Hey guys, Jana here,

14148_large_Justin_Long

In more TV news today, Justin Long is set to star in ‘Dream Team‘, an ABC half hour comedy from writers Kari Lizer and Bill Wrubel. Long is an excellent comedic actor with memorable roles in a dozen things from ‘Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story‘ to ‘Galaxy Quest‘, ‘Accepted’ before popping up in a bit more of an action role in ‘Live Free or Die Hard‘ but his character had one foot firmly planted in the funny world, as well. He also starred in one of Kevin Smith’s forays into the horror world with ‘Tusk‘.

ABC’S ‘Irreversible’ Casts Justin Long!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 12th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

justin-long-02

ABC has been in the process of trying to get ‘Irreversible‘ off the ground for a while now. First they cast David Schwimmer in the lead but have now re-cast that character with Justin Long. The series will have the feel of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘ and centers on Andy (Long) and Sarah. The eccentric and self-absorbed couple bring about their own misfortunes which will be amusing on our side. To add to the hilarity, the set up lends itself to freedom of the actors to improvise in part.

Justin’s Film Review of ‘Mood Indigo’!!

Michel Gondry has always been a bit of a mixed bag. For every Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, there are seemingly two The Green Hornets. It’s enough to make one mourn the demise of the ever-prevalent music videos that first brought him to prominence. So what can you expect from his latest venture, Mood Indigo? Is it an instant classic or will it make you join the queue to have the last ninety minutes of your memory erased? Read the rest of this entry »

We reported earlier that Michael Jackson’s new posthumous album, ‘XSCAPE‘, was released this week and featured several amazing songs from Michael. The songs had lyrics sung by Jackson from the 80s through 1999 and had several musicians today add tracks and beats to them. Jackson was working on these songs up until his untimely death in 2009.

Film Review: Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom’

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

la-et-mn-nelson-mandela-movie-release-date-201-001

There have been numerous films, television programs, and documentaries that have discussed the life of Nelson Mandela. Not too mention the treasure trove of books, biographies, and interviews you can read and watch detailing his beliefs and politics. And Justin Chadwick’s narrative film ‘Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom‘ is yet another addition to the ever expanding universe of Mandela. Adapted by William Nicholson from Mandela’s autobiography of the same name, this two and a half hour film seems like a long slow walk indeed, with too much to cover and some cheese sprinkled here and there. Although actor Idris Elba’s performance of Mandela is one of the best I’ve ever seen, this long walk could have been better.

THE FILM


Back in 2009, the brilliant filmmaker Sam Raimi journeyed back to his horror roots and made a fun-as-hell horror-comedy film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘. For those of you who don’t remember who Sam Raimi is, movies like ‘Evil Dead II‘, ‘Army of Darkness‘, ‘The Spider-Man Trilogy‘, and ‘Darkman‘ are some of his accomplishments. Raimi and his brother and frequent collaborator Ivan Raimi had an idea for a horror film called ‘The Curse‘, but when Raimi booked the ‘Spider-Man‘ gig, that film was put on hold for the next decade. After ‘Spider-Man 3‘ was released, Sam and Ivan went quickly back to their idea to work on a low budget horror film again, which turned into ‘Drag Me To Hell’.

After Sam Raimi (The Evil Dead Trilogy) got done filming ‘Spider-Man‘ movies and a variety of other non-horror projects, the master filmmaker returned to his roots with a fun-as-hell film called ‘Drag Me To Hell‘, which mixed his unique style of silly humor and ultimate terror. The film was released in 2009 and was a return to form for Raimi, before he got on board with revamping ‘The Evil Dead‘ in TV series form. The new collector’s Edition Blu-ray will be available on February 13th and have theatrical and unrated cuts of the film, a new transfer, and new interviews with the cast. Prior bonus features will also be available here too. I can’t wait for this one.

