Hi, Bryan Here….

This is HUGE.  And not good.  In my opinion, Ball is one of the most talented showrunners in tv history.  Without him on ‘True Blood’, I can very much see this not being as good as it once was.  And with Ball out, I’d bet dollars to donuts there is going to be a major revamp to crew and writing on the series.

Alan Ball Makes New Pilot for HBO!!!

Hi Bryan Here…

Oscar winning director/writer/producer/showrunner Alan Ball, known for “Six Feet Under” and “True Blood”, has shot a pilot for a new series for HBO.  If we know anything, it’s that Alan Ball knows what he is doing when it comes to writing and creating movies and tv.  Hell, he wrote the screenplay for “American Beauty”.

Film Review: ‘Oddball’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 26th, 2016

Beka P., Here…

oddball-post

Oddball, directed by Stuart McDonald, is an unexpected true tale about a chicken farmer and his misbehaving dog, Oddball, and how with a bit of determination and some help from family, anything is possible. Swampy, played by beloved Aussie actor, Shane Jacobson, is somewhat of an outcast. A widowed chicken farmer on the outskirts of town, he doesn’t much care what people think of his strange ways, or his strange dog, Oddball. The only caveat there is that Oddball seems to always be getting into trouble with the townspeople. So much so that Oddball is out of chances.

Hey guys, Jana here,

alan_ball1

If there’s one thing HBO has learned in their relationship with Alan Ball the writer/producer who developed ‘True Blood‘, it’s to bank on him. They’re following through with that sage advice by joining forces with him once again, this time for an hour-long period drama pilot, ‘Virtuoso‘.

Jana B. here,

 

The Wolf of Wall Street

 

I loved ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘. Two of my favorite things about that movie are Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill as Jordan Belfort and Donnie Azoff. DiCaprio takes on the unbelievably big characters that are usually brimming with excess and he knocks them over the Green Monster. Every. Single. Time. Jonah Hill has certainly come a long way from my first introduction to him in ‘Superbad‘. I saw him and thought, he’s the token funny, fat guy. I believe every group has to have the token, funny, fat friend. That’s my role. I’m the token, funny, fat girl in my group. I’m really happy that Jonah Hill broke out of that stereotype.

Alan Ball has a new show coming out on HBO, meaning we should all pay attention to this. The new show is called ‘Here and Now‘ and stars Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins. If you don’t remember who Alan Ball is, he wrote a great film called ‘American Beauty‘, which won a ton of awards. He then went on to create ‘Six Feet Under‘ and ‘True Blood‘ for HBO. We’ve all been waiting patiently since then for him to come back to work on a new HBO series.

HBO Renews ‘The Newsroom’ and ‘True Blood’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

HBO renews Sorkin’s ‘The Newsroom’ for a second season and ‘True Blood’ for a sixth season.  ‘The Newsroom’ update comes just one day after its second season.  Needless to say, it has tons of viewers and very positive reviews.  And the hit vampire/werewolf/werepanther/witch/monster show has been renewed for a sixth season.  This time, I don’t think Alan Ball will be involved.  It will be interesting to see how the show does with out him running the show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here we are with HBO’s vampire series ‘True Blood’ season 4.  We can all sink our fangs into this one and come out blissful.  So let’s take a count, shall we?  Vampires, werewolves, fairies, witches, demons, ghosts, were-panthers, and shape shifters have all made an appearance in ‘True Blood’ so far.  That’s eight different creatures, some of who were introduced in season 4.  Can’t wait to see what new and insane creatures and monsters are in store for us in season 5.  This bluray release is stellar, much like its previous seasons with their top of the line audio and video presentations.  If you are a fangbanger or just love blood, then you know you’re going to pick this up.  ‘True Blood’ season 4 is an excellent edition to the collection.

DVD/BLURAY Releases for 3rd Week of September

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2010

This new column will be a weekly post on new DVDS and BLURAYS that are coming out each week. You can read a small description of the release and you can click on the pictures which will send you over to AMAZON so you can purchase the titles for a great discount. Enjoy this week’s titles.

The award winning movie, “American Beauty” that put Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition) and Alan Ball (Six Feet Under/True Blood) on all of our Radars. This is going to look spectacular on bluray. I am looking forward to the commentary track by Mendes and Ball on this release. I loved this movie when it came out in the late 90’s. I cannot believe it has been that long ago. Remember this one best picture at the oscars.

