‘Game of Thrones’ Is The Last TV Show of Its Kind!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 9th, 2019

Television has always been a cultural touchstone for me growing up. I remember the rush home to catch the season finales of Lost and 24 so I wouldn’t miss out on the conversation the next day. When my wife was in college I bought her a DVD recorder that we would set on a timer to record shows on to a blank DVD. When TIVO and recording came around it was a Godsend. This is how television has always been to me. The collective pop culture experience that would take the next day at work discussing everything we all watched together. I understand this way of consuming media has been dying for years but it struck me a few days ago that April and May are the true end of an era, specifically with Game of Thrones.

‘The Best of Enemies’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2019

The Best of Enemies is yet another film hitting theaters that tackles race relations and bills itself as a feel good comedy of sorts. Last year we got Blackkklansman and Green Book, two very different takes, and yet both wrapped up the systemic racism with pretty bows and left viewers feeling pretty good about the outcomes. The Best of Enemies is no different, as it’s based on a true story and attempts to show how even the most racist among us can change their ways. It’s an enjoyable movie; the performances are strong, and the story is a good one, but if you had a beef with Green Book for the way it portrayed race, you will probably take issue with The Best of Enemies, too.

‘Pet Sematary (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2019

The ‘Pet Sematary’ remake is downright bad in just about every way possible.

Since Stephen King’sIT‘ remake was a highly commercial and critical success, film studios are scrambling as fast as they can to remake all of Stephen King’s work to cash in on that newly found interest once again. The latest remake in the King universe is ‘Pet Sematary‘, from relatively new filmmakers Kevin Kölsch and Dennis Widmyer. Now I remember reading King’s book long ago, but I admit it has been a while since I read the whole thing, however, the important plot details and themes still resonated clearly in present day. Mary Lambert’s vision in the original 1989 movie adaptation still holds up as well in most sequences, taking the tone of King’s book and translating it well to film. There are still iconic scenes that scare me in the dark from that original movie. With this new 2019 remake though, everything looks cheap, including the scares, which come across as silly and laughable, and is downright bad in just about every way possible.

‘Shazam!’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 3rd, 2019

“Finally! DC has made a fun movie!”

It’s easy to see that the executives at Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been listening to the fans in wanting funnier and more light-hearted superhero films after the super dark and very adult previous films. With ‘Aquaman‘, they literally threw in everything and the kitchen sink into that film to bring a wild, chaotic affair that was silly, yet fun in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way. There is much more of a balance with ‘Shazam!‘ and dare I say it in my most impressive imitation of WWE’s The Rock – “Finally! DC has made a fun movie!” I stand by that statement too as odd choice in director David S. Sandberg (‘Lights Out‘ and ‘Annabelle: Creation‘) took his cues from Tom Hanks‘ 1980s film ‘Big‘ and made a large budget superhero movie out of it, set in the universe of The Justice League. Everyone in the film looks to be having a great time on screen with their respective characters and it transfers to smiles and laughs in its audience.
