Taylor Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2012

Taylor Here….

I was worried about Men in Black III.  Almost every minute of Men and Black II made me wish I’d snuck in a beer or six, and I don’t think I could take more disappointment from Will Smith.  I still haven’t fully forgiven him for Hancock. The third installment turned out to be about 1000% better than the second effort, chock full of witty one-liners, truly disgusting alien encounters, and a few good men who look damn fine in black suits and skinny ties.

FedMex Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 24th, 2012

FedMex Here…

When Men in Black came out in 1997, we got a very different and original script showcasing one of Hollywood’s most popular actors alongside one of Hollywood’s most respected actors as an elite group of government agents that keep aliens under control on Earth.  Five years later, someone slapped together a sequel that made no sense.  It featured a Jar-Jar Binks-like alien, and had us shaking our heads in disappointment.

Bryan Reviews ‘Men In Black 3’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was very apprehensive about seeing the third installment of ‘Men In Black’.  I really loved the first film back in 1997.  I was sixteen at the time and remembered how much fun the original film was and what magical characters and comedy it brought audiences worldwide.  Then came the second installment of Men In Black in 2002 which was dull, boring, dialed in, and lacked any real good memories or fun.  I thought that the franchise was done.  That is until I saw ‘Men In Black 3’.   ‘Men In Black 3’ easily makes us remember what we loved about the original film and brings back those elements and even improves on them.  I can see future  ‘Men In Black’ films in the future if they keep this good work up.

The New ‘Men In Black 3’ Trailer Looks Promising!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

While I wasn’t a huge fan of ‘Men In Black 2’, this third one actually looks good.  Josh Brolin does a spot on impression of Tommy Lee Jones.  See, Brolin will play a younger Tommy Lee Jones when Will Smith’s character goes back in time to save the world.  One question I have is since we are getting a third ‘Men In Black’ film, will we be getting a 3rd ‘Men In Black’ song by Will Smith?  Enjoy the trailer.

Hi Bryan Here…

Well the correct term is Monocycle, and yes they are a  real thing.  Here is an image from the new ‘Men in Black 3’ film where we see Will Smith and James Brolin riding one of the Mono Cycles.  From what I remember, Will Smith travels back in time and meets the younger version of Tommy Lee Jones played by Brolin.  I hope part 3 is better than 2.  And I must say…this monocycle looks very familiar.  What do you think?

We’ve Got Some Images From Men In Black 3!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 13th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Yes “Men In Black 3” is currently in production despite its horrific script problems of the last several months.  Director Barry Sonnenfeld is hard at work with Will Smith, Tommy Lee Jones, and Josh Brolin for an anticipated release in 2012.  The Daily Mail has the full story on the matter.

There is a new boss of Men in Black 3 and they are…..

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2010

Men in Black 3 starts shooting soon and there is a new cast mate that was added.  The great Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility and Love Actually) will lend her talent to the sequel.  She will be playing the new boss of MIB.  This was originally played by the great Rip Torn, but as recent months have shown, he has gone bat shit crazy, and the powers that will be think it is too risky to hire him.  Which they are right to do so.

I think Emma Thompson will be a great replacement and addition to this cast.

Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones will be returning as well as Barry Sonnenfeld to direct.

Add to that cast Josh Brolin and Jermaine Clement (Flight of the Conchords) and you got yourself one hell of a movie.  Brolin will play a younger Tommy Lee Jones character and Jermaine will be the villain of the movie.

Looking forward to this.

Reconstruction of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

There are three types of movies in this world for me; bad movies (which I may or may not enjoy because of or despite of their badness), good movies, and movies that annoy me.  Movies that annoy me are the ones I obsess over.

Movies that annoy me tend to be “close but no cigar” to a good movie. They annoy me, because I wish the film had gotten the cigar. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales is a movie that annoys the crap out of me.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales was intended to be a soft reboot of the series. It was supposed to introduce new characters in a similar environment and allow the series to have a “fresh start.”  The film had absolutely everything it needed to accomplish this task. Instead, the movie is a jammed pack, convoluted, dragging two-hour film.

