Feb/2018

Hi Bryan Here….

I am so delighted to be seeing this on DVD for the first time.  I love watching old cartoons from the 60’s.  And ‘Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles’ was so much fun.  There were only two seasons with less than 20 episodes in all, but the rock music/action hero cartoon packed each episode with tons of great fun.  It reminds me of ‘Fraggle Rock’ meets ‘Partridge Family’ in the vein of Hanna-Barbera.  This cartoon series also made for some of the most bizarre animated sequences I might have ever seen.  I witnessed a giraffe running upright on two legs with a gun and jumps into an art easel to disappear.  No, I was not on that acid you gave me last year.  Just loads of Dr. Pepper.

I am sure you have heard of ILM before or at least seen it in the credits for just about every movie made.  It is the amazing effects company started by Star Wars creator George Lucas 35 years ago.  It was started to create the effects for Star Wars and quickly became the premiere effects company in Hollywood and is virtually in every film in some form or another.

So the Encore movie channel will be airing a documentary in November about the ILM company.  It will be narrated by Tom Cruise and will feature interviews by major actors and directors.

The press release says:

ENCORE PAYS VISUAL TRIBUTE TO OSCAR®-WINNING VISUAL EFFECTS GIANT ILM IN CELEBRATION OF THEIR 35TH ANNIVERSARY WITH ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY “INDUSTRIAL LIGHT & MAGIC: CREATING THE IMPOSSIBLE”

Tom Cruise Narrates Doc Premiering November 14, 2010
Marathon of Five ILM-Effects Films on Encore

Beverly Hills, CA., September 14, 2010 – Since its founding 35 years ago, Industrial Light & Magic has been the movie industry’s undisputed leader in groundbreaking visual effects, thrilling audiences and making hits into blockbusters. On Sunday, November 14 at 8:00 p.m. (et/pt), Encore presents an original documentary celebrating that legacy. “Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible” is directed by Academy Award® and Emmy® nominated director Leslie Iwerks and is narrated by Tom Cruise. Encore will also present five ILM-effects films starting at 2:00 p.m. with Jumanji, followed by Hook, Jurassic Park III, Twister and Starship Troopers.

The hour-long special has interviews with filmmakers George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard,  J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Robin Williams, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and John Lasseter, the chief  creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.  Film and television shows featured in the special include The Abyss, Avatar, Forrest Gump, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Robot Chicken, Star Trek (2009), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Transformers, Twister, Young Sherlock Holmes and The War of the Worlds (2005), which starred narrator Cruise.

Leslie Iwerks’ documentary takes audiences behind the scenes at ILM with in depth interviews with some of the company’s top talent and showcases never before seen footage highlighting many of their pioneering milestones. From creating the first ever computer generated character in a feature film to the latest advancements in visual effects for film franchises like Transformers and Iron Man, ILM has created some of the most memorable movie moments in recent history.

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) is a division of Lucasfilm Ltd. and was founded by George Lucas in 1975 to create the visual effects for his space epic Star Wars. The studio originated in Van Nuys, California but moved to San Rafael, California to work on The Empire Strikes Back and is now headquartered at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio of San Francisco with a sister studio in Singapore.

ILM has worked on nearly 300 films in its 35 year history and has largely been the driving force behind the evolution of modern visual effects.  From the liquid metal man in Terminator 2: Judgment Day to the lifelike digital dinosaurs in Jurassic park, ILM has created some of the most iconic moments in cinematic history.

ILM has received 15 Best Visual Effects Oscars and 25 additional nominations. It has also received 23 Scientific and Technical Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in recognition of the critical role the company’s advances in technology have played in the filmmaking process. ILM is also the only entertainment company to be recognized with the National Medal of Technology.

I just hope it is an depth look at the company and not a broad view of it.  I will be recording it.

