I can’t believe it’s happening, but Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Schumer seem to be more than just vacationing buddies, as of late, they’re writing partners! It even gets better than that, the project they’ve been tearing through is a vehicle that will put the goofy, hilarious duo together on-screen, as well, sisters at that! Is this a new incarnation of the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler dynamic?

Hey guys, Jana here,

galaxyquest

Was there a better spoof comedy in 1999 than ‘Galaxy Quest‘? I’m gonna go ahead and say there wasn’t and Quest was the greatest thing since ‘Spaceballs‘. As far as space spoofs go, it was killer and it helped that Tim Allen starred. In the 90’s I was addicted to ‘Home Improvement‘ and couldn’t get enough of the comedian. I actually read both of his books and watched every show in syndication so many times that I could quote them in my sleep. With my love of Allen, it was a given I had to watch ‘Galaxy Quest‘, the bonus part was, it was an epic movie on its own!

Angelic Heel returning once more…

 

WWE‘s flagship program came to us from Newark, NJ and delivered an exciting evening filled with the hard hitting action we come to expect from RAW.

The WWE Universe got the answer and so much more as challenges were made, former champions were put in their place and supermen flew.

Robin Williams 1951-2014!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 11th, 2014

Jana here,

 

Robin Williams-AES-050543

 

 

This is a truly sad day. Robin Williams was found dead of an apparent suicide today. Williams was found dead in his Northern California home. The actor had been battling some pretty heavy depression lately and Williams had struggled with addiction earlier on in his career, but recently went to rehab to help maintain his sobriety, his rep said at the time. The rehab stint would have gone unnoticed, expect that the comedian opted to pose with a fan for a photo at a Dairy Queen near the facility, and the picture eventually went viral.

Hi, Jana here,

Awesome news! The tag-team duo that brought us ‘Bridesmaids‘ is back! Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo are taking celluloid for another spin. ‘Bridesmaids‘ became a slightly unexpected hit on a global scale for being a female-driven comedy. The upcoming flick is going to team Wiig and Mumolo  as writers again, but they will also produce, star and Wiig is going to try her hand at directing the project which is going to be a first effort for the comedian. TriStar Productions is backing the production and they have described the film as the story of “best friends who find themselves in over their heads and out of their depths, which were, perhaps, not too deep to begin with.”  No release date has been set.

Josh Gad Teaming Up With Disney Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

8065JoshGad800

When we talk about ‘Frozen‘ a few things probably jump to mind. Be it the icy tundra it’s set in, the fantastic, albeit overplayed ‘Let it Go‘, or the comic relief that is either Olaf the hug-loving snowman or how John Travolta stumbled over the name Idina Menzel during the Academy Awards that created memes and quizzes as far as the eye could see.

Hello, Jana here,

simpsons-family-couch

Which TV show has been on air for 25 years and has just been sold into syndication for a whopping $750 million? If you answered ‘The Simpsons‘ you were right. The newly announced sister network to FX, FXX is going to begin airing with the animated satire. If you’re starting a new broadcast and want to get viewer attention a series marathon is always a good way to do it. If you want the network to be talked about you plan a 12-day marathon that comprises 552 episodes. The high price-tag for the series will not only give network syndication rights, but a first time availability for on-demand viewing.

Hi, Jana here,

 

celeb-sibling---John-Belushi

 

Normally when I hear John Belushi’s name, I smile as I remember Jake Blues from ‘The Blues Brothers‘ ordering four fried chickens with a Coke, or his turn as John Blutarsky in ‘Animal House‘ as he incites a food fight. One thing I didn’t expect to hear in association with his name is that he is the subject of an upcoming biopic.

Film Review: ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

ANCHORMAN 2: THE LEGEND CONTINUES

Almost a decade later, we have received a sequel to the cult comedy hit, ‘Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy‘, which might have not performed all so well at the box office back in 2004, but has become an instant classic on home video. In these past years, we have seen nearly every actor from that film become super stars with a giant fan-base that has been quoting their dialogue from their film all those years ago. Well, we’re here with ‘Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues‘, and I’m here to say that there are enough gut busting laughs for three entire feature films, and I expect this sequel to boast huge ratings and numbers at the box office come this holiday.

DVD Review: ‘Impractical Jokers Season 1’!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

NEjF8nL4M0YNmr_1

THE FILM

I had never heard of  ‘Impractical Jokers‘ before I was sent this DVD to watch. This first season debuted on TruTV, and features four best friends who pull pranks and jokes on themselves and the general public with hidden cameras. It’s like ‘Candid Camera‘ meets ‘Kenny vs. Spenny‘, and should give you and your group of sick and twisted friends some fun ideas to pull on each other or unsuspecting friends and family. At the end of the day, this isn’t anything new or original, but packs some good laughs and keeps you watch to see what they’ll do next.

