Hello, Jana here,

In_Your_Eyes_Tribeca_poster

Movies have been moving to digital platforms for a long time. I still think back to the original movie collection I had when I became a total movie buff. I actually worked at a video rental store in high school called ‘The Movie Buff’. It was the greatest job in the world and set me up for a life-long fascination with film. Thinking back to that movie collection, I had over 450 VHS tapes. Over the years, I’ve had to get rid of them to make room for the newest platform of DVD’s. Way too many years later, I have no VHS tapes, but have tons of DVD’s and am now copying my collection over to a digital format.

Hi, Bryan Here….

much-ado-about-nothing_612x907

Joss Whedon has taken off his brown coat and hung up his Avengers costumes for the time being and has given us a laugh-out-loud and fresh telling of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing‘. With amazing characters, comedy at every turn, and an excellent eye for direction, Whedon pulls off this amazing tale with grace and fun, and is different enough to stand on its own from Kenneth Branagh’s version from twenty years ago. I imagine that fans of ‘Firefly‘, ‘Buffy‘, and ‘The Avengers‘ will be first in line this weekend to support their hero Whedon, but I also expect this to gain a bigger following with a wider audience, making a decent theatrical return.

Hi, Bryan Here….

marvels-agents-of-shield-cast

Well at the ABC UpFront presentation today, Joss Whedon showcased a long trailer for the ABC upcoming series ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘, which will focus on the agents and other superheros from the Marvel universe, which I bet will tie in loosely with the next ‘Avengers’ film. The series will air in the Fall on Tuesdays at the 8pm time slot. I cannot wait for this.  The trailer looks amazing. And yes, COULSON LIVES!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all saw this coming, right?  Disney CEO Bob Iger announced today that Joss Whedon will be back to write and direct the sequel to ‘The Avengers’.  Add to that, Whedon will head up a live action TV series involving the Marvel characters.  There is no title or release date yet for the sequel, but it’s look like it will be at least 2015 before the sequel hits.

Hi Bryan Here…..

Joss Whedon revealed that he worked on secret project on twitter last night and released sort of a press release about it.  Whedon brought us the Buffy universe, the Firefly universe, and now he is bringing us ‘The Avengers’ for Marvel.  This secret project definitely sounds interesting.  Check out the website HERE.

Hi Bryan Here….

Kenneth Branagh wasn’t the only director on ‘Thor’.  It seems that Joss Whedon directed the “after credits” scene that Marvel Films has come so accustomed to since ‘Iron Man’.  Joss Whedon as you know will be directing the upcoming epic ‘Avengers’ film.

Hi Bryan Here…

Did you ever think we would get an ultimate big budget Avengers film??  I didn’t.  But with he success of all these comic book films and ever since Iron Man one is where Marvel Comics pretty much took control over their characters and films was the start of this whole Avengers film.  All those years ago.

Hi Bryan Here…


It is very difficult to imagine a Buffy Universe without any involvement from its creator, Joss Whedon.  I can’t believe it was 1992 when I was first introduced to Buffy.  I was 11 years old.  Then I went on to enjoy the Buffy universe through tv shows and loved every minute of it.  But now, we will get a reboot on the big silver screen of the Buffy universe.

Justifying the Female Villain: An Essay by Tuesday Shank!

Justifying the Female Villain

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

I stumbled through my college career. After the better part of six years, I began my work on my senior thesis. I undertook the easiest thesis I could think for myself to do: analyze a television show. My advisor’s academic expertise was gender studies. As a fan of Joss Whedon, I knew of Joss Whedon’s reputation for feminist characters and decided to use my thesis to sing Whedon’s praises.

Thus, I began my work on “Careful Jayne, You’ll Scare the Women: An Analysis of Gender Representations in the Television Show, Firefly”. I watched Firefly enough that I’m still not eager to see it again. Halfway through the semester, I just wanted to watch anything else.

