Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Last night we showed you images from the film, and today we have an awesome trailer for the remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. The original came out in 1960, which was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s ‘Seven Samurai‘. Both Kurosawa’s and John Sturges’ films are some of the better films out there in the world, so this remake has big shoes to fill. After watching the trailer, I can say it looks damn fun and what looks like to be a great take on these past classics. This is one of the films that is high on my radar, and it should be on yours too.

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the_magnificent_seven_70101

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. I’ve a huge fan of westerns. I wish there was more out there. luckily Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Bros. are making westerns still. You can add to that list Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who is remaking the 1960 film that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen.

Hey guys, Jana here,

In true Hollywood fashion, re-making an old classic is always a popular project and ‘Magnificent Seven‘ is no different. The new Seven is based on, of course, the 1960’s film of the same name that starred Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach and James Coburn. Of course, this classic is a remake of yet another film, from iconic director Akira Kurosawa’sSeven Samurai‘ from 1954.

Hi Bryan Here….

The Brothers Weinstein have tapped into remaking yet another classic.  This time it is the beloved Akira Kurosawa masterpiece “Seven Samurai” according to Variety.  Seven Samurai was a huge inspiration for several later films including “The Magnificent Seven”.  It seems that along with the Weinsteins, the Japanese Kurosawa production people will be producing the film as well.  But, it looks like this remake of “Seven Samurai” won’t feature any samurais at all and will be a modern tale of the original.

’10 to Midnight’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Get your B-Movie nudity excitement ready, because the 1983 horror film ‘10 to Midnight‘ is back with an all new 4K transfer on Scream Factory Blu-ray glory. J. Lee Thompson (Cape Fear) directed this film with a script from William Roberts (The Magnificent Seven) about a serial killer who kills naked women. Well that’s how it sounds on paper, but there’s more to this story, along with a cast of Charles Bronson, a young Kelly Preston, Ola Ray from the Michael Jackson Thriller video, and the diabeetus man himself Wilford Brimley as a police captain. I mean, it doesn’t get any better than that does it?

Eli Roth (The Bear Jew and director of ‘Cabin Fever‘) has remade the 1974 violent revenge film ‘Death Wish‘. Instead of Charles Bronson, we now have Bruce Willis. This film was originally slated to release in theaters over the Thanksgiving holiday of last year, but the studio decided to push it now to March 2, 2018. The guy behind ‘Narc‘, ‘Smoking Aces‘, and ‘The Grey‘ (Joe Carnahan) has written the screenplay too. I’m sure this movie will be fun with some hardcore carnage and one-liners, or at least – let’s hope. Below is a ton of info about the film and of course the trailer.

4K UHD Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

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.

Sylvester Stallone to play ‘The Godfather’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Is it true? Is Sylvester Stallone coming to television? Yes he is, and he will play the lead role of Raymonde Aprile, the last great American mob boss. I can’t wait to see Stallone play a sadistic bad guy. Not only that, ‘Training Day‘ and upcoming ‘The Magnificent Seven‘ director Antoine Fuqua will direct the series. The show is based off of ‘Omerta‘, which was the final novel from Mario Puzo, who famously wrote ‘The Godfather‘.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Kundo’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 8th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

THE FILM

To say all martial arts films are alike, is like saying every potato chip is the same. Sure there’s a base formula, but the good ones add to that recipe to make each film stand out on their own. Take the following films into consideration: ‘Seven Samurai‘, ‘Enter The Dragon‘, ‘IP Man‘, ‘The Karate Kid‘, ‘Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2‘, ‘13 Assassins‘ and any Van Damme movie you want, they are all martial arts films, but they have an entirely unique identity. I grew up on old martial arts films with horrendous English dubbing and every action star there ever was. I developed a deep appreciation for and love of all things Eastern that has carried through my adult life. I was excited to see ‘Kundo‘ and have, in fact, watched it three times.
