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.

Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

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. In order for the merger to go through, they must clean up the books at their Mexican facility which has been selling a “weed pill” to a cartel leader to help the company financially.

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.

Iron Sky: The Coming Race – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2019

 

“Iron Sky: The Coming Race is a fun-as-hell movie.”

In 2012, Finnish filmmaker Timo Vuorensola, gave us the film ‘Iron Sky‘, which was about the defeated Nazi soldiers from WWII, who somehow retreated to the dark side of the moon, built a home base, and prepped to bring a big war back to Earth in 2018. Oh what a fun movie that was. It even became a cult hit amongst the horror genre crowd. Some seven years later, Timo took to the crowdfunding sites and brought in enough cash to make a sequel called ‘Iron Sky: The Coming Race‘.  Oddly, this is the only film he’s done since the first ‘Iron Sky‘ movie and I can’t figure out why, because both these films are visually great and pack a ton of fun and action from start to finish. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want more from Timo Vuorensola.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.
