Mar/2019

Hi Bryan Here…

The geek deal of the day is AMAZING.  Gone with the Wind Utimate Collectors Edition Giftset Bluray is on sale for only $27.99.  That is almost 60% off the normal price.  Period romance. War epic. Family saga. Popular fiction adapted with crowd-pleasing brilliance. Star acting aglow with charisma and passion. Moviemaking craft at its height. These are sublimely joined in the words Gone with the Wind.
This dynamic and durable screen entertainment of the Civil War-era South comes home with the renewed splendor of a New 70th-Anniversary Digital Transfer capturing a higher-resolution image from Restored Picture Elements than ever before possible. David O. Selznick’s monumental production of Margaret Mitchell’s Pulitzer Prize-winning book can now enthrall new generations of home viewers with a majestic vibrance that befits one of Hollywood’s greatest achievements.

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2017

Tis the season to be thankful for many things. Family, friends, food, jobs, and Bruce Campbell. It’s Thanksgiving time and we here at Boomstick Comics just love movies. We love everything about them. Even the bad ones. While you’re eating those delicious bites of Turkey, watching ‘Charlie Brown Thanksgiving‘ or the Dallas Cowboys Game, we want to share with you some movies that we are thankful for. These movies have touched us in some way and have helped shaped our creative lives. Maybe this list will inspire you to make your own list and share it with us. These are the movies we are thankful for and dearly love.

Film Review: The Beguiled!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 29th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

beguiled-trailer-37738af4-c7dd-4053-b704-a03437a0cc1d

The Civil War is rooted deep in the fibers of U.S. history, and there’s an evident fascination in both literature and film with the American lifestyle now gone with the wind. Retellings of war classics never seem to go out of style, so it’s no surprise that over forty years after the release of its 1971 predecessor starring Clint Eastwood, ‘The Beguiled’ is being reintroduced to a new generation. Comparisons to the original inevitably lingered over her shoulder, but Director Sofia Coppola (The Virgin Suicides, Lost in Translation) gives the film a fresh, female perspective and garnishes it with her excellent use of lighting, smart casting and artistic framing.

‘Overboard’ Gets The Reboot!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 6th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

MV5BMjIzMjMxOTgzM15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMTAwODM2NA@@._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,666,1000_AL_

This might just be my least favorite topic, but it’s news, so here goes. Another remake is ramping up, this time it’s the 1987 Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell rom-com, ‘Overboard‘. It’s not exactly ‘Gone With The Wind‘, but it is a Garry Marshall movie and it was a staple of my childhood and I don’t want to see it Frankensteined!!

Hey everyone, Jana here,

 

 

ben-hur2

 

If you’re new to the site you may not know how I have railed against the habit film makers have of taking classic movies and re-tooling them into what they deem bigger and better. If you’re not new, sorry, had to point that out! Anyhow, I have certain rules that make a re-imagining somewhat acceptable. One of them is if the original has been out for more than 50 years, go for it. If there were only crappy and really horrid special effects in the original, I’m looking at you Bubo, then go for it, but you better knock that flick out of the park! I’m talking about mind-melting special effects and balls to the wall violence. There is something to be said for childhood favorites, no matter how awful that cutting edge technology was, now. This bit of news falls into both categories.

‘The Princess Bride’ Is Coming To The Stage!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

 the_princess_bride_movie_image__1_

There is a list of things that actually make me Squee like a fan girl. Yes, ‘Squee’. Look it up on Urban Dictionary. Watching The Princess Bride as a kid was one of my greatest memories of lazy summer afternoons, impromptu snowed in school days with hot chocolate and a blanket. Being sick and all I wanted was my mom’s sick soup and to watch The Princess Bride, or read it. Now my sick movies are not only The Princess Bride, buy Gone With The Wind, as well. I’m not even close to being alone with my love of the cult classic that forever made The Foundations song, Build Me Up Buttercup, only think of Robin Wright and how the angsty Westley must have felt at times.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Favorite Movies!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

arnoldschwarzenegger

Like most of us, I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger films, which I loved them all.  I would see every new Schwarzenegger film with my dad the day it came out.  It was like a tradition.  From the ‘Terminator‘ films to ‘Predator‘, ‘Twins‘, and all the way up to ‘The 6th Day‘. Enjoying for the most part, all of the films in their own unique way. Needless to say, Arnold has been in my life since I was little, if were on the television, the big screen, or in the form of action figures and comics, his characters have always been there.

