Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2018

Who would have thought that some 22 years later, we would still be getting ‘Mission: Impossible‘ films with Tom Cruise as the go-to guy in saving the world time and time again?  I definitely didn’t expect this, but I’m thrilled Tom Cruise and company continue to make these electrifying films that seem to up the ante and get better with each installment. Tom Cruise is 56 years old, which is 5 years older than Wilford Brimley was in the movie ‘Cocoon‘. Let that sit with you for a minute. What I’m trying to say is that Cruise doesn’t look nor does he act like a 56-year-old man. Instead, he looks and acts like a 25-year-old youngster with a death wish and penchant for the extreme and I believe every second of it, especially in this sixth film ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout‘.

4K UHD Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2018

 

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Dan Moran)

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal GadotBen AffleckJason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

Hey guys, Jana here,

amber_heard_mera_split-696x392

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Zack Snyder has placed J.K. Simmons in the middle of another superhero world, this time making him Gotham City police commissioner Gordon in his upcoming ‘The Justice League‘. This is the same man that anchored Sam Raimi’sSpider-Man‘ at the Daily Planet as J. Jonah Jameson beginning in 2002 and running through three films before the property was rebooted.

Ironically, just last week Simmons stated that he’s open to playing Jameson again in the latest MCU reboot of ‘Spider-Man‘ that is starring Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya.

Film Review: ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 11th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Henry-Cavill-Armie-Hammer-Alicia-Vikander-in-The-Man-From-UNCLE-2015-movie

The latest Hollywood remake to hit theaters is the hit tv show from the mid-60’s ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘, which lasted four seasons and was partially developed by Ian Fleming just as the James Bond franchise was taking off. If you were alive during the mid-60s, you would have known that this ‘U.N.C.L.E.‘ television series was one of the best things on tv at the time, as it centered on an American spy and a Russian spy, working together to take out the bad guys in a very 007 kind of way.

Warner Brothers and DC Comics had the con all to themselves as Marvel skipped this year due to not having enough current projects close enough to completion to show off or warrant a big panel gathering. So the Warner Bros. panel was a standing room only crowd and their anticipation paid off as two big trailers debuted for the fans: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Suicide Squad‘ played to roaring approval.

Marvel Entertainment now has a full fledged rival with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Warner Bros. and DC Comics has just announced all of its superhero films through 2020, plus a few Lego films and new ‘Harry Potter‘ movies.

Well it looks like Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. has an official title for the new Batman/Superman movie, which will be called ‘Dawn of Justice‘. I bet that means Dawn of the ‘Justice League‘, which Warner Bros. has been planning for quite sometime now. The film is set to open up on may 6th, 2016 and production has officially begun.

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

Film Review: ‘Man of Steel’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

man-of-steel-theme

Did we need another Superman origin story to grace our theaters just seven years after Bryan Singer’s attempt at ‘Superman Returns‘? While that particular film wasn’t so much a reboot as it was a sequel to the original ‘Superman 2‘, and its failure in its characters and story, maybe it was time to forget that ‘Superman Returns‘ existed and start from scratch. And with the super success of Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy and Marvel’s Avenger’s films, DC and Warner Bros. might want to take the same road to a Justice League film starting with ‘Man of Steel‘.

Needless to say, DC and Warner have been very tight lipped about anything ‘Justice League‘, as they are keeping the focus on their upcoming Superman film ‘Man of Steel‘, which we hear is the best movie of the year.

Check Out the ‘Man of Steel’ Poster!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 4th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 This ‘Man of Steel’ poster certainly raises a ton of questions.  It definitely looks good, but is very strange.  Here we see Henry Cavill as Superman being escorted by military personell in handcuffs.  Is Supes a bad guy?  How is this possible?  Superman is invulnerable to pretty much anything and could fly away and break those handcuffs, and if the military guys try and shoot him, you know the bullets would just bounce right off.  But who knows?

‘Man of Steel’ Will be 3D!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

The upcoming Superman film, ‘Man of Steel’ has jest been given the go ahead to be released in 3D.  Smart movie, since 3D ticket prices are significantly higher than normal movie ticket prices.  And with these big epic superhero films, they all want to milk every last penny .  Since Avengers (was in 3D) made over $1 billion and Dark Knight Rises (not in 3D) did not so easily, I think all studios want the extra cash.  Like I said, it’s smart, but not necessarily a great move.  Out of the 100 or so films I have seen in 3D, only two or three of them really made a difference being in 3D.  I doubt this one will as well.  However, if you are a fan of the format, then this should excite you.

The part that was made famous by Marlon Brando in the Richard Donner 1978 original Superman film might get played by Russell Crowe.  We are of course talking about Superman’s real Kryptonian father, Jor-El.  Nothing is set in stone yet, but talks are happening and this would be a huge step in the right direction for this film I think.
