‘Preacher’ Has Found Their Jesse Custer!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 17th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

34_JesseCuster

It’s been a long time coming. That’s not an understatement either. I’m talking years and years in the making for this epic ‘Preacher‘ series from Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon. Formally a DC Vertigo comic book from 1996-2000, several networks and production companies have tried to get this off the ground either into a movie adaptation or a tv series.

‘Preacher’ Casts ‘Arseface’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

preacher__140206194142

We’ve been talking about the ‘Preacher‘ series that is coming to AMC from Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for quite some time. Well it looks like they have cast one a fan favorite character for the show, which is Arseface or as his real name reads, Eugene Root. Root got the name Arseface for trying to kill himself with a shotgun to the face, hence the name. However, he is the nicest kid anyone will ever meet, but he has a dark secret that he’s keeping.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

preacher__140206194142

Here is another step in the right direction to finally get one of the best comic books ever put on television. The 1990’s comic book ‘Preacher‘ by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon was picked up by the popular network AMC (‘Breaking Bad‘, ‘Walking Dead‘, ‘Mad Men‘). We have also reported that Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg were attached to produce and write the script for this new television series. Well, good news has come.

Hi, Bryan Here….

preacher

I don’t want to believe any of this, because I’ve been hurt and burned so many times with this project, that I don’t think my mind, body, soul, and testicles can take it anymore. There have been countless attempts to adapt the comic book series ‘Preacher‘ by Garth Ennis for years now. We’ve even written about it on this site many times. Now, it seems that there is finally some steam and a new company wanting to develop this amazing and sadistic story. And that company is AMC.

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Machine Gun Preacher’ is one intense film.  It’s not for the faint of heart or for someone looking for a feel good movie.  This film is not only to entertain, but is to educate people on what is going on in Africa and from what the real ‘Machine Gun Preacher’, Sam Childers constantly says, this film is to show people that God exists.  The film itself is  really good.  I know FedMex disagrees with me, but I did genuinely enjoy the film.  I thought Gerard Butler and Michelle Monaghan played the Childers family magnificently.  Monaghan especially.  I think she deserves an award for her role in this film.  I think this film should be seen by all.  Not only because of the good acting and great filmmaking, but to educate people on the real problem going on in the Sudan.  ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ is an exceptional film.

FedMex Reviews ‘Machine Gun Preacher’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Machine Gun Preacher.  Unfortunately, here’s what I have to say about this film….

The audience clapped at the end of the screening.  Overall, it would appear that people were receptive to the portrayal of Sam Childers’ story on the big screen.  The story itself may be quite compelling, but unfortunately, it did not translate well onto the big screen.

Hi Bryan Here….

Boomstick Comics sat down with the real life Machine Gun Preacher himself, Sam Childers, to talk about the film ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ which is the true story on the the life of well…himself.  Needless to say, Childers is intense and endearing all at the same time.  I have no idea how he does it.  The fierce and great Childers discusses the differences from real life and the film and what he currently is doing now.  It is amazing.   Enjoy.  And also purchase his book below to find out more information about Childers’ ongoing story and how you can help out.

Hi Bryan Here….

Boomstick Comics sat down with Leonidas himself, Gerard Butler, to talk about his latest film ‘Machine Gun Preacher’ which is the true story on the the life of Sam Childers.  Butler plays Childers in the film perfectly.  The charming and hilarious Butler talks about how he prepared for his role as Sam Childers and what it was like working on the set.  he also gives us a little hint of some of his upcoming films including a short film directed by Brett Ratner where Butler plays two foul-mouthed leprechaun brothers.  He gives us one of his lines in character.  It was pure magic and hysterical.  Enjoy.  You might recognize Gerard from ‘300’, ”, ‘Phantom of the Opera’, and ‘Gamer’.

More “Preacher” News Again!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

It seems like going on about ten years now, that the BEST COMIC BOOK EVER, has been tried and tried again to become a feature film or television series.  Nothing ever has come of it.  It seems that director D.J. Caruso (Disturbia, Eagle Eye, Taking Lives, The Shield) will direct the long awaited “Preacher” adaptation.  This depends on how well his upcoming film “I am Number Four” does at the box office according to SlashFilm.

