Dec/2017

Written by: Bryan Kluger…..

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

WWE: Who Will Win the 2017 ‘Royal Rumble’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

WWE-Royal-Rumble-2017-1-670x388

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year! No, not the holidays! It’s time for the Royal Rumble, which takes place in January and paves the way for the main event at Wrestlemania every year. Well at least for the last 30 years it has. The Royal Rumble is a Pay-Per-View put on by WWE every year with the Royal Rumble match consisting of 30 superstars entering the ring every 90 seconds. The only way to be eliminated is if you’re thrown over the top rope and your feet land on the ground until one is left in the ring standing. That one winner goes on to the main event at Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of all.

The ‘Powerman 5000’ Experience!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 6th, 2016

Jennifer S., Here…

MNR1377

Good Day everybody, and so here begins my foray into writing for local music events.  I have been endeavoring to insert myself into the local music crowd in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for what feels like ages.  I’m not sure how it’s going, but it doesn’t really matter.  I have my own aspirations, but when I got to local music events it’s because I truly appreciate the music scene and those that are fighting every day to keep it alive… on the plus side… I get to see bands that I have just been dying to see for what also feels like a very long time.  This past Saturday, April 16 of the year 2016, I finally got to see Powerman 5000 and a few other local bands that are really kicking ass right now; but I’ll get to that in a minute.

We’re here with episode #61 of the Multi-Media Men and Women Podcast, where it was a small gathering. Only myself and Susan Kamyab from ThisChixFlix were at the mic, as we had a lovely discussion on the holiday movies. First though, Susan had never seen the original ‘Star Wars‘ movies until a couple of weeks ago, and we talk about her experience into that fantastic world. We also discuss watching ‘Hateful Eight‘, ‘Joy‘, ‘The Revenant‘, and how well ‘The Force Awakens‘ might do opening weekend.

Hell in a Cell is known as the most brutal structure in the WWE. No other match brings with it the sense of foreboding at the mere mention of its name. The WWE Universe waited in anticipation as the Pay Per View that bore the name of the most dreaded match unfolded before them (shown on the WWE Network for the low low monthly rate of $9.99 or free for the first month #BetterThanNetflix) The night saw every Championship defended, as well as honor defended and legends put to rest.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I really hate writing these, but one of my favorite directors of all time has just passed away. He wasn’t known for having the best camera shots like Kubrick, nor was he known to make big budget blockbusters like Steven Spielberg. No, he was known for scaring the absolute hell out of us over the years with his iconic horror movies. This man is known as Wes Craven.

Quentin Tarantino has given us small slivers of information about his newest undertaking. We first knew it would be a Western and that it was titled ‘The Hateful Eight‘. The director held a table read of the script in a rough format for 1,200 of his fans willing to pay the $100 cover charge. The most ardent Tarantino fans savored the onslaught of information, we speculated on the cast and we held our breath for more. The iconic director has given us the cast, and the film gods rejoiced, ok – I rejoiced.

WWE: An Evening Spent Inside ‘Hell in a Cell’ 2014!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

The superstars were set. The lights and fireworks were bright and loud. And a giant sixteen-ton cage of steel was sharp, fierce, and ready for the carnage that was to take place inside. WWE’sHell in a Cell‘ 2014 (the sixth event of this caliber, but 30 matches total) was a force to be reckoned with. Blood was shed, title belts were on the line, chairs were slammed, tables were broken, and special appearances were made to a sold out crowd in Dallas, Texas at the American Airlines Center. A famous Beatle put it simply, “The Long and Winding Road“, which is a great lyric that could be used to describe the past several months of WWE.

Top 10 List of Reboots We Don’t Want To See!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Terminator-5-TV-Series


Like Bill Murray once said, “he’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.” You might have thought he was talking about a weather-predicting rodent, but no, he was actually talking about studio executives (the “he” is collective). Hollywood, like any business, is in it to make money. Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they choose to rehash tried and true film formulas over and over again rather than take a chance on something new. While this is understandable (albeit infuriating), it doesn’t excuse the idea that EVERYTHING deserves to be re-made. Some films, like priceless art, should never be re-made and re-sold. Every time a classic film gets re-made, audiences hold their collective breaths and hope that it won’t be a straight shot in “the feels” (that nostalgic part of your brain that remembers, with fondness, all your pop culture favorites).

