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,

24_1vincent_cassel

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,

 

 

jason-bourne-and-aaron-cross

 

 

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.

Read the rest of this entry »

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook



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?

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook



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.

Film Review: The Hunter’s Prayer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Dan M., here….

the-hunters-prayer-trailer-one-001

The Hunter’s Prayer is the best network TV pilot for a show that will run out of ideas and suck by season 2 that I’ve seen in awhile. It’s full of clichés, caricatures, and familiar twists for any thriller genre. If someone took Taken, The Professional, Cobra, Jack Reacher, & Jason Bourne (the bad one), put them in a blender, and then strained it to remove all the good healthy stuff from those movies, you’d have The Hunter’s Prayer. All that said, I didn’t check my phone during it, so I guess I’m the sucker.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’!

THE FILM

Since the release of ‘The Force Awakens‘, Disney will be releasing a ‘Star Wars‘ film every year for the foreseeable future. Well, it’s been a year since ‘The Force Awakens‘, which means it’s time for another ‘Star Wars‘ film, and luckily for us, we get ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘. I’m so glad that Disney is allowing up and coming, young  filmmakers a chance to have a go at ‘Star Wars‘, because director Gareth Edwards (‘Monsters‘ and ‘Godzilla‘) has knocked it out of the park, even though there were some re-shoots with writer Tony Gilroy (‘Michael Clayton‘ and ‘The Bourne‘ films). This is the ‘Star Wars‘ film we have wanted for a long time, in that we get to see some characters do some truly amazing and badass things that we’ve never seen before, and a return to some of those classic set pieces and ships.

Film Review: ‘The Accountant’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

The Accountant‘ is not just about someone who does people’s taxes and saves people money? It’s so much more than that with Gavin O’Connor’s (Miracle, Warrior) film ‘The Accountant‘, starring Ben Affleck or as we all know him now as ‘Batman‘. ‘The Accountant‘ is a mix between Jason Bourne, Rain Man, and John Wick as we follow a man named Christian Wolff (if that’s his real name?) who was diagnosed as a high-functioning autistic kid at a young age. He had an affinity for numbers and solving puzzles, and was super quick to do so. He might have just been a superhero from an early age.

It had a hell of a cast and featured the character Hannibal Lektor for the first time on screen. Yes, even before he rose to superstardom in ‘Silence of the Lambs‘.

If there’s one thing the film world needs, it’s more spy movies! How about adapting Vince Flynn’s 14-best-selling novel series, ‘American Assassin‘? OK, so I didn’t think of it first, CBS Films and Lionsgate did because that’s the next film coming down the action pipeline. Not only that, but they’ve just brought in an A-lister that was part of not one, but two films that won the Best Film category for an Oscar for the last two years – Michael Keaton.

Dwayne Johnson Announces Robert Ludlum Adaptation!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 30th, 2014

Hi guys, Jana here,

Robert Ludlum is the brain that brought us the Jason Bourne novels that have spawned into an incredibly lucrative film franchise. Even though the writer died in 2001, doesn’t mean that his cannon of work is at rest. Prior to becoming a writer, Ludlum was a U.S. Marine, a theatrical actor and producer. His experience in the theatre is likely what has led his written works to film adaptation so smoothly. He authored some 27 thrillers and although Bourne may be the most well-known of Ludlum’s characters doesn’t mean he was the only one.

I’m very glad that the science-fiction genre is back and doing very well these days. The more sci-fi in theaters, the better. And we have what seems a pretty good lineup this summer of movies that involve everything you could want in a science-fiction film. Here to start off June 2014 is ‘Edge of Tomorrow‘, formally titled ‘All You Need Is Kill‘, which is based on the 2004 novel by Hiroshi Sakurazaka of the same name. Director Doug Liman (‘Swingers‘, ‘Go‘, ‘The Bourne Identity‘) took a swing at this $178 million dollar budget film and hit a home-run.

