Favorite WWE Matches of 2016!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-4-38-29-pm

Yes, there were a list of movies that tickled my fancy and made me laugh, cry, and be scared so badly that I had to sleep with the lights on. That list is HERE for your enjoyment. Moving on from that, if you have ever met me or have perused this site, you would know that I like a bit of the ole Pro-Wrestling just a smidgen. So it wouldn’t ben an end-of-year celebrations without trying to show you or convince you that Pro-Wrestling is the BEST thing in the universe. After all, ‘Wrestling is Everything is Everything’.

This is one of the most fun and highest forms of entertainment on the planet and a lot of the time when I’m at screenings, I wish I were watching some good ole fashioned wrestling matches. I don’t know why, but it must be in my blood. The below matches are for sure my favorite from the WWE company strictly. If I were to do an all encompassing pro-wrestling list, I would be writing this for the next two weeks and “ain’t nobody got time for that.” So I’ll leave the ‘Wrestle Circus‘, ‘VIP Wrestling‘, ‘NJPW‘, ‘ROH‘, ‘PWG‘, and ‘Evolve‘ for another post, although I think Jervis Cottonbelly and Joey Ryan (The King of Dong Style) deserve some recognition as perhaps some of the best talent in the wrestling business. Seriously, look them up.

Also, at the very bottom of this list, I will place a non-WWE match, which is one of the best matches I’ve ever seen in Pro-Wrestling, and it deserves it’s own place and category, because it’s that hardcore, fun, and insane. I highly suggest you give these matches that are listed below a real chance. You’ll see the storyline that is being told in the squared circle, the amount of high voltage entertainment and athleticism that goes on each and every night here. You will certainly enjoy it.

Ten Great Lesser-Known Films Starring Big Name Actors!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

Green_street_hooligans

You might find yourself reading the following list, thinking “Hey! I’ve seen all these movies! How dare you claim them to be ‘lesser-known’!” My response to you, should you say such a thing, is “congratulations.” You see, just because you are a film nut like me, doesn’t mean that the rest of the populace is. The following is a list of ten good films with big-named actors that somehow slipped under the general radar. I’m not saying they are completely unknown, but based upon ticket sales, it certainly seems like they slipped the notice of the general public. These are all solid films that, should you enjoy these actors, you definitely want to check them out (the films, not the actors – although to each their own, I guess).

‘The Purge 3’ In Development Stage!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

11173717_800

 

Universal, Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes are beginning development on a third visit to a world where ‘The Purge‘ is a yearly event. If you’ve been in a cave the last few years, I’ll give you the high points. March 21 at 7pm until March 22 at 7am, is the annual purge. This is 12 hours where every crime imaginable is legal, police do not respond and emergency help of any kind is only what your neighbor is willing to do for you. Most families lock themselves away from the evil that lurks just outside the door. Yes, this is the movie franchise that began scaring communities when moronic teenagers began promoting the event for Louisville, KY in what turned out to be a hoax.

Broadway’s First Black Cinderella Takes Stage!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Remember the movie ‘Akeelah and the Bee‘? Akeelah is all grown up now and preparing to take her place on the Great White Way. Keke Palmer is a long way from where she began her career as a thespian and is watching her dreams come true in a whole new way, now. Palmer will be the title character in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella‘ bowing on September 9th at the Broadway Theatre. Not only is she the new lead for the show, but she takes precedence as the show’s first black Cinderella. Brandy held the same distinction when she wore the glass slippers in 1997’s TV Movie of the same name.

Heard About ‘Stage Fright’, The Horror Musical!?!?

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 6th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

 

Stage Fright

 

Genre-bending features are not a really new thing. When they’re done right though, we stand up and cheer. Remember ‘Zombieland‘, a grisly zombie flick that made us scream – with laughter? ‘The Cabin in the Woods‘, ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘? If the movie can be categorized by more than one descriptor, it’s a genre-bender. ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ for example can go into Sci-Fi, Comedy, Musical and Horror categories. After all that explanation, I can tell you that I am excited for the release of the horror comedy musical, ‘Stage Fright‘.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Top 133 Films of the Last Decade (#133 – #120)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2010

Earlier in the year, I made my list of favorite and best films to come out between the years 2000 and 2010.  A ten year span of great films.  Films that I completely forgot about.  Films you may have not even heard of.

So I came up with 133 films which was narrowed down from about 300 or more.  Below is the start of the list which has the film title, the date it was released, and my brief personal memory and review of the film.  Plus the link to purchase the movie for a cheap price.

It was a great time coming up with this list.  It was also fairly difficult once I got down to the last 20 or so because they are in fact in order from great to the absolute best of the year.

So over the next few days I will be posting more titles as we get to the #1 spot.

I hope you enjoy and feel free to comment.

133_ Wet Hot American Summer – July 27, 2001

How could this movie not be on a favorite list?  Especially a list of top films of a decade.  This film is balls out hilarious, but in that silly way.  It takes place in the 80’s at a summer camp on the last day of camp.  Directed by David Wain from Stella, Role Models, and The Ten, with an all-star comedic cast including Janeane Garofalo, Paul Rudd, David Hyde Pierce, Amy Poehler, and Michael Ian Black, amongst others.  There are plenty of quotable lines and tons of gut-busting laughs.

