4H UHD Review: ‘Inception’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Every once in a blue-moon, a movie comes out that feels refreshing, original, and entertains us on a certain level that we won’t soon forget. Of of those movies is ‘Inception‘, directed by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight). As Nolan was making his Dark Knight (Batman) trilogy, he made a movie in between each sequel. One of them was this film and it truly shines out of all the rest. It brings something everyone does for half their life and makes a thrilling and smart film out of it. ‘Inception‘ involves sleeping and dreaming, but with certain technology, you can be in control of your dreams, and even connect to other people’s dreams and plant an idea in their heads that might make them change their way of thinking. That’s the point of ‘Inception’. It’s quite brilliant.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

We are at the end of this ‘Hobbit‘ trilogy with ‘The Battle of the Five Armies‘. The last three years seem to have gone by fairly fast. It seems like yesterday when I was writing about Warner Bros. heading back to Middle Earth with the ‘Hobbit‘. I was super stoked about it, because I was such a huge fan of the ‘Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy. I think I saw each of those films five times in the theater, owned each version that came out on DVD and Blu-ray, and went back to see them when they were re-released. I just can’t get enough of the ‘LOTR‘ films. But shortly after the announcement that we were receiving a ‘Hobbit‘ film, things started going downhill.

Film Review: ‘The Attorney’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

The_Attorney_poster

Director Yang Woo-seok did a great job with his first outing with ‘The Attorney‘, the South Korean flick that has gone on to be one of the biggest films in the country. The movie is based on the real events of Roh Moo-hyun, who was South Korea’s ninth president, who later became an activist. The performances are top notch from everyone involved with Song Kang-ho (‘The Host‘) giving  his best performance to date. This two-hour films deserves a wider release state-side.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘My Way’!!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

Je-kyu Kang’s ’My Way’ is not just a film you watch, it’s a full emotional experience.  ’My Way’ will take you on a moving journey through several countries and languages as you grown a bond with the two main characters.  This is Korea’s most expensive film to date and you will immediately see that.  ’My Way’ is epic on all levels.  This is one of the better films I have seen in recent memory and most definitely the best film dealing with war-time since Spielberg’s ‘Saving Private Ryan’.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Wrath of the Titans’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 30th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I had the distinct displeasure of seeing ‘Wrath of the Titans’ this week.  This sequel to the remake of ‘The Clash of the Titans’ is a complete and utter sad disaster on every level of filmmaking.  I haven’t seen a film willingly destroy itself in every way in a long time.  I’m really not sure what the filmmakers and execs were going for with ‘Wrath of the Titans’, but if they wanted an all out jumbled mess of a film, then they succeeded.  As one of my friends who screened the film with me said, “I expect nothing from this film.”  Well, we got nothing from ‘Wrath of the Titans’.  The screen might have well been a blank screen for two hours, because then maybe my imagination could have projected something better than my eyes viewed.

Hi Bryan Here….

WOW.  This was a mighty mighty fun blu-ray set to get through.  Took a while as there are hours and hours of extras and commentaries to listen and watch.  It was great watching all of these again.  Some greater than others.  I haven’t watched all of the Superman films since that tin DVD box set came out several years ago.  Oh man do these newly remastered blu-rays look fucking beautiful in HI-DEF.  So, this particular review will be set up by film.  I will go through all eight discs of the set and outline everything you would ever want to know about them.  From the movie itself to the extras and the audio and video quality.  This is one hell of a set and Warner Bros. and DC went above and beyond the call of making one AWESOME home video release in Superman.

Dan Moran’s Top Films of 2018 and his Award Nominations!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2018

This year I saw 102 new movies in 2018. That number is actual movies released in 2018. I count Netflix and streaming movies released this year because that is where we are heading but the majority of the 102 was in movie theaters. I decided not to rank my top movies this year because at the end of the day the difference between #10 thru #3 is usually based on my mood when I write the list. So I just put my top movies in ABC order.

