Woody Harrelson is ‘Wilson’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 3.18.19 PM

Woody Harrelson is having a few big years and for good reason. The guy is just genuinely likable and a badass. His next big film is called ‘Wilson‘ and will premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. ‘Wilson‘ is directed by Craig Johnson (‘Skeleton Twins‘), written by Daniel Clowes (‘Art School Confidential‘, ‘Ghost World‘), and produced by Alexander Payne (‘Election‘, ‘Sideways‘, ‘About Schmidt‘, ‘The Descendants‘, ‘Nebraska‘). Need I say, “HOLY SHIT”, what a cast and crew already. If that weren’t enough, you can add Laura Dern, Judy Greer, and Cheryl Hines to the cast as well. Fox Searchlight now has a trailer and new poster for the film, which looks excellent.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Woody Harrelson has been all over lately, we’ve seen him in ‘The Hunger Games‘ films, ‘LBJ‘, ‘Triple 9‘, and ‘The Duel‘. One place I’d never thought he would be is in the ‘Star Wars‘ world. However he’s in talks to play Han Solo’s mentor in the spinoff featuring Alden Ehrenreich in the role of the scruffy, nerf-herder himself.

Martin McDonagh is the mastermind behind the stellar hit from 2008, ‘In Bruges‘, as both writer and director, he created a hilarious, witty film that I just adored. I’m thrilled to discover hes the same force bringing ‘Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri‘ to life, with start of production set for April.

Hi Jana here,

 

ZOMBIELAND

Woody Harrelson has always had an in-demand acting career, but it seems that he was never so popular as he is now. Everywhere you look, things are turning up Woody. Harrelson joins the cast of ‘Triple Nine‘, a heist-thriller directed by John Hillcoat. Hillcoat brought us some massive hits like ‘The Road‘ and 2012’s massive hit ‘Lawless‘.

Film Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2018

Disney is on a roll these days with their recent ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. Not only do we have the new Episodes, but we are getting spin-off movies that focus on a singular story from the past or a certain character. One character that we all have loved from the original trilogy, but don’t know a great deal about is Han Solo. Sure, we know he was a smuggler, is an anti-hero, loved the princess, and helped save the Galaxy with his wookie partner Chewbacca, as they flew from planet to planet on the iconic Millennium Falcon. Through the original trilogy, we heard small lines of dialogue that gave us the tiniest glimpse at his background and life before he met Obi-Wan and Luke. Fortunately, we now have ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ to answer all of those questions for us.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

Blu-ray Review: The Glass Castle!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE FILM


You probably have heard the name Jeannette Walls. She is a journalist that was known for her Gossip column for MSNBC, but she is now known world-wide for her amazing novel ‘The Glass Castle‘, which was a memoir about her life growing up with her dysfunctional family. Her novel stayed on the Best Seller list for 261 weeks. If you think about that’s about four years and yes, it’s that good. Of course, Hollywood made a movie about it, which was directed by the amazing Destin Daniel Cretton (Short Term 12) and starred Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts.

Film Review #2 – War For The Planet of the Apes!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 12th, 2017

Dan M., here….

War For the Planet of the Apes is the best movie I have seen this summer. It is astonishingly well done. Every aspect of this movie *at a minimum* worked. Some of the basic moments and scenes would be considered high points for lesser franchises. There is a ton to spoil in this film but I will not be doing that in this review. Hopefully in a few weeks once people have seen the movie we can discuss the moments that made this movie so damn good in greater detail.

Film Review: War For The Planet of the Apes!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 12th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I believe we all thought that Tim Burton killed the Planet of the Apes franchise back in 2001 with his horrible version of man vs. ape. Luckily in 2011, the studio breathed new life into the franchise with Rupert Wyatt’s early telling of what is to become with Planet of the Apes with astonishing visual effects, acting, and one hell of a story. That film – Rise of the Planet of the Apes showed that one ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis) was to become the first highly intelligent and humanized ape, but it came at a great cost with a virus that wiped out most of Earth’s population. In the sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes that was taken over by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), Caesar and his ape friend are battling for their lives against the humans that have survived the virus outbreak. Now we have arrived at the conclusion of this epic trilogy – War For The Planet of the Apes, with Reeves in the director’s chair again as we see an aging and grayish haired Caesar tending to his family and still battling the demons of his former human-hating friend Koba, whom was killed in the previous film.

20th Century Fox is now remaking ‘White Men Can’t Jump‘, which was the 1992 comedy hit that starred Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Rosie Perez.

Kenya Barris, who is the creator of the ABC comedy show ‘Black-ish‘ will be teaming up with Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin and Carolina Panther Ryan Kalil to remake the film with Barris as the producer and writer of the film.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

This portion of the review was written by Suzanne Loranc.

Everyone can understand that the second movie in any series can be the problematic middle child of a franchise. They tend to suffer between the spellbinding beginning and the satisfying conclusion. However, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire rises above the usual awkward bridge label with excellent performances and a script that remains faithful to the book to make it a movie that could almost stand on its own.

4K UHD Review: ‘Now You See Me 2’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

This film review portion was written by Beka Perlstein of Boomstick Comics.

Life is all about the long game. ‘Now You See Me 2‘ pulls you in from the very beginning and quickly wraps you up in a fun game of cat and mouse with none other than The Four Horsemen. This quirky group of magicians is back from the first flick with one major improvement- Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the token chick, playing Lula May. She’s funny, spunky and the perfect addition to the otherwise all male ensemble.

Hold onto your seats! Triple 9 is a non-stop action-packed film that definitely delivers. Within the first ten minutes you are sucked into a high intensity bank heist that rolls right into one of the best get away scenes I’ve seen in a long time. It’s so intense that you aren’t really sure where the rest of the movie is going to go, but have no fear, there’s plenty of nail biting left to do.

The ‘Now You See Me 2’ Trailer Is Full of Magic!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 18th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

nowucme2

 

 

Now You See Me‘ was a really clever, entertaining film, kind of our generation’s ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘, not that one, the first one with Sinatra, Deano and Sammy. It was genius, so I was excited for a sequel and now that we’ve seen the trailer. This one stars Michael Caine, Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Daniel Radcliffe and Mark Ruffalo among others. I’m anticipating the release date, which is all the way in June, but this trailer might hold me over.

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.

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.

HBO Eyes Stars For ‘True Detective’ Season 2!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 7th, 2014
Hey everyone, Jana here,
‘True Detective‘ was lauded by critics and fans alike in its first season. Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson have a loyal and already won over group of fans that followed them to the gritty series. Add into that equation fans of HBO’s unparalleled programming and production value and mystery/crime/drama fans and it’s the perfect recipe for success.  ‘True Detective‘ was lauded with Emmy nominations by the truckload. How does HBO compete with itself on such a stellar first season? With an equally star-studded and action packed second season, of course.

HBO has won a pretty big prize in locking Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood for the primary positions.

Film Review: ‘Out of The Furnace’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

out-of-the-furnace-harrelson-bale-0782013-101738

Scott Cooper’s second film ‘Out of The Furnace‘ has a lot going for it. The script and especially its amazing A-List cast might draw out a decent crowd, but a sour taste might be left in your mouth after the end credits start to roll. Cooper’s first film was ‘Crazy Heart‘ and had some similar somber tones to it as this film does, but it’s nowhere near how brutal ‘Out of the Furnace‘ truly is. But what makes this blue-collar flick ultimately suffer is the amount of filler that has nothing to do with actual premise of the movie and keep the film from moving forward at a steady pace.

With a mix of ‘The Illusionist‘ and ‘The Prestige‘, and a healthy dose of ‘Ocean’s 11‘, director Louis Leterrier gives us ‘Now You See Me‘, which is a heist movie involving four magicians. The illusions in the film are over-the-top, but incredible and despite the movie’s flaws, its super fast pace makes its problems disappear from memory. With an all-star cast and decent dialogue, this magical caper might be one of the summer’s biggest surprises.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Translating a book–especially a popular one–to the big screen is a tricky thing.  If you’re in need of confirmation on this, just look to the Harry Potter series, where the movies were just as often accused of getting it wrong as they were praised for getting it right.  Should the filmmakers be more concerned with producing a good movie or being slavishly reverent to the source material?  That’s a difficult question to answer.  For my money, the film must be able to stand on its own while not entirely disavowing the core of what made it popular in the first place.  The cast and crew must continuously walk a fine line between winning over a new audience and alienating the old one.

That having been said, let’s take a look at the most recent trailer for The Hunger Games. Read the rest of this entry »

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 30th, 2010

After this section of the list we will be at the top 100 films of the last decade.  So many great films on this list.   Like last time, you will get the title of the movie, the year it was released, and a brief memory and review of the film.  Plus, a link to purchase the movie over at AMAZON for a great price.

Enjoy #’s 119 – 101.

119_ House of 1000 Corpses – April 11, 2003

The much anticipated Rob Zombie Horror film.  This film went through so much hell to get released.  It took about two years.  But finally it did.  Rob Zombie showed me that he had what it takes to be a director and he also showed his love of horror films.  Captain Spaulding is forever a great character in cinema history now.  This film is brutal, hilarious, bloody, and all out crazy.  Go Rob!  Look out for a young Rainn Wilson.

118_ Boiler Room – February 18, 2000

What a great story about an illegal stock broking firm.  This movie made me       re-think about those pesky sales calls.  Great performances from Giovanni Ribisi and Nicky Katt.  Kick ass soundtrack too.  i love the Ben Affleck speeches in this movie to motivate these young kids to steal people’s money.  I would imagine this film hits close to home for some people.

117_ Love Actually – November 7, 2003

The ultimate romantic comedy that does not fail anywhere.  I love watching this film.  Not only is it filled with love and comedy, it is filled with drama and hurt.  The best of both worlds really.  All-star cast with cameo appearances by tons of people including Mr. Bean.  If you want a great wonderful feel good movie, then watch this.

116_ Grizzly Man – December 5, 2005

What a horrifying documentary about a man who lives with the grizzly bears illegally in Alaska for a decade.  Now don’t get me wrong, I laughed a lot in this doc, but ultimately it is a tragic tale.  You meet Timothy Treadwell who appears normal and has an unhealthy fascination with bears.  His problem is that he thinks they are like humans.  Throughout the doc you seem him descent into literal madness where he will never escape which leads to his and his girlfriend’s death.  Werner Herzog does a great job with the footage that he is given.  A must-see.  i just think Timothy’s downfall was that he did not understand nature or the chaos that nature is.  You will see it.  Remember the bee he thought was dead?

115_ Ong Bak 2 – October – 23, 2009

The follow up to the bad ass thai martial arts film Ong Bak starring Tony Jaa who is the ultimate badass.  No stunt wires or special effects either in this film.  Jaa is Bruce Lee times 1000.  Ong Bak not only stars Jaa but is also directed by him.  The fight scenes are beautiful and the direction is beautiful. I just want more Tony Jaa films.  Please. Now.

114_ The Mist – November 21, 2007

Stephen King’s amazing book gets the proper treatment from Frank Darabont.  I loved this adaptation.  This film really did creep me out.  If something like this really happened, you better believe some fanatics would come out and start some crazy shit and not help the situation at hand which is that terrifying monsters are trying to eat us.  Loved the ending.  Also the B &W version on the dvd is great as well.

113_ Sicko – June 29, 2007

Another great documentary from Michael Moore.  This man knows what he is talking about.  I do believe we need a better healthcare system in this country and what we have now is not working and has not worked.  This film is NOT about people WITHOUT healthcare, but rather about people WITH healthcare who DON’T get help because of the insurance companies.  It is heartbreaking and funny and very informative.  I think everyone should see this documentary.

112_ The Devil’s Rejects – July 22, 2005

The follow up to Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses which plays out more like Natural Born Killers than a Music Video Horror Film.  I loved this film.  So much fun and uber uber violent.  I think this film still holds the record for most curse words. I really root for the bad guys in this film, because in essence they are a family doing what they do best.  Once again Rob Zombie makes a brilliant piece of Horror cinema to last forever.  Great dialogue that will make you gut bust laugh.

