4K UHD Review: ‘Kick-Ass’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2017

THE FILM


Back in 2008, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. created a new comic book that was kick-ass, that they in fact named it ‘Kick-Ass‘. It was basically Spider-Man if Spider-Man had no superpowers and was had a hardcore R rating. The amount of creative energy, violence, comedy, and character development that went into the comic was magical as it was entertaining and wonderful. Millar just had a way with words and story plot that made this comic book called ‘Kick-Ass‘ solid gold. It was to nobody’s surprise that only two years later, we got a feature film directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and produced by Brad Pitt, that ignited a new breed of R rated superhero films.

There’s a New Kick-Ass Coming & She Will Slay!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Kick-Ass-The-New-Girl_1200_1802_81_s

Clear the way, nerdy, white guys, there’s a new superhero in town! She goes by the name of ‘Kick-Ass‘! I know, you’re thinking this can’t be, we know who Kick-Ass is and he’s a nerdy, white guy! Creator of the comic, Mark Millar is changing up the inhabitants of the world he created for Kick-Ass and assigning a new character to don the green suit. All we know about her is she’s African American and she’s a she.

Is There a ‘Kick-Ass’ 3 In The Works?!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 11th, 2014

Hey fanboys and girls, Jana here,

 

 

MV5BMTMzNzEzMDYxM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTc0NTMxMw@@._V1_SX640_SY720_

 

You may be asking yourself what is in the future for ‘Kick-Ass‘. Let me fill you in on the latest. When Mark Millar, the creator of the comic books the movies are based on, he’s not sure either. The freshman offering from the Kick-Ass universe took fans by storm and surprise. I can’t even count the number of times I’ve re-watched the movie, punched the air in victory or sat in shock watching the death of Big Daddy. Hit Girl is my personal favorite and I’ve tried telling my son numerous times that if he finds a girlfriend one day like her, I’ll be happy.

The film made stars out of relatively no-name actors Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Chloe Grace Moretz and moved them up to major players in the acting world from the bit parts they had been accepting. The budget for ‘Kick-Ass’ was a trifling $28 million dollars but brought $100 million at box offices and earned another $140 million in DVD sales. This kind of revenue would make any production company eager to sign on for a sequel and that’s what happened.

Hi, Bryan Here…

theraid2_large

If you haven’t seen the first ‘Raid‘ movie yet, please find it, purchase it, and watch it, for you will have your socks blown off on just how amazing and entertaining it is. It literally is non-stop action with some of the coolest fight scenes ever filmed. We’ve told you before that there was a sequel to this coming out, and that this sequel literally takes place two hours after the events of the first film, which is INSANE!! So here is a great trailer that will fulfill your hopes and dreams that this sequel will be just as badass as the first film. Enjoy the trailer.

Film Review: ‘Kick-Ass 2’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

kick-ass-2-movie-review-08142013-154101

And we’re back with a sequel to Mark Millar’s ultra-violent real-life superhero story with ‘Kick-Ass 2‘, based on the comic series of the same name. This highly entertaining sequel amps everything up to eleven (if you can believe that) from their first outing on every level possible. From the characters, to the violence, to the story, everything is toned up, bloodied, and kicks into high gear as Jeff Wadlow replaces Matthew Vaughn as director this time around. This sequel delivers the goods for fans of the first film and comic series and much more, with a high expectation at the box office.

At San Diego Comic Con, a new ‘Kick-Ass 2‘ trailer was unveiled which runs just under five minutes in length. And if you were worried about it being less violent and bloody than the first film, than think again. This might be the most hardcore movie all year, judging by this trailer. Director Jeff Wadlow said, “We put these characters through a meat grinder in this one.”

I’ve been eagerly awaiting the sequel to ‘Kick-Ass‘ since when I watched the end credits for the first time of the original film. Aaron Johnson, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse all will return for the sequel along with Jim Carrey. Jeff Wadlow, who directed ‘Cry Wolf‘ is directing this venture, which I hope is as good as the first one.