When superstar director Kevin Smith and the man of 1,000 faces, Johnny Depp, put their daughters in a movie together, you know it’s going to be one to watch. and it’s ‘Yoga Hosers’, especially with Depp taking on yet another persona to appear next to his daughter. This one looks very interesting. Justin Long, star of the first of Smith’s True North Trilogy – ‘Tusk‘, appears along with an all-star cast featuring Smith and his partner-in-crime Jason Mewes. The stars are the Colleen’s played by Lily Rose-Madder Depp and Harley Quinn Smith. We’ve even got another appearance by the legendary Stan Lee.

Hey guys, Jana here,

galaxyquest

Was there a better spoof comedy in 1999 than ‘Galaxy Quest‘? I’m gonna go ahead and say there wasn’t and Quest was the greatest thing since ‘Spaceballs‘. As far as space spoofs go, it was killer and it helped that Tim Allen starred. In the 90’s I was addicted to ‘Home Improvement‘ and couldn’t get enough of the comedian. I actually read both of his books and watched every show in syndication so many times that I could quote them in my sleep. With my love of Allen, it was a given I had to watch ‘Galaxy Quest‘, the bonus part was, it was an epic movie on its own!

Film Review: ‘Tusk’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

tusk-movie

There is no doubt that Kevin Smith belongs in the same bracket as some of the best directors and story tellers of all time. He along with Quentin Tarantino and a few other filmmakers in the early 90s made their own creative films on a very cheap budget and hit success and have continued to make films still to this day. But Kevin’s story is quite the fun one. This is a guy who loves comics and movies who dropped out of film school, worked at a video store and maxed out his credit cards to the tune of $20k to make his first film ‘Clerks‘.

There are few actors as widely known in Hollywood as Johnny Depp is right now. If you take his fan base and star power and attach it to a  writer-filmmaker of remarkable erudition like Kevin Smith, what results is going to be momentous. Smith has a farcical sense of humor and everything he writes is peppered with the same wry commentary that is fan-freaking-tastic!

Guide To Wave One Events at Fantastic Fest 2014!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

ff2014-poster-web-geof-darrow__full

 

Fantastic Fest is one of the best film festivals in the U.S. not to mention the biggest. Everything there is awesome and amazing. Definitely the place to go if you love genre films as they feature the newest films from all categories featuring in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action  from all over. Some of the best and most loved films have had their world premieres at the festival. Hoping to take its place next to huge hits like ‘There Will Be Blood‘, ‘Zombieland‘ and ‘Apocalypto‘ is ‘Tusk‘. The oddly named flick comes from the brilliant and irreverent mind of Kevin Smith.

Hello, Jana here,

Fox has hit the jackpot when it comes to casting this season. British writer-actor Nick Frost has officially signed on to co-star in ‘Sober Companion‘ with Justin Long. Frost is an extremely bankable commodity that automatically ups the production value of a project. He is normally seen co-starring with best friend and frequent collaborator Simon Pegg. The pair have given us The Cornetto Trilogy comprised of ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The World’s End‘. They also starred together in ‘Paul‘ which the pair wrote together.

Kevin Smith Will Make ‘Tusk’ Before ‘Clerks III’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2013

Jana B., Here….

kevin_smith_spoilers_large

Kevin Smith. I don’t hide my unabashed love for him and lust for Silent Bob’s counterpart, Jay, or has we know him, Jason Mewes. Felt like I was just living out the fantasy in ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back‘ when he first saw Justice. OK, back to the reason I’m writing this. There is news on the ‘Clerks III‘ front! I seriously did a fist pump like I was channeling my inner Judd Nelson when I learned this. You know how Kevin Smith tells us that we’re going to have a new Clerks movie, but he has to do this one project first? This is one of those projects. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the next film he’s going to make is titled ‘Tusk‘. Smith says it will be an “Ivory bridge” to ‘Clerks III’. If that’s not some Oscar Wilde like word play, I don’t know what is. Yeah, gratuitous insertion of ‘Clerks II‘ reference. Smith says it will make financing the sequel easier and also to work out some of the cobwebs from not having directed a film since 2011’s ‘Red State‘. We can all agree we want Smith at the top of his game for what will probably be the final Clerks installment.

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.

