Film Review: ‘Zootopia’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 2nd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Zootopia

Finally, Disney has resurrected the animated animal film genre with ‘Zootopia‘ The genre was for sure getting stale with yet another ‘Ice Age‘ and ‘Madagascar‘ film coming out every year or so. That’s not to mention the ‘Kung-Fu Pandas‘ or any of the other sloppy films that have come out in recent years. That is until ‘Zootopia‘ has given new life to the world of talking animals with an incredible voice cast, hilarious bits that will leave you laughing out loud, a story that is highly entertaining, and great and very relevant messages throughout. Both adults and kids will find many things to love about ‘Zootopia‘, which is a thing Disney has been getting right for a number of years now.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

For you ‘Divergent‘ fans, here is a new trailer for the third film in the series ‘Allegiant‘. I have not been a fan of these movies, but I know a lot of you are. The new trailer promises more action and melodrama, but in the past films, they never deliver to full satisfaction. Here’s hoping for a better film with the third one.

Film Review: ‘Insurgent’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2015

Taylor E., Here…

640_insurgent_trailer_20141212

Insurgent, the sequel to the popular young adult trilogy-turned-film-series, takes place immediately following the events of Divergent. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), are on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), who is hunting the Divergents. This action/adventure/science fiction-thriller failed to perform, but was at least pretty to watch. Insurgent would be far more enjoyable if viewed on “mute”.

Film Review: ‘Black or White’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

la_ca_1201_black_or_white

A family has a mother, father, and maybe children, a standard definition of a family.  A family is a group of people who are related to each other, yet another definition.  Nowhere in either definition is a mention of color, right?  Since the beginning of time families have blended nationality, ethnicity, and race.  This fact doesn’t make the families any less bound.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

boombox-say-anything

 

1989 saw a lot of movie releases, but one film truly had lasting power. If you look back over television and movies since then, there is going to be one scene, one action that stands above the rest. A boy holding a boombox over his head, serenading the girl of his dreams with Peter Gabriel’sIn Your Eyes‘.

The ‘Twilight’ Saga Continues on Facebook?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 1st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

51q43VqS6UL

 

Facebook is reviving characters that have been dead a long time. Prepare yourselves for the global sound of Twihards the world over to squeal with delight. Facebook is getting into the film game with ‘Twilight‘ short films. You read that right. Stephenie Meyer wrote what has become the ‘Twilight Saga‘. Beginning in 2005, Meyer released the first novel in a series that would grip fans of all ages and create characters that would be immortalized in film. While some of us were letting our broomsticks cool down from a wild ride with a boy wizard, cold vampires and hot werewolves were heating up readers pages again. The saga ran the length of four novels and one short story as a spinoff.

OSCARS: Who Got Snubbed?!?!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Well the Oscar nominations are in, which you can see by CLICKING HERE. There were some great nominees this year, but tons of stuff got snubbed. I can’t believe some of the misfires this year. There are tons of films and people that should have received a nomination. Here are some that got snubbed in my opinion.

Kim L. Here….

 FRUITVALE

The first word that comes to my mind about this movie is… Heart.  Based on a true story of Oscar Grant, the 22 year old that was murdered by a police officer in the early hours of New Year’s Day in 2009 at the Fruitvale BART Station in the Bay Area of California, the story follows Oscar, played by Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights) on the last day of his life and shows the ups and downs he faced as a young man and father trying to do the right thing.

Film Review: ‘Fruitvale Station’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 fruitvale-station-trailer-05112013-112150

What a rough movie to get through. After the credits rolled and the lights came up in the theater, there was not a dry eye in the house. Instead of a documentary, we have a narrative account on the real life murder of Oscar Grant, an incident that occurred on New Years Night in 2009 that sparked large protests and riots in Oakland and around the country. In his first feature film effort, director Ryan Coogler takes us through the life of Grant in the hours leading up to his untimely murder. Major Hollywood figures have been involved in this case with Forest Whitaker serving as producer on the film and Octavia Spencer playing the role of Grant’s mother. This film needs to be seen by everyone and I wish I could buy everyone a ticket to see ‘Fruitvale Station’.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

It seems that everything can be made into a movie, anymore. Where Hollywood seems to hit the re-make option a bit too much, they also surprise us with something very original. Case in point – ‘Tupperware Unsealed‘. Sony recently picked up rights to author Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book that will be the basis for the film which will star Sandra Bullock.
