Hi, Jana here,

 

celeb-sibling---John-Belushi

 

Normally when I hear John Belushi’s name, I smile as I remember Jake Blues from ‘The Blues Brothers‘ ordering four fried chickens with a Coke, or his turn as John Blutarsky in ‘Animal House‘ as he incites a food fight. One thing I didn’t expect to hear in association with his name is that he is the subject of an upcoming biopic.

4H UHD Review: ‘Inception’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Every once in a blue-moon, a movie comes out that feels refreshing, original, and entertains us on a certain level that we won’t soon forget. Of of those movies is ‘Inception‘, directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). As Nolan was making his Dark Knight (Batman) trilogy, he made a movie in between each sequel. One of them was this film and it truly shines out of all the rest. It brings something everyone does for half their life and makes a thrilling and smart film out of it. ‘Inception‘ involves sleeping and dreaming, but with certain technology, you can be in control of your dreams, and even connect to other people’s dreams and plant an idea in their heads that might make them change their way of thinking. That’s the point of ‘Inception’. It’s quite brilliant.

Film Review: ‘The Duff’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

the-duff

The Duff opens with a voice-over introduction by the female lead, Bianca (Mae Whitman), to the stereotypes of high school in true John Tucker Must Die or Breakfast Club style.  Special effects are used to present labels of the different types (tough girl, etc.).  With nearly the same shot composition of Jawbreaker and Juno, we see close-ups of beautiful girls as the narrator announces their qualities and then a quick admission that she was not either of them.  Enter the scary nemesis, Madison (Bella Thorne) just like Not Another Teen Movie and She’s All That.  So many other teenybopper films came to mind as I watched The Duff

Sleater Kinney Has A Badass New Music Video!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Sleater-Kinney

I’ve been a HUGE fan of Sleater-Kinney since 2000. On the old radio show in college (KJHK), we used to play their music all the time, particularly one of my favorites, “Oh!‘ off their One Beat album. This all-chick rock band is as badass as it gets in rock music. Not to mention the drummer’s name is Janet Weiss (you should get that reference). But we told you that they were releasing a new album soon, which is called ‘No Cities to Love‘, which will hit shelves on the 20th. Highly suggest you pick it up.

In a not unusual move, scheduling conflicts have cropped up on the set for ‘Freeheld‘. Zach Galifianakis was originally on tap to play the male lead in the film based on a documentary about domestic partner benefits. The furry, funny man had to step down due to other commitments, making way for Steve Carell to step into the vacated position. The docu followed the story of Laurel Hester and Stacie Andree as the pair fought to amend the Domestic Partnership Act, which would grant pension benefits to domestic partners of all New Jersey public employees. Ellen Page and Julianne Moore are under contract to play the couple.

Hillary T.’s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Review!!

Hillary T., Here…

X-Men-Days-of-Future-Past-Movie-Poster

I am a Marvel girl. I am. But after the last ensemble X-Men movie (Last Stand), I was devastated at what had become of my beloved mutant team. Then, First Class came out, which gave me a lot of hope. Then they announced Bryan Singer would return to direct the next installment. Dare I get my hopes up more? Then they shared the “Days of Future Past” storyline. I was instantly hooked. The cast started rolling in, and I got even more hopeful and well, I was really happy after the first preview. It looked good, even great.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

2001 Maniacs

This movie stars Robert Englund from the Nightmare on Elm street movies.  Based on the campy cult classic by the Godfather of gore, Herschell Gordon Lewis, and starring horror legend Robert Englund, 2001 Maniacs is a bloody comedy/spoof that audiences will love. 2001 Maniacs tells the story of a group of college students on their way to spring break. They decide to take a detour through an old southern town – and are soon in for a big surprise. The residents of Pleasant Valley insist the kids stay for their annual barbecue celebration…but instead of getting a taste of the old south, the old south gets a taste of them!

The Blair Witch Project (Blu-ray)

This bluray was released  over a month ago exclusively at BEST BUY.  If you have not picked it up yet, then you can pick Blair Witch up anywhere tomorrow.  While this bluray disc is the best Blair Witch has ever looked, it is far from being a demo in your home.  Still tons of grain and just over all sloppy.  But I believe this was the intent of the filmmakers.  To make it look as real as possible.  The sound isn’t really that great on the disc.  Those set aside, if you liked seeing this movie all those years ago, then this is a must pick up to re-live that time and the special features are pretty good.

The Exorcist: Extended Director’s Cut (Blu-Ray)

Finally.  To start out the month of Halloween, we get the hig-def transfer of the scariest movie of all time, “The Exorcist”.  You get the spider-crawl scene, the extended ending and a few other scenes that were added in that were not in the original.  I saw this at the theater last week on the big screen, and it was fantastic.  Still scary as hell.  I wish they still made films like this still.  Where we grow with a character and see them transform into something TERRIBLE.    This is a 2-dsic set with a booklet with behind the scenes photos and essays about the making of the film.  An absolute must for any collection.