4K UHD Review: ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2018

THE SERIES


HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ series is one of the better series to come out in the last 20 years.  Based on the books by George R.R. Martin, which are called ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’, this series adaptation is top notch in every aspect.  If you haven’t seen HBO’s ‘ Game of Thrones’ or read George R.R. Martin’s novels, then I highly suggest you do a few things.  First, purchase this 4K UHD set.  It will be one of the best purchases you will make this year so far.  Second, set your DVR’s to record the last season coming up in a few months.  And third, get the books, because they are truly a great read.  This is one of the best HBO series to have ever been aired and it will sorely be missed when it’s gone.

THE FILMS


Presented here in 4K UHD are the first 4 ‘Jurassic Park‘ films, including ‘Jurassic Park‘, ‘Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World‘, ‘Jurassic Park 3‘, and ‘Jurassic World‘, which came out only a couple of years ago. Back in 1993, Steven Spielberg gave us the world of dinosaurs in such a moving, emotional, and entertaining way, that his first film ‘Jurassic Park‘, became a milestone in filmmaking and paved the way for a ton of creative minds over the next few years. With a mix of practical effects and state-of-the-art CGI effects, Spielberg and his crew of filmmakers created dinosaurs all over again, which became a huge phenomenon.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Straight from it’s dynamic debut where it premiered January 21, 2018, at the Sundance Film Festival in the Midnight section, comes ‘Hereditary‘ to theaters nation wide June 8th, 2018. It’s a combination drama/mystery/horror film that will make anyone take a second look at their family. The writer director Ari Aster is the man behind this film, both from his pen and his artistic vision that brought the project to fruition. This is Aster’s first feature length film after helming and writing   a handful of short films. With positive reviews coming in, it seems his first attempt at a full length film was a success, at least that’s what the 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes would suggest. I’m sure that’s a relief for PalmStar Media (‘Collateral Beauty‘), Windy Hill Pictures, and A24 (‘Lady Bird‘, ‘The Florida Project‘, ‘The Disaster Artist‘) who were the production companies backing the flick.

4K UHD Review: Westworld Season 1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 11th, 2017

THE SERIES


HBO’s new flagship show ‘Westworld‘ entered with a big bang in its first season. Since ‘Game of Thrones‘ is ending soon, HBO was ahead of the game and needed its new sci-fi action original show and ‘Westworld‘ was its name. That rhymed a little bit. Based on Michael Crichton’s story and film from 1973 of the same name, ‘Westworld‘ takes a theme park (much like Disneyland) to the next level. What do I mean by that? Well, let’s say you entered the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ ride at Disneyland.

4K UHD Review: ‘Warrior’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2017

THE FILM


If you ever thought that the world of MMA could be a one-note violent sport, you do not know what you’re talking about and you’ve obviously never seen this highly emotional and excellent film called ‘Warrior‘. It’s been a long time since we’ve all connected to such characters such as these, and it has certainly been a long time since we’ve seen Nick Nolte in a role such as this one, which he received an Oscar nomination for. ‘Warrior‘ is certainly a violent film, but it’s also one about redemption, family, and forgiveness.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #3!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Annie Hall + Diane Keaton + khakis

I love Woody Allen movies and I imagine there will be quite a number of scenes in this column from his films. The first one comes from Annie Hall though. This scene just speaks to me so much and I think it’s a perfect capture of two people who were once in love, but still want to be in each other’s lives, even if it can be a bit awkward. Finding something to talk about to pass the uncomfortable time, or seeing new things in your former significant other’s place that make you question what new things they’re into now that you’re gone is delightfully funny to watch.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

maxresdefault

Here’s a new addition to the Boomstick Comics lineup – Favorite Movie Scene of the Day! If you’ve seen any of my interviews with filmmakers or actors, one questions I never forget to ask is What is your favorite scene in a movie that has always stuck with you? Everyone gives different answers and they are always caught off guard and have some fun answering this particular question. Just look how much fun Keanu Reeves had answering the question. It’s different than answering “What is your favorite movie?”, because it allows you to think to a specific moment in a film that really connected with you that you never seem to forget, quote, cry over, or laugh at. So I hope to bring some excellent scenes from movies that you’ve forgotten or haven’t seen in a long while in hopes of rekindling a relationship of passion with your favorite movies and characters. This is #1

Blu-ray Review: ‘Moana’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Moana‘ is the latest animated film from Disney, releasing a few months after their big hit ‘Zootopia’. No matter what film Disney releases, the usual messages and tone are consistent in every film. However, Disney magically manages to make each film feel very fresh, unique, and original with excellent characters, animation, and story lines that not only captivate me with each film, but to the masses as well. ‘Moana’ is no different here, as it looks visually stunning, as well as have an top notch story with excellent voice talent and songs.

