Get on the Stick with ‘Jessica Jones’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 1st, 2016

Wade D., Here…

maxresdefault

Hey everyone! So it may have started as a PG­13 movie between us here at Get on the Stick and you, the beautiful reader… but since this is our fourth encounter, it’s time to seal the deal and turn this flick into a XXX extravaganza! Much like A New Hope, this episode 4 is going to be a fan favorite, and as always, will be spoiler free. Finish polishing those lightsabers, pop the corn, dim the lights, and let’s ‘watch Netflix’. The term “Get on the Stick” is all about getting to work, so no more blather… Let’s get to it!

Get on the Stick with ‘Mr. Robot’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 18th, 2016

Wade D., Here…

mr-robot

Hey there party goers! So it seems that us folks here at Get on the Stick are becoming quite the sensation! As a reminder, we bat cleanup and cover those things Boomstick just hasn’t given enough love to. Says who? Fair enough, just remember that this is a safe space, and strives to be spoiler free. So grab your trusty towel and DON’T PANIC, because we are simply here to amuse. If you feel like you may be in the early stages of hyperventilating… sit down and take a few deep breaths and keep reminding yourself that you are on a rock hurtling through the vast emptiness of space orbiting the sun at over 66,000 mph. The term “Get on the Stick” is all about getting to work, so no more blather… Let’s get to it!

Get on the Stick with ‘The Flash’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 12th, 2016

Wade D., Here…

Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 8.23.01 AM

Hey everyone! So it seems like my first iteration wasn’t a total failure, because I got another chance to Get on the Stick. Just in case you missed Episode 1, here we are trying to apprise you to some sort of greatness that Boomstick just hasn’t touched on enough. So the goal here is to enlighten, entertain, and perhaps titillate you in a way that hasn’t been done quite yet. If you feel like you may be getting over titillated… turn off that Misty Mundae flick (with this crowd I’m guessing it’s either SpiderBabe or Lord of the G-­Strings) and start rambling off batting orders from 1970’s MLB teams. We’ll do our best to keep spoilers at a minimum, so relax. The term “Get on the Stick” is all about getting to work, so no more blather… Let’s get to it!

Hi, Bryan Here….

I recently sat down with the talented and charismatic actor/director/writer/producer, Blayne Weaver at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas. (Sorry about the noisy background.)  We talked about his latest film, ‘The 6 Month Rule‘, Peter Pan (Weaver is the voice of Disney’s Peter Pan), Superman, and much more in this great 25 minute interview.  The ‘6 Month Rule’ is much like the film ‘Swingers’, but for a new generation.  Its romantic comedy plot line strayed from the rest and showed me something a little different than I’m used to.  It was a delight to watch.  Twice.  If ‘The 6 Month Rule is playing near you, go see it.  I think you’ll have fun with the film.  Find out more info by going to their website HERE.  Enjoy the interview.

Hi, Drew here.

I had the opportunity to speak briefly with the legendary Bernie Wrightson at Sci-Fi Expo 2012.  Wrightson is truly a master of his craft.  His line work is incredible and proof is in the pages including his work for Creepy, Heavy Metal, being co-creator/artist of Swamp Thing, and his more recent work with writer Steve Niles including “The Ghoul”, “Dead, She Said”, and Doc Macabre.  The three works with Steve Niles can all be found in separate color volumes or altogether in one beautiful over-sized black and white hardcover which really shows Wrightson’s amazing pencil and inking skills.  I asked Wrightson how he met Steve Niles to create this long-lasting creator relationship and he said that he in fact met Niles at a convention in Dallas!

Blu-ray Review: ‘Escape From New York’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

914KrCeSqeL._SL1500_

THE FILM

John Carpenter’sEscape From New York‘ came out in 1981. I was born in 1981. This is not a coincidence. Ever since my dad showed me ‘Escape From New York‘, I wanted to don an eye patch, stick it to authority, and save the human race, just like Plissken does, but I knew I’d never be as cool as Plissken ever was.

