Aug/2018

We have a very fun 74th episode of our fun podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘Media-Ocrity‘, where the show is just – okay. Here on the show, we focus strictly on horror/sci-fi, comic books, and video games – basically all the fun stuff that tickles your fancy. In our 74th episode, titled ‘Neil Young sings with the Dude about Dexter‘, we discuss the 20th anniversary of ‘The Big Lebowski‘ and how it has held up, Neil Young acting in a new film, the upcoming season and feature film of ‘Impractical Jokers‘, what would have been a better series finale of ‘Dexter‘, and we all pitch what we think would make a cool theme park. It was so much fun. This episode is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. I am joined pop-culture wizard Jonathan Atterbury and comic book artist Jeremy Megert.

Hello Jana here,

NEIL_YOUNG-353x

Neil Young is throwing his hat into the ring with the likes of Apple iTunes, Amazon.com, Spotify and Pandora. Young announced the newly formed Pono Music service. Pono is the Hawaiian word for ‘righteous’. Not only is Pono Music going to be a provider for select artists, but they are offering a custom-built $399 listening device. Sounds like fancy wording for the iPod. Their music offerings, when played through the Pono Player, will give an ultra high-quality digital listening experience.

Neil Young: Journeys Blu-Ray (REVIEW)

by NapkinArt on Jan 5th, 2013

51iqgP9I1sL._SL500_AA300_Howdy Classic Rock fans, Napkin Art Here…

I have just one question: Who the f*ck doesn’t love Neil Young?

The ‘Grandaddy of Grunge’ has been on quite a roll over the last few years, musically and artistically, releasing several critically acclaimed albums, an autobiography (finally), not to mention releasing the long, long-awaited “Neil Young Archives: Volume 1” to the masses, proving again and again that ‘rust never sleeps.’ After all, Young is pretty old for a rock and roll star. However, his love for making music and shredding guitars on stage never ceases to wane, as is evident in his latest concert documentary film, “Journeys,” from Shakey Pictures and Sony Pictures Classics.

Bryan Reviews Neil Young’s ‘Journeys’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I’m a big fan of Neil Young.  I have loved his music since I was able to listen to it.  From his solo work thru his work with Buffalo Springfield and Crosby, Stills, Nash, and Young; Mr. Young has proved time and time again that he is a master of sound and music.  Donathan Demme perfectly captures Young on his solo tour, specifically his performance at Toronto’s Massey Hall, which is his birth city.  If you are a fan of Neil Young, this will no doubt make a good edition to your Neil Young collection.

Bryan Becomes A ‘Dead Man’!!! (A Blu-Ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Dead Man’ might be my favorite Jim Jarmusch film.  Yes, better than ‘Coffee and Cigarettes’, ‘Broken Flowers’, and ‘Ghost Dog’.  The cast of ‘Dead Man’ is amazing with its lead being super star Johnny Depp.  Some think this is a western film.  I like to think of ‘Dead Man’ as the ultimate experimental western.  ‘Dead Man’ is simple and plain AWESOME.  This movie has everything going for it.  The acting, the story, the filming, the story, and the characters.  They all come together to erupt a truly creative and brutal film.  Highly recommended.

Who Is Ready For The Country, Ya’ll?

by NapkinArt on Jun 12th, 2011

Believe it or not, Neil Young and the country go together like peanut butter and jelly, mashed potatoes and gravy and Woodward and Bernstein, so it’s no surprise when Young rocks and roars “Are You Ready For The Country” everyone listens.

Neil Young International Harvesters “A Treasure” is a 12 track collection of brilliant live material culled from Young’s 1984-85 tour, several tracks which have never been before released, which drops on the streets Tuesday, June 14th.

Buffalo Springfield to Tour in 2011?

by NapkinArt on Feb 17th, 2011

Back in October 2010, Buffalo Springfield bandmates Neil Young, Stephen Stills (The Talent) and Richie Furay got together onstage for the first time in over 40 years during Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert. As most folks probably figured this was a one trick pony, the rumor mills have been running overtime the last couple of months whether or not the influential 1960s rock band would reunite for future gigs.