Blu-ray Review: Black Panther!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

THE FILM


Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

Dan Moran’s ‘Black Panther’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

Admittedly, the easiest narrative for Black Panther reviews is that it is a “game-changer”, “important”, “redefines hero”, etc. Those narratives and feelings aren’t wrong. I think Black Panther is one of Marvel’s best stand-alone hero films. It is right behind The Winter Soldier and the original Iron Man for me. In a few years it may even eclipse those two as the distance and impact it has going forward is felt. I believe the cultural and racial themes of this film are well thought out, focused, bold, and sobering. To be perfectly honest I don’t feel comfortable writing about that aspect of the film in depth. I’m a 32 year old goofy white guy who is not a good enough writer to navigate that territory, plus I lack the experiences that would make my take worth reading. There are some incredible writers who have written on the overall cultural impact of (essentially) an all-black cast superhero film and I encourage all of you to seek those pieces out because they are worth your time. My review is going to focus on just how badass this movie is.

Top 10 Moments in the Marvel Cinematic Universe Thus Far!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2018

 

Black Panther is debuting very soon and in 3 short months, we will witness Infinity War on the big screen, which is the culmination of all 18 Marvel movies that came before it. I love the Marvel movies, at a minimum they get how to entertain and present their characters in the most appealing way possible. I’m sure that Black Panther will have an incredible moment or two and without a doubt the spectacle that Infinity War HAS to be will present us with some memorable scenes. Until then I figured I would share my 10 Favorite Moments from the MCU so far.

Film Review: ‘Pitch Perfect 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 21st, 2017

Listen up, pitches, this movie is the perfect swan song to this series, so get yourself to a theater ASAP and prepare to fall in love all over again with the ladies of Pitch Perfect. The third and final installment of the Pitch Perfect series can be viewed as a stand-alone, but honestly, you’re depriving yourself of the musical and comedic joy that are the first two films if you don’t watch the first two in advance. If you’ve been living under a rock for the last seven or so years, do yourself a favor and have a marathon, or you know, turn on TBS on any given weekend, and watch the first two. In my opinion this one is better than the second installment, so if you found yourself kind of disappointed last go around, this one puts you back on track.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #3!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Annie Hall + Diane Keaton + khakis

I love Woody Allen movies and I imagine there will be quite a number of scenes in this column from his films. The first one comes from Annie Hall though. This scene just speaks to me so much and I think it’s a perfect capture of two people who were once in love, but still want to be in each other’s lives, even if it can be a bit awkward. Finding something to talk about to pass the uncomfortable time, or seeing new things in your former significant other’s place that make you question what new things they’re into now that you’re gone is delightfully funny to watch.

Blu-ray Review: Orange is the New Black: Season 4!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-05-22 at 6.24.28 PM

THE SERIES

In the past, Orange is the New Black has developed a darkly comic and often tragic story with their series over the past few seasons, and this fourth season is no different, although it would seem things are more on the comedy side this time around than unhappy faces at the women’s prison. The show’s writers and producers can certainly weave current politics and social issues in to the show with ease in each character, but with season four, it seems like certain plot points are over-the-top.

4K UHD Review: 3:10 to Yuma!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Filmmaker James Mangold has certainly made a name for himself in the Western genre of cinema with the likes of 3:10 To Yuma and more recently Logan. The guy knows how to tell a thrilling story set in the old west as we’ve seen before. Prior to this 2007 version of the film, author Elmore Leonard (Jackie Brown, Get Shorty), wrote a short story, which was adapted into a 1957 film called 3:10 To Yuma. Mangold thought it would serve as a great remake in these modern times and he wasn’t wrong, while he added a few new story conflicts to this great 2007 version.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

20th Century Fox is now remaking ‘White Men Can’t Jump‘, which was the 1992 comedy hit that starred Wesley Snipes, Woody Harrelson, and Rosie Perez. The original film was about a couple of street basketball player hustlers, who team up to earn more money. The film was a big success, as it made $91 million. Kenya Barris, who is the creator of the ABC comedy show ‘Black-ish‘ will be teaming up with Los Angeles Clipper Blake Griffin and Carolina Panther Ryan Kalil to remake the film with Barris as the producer and writer of the film. Kalil and Griffin will serve as the other producers, according to THR.

