God bless you, Roland Emmerich.  It looks like you finally read my last review where I asked you to please stop caring about any sort of plot in movies and just focus on action.  Emmerich brings us “White House Down,” a movie about a world where Jamie Foxx plays Barack Obama…I mean, “President Sawyer,” who signs legislation to bring peace to the middle east, and then is targeted by white supremacist domestic terrorists in an effort to start a nuclear world war 3……does this sound crazy?  HELL YEAH IT DOES!!!

Film Review: ‘Dear White People’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2014

Hillary T., Here…

13914-2

At first I was leery of the title “Dear White People.” I mean, is it a satire or a serious treatise on racial relations in colleges everywhere? Well, it’s both, and it’s for everyone. It’s absolutely wonderful, and for a first time director’s debut, it packs a sincerity that is poignant and lingering. I couldn’t stop laughing, and squirming at the same time, which means that this film did its job and I commend Justin Simien on his brilliant casting of such an independent film.

Giving Mad Props To Jack White and Co.

by NapkinArt on Oct 19th, 2010

For those who haven’t been paying attention to the genius of Third Man Record’s Jack White since his band, The White Stripes, became a house-hold name, that must be a pretty big rock you are living under…

Excuse me, perhaps I should introduce myself first, before standing on my soap box for a few minutes. My name is Jonathon Kimbrell: artist, writer, culinary engineer and avid music appreciator. I’ll be your contributing writer/critic on music and such for Boomstick Comics for the duration of this flight.

Ok, getting back to the electioneering. I’ve been a fan of Jack White, his music, and essentially everything he touches for the last 10 years. I wish I could say my fandom has lasted a lot longer, but I first discovered the genius of Jack White and his music in 2000, while a freshman in college, a very impressionable time in my life, I must add. Ever since, I’ve been following his career and the innovations he and his crew at Third Man Records in Nashville, TN have been cooking up.

The White Stripes are a powerhouse of sound, especially for just two people. The Raconteurs are The White Stripes+, will a full on band and sound. Enter The Dead Weather, the new avant garde of dark rock and raw sexual emotion that is White and lead vocalist Alison Mosshart. Only the sexual stage chemistry of Jagger and Richards can rival this duo. If  I could have ever asked for the second coming of The Velvet Underground, it would be The Dead Weather. Are you still under that rock? Just go pick up any record Jack White is playing on and you’ll see the light. Might I suggest “Horehound” for starters?

In an odd an interesting age where vinyl is regaining its throne, no one would have ever suspected new frontiers could be found in the vinyl format, and its Jack White that is pioneering these frontiers. The Dead Weather’s “Sea of Cowards” vinyl is the first time I’ve ever heard of music being pressed into the actual label of the record. White’s new ‘Triple Decker Record’ is a 12″ single of “Blue Blood Blues” with an additional 7″ single embedded inside. Simply separate the casing of the 12″ record and voila, you have a second record to enjoy. (I will admit this brilliant invention is harder than hell to get your hands on, as there were only 300 copies made world-wide.) SXSW fans of Jack and Co. were also treated to ‘Texas-Sized’ vinyl this year, making available 8″ singles and 13″ full-length LPs, sighting that ‘things are bigger in Texas.’ This is entirely true, but then again, Jack likes his exclusive goodies just to fuck with us. However, his genius keeps us coming back for more, as we ponder what new invention he’ll come up with next.

Aside from his inventiveness, here is why I like Jack White: he’s saving rock and roll one vinyl record at a time. I also happen to think he is music’s hardest working man in showbiz, rightfully taking that honor from the late ‘Godfather of Soul’, James Brown, as White wears many hats. Not only does he play in like 5,000,000 bands or so, he also dons the role of producer, steering the ship of all the new talent that comes through his Third Man Records studio. Jack White is making the music industry exciting again, in a time where major labels are still pouring shitty music down our throats on a minute-by-minute basis, and where none of them are interested in seeking out and nurturing good talent anymore. Of course, everyone still has their distributor middle-man, but perhaps White is finding ways to deliver the goods straight to the consumer, whenever the hell he feels like it. What happened to the days when an artist could release 2-3 records within a calendar year? Perhaps Jack White knows what the people want, and he’s giving it to us.

I had the fortune to join White’s Third Man Records ‘Vault’ fan club service, for a monthly fee fans get access to exclusive goodies, like rare recordings, vinyl records, videos and other swell stuff that can be possibly hocked on eBay. As I await the next batch of exclusive goodies from The Vault, I’ll be enjoying the records I’ve been able to acquire from Third Man Records thus far. Look for my review of the live ‘Racontwoers’ vinyl that was released for Record Store Day 2010. Yeah, I’m a little late on that one, but hey…sometimes records don’t find you until the time is right.

Keep on keepin’ on, Jack. If music truly does need saving, I’ll bet the farm on you good sir.

I’ve never hid from you the girl-love I have deep inside me when it comes to beautiful faces, gorgeous bodies or even just their boobs. One person that comes to mind that holds all those qualities, plus makes me wish I were her, is Reese Witherspoon. She’s southern charm in motion. You just know she’s got to make killer sweet tea, right?

Film Review: ‘[Girls Trip]’!!

by Janet White on Jul 22nd, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

We’ve seen this storyline before. Four friends come together, experience a separation, reconnect and hijinks abound. In Girls Trip, Ryan (Regina Hall), Lisa (Jada Pinkett Smith), Sasha (Queen Latifah), and Dina (Tiffany Haddish) met in college, became the Flossy Posse and were thick as thieves. Then life happened and disrupted their efforts to stay close. An opportune event, New Orleans’ Essence Festival, changes all of that…

Blu-ray Review: Free Fire!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Blu-ray Review: The Fate of the Furious!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’re eight movies into this franchise, which would have you assume that these films would have lost steam, been remade, or have a completely new cast. That’s not the case at all with ‘Fate of the Furious‘ or the 8th installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, because there are no signs of this franchise slowing down, being remade, or losing any of its fun cast.

Movie Quotes

Narrator:
Home was a condo on the fifteenth floor of a filing cabinet for widows and young professionals. The walls were solid concrete. A foot of concrete is important when your next-door neighbor lets their hearing aid go and have to watch game-shows at full volume. Or when a volcanic blast of debris that used to be your furniture and personal effects blows out of your floor-to-ceiling windows and sails flaming into the night. I suppose these things happen.
