Hollywood has found their New ‘Ben-Hur’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 16th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ben-hur-8

We have been talking about the ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake for a while here at Boomstick HQ, and now we have heard a big piece of information on casting. First, let’s go over what we already know. We do know that MGM and Paramount have teamed up to make a big budget ‘Ben-Hur‘ remake with director Timur Bekmambetov (Night Watch, Day Watch, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) to helm the film. We also reported  earlier last week that Morgan Freeman was cast in the film. He will play Ildarin, the man who teaches the slave Ben-Hur to become the big bad chariot racer he turns out to be. And for a while, we were hearing that studio execs were putting out the offer to Tom Hiddleston (Loki from ‘The Avengers‘). But that’s not the case now.

I’ve got an “INCREDIBLE” update for you!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Incredibles‘ are making a comeback and Disney released character portraits in the most trendy, pop culture-ish way possible, as selfies matched with their artistic counter-part. Google’s Arts and Culture app has been the new driving force powering social media and everyone is doing it. I even tried to get a match on my dog, Duke, aka John Wayne, but there’s not recognition for pets, yet. Along with the images of the voice actors, we see stylized artwork of their on-screen persona, and it’s awesome to see anything coming from Disney Pixar about the upcoming sequel. But that’s not all they’ve given us. We get four new images, but we also get some plot details!

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Favorite Movies of 2017!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 27th, 2017

Was 2017 a great year for movies? Of course it was. There were some excellent films to be released in 2017. There were also some bad ones for sure, but the focus on this article are some of the Best films that stuck with me long after viewing. Most people will give you their Top 10 list, but this is no Top 10, because there are just so many movies that I loved and feel passionate about, that I find it difficult and unpleasing to rank them.

Instead, these are my favorite movies of 2017, which I hope you’ve seen already. If you haven’t yet, you’re in for a real treat and I can’t wait for you to see them. Some of these films are still in theaters, while some are on Netflix, 4K UHD, and Blu-ray, so you’ll be able to quickly see any of these if you haven’t. I watched over 270 movies that were released in 2017 and these are my absolute favorites. I hope you get to see all of these, because I know you’ll love them. In no particular order…..

Alan Ball has a new show coming out on HBO, meaning we should all pay attention to this. The new show is called ‘Here and Now‘ and stars Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins. If you don’t remember who Alan Ball is, he wrote a great film called ‘American Beauty‘, which won a ton of awards. He then went on to create ‘Six Feet Under‘ and ‘True Blood‘ for HBO. We’ve all been waiting patiently since then for him to come back to work on a new HBO series.

Hey guys, Jana here,

So we’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to ever get another Incredibles movie and Pixar has finally granted our wish. The film isn’t slated to debut until June 15, 2018 we couldn’t expect much footage to be shared yet. What we do have is a teaser that is less than 60 seconds, but shows us that we’re at the same time-frame the original film ended. Either that or Jack-Jack just isn’t going to age, but John Lasseter revealed that the second film “starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on”. Read the rest of this entry »



Blu-ray Review: The Big Sick!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Film portion is written by Beka Perlstein:

If The Big Sick isn’t on your must see movie list, do yourself a favor and rewrite the list. This film is the real life love story of how actor/comedian Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley) met his girlfriend and (spoiler alert) now wife, Emily Gordon. It’s not another Fault in Our Stars or Me Before You, it’s so much more than a love sick story. Behind the romantic comedy model is a story about a Pakistani immigrant who is struggling with identity, relationships, family, career and religion. To put it simply- he’s just trying to figure out this thing we call life.

Some people love his films. Some hate his films. No matter which side of the spectrum you’re on, you have to agree that every one of Terrence Malick’s films look exquisitely beautiful. With movies like ‘Tree of Life‘, ‘Knight of Cups‘, ‘The Thin Red Line‘, ‘Badlands‘, and ‘Days of Heaven‘, you can’t help but become entranced in the story, characters, and visual spectacle of Malick’s filmmaking process. His past few films have mostly shown a variety of characters who rarely say anything on screen, but instead narrate the movie as it goes along, giving a better visual masterpiece of cinema than a dialogue driven movie.

The official plan to release the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer this coming Monday, but some dude with a camera phone spoiled those plans and put their shaky, grainy version with Portuguese subtitles out into the interwebs.  Zack Snyder reacted by giving the fans what we want, a peek at the trailer.

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‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Director Zack Snyder took to his TWITTER account and released the first photo of the new Batmobile and Ben Affleck as Batman. The monochrome image has Affleck in the batsuit with new Batmobile as he looks menacing. I have to say, it looks good. Enjoy. The Batman-Superman film will be released May 6th, 2016.

Suzanne Reviews ‘Won’t Back Down’!!!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Educational reform is a difficult enough subject for policymakers to tackle. Nothing is black and white, no one is completely to blame or completely self-interested, and there are a tremendous number of problems and an infinite number of solutions. So in approaching a movie about the plight of public education today, it would be nice to see the subject treated with the nuance appropriate to actually reform the system. Unfortunately, Won’t Back Down misses this nuance and focuses on creating a good vs. evil environment with two sides that don’t work together to find a solution. Fine, it’s a movie – except this is a subject that requires some thought, and so should this movie.

Hi Bryan Here…

Hi ladies and gents.  Sorry this is a tad bid late from last week, but rest assured this week is on time and should be from now on.  Tons of great releases these past couple of weeks.  A few are exclusive only to Best Buy and I believe one or two on the list made my top 10 list of films of 2010.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!

Film Review: ‘Rampage’!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 11th, 2018

There really isn’t any point in denying that Dwayne The Rock Johnson is the biggest movie star in Hollywood right now, but he might also be the best. Nobody, except early Will Smith, can star in, sell, and market a movie the way he can. His power to entertain audiences with ridiculous premises is undeniable. Rampage is stupid, big, and insane, but it’s also obnoxiously entertaining and a joy to watch.

Phantom Thread is the only regret I have but it doesn’t come out until mid-January and I like to finish my list before first week of January ends. A few special awards before my top 12.

Meet your New ‘Star Trek’ Captain!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-07 at 11.14.09 AM

It’s beyond me that there hasn’t been a ‘Star Trek‘ series in more than a decade. Even with all of the recent films, it would seem fitting to have a new series. I know, CBS has said they are doing a new series called ‘Star Trek: Discovery‘, which has been in and out of being made, but it looks like it’s gaining steam now – FINALLY! There is a new captain that will be played by Jason Isaacs.

WITNESS ME!!! Varèse Sarabande Records is Re-Releasing the original trilogy of the ‘Mad Max‘ films on vinyl in a 3-LP set.

For those of you who love the original ‘Mad Max‘ soundtracks, this set will sure make it a lovely day for you. Below is all the information about the releases. Plus, you’ll get some Tina Turner greatness here. Note: There are only 2,000 copies that will be available, so act fast.

Get ready to enjoy an animated movie in a way we’ve never enjoyed one before. Very R-Rated and not at all appropriate for kids. Ladies, check your tampons at the door because this is the red band trailer for ‘Sausage Party‘. A raunchy, hilarious look at the food we eat every day and this chick loves what she sees!