THE FILM

It’s a damn shame that every action movie can’t be as good as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘. So many action films will try, but will ultimately fail for a variety of reasons. Pure action filmmaking and movies just don’t get better than this movie. ‘Fury Road‘ is a troubled story to say the least. Original creator George Miller who made the original three ‘Mad Max‘ films had the idea for this fourth installment back in 1998. That’s 17-years ago. This project wasn’t necessarily put on a hold shelf, but a few things had happened to delay the film from being made. From 9-11 to foreign policy, to Mel Gibson’s infamous arrest, there were a variety of things that prevented this movie from seeing the light of day.

In the world of reboots, ‘Predator‘ is a new one that can be put at the top of the list of “But why?” In all fairness, it’s labeled as both a reboot and a sequel, but it makes me happier to think about this film as a continuation of the first film. What the project does have going for it, is Shane Black has signed on to direct and Benicio Del Toro is eyeing the project to star.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

shane-jump

As I’m recovering from seven insane days of ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX., I’ve had time to reflect, contemplate, saturate, and regurgitate every I event I attended. I had my box of Booty O’s to make sure I wasn’t Booty thru the weekend, met some good people, watched some amazing matches, talked with some WWE Superstars, and lost my voice when Shane-O-Mac put his life on the line for the WWE Business. To quote a certain former WWE announcer, it was a slobberknocker of a week for sure that hit me in the solar plexus more times than I’d like to admit. WWE really did it up big this year for Wrestlemania 32. Not only did they put on several good shows, but they also broke records. There was over 101,000 people in attendance at AT&T Stadium for Wrestlemania 32, beating the previous record from Wrestlemania 3 by quite a bit. Not only that, ticket sales and merch sales were way up as well from previous years. It seems like WWE is growing exponentially with more and more fans tuning in every week. That’s a good thing. Instead of writing a recap of the entire weekend, I’ll give you some details of some of the cooler things I witnessed over the past week.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Lego Brickumentary’!

by Janet White on Jan 6th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A Lego Brickumentary

 

THE FILM

 

When you were a kid, which of your toys was limited only by your imagination?  Dolls?  Cars and fire engines?  Your Big Wheel? For many people, it was LEGOs.  If you could imagine it, with hard work and lots of LEGOs you could bring it to the third dimension.  A LEGO Brickumentary explores the origin, innovation, and longevity of this building block known around the world.  Guided by a trusty LEGO minifigure narrator (Jason Bateman), the film travels from the outer reaches of space to LEGO’s birthplace, Denmark.  What Ole Kirk Christiansen created started out as solid red blocks with small knobs to attach it to other blocks (“Clutch Power”) has evolved into translucent, motorized, and magnetic units available in a bevy of different colors.  Chock full of facts and awe-inspiring constructs, A LEGO Brickumentary reveals there is more to this block and its uses are infinite or are they?  For example, the name LEGO comes from the Danish word Leg Godt, which means “play well.”   Read the rest of this entry »

Hey guys, Jana here,

polaroid

Is anyone else sick of the remakes out there or is it just me? Based on the number of fans that trek to the local cineplex and plunk down heard-earned cash for a ticket to watch the new big thing which is just  remake of what the big thing was 20 years ago make me think I’m alone. Sometimes a remake comes along before it’s even 20 years old which just makes me all kinds of stabby. Especially when it’s done to such a well-made flick like ‘Memento‘. The directing juggernaut that is Christopher Nolan launched into Hollywood with this flick and it’s still a prime look at exemplary director skills. In a world of beating the same dead horse for movie ideas, this plot is fantastic in its originality, which may be one reason it’s been cherry-picked for a remake.

Film Review: ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

february

We’ve seen our fair share of demonic possession movies over the past several decades with some standing out in the spotlight and scaring us for years on end. Then there is the other side of this coin where these demonic possession movies fall very short from making any kind of sense other than to produce cheap scares. That brings us to the movie ‘February‘ or as it’s being called now ‘The Blackcoat’s Daughter‘, written and directed by Oz Perkins, who is more an actor than a director, this being his directorial debut.

