Jana B. here,

 

Will Forte

Fox is adding to its stable of fantastic television shows with ‘Last Man on Earth‘. Funnyman Will Forte (‘Nebraska‘, ‘Magruber‘, ‘Squirrels To The Nuts‘)  created and will star in the show. Executive producing and directing the pilot are the duo of Phil Lord and Chris Miller from ‘The Lego Movie‘, ‘Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs‘ and ‘Clone High‘. This project is expected to produce 6-10 episodes and is part of Fox chairman Kevin Reilly’s plan to bypass pilot season altogether and go straight to series and cast projects outside of the traditional January-April pilot cycle.

Film Review: ‘The Lego Ninjago Movie’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2017

Hello all, Rebecca here with my take on the newest installment from the Lego film franchise.

The Lego Ninjago Movie reminds me a lot of a tossed salad you would buy at the grocery store, meaning lots of classic flavors that you already love, but always having that one inclusion that tastes funny (I’m looking at you radicchio). Ninjago has the same beautiful CGI/stop motion look from Animal Logic that The Lego Movie and the Lego Batman Movie have, and the same quirkiness, but it lacks the heart of its predecessors.

Film Review: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’!

Dan M., here….

the_lego_batman_movie_-_batcave_teaser_trailer_screen_shot_-h_2016

The Lego Batman Movie or Deadpool for Families.

When it was released in 2014, The Lego Movie shocked me with how great it was. It was hilarious, had a brilliant concept, and a big reveal that was executed perfectly. It is also one of the few non-Disney/Pixar movies to have a ton of heart. Since that time I’ve seen some Lego Frozen shorts on Disney Channel and some Star Wars Lego stuff thanks to my kids and the humor is pretty top notch. The Lego Batman Movie takes all of these elements and created a truly laugh out loud movie, with a fun story, and some heartwarming moments. It is an A+ family movie.

The ‘Lego Batman‘ movie is moving full steam ahead and they’ve got one hell of a cast assigned to the flick, already, but more casting info is still coming in. We gave you the rundown of the latest who’s who that you can read about here. In addition to the already star-studded cast, we’ve got one more for you today and that is who’s going to be voicing Commissioner Gordon and you’re never gonna believe who it is!

*******UPDATE*******

So it looks like Commissioner Gordon will NOT have the voice of this particular angel, but it looks like Carey will be the mayor of Gotham. I wonder if the creators are going to model this character after her voice, and if so – how naked will she be?

Needless to say, the theaters are going to be packed and each studio is going to be vying for the top box office placement and receipts.

Warner Bros. Is Building A ‘Lego Movie’ Sequel!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

The Lego Movie

After the ‘Lego Movie‘ proved to be such a massive blockbuster hit world-wide, Warner Brothers is not letting any of the momentum die down before announcing a sequel. While the details about the coming film are sketchy at best, one thing we know for sure is the release date has been staked out for May 26, 2017, with it being the beginning of the long Memorial Day weekend, we can assume it will be the tentpole for their summer film releases. At this point, this is the only film to claim the release date. So far, the only real thing that has been confirmed is the release date and that it will be the Lego universe. The rumor mill is spinning with whether or not it will be a proper sequel to the film in theaters now or if it will be a Lego Ninjago spinoff.

Film Review: ‘Lego Movie’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 5th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

LEGO

In the past, we’ve seen video games and board games adapted into movies for the big screen. More often than not, these adaptations are usually panned by critics everywhere and let down the fans. Or the film is decent enough for a ‘one-time’ watch, then is completely forgotten. You can say the above about ‘Battleship‘, ‘Street Fighter‘, or ‘House of the Dead‘. ‘Clue‘ might be the only board game adaptation to sustain any sort of fan following, and actually has received a lot of positive remarks since it came out 1985.

The upcoming ‘Lego Movie‘ looks Incredible and hilarious. I didn’t expect it to be this good, but man, after watching this trailer, I cannot wait to see this. Channing Tatum, Will Ferrell, Chris Pratt, Morgan Freeman, Colbie Smolders, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Liam Neeson, and Charlie Day are just some of the few talented actors lending their voices to this movie. And man, it looks funny.