Bugs Bunny Takes Over the Dallas Symphony Orchestra!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 7th, 2012

Claire, Here….

Last night, a new instrument accompanied the regular menagerie of Dallas Symphony Orchestral musicians as they performed the musical accompaniment to Looney Tunes. It was the intermittent, but well punctuated chorus of children’s laughter coming from the audience that made this performance timeless. The audience’s participation and audible reaction to the performance allowed us to connect intimately with the performers, and together, we created something greater than the sum of us combined. It was a worthy homage to the iconic works of Chuck Jones.

Trailer Analysis – The Hunger Games

by Justin Cline on Nov 17th, 2011

Translating a book–especially a popular one–to the big screen is a tricky thing.  If you’re in need of confirmation on this, just look to the Harry Potter series, where the movies were just as often accused of getting it wrong as they were praised for getting it right.  Should the filmmakers be more concerned with producing a good movie or being slavishly reverent to the source material?  That’s a difficult question to answer.  For my money, the film must be able to stand on its own while not entirely disavowing the core of what made it popular in the first place.  The cast and crew must continuously walk a fine line between winning over a new audience and alienating the old one.

That having been said, let’s take a look at the most recent trailer for The Hunger Games. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2018

Comedians have routinely had a tough time shaking their labels as depthless clowns, but lately some are rejecting that type-cast in cinema and using their own material to change the minds of the public. Breaking away from his best known work as Jim in ‘The Office’, John Krasinski followed Jordan Peele’sGet Out‘ lead by taking the director’s role for the opposite end of the spectrum: Horror. His cleverly silent debut thriller ‘A Quiet Place’ has inexorable intensity, satisfying character development and bona fide heartbreak. Not since ‘Signs’ has there been such a fascinatingly atmospheric creature feature!

In the daytime of the night, Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement, who make up the duo that is the hilarious ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ are coming back to HBO for a one-hour special of music and comedy later this year. The comedic pair will perform new and old songs on their upcoming comedy tour, which will be filmed in front of a sold out audience in the UK. This is just excellent news and I hope the two will have future specials and even a new show after the success of this upcoming one. I wonder if there will be a new Bowie song or a sequel to ‘Business Time’. I hope so.

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.

Film Review: ‘Kevin Hart What Now?’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

8P05_D002_00556 In Universal Pictures’ Kevin Hart: What Now?, comedic rockstar KEVIN HART follows up his 20 13 hit standup concert movie Let Me Explain, which grossed $32 million domestically and became the thirdhighest live standup comedy movie of all time. Hart takes center stage in this groundbreaking, recordsetting, soldout performance of “What Now?”—filmed outdoors in front of 50,000 people at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Financial Field—marking the first time a comedian has ever performed to an atcapacity football stadium. Credit: Frank Masi

 

An extended opening title sequence takes you through, Kevin Hart, a wannabe James Bond, literally a direct rip of various Bond films. The graphics were pretty cool. Enter the dramatic casino satire, an over-the-top, talking over others’ lines testament to the lunacy of Kevin Hart, Agent 0054. Next comes the stand-up concert that is the meat of Kevin Hart What Now? Hart shoots out of the stage in Trinity (yes, Matrix rip) style and the show begins.

I’m sure there is a formula for success and the host is key. Hoping to have figured out that recipe, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin have asked Chris Rock back to host the 88th Academy Awards.

One of the genre’s I adore in film is an excellent biographical depiction. It doesn’t matter who the subject is, I love the truthful way these films are usually made and like seeing the story unfold, event at a time. What struggles they’ve gone through to become who they are, it’s the intimate details that I genuinely crave. A successful biopic depends on the character and quality of its written source material as it’s vital to the core of a project. Such will be the case with the planned Groucho Marx flick.

Monkeys, Tina Fey, and a series of calamitous frolicking couldn’t be anything, but a delightful time.  Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom follows Maya, a lowborn female monkey, through her journey to challenge the caste system.  The highborn, The Sisterhood (Queens), three female monkeys with red splattered faces, is given the best food, lodging, grooming, obedience, and fear.  Slightly lower than The Queens is Raja, the highest born alpha male monkey.  Far underneath The Queens and Raja and still other levels of lieutenants and random monkeys is sweet Maya.  Like any human would, Maya endeavors to make a better life for herself and was fearless in her pursuit of it.

