Hi, Bryan Here….

From the groundbreaking TV series “Your Show of Shows” to landmark films like “Blazing Saddles” and “Young Frankenstein,” Mel Brooks has been one of the most influential voices in comedy.

Hello, Jana here,

Max+Brooks

Some people are riding a wave behind their parents’ fame having little to no reason to be known on their own. There are some people, like Joe Hill that use a different name so they are judged solely on their own work and not that of a well-known parent, in this case, Stephen King. There is another kind that does not change their name, but doesn’t go around waving their parents’ names around that seek success on their own. Max Brooks is in that category. Most people hear his name and immediately think ‘World War Z‘ or the book ‘Zombie Survival Guide‘. The fact that he’s the son of the fantastic and hilarious actors and filmmaker Mel Brooks and Anne Bancroft is not used to elevate his success.

‘JoJo Rabbit’ – Film Review! (Fantastic Fest)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2019

I expected this movie about a young boy named Jojo growing up during the fall of Nazi Germany to be Taika Waititi’s take on a classic Mel Brooks set up. It turns out Taika has not seen ‘The Producers‘ or any of the other Hilter satires that commonly spring to mind when you hear about the initial concept of this film. While often hilarious, ‘Jojo Rabbit‘ takes a different, more earnest direction.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #19!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2018

At least a dozen times per day, we all internally think the same sentiment. Those of us who are more courageous might speak it out loud. “I’m surrounded by fools.” Yes, we all think or scream this many times a day, whether we’re at the office, at home, out at a restaurant, or even watching the latest ‘Batman‘ movie at your local theater. Sure, we’ve replaced “fools” with other colorful words, such as morons, idiots, and even the occasional dingbat reference. It’s a thought that we all have shared more often than not throughout our daily lives that has become a universal joke over the decades. They’ve even made tons of merchandise, including keychains, bumper stickers, and T-shirts with this phrase on it. It’s like the universal wink to one another as we pass each other by in the hallways or on the streets. The other phrase we usually hear is “I’m surrounded by assholes”, which is more relevant today than ever.

Even the bad ones.

These movies have touched us in some way and have helped shaped our creative lives. Maybe this list will inspire you to make your own list and share it with us.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

‘Star Wars’ Spoof Is Coming to a Galaxy Near You!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

23807

Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are the guys mostly known for bringing spoof movies to theaters. They are responsible for the ‘Scary Movie‘ franchise, ‘Epic Movie‘, and ‘Vampires Suck’ to name a few. It was only a matter of time before they got their hands on the ‘Star Wars’ franchise. It’s just so unfortunate that Mel Brooks wasn’t the first on this front to do another ‘Spaceballs‘, which is what we all really want. Well, Friedberg and Seltzer are set to start filming their ‘Star Wars‘ spoof this Fall, titles ‘Star Worlds Episode XXXIVE=MC2: The Force Awakens The Last Jedi Who Went Rogue‘.

Gene Wilder June 11, 1933 – August 29, 2016

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 29th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

gene-wilder-blazingsaddles-5

Gene Wilder passed away today at the age of 83. He is one of my favorite actors and he elicits a smile from me when I just see his picture. He is neck and neck with Robin Williams for being my favorite comedic actor and his death rocks the film community where he made some of his most lasting contributions.

‘The Doctor and the Devils’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

doctoranddevils

 

THE FILM

The Doctor and The Devils‘ is a gothic thriller from the same production company that issued ‘The Fly‘, ‘Spaceballs‘ and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights‘ – Brooksfilms. Until I researched a little for this review, I didn’t even realize Mel Brooks‘ company made anything other than the classic hilarity his name automatically recalls. Brooks picked up the script from legendary poet Dylan Thomas, wherein the story of true life grave robbers, Burke and Hare is told. Maybe it was Brooks’ success with ‘The Elephant Man‘ that led him back to the surgical-experimentation game, whatever the conditions were, ‘The Doctor and The Devils‘ did not receive the same praise.

Re-Cast of ‘Blazing Saddles’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 15th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

url

Here is one of our infamous Re-Cast segments. We went ahead  and recast the funniest movie ever made, ‘Blazing Saddles‘, which was very ahead of its time and starred Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Slim Pickens, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn, Burton Gilliam, Mel Brooks, and Alex Karras. There is no way we can replace any of the amazing actors aboard here, but in this day and age, a remake 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? Let us know  if you agree or missed anything. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page and TWITTER 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.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 14th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

MuppetsMostWantedBlurayCombo_jpg_rgb

THE FILM

It’s very difficult to find a sequel that’s as good as the original. There aren’t a lot out there that are great sequels, but when they do come along, they are remembered forever. And maybe what worked so well for the first Muppet film that starred Jason Segel and Amy Adams is that it had a human element to it, and didn’t just follow the Muppets around. That’s not to say that this sequel ‘Muppets: Most Wanted‘ isn’t a lot of fun and very entertaining. It is, but it doesn’t have that magic that the last one had.

Film Review: ‘Mr. Peabody and Sherman’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2014

Rebecca S., Here….

724674-mr-peabody-sherman-movie-6

When I was a little girl, I would snuggle up on the couch with my dad and watch reruns of his favorite cartoon, Rocky and Bullwinkle. He would tell me all about “moose and squirrel”, Boris and Natasha, George of the Jungle, and Dudley Do-Right… but the one I loved best was Peabody’s Improbable History. It was clever, snarky, educational in the worst way, and full of horribly great puns (which I am still a sucker for). I was worried when going to see the new DreamWorks (Shrek, How to train your Dragon) movie Mr. Peabody and Sherman, that it would not live up to the kitschy cool of the original 5 minute shorts. I was pleasantly surprised to find a smart, fun movie that kept the cool (and the horribly great puns).
