Dan’s Review of ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 8th, 2018

I am not a huge fan of scary movies. I’ll see them, but they are definitely very low on my overall ‘Genre I Enjoy’ list. That said, I always appreciate a really well done horror film and ‘A Quiet Place‘ is exactly that. It is one of the most suspenseful and intense movies I have seen in a few years. The awful situations this family finds themselves in naturally grow to such a climax that it is one of the few movies where I can say I was on the edge of my seat.  On the surface, it is just a terrifying creature feature where noise is the enemy, but if you look a little deeper, it is quite simply the most terrifying movie about being a parent ever made.

4K UHD Review: ‘Jigsaw’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2018

THE FILM


Wait, what? He’s back? He’s really back with his infamous contraptions that kill people? Of course he’s back, even after a seven year hiatus, which was the last time we watched the Saw franchise on the big screen. Jigsaw marks the 8th film in the series since 2004 and with an eight film combined budget of $77 million, the box office gross of all eight films is a hair-line under $1 billion. So if you think there will be more Saw films with more Tobin Bell, the answer is a hard “yes”. The Spierig Bros. (Undead, Predestination, Daybreakers) are in the director chairs this time around as they put Jigsaw/John Cramer (Bell) in the center of the story.

‘Jigsaw’ Is Coming to 4K UHD!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

 

Nothing is over when it comes to the ‘Saw‘ franchise and Jigsaw. The new installment in that horror series, simply titled ‘Jigsaw‘ is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on January 23rd. You’ll be able to watch it digitally as early as January 9th. They brothers who made the zombie film ‘Undead‘ and the vampire film ‘Daybreakers‘ sat in the director’s chair this time around with more insane bloody traps and more twists and turns than ever before. There are tons of extras, including audio commentary and behind the scenes featurettes. There is also a Dolby Atmos audio track, which I hope is demo worthy. To hear blood and guts fall from the ceiling could be super awesome. More details below.

Film Review: ‘Roman J. Israel Esq.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2017

Roman J. Israel, Esq. won’t be a box office hit, and if you aren’t black or a lawyer or somewhere in that venn-diagram, you probably aren’t wanting to go see it. But you should. If you’ve ever had a forgotten dream, no matter what your profession is or the color of your skin, you will identify with Roman. It’s uncomfortable to watch, it’s heartbreaking at times, but there’s laughter and Denzel Washington. Denzel is superb.  And honestly, Collin Farrell has redeemed himself in my eyes from The Lobster, so there’s really no reason to cast this one aside.

Film Review: ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Yorgos Lanthimos will hopefully be a household name in the coming years. The filmmaker just has an uncanny knack for the uncomfortable and weird while telling very compelling and twisted stories that will no doubt entertain us and make us think about it long after viewing his work. Coming off of films like ‘The Lobster‘ and ‘Dogtooth‘, the Greek filmmaker unleashes his best film to date with ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘, which could be Stanley Kubrick’s ‘Eyes Wide Shut’s‘ sibling in both style and tone.

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was born in Massachusetts (moved in middle school) love all the sports teams and have close to 40 families members in and around the outskirts of Boston. The only reason I disclose this is because I watched the news closely during this whole ordeal, read two books on the events/survivors, and caught the excellent HBO doc that premiered late last year. I’m not an expert on the event but I feel like I know a bit more than a casual viewer. Most importantly I wasn’t there. I don’t know anyone who was lost. I can’t imagine what it is like to see a tragic event in your life monetized into a film so I am reviewing this strictly as a fan of movies and how it was portrayed as a movie. The politics, timing, and ramifications of turning events like this into films are for others to debate.