Film Review: ‘Black Sea’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

4075_D022_00093_R.jpg

Jude Law in a submarine movie, you say? Why yes please. I had only hoped that we would get Jude Law playing ‘Dom Hemingway‘ again here, talking about his private parts in such a way that it seems poetic, but unfortunately that’s not the case with his character or this film, titled ‘Black Sea‘. Director Kevin Macdonald has an impressive resume for sure, with films like ‘Marley‘ and ‘The Last King of Scotland‘ under his belt. Where those award winning films might have shown us something more on a serious level whether it be about a historical figure or brilliant musician, ‘Black Sea‘ tends to journey into the ludicrous realm on am adult ‘Hardy Boys‘ type of quest.

‘Glass’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 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.

‘Pledge’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2019

Not to be confused with the Jack Nicholson vehicle ‘The Pledge’, the filmmakers dropped the “the” and is simply ‘Pledge‘, which is by far the best horror/thriller this year. It will be tough to find a genre movie in 2019 that is this fast-paced, fun, and not afraid to get sticky. There are no sidebars or long tangents going on in this film, as it’s straight and to the point and has the action and terror from the very beginning in this ‘Hostel‘ meets ‘The Skulls‘ story line. In fact, I would imagine the same people that attend the ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘ party for Stanley Kubrick started out in this fraternity that is portrayed here.

’10 to Midnight’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Get your B-Movie nudity excitement ready, because the 1983 horror film ‘10 to Midnight‘ is back with an all new 4K transfer on Scream Factory Blu-ray glory. J. Lee Thompson (Cape Fear) directed this film with a script from William Roberts (The Magnificent Seven) about a serial killer who kills naked women. Well that’s how it sounds on paper, but there’s more to this story, along with a cast of Charles Bronson, a young Kelly Preston, Ola Ray from the Michael Jackson Thriller video, and the diabeetus man himself Wilford Brimley as a police captain. I mean, it doesn’t get any better than that does it?

‘Obsession’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Back in 1976, director Brian De Palma (Scarface) and writer Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) collaborated on a movie titled ‘Obsession‘. It was their tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’sVertigo‘ and starred Cliff Robertson and John Lithgow. The film touches on a few taboo subjects, but is nowhere near as violent as the previous mentioned films. ‘Obsession‘ is actually quite a masterpiece of the late 1970s that features a very melodramatic and thrilling story that takes you on a terrifying journey of a man who is still grieving his deceased wife and daughter.

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 »

Dan Moran’s Top Films of 2018 and his Award Nominations!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2018

This year I saw 102 new movies in 2018. That number is actual movies released in 2018. I count Netflix and streaming movies released this year because that is where we are heading but the majority of the 102 was in movie theaters. I decided not to rank my top movies this year because at the end of the day the difference between #10 thru #3 is usually based on my mood when I write the list. So I just put my top movies in ABC order.

My Favorite Movies Released in 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2018

The year of 2018 has come to a close and over the past 365 days, I’ve seen roughly 175 new films that were released.  I had a ton of fun watching each and every single one of them, even if I came out sour towards a film. There were a ton of great films this year that ranged from big action blockbusters, emotional indie dramas, scary-as-hell films that still haunt me, and some laugh out loud movies that always put me in the right mood. I’d chalk 2018 as a winner in the movie business, because there are some films that came out that I will truly cherish for a long time to come.

Holiday Movie Round-Up 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2018

Holmes & Watson

 

First movie I have walked out of by choice in years. What a steaming pile of crap. I knew it was bad going in, considering they didn’t even try to promote it in any way, shape, or form. There was only one trailer I’m aware of and the same TV spot played occasionally during sporting events. When a studio has a comedy they believe will be successful coming out on Christmas they promote the hell out of it. I wish they buried this one even deeper than they did. I didn’t walk out to make some high brow “cool guy” statement.

‘On the Basis of Sex’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2018

On the Basis of Sex proves that a mediocre film can still shine when you’re crazy about the subject. People can’t get enough of Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG) these days. On the Basis of Sex follows on the heels of the RBG documentary that had everyone going gaga over the matron justice and while I enjoyed this film it just isn’t the same with a stand in. The movie covers roughly twenty years of her life, from college to just after her first big case, so the feel is completely different than the whirlwind of the documentary that covered it all, but the real shift is that it’s a big picture flick with big time actors and the whole thing feels rather campy at times.

