Film Review: ‘X-MEN: APOCALYPSE’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 9th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

cdn.indiewire.psdops

And we are back with yet another ‘X-MEN‘ movie, marking this the 9th film in the franchise, that is if you count the ‘Wolverine’ movies and what not. If you’re just counting purely ‘X-MEN‘ films, than this is number six with it being number 4 from director Bryan Singer, who started this whole comic book movie crazy back sixteen years ago with the first ‘X-Men‘ film. From there, we have seen the Marvel and DC Universe take off into a multi-billion dollar industry. It’s quite mind boggling, and this new film ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ seems to take everything we’ve seen since Matthew Vaughn’s ‘First Class’ and sculpt it into this one film.

“Cancel the apocalypse.” No, wait…wrong movie. Fox has just released the full trailer for the next installment in the ‘X-Men‘ franchise, which has allowed Bryan Singer in the director’s chair again. This marks the fourth X-Men movie for the director as a director. The film will be released on May 27, 2016 and looks to be bigger, meaner, and apocalyptic.

‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Rogue Cut Details!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Just when I think there is not an original hook left in the entertainment world, I read something that really drives home the point of why I am not a marketing genius. Case in point – ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past Rogue Cut‘. In a million years, I would never have possessed the cleverness and ingenuity required to come up with this. I would, however, still have come up with my rock-solid theory connecting Led Zeppelin to the Broadway smash ‘Les Miserables‘.

 Warner Bros. are trying yet again to revive the Looney Tune franchise. They’ve had moderate success over the past decade with a couple of feature films, and a new series, but they have not come close to making a big blockbuster hit like they used to. But that might all change, considering the talent they have behind this revamp, which they hope to turn a franchise out of it.

‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ – AN EDITORIAL!!

This is not a review; this is a plea.

As of this posting, the Rotten Tomatoes score for X-Men: Days of Future Past is holding strong at 92%. And while it would seem that a score that high indicates the filmmakers got nearly everything right—in as much as anyone ever can—, I’d like to offer up a few suggestions for the next film, tentatively titled X-Men: Apocalypse.

Film Review: ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

x_men_days_of_future_past_banner-wide

The big blockbuster movies for the summer of 2014 have officially kicked off and ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past‘ might be the best one yet. For the past year, I’ve been looking forward to seeing this and original X-Men director Bryan Singer returning to this storyline. If you remember, back in 2000, Singer was the first director to take on a big budget comic book movie with the first ‘X-Men‘ film, and the studios were waiting to see if it was going to do enough business. Made on what seems to be a modest budget of only $75 million, the first X-Men film made $300 million domestically, and that’s before 3D and all of the IMAX screens. Well, the rest is history, as we have had tons of comic book films come out since then. But it feels great to be back with the one that started it all.

I am a Marvel girl. I am. But after the last ensemble X-Men movie (Last Stand), I was devastated at what had become of my beloved mutant team. Then, First Class came out, which gave me a lot of hope. Then they announced Bryan Singer would return to direct the next installment. Dare I get my hopes up more? Then they shared the “Days of Future Past” storyline. I was instantly hooked. The cast started rolling in, and I got even more hopeful and well, I was really happy after the first preview. It looked good, even great.

Well, it’s finally here. After a couple of years of teasing the story line and casting, and the badass end credit sequence from the last ‘Wolverine‘ film, we now have a trailer for Bryan Singer’sX-Men: Days of Future Past‘.  Thanks to 20th Century Fox for releasing it just a few minutes ago.

Bryan Reviews ‘Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous’ DVD!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous’ is the second part of a trilogy written by Joss “man-god” Whedon.  This is a motion comic film which is illustrated by the talented John Cassaday and is out just in time I feel to promote Whedon’s epic Avenger film.  This is not the best work I’ve seen, but it’s not the worst either.  I just feel like this was rushed to release rather than give it the proper time to be the badass DVD it deserves to be.

