Film Review: ‘The Other Woman’!!

I honestly would not have given this movie a second look. I would not have paid to see it, or rented it, if I had not been asked to screen it for Boomstick Comics. I am so glad I did!  We walked in, and from the start, ‘The Other Woman’ was not what I expected. I was so pleasantly surprised. This movie’s plot line is absolutely unbelievable, for sure, but for what it is (a chick flick), it is downright fun.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best animated movie of 2018. It is funny, charming, exciting, and carries an emotional weight I didn’t expect. Even in a year with Incredibles 2Spider-Verse manages to reach higher highs in action and storytelling.

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: mother!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

It’s been proven over the last two decades that filmmaker Darren Aronofsky makes movies his own way. He doesn’t bow down to Hollywood execs and never makes movies for the masses. Most people would fail with this tactic, but with Aronofsky, he wins awards and is met with critical acclaim. With films like Pi, Requiem for a Dream, Black Swan, and The Wrestler (I won’t mention Noah) – you can tell that Aronofsky doesn’t make tightly wrapped, happy movies with pretty little bows on them. I commend him for this, because he’s doing something that nobody else is doing.

Wonder Woman 4K UHD and Blu-ray Announced!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Perhaps the biggest movie of the summer and the one film to get DC and Warner Bros. back on track with their superhero films – WONDER WOMAN, is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD. Warner is sure milking this for all its worth, since they are also releasing a 3D version of the film, even though 3D is dead in the water. The 4K UHD is the way to go for sure here if you have the right equipment. You can own the movie digitally as soon as August 29th, and you’ll be able to purchase the Blu-ray, 4K, 3D, and DVD on September 19th. There are tons of bonus features as well, which I can’t wait to watch. Official information below.

Film Review #2: Wonder Woman!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 31st, 2017

Dan M., here….

Wonder-Woman-Diana-in-the-trenches

Let’s cut to the chase, Wonder Woman is great and one of the best modern superhero origin movies ever made. It deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the original Superman, Batman Begins, Iron Man, etc. It is a nearly flawless introduction to a truly interesting character who cannot only carry her own film but will hopefully help carry future DC films the way Iron Man does with Marvel ones.

Film Review: ‘Woman in Gold’!!

Janet W., Here…

WOMAN IN GOLD

The Piano.  Schindler’s List. I have seen films about the Holocaust and the invasion of countries by the Nazi regime.  Along comes Woman in Gold a true story about one woman’s fight against Nazi-sympathizing Austria.  Mrs. Maria Altmann (Helen Mirren) loses her sister and within her sister’s belongings finds a postcard of Gustav Klimt’sWoman in Gold” painting.  Shortly after this find, Austria announces their intent to restore stolen artwork to their rightful owners namely the Jewish families who were robbed by the Nazis when they invaded Austria.  Randy (Ryan Reynolds) is a down on his luck attorney who failed at his solo practice.

Edward Norton Turns to ‘Motherless Brooklyn’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 21st, 2014

Jana B. here,

Edward Norton

 

Edward Norton is an exceptional and compelling actor, writer and filmmaker, and has decided on his next project. Well, he decided 15 years ago, it just took time to get his vision crystal clear before it could be put to celluloid. That time is now. What is this mysterious project, you ask? The film treatment of the Jonathan Lethem novel of critical acclaim, ‘Motherless Brooklyn‘. You know how you read a book and hope someone takes that vision and puts it directly onto screen? Don’t hold your breath for that happening with this novel. While taking the source material mostly straight across there are going to be some major changes. One of those changes is Lethem’s novel takes place in 1999, or at least contemporary New York. Norton is setting his story in 1954, a time of great change in the city.

Mother Teresa Biopic To Hit The Big Screen!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 27th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Mother Teresa

The almost-sainted Mother Teresa has inspired a lot of people to do a lot of things, take vows of poverty and selflessly give to the poor among others. Movie-making is one of the stranger things that people attribute to her influence. Keir Pearson is on deck to write a screenplay titled, ‘I Thirst‘. Pearson is making news as co-writer of ‘Cesar Chavez: An American Hero‘ set to release at the end of March of this year. “Keir’s presentation and his Oscar-nominated script of ‘Hotel Rwanda’ and his sensitive script for ‘Chavez’ made him the perfect choice,” said Tony Krantz.

It’s brutally impossible to fathom The Doors’ 1971 Elektra Records masterpiece, “L.A. Woman,” is the Los Angeles quartet’s sixth and final album with singer/poet/shaman Jim Morrison, not to mention sounding as fresh and amazing as anything that has come out since, by any band. What’s equally impossible is to hear an album you’ve heard millions of times in your life for the very first time, and yet, “Mr. Mojo Risin’: The Story of L.A. Woman” is a uniquely superb and insightful document chronicling the making-of the band’s storied swan song that allows you to experience this magnificent piece of work for what feels like the very first time (again.)

Hi Bryan Here….

Since Paul Feig’s ‘Bridesmaids’ has grossed almost $300 million worldwide, Universal wanted to secure Feig to do ‘Bridge Jones 3’.  But Feig exited the project after he developed a draft for the script.  Add to that, he is not committing to the ‘Bridesmaids’ sequel yet, because Kirstin Wiig and Annie Mumolo are currently pursuing other projects.  So, it just so happens that Feig is currently available for work.  Enter ‘Better Woman’, which will be Feig’s next project.

Hi Bryan Here….

A self-made millionaire living on New York City’s Upper East Side, 39-year-old Dee Dee Ricks seemed to have it all – until she was diagnosed with aggressive stage II breast cancer.  Insured and affluent, she could afford the best treatment money could buy, but was shocked to realize how difficult it is for uninsured women in the same situation, and determined to do something about it.

Hi Bryan Here….

I was just blown away with ‘Another Earth’.  When I first saw the trailer I expected one thing.  What I got was so much more and then some.  Now I am a huge fan of science fiction and space exploration.  There has been many times, mostly in college, where I have had in depth conversations with friends about numerous scenarios of “what if a new planet was created that could sustain life just like Earth”.  This film has that scenario, but it is much deeper and has so much more going for it than just the sci-fi factor.  I can honestly say that ‘Another Earth’ is one of the better films to come out in a long time.