Hello ladies! Look at your man, now back to me – whoops, sorry about that. As you know, it’s Valentine’s Day once again. And as this overly-commercialized excuse for a holiday rears its ugly head, we take a reflective look back at our lives and at the choices we’ve made concerning our relationships. Some of you will realize that maybe the gap-toothed ex-con biker named “Bubba” might not have been the best choice for a mate (“but he’s a real sweetheart once you get to know him!”). Unfortunately, now you’re “in like Flynn” with his whole clique, and before you know it, you’re drinking homemade moonshine with the rest of his recently released buddies in the middle of backwoods nowhere (if you hear banjos – run). That isn’t to say that everyone makes bad decisions. Some women seem to have a gift for finding the right people to surround themselves with – or have a real knack for how to handle the bad apples that come along – and that can make all the difference between a smooth sailing adventure and a total train wreck experience.

Film Review: ‘Fed Up’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

original

Katie Couric, as producer and narrator, presents a film which began as individual news stories; the stories slowly developed into a fascinating look into the state of American food production, consumption, and its results on the health of our citizens. This documentary, directed by Stephanie Soechtig, takes an in depth looks at various issues of our state of nutrition and the American epidemic of obesity.  The film’s major focus is on our dependence on processed foods and the political movements that have created our nutritional environment today.

Sharknado

We already know that there was going to be a ‘Sharknado‘ sequel, and that the execs in charge of the film went to Twitter to come up with a title for the second film. Now we have ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One‘, and moves the location from Los Angeles to New York. But now it has its perfect cast, which is all new.

Kim L., Here….

The To Do List‘ is very funny and the trailers do not do it justice.  I was pleasantly surprised by how much I laughed out loud. The film is set in 1993 and follows a recent high school graduate, Brandy Klark played by Aubrey Plaza, who wants to be more experienced sexually before going off to college.  She makes a “To Do List” or as I like to call it a “Sexual Bucket List”.

DIFF Film Review: ‘Jump’!!

Hi, Bryan Here….

pr36697-2-jump-directed-by-kieron-j-walsh

Hailing from Ireland, Kieron J. Walsh’sJump‘ is a dark and twisted tale with elements of comedy that will attract the indie-film crowd at first glance, but loses its appeal very fast. You can tell that Walsh has a passion for the movie business and a true love of cinema, as he pays homage to several styles of filmmaking throughout the picture, however the several different story lines that intersect in a ‘Pulp Fiction‘ like way do not have enough time on screen for anyone to develop a relationship with the characters.

Lisa S. Here….

While compiling this list, I realized there was no way I could choose only 10 of the best horror soundtracks. So, because I thrive on being different, I am very pleased to bring you 13 of the choicest, rarest, and most kick ass horror soundtracks that I know of. Every one of the following are so good, it was really difficult to rate them from best to bestest.  Each and every one of these titles hails from the very late 70’s thru the 80’s…how incredibly biased of me.

I hope you enjoy it.

BRIDGE – Chapter Nineteen

by Justin Cline on Apr 25th, 2012

CHAPTER NINETEEN

By the eighth Mississippi, Bridge had his map back in hand and a good idea of where he was headed.  It must have been a long walk from the cemetery to The Bethany for a man who’d been forced to vacate his own grave, but in the van it was a short ride from their current location to the outskirts of the city.  The hope in making the trip was to find something—anything—at the gravesite that would point him forward in the investigation.  Between himself and the cat, they had killed off all other viable leads.

Sirens wailed in the distance.  Someone must have called the cops.  There were numerous apartment buildings along this street, all of which would have a perfect view of the goings-on below.  Had they simply heard a commotion or witnessed actual bloodshed?  The results were the same either way.  Bridge intended to be long gone by the time the first squad car arrived on the scene.  He wasn’t one for answering questions, especially when the first question asked would be How did this guy happen to lose his skeleton?

‘US’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2019

“‘US‘ is a true masterpiece in horror.”

The horror genre is something sacred and entertaining. It can be whatever you’d like it to be from something of a masked killer on the loose slashing their way through unsuspecting teenage victims to a literal hell unleashing in space to something much more quiet and unnerving like family being torn apart by a demonic entity and everything in between. Jordan Peele has crafted his own horror universe and elements and is 2/2 (so far) in drilling the nail into that horror membrane with precision and accuracy. His latest film simply titled ‘US‘ is much more than a straight out horror film, but something that makes us think about our past, present and ultimate future with each other. I’m happy to say that ‘US‘ is a true masterpiece in horror.