I still haven’t had a chance to see this yet, but I have been hearing great things.  It really seems like they did this X-Men film right.  If only they got director Matthew Vaughn to direct ‘X3’.  But so far, people are saying this is right at the top with the best superhero films out there and one of the most satisfying films of the year.  Can’t wait to see it.  Enjoy FedMex’s review below.

Film Review #2: ‘Deadpool 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

Deadpool 2 checks all the boxes of  the very entertaining first film to the point you wonder if the script was some sort of mad lib experiment. Don’t get me wrong, letting Ryan Reynolds go full Ryan Reynolds in an R Rated superhero movie is a 90 minute blast just like it was the first time around but that’s kind of the problem… Deadpool 2 brought nothing new to the table. The Deadpool movie formula works to an extent because Reynolds is so damn fun and the first time you hear the jokes and references they land almost every time. Every criticism of the film can be 100% true but also not matter one bit with this franchise because Ryan Reynolds‘ charm is turned up so damn high that you gloss over the abundant flaws because there was a joke that you actually choked on a drink from.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

Oh, we got fun…and the game! Coaxing and soaring over the tails of its predecessor, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle will rock your world. In 1995, Jumanji, centered on a board game, turned a home and a city inside out with adventure stampeding over the bounds of the silver screen. Picking up from where the first film left off, the board game is found on a beach. Jumanji ensnares new victims, so let the ride begin. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Tragedy Girls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2017

“Tragedy Girls fits best on a weeknight in October when you’ve already watched the good horror movies leading up to Halloween.”

Tragedy Girls is a movie that you probably don’t know about, haven’t seen ads for, and will have a tough time finding but if it comes on Netflix or Amazon Prime and you need to kill 90 minutes? You could do much worse. The film is a solid attempt at satire of high school, social media, and horror movies. It also contains some legitimately dark humor that really shocked me at first because I knew nothing about the film going in. I need to set the plot a bit in order to discuss the movie further.

Film Review: ‘Rebel in the Rye’!!

by Janet White on Oct 14th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

The Catcher in the Rye took the U.S. by storm nearly from its initial printing. The author, J.D. Salinger, transformed from obscurity to magnified limelight causing him to retract from the world. The more the public wanted to know him or be his infamous character, Holden Caulfield, the more withdrawn Salinger became which increased the mystery. In the past 66 years, the novel has been printed, re-printed, translated and massively distributed throughout the world. Schools have both required and banned the reading for reasons of profanity and its message. Rebel in the Rye details Salinger’s (Nicholas Hoult) life and progression as a writer. From his early years as a willful, smart mouth to an obsessed literary giant. Read the rest of this entry »

4K UHD Review: ‘Kick-Ass’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2017

THE FILM


Back in 2008, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. created a new comic book that was kick-ass, that they in fact named it ‘Kick-Ass‘. It was basically Spider-Man if Spider-Man had no superpowers and was had a hardcore R rating. The amount of creative energy, violence, comedy, and character development that went into the comic was magical as it was entertaining and wonderful. Millar just had a way with words and story plot that made this comic book called ‘Kick-Ass‘ solid gold. It was to nobody’s surprise that only two years later, we got a feature film directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and produced by Brad Pitt, that ignited a new breed of R rated superhero films.

Wonder Woman 4K UHD and Blu-ray Announced!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Perhaps the biggest movie of the summer and the one film to get DC and Warner Bros. back on track with their superhero films – WONDER WOMAN, is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD. Warner is sure milking this for all its worth, since they are also releasing a 3D version of the film, even though 3D is dead in the water. The 4K UHD is the way to go for sure here if you have the right equipment. You can own the movie digitally as soon as August 29th, and you’ll be able to purchase the Blu-ray, 4K, 3D, and DVD on September 19th. There are tons of bonus features as well, which I can’t wait to watch. Official information below.