132_ The Bridge – October 27, 2006

This is a very haunting documentary that I remember having many conversations

with people after viewings.  Two filmmakers set out to make a documentary film on the Golden Gate Bridge on its history and beauty.  As they were filming the bridge, the filmmakers noticed people committing suicide by jumping off the bridge quite often.  This documentary is about those suicides and interviews with  the vicitims families and friends.  You will actually see people talking on the phone – hang up – then jump to their death.  It is unforgettable.

131_ Bandits – October 12, 2001

I loved this film with Bruce Willis and Billy Bob Thorton who stole the show.  These two characters are criminals in jail who break out of prison and go on a bank robbing spree.  It is very heart felt and load of hilarity.  Not any of it seems forced.  Actually, the two bank robbers are the good guys.  Great film that I feel that was missed by a lot of people.  Check it out.

130_ JCVD – June 4, 2008

JCVD as in Jean-Claude Van Damme.  This film is brilliant.  It is fiction mixed in with documentary.  Very strange but oh so good.  This is NO action flick.  AT ALL.  JCVD plays himself in real life.  He is coming to terms that he is just a B movie actor that fights.  His personal life is in shambles and he has no money and his wife is trying to get custody of his kid in the bitter divorce battle.  Add to that while he is getting a wire transfer of money in his home town at the post office, criminals hold everyone hostage and want money and tell the press and officers outside that JCVD is the culprit.  This film is very emotional and very well acted.  Yes.  Very well acted.  I really hope to see what this director does next.  Truly excellent film.

129_ Kung Fu Hustle – April 8, 2005

From the makes of Shaolin Soccer comes King Fu Hustle with Stephen Chow.  This movie is all sorts of fun.  A Kung Fu film that does not take itself seriously and packs high end special effects and lots of laughs.  Typical evil vs good film.  I love these types of films and will always hold a place in my heart for Stephen Chow.

128_ Death To Smoochy – March 29, 2002

I’m a sucker for dark comedies.  This is one of the best.  I great cast of Edward Norton and Robin Williams who play kid tv show personalities who are bitter rivals.  This shows what the seedy underbelly of kids shows are really about.  Such great black humor and very well directed by Danny Devito.  Loved it.

127_ Ginger Snaps – May 11, 2001

A kick ass different take on werewolf movies that involve high school sisters.  Extremely gory and violent with a dark wit that takes you on a great journey on what it is like to transform into a werewolf in high school.  Sexy Werewolves equal AWESOME!

126_ Remember the Titans – September 29, 2000

I remember seeing this film and becoming very emotional while watching it.  Based on a true story in the south about a black high school football coach overcoming racism in the 60’s as he leads his interracial football team to win the championship undefeated.  The soundtrack to this film is top notch and a great performance from Denzel Washington.  One great heart felt Disney Film.

125_ Team America: World Police – October 15, 2004

From the creators of South Park comes a Jerry Bruckhemier/Michael Bay marionette production of a group US citizens who fight the war on terror.  Very crude and lewd and hilarious.  Oh the sex scene is worth the price of admission alone.  America….Fuck Yeah!

124_ Knocked Up – June 1, 2007

The sophomore effort from Judd Apatow is a great film about a stoner schmuck who scores a one night stand with a hot tv personality who becomes pregnant.  Apatow mixes great feeling and emotion with tons of dick jokes.  A perfect combination that makes a successful story and film. The deleted scene with Jonah Hill and Katherine Hiegel discussing Brokeback Mountain is one of the greatest discussions EVER!

123_ The Simpsons Movie – July 27, 2007

Finally!  Fifteen years in the making.  This had everything that I wanted in a Simpsons movie.  Good morals, great story, and lots of laughs and inside jokes made this brilliant movie a masterpiece.  Matt Groening made America’s favorite family a joy to watch all these years and the movie was NOT  a let down.  Keep up the good work.

122_ Chocolate – February 6, 2008

An awesome Thai film about a girl with emotional problems to the ppoint where she is almost non-sociable with anyone.  She has a great fondness for Chocolate and once she sees some Thai Fightin on tv courtesy of Tony Jaa, she learns to fight by watching it and then goes after bad guys in the neighborhood.  A film that has no stunt wires or special effects, but stuntmen who take real hits and fall hard.  A real treat in filmmaking.

121_ School of Rock – October 3, 2003

A perfect combination of Jack Black being Jack Black while Jack Black teaches kids about music and playing rock music.  This movie could have failed in so many places, but I was surprised on every corner.  This film plays very well to all audiences.  If you love music and comedy than this is a film you have to see.  Very well done.

120_ Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone – November 16, 2001

The first film in the whole series created a whole new world to everyone and in filmmaking.  Great filmmaking and acting as well as speical effects made this children’s book come to life and was great for the whole family.

Blu-ray Review: The Big Sick!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Film portion is written by Beka Perlstein:

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: The Lion King Signature Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

I remember when this came out in the cinema.  I was totally and utterly infatuated with this film.  I loved everything about ‘The Lion King’. I loved the characters, the animation, the music, and the story.  It was unbelievable when I first saw it at the age of 13.  Now I am almost 36, and the film still makes me feel like I did when I first saw it.  I am still completely in awe of ‘The Lion King’. Six years after the big Diamond Edition of the Blu-ray, which included 3D, we now have the Signature Collection of the film, which has some new bonus features, along with some older ones. The audio and video presentations seem to be the same transfers.
