THE FILM

It’s a damn shame that every action movie can’t be as good as ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘. So many action films will try, but will ultimately fail for a variety of reasons. Pure action filmmaking and movies just don’t get better than this movie. ‘Fury Road‘ is a troubled story to say the least. Original creator George Miller who made the original three ‘Mad Max‘ films had the idea for this fourth installment back in 1998. That’s 17-years ago. This project wasn’t necessarily put on a hold shelf, but a few things had happened to delay the film from being made. From 9-11 to foreign policy, to Mel Gibson’s infamous arrest, there were a variety of things that prevented this movie from seeing the light of day.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ (3D Version)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 24th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

91thcgvpwEL._SL1500_

This is more or less the same exact review as the 2D version of the film, which you can see here. The only difference here is there is an extra disc that sports the 3D version of the film. All of the extras, subtitles, audio presentations, and film itself are the exact same. And no, there is unfortunately not the fabled B&W version of the film here or on the 2D version. Maybe someday in the future we’ll get that, but if you want to read about the 3D presentation, skip down to the “VIDEO/AUDIO” section. Thank you and YES, this is a MUST-OWN!

If you want insanity coupled with a heroin trip you talk to Hunter S. Thompson, in his absence though, you watch the new trailer for ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘! Director George Miller takes us back to the barren wasteland that sets the stage for the rocket-fueled performances from stars like Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz.

The 1979 hit that made Mel Gibson a superstar is being re-launched….as is everything that was once great, good or even mediocre. George Miller is back to direct the franchise that made his name 35 years ago with Mad Max: Fury Road. Mel Gibson will be back, as well, but not in the lead role. That torch has been passed on to Tom Hardy (Warrior, Lawless, The Dark Knight Rises). Joining Hardy are co-stars Charlize Theron (Monster, Aeon Flux and Snow White and the Huntsman)and Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodiess, Jack the Giant Slayer and X-Men: First Class).This makes the first Mad Max movie since 1985’s Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.

Film Review: ‘[KIN]’!!

by Janet White on Aug 28th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Crash. Pew Pew. Woosh. Boom. Maneuvering through the ruins of an abandoned building, KIN opens with the coolest sound mixing that I have heard and literally felt in a long time. Eli Solinski (Myles Truitt) searches for scrap metal to sell, but finds a weapon endowed with great power and a secret that will alter his life. An outsider, Eli has few friends and lost his mother at a young age. It is no wonder why he is so reserved in his demeanor. At least until you mess with his family. Hal Solinski (Dennis Quaid), Eli’s father, comes home to find Eli suspended for fighting and his elder son, Jimmy Solinski (Jack Reynor) released from prison. Can his day get better?

Dan’s 2018 Oscar Picks!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 3rd, 2018

Here are my Oscar Predictions. I haven’t seen many of the shorts or documentaries so I didn’t even bother with those, but I have seen everything else that is nominated for the big categories except Call me by Your Name. Also, I fell asleep during The Post, but so did everyone.

As a hard and fast rule, I refuse to recognize any recent best picture winners until a movie comes along that was better on every single filmmaking level than Mad Max: Fury Road. This year is no different, so congrats to Fury Road.

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.

Director Lucia Aniello (‘The Traveling Bong‘, ‘Broad City‘) lights up the big screen with Scarlett Johansson (‘The Avengers‘), Kate McKinnon (‘Saturday Night Live‘) and Zoë Kravitz (‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘) in a Hangover-ish flick about a bachelorette weekend. Well, a bachelorette party gone wrong since a male stripper ends up dead at a Miami beach house.

leonardo-dicaprio-inline-zoom-e780bd67-8bfe-4cb1-a724-88c8403b9bba

I am a Leonardo DiCaprio fan. I’ve never hidden it, but I am. I wasn’t in love with him and his boyish good looks like other girls my age were, I recognized him from ‘Growing Pains‘, after all. He didn’t begin his career as absolutely gorgeous, that developed over time. I had to learn to love his work for what it was. Saying that, Leo’s been overlooked for that naked, golden, guy many times before he finally won his first Oscar at last night’s award show.

Radar_Charlize_Theron_Mad_Max_4

If you had to pick a leading female actor to play the villain in what’s largely been a male dominated franchise, like for the eighth installment of the ‘Fast and Furious‘ franchise, who would it be? If it were me, I might look at the star of  ‘Mad Max: Fury Road‘, Charlize Theron. She was a welcome addition to the George Miller film which has gained multiple Oscar nominees.

Bryan Kluger’s Best/Worst of 2015!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

1140-mfg-2015-Readers-Choice-Best-Movie-poll-collage-promo.imgcache.rev1449178940055.web.722.414

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2015 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2015 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2015.  I believe this year I watched over 175 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some strawberry cake covered in Lucky Charms, I finally had a TOP 15, however, these films are in no particular order this year. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

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:

Gillian Flynn wrote three books: Sharp Objects, Dark Places and Gone Girl. She has a very distinct writing style and the books are filled with a darkness and a narrative that is riveting and disturbing and draws you in. It’s what makes her books so enjoyable and so suspenseful.