There are a ton of different ‘Star Wars‘ related movies and TV shows nowadays that it’s kind of difficult to keep up with a lot of the different stories being told now. On the kids-friendly version of the ‘Star Wars‘ franchise is the LEGO ‘Star Wars‘ movies, TV shows, and even video games. This brings us to ‘The Freemaker Adventures‘, which is an animated LEGO show that has only two seasons so far with a few animated shorts to go along with it. There is no sign of a third season in sight though, so this season two might be the last we see of this series.

THE FILM

LEGO sure has the market on DC films for kids. This film as the past direct-to-video films have incorporated almost all of the DC heroes to satisfy all fans for all ages. Packed with some great voice-talent that is recognizable to fans, this 78-minute ‘Justice League‘ story is quite entertaining, despite the chaotic pace and silliness. The full title of this film is ‘LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League – Gotham City Breakout‘ and has just about every DC superhero and villain showing up here, along with some new characters.

The success of ‘The Lego Movie‘ ignited a storm of sequels that Warner Bros. have slated for production including ‘Ninjago‘ in 2016, ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ the following year in 2017 and ‘The Lego Movie 2‘ in 2018, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more spinoff based on the yellow blocky people, ‘Billion Brick Race‘.

Top 10 Horribly Cheesy Scenes in Otherwise Decent Movies!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

DirtyDancing3-lg

I am not claiming that all of the following movies are cinematic works of art. Some of these films might be considered mediocre at best. However, they do all have one thing in common; all of them suffer from having that one scene that takes audiences out of the moment and makes them groan in disbelief.  This list includes movies that were meant to be taken seriously. So over-the-top comedies and machismo action flicks will not be found as they are created with the intent of being ridiculous.

 Warner Bros. are trying yet again to revive the Looney Tune franchise. They’ve had moderate success over the past decade with a couple of feature films, and a new series, but they have not come close to making a big blockbuster hit like they used to. But that might all change, considering the talent they have behind this revamp, which they hope to turn a franchise out of it.

I never thought I’d write this sentence, but Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently in talks to star in the reboot of Troma’sToxic Avenger’ film. This project will be introduced to potential buys at Cannes this year of all places. I didn’t think Cannes would take any Troma film. But it looks like this re-imaging of ‘Toxic Avenger‘ will be a big budget project. Steve Pink is taking the reins of the film. Pink directed ‘Hot Tub Time Machine‘ and will direct the sequel. This is odd, but amazing news.

Misty Here….

D&D Basic Mentzer

All the geeks of the world can now rejoice. Warner Brothers has now acquired the rights to create a new movie based off Dungeons and Dragons, the game we all played in school but are ashamed to admit to as adults. The script, called “Chainmail” is already in the works headed by David Leslie Johnson (‘Wrath of the Titans‘). This script was acquired last year as a free-standing project for another game that D& D creators Gary Gynex and Dave Ameson also created. It is now being redone to fit for D & D crowd and being produced by “The Lego Movie” producers Roy Lee and Courtney Solomon. You will remember that Solomon produced the 2000 Dungeons and Dragons film that starred Jeremy Irons. Hopefully, this new one will be better than that hot mess.

Film Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2018

Disney is on a roll these days with their recent ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. Not only do we have the new Episodes, but we are getting spin-off movies that focus on a singular story from the past or a certain character. One character that we all have loved from the original trilogy, but don’t know a great deal about is Han Solo. Sure, we know he was a smuggler, is an anti-hero, loved the princess, and helped save the Galaxy with his wookie partner Chewbacca, as they flew from planet to planet on the iconic Millennium Falcon. Through the original trilogy, we heard small lines of dialogue that gave us the tiniest glimpse at his background and life before he met Obi-Wan and Luke. Fortunately, we now have ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ to answer all of those questions for us.

Ron Howard Shoots Second on Star Wars Han Solo Film!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

960

It’s official now. Ron Howard has taken over directing duties on the upcoming Star Wars untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. Yesterday, we got the unfortunate news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired after creative differences with the studio heads, mainly Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan on the tone of the film. Lord and Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) spent almost five months making this Han Solo film, but again, were fired for having a different style than what the studio was expecting. It sent fans in an uproar for sure and for good reason. It’s ultra rare that studios will fire directors this late in the game.

