Written By: Bryan Kluger

Paul Thomas Anderson and Daniel Day Lewis are back at it again with a new film called ‘Phantom Thread‘, which is set to release on Christmas later this year. I’m quite sure the film, along with both Lewis and Anderson will be nominated for all the Oscars. Of course, Anderson brought us ‘Boogie Nights‘ all those years ago and has continued to bring us amazing films over the years. He even teamed with Daniel Day Lewis with ‘There Will Be Blood‘, which is still talked about today, milkshakes and all.

Misty Here…

Benicio Del Toro is now deciding if he wants to join Joaquin Phoenix in Warner Bros. new film, “Inherent Vice”.  Paul Thomas Anderson is the writer-director of this gem that he has adapted from Thomas Pynchon’s crime novel. The film will be set during the spring of 1970 and will follow a reefer loving detective Doc Sportello (Phoenix) as he investigates a kidnapping.  Del Toro’s character will be an attorney who always comes to the aid of Sportello, but it will not be a major role. This role will could be meaty enough to steal some of Phoenix’s thunder. If anyone could do it, Del Toro can.

Hi Bryan Here….

The Weinsteins have purchased the world rights to Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film which is currently untitled at the moment but was once called “The Master” according to DEADLINE.  This will be the first film PTA has directed since “There Will Be Blood”.  The untitled film will begin shooting on June 13th and has already cast two major stars.  Philip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix are signed on and a female actress is currently being scouted as well.

Director P.T. Anderson’s (There Will Be Blood,Magnolia,Boogie Nights) next film “The Master” has been stopped indefinitely.  This is sad sad news.


The film, which would parallel the development of Scientology and follow, in particular, the rise of an L. Ron Hubard-like figure, has run into problems that Anderson‘couldn’t overcome.’


Actor Jeremy Renner who was to star in this film said this: “I was really bummed about that…It really kind of stalled because when we were rehearsing — Phil, Paul and myself — we kept coming up against a wall that we couldn’t overcome. Or at least Paul couldn’t overcome.”


Philip Seymour Hoffman who was also set to star in this film said: “I don’t have any new information [about ‘The Master’]. I really mean that, I’m not being obtuse. I don’t quite know what that is at the moment, but hopefully I will and hopefully I’ll be part of something soon. It would be great to work with him again.”


Now I am not sure why this is happened.  Lots of guesses and theories can be made and hopefully one day this movie will see the light of production day again.


What do you think?

Film Review: ‘Phantom Thread’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 12th, 2018

It was a gloomy day when Daniel Day-Lewis announced his retirement from acting in 2017, and watching the curtain close over his final film was bittersweet. But in staying steadfast to his trademark of eloquent and emotional performances, he established once more that he’s a masterful artist. ‘Phantom Thread‘ is a stylishly sophisticated picture interlaced with darkness. Director Paul Thomas Anderson has capsuled the allure of a post-war decade and produced a motion picture any exiting actor would be proud to call their last.

Given Robert Downey Jr’s current state of badassery and awesomeness, I can’t think of anything he could do that would not bring in the fans. Once he turned the corner on his bad boy behavior in the 1980’s, he’s the equivalent of a golden ticket. Team Downey, which consists of RDJ and his wife, Susan Downey, has been harboring the idea of a fairy tale they want to give the live-action treatment. The tale of Pinocchio is one RDJ has been developing for years, somewhat on the sly, with Michael Mitnick (‘The Giver‘) writing the most recent draft while RDJ is ready to board the project as Geppetto, the toy maker.

Paul Thomas Anderson is one of the best directors working today.

Bryan’s Top 20 Films of 2012!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I can’t believe that 2012 is at its end and we are about to welcome 2013.  This year has gone by so fast, and man, did I see tons of films.  When I started making this 2012 list, I came up with 87 films that I enjoyed.  Yes, you read that right, 87, meaning there were probably just as many films that I didn’t enjoy.  Now, below is my top 20 of the year. I just couldn’t do it with 10 this year.  And these are films that I watched in the theater or at home and that don’t necessarily come out this year, but I did see this year.  And I’m sure I’ll get a lot of criticism for my list, but hey this is my list, not yours.  You can have your own.  But my lists tend to be different than most people’s as you can tell from my previous lists HERE. So without any further delay, below is my TOP 20 films for 2012.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Master’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Paul Thomas Anderson has knocked it out of the park yet again, with his masterfully crafted film, ‘The Master’.  I have no doubt people will be talking about this movie for weeks or even months to come.  ‘The Master’ is such a complex movie with tons of smart and clever parts to it, that I can’t wait to watch it several more times to catch everything.

Hi Bryan Here…

It is finally here.  The final ten films of the list.  The top ten films of the decade.  It was blast making this list and remembering all those memories of seeing the movies for the first time.  It makes me want to watch a lot of them again.  These top 10 films were extremely difficult to place, but alas it was accomplished.  I hope you enjoy the finished list.  As usual, you will get the title of the film, the release date, a mini review and synopsis by yours truly, and a link to purchase the movie over at amazon for a good price.  Feel free to leave comments of your lists or to disagree or agree with mine.

I love British royalty, British comedy and British crime dramas, as far as the last category goes, there’s been a trailer released for one of the most exciting series on Netflix and it’s getting ready to air it’s 3rd season – ‘Peaky Blinders‘.
