Film Review: ‘The Visit’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 9th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-visit-06

Finally, we have M. Night Shyamlan back in rare form with his new horror-comedy film ‘The Visit‘, which definitely doesn’t look like a Shyamalan movie at all. In fact, this is one of those “found footage” movies that rejuvenates this sub-genre of filmmaking once again. The world was introduced to M. Night Shyamalan back in 1999 with his hit film ‘The Sixth Sense‘, which quickly led the young director to superstardom as one of the coolest and imaginative directors of this modern era. Not only that, but he re-invented the “twist ending” again, which became a trademark of his down the road.

The Visit‘ is the newest film from writer/director/perfectionist M. Night Shyamalan and bows on September 11, 2015. The director has been more involved over-all with Visit since he took the time to edit the film himself thereby retaining total control of the project.  Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Visitors’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 14th, 2014

Hello Jana here,

detail.baa7b437

I always assumed reviewing films would be an extremely awesome thing to do for a living. I never took into account that you won’t always enjoy what you review. I can watch documentaries, I actually prefer them at times. National Geographic and Smithsonian documentaries are great! I love history, current events and learning about new weapons or drugs that are problems now. I don’t even require things being in English to enjoy them. I can read subtitles and if the actors are good enough I don’t even have to rely on subtitles.

Hi Bryan Here….

So yes.  I chose to screen this movie.  Before I walked in, I expected an absolute 91 minute eye gouging debacle.  But to my surprise, it really wasn’t all that terrible.  I mean don’t get my wrong.  I do not ever want to see this again, but kids everywhere are going to love this movie.  And it won’t be a bore to the parents either.  ‘Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer’ works for kids.  They will enjoy it.

Cowdefender visits The Town (Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2010

Say what you will about Ben Affleck. I like the guy.  His previous film, “Gone Baby Gone” was actually really great as it was his first film he directed.  “The Town” is his second.  I look forward to more films out of Ben Affleck.  Perhaps a sequel to Phantoms??  I kid.  Here is a short review of” The Town” from Cowdefender.

The Town

Affleck’s newest film is bound to remove some of the hate for him him out there. As undeserved and overblown as I find that hate for the man, it exists and I don’t know how people can cling to it having seen this. The direction was very good, very polished. The pacing was excellent. For a movie like this, if it isn’t done right the movie sucks when people aren’t shooting. If it’s done really really poorly it’ll suck while they’re shooting, too. At no point does this flick suck. There’s tension in almost every scene due to what is established in the previews. Affleck was one of the guys that held the girl hostage and then he seems to pursue her romantically. In all of their interactions you wonder if he’ll do or say something that can screw things up, or if she’ll say something about the heist that he’ll find troubling, etc etc. Affleck’s character is complicated, too. Human. He’s selfish at times and (non plot spoiler alert) at one point he takes a crying baby out of the room of a motel and places it in the hallway.

The action sequences are excellent, well conceived, well executed, perfect audio, clever. It’s going to get compared to other movies because a crew is using assault rifles to rob people and they’re organized, but it feels like it’s own thing. A very fun ride.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

The Cabin in the Woods is Coming to 4K!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

That movie is The Cabin in the Woods, meaning we will get all those monsters and mermaids in glorious HDR. I just can’t wait to watch this all over again.

From the producer of ‘Get Out‘, ‘The Purge‘, and ‘The Visit‘ comes a ‘Happy Death Day’, a horror where each day ends the same as the one before, in death. Director Christopher Landon (‘Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones‘) has put together a cast anchored by Jessica Rothe (‘La La Land‘), also starring Israel Broussard (‘The Bling Ring‘), Ruby Modine (‘Shameless‘), Charles Aitken, and Jason Bayle.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

cb941c80-df09-11e6-8dc8-1fe8c8155e51_unbreakable-split

M. Night Shyamalan was the next greatest filmmaker in the world. With films like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs – the talented filmmaker was set to be the next Spielberg, Lucas, Scorsese, Hitchcock, and Gilliam combined into one person. It was working for him. Then, Shyamalan went on a “bender” and made a ton of shitty films, but I do believe this was a case of Hollywood taking control and not letting him do anything creative.

