Attack Force Z is coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Back in 1982, there was an Australian WWII film that was released that was called Attack Force Z. It starred the unknown actors Mel Gibson and Sam Neill, who both went on to be big blockbuster stars in Hollywood. You got to think that Gibson used his knowledge and memories on this film for his own movie Hacksaw Ridge. Now, the film is getting its Blu-ray release with a new 4K scan and new extras. Find out the details below.

Blu-ray Review: Going in Style!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

(Film Review portion is by Janet White)

Going in Style, a remake of the 1979 film of the same name, struts out of the Warner Brothers’ catalog to fill theaters with laughter once again. Joe (Michael Caine, formerly played by George Burns), Willie (Morgan Freeman, formerly Lee Strasberg), and Albert (Alan Arkinformerly Art Carney) mix it up to form a hilariously bad trio bent on robbing the establishments that robbed them of their pension. For thirty plus years they worked for Wechsler Steel Company who suddenly relocates out of the country and dissolves their pension fund. Faced with foreclosure, a need for a kidney transplant, and the knowledge that they were robbed to pay their former employer’s utility bills drive Joe, Willie, and Al to rob WSB bank.

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.

Celebrate the Life of George Romero!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan and Jana here….

George A. Romero 1940-2017

What a sad day this is. Just the other day, I was thinking and hoping that George Romero had one more zombie film in him left. That’s not the case as the Godfather of the zombie genre and one of the best filmmakers in the horror genre has died today at the age of 77 from lung cancer. With the past few years, the zombie genre has infiltrated every form of media. The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and tons zombie epics have come in the forms of comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. There wouldn’t be any of this, if it weren’t for George Romero who brought us a super small budget film in 1968 called Night of the Flesh Eaters, later changed to Night of the Living Dead, which gave us the zombie we know today.

Blu-ray Review: The Fate of the Furious!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’re eight movies into this franchise, which would have you assume that these films would have lost steam, been remade, or have a completely new cast. That’s not the case at all with ‘Fate of the Furious‘ or the 8th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, because there are no signs of this franchise slowing down, being remade, or losing any of its fun cast.

The New GEOSTORM Trailer is Insanely Ridiculous!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Geostorm is a new movie coming out from Warner Bros. that looks like every disaster movie mixed in with a presidential kidnapping with King Leonidas from 300, spartan kicking the weather down on Earth from his space station. I’m not kidding. This will either be the worst movie ever made or the best movie ever made. There will be no middle ground here.

Film Review #2: Baby Driver!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Baby Driver is a complicated movie to review. First of all, let me say, I really enjoyed it start to finish. It felt fresh, the performances were great, and the driving sequences were awesome. I find it complicated because not one thing that happened in the movie surprised me. There wasn’t one twist, one character turn, one motivation, or one general plot point that you haven’t seen executed in 30 other movies. The way it was shot or executed felt new at times but the plot was familiar and in a movie that felt so fresh it was weird that from a story stand point it was made of old recycled goods.

Film Review: The Big Sick!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 23rd, 2017

Beka P., here…

The-Big-Sick-movie

If The Big Sick isn’t on your must see movie list, do yourself a favor and rewrite the list. This film is the real life love story of how actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) met his girlfriend and (spoiler alert) now wife, Emily Gordon. It’s not another Fault in Our Stars or Me Before You, it’s so much more than a love sick story. Behind the romantic comedy model is a story about a Pakistani immigrant who is struggling with identity, relationships, family, career and religion. To put it simply- he’s just trying to figure out this thing we call life.

Blu-ray Review: Fist Fight

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 3.31.40 PM

THE FILM

Before I get into this, I need to say that I’m a huge fan of Charlie Day and Ice Cube. They have a lot of talent that spans different genres and keep delivering on each film they make. That’s not the case with Fist Fight though, which I must say is NOT their fault. Ice Cube is great in his role as Mr. Strickland, a high-school history teacher who is not above of cursing in class or taking an axe to a student’s desk with a room full of students. On the other hand is Charlie Day playing the straight and narrow guy who hates confrontation named Andy Campbell who seems to be the world’s coolest English teacher, but is lost in this movie.

Film Review #2 ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2017

Dan M., here….

maxresdefault

I realize that I am late on this one. I was out of town when it came out and frankly, there were just higher movies on the list I needed to see. Well I got to see King Arthur: Legend of the Sword finally and let me tell you… it is really good. Out of every summer movie this year that I have seen, including Fate of the Furious and Guardians Vol. 2, I left the theater thinking about a sequel to King Arthur the most.

Blu-ray Review: GET OUT!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

NE2UEHKXb05S62_1_1

THE FILM

When you say the name Jordan Peele, you would most likely think of the brilliant comedic stylings of Key and Peele or Peele’s time on MadTV. You might even crack a big smile, thinking of Peele’s recent film Keanu. But I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t think of the words “horror maestro” when you see Jordan Peele’s name come across the screen. And that’s exactly what Peele can add to his resume résumé with his new movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed for the genre mogul Blumhouse.

Film Review: Snatched!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2017

Beka P., here….

Screen Shot 2017-05-16 at 9.45.28 AM

So, Snatched won’t be winning any Oscars, but if you go in with incredibly low expectations, you can’t be that let down. It has some pretty funny parts, it has some first class actors (Amy Schumer is not one of them), and at the end of the day it’s a film about how much you need your mom and we can generally all get on board with that.

I love the first Guardians of the Galaxy. That movie is a blast and despite the typical Marvel villain issue, it is just a completely enjoyable movie start to finish. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues where the first one left off and despite not being as great as the first one, it is still a worthy sequel that is a blast for the entire run time.

Blu-ray Review: ‘How to Steal a Million’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

HowToStealAMillion_BD_HighRes__26953.1491194133.1280.1280

THE FILM

In 1964, Audrey Hepburn made My Fair Lady, which was met with critical claim and financial success. After all of the chaotic press tours, media coverage, and award shows that followed that film, Hepburn joined the cool, fun film How To Still A Million in 1966 with Peter O’Toole, along with William Wyler as director (Ben-Hur, Roman Holiday, The Best Years of Our Lives). Not exactly a light-weight. How To Still A Million can be compared to Ocean’s 11, The Thomas Crown Affair, or the recent Trance film if it were a comedy and light-hearted.

Blu-ray Review: The Fortune Cookie!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

TheFortuneCookie_BD_HighRes__20142.1491192512.1280.1280

THE FILM

We all miss Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. They had such excellent chemistry together through the years.  They starred in ten feature films together from Grump Old Men to The Odd Couple and everything in between. The duo had such comedic timing and love for each other that it just oozed off screen in and into everyone’s hearts. Their first film together was called The Fortune Cookie and cemented a life-long friendship and partnership in film that would last decades.
