DIFF 2014 Film Review: ‘Brazilian Western’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2014

Claire S., Here…

 brazilian-western-tiff-review-header-graphic

Brazilian Western” is René Sampaio’s debut feature length film, which is loosely based on a legendary Brazilian folk song titled, “Foroeste Caboclo.”  Don’t be fooled by the title. This is not a traditional Western by any means. Instead, the film is a little bit “Scarface”, a little bit “Romeo and Juliet”, and a little bit “The Unforgiven”.  This may sound like a strange combination with too much going on, but it actually works.  And oddly enough, despite the ultra-violent scenes in the film and the depressing ending, the one word I keep using to describe this film is “fun”.

My Favorite Movies Released in 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2018

The year of 2018 has come to a close and over the past 365 days, I’ve seen roughly 175 new films that were released.  I had a ton of fun watching each and every single one of them, even if I came out sour towards a film. There were a ton of great films this year that ranged from big action blockbusters, emotional indie dramas, scary-as-hell films that still haunt me, and some laugh out loud movies that always put me in the right mood. I’d chalk 2018 as a winner in the movie business, because there are some films that came out that I will truly cherish for a long time to come.

TV Review: The New ‘JACK RYAN’ Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2018

This weekend I had the time to watch the entire first season of Amazon’s new series Jack Ryan. Growing up I enjoyed all of the Harrison Ford versions of Jack Ryan and even liked the Ben Affleck iteration. The reboot attempt with Chris Pine fell pretty flat for me a few years back but I’ve always enjoyed the character. John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is a perfectly serviceable TV hero but is really bogged down by the story around him. In an effort to be optimistic, I will say that I am hopeful for the second season.

LP Review: ‘Luke Cage Season 2’ Soundtrack!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2018

 

Marvel is certainly on a roll with their content over this past decade with their billion dollar movies and their successful television shows across multiple platforms. One of these shows is called ‘Luke Cage‘, which just debuted its second season on Netflix. Luke Cage was the first black superhero in comic books to be featured as the main protagonist with his name as the title. Cage is an ex-convict who was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit who was experimented on, thus creating his superpowers of strength and unbreakable skin. Once he hones in on these powers, he basically becomes a hero for hire and is one of the coolest characters in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Film Review: ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2018

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a stunningly topical sequel that almost lives up to the original. I personally had Sicario in my top 3 movies of 2015. The first Sicario is a masterpiece from one of the best writers, Taylor Sheridan, and best directors (Denis Villeneuve) of our time. Sheridan wrote this sequel and has now put together 4 straight incredible crime/western scripts in a row: Sicario, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and now Sicario: Day of the Soldado. It is a worthy follow up to the original and one of my favorites of the year.
