Hey everyone, Jana here,

It seems that everything can be made into a movie, anymore. Where Hollywood seems to hit the re-make option a bit too much, they also surprise us with something very original. Case in point – ‘Tupperware Unsealed‘. Sony recently picked up rights to author Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book that will be the basis for the film which will star Sandra Bullock.

UPGRADE


 

Upgrade is an excellent 90 minute Black Mirror episode. If you enjoy action movies or anything sci-fi I suggest checking out this quiet little movie before it leaves theaters. The basic plot is in the near future a guy has his spine severed when he and his wife get attacked by a group of men. After becoming a quadriplegic, he undergoes an experimental procedure that puts an AI chip in his spine. This chip gives him some superhuman abilities and senses which he uses to hunt down his wife’s killers.

Film Review: ‘Ocean’s 8’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2018

Ocean’s 8 is an enjoyable heist movie, but it brought a fresh spin to the screen for the franchise, and for that reason it’s in the running for my favorite of the films. An all-female cast can come off pretty campy (hey Sex and the City), but when it’s done well (I see you Pitch Perfect), each character brings their own sass and charm to the screen. Oceans does just that, with each of the stars carrying their weight and adding a spark to the role they play as part of the heist team. No one out shined the other; they truly worked as a unit, which I think overall the Ocean films have tried to do. Clooney carried the day in the male led films, but here, all the women brought it.

Ocean’s 8 Full movie Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2017

We’ve been hearing for a while that there will be a full female film called ‘Ocean’s 8‘, which will coincide with the ‘Ocean’s 11‘ movies. In fact, Sandra Bullock will play Danny Ocean’s (George Clooney) sister with Cate Blanchett playing the role that Brad Pitt played in the trilogy of movies. It looks to be set in the same universe and stars Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, with Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter. There will be many other cameos as well, including Matt Damon, reprising his role as Linus.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage123

In a move that will surely have people claiming that Hollywood is trying to ruin their childhood, and why can’t they just leave it alone, along with my favorite – are there no original ideas anymore? Comes the announcement that Warner Bros. is revamping ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘ with ‘Ocean’s Ocho‘. Of course there’s a twist – the cast consists of women. If you’re claiming the George Clooney led ‘Ocean’s Eleven‘ from 2001 doesn’t deserve a reboot, just remember that film was a reboot of the ‘Ocean’s 11’ ensemble original from 1960. Frank Sinatra was Danny Ocean and was surrounded by his rat pack buddies. So go ahead, take a few minutes and get the whining out of your system, I can wait.

Film Review: ‘Minions’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 10th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Minions have existed since the first amoebas dawned the depths of the ocean.  The film opens under an endless sea of evolution.  From single cell organisms to complex beings, the minions and their cute little eye(s) moved through time serving big bosses from T-Rex to the worst historical monsters.  As loyal of servants as they can be, the minions are the worst bad guy sidekicks, EVER; poor, poor T-Rex never saw it coming.  No wonder why they know and speak in so many languages.  I know I heard Spanish, French, and, of course, gibberish.

First trailer for ‘Minions’ is finally here!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 4th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

minions-film-2015

 

If you have managed to survive this long without knowing who or what ‘Minions‘ are, you lead a sad life and I pity you. This could also mean you have no children in your life and you, yourself are not a fan of animated kiddie fare. Either way, I want to ask “Why are you reading this?” Don’t go anywhere, I’m glad you’re here. This is something I’m excited to share with you. Minions are fantastically hilarious little denizens that have existed since the beginning and their sole purpose is to serve the most ambitious villains they can find.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Bill_&_Ted

 

Every actor with any success has that one certain film that locks their position in the industry as a solid player and worthy of being called up to the show. Deciding which picture is the defining moment in their careers is always up for discussion. Tonight I’m talking about Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. These two names have been paired since 1989 when they posed as Bill & Ted on an Excellent Adventure. In recent interviews, Winter gave out some details about the highly anticipated third film in the bodacious franchise! Before, we get to those, let’s talk about their careers.

