‘Escape Room’ – Film Review!

by Janet White on Jan 4th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

Puzzles are amazing. They push you to think and not just any ole thinking. You have to see through, around, up and down, probably why I love being a critic. Anyway, locks slide and toggles click as the screen fades in from black. Escape Room opens with a chessboard followed by a pan around an overloaded study, foretelling much. The sounds did not match the image that appeared. I wanted to like Escape RoomRead the rest of this entry »

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2017

There is nothing that can be said about ‘The Room‘ that hasn’t been said already.  There’s a book about it, there’s about to be a feature film about it, and it’s show on countless theaters at midnight screenings.  But for those of you who don’t know, let me tell you about this magic.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

HBO and the Duplass Brothers have come together to make an anthology series titled Room 104, which will have a brand new story each week, where the tone, theme, characters, and time period changing that all takes place in a room at a motel. Below is more information, but I can say that the trailer for this show looks quite good. I mean, it’s HBO, so what would be bad about it, right?

by Gumbercules9000 on May 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Green Room‘ was my favorite film from 2015’s ‘Fantastic Fest‘. You don’t get much better than Patrick Stewart as a bad neo-nazi, trying to kill a punk rock band. Not only that, you have the ‘Blue Ruin‘ guys Jeremy Saulnier and Macon Blair on top of this film as well. It’s in theaters now, and I highly recommend you go and see it. Lionsgate has just announced the Blu-ray too, which will release on July 12th with some cool extras. Below is the information.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Julia Roberts hasn’t seen enough of the courtroom dramas, granted it’s been about 16 years since she last starred in ‘Erin Brockovich‘, but ‘Train Man‘ has come along and it looks too good to pass up for ‘America’s Sweetheart‘.

Film Review: ‘Assassination Classroom’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 18th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

Imagine that the leaders of Wal-Mart suddenly snapped and created an invincible killing machine out of their famous smiling logo (not that far-fetched now that I think about it). Now imagine that same death machine decided to take a breather and teach students at a Japanese high school. If you were to film such an event, you’d have something similar to director Eiichirô Hasumi’s creation. The end result is a heartwarming tale of global destruction that’s fun for the whole family.

Film Review: ‘Green Room’!

Jay S., Here…

As a hobby musician, I’ve played a few sketchy venues.  I’ve had occasions where I had to worry about whether or not I would be paid, and I’ve even had a couple of times where my physical safety held the forefront of my thoughts.  In his latest triumph, “Green Room,” writer-director Jeremy Saulnier (‘Blue Ruin‘) takes ahold of those themes and runs screaming into the woods, dodging bullets, machetes, and outpacing the foaming jowls of kill-hounds.  During the Q&A at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, Mr. Saulnier told the audience about, as a teen, attending Punk-Rock shows and being perplexed and off-put at having to share the event with skinheads and neo-Nazis.  This experience he credited as being the seed that eventually led to the screenplay for his thrilling movie, “Green Room.”

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Keeping Room‘ is a western, albeit a radically new kind of western, let’s call it a feminist western, while we’re at it, imagine a feminist western that brings a combination of ‘Cold Mountain‘ and ‘Straw Dogs‘ to the screen. Set at the tail-end of the Civil War, Southerner Augusta (Brit Marling) encounters two renegade, drunken soldiers (Sam Worthington and Kyle Soller) who are dead-set on a mission of pillage and violence. Afterfending off and escaping an attempted assault she rushes towards safety.

Hey guys, Jana here,

ROOM_Poster

Emma Donoghue wrote what has become a sensational multi-award winner in ‘ROOM‘, then she wrote a screenplay and worked with director Lenny Abrahamson to bring the final product to the big screen. ‘ROOM‘ is incredibly moving, emotional in ways I didn’t really anticipate with an edge-of-your-seat thriller sensation as well.

The Emmy®-winning HBO drama series THE NEWSROOM will begin production on its third and final season this spring, with debut slated for fall, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. “THE NEWSROOM is classic Aaron Sorkin – smart, riveting and thought-provoking,” said Lombardo. “I’m sure this farewell season will be one to remember.” This show has had a good run with some amazing characters and writing.

HBO Renews ‘The Newsroom’ and ‘True Blood’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

HBO renews Sorkin’s ‘The Newsroom’ for a second season and ‘True Blood’ for a sixth season.  ‘The Newsroom’ update comes just one day after its second season.  Needless to say, it has tons of viewers and very positive reviews.  And the hit vampire/werewolf/werepanther/witch/monster show has been renewed for a sixth season.  This time, I don’t think Alan Ball will be involved.  It will be interesting to see how the show does with out him running the show.

David Reviews ‘The Bed Sitting Room’ DVD!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 17th, 2012

David, Here….

Firstly, I just want to point out that I enjoy British comedy.  It just has such a different feel than most of what we get on this side of the pond.  So, when I got my hands on this, I was understandably pretty excited despite not knowing anything about the film.  After reading the back of the case and watching the trailer (included on the title screen of the DVD) I was even more excited, it just sounded so absurd!  And… it was.