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.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Again, how old am I? It’s the 25th anniversary of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (The Movie) and is getting a Blu-ray release and for the first time ever – a digital HD release #DigitalVampires.  Joss Whedon sure struck gold with this horror-comedy vampire genre that took place in high school, which spawned one of the best tv shows ever made. With an-all star cast that includes Kristy Swanson, Donald Sutherland, Paul Reubens, Luke Perry, Ben Affleck, and Rutger Hauer, it’s all vampires, blood, guts, cheerleading, and prom.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

This is definitely on my radar now. Jeff Bridges and Chris Hemsworth, meaning The Dude and Thor are most likely going to star in a new film called Bad Times at the El Royale, which will be directed by Drew Goddard and released by 20th Century Fox. Despite the awesome two actors and the cool title, filmmaker Drew Goddard is one to watch for sure.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Good news and bad news, folks. The good news is that Fox is releasing two amazing TV Shows for their Anniversary  on September 19th, being Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly from Joss Whedon. There will be new packaging and collectibles with each set. The bad news is that there still isn’t and won’t be a Blu-ray or high definition version of Buffy, which just sucks and drives a stake right through my heart. This show looks terrible and is in badly need of an HD upgrade.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

At San Diego Comic-Con today, the cast and crew of the upcoming Justice League movie debuted more footage, which looks amazing. Zack Snyder’s style is all over this film, however you can tell where Joss Whedon stepped in. The trailer shows all sorts of actions, characters and gives more insight on just what is going on in the film and where it’s going.

DC Announces its next movie will be Shazam!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The cat is out of the bag. The next big movie in the DC Cinematic Universe will be Shazam!, which is a story about a boy who transforms into the mightiest mortal on Earth. Filming should begin at the start of 2018 and will release the following year. They even have a director now, which is David F. Sandberg – a horror filmmaker. Sandberg made Lights Out and the upcoming Annabelle: Creation, according to THR. That’s pretty much it. Now he’s getting a big comic book franchise. It’s exciting for sure and judging by Lights Out, I’m sure he’s more than capable.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

One of the finer horror/comedy movies to ever be released on the big screen is finally getting the 4K UHD treatment. That movie is The Cabin in the Woods, meaning we will get all those monsters and mermaids in glorious HDR. I just can’t wait to watch this all over again. The 4K release will also come with the standard Blu-ray, as well as the Digital Copy, which will release on September 5th. Below is all the information you’ll need.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Dallas Comic Con 2015: Georges Jeanty Interview!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2015

Hillary T., Here…

cbr-georges-sdcc13-pic

Georges Jeanty is known in the comic world as the man who reinvented Buffy and Kate Kane, aka Batwoman. Did you know Joss Whedon asked for him personally? He wanted someone who draw comic book style art but still hang on to the likenesses of our favorite characters. Jeanty has a penchant for that. I had the distinct pleasure to talk to him at Fan Expo Dallas and ask him about his work with Joss and on the Buffy series and other Joss projects. He was gracious and kind, and I look forward to talking with him again.

Joss Whedon comes back to direct the Avengers one more time in “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”  This is undoubtedly the most action packed film to date from the Marvel universe.  From the very first frame, it is nearly two and a half hours of epic battles with your favorite superheroes.  Now, it may be true that some character development screen time has been sacrificed to bring the gloriously orchestrated fighting that graces the screen; however, you have been getting to know these characters for the better part of seven years now.  The public demands to see the Avengers in action, and Whedon serves it up on a silver platter!

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

4437523-who-do-you-think-will-die-in-avengers-age-of-ultron_0

To basically start out the summer of 2015 with a big bang, comes the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel’s 2012’s ‘Avengers‘ film, which is titled ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘. It’s been a long time coming too. Ever since 2008, when we saw Robert Downey Jr. put on the Iron Man suit for the first time, we all knew Marvel Entertainment had a huge franchise on their hands, as they teased a big film called ‘The Avengers‘, which put a lot of our favorite superheroes together to fight evil. After several solo movies with the likes of Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man, we finally got an ‘Avengers‘ movie in 2012, which made over $1 billion for Marvel and Disney, and was met with much praise and critical success. It was because of this, that Marvel has announced tons of superhero films through the year 2019 that will play into their overall story arc they have been building since 2008. We’ve all been anxiously awaiting this sequel for quite some time now, with tons of posters and trailers that have more than elevated our calm levels with excitement. Now the time is finally here for another hefty dose of ‘Avengers‘ with each superhero returning along with Joss Whedon directing.

Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

Think back to 2002 and what we were watching on TV. ‘American Idol‘ had just began it’s monumental first season, Joss Whedon’s space-western ‘Firefly‘ was being aired out of order, ‘The X-Files‘ was ending it’s 9 season run and America got it’s first look at a reality show based on a celebrity’s home-life with ‘The Osbournes‘. That’s right, the metaphorical shot heard round-the-world from the gun that would inevitably be responsible for making the Kardashian family famous for being rich and stupid took first blood with the family of ‘Black Sabbath‘ rocker, Ozzy Osbourne.

It was quite comical, but one thing is for sure, the trailer was amazing.

Neil Patrick Harris Bringing Variety Show To NBC!!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 27th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

neil-patrick-harris-the-out-list-hbo

 

Depending on your age, when you hear the name Neil Patrick Harris, you either think of ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, or like me, it’s ‘Doogie Howser, M.D.‘ A 16 year old NPH stole the collective heart of girls everywhere when he played the prodigious child doctor. From that day forward, Harris would be a steady presence on TV. He appeared in numerous one-off series and made-for-TV movies that kept him in front of a camera just enough to make us want more. In addition to earning a spot that would cement his name, once again, in the annals of hit series with ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, he lent his voice to multiple animated ventures. NPH’s ever evolving resume led to a singing role as the title character in Joss Whedon’sDr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog‘. The thespian has hit the boards on Broadway in between his recorded projects and his most recent theatre stint was the titular part in ‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch‘ where he drew rave reviews from even the most staunch critics. Hedwig is now being played by Michael C. Hall.

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.

Firefly. I only need that one word to raise blood pressure, inspire hopes and in some cases, cause Mandarin curses through gritted teeth. Joss Whedon’s rag-tag group of soldiers, mechanics, a courtesan, a pilot, doctor and a preacher….and Jane, have burrowed into the depths of each and every Browncoat-loving fan. We curse Fox for their ignorance in airing the episodes incorrectly and then for canceling. With only one season in our grasp, we have sustained the furious fandom that we have, calling ourselves Browncoats.

Comic Con.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks Teaming Up Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 22nd, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

09-steven-spielberg-tom-hanks-1

I’m like any other film-lover and I have favorite directors that I will religiously watch anything they turn out. I love the films of Joss Whedon, Cameron Crowe, Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg among others. Spielberg took a bite out of fame with one of my absolute favorite movies of all-time, ‘Jaws‘ in 1975. Yes, another thing I love is a pun, no matter how bad it can be. Spielberg has far too many epic films to count without devoting a whole article to the greatness that is Spielberg. Some of the highlights are ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial‘, the ‘Indiana Jones‘ films, ‘Schindler’s List‘…and on and on and on.

Hello, Jana here,

h0qn7y2r4ikrdkrf7ve4

A John Grisham novel is like a mug of coffee on a stormy day, a glass of wine after the kids are asleep, or even a Xanax when you want to rip someone’s head off. The point is, it’s a calming, reassuring presence. It’s going to be an intense, legal, thrill ride that has a feel-good ending. Grisham’s tried and true writing style is gripping, authentic and something that lends itself to film adaptation easily. This has been the case with ‘The Firm‘, ‘The Pelican Brief‘, ‘The Client‘ and ‘A Time to Kill‘ among several others. There is even a complete departure from his norm evident in ‘Christmas With The Kranks‘.

If you don’t know who Dr. Horrible is, I’m going to assume you have been living under a rock, on Mars, or in a cave with no sunlight and/or internet access. ‘Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog‘ is a comedy, tragedy, musical….a comtragical? I like that. I officially coin ‘comtragical’ TM pending. The story in 3 separate acts stars gorgeous voices and wonderful voices from Neil Patrick Harris, Nathan Fillion and Felicia Day.

‘Firefly’ Producer Hints At A Limited Series Reboot!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

firefly

Wow. The browncoats must be overjoyed right now. ‘Firefly‘ producer-writer Tim Minear discussed the possibility of a new season or reboot of the original show, which was cancelled way too soon over a decade a go. Now let me assure you, that nothing is in the works as far as a tv show right now. But let’s just go through the facts shall we?

