Shane Black Tackles ‘The Destroyer’ for Sony!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Shane-Black

 

Everyone has favorite directors or writers and Shane Black has been one of mine since I fell in love with his work in the late 80’s. The first character that took my breath away was Martin Riggs from ‘Lethal Weapon‘, he also wrote ‘The Monster Squad‘ and gave birth to the line that any true 80’s child will say when they hear that film name – “Wolfman’s got nards!”  That’s when I took note of Shane Black and thought he was an under-rated gem in the writing world. That was quickly followed up with ‘The Last Boyscout‘ and ‘Last Action Hero’ films that supported the original idea that Black was talented and the first films were NOT a fluke.  Black then proved his mettle as a director/writer with the snarky offering into the world of noir with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘. This was Robert Downey Jr’s love song to Hollywood that signified the turning point of his career from troubled actor, to serious phenomenon ready to be taken seriously. Black gave him the direction and the words and RDJ slammed the ball out of the park. Black’s latest foray into directing came from ‘Iron Man 3‘ when he re-teamed with RDJ. He has 3 other projects in the wind at the moment with ‘The Nice Guys‘ a ‘Predator‘ reboot and ‘Doc Savage‘.

Troy Duffy Writing ‘Boondock Saints 3’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 1st, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

The-Boondock-Saints-Poster-472

“And shepherds we shall be…”  If you could finish that verse, I know you’re like me. Huge ‘Boondock Saints‘ fans. I also know that you will appreciate the announcement that dropped today from the one and only Troy Duffy. He has been back and forth about the idea of a third film in the series, but things look like they are ready to move forward into working on a script, at least.

Star Wars Destroyer Umbrella Looks Cool

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2010

What you are looking at is a prototype for an umbrella uniquely shaped like the Star Wars Destroyer.  It folds like a regular umbrella and is lighter than a golf umbrella.  The handle is similar to the graphite shaft of a golf club.

This umbrella is being designed to withstand the force of a hurricane and or an attack of rebel forces.  The umbrella is also designed to stop the chances of you ever seeing a naked woman again.

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2019

Inclusiveness has become popular and profitable for both retailers and manufactures in the last few years. Our products, hobbies and now even movies are less gender specific – thanks to a more broad-minded culture. In ‘Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,’ the latest addition to build on the LEGO universe, we’re introduced to this growing ideal through a spectrum of sparkly new toys. If audiences can look past the glitter bombs of goofiness and that shamelessly uninspired title, admirable lessons can be found in the importance of imagination, as well as in the relationships between friends and siblings.

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.

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.

Film Review: ‘Venom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2018

Venom is the latest example of a movie trying to be too many things. I don’t know if we need to blame the writers, director, or studio tinkering but somehow this movie attempts to be everything to everyone and fails miserably. That isn’t to say its a bad time at the movies, I actually truly enjoyed some aspects of Venom. I think if the movie focused on trying to do one thing instead of a million it may have been one of the best comic book movies in years. Instead, as a whole, it should be launched into space.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Tingler’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

Gimmicks used to be a huge thing in horror movies back in the 1950s. They were used all the time in these low budget horror films to conjure up scares, word-of-mouth, and good publicity to sell a movie that wasn’t necessarily any good. In 1959, filmmaker William Castle (House on Haunted Hill, 13 Ghosts) was a pioneer in using these gimmicks. He was known for paying actors to attend movie screenings and scream and or faint during the film to cause a stir. In House on Haunted Hill, Castle rigged a fake skeleton to fly through actual movie theaters to scare the audience. He was a genius for sure, way ahead of his time. In 1959 though, he made a film called ‘The Tingler‘, which starred Vincent Price. His gimmick for this film was to use some of the budget to attach buzzers to theater seats to simulate scares and screams at certain moments in the movie. It worked perfectly and this is the type of movie where this gimmick succeeds.

Film Review: ‘Sicario: Day of the Soldado’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2018

Sicario: Day of the Soldado is a stunningly topical sequel that almost lives up to the original. I personally had Sicario in my top 3 movies of 2015. The first Sicario is a masterpiece from one of the best writers, Taylor Sheridan, and best directors (Denis Villeneuve) of our time. Sheridan wrote this sequel and has now put together 4 straight incredible crime/western scripts in a row: Sicario, Hell or High Water, Wind River, and now Sicario: Day of the Soldado. It is a worthy follow up to the original and one of my favorites of the year.

Justifying the Female Villain: An Essay by Tuesday Shank!

Justifying the Female Villain

By Tuesday Shank

(Find Tuesday Shank on Twitter and Instagram!)

I stumbled through my college career. After the better part of six years, I began my work on my senior thesis. I undertook the easiest thesis I could think for myself to do: analyze a television show. My advisor’s academic expertise was gender studies. As a fan of Joss Whedon, I knew of Joss Whedon’s reputation for feminist characters and decided to use my thesis to sing Whedon’s praises.

Thus, I began my work on “Careful Jayne, You’ll Scare the Women: An Analysis of Gender Representations in the Television Show, Firefly”. I watched Firefly enough that I’m still not eager to see it again. Halfway through the semester, I just wanted to watch anything else.

