by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 20th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

bill-murray2

Bill Murray doesn’t do a whole lot of television anymore, but he has made an exception for HBO’s new miniseries ‘Olive Kitteridge‘, which is based on the award winning novel by Elizabeth Strout. The project will be directed by Lisa Cholodenko (‘The Kids Are All Right‘) and tells the story of a quaint town in New England where crime and steamy affairs happen between everyone. All is chronicled through the eyes of Olive, who will be played by Frances McDormand.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Writer/Producer David Simon is preparing to take HBO on an interesting ride, that is if they move forward with what’s been titled ‘The Deuce‘. It’s promising to be a storyline that is unlike any rabbit hole the cabler has traveled down before.

Hi everyone, Jana here,

Bryan Cranston

When you take a multi-faceted actor like Bryan Cranston, his many hats show throughout his career. You’ve got the spineless, browbeaten dad, Hal from ‘Malcolm in the Middle‘, the absolutely brilliant, frightening, genius that is Walter White from ‘Breaking Bad‘. Then you turn-around and he’s in the ‘Rock of Ages‘ musical whaling out Pat Benatar’s ‘Hit Me With Your Best Shot‘. He does some fantastic voice-over work for animated productions. Remember the 6-episode of the animated version to ‘Clerks‘? Chances are if you’ve seen that, you’ve heard Cranston’s voice ( you also understand Jay’s saying “we steal monkeys all the time!” in a later film), but I digress. PLUS!!!  Don’t forget that he’s a bad boy with the roller skates! Remember that episode in Malcolm where he had a big skate scene? That was really him doing it! He’s a renaissance man. The real deal. So it shouldn’t be such a surprise that after Cranston wrapped with ‘Breaking Bad’ that he went straight to Broadway.

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

Written by: Bryan Kluger

The director who brought us ‘Gravity‘, ‘Children of Men‘, ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien‘, and the best Harry Potter film is now playing with the horror genre, which just excites me to the end of the Earth. You mean to tell me, that Alfonso Cuarón who has terrified us with outer space and women not having babies will take the horror genre on head first? I’m so in.

Film Review: “Into the Storm”

by Woozie on Aug 8th, 2014

Suzanne here,

Screenshot 2014-08-08 19.46.09

At only 89 minutes, Into the Storm tries to tell too much story in too little time. With 5+ tornadoes, environmentalism, teen romance, family regrets, pushy bosses, this movie is a cyclone of poor acting and forced story telling.

Hey guys, Jana here,

westworld-poster

True Detective‘ set the bar higher than normal by casting the brilliant Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson. HBO has now turned it’s eye to ‘Westworld‘ hoping it will turn out to be as irresistible as ‘True Detective‘. HBO has won a pretty big prize in locking Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins and Evan Rachel Wood for the primary positions. Writer-Director Michael Crichton made the original ‘Westworld‘ in 1973, Yul Brynner, James Brolin, Dick Van Patten – Yeah, it was a whole thing.

So we’ve known for a while that there is going to be a re-make of the Marvel superhero ‘Daredevil‘. We know that Marvel has partnered with Netflix to bring us a 13-episode drama based on the comic book stories of the blind, lawyer from Hell’s Kitchen.

We’ve known for a while that Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) is going to play the eponymous Matt Murdock/Daredevil, and that Vincent D’Onofrio (‘Law and Order‘)  is going to play the juxtapositional Wilson Fisk, aka Kingpin. Today, we’ve gotten some more casting news. Deborah Ann Woll, Jessica from ‘True Blood‘ has been given the role of Karen Page.

Oprah Winfrey Supports MLK Biopic!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 28th, 2014

Jana B. here,

Martin Luther King

Think of all the biopics we’ve seen to date. Look at who they are about. Joan Crawford, Kennedy, Lincoln, Al Capone, Tina Turner, Ty Cobb, Lane Frost…the list is vast. There are a few personalities that get bio treatments from several people and others that have yet to be immortalized in film. We’re looking at a big screen, no-holds-barred Martin Luther King Jr. feature. Paramount is in final negotiations to acquire domestic distribution rights to ‘Selma‘, a feature drama about Martin Luther King’s 1965 landmark voting rights campaign regarded as the peak of the civil rights movement.

Haley Joel Osment Joins ‘Entourage’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 19th, 2014

Jana B. here,

haley-loel-osment-2011

Haley Joel Osment is a name that is said pretty much in the same sentence as “Have you seen ‘The Sixth Sense‘? You know the one that kid Haley Joel Osment is in?” For me, he kind of dropped off the radar since the flop that was ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence‘ and the mildly successful ‘Secondhand Lions‘ in 2003. Turns out he has voiced a slew of video game characters and has been in some movies I’ve never heard the name of. Osment is currently finishing up production on the Kevin Smith-directed comedy ‘Tusk‘ that is expected to release this fall.

Netflix confirmed that they have officially picked up a third season of the wildly successful straight-to-Netflix drama.  “Our intent is that the show keep going for sure. It was a 26-episode commitment. It was not our intent that it just run for two seasons”, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos said during the announcement.

Hi Bryan Here….

Oh GoBots.  You will always hold a special place in my heart.  You are like the HD-DVD to bluray.  Gone too soon.  In Kevin Smith’s ‘Clerks 2, Jason Lee’s character Lance Dowds references the Gobots as the “K-Mart” of Transformers.  This is very true.  In every way, shape, and form, the Transformers have outsold and outdone the Gobots.  And the Gobots were first on the scene one year before Transformers ever were.  There are tons of similarities between the two universes.  For instance, Gobots came from Gobotron and a year later the Transformers came from Cybertron.  But even the Gobots with their generic brand, it is still a good cartoon by the great team of Hanna-Barbera and quite fun.