‘Captain Marvel’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 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.

Holiday Movie Round-Up 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.

‘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.

‘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.

Film Review: ‘Never Goin’ Back’!!

by Janet White on Aug 10th, 2018

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A friend is there through thick and thin. Right there, to draw a penis on your face while you are fast asleep. That is the opening scene of the hilarious adventures of Angela (Maia Mitchell) and Jessie (Camila Morrone) two young waitresses trying to make a way. Never Goin’ Back is based on the true story of its creator and director, Augustine Frizzell. I had the privilege of interviewing Frizzell (more on that awesome experience later), but first here are some reasons to watch this arduous girl power film. Angela and Jessie are high school dropouts that share a house with Jessie’s special in the head brother, Dustin (Joel Allen). On the eve of Jessie’s 17th birthday, Angela comes up with the perfect gift for her dearest friend. The gift sets into motion a trail of calamitous events, drugs, innuendos, and literally a holy crap moment.

Theatre Review: ‘The Lion King’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 16th, 2018

Ever since ‘The Lion King’ (1994 film) debuted in movie theaters, the musical’s popularity has conquered more than just that box office. Only third in line to the thrown of Disney’s top-grossing films, it was inevitable that this animated picture would be adapted into a stage production. Satisfying the lingering hunger of audiences, ‘The Lion King’ (1997 musical) is not only Broadway’s third longest-running show, but it surpassed the film’s success as Broadway’s top-grossing musical ever. Combined with phenomenal puppetry, vibrant costumes, a sensational set design and a disreputably epic soundtrack, it’s easy to see why ‘The Lion King’ has been crowned the best. Be prepared for a royal experience—this interactive musical will pounce on your emotions and leave your heart roaring with excitement!

Film Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2018

Disney is on a roll these days with their recent ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. Not only do we have the new Episodes, but we are getting spin-off movies that focus on a singular story from the past or a certain character. One character that we all have loved from the original trilogy, but don’t know a great deal about is Han Solo. Sure, we know he was a smuggler, is an anti-hero, loved the princess, and helped save the Galaxy with his wookie partner Chewbacca, as they flew from planet to planet on the iconic Millennium Falcon. Through the original trilogy, we heard small lines of dialogue that gave us the tiniest glimpse at his background and life before he met Obi-Wan and Luke. Fortunately, we now have ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ to answer all of those questions for us.

Blu-ray Review: Black Panther!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

THE FILM


Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

National Lampoon’s Van Wilder‘ came out sixteen years ago and more or less re-lit the fire for National Lampoon. This also paved the way for Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds, as this was his first feature film in a leading role. Some of the jokes don’t hit too well in our current politically correct culture, but it’s silly enough to have fun with it. It’s just unfortunate that the filmmakers went the gross-out humor route solely and failed to develop these good characters, but that seemed to be the case in 2002. Also, it’s unfortunate that this is not a new remaster or transfer. This is the same video and audio presentations from the 2007 Blu-ray release, which of course had its problems. I imagine Lionsgate is trying to make a quick and easy dollar for the release of ‘Deadpool 2‘, hence this re-release that has no new extras on it. Still, if you’re a fan of the film and want the Digital Copy, this is a way to get it.