‘Serenity’ Takes Flight With New Comic Book!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 30th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Serenity

 

Serenity’…yes, THAT ‘Serenity’. Not the calm, peaceful tranquil serenity. Joss Whedon’s  space-western baby, ‘Serenity’. You can’t call yourself a proper sci-fi geek without quieting your outrage at the improper treatment of the genesis television show named after the beloved transport ship that is the Firefly named Serenity. For those of us that memorized insults in Mandarin – Fox programming execs are just BUN tyen-shung duh ee-DWAY-RO, which is to say “stupid inbred stack of meat” – Firefly is the greatest show that never had the chance to burn out on its own. Big nod of appreciation to this site for the translation and pronunciation.

Joss Whedon is always looking to push the bar higher and higher with his projects. This could not be more true with Marvel’sAgents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘. He hints and teases us with just a little new information at a time. This time, we know that means Deathlok is making an appearance. Marvel TV chief Jeph Loeb confirmed that J. August Richards’ character, Mike Peterson, will become the cyborg. Loeb continued, “We’ve been leaving breadcrumbs along the way. This is a major Marvel character appearing on TV, on film for the first time.”

Wonder Woman TV Show Cancelled!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

wonder-woman1

It seems that Wonder Woman just can’t get any love these days. Joss Whedon tried rebooting Wonder Woman several years ago, but that didn’t go anywhere and the CW announced earlier last year that the DC superhero would get her own show called ‘Amazon’, which was a prequel in the vein of ‘Smallville‘ that showcased a young Wonder Woman discovering her powers.

Before, I get into the future project of Aaron Taylor-Johnson, a.k.a. Kick Ass, let me just take a moment to express how absolutely gorgeous this guy looks without the frizzy hair of his first appearance as the normal dude turned vigilante. I kind of slid my eyes past him because I could not see the hottie he had hidden. I just checked out a picture of him and was freaking gobsmacked at the boy looking back at me that will be filling my night time thoughts. Yummy. Now that I’ve stated the obvious but important point of his looks I can get on with his new project.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Iron Man 3’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

iron-man3

With ‘Iron Man 2‘ proving to be less than stellar back in 2010, this third sequel of the Marvelhero returns with a much needed boost of attitude and character that takes us through many twists and turns and tons of new Iron Man suits. This can be considered a sequel to both 2010′s ‘Iron Man‘ and Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘. Director Shane Black tosses away much of the wham-bam action scenes and focuses on the quick witted humor and our hero’s internal struggle with crippling panic attacks. I have no doubt this will be a fan favorite of the franchise.

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?”

Bryan’s Top 20 Films of 2012!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I can’t believe that 2012 is at its end and we are about to welcome 2013.  This year has gone by so fast, and man, did I see tons of films.  When I started making this 2012 list, I came up with 87 films that I enjoyed.  Yes, you read that right, 87, meaning there were probably just as many films that I didn’t enjoy.  Now, below is my top 20 of the year. I just couldn’t do it with 10 this year.  And these are films that I watched in the theater or at home and that don’t necessarily come out this year, but I did see this year.  And I’m sure I’ll get a lot of criticism for my list, but hey this is my list, not yours.  You can have your own.  But my lists tend to be different than most people’s as you can tell from my previous lists HERE. So without any further delay, below is my TOP 20 films for 2012.

‘The Avengers’ Box Office Total and Counting!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joss Whedon’s ‘Avengers is breaking records all over the place.  It is the fasted film ever to reach $200 million.  And has the biggest one day record and biggest weekend record to date.  Take that James Cameron, George Lucas, Twilight twats, and Potter fans.  And the numbers keep on coming in.  I’m willing to bet that it will break records for biggest week, and possible biggest grossing movie ever.  You listening DC Comics.  Get your act together and get the JLA movie made.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joss Whedon’s Avengers is what every comic book geek and action film fanatic has dreamed of since they were a little kid.  Not only was it one of the most epic films ever shot on film, but Whedon used his wit and unique story telling to weave these iconic characters into a team that destroys evil.  You see, it’s not all about the people who form a team and save our planet.  It’s about a group of people from different times and different worlds, who necessarily don’t belong together, but realize that by teaming up, they form something bigger than themselves.  And notice that I don’t use the term superhero.  None of the Avengers refer to themselves or think of themselves as heroes, with the exception of Captain America, who really is the only hero in the story.