Blu-ray Review: ‘A Wrinkle In Time’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 30th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein!)

I really wanted to like A Wrinkle in Time more than I did. I gave it my best shot, but in the end, the only thing I can honestly say was that it had lots of great colors. Perhaps it was my high expectations for a Disney film, plus Oprah Winfrey and Mindy Kaling that set me up for disappointment, but regardless, I was left feeling let down in a film that I knew practically nothing about. I have never read the 1962 Madeleine L’Engle novel, so I honestly had no clue what the plot was but whatever, it’s Disney, it’s gonna be good. Well…

Film Review: ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2018

Comedians have routinely had a tough time shaking their labels as depthless clowns, but lately some are rejecting that type-cast in cinema and using their own material to change the minds of the public. Breaking away from his best known work as Jim in ‘The Office’, John Krasinski followed Jordan Peele’sGet Out‘ lead by taking the director’s role for the opposite end of the spectrum: Horror. His cleverly silent debut thriller ‘A Quiet Place’ has inexorable intensity, satisfying character development and bona fide heartbreak. Not since ‘Signs’ has there been such a fascinatingly atmospheric creature feature!

Film Review: ‘Gringo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2018

Gringo‘ follows a straight-laced business man named Harold (David Oyelowo) who works for a medical marijuana company run by Richard (Joel Edgerton) and Elaine (Charlize Theron), who are planning a secret merger they don’t want Harold to discover. In order for the merger to go through, they must clean up the books at their Mexican facility which has been selling a “weed pill” to a cartel leader to help the company financially. At home, Harold’s wife (Thandie Newton) is cheating on him, further pushing Harold to the edge. For some reason, Amanda Seyfried shows up as the girlfriend of some guitar store employee sent to Mexico so steal some drugs from the same facility Harold is there to see. Eventually Harold ends up stuck in Mexico through a series of kidnappings and ploys, forcing Richard to ask his brother (a former mercenary), played by Sharlto Copley, to rescue Harold from Mexico.

4K UHD Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 26th, 2018

THE FILM


Thor is starring in his third stand-alone film called ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ and brings a much needed change to the character in the best possibly way. Thor now has a fun personality and great comedic timing, mostly due to Chris Hemsworth amazing acting chops here. In addition to that, the film is steeped in a hypnotic, yet hyper-active color scheme that looks like Willy Wonka and Andy Warhol got together and decorated a city. In fact, Wonka’s theme ‘Pure Imagination’ is a song that plays in the film. It’s not all cold and stiff dialogue here anymore with brown or earth toned aliens and robots that Thor has to use his hammer to fight. Everyone and everything is covered in bright primary and pastel colors that creates a breath of fresh air in this stale universe. That’s all thanks to filmmaker Taika Waititi for giving his unique vision on this big budget film ($180 million). In previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, particularly with Thor, things have been sour and gloomy.

Dan Moran’s ‘Black Panther’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

Admittedly, the easiest narrative for Black Panther reviews is that it is a “game-changer”, “important”, “redefines hero”, etc. Those narratives and feelings aren’t wrong. I think Black Panther is one of Marvel’s best stand-alone hero films. It is right behind The Winter Soldier and the original Iron Man for me. In a few years it may even eclipse those two as the distance and impact it has going forward is felt. I believe the cultural and racial themes of this film are well thought out, focused, bold, and sobering. To be perfectly honest I don’t feel comfortable writing about that aspect of the film in depth. I’m a 32 year old goofy white guy who is not a good enough writer to navigate that territory, plus I lack the experiences that would make my take worth reading. There are some incredible writers who have written on the overall cultural impact of (essentially) an all-black cast superhero film and I encourage all of you to seek those pieces out because they are worth your time. My review is going to focus on just how badass this movie is.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Stronger’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 18th, 2017

THE FILM


The Boston Marathon Bombing was a horrific tragedy that only happened a few years ago, where a bomb went off at the finish line of the big marathon. People died and even more were injured. Amongst those injured was a young guy named Jeff Bauman, who lost both of his legs at that bombing. We’ve seen a number of films that have dealt with terroristic attacks that involve elite military teams or big action sequences. Other films might tackle a group of police officers or a group of people who have to deal with this attack. That’s not the case with this fantastic and melancholy film called ‘Stronger‘.

