Blu-ray Review: ‘Piranha II: The Spawning’!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 3rd, 2018

 

Back in 1981, the world was introduced to filmmaker James Cameron (T2: Judgement Day, Avatar, True Lies). His first feature film was called ‘Piranha II: The Spawning‘ or otherwise known as The Flying Killers and was a sequel to the first ‘Piranha‘ film from a few years prior. The production of this movie had a very troubled history, where Cameron wasn’t even the filmmaker hired for the job. The original director was fired due to differences with the hard-nosed Italian producer. This was also true with Cameron as well, where Cameron had a completely different filmed version and script of the movie that was more or less a comedy horror film that was fun.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Blumhouse and Todd McFarlane have announced today at San Diego Comic-Con that the creator/artist of the Spawn comic books will step into the director’s chair and make a Spawn movie. It’s not exactly news that there was going to be another Spawn film, but now we know the great production company Blumhouse (The Conjuring) is behind it with McFarlane himself stepping up to direct, which fairly rare.

TENET – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 31st, 2020

At this point in his career, Christopher Nolan doesn’t care to explain anything to his audience because he knows they are already along for the ride. Tenet is by far his most befuddling and convoluted story yet, almost demanding multiple viewings to break down exactly what is unfolding on screen at times. While the basic plot is easy enough to follow, Nolan uses his trademarked folding of time to show multiple events happening at once in a kaleidoscope universe that only the Dark Knight director can get away with creating on-screen which will likely lend itself to years of Reddit theories and breakdowns. Using his previous films as a grab bag, Nolan dumps all of his tricks into this one; A heist (Inception), paranoia (Memento, The Prestige), car chases (The Dark Knight Trilogy), audience time manipulation (Dunkirk), characters wearing masks so you can’t understand them (Bane), and of course a Michael Caine cameo. Yet all of these tricks, which he has mastered, don’t translate to anything more than an attempt at a greatest hits album instead of something interesting. There is no doubt that the middle of the road Nolan blockbuster is better than 95% of what is put in theaters any given year but after Tenet one might wonder if a more focused script could have resulted in one of his top 3 films.

DEAD TO ME SEASON 2 – Netflix Review!

by Bryan Kluger on May 4th, 2020

“Dead To Me Season 2 is a tight and entertaining season that promises even more drama and thrills in the future.”

At the turn of the century, a little tv show called Desperate Housewives changed the television landscape forever as it followed several gorgeous, successful, witty women who were involved in criminal activities. That show became a cultural phenomenon that spawned tons of primetime shows after it including Big Little Lies on HBO. Netflix struck gold with its own brand in that female-led comedy-drama in Dead to Me, starring Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini as two new friends who get caught in a very sticky situation.

DOLEMITE IS MY NAME – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 10th, 2019

Inspired by the true story of Rudy Ray Moore’s unconventional and surprising career comes to life in Craig Brewer’s new film ‘Dolemite is My Name‘ starring the impressive Eddie Murphy. The movie has a treasure trove of elements working in its favor, including a stellar cast, a story of making a movie on a low-budget, and Eddie Murphy in rare form, which has re-ignited his passion for stand-up comedy. Following on the footsteps of Brewer’s previous endeavors – ‘Hustle & Flow‘ and ‘Black Snake Moan‘ – ‘Dolemite is My Name‘ walks a different path, one of which brings big smiles and laughter to the screen every minute it’s rolling. Truly one of the best of the year.

‘The Evil Dead’ 4K UHD Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 11th, 2018

Perhaps the best horror film of all time and most certainly the most magnificent cult film of all time that gave us Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi to the world – ‘The Evil Dead‘ from 1981 is truly an extraordinary movie. This super low budget film with tons of gore spawned two sequels, a remake, and even a very successful 3-season tv series on Starz, not to mention countless toys, comics, and video games based off the film. Sam Raimi was just in his 20s when he made this movie with his family and friends, all shot on location in the middle of the woods, much to the chagrin of the actors. They powered through it and it became a huge success with big financing for a movie of this caliber and a winning review from the horror master himself Stephen King.

4K UHD Review: ‘Halloween’!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 2nd, 2018

John Carpenter’s original ‘Halloween‘ film is iconic, classic, amazing, scary, and still holds up to this day. It paved the way for modern horror movies and slashers and spawned numerous sequels. This film has been released dozens of times over the years on various formats, but this is the first time in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision, which is an upgrade, to say the least. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of the movie, this is a slow burn of a masked killer with supernatural abilities and demonic forces who stalks and kills his victims, most of them high-school students. He’s the one in the dark corners, behind walls, and hidden in the bushes waiting to pounce and brutally kill you.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Matrix’!

by Bryan Kluger on May 25th, 2018

THE FILM


There are only a handful of times where a single film completely flips the entire cinema world upside down and becomes the landmark and milestone for future movies and filmmakers in the decades to come. In 1999, the filmscape was forever changed with a sci-fi action movie called ‘The Matrix‘ by the Wachowski siblings. Nobody had ever heard of the filmmaking duo before and there was not a single soul in the world that though Keanu Reeves would become the action star he became after this movie, but it all worked out well and drove a ton of creative people to think, philosophize, and create even more work based on ‘The Matrix‘.

