THE BIG SHOW SHOW – Netflix Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 6th, 2020

“The Big Show Show has just become champion and let’s hope it’s a multi-year reign on Netflix.”

Weeellllllllllllll…It’s The Big Show – Show! Netflix has become a tag team partner as of late with the giant pro-wrestling company WWE and has delivered on a brand new sitcom called The Big Show Show that stars The Big Show (Paul Wight II) from WWE, the famous and iconic wrestling superstar who was billed at a towering 7’1 tall man walking and weighing at 500 pounds. In the wrestling business, he was the next Andre the Giant. This Netflix sitcom pays homage to the early 1990s Nickelodeon and Primetime network shows that kids of the 70s and 80s grew up with.

The Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

Vice Squad – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2019

So a pimp, a prostitute, and a police detective walk into a bar. It sounds like the start of a bad joke or what could be a really good time with names like Princess and Ramrod, but in the case of 1982’s action film Vice Squad, that’s not always the case. In fact, this is a super sexualized crime thriller with some hardcore violence and one rough bad guy. This movie is the culmination of the late 70s and early 80s that brought together a ton of top-tier talent, which is funny because this movie is so over-the-top violent, that you can’t believe it was ever made and released. Gary Sherman directed this pic, who previously just came off Dead and Buried and went onto make Poltergeist III. He was joined by producing partner Robert Rehme (former president of Avco Pictures who helped make a ton of John Carpenter movies, including The Fog and Escape From New York). Also collaborating with this duo was cinematographer John Alcott, who had previously worked on four of Stanley Kubrick’s best films, including 2001: A Spacy Oddessy, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and A Clockwork Orange. Rounding out this stellar crew of talent is composer Joe Renzetti (Child’s Play). While the story may be your standard grindhouse B-movie affair, the visual style, camera angles, and score are out of this world.

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….


We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…


I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Film Review: ‘Roseanne For President’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2016

Joel H., Here…

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 10.42.40 AM

That laugh. That iconic friggin’ laugh. It’s been awhile. Maybe I’m out of touch with culture, which I don’t think I am, but I have not heard that laugh in so incredibly long. Immediately, I think back to my childhood and the interior of the Connor house, not too far off from my own at the time. The sound of that nasally chuckle takes me back like a song. (*Joel proceeds to smash a Smashmouth record*) Side note on being “taken back”, did anyone else grow up thinking the show “Dinosaurs” was a story-arch/dream-sequence within the Roseanne show? You know, the flannel shirts and all with John Goodman?

Film Review: ‘Eddie The Eagle’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 25th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 9.18.06 PM

Underdog stories are almost always fun. From ‘Miracle‘ to ‘Rocky‘ to even ‘Little Giants‘, these stories of regular people, who you normally wouldn’t pick for a sports team, prove that they have enough heart, guts, blood, and spirit to give it a real shot and make it to the top. Some of these films and television shows we’ve seen that have portrayed the ‘underdog’ scenario have been based on real people and real events, such as this one, ‘Eddie the Eagle‘. If you grew up during the 1980s, you might remember hearing about ‘Eddie the Eagle‘, who was a British Olympic ski jumper at the Calgary 1988 Olympics.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…


The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:
