Blu-ray Review: ‘I, Tonya’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Yes, I’m old enough to have been alive and understand all that went down back in 1994, in regards to the Olympic Figure Skating competitors. Specifically that of Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. It was such a media circus of epic proportions and very bizarre culmination of events that made worldwide news for months and even years after the 1994 Olympic games. Directed by Craig Gillespie (‘Lars and the Real Girl’, ‘Fright Night’, ‘Million Dollar Arm’), ‘I, Tonya‘ follows the life of Tonya Harding, from her upbringing, her abusive home-life with her mother and other relationships, that lead to her competing in figure skating and the infamous attack on her USA teammate Nancy Kerrigan.

Film Review: ‘The Martian’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

martian-gallery3-gallery-image

It’s no doubt in my mind that director Ridley Scott was the perfect person to direct ‘The Martian‘, which was based off of Andy Weir’s 2011 novel of the same name. His brilliant story telling and eye to make a desolate planet like Mars look beautiful is simply majestic. Scott is mostly known for directing ‘Alien‘ and ‘Blade Runner‘, which kind of makes him one of the Godfather’s of science-fiction, but he has a few other gems on his resume too, all in different genres. With a movie like ‘The Martian‘ that is in the sci-fi realm, I was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed to find the film quite funny with a very feel-good quality to it, which is something that is not really present in Scott’s sci-fi movies.

Film Review: ‘Ricki and the Flash’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 5th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ricki-and-the-flash

We’ve all come to know that Meryl Streep is one of the greatest actresses in the world. With each role she plays, she fully immerses herself into her character, which usually leads to Oscar nominations and wins. There almost isn’t a year that goes by where Streep isn’t nominated for something, and truth be told, she usually deserves it. Over the years, we’ve seen Streep play many roles, most of which are dramatic performances with a few comedic and musical roles thrown in for good measure. Hell, she even played a witch in ‘Into the Woods‘, but we’ve never seen Streep like this before in Jonathan Demme’sRicki and the Flash‘.

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Apparition’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 24th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

I haven’t seen a movie this terrible since ‘Wrath of the Titans’.  Read me review of that HERE.  Todd Lincoln’s horror movie, ‘The Apparition’ is hands down one of the worst films I have ever seen.  And I hate to say that, because I love horror films.  But not one wretched piece of this movie had any redeeming quality about it. The only way I would ever think to sit down and watch this film again would be if the good folks over at Rifftrax did a riff commentary on the film.  Even then, I’d hate myself for watching it again.  I’d rather watch ‘Manos: The Hands of Fate’ every day for a year than watch ‘The Apparition’ again.

When frightening events start to occur in their home, young couple Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural, Patrick (Tom Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force and death.  What do you folks think?  ‘The Apparition’ hits theaters August 24.

Top 10 Ryan Gosling Scenes in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 17th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-17 at 9.59.40 AM

Ryan Gosling is a true patron for the arts. Proof of this can not only be found in his selective partaking in films with telling characters, but also in his accomplished side projects. There’s his under-appreciated dark wave and gothic indie band, Dead Man’s Bones, and we can’t forget his courageous 2014 directorial debut in the fantasy drama, Lost River. He’s come a long way from his humble beginnings as a Mouseketeer on The All New Mickey Mouse Club, and despite the pressure from Hollywood to keep up appearances, Ryan concentrates on staying true to himself and what matters most: his art. Today I’ve put together a list of my Top 10 favorite Ryan Gosling performances in film and why this talented Canadian, a true 21st century James Dean, is more than meets the eye.

 Sequels, while common among movies, are rather unique to documentaries. Korengal picks up right where Restrepo left off, with an unabashed, honest look into the lives of American soldiers in Afghanistan. This sometimes crude documentary follows a handful of soldiers from Battle Company.

Film Review: “Son of God”

by Woozie on Feb 27th, 2014

Suzanne L., Here…

Screen Shot 2014-02-27 at 12.14.13 PM

Whether you believe or do not believe, most people can agree that the story of Jesus is very powerful. A man who sacrifices his life by a going through a terrible death in the hopes that his act will save humankind from the grave – it is automatically filled with drama and meaning. Unfortunately, the latest film to try to capture the power of this story, Son of God, fails in so many ways. From the acting to the scripting to the special effects and staging, this is one story of the Gospel that should be skipped.

Film Review: ‘Gloria’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

gloria_med-640x360

Chilean director Sebastian Lelio’s film, ‘Gloria‘ is the poster child for how to make a great romantic comedy. Sure, there are many of these types of movies that have come before it, but none have their main character pushing 60, and none have been executed this well. As we’ve seen over and over again with the rom-com genre, things can get a bit cliched, silly, and just downright dumb.