Film Review: ‘Death Wish’ (2018)!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 1st, 2018

Filmmaker Eli Roth is passionate about the horror and thriller genre since he was young. His big debut film was Cabin Fever, and then went on to the successful hyper-violent ‘Hostile’ film series. More recently, he made ‘Green Inferno‘, which was similar to ‘Cannibal Holocaust‘. Needless to say, Roth isn’t subtle in his filmmaking, as he’s shown close up gore and torture on screen with an over-the-top style. When it was announced that Roth was sitting in the director’s chair for a remake of 1974’s classic film ‘Death Wish‘, that replaces Charles Bronson with Bruce Willis, I was excitedly intrigued to see his take on this iconic film. With writer Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc, Smokin’ Aces) penning the script, this updated version of ‘Death Wish‘ is quite toned down for Eli Roth’s resume, which isn’t a bad thing.

You never thought we’d get a crossover feature animated film of Batman and Scooby-Doo, did you? Well we have one now and I’m here to say that’s it’s quite a fun experience that combines both the DC Universe and the classic Scooby-Doo antics that we’ve grown to love. This marks the 30th Scooby-Doo film and brings back the whole ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ cast back to the screen, which is the first time since 2011 when they went off the air with their hit TV show. On paper, or even the fun poster art of the film, you wouldn’t think these two worlds would mix well together, but when the two universes collide, its seems like they were always meant to be together and solve crimes together. They are the peanut butter and jelly of the animated world.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

Hey Riggs! ‘Lethal Weapon 5’ Might Happen!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 27th, 2017

You’re never too old for this shit as Warner Bros. is talking with everyone about a new ‘Lethal Weapon‘ film that brings back the original cast. According to some sources, director Richard Donner (Lethal Weapon, Superman, The Goonies) would return in the director’s chair with Channing Gibson writing the screenplay. That name isn’t a typo either. Channing Gibson wrote ‘Lethal Weapon 4‘ and ‘Walking Tall‘ with The Rock. This would also bring back Mel Gibson and Danny Glover in their respective and iconic roles.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Mummy’ (2017)

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 13th, 2017

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

The Mummy (1999) is by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  Written and directed by Stephen Sommers, it works as an homage to classic monster movies, great adventures, and old school “hero of the day” golden age of cinema films. Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and what can only be described as a truly breakout performance by Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy Himself, Imhotep!

With an-all star cast that includes Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, Luke Perry, Ben Affleck, and Rutger Hauer, it’s all vampires, blood, guts, cheerleading, and prom.

A Little Evil is coming to Netflix!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Netflix is releasing a new film called Little Evil from writer/director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale vs. Evil) that is a comedy-horror about a loving family of three. Well, maybe not loving, but more like the actual Antichrist. This looks like a lot of fun and has quite a good cast. If this is anything like Tucker & Dale vs. Evil, then we are in for an entertaining ride for sure. Enjoy the trailer below. Also, I must point out how eerily similar the boy in the poster above looks like a cross between Angus Young from AC/DC and Damien from The Omen. I can’t wait.

Vin Diesel is Remaking Miami Vice!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 2nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I guess since NBC is a fast sinking ship down into the ocean, it has to reboot its own vintage TV shows. This time, it’s with Miami Vice, which was a hit action-crime television series in the 1980s that spawned a huge fandom, music, and fashion. In 2006, director Michael Mann remade Miami Vice on the big screen with Jamie Foxx and Colin Farrell. To add insult to injury, Vin Diesel and Chris Morgan are producing this reboot, both of which have been involved in all of the Fast and Furious films.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The Walking Dead really brought zombies into the mainstream, mostly from its AMC series that is still going strong and is one of the most watched cable series ever. Back in 2003, Robert Kirkman began writing the comic books the TV series is based on. Cut to present day, there are currently 169 issues. At San Diego Comic-Con, Kirkman announced that he is finally ending the comic book series. He didn’t give a date yet, but it will be soon and has had the idea for a while now.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #11!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 12th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

When David Wain, Michael Showalter, and Michael Ian Black showed up on the entertainment scene, they brought comedy into a new direction with their unique humor and jokes in the Stella shorts. If you haven’t seen those, I highly suggest you check those out. A little bit later on, they made a tiny movie called Wet Hot American Summer, which became an instant beloved cult classic that has spawned multiple sequels/prequels in tv series form on Netflix. Speaking in terms of specific scenes though, one in particular comes to mind that makes me laugh out loud every time I see and think about it.

The John Wick Comic Book is Almost Here!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 20th, 2017

Hi  everyone, Bryan here….

JohnWick01-Cov-B-Cowan

We already knew that the comic book publisher Dynamite Entertainment had already worked a deal to bring the story of John Wick into the comic book world, but now we have a release date, writers, artists, and even some info on the story. John Wick is one of the best action films of recent memory. It spawned a recent sequel with both films making a ton of money and much critical praise. Not only does John Wick have spectacular stunt work and one hell of a story that follows a former assassin out to kill the people he once worked for, but this mysterious world John Wick is in has been living in is one that we’ve gotten glimpses of in the past two films, leaving us wanting more. This comic book will explore that world in more detail, which means more information on assassins, the hotels, and people who handle their business. I can’t wait.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

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.
