The Last Black Man in San Francisco – Film Review!

by Janet White on Jun 13th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is not perfect in its execution, but the story is moving despite its disjointed structure and flow.”

An interesting story comes out the U.S. capitol of “in your face.” In The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Joe Talbot, the director, teams up with Jimmie Fails (Jimmie Fails) for a second time to bring you seemingly Fails’s own story of the journey of living with loss. Orphaned from a drug addict mother and deceased father, Jimmie has lived with a friend, Montgomery Allen (Jonathan Majors) for some unrevealed amount of time. Each day, Jimmie and Mont take the bus to his childhood home. Much to the chagrin of the current owners, Jimmie touches up his ancestral homestead. When ownership of the property suddenly is in flux, Jimmie seizes the moment. What followed enlightened Jimmie’s world and hopefully the viewers in the audience. Read the rest of this entry »

Batman 30th Anniversary – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2019

In 1989, the birth of summer blockbusters became real with Tim Burton’s Batman. Before that, the superhero genre was not the behemoth it was today with A-list actors, 9-figure budgets, and compelling dramatic tones. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Us comic books fans had to settle for slapstick one-liners in low budget sets and costumes to get our favorite heroes on screen. It wasn’t until that summer where everything changed and paved the way for films like X-Men, the MCU, and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise. It was a strange decision too, but Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided on the young filmmaker Tim Burton to take on the large budget and big named comic book adaptation of Batman. Until then, Burton had only done Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice.

The Perfection – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2019

 

“This film is exactly what its title indicates – The Perfection.” 

It’s not an easy task to fool me in a film. I can usually tell where a story is headed by one aspect or another. That’s definitely not the case with Richard Shepard’s (Dom Hemingway) newest film The Perfection, which consistently had me thinking one way, but completely went the other direction. I loved every bloody minute of it and you will too with its beautiful camerawork, excellent performances, and incredible pacing and story.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2019

THE FILM

(Film Review Portion Written By Audrey Evans)

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back, but this time he has a fellowship of web-warriors from other dimensions to save the day. In a market currently flooded with Marvel, one might scoff at the idea that ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘ has anything new to offer, but prepare for a fresh spin on this radioactive world. This ‘Spider-Man‘ is hilarious, bold and inclusive. It not only reflects diversity in its artistic approach, but also in its cast of characters – and above anything else, the animation is absolutely unparalleled!

‘First Man’ Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 10th, 2018

Anytime I see a movie about space the technology seems effortless. Even in space disaster movies, the main character is one button or airlock away from safety. The technology and engineering are always #15 on the list of most movies set in space. Even movies like Apollo 13 romanticize space travel to a large degree and gloss over the real work it takes to even get up there. First Man takes a different approach to launch humans into space by making every single aspect of the space program of the 60s be, frankly, terrifying.

Dan Moran’s Review of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 4th, 2018

Ant-Man & The Wasp is perfectly fine. Its ok. It is certainly a two hour movie in which things happen. I was entertained by things that happened in this movie, that I definitely saw, but I don’t think matter at all. I love Paul Rudd. Evangeline Lily as Wasp is delightful. Michael Pena steals every single scene he is in again. Michael Douglas certainly enjoys his paycheck. Walton Goggins is wasted, but my face lit up every time he spoke. This is without a doubt the best cast of all the solo Marvel films. The problem with the movie is that it was released at the worst possible time to get anyone to care about it.

Film Review: ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2018

A few years later, we have a sequel to one of the Avenger’s more minuscule components in ‘Ant-Man‘. The original film was funny, charming, and had a good deal of entertainment value, mostly due to Paul Rudd’s unique and perfect comedy timing and delivery. Now, after the big consequences of ‘Black Panther‘ and ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘, Marvel thought it be best to make ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp‘ with a funnier tone and with much lower conflict and chaos. It’s a nice breather before what’s to come in future Marvel movies.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2018

THE FILM


What if I were to tell you that Woody Allen basically made his own version of Alfred Hitchcock’sRear Window‘ that starred himself and Diane Keaton? You’d be excited, right? Well, it happened in 1993 and is kind of light a 1st cousin to ‘Annie Hall‘ as Allen and Keaton play a couple in their mid-life who thing their neighbor killed someone. The film is called ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery‘, and is a comedic film that served to alleviate the pain of Allen’s divorce from Mia Farrow.

You never thought we’d get a crossover feature animated film of Batman and Scooby-Doo, did you? Well we have one now and I’m here to say that’s it’s quite a fun experience that combines both the DC Universe and the classic Scooby-Doo antics that we’ve grown to love. This marks the 30th Scooby-Doo film and brings back the whole ‘Batman: The Brave and the Bold‘ cast back to the screen, which is the first time since 2011 when they went off the air with their hit TV show. On paper, or even the fun poster art of the film, you wouldn’t think these two worlds would mix well together, but when the two universes collide, its seems like they were always meant to be together and solve crimes together. They are the peanut butter and jelly of the animated world.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

Listen up, pitches, this movie is the perfect swan song to this series, so get yourself to a theater ASAP and prepare to fall in love all over again with the ladies of Pitch Perfect. The third and final installment of the Pitch Perfect series can be viewed as a stand-alone, but honestly, you’re depriving yourself of the musical and comedic joy that are the first two films if you don’t watch the first two in advance. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last seven or so years, do yourself a favor and have a marathon, or you know, turn on TBS on any given weekend, and watch the first two. In my opinion this one is better than the second installment, so if you found yourself kind of disappointed last go around, this one puts you back on track.

Written By: Bryan Kluger

Wrestlemania 34 is less than 6 months away with Survivor Series and Royal Rumble just around the corner. I do believe that the goal is to have Brock Lesnar in the main event at Wrestlemania 34 with the title in hand. I also believe he aims to lose that title on April 8, 2018 as well. Just not to the usual suspects (Reigns, Strowman, Joe).