We already knew that the comic book publisher Dynamite Entertainment had already worked a deal to bring the story of John Wick into the comic book world, but now we have a release date, writers, artists, and even some info on the story. John Wick is one of the best action films of recent memory. It spawned a recent sequel with both films making a ton of money and much critical praise. Not only does John Wick have spectacular stunt work and one hell of a story that follows a former assassin out to kill the people he once worked for, but this mysterious world John Wick is in has been living in is one that we’ve gotten glimpses of in the past two films, leaving us wanting more. This comic book will explore that world in more detail, which means more information on assassins, the hotels, and people who handle their business. I can’t wait.

Warner Bros. is at a loss for original ideas, so they are wanting to get back to 1999 when ‘The Matrix‘ was releasing, because in fact, they want to remake ‘The Matrix‘. This is a terrible idea. There are tons of original stories and ideas out there. Get after it Warner Bros. Sources close to the project have said that a remake of ‘The Matrix‘ is in the works, which isn’t necessarily new news, since we reported on this a couple of years ago. It wasn’t so much of a remake back then, but maybe an expanse on the storyline or even a sequel.

Dan M., here….

thumbnail_25047

Even when the dust settles and recency bias fades, I can’t imagine LOGAN not being considered one of the greatest superhero films of all time. For me, LOGAN is in the same class as Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, Spider-Man 1-2, Iron Man, Reeve’s Superman, Burton’s Batman, etc. I believe all of those comic films work as films and stories first, comic fun second. There are plenty of “fun” comic movies I thoroughly enjoy and love but I wouldn’t classify them as well-crafted films. LOGAN is a great story and character arc first and comic fun second. It just works on every level.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

For decades now, we have been clamoring for a ‘Wolverine‘ film done right. From his first incarnation in Hulk #181 to his own miniseries in comic book form in the 1980’s by Frank Miller, to the amazing Saturday Morning Cartoon, and his first appearance in a feature film in 2000 with ‘X-Men‘, which had the song and dance man Hugh Jackman play the iconic character. He was so good at playing Logan/Wolverine, that fans immediately took a liking to him as that character and he went on to play the ‘Snikt-y Snikt’ character in almost a dozen more films. Besides the ‘X-Men‘ films, Wolverine got his own set of standalone films, which may or may not have been liked by a lot of people for various reasons. Either the story was too silly or the character Wolverine was to PG for fans.

Joel H., here…

monster-trucks-movie-cgi-creature

Remember what it was like to dream? I’m not referring to our current dreams of better jobs, or more money, or a new car, but dreaming without restriction? As a kid, I dreamed several times of experiencing that bicycle flight in front of the moon with E.T. at the helm. I dreamed of discovering pirate gold and sneaking a kiss from my older brother’s girl like Mikey. I sat in spaceships and fighter jets made of cardboard boxes. I gave life and personality to a slew of GI Joe’s, even little green army men with no functional limbs. I dreamed. There was no lack of depth to those dreams. No impending Trump administration. No knowledge that the guns used for pretend are replicates of actual war machines taking lives every single day. My simple imagination was rampant without knowing otherwise, but I grew up.

Yes, we are all a bit nervous when it comes to video game movies. There is good reason for that too, since most of them are fairly terrible, even though some make a ton of money at the box office. The ‘Tomb Raider‘ films with Angelina Jolie made a ton of money as did the many sequels of ‘Resident Evil‘. Let’s not forget the recent ‘Warcraft‘ movie or ‘The Angry Birds‘ movie either – all of which made a big box office splash, despite the quality of story and performances.

We’ve known for a long time that a third sequel to the X-Men solo movies about Wolverine was coming. We’d even gotten some pretty solid leads on the fact that the Old Man Logan storyline is going to be the base for that film. Now, we have another tidbit of info that can give us an idea of how the film is coming together.