Film Review: ‘Black Mass’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 8.01.58 PM

It’s okay to look at ‘Black Mass‘ as a distant sequel to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movies. Both have bad guys, wars, guns, monsters, and Johnny Depp. Maybe I’m reaching a bit there, but it’s still fun to think about them as distant cousins in movies. The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger has been told a lot, especially recently. If you’re unfamiliar with who Bulger is, he was one of the most vicious and heinous human beings to ever walk the planet. He was even the FBI’s Most Wanted man for more than a decade, as he spent most of his time in Boston as a mafia boss who committed murder amongst other things.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

This is more or less the same exact review as the 2D version of the film, which you can see here. The only difference here is there is an extra disc that sports the 3D version of the film. All of the extras, subtitles, audio presentations, and film itself are the exact same. And no, there is unfortunately not the fabled B&W version of the film here or on the 2D version. Maybe someday in the future we’ll get that, but if you want to read about the 3D presentation, skip down to the “VIDEO/AUDIO” section. Thank you and YES, this is a MUST-OWN!

13-Hours-Book-Cover

 

As Americans there are moments that made time stand still for our country. The attacks on September 11, 2001 crippled our spirits with the biggest sucker punch in history, and the attack on the American diplomatic compound and the nearby CIA Annex in Benghazi, Libya on the 11th anniversary of that horrid event, ripped that scar wide open. Some may see a film based on the events of that fateful night as a crass money-maker, I see the film as a remembrance and a warning to the future to never let this happen again.

by Gumbercules9000 on May 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

09-centipede.w529.h352.2x

I can’t believe we have a third film in ‘The Human Centipede‘ franchise. This is supposedly the final film, but I hope there will be others or director Tom Six will come back after a long hiatus and do a fourth film. If you are unaware of ‘The Human Centipede‘ films, allow me to give you a little background. The first film was more or less a straight horror film thru and thru. It had a psychopathic surgeon (Dieter Laser) who kidnapped a few twenty-somethings and sewed them ass to mouth as to form one long digestive track.

Film Review: ‘Black Souls’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

MV5BMTc1OTE0MjAzM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwOTIxODIzMjE@._V1__SX1214_SY854_

I must admit, I’m a sucker for Italian mafia movies. Maybe it’s because part of my family actually hails from Sicily and I’ve heard tons of stories, which I still can’t tell are true or not. The truth is though, we all know that Italy has more than a handful of crime families still operating and doing “business”. Needless to say, there is probably enough material and trues stories to keep making Italian mafia films well into the next century. But I must warn you, if you’re looking for something as violent and fun as ‘The Godfather‘ or ‘Goodfellas‘, this little film called ‘Black Souls‘ might disappoint, however it shouldn’t.

Bonus points if the stories are true, as in the case of Whitey Bulger.

As the TV world gears up to kick off a new season, the networks give us just enough of a tease to keep us on the hook and ensure we’re tuned in when the show premieres. This tease usually comes in the form of a trailer and ‘Orange Is The New Black‘ did not disappoint!

Angelic Heel happily reporting once more!

 

Wrestlemania (shown on the WWE Network for just $9.99)was an insane emotional roller coaster for the WWE Universe. We laughed, we cried, we cheered, we screamed and quite possible threw things at our televisions. The night was filled with an electricity that buzzed and intensified as the WWE Superstars and Divas gave us everything they had and more. Championships were on the line at the Showcase of the Immortals and surprises were abundant. How did the grand daddy of them all play out? Find out now!!

WWE: RAW 3/9/15 Recap: Never Ever Trust a Viper

by Angelic Heel on Mar 13th, 2015

 

open

Angelic Heel once again…

The road to Wrestlemania never looked so bleak as it does now for all those loyal members of the WWE Universe that have proudly Bought In. Pittsburgh, PA was the scene of one of the most brutal unjustified beatings I have witnessed. RAW came to us live from the Steel City and was filled with its typical hard hitting action and more Intercontinental Championship shenanigans, but it was all darkened by the actions of one man, Randy Orton. Want to know what happened?

