Sofia Coppola’s interpretation of the real life events of a bunch of nobody kids stealing a bunch of expensive stuff from a bunch of nobody celebrities.  Then they got caught, got on the news a bit, got a story in Vanity Fair, and were pretty much back to being forgettable again until Coppola made her movie.

Beka’s Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo is a really fun film that wasn’t on my radar until I saw Joel Edgerton on a late night show and I’m so glad I did. Fresh off Red Sparrow, I saw him on Colbert and discovered he is hotter than you imagine, because he is Australian and also he has this other film, Gringo, which p.s., his brother Nash Edgerton directed. The cast is brimming with stars that are A listers and people that shine despite their lack of name recognition. Edgerton plays corporate dick, Richard Rusk, who is sleeping with everyone and has a general disregard for everything unless it benefits him. Charlize Theron plays Elaine Markinson, a rough woman “working” her way to the top who knows how to get what she wants. The standout however is David Oyelowo, who plays Harold Soyinka, a middle-management nobody whose life is crumbling at the hands of the two players above.

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo‘ follows a straight-laced business man named Harold (David Oyelowo) who works for a medical marijuana company run by Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron), who are planning a secret merger they don’t want Harold to discover.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Amy-Tina-467

I know I’m in the minority with my opinion on Tina Fey and Amy Poehler’s hosting gig on the Golden Globes. It’s over, been done, trite, stale, hackneyed, vapid, unoriginal, hack and incredibly cliched. I wasn’t a faithful ‘Saturday Night Live‘ viewer when they were starring and every year they host an awards show, I remember why. I’m not saying there isn’t value to the pair’s comedic talents, they shine in movies and I think that’s where they should be.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Julianne-Moore-as-Little-Mermaid-Annie-Leibovitz

Director Sofia Coppola is taking a new approach to her career in moving away from the more adult themes to a straight-on kids movie. She is signing her contract to direct a live-action adaptation of ‘The Little Mermaid‘ for Universal Pictures. The goal for this project is to fast track it to hopefully compete in 2015. Sofia has kids now, and like so many actors who are parents, tend to do more kid-centric films because of their little ones. Seems like Sofia is no different.

THE KING OF STATEN ISLAND – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2020

 

” The King of Staten Island is the next step in the heartfelt comedy world. “

Film Director Judd Apatow has an uncanny ability in telling a transformative story about a character who at first is rough and ragged around the edges, but by the end of the tale is a magnificent piece of human existence, willing and ready to be better, which is what most people strive for in life – – complete with unlimited humor. With Apatow’s latest film The King of Staten Island, the SNL funnyman Pete Davidson gives a hefty dose of his personal life that mixes perfectly with Apatow’s brand of comedy and storytelling about a 24-year-old man still struggling to deal with the death of his father when he was a child and navigating his mundane life, not realizing what wonderful elements are surrounding him. The King of Staten Island is poignant and significant in dealing with grief and growing up, along with some gleefully funny sequences that mold flawlessly with some heartfelt emotions in what is to be Apatow’s best film to date.

LOVE WEDDING REPEAT – Netflix Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2020

“Love Wedding Repeat is a film about a wild day at a wedding full of British humor, love, and plenty of dick jokes.”

It’s spring-time again and romance is in the air in many forms. Netflix is working overtime in this current lock-down and has released another invite to the romantic comedy genre with Love Wedding Repeat, starring Sam Claflin and Olivia Munn. In a sea of uncertainty in the real world, it’s always nice to see something witty, charming, if not a bit predictable in this new film about a wild day at a wedding full of British humor, love, and plenty of dick jokes.

ONWARD – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2020

“Onward is stale, despite some fantastic moments.”

Pixar is its own greatest enemy. With a rich and phenomenal history of movies since 1995’s Toy Story through Wall-E and Up, the cinematic bar was already at a high standard and it continued to grow and raise with each film. The storytelling, iconic characters, and wonderful messages and themes of growth, friendship, and love have excellent enlightenment and meaning for people of all ages. With the Dungeons & Dragons themed Onward, the overall feel is stale, despite some fantastic moments.

BLUE MAN GROUP – US Tour Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2020

The three blue beings are back on stage in a new show that rocks hard, spews color and senses until emit a big smile. Blue Man Group has been touring since the early 1990s, where they took the world by storm with their odd showcase. Imagine if you were watching STOMP on a far moon of Jupiter with tall blue aliens giving you their own version of rock n’ roll and comedy. That’s Blue Man Group and I’m hear to say that they are still having fun and creating inventive ways to entertain.