***END OF UPDATE***

Universal is trying to sign Jim Carrey to play a big supporting role in the upcoming Kick-Ass sequel titled ‘Kick-Ass 2: Balls to The Wall’.  Jeff Wadlow will be replacing Matthew Vaughn as director, which I don’t think is the best idea.  But I have hope.

Kick-Ass 2 Is Gonna Happen

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 31st, 2010

If you have not seen the impressive movie Kick-Ass then head HERE and purchase this film.  It is one of the better super-hero movies to ever come out.  EVER.  If you have not read the comic then head HERE and check them out.

According to Mark Millar (the creator of Kick-Ass), the sequel is read to be made and will start production in about nine months.  That is such joyful news to me.

Mark said in an interview that Kick-Ass 2 will take off right where the first one left off.  So you know how Dave (Kick-Ass) has inspired others to become super heroes and fight crime?  Well Red Mist has done the same thing but for people to become villains.  Think about that.  Let it marinate.  That’s right.  Two huge groups or gangs forming alliances in New York.  Oh the carnage it will have.

The title will be “Kick-Ass 2: Balls to the Wall”

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

The Avengers are back and they’ve brought a few friends. The next installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe  packs the star-power in like gunpowder to a bomb making it ready to ignite a powder keg of awesome to kick off the summer. The usual suspects have all returned, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey, Jr., and Jeremy Renner. But there is room for more awesome, and we get it with the addition of Karen Gillan, Chris Pratt, Pom Klementieff, and Zoe Saldana from ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, Benedict Cumberbatch as Doctor Strange, Tom Holland’s Peter Parker and far too many to mention to round out one kick-ass movie, or at least that’s what the trailer leads us to expect. We can’t forget to mention that Josh Brolin’s Thanos is back and will stop at nothing to get what he wants, the Infinity Stones.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Matthew Vaughn is back in the director’s chair with ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘, the sequel to the hit 2015 action-comedy film that made over $414 million. The ‘Kingsman’ story line was originally written in comic book form from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and follows a super secret British spy service that protects the world from various threats. It’s like James Bond, but more fun, more violent, and with more laughs. With sequels, especially in the action world, the words “bigger, better, faster” are usually used everyday on set, in an attempt to out-do the previous movie. That can mostly be said for this sequel too, but with The Golden Circle – – it all works.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Margot Robbie and director David Ayer are back together, the last time this happened, the world received ‘Suicide Squad‘. The next venture is even more of a daunting task, and that is ‘Gotham City Sirens‘. I’ll assume that not everyone eats, sleeps and breathes DC comics and I’ll slow it down. DC is the comic book world I prefer to live in, I like dark, deep, broody, melancholy atmospheres, and I’m not entirely certain the sun ever hits the center of Gotham City, but I’m ok with that. Marvel is too bright and flashy and, just not me.

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‘.

Film Review: ‘Eddie The Eagle’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2016-02-25 at 9.18.06 PM

Underdog stories are almost always fun. From ‘Miracle‘ to ‘Rocky‘ to even ‘Little Giants‘, these stories of regular people, who you normally wouldn’t pick for a sports team, prove that they have enough heart, guts, blood, and spirit to give it a real shot and make it to the top. Some of these films and television shows we’ve seen that have portrayed the ‘underdog’ scenario have been based on real people and real events, such as this one, ‘Eddie the Eagle‘. If you grew up during the 1980s, you might remember hearing about ‘Eddie the Eagle‘, who was a British Olympic ski jumper at the Calgary 1988 Olympics.

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ has received a new MPAA rating, this time as an R rating. No, this is NOT for the theatrical version, but rather as an option for the home video under the title “Ultimate Edition” when it completes its theatrical run. It’s disappointing that we won’t get to see that kind of violence on the big-screen, though.

