Bryan Finds Out He’s ‘Unknown’!!! (A Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 13th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Here is a little film starring Liam Neeson, January Jones, and Diane Kruger.  A pretty great cast to start with and an interesting enough story line.  Does it work?  Ina way, yes it does.  I’ll say this off the bat.  Many people will compare and bring up Liam Neeson’s prior film, ‘Taken’.  Let me assure you, this  is not ‘Taken’, nor is it as good as ‘Taken’.  Sure it is a fun thrill ride to watch, but it ends up being a “by the book” amnesia film with really no plot twist or turn after the first half of the film.  That being said, ‘Unknown’ is still fun ride to watch.

Hi Bryan Here….

So yes.  I chose to screen this movie.  Before I walked in, I expected an absolute 91 minute eye gouging debacle.  But to my surprise, it really wasn’t all that terrible.  I mean don’t get my wrong.  I do not ever want to see this again, but kids everywhere are going to love this movie.  And it won’t be a bore to the parents either.  ‘Judy Moody and the Not Bummer Summer’ works for kids.  They will enjoy it.

Hi Bryan Here….

There is so much to like about this film.  I wish the filmmakers of the current generation would stop for a second and take a good look at ‘Super 8′ and take notes.  Everything is there.  J.J. Abrams directed ‘Super 8′ with his childhood hero producing….Steven Spielberg.  This is what filmmaking used to be like.  I know a lot of you will be comparing this film to the likes of ‘E.T.’ or ‘Goonies’.   You might say it brings quite a bit of nostalgic feelings from growing up.  And to me, that is what makes ‘Super 8′ so amazing.

Hi Bryan Here….

The sequel to the hit comedy ‘The Hangover’ is out in all theaters and is definitely funny, but with a price.  I know most of you have seen the sequel already and yes I am late getting this review out, but I have had tons of things going on.  But alas, the review is here.  First thing to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that you will most definitely laugh wildly all the way through the film.  The second thing you need to know about ‘The Hangover Part II’ is that it is the exact same film as the first ‘Hangover’ movie to a tee, except it takes place in Thailand rather than Vegas.

Hi Bryan Here….

Ever since I watched the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’, I often thought about how the film could reach people emotionally and show people how beautiful everything is.  Not to mention, how it would affect how people could and would perceive what is possible with cinema today.  Also, as I was watching the film and after I viewed the film, I couldn’t help but bring my own personal emotions, history, and experiences to the film.  I have a feeling that a lot of people will do the very same.  To put it simply, Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ is the most impressive and magnificent visual portrait of history and life ever put on film.  I wish I could buy the world a ticket to see this film.

Hi Bryan Here….

I am so delighted to be seeing this on DVD for the first time.  I love watching old cartoons from the 60’s.  And ‘Frankenstein Jr. and the Impossibles’ was so much fun.  There were only two seasons with less than 20 episodes in all, but the rock music/action hero cartoon packed each episode with tons of great fun.  It reminds me of ‘Fraggle Rock’ meets ‘Partridge Family’ in the vein of Hanna-Barbera.  This cartoon series also made for some of the most bizarre animated sequences I might have ever seen.  I witnessed a giraffe running upright on two legs with a gun and jumps into an art easel to disappear.  No, I was not on that acid you gave me last year.  Just loads of Dr. Pepper.

Bryan Journeys Into Mystery With “Thor”!!! (A Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on May 8th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

The Almighty Thor is finally here.  Marvel’s next feature film in their line of super-hero films revving up for the huge epic “Avengers” film may surprise you.  Thor is great.  It’s very different from the past Marvel films, but different is very good.  Especially for a hero like Thor.  What makes Thor different from the other Marvel Super-Heroes in films is that Thor is not from Earth nor is he really a human.  He is a GOD.  And when I think of Thor my brain usually goes to the Greek Mythology place and to that Shakespearean universe.  So it was only too perfect that Shakespearean vet, Kenneth Branagh would be the director for this epic film of Thor.

Hi Bryan Here….

This release of Abbott and Costello Meet Captain Kidd is just outstanding.  Over the years Abbott and Costello were on their adventures they managed to meet The Mummy, Frankenstein, and The Invisible Man ant not mention when they went to the planet Mars.  I think this particular film is one that fans and really all of us have been waiting for.  It’s one of the ultimate rare “grails” to the Abbott and Costello universe.  One of the many reasons being is that it stars Charles Laughton paying Captain Kidd which is just genius.

PURCHASE THE FILM HERE FOR ONLY $19.95!!!

Hi Bryan Here…

One of the best films in the last 50 years.  Right at the top of that list.  Robert De Niro is fucking brilliant in this movie.  I can’t believe this movie has not been released on bluray yet.  This film is unrelenting, unmerciful, brutal, and all kinds of AWESOME.  A MUST OWN MOVIE.

Hi Bryan Here….

The original Tron film is hands down a classic.  It is all sorts of badass.  Disney really knew what they were doing with the whole digital age and video games.  The characters in their suits are iconic now.   Tron is a film I can watch over and over again and never get tired of it.  It is great to have it on bluray finally.

Bryan Finds A.I. Artificial Intelligence!!! (A Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 26th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

I remember when this film came out and the months that led up to its release.  First off, this was to be Kubrick’s next film following Eyes Wide Shut.  He had storyboards and production art for this film already.  Kubrick wanted to work on A.I. with Spielberg and they went back and forth with each other on who would direct and who would produce.  But sadly, Kubrick passed away before Eyes Wide Shut was released and Kubrick’s wife said in a press conference that Spielberg was going to helm the project himself in tribute to her late husband.  Spielberg pretty much had no option.

I must say that The Kessler Theater in Oak Cliff is one of my favorite venues.  The place has everything going for it.  They have a great bar, great food, and some excellent acoustics.  Seeing the awe inspiring New Orleans Rebirth Brass Band at the Kessler was a true musical experience.