Hard Candy (Blu-Ray)

This was another film that was released a while ago as a Best Buy exclusive.  This film made me sweat.  I was on the edge of my seat the entire film.  One of the most tense films I have ever seen.  If you have not seen this yet, I really do not want to give anything away, but seriously buy this film if you love uber tense movies.  What a thrill ride.  it stars Ellen Page from “Juno”.

The Human Centipede (Blu-Ray)

I saw this film a few months ago.  It really did not get a wide release in theaters.  IFC put it on demand for a couple of weeks and I got a chance to watch it.  WOW.  It is a brutal torture film in which a mad scientist/doctor makes a “Human Centipede”, by kidnapping innocent people and sewing his victims ass to mouth so they have one digestive track.  This is a film to watch with others and watch their reaction.  Much much joy.  This is a must own for all you cinephiles out there.  “During a stopover in Germany in the middle of a carefree roadtrip through Europe, two American girls find themselves alone at night when their car breaks down in the woods. Searching for help at a nearby villa, they are wooed into the clutches of a deranged retired surgeon who explains his mad scientific vision to his captives’ utter horror. They are to be the subjects of his sick lifetime fantasy: to be the first to connect people, one to the next, via their gastric system, and in doing so bring to life ‘the human centipede.”

Even worse, Dre’s feelings make an enemy of the class bully, and kung fu prodigy, Cheng. With no friends in a strange land, Dre has nowhere to turn but maintenance man Mr. Han (Jackie Chan), who is secretly a master of kung fu.

Detective Sam Spade (Humphrey Bogart) wants to find out why – and who’ll take the fall for his partner’s murder. An all-star cast (including Sydney Greenstreet, Mary Astor, Peter Lorre and Elisha Cook Jr.) joins Bogart in this crackling mystery masterwork written for the screen (from Dashiell Hammett’s novel) and directed by John Huston.

A Nightmare on Elm St. 2010 (Blu-ray)

This remake of the beloved 1980’s classic by Wes Craven gets the remake over haul and only somewhat disappoints.  You get everything you want out of the film.  Jackie Earl Haley plays Freddy and he does a good job at it and there are even some straight forward shot for shot remake scenes from the original.  But what is missing or shall I say what is NOT missing.  Listen, I do NOT want an “in my face” reason why Freddy is Freddy.  I do NOT want to know when these characters are in a dream or not until creepy shit starts happening.  And I want Freddy to be the same funny one liner Freddy, which I get but only in the end.  Some stuff was done right and some stuff was not.  Overall I still liked it, and will see another sequel if one gets made, but the original still is the best.

Supplements

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead (Blu-Ray)

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead’ is the debut feature film of Director Jordan Galland, who also penned the original screenplay, which finds the characters from Hamlet, a tip of the cap to Tom Stoppard, and a two thousand year conspiracy involving vampires and the Holy Grail.   This just sounds BADASS!  Must Get.

Secretary (Blu-Ray)

What a modern classic cult film this was.  I love the fetish world and this films explores quite a bit of that.  In an office setting no less.  A true Love Story at heart.  James Spader and Maggie Gyllenhaal star in the dark comedy Secretary. Praised as “daring, funny and quirkily erotic!” (Glenn Kenny, Premiere) and “sexy and highly stylized” (Gear magazine), Secretary is the story of Lee Holloway (Gyllenhaal), a young woman with a few strikes against her after a brief stay in a mental hospital, who accepts a secretarial position working at the law office of E. Edward Grey (Spader). The work seems normal at first, but somewhere between the typing, filing and coffee-making, Lee and her new boss cross the line of their professional relationship and enter into a Human Resources nightmare!

Splice (Blu-Ray)

I really liked this film.  It was a very different take into the realm of sci-fi and horror.  It is a bit awkward to watch, but I loved where this move took me.  I have not seen it before done.  Very good and highly recommended.  Superstar genetic engineers Clive (Adrien Brody) and Elsa (Sarah Polley) specialize in splicing DNA from different animals to create incredible new hybrids. Now they want to use human DNA in a hybrid that could revolutionize science and medicine. But when the pharmaceutical company that funds their research forbids it, Clive and Elsa secretly take their boldest experimentation underground—risking their careers by pushing the boundaries of science to serve their own curiosity and ambition. The result is Dren, an amazing, strangely beautiful creature of uncommon intelligence and an array of unexpected physical developments. At first, Dren exceeds their wildest dreams. But as she grows and learns at an accelerated rate, her existence threatens to become their worst nightmare.