New Line is looking to partner with Animal Logic (‘The Lego Movie‘) and Tezuka Productions as they work together to produce a live-action movie based on the ‘Astro Boy‘ comic book series. ‘Astro Boy‘ is not a new creation and began as a Japanese manga series from 1951 to 1968 with a vast interest worldwide. The character was adapted to a TV series in both 1980 and 2003 and in 2009 was the subject of an animated movie by Imagi Animation Studios.

scooby_doo

If you’re a child of the 70’s you remember one particular theme song with accurate clarity, ‘Scooby Doo‘, just saying that was probably enough to introduce the earworm that won’t be leaving you anytime soon, you’re welcome. Every creation has it’s own “circle of life” if you will. What’s old then, gets re-packaged and becomes new again. Bell Bottoms were hideous in the 90’s but no one will look at you twice for wearing them today, at least no one looks at me like I’ve just stepped out of a DeLorean when I wear them. Such is the case with Scoob and the gang.

Disney has made the day a big one for announcements and there is one more to add to the list. Disney Channel has put into motion an animated series based on the 2010 feature film, ‘Tangled‘. One of the greatest things that irritated me about a series based on an excellent film is the voices are always different. Kind of close, if we’re lucky, but never quite what we are used to, until now. Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene or Flynn Rider.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Cowell’s quote is this “Betty, I’ve worked with some serious divas but I think you could be the biggest of them all!” What Betty is he talking to? Why Betty Boop, of course!

Will Forte is a renaissance man. We’ve all seen him as a bit player in dozens of different movies. He’s the nose-bleed guy from ‘How I Met Your Mother‘, ‘Saturday Night Live‘, and in a heart-touching role in the Oscar nominated ‘Nebraska‘. Bruce Dern is amazing, but I really think that Forte should have been nominated for an Academy Award, as well.

Warner Bros. Is Developing ‘Space Jam 2’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Space Jam

 Over the weekend, a very trusted news source in Hollywood called Deadline, ran a news story that said, “Lebron James was going to star in the upcoming ‘Space Jam‘ sequel. The article mentioned producers and a studio, which was Warner Bros. A day or so later, Lebron and a couple of people on the NBA side and close to Lebron’s camp refuted the story and basically said this wasn’t happening. But the wording they used was confusing. The sources said that there have been no “substantive discussions”, which means, the deals are not made yet, however talks have happened. It seems like Warner Bros. is definitely making a ‘Space Jam‘ sequel, and they want  Lebron to star in it, but again, no deals have been made yet. In my personal opinion, I think Shaq should star rather than Lebron. Or just get Jordan back. He’s not doing anything. Below is the original story.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

 

 

There’s a new animated TV show out there you may not have heard about. It’s called ‘The Lion’s Blaze‘, which reminds me a bit of Rick and Morty if Rick and Morty was knee deep in video games. Judging by the pilot episode, this new animated series has a ton of potential to compete with the best of the recent animated shows out there. It’s funny, quick, and full of great video game references.

Firstly, this is my first real blog post; inspired by the fact that I finally got to view Gods of Egypt.  This was, like many Egyptian Mythology based movies were, a movie that I was looking forward to finally viewing.  I’m uncertain as to why I decided this was the topic I wanted to delve back into writing for, but here it is.  I feel two ways about it.  I’m going to express initially that I enjoyed it from an objective standpoint, it was fun and colorful and full of some interesting effect that got them right as often as they got them wrong… Giant Heads… #BobbleGods.  Now I’m going to express my displeasure, as anyone who has a passing interest in actual mythology realizes, it’s terrible.  The story is anyway, but the plotline is okay… and personally, I feel the message was all wrong about the afterworld.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

We are at the end of this ‘Hobbit‘ trilogy with ‘The Battle of the Five Armies‘. The last three years seem to have gone by fairly fast. It seems like yesterday when I was writing about Warner Bros. heading back to Middle Earth with the ‘Hobbit‘. I was super stoked about it, because I was such a huge fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy. I think I saw each of those films five times in the theater, owned each version that came out on DVD and Blu-ray, and went back to see them when they were re-released. I just can’t get enough of the ‘LOTR‘ films. But shortly after the announcement that we were receiving a ‘Hobbit‘ film, things started going downhill.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

oscarsnominationsheader

We are only a few days away from the 87th annual Oscar ceremony, which airs live this Sunday. Again, we will be delivering a live commentary full of jokes, trivia, facts, winners, losers, and giving away free gifts throughout the night. So please, keep it right here during the Oscars and use the hashtag #boomstickcomics when posting to social media. But, let’s talk about predictions for a minute. I’m sure some of you have put some money down on Oscar pools at works or with your friends to see who comes out the winner this year. There were some excellent movies this year along with some amazing performances, so needless to say, this year will be extremely difficult to predict.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Kundo’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 8th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

