Jackson is teaming up with his wife, LaTanya Jackson and the pair is joined by Rushion McDonald for an A-list celebrity series.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Director Josh Boone, from ‘The Fault In Our Stars‘ is diving into the deep end for his next project. This could mean a few things in the world of film-making, I could be talking about his announced writing/directing gig for ‘X-Men: The New Mutants‘, but I’m not. I’m talking about not one, but two Stephen King adaptations Boone is taking on, with one of them being ‘The Stand‘. Crawl before you run, young padawan. Anyhow, the other adaptation is what’s in the news today, Boone is looking to make King’s 2014 book ‘Revival‘ the current project getting his attention.

Hey guys, Jana here,

biggamemovieposter_large

I have to admit, ‘Big Game‘ is a film that totally flew under my radar. I didn’t know this one was in the works and based on the poster, I was seriously thinking it’s going to be some kind of Sharknado-ish piece of film. Maybe it’s because Air Force One resembles a giant shark, you know, if it had teeth. It’s a really wonky pic of Samuel L. Jackson, too, really doesn’t showcase the Jackson we typically see. Anyhow, onto the film!

Hi, Bryan Here….

John Cusack (Mike Enslin) and Samuel L. Jackson (Mr. Olin) star in Mikael Håfström's 1408

Remember that book Stephen King wrote a few years ago that had a couple of people trying to escape the zombie-like apocalypse, due to a mobile phone signal being emitted everywhere that turned people into zombie-like killers? Well, they’ve been trying to make a movie adaptation of that for years now, and once upon a time, Eli Roth was attached to it, but that’s no longer the case. That film and book is called ‘Cell‘.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Hi folks.   Sorry for the lack of awesome news an updates.  It’s very busy here at Boomstick HQ.  Some really neat thing lined up in the next week or two.  So bare with me.  Thank you.  Now onto some BADASS news.  Samuel L. Jackson is joining the cast of the remake of ‘Robocop’.  Remember, I’ve been talking about this remake for a while and last time I talked with Peter Weller (the original Robocop), he was not enthused about this remake.  THis might change his mind.

Hi Bryan Here….

Kevin Costner has just joined Quentin Tarantino’s Spaghetti Western ‘Django Unchained’.  He is set to play a character named Ace Woody.  “He’s the sadistic trainer of the male fighting slaves who entertain the white patrons of Candyland as well as the female slaves who are forced to be prostitutes.”  This is a different role for Costner as he will be more of the villain than the good guy.  Plus, I think this will re-vitalize Costner’s career in a good way.  I already can’t wait to see this film.

Hi, Bryan Here…

The host of Comedy Central’s ‘Colbert Report’, Stephen Colbert has been a huge fan of J.R.R. Tolkien and his work for a long time.  Colbert has mentioned his fandom about Tolkien’s works on his Comedy Central show for years now.  Well, it looks like Mr. Peter Jackson has made one of his dreams come true.  A source close to the project has confirmed that Jackson has added Mr. Colbert to the film trilogy, however it won’t be the upcoming ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’, which is set to release December 14 of this year.

SHAFT (2019) – Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Oct 21st, 2019

THE FILM


We need more heroes like Shaft. Even if he breaks a few of the rules in order to take out the bad guys, he gets the job done and makes the world a better place, all while having a smile on his face and consistently makes us laugh. Thank you Shaft or shall I thank Samuel L. Jackson who looks like he’s having the time of his life in this film. Either way, this sequel to the 2000 film along with the original Shaft movies from the 1970s is Pitch Perfect Shaft, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Aug 13th, 2019

The culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 is here with Avengers: Endgame. Back in 2008, a few people had a big idea for us comic book fans. That idea started with Iron Man, where at the end of the film, Samuel L. Jackson showed up and wanted to get a team together. That team would be the Avengers, that would go on to team up everyone’s favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, The Wasp, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlett Witch, Vision, The Winter Soldier, and a few others. Spread over the course of ten years, these filmmakers and Marvel Studio execs have crafted an intense storyline that has continued over the last decade with rich and iconic characters that have had their own movies to shine, along with teaming up here and there to take on bigger threats.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.

‘Glass’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Apr 30th, 2019

Finally, we got the conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero opus with Glass, which was the third film in his amazing trilogy that was preceded by Unbreakable and Split. This new film brings back pretty much every single character from each film for the ultimate showdown and twist and Shyamalan did it perfectly. The 1080p HD video is wonderful and the killer Dolby Atmos track is something special. There is a ton of bonus features, but zero commentary tracks. This is a MUST-OWN Blu-ray!

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review!

‘Captain Marvel’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 5th, 2019

 

“Captain Marvel has some major flaws, but the payoff in the end is worth it.”

Coming in as the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is Captain Marvel, which introduces us to a brand new character in the Marvel comic book franchise of movies. We’ve been with these superheroes for more than a decade now in cinema form and it could be quite redundant with another introduction to a new superhero. Captain Marvel has some major flaws, but the payoff in the end is worth it. If you’ve been watching all of the Marvel films, then you would remember the hint at Captain Marvel in the recent Avengers: Infinity War movie during the mid-credit sequence, where Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) is disappearing and he uses a device that looks like a pager from the 1990s to page someone. That someone was Captain Marvel.

Captain Marvel – Film Review #2!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 5th, 2019

“Captain Marvel is perfectly acceptable and definitely worth seeing.”

