‘The Mule’ – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2019

THE FILM

For the first time in more than a decade, Clint Eastwood is back starring in his own directorial effort called ‘The Mule‘, which is based on a true story about a man named Leo Sharp, who was a down-on-his luck elder man who became a very successful drug runner for the Mexican cartel. It’s a rather interesting story that had some trouble being made into a film. At one point, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) was attached to write and direct the film, but over the course of a year or so – Clint Eastwood became involved and the rest is history. Fletcher is still credited as Executive Producer here. Eastwood tells this story with a very subtle sense of suspense. There was never any point where I felt his character was in danger or something bad was going to happen. It’s the opposite of something like ‘Breaking Bad‘ in the suspense department. Still, there is an elegant quality to Eastwood’s filmmaking that makes this story worth your while.

Fantastic Fest is one of the events that is pure bliss for any fan of genre cinema. If you love horror, sci-fi, foreign, action, and even adult-oriented movies from the 1970s, then Fantastic Fest is the place to let that freak flag fly high and be with like-minded individuals that truly appreciate the art of movies. All of the madness and fun will take place in Austin, TX starting on September 20th and run for 10 days at the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar St. This year, which is the 14th annual festival of Fantastic-ness, captures the essence of the Korean movie scene with a ton of cool films being showcased from Korea, both new and old. This is something you won’t want to miss.

 

 

The first wave of movies has been announced, including the World Premiere of the WWII horror movie called ‘OVERLORD‘ from J.J. Abrams. In addition to that film, Fantastic Fest will host Gareth Evans‘ horror movie ‘APOSTLE‘. Gareth gave us the amazing films ‘THE RAID‘ AND ‘THE RAID 2‘, so you can expect some insane fight scenes and horrific imagery. Alos, a film called ‘THE NIGHT COMES FOR US‘, which stars the badass from those ‘RAID‘ movies will be shown, meaning Iko Uwais will stun us once again with his amazing physical skills. If you were a fan of ‘THE GREASY STRANGLER‘, the director of that movie Jim Hosking has a new film called ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘, which is being described as a David Lynch meets John Waters type of movie. You had me at Greasy Strangler.

 

 

Lastly, there are some vintage films coming through from AGFA (American Genre Film Archive), one of which has peaked my interest from the title alone – ‘MARY JANE’S NOT A VIRGIN ANYMORE‘. I have high hopes for this one. Below is the list of films with cast and crew info, along with a brief synopsis. Enjoy and hope to see you all there.

Series Review: ‘Ducktales: Destination Adventure’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 9th, 2018

A ton of us grew up on ‘Ducktales‘ back in the 1980s and 1990s. We can even sing the theme song by heart with that famous “WOO-OOO”, which always brings a smile to my face. It seemed like ‘Ducktales‘ was only set for re-runs, but lucky for us, Disney revived the hit animated TV show and now we have new episodes featuring some of our favorite duck characters. We now have a new DVD titled ‘Ducktales: Destination Adventure!‘, which features six episodes of the new series, along with two classic episodes from the original tv show. Now that’s fantastic.

Film Review: Home Again!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Since their resurrection in the late 20th century, romantic comedies began digging their heels into the film industry and eventually gained permanent footing with audiences. By definition, rom-coms have amusing and sprightly plot-lines, circling around the ideal that true love can overcome any hitch, and women are simply helpless without their male counterparts. However, the genre has started morphing into something different lately; women are taking the leading role as well as the director’s chair. Despite all appearances, ‘Home Again’ announces that romance doesn’t have to take center stage, and women can be multi-dimensional, driven and even find happiness despite their losses in love.

Since 1987, ‘Dirty Dancing‘, which was made on a $6 million budget, has grossed over $214 million and has spawned numerous spin offs, sequels, and even a stager version of the film.

The ‘Powerman 5000’ Experience!

Good Day everybody, and so here begins my foray into writing for local music events.  I have been endeavoring to insert myself into the local music crowd in the Dallas/Fort Worth area for what feels like ages.  I’m not sure how it’s going, but it doesn’t really matter.  I have my own aspirations, but when I got to local music events it’s because I truly appreciate the music scene and those that are fighting every day to keep it alive… on the plus side… I get to see bands that I have just been dying to see for what also feels like a very long time.  This past Saturday, April 16 of the year 2016, I finally got to see Powerman 5000 and a few other local bands that are really kicking ass right now; but I’ll get to that in a minute.

Celebrate your July 4th Holiday with these Films!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 3rd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

the-sandlot-20th-anniversary-1157_rgb

In the midst of family and friend get-togethers, 37 pounds of BBQ spare ribs, ten gallons of creamy cool coleslaw, floating in a pool, and setting off fireworks, while listening to Neil Diamond’s ‘America’, I also like to enjoy “that one night game a year”, meaning I love to watch July 4th inspired films. I usually do a mini movie marathon of them with the usual food and beverages that go with each film. I’ve done this the past few years, with one year, taking a break to do an all John Carpenter/Kurt Russell marathon. That was a lot of fun. But, for those of you who want to enjoy a movie or three over the holiday weekend, but keep with the spirit of the 4th of July, here are a few suggestions to keep you patriotic.

Film Review: ‘Felt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 25th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

felt2

Rape. Rape is a terrible word, a terrible concept, a terrible experience. Just talking about it can make people of all walks of life extremely uncomfortable. It is shown in films to paint antagonists in the most horrible of lights. So, it comes as no surprise that an entire film devoted to the emotional and mental effects of the victim is, to put it lightly, difficult to watch. As it turns out, it is equally as difficult to film. What should be a poignant and gripping tale of life after, turns into a horrible (emphasis on the horror) and jumbled mess of a film trapped in itself.

Film Review: ‘The Vatican Tapes’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 19th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

maxresdefault

It is easy to take a film or genre that has met with success and copy the ever-loving crap out of it. In fact, Hollywood has been doing just that for years. You can’t tell me that you haven’t noticed the barrage of sequels, reboots, and remakes that have saturated the market over the last several decades! It’s much more difficult (also costly) to create something brand new and refreshing. The Vatican Tapes is another in a long line of exorcism films hoping to cash in on the success of The Exorcist and the like.

Hey guys, Jana here,

HYOM_Wall_WEBSITE

I knew nothing about this film other than the title but that was enough for me to watch it and I’m beyond happy I gave it a shot. ‘The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out The Window and Disappeared‘ is definitely a mouthful for a title, but it stands out. The film is an adaptation of the novel of the same name by Jonas Jonasson and has become the third highest grossing Swedish film of all time with good reason. Directed by Felix Herngren and starring Robert Gustafsson who, in his own right, is a gifted writer, actor and director of Swedish media, he shares the screen with the acting legends Iwar Wiklander, David Wiberg, Mia Skaringer and Jens Hulten.
