Nov/2017
If you find yourself in Canada, specifically in Toronto, you’re gonna want to check out the a horror film festival called ‘BITS’ or Blood In The Snow. This is the 6th year of the festival and looks to bring the horror and holidays to one place. Below is a list of all the films that will be shown. I’m looking forward to this, because what’s better than blood and Christmas trees?

Film Review: ‘Certain Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2016

Violet O, here…

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-5-40-54-pm

Certain Women‘ opened on a very long, mostly silent, incredibly slow scene of a train traveling the countryside. Unfortunately, this proved to be the pace of action and level of excitement throughout the entire 107min film. This movie attempts to tell three completely unrelated stories of three different women (Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Lily Gladstone) living in rural Montana. The only commonality that I could find between these stories is their lack of direction and level of awkwardness.

‘Green Room’ Blu-ray Announced and Detailed!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

91LSukBM25L._SL1500_

Green Room‘ was my favorite film from 2015’s ‘Fantastic Fest‘. You don’t get much better than Patrick Stewart as a bad neo-nazi, trying to kill a punk rock band. Not only that, you have the ‘Blue Ruin‘ guys Jeremy Saulnier and Macon Blair on top of this film as well. It’s in theaters now, and I highly recommend you go and see it. Lionsgate has just announced the Blu-ray too, which will release on July 12th with some cool extras. Below is the information.

13-Hours-Book-Cover

 

As Americans there are moments that made time stand still for our country. The attacks on September 11, 2001 crippled our spirits with the biggest sucker punch in history, and the attack on the American diplomatic compound and the nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya on the 11th anniversary of that horrid event, ripped that scar wide open. Some may see a film based on the events of that fateful night as a crass money-maker, I see the film as a remembrance and a warning to the future to never let this happen again.

Film Review: ‘Woman in Gold’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 31st, 2015

Janet W., Here…

WOMAN IN GOLD

The Piano.  Schindler’s List. I have seen films about the Holocaust and the invasion of countries by the Nazi regime.  Along comes Woman in Gold a true story about one woman’s fight against Nazi-sympathizing Austria.  Mrs. Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) loses her sister and within her sister’s belongings finds a postcard of Gustav Klimt’sWoman in Gold” painting.  Shortly after this find, Austria announces their intent to restore stolen artwork to their rightful owners namely the Jewish families who were robbed by the Nazis when they invaded Austria.  Randy (Ryan Reynolds) is a down on his luck attorney who failed at his solo practice.

Who would have thought that the unassuming red envelopes peppering the post would prove such a force with a crippling bite, but Netflix has proven time and again why streaming services are here to stay, not only stay, but compete with big theaters. In the past we’ve seen sequels go straight to the VOD service, we’ve seen original series go the same and we’re seeing original films, first run releases sign with them for distribution rights. The streamer has one more mark to add to it’s tally with ‘Beasts Of No Nation‘.

Hello ladies! Look at your man, now back to me – whoops, sorry about that. As you know, it’s Valentine’s Day once again. And as this overly-commercialized excuse for a holiday rears its ugly head, we take a reflective look back at our lives and at the choices we’ve made concerning our relationships. Some of you will realize that maybe the gap-toothed ex-con biker named “Bubba” might not have been the best choice for a mate (“but he’s a real sweetheart once you get to know him!”). Unfortunately, now you’re “in like Flynn” with his whole clique, and before you know it, you’re drinking homemade moonshine with the rest of his recently released buddies in the middle of backwoods nowhere (if you hear banjos – run). That isn’t to say that everyone makes bad decisions. Some women seem to have a gift for finding the right people to surround themselves with – or have a real knack for how to handle the bad apples that come along – and that can make all the difference between a smooth sailing adventure and a total train wreck experience.

I can’t believe April is almost here again. It just seemed like two weeks ago we were knee deep in 2014’s Dallas Film Festival, which had some excellent films showcased. But that time of the year is just about to begin and the good folks over at the Dallas Film Festival have announced the first 10 films that will show at the festival. Also, it looks like the fest will be honoring the excellent filmmaker John Landis as well, which is all sorts of cool.

Martin Scorsese is one of my favorite directors, if he attaches his name to a project, I watch it, even if I’m not interested in the subject matter, that he hasn’t led me wrong, yet. This unashamed love of his work is why one of my favorite films EVER is ‘The Departed‘. The mob, action, Boston and even including ‘Dropkick Murphys‘ on the soundtrack – that movie was an across the board win for me. So you can understand where I’m coming from when I see the famed director set to exec produce an authorized documentary on one of the most iconic bands of the 60’s, ‘The Grateful Dead‘. Excitement ensues.

Film Review: “Dracula Untold”!!

by Woozie on Oct 9th, 2014

Hi, Suzanne here…

Luke-Evans-in-Dracula-Untold

We all know the basic story of Count Dracula as told by Bram Stoker, but in Dracula Untold, director Gary Shore aims to provide further insight into the reasons a man would choose to be evil. In spite of the big budget that went into creating this film, the movie falls short of that goal and even the scare we come to expect from vampire films.

The New York Film Festival is one of the highlights in the festival circuit. It’s an excellent place for a filmmaker to get a lot of exposure. Writer-Director Paul Thomas Anderson has landed the big centerpiece gala for the third time with ‘Inherent Vice‘, Anderson achieved the same trophy position with ‘Boogie Nights‘ and ‘Punch-Drunk Love‘. Many filmmakers use the festival circuit to promote new film and Anderson is no stranger to the scene. ‘The Master‘ was viewed only a handful of times in the US before it’s competition appearance at Venice in 2012 and ‘There Will Be Blood‘ world-premiered at Fantastic Fest in 2007.

It’s getting on into the summer months and it’s been a great one, so far. It has not been that great for my beloved Boston Red Sox though. Right now, we’re last in the AL standings. It’s shameful, really. New York is ahead of us, heck ALL of the AL is ahead of us. I’m not panicking though. The Sox are a rally team, they are intrepid, they WILL see October play time, I just KNOW it!

Film Review: ‘For No Good Reason’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 14th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

for-no-good-reason640

One of the most recognized artists of a generation whose artwork has sparked debate, protests, and change is still very alive and well. Coming across as the horror version of Michelangelo, Ralph Steadman is still producing great artwork and has allowed a husband-wife producer/director team to film a documentary on his life and art. Steadman is now 77 years old and lives with his family in a nice villa in the countryside of England where his fellow friend Johnny Depp came over and played the role of interviewer during this 80 minute well-edited documentary.
