Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Film Review: mother!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s been proven over the last two decades that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky makes movies his own way. He doesn’t bow down to Hollywood execs and never makes movies for the masses. Most people would fail with this tactic, but with Aronofsky, he wins awards and is met with critical acclaim. With films like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler (I won’t mention Noah) – you can tell that Aronofsky doesn’t make tightly wrapped, happy movies with pretty little bows on them. I commend him for this, because he’s doing something that nobody else is doing.

THE FILM

Film Review: ‘We Are the Flesh’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-01-21 at 8.28.19 PM

Filmmaker Emiliano Rocha Minter has certainly cemented his name in the annals of art house horror and sexual fantasy cinema with his Spanish film ‘We Are The Flesh‘. Standing in the same room with films of Gaspar Noe (‘Irreversible‘, ‘Enter The Void‘), John Waters (‘Pink Flamingos‘), and dare I even say Pier Paolo Pasolini (‘Salo: 120 Days of Sodom‘), ‘We Are The Flesh‘ takes a very violent and sexual look into a surreal apocalyptic scenario in something that you’ve never really seen before. For all of its taboo subjects that it has no problems or apologies for showing on screen, sometimes which is up close and personal, Minter gives a very Kubrick-esque look at this bizarre story.

Film Review: ‘RAW’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1-zkonh7qleuq1z_ecz0plg

RAW‘ made me remember why I love movies. I can’t wait for you all to feast your eyes and stomachs on first time French director Julia Ducournau’s masterpiece in cinema, simply titled ‘RAW‘. Julia takes an overly done genre trope (cannibalism) and completely makes it fresh, organic, and ready to serve to the masses in a very beautiful, elegant, and most disturbing way in which a young woman is on a coming-of-age quest in her life and discovers her sexual side as well as a new appetite.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

chris-benoit-imageevent

In news I thought I’d never report on, Hollywood is making a Chris Benoit biopic with Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans, Punisher: War Zone) in the director’s chair. if you’re unfamiliar with the name Chris Benoit, I’ll give you a little background. Chris Benoit is a taboo subject in the WWE and has been for an umber of years. Yes, the WWE as in World Wrestling Entertainment, where Chris Benoit was one of the best wrestlers and superstars the company has ever seen. He held the champion titles a number of times and was one of the best in the business in his career. His nickname was the Rabid Wolverine and was called Toothless Aggression, since he was missing a tooth.

Hey guys, Jana here,

threes_company_landlord_apartment_jack_3d_hd-wallpaper-569919

Classic TV Series turning into movies is something a lot of us are sooooo sick of. They are either really great, or really awful – not much of an in between point. I can usually pinpoint where I’ll land on that scale depending on the property in question. This time, it’s ‘Three’s Company‘. Yeah, the song that’s stuck in your head has been on a permanent loop in my head for the last 10 hours, and if it’s not in your head, yet, let me help…”Come and knock on our door.”

Film Review: ‘The Witch’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

You’ll remember the name Robert Eggers from here on after. Eggers is a first time director who has been the talk of town since last year when he premiered his little horror film ‘The Witch‘ at Sundance. His Kubrickian eye and style for telling a story is as fresh and original as it is scary and authentic. ‘The Witch‘ won’t make you jump back in your seat or provide the cheap silly scares that you see in most modern day horror movies. Hell, it doesn’t even have a mild jog pacing. Instead, Eggers slowly builds the tension and suspense so much over the course of 90 minutes with horrifying images and characters, that you’ll want to cover your eyes in this story of witchcraft set in Puritan New England more than 400 years ago.

Film Review: ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

second-best-exotic-marigold-hotel

It’s been four years since the charming occupants first stepped into the Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and I’m here to tell you, that they are all still doing well. Director John Madden and his writer Ol Parker are back for this second trip to India with more or less the same tropes and conflicts from the first outing. ‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel‘ won’t change the game or genre, but it’s still filled with enough charm and laughs to satisfy you through its 122 minute run-time. If you’re new to this film franchise, the first film, ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel‘ focused a young guy named Sonny (Dev Patel) who opened up a pleasing and beautiful small hotel in the heart of India.

Tom Hardy Brings New Period-Drama Series To FX!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

peaky-blinders

Any project that combines Tom Hardy, Steven Knight and Ridley Scott is going to be wildly successful and any network should count themselves lucky to have this series in their entertainment stable. FX is the lucky recipient of the newest period drama series from the trio. ‘Taboo‘ will be set in 1813, a 100 year difference from the setting for ‘Peaky Blinders‘. The pair of series have more in common than being allegiant to their setting, BBC will produce both, Tom Hardy is cast in both and Steven Knight created the pair.

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Over the past hour, Ricky Gervais did a Q& A on HBO and we managed to get several questions in for the comedic genius to answer.  Ricky has a lot of projects coming up with some that are currently on HBO.  I had no idea Gervais wanted to get whacked on ‘The Sopranos’.  Catch his show ‘Life’s Too Short’ on HBO.   That’s genius.  Below is the full interview.  Enjoy.

Mark Millar Directs His First Film

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2010

Mark Millar is a name to etch in your brain from now on.  He is the one responsible for bringing us “Kick-Ass”.  He has also written comics such as “The Authority”, “The Ultimates”, “Wanted”, and “Civil War” to just name a few.  He has definitely proved himself to be one of the better writers out there.  And now he is hard at work this very minute on his directorial debut with  a movie called “Miracle Park”.  It will be a superhero thriller.   He also says it will be a cross between “Trainspotting” and  “X-Men”.

Millar said in an interview: “…we’re trying to do a superhero movie with the sensibilities of Paranormal activities and Cloverfield. It’s low budget mostly shot on a handheld camera dealing with superpowers…it is set in the suburbs of Scotland so it feels like Trainspotting meets X-Men.”

“Set in contemporary Scotland, this dark, unique superhero story focuses on a group of animal rights activists who break into a low-level research laboratory to find a mile-long underground base owned and facilitated by the US government…Miracle Park breaks all the taboos of superhero cinema and offers a completely new take on the genre…The movie is shot entirely on a hand-held camera, establishing a tone more consistent with Paranormal Activity or The Last Exorcism than a traditional superhero release.”

“Miracle Park is chilling, violent and a totally new experience in cinema. Miracle Park starts where other superhero movies draw the line.”

Millar hopes to get a trailer out be January.  So far Millar can do no wrong.
