Hey guys, Jana here,

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

Reconstruction of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

There are three types of movies in this world for me; bad movies (which I may or may not enjoy because of or despite of their badness), good movies, and movies that annoy me.  Movies that annoy me are the ones I obsess over.

Movies that annoy me tend to be “close but no cigar” to a good movie. They annoy me, because I wish the film had gotten the cigar. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a movie that annoys the crap out of me.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was intended to be a soft reboot of the series. It was supposed to introduce new characters in a similar environment and allow the series to have a “fresh start.”  The film had absolutely everything it needed to accomplish this task. Instead, the movie is a jammed pack, convoluted, dragging two-hour film.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Progress on ‘Aquaman‘ is swimming along prepping for a fall of 2018 release, and with that progress, there is some casting news to let you in on. We know that Jason Momoa will, ummm, scale up? to become the King of Atlantis, and Amber Heard will take on the mantle of Mera, the object of Aquaman’s desires and that Willem Dafoe will transform into Nuidis Vulko, the scientist that plays a very important role in many of the Aquaman story-lines. We can now add to this list, Patrick Wilson who will take on the character Orm (Ocean Master), Aquaman’s half-brother and he’s not such a nice guy, using any means within his reach to try and take over the throne of Atlantis and has been causing problems since 1966.

Film Review: ‘3 Days To Kill’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

kevin-costner-is-in-killer-mode-in-3-days-to-kill

With characters named ‘The Wolf’, ‘The Albino’, ‘The Accountant’, and ‘The Guido’, you can’t expect too much quality from ‘3 Days To Kill‘, which was directed by McG (the guy who brought us the ‘Charlie’s Angels‘ movies and who at one point, wanted to cast Beyonce as Lois Lane in an abandoned remake of ‘Superman‘ several years ago). Needless to say, McG, hasn’t done anything of interest ever in his career with the exception of giving a little bit of money to television shows like ‘Supernatural‘ and ‘Chuck‘.

This new poster below is all sorts of kick-ass.  It features the beautiful Sofia Vergara as the deadly Desdemona which looks like she has a unique skill. I loved the original one, and I know we live in a perfect world when ‘Machete‘ gets two films. The cast includes: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.

Film Review: ‘Nocturnal Animals’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2016

Beka P., here…

nocturnal-animals

I was completely thrown off by Tom Ford’sNocturnal Animals‘. Aside from ‘The Lobster‘, this film is the most disturbing and disappointing one I’ve seen in quite some time. From the time the opening credits rolled, I was bothered and that feeling did not subside. I was literally relieved when the closing credits rolled and at the same time I had a feeling of, “was that it?” To say it was the most unsatisfying viewing I’ve had in quite some time is an understatement. What’s so terrible, you ask? Let’s start at the top.

Film Review: ‘Son of Saul’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

SonofSaulCannes

I’ve become quite a connoisseur of holocaust films over the years. Being Jewish has connected me in a deeper way than most people to these types of films, as I had family survive and killed during that immensely tragic time. From films like ‘The Sorrow and the Pity‘ to ‘Schindler’s List‘ to even ‘Inglorious Basterds‘ and the ten hour documentary ‘Shoah‘, I’ve seen a ton of films that have dealt with the holocaust on all levels. This particular film however, does something new, which I’ve never seen before. It’s called ‘Son of Saul‘ and is just as rough, depressing, and sad as you might come to expect from a holocaust movie.

Hey guys, Jana here,

bookstack

I love to be entertained, whether it’s watching a great movie, ballgame, series, listening to Led Zeppelin or reading a book, I always have at least two of them going at once. Reading gets a lot of time and attention from me, so it stands to reason that I would have a list of favorite books, not just favorites that I love to read, but favorite titles that should be given the big screen treatment.

Film Review: ‘Ernest and Celestine’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

ernest-et-celestine-main-review

Ernest and Celestine” is an Academy Award nominated (Best Animated Feature) film, from the creators the “Triplets of Belleville” and “The Secret of Kells”, about the unlikely friendship between a bear and mouse. I watched this film in its original French language with subtitles, but it is also available in a dubbed English format, with a voice cast including some slackers you’ve probably never heard of like Forest Whitaker, Mackenzie Foy, Lauren Bacall, William H. Macy, and Paul Giamatti. Though the French cast is not packed with name droppers (for Americans anyway), they are perfection, especially Pauline Brunner who voiced the darling little mouse Celestine, and Lambert Wilson as the grumpy bear Ernest.

Danny Boyle’s New Film “127 Hours”

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2010

Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, Sunshine, Millions) is hard at work in post on his new movie “127 Hours”. I have been hearing quite a bit about this movie.

“127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clémence Poésy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?”

I’ve heard that at a few of the film festival screenings, people have passed out due to the graphic nature of one amputation scene. Danny Boyle has continued to give us one golden movie after another. He has tackled quite a bit of different genres from re-defining the Zombie genre to a psychological sci-fi thriller, to the academy award winning picture comedy/drama Slumdog Millionaire. Now he is going into the realm of factual based events with this Ralston Guy.

I cannot wait to see this movie. The movie comes out November 5th.

Check the trailer below.