More News on the Preacher Movie Adaptation

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 1st, 2010

This is utterly the best comic book I have ever read.  If you have not read these books please please read them.  You can find them HERE.

For the past decade or so, this book has been trying to get made by numerous companies and people.  First off it was set up by Kevin Smith at view Askew studios with a $25 million dollar budget, but fell through then it got transferred to be an HBO series starring James Marsden as the lead Jesse Custer.  It got as far as make-up tests for a character called Arse-Face which if you sear well enough you will be able to find the AWESOME tests online.

Then Sam Mendes of American Beauty and Road to Perdition fame wanted to make this adaptation work.  Sadly it did not work out.

Add a few more companies and producers and directors over the next few years trying to get this project off the ground all to have it a NO-GO.

So producer Neil Moritz is still trying to get this made as writer John august has writing the screenplay which will be a series of films.  What we know now is that at least the first film for now will be an “R” rating and that is faithful to the comic and also being written for a more broader audience in ways to make money and a bigger crowd into it.  In addition to that August and Moritz have been looking for the right director.  Joe Carnahan, who recently made The A-Team has expressed interest in wanting to make this.  Robert Rodriguez and Mark Steven Johnson have also expressed interest in this film.

Personally I want Quentin Tarantino to helm this project or maybe Zack Snyder.

Who would you want to see cast and helm this project.  Please comment and let me know.

I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner, but good news for everyone involved. Amazon is officially in business with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in bringing the hit comic book series ‘The Boys‘ to the TV Series realm. The comic book started in 2006 and was written by Garth Ennis (‘Preacher‘) and focused on a group of people known as ‘The Boys‘ who set out to take out corrupt superheroes who destroy the lives of many while trying to do their jobs.

Coming to America 2 is Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

It looks like it’s official. ‘Coming to America 2‘ is finally happening. I’m on the fence about this at this moment in time, because the original film that was directed by John Landis and starred Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, and James Earl Jones, amongst a ton of other great actors is one of the funniest films ever made with a ton of heart. Doing a sequel so many years later – – I have my doubts, since nobody from the original film has signed on yet.

Film Review: ‘A United Kingdom’!!

by Janet White on Feb 24th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A United Kingdom - Date

 

Set in the late 1940s London and the country of Botswana (formerly the British Protectorate of Bechuanaland),  A United Kingdom, is a love story in the spirit of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet. Society has many ways to try to separate a couple that crosses the barrier and exemplify love is love. Whether it says you cannot be that person because they are from the wrong family, different caste, or, as in this case, of different races, people of vision for a better world have struggled against Society. Sir Seretse Goitsebeng Maphiri Khama (David Oyelowo), was soon to become King of Botswana when he first laid eyes on Ruth Williams (Rosamund Pike), a white British woman. The love they come to have for each can either cripple the nation of Botswana or be its champion. Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

 

It’s Halloween season and the big horror movie studio Blumhouse has released another film in their canon franchise with their famous business plan. That movie is ‘Ouija: Origin of Evil‘, which is a prequel to ‘Ouija‘ from 2014. I know. I get suspicious too when a studio wants to start telling prequel stories to the masses. Most of the time, they don’t work, but Blumhouse and filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Oculus) really raised the bar with this prequel that is terrifying, fun, and connects the original film nicely, despite some silly problems here and there.

Film Review: ‘The Birth of a Nation’!!

by Janet White on Oct 7th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

the-birth-of-a-nation-sermon

 

When I first heard that I had the assignment to review The Birth of a Nation, I was discouraged. The 1918 version was so full of racist stereotypes, blackface, and made a hero of such a horrible organization, the Ku Klux Klan. I didn’t want to screen the 2016 film of the same name (I don’t research prior to a screening, so the experience is fresh and unbiased by propaganda). Admittedly, after watching the 2016 version, I was still discouraged. Though told from the Black point of view, I saw such atrocities committed on both sides of the racial line.   Read the rest of this entry »

He was in ‘The Bad News Bears‘, the 1976 version with a cranky Walter Matthau, he was in ‘Watchmen‘, he even became a new generation’s Freddy Krueger in ‘A Nightmare on Elm Street‘.

