Hi Bryan Here….

It seems like Nick Nolte is getting tons of roles these days.  Glad to see his career is picking back up again.  He is set to star in ‘Gangster Squad’ directed by Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland, 30 Minutes Or Less).  “Nolte will play Bill Parker, the new chief of police in Los Angeles, and the first in a awhile who hasn’t been corrupted by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn). The chief, a Purple Heart recipient at Normandy, is the one who starts the Gangster Squad, a crack team designed to bring down organized crime. Ryan Gosling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Mireille Enos and Anthony Mackie star.”

4K UHD Review: ‘Warrior’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2017

THE FILM


If you ever thought that the world of MMA could be a one-note violent sport, you do not know what you’re talking about and you’ve obviously never seen this highly emotional and excellent film called ‘Warrior‘. It’s been a long time since we’ve all connected to such characters such as these, and it has certainly been a long time since we’ve seen Nick Nolte in a role such as this one, which he received an Oscar nomination for. ‘Warrior‘ is certainly a violent film, but it’s also one about redemption, family, and forgiveness.

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

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

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).

Film Review: ‘Gangster Squad’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

gangster-squad_2012-en-2-1280x851

Gangster Squad‘ lacks depth, character, and mild storytelling, but with its amazing cast of actors, over-the-top violence, and cartoony vibe, I left the theater highly entertained.  Instead of playing out like a true noir gangster film from the 40s, director Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) has gone the route of making this gangster film like and R rated ‘Dick Tracy‘ mixed with a Saturday morning cartoon, which isn’t necessarily bad, but instead of getting story and character, we get blood and guts.

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.

Bryan Reviews ‘Warrior’ DVD!!! (A DVD Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2012

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Warrior’ was surprisingly a knock out with me.  I really enjoyed this film.  Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton, and Nick Nolte were all killer in this film.  I was hoping Nolte would get an Oscar nod for his role in this.  And guess what?  He did.  ‘Warrior’ was a very inspiring film and sticks with you for a while.  I only wish this film has more push while it was in theaters.  This DVD was packed with extras.  Only wish I had received the bluray version of this.

Hi Bryan Here….

The Season Finale of HBO’s ‘Luck’ airs at the end of March, but don’t fret, for HBO has already renewed ‘Luck’ for a second season due to very high ratings.  It’s great to see Dustin Hoffman on HBO.  I think his character Ace, is brilliant.  I wouldn’t be surprised to see him nominated for some awards in upcoming future awards shows.

Hi Bryan Here….

HBO’s new series ‘Luck’ has been getting strong reviews and ratings.  Hoffman is wonderful in the show along with all the other actors.  There are SPOILERS below, so if you do not want to know what might happen in the next few episodes, don’t click  below.  But, I am already hooked on ‘Luck’ and can’t wait for more episodes already.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.

Hi Bryan Here…

Some great releases this week for the last week of February.  Both new and classic titles.  It is always so great watching the classic titles in hi-def.  It’s like watching it for the first time again.  As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!