‘CAPTAIN AMERICA’ REVIEW

Don’t get me wrong, the movie was good.  We have the origin story of Steve Rogers, the kind hearted wimpy kid that would do anything to fight for his country.  Rogers is an idealistic, wholesome idea of the values of America, truth, justice, and the American way…wait, that was reserved for another comic franchise.

TOP 133 FILMS OF THE LAST DECADE #’S 68-54

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2010

Bryan Here…

Knocking out this list on time and schedule nowadays.  Feels good.  Some great films on this part of the list.  Some that I have not seen in a while that I will have to watch again soon. We’re getting down to the #1 spot pretty quickly.  Enjoy this part of the list #’s 68-54.  As usual, you will get the title of the movie and the date it was released plus a mini review/memory by me.  Also a link to purchase the movie if you are ever so inclined which would donate a small percentage back to this website so we can keep giving you AWESOME material and prizes.

Enjoy

68_ Iron Man – May 2, 2008

Another comic book film.  Iron Man is really really good in pretty much every way.  Robert Downey Jr. is killer in this film as the super-hero and Jeff Bridges is a pretty convincing bad guy.  This film is a lot of fun and full of laughs and action.  Can’t wait for the sequel and Avengers film.  Go Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

67_ Brick – March 31, 2006

This film is great.  A wonderful homage to the old 30’s noir films.  Set in present time but take the characters and have them talk like they did in the 30’s noir film and a plot and story line likewise.  It is so great.  Tons of twists and turns.  Joseph Gordon Levitt is amazing.  I am proud to have this on the list.  Love this film.

66_ Drag Me To Hell – May 29, 2009

Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre from his long stint on the Spidey franchise is 100 % AWESOME.  Sadly no Bruce Campbell, but Drag Me To Hell is Evil Dead I & II and Army of Darkness rolled into one film.  Yes it is that great.  This is your standard tale  of a gypsy woman curing a young girl this curse activates a demon to terrorize its victims and DRAG THEM TO HELL.  Good scares and great laughs.  A lot of fun.

65_ Zoolander – September 28, 2001

Ben Stiller is great director and a great character actor.  Tons of quotable lines from this film even today.  A dark comedy in the world of super-models.  I mean in the first five minutes of the film a few super models die in  a gas station fire which they started.  HILARIOUS.  Tons of great cameos and acting all around.  Zoolander will always have a place in my home and heart.   I mean he did found the Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good.

64_ Napoleon Dynamite – June 11, 2004

I saw this film five times before it was initially released wide and I loved every minute of it.  I really cannot tell what time period it is in other than sometime in the vague present, but Napoleon is a kid in high school who is maybe the most awkward kid ever, but he means well.  This is the story of his life in the span of a few weeks.  It is quite hilarious in this dry humor.  This character is one of the cult icons now in history.  The dance number at the end to Canned heat classic.  Love this film.

63_ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – March 19, 2004

A gem of a film from Gondry.  This film is fantastic film.  Almost like you are in a dream and nightmare at the same time through out the whole film.  A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.  Truly fantastic.

62_ Ratatouille – June 29, 2007

I really liked this pixar film.  All about the restaurant and food and cooking industry.  So much heart and love is in this film.  It looks beautiful and and the voice acting by Patton Oswalt is wonderful.  Anyone can cook, even a rat.  Love it.

61_ The Departed – October 6, 2006

A really great gangster film from the best gangster director.  That is Marty Scorcesse.  Boston gangs.  All-star cast and tons of twists and references to other mob films.  Leonardo Di Caprio plays an undercover agent in the mob and tries to keep his sanity and wits during the whole time.  What a great film.  Alec Baldwin is hilarious in this film.

60_ Munich – December 23, 2005

A Spielberg film about the true events and revenge of the horrible attack at the Munich Olympic games against the Israel team.  Eric Bana leads the grou to kill one by one the terrorists responsible for the murders.  What an amazing film.  Everything is great about this film except for the last ten minutes which is what to expect from Spielberg films.