A Deeper look into the ‘The Holiday’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2017

In 2006 a little movie by the name of ‘The Holiday’ was released unto the world from the place where all darkness flows. It now signifies the start of “Holiday Movie Season” for countless women across the globe. I believe it is solely responsible for the Hallmark Channel’s holiday film slate every November-December. However, the imitators don’t even come close to the unique mess this film is. I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie in one full sitting the past 5 years but it has been in such a rotation in my home that I’ve caught it in enough chunks to have seen it at least 10-12 full times since it came out in 2006. I really want to break down the absurdity of this movie to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

Written By Bryan Kluger:

THE FILM

(This film review portion was written by Dan Moran.)

The fifth installment of Disney’s nearly $4 billion dollar franchise is a Pirates movie through and through. It is about 20 minutes too long, has a needlessly complex plot, fantastic action set pieces, and way too many characters. I found it to be a real roller coaster viewing experience, where some points I was loving every single second of what was on screen and others I wanted to check my phone to see how much longer was left. There were no scenes in this entire movie that I was just ‘Ok’ with. I was either loving it or tolerating it. When it was all over I was pleased with the ending and, more importantly, that it ended.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The most popular and well-known man in the world was and maybe still is Michael Jackson. He had fans all over the world and inspired not only the common folk, but many great musicians over the past 30 years years. Michael Jackson won tons of awards for his music, produced and created some of the best songs ever made, delivered the best music videos, and started a big charity called Heal the World. His life was in the tabloids constantly with hideous scum people making up stories that forced him to be a recluse for most of his life. He was just a man who became a father to three kids and when he was pushing 50 years old, he was more or less forced to perform 50 concerts as a way to make ends meet and provide for his family. Much has been said over the many years about Michael Jackson.

4K UHD Review: ‘Kick-Ass’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2017

THE FILM


Back in 2008, Mark Millar and John Romita Jr. created a new comic book that was kick-ass, that they in fact named it ‘Kick-Ass‘. It was basically Spider-Man if Spider-Man had no superpowers and was had a hardcore R rating. The amount of creative energy, violence, comedy, and character development that went into the comic was magical as it was entertaining and wonderful. Millar just had a way with words and story plot that made this comic book called ‘Kick-Ass‘ solid gold. It was to nobody’s surprise that only two years later, we got a feature film directed by Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, X-Men: First Class, Kingsman) and produced by Brad Pitt, that ignited a new breed of R rated superhero films.

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 11.10.34 AM

For decades now, we have been clamoring for a ‘Wolverine‘ film done right. From his first incarnation in Hulk #181 to his own miniseries in comic book form in the 1980’s by Frank Miller, to the amazing Saturday Morning Cartoon, and his first appearance in a feature film in 2000 with ‘X-Men‘, which had the song and dance man Hugh Jackman play the iconic character. He was so good at playing Logan/Wolverine, that fans immediately took a liking to him as that character and he went on to play the ‘Snikt-y Snikt’ character in almost a dozen more films. Besides the ‘X-Men‘ films, Wolverine got his own set of standalone films, which may or may not have been liked by a lot of people for various reasons. Either the story was too silly or the character Wolverine was to PG for fans.