Writer director M. Night Shyamalan (‘The Sixth Sense‘) went from one of the most exciting directors to a cliche joke seemingly overnight after ‘The Village‘ and, especially, the floating turd that was ‘Lady in the Water‘. The man heralded as “the next Spielberg” has seen his stock rise in 2015 with ‘The Visit‘ and once again with ‘Split‘ which many put on par with ‘The Sixth Sense‘. It’s ‘Split‘ that is gathering attention today with the announcement from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment of it’s release to Blu-ray, DVD, Digital HD and On Demand.

Film Review: ‘SPLIT’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

M. Night Shyamalan has sure given us some wonderful and unforgettable films over the years. Somewhere along the way, Shyamalan lost his way as a filmmaker. So much so, that the studios would leave his name off all advertisements for the movie. It wasn’t until ‘The Visit‘ when Shyamalan came into the good graces of his fans again. Perhaps this is because he only had a very small budget to work with and got creative control without a ton of studio interference to do his own creative work. Now we have a new small budget film from Shyamalan called ‘Split‘, and is yet another step forward for the filmmaker in the third part of his career, which seems to drop the Spielberg aspect and go straight for the B-Movie genre.

Film Review: ‘Arrival’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

amyadamsarrival

Not to be confused with ‘The Arrival‘ with a young Charlie Sheen, although both of these films involve visitors from another planet, the simply titled ‘Arrival‘ takes the alien invasion genre into paths that we’ve never traveled down before. Directed by Denis Villeneuve (Enemy, Prisoners, Sicario), instead of giant cities falling to the ground and millions of people disintegrating into thin air by a laser beam, ‘Arrival‘ follows the path of two people who want to find a way to communicate with the new aliens that have seemed to land at twelve different locations on planet Earth. Set in present day, multiple giant alien spacecrafts land on Earth, where the governments around the globe put their best and brightest on the job to try and communicate with the new visitors.

Film Review: ‘No Escape’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 26th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.54.58 AM

No Escape opens in black with opening credits and the sound of insects chirping.  Suddenly we focus on two glasses of clear beverage.  The camera follows the waiter carrying the glasses through the hotel/mansion until they arrive at the security/food taster.  Upon receiving his approval the waiter continues to the Prime Minister of Thailand and his visitor.  You wonder if something is in the glasses and if the Prime Minister will meet his end.  They both drink and finish their meeting.  As the visitor is escorted out by security, suddenly alarms sound.  The security officer takes off for the Prime Minister.  He is found bloody and dead.  Rebels walk up to the security officer and he draws his blade.  To defend himself?  No, he slices his own throat.  Oh, right, this is a Weinstein film.  Cut to titles that transition into clouds and an airplane window.

‘E.T.’ Will Return To The Big Screen!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

That’s right, folks.  ‘E.T.’ will be on the big screen again, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events.  Screening will take place October 3rd at 7:00pm at select theaters across the country.  This marks the 30th anniversary of the film and most likely is geared to promote the new blu-ray coming out as well.  This was one of the first films I saw in the theater and it just blew my mind.  It was one of the first times my Dad and I bonded over a film.  Needless to say it holds a special place in my heart.  Not only will you get a newly remastered version of the film, but also a journey of the making of ‘E.T.’.  And yes, folks, this is this original film, not the version with the extra scenes or the CGI’d walkie-talkie replacements.  Spielberg acknowledged his fuck-up long ago and apologized.  The same can’t be said for Lucas.  I’m super excited about this and hope all of you can make it and take your kids to see this on the big screen.  Official press release below.

‘King Cohen’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 18th, 2018

Larry Cohen is one of those old-school filmmakers that has been around a long time and is universally loved in the business. Cohen is mostly known for his B-movie films and having a penchant for not taking “no” for an answer. His filmmaking methods are pioneering and risky, but all have been a big success in their own way. Over the past few decades, Choen has amassed a ton of great friendships with other filmmakers, who all talk about Cohen her in this documentary called ‘King Cohen‘.

‘The Evil Dead’ 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

Perhaps the best horror film of all time and most certainly the most magnificent cult film of all time that gave us Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi to the world – ‘The Evil Dead‘ from 1981 is truly an extraordinary movie. This super low budget film with tons of gore spawned two sequels, a remake, and even a very successful 3-season tv series on Starz, not to mention countless toys, comics, and video games based off the film. Sam Raimi was just in his 20s when he made this movie with his family and friends, all shot on location in the middle of the woods, much to the chagrin of the actors. They powered through it and it became a huge success with big financing for a movie of this caliber and a winning review from the horror master himself Stephen King.