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 29th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

bmw-in-mission-impossible-5-rogue-nation_100505432_l

A couple of years later from ‘Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol‘, we have Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his team, consisting of Benji (Simon Pegg), William (Jeremy Renner), and Luther (Ving Rhames) on a mission to acquire a certain dangerous cargo that is about to take off in a military airplane. I’m sure you’ve seen the trailers by now to know that Tom Cruise did indeed do his own stunts again, including actually hanging off the edge of airplane as it took off high in the sky. This is the opening scene to ‘Rogue Nation‘, the fifth film in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ franchise that ignites the bomb and iconic theme song.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Mission-Impossible-Rogue-Nation-poster

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation‘ sees Ethan Hunt and crew team up to wipe out The Syndicate, an international organization matching their highly evolved skills. With each one dedicated to take the other out of the game, the pic has to be packed with action, that’s what the trailer points to, it also shows a rather creative way to make a weapon from a flute, I’m impressed, and love what I saw!

And it’s now starting to branch out into the art scene.  For last 2 years Mondo Gallery, a collectible art boutique with a rabid fan base and part of the uber popular Alamo Drafthouse, has had gallery openings during SXSW with lines of buyers, stretching for blocks, waiting for hours, and in some cases, days.

Hi Bryan Here….

So it has been a few years since the J.J. Abrams directed Mission Impossible 3 film which was actually really good.  Phillip Seymour Hoffman did an amazing job in the film, and Tom Cruise was fun to watch.  This film looks to amp up everything from the 3rd film to the 11th degree, but is that a smart move?  Only time will tell.  I hope you enjoy the trailer.  I hated the pink/eminem song in it, but when they got that Mission Impossible theme in there, I admit, I got giddy.  The film opens in December of this year.

“LOST” Actor Joins Cast of Mission Impossible 4

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2010

Josh Halloway who played Sawyer on LOST has joined Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner for the 4th installment of Mission Impossible.

Filming begins soon in Dubai with Brad Bird directing.  Brad Bird directed Pixar’s The Incredibles and Ratatouille.  It will be interesting to see how he takes on this franchise.  I have faith in him.

Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames will be returning as the IMF team members as well as J.J. Abrams who directed the third film will be taking on the role as producer as well as coming up with the story.

Film Review: ‘Roman J. Israel Esq.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2017

Roman J. Israel, Esq. won’t be a box office hit, and if you aren’t black or a lawyer or somewhere in that venn-diagram, you probably aren’t wanting to go see it. But you should. If you’ve ever had a forgotten dream, no matter what your profession is or the color of your skin, you will identify with Roman. It’s uncomfortable to watch, it’s heartbreaking at times, but there’s laughter and Denzel Washington. Denzel is superb.  And honestly, Collin Farrell has redeemed himself in my eyes from The Lobster, so there’s really no reason to cast this one aside.

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘. Each film will come with HDR as well, meaning a richer and deeper looking image for each movie. Each film will feature extras, the standard Blu-ray Disc, and Digital Copies of each movie. The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

Film Review: ‘Ghostbusters’ (2016)

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

ghostbusters-2016-cast-proton-packs-images

Paul Feig certainly has quite the resume. This writer/director/producer has recently made some of the funnier films, including ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘The Heat‘, ‘Spy‘, and let’s not forget the hit TV series ‘Freaks and Geeks‘. Feig knows comedy and how to cast his roles perfectly. Each one of those films and a tv show are spot on hilarious with charm and heart. This same filmmaker has pretty much done the impossible, which is revamp the iconic 1980’s film ‘Ghostbusters’. Even before the first trailer for the movie debuted online, there was a sea of online people who trashed the film even before seeing one single frame of the film. It became a whole thing where sexism became one of the issues here.

Janet W., Here…

the-gunman-sean-penn

Spicoli, is that you? My what a long way Sean Penn has come.  Well-known for his comedic stony surfer dude role in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Penn has also become quite the dramatic actor.  As Harvey Milk in Milk and Brad Whitewood Jr. in At Close Range Penn displayed his acting brilliance.  Is there a type of role this man cannot do?  Well, now I can say I love him as an action star.  In The Gunman, Penn (Jim Terrier) roars deadly prowess from his buffed up physique.  I was amazed at how hot he looked.  I’ve admired his performances before, but Penn shows me a different side in more ways than one.

Big sacrifices and the desire to be the best in the world with your skill and art form is both questioned and put to the test in writer/director Damien Chazelle’s phenomenal jazz-infused film ‘Whiplash‘. This movie is focused on jazz music, but closes in on what one individual will go through to be the best in the world with the difficult question being, “Is it worth it?”