Film Review: ‘The Great Wall’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2017

Fernando M., here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 8.48.27 AM

This is a bad year for walls. ‘The Great Wall‘ easily wins the “biggest misnomer of the year” award. Should have gone with the title “This Wall, It’s OK I Guess.” What the hell went wrong with this picture?  The setup is great, which is “We use the Great Wall of China as a backdrop for a fantasy film about monsters.”  There’s a parable about monsters and greed and containment and human evil, but really, it’s all about monsters attacking the Great Wall of China.  On this premise alone, it sounds like a lot of fun, and it really could have been.

THE FILM

Ben Affleck’sArgo’ is a brilliantly told film.  Affleck has come a long way since ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Mallrats‘.  In my opinion, Affleck has gotten better with each directorial effort with ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘The Town’, and now ‘Argo’, which I think is his best yet.  Not only is ‘Argo’ a great film, it has a smart script, good acting, clever humor in a serious and tragic situation, and impeccable period detail that rivals AMC’s ‘Mad Men’.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

Another Pixar sequel is here, and this time it takes place under water with ‘Finding Dory‘, the sequel to the 2003 hit ‘Finding Nemo‘. Wow, has it really been thirteen years since Pixar made $940 million off that cute orange fish? Well, Pixar is in the sequel making business these days, and with ‘Finding Dory‘, they seem to have made an enjoyable and entertaining sequel that has some funny moments, but misses the mark on the heart and soul of the first film – not to mention the lack of creative story telling devices that the first movie had throughout. I’m sure this sequel will make a huge splash with all audiences, but the kids are more likely to eat this up than the adults.

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

This film review portion was written by Beka Perlstein of Boomstick Comics.

Life is all about the long game. ‘Now You See Me 2‘ pulls you in from the very beginning and quickly wraps you up in a fun game of cat and mouse with none other than The Four Horsemen. This quirky group of magicians is back from the first flick with one major improvement- Lizzy Caplan has replaced Isla Fisher as the token chick, playing Lula May. She’s funny, spunky and the perfect addition to the otherwise all male ensemble.

If you love Tina Fey, you will love Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, but if you thought you were in for Sisters takes Afghanistan you are going to be sorely disappointed. Let me be clear, I really enjoyed this movie. I liked it on a lot of levels. However, one thing I really dislike is when movies are billed as one thing and then show up as something else. It’s kind of like online dating… no one likes it when someone unrecognizable shows up to dinner.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Tomorrowland’!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

There’s one hell of a cast and crew at work here for Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland‘, which is loosely based on the famous theme park at Disney resorts. Directed by Brad Bird (‘The Incredibles‘, ‘Ratatouille), produced by Damon Lindelof (‘Lost‘ and ‘Star Trek‘), and starring George ClooneyHugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, ‘Tomorrowland‘ is a throwback to those old innovative Disney films full of adventure. I felt like a kid again through its two hour run time as I was watching each suspenseful and fun moment on the IMAX screen. That being said, ‘Tomorrowland‘ does have a few problems, but fortunately the good outweighs the bad this time around.

Did you miss Battleground (shown on the WWE Network)? No worries, your Angelic Heel has you covered!

Blu-ray Review: ‘Goodfellas’ 25th Anniversary!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 5th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

goodfellas-25th-600x450

THE FILM

By the time 1990 came around, Martin Scorsese had already made several masterpieces in film, which continue to be praised and talked about to this day. With the likes of ‘Raging Bull‘, ‘Taxi Driver‘, and ‘The Last Waltz‘, we all knew that Scorsese was one of the finest filmmakers and storytellers around. Even with just those three previous films mentioned, you’d know you were in for a treat when Scorsese wanted to show you something. Then 1990 came around and Scorsese once again changed the film community with a movie called ‘Goodfellas‘, which was his big foray into the whole mafia genre.

Film Review: ‘Steak (R)evolution’!

Paul N., Here…

10408921_774893609274078_3623605404413987690_n

Back in 1989, the United States used music as a weapon against Noriega. For several days, the Americans surrounded their enemy and forced them to listen on a loudspeaker to the same songs over and over again. Watching Steak (R)evolution just once was enough to give me sympathy pains for the troops of Noriega. In fact, I imagine this film might just be added to the torture device database.

‘True Detective’ Fans Get Ready For Season 2!!!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Vince-Vaughn-Colin-Farrell-True-Detective-514711

HBO grabbed the collective viewers attention with ‘True Detective‘ in 2014. A series that won 5 Emmy Awards and was nominated for so many more accolades that it should have won. Matthew McConaughey, Woody Harrelson and Michelle Monaghan star in the freshman season of the anthology police detective show. The detectives reminesce on a case from 1995 that has been closed as solved. Questions surface that force those involved to dredge up memories from the past, in looking closer at the variables, corruption is evident on both sides of the thin blue line.

