Director Danny Boyle (Trainspotting, 127 Hours, Slumdog Millionaire), is not in danger of being out of work any time soon. After releasing Trance in March of this year, the versatile director is turning his attention to the small screen. In the US, he’s partnering with his Slumdog Millionaire writer and producer Simon Beaufoy (127 Hours and the upcoming Hunger Games: Catching Fire) and Christian Colson (127 Hours and Trance) for a 10 part WWII miniseries.

Hi Bryan Here….

I was just blown away with ‘Another Earth’.  When I first saw the trailer I expected one thing.  What I got was so much more and then some.  Now I am a huge fan of science fiction and space exploration.  There has been many times, mostly in college, where I have had in depth conversations with friends about numerous scenarios of “what if a new planet was created that could sustain life just like Earth”.  This film has that scenario, but it is much deeper and has so much more going for it than just the sci-fi factor.  I can honestly say that ‘Another Earth’ is one of the better films to come out in a long time.  Both director Mike Cahill and actress Brit Marling were in Dallas recently to discuss their amazing film.  The two were genuine, charming, and a lot of fun to talk to.  Keep your eye on this pair.  Great things are destined for this duo.  SEE THIS MOVIE.

Fantastic Fest‘ has released their 2nd wave of programming with a huge roster that would work as an entire film fest on its own! Add it to the first wave programming seen here, and by Jupiter’s Cock, it’s going to be exciting!!! There will be advance screenings of ‘The Martian‘, ‘High-Rise‘, ‘Green Room‘, and ‘The Keeping Room‘.

“This is a big year for genre cinema. We’re exceptionally proud to honor incredible filmmakers and welcome back some of Fantastic Fest’s favorites,” said Tim League, Fantastic Fest and Alamo Drafthouse CEO/Founder.

Sticking true to Fantastic Fest’s penchant for chaos and explosive events, they welcome Itchy-O to Austin for the first time. A blazing, 32-member aural assault from the darkest depths of Colorado, Itchy-O is a wholly immersive, musical experience on a massive scale. Said festival director Kristen Bell, “We cannot wait for them to unleash their percussive mayhem on our audience as hysteria has a welcome home at Fantastic Fest.”

See below for the full lineup of newly announced film titles for Fantastic Fest 2015. Final wave of titles to be announced shortly.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Keeping Room‘ is a western, albeit a radically new kind of western, let’s call it a feminist western, while we’re at it, imagine a feminist western that brings a combination of ‘Cold Mountain‘ and ‘Straw Dogs‘ to the screen. Set at the tail-end of the Civil War, Southerner Augusta (Brit Marling) encounters two renegade, drunken soldiers (Sam Worthington and Kyle Soller) who are dead-set on a mission of pillage and violence. Afterfending off and escaping an attempted assault she rushes towards safety.

Film Review: ‘I Origins’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan  Here…

13901-3

Director/writer Mike Cahill instantly became one of my favorite directors with his 2011 film ‘Another Earth‘. That breakout hit film was so original and beautifully made with an excellent performance by the beautiful Brit Marling and an well crafted screenplay, that it easily made it’s way into my Top 10 films of 2011, and is one film that I still watch often three years later. Now we are in 2014 and Cahill has delivered his second movie called ‘I Origins‘, and I’m here to tell you that it’s as every bit of good that you are hoping for.

‘X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST’ – AN EDITORIAL!!

This is not a review; this is a plea.

As of this posting, the Rotten Tomatoes score for X-Men: Days of Future Past is holding strong at 92%. And while it would seem that a score that high indicates the filmmakers got nearly everything right—in as much as anyone ever can—, I’d like to offer up a few suggestions for the next film, tentatively titled X-Men: Apocalypse.

Here they are, in no particular order: Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan’s Top 20 Films of 2012!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I can’t believe that 2012 is at its end and we are about to welcome 2013.  This year has gone by so fast, and man, did I see tons of films.  When I started making this 2012 list, I came up with 87 films that I enjoyed.  Yes, you read that right, 87, meaning there were probably just as many films that I didn’t enjoy.  Now, below is my top 20 of the year. I just couldn’t do it with 10 this year.  And these are films that I watched in the theater or at home and that don’t necessarily come out this year, but I did see this year.  And I’m sure I’ll get a lot of criticism for my list, but hey this is my list, not yours.  You can have your own.  But my lists tend to be different than most people’s as you can tell from my previous lists HERE. So without any further delay, below is my TOP 20 films for 2012.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Zal Batmanglij’s ‘Sound of My Voice’ put a complete spell on me after only the first few minutes of watching.  This is Batmanglij’s first feature film and is supposed to be the first of a planned trilogy.  If this is what we can expect from Batmanglij and Brit Marling, then count me as a fan-for-life.  Not in a long time has a film captivated me, leaving me wanting more so badly.  ‘Sound of My Voice’ will definitely leave you sitting on the edge of your seat and wanting more!

Hi Bryan Here….

“Peter and Lorna, a young Silver Lake couple, delve into the underworld of a cult that meets in the San Fernando valley. At the center of the group is an enigmatic young woman named Maggie who never leaves her basement chamber. The members follow Maggie blindly—growing her food, obsessively sanitizing the house, giving her their own blood for transfusions. But why? We follow Peter and Lorna as they smuggle hidden cameras into Maggie’s basement bent on exposing her as a charlatan and freeing the members from her spell.”  That is the story of a new film called ‘Sound of My Voice’.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.
