Jenny Mollen is a fantastic writer capturing America’s heart, (especially her husband’s Jason Biggs) and attention with her irreverent stories, ‘I Like You Just The Way I Am‘, and her latest book, ‘Live Fast Die Hot‘. The latter of the two is what’s being discussed today as it’s been purchased by Warner Bros. for adaptation to the big screen with Anne Hathaway attached to star.

Hey guys, Jana here,

In a move that will surely have people claiming that Hollywood is trying to ruin their childhood, and why can’t they just leave it alone, along with my favorite – are there no original ideas anymore? Comes the announcement that Warner Bros. is revamping ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘ with ‘Ocean’s Ocho‘. Of course there’s a twist – the cast consists of women. If you’re claiming the George Clooney led ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘ from 2001 doesn’t deserve a reboot, just remember that film was a reboot of the ‘Ocean’s 11’ ensemble original from 1960. Frank Sinatra was Danny Ocean and was surrounded by his rat pack buddies. So go ahead, take a few minutes and get the whining out of your system, I can wait.

Film Review: ‘Be My Cat: A Film for Anne’!!

by Janet White on Nov 29th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

be-my-cat-adrian

 

Direct from the twisted cerebral cortex of director, writer, and star Adrian Tofei, is Be My Cat: A Film for Anne. A tale so demented yet potentially realistic about obsession as seen through the eyes of a psychopath. Tofei’s goal (as the lead character is himself) is to woo Anne Hathaway to be the star of his film. How do you ask? By filming a “documentary” about the film including the casting process. Unwittingly three women, Sonia Teodoriu, Florentina Hariton, and Alexandra Stroe, will participate in his lunacy and suffer the consequences. Read the rest of this entry »

4K UHD Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


The threats of terrorism, war, chaos, and financial ruin are all too real these days.  ’The Dark Knight Rises’ dives into these issues on a massive scale, which makes any film in the Marvel universe look like mere “child’s play” (no reference to a knife-wielding murderous doll).  Compared with the other Batman movies, everything is bigger in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and there is so much more at stake.  Not one second of this film is wasted, the writing and direction is straight to the point, cohesive, and comes across as totally fulfilling in its 164 minute run-time.

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…..

We’ve been hearing for a while that there will be a full female film called ‘Ocean’s 8‘, which will coincide with the ‘Ocean’s 11‘ movies.

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘. Each film will come with HDR as well, meaning a richer and deeper looking image for each movie. Each film will feature extras, the standard Blu-ray Disc, and Digital Copies of each movie. The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

Film Review: ‘Colossal’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 30th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

anne-hathaway-colossal-2

Filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo has certainly etched his name in stone in the genre arena of cinema. With films like ‘Timecrimes‘, ‘Extraterrestrial‘, and some shorts in ‘V/H/S Viral‘ and ‘ABC’s of Death‘, the Spanish filmmaker has made a name for himself for executing original ideas with heart and meaning behind whatever sci-fi or horror backdrop he uses. Not many people have done as great a job as he has on a consistent basis, while providing excellent characters and monsters all in the same film. Whenever there is a film with Nacho Vigalondo’s name attached to it, you need to run to the theater, grab your favorite candy and simply enjoy what’s about to be shown, because you won’t be forgetting it anytime soon.

Daniel Radcliffe Goes Off-Broadway in ‘Privacy’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 12th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

Everyone’s favorite wizarding boy genius has developed a love for performing, sometimes on film and sometimes he prefers to hit the boards in a stage show. Daniel Radcliffe has chosen the latter for his latest project, ‘Privacy‘, to show at the Public Theater, an Off Broadway company that has recently hosted several other big names in Hollywood, Lupita Nyong’o, Claire Danes and Anne Hathaway. Not to mention it’s where the crazy-awesome ‘Hamilton‘ held its debut. On a side note, if you’ve not checked out ‘Hamilton‘, at least get the soundtrack, it is the very definition of epic.

Chris Rock Steps Up To Host 88th Academy Awards!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 21st, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

The 77th Annual Academy Awards - Photo Room

Have the Oscars lost a little of their glittery oomph that make it a night of royalty for Hollywood’s best and brightest? Maybe. One year it will be utterly entertaining, original and exciting, the next it feels forced, stale, boring and becomes the night that NEVER ends early enough. I’m sure there is a formula for success and the host is key. Hoping to have figured out that recipe, producers David Hill and Reginald Hudlin have asked Chris Rock back to host the 88th Academy Awards.