Jason Reitman, well known for modern classics such as “Juno” and “Up in the Air” takes a drastic turn with his newest film, “Labor Day.”  Though Reitman usually hits us with his own special blend of comedy and misery that is somehow equally lighthearted and cynical, you can expect none of that here.

We all knew that we were getting a sequel to the zombie smash hit ‘World War Z‘, since the first film made over $540 million dollars. There is much more to tell in that whole universe, which was though up by Mel Brooks‘ son, Max Brooks, who wrote the book. The first film was directed by Marc Forster and starred Brad Pitt, but now the studio has chosen a different director, which is Juan Antonio Bayona.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

Bryan Reviews ‘War Horse’ Blu-Ray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….


In never got a round to catching Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ in the theatres.  I heard a lot of people enjoyed it, but it really wasn’t at the top of my list.  Overall. I enjoyed the film quite a bit.  It’s done very well on ever level, but that’s Spielberg.  I really expected a movie about horse, but it was more about the different characters the horse encounters during the war and how the horror of war-times effects each individual.  The audio and video on this bluray are top notch with a few good extras.  If you were a fan of the film, a Spielberg enthusiast, or a war movie buff, then this bluray is for you.

Anything ‘Doctor Who’, count me in.  Ever since BBC decided to revamp the series, it has created a mass fan base and has become, for the second time, a huge cult classic.  I was very excited to watch the first seven episodes of Season Six of ‘Doctor Who’.  Such an imaginative, creative, and fun as all hell television series.  Having ‘Doctor Who’ on blu-ray in Hi-Def is like having chocolate cake covered in Lucky Charms every day for two years.  It’s that amazing.  Highest possible recommendation on this release from Warner.

‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ is coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

One of my favorite and Top movies of 2017 is coming to Blu-ray on January 23rd. Of course, I’m talking about ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘ from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). The film stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Barry Keoghan. I have described this movie as a sibling to Stanley Kurbick’s film ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘, because of the glaring similarities. Not only is it similar, but it’s a damn good film that stays with you long after you watch it. There looks to be only one extra here and no 4K UHD release yet, but let’s hope that changes. I can’t wait to watch this again and  relive the awkwardness and suspenseful situations this movie delivers.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


The threats of terrorism, war, chaos, and financial ruin are all too real these days.  ’The Dark Knight Rises’ dives into these issues on a massive scale, which makes any film in the Marvel universe look like mere “child’s play” (no reference to a knife-wielding murderous doll).  Compared with the other Batman movies, everything is bigger in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and there is so much more at stake.  Not one second of this film is wasted, the writing and direction is straight to the point, cohesive, and comes across as totally fulfilling in its 164 minute run-time.

Rebecca S., here….

In modern terms, a unicorn is a sought after item of idea that you can never have; a fabled creature and impossible to capture. The perfect date night movie is the unicorn of our times. Speaking in stereotypes, men are said to want comedy, death defying action-adventure, and it would be great if someone got shot or maimed. Women are said to want lighthearted flirting, sincere laughter and a beautiful backdrop in which a woman is swept off of her feet by a gorgeous man. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you The Mountain Between Us. The answer to your date night woes. A unicorn.

Blu-ray Review: ‘You’ll Never Get Rich’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 2nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

YoullNeverGetRich_BD_HighRes__69755.1491195814.1280.1280

THE FILM

In 1941, Columbia Pictures wanted to make a film that that was current, fun, and had A-List stars. Being the time of World War II and having the iconic actor/dancer Fred Astaire on board, it would seem like the studio had a big hit on their hands with You’ll Never Get Rich, which is a musical comedy that takes place during the war. Even though it was nominated for an Oscar for Best Song, this film doesn’t seem to be thought out or well executed on any level.

fast-and-furious-04252011

I saw The Fast and The Furious when I was 14 or 15. As someone who grew up watching Point Break on VHS and other 80s/90s action movies it was right in my wheel house. I have never been a car guy but I still remember that summer talking with my friends about Honda Civics, Nos, and spoilers that we’d all be getting when we turned 16. The first movie is a step by step remake of Point Break, right down to letting the “bad guy” go at the end with “I owe you a 10 second car” instead of “Vaya Con Dios.” It stared two relatively unknowns in Paul Walker and Vin Diesel who will never be confused with Daniel Day Lewis but were born to play these parts. Ultimately was a fun summer popcorn movie that no one thought they’d hear from again, let alone turn into an almost 4 billion dollar franchise.