‘Bumblebee: Film Review!!

by Janet White on Dec 22nd, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

B-127 is a film that is centered on one of the most beloved Transformers. Most people love Optimus Prime and a few “special” people love Megatron, however, B-127 is cooler than them both without question. B-127…you know whom that is, right? Bumblebee formerly known B-127 was sent to Earth under the order of Optimus Prime as its protector. Bumblebee landed on Earth and immediately into battle as well. A Decepticon pounced on Bumblebee and robbed him of his voice communications module. One additional hardship befalls Bumblebee as his memory is corrupted and amnesia weighs him down to an infant child. Plot sound familiar? Read the rest of this entry »

Mary Poppins Returns: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2018

 

Practically perfect in every way. It describes the nanny known as Mary Poppins, as well as the film that brings her back into the lives of the young and young at heart. Mary Poppins Returns is hitting theaters more than fifty years after Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke made the film a smashing success. This sequel brings a new Mary to life with Emily Blunt as Poppins and Lin Manuel Miranda as her lamplighter sidekick. It’s different, but it doesn’t stray, and it certainly will have audiences smiling, singing, and raving about the delightful nanny’s return.

I’m going to stand out here and yell it. I believe Stanley Kubrick’s 1968 film ‘2001 A Space Odyssey‘ is one of the greatest if not THE GREATEST movie of all time. I mean it doesn’t hold a candle to ‘Army of Darkness‘, because that’s in its own category of greatness, but for all other films, ‘2001 A Space Odyssey‘ is right at the top of the list. Kubrick was known for making movies in different genres, time periods, and subject matters. He never did the same thing twice. With ‘2001‘, he went to the past and jumped right into the future with perhaps the biggest time jump out of any piece of cinema.

Lucio Fulci’s ‘ZOMBI’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 12th, 2018

Right after George Romero made his opus ‘Dawn of the Dead’ in 1978, the Italians wanted to make a sequel to it. Since Dario Argento (an Italian filmmaker) edited the original ‘Dawn of the Dead‘, they took the liberty to make a sequel with first time director Lucio Fulci and call it ‘Zombi‘ or ‘Zombi 2‘ depending on what part of the world you’re in. The result was nothing short of spectacular and has become one of the most beloved zombie movies ever made. The atmosphere, practical makeup effects, and story are incredible.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider Verse’ Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2018

Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is back, but this time he has a fellowship of web-warriors from other dimensions to save the day. In a market currently flooded with Marvel, one might scoff at the idea that ‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse‘ has anything new to offer, but prepare for a fresh spin on this radioactive world. This ‘Spider-Man‘ is hilarious, bold and inclusive. It not only reflects diversity in its artistic approach, but also in its cast of characters – and above anything else, the animation is absolutely unparalleled!

‘Widows’: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 26th, 2018

Widows holds itself out as a female heist movie, somewhat in the vein of Ocean’s 8, but from start to finish it delivers a lot more punches. This is not a fun and fancy-free flick, and it definitely is more intense than the previews lead you to believe, so if you are looking for Ocean’s 8, go see Ocean’s 8. This film is dark, deep and twisty. What it does represent correctly from the outset is that Viola Davis is the baddest B around, and this lead role was made for her. Likewise, the rest of the cast seems to have been picked perfectly and shines in roles seemingly written for them.

‘Green Book’ Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2018

Green Book is a dramedy based on the real-life friendship between the most unusual of friends. Donald Shirley (Mahershala Ali), of The Don Shirley Trio, and “Tony Lip” Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), a bouncer from the Copa, embark on a concert tour through the South with Vallelonga as Shirley’s driver. The name of the film is taken from the pamphlet that was published during the 1960s that informed black people of establishments that were safe for them to stay in, eat at, or stop at while traveling. That was a foreign concept to me, as well as Vallelonga in the movie, as the only time Green Book is explained is when he is made aware that there will be times the two can’t stay at the same hotels and he is provided with the book.

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!!!

