Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

edgar-ramirez-star-trek-2

We reported earlier last week that Gerard Butler (‘300‘) suddenly dropped out of the remake of ‘Point Break‘, where he was set to play Bodhi, who was played by Patrick Swayze in the original film. Now it seems they had a second option who is the amazing Edgar Ramirez. Ericson Core will be directing from a script from Kurt Wimmer.

Gerard Butler Drops Out of ‘Point Break’ Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on May 7th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

gerard-butler-photo-16

Gerard Butler has moved back onto my ‘Oh, I love him’ list. Butler took up permanent residence on that list from the time I saw his chiseled, gorgeous features in ‘300‘. Then I elevated him to crazy heights after I saw his turn as Phantom and heard a gorgeous voice. Then the love affair came to an unfortunate fork in the road when I learned the horrible truth that Butler planned to take a role that Patrick Swayze made his own as Bodhi  in ‘Point Break‘. Luke Bracey is still set to play FBI agent Johnny Utah originally brought to life by a post Wyld Stallyns Keanu Reeves.

Gerard Butler Joins ‘Point Break’ Remake!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 9th, 2014

Jana B. , Here…

Point-Break1

It pains me every time I hear of an existing movie being bastardized with a revamp. The newest title to head to the remake guillotine is 1991’s ‘Point Break‘. I will never be a fan of twisting a fantastic movie from my childhood into drivel, reflecting the current time frame. ‘Point Break‘ adds salt to the remake wound, but also and more importantly, the Patrick Swayze wound. It’s like Hollywood is telling us anything Swayze did was crap. It’s a shorter list to name the movies the remake fairies DON’T have their meat hooks into.

Hi, Bryan Here….

olympus_has_fallen

Here is the new 1st trailer for ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘, which looks pretty intense. We have talked about this movie before and marks one of several films dealing with an elite team taking down terrorists at the White House.  Antoine Fuqua will  be directing the film, which he is known for making ‘Training Day‘. The trailer itself looks good and stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo,  and Rick Yune.  Hell of a cast if you ask me.

Hi Bryan Here….

Boomstick Comics sat down with Leonidas himself, Gerard Butler, to talk about his latest film ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ which is the true story on the the life of Sam Childers.  Butler plays Childers in the film perfectly.  The charming and hilarious Butler talks about how he prepared for his role as Sam Childers and what it was like working on the set.  he also gives us a little hint of some of his upcoming films including a short film directed by Brett Ratner where Butler plays two foul-mouthed leprechaun brothers.  He gives us one of his lines in character.  It was pure magic and hysterical.  Enjoy.  You might recognize Gerard from ‘300’, ”, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, and ‘Gamer’.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Geostorm’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2018

THE FILM


Natural disaster films will always have a special place in my heart. Most of the time, they are over-the-top, ridiculous, and never make a lick of sense. Still, there is something entertaining in watching giant cities fall due to an alien invasion, a giant lizard, or is with the case of ‘Geostorm‘, extreme weather. No matter what the premise, these films usually have the same intentions and plot structure, which usually involves one hero guy to save the day, millions of casualties, hilarious one-liners, and enough insane plot tangents that would cause you to have a headache.

The robbery crew plans to rob the Federal Reserve Bank in downtown Los Angeles in this movie. Will there be twists? Will there be turns? Will there be people on the “inside”?

‘Geostorm’ is Coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

You know you’re gonna want ‘Geostorm‘ on Blu-ray to watch every single detailed death, brought upon by hardcore weather. It’s basically ‘Independence Day‘, but with weather instead of aliens. Who doesn’t want to see that? The Blu-ray comes out January 23rd, but you can watch it digitally on January 16th. There will be behind the scenes extras, visual effects, and more included here too. Dolby Atmos sound is also included, which is damn good for this type of movie. Below are the full details for the release.

Film Review #2: Spider-Man: Homecoming!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a really good “Marvel” (too lazy to explain all the Sony stuff) movie that is hopefully the breath of fresh air the MCU needs. It had much smaller stakes, much more realized supporting cast and World that they operated in, a good villain that made sense, and a finale that didn’t turn into a $45million CGI punching. If the future of the solo Marvel films is going to be smaller universe conflicts that are more narrowly focused like this and Ant-Man? I am here for it. Leave space to Guardians & Thor, the end of the World to the Avengers, and weird dimensions to Doctor Strange. Give me low level criminals that Spider-Man has to fight before a math test to break those huge films up any day of the week.

The New GEOSTORM Trailer is Insanely Ridiculous!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Geostorm is a new movie coming out from Warner Bros. that looks like every disaster movie mixed in with a presidential kidnapping with King Leonidas from 300, spartan kicking the weather down on Earth from his space station. I’m not kidding. This will either be the worst movie ever made or the best movie ever made. There will be no middle ground here.