Film Review: ‘The Founder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 20th, 2017

Beka P., here….

the-founder-movie-2016-trailer-michael-keaton

As a lawyer, one of the first things they teach you is to always put things in writing. As a criminal lawyer, one of the first things I tell people is never put things in writing. ‘The Founder‘ is a lesson in contracts and how as Roy Kroc says, “Contracts are like hearts, they were made to be broken.” This film explores the story of how McDonalds became more than just a local burger joint- exploding onto the map as a nationwide franchise. Quite honestly, it was darker than I expected, and cast a bit of a cloud on the French fried potato goodness that is Micky D’s, but I suppose that when you pull back the curtain and expose the inner workings of any organization, you are bound to find a few skeletons in the closet.

Favorite WWE Matches of 2016!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-4-38-29-pm

Yes, there were a list of movies that tickled my fancy and made me laugh, cry, and be scared so badly that I had to sleep with the lights on. That list is HERE for your enjoyment. Moving on from that, if you have ever met me or have perused this site, you would know that I like a bit of the ole Pro-Wrestling just a smidgen. So it wouldn’t ben an end-of-year celebrations without trying to show you or convince you that Pro-Wrestling is the BEST thing in the universe. After all, ‘Wrestling is Everything is Everything’.

This is one of the most fun and highest forms of entertainment on the planet and a lot of the time when I’m at screenings, I wish I were watching some good ole fashioned wrestling matches. I don’t know why, but it must be in my blood. The below matches are for sure my favorite from the WWE company strictly. If I were to do an all encompassing pro-wrestling list, I would be writing this for the next two weeks and “ain’t nobody got time for that.” So I’ll leave the ‘Wrestle Circus‘, ‘VIP Wrestling‘, ‘NJPW‘, ‘ROH‘, ‘PWG‘, and ‘Evolve‘ for another post, although I think Jervis Cottonbelly and Joey Ryan (The King of Dong Style) deserve some recognition as perhaps some of the best talent in the wrestling business. Seriously, look them up.

Also, at the very bottom of this list, I will place a non-WWE match, which is one of the best matches I’ve ever seen in Pro-Wrestling, and it deserves it’s own place and category, because it’s that hardcore, fun, and insane. I highly suggest you give these matches that are listed below a real chance. You’ll see the storyline that is being told in the squared circle, the amount of high voltage entertainment and athleticism that goes on each and every night here. You will certainly enjoy it.

4K UHD Review: ‘Pacific Rim’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 25th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

71ulqqm0dl-_sl1127_

THE FILM

Robots, monsters, and Ron Perlman. Oh my. Director Guillermo Del Toro has given us a movie that we’ve all wanted to see since we were five years old. In an action-packed and brilliant special effects film, we have giant 30-story robots fighting vicious mega monsters on Earth. Guillermo was the perfect person for this project as he is a fan of genre films and can tell a great story with flawless structure and good acting, while mixing in loud and vibrating action sequences. ‘Pacific Rim‘ movies fast and will keep you on your toes till the very end.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Great Gatsby’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 25th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

71agcknlail-_sl1127_

THE FILM

Director Baz Luhrmann has created a grand opus filled with shiny costumes, modern music, magical camera tricks, and classic style of early Hollywood film-making to bring to life once again F. Scott Fitzgerald’s beloved and iconic novel ‘The Great Gatsby‘. The film is over-the-top, lavish, and a bit flawed. But that is how the title character is after all. The feel and tone of the film is entrancing, as the visuals take is to the early 20s in New York, where we become infatuated with Gatsby and his American dream.

Epic List Of The Top 10 Road Trip Flicks!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jul 3rd, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

tumblr_nx5wmzgYvb1qewpgqo1_500

Summer means a lot to me, there’s baseball, which I waxed pretty poetic about in last week’s Top 10 Baseball Movies post. There’s fishing, the fourth of July, a multi-colored tongue from Otter Pops, and the all important road trip. Your trip can be a short jaunt to the lake or it can be a days long event that usually culminates in an epic destination – Wally World, anyone? Whether you trip on your own, with your friends or with your family, there’s something wonderful about having a full tank of gas, a stereo full of tunes and the open road in front of you. Depending on who you’re with it can either feel like a hostage situation or a relaxing break from the weekly drag. Most good road trips feel like a bit of both, not to mention the longing for the comfort that is your home toilet.