The music or score of any film almost always adds a heightened level of excitement, sadness, horror, or any other emotion to the image on the screen. There is just something great about a good musical score that makes us bond and feel those glorious sentiments with the characters and stories in film. Pixar has done an incredible job of giving us some of the most iconic scores of all time that we still hum and sing on occasion. With all of these added emotions, it’s no pun that a movie about emotions called ‘Inside Out‘ has an incredible score by a fantastic composer named Michael Giacchino.

Michael is no slouch either when it comes to making an orchestra sound alive and full of action. With movies under his belt such as ‘The Incredibles‘, the ‘Star Trek‘ movies, and many other Pixar films, along with recent ‘Jurassic World‘ movies and ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘ – you know the music maestro knows what he’s doing. It’s great to have Mondo release the 45’ single of ‘Inside Out‘ with a couple of its main themes for fans of the film.

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.

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Free Fire - Gun Gang

 

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.  Inundated with morons and piss-poor shooting for a calamitous combination, Free Fire leaves the audience either shaking their heads or bowing over laughing.  Between the mumbling of lines and poor volume control, I missed bits of the dialogue for sure.  It is as if they were aiming to repeat what Tarantino did with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but they were not clever enough.  Complete with wondrous never-ending bullet supplies and a villain’s miraculous ability to stave off death repeatedly aka “movie magic,” Free Fire simply does not make much sense.  Could a person, shot in their right arm, fire a weapon (even automatic rifles) with their right hand?

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Film Review: ‘The Girl on the Train’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

68fbb8f3-27e3-4a97-bda7-d9b8d2a05ee4

I can certainly see the appeal of Paula Hawkins’ first successful novel ‘The Girl on the Train‘, which was released in 2015, and was fast-tracked and optioned into a major motion picture by Universal Pictures to come out this weekend. It has some deeply dark and layered characters and tackles a range of emotions and vices from alcoholism, abuse, and even a murder. It’s a good story with a who-done-it angle that feels fresh and original. The problem here is that the film felt a bit rushed and lazy, which gave way to the very slow burn the film has and never quite stays on point with its many flashbacks and timing, often times showing the same scene several times. It just got tedious and redundant twenty minutes in and never stopped being overly dramatic with longing stares, tears, and silence.

Justin C. here,…

Operation Mekong waits until the final credits roll to inform its audience that the film they’ve just witnessed is based on a true story. I can’t help but feel that this may have been by design as it certainly would have lessened my enjoyment to think that the filmmakers meant for me to believe even for an instant that what I was watching was true.

More than anything else, Mekong is an action movie, but does the element of realism hurt it or help it? Read the rest of this entry »

You Have To See ‘The Man From Death’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

One of the coolest moments of Fantastic Fest was seeing the short film ‘The Man From Death‘, which was directed by Stephen Reedy, and stars Eric R. Lim, Daz Byard, and Dennis Ruel. Eric and Stephen both co-wrote the film too. How do you explain ‘The Man From Death‘? This short film is a mix between the best parts of a Tarantino film with some ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World‘ thrown in, along with some western, kung-fu, and fun-as-hell gore to be enjoyed by all. Sprinkle some Eric Andre and Tim and Eric Awesome Show in there, and you get ‘The Man From Death‘.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but at one time the term “cult film” referred to a movie that failed at the box office during its initial release but eventually found its niche, either through home video release (The Evil Dead) or midnight screenings (The Rocky Horror Picture Show). Nowadays, it seems as if certain filmmakers have grown disinterested in commercial success and are instead targeting that fringe audience they consider underserved by mainstream fare.

Such is the case with The Greasy Strangler. Read the rest of this entry »

FILM REVIEW: “ZOOLOGY”

Justin C., Here…

ZOOLOGY is the story of Natasha, an aging and lonely woman who recaptures some of her youth via a relationship with a much younger man. For all intents and purposes, it’s a story we’ve seen many times before, but with one key exception.