The ‘GeoStorm’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 1.53.42 PM

.In what looks to be the absolute WORST film of the last five years, ‘GEOSTORM‘ finally has a trailer.What is ‘GeoStorm‘ exactly? First off, let me just say that this film was supposed to come out a couple of years ago, but keeps getting pushed back – for obvious reasons. Mainly because, it looks like a giant SHIT-STORM of Epic proportions. This film is directed by Dean Devlin who really hasn’t done a directing gig, but rather produced the ‘Independence Day‘ films. So take that information and replace alien invasions with giant tornados, tsunamis, and snowballs the size of Mt. Rushmore hurling into skyscrapers.

Getting Deep with ‘Gods of Egypt’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Jennifer S., here….

gods-of-egypt-1

Firstly, this is my first real blog post; inspired by the fact that I finally got to view Gods of Egypt.  This was, like many Egyptian Mythology based movies were, a movie that I was looking forward to finally viewing.  I’m uncertain as to why I decided this was the topic I wanted to delve back into writing for, but here it is.  I feel two ways about it.  I’m going to express initially that I enjoyed it from an objective standpoint, it was fun and colorful and full of some interesting effect that got them right as often as they got them wrong… Giant Heads… #BobbleGods.  Now I’m going to express my displeasure, as anyone who has a passing interest in actual mythology realizes, it’s terrible.  The story is anyway, but the plotline is okay… and personally, I feel the message was all wrong about the afterworld.

Film Review: ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’!!

by Janet White on Oct 21st, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

keeping-up-jones-gaffneys

 

Everyone gets suspicious when new neighbors move into the neighborhood. However, when the new neighbors, Tim and Natalie Jones (Jon Hamm and Gal Gadot), are super hot, then what? Sweet suburban couple, Jeff and Karen Gaffney (Zach Galifianakis and Isla Fisher), is immediately fascinated. Can you blame them? The Gaffneys’ lives are quite mundane despite the fact that their children are away at camp. The Joneses are chic, publicly affectionate, and suspiciously nice. The Gaffneys will never be the same again. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Gods of Egypt’!!

by Janet White on Feb 26th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Gods of Egypt - Sphinx

Hot muscled men in shining, defining armor, beautiful women wrapped in silks and armor for the menfolk, and mythology.  Sounds like the makings of greatness, right?  Well, no.  Gods of Egypt opens in a fast push in across Egypt.  Suddenly, Egypt is abruptly ripped apart by war obsessed and power hungry, Set (Gerard Butler).  With his father Osiris (Bryan Brown) and mother Isis (Rachael Blake) deceased, Horus (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) has a journey ahead of him if he hopes to regain his kingdom.

Hey guys, Jana here,

6-lackluster-character-posters-for-alex-proyas-gods-of-egypt

The first look at ‘Gods of Egypt‘ shows us a film that will have it all! Gods, men, action, violence, unlikely pairings and dramatic pauses for witty phrases. Gerard Butler looks amazing, but he’s one angered SOB in this trailer and I can’t wait to see the film! The trailer will have to tide us over though until it hits theaters in February of 2016, just a few short months away!!!

Check Out The ‘London Has Fallen’ Trailer!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 5th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

London-Has-Fallen-New-Banner-Poster-1

If there’s one thing this girl loves than anything else in a film, it’s crazily violent killing, explosions as far as the eye can see and completely preposterous settings that a character shouldn’t survive, but they always do! Basically, I love crappy 80’s action movies. Since I’ve seen most of those, I’m beyond excited for ‘London Has Fallen‘. Add to that a great cast consisting of Morgan Freeman, Gerard Butler, Angela Bassett and Aaron Eckhart and I’m going to be happy.

‘London Has Fallen’ Trailer Is Here!

Hey guys, Jana here,

The sequel to 2013’s ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘ is carrying over most of the original cast but not the director. Antoine Fuqua directed the first to success but stepped back from ‘London Has Fallen‘ because he didn’t like the script and Babak Najafi. The film doesn’t release until January of 2016 but Gramercy Pictures has given us a teaser trailer to keep us excited until then.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Phantom

Hollywood continuously proves the theory that projects travel in pairs. It may not be a widely known theory, in fact, I just created it, but that doesn’t mean i don’t have great conviction for the truth it represents. The topic in a dual role right now is ‘Phantom of the Opera‘, the novel from Gaston Leroux first published in 1909. Phantom, of course tells the story of the angelically voiced Christine who is the subject of the phantom’s obsessive thoughts. She loves Raoul, Raoul loves her, the phantom gets jealous. There are many nuances in the book, I’ve left out, there are many nuances in the cliff’s notes version I’ve left out, but none of that will matter if you watch the proposed TV series written by Tony Krantz.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 18th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

