Blu-ray Review: ‘A Ghost Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2017

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion is written by Audrey Evans.)

Fresh off the wings of his most commercial movie to date, Pete’s Dragon (2016), Director David Lowery floats back to his Indie roots with the dreamy fantasy drama, ‘A Ghost Story.’  This ponderous portrait of life, loss and existence will undoubtedly make art enthusiasts coo over its alluring framework and vision, but for those anticipating an intensely haunting experience, be prepared for more mood than material. Time is of the essence in this story; the right state of mind and patience will reward you, that is, if you’re still alert before the leisurely picture reaches its point.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 3rd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 3.40.14 PM

THE FILM

Since the release of ‘The Force Awakens‘, Disney will be releasing a ‘Star Wars‘ film every year for the foreseeable future. Well, it’s been a year since ‘The Force Awakens‘, which means it’s time for another ‘Star Wars‘ film, and luckily for us, we get ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘. I’m so glad that Disney is allowing up and coming, young  filmmakers a chance to have a go at ‘Star Wars‘, because director Gareth Edwards (‘Monsters‘ and ‘Godzilla‘) has knocked it out of the park, even though there were some re-shoots with writer Tony Gilroy (‘Michael Clayton‘ and ‘The Bourne‘ films). This is the ‘Star Wars‘ film we have wanted for a long time, in that we get to see some characters do some truly amazing and badass things that we’ve never seen before, and a return to some of those classic set pieces and ships.

Hey guys, Jana here,

paneldiscussion_1011_greenriver

The story of America’s most prolific serial killer will be told by Michael Sheen (‘Kingdom of Heaven‘) in his directorial debut. He will also star as the “Green River Killer” himself, Gary Ridgway. Ridgway had a vicious love/hate relationship with prostitutes and he was convicted of murdering 49 victims throughout the 1980’s and 1990’s but later confessed to at least twice that number and was spared the death penalty by being cooperative with locating victims. The first five victims were found in the Green River leading the media to create the “Green River Killer” moniker.

Ryan Murphy sat as King of a mega panel Sunday as he doled out, in tiny increments what little bit of info he wanted us to have about his series ‘AHS: Hotel‘. Murphy is infamous for keeping his cards close to the vest and not letting much info out until he’s ready to debut his work, so this is a huge scoop regarding a highly anticipated series that is not yet ready for public consumption.

‘True Detective’ Fans Get Ready For Season 2!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Vince-Vaughn-Colin-Farrell-True-Detective-514711

HBO grabbed the collective viewers attention with ‘True Detective‘ in 2014. A series that won 5 Emmy Awards and was nominated for so many more accolades that it should have won. Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan star in the freshman season of the anthology police detective show. The detectives reminesce on a case from 1995 that has been closed as solved. Questions surface that force those involved to dredge up memories from the past, in looking closer at the variables, corruption is evident on both sides of the thin blue line.

It’s going to be difficult to top the fourth season of FX’sAmerican Horror Story‘, which had the carnival Freakshow background. That season was just killer. But we do know that the anthology series was picked up for a fifth season, which is due to air in October. Lady Gaga has just been cast as one of the main roles in the upcoming season.

Roots pic

We knew there was going to be a remake of ‘Roots‘ already, and that the History Channel was going to air it. If you’re unfamiliar, ‘Roots‘ was a 1977 miniseries that broke all kinds of records. It’s one of the better miniseries to ever be aired on television. Now since the History Channel has had some big success with ‘Hatfields & McCoys‘ and ‘Texas Rising‘, it seems like the ‘Roots‘ remake is on the fast track to start filming.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

ryanmurphy

 

What do ‘Glee‘, ‘American Horror Story‘ and ‘Nip/Tuck‘ all have in common? If you guessed the same creator, I saw you look it up, but you’re right! Besides being the Emmy Award-Winning mind behind the shows, he wrote and directed various episodes of those, as well. Ryan Murphy is a good name to bet on in the game of innovative TV series because he is still a wild card in the game. Coming at a time where numerous movies are being greenlit for adaptation to the small screen, an original idea is pure money.