Film Review: ‘Black or White’!!

la_ca_1201_black_or_white

A family has a mother, father, and maybe children, a standard definition of a family.  A family is a group of people who are related to each other, yet another definition.  Nowhere in either definition is a mention of color, right?  Since the beginning of time families have blended nationality, ethnicity, and race.  This fact doesn’t make the families any less bound.

Film Review: ‘Black Sea’!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

4075_D022_00093_R.jpg

Jude Law in a submarine movie, you say? Why yes please. I had only hoped that we would get Jude Law playing ‘Dom Hemingway‘ again here, talking about his private parts in such a way that it seems poetic, but unfortunately that’s not the case with his character or this film, titled ‘Black Sea‘. Director Kevin Macdonald has an impressive resume for sure, with films like ‘Marley‘ and ‘The Last King of Scotland‘ under his belt. Where those award winning films might have shown us something more on a serious level whether it be about a historical figure or brilliant musician, ‘Black Sea‘ tends to journey into the ludicrous realm on am adult ‘Hardy Boys‘ type of quest.

A tragedy occurs in China and a computer virus is recognized as the culprit.  The Chinese government immediately called in their cyber security expert, Captain Chen Dawai (Leehom Wang).  In the US, the CIA is working on the cyber attack, too.  Enters Agent Carol Barrett, not Carol Burnett, (the fabulous Viola Davis) which begins the China and US taskforce.  But who sent it?  Captain Dawai knows who will help him find the villain.  His former classmate, Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth), is a genius when it comes to code.  Unfortunately, Hathaway was locked up.  Can a deal be struck to catch the bad guy?

There is a new documentary that is currently being made called ‘Haunters‘, which is being made by Jon Schnitzer. This documentary looks all sorts of fun as it looks to be the ultimate look inside how some of the scariest Haunted Houses are made across the country. I’m not talking about real haunted houses. I’m talking about the fun Haunted Houses that we all go to during the Halloween season. Some are truly scary and some are fairly laughable. ‘Haunters‘ seems to dive into how each haunted house is made, along with the costumes, make up effects, digital effects, and actors who make a living, performing in these scary houses.

Shane Black Tackles ‘The Destroyer’ for Sony!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Shane-Black

 

Everyone has favorite directors or writers and Shane Black has been one of mine since I fell in love with his work in the late 80’s. The first character that took my breath away was Martin Riggs from ‘Lethal Weapon‘, he also wrote ‘The Monster Squad‘ and gave birth to the line that any true 80’s child will say when they hear that film name – “Wolfman’s got nards!”  That’s when I took note of Shane Black and thought he was an under-rated gem in the writing world. That was quickly followed up with ‘The Last Boyscout‘ and ‘Last Action Hero’ films that supported the original idea that Black was talented and the first films were NOT a fluke.  Black then proved his mettle as a director/writer with the snarky offering into the world of noir with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘. This was Robert Downey Jr’s love song to Hollywood that signified the turning point of his career from troubled actor, to serious phenomenon ready to be taken seriously. Black gave him the direction and the words and RDJ slammed the ball out of the park. Black’s latest foray into directing came from ‘Iron Man 3‘ when he re-teamed with RDJ. He has 3 other projects in the wind at the moment with ‘The Nice Guys‘ a ‘Predator‘ reboot and ‘Doc Savage‘.

Is ‘Bad Boys 3’ Heading Into Production?!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

badboys3-front

 

I can remember something specific about most movies I see. I remember being in high school when the first ‘Bad Boys‘ film came out. The biggest thing that sticks out in my mind though, is how freaking HOT Will Smith looked when he was running down the road and his shirt flew open and showed off his chest and abs, which looked marvelous! This is what stays in my mind when I hear the movie name. My kids are even aware that I have a favorite scene in the movie and which scene it is, and even why, much to their chagrin.