Michael “explosion” Bay is releasing his latest bastardization of 80’s culture unto the world in the shape of the beloved “heroes in a half shell”. In case you haven’t been following, this has been one cluster mess after another. From alien origins to white-washed villains, this movie begs the questions: “does Michael Bay hate the 80’s? Did he have some traumatically horrific experience with toys when he was a kid? Why does he have to take a giant dump on our collective fond memories time after time?”  Read the rest of this entry »

Here Is Ben’s Film Review of ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

Ben K., Here…

godzilla-2014-wallpaper-images-photos-0302091031

Despite a rich and incredibly varied film history, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more famous Japanese cinematic export than Godzilla. Born at Toho Company in 1954, he’s still alive and kicking ass, as it were, at the ripe age of sixty. Cast as a villain and a hero over the years, whatever his role, he has always been nature’s favorite solution to just about any problem. Six decades ago he was awakened by atomic bomb testing and took revenge on mankind for creating them. In this new Gareth Edwards iteration, other monsters feed on radiation from our nuclear power plants in order to wreak similar havoc, so Godzilla is sent to annihilate them.

McGruder will write and direct this project if it gets the greenlight and plans on being an R rated comedy for the silver screen. Oh man, if Uncle Ruckus graces the big screen across America, I’ll be the happiest guy in America. Right now, the project has a Kickstarter Fundraising campaign to help fund the film.

So I don’t know why, but it’s an R for ‘pervasive scariness.’”  How awesome is that??

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.

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #15!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Every time I watch this scene, I find myself wincing, shrinking in my seat and covering my eyes, as if I’m watching it for the first time. I hate to say it, but I think we’ve all been here before. Maybe not as drastic as this, but some form of this – – we’ve all done it. This might be the most awkward and painful scene to watch in movie history, which is weird because it’s just one still shot of someone calling another person on the phone.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

maxresdefault

Here’s a new addition to the Boomstick Comics lineup – Favorite Movie Scene of the Day! If you’ve seen any of my interviews with filmmakers or actors, one questions I never forget to ask is What is your favorite scene in a movie that has always stuck with you? Everyone gives different answers and they are always caught off guard and have some fun answering this particular question. Just look how much fun Keanu Reeves had answering the question. It’s different than answering “What is your favorite movie?”, because it allows you to think to a specific moment in a film that really connected with you that you never seem to forget, quote, cry over, or laugh at. So I hope to bring some excellent scenes from movies that you’ve forgotten or haven’t seen in a long while in hopes of rekindling a relationship of passion with your favorite movies and characters.

Hey guys, Jana here,

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.

Film Review: BAYWATCH!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

baywatccast

We need to get one thing straight as we start this review. Baywatch is not a movie to be judged on it’s plot. This movie exists in the same realm as Horrible Bosses, Spy, We’re The Millers, 21 Jump Street, & Neighbors. It has just enough plot so that it can get from joke to joke or gag to gag as efficiently as possible. It succeeds in this regard and has a really high “joke landing” percentage. More importantly, as a vehicle for unbelievably attractive people to let loose and be funny, Baywatch goes above and beyond. It is a showcase for these actors to show they’re really, really funny.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

While Disney is busy making ‘Marvel‘ movies and new ‘Star Wars‘ films, they are finding it difficult to make original films these days, which is why they are taking their back catalogue of animated movies and remaking them in the live-action format. We’ve seen it with ‘The Jungle Book’, ‘Cinderella’, and the recent ‘Snow White’ films. Disney has no plans on stopping either, as with the release of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ and their upcoming ‘Lion King’ live action remake. After watching this new version of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘, I don’t have high hopes for future live action Disney films whatsoever.

Kevin Smith is everywhere these days. He’s making movies with food that wants to kill you, podcasting in multiple cities, selling his comic books at his retail stores, and even conducting interviews for IMDB at film festivals. “The guy is like MacGyver. No, motherfucker’s better than MacGyver.” Since his last film ‘Yoga Hosers‘, Smith has been making some DC television series on top of teasing us with stories of a ‘Clerks III‘ film and a ‘Mallrats‘ sequel series, both of which I would have sold my Michael Jackson statue to see.