If you’re a fan of soda, then i’m sure you have heard of Dr Pepper, which is a sweet cool soda that has quenched millions of people’s thirsts over many decades. If you are from Texas, then you would know the soda referred to as Dublin Dr Pepper, which was Dr Pepper made with real pure sugar, rather than the horrible corn syrup that infects the rest of sodas today. Dublin Dr Pepper was in fact made in Dublin, Texas, which is a small town on the west side of Texas, about two hours from Dallas. And I’m sure, you’ve heard that the Dr Pepper/Snapple corporation sued and eventually destroyed the Dublin Dr Pepper brand, name, and town, even though Dublin has been around for more than 120 years.

Hi, Bryan Here….

This is HUGE.  And not good.  In my opinion, Ball is one of the most talented showrunners in tv history.  Without him on ‘True Blood’, I can very much see this not being as good as it once was.  And with Ball out, I’d bet dollars to donuts there is going to be a major revamp to crew and writing on the series.

It’s brutally impossible to fathom The Doors’ 1971 Elektra Records masterpiece, “L.A. Woman,” is the Los Angeles quartet’s sixth and final album with singer/poet/shaman Jim Morrison, not to mention sounding as fresh and amazing as anything that has come out since, by any band. What’s equally impossible is to hear an album you’ve heard millions of times in your life for the very first time, and yet, “Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman” is a uniquely superb and insightful document chronicling the making-of the band’s storied swan song that allows you to experience this magnificent piece of work for what feels like the very first time (again.)

Bryan Reviews Toy Story 2 in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Toy Story 2 is definitely in my top list of best sequels ever.  It shares the list with Godfather 2.  It’s always a crap shoot with sequels, but Pixar did it right with Toy Story.  It added new lovable characters along with some new villains.  And again with the 3D, this sequel amps of the 3D from the first film.  The story is just as good as the first one and adds new laughs and plot.  It never seems redundant from the first film and is always quick to satisfy.  Also let us note that this was the first time Pixar toyed with my emotions making me choke up.  They enjoy doing this to me in later movies like Wall-E, and Up.  But, Toy Story 2 3D edition is badass on all levels and any 3D enthusiast and lover of films and Pixar should rush out to get this.

I Wish I Was the Moon

Airdate  7/31/2011

Okay, so this past episode of True Blood was less than stellar. It has been a while since my favorite vampire show since Buffy has bored me, but like I said, it was less than awe inspiring. But hey, I will be the first to admit, I was hoping for something more, so my expectations where a little raised because of last week’s episode. I kept waiting for something to happen, and it never really did. Sure, I’m impatient at times and yes I guess important things did happen this episode, so lets get on to the recap:

‘Me and the Devil’

Airdate 7/24/2011

True Blood episode “Me and the Devil”, while good in its own right, was clearly a filler episode. It moved and built up the many story lines that the show is working this season. On that note, it almost feels like the show is trying too hard to keep this many story lines going and keeping them interesting. The episode itself felt rushed and hurried. The transitions from scene to scene were abrupt and not what I’m used to when watching True Blood. Each scene basically gave us 5 minutes with each story line. It was a little on the frustrating side. It was like getting a massage five minutes at a time, when it starts to feel good it changes. But again as a whole I did enjoy the episode. Now on to a re-cap of the story lines!

Film Review: ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2017

When you have names like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep coming together for a movie, you expect something out of this world. That’s not really the case with this talented trio in their new film called ‘The Post‘. Don’t get me wrong, ‘The Post‘ is a good film, but like Spielberg’s recent movies in ‘Lincoln‘ and ‘War Horse‘, there is something magical missing. While the performances are all very good and the movie looks visually pleasing at all times, the script and delivery is a bit on the nose with emotion or lack thereof. Still, this is an important movie to watch in our current political climate as I imagine the true story it was based on back in the early 1970s, which paved the way and kept our “freedom of press” in tact.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Mummy’ (2017)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

The Mummy (1999) is by far one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.  Written and directed by Stephen Sommers, it works as an homage to classic monster movies, great adventures, and old school “hero of the day” golden age of cinema films. Starring Brendan Fraser, Rachel Weisz, and what can only be described as a truly breakout performance by Arnold Vosloo as The Mummy Himself, Imhotep!

