Dan Moran’s Favorite Films of 2019!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2020

Dan Moran’s Favorite Movies This Year (in no order):

This is one of the most powerful movie experiences I had this year. An amazing cast anchored by two young newcomers in Taylor Russell & Kelvin Harrison showcase a whirlwind of emotion as a family in Florida deals with unspeakable tragedies and how they cope moving forward.

LITTLE WOMEN (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2019

One hundred and fifty years may have passed since Louisa May Alcott’s autobiographical enchanter Little Women was written, but it continues to remain relevant through countless retellings on screen and on stage. In total, three adaptations of this coming-of-age drama have been filmed, yet none quite captured the sentimentality and sensibility of the novel like Gillian Armstrong’s Little Women (1994) —until now. With a rich trajectory of colors, lavish production designs and a skilled cast of personalities, Greta Gerwig’sLittle Women’ is a delightful awakening of an American classic.

Edward Zwick Interview on ‘Trial by Fire’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2019

I had the distinct pleasure to talk with filmmaker Edward Zwick about his new motion picture ‘Trial by Fire‘, amongst other aspects of his career. ‘Trial by Fire‘ is Zwick’s newest film about the true crime story about the Texas State Prisoner Execution of Cameron Todd Willingham some years ago. The film stars Jack O’Connell and Laura Dern and follows the story of a father who escaped a home fire alive, but his two young kids were burned alive inside.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

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

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

Film Review: ‘The Founder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Beka P., here….

the-founder-movie-2016-trailer-michael-keaton

As a lawyer, one of the first things they teach you is to always put things in writing. As a criminal lawyer, one of the first things I tell people is never put things in writing. ‘The Founder‘ is a lesson in contracts and how as Roy Kroc says, “Contracts are like hearts, they were made to be broken.” This film explores the story of how McDonalds became more than just a local burger joint- exploding onto the map as a nationwide franchise. Quite honestly, it was darker than I expected, and cast a bit of a cloud on the French fried potato goodness that is Micky D’s, but I suppose that when you pull back the curtain and expose the inner workings of any organization, you are bound to find a few skeletons in the closet.

Woody Harrelson is ‘Wilson’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 18th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-01-18 at 3.18.19 PM

Woody Harrelson is having a few big years and for good reason. The guy is just genuinely likable and a badass. His next big film is called ‘Wilson‘ and will premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. ‘Wilson‘ is directed by Craig Johnson (‘Skeleton Twins‘), written by Daniel Clowes (‘Art School Confidential‘, ‘Ghost World‘), and produced by Alexander Payne (‘Election‘, ‘Sideways‘, ‘About Schmidt‘, ‘The Descendants‘, ‘Nebraska‘). Need I say, “HOLY SHIT”, what a cast and crew already. If that weren’t enough, you can add Laura Dern, Judy Greer, and Cheryl Hines to the cast as well. Fox Searchlight now has a trailer and new poster for the film, which looks excellent.

Film Review: ‘Certain Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2016

Violet O, here…

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-5-40-54-pm

Certain Women‘ opened on a very long, mostly silent, incredibly slow scene of a train traveling the countryside. Unfortunately, this proved to be the pace of action and level of excitement throughout the entire 107min film. This movie attempts to tell three completely unrelated stories of three different women (Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Lily Gladstone) living in rural Montana. The only commonality that I could find between these stories is their lack of direction and level of awkwardness.

Hey guys, Jana here,

jurassic-world-movie-trailer-previews

It was no surprise that off the back of the success of ‘Jurassic World‘, that a sequel would be an automatic given. Now that sequel has a director signed on for his chance to bring a little pre-historic terror to the world. J.A. Bayona (‘The Impossible‘) has had his name mentioned more than a few times since he bowed out of the running for ‘World War Z 2′ last year, but it’s now finalized.

Film Review: ‘Bravetown’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 8th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

bf425bc70d2f7185a39713d7ce7f92ff6c7cff3e

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: a troubled, angsty teen gets in trouble and is sent off to live with their dad in middle-of-nowhere, USA. Once there, the teen develops an independent identity, meets a sparkly vampire, and Indian werewolf…ok, that last part might be inaccurate, but you get the idea. Bravetown doesn’t provide anything you haven’t seen in dozens of other movies, what sets it apart, however, is that it manages to rip off its predecessors in the most bland way possible.
