The 1971 Clint Eastwood flick, ‘The Beguiled‘ is heading towards a remake by director Sofia Coppola. But who do you replace Clint Eastwood with? Dirty Harry has a unique presence on-screen and he’s not so easy to replace, but it is possible to do, as the Coen’s discovered with 2010’s ‘True Grit‘. Jeff Bridges won’t be the go-to for Eastwood’s role, but Colin Farrell is stepping into Eastwood’s amputee boots.

The Venice Film Festival headed by Quentin Tarantino awarded Sofia Coppola’s movie “Somewhere” the Golden Lion which is the top award given at this film festival.  Now I have enjoyed Sofia’s past films including Lost in  Translation, The Virgin Suicides, and for what it was Marie Antoinette.

“Somewhere stars Michelle Monaghan, Stephen Dorff, and Benicio Del Toro.  Tarantino said “This was a film that enchanted us from our first screening…Yet from that first enchanting screening, it grew and grew and grew in both our hearts, in our analysis, in our minds, and in our affections.” The jury’s decision was unanimous.

“Somewhere” is about a hard living, hard working actor in LA who has to re-evaluate his life when his 11 year old daughter comes for a surprise visit.

If this movie is anything like Sofia’s previous work then I no doubt will love this film and it will be loved by all.

And of course I look forward to the killer soundtrack this movie will be providing.

The trailer is below.  Enjoy.

Universal Pictures is rebooting their monster movie franchise and the first tent pole to be staked is ‘The Mummy‘ debuting on June 9, 2017. Director Alex Kurtzman (‘People Like Us‘) worked with a stellar cast to kick off this new universe where all the films will be entwined and venture into each other’s films  à la the Marvel Cinematic Universe. We see the first crossover as Rusell Crowe’s Dr. Henry Jekyll is very visible in this film, or at least in the trailer. The cast includes Sofia Boutella, Tom Cruise, Annabelle Wallis, Chasty Ballesteros, and Courtney B. Vance.

Hey guys, Jana here,

the-mummy-poster

I love Universal’s monster movies and I couldn’t have been more thrilled when I heard the company was rebooting the films into huge tentpole events all the while adding more depth to the classic monster universe. First up for renovation was ‘The Mummy‘ with Tom Cruise attached. Say what you will about him personally, or even religiously, but the man can carry a film and I’m nothing but excited for it. I suppose Universal hopes others feel that way, and have gifted us a little teaser to give us a small taste of what this movie can be.

Film Review: ‘The Longest Ride’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 10th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

home-page-feature-image-front-main-stage-2

Real love is seldom portrayed in film.  Two people meet, they fall in love and would do anything for each other.  Love is not flowers day in and day out.  Love is as much about sacrifice as it is about fulfillment.  Love worth having must be earned, pursued, and above all respected.  Not since The Fault in Our Stars had I witnessed such a true example of love.  Not without flaw, but the closest of late, is The Longest Ride.  This film does “real love” justice.

Here Is Ben’s Film Review of ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2014

Ben K., Here…

godzilla-2014-wallpaper-images-photos-0302091031

Despite a rich and incredibly varied film history, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more famous Japanese cinematic export than Godzilla. Born at Toho Company in 1954, he’s still alive and kicking ass, as it were, at the ripe age of sixty. Cast as a villain and a hero over the years, whatever his role, he has always been nature’s favorite solution to just about any problem. Six decades ago he was awakened by atomic bomb testing and took revenge on mankind for creating them. In this new Gareth Edwards iteration, other monsters feed on radiation from our nuclear power plants in order to wreak similar havoc, so Godzilla is sent to annihilate them.

Film Review: ‘Fading Gigolo’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

FADING GIGOLO

I never thought I’d see the day where Woody Allen would play a pimp who had a male prostitute played by John Turturro. Fortunately for everyone, that day has finally come, and I’m proud to say that I’m a big fan of the film ‘Fading Gigolo‘.We all know who Woody Allen is and most of us know John Turturro from a variety of acting roles he has done over the past couple of decades including Jesus Quintana (‘The Big Lebowski‘), Pete (‘O Brother Where Art Thou‘), Knish (‘Rounders‘), and of course Barton Fink. I could keep going, but you get the picture.