You just can’t keep Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio away from each other.

This insane true story is set in the 1920s where the members of the Osage nation in Oklahoma were brutally killed after someone discovered oil beneath their land. This went on for a while as a serial murder rampage, which was one of the first big cases the FBI investigated.

There are several elements that go into play when a movie is prepping for their initial debut. There is an advertising campaign, and the goal is to saturate the atmosphere with the upcoming movie, all designed to get us to show up in theaters and plunk down a chunk of our hard-earned cash. One of the first type of media to invade our subconscious is the all-important movie poster. This may seem like a small thing, but each poster is carefully designed to share just enough information that will reel us a bit closer, then just like when fishing, set that hook.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Gold - Ramirez, McConaughey & Howard

 

A prospector… Gold Rush pioneers or Yosemite Sam have nothing on the belief of Kenny Wells (Matthew McConaughey). Kenny comes from a prestigious line of miners. His grandfather founded Washoe Mining Co. and built a sterling reputation until his death. Under Kenny’s leadership, the company suffered a plummet in profits. Repeatedly shunned by many investors, he hunted for new opportunities to pump life back in the Washoe name. All Kenny had in the world was Kay (Bryce Dallas Howard) who gives new meaning to the phrase “stand by your man.” Suddenly, Kenny sees the pathway to his future in a dream. Along with the scientific expertise of Mike Acosta (Edgar Ramírez), Washoe’s blood turns red and hot. Read the rest of this entry »

4K UHD Review: ‘Argo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

71utvof7u7l-_sl1127_

THE FILM

Ben Affleck’sArgo’ is a brilliantly told film.  Affleck has come a long way since ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Mallrats‘.  In my opinion, Affleck has gotten better with each directorial effort with ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘The Town’, and now ‘Argo’, which I think is his best yet.  Not only is ‘Argo’ a great film, it has a smart script, good acting, clever humor in a serious and tragic situation, and impeccable period detail that rivals AMC’s ‘Mad Men’.

Film Review: ‘The Birth of a Nation’!!

by Janet White on Oct 7th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

the-birth-of-a-nation-sermon

 

When I first heard that I had the assignment to review The Birth of a Nation, I was discouraged. The 1918 version was so full of racist stereotypes, blackface, and made a hero of such a horrible organization, the Ku Klux Klan. I didn’t want to screen the 2016 film of the same name (I don’t research prior to a screening, so the experience is fresh and unbiased by propaganda). Admittedly, after watching the 2016 version, I was still discouraged. Though told from the Black point of view, I saw such atrocities committed on both sides of the racial line.   Read the rest of this entry »

FILM REVIEW: “OPERATION MEKONG”

by Justin Cline on Oct 4th, 2016

operation-mekong_poster_goldposter_com_1

Justin C. here,…

Operation Mekong waits until the final credits roll to inform its audience that the film they’ve just witnessed is based on a true story. I can’t help but feel that this may have been by design as it certainly would have lessened my enjoyment to think that the filmmakers meant for me to believe even for an instant that what I was watching was true.

More than anything else, Mekong is an action movie, but does the element of realism hurt it or help it? Read the rest of this entry »

Chris Benoit Biopic In the Works!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

In news I thought I’d never report on, Hollywood is making a Chris Benoit biopic with Lexi Alexander (Green Street Hooligans, Punisher: War Zone) in the director’s chair. if you’re unfamiliar with the name Chris Benoit, I’ll give you a little background. Chris Benoit is a taboo subject in the WWE and has been for an umber of years. Yes, the WWE as in World Wrestling Entertainment, where Chris Benoit was one of the best wrestlers and superstars the company has ever seen. He held the champion titles a number of times and was one of the best in the business in his career. His nickname was the Rabid Wolverine and was called Toothless Aggression, since he was missing a tooth.

