Bad Boys For Life – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 15th, 2020

“Bad Boys for Life is a blast.”

“Shit just got real.” Bad Boys for Life is the third installment in this movie franchise that has Will Smith and Martin Lawrence partnering up once again, telling jokes, driving fast vehicles, and killing the bad guys. The first film was released 25 years ago with the second film debuting 17 years back, both of them made by Michael Bay. It’s a new decade and era, and even though Will Smith hasn’t aged a day since the Clinton administration, Michael Bay is nowhere to be found behind the scenes here. In fact, two relatively unknown Belgian filmmakers, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have taken the reigns and made a thrilling, funny, and somewhat heartfelt Bad Boys film, one that has consequences and brings more development to these two hilarious characters. It’s no wonder Arbi and Fallah are tackling Beverly Hills Cop 4 with Eddie Murphy next. But with Bad Boys for Life, you can expect the usual action set pieces, but with some added heart and soul to the mix, which is a very welcome addition and breathes new life into this film series.

Is ‘Bad Boys 3’ Heading Into Production?!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

badboys3-front

 

I can remember something specific about most movies I see. I remember being in high school when the first ‘Bad Boys‘ film came out. The biggest thing that sticks out in my mind though, is how freaking HOT Will Smith looked when he was running down the road and his shirt flew open and showed off his chest and abs, which looked marvelous! This is what stays in my mind when I hear the movie name. My kids are even aware that I have a favorite scene in the movie and which scene it is, and even why, much to their chagrin.

‘Good Boys’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 14th, 2019

“‘Good Boys’ is so f#*kin’ funny!”

Three young friends find themselves banning together in the R-rated misadventure of a lifetime in ‘Good Boys‘. When you have Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jonah Hill, and the producers/writers of ‘The Office‘ work on a movie together, you know you’re bound for big laughs, and that’s exactly the case with this movie. ‘Superbad‘ could be a close relative to ‘Good Boys‘, but replace the three high school friends trying to get laid with three elementary school kids who want to hit up a make-out party and finally kiss a girl. The underlying themes of friendship, growing up and moving on are all on display here, where the charm and innocent vulgarity mix perfectly with each other. ‘Good Boys‘ is so fuckin’ funny!

Hello, Jana here,

 

game-of-thrones

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, framers and writers of the award winning series ‘Game of Thrones‘ have set their sites on a new project. Since converting George R.R. Martin’s novel into one of the most popular and award winning series, they have had little time for anything else. The demands of writing and executive producing GoT have left little time for other projects. With the fourth season premiering last Sunday, the pair have set their sites on another novel they are planning to convert to another media. This time, they are looking at a feature film, and the book they will be working from is ‘Dirty White Boys‘ from Stephen Hunter. Hunter also wrote ‘Point of Impact‘, the book that was turned into 2007’s ‘Shooter‘.

Film Review: ‘Bad Words’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Bad-Words-rotator

 Jason Bateman is mostly known for his role as Michael Bluth on the hit comedy series ‘Arrested Development‘ and a big variety of other comedy roles ranging from movies like ‘Horrible Bosses‘ to ‘Teen Wolf 2‘. He is quite the comedic actor with perfect timing and is always great to see on the big screen. Bateman has said that he does these acting roles so that one day he can get behind the camera and direct, as this is his ultimate goal.

Hey there, little rock n’ roll devils, Napkin Art here…

Alright, so I realize I’m a few days behind on talking about the Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds show from March 14th, but hell, I’m still reeling from how awesome the experience was. Needed a few extra days to process it all.

As anticipated, Australia’s dark and lovely darlings, Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, hit up SMU’s McFarlin Auditorium in support of their 15th album release, Push The Sky Away, with guns, fists and instruments blazing, like it was a real gunfight at the OK Coral. No eardrum or blackened soul was spared during the two hour set. Read the rest of this entry »

Hollywood is Remaking ‘The Raid: Redemption’!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

00602-m2ts_snapshot_00-49-27_2012-08-15_08-45-01_original

One of the best action films of all time is getting remade. That’s right, Gareth Evans‘ ‘The Raid: Redemption‘ from 2011 is getting remade from XYZ Films, who surprisingly made the original film. Before we yell “Hell-Fire and Damn” on everything, let’s take a look at what we know. Gareth Evans himself is backing and producing this remake with Joe Carnahan (The Grey) directing  Frank Grillo (The Purge 2) in the lead role. I’m all for this remake now. Carnahan also made ‘Smokin’ Aces‘, the remake of ‘The A-Team‘, and ‘Narc‘, which is to say the least is an impressive resume.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

lethal_weapon_3

Well this is finally happening after a few years of trying to get off the ground. There has been a lot of talk for a few years now on doing another ‘Lethal Weapon‘ movie or a television show. It looks like Mel Gibson and Danny Glover are indeed too old for this shit.

