Janet’s Film Review of ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 5th, 2014

Periodically covering the land, homes, vehicles, indoor counters, and tables inside locked up homes are dust storms, more massive than those in Dune and The Mummy.  The viewer physically feels the force of the dust wall as the sound rocks their seats and chests.  The people cannot see or breathe.  The air has become 80% nitrogen and rising, slightly north of our current healthy air at 78% nitrogen.  Strange?  Yes.  A loud boom shakes the viewer, a drone flies barely above a truck, far below avoiding radar.  Odd?  Yes.  But signs of the end of the planet Earth?  The general public doesn’t know it, but I guess it is a lot like that frog sitting in a pot of water being brought slowly to a boil.  The frog will sit there and slowly cook itself.  Well, not on Cooper’s watch.

Film Review: ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

interstellar-11

It’s obvious with ‘Interstellar‘ that Stanley Kubrick’s2001: A Space Odyssey‘ is Christopher Nolan’s favorite film, which is no secret if you’ve seen interviews with the ‘Dark Knight‘ director. Armed with a core plot that all life on Earth will one day soon need to find a new planet to live on to survive, ‘Interstellar‘ dares to define a new meaning to the term science-fiction. This visually stunning movie is a gift to watch on the big screen, particularly in IMAX, and tries so hard to deliver on both the science fiction aspects of space as well as our complex human emotions. With a film that has so much going for it in it’s near three-hour run time, and so many big set pieces and theories, there are things that are bound to stick the landing, and other things that are destined to fall flat.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Worm_Hole

Well, I guess Spielberg won’t be directing ‘Interstellar‘ now.  Since Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy his behind him now, it seems he has found his next film.  The movie in question is a mega sci-fi epic titled ‘Interstellar‘, which we hear he is in talks to direct and produce.  The story centers on a group of explorers who travel through a wormhole to other times and dimensions.  At one point, Steven Spielberg was attached to direct, but now it is unknown if he will take on a producer credit only.

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘. Each film will come with HDR as well, meaning a richer and deeper looking image for each movie. Each film will feature extras, the standard Blu-ray Disc, and Digital Copies of each movie. The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

Film Review: ‘[The Dark Tower]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 5th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

 

From the warped, creative mind of Stephen King comes a story of the oldest of battles, good versus evil. The master of the weird provided eight books in The Dark Tower series for Nikolaj Arcel, the director, to mold and shape for our viewing pleasure. Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), a seemingly typical kid, awakes from slumber with his walls and the ground shaking. Natural disaster? No, because it happens far too often. Visions plague Jake’s and the earthquakes are the result, but why? What is it about Jake? He will journey far (and I mean FAR) to discover the truth. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m so excited for this. Warner Bros. has partnered with HBO and is releasing the first ever 4K UHD with HDR and Dolby Atmos when it comes to television box sets. I’m of course talking about the highly acclaimed and beloved West World Season One. Yes, this marks the first time a television series will be released on the format and what better way than with this epic series from HBO. Expect it on November 7th of this year with all 10 episodes in glorious HDR 4K and Dolby Atmos sound. There will also be a ton of bonus features too, which are listed out below. I can’t wait, because this might be the BEST TV release of the year. Now we need to get Game of Thrones in 4K.

Film Review: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’!!

by Janet White on Apr 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Huntsman

 

Let’s say just say it…Snow White and the Huntsman was not well done.The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the hot and cold shell that envelops its predecessor.  It’s not perfect, but is action enjoyment coupled with corny sporadic humor.  Not to mention, Chris Hemsworth finally got his balls back.  I can tell you that.  Snow White and the Huntsman emasculated the action-packed hunk of man that is Hemsworth.  Though some believe that this story should not have been told, but I enjoyed the unveiling of the back-backstory.  The film could have been structured to be less predictable but sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy a film for your base needs: adrenaline, fear, and desire.

Film Review: ‘[The Finest Hours]’!!

by Janet White on Jan 30th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The Finest Hours Rescue

The Finest Hours opens on the hood of a 50s vehicle and a lot of snow.  Two men, Bernie Webber (Chris Pine) and his friend, are driving to meet two ladies for a blind date.  The apprehensive Webber meets his match when he lays eyes on Smokey the Bear (it will make sense if you see the film).  Miriam (Holliday Grainger) is Webber’s spitfire love interest.   Read the rest of this entry »

Japan’s highly praised Studio Ghibli raised the animation bar when they introduced the world to a story that brought in studio-gold with an Academy Award – ‘Spirited Away‘. It was thought impossible, but the production commpany one-upped itself with one of the most beautifully animated pictures, ‘When Marnie Was There‘.

Film Review: ‘Selma’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

se

It’s no doubt that Martin Luther King Jr. was one of the most influential people in the world. He fought for basic human rights, received a Nobel Peace Prize, and not only changed a nation for good, but changed the world. This film is not necessarily a biopic on iconic man, but rather a glimpse on a short period of time that focuses on the 1965 voting marches from Selma, Alabama to Montgomery, Alabama, that was to ensure that anyone, no matter your race, color, creed, or religion, could have the right to vote.

Film Review: ‘Predestination’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

2013_04_15  predestination_0241 2_{6320ac3a-9984-e311-8492-d4ae527c3b65}

Time travel has been done before Back to the Future, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Timecop, Terminator, and most recently Interstellar, but it hasn’t been done like this.  It is like Interstellar had a lovechild with the film, Womb.  If you haven’t seen Womb or Interstellar, just know that they were both mind-benders in two different ways that join together in Predestination. To mention the aspects would give the story away.  I believe this is the first time a film has explored the consequences of time travel in such a raw way.  No holds barred doesn’t even come close to the conclusions the viewer will see in this perverse tale.

Janet White’s Best/Worst List of 2014!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

 

2014What an interesting year in film.  There were some really good films and REALLY bad ones.  Some are bad because of my disappointment in the execution of potential brilliance.  Others are good because they brought an amazing story in a skillful manner that is worthy of memory.  I can only speak to the films that I was either blessed or, in some cases, cursed to screen, 23 in all (plus one cool dance performance).  Feedback is encouraged whether you agree, disagree, think I’m nuts (I am a little crazy), or if you think a film I reviewed should have been included.  Here are my Top 10 Best Films and Top 5 Worst Films of 2014….

Well we finally have a trailer for the new ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ film, which Michael Bay is producing with Jonathan Liebesman  directing. Plot synopsis: The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians.

The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April O’Neil (Megan Fox) and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick (Will Arnett) to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan. This doesn’t look great, but one can hope, right? Enjoy the trailer.

The ‘Justice League’ Movie Just Got Interesting!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

url-2

The good folks over at Latino Review have posted a bit of information that a lot of you will find exciting. It seems that Warner Bros., of course will be handling the ‘Justice League‘ film, but we have reported a few times on potential directors, producers, writers, and which superheroes would be in the first film. 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.