Blu-ray Review: ‘I, Tonya’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Yes, I’m old enough to have been alive and understand all that went down back in 1994, in regards to the Olympic Figure Skating competitors. Specifically that of Tonya Harding and Nancy Kerrigan. It was such a media circus of epic proportions and very bizarre culmination of events that made worldwide news for months and even years after the 1994 Olympic games. Directed by Craig Gillespie (‘Lars and the Real Girl’, ‘Fright Night’, ‘Million Dollar Arm’), ‘I, Tonya‘ follows the life of Tonya Harding, from her upbringing, her abusive home-life with her mother and other relationships, that lead to her competing in figure skating and the infamous attack on her USA teammate Nancy Kerrigan.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Molly’s Game’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 28th, 2018

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Beka Perlstein)

Do you have a girl crush on Jessica Chastain? Do you have a man crush on Idris Elba? If you have any combination of the two, Molly’s Game is going to make you have all the feels. This is a well done film with all the right players and script that packs a punch. Aaron Sorkin (screenplay and first time director) has taken the novel Molly’s Game and turned it into a film that at a run time of two hours and twenty minutes seems fast paced and doesn’t waste your time. While I know literally nothing about poker, this movie kept me entertained and engaged because the story wasn’t the game-it was the players.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Children of the Corn: Runaway’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 26th, 2018

THE FILM


In 1977, Stephen King gave the world the short story of ‘Children of the Corn‘, which followed a rural group of kids who killed adults, because some supernatural demon told them to. Flash forward to 1984 and we got the film adaptation of King’s short story that starred a young Linda Hamilton (Sarah Connor in Terminator) and Peter Horton, whose only claim to fame was being married to Michelle Pfeiffer for a brief stint in the 1980s. The film was creepy enough and had a good backstory and origin tale to deliver the goods on scares, but it never stood tall against other horror movies of the time. That didn’t stop ‘Children of the Corn‘ from becoming a small film franchise over the years. You probably wouldn’t believe me if I told you that there are a total of 10 ‘Children of the Corn‘ films. Yes, 10 whole feature length movies that you’ve probably never seen minus the first film. Nine of these movies have never made it to the theater, but rather home video on various formats, and there is no sign of them stopping. I’m just surprised there hasn’t been a big budget remake yet. The 10th installment is titled ‘Children of the Corn: Runaway‘, which in fact involves a runaway.

THE FILM


In a world where Freddy Krueger, Jason Vorhees, and Michael Myers are real, up comes a rising star in the movie monster/serial slasher realm named Leslie Vernon, who you are dying to meet. Back in 2006, filmmaker Scott Glosserman mixed a Christopher Guest mockumentary with the slasher genre in a wonderful and darkly comedic film called ‘Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon‘. The film was ahead of its time, had a charming and witty lead, and answered the many slasher questions that we’ve had for many years.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2018

THE FILM


What if I were to tell you that Woody Allen basically made his own version of Alfred Hitchcock’sRear Window‘ that starred himself and Diane Keaton? You’d be excited, right? Well, it happened in 1993 and is kind of light a 1st cousin to ‘Annie Hall‘ as Allen and Keaton play a couple in their mid-life who thing their neighbor killed someone. The film is called ‘Manhattan Murder Mystery‘, and is a comedic film that served to alleviate the pain of Allen’s divorce from Mia Farrow.

Film Review: ‘Death Wish’ (2018)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 1st, 2018

Filmmaker Eli Roth is passionate about the horror and thriller genre since he was young. His big debut film was Cabin Fever, and then went on to the successful hyper-violent ‘Hostile’ film series. More recently, he made ‘Green Inferno‘, which was similar to ‘Cannibal Holocaust‘. Needless to say, Roth isn’t subtle in his filmmaking, as he’s shown close up gore and torture on screen with an over-the-top style. When it was announced that Roth was sitting in the director’s chair for a remake of 1974’s classic film ‘Death Wish‘, that replaces Charles Bronson with Bruce Willis, I was excitedly intrigued to see his take on this iconic film. With writer Joe Carnahan (The Grey, Narc, Smokin’ Aces) penning the script, this updated version of ‘Death Wish‘ is quite toned down for Eli Roth’s resume, which isn’t a bad thing.

