Jason Bateman is a genius no matter which side of the camera he’s working, his latest project he will produce is ‘Game Night‘. The studio backing the picture, New Line, has picked up a pair of writers that are nothing short of the comedy gold standard, Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley. In addition to successes separately, the pair is the powerhouse responsible for the script for 2015’s ‘Vacation‘.

Film Review: ‘Vacation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

“We’re on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose!” Those were wise, unearthing words from America’s family man Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) as he trekked his family from Chicago to California inside the Griswold family truckster back in 1983. Clark, along with his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and their two kids Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron) encountered a variety of hilarious obstacles and problems along their difficult road trip, but they stuck together as a family and proved that any American family can make it across country without killing one another…mostly.

The Griswolds are back and have planned a new vacation. However it won’t feature Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo this time around, although they do make appearances here. This film follows Clark’s son Rusty (Ed Helms) and his wife (Christina Applegate), and their two kids as they embark on a road trip to Wally World. Rusty tells his family that it was the best time in his life and he wants hi own family to experience the fun and adventure of a family cross-country road trip. I guess they aren’t going to Hawaii again.

Hi, Bryan Here…

05_Flatbed_1 - DECEMBER

“We’re gonna have the hap – hap- hap – happiest holiday since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny ‘fucking’ Kaye.” One of the best Christmas movies of all time is National Lampoon’s ‘Christmas Vacation’, and tis the season right now, we decided to do one of our famous ‘Re-Casts’ on this beloved and hilarious film. Now we all know this film was perfectly cast already, but in this time of re-makes, we might as well let the Hollywood execs know our suggestions if they so choose to remake this. So behold, the Re-Cast of ‘Christmas Vacation‘. Enjoy the show.

National Lampoon’s ‘Vacation’ To Be Rebooted!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

New Line has begun negotiations with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to helm a ‘Vacation’ reboot.  Daley and Goldstein wrote the script back in 2009 and it plays both like a sequel and a reboot according to HWR.  This new adventure will center around Rusty Griswold (the son of the Chevy Chase character) who is now all grown up and has a family of his own.  They set out on their own family vacation and encounter some of the same disasters that we all have come to love.

Written By: Bryan Kluger….

 

A couple of very cool, indie horror movies are making their way to Blu-ray on November 7th from Scream Factory and IFC Midnight. They are ‘Killing Ground‘ and ‘Darkness Rising‘, which you can read about below. Both films are terrifying and very well made, and I hope the filmmakers are on their way to make more movies. I even got to talk with the director of ‘Killing Ground’ – Damien Power a while ago about his process and inspiration in the horror genre. He’s a director to watch out for. I can’t wait for you all to see these.

‘Westworld’ Season 2 Looks Bloodier Than Ever!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 23rd, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

Westworld isn’t your typical amusement park. Intended for rich vacationers, the futuristic park allows its visitors to live out their most primal fantasies with the robotic “hosts.” However, the robotic hosts have evolved an artificial consciousness that is similar to, yet diverges from, human consciousness. No matter how illicit the fantasy may be, there are no consequences for the park’s guests, allowing for any wish to be indulged; but there is a price to be paid.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Car_rental

You’re going on vacation with the family or you’re trying to get home from a business trip and nothing seems to go right in the travel department. The flight is delayed, there are 300 people in line for security, not a single employee will help you, and the rent car you reserved is not even in the system. We all have our horror travel stories, some worse than others. In these situations, most of us keep our cool, grab a beer at the airport, and wait for it all to blow over. That being said, our inner monologue would tell a different story, in that we would love to just explode and tell off an employee who isn’t helping our situation at all.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Just What is ‘Extortion’?

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-13 at 5.55.30 PM

How much would you pay someone that has kidnapped your family and threatening to kill them if you don’t pay them millions of dollars? If money wasn’t in the cars, what would you do in that particular situation? That’s the question that is asked in a new film called ‘Extortion’, which stars Danny Glover, Eion Bailey (Once Upon a Time), and Oscar nominated actor Barkhad Abdi (Captain Phillips). If I was in this situation, I feel I would have two options. One, cut my losses and start over with beautiful wife (or wives) with big breasts with all the cocaine and Dr. Pepper we can handle, OR I would hire John Wick to take care of things. Since the latter option is movie magic, I’m going with option one. It’s what God would have wanted anyway.

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn are ‘Snatched’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

thumbnail_25315

There is a new trailer for a movie called ‘Snatched‘, which stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as mother and daughter who vacation in the tropics together, but somehow end up “snatched” and kidnapped by some evil people. So Goldie Hawn came out of retirement to do this movie? It’s been 15 years since we last saw Goldie in a film, but I guess she is passing the torch to Amy Schumer here. The film is directed by Jonathan Levine who made ‘50/50‘, ‘Warm Bodies‘, and ‘The Night Before‘.

Film Review: ‘The Lure’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 31st, 2017

Suzanne L. here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-31 at 10.07.31 AM

In a mermaid tale more aligned with Hans Christian Anderson’s Little Mermaid than the less bleak Disney version, The Lure combines fairytale, horror, new wave/disco musical, and love story into a frenzied 90 minutes that still pulls off some poignant, quiet moments. Filmed in Poland, it is short film director Agnieszka Smoczynska’s first feature length project, and it is a promising effort.

Kay Cannon, writer and producer for hits like ‘30 Rock‘, ‘Pitch Perfect‘ and ‘New Girl‘, is stepping behind the camera for the first time with ‘The Pact’. The film has already got some A-list talent attached in the form of Leslie Mann (‘The Other Woman‘, ‘Vacation‘), Ike Barinholtz (‘Suicide Squad‘, ‘Sisters‘) and WWE superstar John Cena (‘Sisters’, ‘Daddy’s Home‘).