Natasha has a tail. Read the rest of this entry »

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Conjuring 2’

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

157343_front

THE FILM

It seems like a ton of horror movies come out every year, and most times, they don’t live up to their potential. There are a handful of horror movies over the last decade that really satisfy us horror fans. Films like ‘The Babadook‘, ‘It Follows‘, and ‘The Conjuring‘ will still be talked about for years to come. One name in the horror genre, or at least in recent years is James Wan. This man burst onto the scene with ‘Saw‘, which was basically genre changing and spawned a ton of sequels. Wan also made a few other horror films, all testing the bounds and pushing us into a new horror direction, while still respecting his influences.

Here’s the Top 10 Music Films!

Jonathan A., here…

curry

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

Top 10 Summer Camps From Film I Want To Attend!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

School’s out, the days are getting longer, the weather is getting warmer and it’s about the time of year for parents to begin shipping their kids off to various summer camps. Some focus on fun, some are faith-based, others make the focal point anything from acting to sports, I even think there’s a chess camp. Talk about some trouble-makers! Woo-hoo and shit.  No matter where your interests lie, there’s a camp for that. Some of the greatest camps I’ve wanted to attend are all fictional and brought to us by both big and small screens. I’m going to give you a run down of what I think the top 10 summer camps from films are, then you can argue with me if you have better suggestions.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

THE FILM

 Bye Lassie…Bye Benji…Bye to my childhood doggie heroes.  There’s a new action star in town.  Max (Carlos) is the cleverest doggie hero ever.  A Belgian Malinois, Max, is also a Marine service dog.  Finally a film brings sincere tribute to the heroism and struggles these beautiful yet fierce animals endure. Max opens in a desert terrain shot as from Max’s point of view.  Max searches out the village for insurgents and a weapons stash.  Max is highly adept to weapons’ discovery and of course successful in warning his team of Marines of insurgents.  Kyle (Robbie Amell) is Max’s handler.  The two are inseparable.

Film Review: ‘Jem and the Holograms’!

We now live in an age where the Next Big Artist is being found online. Justin Bieber* was discovered on YouTube and being Vine Famous is now C-list enough to get you on Dancing With The Stars. It should then come as no surprise that the reimagining of ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ involves a viral video. Jerrica, being an overly shy singer-songwriter, records a song dressed in disguise as Jem. When her sister Kimber discovers the video on her camera, she secretly posts it to YouTube. The video goes viral and Jem is offered a record deal by THE Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis) of Starlight Enterprises, which couldn’t have happened at a better time, since Jerrica’s aunt Bailey (Molly Ringwald) is about to lose their house. Jerrica accepts the offer, but only if her sisters get to come along as her band. Cue the makeover montage!

FILM REVIEW “SLOW WEST”

by Justin Cline on May 21st, 2015

Justin C., Here…

cdn.indiewire

Westerns, as a film genre, are nearly as old as film itself, the first of which was little more than a short where a bandit leveled his weapon at the camera and blasted unsuspecting viewers. While plotlines have improved markedly since then, there are still those instances where filmmakers show as much care for their audiences as a bullet to the face. In the long lineage of westerns, how fares the latest addition, Slow West?

As we all knew would happen, ‘Star Trek 3‘ is on the horizon, even without the guidance of J.J. Abrams. Director Justin Lin (‘Fast and the Furious’) has taken the con after Roberto Orci left the project. Orci was a writer for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ before he was tapped to direct the third installment. The director isn’t the only change in the project from the last film as the writing team that will be putting pen to paper is undergoing some staff re-vamps, too.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

HBO has just announced some casting for the much anticipated second season of ‘True Detective‘. The new season will be eight episodes long and will shoot in Calfornia. Nic Pizzolatto will return as show runner and writer with Justin Lin (Fast and Furious) directing at least the first two episodes. So far, we know that there will be three police detectives and one big bad criminal who will navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a grisly murder, according to HBO.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

jason-bourne-and-aaron-cross

 

 