‘Green Room’ Blu-ray Announced and Detailed!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

91LSukBM25L._SL1500_

Green Room‘ was my favorite film from 2015’s ‘Fantastic Fest‘. You don’t get much better than Patrick Stewart as a bad neo-nazi, trying to kill a punk rock band. Not only that, you have the ‘Blue Ruin‘ guys Jeremy Saulnier and Macon Blair on top of this film as well. It’s in theaters now, and I highly recommend you go and see it. Lionsgate has just announced the Blu-ray too, which will release on July 12th with some cool extras. Below is the information.

Scream Factory is releasing ‘Manhunter‘ in Collector’s Edition form on May 24th on Blu-ray with a ton of new extras. Do you remember ‘Manhunter’ from 1986? It had a hell of a cast and featured the character Hannibal Lektor for the first time on screen. Yes, even before he rose to superstardom in ‘Silence of the Lambs‘. This film also had a killer soundtrack as well. Below is the press release and all the info you will need on the release. Can’t wait for May 24th.

Lucas-Till

The ‘MacGyver‘ series reboot is getting off the ground and they’ve locked in the actor who will play the titular character in ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’s Lucas Till. CBS is taking the 1985 series and updating the project by 30 years. We can expect the same ingenious response to solving problems with a few more current gadgets, but I bet nothing will take the place of a trusty Swiss Army knife.

Ernest Cline’s book ‘Ready Player One‘ is one of the hottest projects in Hollywood right now. It promises to be one of the best Sci-fi films in a long time. It might be because that Steven Spielberg is directing it or it might be that Ben Mendelsohn and Olivia Cooke have signed on to star in the film too.

I’m talking about not one, but two Stephen King adaptations Boone is taking on, with one of them being ‘The Stand‘. Crawl before you run, young padawan.

Film Review: ‘Ride Along 2’!!

by Janet White on Jan 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Ride Along 2 - Bros

 

Following on the tails of the Ride Along, Ride Along 2 comes rollin’ in.  Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) is finally a cop, straight out of the academy, and still seeking James Payton’s (Ice Cube) respect.  Especially, since Ben is about to marry James’ sister, Angela.  The buddy comedy continues, but lacks luster.  Kevin Hart has his usual diarrhea mouth, but in this film, someone added 20 lbs. of ex-lax to his condition.  Normally 8 out of 10 times, this endless train of ramblings can make your side split.  However, in Ride Along 2 his batting average drops.

Film Review: ‘Steve Jobs’!

Janet W., Here…

steve-jobs-movie-2015-holding

Steve Jobs opens on a black and white video of a young boy listening with profound focus to a computer technician’s progressive response to the world’s potential journey towards a computer-dependent society.  Young Steve Jobs clearly had a desire for technological innovation in his blood even then.  Through his wide-eyed look, the turning of his mental wheels was easily discerned.  Even then, you could tell that Jobs had his mind set on a path to making the right computers a part of everyone’s everyday life.  Fast forward to the launch of the first Mac where an all-grown up Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is in a state of controlled panic (or was it frustration?).

Pan opens with the star-filled, vastness, and seemingly infinite space a proper setting for our imaginations.  This is where the world began.  Fitting this would be the start of the story of one of literature’s most courageous young boy (sometimes a grown woman, remember Mary Martin played him, too), Peter Pan.  Pan is where Peter’s story began, long before he met Wendy, John, and Michael.  Peter was a baby left on the front steps of Lambeth’s Home for Boys in pre-World War I London.

Shakespeare never goes out of style and ‘Macbeth‘ is proof of that. Of course, if you serve your Shakespeare with a side of Michael Fassbender (‘X-Men: First Class‘) as the titular Scottish duke, it’s a match made in heaven and has to be, at least part of, the reason the screening received a 10-minute standing ovation after it’s screening at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.

