“The Fighter” Trailer is up in Glorious Quicktime

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2010

Director David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees) has a new movie called “The Fighter” starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams.


The synopsis: “The Fighter” is a drama about boxing champ “Irish” Micky Ward and his half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded after nearly being destroyed by drugs and crime.”


This looks to be an Oscar contender and one of the better boxing movies to come out in a while.


According to IMDB, David O. Russell is slated to direct the adaptation to “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies starring Natalie Portman.  Cool.

Hi Bryan Here….

FX is gearing up for a new half hour comedy series that is the brainchild of Comedian Dana Gould & Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl.  Gould is writing and executive producing the project, which centers on a rock band on the verge of mega-stardom who finds itself on the verge of breaking up and is forced to seek professional help in a last-ditch effort to stay together. Unfortunately, they end up with a misanthropic couple’s therapist from Agoura on the brink of divorce.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 25th, 2018

THE FILM


There is always hope for a new ‘Star Wars‘ movie. Two years ago with ‘The Force Awakens‘, Disneyand JJ Abrams reinvigorated the franchise into becoming the #1 movie of all time. Not only was it financially successful, but it brought a new love to the film series, since the prequels almost destroyed all that ‘Star Wars‘ had built up since 1977. It was a new day in the ‘Star Wars‘ universe with new characters crossing paths with our favorite original characters, which made our collective nerdy hearts soar with happiness and nostalgia.

4K UHD Review: ‘Dunkirk’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2017

THE FILM


There’s never been a war film like ‘Dunkirk‘, which I’d say is a masterpiece in filmmaking, lead by Christopher Nolan (Inception, The Dark Knight Trilogy). Even though Dunkirk cost $150 million to make, you really wouldn’t know it, as it’s simplistic, yet grand view of the Battle and Evacuation of Dunkirk in 1940 is perfectly captured here. Dunkirk is why we still go to the movies. It’s one of the most intense movies I’ve ever seen and is one of the reasons to get out and see it in IMAX. Other war films try add sweeping music to add an emotional effect or certain camera angles to drum up more dramatic suspense.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Creed’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

Another year, another ‘Rocky‘ movie. Some of you might be saying, “When is enough, enough?” More times than not, you might be right with any string of sequels that goes back the third installment, particularly with the ‘Rocky‘ franchise. Sure, the first ‘Rocky‘ film from 1976 was spectacular, and arguably one of the better movies ever made. It even won a ton of Oscars that year, including Best Picture. ‘Rocky II‘ came shortly after, which was still excellent, but starting with ‘Rocky III‘, things got silly and the films lost some focus. Still, audiences world wide packed theater houses to see the Italian Stallion (Sylvester Stallone) underdog his way up to the top, never quitting and giving his best. It’s a great message.

Say what you will, but director Terrence Malick is brilliant. I love all of his films. He has a unique eye and lens that perfectly captures life and people. With films like ‘Days of Heaven‘, ‘Badlands‘, ‘The Thin Red Line‘, and ‘Tree of Life‘, you can tell that Malick is one of the better filmmakers still working today. His new film ‘Knight of Cups‘ looks beautiful, but I wish it was a mix of some sort of beer pong and LARPing. Could you imagine Malick doing something like that? I wish. Here is the new trailer for the film, which looks to have a great cast and releases March 4th.

Iceman Has Said “Yes” To ‘Top Gun 2’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 17th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

MjwSohc

 

When a blockbuster film that makes you a heart-throb the world over and you’re offered a part in the sequel, you say “yes” even before you’ve read the script. At least that’s what Val Kilmer has done. Of course, I’m talking about the highly anticipated ‘Top Gun 2‘. It seems to still be in a concept stage, but getting actors on board proves it’s building steam.

David O. Russell is a renaissance man in the movie biz, a fairly well known renaissance man. The gifted, writer, director, producer has given us some staples that make up a well-rounded film education. ‘I Heart Huckabees‘, ‘The Fighter‘, ‘Silver Linings Playbook’ and ‘American Hustle‘ are just among the credits attributed to Russell. His films are separated from the uninspired masses and Hollywood has noticed the difference with massive nominations when awards season rolls around.

Hi Jana here,

Director Cary Fukunaga arrives at "Celebrate Sundance Institute" the Sundance Institute's inaugural benefit in Beverly Hills, California

Dreamworks is bringing in scribe Scott Silver to adapt the previously unpublished novel ‘Noble Assassin‘ by Paul Kix for a full-length film. Silver has written some memorable films like ‘8 Mile‘ and 2010’s ‘The Fighter‘. Cary Fukunaga director of HBO’s first season of ‘True Detective‘ will direct. He is also set as the director for the remake of one of my childhood favorites ‘IT‘. I’m going to be scouring his work looking for signs that will show either good or bad for the future of Stephen King’s quintessential tale of disappearing kids and the horror that lurks under the town of Derry, Maine.

Bryan’s Film Review: ‘American Hustle’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

new-images-from-the-hobbit-american-hustle-and-the-monuments-men-142354-a-1375953418-470-75

Formally titled ‘American Bullshit‘, director David O. Russell has generated a lot of buzz for this film over the last few months. Coming off his Oscars for ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘ and ‘The Fighter‘, you might think ‘American Hustle‘ might be on par with his previous two films. While this movie is indeed great, it lacks any sort of depth or meaning that  Russell has embraced in his previous efforts. But what he lacks in depth and meaning, he makes up ten fold in acting, characters, and insanity. I have no doubt that this 1970’s comedy con-artist film will wow audiences with its comedy and sex appeal, but don’t expect a “think piece” here. With tons of other choices this holiday season, it’s difficult to say how this will do at the box office, but with an A-List cast and the amount of hype this has, I imagine decent returns.

Fernando’s Film Review: ‘American Hustle’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2013

Fernando M., Here….

american-hustle

I think i just got played.  David O’ Russell was shooting for his hat trick with ‘American Hustle’.  In 2010, we got “The Fighter,” an amazingly emotional story about loss and addiction.  2012 brought us “Silver Linings Playbook,” an incredibly off beat comedy littered with lovable yet slightly bizarre characters and a different take on a familiar plot.  Both of these films were highly praised and proved that Russell is one of today’s more impressive directors.

Film Review: ‘Silver Linings Playbook’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 16th, 2012

FedMex Here….

The last time that we saw David O. Russell’s work on screen was just two years ago in the incredibly acclaimed “The Fighter.”  Russell had shown us the heartbreaking tale of a talented used to be who fell into the thralls of addiction while his younger brother struggled to become a prize fighter.  This year, we are treated to a tale again of characters who are a little removed from the norm and plagued by their own uncontrollable conditions.