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

In the game of chess, there are rules. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, the brainchild of Stieg Larsson, has wowed and shocked audiences since 2009 when the novel and the Swedish version of the film of the same name were released. The heroine of these provocative tales, Lisbeth Salander, is a genius level conqueror/hacker with who fights injustice. In The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Salander (now portrayed by Claire Foy of the Netflix hit, The Crown, a huge mistake in my opinion) has taken vigilantism to a new level. Do not mess with this chick.

‘Siberia’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2018

Keanu Reeves is one of the most fun and best actors around. We all love him in a variety of films and we can’t wait until the next installments of ‘John Wick‘ and ‘Bill and Ted‘. In between these films, it’s really hit or miss with the movies Keanu chooses, but one thing is and will always be true – Keanu Reeves is a badass and a great actor. So ‘Siberia‘ is his most recent film that probably took a couple of weeks to shoot and I’ll compare it to Leo DiCaprio’s ‘Blood Diamond’ movie because it has Keanu Reeves in the diamond business under shady and dangerous conditions.

‘Transporter 3’ 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2018

Has there really been three ‘Transporter‘ movies? Well yes, there has and the third and final one came out ten years ago in 2008. What is a ‘Transporter‘ anyway? It’s someone who is hired to deliver a package or person, mostly in dangerous situations. Jason Statham is the Transporter for all three films, which was conjured up by Luc Besson (The Fifth Element) and the last two films directed by Olivier Megaton (Taken 2 and 3). It’s business as usual with this third film as Jason Statham is a Transporter headed to Russia with some nasty Russians on his tail.

‘Uncle Drew’ 4K UHD Review!

With a quick glance at the poster or film, you’d think this is just another one of the 100s of Tyler Perry films where someone dresses up as an elderly person and comedy ensues. That’s not the case with ‘Uncle Drew‘ though. Shock and awe for sure. If you’re unfamiliar with ‘Uncle Drew’, this idea came from a Pepsi commercial where a big basketball star dressed like an old man and show up the young kids on the court.

‘Ocean’s 8’ 4K UHD Review!

At some point recently, Hollywood decided to start remaking movies that came out not too long ago with all-female casts for the sake of just being all-female casts. It never goes over well, at least thus far. The most recent terrible remake was ‘Ocean’s 8‘, a remake of the ‘Ocean‘ trilogy that starred George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Matt Damon amongst others.

The third and final installment (thus far) in the ‘Re-Animator‘ film franchise comes ‘Beyond Re-Animator‘ from 2003 and directed by Brian Yuzna who was a producer on the original ‘Re-Animator‘ movie. This third film is a ton of fun and still packs the insane amount of gore these films are known for. Set about a decade after the first film, it follows our favorite doctor (played by Jeffrey Combs) who is in prison now and still trying to perfect his experiment of bringing the dead back to life as we’ve seen in the previous movies.

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2018

There isn’t a horror film like this out there – past, present, or future. This film ‘Dagon‘ is so off-the-wall that it has to be seen to be believed. Directed by Stuart Gordon (‘Re-Animator’) in 2001, ‘Dagon‘ follows two couples who are vacationing off the coast of Europe. At one point during this vacation, one of them sees a mermaid or so he thinks. Soon enough there is a big storm and crashes their boat. One of the couples heads off to get help at a local village to save their friends. Sounds easy and pleasant enough, right? WRONG! Turns out this village is inhabited by some evil fish people all led by a mutant fish monster who must have blood sacrifices.

Larry Cohen is one of those old-school filmmakers that has been around a long time and is universally loved in the business. Cohen is mostly known for his B-movie films and having a penchant for not taking “no” for an answer. His filmmaking methods are pioneering and risky, but all have been a big success in their own way. Over the past few decades, Choen has amassed a ton of great friendships with other filmmakers, who all talk about Cohen her in this documentary called ‘King Cohen‘.

