Late Night – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 13th, 2019

“Late Night is a funny film with some great messages and solid performances.”

Late Night, written and co-produced by Mindy Kaling, who also happens to star in the film, hits on a lot of levels and in mostly all the right ways. Kaling plays Molly, a naïve diversity hire on the Katherine Newberry show, the only late night show starring a woman. Newberry, played by Emma Thompson has ruled the late night airwaves for decades but alas, she’s aging, and no one likes an aging woman. In a time when her ratings are dropping and the female head of the network wants to replace her with what feels like a swinging dick, she has her right hand man find literally any woman to add to the writing staff. In walks Molly who isn’t at all what the showrunners want, but she has all the right parts.

Film Review #2: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (2017)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 14th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (1991) is in the top 2 Disney animated movies of all-time. I’ll only allow The Lion King, which has a live action version due in 2019 or 2020, to be ranked ahead of it. This isn’t a debate. These are facts. Beauty and the Beast (animated) is a masterpiece from songs to characters, which is why I loved that this new live-action movie stayed so true to the animated version. It was an extremely enjoyable two hours with some really great moments and I look forward to seeing it again.

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?

Bradley Cooper stars as Chef Adam Jones, the chef with two-star Michelin rockstar with all the bad habits that accompany the title. He burned bridges and forged new paths by doing everything his own way, his only goal creating a new and thrilling taste explosion. Just like every bad boy turns good story, he’s trying to turn things around in his drive for a third star and he travels home to London to recruit the best of the best professionals ever in order to achieve it.

"Belle" Portraits - 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

Disney’s live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ is chugging along, steadily filling out the cast with new announcements seemingly coming every day. We all know the story, a young Belle agrees to stay in a castle with a monstrous beast to ensure her father’s freedom, but things aren’t always what they appear to be on the surface.

Hey guys, Jana here, f9ae8-ian-mckellen-cigarette

Disney is right in the middle of their latest trend in film. Taking their own smash animated stories and flipping them around, re-working them into live-action films providing double the bank off a single story. If you’re talking box office success, they’re mega-hits, if you’re looking at critically, they’ve missed the end zone more than they’ve scored. Next up for the family studio is ‘Beauty and the Beast‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

beauty

We’ve all heard the story, a tale as old as time…Our heroine Belle, sacrifices her freedom to trade places with her father living in an enchanted castle with a horridly monstrous beast that embodies the stuff nightmares are made of. She holds the key to his ultimate salvation and the others living in the castle nudge the pair together in hopes the end of their enchantment will be realized. I grew up on the Disney animated feature and it’s remained one of my top 3 toon-movies even now.

Hey guys, Jana here,

bradley-cooper1

The entertainment world goes through fads, just like fashion. One day we’re inundated with talking sea animals from every animated company, the next day it’s all about bugs. Right now, culinary genius is taking center stage.

The Weinstein Company began production today on ‘Adam Jones‘. This pic puts Bradley Cooper (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘) and Sienna Miller (‘GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘) together and adds a little spice making Cooper a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to change his ways. The project was originally called ‘The Chef‘ until  ‘Chef‘, Jon Favreau’s tale of a chef who loses his restaurant and hits to the road in a food truck piecing his life, and his family, back together along the way. Obviously this can’t work in the film industry an agreement was made and a change of title followed.

Film Review: ‘Saving Mr. Banks’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2013

Fernando M., Here…

tom-hanks-is-walt-disney-in-the-first-trailer-for-saving-mr-banks

Quite literally, a Disney movie about the making of a Disney movie.  One would think this would be little more than ego stroking ego, but actually, “Saving Mr. Banks” is a sweet film telling the tale of the production of a classic; the story of how Walt Disney bought the rights to Mary Poppins, and the story behind the iconic flying nanny.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here are the nominees for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Wow, there were a lot of snubs here. And how did ‘Rush‘ make the list for Best Picture? No way! And what about ‘The Way Way Back‘, ‘Mud‘, or ‘Short Term 12‘ not being nominated? For shame. Let me know what you think of this nominee list?

You're the threat now. Just like I was.
Robert Clayton Dean:
Threat to whom? To them?
Brill:
No. To your family, your friends, everybody you know, everybody you meet. That's why I went away and didn't come back. You've got to go away, Robert.
Robert Clayton Dean:
No, I don't think so. This is my life, I worked hard for it and I want it back. I grew up without a father, I know what that is. And I will not allow my family to go through that.