59_ Thank You For Smoking – March 17, 2006

I really loved this film.  This about lobbyists in our nation.  Lobbyists for tobacco, guns, and alcohol and how they persuade politicians and important people to keep their industry making large amounts of money.  It is very good and entertaining.  Pretty scary too that this actually goes on.  Great writing and acting all around.

58_ The Hangover – June 5, 2009

Form the director of Old School and Road Trip comes the next film about a crazy Bachelor Party in vegas with strippers, guns, tasers, naked people, Mike Tyson, tigers and much much more.  I believe this film is the highest gross out of any R rated film ever.  It is very funny.  Very funny.  Leslie Chow.

57_ Superbad – August 17, 2007

Oh this great comedy film brought tears of laughter to my face.  Oh so funny.  Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are best friends in their last days of high school who have only really hung out with each other and are invited to  a huge party and are asked to supply the liquor which is the “entire funness” of the party.  This is their journey to accomplish this with their friend McLovin who is a cult icon now too.  This film is great and has most of the Apatow gang in it.  Not only does this film bring the best jokes but it also has a great heart and soul in it as well.  Friendship.

56_ Serenity – September 30, 2005

Man Joss Whedon kicks ass.  His vision of a sci-fi/western world is phenomenal.  This was a television series before a film.  The film is equally awesome as the show was.  I wish more films were like this.  It is entertaining, scary, funny, romantic, and pretty much all the emotions across the board in the span of two hours.  This will entertain you for years to come.  There is a reason all these shirts and posters say Joss Whedon is my Master now.  It is true.

55_ 300 – March 9, 2007

Frank Miller’s brutal Spartan comic became a reality when director Zack Snyder took the helm and adapted it into a movie.  This movies is 99% shot on a green screen with a “crush” technique that gives the film its rustic vintage look.  I was wondering how they were going to turn a 32 page comic book into a whole two hour feature length film, but they did.  And did it well.  I saw a screener of this movie way before its initial release and it was introduced by UFC Champ Chuck Liddell.    Chuck got us all in the mood for a hardcore brutal film about honor and freedom.  The fight scenes were filmed extremely well and has been copied in many other movies after this one.  I am referring to the normal pace to the slow- mo action beats all in one shot.  The use of heavy metal music was an added booster to the balls this movies has.  I really liked this movie.  Very entertaining.

54_ Hot Fuzz – February 14, 2007

The second feature film from BADASS director, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), brings us his vision of the ultimate fast paced action thriller in Hot Fuzz.  This film starred the same cast as Shaun of the Dead, and was about the best police officer in London getting re-assigned to a very small quiet village.  The people who live in the village are not what they seem.  This film packs a huge punch of action and gut busting laughs.  The end action sequence lasts about 25 minutes and is balls to the wall AWESOME.  Edgar Wright can do NO wrong.  I saw the U.S. premiere of this film at AFI, and met Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, and Dolph Lundgren (who introduced the film).  A great film that I will enjoy through the ages and one of the best action films EVER.

Director M. Night Shyamalan has announced that he will be directing another sci-fi film recently.  Shyamalan’s work as of recently has not been well received and for good reason.

M. Night gave us Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs.  All magnificent achievements in filmmaking.  But his recent efforts such as: The Lady in the Water and The Last Airbender have been nothing short of AWFUL.

So it seems he is going to direct a film which he has not written (very strange since he has written pretty much everything he has directed) over at Will Smith’s production company and studios Overbrook which might lend a hand to get Will Smith or his son Jayden smith to star in this film.

The movie he is looking to direct is called 1,000 A.E.  This reminds me of that animated film that came out years ago called Titan A.E.  A.E. stand for After Earth.  Joss Whedon wrote that movie.

The film has already been written by Gary Whitta who wrote The Book of Eli.

Although nothing is really known about this movie yet.

What are your thoughts?

The TV series  may have ended but Joss Whedon continued the series in comic book form right where season 7 left off.

Season 8 of the Buffy universe debuted a few years ago and it is pretty spectacular.  Great storytelling and artwork.  Now it is getting the motion comic treatment on bluray and will be released on January 4th, 2011.

No extras have been announced but Fox says trivia, artwork galleries, and featurettes will most likely make it to the release.

Very excited about this.  Love me some BUFFY.