With the success of the ‘Hot Tub Time Machine‘, both critically and financially, it made sense to make a sequel. Well that time has come and original director and writer Steve Pink and Josh Heald have conjured up more or less a similar story, but this time with more gross out humor and less 80’s pop culture references. Instead of going back in time, the gang minus John Cusack jumps in the tub and end up in the year 2025 in New Orleans, where it looks more like 2015 with the exception of pets flying on hover boards and automobiles acting like humans.

David-Cross-Hits-BitTorrent-Bundle-600x369

Dallas is one of the major spokes that makes the filmmaking wheel go round, so it stands to reason that the city would play host to cutting edge and experimental gimmicks for audience testing. That’s exactly what new filmmaker and comedian, David Cross, is currently doing.

As we all knew would happen, ‘Star Trek 3‘ is on the horizon, even without the guidance of J.J. Abrams. Director Justin Lin (‘Fast and the Furious’) has taken the con after Roberto Orci left the project. Orci was a writer for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ before he was tapped to direct the third installment. The director isn’t the only change in the project from the last film as the writing team that will be putting pen to paper is undergoing some staff re-vamps, too.

Film Review: ‘A Trip To Italy’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

maxresdefault

 

I’ve always wanted to take a trip to Italy. I’ve dreamed of seeing where my family came from, quenching my thirst on some fine Italian wine, hiking up the hills and looking out at the ocean, gaining thirty pounds on some of the best food I know I will eat, and of course, re-enact scenes from ‘The Godfather II‘ to pay homage to my family who came from Sicily. I figure by sailing on the open ocean to a good restaurant or spending the day at a wine vineyard, I might just end up moving and living there. And Michael Winterbottom’sThe Trip to Italy‘ made me want to fast track this goal.

‘Ant-Man’ Begins Production and Fills Out Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

1608470801_1355278853

 

 

 

Today marks the beginning of filming for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. It has been a winding road getting to this point though. There has been a change in director and the loss of 3 cast-members due to scheduling issues because of delays. Some of us probably thought it would be a miracle of Marvel proportions if it were to ever make it to the big screen. Some of the reason for doubt stems from the fact that original director Edgar Wright had been working on bringing the 2D superhero to life since 2006 with very limited success.

Bill Cosby Coming To Netflix!!!

Netflix is a good place to turn if you want to laugh. Besides their movies and TV shows that can cause you to crack a rib with laughter, they’ve always had a fairly decent supply of live performances by our favorite comedians. I just watched Sherri Shepherd’s stand-up on Netflix, ‘It’s My Time To Talk‘ a few days ago and thought it was one of the most brilliant bits of comedy I’ve seen in a long time.

Comedian and star of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘, Larry David is taking the Broadway stage by storm when he debuts in the spring starring in his own, autobiographical play. In ‘Fish In The Dark‘, which he describes as a comedy about a death in a family, the ‘Seinfeld‘ mastermind will play “somebody very similar to Larry David – it might even be Larry David with a different name” he told the Times.

We were teased with knowledge it was being put together, we were tormented when we got to do the reddit live Q&A with the legends. Now it’s almost so close I can taste it! If you’re unsure of who I’m talking about let’s talk about how a 5-ounce bird possibly carry a 1-pound coconut? If you still are unsure of who this great group of people are, you should be banished. But seriously, this material has been around for 40 years, you should have to face the Black Knight. Don’t worry about his appearance, it’s just a flesh wound.

The Discovery Channel’sShark Week‘ 2014 is coming up soon, and since SyFy changed the entire Shark game last year with the incredible ‘Sharknado‘, they are jumping on the bandwagon with ‘Sharknado Week‘, which will show the first film, and premiere the sequel ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One‘, along with Roger Corman’s new film ‘Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda‘. I of course expect a few other amazing programs to be announced. But we do know that ‘Sharknado 2‘ will debut on July 30th, and the Corman film will air on July 26th. I can only imagine that Discovery is not too happy with this announcement, but hey, ‘Sharknado Week’  sounds pretty awesome!

Neighbors-Movie-Still-1

Let me start off this review by saying comedy movies have gone straight downhill in the past 10 years. I don’t know what demographic survey told movie studios that we wanted our comedies with a side of moral lesson, but this girl, for one, HATES my comedies anywhere near a moral lesson (I’m looking at you ‘Bridesmaids‘).  I truly miss the golden era of Adam Sandler films and comedy recordings. Sometimes settling into a good dick and fart joke film is just what you need. Don’t think about the humor, it’s just funny!