Criterion is like the Neiman Marcus of DVDS. They have the best transfers, audio, and extras out of any DVD. Period. This was released a number of years ago on DVD and now we get the high-def transfer. Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant are amazing in this dark comedic thriller. I highly recommend picking this up.

From the creator of Amelie and City of Lost Children comes the black comedy “Delicatessen”. It came out in 1991 and became an instant cult classic and was favored by tons of critics and the masses. Now we get it in high-def and with some exclusive HD extras including a new retrospective documentary with the director and a behind the scenes featurette and 20 page collectible booklet. Add to that commentary with the director and this is a must buy. This is an amazing crazy little film. A must see.

The Experiment is film that has been kept under the radar for some time now. It stars Adrian Brody and Forest Whitaker. “Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker star as ordinary men who find themselves transformed by strange circumstances in The Experiment. Tempted by a large paycheck, 26 men agree to be divided into prisoners and guards and placed in a mock prison for two weeks–but within a matter of days, these seemingly sane men have turned the mock prison into a sadistic pressure cooker. The Experiment is in part a remake of a German film, Das Experiment, which was inspired by a psychology experiment conducted at Stanford University in 1971–an experiment sometimes cited as demonstrating an innate human capacity for sadism.” I am looking forward to seeing this. It sounds very interesting and I love the two main actors.

The hilarious television series “Modern Family” makes its home video release debut this Tuesday. I loved this show. It replaced “Arrested Development” for me. I laughed at every episode and found all the characters engaging and hilarious. The 1st season is packed with deleted scenes, deleted family interviews, gag reel, fizbo the clown and a wide variety of behind the scenes featurettes. Definitely worth picking up and if you have not seen the show, you wont be sorry when you get this and watch it.

Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood is a tragic mess. Now don’t get me wrong, it looks beautiful, but as a whole the film is a complete turd. Ridley was so set on making this a factual based movie and making everything authentic. But you know the story of Robin Hood is one of fantasy and wonder and magic. All of that is missing from this film and goes on for way too long and just bored me to death. I will not be watching this again unless the masterminds over at Rifftrax get their hands on it.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for next week when I look at Iron Man 2.

4K UHD Review: ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2018

THE FILM


One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally upon us with Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy/sci-fi realm in ‘Ready Player One‘, which is based on the pop-culture fandom novel from 2011 of the same name by author Ernest Cline. The novel was a best-seller and was chock-full of the 1980s and 1990s references in the form of video games, movies, TV shows, and more. in fact, every page of the book was like reading a nostalgic diary of your past childhood favorite things. ‘Ready Player One‘ takes places a few decades into the future where a simulated and very realistic virtual reality game is the main form of entertainment where people put on goggles and can be anyone or anything they want.

THE FILMS


Presented here in 4K UHD are the first 4 ‘Jurassic Park‘ films, including ‘Jurassic Park‘, ‘Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World‘, ‘Jurassic Park 3‘, and ‘Jurassic World‘, which came out only a couple of years ago. Back in 1993, Steven Spielberg gave us the world of dinosaurs in such a moving, emotional, and entertaining way, that his first film ‘Jurassic Park‘, became a milestone in filmmaking and paved the way for a ton of creative minds over the next few years. With a mix of practical effects and state-of-the-art CGI effects, Spielberg and his crew of filmmakers created dinosaurs all over again, which became a huge phenomenon.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Commuter’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Fernando Martinez)

SOMEONE PLEASE STOP TAKING LIAM NEESON’S FAMILY!!! Ok, so maybe ‘The Commuter‘ isn’t so much about having his family ‘Taken’, but they get threatened to get taken, and that’s close enough.

So “The Commuter” is here simply to prove that Liam Neeson is still an action hero, and to be fair, he is probably our best action hero.  At age 65, he’s doing stuff that Tom Cruise wishes he could have done in his 30’s.  Actually, this felt like a role that was written for Tom Cruise until someone realized that Tom Cruise is box office poison but everyone loves Liam Neeson probably because of Love Actually.