Film Review: ‘Ride Along 2’!!

by Janet White on Jan 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Ride Along 2 - Bros

 

Following on the tails of the Ride Along, Ride Along 2 comes rollin’ in.  Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) is finally a cop, straight out of the academy, and still seeking James Payton’s (Ice Cube) respect.  Especially, since Ben is about to marry James’ sister, Angela.  The buddy comedy continues, but lacks luster.  Kevin Hart has his usual diarrhea mouth, but in this film, someone added 20 lbs. of ex-lax to his condition.  Normally 8 out of 10 times, this endless train of ramblings can make your side split.  However, in Ride Along 2 his batting average drops.

The night saw a Diva’s Battle Royal, stipulations for the WWE World Heavy Weight Championship match announced, and much much more! Wanna know what happened on this installment of the flagship show?

Hey guys, Jana here,

benghazi_victims_for_site

There are directors that you want telling the heart-wrenchingly true stories based on fact. Spielberg was unflinchingly loyal to history when he made ‘Schindler’s List‘ and ‘Saving Private Ryan‘. Mel Gibson brought the history of William Wallace to life as he led the Scots in revolt against England in ‘Braveheart‘. Ridley Scott dove into the horrific tale of ‘Blackhawk Down‘ and pulled no punches with the details. ‘Act of Valor‘, ‘Zero Dark Thirty‘ and ‘Lone Survivor’ are all cut from the same cloth as the previously mentioned films. The memory and honor of the dead lives on through these fact-based projects. One name you won’t see at the top of my wish list to direct a piece like these is Michael Bay.

Hey guys, Jana here,

chips02a

If the topic came up of two particular California Highway Patrol motorcycle officers, there has to be one name that comes to mind, right? ‘CHiPs‘ is indeed what we’re talking about in this article. When you look at all the sitcoms from earlier decades and the films that were made from them, cheese was the main ingredient. Be it cheddar, provolone or gouda, they were cheesy. Thankfully the filmmakers behind this remake is purposely driving the project in a very different direction.

Hello, Jana here,

Teenage-Mutant-Ninja-Turtles

 

Not to enrage fans of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ any more than necessary, but we’ve got some new casting info for the new twist on the heroes in a half-shell. The characters may have a different look than what we’re used to, but some of them will at least sound familiar. Johnny Knoxville has been added to voice Leonardo, and Tony Shalhoub is giving Splinter a voice.

Will Smith in Talks To Be in ‘Brilliance’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 21st, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Brilliance

 The silver screen adaptation of the Marcus Sakey novel ‘Brilliance‘ is courting Will Smith to star. This film was already on a ‘to watch’ list when Julius Onah (‘The Girl Is In Trouble‘), the Nigerian-born up and comer, was on tap to direct, but if Smith signs on to act, it will widen the number of people who will be viewing.

Director Seth Gordon Lands ‘Uncharted’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 4th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

uncharted_drakes_fortune_1335

Director Seth Gordon has been hired to directed the epic video franchise, ‘Uncharted‘ for a movie adaptation. ‘Uncharted‘ is one of Sony Playstation flagship games and has a few different sequel games you can play. Gordon directed ‘Horrible Bosses‘ and ‘Identity Thief‘. But before all of that, he made one of the best documentaries in the last decade, which was ‘King of Kong‘. That documentary was about achieving the highest score in Donkey Kong. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you do.