Bryan Kluger’s Best/Worst of 2015!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

1140-mfg-2015-Readers-Choice-Best-Movie-poll-collage-promo.imgcache.rev1449178940055.web.722.414

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Film Review: ‘American Ultra’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

american-ultra-jesse-eisenberg-600x414

This late summer movie ‘American Ultra‘ mixes a good stoner comedy with high octane action with a great cast and some decent laughs throughout. You can add to that a good amount of bloody violence in the second half of things. That all being said, ‘American Ultra‘ seems to lose its steam far from the climax of the movie, and seems to just go through the motions until the end. Still, it’s a fun popcorn film to end the summer on. Director Nima Nourizadeh, whose only previous film was the found footage party movie, ‘Project X‘, leaves the handheld camera on the table here, and delivers some decent long shots of violence and action, which is a step up in his career.

There are a lot of good movies out there. Hell, there are even some damn near perfect ones, but there are only a small handful of films that fall into the legendary category. These films that have become legend only come around once in a blue moon, but when they do, they tend to hit an emotional cord and stick around forever. I’m sure we can talk for days about what movies fall into this category, but there is one film in particular that definitely belongs here, and I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts that you’ve never even heard of it, nor seen it. Reason being, is that I’m talking about a home movie here. That’s right, a home movie.

Walt Disney Pictures has selected the next story up for the live-action remake with ‘Mulan‘. The company has been hell bent on taking successful animated stories, blowing up the fantasy worlds they live in, including the already larger-than-life villains, then dropping the wide-eyed hero into the setting and let the story unfold. This is a pretty cool idea, however Disney has yet to pull a live-action crossover out of their hat that was better than it’s animated mirror.  Read the rest of this entry »

Hello ladies! Look at your man, now back to me – whoops, sorry about that. As you know, it’s Valentine’s Day once again. And as this overly-commercialized excuse for a holiday rears its ugly head, we take a reflective look back at our lives and at the choices we’ve made concerning our relationships. Some of you will realize that maybe the gap-toothed ex-con biker named “Bubba” might not have been the best choice for a mate (“but he’s a real sweetheart once you get to know him!”). Unfortunately, now you’re “in like Flynn” with his whole clique, and before you know it, you’re drinking homemade moonshine with the rest of his recently released buddies in the middle of backwoods nowhere (if you hear banjos – run). That isn’t to say that everyone makes bad decisions. Some women seem to have a gift for finding the right people to surround themselves with – or have a real knack for how to handle the bad apples that come along – and that can make all the difference between a smooth sailing adventure and a total train wreck experience.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

I can officially say that the first AWESOME, kick-ass movie of 2015 is finally here, which is ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service‘. Based on Mark Millar’s (Kick-Ass) comic book, director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake, Snatch) has once again delivered the goods and high entertainment value with an homage to spy films, particularly the ‘James Bond‘ franchise. So what’s that mean? It means the guy who made ‘Kick-Ass‘ and produced ‘Snatch‘, made his own version of ‘James Bond‘, and it’s as violent and gory and funny as his other films I mentioned.

Top 10 Horribly Cheesy Scenes in Otherwise Decent Movies!!

Paul N., Here…

DirtyDancing3-lg

I am not claiming that all of the following movies are cinematic works of art. Some of these films might be considered mediocre at best. However, they do all have one thing in common; all of them suffer from having that one scene that takes audiences out of the moment and makes them groan in disbelief.  This list includes movies that were meant to be taken seriously. So over-the-top comedies and machismo action flicks will not be found as they are created with the intent of being ridiculous.

A superhero doesn’t have to live on the pages of Marvel or DC comics, either. Sometimes they present themselves in the pages of novels. This is what Katniss Everdeen did. We saw the injustice, heard the call of the Mockingjay and rallied to her side. Give us a villainous President Snow to rail against and we are all in!

The trailer just dropped on ‘The Equalizer‘. It gave me goosebumps watching this small clip of what HAS got to be an excellent movie! It conjured up feelings of Michael Caine in ‘Harry Brown‘ or Gerard Butler in ‘Law Abiding Citizen‘.

