Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Jason-Bourne-2

Hey now. Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in the new film that is simply titled, ‘Jason Bourne‘, which teams up Damon and director Paul Greengrass once again for the spy thriller who seems to never remember who he is or where he came from. In addition to the usual losing sight of Jason Bourne, then spotting him in a big crowd, to losing him once again, the writers added HBO’sSilicon Valley‘ show to the element without all of the fun or comedy. I’ll get to that in a minute though.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Matt Damon’s return to the Jason Bourne franchise was an iffy issue if Paul Greengrass wasn’t returning to direct, as well. Luckily, both announced their return last year and the cast has been filling in steadily, since then. Tommy Lee Jones and Alicia Vikander are  slated for the flick and new waves are being made today as one of the villains was announced.

‘The Osbournes’ Are Coming Back to VH1!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 13th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

the-osbournes-57660_w1000

 

Think back to 2002 and what we were watching on TV. ‘American Idol‘ had just began it’s monumental first season, Joss Whedon’s space-western ‘Firefly‘ was being aired out of order, ‘The X-Files‘ was ending it’s 9 season run and America got it’s first look at a reality show based on a celebrity’s home-life with ‘The Osbournes‘. That’s right, the metaphorical shot heard round-the-world from the gun that would inevitably be responsible for making the Kardashian family famous for being rich and stupid took first blood with the family of ‘Black Sabbath‘ rocker, Ozzy Osbourne.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Few films can weave a storyline around so many actors and cities and still be a huge draw at the box office, I’m giving you the news about one of them today. The series I’m talking about are the Jason Bourne films, starring Matt Damon. We started with ‘The Bourne Identity‘ in 2002, then ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ in 2004, followed by ‘The Bourne Ultimatum‘ in 2007. In 2012, Damon stood aside and cheered Jeremy Renner on as he made the character of Aaron Cross, uniquely his own, with ‘The Bourne Legacy‘. Renner brings to life another character from the expansive world  that writer Robert Ludlum has created that both characters, and a score of others live in.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Bourne Legacy’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Let me start off by saying that I love the first three “Bourne” films.  I have owned them multiple times and on multiple formats, the latest one being the out-of -print bluray set.  Those three previous films were sort of milestones in filmmaking that took us on different continents and developed a new faster paced action film, that was brutal yet beautiful.  This new film, ‘The Bourne Legacy’, sadly does not have any of that.  I found ‘The Bourne Legacy’ slow-moving, weak, and un-interesting.

Check Out the Trailer for ‘The Bourne Legacy’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 9th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here…

This trailer looks good.  Sorry no Matt Damon, but Jeremy Renner looks like he has taken the Bourne role nicely.  “The narrative architect behind the Bourne film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: The Bourne Legacy. The writer/director expands the Bourne universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films. For The Bourne Legacy, Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.”  Enjoy the trailer.

The Bourne Legacy Has Its Lead Actor!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

As we previously reported HERE, Matt Damon will not be returning to the Bourne franchise nor will director Paul Greengrass who directed the last two films.  Because of this, there will be “The Bourne Legacy” with Tony Gilroy attached to direct.  Tony Gilroy has been involved writing the last three Bourne films.

Since we found out  Tony Gilroy would be directing and writing The Bourne Legacy, were were wondering if Matt Damon would return as the hero Jason Bourne since he was quoted as saying in interviews that he would only make another Bourne film if Paul Greengrass would return to direct.


Gilroy was interviewed the other day and he said:


“It’s a completely original screenplay….This is not a reboot or a recast or a prequel. No one’s replacing Matt Damon. There will be a whole new hero, a whole new chapter…this is a stand-alone project.”


“The easiest way to think of it is an expansion or a reveal…Jason Bourne will not be in this film, but he’s very much alive. What happened in the first three films is the trigger for what happens. I’m building a legend and an environment and a wider conspiracy…the world we’re making enhances and advances and invites Jason Bourne’s return [down the road].”

So why even make a Bourne film?  REALLY?  Call it something different.  Or are they just going to use the Bourne name to capitalize profit?

Does not make sense to me.

Your thoughts?  Has anybody read the book in question?

The 4th installment of the “Bourne” franchise will be called “The Bourne Legacy” and will be directed by Tony Gilroy.  Gilroy’s previous work has included: Michael Clayton which he directed and he has written the past Bourne films as well.


Matt Damon has stated that he will NOT return to the series without previous director Greengrass, but I think Gilroy has enough clout to lure the actor back.  If not, then the Bourne films will suffer in my opinion.


Any casting suggestion for a new Jason Bourne?

I’m so psyched for ‘Class of 1999‘ on Blu-ray from Vestron Video. This sci-fi thriller was part of my video collection when I was younger and I watched it all the time. Basically, this is about a high-school that puts in robotic teachers to keep the peace in school, but it turns into a real ‘Westworld‘ type of situation when the robot teachers start killing students. It’s then up to the kids to fight back. It stars Pam Grier, Stacy Keach, and Malcolm McDowell, which it doesn’t get cooler than that. There are new commentaries and interviews for bonus features. The Blu-ray will be released on January 30th, 2018 in a limited edition and I can’t be more excited about this if I tried to be.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

A Retrospective Look Back at the year 2007 in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2017

Written by: Dan Moran

It has been a decade since we have had an overwhelmingly great year of movies. There have been some ‘great movies’ for sure, that have been released since 2007, but a collective year of dominance like 2007 hasn’t been experienced in 10 years. We have to start with the films that people still talk about today from 2007. No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, & Zodiac. I mean what a Top 3 for one calendar year!  The closest we got to this was in 2015 when the Top 3 was, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Fury Road, & Mad Max: Fury Road.

Film Review: ‘American Assassin’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 15th, 2017

Dan M. here…

You can’t make an action movie like this in 2017 and expect anyone to be impressed with it. Not when studios crank out Bourne, Bond, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, The Raid, etc. Those are movies that execute things at such a high level with passable stories that at least allow you to buy into the character. Hell, even Jack Reacher had some self-awareness to it that made the shrug-worthy, ridiculous, sequel mildly enjoyable. American Assassin is an all-around pretty bad movie but it does have a few bright spots. It honestly felt like the writers watched a Bourne movie, then got high, and played 3 hours of Call of Duty on easy difficulty before putting pen to paper.