Remember the movie ‘Akeelah and the Bee‘? Akeelah is all grown up now and preparing to take her place on the Great White Way. Keke Palmer is a long way from where she began her career as a thespian and is watching her dreams come true in a whole new way, now. Palmer will be the title character in ‘Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella‘ bowing on September 9th at the Broadway Theatre. Not only is she the new lead for the show, but she takes precedence as the show’s first black Cinderella. Brandy held the same distinction when she wore the glass slippers in 1997’s TV Movie of the same name.

Gosling Crowe

Let’s play a little game called ‘A few of my favorite things’. That’s right – YOU get a car! You get a car and yes, YOU GET A CAR! OK, so not quite like that. You don’t have to worry about my stating anything  about “Raindrops on Roses”.  My list begins with Burt Reynolds’ laugh, Comic BooksBeethoven – Preferably Piano Sonata No. 8 ‘Pathetique’ in C minor, all 3 movements, Good music. Not just ‘eh’ kind of music, but GREAT music, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Harry Connick, Jr.,  and the amazing Shane Black’s movies.

Added into that list is cute boys that can sing. Russell Crowe happens to fit that bill. I’ve no idea if Ryan Gosling can sing or not, but he is fun to look at. Crowe and Gosling have signed on board for a police drama ‘The Nice Guys‘ with ‘Iron Man 3‘ director Shane Black putting his vision to film.

 Putting together a solid documentary takes more than cinematic skill. It takes a keen eye for detail and extensive knowledge of the subject matter. To put together a great documentary, one must have all these qualities as well as a deep passion for the subject at hand. With the skill of a seasoned filmmaker that belies his amateur status, first time filmmaker Ryan McGarry hits it out of the park on his first attempt with Code Black.

Steven Soderbergh’s (‘Magic Mike‘, ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘, ‘Sex, Lies & Videotape‘) 2009 film ‘The Girlfriend Experience‘ that starred then-porn-star Sasha Grey and Chris Santos has inspired what will become ‘The Girlfriend Experience‘, a 13-part anthology series Starz has just greenlit. Soderbergh  will work with Philip Fleishman to executive produce the half-hour series which will explore the relationships of the most exclusive courtesans who provide their clients with far more than just sex. These high-price call girls deliver far more than just sex, they offer the girlfriend experience (GFE). Clients wanting a GFE can afford to pay for the prices the service demands. As you would expect, the GFE calls for a more emotional connection than just sexually. These women talk, and genuinely listen, to their clients.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘300: Rise of an Empire’!!

THE FILM

You would think that by the look of ‘300: Rise of an Empire‘, the sequel to the 2006 hit film ’300′, director Zack Snyder had returned to make this film. Well, you’d be wrong as Noam Murro directed this, making this film his first feature film. But don’t worry, Snyder seemed to have a heavy hand and watchful eye over this film, as his handprints are all over this from his screenplay to the camerawork. It’s all here again in this prequel, side story, and sequel that features a lot of the same characters from the original. ’300′ cost $65 million to make back in 2006 and was largely made in front of a green screen. That film grossed over $457 million dollars.

I had the distinct honor and pleasure to sit down and talk with one of the best musicians and singers in the music business today – Black Joe Lewis.

Black Joe Lewis was formed in Austin, TX, and has been around for seven years and has released four albums so far, all of which are A++ work. He tears the roof off each place he plays at and leaves a lasting impression with his throaty vocals and excellent music.

If you haven’t seen the original film ‘Black Dynamite‘, you should highly consider taking a few hours from your weekend and watching it. It’s highly entertaining. From the big cult success of that film, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim picked up the storyline in the form of an animated series. Needless to say, the series was just as good as the film. Hell, the first episode had Black Dynamite fighting an evil version of The Jackson Five. The series will be available July 15, on Blu-ray and DVD and will Include the 10 First Season Episodes Plus  a Behind-The-Scenes Featurette, and an Original Pilot and Video Commentaries.