In November, Furay’s manager, David Spero, confirmed with Rolling Stone that the remaining members have been talking about the possibility of doing some tour dates. Days after the Bridge School gig, Furay said “We just picked up where we left off many, many years ago. It almost felt like going back in time.” Read the rest of this entry »

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.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

The ‘Lost in Space‘ reboot at Netflix has gained Toby Stephens in the character of John Robinson, the dad, astrophysicist and the expedition commander. Stephens starred in ‘Black Sails‘, ‘13 Hours‘, and ‘The Journey‘ where he plays Tony Blair. Maxwell Jenkins has also been cast in the project as Will Robinson, the youngest child. The pair join Taylor Russell, who has been previously attached to the project as the oldest daughter, Judy for the 10-episode series to debut in 2018.

Film Review: ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1200

Taika Waititi is one name you will soon remember for a very long time if you don’t already know it. Waititi is writer/director here for ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘, which is already in the top 5 BEST movies of the year, but Waititi is also an actor too. He starred in and directed the recent ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘, as well as directed ‘Eagle vs Shark‘ and even worked on ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ amongst other films. He is currently directing the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ film for Marvel, and it’s easy to see why Marvel hired this guy by watching ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘. Even if the premise here is similar to other films, Waititi makes the story and characters entirely refreshing and original.

‘The Secret Garden’ is Getting the Remake Treatment!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

secretgarden1

Hollywood is now remaking ‘The Secret Garden‘ yet again. I’ll say that the last big film adaptation of the classic family book was back in 1993, so there has been a little bit of time between remakes. David Heyman and Studio Canal are set to produce the film, which Heyman is mostly known for producing all of the ‘Harry Potter‘ films. The studio has hired Jack Thorne to write the screenplay.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Film Review: ‘The Good Dinosaur’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

maxresdefault

This year marks the first time that Pixar released to feature films in the same year. Usually, Pixar releases one film every year or two, but in 2015, we got both ‘Inside Out‘ and this new Thanksgiving release ‘The Good Dinosaur‘. There was good reason for this second release as well, as this might have been the first Pixar movie to ever have a troubled history of production. Back in 2009, Bob Peterson came up with the story and was set to direct ‘The Good Dinosaur‘ a couple of years later.

Hey guys, Jana here,

lost-in-space

For years, we’ve heard rumblings in the deepest pockets of space that the 1960’s sci-fi series ‘Lost in Space‘ was getting a remake. They even released a movie in 1998, 30 years after the series was relevant to most viewers. The response wasn’t enough to demand a sequel, but the concept of the show never went away. It was announced a few years ago that writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have been writing a script that will rejuvenate the series if it could only find a home.

Ten Great Lesser-Known Films Starring Big Name Actors!!

You might find yourself reading the following list, thinking “Hey! I’ve seen all these movies! How dare you claim them to be ‘lesser-known’!” My response to you, should you say such a thing, is “congratulations.” You see, just because you are a film nut like me, doesn’t mean that the rest of the populace is. The following is a list of ten good films with big-named actors that somehow slipped under the general radar. I’m not saying they are completely unknown, but based upon ticket sales, it certainly seems like they slipped the notice of the general public. These are all solid films that, should you enjoy these actors, you definitely want to check them out (the films, not the actors – although to each their own, I guess).

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.

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.

DIFF 2014 Film Review: ‘Child’s Pose’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

 01

Calin Peter Netzer’s very somber film ‘Child’s Pose‘ is a dark character study of the relationship between a mother/wife and her family. I’m sure we all know someone in our family who tries to control every little detail in everyone’s lives, and will go to the end of the world to find out the smallest details on their loved ones. At times, this can come across as comical, but most of the time it comes across as an annoyance, which can scar any relationship, even though the ‘patriarch’ of the family has good intentions.

Film Review: ‘Divergent’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

DIVERGENT

Ok, I’ll admit it. My name is Bryan Kluger, and I’m a Young Adult Movie virgin. I’ve never seen a ‘Twilight‘ movie nor have I seen either of ‘The Hunger Games‘ yet. And to be perfectly honest, I have not yet read any of these books that the movies were based on. Part of it is that I never got around to it while another part was that these stories didn’t really interest me. With ‘Twilight‘, my personal preference is to have my monsters whether they be vampires or werewolves, go on a nightly bender, wreaking havoc and killing for blood, only to have a hero stop their evil thirst and put them in their place. They are not to have vampires who wear glitter and talk about their feelings for three hours. It just doesn’t make sense to me.