 What do you do when a Marvel movie flops with a more deafening thud than Crystal Pepsi? You re-tool it, sell it to Netflix where it becomes an episodic challenge. Where the feature film had big budgets and big stars to it’s credit, this series is going to attempt to make more out of less. Daredevil fans everywhere will have an opinion on what they expect from the new show. My expectations for this show is that it NOT suck. Not asking much, just the lack of major suckage.

Film Review: ‘Only Lovers Left Alive’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

in-only-lovers-left-alive-001

If all the Emo and Hipster kids got together and made a vampire film, it would probably play out a bit like ‘Only Lovers Left Alive‘, which has an excellent soundtrack, moody vampires who hate everything but new underground music, and talk about how much they hate everything. It gets old very fast. But instead of the Emo and Hipster kids, we got famed director Jim Jarmusch who directed ‘Down By Law‘,’ Ghost Dog: Way of The Samurai‘, ‘Coffee and Cigarettes‘, and ‘ Dead Man‘, and ‘Broken Flowers‘ to name a few – not exactly a light-weight. Jarmusch is an acquired taste like a fine 40-year old scotch, where not all people have developed a taste for the director, but those with exquisite taste love his work. I consider myself the latter. But once in a while, some of our favorite directors make a movie that is ultimately forgettable and doesn’t live up to the filmmaker’s past work. And that is where I stand with Jarmusch’s vampire film ‘Only Lovers Left Alive‘.

Fox has picked up ‘Superior‘, which is the limited series comic book written by Mark Millar (Wanted, X-Men: First Class, and Kick-Ass) and drawn by Leinil Francis Yu, who has basically drawn something for every comic you’ve ever heard of. This adaptation will be produced by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Kick-Ass).

Hi, Bryan Here…

Nicolas Cage gun Kick-Ass

The movie is written by Cabezas and centers around a man named Marty ‘The Mule’ (Cage), who is just released from prison after being set up but his former boss named Frank, a local small-time crook.

Now Marty is a free man and hell-bent on revenge.

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?”

This new poster below is all sorts of kick-ass.  It features the beautiful Sofia Vergara as the deadly Desdemona which looks like she has a unique skill. I loved the original one, and I know we live in a perfect world when ‘Machete‘ gets two films. The cast includes: Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez, Sofia Vergara, Amber Heard, Charlie Sheen, Lady Gaga, Antonio Banderas, Jessica Alba, Demián Bichir, Alexa Vega, Vanessa Hudgens, Cuba Gooding, Jr., William Sadler, Marko Zaror and Mel Gibson.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Wreck It Ralph’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

71ftUaLkCGL._AA1015_

Wreck-It Ralph‘ is one hell of a fun and entertaining movie. Not only will the little kids enjoy this, but adults will eat this up too.  Disney has done a a great job with their 3D animated comedy to start the holiday season.  The amazing voice cast, the video game references, the characters and storyline can all compete with the likes of any Pixar film.  Well, I guess you can get a phenomenal film when you have John Lasseter executive produce and Rich Moore direct.  Moore has directed tons of episodes of ‘The Simpsons’ and just about every episode of ‘Futurama’, so you know this will be a funny and intelligent film done right.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Godzilla-poster-new

As we’ve reported before, Frank Darabont is hard at work, writing the ‘Godzilla‘ reboot as the studio is rounding out its cast. Last time we checked in, Aaron Johnson (‘Kick-Ass‘) was the top choice to star in the giant lizard remake. However now, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen are being courted to co-star in what seems to be an actual decent project of the iconic monster.

Did you See That ‘Under the Dome’ Promo??

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 4th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 under-the-dome-640x386

Last night’s Super Bowl was very interesting. It was a decent game, but the commercials were sub-par this year with the exception of maybe one or two, and the half-time show with Beyonce was one of the fucking worst things I’ve ever seen or heard. However, the movie trailers were kick-ass, so there’s that. However, one promo had me very giddy.  I’m of course talking about the creepy and interesting trailer for Stephen King’s novel ‘Under The Dome‘. Yes, they are making that into a series, and I can’t wait.