Film Review: ‘Life’!

Audrey E., here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-23 at 7.24.35 PM

Ah, the age old question: ‘Are we alone in the universe?’ In the film ‘Life,’ a diverse team of astronauts try to find a definitive answer to that query and volunteer for a daring mission to outer space. After successfully retrieving a sample from Mars, they discover a single cell organism amongst it, which could prove the existence of life outside the realm of our planet. The explorers immediately begin conducting scientific experiments on the fast developing extra-terrestrial; affectionately calling it Calvin. However, their fondness is soon erased when the creature suddenly demonstrates it’s not there to make friends, and the false sense of confidence it’s lured them into could cost them their lives.

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

a1kazv9rhrl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

Film Review: ‘Nocturnal Animals’!

I was completely thrown off by Tom Ford’sNocturnal Animals‘. Aside from ‘The Lobster‘, this film is the most disturbing and disappointing one I’ve seen in quite some time. From the time the opening credits rolled, I was bothered and that feeling did not subside. I was literally relieved when the closing credits rolled and at the same time I had a feeling of, “was that it?” To say it was the most unsatisfying viewing I’ve had in quite some time is an understatement. What’s so terrible, you ask? Let’s start at the top.

Many movies are cast with celebrities who bring fans into the theater. Arrival boasts a very distinguished cast, including Amy Adams, Jeremy Renner and Forest Whitaker. All three give award-worthy performances. However, what makes Director Denis Villeneuve’s film so special is that he makes the story the biggest star of the film.

Film Review: ‘The Bad Kids’!

MarcusPaigeHeader

In the vast and desolate Mojave Desert sits a high school. It’s not just any school, it’s the last stop for many troubled 11th and 12th graders. Triumphs are few and far between, graduations even more rare, but when there’s success it is ever so sweet. The Bad Kids, directed by Keith Fulton and Lou Pepe, follows three teens through their time at Black Rock High School, an alternative institution. The film focuses on Joey, whose turbulent home life leaves him struggling to cope with the normalcy of everyday life; Jennifer, whose lack of confidence stems from an emotionally abusive father; and Lee, a teen parent trying to raise a child with a classmate all the while fighting to compensate for his educational shortcomings.

I loved, Loved, LOVED ‘Now You See Me‘! I’ve been ecstatic about the sequel for so long and am thrilled I can share the trailer with everyone. Of course, one of my favorite things about the first film was the inclusion of Isla Fisher, alas her pregnancy got in the way of production this time around and Lizzy Kaplan (‘Mean Girls’) stepped in to fill that void. She’s by no means the only new blood the film is seeing, Daniel Radcliffe joined the cast and the end result, at least the trailer, is phenomenal!

Hold onto your seats! Triple 9 is a non-stop action-packed film that definitely delivers. Within the first ten minutes you are sucked into a high intensity bank heist that rolls right into one of the best get away scenes I’ve seen in a long time. It’s so intense that you aren’t really sure where the rest of the movie is going to go, but have no fear, there’s plenty of nail biting left to do.

WWE: Possible Scenarios at the 2016 ‘Royal Rumble’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

THE ROYAL RUMBLE ITSELF

One of the WWE’s most electrifying events is the ‘Royal Rumble’. Since the 1980s, WWE has been using the Royal Rumble match and PPV as the pre-cursor to Wrestlemania. In this match, anything is possible, as 30 wrestling superstars enter the ring in 90 second intervals. The only way to win the match is to throw the other 29 opponents over the top rope of the ring and be the last man standing. Over the years, there has been many surprises. Vintage wrestling superstars have entered the contest as well as underdogs. Sure, being the first entrant is the most difficult and being the 30th entrant is the easiest, as time is on your side, but that doesn’t stop you from winning usually.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Now You See Me‘ was a really clever, entertaining film, kind of our generation’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘, not that one, the first one with Sinatra, Deano and Sammy. It was genius, so I was excited for a sequel and now that we’ve seen the trailer. This one stars Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Daniel Radcliffe and Mark Ruffalo among others. I’m anticipating the release date, which is all the way in June, but this trailer might hold me over.