We can all agree that AMC’sMad Men‘ by Matthew Weiner is one of the finer shows to ever grace the small screen. And over the past several years, we have seen a variety of parodies based off this great show. Some have been comical to serious and smart, to low-budget, to down right silly. But we haven’t seen a top notch blaxploitation parody of ‘Mad Men‘ yet. Well that is until now. This might be the best parody I have ever seen.

The latest installment of ‘Ghostbusters‘ has turned into the questionable existence equivalent of the Loch Ness Monster of Hollywood. When someone reports that it’s in the making, I treat it like a Bigfoot sighting. “Pics or it didn’t happen” seems to be my response to not only the rumors of the giant furry humanoid living in the woods a mile from my house, or the claims that my kids actually get along away from home, this reaction  is also what I extend to any rumors or buzz that ‘Ghostbusters 3‘ is past anything but the talks stage.

THE TV SERIES – 5/5 STARS

Nothing has slowed down or become redundant with HBO’s flagship series, ‘Game of Thrones‘ Season 3. Based on George R.R. Martin’s third book ‘A Storm of Swords‘, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have decided to split the book up into two seasons, which is no easy feat, considering the amount of information in the book and the strategy of where to place certain story arcs. Luckily for us, everyone involved from the cast and crew of the show have flawlessly executed every aspect of the series.

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.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the new ‘Iron Man 3‘ poster which has Don Cheadle (Rhodes) in the Iron Patriot armor, which looks very cool. Shane Black making an ‘Iron Man‘ film is just incredible. I think it might be the best one yet. The third installment opens up May 3rd, and I’m sure we all can’t wait.  I hope at the end of the film we get a tease for the next ‘Avengers’ movie.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Frankenweenie 3D’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

I was much impressed with Tim Burton’s remake of his own short-fil of the same title, ‘Frankenweenie’, about a boy who brings back to life his dead dog in the vein of Frankenstein.  Burton really has made much of any original film in the last ten years, besides ‘Big Fish’, and in my opinion, his remakes aren’t good, but with this one, it seemed like a return from the director I grew up with and learned to love, despite my loathing of his remake films.  ’Frankenweenie’ was very entertaining and a lot of fun.

The Black Keys To Perform At The Grammys!

Hey rock and roll fans, Napkin Art here…

It’s that time of year again. The 55th Grammy Awards are happening on February 10, 2013, and the list of performers for the evening are starting to trickle in. You may have already seen the list of nominees, which is a slight improvement from past award ceremonies, but let’s hope this year’s performers won’t disappoint.

The only bands we give a damn about who are on the list of performers (so far) is The Black Keys and UK darlings, Mumford & Sons, who I’m sure, will be rocking the tunes they’ve been nominated for (The Black Keys’ “Lonely Boy” for ‘Record of the Year’, while the two face off for ‘Album of the Year’ nods, as well). Rihanna and Taylor Swift were also tapped to perform at the ceremony (yawn.) Hopefully, Jack White, who is also up for ‘Album of the Year’ nods for his best-selling debut LP, “Blunderbuss,” will also get tapped to perform. You know his performance alone will make The Grammys worth watching alone. Remember “Seven Nation Army” from the 46th Annual Grammy Awards?

What performers are you hoping to catch live at The Grammys this year?

Bryan’s DVD Review of ‘Black Hand’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…..

Classic Gene Kelly films are always a must.  Did you know Gene was in some some thrillers and mafia type films?  It’s true.  You should check out ‘Black Hand’.  This is billed as Gene’s first dramatic role, and he is great in it.  And with the big release of ‘Singing in the Rain’ recently, a few of Gene’s lesser known works are trickling out.  Although it is a made-to-order Warner Archive DVD with no extras, I still recommend this release.  You won’t regret it.

Bryan’s ‘John Carter’ 3D Bluray Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

In my opinion, ‘John Carter’ is one fun ride.  I really think the executives over at Disney had no idea how to market this movie.  Of course, it showed during its theatrical run, because it didn’t make near enough as everyone thought it would.  ‘John Carter’ cost around $200 million to make and is a story of epic proportions.  The ‘John Carter’ 3D Bluray is one to own if you love action adventure films.  Don’t let the critics persuade you not to like this film, because in fact, you will enjoy it.
