Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-11 at 11.15.09 PM

I think we can all say that Edgar Wright is the coolest filmmaker that ever lived. Wright gave us ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World‘, ‘The World’s End‘ and much more! Filmmakers can go their whole careers and never come close to making a film as fun or as good as any of these. Oh it’s true. It’s damn true. Luckily for us, Wright has been hard at work on his latest film, which is called ‘Baby Driver‘, and it finally has a trailer.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Edgar Wright, is a man known for some distinct movies that have a massive cult following. If you know who Simon Pegg is chances are you know who Wright is. Why do I say this? Because the two have collaborated on the Cornetto Trilogy consisting of some of the most awesome movies in recent history. ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The World’s End‘ are those movies and chances are good you can’t attend a Comic-Con anywhere without coming across someone dressed as one of the characters.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Three_Flavours_Cornetto_Trilogy_DVD

 

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright are a trio their fans love seeing come together. They put together a troika of films dubbed the The Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy as they’re color-coded and coincide with a specific Cornetto ice cream flavor. . ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ features strawberry-flavored Cornetto, signifying the film’s bloody and gory elements. ‘Hot Fuzz’ is the original blue Cornetto and signifies the police element in the film. ‘The World’s End‘ is a tasty green, mint chocolate chip flavor in a subtle nod to aliens and science fiction. Pegg and Wright wrote the films with rapier-sharp wit, killer action and a touch of ticker.

Edgar Wright Will Not Be Directing ‘Ant-Man’ Anymore!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Worlds End - Photocall

I’m afraid I have some bad news. Director Edgar Wright has exited ‘Ant-Man‘, the upcoming Marvel film. This just sucks. Wright who has directed ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘The World’s End‘, and ‘Scott Pilgrim‘ was announced as the director of ‘Ant-Man‘ a few years ago and recently released casting news that Paul Rudd was going to star in the film. Well, we got word today that Wright and Marvel have parted ways due to creative differences on where they want to see the film go.

Previously, we reported that Paul Rudd will be playing the hero, which he still is, but Douglas will also be playing ‘ANT-MAN‘ aka Hank Pym, while Rudd will be playing Scott Lang.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The-Worlds-End-2

You know when you get Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost in a film together, you have a giant heavy piece of gold. This looks amazing. I love that this trailer has the running “jumping over the fence’ gag that was in their previous films ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ and ‘Hot Fuzz‘. This film will be released August 23rd of this year and looks like Simon Pegg’s character is the dunce in this one. This film is at the top of my list now for this year.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Edgar Wright’s fourth film is official.  Universal has green lit ‘The World’s End’, a film that starts 20 years after five childhood friends attempted an epic pub crawl. The friends reunite when one of them becomes hell bent on trying the drinking marathon again. They are convinced to stage an encore by mate Gary King, a 40-year old man trapped at the cigarette end of his teens, who drags his reluctant pals to their home town and once again attempts to reach the fabled pub, The World’s End. As they attempt to reconcile the past and present, they realize the real struggle is for the future, not just theirs but humankind’s. Reaching The World’s End is the least of their worries according to Deadline.

Ron Howard Shoots Second on Star Wars Han Solo Film!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

960

It’s official now. Ron Howard has taken over directing duties on the upcoming Star Wars untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. Yesterday, we got the unfortunate news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired after creative differences with the studio heads, mainly Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan on the tone of the film. Lord and Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) spent almost five months making this Han Solo film, but again, were fired for having a different style than what the studio was expecting. It sent fans in an uproar for sure and for good reason. It’s ultra rare that studios will fire directors this late in the game.

Who will be the Next ‘Doctor’?

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

doctor-who-peter-capaldi

Peter Capaldi, who is the current, brilliant ‘Doctor Who’ on the ever popular series for BBC has announced he is leaving the role. Capaldi made the announcement on a radio show that his last appearance as the good Doctor will be the 2017 Christmas special. Capaldi said, “One of the greatest privileges of being ‘Doctor Who‘ is to see the world at its best. From our brilliant crew and creative team working for the best broadcaster on the planet, to the viewers and fans whose endless creativity, generosity and inclusiveness points to a brighter future ahead. I can’t thank everyone enough. It’s been cosmic.” Capaldi has been the Doctor since 2013, and now BBC will have the find the new Doctor.