Film Review: ‘Spectre’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

spectre-nbimagesopening-fbpic

The year 2015 marks the 24th ‘James Bond‘ film in the 007 franchise. It also marks the most expensive Bond film to date, which is also in the top two most expensive films ever made with a budget of over $300 million. Even in addition to that, this new 007 movie, titled ‘Spectre‘ is the longest running Bond film with a runtime of 148 minutes. With the billion dollar success and critical acclaim from ‘Skyfall‘ a couple of years ago, the studio and its executives thought it would be a good idea to go bigger and “better” on everything. That’s not always a good thing, as is the case with ‘Spectre‘, which is bloated and disappointing.

The latest Hollywood remake to hit theaters is the hit tv show from the mid-60’s ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘, which lasted four seasons and was partially developed by Ian Fleming just as the James Bond franchise was taking off. If you were alive during the mid-60s, you would have known that this ‘U.N.C.L.E.‘ television series was one of the best things on tv at the time, as it centered on an American spy and a Russian spy, working together to take out the bad guys in a very 007 kind of way.

Given Robert Downey Jr’s current state of badassery and awesomeness, I can’t think of anything he could do that would not bring in the fans. Once he turned the corner on his bad boy behavior in the 1980’s, he’s the equivalent of a golden ticket. Team Downey, which consists of RDJ and his wife, Susan Downey, has been harboring the idea of a fairy tale they want to give the live-action treatment. The tale of Pinocchio is one RDJ has been developing for years, somewhat on the sly, with Michael Mitnick (‘The Giver‘) writing the most recent draft while RDJ is ready to board the project as Geppetto, the toy maker.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

There’s one hell of a cast and crew at work here for Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland‘, which is loosely based on the famous theme park at Disney resorts. Directed by Brad Bird (‘The Incredibles‘, ‘Ratatouille‘, and the recent ‘Mission Impossible‘ film), produced by Damon Lindelof (‘Lost‘ and ‘Star Trek‘), and starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, ‘Tomorrowland‘ is a throwback to those old innovative Disney films full of adventure. I felt like a kid again through its two hour run time as I was watching each suspenseful and fun moment on the IMAX screen. That being said, ‘Tomorrowland‘ does have a few problems, but fortunately the good outweighs the bad this time around.

U.S. government and politics can seem depressing at times, that is until you look elsewhere. Cartel Land, directed by Matthew Heineman, is a front row seat to the fight against cartel violence in Mexico and along the US-Mexico border. The film examines what happens when government is no longer serving its citizens but rather serving itself. Do you stand by and watch as things continue to deteriorate, or do you take the law into your own hands?

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

Live action movies come in all shapes and sizes and are based on just about anything that can be stretched into a slight struggle with a few quirky side-kicks, maybe an impossible love-interest, the formula seems to remain the same even if the names are changed to protect the innocent.

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-Simon-Pegg

You can’t help but love Simon Pegg. His roles in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, and ‘The World’s End‘ are legendary. His work on the recent ‘Star Trek‘ films, ‘Paul‘, and in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ films have been excellent and very comical. That aside, i love seeing Pegg work on dramatic films, because not only is he one of the best comedic actors around right now, but he is also one hell of a dramatic actor, and his new film ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness‘ highlights that.

Film Review: ‘The November Man’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

november_man cb

Pierce Brosnan…a previous incarnation of James Bond has added producing to his repertoire.  Brosnan’s latest production is the spy thriller, The November Man, a genre with which Brosnan is a little familiar.  Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) is a super spy who trained the newbies before his retirement from the CIA.  Being the Yoda of espionage, Brosnan’s all-knowing charm shines and somewhat terrifies.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Dan Brown’s novels, beginning with ‘The Da Vinci Code’, have made excellent fodder for some seriously successful films. The old adage is true, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This seems to be the way Sony is viewing their franchise based on Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.  Tom Hanks, director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer have all signed on to the third installment in the series which follows ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ and ‘Angels and Demons‘, ‘Inferno‘.

