Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The Music of Strangers - Yo-Yo Ma

Everyone wants world peace. However, so few are willing to learn about other cultures and find a way to live and work together, co-exist. Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble have and continue to learn and make beautiful, inspiring music for sixteen years. The Silk Road Ensemble consists of musicians from various countries like Spain, Iran, China, etc., along the historical Silk Road (the link from China to Venice which was utilized to trade silk among other products). Ma and other musicians (Wu Man, Cristina Pato, Kayhan Kalhor, Kinan Azmeh, etc.) brought us The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble, an insight to cultural musical masters from around the globe.

Hey guys, Jana here,

SHOWBIZ Insider 1

Gillian Flynn has been a celebrated author well before ‘Gone Girl‘ hit the big screen, but she’s not limiting herself to only her works when looking at script-writing opportunities. Flynn is in talks to join a remake project with Ben Affleck and David Fincher.

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: BAYWATCH!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

baywatccast

We need to get one thing straight as we start this review. Baywatch is not a movie to be judged on it’s plot. This movie exists in the same realm as Horrible Bosses, Spy, We’re The Millers, 21 Jump Street, & Neighbors. It has just enough plot so that it can get from joke to joke or gag to gag as efficiently as possible. It succeeds in this regard and has a really high “joke landing” percentage. More importantly, as a vehicle for unbelievably attractive people to let loose and be funny, Baywatch goes above and beyond. It is a showcase for these actors to show they’re really, really funny.

Film Review: ‘The Dark Below’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 11th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

the-dark-below-european-poster-horror

Director Douglas Schulze is no stranger to the independent horror genre with films including, Mimesis and Dark Fields, but now, he dives into his next project ‘The Dark Below.’ The film springs right into action where we find Rachel (Lauren Shafer) struggling to break free from the grip of a serial killer Ben (David G.B. Brown). We don’t know exactly why or how this situation has arisen, but as the movie unfolds, you begin to understand this is no random victim, and that these individuals are no strangers to each other either.

The planets have aligned perfectly, up is down, dogs and cats are living together, and now Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg are teaming up once again for a new unscripted show for VH1 called ‘Martha and Snoop’s Dinner Party‘. These two are no strangers, as Snoop and Martha baked “magical” brownies on her show a few years ago. I guess they had more than high times, because VH1 has ordered a 10 episode first season if the show, which will debut in the fall.

Epic List Of The Top 10 Road Trip Flicks!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 3rd, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

tumblr_nx5wmzgYvb1qewpgqo1_500

Summer means a lot to me, there’s baseball, which I waxed pretty poetic about in last week’s Top 10 Baseball Movies post. There’s fishing, the fourth of July, a multi-colored tongue from Otter Pops, and the all important road trip. Your trip can be a short jaunt to the lake or it can be a days long event that usually culminates in an epic destination – Wally World, anyone? Whether you trip on your own, with your friends or with your family, there’s something wonderful about having a full tank of gas, a stereo full of tunes and the open road in front of you. Depending on who you’re with it can either feel like a hostage situation or a relaxing break from the weekly drag. Most good road trips feel like a bit of both, not to mention the longing for the comfort that is your home toilet.

I’m gonna count down my top 10 movies that feature a road trip. Strap in, kick on the A/C and let the lull of the road below you relaxes your worries. This was not an easy list to winnow down to only 10 with a few honorable mentions. I left off the obvious ‘Thelma and Louise‘, they’re best friends, they kill someone and drive off a cliff. Yeah, I didn’t give you a spoiler alert there because if you haven’t seen this movie by now, you were never going to. Some road trip movies are better than others and we had differing opinions from each other making this list. So read along and tell me where we agree or disagree or what I’ve left out.

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 13th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

CfxfNIBUAAA0kUo (1)

Record Store Day 2016 is coming up this weekend, so I thought I’d talk with one of my favorite Record Companies Varèse Sarabande on what we can expect from them this year. I talked with Cary Mansfield, who is the Vice President of Catalog over at Varèse Sarabande. They are releasing FIVE different albums this year for Record Store Day and we go into detail on each release. We also discuss the importance of Record Store Day, how Record companies decide on what to release, and how the whole process works.  It was a fun and lively interview for sure. We even talk about some upcoming releases that will sure knock your socks off, including ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday‘!

Hey guys, Jana here,

We always get a little excited when April rolls around and believe me it’s not because it’s tax season. We, at Boomstick.com love music as well as movies, and every April brings us… Record Store Day! The vinyl junkies of the world take in a deep breath as they step into a record store and the joy of that scent is similar to that of a bibliophile upon entering a library.

When Quentin Tarantino casts a movie, he pulls out all the stops and fills the project with Hollywood’s A-List, and ‘The Hateful Eight‘ is no exception. The project brought together some Tarantino favorites and some new to his work. Samuel L. Jackson, Kurt Russell, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Walton Goggins, Demian Bichir, Tim Roth, Michael Madsen and Bruce Dern are the top-billed names and they make a fantastic ensemble that make up ‘The Hateful Eight‘ and you can bring it home on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD and On Demand on March 29, 2016.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

We finally have a good long trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s new film ‘The Hateful Eight‘, and boy does it look amazing. Then again, what Tarantino film isn’t amazing? I hope Tarantino never stops making films. Official Synopsis: In THE HATEFUL EIGHT, set six or eight or twelve years after the Civil War, a stagecoach hurtles through the wintry Wyoming landscape. The passengers, bounty hunter John Ruth (Russell) and his fugitive Daisy Domergue (Leigh), race towards the town of Red Rock where Ruth, known in these parts as “The Hangman,” will bring Domergue to justice.

Film Review: ‘Diary of a Teenage Girl’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

diary-of-a-teenage-girl-4

The Diary of A Teenage Girl‘ sounds like it’s a bubble gum pop movie with the latest MTV stars, void of any real emotion or reality, complete with the worst of music today. Fortunately for everyone involved, that’s not the case here with Marielle Heller’s great film, ‘The Diary of A Teenage Girl‘. This indie movie is just full of surprises as we get a graphic glimpse inside the life of one high-schooler’s sexual encounters over the course of about a year. Based on Phoebe Gloeckner’s graphic novel and set in 1970’s San Francisco, the first moment of the film has our main character Minnie (Bel Powley) narrate to us that she just had sex for the first time as she’s walking through the park.

Ten Great Lesser-Known Films Starring Big Name Actors!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 7th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

Green_street_hooligans

You might find yourself reading the following list, thinking “Hey! I’ve seen all these movies! How dare you claim them to be ‘lesser-known’!” My response to you, should you say such a thing, is “congratulations.” You see, just because you are a film nut like me, doesn’t mean that the rest of the populace is. The following is a list of ten good films with big-named actors that somehow slipped under the general radar. I’m not saying they are completely unknown, but based upon ticket sales, it certainly seems like they slipped the notice of the general public. These are all solid films that, should you enjoy these actors, you definitely want to check them out (the films, not the actors – although to each their own, I guess).