Troll 2: Nilbog Edition (Blu-Ray)

Labeled as the Best Worst Film Ever.  Troll 2 does not have trolls in the entire film nor is it a sequel.  If that does not capture you to want to watch this then I do not know what will.  Disguised as friendly country folk, a pugnacious posse of people-eating trolls lures visitors to their town. But a family of four is about to discover this place is a real tourist trap…and they’re the prey! Now, the no-good gnomes must be destroyed before the family gets flambéed…and the world becomes a buffet in this feeding frenzy of fear!  A ridiculous good time.

That is it for this week.  Stay tuned for next week.

“Super” Footage from James Gunn

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2010

James Gunn has been hard at work for quite some time on his new film entitles “SUPER”.  It is in the vein of the year’s movie “Kick-Ass”.  The film has a stellar cast including: Rainn Wilson (The Office) and Ellen Page (Juno) as the main characters with Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Michael “The Rook” Rooker, Nathan Fillon (Firefly) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks).

IMDB’s plot synopsis for this movie reads “After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills.”

Now James Gunn is no stranger to the super hero genre.  He made a little film several years back which I think is one of the funniest movies out there.  It is called “The Specials” and is about the 6th or 7th best super hero team in the world.  It has an all-star cast as well with Thomas Hayden Church (Sideways & Spider-man 3) and Rob Lowe to name a few.  Gunn went on to write the revamp of Dawn of the Dead and make the ever so popular movie “Slither”.

Super looks to be an amazing film and the reviews from the early screenings are stellar.  I am looking forward to this movie.  Check out the clip of Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page below.

4K UHD Review: ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2018

THE FILM


One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally upon us with Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy/sci-fi realm in ‘Ready Player One‘, which is based on the pop-culture fandom novel from 2011 of the same name by author Ernest Cline. The novel was a best-seller and was chock-full of the 1980s and 1990s references in the form of video games, movies, TV shows, and more. in fact, every page of the book was like reading a nostalgic diary of your past childhood favorite things. ‘Ready Player One‘ takes places a few decades into the future where a simulated and very realistic virtual reality game is the main form of entertainment where people put on goggles and can be anyone or anything they want.

Blu-ray Review: Black Panther!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

THE FILM


Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

Film Review: The Beguiled!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

beguiled-trailer-37738af4-c7dd-4053-b704-a03437a0cc1d

The Civil War is rooted deep in the fibers of U.S. history, and there’s an evident fascination in both literature and film with the American lifestyle now gone with the wind. Retellings of war classics never seem to go out of style, so it’s no surprise that over forty years after the release of its 1971 predecessor starring Clint Eastwood, ‘The Beguiled’ is being reintroduced to a new generation. Comparisons to the original inevitably lingered over her shoulder, but Director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) gives the film a fresh, female perspective and garnishes it with her excellent use of lighting, smart casting and artistic framing.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

It’s hard to compete with the first ‘Poltergeist‘ film. You had Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind the scenes there with an excellent mix of straight out horror and comedy. You would be laughing at Craig T. Nelson sucking in his stomach in front of the mirror one minute, and scared to piss and back at the clown doll attacking little Robbie. It was simply perfect in every way. Some four years later, the studio decided to make a sequel since the first film did so well critically and financially, and it was called ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side‘.

Criterion Blu-ray Review: ‘Dekalog’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 2nd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

81tals1xsl-_sl1500_

THE FILM

It’s very rare that a film has such a profound effect on you that you can’t get it out of your head for days. I love discussing all movies, from the latest indie art-house film to the latest blood and guts horror fest to the animated comedies of Pixar, and even old classics from the 1930s and forward. Rarely though, does a film leave me thinking about it for days on end and make me contemplate life and myself and the decisions I have made that had me end up right here. One of those films was Claude Lanzmann’s ‘Shoah’, which put me on an emotional downward spiral for a while. It made me look at myself, us as a people, history, and what makes us tick. It’s a film that deserves its own category and awards, because there is nothing else like it and there never will be.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Me Before You’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2016

Jonathan A., here…

THE FILM

Emilia Clarke stars in this delightful adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ hit romance novel “Me Before You.”  Although this seems to have been her first time directing a feature film, Thea Sharrock proved she was more than up to the task, as this film is fluid, sincere and is simply an absolute pleasure to watch.

