Hey guys, Jana here,

bill_paxton_daniel_radcliffe_split

Most everyone is familiar with the game ‘Grand Theft Auto‘. It encourages the player to immerse themselves into a fantasy, criminal underworld where jacking cars is a necessity and shooting rival gangsters, cops, or prostitutes is fair game. When you have a game that envelops that kind of violence, it naturally draws opposition. That opposing voice comes from parents being concerned about the content their children are absorbing, it comes from politicians pandering to the voters while touting negative values as a direct result of exposure to GTA. Each of those voices has one thing in common, their desire to ban the game.

‘Top Gear’ Season One BBC!!! (A DVD Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

The hit British show ‘Top Gear’ came to American television last year and since then has become a HUGE hit in the states.  And now it has a second season.  I’m not a huge car or vehicle watching fan, but I must say, after watching this DVD, I can’t wait to see the second season.  It has some really cool cars doing some insane experiments and tests with  a few hosts and celebrity guests.  It is a lot of fun to watch and informative.  I learned so much by watching this.  Definitely recommended.

‘Good Omens’ Adaptation Update!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 4th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here, If you’re a Neil Gaiman fan, you’ve been watching the progress of the ‘Good Omens‘ adaptation, from Amazon and BBC2,with unbridled excitement as he’s been posting updates on his Twitter  feed . For those of you unaware, ‘Good Omens‘, which is technically titled ‘Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch‘, and it’s co-written by Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. These are not two lightweight authors that had to team up to get a book published, but rather, two literary giants that chose to bless us with their combined greatness.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…..

BBC has announced the arrival of the 13th Doctor for the famed Doctor Who television series.

Whittaker is in Broadchurch and was the main woman in the excellent Attack the Block movie from a few years ago.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

If there ever was a guitar player besides Jimi Hendrix that should get his own documentary, it should be Eric Clapton. This guy not only produced and created some of the best mix of blues and rock songs, but he did enough cocaine, heroine, and alcohol that would have killed everyone in Bangkok overnight. And those people know how to party with the lady-boys. The documentary is called ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars‘ and will be directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, which sounds like a fake name.

Who will be the Next ‘Doctor’?

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

doctor-who-peter-capaldi

Peter Capaldi, who is the current, brilliant ‘Doctor Who’ on the ever popular series for BBC has announced he is leaving the role. Capaldi made the announcement on a radio show that his last appearance as the good Doctor will be the 2017 Christmas special. Capaldi said, “One of the greatest privileges of being ‘Doctor Who‘ is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.” Capaldi has been the Doctor since 2013, and now BBC will have the find the new Doctor.

Hey guys, Jana here,

neilgaiman1

When Neil Gaiman wants to tell you a story, you stop and listen. Having said that, listen up!

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world’s only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth’s mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

You or I couldn’t come up with something this wonderful, but Neil Gaiman and Sir Terry Pratchett could, and they did. ‘Good Omens‘ is what it’s better known as and it’s gloriously funny in the way only these brilliant writers could be. I’m not sure what emotion I like more, the absolute elation I felt as I read the book, or the giddy joy in finding out that this book has made the long trek to being realized as a series on Amazon Prime!!!

Oh yes, you read that right, and it’s only taken 27 years. What could possibly be better you ask? Neil Gaiman will PERSONALLY be handling the adaptation, writing each script and serving as the showrunner. Amazon Studios and BBC will co-produce what is to be 6 hour-long episodes that will air in 2018. The great thing, for those of us with an Amazon Prime subscription, is that the miniseries will premiere on Amazon Prime video first before it goes to BBC.

Hey guys, Jana here,

slide_1_image

New music releases from now defunct bands or artists that have passed on isn’t really a new thing. We’ve seen enough posthumous releases that nothing should really shock us anymore, right? Every now and them a producer comes up with a mind-blowing vision to have current artists cover titles from an artist’s catalog to give it a face lift while still keeping a little something of the original artist. Covers are a hard tightrope to walk, you know? Either there’s no way in hell you can live up to the original hype or the new version sounds so good you make everyone feel guilty for liking it more than the former.

This new trailer looks incredible with and excellent music score and some of the best photography I’ve ever seen. I can’t wait to watch this and then watch in in 4K. Enjoy this trailer.

Film Review: ‘Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie’!!

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Absolutely Fabulous - P & E

 

At long last, the quirky and off the wall TV show comes to the big screen. Personally, I never knew about Absolutely Fabulous the TV show, but the pre-awareness of this show was quite evident in the audience.

mvsyagnxsseia2te2kkl

In the large series run of ‘Doctor Who‘, the actor that embodies the companion is almost, if not, more important than the actor we see on our screens that we call “The Doctor” for a few seasons. Go into any chat room dedicated to BBC’s ‘Doctor Who‘ and you’ll find at least one discussion thread that debates the best companion. To get into that discussion, it would depend on if we’re talking about “Classic Who” or “New Who”, I sound like Dr. Seuss about now but there are layers to a good debate about companions.

Hillary Thomas’ Top 5 Films and Best TV Shows of 2015!!

