A Retrospective Look Back at the year 2007 in Movies!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2017

Written by: Dan Moran

It has been a decade since we have had an overwhelmingly great year of movies. There have been some ‘great movies’ for sure, that have been released since 2007, but a collective year of dominance like 2007 hasn’t been experienced in 10 years. We have to start with the films that people still talk about today from 2007. No Country for Old Men, There Will Be Blood, & Zodiac. I mean what a Top 3 for one calendar year!  The closest we got to this was in 2015 when the Top 3 was, Mad Max: Fury Road, Mad Max: Fury Road, & Mad Max: Fury Road.

Film Review: Baby Driver!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

baby-driver-image-3

Finally, Edgar Wright has made a musical in the most Edgar Wright way. The film is called Baby Driver and is the most fun I’ve had at the movies all year long. When Wright makes a movie, you shut-up, listen, watch, and have a cold pint, because you’re in for a fun-as-hell thrill ride. With his highly impressive resume of films, including Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End, and Scott Pilgrim vs The World, you quickly know that Wright is one of the coolest, best, and most fun filmmakers alive today.

Edgar Wright’s ‘Baby Driver’ Trailer is HERE!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 12th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-03-11 at 11.15.09 PM

I think we can all say that Edgar Wright is the coolest filmmaker that ever lived. Wright gave us ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘Scott Pilgrim vs The World‘, ‘The World’s End‘ and much more! Filmmakers can go their whole careers and never come close to making a film as fun or as good as any of these. Oh it’s true. It’s damn true. Luckily for us, Wright has been hard at work on his latest film, which is called ‘Baby Driver‘, and it finally has a trailer.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Edgar Wright, is a man known for some distinct movies that have a massive cult following. If you know who Simon Pegg is chances are you know who Wright is. Why do I say this? Because the two have collaborated on the Cornetto Trilogy consisting of some of the most awesome movies in recent history. ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The World’s End‘ are those movies and chances are good you can’t attend a Comic-Con anywhere without coming across someone dressed as one of the characters.

Film Review: ‘Ant-Man’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

ant-man_movie_image_collection

The Marvel Cinematic Universe continues this summer of 2015 with ‘Ant-Man‘, which is a lesser known character and storyline than the usual big Avenger characters. This is a film that i’ve looked forward to for a few years now, because the story of ‘Ant-Man‘ and his abilities are very cool. When I had my comic book store, I actually had the first five issues of ‘Ant-Man‘ ever. I really dug those comics. Imagine how excited I was when news broke that director Edgar Wright signed on to write and direct the film.

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.

When I first heard about “Hector and the Search for Happiness” I was really excited for “another Simon Pegg movie”, something with slapstick comedy and probably a bad guy that could be smashed in the head with a cricket bat (Shaun of the Dead, World’s End, Hot Fuzz, Spaced). The more I started looking into the movie, the more I realized that it wasn’t going to be just another Simon Pegg film, and became intrigued about what it was he would have to offer if not bashing people in the head with a cricket bat.

Film Review: ‘Hector and the Search For Happiness’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-Simon-Pegg

You can’t help but love Simon Pegg. His roles in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, and ‘The World’s End‘ are legendary. His work on the recent ‘Star Trek‘ films, ‘Paul‘, and in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ films have been excellent and very comical. That aside, i love seeing Pegg work on dramatic films, because not only is he one of the best comedic actors around right now, but he is also one hell of a dramatic actor, and his new film ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness‘ highlights that.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Three_Flavours_Cornetto_Trilogy_DVD

 

Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Edgar Wright are a trio their fans love seeing come together. They put together a troika of films dubbed the The Three Flavors Cornetto trilogy as they’re color-coded and coincide with a specific Cornetto ice cream flavor. . ‘Shaun of the Dead‘ features strawberry-flavored Cornetto, signifying the film’s bloody and gory elements. ‘Hot Fuzz’ is the original blue Cornetto and signifies the police element in the film. ‘The World’s End‘ is a tasty green, mint chocolate chip flavor in a subtle nod to aliens and science fiction. Pegg and Wright wrote the films with rapier-sharp wit, killer action and a touch of ticker.

You Must Watch The ‘What If’ Trailer!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 3rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

What-If-600x650

Mark the movie ‘What If‘ at the top of my list of movies to see this year. This trailer is great. ‘What If‘ is a romantic comedy starring Daniel Radcliffe (‘Harry Potter’), Zoe Kazan (‘Ruby Sparks’), Adam Driver (‘Girls’), and Rafe Spall (‘Hot Fuzz’). It’s a story we’ve seen before, but this looks like it’s done perfectly. Basically, Radcliffe plays Wallace who falls in love with a new girl named Chantry (Kazan), but quickly finds out she has a boyfriend. So it’s kind of a wrong-place, wrong-time type scenario.

Edgar Wright Will Not Be Directing ‘Ant-Man’ Anymore!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Worlds End - Photocall

I’m afraid I have some bad news. Director Edgar Wright has exited ‘Ant-Man‘, the upcoming Marvel film. This just sucks. Wright who has directed ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘The World’s End‘, and ‘Scott Pilgrim‘ was announced as the director of ‘Ant-Man‘ a few years ago and recently released casting news that Paul Rudd was going to star in the film. Well, we got word today that Wright and Marvel have parted ways due to creative differences on where they want to see the film go.

Hello, Jana here,

Nick+Frost+Simone+Callahan+Warrne+Hoyts+Melbourne+Lvg-4s7ESKDl

Fox has hit the jackpot when it comes to casting this season. British writer-actor Nick Frost has officially signed on to co-star in ‘Sober Companion‘ with Justin Long. Frost is an extremely bankable commodity that automatically ups the production value of a project. He is normally seen co-starring with best friend and frequent collaborator Simon Pegg. The pair have given us The Cornetto Trilogy comprised of ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘ and ‘The World’s End‘. They also starred together in ‘Paul‘ which the pair wrote together.