111_ Azumi – May 10, 2003

A badass Japenese flick about a samurai girl who fights evil in her land.  Move starts off with her in a samurai school and the last test before “graduation is her and her classmates have to fight to the death.  Who ever survives gets to graduate.  HARDCORE!  There is a very creepy gender confused villain in this film which makes for much delight.  Also the fight between Azumi and about 1000 people is epic.  The camera work is top notch.  See Azumi.

110_ Zero Day – January 23, 2004

Oh man this film is crazy.  Based on the shootings at Columbine, this film is made to look like a handheld camera documentary of  the lives of two friends in high school who plan to kill as many people at their high school as they can.  And they DO.  It is like Blair Witch/Cloverfield but with the Columbine Shootings subject matter.  It is very frightening.  Tons of insight as to why the Columbine might have happened.  This film rocks and if you can find it, WATCH IT.

109_ Shrek – May 18, 2001

This series has made tons of money and Shrek and Donkey have become cult characters forever.  This is on the list because of its wit, humor, and story.  Very original.  I loved theis film is not only for kids but adults of all ages.  Which means it works on all levels.  I just wish the third film could have been good.

108_ Ali – December 28, 2001

This film makes the list strictly for it’s acting from Will Smith, John Voight, and Jamie Foxx.  I did not particularly like the direction at all, but the acting is unbelievable.  Some of the best.

107_ Hellboy – April 2, 2004

Oh Hellboy, one of my favorite characters from comics.  Del Toro did a fantastic job with this film as he does with all of his movies.  The world he created with Hellboy is pure magic.  He can brilliantly mix fear and comedy and make it work.  Kudos to you all.  Ron Pearlman is excellent as Hellboy.  I want more Hellboy films.

106_ The 40 Year Old Virgin – August 19, 2005

The film that brought Judd Apatow and Steve Carrell to fame.  Also the film that redefined the comedy genre with the dick jokes and vulgar bathroom humor.  Not only are the jokes in here great but it also has a wonderful story.  I still quote this film.

105_ Zombieland – October 2, 2009

Zombies and Woody Harrelson amped up to 10 makes for a kick ass fun film.  I really enjoyed this film.  Fast paced, good character development, plenty of guts and gore, and great funny dialogue and possibly the best cameo of the decade is in this film.  All hail B.M.  I hear they are making a sequel to this film.  Also this film starts out in Garland.  Looking forward to more from this director.

104_ Speed Racer – May 9, 2008

The Wachowski siblings bring this cartoon to life in a huge way.  This is the most colorful film I have ever seen.  I think most people disliked this film but I disagree.  I was highly entertained.  This film could have been terrible and been a huge failure, but it was a lot of fun and a high energy thrill ride.  Very enjoyable.

103_ Zodiac – March 2, 2007

A very creepy accurate film of the Zodiac killings which is still unsolved to this day.  Fincher did a great job making this film and all of the characters are spot on.  a quality film in the serial killer genre, possibly one of the best.  Extremely well written.

102_ Spider-Man – May 3, 2002

Sam Raimi brought this beloved comic character to life and is was spectacular.  It was everything I wanted Spider-Man to be.  Even Bruce Campbell was in it.  I can’t speak for the third film, but this fist movie was amazing.  Spot on dialogue delivery and character adaptations and casting was unreal.  This will remain one of the best super hero films ever. Go Sam Raimi.

101_ Behind the Mask – September 14, 2007

A true gem of a film that not many people have seen or heard of.  This film is filmed like a documentary in a world where Freddy Krueger and Jason Vorhees and Pinhead are real.  The immortal killer in this film is Leslie Vernon.  He comes across as a likable charming guy with a hint of something not right.  This film crew documents him and how he kills his victims and how he is able to vanish quickly from sight and keep track after his next victims.  A whole lot of fun and originality.  Highly recommended.  Loved this film.  I hope to see another film with Leslie Vernon.

That’s it for this part of the list. Stay tuned next time for the next section. Any guesses as to which ones will be on the list?
