Film Review: ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 5th, 2018

Going into ‘The Cloverfield Paradox‘, which should be renamed to ‘The Cloverfield Potato‘, I was a huge fan of this movie universe and its mythology. With 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, I loved the use of handheld cameras and the found footage aspect to tell this crazy story of a giant creature wreaking havoc on everyone and everything in New York, despite the annoying characters. Some years later, we got a film set in the same universe with ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, which had us holed up with John Goodman and couple other great characters where something terrible was happening outside their underground bunker, just as something equally awful was happening underground. JJ Abrams had announced a third film some years ago that would take place in this ‘Cloverfield‘ universe, but went thru many delays and a ton of titles, including ‘The God Particle‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

cloverfield

The ‘Cloverfield‘ series seems to be a bit low-key, but once the film lands it gathers huge amounts of steam  and fan love. The original film that kickstarted the franchise is 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, 8 years later in 2016 saw ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘. While the film wasn’t a direct sequel, but more like a cousin to the original, we’ve learned that JJ Abrams‘ ‘God Particle‘ is the next relative in the series.

Film Review: ’10 Cloverfield Lane’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 10th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen-Shot-2016-01-15-at-7.53.37-AM-620x400

Has it really been 8 years since we saw New York destroyed in ‘Cloverfield‘, which was the “found footage” film produced by J.J. Abrams about a giant monster in NYC. That film was highly secretive before it came out, and nobody really knew anything about it, but it did well at the box office and there was a lot of talk of a sequel for a number of years. A couple of years ago, things started popping up on sites that said “Untitled J.J. Abrams” project, and as of a couple of months ago, we got the first glimpse of a trailer called ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, produced by Abrams again and directed by first time feature director Dan Tratchenberg (Portal short). The studio and Abrams himself said that this was not a direct sequel to 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, but it was a blood relative or spiritual successor to it, because where do you really go from the end of ‘Cloverfield‘?

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-01-15 at 8.53.41 AM

I knew about a sequel, but I had no idea it was in production or even was close to having a trailer. Color me surprised as J.J. Abrams and his company Bad Robot have done it again, flying way under the radar to release a sequel to the highly regarded film ‘Cloverfield‘. This sequel is titled ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘ and has a great cast including John Goodman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Scott Pilgrim), and John Gallagher Jr. (Newsroom).

Hi Bryan Here….

This movie looks insanely good.  What a cool idea.  It was just a matter of time, and by the looks of this film, this is going to be dark, twisted, and full of superhero badassery.   At least I hope so.  What do you think?

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This is definitely on my radar now. Jeff Bridges and Chris Hemsworth, meaning The Dude and Thor are most likely going to star in a new film called Bad Times at the El Royale, which will be directed by Drew Goddard and released by 20th Century Fox. Despite the awesome two actors and the cool title, filmmaker Drew Goddard is one to watch for sure.

Film Review: War For The Planet of the Apes!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 12th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I believe we all thought that Tim Burton killed the Planet of the Apes franchise back in 2001 with his horrible version of man vs. ape. Luckily in 2011, the studio breathed new life into the franchise with Rupert Wyatt’s early telling of what is to become with Planet of the Apes with astonishing visual effects, acting, and one hell of a story. That film – Rise of the Planet of the Apes showed that one ape named Caesar (Andy Serkis) was to become the first highly intelligent and humanized ape, but it came at a great cost with a virus that wiped out most of Earth’s population. In the sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes that was taken over by Matt Reeves (Cloverfield), Caesar and his ape friend are battling for their lives against the humans that have survived the virus outbreak. Now we have arrived at the conclusion of this epic trilogy – War For The Planet of the Apes, with Reeves in the director’s chair again as we see an aging and grayish haired Caesar tending to his family and still battling the demons of his former human-hating friend Koba, whom was killed in the previous film.

The Cabin in the Woods is Coming to 4K!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

One of the finer horror/comedy movies to ever be released on the big screen is finally getting the 4K UHD treatment. That movie is The Cabin in the Woods, meaning we will get all those monsters and mermaids in glorious HDR. I just can’t wait to watch this all over again. The 4K release will also come with the standard Blu-ray, as well as the Digital Copy, which will release on September 5th. Below is all the information you’ll need.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

Film Review: ‘LA LA LAND’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

screen-shot-2016-12-14-at-12-50-03-pm

Ever wish there was a movie that didn’t involve zombies, drug cartels, robots, or superheroes facing off in a post-apocalyptic end-of-world scenario? It seems more often than not these days, that those types of films are taking up all of the theaters at your local movie theater. Luckily, every once in a while, we get something different, kind, and magical. This time of year, we are so very fortunate to get one of the absolute BEST films of the year, if not in the past several years with ‘La La Land‘.

Film Review: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 11th, 2014

Ben K., Here…

maxresdefault

Back in 2011, I ended my “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” review excited about what the future held for the rebooted series. As the screen went dark and the credits of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” began to roll, I realized my high expectations had been met just three years later. If “Rise” hit all the right notes of an introductory chapter, then “Dawn” was even more on pitch with the rising action of a second act.