Ving Rhames Joins Indie Thriller ‘Operation’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

683-0

 

Ving Rhames hit the film scene hard in the 80’s and never looked back. Since 1984, he’s had at least one, more often several, projects each consecutive year. One of his most memorable roles was as the unfortunately brutalized Marsellus Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’. He provided the voice for Cobra Bubbles in Disney’s animated ‘Lilo & Stitch‘, and gave life to the flamboyant Fred G. Duncan in the comedy ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry‘. Rhames has gone from genre to genre and proven to be a talented entertainer with each turn.

Broadway’s First Black Cinderella Takes Stage!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Remember the movie ‘Akeelah and the Bee‘? Akeelah is all grown up now and preparing to take her place on the Great White Way. Keke Palmer is a long way from where she began her career as a thespian and is watching her dreams come true in a whole new way, now. Palmer will be the title character in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella‘ bowing on September 9th at the Broadway Theatre. Not only is she the new lead for the show, but she takes precedence as the show’s first black Cinderella. Brandy held the same distinction when she wore the glass slippers in 1997’s TV Movie of the same name.

Film Review: ‘I Origins’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan  Here…

13901-3

Director/writer Mike Cahill instantly became one of my favorite directors with his 2011 film ‘Another Earth‘. That breakout hit film was so original and beautifully made with an excellent performance by the beautiful Brit Marling and an well crafted screenplay, that it easily made it’s way into my Top 10 films of 2011, and is one film that I still watch often three years later. Now we are in 2014 and Cahill has delivered his second movie called ‘I Origins‘, and I’m here to tell you that it’s as every bit of good that you are hoping for.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

Listen, Michael Bay, we need to talk.  It’s not you, it’s me.  Trust me on this.  You haven’t changed, I have.  Maybe I love you more than I should.  Is it wrong to love too much?  Maybe it was.  You will always be dear to my heart.  Your explosions are completely unmatched by any other.  Nobody can take that away from you.  No other director will ever replace your passion to film entirely in IMAX 3D just to make things that much bigger, and we’re already talking about GIANT EFFIN ROBOTS!

Here’s The Latest on Steven Spielberg’s New Projects!!

There has been a lot of speculation recently about Steven Spielberg’s upcoming projects. Two of them will be for DreamWorks, and people have been curious as to which film he will tackle first. DreamWorks answered that question by announcing release dates for his next two projects. First, there is an untitled cold war, spy thriller, which will hit theaters on Oct. 16, 2015. Then less than a year later, his adaptation of Roald Dahl’s children’s book The BFG (The Big Friendly Giant) will open on July 1, 2016.

Film Review: ‘Frequencies’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

frequencies

Now here’s a gem of a film that, not without its flaws, emerges as a unique and worthwhile experience. Frequencies tells of a world, perhaps a near future, where each person is identified by their resonance with the planet.  Much like our ideas of IQ’s, a person’s frequency is a measurable feature, but in this universe, it is measurable to a point where the probability of failure or success at life is predictable with little room for error.

Re-Cast: ‘The Three Amigos’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

three-amigos-01

Here is our 34th episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘ and with one of our infamous Re-Cast segments.  We had a lot of fun with this one. We went ahead and recast ‘The Three Amigos‘, which starred the funniest three people in the world – Steve Martin, Martin Short, and Chevy Chase. It’s damn near impossible to remake and even recast this film, because it is indeed perfect, but in this day and age with so many reboots and remakes, it just might happen. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us? We hope to see this at least on the Broadway stage sometime soon as a musical. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information. And don’t forget to visit iTunes and Stitcher to subscribe to our podcast. Enjoy the show.

Leonardo DiCaprio Joins ‘The Revenant’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 17th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

First-Look-at-Leonardo-DiCaprio-in-Character-for-The-Wolf-of-Wall-Street

If there’s an actor that is fit for period pieces, it’s unarguably Leonardo DiCaprio. From ‘Titanic’ to ‘Gangs of New York’, ‘The Aviator’, ‘Django Unchained’, ‘The Great Gatsby’ and even ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’ was about as 80’s of a movie as you can go. Now he’s signed onto star in ‘The Revenant’ written and directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (‘Babel’, ’21 Grams’), co-written by Mark L. Smith.