Epic List Of The Top 10 Road Trip Flicks!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 3rd, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

tumblr_nx5wmzgYvb1qewpgqo1_500

Summer means a lot to me, there’s baseball, which I waxed pretty poetic about in last week’s Top 10 Baseball Movies post. There’s fishing, the fourth of July, a multi-colored tongue from Otter Pops, and the all important road trip. Your trip can be a short jaunt to the lake or it can be a days long event that usually culminates in an epic destination – Wally World, anyone? Whether you trip on your own, with your friends or with your family, there’s something wonderful about having a full tank of gas, a stereo full of tunes and the open road in front of you. Depending on who you’re with it can either feel like a hostage situation or a relaxing break from the weekly drag. Most good road trips feel like a bit of both, not to mention the longing for the comfort that is your home toilet.

I’m gonna count down my top 10 movies that feature a road trip. Strap in, kick on the A/C and let the lull of the road below you relaxes your worries. This was not an easy list to winnow down to only 10 with a few honorable mentions. I left off the obvious ‘Thelma and Louise‘, they’re best friends, they kill someone and drive off a cliff. Yeah, I didn’t give you a spoiler alert there because if you haven’t seen this movie by now, you were never going to. Some road trip movies are better than others and we had differing opinions from each other making this list. So read along and tell me where we agree or disagree or what I’ve left out.

‘John Wick 2’ Rounds Out Its Cast!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

john-wick-keanu-reeves

You know you can’t wait for ‘John Wick 2‘! Keanu Reeves and the filmmakers certainly surprised us with ‘John Wick‘, which is where a man goes on a killing rampage after a bunch of jerks kill his dog and steal his car. It’s basically what we would all want to do if someone did that to us. Most people are returning for the sequel that will have Wick (Reeves) take out a bunch of bad guys again, which the filmmakers from the first film did an excellent job with their cameras and story. It was one of the best action films in a long time. Read the review HERE!

Film Review: ‘Learning to Drive’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Learning-to-Drive-Movie

Learning to Drive opens at the completion of driving instruction with Darwan Singh Tur (Sir Ben Kingsley) speaking words of wisdom and reality to his student driver.  Next we are guided through a typical day of a hardworking Indian in America.  Two jobs and a house full of relatives/friends from his village, Darwan is a stereotype of who Indians are.  I do not like stereotypes whether factual or not.  People are curvy (multi-faceted) and should not be pressed into any particular box/label.  However, in Learning to Drive, I see the Indian stereotype treated with honor and maybe even understanding.  I do not follow the Sikh religion nor do I understand it, but the worship was portrayed with reverence.

Film Review: ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 18th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

me-earl-dying-girl-1

There are very few times in life where a movie affects you in such a way that you end up recalling the entire film from time to time in life. One of those films for me is ‘E.T.‘, as I saw the movie with my parents in theaters back in the early 80s when it was released. That film really struck a chord with me as it was the first time I really connected with a character and a film. It led to all the emotions pouring out of me, and still does to this day even when I watch it for the 1,134th time. Only a handful of movies have done that to me since then, one of them being this beautiful and charming movie, ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘.

THE FILM

We are at the end of this ‘Hobbit‘ trilogy with ‘The Battle of the Five Armies‘. The last three years seem to have gone by fairly fast. It seems like yesterday when I was writing about Warner Bros. heading back to Middle Earth with the ‘Hobbit‘. I was super stoked about it, because I was such a huge fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy. I think I saw each of those films five times in the theater, owned each version that came out on DVD and Blu-ray, and went back to see them when they were re-released. I just can’t get enough of the ‘LOTR‘ films. But shortly after the announcement that we were receiving a ‘Hobbit‘ film, things started going downhill.

Podcast #51 – Golden Globes, Oscars, and ‘Tremors’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

3632_5

It’s 2015. A new year, and our first Podcast of 2015, which makes this Podcast #51. It’s been an excellent ride so far. For our 51st podcast, we were all sober and bright eyed to discuss Award season, meaning the recent Golden Globe winners and the recently announced Oscar nominations. We dive into each category, discussing snubs, surprises, deserved wins, and much much more. After the awards business, we discuss the 1990 film ‘Tremors‘ in a new segment we call “What If”, where we give you some fun trivia about the film and give a scenario of ‘What If’ ‘Tremors’ would have had different actors, a different rating, or a different director. It was a lot of fun.  We had Susan Kamyab from This Chix Flix , Adam Conway from Angelika Film Center, and Andrew Conway. It was a lot of fun to say the least. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page and TWITTER page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

I can’t believe we have made it to 50 episodes. It’s been an excellent ride so far. For our 50th podcast, we had the entire crew in the studio, which is rare. Since it’s the end of the year and Christmas is almost here, we wanted to give you all our Best and Worst List for 2014. And we’re not talking about films here. We are talking about music, songs, television episodes, interviews, Blu-rays, and more. So we hope this list entices you to see, hear, or purchase whatever film or album you have been hearing about. And it’s quite interesting that a lot of our individual lists were quite different.  We had Susan Kamyab from This Chix Flix , Adam Conway from Angelika Film Center, Gadi Elkon from Selig Film News, Gwen Reyes from FreshFictionTV, and Andrew Conway. It was a lot of fun to say the least. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page and TWITTER page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Supergirl Added To Stable Of TV Supes!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Supergirl_Vol_6_14

