the original indie films left out to dry for the more independent theaters or video-on-demand. While you want these sequels and remakes to be just as good as the original or first film, most of them fall a little short, or are down right terrible. There are only a select few sequels that receive the praise and box office power that have audiences across the globe cheering its name. And I’m happy to report that ‘22 Jump Street‘ falls into that category, maybe even being towards the top of that list.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The upcoming ‘Lego Movie‘ looks Incredible and hilarious. I didn’t expect it to be this good, but man, after watching this trailer, I cannot wait to see this. Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Colbie Smolders, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson, and Charlie Day are just some of the few talented actors lending their voices to this movie. And man, it looks funny.

Kim L. Takes A Trip With ‘We’re The Millers’!!

I think this is one of the funniest films this year.  Jason Sudeikis and Jennifer Aniston have great on screen chemistry and to add Emma Roberts and Will Poulter makes for a really fun time at the movies. Jason plays David Clark a small time drug dealer that gets robbed trying to help out Will’s character Kenny who is defending Casey played by Emma Roberts.
