Hi, Bryan Here….

FantasticFour_Head

We knew that Fox was rebooting their ‘Fantastic Four‘ franchise for some time now. The last two ‘Fantastic Four‘ films were both pretty awful, so it is only fitting that we get a new vision of one of Marvel’s greatest super-hero teams. Josh Trank is directing, which his claim to fame was the ‘found footage’ super-hero film ‘Chronicle‘. I think this is a good fit for him. And the only person attached to the movie so far is actor Michael B. Jordan (‘Fruitvale Station‘).

Film Review: ‘The Martian’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 1st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

martian-gallery3-gallery-image

It’s no doubt in my mind that director Ridley Scott was the perfect person to direct ‘The Martian‘, which was based off of Andy Weir’s 2011 novel of the same name. His brilliant story telling and eye to make a desolate planet like Mars look beautiful is simply majestic. Scott is mostly known for directing ‘Alien‘ and ‘Blade Runner‘, which kind of makes him one of the Godfather’s of science-fiction, but he has a few other gems on his resume too, all in different genres. With a movie like ‘The Martian‘ that is in the sci-fi realm, I was pleasantly surprised and overjoyed to find the film quite funny with a very feel-good quality to it, which is something that is not really present in Scott’s sci-fi movies.

Film Review: ‘Fantastic Four’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 6th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

fantastic_four_2015_movie-wide

Fantastic Four‘ has always been a fun comic book. Ever since the early 60s, these four heroes have entertained us in each crime fighting, earth saving, and alien destroying issue. With Reed Richards, Johnny and Sue Storm, and Ben Grimm, there was nothing that these four couldn’t handle. One of my favorite story arcs was from the mid-2000’s where Ultimate Fantastic Four had to deal with zombies. It was an excellent storyline, one that I wish will be told on the big screen at some point. Speaking of the big screen, the Fantastic Four have never seen a good adaptation.

Hey guys, Jana here,

mart-720x1066

The news is full of examples of a person overcoming what appear to be insurmountable odds. It’s no surprise that art imitates life in this vein. Granted the particular set of circumstances in this film have yet to be duplicated in reality, but it’s only a matter of time. I’m talking about the next Matt Damon vehicle, ‘The Martian‘.

Here is our 32nd episode of ‘The Multi-Media Men‘, and we are back from a two week hiatus from covering the Dallas Film Festival.  We recorded this 32nd podcast on Easter Sunday morning in Dallas, TX, and were missing a couple of regulars. However, we were joined by Susan Kamyab of ‘This Chix Flix‘ and ‘Irving Community Television‘ this weekend and she made an excellent addition to the podcast. And since we are back from our small break, what better way to celebrate than with one of our infamous ReCast segments. We went ahead and did it. We ReCast ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show‘, which is one of the best films of all time. There is no way we can replace any of the actors aboard here, but we know that MTV wants to remake it and in this day and age, it is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us?  And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information. And don’t forget to visit iTunes and Stitcher to subscribe to our podcast. Enjoy the show.

Hello, Jana here,

 

Fantastic-Four-reboot

 

By now, everyone has learned that Fox is doing a reboot of ‘Fantastic Four‘. I will never, ever understand the studio decision to re-make a movie that is not very old. ‘Fantastic Four‘ came out in 2005 so it’s not even 10 years old, yet. Stars from the film and the director are still very relevant to what is current. They’re all still working in big budget situations and are drawing crowds.

Danny Boyle’s New Film “127 Hours”

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2010

Danny Boyle (28 Days Later, Slumdog Millionaire, Trainspotting, Sunshine, Millions) is hard at work in post on his new movie “127 Hours”. I have been hearing quite a bit about this movie.

“127 HOURS is the true story of mountain climber Aron Ralston’s (James Franco) remarkable adventure to save himself after a fallen boulder crashes on his arm and traps him in an isolated canyon in Utah. Over the next five days Ralston examines his life and survives the elements to finally discover he has the courage and the wherewithal to extricate himself by any means necessary, scale a 65 foot wall and hike over eight miles before he is finally rescued. Throughout his journey, Ralston recalls friends, lovers (Clémence Poésy), family, and the two hikers (Amber Tamblyn and Kate Mara) he met before his accident. Will they be the last two people he ever had the chance to meet?”

I’ve heard that at a few of the film festival screenings, people have passed out due to the graphic nature of one amputation scene. Danny Boyle has continued to give us one golden movie after another. He has tackled quite a bit of different genres from re-defining the Zombie genre to a psychological sci-fi thriller, to the academy award winning picture comedy/drama Slumdog Millionaire. Now he is going into the realm of factual based events with this Ralston Guy.

I cannot wait to see this movie. The movie comes out November 5th.

Check the trailer below.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

53fe9c57-1190-4d61-b197-fcda11fc89af

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

DVD Review: ‘Robot Chicken: Season 7’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 4th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

RobotChicken_S7

THE SERIES

It’s hard to believe this little gem of a show has now had seven full seasons. Creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich have molded a stop motion show of action figures into a cult phenomenon that is one of Adult Swim’s biggest series. If you’re unfamiliar with the series, each episode is less than 15 minutes in length and is a series of very short comedy skits, all using stop motion with action figures. The catch is that it’s definitely geared towards adults, since the comedy is very R rated.

Woozie Reviews ‘L!fe Happens’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 12th, 2012

Woozie Here…

From the beginning of L!fe Happens, we know this film is going to be a bit bawdier than the usual chick flick , as best friends Kim (Krysten Ritter) and Deena (Kate Bosworth) frantically decide who gets to use the last condom in the house. Fast-forward many months later and we find the pair flirting with guys in the car next to them only to be thwarted by baby buzz kill, Krysten’s consolation prize for losing use of the condom. From here the audience is taken on the expected journey of Krysten growing into single-motherhood, looking for love, and holding onto a changing friendship.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.
