Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

From the great musical maestro, Andrew Lloyd Webber comes new music to rock you out of your seat. Dallas Summer Musicals presents School of Rock the Musical, based on the film of the same name. Jack Black made you laugh to your core in the lead role, Dewey. Dewey (Rob Colletti) wants nothing more than to become a rock star. He is a leech seemingly stuck permanently to his best friend, Ned’s (Matt Bittner), backside. Much to the dismay of Ned’s girlfriend, Patty (Emily Borromeo), who wants Dewey to grow up and contribute to the household. Faced with the threat of eviction, Dewey assumes Ned’s identity as a substitute teacher for the elite, posh Horace Green Preparatory School. Wackiness ensues and so does your good time!

School of Rock Adapted To Series for Nickelodeon!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 5th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

I’m still surprised there is a world where Jack Black and kids go great together, but that’s what 2003’s ‘School of Rock’ proved to be true. Nickelodeon likes the idea so much they have given a straight-to series order for a TV show based on the film. Teaming up with Paramount TV, Nickelodeon brings back director Richard Linklater (‘Dazed & Confused’) and pairing him with writers Jim and Steve Armogida (‘Crash and Bernstein‘) and Scott Rudin (‘No Country For Old Men‘) will executive produce.

by Janet White on Sep 28th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

When life hands you lemons, make lemon drops.

Right off a cool special effect, test questions pop off the page and fly about the room, makes Teddy’s challenge tangible for the audience.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

We’ve known for a while now that Hollywood was trying to remake ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘. We’ve seen various iterations on the cult icon film from ‘Glee‘ to ‘The Simpsons‘, and even recently, MTV and Fox is trying to put their spin on the classic musical. Fox’s version is gaining steam though as Laverne Cox (‘Orange is the New Black) has just been cast as Frank-N-Furter, which was originally played by Tim Curry in the original film and stage play.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The-Rocky-Horror-Picture-Show-Image-3

This whole re-make thing is nothing short of annoying when one of your favorite movies is zeroed in on as the next target. Another of my favorite musicals will be going under the equivalent of a plastic surgeons knife. The goal is to freshen the story while leaving the overall appearance the same. All to often in cosmetic surgeries the end product is completely unrecognized, the same thing happens with retooled shows. Needless to say my first words were ‘Damnit Janet’ when I read that ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘ was the project in Fox’s crosshairs.

Film Review: ‘Everybody Wants Some’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

everybody-wants-some-image1

In my mind, Richard Linklater can do no wrong. He is one of the best filmmakers working today and he continues do break ground with iconic films that will forever be seared into our memory. Recently, his film ‘Boyhood‘ garnered a ton of awards and was a milestone in filmmaking as he took twelve years to film the story of a boy growing up around his broken family. It was one of the best movies of that year. From ‘School of Rock‘ to ‘Bernie‘ to ‘Slacker‘ to the ‘Before‘ trilogy – we’ve seen Linklater grow as a filmmaker and deliver excellent characters and great soundtracks over the years. Perhaps his best known or cult favorite film was from 23 years ago, which of course was ‘Dazed and Confused‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

galaxyquest

Was there a better spoof comedy in 1999 than ‘Galaxy Quest‘? I’m gonna go ahead and say there wasn’t and Quest was the greatest thing since ‘Spaceballs‘. As far as space spoofs go, it was killer and it helped that Tim Allen starred. In the 90’s I was addicted to ‘Home Improvement‘ and couldn’t get enough of the comedian. I actually read both of his books and watched every show in syndication so many times that I could quote them in my sleep. With my love of Allen, it was a given I had to watch ‘Galaxy Quest‘, the bonus part was, it was an epic movie on its own!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 6th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan  Here…

blu-ray

It’s been a long while since I’ve done a Blu-ray column for the site. Hell, it might be two years since the last Blu-ray release column was released here. But I figure since it’s 2015 and there aren’t any apocalyptic scenarios or a rat infestation in the house yet, so now must be as good a time as any to start this fun column back up. As usual in this article, 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 picture-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 bizarre tales. So click on the pictures and start saving.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

original

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Richard Linklater, then you’re in for a real treat. Linklater is a Texas filmmaker who is known for making iconic movies in and around Austin and Dallas, Texas. His films include ‘Slacker‘, ‘School of Rock‘, the ‘Before‘ series, ‘Bernie‘, and the iconic and legendary piece of cinema ‘Dazed and Confused‘. But nothing could have prepared us for his newest film called ‘Boyhood‘, which is a cinematic milestone and achievement and something that will be talked about and praised for many years to come.

Jana B. here,

 

The Brink

HBO, in a quick move, has given a series order to ‘The Brink‘. The comedy stars Jack Black (‘Tropic Thunder‘, ‘School of Rock‘) and Tim Robbins (‘The Shawshank Redemption‘ and ‘Mystic River‘), directed by Jay Roach (‘Meet The Parents‘, ‘Austin Powers‘) and executive produced by Jerry Weintraub (‘The Karate Kid’ franchise, ‘Oceans Eleven’ and the newly announced ‘Tarzan’). Now that we have the proven star power behind this project, we need talented writers to bring it to fruition. Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim Benabib are penning the script. Roberto Benabib has shown a master handle on writing a dark comedy with his successful stint at writing for the show ‘Weeds‘ and ‘Ally McBeal‘.

NBC Gives Craig Robinson’s Comedy A Series Order!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2014

Jana B., Here….

 Craig2

Craig Robinson is one of the funniest dudes on film and screen today. Every time I hear his name, I see him screaming from the building after discovering they’re back in the 80’s. This guy can make a scream hilarious. Needless to say, I’m thrilled that a comedy project starring Robinson has finally got a six episode commitment after being stalled for a year after the pilot.
