4K UHD Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2018

 

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Dan Moran)

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal GadotBen AffleckJason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

Playstation Event!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 20th, 2013

Hi Bryan Here…

PlayStation has confirmed the mulitplayer demo for ‘Twisted Metal’ hitting PSN next week, on January 31st.   You will have to use the PSN Pass to play.  I used to play Twisted Metal quite a bit back in the 90’s.  I’m glad to see it coming back again.  Weird timing though.  I would of thought that they would have waited until the PS4’s release.  I know that is at least a year off, but that would be a huge launch title.

‘Overlord’ Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 10th, 2018

Overlord is the latest endeavor from sophomore feature film director Julius Avery and is produced by professional fanboy JJ Abrams.  Here’s how I imagine their meeting went.

Avery:  So, I have an idea for a video game movie.
JJ:  Well, we don’t own the rights to any video games, and those movies always suck.
Avery:  Yeah but see I play video games.
JJ:  OK, well, what video game do you want to base a movie on?
Avery:  ALL OF THEM!!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

game_of_death_1600

Good news, everyone. The BEST studio that brings you marital arts and Asian action cinema (Well Go USA) has just joined the cable cutting revolution and is getting its own subscription channel, similar to HBOGO and the WWE Network. Their channel will be called “Hi-YAH!“, as in the thing that the usual fun martial artists yell out when the swing chop, stab, swing chop someone on film and will debut on Playstation VUE on January 26th. Wait, that’s like next week (AWESOME). Don’t fret though, ‘Hi-YAH!‘ will be available on additional platforms later on in the year and will feature films from Bruce Lee, Donnie Yen, and Jackie Chan. Hopefully, as time goes on, there will be original content as well. For you Asian-action fans, this is HUGE news and a great addition to subscription based services. I already have a list of movies I want to see on the channel.

Film Review: ‘Concussion’!!

by Janet White on Dec 25th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Concussion - Omalu

 

Football, especially in Texas, is king and they are not alone in this mindset.  In Concussion, Pittsburgh, PA’s love for the game (as well as the rest of the country’s) and the NFL’s reign over it endangered Dr. Bennet Omalu’s (Will Smith) life.  Against all odds, Dr. Omalu, a forensic pathologist discovered and worked to educate the masses of the mental dangers of playing the beloved sport.  Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy (CTE) and its related diseases, named by Dr. Omalu since he discovered the disease, was and possibly still is affecting football players from kids to professionals.  Dr. Omalu is from Nigeria and holds America in high esteem, but his reverence is about to be tested.

Film Review: ‘Chappie’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2015

Fernando M., Here…

chappie_a

OK, so Neill Blomkamp (‘District 9‘) likes video games and old school sci-fi movies.  Just putting it out there. Chappie, the character, not the movie, is the result of a robotic police force and government robotics and one programmer that wants to push the limits of AI.  He does so with his creation “Chappie,” a robot with feelings, who is stolen and raised by a couple of gangsters who try to teach him to be a criminal for their benefit

Attention Batfans, Jana here,

 

20140621085640!Batman_Arkham_Knight_Cover_Art

 

I’m a bonafide Batfan from way back when Wonder Woman and Batgirl were on my knickers. This includes all things batty. Not like regular animal bats, because that would just be weird, or at the very least, awkward. If you call your pad the Batcave and you’re a Batman fan, all is well, if you call it the Batcave because it’s full of real bats, you might need to spend some time in Arkham Asylum. Don’t worry, it’s perfectly safe…er…well usually.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

sharlto_copley_michelle_forbes_a_l

 

 

At the end of last week, we brought you a story that featured some casting news for Sony Playstation Network’s first foray into the original programming world. You can read that story, here. Today, we have more casting info.

Sharlto Copley has been in back and forth negotiations to star in the series based on the graphic novel. Copley is an excellent actor and one of my favorite things about the ‘A-Team‘ movie in 2010. His turn as Murdock was so inspired and hilarious, I could watch him all day. I still make jokes about any food that tastes a little off as having been grilled by Murdock with his special sauce (antifreeze). Most recently he was seen in ‘Maleficent‘ as Stefan, there are two films in a post-production phase right now that are set to come out in 2015.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

Jumping into the SVOD game is Sony Playstation Network. This bit of original programming is bringing the graphic novel, ‘Powers‘ to the small screen. In a brilliant turn of casting Eddie Izzard and Noah Taylor have signed on to the series.

In a genre combination of superhero fantasy, crime noir and the police procedural, the series follows the lives of two homicide detectives, Christian Walker and Deena Pilgrim and is assigned to investigate cases involving people with superhuman abilities, who are referred to as Powers.  The comic began in 2000 and it’s still currently being produced.  Brian Michael Bendis writes and Michael Avon Oeming is the artist.

Hi, Bryan Here…

uncharted_drakes_fortune_1335

Director Seth Gordon has been hired to directed the epic video franchise, ‘Uncharted‘ for a movie adaptation. ‘Uncharted‘ is one of Sony Playstation flagship games and has a few different sequel games you can play. Gordon directed ‘Horrible Bosses‘ and ‘Identity Thief‘. But before all of that, he made one of the best documentaries in the last decade, which was ‘King of Kong‘. That documentary was about achieving the highest score in Donkey Kong. If you haven’t seen it, I highly suggest you do.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Amazon’s Prime Streaming Service just got a hell of a lot better.  It will be giving Netflix a run for its money.  EPIX signed a deal with Amazon that more than doubles Amazon’s streaming film catalogue.  This comes shortly after EPIX’s contract with Netflix expired.  Now films from Paramount, MGM, and Lionsgate will be available on Amazon’s Streaming service.  “We think customers will really enjoy watching new titles like The AvengersIron Man 2 and The Hunger Games on their Kindle Fire, PlayStation 3, Xbox, iPad or any of the other of the Amazon Instant Video compatible devices,” says Amazon VP Bill Carr.

Nintendo 3DS Will Not Be Ready For the Holidays

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 29th, 2010

If you were hoping for the new portable game system from Nintendo this year, thenI am sorry to report you will have to wait until 2011.


Nintendo slashed its earnings forecast by more than half Wednesday after announcing that its 3DS game machine, packed with glasses-free 3-D technology, won’t be ready to go on sale for Christmas.


The 3DS will go on sale in February in Japan, and March in Europe and the U.S., missing the year-end shopping seaon which is a critical time for all game-makers to rake in profits.


The portable machine looks much like the DS machines now on sale, and has two panels. The top panel shows 3-D imagery, giving players a relatively immediate illusion of virtual reality.

The 3-D games don’t require the special glasses that are needed for 3-D theater movies or 3-D home-console games like rival Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 3. They also don’t need 3-D TV sets.


I have always loved the Nintendo gaming systems.  Some of my favorite games of all time hail from the Nintendo exclusively.  This new system looks to be rad, but Nintendo will have to step up the game in regards as online playability and graphics.