Film Review #2: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 24th, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War isn’t just the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie is the culmination, better yet coronation, of the universe to this point. This is the film that will actually be remembered and talked about years from now. Ten years in the making, eighteen films deep, and at least 30 characters so that we could get here. It’s astonishing that they pulled this off. Infinity War, when all is said and done, will likely be the crowning achievement of this cinematic universe.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Full Moon High’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 30th, 2018

THE FILM


From the vaults of the 1980s, comes a forgotten comedy/horror movie called ‘Full Moon High‘. Made in 1979, but released in 1981, you can’t help but think that the original ‘Teen Wolf‘ creators drew inspiration from this movie for their own 1985 classic. Unfortunately, ‘Full Moon High‘ never made it to cult status and has been lost on the shelves for years until right now, where we can bask in the glory of cheaply made werewolf high-school films that are meant to make us laugh rather than scare us.

Software App Review: ‘Film Budgeteers’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2018

THE PROGRAM


When preparing to make a movie, short film, or TV series, there are quite possibly a million things that you will have to decide on and plan in advance to get the ball rolling to execute your vision on screen. Actors, crew members, marketing, sets, props, makeup, hair-styling, food, lighting, cameras, and tons of other aspects are required to make a movie. Unless you’re making a movie in your own home, by yourself with your iPhone, I’m willing to bet your film – no matter how big or small it is, will require you to pony up some money for it to be made. Now, pretty much all films have a budget. A budget can be as small as $5000 or can be as huge as $250 million. You’re going to have to budget and not go over your budget in order for you film to work. So how can you work out a film budget on paper that shows where all the money is going to? Usually, you would hire someone for that, but there’s a new app in town called ‘Film Budgeteers‘, which essentially does all the work for you.

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.

4K UHD Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

First off, my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. I love the weird, oddball, and sometimes anti-hero characters so much, the dialogue, and the feel of the whole movie, that I really connected to it and enjoyed it on every level. This group of heroes are not the norm and I relish in all their conflicts, endearing moments, and witty banter. That brings us to Vol. 2 that reunites all of our favorite characters as they go on missions to save the galaxy.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

TheFortuneCookie_BD_HighRes__20142.1491192512.1280.1280

THE FILM

We all miss Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau. They had such excellent chemistry together through the years.  They starred in ten feature films together from Grump Old Men to The Odd Couple and everything in between. The duo had such comedic timing and love for each other that it just oozed off screen in and into everyone’s hearts. Their first film together was called The Fortune Cookie and cemented a life-long friendship and partnership in film that would last decades.

‘Batman: The Killing Joke’ Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 25th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

Batman-The-Killing-Joke-Subtitle-Indonesia

 

I have been waiting for a very long time to see ‘Batman: The Killing Joke‘ come to life on screen. This is one of those stories that has a larger importance, than just an entertaining read, it’s a bit of an origin story and remains a linchpin in the Batman/Joker/Commissioner Gordon/Batgirl saga. Spoilers ahead, darlings.

Film Review: ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1200

Taika Waititi is one name you will soon remember for a very long time if you don’t already know it. Waititi is writer/director here for ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘, which is already in the top 5 BEST movies of the year, but Waititi is also an actor too. He starred in and directed the recent ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘, as well as directed ‘Eagle vs Shark‘ and even worked on ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ amongst other films. He is currently directing the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ film for Marvel, and it’s easy to see why Marvel hired this guy by watching ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘. Even if the premise here is similar to other films, Waititi makes the story and characters entirely refreshing and original.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Straight Outta Compton’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 26th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

Music biopics are one of my favorite genres of film. I love seeing a musical artist or band portrayed on screen and their rise to fame, complete with how they came up with their platinum hits, warts and all. As of lately, we haven’t seen a ton of these biopics with the exception of the excellent ‘Love & Mercy‘ about Beach Boys member Brian Wilson. Most of the biopics usually focus on one person or a band and go up until they hit it big, but that’s not the case with ‘Straight Outta Compton‘, which is more of a bio-epic than a biopic. Instead of following one person, the film follows three main characters with a treasure trove of other superstar artists.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The 33 3D Box Art

Warner Bros. Pictures is gearing up their release of ‘The 33‘, based on the true-life events that  occurred in 2010, when 33 miners were buried alive and trapped for 69 days. The Blu-ray will debut on February 16, however, if you’re in a rush or simply prefer digital HD, you can get your fix earlier on February 2.

Film Review: ‘Concussion’!!

by Janet White on Dec 25th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Concussion - Omalu

 

Football, especially in Texas, is king and they are not alone in this mindset.  In Concussion, Pittsburgh, PA’s love for the game (as well as the rest of the country’s) and the NFL’s reign over it endangered Dr. Bennet Omalu’s (Will Smith) life.  Against all odds, Dr. Omalu, a forensic pathologist discovered and worked to educate the masses of the mental dangers of playing the beloved sport.  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and its related diseases, named by Dr. Omalu since he discovered the disease, was and possibly still is affecting football players from kids to professionals.  Dr. Omalu is from Nigeria and holds America in high esteem, but his reverence is about to be tested.