 

If you think about superhero television shows, or if you’re like me, you think of the dreck that was ‘Lois and Clark‘, ‘Mutant X‘, or ‘The Tick‘?  If it’s not one of those shows, then it’s probably something equally abysmal. With the resurgence of super-powered peeps making such an excellent showing at the box office – because why would they be creating so frakking many of them if they weren’t making some serious coin? So it stands to reason that the small screen is looking for new hit projects in the same vein.

Hey fanboys and girls, Jana here,

 

 

GOTHAM_CAROUSEL_DESKTOP_1400x386-carousel-1400x386

 

 

Everyone remember the hype surrounding the new prequel series ‘Gotham‘? We’ve been inundated with teasers, internet ads, and just in general talking about how awesome, or un-awesome (is that a word?) it’s going to be. I want to be hopeful, because I’m a huge fan of the bat. Love the world of Gotham City and it’s dark, iniquitous, sullen tones. I’ve always loved the Tim Burton version of the Batman films, don’t get me wrong, Nolan’s flicks were excellent in that they gave me the action I crave. But I like how the first set of movies make him a real character and not either just a 40-pack a day smoker in a cowl, or an asshole.

Arrested Development‘ has legions of fans that are still jonesing for their next hit of Bluth blood. It sounds like Netflix wants to deliver on that stat! At least that’s what we can glean from the statements made by Ted Sarandos, the chief content officer of Netflix. In an interview with USA Today, he stated that he’s positive about another season. It’s “just a matter of when”, he said.

So we’ve known for a while that there is going to be a re-make of the Marvel superhero ‘Daredevil‘. We know that Marvel has partnered with Netflix to bring us a 13-episode drama based on the comic book stories of the blind, lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen.

We’ve known for a while that Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) is going to play the eponymous Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and that Vincent D’Onofrio (‘Law and Order‘)  is going to play the juxtapositional Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. Today, we’ve gotten some more casting news. Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica from ‘True Blood‘ has been given the role of Karen Page.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

CriterionLogoCovers

After a two week vacation, The Multi-Media Men are back with the 35th episode that covers all things in the entertainment industry. We had a full house this time around with myself Bryan Kluger, Adam Conway from the Angelika Film Center, Gadi Elkon from Selig Film News, Andrew Conway, Gwen Reyes from Fresh Fiction, and Susan Kamyab from This Chix Flix. It was a lot of fun to say the least. As usual, we start off each episode with some sort of Top 3 list, and this 35th episode is no different. We decided to come up with some movies that Criterion should consider adding to their ever impressive collection. There are some excellent suggestions here along with some ideas for great bonus features. If you are unfamiliar with Criterion, check them out HERE. Basically, they are like the Neiman Marcus of home video. Criterion has the best video and audio transfers in the business and generally has the best bonus features in town. Not to mention that almost all of their films are five-star movies. So here is what we think Criterion should release in the coming year or so. Let us know  if you agree or missed anything. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information.

Hello, Jana here,

Meryl-Streep

There are a few names in Hollywood that can cherry-pick working conditions. Meryl Streep is among the very top of that list. Beginning her career in 1975 with a total of 74 projects in her resume, she has played every kind of character you can imagine. Her performances are moving, funny, realistic or greatly fantastical. No matter what film she’s in, she’s the top of my list of favorite actresses. I’m in high anticipation of what will surely be, another excellent musical performance in the film version of ‘Into The Woods‘.

Film Review: ‘Fading Gigolo’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

FADING GIGOLO

I never thought I’d see the day where Woody Allen would play a pimp who had a male prostitute played by John Turturro. Fortunately for everyone, that day has finally come, and I’m proud to say that I’m a big fan of the film ‘Fading Gigolo‘.We all know who Woody Allen is and most of us know John Turturro from a variety of acting roles he has done over the past couple of decades including Jesus Quintana (‘The Big Lebowski‘), Pete (‘O Brother Where Art Thou‘), Knish (‘Rounders‘), and of course Barton Fink. I could keep going, but you get the picture.

