Godzilla: King of the Monsters – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2019

“Godzilla: King of the Monsters receives a passing grade, because the monster fights really are that great!”

Godzilla: King of the Monsters is a frustrating mix of incredible special effects and monster fights with far too much Lifetime Network style human drama. As a fan of the first (new) Godzilla (2014) I was extremely excited for this one. I understood that in the first one the reason for limited Godzilla scenes was to create suspense and save money and I assumed that after the reveal of the first one this one would stray away from the issues of the first. Instead it doubles down on them by adding more useless human subplots, far too many human characters, and a story that (even for a giant monster movie) is just going through the motions.

Listen, Michael Bay, we need to talk.  It’s not you, it’s me.  Trust me on this.  You haven’t changed, I have.  Maybe I love you more than I should.  Is it wrong to love too much?  Maybe it was.  You will always be dear to my heart.  Your explosions are completely unmatched by any other.  Nobody can take that away from you.  No other director will ever replace your passion to film entirely in IMAX 3D just to make things that much bigger, and we’re already talking about GIANT EFFIN ROBOTS!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Transformers-4-IMAX-poster_1394643320

So here is the fourth film of ‘The Transformers‘ franchise from Michael Bay, who has basically rebooted his own series. And yes, Steven Spielberg is still producing to make a few extra bucks. But don’t count on Shia LaBeouf running around screaming in this one. Instead, you’ll have Mark Wahlberg (who was in Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘) trying to save the day. Hopefully there is a scene of him rapping and dancing.  Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller and Ken Watanabe also star. You can expect a lot of explosions and chaos, but not much else. The film opens up June 27th.  Enjoy.

Here Is Ben’s Film Review of ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

Despite a rich and incredibly varied film history, one would be hard pressed to imagine a more famous Japanese cinematic export than Godzilla. Born at Toho Company in 1954, he’s still alive and kicking ass, as it were, at the ripe age of sixty. Cast as a villain and a hero over the years, whatever his role, he has always been nature’s favorite solution to just about any problem. Six decades ago he was awakened by atomic bomb testing and took revenge on mankind for creating them. In this new Gareth Edwards iteration, other monsters feed on radiation from our nuclear power plants in order to wreak similar havoc, so Godzilla is sent to annihilate them.

Film Review: ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 13th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

godzilla_2014_poster_51784

 It has been sixty years since ‘Godzilla‘, the true king of all monsters first graced us with his appearance on the big screen. He definitely made a big impact on audiences around the world and spawned 31 sequels and remakes since then. Director Gareth Edwards brings that number to 32 with his epic and dark toned reboot that is sure to please fans young and old and have them roaring with joy as they exit the theater. Edwards was Hollywood’s top  choice to reboot this franchise after everyone saw his 2010 film called ‘Monsters‘, which focused on two lost lonely souls who have to trek through a quarantined zone in Mexico, while evading giant tentacled monsters.

Martin-Scorsese-directing-on-set-of-The-Departed

 

Martin Scorsese is a filmmaker of genius levels.Most people have seen at least one of his masterpieces and can tell you some of the elements he usually employs, like the criminal underworld, prolific use of profanity and Leonardo DiCaprio. Using his fail safe methods, themes and switching Robert DeNiro for  DiCaprio is a combination that lands him with award nominations and wins. He has directed many actors into the land of accolades as well. Coming high off DiCaprio’s Golden Globe nomination and subsequent win for his role as Jordan Belfort in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘.

Martin Scorsese is finally getting his two decade long wish to shoot Japanese novelist Shusaku Endo’s novel” Silence” next summer. The cherry on this sundae is that he got “The Amazing Spider-Man” himself, Andrew Garfield to play the leading role. Ken Watanabe (‘Inception‘ and ‘The Last Samurai‘) has also signed on to star in this project, which will most likely garner attention from international distributors at the Cannes market, a first for Scorsese. The religious topic of this book/movie is very important to him from his aspirations to priesthood to his screen adaptation of Nikos KazantzakisThe Last Temptation of Christ”.

Warner Bros. Plans to Remake ‘Unforgiven’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Since there have been two deaths in the past 24 hours, and bad news and deaths usually come in threes, I hope Clint Eastwood, doesn’t die of shock when he reads this.  Japan’s Warner branch is planning to remake the 1992 Clint Eastwood western ‘Unforgiven’.  This time it will be called ‘The Unforgiven’ and will star Ken Watanabe as the Eastwood role.  It will also be a samurai period flick.

Hi all, Jana here,

endo-silence-full

 

Martin Scorsese (‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘ and ‘The Departed‘) is one of my favorite directors. This hasn’t been a secret because I rave on his work, constantly. Well, right now Scorsese is going to get the chance to make a film he’s had on his list for more than a decade. I can’t imagine how that must feel to wait for over 10 years to do a film and it finally comes together! The center of attention in this announcement is that it’s for the film of the novel ‘Silence‘. Novelist Shusako Endo had given permission for the novel adaptation to be made once before in 1971. As with everything in Hollywood these days, a re-make is in the works. This time, a bigger budget, bigger stars, bigger director and , probably, a bigger audience.