Film Review: ‘Trumbo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 13th, 2015

Rebecca S., Here…

trumbo

I went into ‘Trumbo’ expecting a slightly dull, somewhat stoic look at Hollywood’s past transgressions during the Communist scare at the height of the cold war. However, the movie ‘Trumbo‘ I watched, was interesting, heartwarming, infuriating, lovely and, surprisingly very funny.  I may have trouble writing this review because there are only so many ways to say “it’s so, SO good. Go see it!”… but I’ll give it a try.

Film Review: ‘Pan’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

pan-movie

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.

Film Review: ‘Lazer Team’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Rooster-Teeth-Lazer-Team-World-Premiere

It’s very rare when a movie like ‘Lazer Team‘ comes out. It’s over-the-top, ridiculous, raunchy, and very silly. However, it works on every level and I found myself having an excellent time in the theater from start to finish, laughing so hard, it hurt. Matt Hullum and Burnie Burns, the duo that is responsible for the iconic ‘Red vs. Blue‘ series wrote and directed this hilarious feature film. ‘Lazer Team‘ happened because the fans made it happen with a strong crowd funding campaign that ended up earning three times more than what they asked for, and it’s evident in the movie.

Film Review: ‘Maze Runner: Scorch Trials’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE SCORCH TRIALS

A year later, we have the sequel to the popular young adult novel series ‘The Maze Runner‘ with ‘The Scorch Trials‘. in my previous discussion about the first film, first time director Wes Ball certainly knew how to film and construct some excellent action sequences that were highly suspenseful and kept the adrenaline flowing like vicious rapids. That being said, the first film had its issues with pacing and dialogue, which is the same problem with the sequel.

Hey guys, Jana here,

galaxyquest

Was there a better spoof comedy in 1999 than ‘Galaxy Quest‘? I’m gonna go ahead and say there wasn’t and Quest was the greatest thing since ‘Spaceballs‘. As far as space spoofs go, it was killer and it helped that Tim Allen starred. In the 90’s I was addicted to ‘Home Improvement‘ and couldn’t get enough of the comedian. I actually read both of his books and watched every show in syndication so many times that I could quote them in my sleep. With my love of Allen, it was a given I had to watch ‘Galaxy Quest‘, the bonus part was, it was an epic movie on its own!

2015 Disney Film Release Dates With Trailers!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

star-wars-disney-570x307

While the world is focusing on auld lang syne and bringing 2014 to a close, Disney is pointedly looking to the future or “To infinity and beyond!” as Buzz Lightyear would say. Walt Disney Studios has given us a wide list of release dates for 2015 including the first Star Wars since the mouse has taken ownership. It’s a big lineup and will, no doubt, bring in a wega-payday for the company. In the last year, three films, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, ‘Maleficent‘ and ‘Captain America Winter Soldier‘ brought in over $700 million world-wide on their own. It stands to reason they can expect the same from 2015. Let’s kick it off with some animation!

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,

 

Untitled-5_0

 

“Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?” If you recognize that line, you will probably be excited about the idea of a remake. I’m talking about ‘The IT Crowd‘, of course. NBC has given a put pilot commitment to the reimagining of a sitcom that aired for 5 seasons. Technically, the show ran for four series of six episodes each, a fifth series was commissioned it was concluded with a one-off episode that aired last year. For those that are unfamiliar with the term “put pilot”, it is an agreement that the host company, NBC in this instance, will air the pilot episode basically ensuring that the serial will be picked up. If the network declines to air the pilot, they will owe a fairly large amount of money to the studio.

Film Review: ‘The Maze Runner’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-maze-runner-maze-image-600x337

To end the summer and start the fall season, we have yet another Young Adult film adaptation from James Dashner’s book series called ‘The Maze- Runner‘. Like the young adult movies to come out before this one such as ‘The Giver‘, ‘Divergent‘, and even ‘The Hunger Games‘, it all takes place in the a futuristic society where Earth is mostly in ruins. And there is one person who might be able to set things straight and save a bunch people and bring peace. ‘The Maze-Runner‘ is no different when it comes to these plot points.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

doc_brown_marty

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

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.