‘Strait-Jacket’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

William Castle is at it again here with the fun murderous mom movie ‘Straight-Jacket‘ from 1964. Yes, that William Castle who brought the gimmicky movies like ‘The Tingler‘, ‘13 Ghosts‘, and ‘House on Haunted Hill‘. Joan Crawford stars in this film, which came out after her resurgence from ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?‘. She went on to star in very similar roles, but with ‘Straight-Jacket‘, she stars as an ax-wielding murderer – mostly. Of course, production on this film was tense, to say the least, due to Crawford’s presence and diva-like personality. She even got some people fired from the set, but I guess that was the case if you were going to hire Crawford.

‘The Curse of the Cat People’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2018

The Cat People‘ really thrilled people back in 1942, so in 1944, they made a sequel called ‘The Curse of the Cat People‘. It was all marketing though as ‘Curse‘ barely had anything to do with the original film, besides some of the same characters and actors. Notably, the filmmaker Ray Wise made this movie. Who is Ray Wise you ask? Holy Shit, I’ll tell you. He directed ‘West Side Story‘, ‘The Sound of Music‘, and even edited ‘Citizen Kane‘ to name a few projects he’s worked on. Not exactly a light-weight.

Not to be confused with Michael Jackson’s song (Rockwell) ‘Somebody’s Watching Me‘, this 1978 made-for-television film called ‘Someone’s Watching Me!‘ was directed by the iconic John Carpenter (Halloween), which interestingly enough, came out a couple of weeks after ‘Halloween‘ was released in theaters. The film stars Lauren Hutton as a young woman who moves from NYC to LA in order to become a TV producer/director. She seems to be enjoying life out there, however, she has a stalker who spies on her from the building across from her with a telescope. This stalker sends her awful messages, harasses her, and even sends her strange gifts in the mail.

‘Night of the Lepus’ Blu-ray Review!

Back in 1972, a man by the name of William F. Claxton made his last feature film with ‘Night of the Lepus‘, before heading into the TV realm with shows like ‘Little House on the Prairie‘. That’s not a joke either. This movie is based off a book by Russell Braddon from 1964 called ‘The Year of the Angry Rabbit‘. Yes, a killer rabbit movie is what ‘Night of the Lepus‘ movie is all about. It’s about as good as you’d expect it to be, which is not very good. That being said, it’s so bad – it’s good and is so much fun to watch.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Brainscan’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

Remember when computers, the internet, and CD-ROM games were first all the rage in the early 1990s? I certainly do. So did Hollywood, which is why they decided to make a string of films based on that fact. One of the horror films that fit this bill was ‘Brainscan‘, which starred the short-lived popular kid Edward Furlong, mostly known as the young John Connor in ‘T2: Judgement Day‘. The film follows a young teenager who lives in his dad’s wealthy abode but is never around to take care of him.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Unborn’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

There is a fun horror sub-genre about pregnancy and demonic babies. In 1991, a film called ‘The Unborn‘ was added to that list and could be compared somewhat to ‘It’s Alive‘ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby‘. What’s crazy about this movie is the amount of talent involved before they were A-List. This is filmmaker Rodman Flender’s first film who went on to make a ton of horror movies and TV shows such as ‘The Office‘, ‘Arli$$‘, and ‘Leprechaun 2‘. It was produced by Roger Corman, starred a young Lisa Kudrow, with cinematographer Wally Pfister, who went on to lens all of Christopher Nolan’s movies, including the ‘Dark Knight‘ trilogy. It’s crazy, I know.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Memoirs of an Invisible Man’!

John Carpenter is mostly known as a maestro of horror with movies like ‘Halloween‘, ‘They Live‘, ‘Escape From New York‘, and ‘Big Trouble In Little China‘ under his belt. In 1992, a mostly forgotten movie he made is ‘Memoirs of an Invisible Man‘, which starred Chevy Chase, Daryl Hannah, Sam Neill, Michael McKean, and Stephen “Ned Ryerson” Tobolowsky. Carpenter and Warner Bros. Studios didn’t exactly get along, because they wouldn’t let Carpenter have total creative control here, so the film is safe and family friendly, unlike the rest of his films. In fact, Ivan Reitman of ‘Ghostbusters‘ was set to make this movie, but it never got off the ground and Carpenter was offered the role.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Tingler’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

