BLUE MAN GROUP – US Tour Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2020

The three blue beings are back on stage in a new show that rocks hard, spews color and senses until emit a big smile. Blue Man Group has been touring since the early 1990s, where they took the world by storm with their odd showcase. Imagine if you were watching STOMP on a far moon of Jupiter with tall blue aliens giving you their own version of rock n’ roll and comedy. That’s Blue Man Group and I’m hear to say that they are still having fun and creating inventive ways to entertain.

TROOP ZERO – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2020

 

“Troop Zero is one group I want to join forever.”

In what of the sweetest, most charming movies made in a long time, Troop Zero follows an unlikely group of elementary school kids in 1977 Georgia to get their voices on a NASA record sent to outer space. Directed by a women duo known as Bert and Bertie, along with screenwriter Lucy Alibar (co-writer of Beasts of the Southern Wild), this coming-of-age comedy has a heart of gold, some charismatic performances led by Mckenna Grace, and a killer soundtrack that all seems perfectly grounded by Viola Davis. You’ll be smiling for days after watching Troop Zero.

Dolittle – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2020

“Dolittle is a fine two-hour escape for January.”

Fresh off of sacrificing himself to save the universe in Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. graces our cinemas with his latest movie ‘Dolittle‘ this weekend. Clearly feeling the goodwill from Iron Man, RDJ decides to employ the strangest accent for his new hero. Dolittle is a perfectly passable family movie in the dumping ground of January movies. It is PG, it is short, and it has a few amusing moments to keep the family entertained on a cold weekend.

Bad Boys For Life – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2020

“Bad Boys for Life is a blast.”

“Shit just got real.” Bad Boys for Life is the third installment in this movie franchise that has Will Smith and Martin Lawrence partnering up once again, telling jokes, driving fast vehicles, and killing the bad guys. The first film was released 25 years ago with the second film debuting 17 years back, both of them made by Michael Bay. It’s a new decade and era, and even though Will Smith hasn’t aged a day since the Clinton administration, Michael Bay is nowhere to be found behind the scenes here. In fact, two relatively unknown Belgian filmmakers, Adil El Arbi and Bilall Fallah have taken the reigns and made a thrilling, funny, and somewhat heartfelt Bad Boys film, one that has consequences and brings more development to these two hilarious characters. It’s no wonder Arbi and Fallah are tackling Beverly Hills Cop 4 with Eddie Murphy next. But with Bad Boys for Life, you can expect the usual action set pieces, but with some added heart and soul to the mix, which is a very welcome addition and breathes new life into this film series.

The world is fascinated with celebrity gossip both in film and sports. You can’t turn a page or watch a show without someone talking about these famous people’s personal lives. Within this culture, there is bound to be criminal activity and as we’ve seen with the entertainment industry and sports, there are quite a few nasty stories of prominent figures abusing and murdering people. I can point to O.J. Simpson as the classic tale of this situation, but we all know how that ended up. No, it’s with former NFL player Aaron Hernandez that takes the cake as it seems like no other prominent figure in sports had this much trouble and fell from a lucrative career as much as he did. Thanks to Netflix, we now have the fantastic three-episode true-crime documentary series Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron of Hernandez to give us more insight into what happened.

Film Review: ‘Like a Boss’!!

by Janet White on Jan 10th, 2020

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Never mix friends with money or so the saying goes.  Mia (Tiffany Haddish) and Mel (Rose Byrne) say whatever to that.  Inseparable since school days, surely nothing could go wrong now.  They were well on their way, created a cosmetics line, opened a store, and they had each other.  Only they had one more thing that wasn’t working for them, a crap ton of debt.  Enter their blessing from below, Claire Luna (the venerable Salma Hayek).  Promises of wealth and level up action for their business are all around and that is when the chaos begins in Like a Boss.

Just Mercy – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2020

Just Mercy, the adaptation of the novel by Bryan Stevenson, is superb. I say this as someone who read the book, as a criminal defense lawyer, and most importantly, as someone who needs the message of hope now more than ever. As a lawyer who works in this field, I saw the film through a different lens, and I want to preface this review with that caveat. But, this film needs to be seen by people that have nothing to do with the criminal justice system. It’s not just a film for the black community, or for someone touched by the system, or for the disenfranchised- this is a story that needs to be told on a big screen to anyone that is willing to listen. I hope you are all ears.

Underwater – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2020

“He’d let us in, knows where we’ve been. In his octopus’ garden in the shade.” It was a missed opportunity that this Beatles‘ song wasn’t playing throughout Underwater in some sort of slowed, creepy version to build the tension and have fun with the genre. But that’s not Underwater by any means. It’s void of fun, suspense, and any semblance of a plot led by another stale performance from Kristen Stewart. Don’t drown yourself with this PG-13 horror film, but rather learn from it with how NOT to make a good movie.

Underwater – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2020

January is a notorious dumping ground for studios to release their movies they don’t have a ton of confidence in. When I first saw the release date for Underwater I assumed it would be a really poor horror movie they needed to get off the books. Then the ad blitz hit and the marketing really ramped up so I assumed that maybe they had something slightly above average on their hands. Folks, they don’t. Underwater is a predictable, tame, and boring aquatic monster movie that goes through the motions until it mercifully ends.

JOKER – 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2020

THE FILM


Todd Phillips is several oceans removed from his usual comedy escapades (The Hangover trilogy) with his brutally dark, yet brilliant film ‘Joker‘. Those of you who are not particularly fond of the comic book genre these days will still find something amazing in this DC universe that takes place in the 1980s. Joaquin Phoenix gives an unparalleled performance as the titular psychopath with a smile like you’ve never seen him before in pages or on-screen. It’s really something to behold, but then again, Phoenix is always magnificent. The real star of the film is director Todd Phillips himself, who for the first time showed that he can hang with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and Francis Ford Coppola, delivering a picture-perfect account on Joker.