Film Review: ‘Sully’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

We all remember what took place in New York on January 15th, 2009. Pilots Captain Chelsey ‘Sully’ Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles took an Airbus A320 with 155 passengers aboard out of LaGuardia Airport to their destination. However, a couple of minutes after takeoff, a freak accident with a flock of birds took out both engines of the airplane, leaving the Airbus without any power and no airport immediately in range to land. Making a calculated decision to save everyone’s life, Sully was forced to land the plane in the very cold waters of the Hudson River.

Film Review: ‘War Dogs’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

thumbnail_24172

War Dogs‘ looks good on paper and the trailer for the film sells the movie’s comedy and fun moments. It seemed like the perfect project for director Todd Phillips (‘The Hangover’ trilogy, ‘Road Trip’, ‘Old School’) as he reunites with Bradley Cooper and adds Jonah Hill and Miles Teller to this story, based on true events about two school friends who love to smoke up and run guns for the government – some of which might be illegal. This is a very different film for Phillips from what we’re used to, and unlike the trailer, the film isn’t all that funny. Sure, there are some moments of small laughter here and there, due to Jonah Hill’s character, but the rest is Phillips’ wink to a mix of gangster movies, including ‘Scarface’, ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Casino’, and even a bit of ‘Drive’.

The trailer for ‘USS Indianapolis: Men of Courage‘ has officially arrived and this is one of Nicolas Cage’s movies that I have been really excited about. We still don’t have a release date, but the clip shows one hell of a tense thriller that will be worth the wait. Starring Nicolas Cage (‘National Treasure‘), Tom Sizemore (‘Saving Private Ryan‘), Thomas Jane (‘The Mist‘) and Yutaka Takeuchi (‘Letters From Iwo Jima‘) and is directed by Mario Van Peebles (‘Red Sky‘).

Film Review: ‘Oddball’!

Beka P., Here…

oddball-post

Oddball, directed by Stuart McDonald, is an unexpected true tale about a chicken farmer and his misbehaving dog, Oddball, and how with a bit of determination and some help from family, anything is possible. Swampy, played by beloved Aussie actor, Shane Jacobson, is somewhat of an outcast. A widowed chicken farmer on the outskirts of town, he doesn’t much care what people think of his strange ways, or his strange dog, Oddball. The only caveat there is that Oddball seems to always be getting into trouble with the townspeople. So much so that Oddball is out of chances.

There is one hell of a cast too that co-stars with Bryan Cranston too, and I bet this will earn Cranston yet another award, along with a few other people here. The trailer looks amazing, and I can’t wait for ‘The Infiltrator‘ to come out on July 15th.

Lying in the shadows of Making a Murderer and Serial are true crime dramas that are aching to be discovered- stories that are dying to see the light the day. Wrongful convictions are becoming a larger piece of the true crime genre, sadly because more of them are being uncovered. Thankfully, there are more people wanting to tell these stories and audiences are ready to listen.

Record Store Day 2016 is coming up this weekend, so I thought I’d talk with one of my favorite Record Companies Varèse Sarabande on what we can expect from them this year. I talked with Cary Mansfield, who is the Vice President of Catalog over at Varèse Sarabande. They are releasing FIVE different albums this year for Record Store Day and we go into detail on each release. We also discuss the importance of Record Store Day, how Record companies decide on what to release, and how the whole process works.  It was a fun and lively interview for sure. We even talk about some upcoming releases that will sure knock your socks off, including ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday‘!

Film Review: ‘Miracles from Heaven’!!

by Janet White on Mar 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Miracles from Heaven - Family

Miracles from Heaven opens in a beautiful richly colored forest and Christie Beam defining a miracle, an occurrence that “cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws.” Cut to a nice size farm and the interior of a rolling tire as a little girl is giggling and could there be a sweeter beginning. The Beam family has three girls: Abigail (Brighton Sharbino), Annabelle (Kylie Rogers), and Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) and two loving parents Christy (Jennifer Garner) and Kevin (Martin Henderson). Tragedy mysteriously strikes the middle child and thus begins the trial of this family’s strength, love, and faith.  Read the rest of this entry »

I am a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. I’ve never hidden it, but I am. I wasn’t in love with him and his boyish good looks like other girls my age were, I recognized him from ‘Growing Pains‘, after all. He didn’t begin his career as absolutely gorgeous, that developed over time. I had to learn to love his work for what it was. Saying that, Leo’s been overlooked for that naked, golden, guy many times before he finally won his first Oscar at last night’s award show.