Hello, Jana here,

A John Grisham novel is like a mug of coffee on a stormy day, a glass of wine after the kids are asleep, or even a Xanax when you want to rip someone’s head off. The point is, it’s a calming, reassuring presence. It’s going to be an intense, legal, thrill ride that has a feel-good ending. Grisham’s tried and true writing style is gripping, authentic and something that lends itself to film adaptation easily. This has been the case with ‘The Firm‘, ‘The Pelican Brief‘, ‘The Client‘ and ‘A Time to Kill‘ among several others. There is even a complete departure from his norm evident in ‘Christmas With The Kranks‘.

Here Come The Minions!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 16th, 2014

Jana B., Here…

If you’re disappointed that you won’t get to see the cute, quirky, 3 fingered minions from the ‘Despicable Me‘ movies before the third installment of the crazy popular ‘Despicable Me‘ series on June 30, 2017, I have fantastic news! Illumination Entertainment with Universal Pictures announced the 3D CG animated comedy, ‘Minions‘! Slated to release on December 19, 2014, we also know who two of the stars will be. Jon Hamm, crazy popular as Don Draper from ‘Mad Men‘ and Sandra Bullock, (‘Gravity‘, ‘The Blindside‘). Bullock is voicing the Audrey-Hepburn-esque Scarlet Overkill, as dangerous as she is fashionable, and bent on world domination. Hamm is voicing Scarlet’s husband as inventor, Herb Overkill. The film sees the faceless many minions competing to be a henchman for Overkill.

Here are the nominees for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Wow, there were a lot of snubs here. And how did ‘Rush‘ make the list for Best Picture? No way! And what about ‘The Way Way Back‘, ‘Mud‘, or ‘Short Term 12‘ not being nominated? For shame. Let me know what you think of this nominee list?

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-heat-3

Paul Feig (creator of ‘Freaks and Geeks‘ and director of ‘Bridesmaids‘ and ‘The Heat‘, which starred Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy), is developing a spin-off project based on some of the characters of ‘The Heat‘. I wish the new project would follow Bullock and McCarthy’s characters, but it won’t. Instead, it will follow the characters played by Jamie Denbo and Jessica Chaffin, who played Beth and Gina.

Film Review: ‘Gravity’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

gravity-debris

If ‘Gravity‘ was the last movie I saw before I died, I would die happy. This is hands down, the best film of the year so far, and quite possibly the best film of the last several years. Alfonso Cuaron has come back with a vengeance after a seven year hiatus. Cauron directed ‘Children of Men‘ and the third ‘Harry Potter‘ film to name a couple. I know all of you have seen the trailer for this film, and let me just say, you’re in the for the most thrilling ride of your life.

James-Cameron-directing-Avatar

James Cameron has confirmed that he will begin work in 2017 on a new project titled ‘Battle Angel‘, a project he has wanted and talked about doing for some time now. But after his huge box office success with ‘Avatar‘, which has brought over $2.8 billion for 20th Century Fox, Cameron is set to do two more ‘Avatar‘ movies. And why shouldn’t he? He is being given an unlimited amount of time and creative control on everything.

Film Review: ‘The Heat’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the_heat_bullock_mccarthy

Director Paul Feig is on a roll these days. From his time spent on the hit show ‘Freaks and Geeks‘ and ‘Undeclared‘, to his big box office smash comedy ‘Bridesmaids‘, the comedic director has not missed a step with this laugh-out-loud action-comedy, ‘The Heat‘. Sandra Bullock’s anal-retentive and proper FBI character mixes very well with Melissa McCarthy’s rough and rowdy street cop character perfectly and packs enough laughs for two whole movies. With the quick-witted and vulgar dialogue, and the chemistry between these two outlandish characters, I found myself laughing from start to finish so much, that I had tears in my eyes. Much like ‘Bridesmaids‘, I expect this McCarthy/Feig team to score big at the box office again this weekend.