Film Review: ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1200

Taika Waititi is one name you will soon remember for a very long time if you don’t already know it. Waititi is writer/director here for ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘, which is already in the top 5 BEST movies of the year, but Waititi is also an actor too. He starred in and directed the recent ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘, as well as directed ‘Eagle vs Shark‘ and even worked on ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ amongst other films. He is currently directing the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ film for Marvel, and it’s easy to see why Marvel hired this guy by watching ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘. Even if the premise here is similar to other films, Waititi makes the story and characters entirely refreshing and original.

Film Review: ‘Ant-Man’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ant-man_movie_image_collection

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues this summer of 2015 with ‘Ant-Man‘, which is a lesser known character and storyline than the usual big Avenger characters. This is a film that i’ve looked forward to for a few years now, because the story of ‘Ant-Man‘ and his abilities are very cool. When I had my comic book store, I actually had the first five issues of ‘Ant-Man‘ ever. I really dug those comics. Imagine how excited I was when news broke that director Edgar Wright signed on to write and direct the film.

‘The Crow’ Finds Its Director Again!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 3rd, 2014

HI everyone, Bryan Here…

crowchur

After a long hard battle, we are finally getting that ‘Crow‘ remake we have been wanting for years. You can almost hear James O’Barr screaming now, right? Yes, ‘The Crow‘ is being remade by Relativity Studios. The original came out in 1994 and was directed by Alex Proyas and starred Brandon Lee, the son of Bruce Lee, who tragically and mysteriously died on the set of this film. There has been a few sequels after it, but none have lived up to the original.

Film Review: ‘Hector and the Search For Happiness’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-Simon-Pegg

You can’t help but love Simon Pegg. His roles in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, and ‘The World’s End‘ are legendary. His work on the recent ‘Star Trek‘ films, ‘Paul‘, and in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ films have been excellent and very comical. That aside, i love seeing Pegg work on dramatic films, because not only is he one of the best comedic actors around right now, but he is also one hell of a dramatic actor, and his new film ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness‘ highlights that.

‘Ant-Man’ Begins Production and Fills Out Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

1608470801_1355278853

 

 

 

Today marks the beginning of filming for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. It has been a winding road getting to this point though. There has been a change in director and the loss of 3 cast-members due to scheduling issues because of delays. Some of us probably thought it would be a miracle of Marvel proportions if it were to ever make it to the big screen. Some of the reason for doubt stems from the fact that original director Edgar Wright had been working on bringing the 2D superhero to life since 2006 with very limited success.

A&E has a new series coming out called ‘The Returned‘ and is headed up by ‘Lost‘ show-runner Carlton Cuse. The 10-episode first season has just cast its lead, which is the beautiful and talented Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Winstead is known for playing Ramona Flowers in Edgar Wright’sScott Pilgrim vs. the World‘ film, but could be seen in Quentin Tarantino’sDeath Proof‘ and the recent prequel to ‘The Thing‘. Winstead was sought after by tons of executives and directors this pilot season and it looks like Cuse won out.

Bryan’s Top 15 Movie List of 2013!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

2013-best

And here we are, at the very end of 2013. What a year for movies. This was an amazing year for film. There were so many great independent films, documentaries, and movies that were just highly entertaining, that I’ve watched them more than five times already. As usual, as long as I’ve been doing this, my Top Movie list of the year is very different from most everyone else that has made a list. I don’t know why – well I do know, because I’m twisted and crazy. But how I base my list is a variety of factors, not ones that the Oscars base their opinions on, but rather a more humble and fun variety of factors. For example, did this movie make me stand up and slow clap, or did it make me slap the person next to me and yell ‘THAT WAS AWESOME’! It’s those kind of things. So without further delay, I present to you my TOP 15 list for 2013. Let me know if you disagree or agree, love or hate, or just want to say hi. Enjoy.