Film Review: ‘Black Panther’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2018

Going into the 18th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, you’d hope you wouldn’t see the same thing over and over that we’ve been watching since Iron Man debuted a decade ago. As the years have passed on by, watching a Marvel movie became something tedious, even though most of the films are fun and enjoyable. Don’t get me wrong, Marvel has done a great job with each and every film they’ve put out, but moving into their 18th film, it seems like we’ve seen almost everything and every action scene is something recycled from the previous, whether it be superheroes jumping from car to car during car chases or aliens come out of the sky and destroying the planet. Luckily for all of us Marvel fans, ‘Black Panther‘ breathes new and creative life into a somewhat stale film series in the best ways possible.

Criterion Blu-ray Review: ‘I, Daniel Blake’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 23rd, 2018

THE FILM


For more than 50 years, Ken Loach (KES) has been making films that cause us to think about our current political and social climates, no matter what race your are or where you come from, because a lot of us suffer from the same overall issues, whether it be medically, financially, or a corrupt government. Loach has never been shy to show any of these topics in his films over the years as well as in real life interviews. If you’ve ever attended a screening a film festival or movie where Loach is the director behind the movie, you will immediately know what you’re in for, which is usually a story of someone being beat by the system, despite all of the honest and good things they do. His film I, Daniel Blake is no different, which isn’t a bad thing.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

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

by Gumbercules9000 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.

A Deeper look into the ‘The Holiday’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2017

In 2006 a little movie by the name of ‘The Holiday’ was released unto the world from the place where all darkness flows. It now signifies the start of “Holiday Movie Season” for countless women across the globe. I believe it is solely responsible for the Hallmark Channel’s holiday film slate every November-December. However, the imitators don’t even come close to the unique mess this film is. I actually don’t think I’ve seen the movie in one full sitting the past 5 years but it has been in such a rotation in my home that I’ve caught it in enough chunks to have seen it at least 10-12 full times since it came out in 2006. I really want to break down the absurdity of this movie to get everyone in the holiday spirit.

15th Annual Tallgrass Film Festival Lineup!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 25th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here, 

The 15th Annual Tallgrass Film Festival is set to run from October 18 – 22 in Wichita, KS. The weekend boasts the inaugural presentation of the L.M. “Kit” Carson Storyteller Award to Larry Gross (‘48 Hours‘), and Ad Astra Award presentation to Rose McGowan (‘Charmed‘). Among the throng of films (182!!!) the fest has to offer, there are gala events, after-parties, and enough events to keep anyone, from the most green of festival-goers to the most seasoned pros that binge-watch for a living, entertained, interested, and hell, even relaxed. One of the ticket packages includes a massage.

The festival has given us a complete lineup of films for their 2017 event and since I’m such a nice person it’s my job, I’m giving it to you.

4K UHD Review: Wonder Woman!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Warner Bros./DC Comics Cinematic Universe has been trying to get off its feet for a while now with no success, besides some decent box office money. However, most people would tell you that the new DC Comics‘ films are just not up to par with their rivals over at Marvel for many reasons. These people would be right. Perhaps one of the best moments of Batman v Superman was in fact Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It was just a shame she only had a few minutes of screen time in that film. The rest was mostly trash. Luckily, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to finally make a Wonder Woman movie, which is the first superhero film to feature a female superhero as its main protagonist, as well with a female director with Patty Jenkins. The result is satisfying, making Wonder Woman a damn good film with a few flaws.

Film Review: Good Time!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 23rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Good Time was a pretty good time. (You saw what I did there). Starring Robert Pattison, who has made it his life’s mission to make every single person other than his accountant forget that he was ever in Twilight, as Connie (Conny?) the “smarter” brother in this film about two brothers who are very bad at being criminals. It was also directed by two brothers known as the Safdie bros. I have never seen the Safdie brothers’ previous directorial work but I assume that this film mirrors their style. The movie feels dirty and dark despite having the screen littered with neon lights and color choices that felt very unique. It won’t be anything you write home about but it certainly isn’t a bad movie and it’s always nice to see actors like Pattison do something entirely different from what we’re used to.

Film Portion Reviewed by Janet White:

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.