Hello, Jana here,

Anchorman_2_David_Koechner

David Koechner, is much more than the perfect guy to deliver a huge laugh or to set someone else up for the delivery. He’s got a face you instantly recall in the midst of a good memory of a great scene.  Actor, director, writer, producer and all around funny man. He’s got tons of credits up his sleeve including the blockbuster hilarity inducing ‘Anchorman‘ and it’s sequel. He’s recently had director co-writer Christopher Landon pitching woo at him for Paramount’s upcoming horror-comedy about Boy Scouts who try to fend off a zombie attack, and protect their  Girl Scouts, in their small town. ‘Scouts Vs. Zombies‘ sees Koechner joining a cast comprised of Joseph Morgan (‘Master and Commander’, ‘The Vampire Diaries’, ‘Immortals’), Tye Sheridan (‘The Tree of Life’, ‘Mud’) , Logan Miller (‘Growing Up Fisher’, ‘Night Moves’),  Andy Fickman, Todd Garner, Bryan Brucks and Betsy Sullenger

 sasheer-zamata-michelle-obama

Big news from Saturday Night Live. Sasheer Zamata is the newest regular cast member to be signed to the NBC comedy staple. There are six new comedians being added this year. Instead of focusing on Zamata’s laughable qualities, the focus is on her sex and race. There has been massive criticism that the new batch of SNL cast members lacks not only minorities, but specifically the inclusion of Zamata, who is African American.  Lorne Michaels has been looking into black female comedians for some time now. Kerry Washington’s guest hosting episode saw her run ragged running from skit to skit playing a number of roles from Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey and Beyonce. Of the six new comedians coming on board this season all are white but Noel Wells who is Hispanic-Tunisian. There are only 2 African-Americans already anchored in their positions on the late night sketch show.

Good news, everyone. FX Networks has just made a giant deal with comedian and actor Louis CK. We already know and love the excellent series titled ‘Louie‘, which is already on FX, but this new deal has Louis and his production company developing new pilots and whole series for the network. What’s that mean? It means that we will be getting new comedy shows where Louis CK will star and or produce.

The current theme with television series these days is they are either pointless, mind-numbing, IQ lowering reality shows, or big cable network sponsored in-depth series. I’m glad that it seems the sweeping series are becoming more the norm. Robert Kirkman, creator of The Walking Dead is adding to his stable of excellent tv offerings with Outcast. No, this isn’t going to be about a leper that is ostracized from the community, or even more zombies that are a threat to the brain functioning population. This time  we step into the world of exorcisms.

Film Review: ‘Blue Jasmine’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 bluejasmine_promo1

Move over Meryl Streep, Cate Blanchett has earned the Best Actress throne with this one. Woody Allen is one of the most prolific filmmakers in the last 100 years and despite his age, he continues to push out an original film each and every year. This latest one called ‘Blue Jasmine‘ fairs better than some of his recent efforts and leaves a longer lasting impression than most of his films. With one hell of cast that is comprised of several comedians, and Allen’s beautiful eye that captures the true essence of a city and harsh identity of his characters, this little film might be his best at the box office yet.

Rich Wilkes wrote the script based on the book ‘Brother Sam‘, by Bill Kinison. This is amazing news, folks. One of the greatest comedians ever to grace the stage and make us laugh is receiving the proper treatment.

Film Review: ‘This is the End’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 this_is_the-end

Car crashes, explosions, decapitations, exorcisms, the apocalypse, and tons of dick jokes make up Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen’sThis is the End‘. And I can say that it’s the most fun I’ve had at the movies in ten years. In this dark comedy, we have the entire Apatow clan plus many more cameos of our favorite comedians who all play themselves as they take on the end of days. It’s genuine, gut-bustingly funny, sick, crude, and self-deprecating, which all results in the likes of a twisted reality show, complete with solo interviews with a camera scattered throughout the movie. I anticipate a large opening weekend with a long lasting power after ‘Man of Steel‘ releases later this week.

Hi, Bryan Here….

girl-friend-articleLarge

I have been a fan of Birbiglia’s for a while now.  I loved his spots and stories on NPR’sThis American Life‘ where he talked about his comedy and his rare sleep disorder, which causes him to physically act out his dreams. And I loved his recent film ‘Sleepwalk With Me‘, which is based on a segment of his life, particularly his college girlfriend and his entrance to the comedy world. Seeing Birbiglia live was not only one of the funniest and most entertaining shows I’ve seen (and I’ve seen the some of the greats; Carlin, Chappelle, Saget, Dunham, Louis C.K.), it’s an incredible experience, full of laughs, awkward memories, and romance.  I wish I could buy a ticket for every person on Earth to see Mike Birbiglia live.