Few films can weave a storyline around so many actors and cities and still be a huge draw at the box office, I’m giving you the news about one of them today. The series I’m talking about are the Jason Bourne films, starring Matt Damon. We started with ‘The Bourne Identity‘ in 2002, then ‘The Bourne Supremacy’ in 2004, followed by ‘The Bourne Ultimatum‘ in 2007. In 2012, Damon stood aside and cheered Jeremy Renner on as he made the character of Aaron Cross, uniquely his own, with ‘The Bourne Legacy‘. Renner brings to life another character from the expansive world  that writer Robert Ludlum has created that both characters, and a score of others live in.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

TopGun1

It’s been hoped for, talked about, and wished upon many stars for this to come true. It looks like we are getting a sequel to one of the most amazing films the 1980’s brought us – ‘Top Gun‘. Working up a script for the high-flier is Justin Marks, who is currently in negotiations to work on ‘Top Gun 2‘. Paramount, Skydance and Jerry Bruckheimer are backing this highly anticipated sequel. Bruckheimer was with Disney but has moved to Paramount in April and is jumping in with both feet. I’m seriously confused as to what made it take so long for them to get to sequel stage in the first place. An entire population of women, and some men, would have tossed out money hand over fist to get another glimpse at Cruise’s oiled up abs playing volleyball on the beach.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Pumpkinhead’!!

THE FILM

Would you say “Pumpkinhead‘ three times in the dark in front of a mirror? Of course you would, because you haven’t been a bad girl or boy, have you? I remember seeing ‘Pumpkinhead‘ on VHS back when it came out in the late 80s and fell in love with the horrifying creature known as Pumpkinhead, despite some of the movie’s flaws. Hell, I even owned several of they action figures and toys of Pumpkinhead over the years and every time I come across it in my house, I think, “I better be a good person or Pumkpkinhead will come after me.” Well at least that is what I thought when I was younger. But what most interested me, was the creature itself. And that’s where the late, great legend Stan Winston comes into play.

Guide To Wave Two Films At Fantastic Fest 2014!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 27th, 2014

Hi everyone, Jana here,

Bryan Cranston

When you take a multi-faceted actor like Bryan Cranston, his many hats show throughout his career. You’ve got the spineless, browbeaten dad, Hal from ‘Malcolm in the Middle‘, the absolutely brilliant, frightening, genius that is Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad‘. Then you turn-around and he’s in the ‘Rock of Ages‘ musical whaling out Pat Benatar’s ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot‘. He does some fantastic voice-over work for animated productions. Remember the 6-episode of the animated version to ‘Clerks‘? Chances are if you’ve seen that, you’ve heard Cranston’s voice ( you also understand Jay’s saying “we steal monkeys all the time!” in a later film), but I digress. PLUS!!!  Don’t forget that he’s a bad boy with the roller skates! Remember that episode in Malcolm where he had a big skate scene? That was really him doing it! He’s a renaissance man. The real deal. So it shouldn’t be such a surprise that after Cranston wrapped with ‘Breaking Bad’ that he went straight to Broadway.

Disney Takes Flight With Dumbo as Live-Action Film!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 8th, 2014

Hi all, Jana here,

dumbo

 

I love a good Disney movie. I still watch Disney cartoons under the guise of “my kids want to watch it”, no one buys this anymore, it just makes me feel a little less like a 7 year old if I pass it off as the kids. Like anything,  there are favorites and then you have those not-so-favorites that you watch only if you have to and you’re going to stare at the top corner of the screen to try and keep from crying. ‘Dumbo‘ falls into that category for me. It has it’s good points, a drunk mouse is ALWAYS hysterical, but the whole separating Dumbo from his mom is just mean. I get it, there has to be an event that moves the story forward and apparently this heart-crushingly brutal scene is vital. I can’t listen to Alison Krauss sing ‘Baby Mine‘ as that is enough to send the water-works into a permanent and soul-crushing on position.

FILM REVIEW: ‘CHEAP THRILLS’!!

Justin C. here…

It’s an age-old question—“How much money would it take to get you to [fill in the blank]?”—, the idea being that every man, woman, and child have a breaking point, where the pay-off is simply too good to pass up.