Perhaps the second biggest WWE event of the year, the winner of the Rumble goes on to the main event of Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of them all. This 29th Royal Rumble took place in San Antonio, Texas at the Alamodome and had over 50,000 people in attendance. Before the Rumble match itself, there were several championship matches with interesting outcomes, which should tell the tale of what’s to come at Wrestlemania 33 in April. Now here’s a taste of the good, the bad, and the ugly of the Royal Rumble 2017.

Hey guys, Jana here,

first-blood_book-cover

If they make a Rambo movie in the jungle and Sylvester Stallone isn’t in it, did it really happen? This might be the question on some minds as we learned ‘Rambo: New Blood‘ is the title of brand new reboot of the property that will NOT include Sly. At this point in his career he needs it all: new blood, hair, hips whatever, but I digress.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 22nd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

Summer time means a million things to different people, but some things we can all agree on. Cook outs, swimming, catching lightning bugs, camping and baseball. It’s just as pure as mom’s apple pie and the star spangled banner and every spring, a new season swings into action and a new hope is born for your team to be a contender and play through October. The national past time has been the basis for a lot of movies and I’m making some sense of them all with my Top 10 favorite baseball movies.

Film Review: ‘Knight of Cups’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 9th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

maxresdefault

There are two types of people in this world. Those who love Terrence Malick films and those who don’t. I tend to be the former in all aspects, from his films ‘Days of Heaven‘, ‘Badlands‘, and ‘The Thin Red Line‘. Recently, Malick has become more experimental with his filmmaking, with the amazing ‘Tree of Life‘ and ‘To the Wonder‘. Malick hasn’t been telling traditional narratives in a sense of the standard Hollywood formula, but rather has told a story with very little dialogue exchanged between characters as they walk through cityscapes and nature with a narrator voice over, detailing a stream of consciousness.

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.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2‘ promises to be every bit as much an awesome ride as its predecessor. We’ve got a new mix tape our heroes will be kicking ass, and dancing, to. The first soundtrack was nominated for a Grammy, so this one has to up the ante. Plus new cast members including one suave, charming dude that wasn’t at all shy about kicking a chick’s ass in ‘The Hateful Eight‘, that’s right – Kurt Russell.

There will be more that come out for sure, so keep your eyes peeled. That being said, this is a good starting guide for what to expect. There looks to be some great ones as well as some not so great ones. Let us know what excites you most.

Bryan Kluger’s Best/Worst of 2015!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

1140-mfg-2015-Readers-Choice-Best-Movie-poll-collage-promo.imgcache.rev1449178940055.web.722.414

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 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 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. 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.

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.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

"Sambo" Shintaro,  Doglegs co-founder, and star of the documentary film Doglegs, strikes a fighting pose in Japan in this handout photo

I’m always excited to see a documentary in general, no matter what the subject matter is, but the icing on the cake is when I get to view a documentary on a subject that I never knew existed. Not only do I get to learn about this new subject matter, but I also get to go into the lives of the people who take part in whatever case study we’re watching. This wonderful documentary here by Heath Cozens is called ‘Doglegs‘ and gives us a glimpse at some of the lives who are involved in a pro-wrestling league in Japan. The kicker with this pro-wrestling league is that it consists of disabled people, some of whom can’t use their legs, arms, or even stand up straight.

Film Review: ‘American Girl: Grace Stirs Up Success’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

91FDu4fyoFL._SL1500_

THE FILM

Yet another ‘American Girl‘ film has been released under the name ‘Grace Stirs Up Success‘. If you’re unfamiliar with the ‘American Girl‘ franchise, you can read my previous hardcore action review of ‘Saige Paints the Sky‘. ‘American Girl‘ is basically a line of actual play dolls for girls ages 4-12. None of the films in this series have anything to do with a doll, but rather try and tell these young girls what life is really like on the outside once out of a federal prison, which brings us to ‘Grace Stirs Up Success‘.