Could this finally be the year for Leonardo DiCaprio to take home that Oscar gold? It very well could be for his performance in ‘The Revenant‘. This is a movie that went through a few directors and actors before it landed on the ‘Birdman‘ director Alejandro G. Inarritu and Leo. At one point the studio wanted Park Chan-wook (‘Oldboy‘) to direct Samuel L. Jackson in the film, but that all fell through. Then the film went to John Hillcoat to direct Christian Bale in the film, before landing on Inarritu and DiCaprio.

Film Review: ‘Concussion’!!

by Janet White on Dec 25th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Concussion - Omalu

 

Football, especially in Texas, is king and they are not alone in this mindset.  In Concussion, Pittsburgh, PA’s love for the game (as well as the rest of the country’s) and the NFL’s reign over it endangered Dr. Bennet Omalu’s (Will Smith) life.  Against all odds, Dr. Omalu, a forensic pathologist discovered and worked to educate the masses of the mental dangers of playing the beloved sport.  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and its related diseases, named by Dr. Omalu since he discovered the disease, was and possibly still is affecting football players from kids to professionals.  Dr. Omalu is from Nigeria and holds America in high esteem, but his reverence is about to be tested.

Based on the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster where several climbers lost their lives, director Baltasar Kormákur (‘2 Guns‘) shows us what happened in those days that led up to that horrifying experience. I consider myself a little bit of a daredevil here and there. I love to bungee jump whenever I can, although I admit it’s been a while since I have, but I don’t think I have the guts to climb a mountain like Everest, which is the tallest mountain on the globe at almost 30,000 feet in the air. But year after year, people trek out there and climb it and succeed, where others don’t.

Film Review: ‘American Ultra’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

american-ultra-jesse-eisenberg-600x414

This late summer movie ‘American Ultra‘ mixes a good stoner comedy with high octane action with a great cast and some decent laughs throughout. You can add to that a good amount of bloody violence in the second half of things. That all being said, ‘American Ultra‘ seems to lose its steam far from the climax of the movie, and seems to just go through the motions until the end. Still, it’s a fun popcorn film to end the summer on. Director Nima Nourizadeh, whose only previous film was the found footage party movie, ‘Project X‘, leaves the handheld camera on the table here, and delivers some decent long shots of violence and action, which is a step up in his career.

What is love in the mind of an addict?  What would you do to prove your love under a heroin haze?  Heaven Knows What takes the viewer on a twisted walk through the dark world of addiction on the streets of New York City.  The audience follows Harley (Arielle Holmes), a young woman whose addiction to heroin is almost as powerful as her addiction to her boyfriend, Ilya (Caleb Landry Jones).  Or is it the other way around?  Trying to make sense of a drug-ridden mind’s motivation or intention is a lost cause.  Perhaps this fact led to the film’s title.  Truly, who could understand why an addict would do anything.

Spare Parts reminds you why it’s always a good idea to root for the underdog. You may not have heard of this film, or its director, or maybe even the majority of its actors… but that’s no reason to take a hard pass. Spare Parts is based on the true story of a group of Hispanic high school students who form a robotics team that goes on to compete in a national competition against college teams who are better equipped, better trained and better funded. Needless to say, the obstacles they face along the way are many.

A few things are expected when you view a Tim Burton film…dark comedy, Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter, and a twisted outcome.  Big Eyes is different.  The true story of Margaret D.H. Keane/Margaret (Amy Adams), a renowned artist, is told in bright light.  The only seemingly twisted or dark aspect of Big Eyes are the twin pools of the deepest fathoms that are the eyes of the people in Margaret’s paintings.  Big Eyes follows the sad yet courageous journey of Margaret from the escape from her first marriage to her triumph of finding her self as well as her voice.