I’m gonna count down my top 10 movies that feature a road trip. Strap in, kick on the A/C and let the lull of the road below you relaxes your worries. This was not an easy list to winnow down to only 10 with a few honorable mentions. I left off the obvious ‘Thelma and Louise‘, they’re best friends, they kill someone and drive off a cliff. Yeah, I didn’t give you a spoiler alert there because if you haven’t seen this movie by now, you were never going to. Some road trip movies are better than others and we had differing opinions from each other making this list. So read along and tell me where we agree or disagree or what I’ve left out.

WWE Payback 2016: What to Expect!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

payback-2016-poster-2

It’s that time of year again for the PPV after Wrestlemania, which is known as Payback. Normally, this is a rather lackluster PPV when compared to the rest of the WWE events throughout the year, and this particular one seems no different, despite a couple of matches. I do expect some good moments, but I don’t expect a ton of titles to change hands here, if any really. Not only that, but we still have a ton of WWE Superstars out, including John Cena, Seth Rollins, Neville, and Randy Orton. You can add to that list Undertaker, Brock Lesnar, and Triple H not showing up, as well as The New Day not having a match either, however the latter will most likely do some promos. In other words, this just doesn’t seem like an exciting PPV at the moment. I hope I’m wrong. Maybe, just maybe Shinsuke Nakamura will show up and wrestle for two hours. Then again, maybe they’ll bring back ‘Firefly‘. Side note: why is Bray Wyatt and the Wyatt family on the poster for Payback, but they don’t have a match?

Life and death, witches and demons, the antichrist, angels and secrets surrounding the end of the world. They all have one thing in common, you’ll find all of them in the pages of ‘Good Omens‘ by Neil Gaiman and the late Terry Pratchett. This isn’t a book review, because I’d need way more space and time than you’d be willing to give me, but this IS a flaming awesome announcement about said novel. It’s coming to TV!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

shane-jump

As I’m recovering from seven insane days of ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX., I’ve had time to reflect, contemplate, saturate, and regurgitate every I event I attended. I had my box of Booty O’s to make sure I wasn’t Booty thru the weekend, met some good people, watched some amazing matches, talked with some WWE Superstars, and lost my voice when Shane-O-Mac put his life on the line for the WWE Business. To quote a certain former WWE announcer, it was a slobberknocker of a week for sure that hit me in the solar plexus more times than I’d like to admit. WWE really did it up big this year for Wrestlemania 32. Not only did they put on several good shows, but they also broke records. There was over 101,000 people in attendance at AT&T Stadium for Wrestlemania 32, beating the previous record from Wrestlemania 3 by quite a bit. Not only that, ticket sales and merch sales were way up as well from previous years. It seems like WWE is growing exponentially with more and more fans tuning in every week. That’s a good thing. Instead of writing a recap of the entire weekend, I’ll give you some details of some of the cooler things I witnessed over the past week.

Film Review: ‘Miracles from Heaven’!!

by Janet White on Mar 16th, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Miracles from Heaven - Family

Miracles from Heaven opens in a beautiful richly colored forest and Christie Beam defining a miracle, an occurrence that “cannot be explained by natural or scientific laws.” Cut to a nice size farm and the interior of a rolling tire as a little girl is giggling and could there be a sweeter beginning. The Beam family has three girls: Abigail (Brighton Sharbino), Annabelle (Kylie Rogers), and Adelynn (Courtney Fansler) and two loving parents Christy (Jennifer Garner) and Kevin (Martin Henderson). Tragedy mysteriously strikes the middle child and thus begins the trial of this family’s strength, love, and faith.  Read the rest of this entry »

Ever have one of those moments where you know the world as you know it has changed forever? WWE‘s Monday Night RAW from Detroit, MI had just that moment! With Wrestlemania (which can be seen on the WWE Network) looming, the WWE Universe was faced with one of those moments.