300-rise-of-an-empire-blu-ray-cover-69

THE FILM

You would think that by the look of ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘, the sequel to the 2006 hit film ’300′, director Zack Snyder had returned to make this film. Well, you’d be wrong as Noam Murro directed this, making this film his first feature film. But don’t worry, Snyder seemed to have a heavy hand and watchful eye over this film, as his handprints are all over this from his screenplay to the camerawork. It’s all here again in this prequel, side story, and sequel that features a lot of the same characters from the original. ’300′ cost $65 million to make back in 2006 and was largely made in front of a green screen. That film grossed over $457 million dollars.

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!

Luke Bracey Joins Cast of ‘Point Break’ Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 26th, 2014

Jana B. here,

Luke Bracey

 Alcon Entertainment, the company behind the remake of yet another Patrick Swayze movie, and movie I grew up with. Both are treasonous acts and I really hoped the ‘Point Break‘ remake would lose steam and remain untouched. Sadly, that is not the case.  Gerard Butler was previously announced to star as Bodhi, Swayze’s original part. We now have a new face for Johnny Utah, the role originated by Keanu Reeves. Luke Bracey (‘G.I. Joe Retaliation‘ and ‘Monte Carlo‘) has been announced as the newest cast member.

And actors Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, and Morgan Freeman have all signed on for the sequel, which is called ‘London Has Fallen‘. Angela Basset and Radha Mitchell will also reprise their roles.

The Top 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

085 - Evil Ed

I love making lists. Grocery lists. Bucket lists. Holiday lists. Favorite movie lists. Favorite VAMPIRE movie lists. I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? This is MY list of the top 20 Vampire movies ever made. Why did I point out that it was MY list? Easy. So you read this knowing it wasn’t an Academy vote that got a movie on this list. No one paid me to promote their movie. However, I’m NOT against this, just to be clear. Why spend time putting movies in a list? Maybe it satisfies some Freudian lack of paternal affection I suffered as a child. But the real answer is, “Why wouldn’t I make a list as awesome as this?”

Hi, Bryan Here…

url

In a fun marketing campaign for the upcoming thriller ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘, the studio is looking for “skilled professionals” to escort and check out the scene at the red carpet to make sure everything is ‘safe’ for the characters and actors.  They are billing it as they are looking for a task force of special agents to attend the world premiere of the film.  All you have to do is full out a bit of information, and hope that you are picked to attend.  You could possible meet Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, or Morgan Freeman.

Hi, Bryan Here….

I first heard about this film earlier this year when Gerard Butler told me that he was going to play a foul-mouthed leprechaun, and that one of his lines was, “I’m going to crawl up your mother’s cunt and start a fire.”  That instantly put this film at the top of my list.  This film has about a dozen writers and a dozen directors, and looks to be a sort sketch comedy film, but who knows? I can’t tell what this will be about.  But one thing is for sure, it looks fucking hilarious and has an AMAZING cast including, Sean William Scott, Halle Berry, Naomi Watts, Christopher Mintz Plasse (McLovin), Chloe Moretz, Liev Shreiber, Terrence Howard, Gerard Butler, Kate Winslet, Elizabeth Banks, Hugh Jackman, Kristen Bell, Emma Stone, Anna Faris, Richard Gere, Parick Warburton, Justin Long, Uma Thurman, Kate Bosworth, Kieran Culkin, Jack McBrayer, and much much more.

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Machine Gun Preacher’ is one intense film.  It’s not for the faint of heart or for someone looking for a feel good movie.  This film is not only to entertain, but is to educate people on what is going on in Africa and from what the real ‘Machine Gun Preacher’, Sam Childers constantly says, this film is to show people that God exists.  The film itself is  really good.  I know FedMex disagrees with me, but I did genuinely enjoy the film.  I thought Gerard Butler and Michelle Monaghan played the Childers family magnificently.  Monaghan especially.  I think she deserves an award for her role in this film.  I think this film should be seen by all.  Not only because of the good acting and great filmmaking, but to educate people on the real problem going on in the Sudan.  ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ is an exceptional film.

FedMex Reviews ‘Machine Gun Preacher’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Machine Gun Preacher.  Unfortunately, here’s what I have to say about this film….

The audience clapped at the end of the screening.  Overall, it would appear that people were receptive to the portrayal of Sam Childers’ story on the big screen.  The story itself may be quite compelling, but unfortunately, it did not translate well onto the big screen.