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say? James Wallace knows that I like (“Sixteen Candles”, “Aliens”, “Big Trouble In Little China”, “True Grit”, and “Conan” just to name a few), but I did see a “Few Good Movies.”

And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Tomorrowland’!

THE FILM

There’s one hell of a cast and crew at work here for Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland‘, which is loosely based on the famous theme park at Disney resorts. Directed by Brad Bird (‘The Incredibles‘, ‘Ratatouille), produced by Damon Lindelof (‘Lost‘ and ‘Star Trek‘), and starring George ClooneyHugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, ‘Tomorrowland‘ is a throwback to those old innovative Disney films full of adventure. I felt like a kid again through its two hour run time as I was watching each suspenseful and fun moment on the IMAX screen. That being said, ‘Tomorrowland‘ does have a few problems, but fortunately the good outweighs the bad this time around.

Film Review: ‘Mr. Holmes’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

I’m a huge fan of anything Sherlock Holmes. I’ve read the books, watched the TV series, and own the films. Heck, I even own some of the Sherlock Holmes stories on vinyl. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan. We’ve seen a ton of incarnations of the famous British detective over the years. Recently though, Holmes has become very popular due to the films that starred Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and of course the hit BBC series ‘Sherlock‘ that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson respectively. The amount of fandom for these projects have even spawned new shows and other films in the past year or so as well. It just seems that we all can’t get enough of Sherlock and those famous suspenseful mysteries.

BBC is producing a Harry Potter story unlike we’ve ever seen before. The plan is to have a two hour movie that takes place after the main characters we’ve loved so much have left Hogwarts. Remember at the end of ‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2‘ when we saw our heroes later in life all taking their kids to the train station to begin their school careers?

Hey guys, Jana here,

Premiere Of FX's "American Horror Story: Coven"

 

In the wake of wickedly successful series like ‘Game of Thrones‘ that prove period pieces are bankable projects, BBC has set the cast for their newest series epic, ‘The Last Kingdom‘. Bernard Cornwell is the author of at least 8 novels that comprise ‘The Saxon Stories‘, the first in the series being ‘The Last Kingdom‘. The series is a continuing historical novel about 9th and 10th century Britain. We meet Uhtred Ragnarson, born a Saxon then kidnapped by raiding Danes who raise him from the age of 10, teaching him how to be a warrior. When his Danish father is killed, Uhtred joins King Alfred of Wessex. The series takes history and slightly embellishes events, details and people, so that what is presented is not a straight true historical story, but a marriage of historical fact and fictional characters.

Any project that combines Tom Hardy, Steven Knight and Ridley Scott is going to be wildly successful and any network should count themselves lucky to have this series in their entertainment stable. FX is the lucky recipient of the newest period drama series from the trio. ‘Taboo‘ will be set in 1813, a 100 year difference from the setting for ‘Peaky Blinders‘. The pair of series have more in common than being allegiant to their setting, BBC will produce both, Tom Hardy is cast in both and Steven Knight created the pair.

I’m an addict. When I see a new TV series that I fall in love with, I marathon every episode until I reach the end, or a cliffhanger. Both of those conditions were incredibly true for my newest addiction – ‘Peaky Blinders‘. ‘Peaky Blinders‘ falls into one of my favorite topics when it comes to what I’m watching and it’s all about mafia. The show was produced by BBC and aired the first season beginning in September of last year. Then Netflix entered the equation by acquiring exclusive US distribution rights from the Weinstein Company and Endemol. It became available for streaming on September 30, 2014. Look it up, add it to your list and enjoy. It’s absolutely brilliant!

BBC’sSherlock‘ is one of the best shows currently airing. One of the reasons is the witty banter between characters, another reason is who plays one of those characters, Benedict Cumberbatch. One of the bad things with being a fan of ‘Sherlock‘ is that our viewing season is only 3-4 episodes long, and we have to wait a bloody long time just to get those! We put up with it because the option of not having those few episodes is ultimately, far worse than the waiting.

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

You thought the world of ‘Harry Potter‘ was over, didn’t you? Well of course it isn’t. Those books and movies are too popular and make tons of money for them to call it quits. Hell, there is even a theme park now dedicated to the world of ‘Harry Potter‘. Not too mention all of the spin-off books from the series. And that’s where our story comes into play. Warner Bros. and author J.K. Rowling are putting a brand new epic film series together based on the ‘Harry Potter‘ world.

After the critical and financial success of J.J. Abrams first installment of the Star Trek reboot, we have been caught in a cycle of anticipation and apprehension leading up to Star Trek Into Darkness. Could Abrams possibly pull off a movie as fantastic or would we be left thinking he was spent after the first? Would he continue to remain true to the geekfest of science talk that places Trek above Wars? Would we get tired of the lens flares? Yes, Yes, and no.

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.

Film Review: ‘Red Dawn’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I admit, I was a bit apprehensive heading into watching this remake of the 1984 action film that starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Harry Dean Stanton, and Jennifer Grey.  The 80’s film was a big hit and is still good today. John Milius ,the director of the original film, made an imprint on the minds of the youth back then with a ‘what if’ scenario and a heck of a fun film.  This remake, while it is certainly very cheesy and awkwardly bad in tiny moments, the overall picture is a fine and worth-while remake despite its many faults.

