Blu-Ray Review: ‘Prometheus’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

“In space no one can hear you scream.”

We have all been hearing about a movie called ‘Prometheus’ for sometime now, and all of us fans have been trying to piece the puzzle together on what it has to do with Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien’ film.  Since Scott directed ‘Prometheus’ and the original ‘Alien’ film, there has to be some sort of connection from what we have seen from the trailers, right?  The filmmakers told us that ’Prometheus’ would be a prequel to the ‘Alien’ film.  After seeing ’Prometheus’, I can say that it’s a very early prequel.  I’m  certainly happy Scott returned to this universe, because the ‘Alien’ franchise has been in a state of decay for a number of years starting with the 4th installment and then onto the ‘Alien vs. Predator’ series.  So, I was truly hoping to get an original film, but with strong ties to the ‘Alien’ franchise.  The question is, did it work?

Hi, Bryan Here….

Director James Cameron recently spoke with the good folks at GuardianUK and mentioned that he wants to make the sequel to Ridley Scott’s ‘Prometheus’.  Let’s not forget that Ridley Scott directed the first ‘Alien’ film while James Cameron followed that up with his sequel ‘Aliens’.  It’s only fitting that the two directors would direct the prequels one after the other.

Hi Bryan Here….

I’m very psyched about ‘Prometheus‘.  Ridley Scott returning to the ‘Alien’ esque sci-fi realm.  Such a great cast and the trailers so far have been great.  I hope I can keep myself away from major spoilers of this movie, because I want don’t want to know too much about it before I see it.  Enjoy the trailer below.

4K UHD Review: Alien: Covenant!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 25th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We live in a time where all of our favorite films and television programs from decades ago are getting sequels, rebooted, and remade. The ALIEN franchise that we have all come to love over the years has had its share of revamps. Luckily, the original filmmaker Ridley Scott, who made ALIEN back in 1979 came back a few years ago and made an early sequel to the franchise with PROMETHEUS. Clearly, Scott isn’t done telling stories in this horrifying universe, and we now have a sequel with ALIEN: COVENANT, which breathes new life into this stale franchise and promises more sequels and even more scares. What we loved about the original ALIEN is certainly present in a lot of COVENANT.

Film Review: ‘[The Dark Tower]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 5th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

 

From the warped, creative mind of Stephen King comes a story of the oldest of battles, good versus evil. The master of the weird provided eight books in The Dark Tower series for Nikolaj Arcel, the director, to mold and shape for our viewing pleasure. Jake Chambers (Tom Taylor), a seemingly typical kid, awakes from slumber with his walls and the ground shaking. Natural disaster? No, because it happens far too often. Visions plague Jake’s and the earthquakes are the result, but why? What is it about Jake? He will journey far (and I mean FAR) to discover the truth. Read the rest of this entry »



Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix has jumped from small-screen and so-so feature film debuts to big-budget film exclusivity. I’m not saying Netflix wasn’t on their A-game before, but being the sole place to find the new Adam Sandler movie is a little different than being the only outlet to carry the new Will Smith (‘Collateral Beauty‘) action flick, and that’s exactly who they are now with the debut of ‘Bright‘.

Review #2 of ‘Alien Covenant’!

by Bryan Kluger on May 22nd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Alien-Covenant-Teaser-Trailer-020

A crew gets a distress signal from a planet. Crew lands on that seemingly abandoned planet. Planet has aliens. Aliens infect or attack humans. A survivor or two must fight said alien to get off the planet. Rinse and repeat. That isn’t to say the Alien: Covenant is a bad movie, it really isn’t but as far as the broad strokes are concerned it is a paint by numbers Alien movie. A marked improvement from Prometheus because it has better characters but the formula to this point is getting a bit stale for me. I didn’t hate this movie. I know it sounds like I did but really I’m just ready for it to evolve a bit more.