‘Film Review: ‘A Haunted House’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

A-Haunted-House-585x370

I’ll be honest, I was dreading going to see this film, despite its trailer looking decent.  I mean, how often have we not laughed at recent comedy films with a Wayans brother attached to it.  Back several years ago, I’m sure we would all agree they were making some of the funniest films out there, but as of recent, their movies have been lacking.    But I’m very happy to say that after I walked out of the theater from viewing ‘A Haunted House‘, my cheeks  hurt from laughter.  Yes, it’s silly, stupid, and insane, but man, I laughed from start to finish, which is rare. I can easily say that ‘A Haunted House‘ is the funniest film I’ve seen since ‘Ted‘.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Sleepwalk With Me’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Sleepwalk With Me’ is the sleeper hit of the year.  Back a few years ago,  genius comedian Mike Birbiglia added a long monologue to his stand-up comedy routine called ‘Sleepwalk With Me’. In it, he talks about his real-life sleeping disorder called REM Behavior Disorder where he literally acts out his dreams.  Sometimes, they have serious and painful consequences.  In ‘Sleepwalk With Me’, Birbiglia takes his story a bit further as he plays himself with a different name.  He plays Matt Pandamiglio, a rookie stand-up comedian in New York who has been with his girlfriend Abby (Lauren Ambrose) going on almost a decade now.  As his comedy career starts to take off, Matt struggles with committing to Abby.  ‘Sleepwalk With Me’ is not only warm, inviting, and charming, but it’s one of the funniest films of the year.

Bryan Reviews ‘Annie Hall’ Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Annie Hall’ is finally on blu-ray and that is good news folks.  But at least for me, it’s bittersweet good news.  Sadly, like most or all Woody Allen dvd’s or blu-rays, this does not have any extras besides the trailer.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a commentary by Allen on ‘Annie Hall’?  But, with that said, this is the best the film has looked and should be in everyone’s collection.  ‘Annie Hall’ is a comedic masterpiece of love, loss, and wit.  One of the best films of all time.

CBS has greenlit a pilot for a show called ‘Super Fun Night’ written by and starring Australian actress-comedian Rebel Wilson (Bridesmaids).   The series follows three nerdy female friends on their ”funcomfortable” quest to have super fun every Friday night.This will be a multi camera series which means there is a high possibility of a laugh track.  Not to keen on those these days, but I have been surprised before.  This is the first multi camera show to be picked up by CBS this season.

We don’t have to wait too much longer.  AMC’s period drama ‘Mad Men’ will return for Season 5 on March 25th.

“One for each other and all for one.  The three brave amigos are we.”  I was so excited that this finally came out on bluray.  I loved this John Landis film growing up.  I still quote this movie to this day.  That trio of great comedic actors of Steve Martin, Chevy Chase, and Martin Short has never been rivaled to this day in my opinion.  This movie was an instant classic.  Tons of songs, shootouts, and tons of great comedy pack this film with enough laughs to last a lifetime.  You know you are doing the Amigo salute right now.  Admit it.

There is going to be a Prequel to the Watchmen!!!

Hi Bryan Here….

More Watchmen???  Not sure how I feel about this, but DC is hardcore in production of a mini series of a prequel to the Watchmen.  Currently the title is called ‘Panic Room’, but I’m sure that is just to keep super fans off the scent.  I’m sure it will change.  And it looks like Adam and Joe Kubert will be drawing some of the books.  As well as J.G. Jones will lend his talent to the artistry.  DC is keeping a pretty tight seal on info about the book and who knows what Gibbons and Alan Moore have to say.  But I will say I am excited and annoyed by all of this at the same time.  Our friends Bleeding Cool got some quick shots of some of the artwork for your enjoyment.

Fox to Take On Hannibal! …Burress. From Jonah Hill!!!

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

(Warning: You’re not getting through this article without cannibal jokes.)

Fox has bought Jonah Hill’s sitcom, starring stand-up comedian Hannibal Burress, with a blind script commitment plus penalty. The format – single- or multi-camera – has not yet been determined, but the show will bring Burress’ performing chops to television for the first time. Burress has written episodes of both Saturday Night Live and 30 Rock (and there have been no strange disappearances from either) as well as stood up for Comedy Central and David Letterman, but has not yet had his own shtick in a sitcom.
