Film Review: ‘Red Dawn’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I admit, I was a bit apprehensive heading into watching this remake of the 1984 action film that starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Harry Dean Stanton, and Jennifer Grey.  The 80’s film was a big hit and is still good today. John Milius ,the director of the original film, made an imprint on the minds of the youth back then with a ‘what if’ scenario and a heck of a fun film.  This remake, while it is certainly very cheesy and awkwardly bad in tiny moments, the overall picture is a fine and worth-while remake despite its many faults.

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Rated R?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

how-much-extra-footage-do-you-expect-will-be-shown-at-the-imax-screening-365533

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ has received a new MPAA rating, this time as an R rating. No, this is NOT for the theatrical version, but rather as an option for the home video under the title “Ultimate Edition” when it completes its theatrical run. It’s disappointing that we won’t get to see that kind of violence on the big-screen, though.

We are only a few days away from the 87th annual Oscar ceremony, which airs live this Sunday. Again, we will be delivering a live commentary full of jokes, trivia, facts, winners, losers, and giving away free gifts throughout the night. So please, keep it right here during the Oscars and use the hashtag #boomstickcomics when posting to social media. But, let’s talk about predictions for a minute. I’m sure some of you have put some money down on Oscar pools at works or with your friends to see who comes out the winner this year. There were some excellent movies this year along with some amazing performances, so needless to say, this year will be extremely difficult to predict.

Film Review: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 11th, 2014

Ben K., Here…

maxresdefault

Back in 2011, I ended my “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” review excited about what the future held for the rebooted series. As the screen went dark and the credits of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” began to roll, I realized my high expectations had been met just three years later. If “Rise” hit all the right notes of an introductory chapter, then “Dawn” was even more on pitch with the rising action of a second act.

Well it looks like Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. has an official title for the new Batman/Superman movie, which will be called ‘Dawn of Justice‘. I bet that means Dawn of the ‘Justice League‘, which Warner Bros. has been planning for quite sometime now. The film is set to open up on may 6th, 2016 and production has officially begun.

Film Review: ‘Twilight: Breaking Dawn, Part 2 ‘

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2012

Suzanne, Here….

This is the end – finally. After four books and five movies, Stephenie Meyer’s ode to the true love between an insipidly needy girl and an overbearing vampire is complete with the opening of Breaking Dawn, Part 2 (BD2). If you are a ‘tween or extremely bored and emotionally stunted older woman that loves this series, then you might want to stop reading this review.

Hi Bryan Here…

This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get to experience Kevin Smith’s latest film, “RED STATE” in Kansas City, Missouri.  This was, to say the least, one of my BEST film experiences i have ever had.  To be a part of this event was like being a part of history in the making.  At least that is what it felt like to me.  I first remember hearing that Kevin Smith (the Clerks & Mallrats guy) was writing and planing to make a horror film.  A political horror film at that.  This was a couple of years ago or more.  after i first heard this news, I thought to myself, “This could be something great.  Kevin can write dialogue like no one else and with his talent of writing, he can make one hell of a horror film.  But would it be comedic?  Would it have all the dick and butt-hole jokes like the rest of films have? I can’t wait to find out.”  And from what transpired at the Midland AMC Theatre on March 12th, 2011 was heavily drenched with heart, soul, courage, great filmmaking, Star Wars, and LOVE.

Powers Boothe

June 1, 1948 – Mar 14, 2017

When great entertainers pass away, it’s difficult to come up with the right way to mourn a life that still lives on for us in so many ways. The one way we can not just respect the life, but continue to enjoy the life they lived is with re-watching their movies that cement their presence in our lives.

Film Review: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’!!

by Janet White on Apr 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Huntsman

 

Let’s say just say it…Snow White and the Huntsman was not well done.The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the hot and cold shell that envelops its predecessor.  It’s not perfect, but is action enjoyment coupled with corny sporadic humor.  Not to mention, Chris Hemsworth finally got his balls back.  I can tell you that.  Snow White and the Huntsman emasculated the action-packed hunk of man that is Hemsworth.  Though some believe that this story should not have been told, but I enjoyed the unveiling of the back-backstory.  The film could have been structured to be less predictable but sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy a film for your base needs: adrenaline, fear, and desire.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Disney has found another story they are mining for live-action and it’s not exactly a remake of one of their established animated classics. It’s a prequel to the 1992 smash-success ‘Aladdin‘ titled ‘Genies‘. While the project has a producer and writers, there is no director attached to the undertaking at the moment.

Brace yourselves, every habit-ish line, saying or phrase you can think of is about to be thrust upon you now that Disney has upped the ante on the remake game, announcing that ‘Sister Act‘ is on the block as the next title to be revamped. They’re Catholic, they’re nuns and nuns wear habits, got it.

The first trailer for the ‘Point Break‘ revamp is making waves. I’m not much of a fan of remakes to begin with, but when you take a Patrick Swayze movie that isn’t old enough to need re-telling and bastardize it, I get a little huffy.

‘Gremlins’ Will Undergo A Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 9th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

Gizmo

Up next for the remake film treatment is one of my childhood favorites, ‘Gremlins‘. I grew up loving Gremlins, they start out absolutely adorable, but just like any horror movie from the 80’s there’s a strict set of rules you have to follow to survive. Instead of not having sex, you can’t get the precious Mogwai wet or you will likely die. In a horror movie you don’t split away from your group, but in ‘Gremlins‘ you can’t feed them after midnight, or you will likely die. I wonder if there’s a parallel universe and movies are the Mogwai, if you get them wet, they replicate a bad copy of the original, I’d say that’s the cause for the remake-hell we are living through.

BG_Blackhat trailer 2

A tragedy occurs in China and a computer virus is recognized as the culprit.  The Chinese government immediately called in their cyber security expert, Captain Chen Dawai (Leehom Wang).  In the US, the CIA is working on the cyber attack, too.  Enters Agent Carol Barrett, not Carol Burnett, (the fabulous Viola Davis) which begins the China and US taskforce.  But who sent it?  Captain Dawai knows who will help him find the villain.  His former classmate, Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth), is a genius when it comes to code.  Unfortunately, Hathaway was locked up.  Can a deal be struck to catch the bad guy?

Sequel to TMNT Announced!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 11th, 2014

Hey everyone, Jana here,

 

Teenage_Mutant_Ninja_Turtletop

 

I get so sad for the future of American film some days. This film is a perfect case-in-point. First off, we had to know that once Michael Bay got his hands on the film rights to one of my childhood favorites, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘, that regular rules of paying respect, homage, or even a gentle nod to their beginnings as a comic book was a long shot. I think the first warning of potential trouble had to come when we saw Bay was involved. Most people would think well, he’s just a producer and not going to direct and be such a vital part of the final product. Those people would be wrong.

Top 10 List: The 10 Most American Movies!!

It’s that time of year again. Time to celebrate the founding of this nation by eating excessively and purchasing enough fireworks to create man-sized craters in the pavement. In honor of this time, here’s a list of the most ‘Murican movies ever. This isn’t a list of patriotic movies (though some of these could be seen as patriotic), so you aren’t going to see Saving Private Ryan or other true patriotic movies on here. This list focuses on those things that make America into ‘Murica – extreme excess and over-the-top…well, everything! [Cue eagle screech]

Book of Negroes

Lawrence Hill wrote a book that has two names. ‘The Book Of Negroes‘ is the Canadian title and ‘Someone Knows My Name‘ is the Americanized title. The base of the story is told through the eyes of Aminata Diallo. She is kidnapped from her South African home at the age of 11. She travels the ocean in captivity being sold into slavery in California. Like the book title, her name is changed once she gets into America, as well.