Bryan Reviews Oliver Stone’s ‘Savages’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

After a few years of getting a softer side of Oliver Stone, Savages brings the director back to his ultra violent, drug induced, sex crazed, and savage side.  Based on Don Winslow’s novel, Savages tells an intense tale of drugs, sex, and betrayal.  I really missed this side of Oliver Stone.  I’ve been hoping for a film that can be put in the same cookie jar as Natural Born Killers, Platoon, and U Turn.  Instead, we have received films like Wall Street 2: Electric Boogaloo, W., and World Trade Center.  By far not his best work nor interesting.  So the big question is, “Did Oliver Stone deliver the goods on his return to a more sadistic film?”

MGM Offers Iconic ‘Carrie’ Role to Chloe Moretz!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

It looks like actress Chloe Moretz (Kick-Ass/Hugo) will be taking on the iconic role of ‘Carrie’ in the remake by Kim Pierce.  The decision was made after a group of actresses sat down for a table read and Chloe did so well, they formally offered her the role today.  ‘Carrie’ is a remake of the Brian De Palma version based on the 1974 Stephen King novel of the same name.

Bryan’s Top 10 Films of 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

We’re here at that time again.  The end of the year.  And thus, here is my list of my top 10 movies of 2011.  Now these are films I saw in the theatre or at home that came out in the year 2011.  I have seen several films already that won’t come out until 2012, but those will have to wait till next year at this time.  There were tons of great films that came out this year.  It was a hard year to narrow down.  I usually pick my top 10, by going through the entire list of releases throughout the entire year and then writing all the ones  really liked down.  Then the narrowing process begins.  Now my Top 10 list will probably be way different then most others you will see.  I tend to chose films for my list that I thoroughly enjoy time and time again rather than ones that might win awards at the big shows.  Without further delay here is my Top 10 films for 2011.

Hi Bryan Here….

Again, how awesome is it that Disney is releasing foreign films in the sci-fi fantasy genre?  It’s kick-ass I tell you.  This film, ‘Once Upon a Warrior’ is pretty epic if I may say so.  First off the film is a little on the hardcore side and is over two hours long.  So you know there is definite story and character development in this film for kids.  The visuals are fantastic and the special FX are almost top notch.  I was surprised on how crazy cool this film was.

I still haven’t had a chance to see this yet, but I have been hearing great things.  It really seems like they did this X-Men film right.  If only they got director Matthew Vaughn to direct ‘X3’.  But so far, people are saying this is right at the top with the best superhero films out there and one of the most satisfying films of the year.  Can’t wait to see it.  Enjoy FedMex’s review below.

Chloe Moretz Takes on Emily The Strange

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 23rd, 2010

Chloe Moretz is becoming, scratch that, is one of the coolest new teen actors. With roles like Hit Girl in Kick-Ass, and Abby the Vampire in “Let Me In” to just a name a couple. Now she will play comic book character, Emily the Strange.

Universal Pictures has acquired rights to the Dark Horse comic Emily The Strange, and Moretz is attached to play the title role of the odd but stylish young lady.

Pic will be produced by Dark Horse’s Mike Richardson, and Reger will be exec producer along with Keith Goldberg.

“When I first met Chloe I knew I found my Emily,” Reger said. “She really identifies and understands the character, and has what it takes to bring her to life.”

Mark Millar Directs His First Film

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2010

Mark Millar is a name to etch in your brain from now on.  He is the one responsible for bringing us “Kick-Ass”.  He has also written comics such as “The Authority”, “The Ultimates”, “Wanted”, and “Civil War” to just name a few.  He has definitely proved himself to be one of the better writers out there.  And now he is hard at work this very minute on his directorial debut with  a movie called “Miracle Park”.  It will be a superhero thriller.   He also says it will be a cross between “Trainspotting” and  “X-Men”.

