Upgrade is an excellent 90 minute Black Mirror episode. If you enjoy action movies or anything sci-fi I suggest checking out this quiet little movie before it leaves theaters. The basic plot is in the near future a guy has his spine severed when he and his wife get attacked by a group of men. After becoming a quadriplegic, he undergoes an experimental procedure that puts an AI chip in his spine. This chip gives him some superhuman abilities and senses which he uses to hunt down his wife’s killers.

Film Review: ‘Fear Us Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2017

ISIS has quickly become a hot topic in politics and the new organization of terror to defeat in the Middle East. Their ruthless genocide and enslavement of women has sparked major concern around the world, and many exasperated civilians are giving up their lives to answer the call of duty. Taking us right into the desert trenches of Northern Syria, the new documentary ‘Fear Us Women‘ showcases Hanna Bohman, a Canadian who recently reevaluated her life and volunteered to aid in a revolution of women’s rights. In just under thirty minutes, Director David Darg has gracefully shot an enlightening chronicle of sacrifice and bravery. He shows us that women can be fierce and, above all else, fearless.

Film Review: ‘Skin’!!

by Janet White on Aug 4th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…


Based on the real-life story of Bryon Widener, Skin details the epic transformation from a life of hate to a purpose of love. Raised in the rural recesses of America, Widener (Jamie Bell) was molded to be a white supremacist “soldier.” Merciless in his mindless pursuit of an all-white United States of America, Widener’s world is rocked to its core. What could remove blinders from such a person? Love, of course, enter Julie Price (Danielle Macdonald) and her three adorable angels, Desiree (Zoe Margaret Colletti), Sierra (Kylie Rogers), and Iggy (Colbi Gannett). However, the Vinlanders SC will not just stand by and see its lieutenant snatched away. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Deadpool 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2018

Ryan Reynolds was born to play the Marvel Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. Reynolds just pours all of his unique charm, wit, comedy, and physical choreography into the character. It’s almost like Reynolds is the actual Deadpool in real life, and indeed the world is better for it. Marvel and Fox decided to play nice a couple of years ago and we got a rated R Marvel superhero film with ‘Deadpool‘. It was a gamble for sure with the strong bloody violence and foul language, but the film ended up making almost $800 million at the box office and  was met with rave reviews across the board.

Film Review: Patti Cake$!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 24th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Step aside, Detroit. It’s Jersey’s time to rhyme! Straight out of the slums of suburbia, music-video Director Geremy Jasper serves up his feature film debut with ‘Patti Cake$’, a fresh princess tale of a maverick white rapper, Killa P, a.k.a. Patti (Danielle Macdonald). Pining to get away from her grungy surroundings and struggling family life, Patti sets off on a journey for a piece of the limelight with an unlikely pair. Perfectly mixed with a memorable soundtrack, wit and style, ‘Patti Cake$‘ manages to commend the craft of a genre that’s rightfully earned its place in Americana, while concurrently challenging the notions of race in music.

DVD Review: ‘Shelby: A Magical Holiday Tail’!

by Janet White on Nov 4th, 2015

Hi Everyone, Janet W. here…

Shelby DVD

The film is so bright, you gotta wear SHADES.

Shelby is a cute little dog movie, and Shelby (Rob Schneider) is, cute. It is never explained how the puppy repeatedly escapes from the pound, and that’s half the battle so it was a little disappointing. A button is pushed, (surely by the dogcatcher (Tom Arnold)) and next thing you know a dog is running in the streets. This doesn’t make sense unless the dogcatcher wants a regular exercise regime to break the monotony of small town life (as is perceived from the film). During one of Shelby’s escapes, he runs into the Parker family (or is hit by Ed Parker (Jefferson Brown)) who are going to show us what Christmas is all about or at least try.

Hey everyone, Jana here,


I am – officially – in love with this new bit of news! Once we heard that Disney was adapting the classic Rudyard Kipling tale ‘The Jungle Book‘ from their original animated format into the second-life of live-action release, the stars attached have gotten bigger and better. Jon Favreau (of ‘Iron Man‘ 1 and 2 fame) is on board to direct some awesomely pedigreed thespians in this venture.
