Sylvester Stallone to play ‘The Godfather’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 28th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

la-et-mn-oscars-2016-sylvester-stallone-returns-to-oscar-ring-after-39-years-20160114

Is it true? Is Sylvester Stallone coming to television? Yes he is, and he will play the lead role of Raymonde Aprile, the last great American mob boss. I can’t wait to see Stallone play a sadistic bad guy. Not only that, ‘Training Day‘ and upcoming ‘The Magnificent Seven‘ director Antoine Fuqua will direct the series. The show is based off of ‘Omerta‘, which was the final novel from Mario Puzo, who famously wrote ‘The Godfather‘.

‘The Magnificent Seven’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 20th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

tumblr_inline_o5w945QLTs1td0hds_1280

Last night we showed you images from the film, and today we have an awesome trailer for the remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. The original came out in 1960, which was a remake of Akira Kurosawa’s ‘Seven Samurai‘. Both Kurosawa’s and John Sturges’ films are some of the better films out there in the world, so this remake has big shoes to fill. After watching the trailer, I can say it looks damn fun and what looks like to be a great take on these past classics. This is one of the films that is high on my radar, and it should be on yours too.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. I’ve a huge fan of westerns. I wish there was more out there. luckily Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Bros. are making westerns still. You can add to that list Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who is remaking the 1960 film that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen.

CBS is just like every other network right now getting their TV schedules figured out, ordering pilots of new shows that will be on a trial basis with hopes of becoming a permanent part of the fall TV schedule. One of the series that has been given a pilot order at CBS is ‘Training Day‘ and it’s just like it sounds, a series based on the Antoine Fuqua directed film of the same name.

Film Review: ‘Southpaw’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

_1427472125

When it comes to the world of boxing, there have been many films and documentaries that have been released on the violent sport. Some of the movies have done so well both financially and critically, that they have taken home more than one Oscar, and dare I say it, this new boxing film, ‘Southpaw‘ is the best boxing movie since Sylvester Stallone put on boxing gloves in 1976 and put on one hell of a show against Carl Weathers in ‘Rocky‘. Despite its minor flaws, ‘Southpaw‘ is an amazing film from top to bottom. Director Antoine Fuqua (‘Training Day‘) has perfectly transformed Jake Gyllenhaal into a scary, muscular, bloodied monster of a fighter, who you would never want to step into the ring with.

‘London Has Fallen’ Trailer Is Here!

Hey guys, Jana here,

The sequel to 2013’s ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘ is carrying over most of the original cast but not the director. Antoine Fuqua directed the first to success but stepped back from ‘London Has Fallen‘ because he didn’t like the script and Babak Najafi. The film doesn’t release until January of 2016 but Gramercy Pictures has given us a teaser trailer to keep us excited until then.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Jake Gyllenhaal’s Startling ‘Southpaw’ Makeover

This year’s Oscar race was a tough one to call as there were so many deserving and absolutely fantastic movies that made the ballot and hundreds more that didn’t, the films coming out now are offering up performances just as stunning. One of the best examples of great acting comes from Jake Gyllenhaal in ‘Southpaw‘.

In true Hollywood fashion, re-making an old classic is always a popular project and ‘Magnificent Seven‘ is no different. The new Seven is based on, of course, the 1960’s film of the same name that starred Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach and James Coburn. Of course, this classic is a remake of yet another film, from iconic director Akira Kurosawa’sSeven Samurai‘ from 1954.

Film Review: ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Denzel Washington

This remake of an 80s television show about a retired CIA operative who now helps regular people in trouble has been in the works for quite some time. I believe it was always going to star the impressive Denzel Washington, but a few directors have been in and out of the director’s chair including Nicolas Winding Refn (‘Drive‘). He bowed out a while ago and the studio asked Antoine Fuqua to helm the project, which he accepted. Fuqua worked with Washington on the Oscar winning film ‘Training Day‘, which also earned Washington an acting Oscar.

Fernando’s Review of ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Fernando M., Here….

denzel-washington-the-equalizer

Antoine Fuqua is two men.  He is the director of the critically acclaimed “Training Day,” for starters.  He is also evidently also the man that saw “Taken” a bunch of times.  When you put those experiences together, you get “The Equalizer.” Showcasing Denzel Washington again reprising his role as Denzel Washington, a strong , smooth, moral protagonist that is going to do a bunch of stuff with guns, but somehow still manages to have a part in the script where he gets to dance.  Denzel plays Denzel quite well, so it’s hard to fault him for that.  In this case in particular, he plays action Denzel better than ever!

Trailer for ‘The Equalizer’ Will Blow Your Minds!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 12th, 2014

Hi, Jana here,

'Safe House' Premiere - New York

I’m talking about ‘The Equalizer’ today. Denzel Washington, the acting genius from ‘Training Day‘, ‘American Gangster‘ and ‘The Book of Eli‘ is back in a role he’s been born to play. The trailer just dropped on ‘The Equalizer‘. It gave me goosebumps watching this small clip of what HAS got to be an excellent movie! It conjured up feelings of Michael Caine in ‘Harry Brown‘ or Gerard Butler in ‘Law Abiding Citizen‘. I’ve always been a huge fan of action movies, anyway, give me a revenge-based action movie and I’m enthralled!

Hi, Bryan Here…

In a fun marketing campaign for the upcoming thriller ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘, the studio is looking for “skilled professionals” to escort and check out the scene at the red carpet to make sure everything is ‘safe’ for the characters and actors.  They are billing it as they are looking for a task force of special agents to attend the world premiere of the film.  All you have to do is full out a bit of information, and hope that you are picked to attend.  You could possible meet Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, or Morgan Freeman.

Movie Quotes

Doyle Gipson:
I hope you don't mind, but I was intrigued by your conversation. I just thought you were in advertising. So I want to give you my dream version of a Tiger Woods commercial, okay? There's this black guy on a golf course. And all these people are trying to get him to caddy for them, but he's not a caddy. He's just a guy trying to play a round of golf. And these guys give him a five-dollar bill and tell him to go the clubhouse and get them cigarettes and beer. So, off he goes, home, to his wife and to their little son, who he teaches to play golf. You see all the other little boys playing hopscotch while little Tiger practices on the putting green. You see all the other kids eating ice cream while Tiger practices hitting long balls in the rain while his father shows him how. And we fade up, to Tiger, winning four Grand Slams in a row, and becoming the greatest golfer to ever pick up a 9-iron. And we end on his father in the crowd, on the sidelines, and Tiger giving him the trophies. All because of a father's determination that no fat white man - like your fathers, probably - would ever send his son to the clubhouse for cigarettes and beer.
