Film Review: ‘Roman J. Israel Esq.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2017

Roman J. Israel, Esq. won’t be a box office hit, and if you aren’t black or a lawyer or somewhere in that venn-diagram, you probably aren’t wanting to go see it. But you should. If you’ve ever had a forgotten dream, no matter what your profession is or the color of your skin, you will identify with Roman. It’s uncomfortable to watch, it’s heartbreaking at times, but there’s laughter and Denzel Washington. Denzel is superb.  And honestly, Collin Farrell has redeemed himself in my eyes from The Lobster, so there’s really no reason to cast this one aside.

Film Review: ‘Sully’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

sully_still

We all remember what took place in New York on January 15th, 2009. Pilots Captain Chelsey ‘Sully’ Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles took an Airbus A320 with 155 passengers aboard out of LaGuardia Airport to their destination. However, a couple of minutes after takeoff, a freak accident with a flock of birds took out both engines of the airplane, leaving the Airbus without any power and no airport immediately in range to land. Making a calculated decision to save everyone’s life, Sully was forced to land the plane in the very cold waters of the Hudson River.

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 20th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

tumblr_inline_o5w945QLTs1td0hds_1280

Last night we showed you images from the film, and today we have an awesome trailer for the remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. The original came out in 1960, which was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s ‘Seven Samurai‘. Both Kurosawa’s and John Sturges’ films are some of the better films out there in the world, so this remake has big shoes to fill. After watching the trailer, I can say it looks damn fun and what looks like to be a great take on these past classics. This is one of the films that is high on my radar, and it should be on yours too.

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. I’ve a huge fan of westerns. I wish there was more out there. luckily Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Bros. are making westerns still. You can add to that list Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who is remaking the 1960 film that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen.

CBS is just like every other network right now getting their TV schedules figured out, ordering pilots of new shows that will be on a trial basis with hopes of becoming a permanent part of the fall TV schedule. One of the series that has been given a pilot order at CBS is ‘Training Day‘ and it’s just like it sounds, a series based on the Antoine Fuqua directed film of the same name.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Max’!

by Janet White on Nov 16th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

91DgUolLpdL._SL1500_

THE FILM

 Bye Lassie…Bye Benji…Bye to my childhood doggie heroes.  There’s a new action star in town.  Max (Carlos) is the cleverest doggie hero ever.  A Belgian Malinois, Max, is also a Marine service dog.  Finally a film brings sincere tribute to the heroism and struggles these beautiful yet fierce animals endure. Max opens in a desert terrain shot as from Max’s point of view.  Max searches out the village for insurgents and a weapons stash.  Max is highly adept to weapons’ discovery and of course successful in warning his team of Marines of insurgents.  Kyle (Robbie Amell) is Max’s handler.  The two are inseparable.

In true Hollywood fashion, re-making an old classic is always a popular project and ‘Magnificent Seven‘ is no different. The new Seven is based on, of course, the 1960’s film of the same name that starred Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach and James Coburn. Of course, this classic is a remake of yet another film, from iconic director Akira Kurosawa’sSeven Samurai‘ from 1954.

Film Review: ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Denzel Washington

This remake of an 80s television show about a retired CIA operative who now helps regular people in trouble has been in the works for quite some time. I believe it was always going to star the impressive Denzel Washington, but a few directors have been in and out of the director’s chair including Nicolas Winding Refn (‘Drive‘). He bowed out a while ago and the studio asked Antoine Fuqua to helm the project, which he accepted. Fuqua worked with Washington on the Oscar winning film ‘Training Day‘, which also earned Washington an acting Oscar.

Fernando’s Review of ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Fernando M., Here….

denzel-washington-the-equalizer

Antoine Fuqua is two men.  He is the director of the critically acclaimed “Training Day,” for starters.  He is also evidently also the man that saw “Taken” a bunch of times.  When you put those experiences together, you get “The Equalizer.” Showcasing Denzel Washington again reprising his role as Denzel Washington, a strong , smooth, moral protagonist that is going to do a bunch of stuff with guns, but somehow still manages to have a part in the script where he gets to dance.  Denzel plays Denzel quite well, so it’s hard to fault him for that.  In this case in particular, he plays action Denzel better than ever!

Trailer for ‘The Equalizer’ Will Blow Your Minds!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 12th, 2014

Hi, Jana here,

'Safe House' Premiere - New York

I’m talking about ‘The Equalizer’ today. Denzel Washington, the acting genius from ‘Training Day‘, ‘American Gangster‘ and ‘The Book of Eli‘ is back in a role he’s been born to play. The trailer just dropped on ‘The Equalizer‘. It gave me goosebumps watching this small clip of what HAS got to be an excellent movie! It conjured up feelings of Michael Caine in ‘Harry Brown‘ or Gerard Butler in ‘Law Abiding Citizen‘. I’ve always been a huge fan of action movies, anyway, give me a revenge-based action movie and I’m enthralled!

Hello, Jana here,

A John Grisham novel is like a mug of coffee on a stormy day, a glass of wine after the kids are asleep, or even a Xanax when you want to rip someone’s head off. The point is, it’s a calming, reassuring presence. It’s going to be an intense, legal, thrill ride that has a feel-good ending. Grisham’s tried and true writing style is gripping, authentic and something that lends itself to film adaptation easily. This has been the case with ‘The Firm‘, ‘The Pelican Brief‘, ‘The Client‘ and ‘A Time to Kill‘ among several others. There is even a complete departure from his norm evident in ‘Christmas With The Kranks‘.

Film Review: ‘2 Guns’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 2nd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

2-Guns-trailer

Surprisingly, I had a lot of fun with this action-crime thriller from Baltasar Kromakur, who previously worked on ‘ContrabandMark Wahlberg. I didn’t expect much from this seemingly stale film, but once the end credit sequence started rolling, I only could hope for a sequel and for Denzel Washington and Wahlberg to say ‘Yes’ to more films together, as their on-screen chemistry is the best I’ve seen in a long while. In what could be an off-shoot version of ‘Bad Boys‘, ‘2 Guns‘ packs a lot of explosions, gunfire, and laughs to garner a second viewing. The trailers do not do this film justice, and I’m hoping for a sizable dent in the box office this weekend with this entertaining “shoot-em-up”.