I wasn’t quite sure of what to expect from ‘The Wolfpack‘. I went in only know a thing or two about this documentary, but what I got was so much more. Some of us turn to reading as a form of escapism and happiness where others might turn to religion, or nature. For me, it was always music and movies. After a hard day of work or school, I knew I could always come home and listen to a good record or watch a film and be totally content. It’s almost like being at home whenever I watch a movie or listen to music, no matter where I am.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 4!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE SERIES

 I believe that George R.R. Martin was put on this Earth to entertain and piss off the millions and millions of fans of his work, specifically ‘A Song of Ice and Fire‘, or as we have come to know it ‘Game of Thrones‘. If you’ve read the books, you knew what was coming in this fourth season of ‘Game of Thrones‘ on HBO, but for most of you, I’d imagine you were quite shocked, which is of course, nothing new in the world of Westeros. With shows like ‘Game of Thrones‘ and AMC’sThe Walking Dead‘, these creators, writers, and showrunners have perfectly crafted a story full of death, betrayal, and blood.

For the past eight months or so, we here at Boomstick and across the nation, have all been excited and looking forward to seeing a new film called ‘The Interview‘ that stars Seth Rogen and James Franco. We’ve posted trailers, posters, and articles related to the film, which follows Rogen and Franco playing versions of themselves who are tasked with heading to North Korea and taking out the supreme leader Kim Jong-Un.

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.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Phantom

Hollywood continuously proves the theory that projects travel in pairs. It may not be a widely known theory, in fact, I just created it, but that doesn’t mean i don’t have great conviction for the truth it represents. The topic in a dual role right now is ‘Phantom of the Opera‘, the novel from Gaston Leroux first published in 1909. Phantom, of course tells the story of the angelically voiced Christine who is the subject of the phantom’s obsessive thoughts. She loves Raoul, Raoul loves her, the phantom gets jealous. There are many nuances in the book, I’ve left out, there are many nuances in the cliff’s notes version I’ve left out, but none of that will matter if you watch the proposed TV series written by Tony Krantz.

3.4.11KevinSmithByLuigiNovi1

Kevin Smith is a film maker that turned the business of making movies on it’s head. He hit the jackpot with 1994’s ‘Clerks‘. The script had “personal experience” written all over it and it made a very unexpected splash. Since then Smith has laid some pretty decent comedy on film, excluding ‘Jersey Girl‘.  I adore most of his films and it all started with ‘Clerks‘. Smith kept the indie-style film making with him the whole way. Nothing could prove that more than his latest film, ‘Tusk‘.

Film Review: ‘Tusk’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

tusk-movie

There is no doubt that Kevin Smith belongs in the same bracket as some of the best directors and story tellers of all time. He along with Quentin Tarantino and a few other filmmakers in the early 90s made their own creative films on a very cheap budget and hit success and have continued to make films still to this day. But Kevin’s story is quite the fun one. This is a guy who loves comics and movies who dropped out of film school, worked at a video store and maxed out his credit cards to the tune of $20k to make his first film ‘Clerks‘.

evil-dead-movie-poster-small

 

 

Who hasn’t heard the age-old story of a couple of buddies heading out into the woods, evil woods, fumbling around looking for a cabin. Instead of a relaxing break from the mundane, they discover the ‘Necronomicon‘, or basically the ‘Book of the Dead‘. It’s not just a book in a dead language, there’s a taped translation of the text! How lucky could they be, right?! Instead of staying away from the creepy vibes that have to be emanating from this unholy tome, they do what a handful of morons would do and play the thing! Of course, this releases an evil so heinous that one by one the moronic teens are possessed until it’s down to one to defeat the evil dead and survive the night.

Supergirl Added To Stable Of TV Supes!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Supergirl_Vol_6_14

 

If you think about superhero television shows, or if you’re like me, you think of the dreck that was ‘Lois and Clark‘, ‘Mutant X‘, or ‘The Tick‘?  If it’s not one of those shows, then it’s probably something equally abysmal. With the resurgence of super-powered peeps making such an excellent showing at the box office – because why would they be creating so frakking many of them if they weren’t making some serious coin? So it stands to reason that the small screen is looking for new hit projects in the same vein.

In the world of film making, it’s fairly easy to blend into the crowd as someone that creates semi-commercially acceptable fare staying under budget and netting enough income for a studio to ask you to do it all over again. Then there are the niche directors that some can consider as controversial in their creation of genre films and fans either love them or hate them. Stanley Kubrick, Spike Lee, Peter Jackson and Lars von Trier are all among the type I’d quantify as niche directors.