Christopher Yost is a big name in the superhero world, he masterminded the script for ‘Thor:The Dark World‘ and the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘, besides that, he shaped the world for some of the biggest names in comic-book animation like ‘X-Men: Evolution‘, ‘Fantastic Four: World’s Greatest Heroes‘, ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ and ‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Warriors‘, so it makes perfect sense that Sony Pictures and Escape Artists have brought in the master of the effervescent to take a whack at the rewrite of a script for the reboot of ‘Masters of the Universe‘.

San Diego Comic-Con is all I’ve been talking about the last week, and with good reason! The epic trailers, the cast surprises, the tidbits of info that have been, previously, safely guarded. This week gives us a fantastic peek into the next year or two of film and gets us stoked for those release dates. One of the most exciting bits of information came from Wolverine himself, Hugh Jackman. He gave us three words that sent fans everywhere into a frenzied sort of glee as to what ‘Wolverine 3‘ could entail, myself included, those words were “Old. Man. Logan.” Boom!

Comic-Con is THE entertainment spot of the universe and if you’re one of the lucky ones in attendance, you are guaranteed to see the latest and greatest the movie world has to offer. For years, we’ve waited for this event to see the newest trailers for the most anticipated films during their respective panel  presentations. This year was no different, and fans were treated to, among others, ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘, ‘Suicide Squad‘, ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ and the hottest trailer from the con, ‘Deadpool‘. I have been scanning the net ever since those panels ended looking for the studios mainstream release of the trailers to bring to you, and they’re curiously absent.

Picture this:  You are dying from a fatal malady.  Are you ready to leave the earth?  Have you planned the last things you would do?  Have you said goodbye to those you love?  You realize you will never see them again, right?  These surely were at least some of the thoughts flowing through the mind of Damian (Sir Ben Kingsley).

maxresdefault

What is love in the mind of an addict?  What would you do to prove your love under a heroin haze?  Heaven Knows What takes the viewer on a twisted walk through the dark world of addiction on the streets of New York City.  The audience follows Harley (Arielle Holmes), a young woman whose addiction to heroin is almost as powerful as her addiction to her boyfriend, Ilya (Caleb Landry Jones).  Or is it the other way around?  Trying to make sense of a drug-ridden mind’s motivation or intention is a lost cause.  Perhaps this fact led to the film’s title.  Truly, who could understand why an addict would do anything.

Okay, let me get this straight. Out of all the remakes Hollywood wants to do, why are we tackling ‘Big Trouble in Little China‘? I really hope this is a mere rumor, but The Wrap is reporting it, and it seems some industry professionals are confirming this. But yes, 20th Century Fox wants to remake the iconic 80s film that starred Kurt Russell and was directed by John Carpenter.

Good Kill opens from a drone’s eye view over Afghanistan.  This reality gives the best manifestation of “Death from Above.”  Seven thousand miles away a pilot guides this miniature death bird.  Thomas Egan (Ethan Hawke) wants nothing more than to pilot a F16 again.  Having originally signed up for a one-year tour of duty with the UAVs, Egan is best in class on his 3rd tour.  Physically back from the war, Egan’s life has been diminished in many ways.  He cannot relate to his wife Molly (January Jones) or the domestic life in Las Vegas.  Egan roams between work and home as though he is on autopilot.  Suddenly the “Christian in Action” (aka CIA) hijacks his team for their covert off the books operations.  The job was hard enough with the long distance assassination of unsuspecting enemies.  Now, the call as to whether the person(s) in their sights are the enemy is taken from them.  How long can they continue?

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

To basically start out the summer of 2015 with a big bang, comes the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel’s 2012’s ‘Avengers‘ film, which is titled ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘. It’s been a long time coming too. Ever since 2008, when we saw Robert Downey Jr. put on the Iron Man suit for the first time, we all knew Marvel Entertainment had a huge franchise on their hands, as they teased a big film called ‘The Avengers‘, which put a lot of our favorite superheroes together to fight evil. After several solo movies with the likes of Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man, we finally got an ‘Avengers‘ movie in 2012, which made over $1 billion for Marvel and Disney, and was met with much praise and critical success. It was because of this, that Marvel has announced tons of superhero films through the year 2019 that will play into their overall story arc they have been building since 2008. We’ve all been anxiously awaiting this sequel for quite some time now, with tons of posters and trailers that have more than elevated our calm levels with excitement. Now the time is finally here for another hefty dose of ‘Avengers‘ with each superhero returning along with Joss Whedon directing.

