Dan Brown’s novels, beginning with ‘The Da Vinci Code’, have made excellent fodder for some seriously successful films. The old adage is true, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This seems to be the way Sony is viewing their franchise based on Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.  Tom Hanks, director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer have all signed on to the third installment in the series which follows ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ and ‘Angels and Demons‘, ‘Inferno‘.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks Teaming Up Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 22nd, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

09-steven-spielberg-tom-hanks-1

I’m like any other film-lover and I have favorite directors that I will religiously watch anything they turn out. I love the films of Joss Whedon, Cameron Crowe, Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg among others. Spielberg took a bite out of fame with one of my absolute favorite movies of all-time, ‘Jaws‘ in 1975. Yes, another thing I love is a pun, no matter how bad it can be. Spielberg has far too many epic films to count without devoting a whole article to the greatness that is Spielberg. Some of the highlights are ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial‘, the ‘Indiana Jones‘ films, ‘Schindler’s List‘…and on and on and on.

Tom Hanks Headed to the Broadway Stage!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 9th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Tom Hanks is in final talks to make his Broadway debut next year in a new play by Nora Ephron.  If this all goes to plan, Hanks has a chance to win a Tony.  “Mr. McAlary, a hard-charging journalist who became one of the most popular tabloid newspaper writers in recent city history, died from colon cancer in 1998, at 41. He covered crime and cops and the major police department corruption scandals of the 1980s and 90s, perhaps most famously the Abner Louima brutality case, which won him the 1998 Pulitzer Prize for commentary.”

The-Walking-Dead-Season-3-Episode-16-Video-Preview-Season-Finale-Welcome-to-the-Tombs-622x350

What a great season finale of “The Walking Dead”! There is a lot to talk  about between Rick vs the Governor, Carl vs. Rick and of course all the people that died. Lets get to it!  The scene begins with a pulsating pupil of an eye. As the camera pulls out, you realize it is The Governors eye and that he is in the process of beating up someone. He is talking to the person about all the risks he took with killing the biters. A man replies that he was going to use them on whoever showed up. The Governor replied that he was and that eight of his men died. The Governor then takes another swing and the camera points to Milton taking the blow. The Governor states about how he kept him safe and feed. Milton replies with at as long as he turns the other way. Milton asks him what would his daughter think of the man he has become.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Seriously people.  What the fuck?  The worst movie of all time is re-released in theaters in 3D and rakes in $73.4 million dollars in two weeks.  Did you think the movie somehow over time became better?  This is beyond belief.  So far ‘Episode 1’ has made over 1,009.4 billion dollars which will soon pass ‘The Dark Knight’ for the number 10 top grossing movie of all time. $1.5 million away to be exact.  So you know it’s going to happen.

Film Review: ‘Sully’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

sully_still

We all remember what took place in New York on January 15th, 2009. Pilots Captain Chelsey ‘Sully’ Sullenberger and First Officer Jeffrey Skiles took an Airbus A320 with 155 passengers aboard out of LaGuardia Airport to their destination. However, a couple of minutes after takeoff, a freak accident with a flock of birds took out both engines of the airplane, leaving the Airbus without any power and no airport immediately in range to land. Making a calculated decision to save everyone’s life, Sully was forced to land the plane in the very cold waters of the Hudson River.