Some days, I think my career choice didn’t end up exactly how I wanted then I’m reminded of what a charmed life I really lead. Sure, I’m not a transplant surgeon or even a serial killer tracker for the FBI, but I’ve got the most gravy job out there. Where else can I stay in the relative comfort of my own home, write about TV, movies, singers and theatre shows I love? I’m sure we can all do that from our parents’ basement, but I don’t have prison pallor from living underground for months on end with the only break to be for a Cheetos run. Part of this awesome opportunity I have in writing for Boomstick, is that I’m not only able, but encouraged to go see concerts, theatre runs, films whatever the case may be. It’s good being me! So I didn’t start this just to brag on my glorious job, I get to tell you all about a fantastic event I attended last Friday and the artist I got to spend some one-on-one time with.

While this is  great news for fans of ‘The Evil Dead‘, it managed to get even better. How could this get better? Campbell, who was the star of the original trilogy, confirmed on Twitter that he intends to star in the series!

I think we can all agree that ‘Ghostbusters‘ is one of the best films ever made. And I hate to say it, but it’s a 30-year old movie, which makes me very old. So, for the 30th anniversary, the movie studio is re-releasing the film in theaters for a limited time, starting August 29th. Now if you haven’t seen ‘Ghostbusters‘ in the theater, it is mandatory that you do so. And even if you have, it’s probably been a long while, so best make sure you get to your local theater and see it again.

BBC’sSherlock‘ is one of the best shows currently airing. One of the reasons is the witty banter between characters, another reason is who plays one of those characters, Benedict Cumberbatch. One of the bad things with being a fan of ‘Sherlock‘ is that our viewing season is only 3-4 episodes long, and we have to wait a bloody long time just to get those! We put up with it because the option of not having those few episodes is ultimately, far worse than the waiting.

The latest installment of ‘Ghostbusters‘ has turned into the questionable existence equivalent of the Loch Ness Monster of Hollywood. When someone reports that it’s in the making, I treat it like a Bigfoot sighting. “Pics or it didn’t happen” seems to be my response to not only the rumors of the giant furry humanoid living in the woods a mile from my house, or the claims that my kids actually get along away from home, this reaction  is also what I extend to any rumors or buzz that ‘Ghostbusters 3‘ is past anything but the talks stage.

Film Review: ‘Divergent’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

DIVERGENT

Ok, I’ll admit it. My name is Bryan Kluger, and I’m a Young Adult Movie virgin. I’ve never seen a ‘Twilight‘ movie nor have I seen either of ‘The Hunger Games‘ yet. And to be perfectly honest, I have not yet read any of these books that the movies were based on. Part of it is that I never got around to it while another part was that these stories didn’t really interest me. With ‘Twilight‘, my personal preference is to have my monsters whether they be vampires or werewolves, go on a nightly bender, wreaking havoc and killing for blood, only to have a hero stop their evil thirst and put them in their place. They are not to have vampires who wear glitter and talk about their feelings for three hours. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

Rebecca S., Here….

When I was a little girl, I would snuggle up on the couch with my dad and watch reruns of his favorite cartoon, Rocky and Bullwinkle. He would tell me all about “moose and squirrel”, Boris and Natasha, George of the Jungle, and Dudley Do-Right… but the one I loved best was Peabody’s Improbable History. It was clever, snarky, educational in the worst way, and full of horribly great puns (which I am still a sucker for). I was worried when going to see the new DreamWorks (Shrek, How to train your Dragon) movie Mr. Peabody and Sherman, that it would not live up to the kitschy cool of the original 5 minute shorts. I was pleasantly surprised to find a smart, fun movie that kept the cool (and the horribly great puns).

I like that. I officially coin ‘comtragical’ TM pending. The story in 3 separate acts stars gorgeous voices and wonderful voices from Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day.

Genre-bending features are not a really new thing. When they’re done right though, we stand up and cheer. Remember ‘Zombieland‘, a grisly zombie flick that made us scream – with laughter? ‘The Cabin in the Woods‘, ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show‘? If the movie can be categorized by more than one descriptor, it’s a genre-bender. ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ for example can go into Sci-Fi, Comedy, Musical and Horror categories. After all that explanation, I can tell you that I am excited for the release of the horror comedy musical, ‘Stage Fright‘.