Hi Bryan Here….

Criterion knocks it out of the park yet again with the release of Roman Polanski’s 1966 absurdly funny ‘Cul-De-Sac’.  Before Polanski’s larger hits such as ‘Chinatown’ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby’, he made more of the experimental type film.  This is where ‘Cul-De-Sac’ comes in.  Throughout the film, you will see the film go from a seductive and sadistic thriller and slowly change into a twisted dark comedy.  Truly a great little film from a fantastic director.  And of course anything with Donald Pleasence is gold right?

Anything ‘Doctor Who’, count me in.  Ever since BBC decided to revamp the series, it has created a mass fan base and has become, for the second time, a huge cult classic.  I was very excited to watch the first seven episodes of Season Six of ‘Doctor Who’.  Such an imaginative, creative, and fun as all hell television series.  Having ‘Doctor Who’ on blu-ray in Hi-Def is like having chocolate cake covered in Lucky Charms every day for two years.  It’s that amazing.  Highest possible recommendation on this release from Warner.

So now that the Union has stopped protesting, since Peter Jackson threatened to move the Hobbit Film to Eastern Europe to shoot rather than keeping it in New Zealand, production is a go.  For now.

Below are who is cast so far in the Hobbit.  You might recognize some of them.

Martin Freeman will be Bilbo Baggins.  You might remember him from the UK Office tv series, love Actually, or Hot Fuzz.

Richard Armitage will be Thoren Oakenshield.  You might remember him from the tv shows of MI5 or the BBC Robin Hood Show.

Aidan Turner will be Kili.  You might recognize him from the tv shows of Being Human and The Clinic.

Rob Kazinski will be Fili.  You might know him from the BBC soap opera Eastenders.

Doctor Who Season 6 To Take Place in America

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2010

BBC’s amazing Doctor Who show will be filming in America for the first time ever.



Upcoming season’s first two episodes to be set in the U.S.

The BBC announced today that season six of Doctor Who, which delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA earlier this year, will open with a spectacular two-parter set in the U.S. and penned by ‘Who supremo’ Steven Moffat.

In the special two-parter co-produced with BBC AMERICA, key scenes will be filmed in Utah for a story set in the late ‘60s in which the Doctor, Amy and Rory find themselves on a secret summons that takes them on an adventure from the desert in Utah – right to the Oval Office itself.

Production on episodes one and two of the new season starts in Cardiff this month and Matt Smith, Karen Gillan and Arthur Darvill will then travel to America in mid November to shoot pivotal scenes. They will also be joined by Alex Kingston who reprises her role as River Song.

Showrunner and lead writer, Steven Moffat, said: “The Doctor has visited every weird and wonderful planet you can imagine, so he was bound get round to America eventually! And of course every Doctor Who fan will be jumping up and down and saying he’s been in America before. But not for real, not on location – and not with a story like this one! Oh, you wait!”

Piers Wenger, Head of Drama BBC Wales and Executive Producer, added: “Steven’s scripts generally inspire us to go that extra mile – this time we’re going that extra four thousand. Thanks to our friends at BBC AMERICA and to the continuing ambition of our lead writer and production team, the first two episodes of Matt Smith’s second season as the Doctor are going global and look set to become Doctor Who’s most action-packed and ambitious season opener yet.”

The new season follows on from the Doctor Who Christmas special guest starring Katherine Jenkins and Michael Gambon which is due to premiere during the holiday season. Season six will start airing on BBC AMERICA in spring 2011 and has been split into two blocks, with the second block airing in autumn 2011. By splitting the series Moffat plans to give viewers one of the most exciting Doctor Who cliffhangers and plot twists ever, leaving them waiting, on the edge of their seats, until the autumn to find out what happens.

2010 has been a breakthrough year for the Doctor Who franchise across all platforms since BBC AMERICA became the official home of the series. The series reached the number one spot on the “Top TV Seasons” chart on iTunes and now Doctor Who: The Complete Fifth Season hits stores on Blu-ray and DVD on November 9.

Doctor Who was co-commissioned by Ben Stephenson, Controller, BBC Drama Commissioning for BBC One and Jay Hunt, Controller of BBC One and will be produced by Marcus Wilson (Life on Mars) and Sanne Wohlenberg (Margaret). Steven Moffat is Lead Writer and Executive Producer (Sherlock Holmes) with Piers Wenger, Head of Drama, BBC Wales and Beth Willis (Ashes to Ashes), also Executive Producing.

Filming is taking place in Cardiff until March 2011.

For up-to-the-minute information on BBC AMERICA, forthcoming U.S. premieres, art work and news from the channel, log on to www.press.bbcamerica.com.

BBC AMERICA brings audiences a new generation of award-winning television featuring news with a uniquely global perspective, provocative dramas, razor-sharp comedies, life-changing makeovers and a whole new world of nonfiction.
