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’.

FX’s Emmy-winning series ‘Fargo‘ is revving up for a season three and casting a new lead with the gorgeous, Obi-Wan himself, Ewan McGregor. *Thunderous applause* The series is set up as an anthology and is populated by a veritable list of who’s who in Hollywood and McGregor is just the latest in a long line of dynamite actors and actresses.

Warner Bros. is banking on the character Harley Quinn, who will be seen in the upcoming ‘Suicide Squad‘ with her own spin-off movie, because the film studio wants to push a solo film. Actually, it looks like several of DC’s female heroes and villains will be featured in the film, including ‘Batgirl‘, and ‘Birds of Prey‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

I knew there would be a day where we would have another ‘Evil Dead‘ and ‘Army of Darkness‘ project, starring Bruce ‘man-god’ Campbell, which is for sure happening. Read about that story HERE. But I also knew there would be a glorious day where America’s finest actor would get the opportunity to play the President of the United States. Fortunately for all of us, that day has come as Bruce will play Ronald Reagan in the upcoming 2nd season of ‘Fargo‘ for FX.

Season 2 of ‘Fargo‘ is gearing up to start filming soon for FX, and rest assured, I can’t wait. The first season, which was based on The Coen Bros. Oscar winning film in the 90s was excellent. The first season starred Martin Freeman, Billy Bob Thorton, Colin Hanks, and Allison Tolman.

Hulu is one of the premiere names in SVOD services and it’s no wonder why. With a recent multi-year licensing agreement with 20th Century Fox TV Distribution, the provider has also gained exclusive streaming rights to the Emmy winning FX miniseries ‘Fargo‘.

When I was told director David Ayer was going to bring one of my favorite comics, ‘Suicide Squad‘ to life, I got excited and happy that immediately turned into stomach churning nausea. Why would I have such an extreme reaction to this news? I mean, comic books have been inspiration and fodder for dozens of high dollar productions, why would this be different? I’ll tell you what bothers me about it, the casting for the villains needs to be impeccable.

When it comes to Marvel comic-to-movie VS. DC comic-to-movie transformations, Marvel has a clear leading edge with interlaced storylines and sheer numbers that have been released. It pains me to type that because I am a DC fan. HUGE fan of DC characters, the heroes and their amazing villains. To me, the villains are absolute top notch and beat out anything Marvel can throw out. The colors, the histories, the wicked laughs and plots are perfectly my brand of crazy. Among these vivid characters that leap off the pages are Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and of course, The Joker.

‘Fargo’ Renewed for Second Season on FX!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Fargo‘ received an impressive 18 Emmy nominations, so of course FX renewed the show for a second season, which FX announced today at the TCA conference in L.A. ‘Fargo‘ will be back for ten episodes with an all-new cast, characters, location, and time period, and will be “based on a true story”. This is awesome news, because I think ‘Fargo‘ replaced ‘Breaking Bad‘ for me. That’s how good the first season was.

FX Picks Up ‘Fargo’ The Series!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

FX has just greenlit its first limited series, which will be ‘Fargo‘, which is based on Joel and Ethan Coen’s award winning film from the 90s. The Coen Bros will be executive producing the project and will be written by Noah Hawley.  Hawley created ‘The Unusuals‘ and ‘My Generation‘.  We’ve written about this before HERE, and then we knew that FX had secured a deal, but we did not know that project had a greenlight for a limited series.

Hi, Bryan Here….

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.

Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 26th, 2019

“‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood’ is first-rate filmmaking and pure bliss for a movie fan.”

It’s always a special year when Quentin Tarantino releases a new feature film. His ninth movie is called ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ and is perhaps his most ambitious film to date. Not only has Tarantino grown as a filmmaker since 1992’s ‘Reservoir Dogs‘, permanently making Tarantino a household name, but his films have covered different time periods and genres too. Additionally, if you’ve seen Tarantino talk or be interviewed before, you can instantly tell he has a huge passion and love for older films and Hollywood itself. He’s a true fan and a wealth of knowledge about the movie industry and cinema. ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ translates that deep affection directly on screen too as we follow a struggling once-famous actor and his best friend stunt double around Hollywood for a few days. It’s a different breed of Tarantino, while at the same time, having all of the necessary Tarantino traits you come to expect when watching his movies. It’s wonderful to watch everything unfold for the nearly three-hour adventure that is given to us, which left me smiling and talking about it days after. ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ is first-rate filmmaking and pure bliss for a movie fan.