Film Review: ‘Ride Along’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

20131107_ridealong_placeholder

Once or twice a year, we the people receive yet another installment in the form of a buddy cop film franchise where two unlikely people are paired up to take out the world’s most dastardly criminals. Very few of these movies are worthy of your time, while most of them are forgettable almost instantly. With Tim Story’s PG-13 ‘Ride Along‘, the latter is unfortunately the ultimate result here. It makes sense that Story directed this as he made ‘Barbershop‘ and the recent ‘Think Like A Man‘ film, which both ‘Ride Along‘ stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube starred in. I can see this movie doing well at the box office this weekend, but I expect negative reviews across the board.

Film Review: ‘Her’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

her_movie.jpg.CROP.promovar-mediumlarge

Usually, the month of January is reserved for films that tend to fall below the less than average category, and are almost always immediately forgettable and tend to leave a bad taste in your mouth like a caramel onion. However, with Spike Jonze’s original and fresh tale on the age old story of finding love in the most unlikely place, ‘Her‘ might be the one of the best films not only to be released in January, but in the last few years. I have no doubt that this beautiful and smart film will win tons of awards as well as make a decent sized dent at the box office by word-of-mouth.

Film Review: ‘The Legend of Hercules’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

legend-of-hercules-image01

Renny Harlin’sThe Legend of Hercules‘ is the first of two 3D Hercules movies coming out this year. After seeing this movie, it’s difficult to realize that Harlin actually directed films like ‘Cliffhanger‘ and ‘Die Hard 2‘, because whatever directing chops he had in the action genre were not available anywhere here. This PG-13 film tries to be ‘300‘ throughout its 90 minute run-time, but due to the terrible script, awful acting, poorly choreographed fight scenes, and laughable special effects, makes it seem more like a made-for-tv-movie on the Lifetime channel.

Bryan’s Top 15 Movie List of 2013!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

2013-best

And here we are, at the very end of 2013. What a year for movies. This was an amazing year for film. There were so many great independent films, documentaries, and movies that were just highly entertaining, that I’ve watched them more than five times already. As usual, as long as I’ve been doing this, my Top Movie list of the year is very different from most everyone else that has made a list. I don’t know why – well I do know, because I’m twisted and crazy. But how I base my list is a variety of factors, not ones that the Oscars base their opinions on, but rather a more humble and fun variety of factors. For example, did this movie make me stand up and slow clap, or did it make me slap the person next to me and yell ‘THAT WAS AWESOME’! It’s those kind of things. So without further delay, I present to you my TOP 15 list for 2013. Let me know if you disagree or agree, love or hate, or just want to say hi. Enjoy.

Fernando M., Here…

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Well folks, Oscar season is upon us today.  OK, so it’s still pretty far out, but how can we not be thinking about it already?  Especially when in this last year, only one film can truly be deemed worthy enough to win the coveted Best Picture award.  I know you’re all thinking it but are too afraid to say it, so I’ll do it for you.

Enjoy The New Hilarious ‘Anchorman 2’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

anchorman2

So the new trailer for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues just dropped. It. Looks. HILARIOUS!!! Holy crow, people this is going to be a great movie! We’ve got the same crazy crew led by Will Ferrell. I am a huge fan of his, anyway, and this one does not seem like it will disappoint. After reading some of the comments from the slack-jawed, fly-catching public and I don’t see how people are complaining that it doesn’t look funny or that they ALREADY hate it? Puh-lease. Either you’re a Will Ferrell fan or you’re not. If you’re not, chances are good you’re not going to like anything he’s in.

So I guess Kurt Russell is now officially a part of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise. And why shouldn’t he be? He is an avid car enthusiast, likes to do a lot of his own car stunt work and is somewhat of a professional driver. Hell, you can watch the bonus footage or the actual film of Quentin Tarantino’sDeath Proof‘ to see just how much Russell loves cars.

‘The Walking Dead’ Companion Series Headed To AMC!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2013

Jana B., Here….

 hr_the_walking_dead

Can there be such a thing as too much of AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead‘? I think….it’s possible. When I learned  that AMC is expanding another successful series into a scripted franchise, I have to wonder if the shambling zombies can keep my attention. After giving the go-ahead last week to Better Call Saul, a spinoff series from Breaking Bad, the network just announced that it is in the initial stages of developing a companion series to the mega hit The Walking Dead. The new series is set to televise in 2015.  It will be will be executive produced by The Walking Dead executive producers Robert KirkmanGale Anne Hurd and David Alpert for AMC Studios. Gale Anne Hurd is the standout among the three having learned directly at Roger Corman’s side. She has a laundry list of successful producing credits and quite a few writing credits to her name from ‘The Terminator‘ canon. And of course, Kirkman is the creator of all things ‘The Walking Dead‘.

Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer Are Clueless Idiots!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 lone_ranger_810

I don’t usually write open letters like this on the site, but I feel like I need to with the recent statements Johnny Depp and Armie Hammer made about American film critics. Their remarks about the press and journalists are asinine, childish, and unprofessional. I get that everyone is entitled to their opinion and are free to say whatever they feel like. But what Depp and Hammer said was wrong.

Film Review: ‘The Conjuring’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

THE CONJURING

 It’s been a couple of years since we had a great and pure horror film, capable of producing genuine scares. ‘The Conjuring‘ seems to have re-vitalized the genre this summer. Filmmaker James Wan brought us ‘Saw‘ and ‘Insidious‘, which both changed the horror genre when they were released. Now, Wan brings us ‘The Conjuring‘, where he set out to make an homage to the classic 60s and 70s horror films that rely on building tension and genuine scares rather than CG effects and gore that we have come to expect out of most horror flicks these days. The results pack a good and scary punch that box office receipts this weekend will score big with this frightening film.

Suzanne Here,

Screen shot 2013-05-16 at 5.01.51 PM

After the critical and financial success of J.J. Abrams first installment of the Star Trek reboot, we have been caught in a cycle of anticipation and apprehension leading up to Star Trek Into Darkness. Could Abrams possibly pull off a movie as fantastic or would we be left thinking he was spent after the first? Would he continue to remain true to the geekfest of science talk that places Trek above Wars? Would we get tired of the lens flares? Yes, Yes, and no.

Film Review: ‘Pain & Gain’ !!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

pain-and-gain-poster-final

Michael Bay made a film for $25 million over the past year. This is a budget that he hasn’t had since  his first film ‘Bad Boys‘ in 1995. Between then and now, he has epic $100 million dollar budgets and is known for his horrible filmmaking and amazing explosions and car chases. The $25 million movie in question is called ‘Pain & Gain‘ and is a true story as it tells us on screen, which is very difficult to believe while watching what happens during its two hour run time.

‘Mad Men’ Season 6 Begins April 7th on AMC!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

mad-men-season-6-photo_514x360

Season 6 of ‘Mad Men‘ will debut on April 7th on AMC, and the first episode will be written by creator Matthew Weiner and directed by Scott Horbacher, and will be a two hour season opener. Star Jon Hamm will direct the second episode of the season.  I can’t wait for this season.  We previously reported that the first episode of the season will partly take place in Hawaii, which will be cool to see what they do with the set pieces there. And Weiner lets us in on a very small bit of info on the new season.

Film Review: ‘Broken City’

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Broken City Movie

I was majorly impressed with Allen Hughes of the Hughes brothers ‘Broken City‘. I’ve seen a lot of political crime dramas before, but none like this.  This particular story dives into the deep dark corners of politics and the police force in New York City at the end of a big mayoral election. I’m calling it now. Brian Tucker’s debut screenplay deserves at least an Oscar nomination for next year.  This multi layered drama and its intense characters made this film shine above the rest in its genre.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

beasts-of-the-southern-wild-blu-ray

Beasts of the Southern Wild is no doubt in my top-10 list for best films of 2012.  I know most of you haven’t heard of this film, but rest assured, once you see this film – and I urge you to see this film as fast you can- you will not forget it.  Beasts of the Southern Wild is Benh Zeithlin’s feature-length directorial debut, and even though he is only 29 years old, he has a poetic vision that is on par with Stanley Kubrick and Terrence Malick.  Zeithlin’s attention to detail allows the movie to successfully portray backwater Louisiana, magical realism, and a culture’s determination and strength. It is unlike anything I have seen.  Not only is this film entertaining, smart, and creative, it is also important in that it shows a very realistic portrayal of some of the poorest people in present day America as they struggle to survive disasters both man-made and natural.  This is what every indie filmmaker should strive for.
