Sep/2019

Hi Bryan Here….


Just hearing that makes me giddy, but also at the same time, nervous.  This film could go either way really.  Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin are all set to star in an action comedy called ‘Stand Up Guys’.  It was originally called ‘Old Timers’.  Good title change.  The movie will be directed by Fisher Stevens.  Yes.  That Fisher Stevens.

‘Dumbo’ (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2019

“This is the worst film of the year or at least most disappointing.”

In 1941, Disney wasn’t doing too well financially. It was the success of a short 64 minute animated movie about an elephant who could fly that would launch Disney back into the successful realm of cinema. Since then, this film called ‘Dumbo‘ has brightened our days throughout the years, made us sing along to its original and amazing songs, and fall in love over and over with each viewing with the titular character ‘Dumbo‘. It was a simple story about a newborn elephant with large ears. All of the other animals and humans at the circus made fun of Dumbo, which caused his mother to protect him, thus forcing her to leave Dumbo and be locked up because she became “dangerous”. Turns out, Dumbo could fly with the help of his mouse friend and became the star of the circus, eventually living a life of luxury and reuniting with his mother. It’s a beautiful story for sure with a couple of thought-out, well designed characters.

4K UHD Review: ‘Argo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Ben Affleck’sArgo’ is a brilliantly told film.  Affleck has come a long way since ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Mallrats‘.  In my opinion, Affleck has gotten better with each directorial effort with ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘The Town’, and now ‘Argo’, which I think is his best yet.  Not only is ‘Argo’ a great film, it has a smart script, good acting, clever humor in a serious and tragic situation, and impeccable period detail that rivals AMC’s ‘Mad Men’.

Film Review: ‘Million Dollar Arm’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2014

Hillary T., Here….

Million Dollar Arm Film

This was another film I was unsure about. Of course I adore Jon Hamm, and his work on Mad Men is beyond incredible. And Lake Bell is a definite keeper after seeing her film “In A World” and her recurring role on ‘Children’s Hospital. But this movie could have been a hit or miss for me. Disney has made a great family movie with ‘Million Dollar Arm‘ that I wasn’t expecting to get sucked into and obviously invested in. You can tell it was passionately and lovingly made and disney quite possibly has a home-run on their hands.

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

stand up guys

Have you ever wondered what happens to old mobsters that don’t become “The Don?”  If you have, then watch ‘Stand Up Guys‘ to find out.  Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin play three old wise guys who are reunited for one last night of glory.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

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.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

oscar_statues-4_3_r560

Earlier this morning, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the Oscar nominations, which MacFarlane came across as pretty funny.  I’m excited for him to host the Oscars this year.  And, his film ‘Ted‘ actually got nominated. How cool is that?  Below is the full list of Oscar nominations.  Let us know what you think.  We will be posting a separate article soon on Oscar snubs, because believe me, there are many.  And don’t forget, we will be doing our annual LIVE OSCAR COMMENTARY, which will mark the 6th time we have done it.  It promises tons of laughs.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.