Film Review: ‘Draft Day’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 10th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

DRAFT DAY

I have not been excited about a Kevin Costner movie since before I had my first kiss, which was Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. And that came out in 1991 when I was 11, and let’s face it, I was going to see Christian Slater.  It was the last Costner movie that I saw in theaters, though I have sat through or fallen asleep during his other films like Waterworld and The Postman.  So when I was asked to go see Draft Day, a movie I knew absolutely nothing about going into the theater except that it was about either the NFL or NBA  (Do other sports have draft days?), I took my husband along for moral support/sports clarification just in case. This movie had all the makings of a perfect storm of being truly awful and I had a depraved eagerness to write this review in order to drop the hate bomb on Costner. But man, was I wrong. This movie was good. Really good.

Terrence Howard is one of the most hard-working and in-demand actors the film industry has to its credit. Right now, he has 8 projects that are in development. That doesn’t even include some of the powerhouse films he is just on the backside of like ‘Prisoners‘, and the award winning ‘Lee Daniels’ The Butler’.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Iron Man 3’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

iron-man3

With ‘Iron Man 2‘ proving to be less than stellar back in 2010, this third sequel of the Marvelhero returns with a much needed boost of attitude and character that takes us through many twists and turns and tons of new Iron Man suits. This can be considered a sequel to both 2010′s ‘Iron Man‘ and Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘. Director Shane Black tosses away much of the wham-bam action scenes and focuses on the quick witted humor and our hero’s internal struggle with crippling panic attacks. I have no doubt this will be a fan favorite of the franchise.

Film Review ’42’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 13th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

42-movie-poster

42‘, which is the answer to the ultimate question in the universe, is also that historic and legendary uniform number held by Jackie Robinson, the first African-American to play major league baseball.  Brian Helgeland’s biopic film on Robinson tells a polished and engaging version of the baseball hero that changed the nation. With phenomenal performances from Chadwick Boseman as Robinson himself, both fans of baseball and Robinson, along with a younger crowd who has never heard of the baseball player will eat this film up. The box office will draw some decent money, even if the director tries to head us over the head with what we are supposed to be feeling.

‘Treme’ Returns for 3rd Season Sept. 23!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

First, the people came back. Then, the crime. Now, more than two years after the near death of a great city, the money is starting to arrive, which would sound like a solution if this were some place other than New Orleans, and this was some other era but America at the millennium. For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. However, little of what they can bring to bear yields a quick result, and nothing about New Orleans – its government, its police department and courtrooms, its school system – works as it should. Nothing is easy.  In the end, their only weapons are community. And culture.

Bryan Reviews ‘Crooked Arrows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 18th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Crooked Arrows’ might be the first feature length narrative film on the fastest-growing sport, Lacrosse.  ‘Crooked Arrows’ was inspirational and an underdog story at heart.  Now I know we have seen our fair share of underdog films, such as; ‘Rocky’, ‘Underdogs’, and ‘Remember the Titans’, but  where ‘Crooked Arrows’ differs is that it shows a sport not only from its physical aspect, but also its spiritual, artistic, and historic background.  While there is an overabundance of cheesy heart-felt moments in this film, ‘Crooked Arrows’ has enough character and inspiration to rise above recent sports films.

Seems like most of the really important music to come out of the 20th Century was very topical in nature, songs that reflected what was happening in life and society at that time.

Take one of Bob Dylan’s early songs, “The Times They Are A-Changing”, Woody Guthrie’s “Dust Bowl Ballads” and The Weavers’ rendition of “What Side Are You On,” a song originally written for the United Mine Workers Union in Kentucky in the early 1930s, shifted slightly to bring attention to the growing fears of Communism and McCarthyism in the 1950s. All of these songs were powerful then and still very much are today, as well as being important documents of the American fabric of history, how the music has shaped our people as a country, and how change in our society has been brought through by the platform of music. The exact same can be said of John Lennon and his Plastic Ono Band’s “Power To The People” song, written and released in 1971. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi Bryan Here….

Beauty and the Beast is absolutely one of the best animated films of all time.  When it first came out. it was a modern marvel and is now a pure classic.  One of the best tellings of the story.  This bluray was released a few months ago and now Disney has released it again with the 3D bluray disc along with all the other discs.  The 3D actually elevates the original content through the new 3D effects.  The same AMAZING audio mix and all the same great extras made it to this release.  A must own for any fan of the film and for 3D tv owners.
