Film Review: ‘Foxcatcher’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Foxcatcher

Director Bennett Miller has chosen his four films wisely. Starting with ‘The Cruise‘ back in 1998, Miller has only three more films on his resume, including ‘Foxcatcher‘. The previous two were ‘Capote‘ was an Oscar winner as well as ‘Moneyball‘. Miller has an uncanny knack for telling compelling stories that are based on real life events and engaging the audience to not only be entertained, but to think and discuss these characters and sometimes real people’s motives in what they did in their particular story. You can add to that, Miller’s success in getting his actors to win Oscars almost across the board, and this very dark and creepy film ‘Foxcatcher‘ is no different.

‘Last Flag Flying’ waves over Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 14th, 2017

Last Flag Flying‘ is coming to Blu-ray on January 30th and will be available digitally on January 16th. The film is directed by Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, Everybody Wants Some, Boyhood) and stars Steve Carell, Bryan Cranston, and Laurence Fishburne, and is based on Darryl Ponicsan’s book of the same name. The movie focuses on three older men who all served in Vietnam together. Fast forward many years later, they are all reunited when one of their son’s has died in the Iraq war and they road trip to bury the fallen. It’s a different kind of movie for sure in Linklater’s list of movies, but he proves that he can tackle any subject, even if it isn’t as silly or fun as the above mentioned films of his. There will be audio commentaries, behind the scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, and more included on this Blu-ray. Below is more information on the release.

Film Review: ‘Battle of the Sexes’!!

by Janet White on Sep 22nd, 2017

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The year was 1972; Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) had just won the US Open. Thrust into the mainstream limelight, emerged into the Women’s Lib movement, and treated as the lesser sex by the world, King breaks free from the bonds of the United States National Lawn Tennis Association. The USNLTA paid the female players considerably less than the male players for illogical reasons like men are the big ticket sellers; men need the money for their families, etc. With her trusted friend and manager, Gladys Heldman (Sarah Silverman), along with her and other female tennis players the face of tennis was forever changed.

Janet White’s Best/Worst List of 2014!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 29th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

 

2014What an interesting year in film.  There were some really good films and REALLY bad ones.  Some are bad because of my disappointment in the execution of potential brilliance.  Others are good because they brought an amazing story in a skillful manner that is worthy of memory.  I can only speak to the films that I was either blessed or, in some cases, cursed to screen, 23 in all (plus one cool dance performance).  Feedback is encouraged whether you agree, disagree, think I’m nuts (I am a little crazy), or if you think a film I reviewed should have been included.  Here are my Top 10 Best Films and Top 5 Worst Films of 2014….

Hi, Bryan Here….

Terminator-terminator-9683150-1024-576

Well, the deal has finally been made. Skynet will go live in 2015 and send Terminators to kill us all.  I kid. I kid. But, Paramount has finally greenlit a trilogy of new rebooted ‘Terminator‘ films, with the first movie releasing June 26th, 2015. That’s two summers away. Megan Ellison, who is the daughter of a multi billionaire, got into the film producing business three years ago and has a pretty successful track record already. She purchased the rights to ‘Terminator‘ in 2011 for over $20 million and now has a three picture deal.

Steve Carell and Channing Tatum Might Strike Gold!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Bennett Miller is known for getting the best performances out of his actors, and thus for earning them Oscars. Philip Seymour Hoffman won Best Actor for Capote, and Brad Pitt is getting nods and buzz for Moneyball. Now, he’s possibly letting Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe) and Steve Carell (Evan Almighty) ride his coattails for a new film that’s already generating some Oscar talk.