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.

Blu-ray Review: ‘101 Dalmatians’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

61LcbbHAp-L

THE FILM

If it weren’t for ‘101 Dalmatians‘, we might not have had any more Disney animated films, including ‘The Lion King‘ or even ‘Wreck it Ralph‘. Back in 1959, ‘Sleeping Beauty‘ failed to live up to expectations and didn’t make enough money for Disney to do another project. In fact, it got so bad at Disney, that people were being let go and the studio doors were on the verge of being shut for good. Can you imagine that? No more Disney animated films after 1959? I know I can’t.

Matthew Michael Carnahan has written a few movies that have gone on to enjoy commercial success, among them the Brad Pitt thriller ‘World War Z‘, along with three other scripts in various stages of production would make you think he has enough on his plate at the moment, but he’s got time for another project. Carnahan is adapting Christopher McDougall’s best-selling book ‘Born To Run: A Hidden Tribe, Super Athletes, And The Greatest Race The World Has Never Seen‘ for feature modification and already has a superstar attached to star, Matthew McConaughey.

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-sniper-6

 

In the world of film, there are specific genres that stand out for me and one of those is war movies. I love different titles for a variety of reasons, the story, or even an actor, in this category there is one primary theme that ties each film together – heroes. Their outstanding courage is what gives us that lump in our throats and a swell of patriotic pride that causes us to lift these characters, real or imagined, to elevated heights. It takes a special kind of person to be a hero, I know I couldn’t do it, but I am eternally grateful for the men and women that take up that mantle and defend the lives and freedoms I hold so dearly.

As we all knew would happen, ‘Star Trek 3‘ is on the horizon, even without the guidance of J.J. Abrams. Director Justin Lin (‘Fast and the Furious’) has taken the con after Roberto Orci left the project. Orci was a writer for ‘Star Trek Into Darkness‘ before he was tapped to direct the third installment. The director isn’t the only change in the project from the last film as the writing team that will be putting pen to paper is undergoing some staff re-vamps, too.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Season 5!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

91djH+eDidL._SL1500_

THE SERIES

It’s sad to see this amazing gangster show come to an end. It’s been a great five years, and this last season did a lot of things right in regards to wrapping up story lines and character arcs. I remember watching the first episode, which was directed by Martin Scorsese and thinking this is one of the better pilot episodes I’ve ever seen. I still think that to this day. There have been some great characters over the years, and it was sad to see how some of them ended up, but make no mistake, this fifth and final season hit its mark. HBO shortened this final season to only eight episodes and focused on wrapping up each character with an emphasis on Nucky Thompson’s (Steve Buscemi) childhood, upbringing, and how he became who he is.

Fox Tells Us When Some of Their Big Films Are Coming Out!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 5th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

Fox has announced some dates and even changed some dates for a few of their upcoming big budget films. It’s not too uncommon for studios to change dates and announce particular dates so far in advance, but with such big money makes, there has to be some sort of reason for the dates, considering over the next few years, Fox will have to compete with a hell of a lot of big movies from other studios.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Today, I’m watching ‘Mystery Road‘ on blu-ray, I love a good detective mystery and got really excited when I read the description. In an outback town, Jay Swan, an Indigenous cowboy detective, returns home to solve the murder of a teenage Indigenous girl whose body is found under the highway trucking route out of town. Jay is alienated from both the white-dominated police force and the Indigenous community, including his teenage daughter, whom he discovers is connected to the murdered girl.

I’m a bonafide Batfan from way back when Wonder Woman and Batgirl were on my knickers. This includes all things batty. Not like regular animal bats, because that would just be weird, or at the very least, awkward. If you call your pad the Batcave and you’re a Batman fan, all is well, if you call it the Batcave because it’s full of real bats, you might need to spend some time in Arkham Asylum. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe…er…well usually.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Ginger Snaps’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

61abmZkAgyL._SY300_

 

THE FILM

I admit, I’m a suck for werewolf films. Ever since I was shown 1941’s ‘Wolf-Man‘ when I was very little by my dad, I knew that I would be hooked on werewolves for life. Then I watched Michael Jackson’sThriller‘ video and ‘An American Werewolf in London‘ soon after that, while all under the age of eight. Needless to say, these werewolf films have had a profound effect on me, and might be the igniting reason why I love the horror genre so much. When I was in college, I came across a film called ‘Ginger Snaps‘, which was only released in Canada at the time, and being a big movie buff, I had to get my hands on any film that wasn’t being released in the U.S. yet.