Disney is right in the middle of their latest trend in film. Taking their own smash animated stories and flipping them around, re-working them into live-action films providing double the bank off a single story. If you’re talking box office success, they’re mega-hits, if you’re looking at critically, they’ve missed the end zone more than they’ve scored. Next up for the family studio is ‘Beauty and the Beast‘.

If you’re like me you’ve been on pins and needles awaiting casting information from one of the latest films covering the canon of the Marvel universe, ‘Deadpool‘. Wise-cracking Wade Wilson aka Deadpool is a fan favorite for his ass-kicking capability and his witty master of the English language. Marvel originally introduced Wilson in ‘X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘ in 2009 played perfectly by Ryan Reynolds. In a somewhat strange turn of events, Reynolds confirmed that the current ‘Deadpool’ will have no connection to the character he originated in the Wolverine movie, but will be playing him again, in the new incarnation. This time around Wade Wilson, an assassin who undergoes a procedure to cure his cancer that ends up leaving him twisted and scarred but carrying superpowers. ‘Deadpool‘ is slated to begin filming in March and slated for 2016 release.

Halloween is in the air, which brings to mind all of the ghosties, goblins and furry beasties. Werewolves have been neutered in mainstream media lately. All you have to do is check out a ‘Twilight’ flick to see the new lows the monsters have come to. That is what they used to be – monsters – they’ve been romanticized the way vampires always have been and it’s changed the way I perceive them and I hate that.

In the category of we-all-knew-it-would-happen-eventually Marvel is paving the way for an epic battle between Captain America and Iron Man with ‘Captain America: Civil War‘.

Arrow

 

Where Marvel-based comic book films have the leading edge over DC-based films, with character introduction and cross-branding, especially  when you take into the post-film stinger that we’ve all learned to wait for, but DC does have a strong point over Marvel with TV serials. I know, Marvel is getting into the small-screen game, too, but it’s no match for DC’s proven titles that have been drawing in crowds from the beginning. Where Marvel didn’t get into the series racket until 1974 with ‘Super Spidey Stories‘ that aired during small segments of ‘The Electric Company‘, DC began in the 1950’s and has kept producing through the decades.

If you haven’t watched ‘Hemlock Grove‘, yet, you’re missing out…or you just don’t have Netflix, either way, you’re missing out!  This series grips you from the first scene and it’s not let up in the two seasons it’s been exclusively on Netflix. In an unsurprising turn, the VOD company has renewed the original series for a 10-episode third season that’s heading out way in 2015.

The twice Emmy nominated thriller has some pretty decent star-power filling out its ranks. Famke Janssen, Bill Skarsgard and Dougray Scott are all featured. Janssen, best known from her days as Jean Grey in the original ‘X-Men‘ franchise, but has come into her own, shall we say, inner-bitch. Her characters are always underhanded, evil or they just want to eat children as in the case of ‘Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters‘ Oh! Don’t forget her absolute lack of concern for her daughter in ‘Taken‘. I adore Liam Neeson, but that movie-wife wanted to carry the testicles of every man she hooked up with in her perfect designer bag.

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 »

Sony Plans To Make Female-Driven Superhero Movie!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 5th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It would seem the collective consensus thinks the film-watching world is ready for a female driven superhero movie. I’m not so sure about the idea. Sure, it’s a hot time for leading ladies, but we can’t forget the horrors of the past that quickly. Of course I’m talking about the two names most synonymous with crappy female superhero movie attempts – Halle Berry’sCatwoman‘ and ‘Elektra‘ starring Jennifer Garner. The films were poorly written and the leads were unable to connect the acting with the characters. Maybe it’s the Marvel blood in Berry’s excellent portrayal of Sue Storm in the ‘X-Men’ series that rejected the DC infusion. Regardless of the reasons, there were no attempts to create more (thank God).

