Hey guys, Jana here,

At the end of last week, we brought you a story that featured some casting news for Sony Playstation Network’s first foray into the original programming world. You can read that story, here. Today, we have more casting info.

Sharlto Copley has been in back and forth negotiations to star in the series based on the graphic novel. Copley is an excellent actor and one of my favorite things about the ‘A-Team‘ movie in 2010. His turn as Murdock was so inspired and hilarious, I could watch him all day. I still make jokes about any food that tastes a little off as having been grilled by Murdock with his special sauce (antifreeze). Most recently he was seen in ‘Maleficent‘ as Stefan, there are two films in a post-production phase right now that are set to come out in 2015.

Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo‘ follows a straight-laced business man named Harold (David Oyelowo) who works for a medical marijuana company run by Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron), who are planning a secret merger they don’t want Harold to discover. In order for the merger to go through, they must clean up the books at their Mexican facility which has been selling a “weed pill” to a cartel leader to help the company financially. At home, Harold’s wife (Thandie Newton) is cheating on him, further pushing Harold to the edge. For some reason, Amanda Seyfried shows up as the girlfriend of some guitar store employee sent to Mexico so steal some drugs from the same facility Harold is there to see. Eventually Harold ends up stuck in Mexico through a series of kidnappings and ploys, forcing Richard to ask his brother (a former mercenary), played by Sharlto Copley, to rescue Harold from Mexico.

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Film Review: ‘[Free Fire]’!!

by Janet White on Apr 21st, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Free Fire - Gun Gang

 

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.  Inundated with morons and piss-poor shooting for a calamitous combination, Free Fire leaves the audience either shaking their heads or bowing over laughing.  Between the mumbling of lines and poor volume control, I missed bits of the dialogue for sure.  It is as if they were aiming to repeat what Tarantino did with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but they were not clever enough.  Complete with wondrous never-ending bullet supplies and a villain’s miraculous ability to stave off death repeatedly aka “movie magic,” Free Fire simply does not make much sense.  Could a person, shot in their right arm, fire a weapon (even automatic rifles) with their right hand?

‘Hardcore Henry’ Trailers Are A Must-See!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

hardcorehenry_poster

I don’t know much about ‘Hardcore Henry‘, but now I’m all over it. This film looks insanely good. It might perhaps be the BEST film of the year, judging by these two trailers. The film will release on April 8th of this year with the lucky SXSW’ers getting a chance to see it this coming Sunday! I’m so jealous.

Film Review: ‘Maleficent’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

Different is not necessarily Evil. This is the lesson learned with the telling of King Arthur’s story through the eyes of Morgaine Le Fay in The Mists of AvalonMaleficent provides a different point of view for this timeless villain.  The original insight of Maleficent’s character was in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty where Maleficent was a wicked captor of a gentle beauty.  In her blazing greens and purples, she was terrifying and extremely menacing.  Maleficent offers the origin and growth of a fairy that is just a little bit different than the rest but nonetheless beautiful and powerful.

maleficent

Maleficent is by far one of the most wicked of all Disney villains. She appears at will, places curses on babies and that’s all before she turns into a bloody behemoth of a dragon! I just saw the new poster Disney released for “Maleficent“. This is the big movie we’ve heard of for so long that Angelina Jolie was supposed to be just perfect for.

Film Review: ‘Elysium’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 9th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 elysium-6

 

Neill Blomkamp soon became one of my favorite directors with his 2009 political sci-fi film ‘District 9‘. He had Peter Jackson in his corner and created a realistic world infested with aliens. The special effects blew everyone away. Not too mention it put actor Sharlto Copley on the map. The story, acting, and action in ‘District 9’ was nothing short of excellent. However, with Blomkamp’s second feature film ‘Elysium‘, the same cannot be said. While the sci-fi flick has some good moments, most of the film is wasted with lackluster acting and storytelling.

Hi Bryan Here…

Sorry for the lack of this column over the past few weeks.  Been so busy with the holiday season, the website moving to different bigger servers, planning on some big contests and info to dish out to yall, and a few other surprises here and there.  But alas, the Bluray/DVD column is back on track and will be out weekly again.  So i hope you enjoy this abundance of releases.  Tons of great stuff here.

As usual, 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 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 sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!

Fernando Travels to ‘Elysium’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 9th, 2013

Fernando, Here….

 Elysium_Damon_still.jpg.CROP.article568-large

In 2009, director Neill Blomkamp surprised the world with his film “District 9,” a sleeper hit that featured insights into racism, xenophobia, and segregation through a very creative science fiction setting.  Four years later, he again puts the sci fi spin into social commentary with “Elysium.”  This time around, Blomkamp has a big budget, big actors, big effects, but not the big impact.