Here is our 32nd episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘, and we are back from a two week hiatus from covering the Dallas Film Festival.  We recorded this 32nd podcast on Easter Sunday morning in Dallas, TX, and were missing a couple of regulars. However, we were joined by Susan Kamyab of ‘This Chix Flix‘ and ‘Irving Community Television‘ this weekend and she made an excellent addition to the podcast. And since we are back from our small break, what better way to celebrate than with one of our infamous ReCast segments. We went ahead and did it. We ReCast ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘, which is one of the best films of all time. There is no way we can replace any of the actors aboard here, but we know that MTV wants to remake it and in this day and age, it is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role?

Hi, Bryan Here….

Original+Soundtrack+-+Twin+Peaks+-+LP+RECORD-262624

Death Waltz Recording Company, the record printer that is famous for re-releasing excellent horror movie soundtracks, has announced they will be releasing two separate soundtracks to David Lynch’s cult series, ‘Twin Peaks‘ and the film companion ‘Fire Walk with Me‘. There is no release date as of yet, but we do know the two releases will be two different colors. I’m completely psyched about this, as ‘Twin Peaks‘ was one of the greatest shows to ever air on television.

Film Review: ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

desolation-of-smaug-dragon

And we’ve arrived in the 2nd year of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy with ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, and let me tell you, it’s a big improvement on the last film, which was released the same time last year. First off, we don’t have to spend a half hour inside Bilbo’s home with thirteen dwarves eating, drinking, and singing songs about washing dishes and Bilbo’s unhappy attitude. In this sequel things start off fast and to the point, which is sure to excite all audiences. Still, adapting J.R.R Tolkien’s less than 300 page novel into three separate films might be a bit much, but damn if it isn’t fun and highly entertaining this time around with a giant fire breathing dragon, some epic battles, a familiar elf, and an escape from orcs that I could watch 100 times in a row and never tire of. Just like the previous films set in Middle Earth, I expect another billion dollars for Jackson and co.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Film Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Welcome back to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson‘s version of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, which covers the first six chapters of the 19 chapter book, is very faithful to the original material. Jackson has gone back to the world that made him a household name and literally translated verbatim from page to screen, which is sure to blow the minds of fans of the book. However, at its almost 3 hour run-time, ‘The Hobbit‘ feels sluggish and never seems to pick up any sort of pace.  That being said, i have no doubt this movie will make hundreds of millions of dollars before the year is over.

Bryan Reviews ‘Ruby Sparks’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 2nd, 2012

Hi. Bryan Here….

‘Ruby Saprks’ is a great follow up film from the directors of ‘Little miss Sunshine’ that is an adventure of a writer and his creative process which comes to life…literally.  Zoe Kazan wrote an exceptionally great script, and with the help of directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris, ‘Ruby Sparks’ hits every beat.

Bryan’s Top 10 Films of 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

We’re here at that time again.  The end of the year.  And thus, here is my list of my top 10 movies of 2011.  Now these are films I saw in the theatre or at home that came out in the year 2011.  I have seen several films already that won’t come out until 2012, but those will have to wait till next year at this time.  There were tons of great films that came out this year.  It was a hard year to narrow down.  I usually pick my top 10, by going through the entire list of releases throughout the entire year and then writing all the ones  really liked down.  Then the narrowing process begins.  Now my Top 10 list will probably be way different then most others you will see.  I tend to chose films for my list that I thoroughly enjoy time and time again rather than ones that might win awards at the big shows.  Without further delay here is my Top 10 films for 2011.

Hi Bryan Here….

Robert Kirkman (author of Walking Dead)  is quite busy these days with all of his comics and the excellent Walking Dead tv show on AMC.  He dedicated some of his time to the first novel for his hit Zombie series “The Walking Dead”.  This looks like it will be a prequel of sorts on how that character of the Governor rose up in power and became who we all know who he became to be.

Blu-Ray/DVD Releases for the 3rd Week of October….

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2010

Sorry, It’s a Little late today, but still on schedule.  There are some AWESOME releases this week.  Some that I have been waiting years for. Anyway – as usual – the pics and titles link over to AMAZON – where you can learn more about the film in question – and can purchase the item, which helps give a small donation to help keep this column going. Now – here we go…

Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure Edition (Bluray)

During the Vietnam War, young U.S. Captain Willard is given the assignment to hunt down and kill one of his own: Colonel Kurtz who has apparently gone insane, murdered hundreds of innocent people, and constructed a strange kingdom for himself deep in the jungle. Willard and his crew embark on a surreal river journey to find Kurtz, meeting along the way a Lieutenant- Colonel who likes to watch surfing during live combat, and Playboy bunnies dropped in by helicopter to entertain rowdy troops.

This is one of the best films about war to date.  It has an all-star cast including: Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen, Dennis Hopper, and Francis Ford Coppola as director.  It is loaded with extras.  I highly recommend this.