Film Review: ‘The Bag Man’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 28th, 2014

Jana B. here,

The Bag Man

I really wanted to like ‘The Bag Man‘, I did. I love Robert De Niro. I love John Cusack. How could this not be an awesome movie? It started out really promising. The opening scene jumped right into the plot. No excessive build-up, no slow start, just right there. Boom! On first impressions I was already bored of hearing about the bloody bag but I was intrigued, too. I want to know what’s in the bag but I’m also trying to figure out who decided to outfit De Niro and Cusack with the most ridiculous eye-wear known to man. De Niro’s begin to grow on you, but there is no way I could ever take Cusack seriously in those hideous specs.

The last episode of ‘The Walking Dead‘ left us with the prison under siege by a deadly flu virus and Carol as the killer of Karen and David. I see why Carol killed them for the greater good. Unfortunately, she was not able to contain the virus and a group is out in the middle of nowhere getting medicine. Lets pick up where we last left off.

Film Review: ‘Machete Kills’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

www.indiewire

‘Machete don’t tweet’ is one of the lines that is uttered by Danny Trejo’s iconic character, Machete Cortez in this new hilarious fun-as-hell sequel by Austin director Robert Rodriguez. It’s one of several “Machete don’t” pieces of dialogue that is said throughout the film. It’s funny, because Rodriguez actually made a ‘Star Wars‘ film with Machete in it this time around. Not only do we see machete lightsabers and similar characters in the ‘Star Wars’ universe, but we also get carbonite and landspeeders, and at the end of the film, it all comes full circle, as you’ll say, “I just watched a ‘Star Wars’ movie made by Robert Rodriguez. With an all-star cast and even more blood, guts, and kills than the first one, this over-the-top and highly entertaining sequel will sure make decent returns to warrant a third sequel, which is heavily promoted in the form of a trailer before the film starts and at the end of the film entitled ,’Machete Kills Again…In Space‘.

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.

‘Treme’ Returns for 3rd Season Sept. 23!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

First, the people came back. Then, the crime. Now, more than two years after the near death of a great city, the money is starting to arrive, which would sound like a solution if this were some place other than New Orleans, and this was some other era but America at the millennium. For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. However, little of what they can bring to bear yields a quick result, and nothing about New Orleans – its government, its police department and courtrooms, its school system – works as it should. Nothing is easy.  In the end, their only weapons are community. And culture.

Hi Bryan Here….

There are not a lot of reviews yet for this movie, but the ones I have seen so far have not been good at all.  I whole heartedly disagree with all of these critics.  This ‘Smurfs’ movie was surprisingly a whole lot of fun, great, and funny.  I was not expecting that at all.  The mix between the CG and real world is amazing.  And Hank Azaria’s performance as Gargamel is spectacular.  He has proven once again he is one of the greatest character actors of our time. This movie will be fun for the whole family with everyone of every age enjoying it.

Hi Bryan Here….

Here is one hell of a geek deal.  ‘The Godfather’ Trilogy for 60% off.  It normally sells for $125.00, but now through us and AMAZON, get it for only $49.99.  Now I know Godfather III gets a bad rap, and it is nowhere near the quality of the third film, but compared to most trilogies or even movies, Godfather III is pretty great.

First off, I think it is amazing the band Metallica is still around.  They really haven’t had a great album since Master of Puppets or the Black Album.  It is also beyond me that Metallica still has fans with what happened when Metallica went after all of their fans who spent their hard earned money on every album and concert and try to sue all of their fans for downloading their music for free.  I think Metallica can be a great cover band, but that’s about it.

Anywho, Lars Ulrich of Metallica told Classic Rock Magazine that Metallica is toying with the idea of bringing the biggest concert of all time to the states.  It would bring the four BIG bands together for a tour which are: Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeath.  Supposedly all the bands are in for it except for Metallica at the moment.

Ulrich said, “The vibe on this thing is so big, we’d be stupid to ignore it. You know on your iPhone, you can move the weather maps up and down? Well, the ‘Big Four’ is quickly moving up to the top in terms of potential occurrences for the next couple of years.”

I do not think that quote makes any kind of coherent sense.

Are these really the four BIG BANDS?  According to who?

How about a concert with Iron Maiden, Rob Zombie, AC/DC, and Black Sabbath?  Now that would be great.
