Celebrate the Life of George Romero!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan and Jana here….

George A. Romero 1940-2017

What a sad day this is. Just the other day, I was thinking and hoping that George Romero had one more zombie film in him left. That’s not the case as the Godfather of the zombie genre and one of the best filmmakers in the horror genre has died today at the age of 77 from lung cancer. With the past few years, the zombie genre has infiltrated every form of media. The Walking Dead, Resident Evil, and tons zombie epics have come in the forms of comic books, TV shows, films, and video games. There wouldn’t be any of this, if it weren’t for George Romero who brought us a super small budget film in 1968 called Night of the Flesh Eaters, later changed to Night of the Living Dead, which gave us the zombie we know today.

Hillary Thomas’ Top 5 Films and Best TV Shows of 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

Best2015_660

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say? James Wallace knows that I like (“Sixteen Candles”, “Aliens”, “Big Trouble In Little China”, “True Grit”, and “Conan” just to name a few), but I did see a “Few Good Movies.”

Film Review: ‘The Last Witch Hunter’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Last-Witch-Hunter-Starring-VIn-Diesel-Rose-Leslie-and-Elijah-Wood

Just in time for Halloween, comes the latest action-horror movie, starring Vin Diesel, called ‘The Last Witch Hunter‘. With a budget of $90 million, you’ll be puzzled to see where all that money went after watching this awkward and slow-paced movie. Director Breck Eisner tries to weave a horror movie with some action set pieces, but the dialogue and script is fair at best, and besides the first five minutes of the film and the last ten minutes, nothing really happens.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Director Breck Eisner (‘The Crazies‘, ‘Sahara‘) directs Vin Diesel in a role as an immortal witch hunter. He is tasked with the job of coming between the covens of New York City and their goal to destroy humanity by way of a horrific plague. In order to accomplish this he must partner up with a beautiful female witch, something that he thought he would never do.

Jana’s Film Review of ‘Horns’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 28th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Horns-Character-Posters-Revealed

 

 

Daniel Radcliffe has distanced himself from the boy wizard he used to be and kicked type-casting in the teeth. He’s taken the theater world by storm appearing nude for ‘Equus‘, he’s led the show singing and dancing in ‘How To Achieve In Business Without Really Trying‘. From there he’s added to his film resume with the creepy ‘The Woman In Black‘, he was cast as Alen Ginsberg in ‘Kill Your Darlings‘ that was taken from true events. Radcliffe was paired with Jon Hamm to play the younger doctor to Hamm’s older doctor in ‘A Young Doctor’s Notebook‘, and grew horns from his head for the aptly titled ‘Horns‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

When it comes to Marvel comic-to-movie VS. DC comic-to-movie transformations, Marvel has a clear leading edge with interlaced storylines and sheer numbers that have been released. It pains me to type that because I am a DC fan. HUGE fan of DC characters, the heroes and their amazing villains. To me, the villains are absolute top notch and beat out anything Marvel can throw out. The colors, the histories, the wicked laughs and plots are perfectly my brand of crazy. Among these vivid characters that leap off the pages are Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and of course, The Joker.

Hello, Jana here,

Karate_kid_ver2

If you’re the star of a movie that makes $343,000,000 worldwide with a budget of only $40,000,000, you would be safe in betting there is a sequel in your future. If you’re Jaden Smith and you’re one half of the doomed project ‘After Earth‘ and a studio is still willing to bank heavily on you, you thank your lucky stars and say “yes”.  If you can get millions of people to look past the fact that the film is called ‘The Karate Kid‘ and features NO Karate, only Kung-Fu, then audiences deserve way less credit than I give them.  Of course I’m talking about the box office hit and re-make, ‘The Karate Kid‘. The director, Harald Zwart, will not be responsible for this venture as it appears he is going to be tied up with another sequel, ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes‘. Instead, Breck Eisner is taking the reigns. Eisner most recently directed ‘The Crazies‘ that starred Timothy Olyphant and Joe Anderson.

Hi Bryan Here…

This is a couple of days old, but if you do not listen to Howard then this will be freshly new to you.  I highly recommend you subscribe to Sirius XM and listen to Howard. He is the world’s greatest interviewer and one hell of a host.  Click Here to Subscribe and find out more.  So, actor Bill Murray was on the show and talked about his party life, films, people he has worked with, and all sorts of other topics.  What peaked my interest the most, was his upcoming films.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

Guide To Wave One Events at Fantastic Fest 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

ff2014-poster-web-geof-darrow__full

 

Fantastic Fest is one of the best film festivals in the U.S. not to mention the biggest. Everything there is awesome and amazing. Definitely the place to go if you love genre films as they feature the newest films from all categories featuring in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action  from all over. Some of the best and most loved films have had their world premieres at the festival. Hoping to take its place next to huge hits like ‘There Will Be Blood‘, ‘Zombieland‘ and ‘Apocalypto‘ is ‘Tusk‘. The oddly named flick comes from the brilliant and irreverent mind of Kevin Smith.

In this episode of ‘The Walking Dead‘, we finally get through most of the psychological issues that the characters had. There’s  some action and suspense in this episode, even a tiny bit of love.  Let’s get to it. The show starts out with Bob reminiscing back to where he was right before Glen and Daryl find him. He’s walking down a street alone when Daryl and Glen find him. Fast forward to present, Bob, Sasha and Maggie are in the fog fighting off walkers in a pretty cool scene. Sasha thinks that finding Glen is a lost cause and after going back and forth, they still continue to look for him. They see the sign for Terminus start walking there to find Glen. Sasha tells Bob how they need to set up camp and chill somewhere and the next morning, Maggie leaves them to do this alone. Bob and Sasha follow her.

Hi Bryan Here….

So we are talking about the film ‘Unknown’ here.  A film that stars Liam Neeson, January Jones, and Diane Kruger.  According to IMDB, ‘Unknown’ is about “A man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is.”  So there’s that.  Then there’s Boomstick’s newest contributor and writer….Shirtz.  Shirtz is the ambassador for the underground world of the occult and bizarre to our human society.  He has been everywhere and he has seen everything.  We are very happy to have him at Boomstick Comics from now on so give him a warm welcome, but be careful.  He bites.

I always look forward to seeing the next mockumentary Christopher Guest puts out.  He started out with This is Spinal Tap, and brought us other gems as Waiting For Guffman, Best In Show, A Mighty Wind, and For Your Consideration.

While some people didn’t care much for the last film, he still has made some of the funniest films out there with some great music as well.  I for one liked “For Your Consideration”.

Now after hearing this news that his next group of crazies he plans to mock is the group that collects old comic books, vintage records, old barbies and toys, and more.  Already I am laughing out loud at the premise.  Hopefully somebody like Comic-Book Guy from the Simpsons will be in the movie.

Guest will be joined by Harry Shearer and Michael McKean, two actors who have been with him since his Spinal Tap days (which they also co-wrote alongside him). No mention of Eugene Levy, however—though I imagine that he will remain as integral a part of the production as he’s ever been. In addition to starring in Guest’s films, Levy has also helped him write all of their screenplays. It would be regrettable if that wasn’t the case on this film as well.

Other Guest regulars include Jane Lynch, Parker Posey and John Michael Higgins, all of whom are being sought for the film. Lynch’s Glee schedule could pose a problem, but otherwise it’s likely that most of the gang will be returning.

We need Fred Willard, Eugene Levy,  and Catherine O’ Hara to sign on as well.  I am sure they will.