Supplements

  • Interviews
  • Featurettes
  • Deleted scenes
  • Lost scene
  • “Destruction of the Kurtz Compound” end credits with audio commentary by Francis Ford Coppola
  • “The Hollow Men,” video of Marlon Brando reading T.S. Eliot’s poem

  • Storyboard Gallery
  • Photo Gallery, including images from photographer Mary Ellen Mark
  • Marketing Archive

Assault Girls (Bluray)

Now I do not know much about this movie, but the synopsis makes me want to buy this and watch it.  Could be a hell of a lot of chix-ploitation fun.


Plot Synopsis: When a video-game company creates an immersive gaming environment where players wage war against gigantic sand-dwelling monsters, three gorgeous gals armed to the teeth (Meisa Kuroki, Hinako Saeki and Rinko Kikuchi) accept the challenge and jump into the virtual desert. But as they blaze their way into the game’s higher levels, they face ever-more ferocious foes. Yoshikazu Fujiki also stars in this sci-fi action flick from director Mamoru Oshii.


That just sounds AWESOME.  Will be checking this out.

Moulin Rouge (Bluray)

I remember seeing this in the theatre when it was first released and I was in AWE at the set design and all the cool songs that were re-done for this movie.  This movie was just so beautiful to watch and I am glad it has finally received the HD treatment.  So enter this fantastic world where nothing is forbidden and everything is possible and purchase this movie.

  • BD-Live

Night of the Demons (2009 Remake)  (Bluray)

This is a remake of the 1980’s horror film about a group of college kids who summon a demon at a party and kills everyone.  This remake is basically the same thing.  A group of kids go to a Halloween party, only to have to face down a group of demons.  If you like Demon movies and tons of gore and boobies, then this is a must own.  I would also purchase the original movie as well.  Just in time for Halloween.

Supplements

  • Writer/director commentary
  • Cast and crew interviews
  • Behind-the-scenes footage

Predators (Bluray)

A mercenary (Adrien Brody) reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers—mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members—human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.

I remember anticipating this film and that Robert Rodriguez was a major producer on this.  This a re-vamp of the original film which starred Arnold, but instead of a Predator coming to Earth, humans go to the Predator planet.  Worth a look and a must have for the fans of the franchise.  I still miss VENTURA in his role.

Supplements

  • Commentary by producer Robert Rodriguez and director Nimród Antal
  • Motion Comics: “Moments of Extraction” – Robert Rodriguez presents exclusive prequel vignettes voiced by the cast of Predators. Witness the secret adventures that turned our world’s most ruthless killers into the ultimate Predator prey (Isabelle, Mombasa, “Crucified”)

Psycho: 50th Anniversary Edition (Bluray)

Alfred Hitchock’s masterpiece, “Psycho” finally gets the HD treatment.  This is hands down one of the scariest films of all time.  They built a ride after this film.  This film still scares me and Anthony Perkins is BRILLIANT.

Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), the ill-fated traveler whose journey ends in the notorious “shower scene.” First a private detective, then Marion’s sister (Ver Miles) searches for her, the horror and the suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.

This is a must own for any collection.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 35th Anniversary Edition (Bluray)

One of the greatest cult films of all time gets the HD treatment.  I remember seeing this film when I was about 10 years old and i was forever warped.  Excellent music and young stars such as: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and Meatloaf make this film what it is…..AMAZING.  They still today all over the country show midnight screenings of this film with audience participation where you can throw stuff at the screen and see actors act out the movie live in front of the screen in synch with the film.  Love this film.

‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ is an “erotic nightmare beyond any measure.” Relive Richard O’Brien’s sinfully twisted salute to horror, sci-fi, B-movies and rock music – A “sensual daydream to treasure forever” – starring Tim Curry (in his classic gender-bending performance), Barry Bostwick, and Oscar®-winner Susan Sarandon. Do the “Time Warp” and sing “Hot Patootie” with Meatloaf again…and again…and again. Pull up a slab and let the madness begin!

Seven Samurai: Criterion Collection (Bluray)

One of the greatest films of all time by Akira Kurosawa is about a Japanese farming village, constantly besieged and pillaged by an army of bandits, recruits seven independent samurai to defend it.  This is phenomenal and am very happy to purchase this title AGAIN to get it on BLURAY.  A MUST OWN.

One of the better bands of this decade will be opening up for Dave Matthews Band on September 11 at Coca Cola Starplex or now known as Super Pages.com Center.  (Fuck I hate that name.)  If you have not heard Black Joe Lewis, head HERE and listen and get their album.  See them if you get a chance.

Evil Dead Blu-Ray Review

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 9th, 2010

The Movie: The epic legendary film that spawned Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness and gave the world Bruce “Man-God” Campbell.  Riddled with humor, genuine scary moments, and buckets upon buckets of blood and gore bring you this amazing achievement in movie making.  This marks the directorial debut of Sam Raimi.  Known to most as the director of the Spider-Man movies.