Film Review: ‘The Revenant’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the-revenant-fn01

Could this finally be the year for Leonardo DiCaprio to take home that Oscar gold? It very well could be for his performance in ‘The Revenant‘. This is a movie that went through a few directors and actors before it landed on the ‘Birdman‘ director Alejandro G. Inarritu and Leo. At one point the studio wanted Park Chan-wook (‘Oldboy‘) to direct Samuel L. Jackson in the film, but that all fell through. Then the film went to John Hillcoat to direct Christian Bale in the film, before landing on Inarritu and DiCaprio.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Film Review: ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

share_1200x627

I can’t believe it’s finally here. Ten years since the last ‘Star Wars‘ movie, which was ‘Episode III‘ by George Lucas. In the decade that followed, we all thought we would never see another ‘Star Wars‘ feature film again, since Lucas himself destroyed and ruined the prequel trilogy and continued to alter the original trilogy to dried up mess of movies that are almost unrecognizable. Fortunately for every ‘Star Wars‘ fan in the world, he sold his production company that included the rights to ‘Star Wars‘ to Disney for a modest amount of $4 billion.

Hey guys, Jana here,

lost-in-space

For years, we’ve heard rumblings in the deepest pockets of space that the 1960’s sci-fi series ‘Lost in Space‘ was getting a remake. They even released a movie in 1998, 30 years after the series was relevant to most viewers. The response wasn’t enough to demand a sequel, but the concept of the show never went away. It was announced a few years ago that writers Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless have been writing a script that will rejuvenate the series if it could only find a home.

Film Review: ‘Burnt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen Shot 2015-10-27 at 2.01.41 PM

Perhaps enough time has passed since Jon Favreau’s hit film ‘Chef‘ graced theaters for a new movie that has a lot of similarities to stand on its own. Then again, maybe it doesn’t. Originally, ‘Burnt‘ was actually titled ‘Chef‘, but of course had to change titles, but the story still remained in tact from director John Wells and writer Steven Knight (‘Locke‘). Billed as a comedy film with a chef played by Bradley Cooper, ‘Burnt‘ is like the steely ice cold, unfunny, heartwarming version of ‘Chef‘, which if you look at the bigger picture here, what’s really the point?

Janet W., Here…

the-walk-joseph-gordon-levitt

Fade to white and what appears to be Joseph Gordon-Levitt with blue eyes?  You guessed it that cute little boy from 3rd Rock from the Sun and 10 Things I Hate About You.  Recall in 10 Things I Hate About You when Gordon-Levitt’s character, Cameron, was pretending to teach French to his lady love, Bianca.  I guess Joe moved past that mumbling mess he tried to pass off as French.  Blue eyes are not the only addition, the French accent is thick and very Maurice Chevalier.  Don’t get me wrong.  I love the French language and accent.  I admit though that the appearance of Joe with these cosmetic changes at first was a little jarring.  Obviously, he is no longer the little boy I used to watch.  He slipped into the guise of Philippe Petit seemingly effortless to bring us The Walk

Film Review: ‘Black Mass’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Screen Shot 2015-09-16 at 8.01.58 PM

It’s okay to look at ‘Black Mass‘ as a distant sequel to the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ movies. Both have bad guys, wars, guns, monsters, and Johnny Depp. Maybe I’m reaching a bit there, but it’s still fun to think about them as distant cousins in movies. The story of James ‘Whitey’ Bulger has been told a lot, especially recently. If you’re unfamiliar with who Bulger is, he was one of the most vicious and heinous human beings to ever walk the planet. He was even the FBI’s Most Wanted man for more than a decade, as he spent most of his time in Boston as a mafia boss who committed murder amongst other things.