Unbroken is a film that should break you; the true story of Louis Zamperini (Jack O’Connell) and what he went through should leave you shell shocked. This movie doesn’t have that effect, and that is where it falls short. The film is cast brilliantly, the cinematography is gorgeous, the screenplay (Coen Brothers) is well done, and I can’t even complain that much about Angelina Jolie’s directing. But when you put it all together, something doesn’t sit right with me.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

‘The Doctor and the Devils’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

doctoranddevils

 

THE FILM

The Doctor and The Devils‘ is a gothic thriller from the same production company that issued ‘The Fly‘, ‘Spaceballs‘ and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights‘ – Brooksfilms. Until I researched a little for this review, I didn’t even realize Mel Brooks‘ company made anything other than the classic hilarity his name automatically recalls. Brooks picked up the script from legendary poet Dylan Thomas, wherein the story of true life grave robbers, Burke and Hare is told. Maybe it was Brooks’ success with ‘The Elephant Man‘ that led him back to the surgical-experimentation game, whatever the conditions were, ‘The Doctor and The Devils‘ did not receive the same praise.

Hey guys, Jana here,

benghazi_victims_for_site

There are directors that you want telling the heart-wrenchingly true stories based on fact. Spielberg was unflinchingly loyal to history when he made ‘Schindler’s List‘ and ‘Saving Private Ryan‘. Mel Gibson brought the history of William Wallace to life as he led the Scots in revolt against England in ‘Braveheart‘. Ridley Scott dove into the horrific tale of ‘Blackhawk Down‘ and pulled no punches with the details. ‘Act of Valor‘, ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘ and ‘Lone Survivor’ are all cut from the same cloth as the previously mentioned films. The memory and honor of the dead lives on through these fact-based projects. One name you won’t see at the top of my wish list to direct a piece like these is Michael Bay.

Dolphins are not fish…they are mammals.  Playful, passionate, and full of expression, dolphins have ways of letting you know what’s on their mind.  Perfectly timed faces full of water from a blowhole, varying pitches of speech, and solemn silences each have their own purpose and meaning.  Fish cannot easily do that.  Dolphin Tale 2 is a wondrous display of these characteristics.  Picking up where the Dolphin Tale left off, Winter (portrayed by the “real” Winter) still lives in Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  She is the main attraction and the aquarium has grown by leaps and bounds.  For those who have seen the first Dolphin Tale (don’t worry it won’t ruin the movie, if you haven’t), Winter’s first friend was Sawyer Nelson (Nathan Gamble).  Sawyer has learned a lot about marine life during his time with Winter and the Clearwater Marine Aquarium.  So much so that he is invited to an educational high-seas adventure by a prestigious college.  Such an invitation would be a marine enthusiast’s dream, but it comes with a price.  Three months at sea, far from his friend, Winter, and the area.

Few things entertain me more than a good serial killer book/movie/TV show. I know, it’s a strange interest to have, but this is one of the milder interests of mine. We’ve heard about the Charles Manson slayings going into production for a series with Rob Zombie involved, this time it’s another killer that is getting the mini-series treatment.  David Berkowitz, Son of Sam, the .44 Caliber Killer – whatever you want to call him, he’s the next topic for a mini treatment.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Fargo‘ received an impressive 18 Emmy nominations, so of course FX renewed the show for a second season, which FX announced today at the TCA conference in L.A. ‘Fargo‘ will be back for ten episodes with an all-new cast, characters, location, and time period, and will be “based on a true story”. This is awesome news, because I think ‘Fargo‘ replaced ‘Breaking Bad‘ for me. That’s how good the first season was.

Black Mass‘ is going to be an excellent send-off for the summer movie season when it’s released next year on September 18, 2015. There is some major star-power in this flick. Every fangirl in the world is going to be in line for this one as it pairs up none other than the ‘captain of summer-movie revenue’ himself, Johnny Depp with the newer, but no-less glorious to the fangirl scene, Benedict CumberbatchJoining Depp and Cumberbatch are Jesse Plemons (‘Breaking Bad‘), Dakota Johnson (‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘) and Juno Temple (‘Maleficent‘, ‘Horns‘). The film is based on the book ‘Black Mass: The True Story of an Unholy Alliance Between the FBI and the Irish Mob‘ written by Boston Globe reporters Dick Lehr and Gerard O’Neill