THE FILM

To say all martial arts films are alike, is like saying every potato chip is the same. Sure there’s a base formula, but the good ones add to that recipe to make each film stand out on their own. Take the following films into consideration: ‘Seven Samurai‘, ‘Enter The Dragon‘, ‘IP Man‘, ‘The Karate Kid‘, ‘Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2‘, ‘13 Assassins‘ and any Van Damme movie you want, they are all martial arts films, but they have an entirely unique identity. I grew up on old martial arts films with horrendous English dubbing and every action star there ever was. I developed a deep appreciation for and love of all things Eastern that has carried through my adult life. I was excited to see ‘Kundo‘ and have, in fact, watched it three times.

Attention Batfans, Jana here,

I’m a bonafide Batfan from way back when Wonder Woman and Batgirl were on my knickers. This includes all things batty. Not like regular animal bats, because that would just be weird, or at the very least, awkward. If you call your pad the Batcave and you’re a Batman fan, all is well, if you call it the Batcave because it’s full of real bats, you might need to spend some time in Arkham Asylum. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe…er…well usually.

Film Review: ’22 Jump Street’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

The movie theater chains across America are plagued with sequels, reboots, and remakes these days. It seems like almost every film out there is either a sequel or a remake of an older film, leaving the original indie films left out to dry for the more independent theaters or video-on-demand. While you want these sequels and remakes to be just as good as the original or first film, most of them fall a little short, or are down right terrible. There are only a select few sequels that receive the praise and box office power that have audiences across the globe cheering its name. And I’m happy to report that ‘22 Jump Street‘ falls into that category, maybe even being towards the top of that list.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have a brand new trailer with new footage for ‘22 Jump Street‘, the sequel to 2012’s ‘21 Jump Street‘ reboot that starred Jonah Hill, Channing Tatum, Ice Cube, Rob Riggle, Brie Larson, and Dave Franco. It was a surprise hit and did very well with critics. Phil Lord and Christopher Miller are back directing the sequel, which they are hot off the press tour for their amazing ‘LEGO Movie‘. Michael Bacall is also back as the film’s writer.

Film Review: ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

desolation-of-smaug-dragon

And we’ve arrived in the 2nd year of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy with ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug‘, and let me tell you, it’s a big improvement on the last film, which was released the same time last year. First off, we don’t have to spend a half hour inside Bilbo’s home with thirteen dwarves eating, drinking, and singing songs about washing dishes and Bilbo’s unhappy attitude. In this sequel things start off fast and to the point, which is sure to excite all audiences. Still, adapting J.R.R Tolkien’s less than 300 page novel into three separate films might be a bit much, but damn if it isn’t fun and highly entertaining this time around with a giant fire breathing dragon, some epic battles, a familiar elf, and an escape from orcs that I could watch 100 times in a row and never tire of. Just like the previous films set in Middle Earth, I expect another billion dollars for Jackson and co.

Fernando Travels to ‘Elysium’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 9th, 2013

Fernando, Here….

 Elysium_Damon_still.jpg.CROP.article568-large

In 2009, director Neill Blomkamp surprised the world with his film “District 9,” a sleeper hit that featured insights into racism, xenophobia, and segregation through a very creative science fiction setting.  Four years later, he again puts the sci fi spin into social commentary with “Elysium.”  This time around, Blomkamp has a big budget, big actors, big effects, but not the big impact.

Hi Bryan Here….

Now I’ll be honest.  I have only seen the first Pirates film and now I have seen the latest ‘On Stranger Tides’ film.  I didn’t care much for the first film.  I felt it dragged and was too boring. I know it had a huge budget and was full of adventure, but the adventure and action was less than stellar.  I know I’m the odd man out on this issue as I know tons of friends love this series of films and swear by it, but really never did much for me.  Saying that, I do think Johnny Depp is AMAZING in these films.  He definitely deserves an Oscar WIN.  Other than that and maybe the fact that Keith Richards has a little something to do with the films, I just can’t get into it.  Same rings true for this ‘On Stranger Tides’ sequel.  Yes, it had a bit more thrill and fun, but ultimately fell short.  I wish I felt differently.  I really want to like these movies, but sadly I can’t do it.
