Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Halloween-main

We’ve talked about a ‘Halloween‘ remake before here. Hell, Rob Zombie even made two remakes of ‘Halloween‘, which really didn’t live up to anything that resembled a horror film. But that was long ago and we like to forget such films ever took place. The original horror master and filmmaker John Carpenter, who made the original film is putting together a reincarnation of his own film and just announced that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will be writing and directing the new film. As you probably already know, McBride and Green have a long lasting relationship, as they both worked on ‘Pineapple Express’, ‘Eastbound and Down’, and the recent ‘Vice Principals’.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Vice-Principals-Danny-McBride-c-Jason-LaVeris-FilmMagic-860x450_c

Danny McBride and Walton Goggins co-star in a new HBO series where the pair play vice principals. The twist comes when these star VP’s discover the top spot in their workplace heirarchy is available – that of principal. That brings out the ugly sense of competition between these two and the power play is upped in the extreme.

The comedic actor, mostly known for HBO’sEastbound and Down‘ as Kenny Powers is in talks to co-star in Ridley Scott’s next installment of the ‘ALIEN‘ franchise, titled ‘Alien: Covenant‘.

Fantastic Fest Film Review: ‘Halloween’ 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2018

The original Halloween is barred none the best of the slasher genre. It is a simple story, a young boy kills his sister and is put in a mental institution, 16 years later he breaks out and goes on a rampage murdering people on Halloween. Michael Myers is terrifying in a way that Jason or Freddy isn’t. He feels more “realistic” in his behaviors in the first movie. Michael is just an unstoppable force of death who Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) runs in to. All of the sequels to Halloween try too hard to explain things or add significance. Sure, there are some fun entries that with the right amount of inebriation are quick fun. But ultimately they all abandon what was so great about the first, its simplicity. Halloween, 2018, erases all of the sequels in just 3-4 lines of dialogue and goes right back to the roots of what made the original such a groundbreaking horror film.

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

Enjoy the trailer for Season 2 of Vice Principals!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

There’s a new trailer for HBO’s 2nd and final season of Vice Principals, which will premiere on HBO September 17th. This season looks completely insane. When we left season one, somebody with a mask on, shot Danny McBride, as he and Walton Goggins were on a mission to get the current Principal kicked out of school. It was a cliff-hanger to say the least.

Alien: Covenant is Coming to 4K and Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Well well well. It’s nowhere near game over man with the Alien franchise or their home video releases. Alien: Covenant is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD on August 15th with an earlier Digital release on August 1st. In addition to the mass roll out of these releases, there will also be Limited Edition Exclusives available at certain retailers. Luckily, there won’t be any bonus features specific to the different retailers like they’ve annoyingly done in the past. These exclusives are basically package-only differences, which you can read about below. It looks like Dolby Atmos will be the preferred audio format along with a ton of extras included. I can’t wait to watch this again.

Review #2 of ‘Alien Covenant’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Alien-Covenant-Teaser-Trailer-020

A crew gets a distress signal from a planet. Crew lands on that seemingly abandoned planet. Planet has aliens. Aliens infect or attack humans. A survivor or two must fight said alien to get off the planet. Rinse and repeat. That isn’t to say the Alien: Covenant is a bad movie, it really isn’t but as far as the broad strokes are concerned it is a paint by numbers Alien movie. A marked improvement from Prometheus because it has better characters but the formula to this point is getting a bit stale for me. I didn’t hate this movie. I know it sounds like I did but really I’m just ready for it to evolve a bit more.

‘Alien: Covenant’ Trailer is Here!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

This holiday weekend, we were not only given food, gifts, love, kisses, and hugs; but we also received a different type of hug. We got a new face hugger in the ‘Alien: Covenant‘ trailer. Yes, a new ‘Alien‘ film is coming on May 19th, 2017 and is directed by the Ridley Scott, who gave us the original ‘Alien’ film. This is a red band trailer and is all sorts of scary and wonderful. This is the ‘Alien’ movie we’ve been looking for over the past couple of decades, and judging by this trailer alone, this looks to deliver. I really can’t wait to see if anyone in space can hear me scream again.

Film Review: ‘Joe’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

joe-movie-review-09122013-145102

Director David Gordon Green has had quite an impressive resume over the last ten years, and this being 2014, Green is showing no signs of weakening or bowing down to the execs of Hollywood any time soon. Green’s resume includes ‘Pineapple Express‘, ‘Eastbound and Down‘, ‘Your Highness‘, and the more recent drama ‘Prince Avalanche‘. He also produced the gritty thriller ‘Compliance‘. Green seemed to step away from the likes of Will Ferrell, Seth Rogen, and Danny McBride, and made an unrelenting yet beautiful movie with ‘Joe‘, which is based on a novel by Larry Brown of the same name from 1991.

Synopsis: The apocalypse has come to Hollywood. The good have been taken to heaven during the rapture, and the bad (including most actors) have been left to fend for themselves against all sorts of invading evil. The story follows six actors (Seth Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Jay Baruchel, Danny McBride, and Craig Robinson) as they struggle to survive, find food and water, fight off monsters, and avoid killing each other in the process.

Film Review: ‘This is the End’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 this_is_the-end

Car crashes, explosions, decapitations, exorcisms, the apocalypse, and tons of dick jokes make up Evan Goldberg and Seth Rogen’sThis is the End‘. And I can say that it’s the most fun I’ve had at the movies in ten years. In this dark comedy, we have the entire Apatow clan plus many more cameos of our favorite comedians who all play themselves as they take on the end of days. It’s genuine, gut-bustingly funny, sick, crude, and self-deprecating, which all results in the likes of a twisted reality show, complete with solo interviews with a camera scattered throughout the movie. I anticipate a large opening weekend with a long lasting power after ‘Man of Steel‘ releases later this week.

As we have previously reported, Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are making their directorial debut with ‘End of the World’.  This is based on a short film that starred Rogen and Jay Baruchel called ‘Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse’.  It had both  Rogen and Baruchel who took shelter in their apartment as they dealt with the end of the world.  Of course this is going to be on a much bigger scale and since it’s Rogen and Goldberg’s first job at directing; they want to litter the film with tons of big cameos.

Bryan Finds ’30 Minutes or Less’ Outrageously Funny!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

’30 Minutes or Less’ is one of those movies you will laugh so hard that your entire body will hurt after watching the film.  Ruben Fleischer directed ’30 Minutes or Less’.  His previous film was the horror comedy hit ‘Zombieland’ with Jesse Eisneberg.  After ‘Zombieland’ made tons and tons of money, Fleischer was pretty much offered every mega budget film in Hollywood.  He turned them all down to direct this very small comedy.  Not sure why he chose to do this, but it is indeed hysterical.  This movie does not succeed in its story plot, but rather its knee slapping comedic dialogue between the actors.  This is one of those films you will be quoting for days and remember at inappropriate moments and just burst out laughing from a piece of the dialogue.  Great little film ’30 Minutes or Less’ is.  Definitely recommend seeing it.