Captain Marvel is a victim of Marvel’s release schedule. It is a perfectly fine and entertaining entry into the MCU but releasing it six weeks before Avengers: Endgame just can’t help but permeate my review of it. I am here for the end of the Avengers as we know them and while Captain Marvel is good enough, I found myself looking for easter eggs and Avengers tie ins instead of focusing on this story on its own. I assume I won’t be alone in how that taints my review.

‘Glass’ – Film Review!

by Bryan Kluger on Jan 16th, 2019

I genuinely loved every single second of M. Night Shyamalan’s film ‘Glass’. It was the perfect end to a trilogy he started almost 20 years ago with ‘Unbreakable’. Since ‘Unbreakable’ debuted some 19 years ago, we have had a giant influx of superhero films with ‘X-Men’ films, the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, and now the DC Comics franchise of films. I would like to say that this whole comic book craze mostly started with Shyamalan’s ‘Unbreakable’, which was his followup film to his breakout hit ‘The Sixth Sense’. Since then, we’ve come to learn and expect a certain level filmmaking and performances from superhero movies, mostly due to the phenomenal structure and execution of all the Marvel movies. There’s definitely a pattern there and it sticks the landing each and every time.

I’ve got an “INCREDIBLE” update for you!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

The Incredibles‘ are making a comeback and Disney released character portraits in the most trendy, pop culture-ish way possible, as selfies matched with their artistic counter-part. Google’s Arts and Culture app has been the new driving force powering social media and everyone is doing it. I even tried to get a match on my dog, Duke, aka John Wayne, but there’s not recognition for pets, yet. Along with the images of the voice actors, we see stylized artwork of their on-screen persona, and it’s awesome to see anything coming from Disney Pixar about the upcoming sequel. But that’s not all they’ve given us. We get four new images, but we also get some plot details!

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard’!

by Bryan Kluger on Nov 22nd, 2017

THE FILM


On paper, ‘The Hitman’s Bodyguard‘ sounds like a solid gold winner. You have Ryan Reynolds and Samuel L. Jackson in a violent action-comedy with enough “motherfucks” for two films, that is directed by the guy who made ‘The Expendables 3‘ – Patrick Hughes. Those looking for a ‘Deadpool‘ style character from Reynolds will be disappointed, as he’s the straight arrow here, or as straight as Reynolds could possibly be. Samuel L. Jackson on the other hand is amped up to 11, as he plays Kinkaid, an assassin for hire who will testify in a global crime ring against a foreign mad man, played by Gary Oldman, complete with a hard Russian accent.

Hey guys, Jana here,

So we’ve been waiting for what seems like forever to ever get another Incredibles movie and Pixar has finally granted our wish. The film isn’t slated to debut until June 15, 2018 we couldn’t expect much footage to be shared yet. What we do have is a teaser that is less than 60 seconds, but shows us that we’re at the same time-frame the original film ended. Either that or Jack-Jack just isn’t going to age, but John Lasseter revealed that the second film “starts right as the first one finishes, so it just carries on”. Read the rest of this entry »



Hey guys, Jana here,

♪♫Who’s the cat that won’t cop out when there’s danger all about?

(Shaft)

Right on ♪♫

If you were unsure the answer was anything other than “Shaft”, you best be getting yourself a film-education right fast and in a hurry. If you just can’t seem to get that done, Netflix will give you a primer when they reboot the classic 1971 film that was already rebooted once in 2000.

Film Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’!

by Bryan Kluger on Sep 20th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Matthew Vaughn is back in the director’s chair with ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘, the sequel to the hit 2015 action-comedy film that made over $414 million. The ‘Kingsman’ story line was originally written in comic book form from Mark Millar (Kick-Ass) and Dave Gibbons (Watchmen) and follows a super secret British spy service that protects the world from various threats. It’s like James Bond, but more fun, more violent, and with more laughs. With sequels, especially in the action world, the words “bigger, better, faster” are usually used everyday on set, in an attempt to out-do the previous movie. That can mostly be said for this sequel too, but with The Golden Circle – – it all works.

4K UHD Reivew: Kong: Skull Island!

by Bryan Kluger on Jul 17th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

We’ve seen a ton of versions of ‘King Kong‘ over the decades from the 1933 version to the Jeff Bridges version in the 1970s, and even more recently, the 2005 version that was directed by ‘Lord of the Rings‘ director Peter Jackson. ‘King Kong‘ has been a staple in entertainment and pop culture since he debuted in the early 30s and he is showing no signs of stopping, thanks to Warner Bros.and Legendary Pictures who are taking their cues from Marvel and creating their own universe called the ‘MonsterVerse‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

cb941c80-df09-11e6-8dc8-1fe8c8155e51_unbreakable-split

M. Night Shyamalan was the next greatest filmmaker in the world. With films like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs – the talented filmmaker was set to be the next Spielberg, Lucas, Scorsese, Hitchcock, and Gilliam combined into one person. It was working for him. Then, Shyamalan went on a “bender” and made a ton of shitty films, but I do believe this was a case of Hollywood taking control and not letting him do anything creative.

Film Review #2: ‘Kong: Skull Island’!

by Bryan Kluger on Mar 12th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Bad news. Kong: Skull Island isn’t a good movie, but it isn’t a bad one either. It exists in that awful “shrug” territory “Why?” or “I guess that works.”

Lets break it down!