Gimmicks used to be a huge thing in horror movies back in the 1950s. They were used all the time in these low budget horror films to conjure up scares, word-of-mouth, and good publicity to sell a movie that wasn’t necessarily any good. In 1959, filmmaker William Castle (House on Haunted Hill, 13 Ghosts) was a pioneer in using these gimmicks. He was known for paying actors to attend movie screenings and scream and or faint during the film to cause a stir. In House on Haunted Hill, Castle rigged a fake skeleton to fly through actual movie theaters to scare the audience. He was a genius for sure, way ahead of his time. In 1959 though, he made a film called ‘The Tingler‘, which starred Vincent Price. His gimmick for this film was to use some of the budget to attach buzzers to theater seats to simulate scares and screams at certain moments in the movie. It worked perfectly and this is the type of movie where this gimmick succeeds.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Piranha II: The Spawning’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

 

Back in 1981, the world was introduced to filmmaker James Cameron (T2: Judgement Day, Avatar, True Lies). His first feature film was called ‘Piranha II: The Spawning‘ or otherwise known as The Flying Killers and was a sequel to the first ‘Piranha‘ film from a few years prior. The production of this movie had a very troubled history, where Cameron wasn’t even the filmmaker hired for the job. The original director was fired due to differences with the hard-nosed Italian producer. This was also true with Cameron as well, where Cameron had a completely different filmed version and script of the movie that was more or less a comedy horror film that was fun.

4K UHD Review: ‘Halloween’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

John Carpenter’s original ‘Halloween‘ film is iconic, classic, amazing, scary, and still holds up to this day. It paved the way for modern horror movies and slashers and spawned numerous sequels. This film has been released dozens of times over the years on various formats, but this is the first time in 4K UHD with Dolby Vision, which is an upgrade, to say the least. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of the movie, this is a slow burn of a masked killer with supernatural abilities and demonic forces who stalks and kills his victims, most of them high-school students. He’s the one in the dark corners, behind walls, and hidden in the bushes waiting to pounce and brutally kill you.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

Jurassic World‘ burst onto the scene as a sequel/reboot hybrid film that made over $1.6 billion at the box office. Of course, there would be more, but at what cost? ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘ takes place a year or so after the events of the first film where the island where the theme park and dinosaurs were on are ravaged by an exploding volcano. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard team up again to save the dinosaurs, however they are misled by a maniacal businessman who has other plans for the dinosaurs, mostly being selling them at an auction to warlords across the country in hopes of turning these dinosaurs into military killing machines with freaking lasers attached to their heads for a profit. I’m not making this up.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Hocus Pocus’ 25th Anniversary!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

It’s hard to believe that this film has been out for 25 years. ‘Hocus Pocus‘ had a strange story to it in that it’s a Halloween film from Disney that was released in the middle of Summer in 1993 against the movie ‘Free Willy‘. It stood no chance whatsoever and only made a little bit more than its budget. That being said, over the past two decades, ‘Hocus Pocus‘ has become a strong cult film amongst adults and kids alike where cosplayers and fans still celebrate this movie to this day with giant fandom. Say what you will about this movie, it’s always impressive that a movie that was virtually disliked by a ton of professionals and didn’t make money when it came out, but has become super successful for twenty years and counting is nothing short of a miracle.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Phantasm IV: Oblivion’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2018

The ‘Phantasm‘ series is legendary with filmmaker Don Corsacelli and his villain the Tall Man front and center. What’s fun about this series of horror films is that each sequel starts off right where the previous movie left off. This fourth film had an insane pre-production history. Roger Avery of ‘Pulp Fiction‘ and ‘Rules of Attraction‘ actually wrote a screenplay for this 4th film where it centered on a post-apocalyptic future world. It even was set to star Bruce Campbell too.

What’s fun about this series of horror films is that each sequel starts off right where the previous movie left off. This third film plays out like ‘Inception‘ in a way, where characters are living in a dream within a dream, or shall I say nightmare through a lot of the film.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Dark Crimes’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 27th, 2018

 

Jim Carrey is mostly known for his comedic films as well as a very family friendly actor who all audiences can enjoy on the big screen. Over the past decade, Carrey has jumped into more dramatic and even horror territory. His latest show on Showtime ‘Kidding‘ highlights his acting chops quite well as someone who can be a kid-friendly personality to a dark and sadistic would-be killer. In this new film ‘Dark Crimes‘, Carrey plays a Polish detective who goes down a rabbit hole of murder and sex games.

