Godzilla: King of the Monsters – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2019

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters receives a passing grade, because the monster fights really are that great!”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a frustrating mix of incredible special effects and monster fights with far too much Lifetime Network style human drama. As a fan of the first (new) Godzilla (2014) I was extremely excited for this one. I understood that in the first one the reason for limited Godzilla scenes was to create suspense and save money and I assumed that after the reveal of the first one this one would stray away from the issues of the first. Instead it doubles down on them by adding more useless human subplots, far too many human characters, and a story that (even for a giant monster movie) is just going through the motions.

Hey guys, Jana here,

themonster_bd_3dFrom the director of ‘The Strangers‘ comes another movie that gets you in touch with fear at a very primal level, ‘The Monster‘. Bryan Bertino knows how to generate amazing scares on the big screen, the aforementioned Strangers had me double and triple checking locks for weeks because I was sufficiently spooked. The trailer for ‘The Monster‘ looks to hit me even moreso right in the feels because of the mother/child aspect.

Film Review: ‘Monster Trucks’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

Joel H., here…

monster-trucks-movie-cgi-creature

Remember what it was like to dream? I’m not referring to our current dreams of better jobs, or more money, or a new car, but dreaming without restriction? As a kid, I dreamed several times of experiencing that bicycle flight in front of the moon with E.T. at the helm. I dreamed of discovering pirate gold and sneaking a kiss from my older brother’s girl like Mikey. I sat in spaceships and fighter jets made of cardboard boxes. I gave life and personality to a slew of GI Joe’s, even little green army men with no functional limbs. I dreamed. There was no lack of depth to those dreams. No impending Trump administration. No knowledge that the guns used for pretend are replicates of actual war machines taking lives every single day. My simple imagination was rampant without knowing otherwise, but I grew up.

Film Review: ‘A Monster Calls’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 4th, 2017

Dan M., here…

A Monster Calls’ is a kid version of ‘Manchester by the Sea’. I mean that in the nicest way possible. As one of 15 alleged movie fans in America who didn’t love ‘Manchester by the Sea’ (I hope this doesn’t hurt my review street cred) it is important for me to compare these two films, which at their core, deal with loss, grief, and growing up. The amazing part for me is that I think ‘A Monster Calls’ tackles these themes and issues in a more effective manner.

Film Review: ‘Money Monster’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2016

Liz T., Here…

money+monster

Jodie Foster has proven yet again that she is a force to be reckoned with both in front of and behind the camera with Money Monster, which stars George Clooney and Julia Roberts. The premise is familiar, so stop me if you’ve heard this one. A large investment firm loses millions of dollars, leaving investors confused and looking for answers. In this case, the firm is IBIS, and Kyle Budwell (Jack O’Connell) refuses to accept that the loss of his life savings is due to a “computer glitch.” Budwell is determined to find out the truth and takes financial talk show host Lee Gates (Clooney) hostage in an attempt to get answers and discover the real story.

A ‘Monsterpocalypse’ is Coming!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 29th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

monsterpocalypse_now_wallpaper_by_squidtentacle

The major Hollywood studios are in a giant bidding war for the rights to the board game ‘Monsterpocalypse‘, which is a board game from Privateer Press that resembles Guillermo Del Toro’s film ‘Pacific Rim‘, where humans get into giant sized robots to fight large monsters. With the success of ‘Pacific Rim‘, it’s no surprise that a ton of studios want in on this cash cow and make it a franchise project, which is exactly what the studios are looking to do.

After hearing that Tom Cruise has been set to star in ‘The Mummyreboot, it should come as no surprise that a huge name like Johnny Depp would be attached to ‘The Invisible Man‘ reboot. When Universal sets its mind to creating a movie monster universe that makes us think Marvel, they come out of the gate swinging. First Cruise, now Depp, what is next and who is behind this? Angelina Jolie for ‘Bride of Frankenstein‘ maybe?

Movie Quotes

Vincent Hanna:
You know, we are sitting here, you and I, like a couple of regular fellas. You do what you do, and I do what I gotta do. And now that we've been face to face, if I'm there and I gotta put you away, I won't like it. But I tell you, if it's between you and some poor bastard whose wife you're gonna turn into a widow, brother, you are going down.
Neil McCauley:
There is a flip side to that coin. What if you do got me boxed in and I gotta put you down? Cause no matter what, you will not get in my way. We've been face to face, yeah. But I will not hesitate. Not for a second.
