Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

No, I don’t think so, but Kevin James has signed on to star in an inspirational drama film about football. That’s right, the guy who is seen in most Adam Sandler films and the mall-cop named Paul Blart is going to the drama genre in a film called ‘44‘, distributed by Warner Bros. and Alcon Entertainment.

Check Out The Trailer For ‘The Big Short’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 22nd, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Big Short‘ comes from director Adam McKay, and if you’re familiar with his films and Will Ferrell, you know the two go hand in hand. ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy‘ and the sequel, ‘Step Brothers‘, ‘Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby‘ and more, this project takes a departure from the funny and drops hip-deep into the dramatic.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

When you look at the raging success of films ‘Moneyball‘ and ‘The Blind Side‘, besides being highly bankable projects, they have another thing in common, both began as a novel that flowed from the pen of author Michael Lewis. When Paramount Pictures turned its creative eye towards another Lewis novel, ‘The Big Short‘, it came as no surprise that several acting giants have agreed to headline the adaptation, together.

Jana B. here,

Image: A protester reacts as the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi burns

How do we know what took place when we were not there to witness an event? We wait for the movie to come out. The more common way is we wait for the book to come out, then someone writes a movie based off the actual events. Historical movies make big money so it’s not surprising that a book describing the first hand account of the Benghazi attack is in the works. It’s also not surprising that Paramount is already negotiating to purchase film rights to the book that hasn’t even been released, yet.

Bryan’s ‘Mirror Mirror’ Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 29th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I didn’t know what quite to expect from ‘Mirror Mirror’.  I have seen the trailers and have compared them to the other Snow White film coming out this year (Snow White and the Huntsman), and immediately knew that ‘Mirror Mirror’ was the sillier of the two.  Did I hate ‘Mirror Mirror’?  No.  Did I like ‘Mirror Mirror’? No.  ‘Mirror Mirror’ is a foolish yet whimsical film based on Disney’s classic, Snow White.  I have no doubt that ‘Mirror Mirror’ will be eaten up by kids under 12, but if your age is above that of a 6th grader, then you might find yourself angry that you bought a ticket.

Hi Bryan Here….

Here is the first casting news from the remake of The Evil Dead.  Yes, to recap, Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell, and Rob Tapert will all be producing this remake.  But a new director, Fede Alvarez, is directing who really hasn’t done anything before, and they hired Diablo Cody (writer for Juno) to pen the script.  Now it seems they have cast their Ash.  And it seems to be a girl according to Bloody Disgusting.

Film Review: ‘Tolkien’!!

by Janet White on May 10th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

“Even the smallest person can change the course of history.” – Lady Galadriel

 

Amazing words that continue to inspire people years after John Ronald Reuel Tolkien aka J. R. R. Tolkien’s (Nicholas Hoult) passing. From a very young age, Tolkien was a dreamer. Encouraged by his theatrical mother with her animated storytelling, Tolkien portrays its namesake as a person simultaneously living in two different worlds nearly all of the time. Set in England and France, the viewer gains insight into Tolkien’s beginnings and influences. Books were his constant companion that provided an escape from losing his father and later his mother. It is no wonder that Tolkien went on to write two of the most complex and fantastical books of all time. As an orphan, Tolkien meets the love of his life, Edith Bratt (Lily Collins) and his quest to find love, thrive in college, and eventually establish himself in a career takes off from there.

Film Review: ‘American Made’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Cocaine is a hell of a drug. Globally, it is the second most popular and in the ’80’s, it was king. And Director Doug Liman wants you to know that one American is partly responsible for not only the narcotic’s rise in popularity, but also for fueling one of the largest cartels in global history. In the new action biopic, ‘American Made‘, Tom Cruise flies high and returns to familiar aviation territory as Barry Seal, a TSA pilot turned drug smuggler. This role really puts Tom back into his adventurous element and is easily one of his best performances in recent memory. He proves that his charm and charisma isn’t lost, and personal judgements aside, sometimes it takes crazy to play crazy.

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #5!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

baseball-game-ofotcn

Was Randle McMurphy a hero or an anti-hero. It’s a fine line for sure, but I’d like to think R.P. McMurphy was a good guy deep down, even though he was a bit off-kilter. In fact, it’s been stated and written down many times before that his arch rival Nurse Ratched is one of the most horrific villains in movie history. McMurphy, played by a 30-something Jack Nicholson is an amazing character. He’s passionate, creative, fun, spontaneous, and has no filter with what he thinks or says. Some would say he is a genius in this regard. Hell, he did convince a ton of people that himself and the rest of the psychiatric patients were indeed famous professors and doctors to the townsfolk as they stole a boat and went sailing.
