I Saw The Light‘ is going to be a biopic of amazing proportions once it’s in theaters on November 27 of this year. It will show us an up close and personal story of Hank Williams. The voice that went on to personify cowboys and country music for many years to come, continuing through today.

Legendary announced their plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic origins of King Kong during this year’s San Diego Comic Con. There have been King Kong stories that go so far back Faye Wray wouldn’t even be able to remember them all. It’s a story we’re all familiar with, but that doesn’t mean we will know what to expect from this film, especially when it’s based on the origins of the legendary, giant ape. Origin stories are really big right now and this one explores a topic we really haven’t been over inundated with. This has me looking forward to the film knowing nothing more than this info, right now.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

If you’re new to the site you may not know how I have railed against the habit film makers have of taking classic movies and re-tooling them into what they deem bigger and better. If you’re not new, sorry, had to point that out! Anyhow, I have certain rules that make a re-imagining somewhat acceptable. One of them is if the original has been out for more than 50 years, go for it. If there were only crappy and really horrid special effects in the original, I’m looking at you Bubo, then go for it, but you better knock that flick out of the park! I’m talking about mind-melting special effects and balls to the wall violence. There is something to be said for childhood favorites, no matter how awful that cutting edge technology was, now. This bit of news falls into both categories.

I would have never thought of this casting decision, but it makes perfect sense, and I’m totally psyched about it. Tom Hiddleston or Loki from ‘The Avengers‘ will play the iconic country and western music singer Hank Williams in the film ‘I Saw The Light‘. Marc Abraham will direct the biopic film from a script he wrote, which was based off of the biography by Colin Escott.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

The Avengers are back and they’ve brought a few friends. The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe  packs the star-power in like gunpowder to a bomb making it ready to ignite a powder keg of awesome to kick off the summer. The usual suspects have all returned, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey, Jr., and Jeremy Renner. But there is room for more awesome, and we get it with the addition of Karen Gillan, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, and Zoe Saldana from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and far too many to mention to round out one kick-ass movie, or at least that’s what the trailer leads us to expect. We can’t forget to mention that Josh Brolin’s Thanos is back and will stop at nothing to get what he wants, the Infinity Stones.

Film Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 31st, 2017

Thor is starring in his third stand-alone film called ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ and brings a much needed change to the character in the best possibly way. Thor now has a fun personality and great comedic timing, mostly due to Chris Hemsworth amazing acting chops here. In addition to that, the film is steeped in a hypnotic, yet hyper-active color scheme that looks like Willy Wonka and Andy Warhol got together and decorated a city. In fact, Wonka’s theme ‘Pure Imagination’ is a song that plays in the film. It’s not all cold and stiff dialogue here anymore with brown or earth toned aliens and robots that Thor has to use his hammer to fight. Everyone and everything is covered in bright primary and pastel colors that creates a breath of fresh air in this stale universe. That’s all thanks to filmmaker Taika Waititi for giving his unique vision on this big budget film ($180 million). In previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, particularly with Thor, things have been sour and gloomy.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We’ve seen a ton of versions of ‘King Kong‘ over the decades from the 1933 version to the Jeff Bridges version in the 1970s, and even more recently, the 2005 version that was directed by ‘Lord of the Rings‘ director Peter Jackson. ‘King Kong‘ has been a staple in entertainment and pop culture since he debuted in the early 30s and he is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to Warner Bros.and Legendary Pictures who are taking their cues from Marvel and creating their own universe called the ‘MonsterVerse‘.

Film Review #2: ‘Kong: Skull Island’!

Dan M., here….

Bad news. Kong: Skull Island isn’t a good movie, but it isn’t a bad one either. It exists in that awful “shrug” territory “Why?” or “I guess that works.”

Lets break it down!

Hugh Laurie (‘House‘) and Tom Hiddleston (‘The Avengers‘) star in the mini-series adaptation of John Le Carre’s best-selling spy thriller ‘The Night Manager‘. If you want your night manager original and uncensored, and be honest, don’t we all want Hiddleston that way? It will be available to us at the end of next month, August 30, on Blu-ray and DVD.

Hey guys, Jana here,

good-omens-1

Life and death, witches and demons, the antichrist, angels and secrets surrounding the end of the world. They all have one thing in common, you’ll find all of them in the pages of ‘Good Omens‘ by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. This isn’t a book review, because I’d need way more space and time than you’d be willing to give me, but this IS a flaming awesome announcement about said novel. It’s coming to TV!

THE FILM

When Guillermo Del Toro makes a movie, you pay attention, but a ticket, strap yourself in the seat, and prepare your eyeholes for something that is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. With a resume that includes ‘Pan’s Labyrinth‘, ‘Hellboy I & II‘, ‘Blade II‘, ‘Pacific Rim‘, and ‘The Devil’s Backbone‘, you know for sure, you’re in for something special when Del Toro is involved. That brings us to his latest masterpiece of cinema, ‘Crimson Peak‘. Now I know that the trailers for ‘Crimson Peak‘ paint a picture that makes this look like a straight horror film, which is not the case here.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.