 How-I-Met-Your-Mother-7

You can’t bottle lightning and you won’t likely see it strike the same place twice. Yet, television networks seem to be banking on just that improbability becoming the mainstay instead of the rare event it really is. Sadly, those of us that love truly original story lines are running out of things to watch. The silver screen has been a big culprit of this with the barrage of re-makes from successful movies barely 20 years old and mediocre tv shows that have earned the big screen treatment. I always hoped the small screen was safe since spin-offs never seem to do as well as the predecessor. Of course there are exceptions to this rule, but they are few and far between. I’m now taking bets on which of these proposed and shows in the works will make it through their first full season. I’m kidding, I’m not a bookie. Seriously, though…I’ll give you excellent odds.

Film Review: ‘Escape Plan’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

escape-plan-trailer-dl

I counted six one liners in the Schwarzenegger/Stallone film ‘Escape Plan‘. I was hoping for more, and when it came to Schwarzenegger’s big moment to deliver the goods, they must’ve hired a three year old, because his one-liner was pretty lame, as is much of this action thriller that finally has the two biggest action stars of the 80s together at last for an entire movie. Now before we get into the good and bad of this film, let us first discuss the director, whose name is Mikael Hafstrom, who directed the John Cusack vehicle ‘1408‘. But more interestingly, Hafstrom wrote a movie called ‘Kopps‘, which you can see a brief snippet below (it’s required viewing to proceed with the review)….

Seth MacFarlane Will Host the Oscars!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

The creator of Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show will host the 85th Oscars.  That’s right folks, Seth MacFarlane, the director of the recent film ‘Ted’ will assume hosting duties.  I wonder if this is a ploy to get a younger audience to watch the Oscars, a ploy the  Academy has been trying to do for many years.  Remember that horror montage they did a few years ago at the Oscars, which failed miserably?  Or maybe, they love MacFarlane’s hosting duties on Comedy Central’s Roasts?  Which ever the reason, I expect some inappropriate and funny humor at the Oscars.

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 15th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Childhood is a trying time, and the endearing hero of “ParaNorman” has more trials than most. A father who doesn’t understand him, a sister who finds him annoying, a bully who loves to pick on him, and a town full of ghosts that only he can see, Norman has quite a few troubles on his slight shoulders. But as others begin to open their eyes to his abilities and Norman learns the value of trusting those around him, ParaNorman delivers some great lessons while treating its audience to laughter and suspense.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival. Films announced include titles in the Galas and Special Presentations programmes. The announced films include 17 Galas and 45 Special Presentations, including 38 world premieres.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 9th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Battleship’ has a bluray heading our way August 28th.  READ MY REVIEW HERE!  It looks like there are tons of features on this release, and I anticipate this bluray look flawless and sounding even better.  It looks like this bluray will come with the DVD, a Digital Copy, and the UltraViolet Copy.  I’m very happy that we are getting a choice in a Digital Copy and UltraViolet.  I’ll go Digital Copy 100% of the time, but I hope other studios take notice of this and start providing us with a choice. Looks like Amazon has the pre-order up for $24.99. Below are all the fixin’s you can expect with the release of”Battleship’ on Bluray.

Hi Bryan Here….

“Voltage Pictures and Wildwood Enterprises have cast Shia LaBeouf and Robert Redford in the political action thriller, ‘The Company You Keep’.”  This movie sounds like ‘Sweet Smell of Success’ crossed with ‘The Manchurian Candidate’.  I have been hearing Redford has many projects in the works, but I haven’t heard of any in a while that have actually started production.  That is until this film.  And I like Shia.  He was excellent in ‘Disturbia’ and he is fun to watch on screen.  That being said, I’m happy to see him get away from the Michael Bay disasters and do something more in this vein.  Read the entire press release below.

Bluray/DVD Picks For The 3rd Week Of February!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.