For all intents and purposes, the filmmakers behind the movie Cheap Thrills ask the same question, but they’ve put their own unique spin on it. Not only do they want to know how much it’s going to cost but what you’re willing to do to prevent your competitor from accomplishing the task first. Read the rest of this entry »

This is not a review; this is a plea.

As of this posting, the Rotten Tomatoes score for X-Men: Days of Future Past is holding strong at 92%.

FILM REVIEW: ‘COHERENCE’!!!

Certain movies defy traditional review.

It has nothing to do with ambivalence on the part of the reviewer but rather a desire to maintain a spoiler-free experience for moviegoers yet to come. In a time when Hollywood seems hell-bent on telling the same story and over again—practically requiring that any variation on theme be revealed in the trailer—, who am I to do damage to one of its few original, thought-provoking works by revealing too much?

Coherence is one such movie. Read the rest of this entry »

There’s a popular brand of snack food on the market called Munchies. It contains pretzels, cheese curls, and two different kinds of chips. I like to believe that all four of these individual items are produced in the same giant factory, and at the end of the workday, whatever’s left on the floor gets swept up and bagged and voilà. A brand new product is born.

Rigor Mortis, a Hong Kong horror film hitting theaters on June 6th, is the cinematic equivalent of Munchies. Make no mistake; though it may contain things that you like, it’s largely made up of leftovers. Read the rest of this entry »

Director Charlie McDowell and writer Justin Lader are newcomers to the film world, and with their incredible movie ‘The One I Love‘, I expect big, bright futures for the both of them. I left the theater with a big smile on my face and couldn’t believe how much I enjoyed what I just saw on-screen. It took me back to the first time I saw my first ‘Twilight Zone‘ episode, and how much that transformed me into wanting to make movies and write mini-scripts with my dad’s old dinosaur video camera that sat on my small shoulder.

The Weinstein Company has purchased the big screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth from Studiocanal. The heart-breakingly gorgeous Michael Fassbender, younger Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto from X-Men: First Class and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is cast as the titular Macbeth. Marion Cotillard has signed on to play Lady Macbeth. Cotillard is fairly well known for playing Billie Frechette opposite Johnny Depp’s Dillinger in Public Enemies. She also recently, and most notably, played Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. I first realized her star power when I saw her Ridley Scott’s A Good Year playing opposite Russell Crowe.

Film Review: ‘Runner Runner’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

628x471

  Even the title is bad. ‘Runner Runner‘ might have looked good on paper and with director Brad Furman (‘The Lincoln Lawyer‘) hiring Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake, and Gemma Arterton in this online gambling thriller, you might be excited to see this movie. Fortunately for me, this was only 90 minutes. But it was a long 90 minutes of laughable, cheesy dialogue, zero note characters, and virtually non suspense, with the exception of a short scene with crocodiles. The setup is decent enough, but was poorly executed on all levels. I don’t expect this flop of a film to make any real money at the box office. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

fast_and_furious_6-wide

Universal’s biggest film franchise has hit number six with more than $1.5 billion in previous sales. And it looks like this new sequel/prequel will even push that amount further into another billion, despite its awful dialogue and numerous over-the-top, zany action sequences, which seems to make the audience laugh more often than cause suspense. That being said, this film does deliver what the audience has wanted since the first film. That is all of the original actors are back this time, which includes Michelle Rodriguez. I have no doubt this will score big at the box office. At least Universal seems to think so, as they have already greenlit part 7, which will be released next July and promises more stars and bigger action.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Trouble With The Curve’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Trouble With The Curve’ is one of the cheesiest films I have seen in recent memory.  If this film were a burger, it would be a triple cheese burger with a side of cheese fries. That’s not to say that it doesn’t have moments of good.  It does, but ‘Trouble With The Curve’ tries to force feed you what you should be feeling and thinking at every moment.  Even with its amazing cast and baseball trivia, ‘Trouble With The Curve’ never slid into home plate to win the game.  Yes, I know that was cheesy, but then, that’s how I felt watching ‘Trouble With The Curve’.