Season 4 of the “The Walking Dead” takes place in the 7-8 months in the future. You see a community has begun within the prison. Rick has now taken in more people than just the ones from Woodbury. There is now a high council in place with Rick, Daryl, Carol, Sasha and Hershel on it. You can see how everybody has fallen into new roles within the prison community and grown as almost celebrities in the zombie apocalypse. There is a calm with the chaos of the world that they live in.

Good Morning ‘Walking Dead‘ fanatics!!!! I know you were on the edge of your seat like I was last night so lets get to it.  The show starts out with a flashback scene between Michonne and Andrea the previous winter. The camera starts with the chain that is holding Michonne’s armless and toothless walkers. They are in the woods and around a camp fire, warming up food. Andrea is warming up the food while Michonne is checking out the perimeter.  They are chit chatting around the fire and Andrea brings up the fact that Michonne never told her where the walkers came from.

Let’s get to it.  The show starts in the prison. Everyone is talking about whether they should stay at the prison or find somewhere else to go. Rick does not want to run and Glen is backing him up. Merle tells him that they are living like rats. He thinks they should have already left. Merle says that the Governor probably has scouts around the jail and will eventually try to starve them out.

Film Review: ‘The Last Stand’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

background1

Arnold Schwarzenegger once promised us he’d be back.  Well, he completely delivered on that promise.  It’s been over 9 years since Arnold has headlined an action film, the last being ‘Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines‘.  And now, Arnold is back with top billing in an action film.  The question is, does he still have same chops and draw that he did a decade ago? With its paint-by -the-number plot line and a 65 year old Schwarzenegger, you might think the worst.  However, the ‘R’ rated film, while a bit slow in the beginning, takes off with huge action beats and a plethora of violence, mixed with a bit of comedy, making it a lot of fun to watch and a decent welcome back party for Schwarzenegger.

BRIDGE – Interlude One

by Justin Cline on Jun 11th, 2012

 

The burnt man came to with a start, air flooding his lungs as if he were emerging from under water.  The lag time between sleep and waking was nil, his mind engaged and ready to begin what had by now become a familiar process, for even with all his knowledge of what was coming—all of this has happened before, and it will all happen again—, he was incapable of avoiding even a single step, starting with the room.

BRIDGE – Chapter Nineteen

by Justin Cline on Apr 25th, 2012

CHAPTER NINETEEN

By the eighth Mississippi, Bridge had his map back in hand and a good idea of where he was headed.  It must have been a long walk from the cemetery to The Bethany for a man who’d been forced to vacate his own grave, but in the van it was a short ride from their current location to the outskirts of the city.  The hope in making the trip was to find something—anything—at the gravesite that would point him forward in the investigation.  Between himself and the cat, they had killed off all other viable leads.

Sirens wailed in the distance.  Someone must have called the cops.  There were numerous apartment buildings along this street, all of which would have a perfect view of the goings-on below.  Had they simply heard a commotion or witnessed actual bloodshed?  The results were the same either way.  Bridge intended to be long gone by the time the first squad car arrived on the scene.  He wasn’t one for answering questions, especially when the first question asked would be How did this guy happen to lose his skeleton?

Bryan Takes One Hell Of A ‘Drive’!!! (A Movie Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 6th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

‘Drive’ surprised the hell out of me.  I really didn’t know much about the film before I watched it other than the title and that it starred Ryan Gosling.  While I was watching the movie there were tons of times where I said “Holy Shit!” or I said “Fuuuck” or I said “Hoooly Fuckin’ Moses”!  I had no idea that ‘Drive’ was not only hardcore on every single level, but the character development and story line was some of the best I have seen all year.  ‘Drive’ is an insane thrill ride with a heart of gold.  I loved every psychotic moment of this film.  And I think you will to if you have the stomach for it.

Classic Waxxx: “Top Ten Records of Summer”

by NapkinArt on Aug 5th, 2011

If you live in the south, especially Texas right now, you know how brutal Summer has been this year, probably one of the hottest in recent memory. Extreme drought, rolling blackouts, wild fires and dying vegetation and cattle seem to be making things quite miserable for everyone affected. From the looks of it, there is no relief in sight anytime soon. However, with that said there is no reason you still can’t enjoy the remainder of the summer. There are plenty of days left to hang out by the pool, sip on an ice cold glass or two of lemonade (or beer, if you prefer) and listen to some of the best songs ever recorded for those lazy Summer days.