The Grand Seduction with Taylor Kitsch sounds yummy, but this film is not that type of party.  In the quaint town of Tickle Head, Newfoundland, the word of the day is “welfare”.  The small harbor is struggling to stay afloat while generation after generation of fisherman had lived and worked in the small town.  Sadly, since the fishing has dried up, the whole town is apparently on welfare.  Their spirit is parched for any sense of self-worth.  Mostly the older generation refused to leave, so when a petrochemical company is looking for a location for their new waste processing plant, the town bands together to get the contract.

Hi, Jana here,

I’ve taken a brief hiatus, but I’m back with some big news! We all know that James Cameron likes to make movies that have a universal appeal. That’s basically a nice way of saying he makes money-makers. If something makes Cameron money, he goes back to that well until it’s bone-dry. If he could have come up with a logical way to bring Jack and Rose back together for a ‘Titanic‘ sequel, he’d have done it. History got in the way of that one, though.

Fox has picked up ‘Superior‘, which is the limited series comic book written by Mark Millar (Wanted, X-Men: First Class, and Kick-Ass) and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu, who has basically drawn something for every comic you’ve ever heard of. This adaptation will be produced by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass).

Hello, Jana here,

 

game-of-thrones

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, framers and writers of the award winning series ‘Game of Thrones‘ have set their sites on a new project. Since converting George R.R. Martin’s novel into one of the most popular and award winning series, they have had little time for anything else. The demands of writing and executive producing GoT have left little time for other projects. With the fourth season premiering last Sunday, the pair have set their sites on another novel they are planning to convert to another media. This time, they are looking at a feature film, and the book they will be working from is ‘Dirty White Boys‘ from Stephen Hunter. Hunter also wrote ‘Point of Impact‘, the book that was turned into 2007’s ‘Shooter‘.

Hello, Jana here,

Karate_kid_ver2

If you’re the star of a movie that makes $343,000,000 worldwide with a budget of only $40,000,000, you would be safe in betting there is a sequel in your future. If you’re Jaden Smith and you’re one half of the doomed project ‘After Earth‘ and a studio is still willing to bank heavily on you, you thank your lucky stars and say “yes”.  If you can get millions of people to look past the fact that the film is called ‘The Karate Kid‘ and features NO Karate, only Kung-Fu, then audiences deserve way less credit than I give them.  Of course I’m talking about the box office hit and re-make, ‘The Karate Kid‘. The director, Harald Zwart, will not be responsible for this venture as it appears he is going to be tied up with another sequel, ‘The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes‘. Instead, Breck Eisner is taking the reigns. Eisner most recently directed ‘The Crazies‘ that starred Timothy Olyphant and Joe Anderson.

Hello, Jana here,

Ryan Reynolds is the latest to join Helen Mirren in The Weinstein Company’s ‘Woman In Gold‘ or ‘The Golden Lady‘, not sure which title they are going to go with. Daniel Bruhl is in negotiations, at this point. Mirren will play real-life heroine Maria Altmann,  a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took this case despite knowing little about art and Bruhl, will play his adversary.  Looks like George Clooney’sThe Monument’s Men‘ missed a few paintings.

Hi, Jana here,

 

celeb-sibling---John-Belushi

 

Normally when I hear John Belushi’s name, I smile as I remember Jake Blues from ‘The Blues Brothers‘ ordering four fried chickens with a Coke, or his turn as John Blutarsky in ‘Animal House‘ as he incites a food fight. One thing I didn’t expect to hear in association with his name is that he is the subject of an upcoming biopic.