Janet W., Here…

Screen Shot 2015-08-26 at 11.54.58 AM

No Escape opens in black with opening credits and the sound of insects chirping.  Suddenly we focus on two glasses of clear beverage.  The camera follows the waiter carrying the glasses through the hotel/mansion until they arrive at the security/food taster.  Upon receiving his approval the waiter continues to the Prime Minister of Thailand and his visitor.  You wonder if something is in the glasses and if the Prime Minister will meet his end.  They both drink and finish their meeting.  As the visitor is escorted out by security, suddenly alarms sound.  The security officer takes off for the Prime Minister.  He is found bloody and dead.  Rebels walk up to the security officer and he draws his blade.  To defend himself?  No, he slices his own throat.  Oh, right, this is a Weinstein film.  Cut to titles that transition into clouds and an airplane window.

Film Review: ‘Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet’!!

Paul N., Here…

kahlil-gibran-the-prophet

Cartoons are often split into two categories: those for children, and those for adults. On the one hand, you have Disney classics, and on the other you have most anime. The two types have very distinct target demographics, and filmmakers gear their films to appeal to these specifics. On very rare occasion, you’ll get a film like Disney’s Fantasia that combines the two so beautifully that it appeals to both demographics. Kahlil Gibran’s The Prophet, attempts this same feat with admirable gusto, falling just short of success.

The project goes to Brian Cogman for the script, Cogman is a writer-producer for HBO’sGame of Thrones‘.

Film Review: ‘Amy’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Amy Winehouse might have been one of the best all time jazz singers in the world. In fact, I believe she still can hold that title, even almost five years after her death. Her voice was something unlike anyone ever heard and could be in the same league as Etta James, Billie Holiday, and Edith Piaf. In addition to her voice, she was charming, witty, and a ton of fun to be around. You just couldn’t get enough of her likable personality. Unfortunately in 2011, Amy died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27, making her one of the latest members of the ’27 club’, which Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and Brian Jones all belong to.

Janet W., Here…

Run All Night Movie (2)

Darkness gives way to a misty lake.  From above we close in on an injured man sprawled out on the ground.  Jimmy is floating in and out of consciousness…a voiceover speaks on what goes through the mind of the near dead and suddenly he hears a gunshot, a curious opening and introduction of Jimmy Conlon (Liam Neeson).  Jimmy is a former mob hit man that has become an island to himself through his long history of foul play.  Estranged from Jimmy is his only child, Mike Conlon (Joel Kinnaman).  Mike is a husband, father, and big brother/boxing coach, respectable personas that Jimmy forsook long ago.  Finding himself caught in the web of a murderous cokehead, Danny Maguire (Boyd Holbrook), and his mob boss father, Shawn Maguire (Ed Harris), Mike turns to the last person he ever wanted to rely on, Jimmy.  Run All Night takes the viewer on a crossing of evading death and the bonding of two hearts.

Fifty Shades of Grey is fifty shades of annoying.  Opening with a clear comparison of Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) and Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) in the manner that they start their day.  Grey is precise and disciplined while Steele is clumsy and frumpy.  Because of her sick college roommate, Kate (Eloise Mumford), Steele is tasked with interviewing Grey.  Grey will be the commencement speaker for their college graduation ceremony.  Ms. Nervous Knots is clearly out of her league and this intrigues Grey.  This film is nearly a point-by-point attempt at a re-vamping Wild Orchid (1989) with a more screwed up and twisted James Wheeler (Mickey Rourke) and more dingy and childish Emily Reed (Carré Otis).  Don’t get excited, because it is not Wild Orchid. Touch is a major deal-breaker/game-changer in both films.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 12th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

kingsman-the-secret-service-taron-egerton-colin-firth

I can officially say that the first AWESOME, kick-ass movie of 2015 is finally here, which is ‘Kingsman: The Secret Service‘. Based on Mark Millar’s (Kick-Ass) comic book, director Matthew Vaughn (Kick-Ass, Layer Cake, Snatch) has once again delivered the goods and high entertainment value with an homage to spy films, particularly the ‘James Bond‘ franchise. So what’s that mean? It means the guy who made ‘Kick-Ass‘ and produced ‘Snatch‘, made his own version of ‘James Bond‘, and it’s as violent and gory and funny as his other films I mentioned.

