Film Review: ‘Book Club’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 17th, 2018

Nothing says ‘Ladies’ Night’ quite like clinking glasses and a crisp bottle of Pinot Grigio. As four lifelong friends continue their tradition of gathering to gossip and discuss the latest read, one attempts to spice up their collectively drab lives by introducing a saucy trilogy to the table. ‘Book Club‘ is a playful commentary on having fun no matter your age or stage in life, and although this comedy is predictable and oozing with cheesy brie, it counteracts with uproariously endless humor from a top-notch cast.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2018

THE FILM


What if I were to tell you that Woody Allen basically made his own version of Alfred Hitchcock’sRear Window‘ that starred himself and Diane Keaton? You’d be excited, right? Well, it happened in 1993 and is kind of light a 1st cousin to ‘Annie Hall‘ as Allen and Keaton play a couple in their mid-life who thing their neighbor killed someone. The film is called ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery‘, and is a comedic film that served to alleviate the pain of Allen’s divorce from Mia Farrow.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #3!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Annie Hall + Diane Keaton + khakis

I love Woody Allen movies and I imagine there will be quite a number of scenes in this column from his films. The first one comes from Annie Hall though. This scene just speaks to me so much and I think it’s a perfect capture of two people who were once in love, but still want to be in each other’s lives, even if it can be a bit awkward. Finding something to talk about to pass the uncomfortable time, or seeing new things in your former significant other’s place that make you question what new things they’re into now that you’re gone is delightfully funny to watch.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Finding Dory’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Another Pixar sequel is here, and this time it takes place under water with ‘Finding Dory‘, the sequel to the 2003 hit ‘Finding Nemo‘. Wow, has it really been thirteen years since Pixar made $940 million off that cute orange fish? Well, Pixar is in the sequel making business these days, and with ‘Finding Dory‘, they seem to have made an enjoyable and entertaining sequel that has some funny moments, but misses the mark on the heart and soul of the first film – not to mention the lack of creative story telling devices that the first movie had throughout. I’m sure this sequel will make a huge splash with all audiences, but the kids are more likely to eat this up than the adults.

Film Review: ‘5 Flights Up’!

by Jewish Joy on Apr 12th, 2015

Hi guys, Beka P., Here…

b5200c6107fc3d41d19a2b66835c3974_567x210

5 Flights Up hits and misses, and yet in the end, still manages to leave you somewhat satisfied. It’s the story of an aging couple, struggling to make their home for the last forty years grow with them as they deal with the issues age brings. Their Brooklyn apartment is, as you may have guessed, 5 flights up, which poses a problem for both their aging bodies, and, their dog, Dorothy, who is having problems walking. And so, the film takes us on a whirlwind journey of to sell or not to sell, to give in to the changes taking place outside their door, or settle in and be comfortable with what they love: each other.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

2015_passes_banner

I can’t believe April is almost here again. It just seemed like two weeks ago we were knee deep in 2014’s Dallas Film Festival, which had some excellent films showcased. But that time of the year is just about to begin and the good folks over at the Dallas Film Festival have announced the first 10 films that will show at the festival. Also, it looks like the fest will be honoring the excellent filmmaker John Landis as well, which is all sorts of cool.

Bryan Reviews Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ is one hell of a fine movie, no matter what Woody Allen says.  The video and audio make this the best the film has ever looked since the theatres. This film has some of the most iconic shots in any Woody Allen film and for that fact , any film made.  The whole film is just one beautiful shot after another.  Frame worthy.  While there are no extras besides a theatrical trailer, this is still one bluray worthy of owning.

Bryan Reviews ‘Annie Hall’ Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Annie Hall’ is finally on blu-ray and that is good news folks.  But at least for me, it’s bittersweet good news.  Sadly, like most or all Woody Allen dvd’s or blu-rays, this does not have any extras besides the trailer.  Wouldn’t it be amazing if there was a commentary by Allen on ‘Annie Hall’?  But, with that said, this is the best the film has looked and should be in everyone’s collection.  ‘Annie Hall’ is a comedic masterpiece of love, loss, and wit.  One of the best films of all time.

Hi Bryan Here….

Here is one hell of a geek deal.  ‘The Godfather’ Trilogy for 60% off.  It normally sells for $125.00, but now through us and AMAZON, get it for only $49.99.  Now I know Godfather III gets a bad rap, and it is nowhere near the quality of the third film, but compared to most trilogies or even movies, Godfather III is pretty great.