Millar said in an interview: “…we’re trying to do a superhero movie with the sensibilities of Paranormal activities and Cloverfield. It’s low budget mostly shot on a handheld camera dealing with superpowers…it is set in the suburbs of Scotland so it feels like Trainspotting meets X-Men.”

“Set in contemporary Scotland, this dark, unique superhero story focuses on a group of animal rights activists who break into a low-level research laboratory to find a mile-long underground base owned and facilitated by the US government…Miracle Park breaks all the taboos of superhero cinema and offers a completely new take on the genre…The movie is shot entirely on a hand-held camera, establishing a tone more consistent with Paranormal Activity or The Last Exorcism than a traditional superhero release.”

“Miracle Park is chilling, violent and a totally new experience in cinema. Miracle Park starts where other superhero movies draw the line.”

Millar hopes to get a trailer out be January.  So far Millar can do no wrong.

“Super” Footage from James Gunn

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 12th, 2010

James Gunn has been hard at work for quite some time on his new film entitles “SUPER”.  It is in the vein of the year’s movie “Kick-Ass”.  The film has a stellar cast including: Rainn Wilson (The Office) and Ellen Page (Juno) as the main characters with Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, Michael “The Rook” Rooker, Nathan Fillon (Firefly) and Linda Cardellini (Freaks and Geeks).

IMDB’s plot synopsis for this movie reads “After his wife falls under the influence of a drug dealer, an everyday guy transforms himself into Crimson Bolt, a superhero with the best intentions, though he lacks for heroic skills.”

Now James Gunn is no stranger to the super hero genre.  He made a little film several years back which I think is one of the funniest movies out there.  It is called “The Specials” and is about the 6th or 7th best super hero team in the world.  It has an all-star cast as well with Thomas Hayden Church (Sideways & Spider-man 3) and Rob Lowe to name a few.  Gunn went on to write the revamp of Dawn of the Dead and make the ever so popular movie “Slither”.

Super looks to be an amazing film and the reviews from the early screenings are stellar.  I am looking forward to this movie.  Check out the clip of Rainn Wilson and Ellen Page below.

Zombieland 2 Has Been Written

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2010

Since the opening of Zombieland it was clear that a sequel was going to be in the works.  The director Ruben Fleischer will be returning to direct and Rhett Reese and Paul Wenick were put to work to write the sequel.


Well they knocked out a first draft and it seems that the original cast will be back for another tale of Zombieland.  I just do not know yet on how much they will be in the film or if the film will follow another set of survivors.  Ruben also told the press that he might want to explore Zombieland further in the future and also show a few scenes before the outbreak hit.


Ruben is currently filming “30 Minutes or Less” and has got another deal to make a Buddy Action Cop movie for Dreamworks so Zombieland might be a few years away.  But I can breathe easy knowing that Zombieland 2 will happen.


Ruben said this to MTV: “What’s fun about the sequel is we have freedom and flexibility to show different periods. We might have scenes before the zombies, or we might have some months after, or potentially stuff further down the road. Through the voice-over and the way the movie is structured, we can really explore all different sides of it.  When it comes to 3-D, I feel pretty strongly that you should shoot it in camera,” he said. “I feel like it just looks so much better. If you’re going to make a 3-D movie, go ahead and make a 3-D movie. I would definitely, if we do  “Zombieland 2″, make it in 3-D and want to shoot it in 3-D.”

I wonder if in Zombieland 2 we will get another kick-ass cameo.  It is hard to beat Bill Murray.  It would be great if they ran into Bruce Campbell.

Record Store Purchase Reviews

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 30th, 2010

I recently went to Good Records on lower Greenville and found some excellent used vinyl and some new vinyl as well.  I got:

The Rolling Stones: Exile on Main St. (standard edition vinyl) – Remastered

This is a two vinyl set remastered on 180 gram vinyl.  It sounds PERFECT.  I haven’t heard this album in  a long time, and when I first put it on, it was like hearing for the first time all over again.  Every song sounded magical.  New even.