Film Review: ‘[Bad Times at the El Royale]’!!

by Janet White on Oct 15th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Slam, shuffle, shuffle, creak, shuffle, and plop. Bad Times at the El Royale skillfully opens with a sensory experience and a blank screen effectively peaking audience’s curiosity (Good job Sound team!). Felix (Nick Offerman) frantically hid a secret and, as expected, was murdered. Fast-forward roughly 15 years; Darlene Sweet (Cynthia Erivo) and Father Daniel Flynn (Jeff Bridges) meet literally on the state line between Nevada and California, which is straddled by the El Royale. The meeting was apprehensive yet playful. Rounding out the known inhabitants of the hotel are Laramie Seymour Sullivan (Jon Hamm), a traveling vacuum salesman; Miles Miller (Lewis Pullman), the front desk clerk; and Emily Summerspring (Dakota Johnson), a mysterious wildcat with sharp claws. Everyone in burdened by a secret, which adds to the mysterious, dangerous air of the El Royale. Soon they will find out what lurks within its walls. Read the rest of this entry »

‘The Evil Dead’ 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

Perhaps the best horror film of all time and most certainly the most magnificent cult film of all time that gave us Bruce Campbell and Sam Raimi to the world – ‘The Evil Dead‘ from 1981 is truly an extraordinary movie. This super low budget film with tons of gore spawned two sequels, a remake, and even a very successful 3-season tv series on Starz, not to mention countless toys, comics, and video games based off the film. Sam Raimi was just in his 20s when he made this movie with his family and friends, all shot on location in the middle of the woods, much to the chagrin of the actors. They powered through it and it became a huge success with big financing for a movie of this caliber and a winning review from the horror master himself Stephen King.

‘Strait-Jacket’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

William Castle is at it again here with the fun murderous mom movie ‘Straight-Jacket‘ from 1964. Yes, that William Castle who brought the gimmicky movies like ‘The Tingler‘, ‘13 Ghosts‘, and ‘House on Haunted Hill‘. Joan Crawford stars in this film, which came out after her resurgence from ‘What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?‘. She went on to star in very similar roles, but with ‘Straight-Jacket‘, she stars as an ax-wielding murderer – mostly. Of course, production on this film was tense, to say the least, due to Crawford’s presence and diva-like personality. She even got some people fired from the set, but I guess that was the case if you were going to hire Crawford.

‘First Man’ Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

Director Damien Chazelle has boldly departed from his usual song and dance (‘Whiplash’, ‘La La Land’) for a character study about one of America’s most famous, but equally mysterious heroes: Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling). It’s rare to find an individual that hasn’t heard of the moon landing, but ask them about Neil himself? That’s a different story. ‘First Man’ tries to peek behind the helmet into the private life of Apollo 11’s commanding astronaut, but what we ultimately discover about this rocket man is far less interesting than the mission itself. Despite Chazelle’s dedication to his goal, the outcome is a confusingly toned, disconnected and unrevealing biopic that never quite makes a solid landing.

‘First Man’ Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 10th, 2018

Anytime I see a movie about space the technology seems effortless. Even in space disaster movies, the main character is one button or airlock away from safety. The technology and engineering are always #15 on the list of most movies set in space. Even movies like Apollo 13 romanticize space travel to a large degree and gloss over the real work it takes to even get up there. First Man takes a different approach to launch humans into space by making every single aspect of the space program of the 60s be, frankly, terrifying.

‘A Star Is Born’ Dissection!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2018

I lack the energy and patience to really give a deep dive into A Star is Born. I think the movie is a glorious mess. The first hour is fantastic and then it really loses focus on what it wants to say/do/or be and so it throws a ton of things at the wall before catering to the “This is Us-ification” of current storytelling to force tears from the crowd.

 

All I wanted to do here is dissect why the most beautiful moment of the movie earned everyone involved their inevitable nominations. I’m not sure anyone will talk about A Star is Born two years from now unless they are directly referencing this scene.

‘The Curse of the Cat People’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2018

The Cat People‘ really thrilled people back in 1942, so in 1944, they made a sequel called ‘The Curse of the Cat People‘. It was all marketing though as ‘Curse‘ barely had anything to do with the original film, besides some of the same characters and actors. Notably, the filmmaker Ray Wise made this movie. Who is Ray Wise you ask? Holy Shit, I’ll tell you. He directed ‘West Side Story‘, ‘The Sound of Music‘, and even edited ‘Citizen Kane‘ to name a few projects he’s worked on. Not exactly a light-weight.