‘The Goodbye Look’

Airdate 06/21/2011

When last we left the 4Gs, they were in a mysterious greenhouse text-snooping Melissa’s phone to get information on Rosewood’s most famous missing dead person, Ian. Cue the creepy slamming doors and then rocks or coconuts (neither make sense, but what else could it be?) falling from the sky on the glass panes.  Using their keen survival instincts, they leave and wind up walking in Allison’s old drive-way/yard only to see Jason (A’s brother). Parker Bagley was sneakily replaced with Drew Van Acker, former underwear model. This handsome, new Jason is dimpled and rough and blond. Now I finally have a legit reason to watch this show.

Apple has a new event today called “Back to the Mac” where they will be telling you about new products and new updates.  Check back here for live updates and pictures.

Apple’s online store is down for the moment so they can get ready for new items.

12:00 pm – – Steve is Out.

– – “Good morning everyone. I’d like to talk about revenue in putting the Mac business in context. The Mac made up 33% of our revenue last year. That was 22 billion.”

– – “To put this in some context, the mac company, if it were standalone… and we have no plans to do that… would be #110 on the Fortune 500.”

10:03AM – – “Now, with the share rising and the units rising much faster than the industry, we have a very vibrant dev community. We have 600k registered Mac devs. They’re growing at 30k per month.”

10:04AM  – -“We have new devs like Valve, they’re bringing titles simultaneously to the Mac and PC. Like Half Life. This is great for the Mac, and a great shot in the arm for gaming on Macs.”

10:04AM “AutoCAD is coming to the mac — we’ve coveted this for a long time.”

10:04AM “And then we have devs who are continuing to invest in the Mac like Microsoft.”

10:05AM “The Mac is #1 seventh year in the row, and Consumer Reports, #1 in the last decade.”

10:06AM “Pretty incredible results. Fueling this momentum is this incredible push into retail, which is still under 10 years old. Our stores welcomed 75m visitors last year. They sold 2.8m Macs. And about 50% of those are new to the Mac.”

10:08AM  – –  Steve Jobs is back on stage.”So let’s move on to some new products. I’d like to talk about iLife. It’s widely regarded as the best suite of digital lifestyle apps in the world. You can’t do this on any other computer. We improve it every year or two, coming out with new version.”

10:09AM  – – “We have a new version we’re announcing today — iLife 11. We want to give you a look at the apps. The first one is iPhoto — we tried this fullscreen mode in the last release — the response has been so great that we’re fleshing it out, you can live full screen. We’ve got a lot of Facebook enhancements, we’ve made it easy and elegant to email photos, we’ve added some new slideshows…”

10:10AM – – “A big leap in books. We’re printing 2m books a year. And we’re adding beautiful letterpress cards. A lot of great stuff. To take us through a demo, here’s Phil Schiller.”

10:11AM – – “I can click on faces and get a fullscreen faces view… and there’s a new fullscreen places view too. It’s gorgeous.”

10:12AM – – “You see pushpins on the map from every place I took photos — I can hover my mouse over any pin — I can click on it to go right to my photos, or I can say ‘show photos’ and that’s every photo from around that place.”

10:12AM  – -“We’ve got some amazing new slideshow themes.”

10:13AM – – “Let’s go into album view. The albums look a little like the albums you have on an iPad.”

10:14AM – – “This is called the reflections template.”

10:15AM – – “So that’s just three examples of templates for slideshows. Steve mentioned there’s a great new way to send photos via email. It can be cumbersome to cut and paste to get a bunch of images into an email.”

10:16AM  – -“I can just select them and say share, and right from inside of iPhoto it prepares an email.”

10:17AM – – “I’ve never left iPhoto and I mailed those off. It’s easy.”

10:18AM “Here you can see friends on Facebook and what they responded back after I posted it. So that’s sharing photos. Well what if I want to create one of these new books?”

10:20AM – – “I have complete control of this. I can customize it with a simple drag and drop. There it is. Maybe I want to highlight this page and make it really special.”

10:20AM  – – iPhoto now has a project view which is a fullscreen wooden bookshelf, a la iBooks.

10:21AM  – – Letterpress cards? There’s a video to explain them. Oh, it’s actual letterpressing. That’s kind of cool.

10:22AM  – -Steve is back… “I think that’s awesome. This is why we do what we do.”

10:23AM  – -“So we’ve taken iPhoto and broadened the full screen mode… we’ve taken books up a notch, and these letterpress cards… we’re really excited about these new features. And that’s iPhoto 11. Next up, iMovie.”

10:24AM “The number one request we got in the last version was better audio editing. We want to be able to do sophisticated editing really easy — if you don’t want to learn Final Cut Pro.”

10:25AM  – -“You can see here the audio waveform shows the fade in in this clip, and it’s all done live.”

10:26AM  – -“You can now select segments of audio — you can move the levels of just that segment. It gets quiet in just the segment we selected.”

10:26AM  – -“We’ve added audio effects…” This is cool, realtime preview of audio effects. Pretty fun stuff.