Ron Howard Shoots Second on Star Wars Han Solo Film!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 22nd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

960

It’s official now. Ron Howard has taken over directing duties on the upcoming Star Wars untitled Han Solo spinoff movie. Yesterday, we got the unfortunate news that Phil Lord and Chris Miller were fired after creative differences with the studio heads, mainly Kathleen Kennedy and Lawrence Kasdan on the tone of the film. Lord and Miller (The LEGO Movie, 21 Jump Street) spent almost five months making this Han Solo film, but again, were fired for having a different style than what the studio was expecting. It sent fans in an uproar for sure and for good reason. It’s ultra rare that studios will fire directors this late in the game.

Strung 20 feet high over the center of squared circle, there hangs a metal briefcase with a contract inside. That contract guarantees one WWE superstar a match at anytime, anywhere for the biggest championship in the business. On July 18th in 2010, WWE held their first ever Money in the Bank PPV held in Kansas City, which was met with an abundant amount of praise. The WWE superstars must climb a very tall ladder and unhook the briefcase to win the match. There are no rules, no disqualifications, and all weapons and interferences are legal.

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 11th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

There are several elements that go into play when a movie is prepping for their initial debut. There is an advertising campaign, and the goal is to saturate the atmosphere with the upcoming movie, all designed to get us to show up in theaters and plunk down a chunk of our hard-earned cash. One of the first type of media to invade our subconscious is the all-important movie poster. This may seem like a small thing, but each poster is carefully designed to share just enough information that will reel us a bit closer, then just like when fishing, set that hook.

Limbo is an eight minute short film set in a desert. It begins by lingering on a billboard that features a painting. The painting appears to have two warriors locked in some battle. A cell phone hits the billboard and we are introduced to the main character. Turns out he threw his phone that contained a text message from his ex. He then turns around and walks into the desert with what appears to be no destination.

Film Review: The Hunter’s Prayer!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Dan M., here….

the-hunters-prayer-trailer-one-001

The Hunter’s Prayer is the best network TV pilot for a show that will run out of ideas and suck by season 2 that I’ve seen in awhile. It’s full of clichés, caricatures, and familiar twists for any thriller genre. If someone took Taken, The Professional, Cobra, Jack Reacher, & Jason Bourne (the bad one), put them in a blender, and then strained it to remove all the good healthy stuff from those movies, you’d have The Hunter’s Prayer. All that said, I didn’t check my phone during it, so I guess I’m the sucker.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 continues where the first one left off and despite not being as great as the first one, it is still a worthy sequel that is a blast for the entire run time.

Film Review: ‘[Free Fire]’!!

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Free Fire - Gun Gang

 

In typical 70s film fashion, Free Fire opens with an aerial scan of the city below.  Curvaceous, bold letters displayed nearly every cast member and some of the crew.  This got very old, long, and kept the pace slow.  Two men waiting in an alley… (Sounds like a bad joke, it was).  Stevo (Sam Riley) and Bernie (Enzo Cilenti) meet up with Justine (Brie Larson), Chris (Cillian Murphy), and Frances (Michael Smiley) for a shady gun buy with Ord (Armie Hammer), Vernon (Sharlto Copley), Martin (Babou Ceesay), Gordon (Noah Taylor), and Harry (Jack Reynor, how did they turn this hottie into a slob?).  Great cast, right?  Well, great casts alone do not a great film make.  The dialogue and plot points must harness and ride with that talent.  Inundated with morons and piss-poor shooting for a calamitous combination, Free Fire leaves the audience either shaking their heads or bowing over laughing.  Between the mumbling of lines and poor volume control, I missed bits of the dialogue for sure.  It is as if they were aiming to repeat what Tarantino did with Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs, but they were not clever enough.  Complete with wondrous never-ending bullet supplies and a villain’s miraculous ability to stave off death repeatedly aka “movie magic,” Free Fire simply does not make much sense.  Could a person, shot in their right arm, fire a weapon (even automatic rifles) with their right hand?