Bluray/DVD Releases For the 2nd Week of October

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 12th, 2010

A few good releases this week.  Some titles I have been waiting quite a while for to be released.  Any week is good when you get a Wes Anderson Criterion movie.  So, as usual, the picture links will whisk you away over to amazon, where you can learn more about each title, and purchase the movie for a great discount, which also donates a small percent to this column to keep this website going.  Here we go….

The Darjeeling Limited (Criterion Collection Bluray)

I love this Wes Anderson film.  A story about three brothers who are on an emotional and physical journey to come to terms with their lives, and their father’s death, and the disappearance of their mother.  The whole entire film pretty much takes place in India which is BEAUTIFUL.  The soundtrack is littered with Kinks songs which makes it a pleasure to listen to.  Since being a Criterion Collection release, it is packed with extras which include:

New high-definition digital transfer approved by director Wes Anderson

Anderson’s short film Hotel Chevalier (part one of The Darjeeling Limited)

Audio commentary featuring Anderson and cowriters

Actives receive personality imprints, allowing them to temporarily become anyone or anything — the perfect burglar, lover, spy, or assassin. Now, with the FBI and her own shadowy past closing in, Echo must face a rogue Active who will stop at nothing to bring Dollhouse down — forever.

The Magician (Criterion Collection Bluray)

Ingmar Bergman’s The Magician (Ansiktet) is an engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema’s premier illusionists. Max von Sydow stars as Dr. Vogler, a mid-nineteenth-century traveling mesmerist and peddler of potions whose magic is put to the test by a small town’s cruel, eminently rational minister of health, Dr. Vergerus. The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that’s both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.

Extras include:

Supplements

  • New visual essay by Bergman scholar Peter Cowie
  • Brief 1967 video interview with director Ingmar Bergman about the film
  • Rare English-language audio interview with Bergman, conducted by filmmakers Olivier Assayas and Stig Björkman

Wolverine and the X-Men: Complete Series (Bluray)

This show was badass.  Glad it is finally on bluray.  After a mysterious explosion at the Xavier mansion, and the resulting disappearances of Professor Xavier and Jean Grey, the distraught X-Men disband. But soon Wolverine, Storm, Beast and the others must join together again to not only battle the increasingly powerful Mutant Response Division, but also to prevent a catastrophic future that Xavier has warned Wolverine must never come to pass. With help from their allies, the heroic X-Men wage war against formidable foes as the present and future collide. But who will win? Discover for yourself as this extraordinary series is presented together in one complete collection like never before.

Supplements

  • Audio commentaries
  • Two unique featurettes

Leaves of Grass (Bluray)

I do not know much about this film, but I cannot believe this film did not get a major release.  It stars Edward Norton, Richard Dreyfuss, Tim Blake Nelson, Susan Sarandon, and Keri Russell.  An Ivy League professor is lured back to his Oklahoma hometown, where his twin brother, a small-time pot grower, has concocted a scheme to take down a local drug lord.  Sounds awesome.  I’ll be picking this up.

Well that’s it for this week.  Stay tuned for next week for new releases.

Guess Who’s Bringing Wonder Woman to TV Series??

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2010

Wonder Woman is coming back  to your TV sets sooner than later.  It will be difficult to replace Lynda Carter.  She had the iconic look and shape that just defined Wonder Woman.

Well writer, creator, producer David E. Kelley of Boston Legal and Ally McBeal fame will be returning to the TV airwaves and bringing us a reboot of Wonder Woman.

A while ago, Joss Whedon was set to direct a big screen Wonder Woman film that took place during the WW2 era, but it never got off the ground.

No details on to what timeline Wonder Woman will take place.  I wonder if Kelley wants to do a Smallville-esque tv show but for Wonder Woman.  Maybe Wonder Woman will be a lawyer.  Who knows.

Your thoughts?

Bryan Reviews ‘Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous’ DVD!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous’ is the second part of a trilogy written by Joss “man-god” Whedon.  This is a motion comic film which is illustrated by the talented John Cassaday and is out just in time I feel to promote Whedon’s epic Avenger film.  This is not the best work I’ve seen, but it’s not the worst either.  I just feel like this was rushed to release rather than give it the proper time to be the badass DVD it deserves to be.

Hi, Bryan Here…