10:27AM – – “I want to show you something called one step effects. We’ve got a nice double jump here — it’d be really nice if we did an instant replay…”

10:28AM  – -“So really complex editing with just a couple of clicks. The next thing I want to show you is movie trailers. We now have 15 movie trailers.”  Hell YES!  INSTANT Movie Trailers.

Tons of people are going to be making trailers and posting them on youtube.  OH BOY!

10:30AM  – -Being able to adjust FPS speed! A minor note here — but that’s big.

10:31AM  – -You can switch to 24fps if you like.

10:31AM – -The trailer tool gives you templates that ask for specific types of clips. You just drag and drop the appropriate clips into the outline.

10:32AM  – -Face detection tech from iPhoto is in use here, can now detect faces in video. Can also detect whether a shot is a close up or wide. Pretty interesting application of the technology.

I cannot wait to start making trailers.  The killer muppets trailer will get better.

10:37AM  – -Steve is back! “That is awesome, you know Randy and his team invented all this stuff.”

10:38AM – – “So a lot of great new features in iMovie 11. We also have a new Garageband. Garageband 11. It has some great new features to help you fix timing in your music, something called flextime… more effects… and new piano and guitar lessons. Here’s Xander Soren.”

10:40AM  – -“We’re going to open an existing song. Now imagine a group of kids have gotten together to jam in their garage, and every recorded to a drum loop. Now I think it’s going to be clear that these guys are going to need a little help.” Ouch, lots of off time playing. “Kind of mess, right? Well the problem is the rhythm, everyone is playing sloppy. Drums are great, they’re the only thing in the song that’s right.”

10:41AM  – -So the new GB does “groove correction” automatically.

10:41AM – – “We don’t want our songs sounding robotic.

10:41AM – – “Much better, right? It’s like an automatic spell checker for bad rhythm.”

10:43AM – – Flextime allows auto dragging of lengths of waveforms. You can make notes longer or shorter at will.

10:44AM  – – New fullscreen view of Lessons — again, looks very much like an iPad application. It’s pretty clear where Apple is headed with this stuff.

10:45AM  – -New “how did I play” is a lot like Rock Band… but less fun.

10:46AM  – – It keeps a history of your performances so you can relive painful mistakes.

10:47AM  – – Steve is back!

10:48AM – – “Isn’t that great? So, GarageBand 11 with some great new features in it. Over 5m use GarageBand now. So, iLife 11. iLife 11, all this amazing engineering that’s gone into these products… is free with every new Mac. If you want to upgrade your existing Mac, just $49.”

10:48AM  – – “And iLife 11 is available today.”

10:48AM  – – “Thanks to Greg and everbody on his team. So that’s iLife. Next up, I’d like to talk about FaceTime.”

10:49AM – – “The number 1 request we’ve gotten is, can we please do FaceTime calling with these devices and the Mac? We’re introducing FaceTime for the Mac today.”

10:51AM “There’s nothing to set up, there’s nothing to configure… it’s a very simple demo.”

10:52AM – – “So that’s FaceTime for the Mac, and we’re going to release that in beta… today!”

10:52AM – – “There’s the new logo.”

10:52AM – – “Now, next up, the entrée for today… we want to give you a sneak peak at where we’re going with OS X.”

10:53AM  – -“We’ve had seven major releases of OS X in the last decade. We’re improving with every release. We’re happy with Snow Leopard, but we’re going to take it even further. We’re going to give you a preview of the next version… and we call it Lion.”

10:54AM – – “What is the philosophy about Lion? That’s where Back to the Mac comes from. We started with OS X and we created a new version called iOS — it’s now used in the iPad as well. We’re inspired by some of those innovations. And we want to bring them back to the mac. Mac OS X meets the iPad.”

10:55AM – – “These are going to be some of the most exciting things. We want to show you a few key features. So what have we learned and become inspired by on the iPad? Multitouch gestures… the App Store… why not the Mac too?”

10:55AM – –  “App Home screens… full screen apps — every app on the iPad is a fullscreen app.”

10:55AM – – “Apps on the iPad auto save, you don’t have to bother saving your data. And when you launch apps, they auto resume… that’d be great on the Mac too.”

10:56AM – – “We want to bring some of this stuff back to the Mac.”

10:56AM – – “Let’s talk about a few of these — multitouch gestures. The first thing you think of is this…” Finger touching a MBP screen.

10:57AM – –  “It gives great demo, but after a while your arm feels like it’s going to fall off. Touch surfaces want to be horizontal.”

10:57AM – – “We put a trackpad on our mouse, and we’ve come out with a pure trackpad for desktops.”