Tom Hanks is back out on the water again with Paul Greengrass‘ ‘Captain Phillips‘, ste true story that was covered in the media a few years ago, where cargo ship captain Richard Phillips (Hanks) and his crew were attacked by Somali pirates off the coast of Africa during a delivery, and where Phillips was actually taken hostage in a tony life boat for a few days. As there have been several survival movies coming out as of recently, this one in particular can sit high with the rest of them, as Greengrass and Hanks do exceptional work and keep this two-hour long suspenseful film on the edge of your seat. I expect high box office returns for this outing as Hanks and the plot will drive people to theaters this weekend.

Fox’s new comedy and has given it a 22-episode order.  NBC aired ‘Family Ties back in the 80’s, which of course, is where Fox got his start.  The series will be a family comedy written by Sam Laybourne of ‘Cougar Town’, and produce by Will Gluck.  All of the major networks were wanting this project, but NBC won out.

David Reviews ‘The Bed Sitting Room’ DVD!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 17th, 2012

David, Here….

Firstly, I just want to point out that I enjoy British comedy.  It just has such a different feel than most of what we get on this side of the pond.  So, when I got my hands on this, I was understandably pretty excited despite not knowing anything about the film.  After reading the back of the case and watching the trailer (included on the title screen of the DVD) I was even more excited, it just sounded so absurd!  And… it was.

Hi Bryan Here….

So we have written about the upcoming ‘300’ prequel a few times on the site and what the whole gist of the story will be about.  Seems like progress is being made on the project and Warner Bros. has found their lead.  Actor Sullivan Stapleton will play Themistokles in ‘300: The Battle of Artemisia’ which will be directed by Noam Murro.

Hi Bryan Here…..

I had so much fun with Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Haywire’.  It’s packed with thrills, gun fights, drama, great chase sequences, and some of the best fight choreography I have seen in a long time.  Much like most of Soderbergh’s films, ‘Haywire’ packs a stellar cast including retired MMA fighter and Dallas native Gina Carano (who is our main character).  After watching ‘Haywire’, I quickly wanted more.  There needs to be a sequel pronto and I say this with the upmost certainty; ‘Haywire’ is the new ‘Bourne’ and Carano can take on Matt Damon anytime.

Bluray/DVD Picks For The 3rd Week Of February!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Weekend Events in Dallas

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 2nd, 2010

This is going to be a new weekly post where I will let you know some of the ultra cool events and affairs that are happening around the Metroplex.  Movie screenings, concerts, comedy acts, drink specials, and much much more will be added.  So look to this every weekend for something awesome to do and act accordingly.  We start this weekend off with a LONG weekend.

On Saturday September 4th the ultimate AC/DC tribute band, “Back In Black” will be performing live at the House of Blues with opening act “Blizzard of Ozz: A Tribute to Ozzy Osbourne”.  This show promises to rock your collective socks off.  These guys are AWESOME.  Rock OUT!  See what Back in Black is all about HERE. And buy tickets to the event HERE.

The midnight show this week at the Inwood Theatre in Dallas is The Last of the Mohicans.  Times are Friday and Saturday night at midnight.  Not your typical late night movie, but a great movie non the less.  Plus the Inwood has an excellent full service bar you can bring your cocktails into the movie and sit on counches and bean bags and love seats.  Check it out HERE.

If you are into wine and grilling then go to Veritas Wine Room on Sunday starting at 7:00pm and it will go till whenever.  Fernando will be turning into a crazy ninja chef and will be grilling just about everything and he promises it will be SPICY.  Veritas asks you that you RSVP to them and let them know how many are coming out so they know how much food to buy.  Contact them HERE.

For something a little different, head on over to the Lakewood Theatre on Friday at about 8:00pm and catch all that is AWESOME with Viva Dallas Burlesque.  These amazing performers are guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you.  I had the pleasure of seeing this show last month and it was amazing.  There was a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas routine and an Angel vs. Devil routine.  You will hear some great music and see some excellent dance.  Head HERE to find out about it.