Interesting news is afoot with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg (This is the End, Preacher). The writing/directing duo purchased the rights to the ‘Where’s Waldo‘ franchise back in 2011 and it looks like MGM is ready to greenlight a live action version of it. You remember ‘Where’s Waldo‘ – the guy in the striped wool hat that is dressed in red, white, and blue, with glasses that you spent hours looking for in many books. The screenplay is written by Kyle Hunter and Ariel Shaffir, who according to Deadline have been taken under the wings of Goldberg and Rogen for some time now.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Ride Along 2 - Bros

 

Following on the tails of the Ride Along, Ride Along 2 comes rollin’ in.  Ben Barber (Kevin Hart) is finally a cop, straight out of the academy, and still seeking James Payton’s (Ice Cube) respect.  Especially, since Ben is about to marry James’ sister, Angela.  The buddy comedy continues, but lacks luster.  Kevin Hart has his usual diarrhea mouth, but in this film, someone added 20 lbs. of ex-lax to his condition.  Normally 8 out of 10 times, this endless train of ramblings can make your side split.  However, in Ride Along 2 his batting average drops.

As a writer for Boomstick Comics, we are charged with going to see a lot of movies. I thought that this past year, I saw quite a few. Apparently, with the opening of the Alamo Drafthouse in Richardson, the movies I saw this past year weren’t all new. There were some that were classic programming at a new venue. What can I say?

Horns Movie Picture (6)

Horror movie filmmaker Alexandre Aja has given us quite a few gems over the past decade, which include the French film ‘Haute Tension‘ and the American remake of ‘The Hills Have Eyes‘. Needless to say, he has made his own unique impact on the horror genre. But where those films tend to be the straight-in-your-face horror films with tons of blood and guts, Aja has transitioned into something with a bit more depth that what he is used to with ‘Horns‘, which is based on Joe Hill’s (Stephen King’s son) novel of the same name.

Film Review: ‘Sacrament’!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Let’s pretend it’s October 31, you decide to see a movie, you approach the ticket counter and utter the most cliche’d line that we all learn as tiny children, “Trick or Treat”. Think about that phrase, it’s not just an open and shut demand for candy, there is always the option for trick. Let’s say the guy selling you a ticket for the movie decided to give you a trick instead of a treat. That’s what watching this film was. ‘Sacrament‘, not to be confused with ‘The Sacrament‘ from last year. While both feature extreme religious cults, that’s where the similarity of the films ends,  one  drinks the Kool-Aid and one stays for dinner….literally.

 And we are back one year later with a sequel to Marlon Wayans‘ ‘A Haunted House 2‘, which is the funniest film of the year so far. Like the first movie, Wayans and crew parody the ‘Paranormal Activity‘ films along with some of the horror flicks that were released last year including ‘Sinister‘, ‘The Conjuring‘, and ‘Insidious 2‘. For those of you who missed the first outing, don’t worry, yo won’t need to catch up, but I suggest you do as it’s as funny as this sequel. After ‘Scary Movie‘ and Wayans parted ways (there is a jab at that issue in this movie), the comedic icon took a different approach with this new franchise.

Hi Bryan Here…

Everyone’s favorite animated family has just been renewed for two more new seasons.  Of course I am talking about the lovable ‘Simpsons’.  Of course over the past few days, Fox and the cast of the ‘Simpsons’ have been negotiating their salaries.  Fox said earlier in the week that ‘The Simpsons’ might need to be cancelled because they could no longer afford the salaries of their cast.  Harry Shearer (voice of Ned Flanders, Reverend Lovejoy, Lenny, amongst tons of others) offered 70% of his salary to keep the show going.  But that didn’t need to happen.  Fox and the cast came to a gracious agreement and we get ‘The Simpsons’ for at least two more years.  Kudos to everyone involved and thank you.

Sorry for the lack of this column over the past few weeks.  Been so busy with the holiday season, the website moving to different bigger servers, planning on some big contests and info to dish out to yall, and a few other surprises here and there.  But alas, the Bluray/DVD column is back on track and will be out weekly again.  So i hope you enjoy this abundance of releases.  Tons of great stuff here.

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.