4K UHD Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2018

Disney is on a roll these days with their recent ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. Not only do we have the new Episodes, but we are getting spin-off movies that focus on a singular story from the past or a certain character. One character that we all have loved from the original trilogy, but don’t know a great deal about is Han Solo. Sure, we know he was a smuggler, is an anti-hero, loved the princess, and helped save the Galaxy with his wookie partner Chewbacca, as they flew from planet to planet on the iconic Millennium Falcon. Through the original trilogy, we heard small lines of dialogue that gave us the tiniest glimpse at his background and life before he met Obi-Wan and Luke. Fortunately, we now have ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ to answer all of those questions for us.

4K UHD Review: ‘American Psycho’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2018

American Psycho became one of my favorite films when it first debuted almost two decades ago. Based on Brett Easton Ellis‘ hit novel of the same name, it follows a square, nerdy, yet hugely successful investment banker in New York City named Patrick Bateman. When Bateman isn’t busy being boring and working, he moonlights as a brutal and vicious serial killer around NYC. In this darkly comedic story that combines comedy, horror, and 1980s pop tunes, you can’t help but laugh and be scared by the OCD of Patrick Bateman as he navigates his business life, business cards, making reservations at restaurants and killing people with axes and chainsaws.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Smithereens’ Criterion Collection!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2018

Smithereens is a film from 1982 that focuses on the end of the punk rock scene in New York City. Directed by Susan Seidelman (She-Devil), the film focuses on a young woman who will do whatever it takes to be a part of the punk scene. I don’t mean a musician either, but rather a groupie or someone in the background. Unfortunately, in real life, there were a ton of these people who met their demise early on in life by way of crime, drugs or alcohol. This one is no different and while it might not be as brutal as Sid and Nancy, it’s just as tragic in a subtle way. It’s a fantastic film and Criterion Collection has brought the film to their amazing collection on Blu-ray. With a new transfer in HD, a mono soundtrack and excellent extras, this film Smithereens is Highly Recommended. Please listen to the review in podcast form below.

Interview with Donnell Rawlings!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 2nd, 2018

I had the distinct pleasure to talk with actor/comedian Donnell Rawlings about his new show ‘HOLLYWEED‘ amongst other things. ‘HOLLYWEED‘ is a new TV show pilot that stars Rawlings and Kevin Smith, the latter of which wrote and directed the show. It’s a lot like ‘CLERKS‘, but instead taking place at a convenience store, it’s at a cannabis dispensary. It’s fantastic, to say the least. Donnell Rawlings is mostly known for starring in Chappelle Show on comedy central.

Fantastic Fest is one of the events that is pure bliss for any fan of genre cinema. If you love horror, sci-fi, foreign, action, and even adult-oriented movies from the 1970s, then Fantastic Fest is the place to let that freak flag fly high and be with like-minded individuals that truly appreciate the art of movies. All of the madness and fun will take place in Austin, TX starting on September 20th and run for 10 days at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar St. This year, which is the 14th annual festival of Fantastic-ness, captures the essence of the Korean movie scene with a ton of cool films being showcased from Korea, both new and old. This is something you won’t want to miss.

 

 

The first wave of movies has been announced, including the World Premiere of the WWII horror movie called ‘OVERLORD‘ from J.J. Abrams. In addition to that film, Fantastic Fest will host Gareth Evans‘ horror movie ‘APOSTLE‘. Gareth gave us the amazing films ‘THE RAID‘ AND ‘THE RAID 2‘, so you can expect some insane fight scenes and horrific imagery. Alos, a film called ‘THE NIGHT COMES FOR US‘, which stars the badass from those ‘RAID‘ movies will be shown, meaning Iko Uwais will stun us once again with his amazing physical skills. If you were a fan of ‘THE GREASY STRANGLER‘, the director of that movie Jim Hosking has a new film called ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘, which is being described as a David Lynch meets John Waters type of movie. You had me at Greasy Strangler.

 

 

Lastly, there are some vintage films coming through from AGFA (American Genre Film Archive), one of which has peaked my interest from the title alone – ‘MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE‘. I have high hopes for this one. Below is the list of films with cast and crew info, along with a brief synopsis. Enjoy and hope to see you all there.

