Oprah Winfrey Supports MLK Biopic!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 28th, 2014

Jana B. here,

Martin Luther King

Think of all the biopics we’ve seen to date. Look at who they are about. Joan Crawford, Kennedy, Lincoln, Al Capone, Tina Turner, Ty Cobb, Lane Frost…the list is vast. There are a few personalities that get bio treatments from several people and others that have yet to be immortalized in film. We’re looking at a big screen, no-holds-barred Martin Luther King Jr. feature. Paramount is in final negotiations to acquire domestic distribution rights to ‘Selma‘, a feature drama about Martin Luther King’s 1965 landmark voting rights campaign regarded as the peak of the civil rights movement.

That is a freaking mouthful for the title of one book.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Wrinkle In Time’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein!)

I really wanted to like A Wrinkle in Time more than I did. I gave it my best shot, but in the end, the only thing I can honestly say was that it had lots of great colors. Perhaps it was my high expectations for a Disney film, plus Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling that set me up for disappointment, but regardless, I was left feeling let down in a film that I knew practically nothing about. I have never read the 1962 Madeleine L’Engle novel, so I honestly had no clue what the plot was but whatever, it’s Disney, it’s gonna be good. Well…

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Film Review: ‘Selma’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

se

It’s no doubt that Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most influential people in the world. He fought for basic human rights, received a Nobel Peace Prize, and not only changed a nation for good, but changed the world. This film is not necessarily a biopic on iconic man, but rather a glimpse on a short period of time that focuses on the 1965 voting marches from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama, that was to ensure that anyone, no matter your race, color, creed, or religion, could have the right to vote.

Martin Luther King Mini-Series Coming to HBO!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 6th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

Martin Luther King, Jr.

When you hear ‘Civil Rights Movement’ most people associate that with Martin Luther King Jr., the figurehead that fueled the volt-face in the 1960’s. The American pastor and African-American Civil Rights leader is at the center of several different projects at the moment. It seems that putting King’s struggle into a workable form has been eluding filmmakers for years.

OSCARS: Who Got Snubbed?!?!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Jana B., Here….

 sasheer-zamata-michelle-obama

Big news from Saturday Night Live. Sasheer Zamata is the newest regular cast member to be signed to the NBC comedy staple. There are six new comedians being added this year. Instead of focusing on Zamata’s laughable qualities, the focus is on her sex and race. There has been massive criticism that the new batch of SNL cast members lacks not only minorities, but specifically the inclusion of Zamata, who is African American.  Lorne Michaels has been looking into black female comedians for some time now. Kerry Washington’s guest hosting episode saw her run ragged running from skit to skit playing a number of roles from Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce. Of the six new comedians coming on board this season all are white but Noel Wells who is Hispanic-Tunisian. There are only 2 African-Americans already anchored in their positions on the late night sketch show.

Film Review: ‘The Butler’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

THE BUTLER

Much like how ‘Forest Gump‘ was a feather in the wind, observing and interacting with major historic events through a few decades, Lee Daniels’ ‘The Butler’ uses a similar plot device as we see black man who worked in the cotton fields in the south and then ended up as a White House butler for seven U.S. presidents from Eisenhower through Reagan. With an all-star cast including Forest Whitaker, Oprah Winfrey, and Cuba Gooding Jr. amongst many others, and the subject matter of this fantastic film, I expect high returns at the box office.
