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.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2015

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:

Hi, Bryan Here….

1355416686-golden_globe_awards

Here are the nominees for the 2014 Golden Globe Awards. Wow, there were a lot of snubs here. And how did ‘Rush‘ make the list for Best Picture? No way! And what about ‘The Way Way Back‘, ‘Mud‘, or ‘Short Term 12‘ not being nominated? For shame. Let me know what you think of this nominee list?

Hi, Bryan Here…..

oscar_statues-4_3_r560

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.

You know you’re gonna want ‘Geostorm‘ on Blu-ray to watch every single detailed death, brought upon by hardcore weather. It’s basically ‘Independence Day‘, but with weather instead of aliens.

The ‘GeoStorm’ Trailer is Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 8th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-08 at 1.53.42 PM

.In what looks to be the absolute WORST film of the last five years, ‘GEOSTORM‘ finally has a trailer.What is ‘GeoStorm‘ exactly? First off, let me just say that this film was supposed to come out a couple of years ago, but keeps getting pushed back – for obvious reasons. Mainly because, it looks like a giant SHIT-STORM of Epic proportions. This film is directed by Dean Devlin who really hasn’t done a directing gig, but rather produced the ‘Independence Day‘ films. So take that information and replace alien invasions with giant tornados, tsunamis, and snowballs the size of Mt. Rushmore hurling into skyscrapers.

Hello, Jana here,

tumblr_mrsigiy2591rnwoh4o1_500

Benedict Cumberbatch is an actor that sends fan-girls reeling the world over. He has a quality that is simply irresistible, and film makers have monopolized on his popularity. His big breakthrough came in 2004 with a title role in the TV movie ‘Hawking‘. He worked steadily until he garnered another title role, this time playing the fictional genius, Sherlock Holmes in Steven Moffat’s ‘Sherlock‘. This is the role that marked him as the next big star and made him a household name. He has had his pick of prime acting gigs and his name has been on the tongue of casting directors since then.

Hi, Bryan Here….

enders-game-hailee-steinfeld

Finally, the trailer for Orson Scott Card’s 1985 sci-fi opus is here. ‘Ender’s Game‘ looks pretty damn good and now I’m all hyped up for this film. Directed and written by Gavin Hood ‘(X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘), the film stars Asa Butterfield ‘(Hugo‘) as Andrew “Ender” Wiggin, a boy who demonstrates enormous potential in battling an oncoming alien invasion that threatens the human race.

Hey guys, Jana here,

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.

Film Review: ‘Dead Snow 2’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

dead_snow_01

Some films are destined to become Oscar fodder. They are created, carefully crafted, to become instant nominees for the next award show. From the concept and design to the casting choices, nothing is left to chance. The same could be said for cult classics. Some films achieve cult status by being so horrendously awful that they circle around the giant, invisible wheel of crap back around to becoming great again. Still, other films seem as destined for cult status as those reaching for the awards. There is nothing stellar in these films. The acting won’t move you. The set designs often look like they were conceived on used McDonald’s napkins hours before the cameras start rolling. The concepts are the stuff of giving a teenager mountains of sugar, blindfolding them, spinning them around, and having them throw darts at a board full of random plot devices. Dead Snow 2 is such a film. You might think this to be a bad thing, but when such an endeavor is crafted with the same love and care as the Oscar contenders, something stupidly magical happens and cult status is achieved.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.
