Hello Jana here,

Max Landis

 Script writer Max Landis is a common denominator with several projects that are either in production or pre-production. In the wake of 2012’s ‘Chronicle‘, we find Landis’ name attached to at least 5 projects that are slated for release in 2015. the highly anticipated ‘Frankenstein‘ which will star James McAvoy as the titular Dr. Frankenstein and in a strange casting turn, Daniel Radcliffe is set to star as Igor. Another screenplay Landis has written is making some noise with a new casting choice.

Film Review: ‘Certain Women’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 27th, 2016

Violet O, here…

screen-shot-2016-10-27-at-5-40-54-pm

Certain Women‘ opened on a very long, mostly silent, incredibly slow scene of a train traveling the countryside. Unfortunately, this proved to be the pace of action and level of excitement throughout the entire 107min film. This movie attempts to tell three completely unrelated stories of three different women (Laura Dern, Michelle Williams and Lily Gladstone) living in rural Montana. The only commonality that I could find between these stories is their lack of direction and level of awkwardness.

Film Review: ‘Cafe Society’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 21st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

rs-247750-RS-Cafe-Society

Even at the age of 80, the iconic and prolific filmmaker Woody Allen has not lost his wit, charm, or ability to churn out film after film every year. With a little bit of ‘Annie Hall‘ and ‘Manhattan‘ mixed in the frying pan, Allen brings this 1930’s Hollywood story come to life, titled ‘Cafe Society‘. It’s been a while since Allen has made Los Angeles the backdrop for one of his films,and this sweet, funny, romantic film really hits all of those famous Woody Allen notes that we’ve come to expect over the years. It might not be the most original story, but when Woody Allen does these neurotic love stories, the characters, dialogue, and plot all come together in a cohesive and very funny manner. It’s what Allen does best, and he is back in full form with ‘Cafe Society‘.

Best Movies of 2015, According To Jana

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light. Having said that, this is my list of movies that 2015 blessed us with, and maybe a few the year cursed us with.

Film Review: ‘Jem and the Holograms’!

Taylor E., Here…

Jem-and-the-Holograms-thumb-600x348

We now live in an age where the Next Big Artist is being found online. Justin Bieber* was discovered on YouTube and being Vine Famous is now C-list enough to get you on Dancing With The Stars. It should then come as no surprise that the reimagining of ‘Jem and the Holograms‘ involves a viral video. Jerrica, being an overly shy singer-songwriter, records a song dressed in disguise as Jem. When her sister Kimber discovers the video on her camera, she secretly posts it to YouTube. The video goes viral and Jem is offered a record deal by THE Erica Raymond (Juliette Lewis) of Starlight Enterprises, which couldn’t have happened at a better time, since Jerrica’s aunt Bailey (Molly Ringwald) is about to lose their house. Jerrica accepts the offer, but only if her sisters get to come along as her band. Cue the makeover montage!

Film Review: ‘American Ultra’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

american-ultra-jesse-eisenberg-600x414

This late summer movie ‘American Ultra‘ mixes a good stoner comedy with high octane action with a great cast and some decent laughs throughout. You can add to that a good amount of bloody violence in the second half of things. That all being said, ‘American Ultra‘ seems to lose its steam far from the climax of the movie, and seems to just go through the motions until the end. Still, it’s a fun popcorn film to end the summer on. Director Nima Nourizadeh, whose only previous film was the found footage party movie, ‘Project X‘, leaves the handheld camera on the table here, and delivers some decent long shots of violence and action, which is a step up in his career.

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-ultra-poster-final

American Ultra‘ is a new take on the “sleeper” government operative. We’ve all seen the housewife activated to blow her best friend apart, we’ve seen the normal and usual suspects for a sleeper op and even though we know they can be anyone, sometimes the person they end up being is even more surprising to the inactive op themselves. Enter Mike Howell, your local stoner who just happens to be a mind-altered sleeper with some crazy skills. So well trained, he’s marked a liability and targeted for extermination. He’s just a bit more well-trained than anyone can handle.

Film Review: ‘Clouds of Sils Maria’!

Janet W., Here…

o-CLOUDS-OF-SILS-facebook

Clouds of Sils Maria opens as Maria Enders (Juliette Binoche), an accomplished actress, is headed to Zurich to accept an award on behalf of the director, Wilhelm Melchior, which launched her career with his play, Maloja Snake.  She travels with her personal assistant, Valentin (Kristen Stewart), who does everything for her as well as run lines with her and judge the depth of the characters and the scripts.  On their travels, they meet a director, Klaus Diesterweg (Lars Eidinger), who was working with Wilhelm wants Enders to act in the sequel to Maloja Snake.  Diesterweg does not want Enders to reprise her role as Sigrid, but as Sigrid’s lesbian lover, Helena.  Helena is the opposite of Sigrid and is much older thus springs Enders’ reluctance to accept the role.  A young, forthright, and darn right scandalous actress is to take the role of Sigrid, Jo-Ann Ellis (Chloë Grace Moretz).

Woody Allen Has Begun To Cast His Next Film!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 9th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

File photo of director Woody Allen  on the set of "The Bop Decameron" in downtown Rome

Woody Allen is one of the most prolific filmmakers in the world. Even at the age of 79, the direct still seems to get out one or two films a year for the past several decades. Each of these films are written and directed by him. He even finds time to star in his film and other friend’s movies, such as last year’s ‘Fading Gigolo‘ with John Turturro.

Film Review: ‘Ouija’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2014

Beka P., Here….

Screen-Shot-2014-07-16-at-12.35.36-PM-620x400

Have no fear, there is nothing scary about Ouija. I was pretty apprehensive about going to see Ouija, mainly because I’m not a horror film gal, and confession: I’ve never seen one in a theater. These two things brought my level of anxiety to all time high as I walked into the theater. Fifteen minutes into the movie, I actually found myself laughing. It’s not that writers Juliet Snowden and Stiles White meant to be funny, rather the acting in combination with the screenplay was so pathetic you had to laugh. While I was relieved that nightmares weren’t in my future, I didn’t care at all about finding out what happened to Debbie (played by Shelley Hennig).
