Hi Bryan Here…

One of the best films in the last 50 years.  Right at the top of that list.  Robert De Niro is fucking brilliant in this movie.  I can’t believe this movie has not been released on bluray yet.  This film is unrelenting, unmerciful, brutal, and all kinds of AWESOME.  A MUST OWN MOVIE.

Hey guys, Jana here,

John Leguizamo is one of those guys that demands your attention when he’s on screen, it may be in an utterly ridiculous capacity, he could be the bad guy and even if he’s the all-around good guy he’s going to throw some depth of character in there that will make your eye gravitate to him. So it’s no wonder he’s got 9 projects going for 2015 alone in addition to a traveling comedy show.

Film Review: ‘Silence’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1481451621_silence-movie

Martin Scorsese certainly has had a fantastic career in film. From films like ‘Raging Bull‘ to ‘Goodfellas‘ and ‘Casino‘, to ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘The Departed‘, and the recent ‘Wolf of Wall Street‘ – it’s easy to say that Scorsese is one of the best filmmakers still out there today. Scorsese may be know for a lot of gangster and super violent films over his career, but he has made a variety of other movies in different genres, including the recent kid’s film ‘Hugo‘. He is also a big supporter in world cinema, making it easier for people around the world to experience new filmmakers from other countries. One genre Scorsese is fairly into is the religion genre.

4k UHD Review: ‘Goodfellas’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

By the time 1990 came around, Martin Scorsese had already made several masterpieces in film, which continue to be praised and talked about to this day. With the likes of ‘Raging Bull‘, ‘Taxi Driver‘, and ‘The Last Waltz‘, we all knew that Scorsese was one of the finest filmmakers and storytellers around. Even with just those three previous films mentioned, you’d know you were in for a treat when Scorsese wanted to show you something. Then 1990 came around and Scorsese once again changed the film community with a movie called ‘Goodfellas‘, which was his big foray into the whole mafia genre.

Film Review: ‘Learning to Drive’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Learning-to-Drive-Movie

Learning to Drive opens at the completion of driving instruction with Darwan Singh Tur (Sir Ben Kingsley) speaking words of wisdom and reality to his student driver.  Next we are guided through a typical day of a hardworking Indian in America.  Two jobs and a house full of relatives/friends from his village, Darwan is a stereotype of who Indians are.  I do not like stereotypes whether factual or not.  People are curvy (multi-faceted) and should not be pressed into any particular box/label.  However, in Learning to Drive, I see the Indian stereotype treated with honor and maybe even understanding.  I do not follow the Sikh religion nor do I understand it, but the worship was portrayed with reverence.

‘Sharknado 2’ Has A Cast Now!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 12th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

Sharknado

We already know that there was going to be a ‘Sharknado‘ sequel, and that the execs in charge of the film went to Twitter to come up with a title for the second film. Now we have ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One‘, and moves the location from Los Angeles to New York. But now it has its perfect cast, which is all new. And the choices are just amazing and at the same time, ridiculous.

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

Trailer Analysis – Being Flynn

by Justin Cline on Nov 19th, 2011

It’s so hard to imagine why Hollywood would want to change the title of the memoir that provides the basis for Being Flynn.  I cannot fathom the individual who wouldn’t want to see a movie called Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. Read the rest of this entry »

Hi Bryan Here….

I am a huge fan of Brett Easton Ellis.  His novels are amazing.  He wrote ‘American Psycho’, ‘Less Than Zero’, ‘Rules of Attraction’, and ‘Lunar Park’ to name a few.  He is now teaming up with director Paul Schrader to make a film called ‘Bait’ which “follows a young man itching to take his revenge against the wealthy.  The man, who works at a posh beach club, angles his way on to a yacht filled with the obnoxious elite, commandeering it into waters filled with the finned man-eaters.”