This movie was made on a budget that would equal the coffee supply on a James Cameron movie for one day.  It was made with friends and family over the matter of twelve weeks and sometimes only having a crew of five people and that was including actors.  Sam’s creative use of the camera and genuine talent for terror blasted this film to cult status quickly.


The story you have seen and heard a million times before.  Group of college kids got to a remote cabin in the woods for a weekend for some fun and romance and they unearth a horrible EVIL that possesses the living into flesh eating cannibals who can fly.  The only way to kill one of these undead people is by total dismemberment.


Our hero of the movie is not your typical hero.  He is a man played by Bruce Campbell named Ashley Williams who works at S-Mart in the housewares section.  Just a regular guy who basically gets tortured throughout the movie.


Bruce Campbell and his chin are fantastic throughout this film and the two that followed.  He brings his charm and one liners that have stood the test of time and will continue to do so.


Evil Dead deserves the most consideration and adoration.  Not only because it was made by friends on a cheap budget, but for how creative everyone was with what they had and how it is a genuine awesome film in every way and still continues to be one of the scariest films and goriest films of all time.


The Packaging: Brought to you by Anchor Bay in this Limited Edition bluray/dvd 2-disc set, the bluray is on BD50 and the second disc has all of the special features.  Once at the great full motion menu screen you can choose between two aspect ratios.  1.33:1 and 1.85:1.  One is enhanced and one is not.  The enhanced one, well, enhances the original copy so it is not so shaky.  But you know the shakiness of it all makes it that much better.


The Picture and Sound: This is by far the best copy of this movie I have ever seen and heard and believe me there has been tons of releases of this movie.  The blacks are incredibly deep and accurate and shadows are better than expected.  There is still grain but by no means does it take away from the picture itself and it adds to the gritty cinematic experience.  There is excellent saturation in color throughout the film and this is a prime example of how HD transfers should be.  I’m speaking to you “Asshole” George Lucas.  The vocals are beautifully precise and clear and never overwhelmed by stinging loud pops or action scenes.  The off screen atmospheric sounds are astounding and gives the film it’s frightening presence.  For fans of this film, this truly is the ultimate edition to own.  Again, it has never sounded or looked this great.


The Extras: Anchor Bay releases a 2nd disc of features that could be found on all the previous discs before.  Sad I know, but this tells me that this is not the final all Ultimate Edition of Evil Dead we will see.  Quite a bit of fun in these extras.

The only thing new on here is on the blu ray disc which has new commentary with Bruce Campbell, Sam Raimi, and Rob Tapert which is exclusive to this bluray release.  Now if you have not heard Bruce Campbell commentary before, his commentaries on movies are legendary.  They are roll on the floor laugh out loud funny.  It is a highly informative track that covers funny anecdotes and the horrors of making this film over four years.  I will say this is not the funniest commentary I have heard for it, but it is worth it.

A 54 minute documentary of interviews of some of the cast and other filmmakers of the horror genre weigh in on their love for the movie.  It is called “One by One We Will Take You: The Untold Saga of The Evil Dead”.  You will see some very cool behind the scenes acting and flubs, the history of making the movie, and the reaction to the movie upon release.

Next is “The Evil Dead: Treasures from the Cutting Room Floor” which is an hour long of deleted scenes and alternate takes which some I have never seen before.  some really cool gory stuff in here.  A must watch.

Then onto “The Ladies of the Dead Meet Bruce Campbell” which is where Bruce sits down with the three ladies of the film in present time and discuss the making of the movie.  Tons of hilarious anecdotes and confessions are made here.  Very entertaining. This runs about 30 minutes.

Next is “Discovering The Evil Dead” which is a cool feature that tells in 13 minutes how this movie made history and went on to success.

Next up is the 20 minute “Unconventional” which has the stars joined by Rob Tapert and Ted Raimi now and shows them discussing their insights and careers in the horror genre.  Really great watch.

The 12 minute “At the Drive-In” extra shows the entire cast at an outdoor screening of Evil Dead in Chicago giving away dvds to fans who answer trivia.  Pretty funny.

This 30 minute “Reunion Panel” is an extension of the previous extra which is basically a Q&A session.  Great great stuff here.

This short two minute feature entitled “The Book of the Dead: The Other Pages” shows Ash looking through the entire book and seeing every page.  Really creepy and cool artwork you have never seen.

An even shorter 1 minute make up test is shown.

Trailers of the film.


This is a must own for any fan of the horror genre or Bruce Campbell fan.  This bluray looks tip top and I am looking forward to showing friends this after midnight.