Film Review: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’!!

by Janet White on Apr 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Huntsman

 

Let’s say just say it…Snow White and the Huntsman was not well done.The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the hot and cold shell that envelops its predecessor.  It’s not perfect, but is action enjoyment coupled with corny sporadic humor.  Not to mention, Chris Hemsworth finally got his balls back.  I can tell you that.  Snow White and the Huntsman emasculated the action-packed hunk of man that is Hemsworth.  Though some believe that this story should not have been told, but I enjoyed the unveiling of the back-backstory.  The film could have been structured to be less predictable but sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy a film for your base needs: adrenaline, fear, and desire.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Danny McBride hasn’t been on a screen in a while, but that’s all about to change. The comedic actor, mostly known for HBO’sEastbound and Down‘ as Kenny Powers is in talks to co-star in Ridley Scott’s next installment of the ‘ALIEN‘ franchise, titled ‘Alien: Covenant‘.

Bryan Kluger’s Best/Worst of 2015!!

by Bryan Kluger on Dec 30th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

1140-mfg-2015-Readers-Choice-Best-Movie-poll-collage-promo.imgcache.rev1449178940055.web.722.414

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Ridley Scott’s ‘Alien:Covenant‘ has gained another star to add to it’s roster. Joining Michael Fassbender, is Katherine Waterston. Covenant is believed to be the first in a trilogy of new films that will link the events of ‘Prometheus‘ with the 1979 classic that began it all ‘Alien‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

alien_logo2.0.0

Ridley Scott has decided that as long as he’s getting such great buzz for ‘The Martian‘ and has all the press attention he could want, why not use it to tease the die-hard ‘Alien‘ fans at what is next to come in the franchise? Instead of months of calling the film a ‘Prometheus‘ sequel, we OFFICIALLY have a title – ‘Alien: Covenant‘ and we have a little more on the synopsis front, too.

Film Review: ‘Steve Jobs’!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 16th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

steve-jobs-movie-2015-holding

Steve Jobs opens on a black and white video of a young boy listening with profound focus to a computer technician’s progressive response to the world’s potential journey towards a computer-dependent society.  Young Steve Jobs clearly had a desire for technological innovation in his blood even then.  Through his wide-eyed look, the turning of his mental wheels was easily discerned.  Even then, you could tell that Jobs had his mind set on a path to making the right computers a part of everyone’s everyday life.  Fast forward to the launch of the first Mac where an all-grown up Jobs (Michael Fassbender) is in a state of controlled panic (or was it frustration?).

Shakespeare never goes out of style and ‘Macbeth‘ is proof of that. Of course, if you serve your Shakespeare with a side of Michael Fassbender (‘X-Men: First Class‘) as the titular Scottish duke, it’s a match made in heaven and has to be, at least part of, the reason the screening received a 10-minute standing ovation after it’s screening at the 68th Cannes Film Festival.

It won’t make it’s debut in theaters until 2016.

Film Review: ‘The Gunman’!!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 20th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

the-gunman-sean-penn

Spicoli, is that you? My what a long way Sean Penn has come.  Well-known for his comedic stony surfer dude role in Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Penn has also become quite the dramatic actor.  As Harvey Milk in Milk and Brad Whitewood Jr. in At Close Range Penn displayed his acting brilliance.  Is there a type of role this man cannot do?  Well, now I can say I love him as an action star.  In The Gunman, Penn (Jim Terrier) roars deadly prowess from his buffed up physique.  I was amazed at how hot he looked.  I’ve admired his performances before, but Penn shows me a different side in more ways than one.

Should ‘Alien’ Come Back To Life In A Reboot???

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 20th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

neill-blomkamp

Sometimes things that are dead should stay dead, no matter how much we want to resurrect them, I’m on the fence which category this franchise falls into. 20th Century Fox has secured a deal with director Neill Blomkamp to bring a new ‘Alien‘ film to the big screen.

Idris Elba Racing To The Small Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 1st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

idris-elba-ok

Idris Elba has a face that immediately calls to mind a number of characters and films. Maybe it’s BBC’s ‘Luther’, the ever-vigilant god Heimdall guarding Asgard in ‘Thor‘, ‘Prometheus‘, or ‘Pacific Rim‘, the point is, he makes everything memorable. This will be true when he toplines a documentary series about racing for Discovery Communications network.
