Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Finally, the ‘Andre the Giant‘ documentary that we’ve always wanted is happening with WWE, HBO, and Bill Simmons, which is a hell of a production team right there. This will be a feature length documentary about the wrestling superstar that brought the pro-wrestling business into the big spotlight. Andre Roussimoff was 7’4 and weighed 500 pounds and was one of the biggest names in wrestling. He’s still talked about today. Roussimoff was born in France in 1946 and started wrestling at age 17. He went to Japan, which caught the likes of Vince McMahon Sr. who then signed him to the WWE brand.

It’s almost time for new episodes of ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’ to air on Netflix, which is why we have a Season 3 teaser trailer, and it’s all sorts of fun. Titus Andromendon (Tituss Burgess) turns into Beyonce, making Lemonade to talk about Season 3. It made me laugh.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Kevin Smith is everywhere these days. He’s making movies with food that wants to kill you, podcasting in multiple cities, selling his comic books at his retail stores, and even conducting interviews for IMDB at film festivals. “The guy is like MacGyver. No, motherfucker’s better than MacGyver.” Since his last film ‘Yoga Hosers‘, Smith has been making some DC television series on top of teasing us with stories of a ‘Clerks III‘ film and a ‘Mallrats‘ sequel series, both of which I would have sold my Michael Jackson statue to see.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Halloween-main

We’ve talked about a ‘Halloween‘ remake before here. Hell, Rob Zombie even made two remakes of ‘Halloween‘, which really didn’t live up to anything that resembled a horror film. But that was long ago and we like to forget such films ever took place. The original horror master and filmmaker John Carpenter, who made the original film is putting together a reincarnation of his own film and just announced that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green will be writing and directing the new film. As you probably already know, McBride and Green have a long lasting relationship, as they both worked on ‘Pineapple Express’, ‘Eastbound and Down’, and the recent ‘Vice Principals’.

Film Review: ‘Fifty Shades Darker’!!

by Janet White on Feb 10th, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Fifty Shades Darker - Ana & Christian Elevator

 

Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson), a once sexual novice, returns as a dominant carnal powerhouse. In quite the role reversal, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) transformed into a whimpering little drug addict turned kid in a candy store. Before watching Fifty Shades of Grey, I had not read the novels pinned by E.L. James, not this time. I have listened to all four books (yes, Grey is the 4th, for those not in the know, loved the different perspective it offered). Although the production colored within the lines for the most part, the picture was a bleeding watercolor instead of a vibrant oil.

Film Review: ‘John Wick 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

johnwick2_0

Ever since Keanu Reeves jumped into the role of John Wick in 2014, we all have wanted a sequel in the worst way. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch created a monster of a franchise with that film that brought the action genre back to a high point. That first film had a simple story and some of the best action sequences in a long time. Some bad guys steal John Wick’s car and kill his precious puppy dog a few days after his wife dies. Not knowing John Wick is the best assassin in the world, Wick sets out on revenge and literally kills everybody. It was just so good and showed the world what everyone secretly wants to do if some jerk killed your dog. The first film had a modest budget of only $20 million, but ended up making almost $90 million, which leads us to future sequels.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ came out in 1974 and became one of the scariest and most inspired film ever made. It paved the way for so many filmmakers down the road, that we’ve seen elements in almost every horror film since then. Filmmaker Tobe Hooper was cemented into the horror cinema favorites back then. In the 1980s, he made a sequel, which was tonally and visually different, but was still met with great praise and like its predecessor, became an instant cult classic. From then, there have been a string of sequels, remakes, and prequels, all of which have received mostly poor critical acclaim. Nobody seems to be doing anything right with this franchise.

‘Star Wars’ Spoof Is Coming to a Galaxy Near You!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are the guys mostly known for bringing spoof movies to theaters. They are responsible for the ‘Scary Movie‘ franchise, ‘Epic Movie‘, and ‘Vampires Suck’ to name a few. It was only a matter of time before they got their hands on the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. It’s just so unfortunate that Mel Brooks wasn’t the first on this front to do another ‘Spaceballs‘, which is what we all really want. Well, Friedberg and Seltzer are set to start filming their ‘Star Wars‘ spoof this Fall, titles ‘Star Worlds Episode XXXIVE=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue‘.

Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn are ‘Snatched’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

thumbnail_25315

There is a new trailer for a movie called ‘Snatched‘, which stars Amy Schumer and Goldie Hawn as mother and daughter who vacation in the tropics together, but somehow end up “snatched” and kidnapped by some evil people. So Goldie Hawn came out of retirement to do this movie? It’s been 15 years since we last saw Goldie in a film, but I guess she is passing the torch to Amy Schumer here. The film is directed by Jonathan Levine who made ‘50/50‘, ‘Warm Bodies‘, and ‘The Night Before‘.

Film Review: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’!

Dan M., here….

the_lego_batman_movie_-_batcave_teaser_trailer_screen_shot_-h_2016

The Lego Batman Movie or Deadpool for Families.

When it was released in 2014, The Lego Movie shocked me with how great it was. It was hilarious, had a brilliant concept, and a big reveal that was executed perfectly. It is also one of the few non-Disney/Pixar movies to have a ton of heart. Since that time I’ve seen some Lego Frozen shorts on Disney Channel and some Star Wars Lego stuff thanks to my kids and the humor is pretty top notch. The Lego Batman Movie takes all of these elements and created a truly laugh out loud movie, with a fun story, and some heartwarming moments. It is an A+ family movie.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Beyond Redemption’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

71A-ucjMyYL._SL1004_

THE FILM

Beyond Redemption‘ is an English language martial arts film from Canada that is made by and stars a ton of excellent stuntmen that you’ve all seen in big budget blockbusters over the years. That comes with a bittersweet taste though. On one hand, you have some very good fight scenes that are well choreographed and that pack a punch. On the other hand, the acting, script, and storyline are pretty much rote and lack any real quality in story telling.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

samurai-jack-vs-aku

That’s right. Cartoon Network, or shall I say Adult Swim is brining back ‘Samurai Jack‘, and we have the first trailer for the new season, which is being dubbed as season 5. I was 20 years old when ‘Samurai Jack‘ first aired. I was in college, honing my samurai sword skills, eating fast food, and partaking in the rolling of joints. I don’t know if any of that had an  effect on me in watching ‘Samurai Jack‘, but you can believe I very much enjoyed the show. You can also believe I had no friends, with the exception of my pet gerbil and my He-Man action figures. I still turned out ok. Still, it’s great to see Adult Swim pick up some of the heavy lifting from Netflix in brining back fun TV shows. Now I have to remind my mom to Tivo ‘Samurai Jack’ for me every week.

Film Review: ‘Rings’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

the-ring-the-ring-33255133-853-480

I went back and streamed The Ring to make sure I remembered what the movie was about. Before I started it, I remember that this was a top 10 hand-holding movie back in high school when it came out. I obviously knew that some ghost girl who died in a well would come out a TV and kill anyone who watched a VHS tape. After catching up 15 years later, I can confirm that I have a photographic memory and the entire movie is about watching a tape that sends a creepy girl through the TV to kill you. That girl is named Samara and she is still creepy to look at. Horror movies are such a weird creature because they often contain some really great conflicts. The way to save yourself from being murdered through your TV is to make a copy of the tape and send it on to someone else. The internal conflict of that was actually explored pretty well in the first Ring movie. I was hoping this would be explored more in RINGS so I headed off to the theater.

If there ever was a guitar player besides Jimi Hendrix that should get his own documentary, it should be Eric Clapton. This guy not only produced and created some of the best mix of blues and rock songs, but he did enough cocaine, heroine, and alcohol that would have killed everyone in Bangkok overnight. And those people know how to party with the lady-boys. The documentary is called ‘Eric Clapton: A Life in 12 Bars‘ and will be directed by Lili Fini Zanuck, which sounds like a fake name.

THE FILM

It’s hard to compete with the first ‘Poltergeist‘ film. You had Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind the scenes there with an excellent mix of straight out horror and comedy. You would be laughing at Craig T. Nelson sucking in his stomach in front of the mirror one minute, and scared to piss and back at the clown doll attacking little Robbie. It was simply perfect in every way. Some four years later, the studio decided to make a sequel since the first film did so well critically and financially, and it was called ‘Poltergeist II: The Other Side‘.
