Blu-ray Review: ‘COCO’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 26th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein.)

If you’re like me, you’ve seen the previews for Coco and thought, what is this movie and how is Disney going to make a movie all about death translate to kids. It didn’t stop me from jumping at the chance to preview the film and now I submit my apologies to Disney and the world that I ever doubted their creative genius. I’m loco for Coco and you will be, too.

Film Review: ‘Coco’!

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2018

Who would have thought that some 22 years later, we would still be getting ‘Mission: Impossible‘ films with Tom Cruise as the go-to guy in saving the world time and time again?  I definitely didn’t expect this, but I’m thrilled Tom Cruise and company continue to make these electrifying films that seem to up the ante and get better with each installment. Tom Cruise is 56 years old, which is 5 years older than Wilford Brimley was in the movie ‘Cocoon‘. Let that sit with you for a minute. What I’m trying to say is that Cruise doesn’t look nor does he act like a 56-year-old man. Instead, he looks and acts like a 25-year-old youngster with a death wish and penchant for the extreme and I believe every second of it, especially in this sixth film ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout‘.

Dan’s 2018 Oscar Picks!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 3rd, 2018

Here are my Oscar Predictions. I haven’t seen many of the shorts or documentaries so I didn’t even bother with those, but I have seen everything else that is nominated for the big categories except Call me by Your Name. Also, I fell asleep during The Post, but so did everyone.

As a hard and fast rule, I refuse to recognize any recent best picture winners until a movie comes along that was better on every single filmmaking level than Mad Max: Fury Road. This year is no different, so congrats to Fury Road.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

81b9ddee396ef2fabbc0bb1635a845ae

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.

Film Review: ‘Oddball’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 26th, 2016

Beka P., Here…

oddball-post

Oddball, directed by Stuart McDonald, is an unexpected true tale about a chicken farmer and his misbehaving dog, Oddball, and how with a bit of determination and some help from family, anything is possible. Swampy, played by beloved Aussie actor, Shane Jacobson, is somewhat of an outcast. A widowed chicken farmer on the outskirts of town, he doesn’t much care what people think of his strange ways, or his strange dog, Oddball. The only caveat there is that Oddball seems to always be getting into trouble with the townspeople. So much so that Oddball is out of chances.

Film Review: ‘Dear White People’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2014

Hillary T., Here…

13914-2

At first I was leery of the title “Dear White People.” I mean, is it a satire or a serious treatise on racial relations in colleges everywhere? Well, it’s both, and it’s for everyone. It’s absolutely wonderful, and for a first time director’s debut, it packs a sincerity that is poignant and lingering. I couldn’t stop laughing, and squirming at the same time, which means that this film did its job and I commend Justin Simien on his brilliant casting of such an independent film.

Prince Debuts Two New Albums In September!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 25th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

2011 MusiCares Person Of The Year Tribute To Barbra Streisand - Concert

 

 

Most musicians spread out their musical goodness over a period of time, but Prince is not your average musical artist. After working with his new band, 3rdEyeGirl, the fruits of their labors are going to be tangible in the form of ‘PlectrumElectrum‘, the new album that will drop on September 30. In a style of his own, Prince will release a new solo album the same day. It’s a great day for all the die hard  Joey Coco, Alexander Nevermind, or The Purple One fans out there waiting to devour some new sounds, look for the LP called ‘Art Official Age‘.

Monty Python Says Goodbye at O2 Arena in London!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 8th, 2014
Hi all, Jana here,

1D274906260951-today-monty-python-2-140630.blocks_desktop_large

We were teased with knowledge it was being put together, we were tormented when we got to do the reddit live Q&A with the legends. Now it’s almost so close I can taste it! If you’re unsure of who I’m talking about let’s talk about how a 5-ounce bird possibly carry a 1-pound coconut? If you still are unsure of who this great group of people are, you should be banished. But seriously, this material has been around for 40 years, you should have to face the Black Knight. Don’t worry about his appearance, it’s just a flesh wound.

Here Is Ben’s Film Review of ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2014

Ben K., Here…

godzilla-2014-wallpaper-images-photos-0302091031

Despite a rich and incredibly varied film history, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more famous Japanese cinematic export than Godzilla. Born at Toho Company in 1954, he’s still alive and kicking ass, as it were, at the ripe age of sixty. Cast as a villain and a hero over the years, whatever his role, he has always been nature’s favorite solution to just about any problem. Six decades ago he was awakened by atomic bomb testing and took revenge on mankind for creating them. In this new Gareth Edwards iteration, other monsters feed on radiation from our nuclear power plants in order to wreak similar havoc, so Godzilla is sent to annihilate them.

‘Friday the 13th’ Revamped as TV Series!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 26th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

friday-series_616

I love a good slasher movie. I love when the air gets cooler, days get dark earlier and I’m curled up inside the house with windows open, some candles lit and watching someone’s newest vision of whatever maniac of the moment is on my screen.  Sometimes the more they remake a slasher, the better they end up being. Of course I’m a giant fan of bad movies, bad horror films to be exact. Now I see one of my favorite horror series ‘Friday the 13th‘ is being courted for not only a remake, but a remake of platform as well. This isn’t another movie version we’re talking about, this will be developed into a 1-hour long TV show.

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

“We were up at “the top of the world” and we saw this shooting star and we decided to go look for it. But instead of finding the shooting star we saw this… this circus tent.”

EXCLUSIVE: The first time I watched ‘Killer Klowns From Outer Space’, I was about nine years old and it was on HBO.  I watched it with my dad, and I remember how much we laughed and how frightened we were at certain moments.  Especially me.  I remember thinking how cool and scary those killer klowns were, and how much I wanted to go into that circus tent and shoot the popcorn guns.  It was one of the defining moments in my life where I know I wanted to be involved with film, especially horror.  I loved how there was very little CG, rather it was all real FX, costumes, and makeup.  After my first viewing, I looked in the paper to see if it was running anytime again during the week (back then, we had to read the paper to see what was airing on the one channel of HBO).

It’s that time of year again where traditions reign supreme: Yule tide greetings, holiday parties, fighting with family, caroling, trimming the tree, spiked egg nog and awesomely bad Christmas album covers. It’s nice to know some things never change, like there being no such thing as a good Christmas album cover. So, as you settle in for your long winter’s nap with a cup of hot cocoa, here is another round of groovy Christmas albums covers to give you a giggle. Read the rest of this entry »

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Steve Guttenberg has been missing from the screen for about twenty years. People actually believed he was dead. He had a good run in the 80’s, and then just kind of vanished. It’s not that he was gone, per se, he just was starring in movies that no one cared to see. And should not see. Ever.

Disclaimer: I hate being scared. With a passion.

Chiller channel has decided that showing pre-made horror is not enough. They’re bringing us Steve Nile’s Remains, their first original movie, on December 16th. I’m so glad my roommate hates being scared as much as I do, or I might have had to find somewhere else to be that night.

‘The Goodbye Look’

Airdate 06/21/2011

When last we left the 4Gs, they were in a mysterious greenhouse text-snooping Melissa’s phone to get information on Rosewood’s most famous missing dead person, Ian. Cue the creepy slamming doors and then rocks or coconuts (neither make sense, but what else could it be?) falling from the sky on the glass panes.  Using their keen survival instincts, they leave and wind up walking in Allison’s old drive-way/yard only to see Jason (A’s brother). Parker Bagley was sneakily replaced with Drew Van Acker, former underwear model. This handsome, new Jason is dimpled and rough and blond. Now I finally have a legit reason to watch this show.