10:58AM – – “The App Store — it’s been huge as you know. On the iPhone it’s completely revolutionized mobile apps. Over 7b apps have been downloaded. We’d like to bring it back to the Mac. For Lion we’ll have a Mac App Store.”

10:58AM – – Best place to discover apps. One click downloads. Auto app updates. Free and paid apps with a 70 / 30 split. Apps are licensed for use on all your personal Macs.

10:59AM  – -“That is the Mac app store. You’ll have a single place to put them — the launch pad — home screens for your apps.”

10:59AM – – “So there’s one other thing we’d like to show you today. We have these four cool things we do in OS X. Expose, Dashboard, full screen apps, and spaces…”

11:00AM – – “This is great, but as we’ve added fullscreen apps, you know we have four of these things. Wouldn’t it be great to unify these? And we’ve done that in something we call mission control.”

11:00AM  – -App Store is a standalone app — looks a lot like iTunes.

11:01AM – – In fact, nearly identical, and navigation seems largely the same as well. It also auto-tracks updates.

11:01AM  – -“I want to show you just how easy it is to install an app.”

11:02AM One-click on the “buy” button. Drops the app into your dock and auto-downloads.

11:02AM  – -“That’s the Mac App Store.”

11:02AM  – -“Next up is the launchpad.”

11:03AM  – -You can also create folders, exactly like iOS. This is essentially an iOS Springboard layer on OS X.

11:05AM  – -You can use a multitouch gesture to swipe away from your fullscreen app and back onto the desktop or another app.

11:05AM – – Dashboard is now a screen you can flip to using gestures.

11:06AM – – Mission Control is an Expose view of your windows, your open apps (at least the fullscreen ones), and your dock.

11:07AM – –  It layers apps with multiple Windows in a stack, almost identical to Palm’s new webOS stacks!

11:07AM – –  Steve is back.

11:08AM  – -“We’re really excited about Lion. These new features are going to delight Mac users.”

11:08AM  – – “I wish we had another hour and a half to show you more. Our plan is to release Lion this summer, 2011.”

11:08AM – – “So that is OS X Lion.”

11:09AM – – “Now I want to go back and talk about the App Store for a minute. The Mac App Store is going to be really great for our users. We don’t want to wait for Lion. We’re going to put it out on Snow Leopard, and will open within 90 days.”

11:11AM – – “These are the things we wanted to share with you today… but there is one more thing.”

11:11AM  – – “That one more thing really comes back to our theme today. We talked about this virtuous circle.”

11:12AM – – “Just like this philosophy has benefit in our software, it can have benefit in our hardware. What would happen is a Mac met an iPad?”

11:12AM  – -“Instant on… great battery life, amazing standby time… solid state storage… and it’s thinner and lighter.”

11:13AM – – “These are some great things for notebooks. So we asked ourselves, what would happen if a MacBook and an iPad hooked up?”

11:13AM – – “This is the result… it is our new MacBook Air, and we think it’s the future of notebooks.”

11:14AM  – -“It’s amazingly thin. At its thickest point, it is 0.68 inches thin. And it tapers to .11 inches. And it weighs 2.9 lbs.”

11:14AM – – “It’s hard enough to build something thin — but we want our products to be durable. So the new Air is complete Unibody construction.”

11:14AM – –  “So let me tell you a bit about it. It’s got a 13.3 inch LED backlit display.”

11:15AM  – – 1440 x 900 display, Core 2 Duo CPU, NVIDIA GeForce 320m, multitouch trackpad, FaceTime camera.

11:15AM  – -“There is no optical drive, and there is no hard drive. We have gone to flash storage. Why do we do this?”

11:16AM – – “Because we know the benefits from the iPad. Instant on. It’s much more reliable. And it’s 90% smaller and lighter.”

11:17AM  – – “The wireless web tests… these… the PC industry’s tests don’t reflect real world use. We’re moving to more real world tests. Even in these tests, we’re getting 7 hours of battery life. We think it’s a double improvement.”

11:18AM – – “So what’s inside this puppy? Let’s take a look. We have flash storage. 802.11n WiFi, C2D CPU, memory, stereo speakers… and our battery. You see what the biggest thing is in there. It’s our battery.”

11:19AM – – “Now this 13.3 inch MacBook Air isn’t the whole story… because it has a younger brother.”

11:19AM  – -11.6 inch little brother — even smaller and lighter.

11:20AM – – “So what are we going to price these at? We’ve tried to be really aggressive. We think all notebooks will be like this someday.”

11:20AM  – – Pricing starts at $999.

11:21AM  – -“Both of them are available starting… today.”

That’s it.  Thanks for reading along.