A resurgence of the 1990s is happening and Hollywood seems to be taking notice with ‘Game of Death,’ a Canadian horror film that opens with bright, pixilated credits – an homage to the decade’s early style of gaming. In a surreal turn of events, a group of seven unlucky millennials: Tom (Sam Earle), Beth (Victoria Diamond), Ashley (Emelia Hellman), Mary-ann (Catherine Saindon), Tyler (Erniel Baez), Kenny (Nick Serino) & Matthew (Thomas Vallieres) after a summer afternoon of drinking and drugs in a pool house, unwillingly become slaves to a board game that, just like ‘Jumanji‘ (can we pretend like the 2017 remake isn’t happening, by the way?), won’t let you quit until it’s finished.

Film Review: ‘Before I Fall’!!

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Before I Fall - Party

 

Before I Fall, based on the novel written by Lauren Oliver, opens with an out of focus shot of Samantha Kingston (Zoey Deutch). Sam, as she is affectionately called, is for all intents and purposes, perfect.  She is pretty, dates the best looking jock, and is part of the top clique in the school. Four friends, Sam (Deutch), Lindsay (Halston Sage), Ally Harris (Cynthy Wu), and Elody (Medalion Rahimi), ruling the school, doing everything together, and partying hard are the ingredients of your typical high school drama. Next, the viewer is inundated with a montage of the people in her world beginning their days in different ways. Suddenly a dread comes over me, am I stuck watching a teenybopper film?  Read the rest of this entry »

Blu-ray Review: ‘Poltergeist III’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

91do0Gkj2GL._SL1500_

THE FILM

The original ‘Poltergeist‘ film was a perfect mix of horror and comedy. It had the minds of Steven Spielberg and Tobe Hooper behind it and went on to financial and critical success. Of course, they made sequels to make more money, but we’ve often seen that more times than not, these sequels don’t embody the spirit of the original and can come off quite bad. The original film spawned two sequels and a TV Series along with the recent horrible remake. ‘Poltergeist II‘ had its share of great moments, due to the amazing visual effects work and the whole family coming back to reprise their roles, but that’s not the case with ‘Poltergeist III‘, which is no doubt, the worst film in the franchise.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ came out in 1974 and became one of the scariest and most inspired film ever made. It paved the way for so many filmmakers down the road, that we’ve seen elements in almost every horror film since then. Filmmaker Tobe Hooper was cemented into the horror cinema favorites back then. In the 1980s, he made a sequel, which was tonally and visually different, but was still met with great praise and like its predecessor, became an instant cult classic. From then, there have been a string of sequels, remakes, and prequels, all of which have received mostly poor critical acclaim. Nobody seems to be doing anything right with this franchise.

Favorite WWE Matches of 2016!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 31st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

screen-shot-2016-12-31-at-4-38-29-pm

Yes, there were a list of movies that tickled my fancy and made me laugh, cry, and be scared so badly that I had to sleep with the lights on. That list is HERE for your enjoyment. Moving on from that, if you have ever met me or have perused this site, you would know that I like a bit of the ole Pro-Wrestling just a smidgen. So it wouldn’t ben an end-of-year celebrations without trying to show you or convince you that Pro-Wrestling is the BEST thing in the universe. After all, ‘Wrestling is Everything is Everything’.

This is one of the most fun and highest forms of entertainment on the planet and a lot of the time when I’m at screenings, I wish I were watching some good ole fashioned wrestling matches. I don’t know why, but it must be in my blood. The below matches are for sure my favorite from the WWE company strictly. If I were to do an all encompassing pro-wrestling list, I would be writing this for the next two weeks and “ain’t nobody got time for that.” So I’ll leave the ‘Wrestle Circus‘, ‘VIP Wrestling‘, ‘NJPW‘, ‘ROH‘, ‘PWG‘, and ‘Evolve‘ for another post, although I think Jervis Cottonbelly and Joey Ryan (The King of Dong Style) deserve some recognition as perhaps some of the best talent in the wrestling business. Seriously, look them up.