Found footage films have become a genre of their own.  In recent memory, they have been a favorite conduit for sci fi and horror films.  We are again treated to a found footage film about a group of high school students who, in this case, discover time travel.  The viewer is watches as they “Chronicle” their journey.

Film Review: ‘The Gambler’!!

Janet W., Here…

There are three kinds of people in the world:  the overachiever, the underachiever, and the one that does just enough to not fail or threaten the other two.  Associate Professor of Literature James “Jim” Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is on the precipice of changing his type.  Born of privilege, Jim is used to his mother (Jessica Lange) and her money saving the day.  He would gamble far above his earnings but the debt would be paid.  Something changes though.

Into the Woods had a great deal of expectations to live up to. A beloved musical featuring a well-known cast and director, this fairytale musical could easily have been a disappointment. However, with some musical high notes and great performances, the movie was a fun watch, in spite some editing and storyline issues.

Once a year, the WWE dedicates one of its shows to the United States Armed Forces. It is a chance for the Superstars to show their gratitude and respect to the men and women who put their lives on the line and make the sacrifices that allow us to enjoy the freedoms that we do. It was a night filled with laughs, excitement, surprise returns and great music provided by Florida Georgia Line.  The evening belonged to the men and women in the US Military. So let’s dive on into the night that World Wrestling Entertainment says THANK YOU to the exceptional men and women who are our heroes!

In a rare treat, and in the spirit of WWE Week on the USA network, the WWE Universe got to unwrap the gift of a Super Smackdown! What made it super? Why it was brought to us LIVE from Grand Rapids, Michigan. Also, it may have been the 800th episode but who’s counting?

How would the guys and gals who we tune into watch fare on this special addition? Let’s find out!

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

WWE: NXT Takeover Revolution Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2014

Angi S., Here…

NXT_REV_Photo_19-1489422147

It was a huge night for WWE’s developmental brand NXT. NXT Takeover: R Evolution, shown exclusively on the WWE Network (just $9.99 a month if the rumors are true) from Full Sail University in Orlando, FL, was everything a wrestling show should have and could have been. Four times a year,  the NXT Superstars are given the opportunity to showcase their talents live, and last night, they gave everything they had to entertain the fans. The pre show started with sad news as NXT Superstar, Corey Graves, announced his retirement from in ring competition. His reasons being medically based. Did that mean we would no longer see him, hell no, he also announced that he would be debuting that night as an NXT commentator! The energy of the evening was electric as the crowd took their seats and anxiously waited for the future to be showcased.

Film Review: ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

interstellar-11

It’s obvious with ‘Interstellar‘ that Stanley Kubrick’s2001: A Space Odyssey‘ is Christopher Nolan’s favorite film, which is no secret if you’ve seen interviews with the ‘Dark Knight‘ director. Armed with a core plot that all life on Earth will one day soon need to find a new planet to live on to survive, ‘Interstellar‘ dares to define a new meaning to the term science-fiction. This visually stunning movie is a gift to watch on the big screen, particularly in IMAX, and tries so hard to deliver on both the science fiction aspects of space as well as our complex human emotions. With a film that has so much going for it in it’s near three-hour run time, and so many big set pieces and theories, there are things that are bound to stick the landing, and other things that are destined to fall flat.

Every actor with any success has that one certain film that locks their position in the industry as a solid player and worthy of being called up to the show. Deciding which picture is the defining moment in their careers is always up for discussion. Tonight I’m talking about Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter. These two names have been paired since 1989 when they posed as Bill & Ted on an Excellent Adventure. In recent interviews, Winter gave out some details about the highly anticipated third film in the bodacious franchise! Before, we get to those, let’s talk about their careers.