Ventilator Blues, Casino Boogie, Torn and Frayed, and Shine a Light are my favorites on this album.  Blues, Rock, R&B, and Country riddle this album all the way through.

Sadly with the standard edition of this vinyl there are no inserts of any kind and no mp3 free download.  I think for $40.00 that it should have included the download.  I also think that all new vinyl that comes out should include the free mp3 download of the album.  Sadly it does not work that way.  I also did not want to shell out the $250.00 for the mega super awesome edition of this vinyl yet.  Although it includes tons of other goodies.

I highly recommend this album.  I know all of you have heard it before, but the sounds of vinyl are far superior to any cd or mp3 you might listen to.  It is a breath taking experience.

This stand the test of time.

Queen: News of the World (Vinyl)

This was in the used vinyl section and I haven’t seen this album often on vinyl.

This album being released in the 1970’s seemed to be stepping towards the Punk scene rather than the later Queen list.

It starts out with two of Queen’s more recognized tracks of the stadium anthem “We Will Rock You” and “We are the Champions” and Mercury’s brutal “Get Down – Make Love” is just pure awesome.

Other notable tracks are the sounds of “Fight From the Inside” and “Who Needs You”.

This album definitely tells you why Queen and Mercury deserve to wear the crown of Rock n Roll royalty.

Oingo Boingo: Nothing to Fear

For a time in the 1980’s Oingo Boingo was right up there with top bands performing at the time.  Richard Elfman started this amazing trippy band in the vein of Frank Zappa and Spike Jonze performing unique synth and styles of ballet music and other foreign entities.  Richard Elfman passed on his duties to younger brother Danny Elfman who is known  for his many musical scores in movies, mostly in collaboration with Tim Burton Films and of course the Futrama theme.

If you know nothing about Oingo Boingo, this album is a good place to start.  There is not a bad or soft and weak song on this album.

Songs like “Reptiles and Samurai” or “Running on a Treadmill”, or even the great “Wild Sex in the Working Class” will instantly hook you into loving this eclectic band of the 80’s.

I wish I could have seen them perform live.

Sid & Nancy Soundtrack

Another gem from the used section, one I have not actually seen before.  The soundtrack to the infamous movie Sid & Nancy.

If you have not seen this movie, go out and see it.  It is a biopic of Sid Vicious, known as the bassist for the band The Sex Pistols.  Gary Oldman played Vicious.  An excellent film and look into the life of Sid and Girlfriend Nancy.

The soundtrack is kick-ass of course.  Joe Strummer, The Pogues, Circle Jerks, Pray for Rain, and John Cale perform on this excellent soundtrack.

A great find.

Prince and the Revolution/Kiss

Sometimes when you find Prince’s KISS on vinyl and it is a single, then you know it is going to be a good day.

Not only was it the single of KISS, but the extended version which I have never heard.  I quite liked it.  A couple of minutes added to the original makes room for more dancing.

On side B is Love or Money which is not great but not bad either.  Basically I just got this album for KISS.  Also, there is a picture of 1980’s movie starlet Jaime Gertz on the back cover. Or at least what looks like her.

Great find.

Galactic: ya-ka-may

If you have not heard of the band Galactic, then you should definitely treat yourself and pick up one of their albums.  Ya-ka-may is their most recent effort and it does not dissapoint.

You can describe Galactic as Funk rubbed with jazz and soaked in a New Orleans swamp and roasted with blues and sprinkled with hip/hop.

This is New Orleans based so you know this is top notch music making.

The biggest known guests are Irma Thomas, John Boutte, and Allen Toussaint who lend their talents to this album.

“Do It Again” and “Double It”are a couple of my favorite tracks on the album.

Ya-ka-may named after New Orleans street food mixes tons of musical styles that fits perfectly together.  This album is soulful, energizing, and most of al FUNKY.

Galactic is a must listen.
