Hi everyone, Bryan here….

One of the best action films of all time is getting remade. That’s right, Gareth Evans‘ ‘The Raid: Redemption‘ from 2011 is getting remade from XYZ Films, who surprisingly made the original film. Before we yell “Hell-Fire and Damn” on everything, let’s take a look at what we know. Gareth Evans himself is backing and producing this remake with Joe Carnahan (The Grey) directing  Frank Grillo (The Purge 2) in the lead role. I’m all for this remake now. Carnahan also made ‘Smokin’ Aces‘, the remake of ‘The A-Team‘, and ‘Narc‘, which is to say the least is an impressive resume.

Film Review: ‘The Raid 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 10th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

raid2kitchen

The only thing you need to know  about ‘The Raid 2: Berandal‘ is that you need to run to the nearest theater that’s playing ‘The Raid 2: Berandal‘ and watch it. This is the sequel to 2011’s ‘The Raid: Redemption‘ by Gareth Evans, and is even better than its first literal non-stop hardcore action movie from only a few years ago. This time around, we have a 2.5 hour film full of some of the best action sequences and fight choreography ever put on film. In addition to that, we have one hell of story to go with it, which was mostly lacking from the first film, which I’m not complaining about at all.

‘The Raid 2’ Trailer is Here!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

The teaser I just viewed from The Raid 2: Berandal is an onslaught to the senses. The trailer definitely didn’t give too much away, if you want to know what it’s about, you’re going to have to read about it. The movie picks up 2 hours after the first one ends. Expectations are definitely high for this film as the first one garnered a lot of praise. Writer-director Gareth Evans gives us another corrupt crime syndicate storyline. This one should definitely draw off the popularity and fans of the first movie. I’m really curious how they are going to continue this one 2 hours after the first movie ended.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Ghostbusters_4K_UHD_OutersleeveFrontLeft

“I ain’t afraid of no ghost!” OK, so I AM afraid of a ghost, lucky for me I know who to call to take care of my problems and, on DVD, they deliver. If you didn’t come up with ‘Ghostbusters‘ after that sentence, you need to reboot your life to a time where it’s acceptable for you to pop your Ghostbusting cherry and get on it and may Harold Ramis have mercy on your soul. For the rest of you that totally got GB, you win all the points, you can’t use them for anything but you’re a winner today, dammit.

There are a lot of good movies out there. Hell, there are even some damn near perfect ones, but there are only a small handful of films that fall into the legendary category. These films that have become legend only come around once in a blue moon, but when they do, they tend to hit an emotional cord and stick around forever. I’m sure we can talk for days about what movies fall into this category, but there is one film in particular that definitely belongs here, and I’m willing to bet dollars to donuts that you’ve never even heard of it, nor seen it. Reason being, is that I’m talking about a home movie here. That’s right, a home movie.

‘Tomb Raider’ Coming Back To The Big Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 25th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

lara-crof-tomb-raider

If you don’t remember ‘Lara Croft: Tombraider‘ from 2001 with Angelina Jolie, then you’ve been living in one hell of a bubble. This was one of the first video-game to big screen adaptations that gave fan-boys the world over chubbers when Jolie poured herself into her costume and ran around the set living out every fantasy the game inspired.

The New ‘Raid 2’ Trailer is Kick-Ass!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

theraid2_large

If you haven’t seen the first ‘Raid‘ movie yet, please find it, purchase it, and watch it, for you will have your socks blown off on just how amazing and entertaining it is. It literally is non-stop action with some of the coolest fight scenes ever filmed. We’ve told you before that there was a sequel to this coming out, and that this sequel literally takes place two hours after the events of the first film, which is INSANE!! So here is a great trailer that will fulfill your hopes and dreams that this sequel will be just as badass as the first film. Enjoy the trailer.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Square Enix released some new screen shots from their new highly anticipated ‘Tomb Raider’ game.  These look amazing.  I haven’t really heard or seen to much ‘Tomb Raider’ images since the E3 convention we covered last year.  These look amazing.  Official Synopsis: Tomb Raider explores the intense and gritty origin story of Lara Croft and her ascent from a frightened young woman to a hardened survivor. Armed only with raw instincts and the ability to push beyond the limits of human endurance, Lara must fight to unravel the dark history of a forgotten island to escape its relentless hold.

Hi Bryan Here….

I’ve been looking forward to the Guillermo Del Toro produced horror film ‘Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark’ for quite some time.  No, it isn’t a spinoff or the inspiration from the Nickelodeon show ‘Are You Afraid of the Dark’.  It is a remake of the 1973 made for tv movie of the same name.  I did not know what to expect really from the movie before I watched it.  I was thinking it was going to be all horror, but to my surprise it was a much scarier, more hardcore horror film in the vein of the 80’s film ‘Gremlins’.  This is ultimately a kids film.  A very scary, dark, brutal kids film. When I was 10 or twelve years old, and I watched this, I would have nightmares for months.  This would have scared the shit out of me.

Hi Bryan Here….

“This movie was in mind for a PG-13, but I will say with great honor the non-negotiable R-rating from the MPAA, I wear as a badge of honor,” del Toro quipped before the screening. “Whatever they saw that they thought was ‘R,’ we didn’t want to cut. So I don’t know why, but it’s an R for ‘pervasive scariness.’”  How awesome is that??

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

Film Review: ‘American Assassin’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 15th, 2017

Dan M. here…

You can’t make an action movie like this in 2017 and expect anyone to be impressed with it. Not when studios crank out Bourne, Bond, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, The Raid, etc. Those are movies that execute things at such a high level with passable stories that at least allow you to buy into the character. Hell, even Jack Reacher had some self-awareness to it that made the shrug-worthy, ridiculous, sequel mildly enjoyable. American Assassin is an all-around pretty bad movie but it does have a few bright spots. It honestly felt like the writers watched a Bourne movie, then got high, and played 3 hours of Call of Duty on easy difficulty before putting pen to paper.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Beyond Redemption’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

71A-ucjMyYL._SL1004_

THE FILM

Beyond Redemption‘ is an English language martial arts film from Canada that is made by and stars a ton of excellent stuntmen that you’ve all seen in big budget blockbusters over the years. That comes with a bittersweet taste though. On one hand, you have some very good fight scenes that are well choreographed and that pack a punch. On the other hand, the acting, script, and storyline are pretty much rote and lack any real quality in story telling.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.