Bryan Reviews ‘That’s My Boy’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all still love Adam Sandler.  He gave us great characters in Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and his many iconic roles on Saturday Night Live.  But at some point, Sandler started making lazy, unfunny, and obnoxious films and characters.  It made me not want to see any of his films.  There were a few brief moments of greatness from him over the past several years in his more dramatic roles, but when it came to his comedies, Sandler and his films have become a joke.  His last film, ‘Jack and Jill’ was one of the worst films to come out in the last twenty years, with his previous comedies not too far off from that.  That being said, Sandler’s ‘That’s My Boy’ is his welcome back party. A welcome back to the great comedic genius he was once known for.

Bryan’s ‘L!fe Happens’ Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 12th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘L!fe Happens’ tries so hard to be a warm hearted movie that will make you laugh and feel for its characters all throughout the movie.  But due to its lack of likability of characters, and its really poor and laughable dialogue, ‘L!fe Happens’ plays out more like a 3rd rate series on Lifetime more than the funny, heartwarming, and vulgar humor type of film it wants to be.  And it’s terribly sad, because the cast of this film is amazing.  I like the cast of actors in this movie, but they were given a terrible script and nothing was executed to make me laugh or feel anything for its characters or story.

From the beginning of L!fe Happens, we know this film is going to be a bit bawdier than the usual chick flick , as best friends Kim (Krysten Ritter) and Deena (Kate Bosworth) frantically decide who gets to use the last condom in the house. Fast-forward many months later and we find the pair flirting with guys in the car next to them only to be thwarted by baby buzz kill, Krysten’s consolation prize for losing use of the condom. From here the audience is taken on the expected journey of Krysten growing into single-motherhood, looking for love, and holding onto a changing friendship.

The ‘Resurrect Dead’ Trailer is Live!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 18th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Strangeness is afoot. Most people don’t notice the hundreds of cryptic tiled messages about resurrecting the dead that have been appearing in city streets over the past three decades. But Justin Duerr does. For years, finding an answer to this long-standing urban mystery has been his obsession. He has been collecting clues that the tiler has embedded in the streets of major cities across the U.S. and South America. But as Justin starts piecing together key events of the past he finds a story that is more surreal than he imagined, and one that hits disturbingly close to home. — (C) Official Site

Hi Bryan Here….

The sequel to the hit comedy ‘The Hangover’ is out in all theaters and is definitely funny, but with a price.  I know most of you have seen the sequel already and yes I am late getting this review out, but I have had tons of things going on.  But alas, the review is here.  First thing to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that you will most definitely laugh wildly all the way through the film.  The second thing you need to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that it is the exact same film as the first ‘Hangover’ movie to a tee, except it takes place in Thailand rather than Vegas.

Director Duncan Jones Might Helm Wolverine Sequel!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 12th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Seems like the rumor mill is in full force in that director Duncan Jones (Moon, The Source Code) is having meetings about directing the Wolverine sequel.  At one point it was going to be Darren Aronofsky, but he pulled out at the last minute, so now the crew is trying to find someone quickly.  It doesn’t seem like Duncan Jones would want to take the project on meaning it doesn’t look like his cup of tea.  I feel he would want to make his own super hero film by creating a new one and not be tied down by Marvel or the big studio execs on ever single frame.   Who knows?  But our fellow contributor Joel, has a little something to say about this matter below.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Master of Voodoo: Rise of the Dead

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2010

One of my good friends Justin Cline has written a book called “Master of Voodoo: Rise of the Dead”.  It is available only for download for your kindle.  I look forward to reading this.  It looks awesome.  It is from Actionopolis which gives this description of the book:

“Against his mother’s wishes, Gibson Cross secretly meets his great grandmother Evangeline, who informs him of his long family history with voodoo.  He has inherited the ability to communicate with the Lwa, immortal spirits capable of giving him otherworldly powers to use for good.  But when the forces of black magic kidnap his family, Gibson must use these untested powers and team up with his brilliant young friend, Rav Wallace, to not only save Gibson’s parents and young sister but their entire town as well.”

If you have the ability to download this book, do it.  Buy it and download it HERE.
