Film Review: ‘Birdman’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

and-the-oscar-goes-to-could-birdman-be-the-first-superhero-movie-nominated-for-best-picture

It’s a very rare occurrence where a film changes the game on almost every aspect of filmmaking. From acting to camerawork, ‘Birdman‘ literally soars above the rest where fierce emotions of erratic actors are put on display in a chaotic yet darkly comedic setting inside the St. James Theatre on West 44th Street in Manhattan. Not only do these actors turn in Oscar-worthy performances of the highest order, but director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Amores Perros) and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki have given us an image so fresh and that pushes the bounds, that this is one of the most pleasing films of the year, visually speaking and unlike anything you might have seen before. Lubezki has worked with Alfonso Cauron on ‘Children of Men‘ and the recent film ‘Gravity‘.

Film Review: ‘Whiplash’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

whiplash_h_1014

Big sacrifices and the desire to be the best in the world with your skill and art form is both questioned and put to the test in writer/director Damien Chazelle’s phenomenal jazz-infused film ‘Whiplash‘. This movie is focused on jazz music, but closes in on what one individual will go through to be the best in the world with the difficult question being, “Is it worth it?”

Set against the backdrop of a post apocalypse-dystopian world comes the annual Hunger Games! We’ve read the books, watched the first 2 films, elevated Jennifer Lawrence to the new generations ‘It’ girl. She would be the perfect best friend, sister or girlfriend. As the breakout star, Lawrence has her pick of the projects she’s wanted to do, JLaw has shaken things up a bit with her choices, whether they challenged her as an actor, had a dream team she was dying to work with, or if it was just a story she read that she couldn’t wait to tell, fans have stayed close to their new heroine and ticket sales have proven that JLaw will bring the dollars.

‘My Little Pony’ Transitions To The Big Screen!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 20th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

If there’s one thing I love more than ‘The Blues Brothers‘, ‘Doctor Who‘, bacon cheeseburgers and all things Disney, it’s ‘My Little Pony‘. I’m the mom that waits for my kids to go to school, so I can turn on MLP reruns and just kvell in the happiness and saccharine-sweet images of perky, cutesy ponies with equally adorable designs on their butts. If my butt had something that great on it, I’d show it off, too. For the benefit of those that see me, this is not the case. You’re welcome.

Vinnie Jones Co-stars On The CW’s ‘Arrow’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 20th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

Arrow

 

Where Marvel-based comic book films have the leading edge over DC-based films, with character introduction and cross-branding, especially  when you take into the post-film stinger that we’ve all learned to wait for, but DC does have a strong point over Marvel with TV serials. I know, Marvel is getting into the small-screen game, too, but it’s no match for DC’s proven titles that have been drawing in crowds from the beginning. Where Marvel didn’t get into the series racket until 1974 with ‘Super Spidey Stories‘ that aired during small segments of ‘The Electric Company‘, DC began in the 1950’s and has kept producing through the decades.

When it comes to Marvel comic-to-movie VS. DC comic-to-movie transformations, Marvel has a clear leading edge with interlaced storylines and sheer numbers that have been released. It pains me to type that because I am a DC fan. HUGE fan of DC characters, the heroes and their amazing villains. To me, the villains are absolute top notch and beat out anything Marvel can throw out. The colors, the histories, the wicked laughs and plots are perfectly my brand of crazy. Among these vivid characters that leap off the pages are Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Harley Quinn and of course, The Joker.

Hey guys, Jana here,

“Hello, IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again?” If you recognize that line, you will probably be excited about the idea of a remake. I’m talking about ‘The IT Crowd‘, of course. NBC has given a put pilot commitment to the reimagining of a sitcom that aired for 5 seasons. Technically, the show ran for four series of six episodes each, a fifth series was commissioned it was concluded with a one-off episode that aired last year. For those that are unfamiliar with the term “put pilot”, it is an agreement that the host company, NBC in this instance, will air the pilot episode basically ensuring that the serial will be picked up. If the network declines to air the pilot, they will owe a fairly large amount of money to the studio.

Film Review: ‘St. Vincent’!!

Hillary T., Here…

St Vincent Movie

Bill Murray is known for picking unique and out there roles. From what I understand, this role chose him. It’s so perfectly played, that it’s hard to put into words all of the thoughts and feelings I have for this movie.

Short Snap Film Review: ‘Men, Women, and Children’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 16th, 2014

Sara O., Here…

Men-Women-and-Children

There’s something about Men, Women and Children that was just a little too much. I couldn’t quite put my finger on it after I left the theatre—the only clear feeling at that time was an overwhelming sense of hopelessness in humanity.  So you’re officially warned, this is not the Jason Reitman of the hilariously heartwarming Juno.  This is the Jason Reitman who wants to scare the living daylights out of you by showing every worst-case scenario that comes out of people’s obsession with social media and the Internet.