Also, at the very bottom of this list, I will place a non-WWE match, which is one of the best matches I’ve ever seen in Pro-Wrestling, and it deserves it’s own place and category, because it’s that hardcore, fun, and insane. I highly suggest you give these matches that are listed below a real chance. You’ll see the storyline that is being told in the squared circle, the amount of high voltage entertainment and athleticism that goes on each and every night here. You will certainly enjoy it.

THE FILM

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

4K UHD Review: ‘Argo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 8th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Ben Affleck’sArgo’ is a brilliantly told film.  Affleck has come a long way since ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Mallrats‘.  In my opinion, Affleck has gotten better with each directorial effort with ‘Gone Baby Gone’, ‘The Town’, and now ‘Argo’, which I think is his best yet.  Not only is ‘Argo’ a great film, it has a smart script, good acting, clever humor in a serious and tragic situation, and impeccable period detail that rivals AMC’s ‘Mad Men’.

WWE: TLC 2016 in Dallas!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 5th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

205_tlc_12042016ej_4165-7db86e24eda82a9d788ce93bac3a469e-1200x675

WWE has just finished its 8th TLC pay-per-view right here in Dallas, TX. No, TLC does not mean Tender Loving Care or even the R&B group from the 90s. It stands for Tables-Ladders-Chairs and is considered the “hardcore” PPV of the year for WWE. This was a Smackdown Live brand PPV event where every championship title was on the line. Between chair matches, ladder matches, table matches, and an all-encompassing TLC match to end the night, it’s no doubt that each and every superstar will be sore for next few days after all of their bodies were flung into these steel and wooden pieces of furniture. The event took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX to a big crowd, however it was far from a sell-out. That didn’t stop the crowd from cheering and booing their favorite superstars at all, even though it wasn’t as crazy a crowd as ‘Wrestlemania 32‘.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Infiltrator’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

We’ve seen quite a few movies and even TV shows that cover the Pablo Escobar story and his drug cartel over the years. Some have been great where others missed the mark. Here with ‘The Infiltrator‘, you never really see Pablo Escobar, but only in passing as the story follows real-life US agent Robert Mazur or as his undercover name Bob Musella, played by Bryan Cranston, who is no stranger to the drug business (Breaking Bad). Robert Mazur went deep undercover to unlock and take down Pablo Escobar’s drug business, along with his right hand men.

Film Review: ‘Jack Reacher: Never Go Back’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 21st, 2016

Liz T., here…

jackreacher2

As I watched the latest installment in the film versions of Lee Child’s Jack Reacher novels, I couldn’t help but chuckle at the irony. Never Go Back took on a new meaning. Many fans of the novels were appalled and aghast when Tom Cruise, a visual polar opposite, was cast for the lead role. The initial film was not a box office hit and many were disappointed. Watching Director Edward Zwick’s attempt at the second movie, it is apparent that mistakes in the conversion from novel to film are so extreme that, sadly, there is no going back.

THE FILM

Emilia Clarke stars in this delightful adaptation of Jojo Moyes’ hit romance novel “Me Before You.”  Although this seems to have been her first time directing a feature film, Thea Sharrock proved she was more than up to the task, as this film is fluid, sincere and is simply an absolute pleasure to watch.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Ben-Hur - JH & MF

 

Family goes deeper than the bond of blood. Some friends can be far closer than biological family. Ben-Hur is the story of Judah Ben-Hur (Jack Huston) and Messala Severus (Toby Kebbell), brothers by adoption and inseparable until ambition drives its wedge. Separate status, Prince of Israel vs. orphan, and respect leads to essentially war.

If you haven’t watched ‘Mr. Robot‘ yet, then you’re missing out on an incredibly addictive series. I’m not the only one to think this way, as USA has given the go-ahead to a season three of the series starring Rami Malek. Malek began his career with a few bit part character performances in ‘Gilmore Girls‘ and ‘Over There‘ before making a splash as Ahkmenrah for ‘Night at The Museum‘ and it’s sequels.