Bryan’s Top 15 Movie List of 2013!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

2013-best

And here we are, at the very end of 2013. What a year for movies. This was an amazing year for film. There were so many great independent films, documentaries, and movies that were just highly entertaining, that I’ve watched them more than five times already. As usual, as long as I’ve been doing this, my Top Movie list of the year is very different from most everyone else that has made a list. I don’t know why – well I do know, because I’m twisted and crazy. But how I base my list is a variety of factors, not ones that the Oscars base their opinions on, but rather a more humble and fun variety of factors. For example, did this movie make me stand up and slow clap, or did it make me slap the person next to me and yell ‘THAT WAS AWESOME’! It’s those kind of things. So without further delay, I present to you my TOP 15 list for 2013. Let me know if you disagree or agree, love or hate, or just want to say hi. Enjoy.

Film Review: ‘2 Guns’!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 2nd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

2-Guns-trailer

Surprisingly, I had a lot of fun with this action-crime thriller from Baltasar Kromakur, who previously worked on ‘ContrabandMark Wahlberg. I didn’t expect much from this seemingly stale film, but once the end credit sequence started rolling, I only could hope for a sequel and for Denzel Washington and Wahlberg to say ‘Yes’ to more films together, as their on-screen chemistry is the best I’ve seen in a long while. In what could be an off-shoot version of ‘Bad Boys‘, ‘2 Guns‘ packs a lot of explosions, gunfire, and laughs to garner a second viewing. The trailers do not do this film justice, and I’m hoping for a sizable dent in the box office this weekend with this entertaining “shoot-em-up”.

Film Review: ‘The Heat’!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Jun 27th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the_heat_bullock_mccarthy

Director Paul Feig is on a roll these days. From his time spent on the hit show ‘Freaks and Geeks‘ and ‘Undeclared‘, to his big box office smash comedy ‘Bridesmaids‘, the comedic director has not missed a step with this laugh-out-loud action-comedy, ‘The Heat‘. Sandra Bullock’s anal-retentive and proper FBI character mixes very well with Melissa McCarthy’s rough and rowdy street cop character perfectly and packs enough laughs for two whole movies. With the quick-witted and vulgar dialogue, and the chemistry between these two outlandish characters, I found myself laughing from start to finish so much, that I had tears in my eyes. Much like ‘Bridesmaids‘, I expect this McCarthy/Feig team to score big at the box office again this weekend.

Film Review: ‘Pain & Gain’ !!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

pain-and-gain-poster-final

Michael Bay made a film for $25 million over the past year. This is a budget that he hasn’t had since  his first film ‘Bad Boys‘ in 1995. Between then and now, he has epic $100 million dollar budgets and is known for his horrible filmmaking and amazing explosions and car chases. The $25 million movie in question is called ‘Pain & Gain‘ and is a true story as it tells us on screen, which is very difficult to believe while watching what happens during its two hour run time.

Film Review: ‘A Good Day to Die Hard’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Feb 13th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

a-good-day-to-die-hard-official-trailer-3-movie

We’re back for another installment of the action packed ‘Die Hard‘ series, the fifth chapter in the series that has spanned twenty-five years. We’ve followed John McClane to the top of a skyscraper, 50,000 feet in the air on a jumbo jet, a cat and mouse chase around a metropolitan area, and even cyber terrorism. Prior to the screening, I even thought “Haven’t we already said all we need to say with this John McClane character?” Needless to say, ten minutes into the film, I found myself grinning ear to ear and holding on to both armrests ready for a highly entertaining thrill ride. ‘A Good Day to Die Hard‘ might lack in story structure, but completely makes it all up with its intense action sequences and two solid performances by Bruce Willis and Jai Courtney.

Hi Bryan Here….

You know what’s awful?  Writing two stories back to back about Michael Bay.  But I guess, he is unstoppable right now.  In addition to the 4th ‘Transformers’ film, Michael Bay will be directing ‘Pain and Gain’.  Yeah you read that right.  What a shitty title.  The film will star Marky Mark of the Funky Bunch and the People’s Champ, Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

Hi Bryan Here….

Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight) , Michael Bay (Bad Boys 2) , Alfonso Cuaron(Children of Men), Rupert Wyatt (Rise of the Planet of the Apes) and David Yates (Harry Potter films) are all in talks with Warner Bros. to make a new movie adaptation of ‘The Twilight Zone’.  The 1983 ‘Twilight Zone’ film was an anthology film that consisted of four segments all by different directors.  The original directors were Steven Spielberg, John Landis, Joe Dante, and George Miller.
