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…

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.

4K UHD Review: Tomb Raider (2018)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 14th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Dan Moran.)

Well the streak remains intact. There still hasn’t been a good video game movie. Tomb Raider isn’t a horrible time at the movies but it sure isn’t a good one. You know that old saying “You can’t put lipstick on a pig.”? Well you can’t put great actors in a video game movie either… its still a damn video game movie.

Film Review: ‘Tomb Raider’ (2018)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 14th, 2018

In 2013 Square Enix came out with a new Tomb Raider game, a reboot of the original game that was released in 1996. Now it’s 2018 and Square Enix is giving us a movie based on the reboot game, and is itself a reboot of a film series from 2001. Still with me?  I know, time is a flat circle.

We’ve got the latest trailer for ‘Tomb Raider’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 18th, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here, 

It’s a new year and we’re a few days closer to the debut of the ‘Tomb Raider‘ reboot which will hit theaters March 16. The film comes from Norwegian film director Roar Uthaug (‘The Wave‘, ‘Escape‘), while the screenplay comes from screenwriters Alastair Siddons (‘Trespass Against Us‘), and Geneva Robertson-Dworet. Her credits include some pretty big up and coming flicks like a ‘Dungeons & Dragons‘ film, ‘Captain Marvel‘, ‘Gotham City Sirens‘, and ‘M.A.S.K.: Mobile Armored Strike Kommand‘.

To carry out the visions of these filmmakers, they’ve brought an amazing cast on board. Alicia Vikander will take over the Lara Croft role, with Kristin Scott Thomas, Hannah John-Kamen, Walton Goggins, and Dominic West all lending their talents to this big-screen spectacle.

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.
