Lionsgate releases fan favorite, ‘Dredd‘ on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack June 6. The film stars Karl Urban (‘Star Trek Beyond‘), Olivia Thirlby (‘Juno‘), and Lena Headey (‘Game of Thrones‘). Director Pete Travis (‘Vantage Point‘) took a script from Alex Garland (‘Ex Machina‘) and rebooted the story which began as a classic comic book series in 1977. Sylvester Stallone had a run at playing the title role in 1995 and Urban has given us his own rendition of the character in this film.

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.

Film Review: ‘Human Capital’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 27th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

HC 3 - Valeria Bruni-Tedeschi  Fabrizio Gifuni

What do a hit-and-run, a risky business venture, and several unlikely romantic pairings all have in common? They are each part of a masterfully interlocking plot that hints at the motives and aspirations of the characters behind them, as well as the far-reaching consequences of the daily choices people make.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Guy Ritchie Is Looking to Make A King Arthur Movie!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 28th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Guy Ritchie (2)

 

Tale as old as time…no, not ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. I’m talking about the King Arthur legend. The story inspired such classic movies like ‘Excalibur‘, ‘King Arthur‘, and BBC’s ‘Merlin‘. There are some less classic offerings from ‘Monty Python and the Holy Grail‘ and Disney’s 1963 animated ‘The Sword in The Stone‘. But I digress.

BRIDGE – CHAPTER FOUR

by Justin Cline on Nov 16th, 2011

CHAPTER FOUR

 

Bridge was faced with a decision, a choice between two evils, neither of which was in his favor.  Should he stretch his light out to reveal what had become of his would-be client or draw the candle closer to inspect the ruins of his own gut?  In the end, the woman won out if only because he was still in a state of shock, and he knew he needed to take advantage of that fact before it wore off and the pain of what had happened to him set in.

The summer months are quickly approaching the horizon like the fury of black iron and steel. Soon, it’ll be hotter outside than hell and the all of the coal that powers the engines on the Santa Fe line.

Summer is that time of year where most people, like myself, are desperately wanting to travel and be mobile for a little while. We want to escape the confines of office deadlines and see the world from the vantage point of a moving car or fast aero plane. For the folks of Johnny Cash’s time, they may still dream of seeing things from the opening of a big box car, traveling East and West on the Rock Island Line or the Union Pacific Railroad. Sadly, for most of us that era of American life has whizzed on by, but the songs collected on “All Aboard The Blue Train” sure does the job of getting us to a time in our minds where we wish to ride the open rails.

Film Review: ‘Mile 22’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2018

Mile 22 is a movie where John Malkovich (in a weird hairpiece) looks straight into the camera and says, “He’s not a double agent…He’s a triple agent!” That pretty much sums up the quality of this latest collaboration between Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg. It is loud, full of action, and constantly twists itself in stupid knots trying to be more than a fun summer blockbuster.

Mile 22 opens with a decently long prologue of a team known as ‘Overwatch’ (no relation to the video game), led by Mark Wahlberg infiltrating a Russian sleeper cell home in a suburban town. Wahlberg’s on the ground team consists of Lauren Cohan and Ronda Rousey. In the sky, there is John Malkovich and a group of computer nerds watching every aspect of the operation. There are also two males on Wahlberg’s team which I will address in a minute. This opening sequence is really, really well done, It has a lot of tension and the suspense builds and builds through the final moments. Despite my enjoyment of the scene overall they still went out of their way to show that ‘Overwatch’, which is allegedly the best of the best and doesn’t exist, is also really terrible at their job because all the planning and technology advantages they still let some 20-year-old guy get the drop on the two male members of ‘Overwatch’ killing them.

Film Review #2: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 24th, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War isn’t just the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie is the culmination, better yet coronation, of the universe to this point. This is the film that will actually be remembered and talked about years from now. Ten years in the making, eighteen films deep, and at least 30 characters so that we could get here. It’s astonishing that they pulled this off. Infinity War, when all is said and done, will likely be the crowning achievement of this cinematic universe.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

The Ryan Gosling Jacket Investigation!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 13th, 2017

Written By: Dan Moran….

There have been tweets and style articles written about Ryan Gosling’s jackets over the past year, but after seeing Blade Runner 2049 last night, are we sure he’s ever read a script? Would it really be so ridiculous to assume that almost every role that Ryan Gosling has ever played was based on his agent just laying two jackets out and Ryan deciding which one was better? More importantly, is Ryan Gosling even a good actor? Are we sure his jackets aren’t giving him this power?

An investigation has been opened.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #8!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m sure there are going to be a ton of Martin Scorsese directed scenes in this column, but the first one is definitely from Casino, which had Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci come together for a third time to make a film again. With the huge success of Goodfellas, De Niro and Pesci basically play very similar characters to that film, but this one is set in Las Vegas in the Tangiers casino, which is a fake casino, but based off the real life people and Italian mafia they were all connected to. Casino is a fascinating film and one of the better gangster movies of all time.