Reconstruction of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

There are three types of movies in this world for me; bad movies (which I may or may not enjoy because of or despite of their badness), good movies, and movies that annoy me.  Movies that annoy me are the ones I obsess over.

Movies that annoy me tend to be “close but no cigar” to a good movie. They annoy me, because I wish the film had gotten the cigar. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a movie that annoys the crap out of me.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was intended to be a soft reboot of the series. It was supposed to introduce new characters in a similar environment and allow the series to have a “fresh start.”  The film had absolutely everything it needed to accomplish this task. Instead, the movie is a jammed pack, convoluted, dragging two-hour film.

John Landis is one of those filmmakers that comes along once in a lifetime. The director has made some of the most iconic and most memorable motion pictures to ever grace the big screen.

Film Review: ‘Hotel Artemis’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2018

Writer Drew Pearce, best recognized for Iron Man 3 (2013) and Mission ImpossibleRogue Nation (2015), has entered his first directorial credit into the heated competition of summer blockbusters. Set up with a unique concept of a secret hotel/emergency-room for criminals in futuristic Los Angeles, ‘Hotel Artemis’ sounds promising on paper, right? But upon execution, the result is a mediocre thriller whose only saving grace is the appearance of Jeff Goldblum and a few comical one-liners from supporting cast.

THE FILMS


Presented here in 4K UHD are the first 4 ‘Jurassic Park‘ films, including ‘Jurassic Park‘, ‘Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World‘, ‘Jurassic Park 3‘, and ‘Jurassic World‘, which came out only a couple of years ago. Back in 1993, Steven Spielberg gave us the world of dinosaurs in such a moving, emotional, and entertaining way, that his first film ‘Jurassic Park‘, became a milestone in filmmaking and paved the way for a ton of creative minds over the next few years. With a mix of practical effects and state-of-the-art CGI effects, Spielberg and his crew of filmmakers created dinosaurs all over again, which became a huge phenomenon.

THE FILM


Five years have past since Disney opened the vault and let loose their animated ‘Peter Pan‘ movie. In 2013, it was the 60th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray. Now, it’s 2018, and we have the 65th Anniversary Blu-ray Signature Edition. This is the same exact Blu-ray release from 2013, but with a few new bonus features and different cover art. Both the 2013 version and this 2018 version come with Digital Copies, which is good, along with a DVD version. If you have the previous edition, there’s really no need to re-buy this one, unless you’re a huge fan or want the new bonus features, which will be listed out below. It’s the same film, the same video and audio presentations as well.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Matrix’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2018

THE FILM


There are only a handful of times where a single film completely flips the entire cinema world upside down and becomes the landmark and milestone for future movies and filmmakers in the decades to come. In 1999, the filmscape was forever changed with a sci-fi action movie called ‘The Matrix‘ by the Wachowski siblings. Nobody had ever heard of the filmmaking duo before and there was not a single soul in the world that though Keanu Reeves would become the action star he became after this movie, but it all worked out well and drove a ton of creative people to think, philosophize, and create even more work based on ‘The Matrix‘.

Film Review: ‘The Seagull’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 24th, 2018

The Seagull, a Chekhov play which has been adapted for screen by Michael Mayer, sorely misses the mark. I say this without having read the play; however, I all but guarantee you that Chekhov is rolling over in his grave. I saw the preview for this film in the theater and it didn’t look half bad: the cast is filled with strong women and well known men. Leading the way are Annette Bening, Saoirse Ronan and Elisabeth Moss. While they all have strong performances, they could only do so much with the material they were given. Rounding off the cast are Corey Stoll, John Tenney and Brian Dennehy.

National Lampoon’s Van Wilder‘ came out sixteen years ago and more or less re-lit the fire for National Lampoon. This also paved the way for Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds, as this was his first feature film in a leading role. Some of the jokes don’t hit too well in our current politically correct culture, but it’s silly enough to have fun with it. It’s just unfortunate that the filmmakers went the gross-out humor route solely and failed to develop these good characters, but that seemed to be the case in 2002. Also, it’s unfortunate that this is not a new remaster or transfer. This is the same video and audio presentations from the 2007 Blu-ray release, which of course had its problems. I imagine Lionsgate is trying to make a quick and easy dollar for the release of ‘Deadpool 2‘, hence this re-release that has no new extras on it. Still, if you’re a fan of the film and want the Digital Copy, this is a way to get it.