Janet’s Film Review of ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 5th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

interstellar_movie-wide

Periodically covering the land, homes, vehicles, indoor counters, and tables inside locked up homes are dust storms, more massive than those in Dune and The Mummy.  The viewer physically feels the force of the dust wall as the sound rocks their seats and chests.  The people cannot see or breathe.  The air has become 80% nitrogen and rising, slightly north of our current healthy air at 78% nitrogen.  Strange?  Yes.  A loud boom shakes the viewer, a drone flies barely above a truck, far below avoiding radar.  Odd?  Yes.  But signs of the end of the planet Earth?  The general public doesn’t know it, but I guess it is a lot like that frog sitting in a pot of water being brought slowly to a boil.  The frog will sit there and slowly cook itself.  Well, not on Cooper’s watch.

Film Review: ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

interstellar-11

It’s obvious with ‘Interstellar‘ that Stanley Kubrick’s2001: A Space Odyssey‘ is Christopher Nolan’s favorite film, which is no secret if you’ve seen interviews with the ‘Dark Knight‘ director. Armed with a core plot that all life on Earth will one day soon need to find a new planet to live on to survive, ‘Interstellar‘ dares to define a new meaning to the term science-fiction. This visually stunning movie is a gift to watch on the big screen, particularly in IMAX, and tries so hard to deliver on both the science fiction aspects of space as well as our complex human emotions. With a film that has so much going for it in it’s near three-hour run time, and so many big set pieces and theories, there are things that are bound to stick the landing, and other things that are destined to fall flat.

Film Review: ‘Rio 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here…

maxresdefault

Some animated films stay with you, like Beauty and the Beast, Toy Story, Lion King, How to Train Your Dragon, and Shrek. There are some that you really enjoy and recommend to friends, for example The Lego Movie, Despicable Me, Wreck-it-Ralph, and Iron Giant. And then, there are those that you see that you think will only be good for people with kids because they have catchy songs and flashy colors, but not much else. Enter Rio 2, which falls solidly into this category.

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-dark-knight-trilogy-600x600

Christopher Nolan’s reimagining of the Batman franchise beginning with 2005’s Batman Begins enjoyed phenomenal critical and box-office success. Now on September 24, Nolan’s three Batman films Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises – will be released by Warner Bros. Home Entertainment as The Dark Knight Trilogy: Ultimate Collector’s Edition. The six-disc set will feature all three films with their existing extra content, two new featurettes and exclusive new collectible memorabilia. This must-own collection for fans of DC Comics’ Caped Crusader is available in premium packaging and will sell for around $100.00. I’m willing to bet it’s cheaper than that though at certain retail stores. ***ARTWORK IS NOT FINAL***

Hi, Bryan Here…..

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoyed the Oscars last night.  I thought McFarlane was great and funny and thought his bits were solid.  All of the musical numbers with the exception of the two 007 SONGS and the song from ‘Ted‘ was quite awful and not fun to watch. Although ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild‘ didn’t win, there was some well-deserved victories. We also had out 6th annual live commentary last night, and it was a great success. I want to thank all of you for participating. We look forward to next year.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘The Dark Knight Rises’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

91t42AGU92L._AA1500_

Christopher Nolan’s third and final installment of his Batman franchise ranks as the best film in the series.  That’s difficult for me to say, as the first two films were so amazing.  Even with Heath Ledger’s iconic and eternal role as the Joker in the previous film, ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ far surpasses anything my imagination could have hoped for in film.  Movies do not get better than ’The Dark Knight Rises’.

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.

The Oscar Nominations Are In!!!

Hi, Bryan Here…..

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.

So Christopher Nolan has finally completed his Batman Trilogy, and yes, you’ve heard correctly, it is quite likely one of the best trilogies ever made. It’s up to Star Wars levels of good, and let me tell you why.Christopher Nolan gave us three films, an origin story, a suspenseful thriller, and an EPIC conclusion.  It’s very difficult to write this without going into spoilers, but here’s what I can safely say without giving anything away.