Film Review: ‘The Incredibles 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 13th, 2018

The Parr family is back in action in ‘The Incredibles 2‘ with more action, wit, and spectacular visuals that is guaranteed to thrill and entertain everyone who watches. It’s been 14 years since we last saw the Parr family come to terms with being superheroes in a world that doesn’t want them. Pixar really took a chance on their first outing with superheroes in hiring an outsider in Brad Bird to take the helm back in 2004. Before then, it was only Pixar people who got to make Pixar films, but with ‘The Incredibles‘, Pixar took Bird in as their own, most likely due to Bird’s amazing film ‘The Iron Giant‘. The result was magnificent with an intimate portrait of a family with love and problems all the same. Not only that, Bird set the story in the 1960’s in a noir spy thriller type of genre, complete with a fantastic score to go along with the time. I just can’t believe it’s taken this long to get a sequel.

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.

THE FILM


Five years have past since Disney opened the vault and let loose their animated ‘Peter Pan‘ movie. In 2013, it was the 60th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray. Now, it’s 2018, and we have the 65th Anniversary Blu-ray Signature Edition. This is the same exact Blu-ray release from 2013, but with a few new bonus features and different cover art. Both the 2013 version and this 2018 version come with Digital Copies, which is good, along with a DVD version. If you have the previous edition, there’s really no need to re-buy this one, unless you’re a huge fan or want the new bonus features, which will be listed out below. It’s the same film, the same video and audio presentations as well.

Film Review: ‘Deadpool 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2018

Ryan Reynolds was born to play the Marvel Merc with a Mouth, Deadpool. Reynolds just pours all of his unique charm, wit, comedy, and physical choreography into the character. It’s almost like Reynolds is the actual Deadpool in real life, and indeed the world is better for it. Marvel and Fox decided to play nice a couple of years ago and we got a rated R Marvel superhero film with ‘Deadpool‘. It was a gamble for sure with the strong bloody violence and foul language, but the film ended up making almost $800 million at the box office and  was met with rave reviews across the board.

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.

Film Review #2: ‘Deadpool 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2018

Deadpool 2 checks all the boxes of  the very entertaining first film to the point you wonder if the script was some sort of mad lib experiment. Don’t get me wrong, letting Ryan Reynolds go full Ryan Reynolds in an R Rated superhero movie is a 90 minute blast just like it was the first time around but that’s kind of the problem… Deadpool 2 brought nothing new to the table. The Deadpool movie formula works to an extent because Reynolds is so damn fun and the first time you hear the jokes and references they land almost every time. Every criticism of the film can be 100% true but also not matter one bit with this franchise because Ryan Reynolds‘ charm is turned up so damn high that you gloss over the abundant flaws because there was a joke that you actually choked on a drink from.

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2018

For the last decade, we’ve been getting to know most of the Marvel super-heroes. In 2008, we met Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when the comic book company Marvel decided to start making their own films with their own company, without the help of any other big studio. It was a massive success, which led to 17 more films that included a ton of more superheroes, including Thor, Hulk, Ant-Man, Captain America, Black Panther, Doctor Strange, and Guardians of the Galaxy.For the first few superhero films, we were introduced to their origins and character, which led to the first Avengers films. Needless to say, that first Avengers movie broke box office records at the time and put in motion a story arc that culminates into what we have today – ‘Avengers: Infinity War‘.

Film Review: ‘Rampage’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2018

There really isn’t any point in denying that Dwayne The Rock Johnson is the biggest movie star in Hollywood right now, but he might also be the best. Nobody, except early Will Smith, can star in, sell, and market a movie the way he can. His power to entertain audiences with ridiculous premises is undeniable. Rampage is stupid, big, and insane, but it’s also obnoxiously entertaining and a joy to watch.

There are a ton of different ‘Star Wars‘ related movies and TV shows nowadays that it’s kind of difficult to keep up with a lot of the different stories being told now. On the kids-friendly version of the ‘Star Wars‘ franchise is the LEGO ‘Star Wars‘ movies, TV shows, and even video games. This brings us to ‘The Freemaker Adventures‘, which is an animated LEGO show that has only two seasons so far with a few animated shorts to go along with it. There is no sign of a third season in sight though, so this season two might be the last we see of this series.

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.

WWE is quickly stacking the card with matchups leading up to the big day, which I thought would be a good time to discuss some of the wrestler’s storylines and what we can expect on the big day.

Film Review: ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 22nd, 2018

Alright lets get the plot out of the way, shall we? Pacific Rim: Uprising takes place ten years after the final battle of the first film in which Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) gave his life to stop the Kaiju attacks. Stacker’s son, Jake, is played by John Boyega of Star Wars fame and is a promising Jaeger (the big robots) pilot who quit his training and does some underground criminal activity at the start of the film. The Jaeger program has evolved since we last saw the program where a new, younger crew defends the planet. A young girl creates her own Jaeger and is captured with Jake, which leads them to both join/rejoin the program. Of course a rogue Jaeger seems to be causing trouble and might be working with the Kaiju to reopen The Breach and release new monsters. Jake teams up with his former rival Nate (Scott Eastwood) and the young new recruits to stop the World from being destroyed and honor his father’s legacy.

4K UHD Review: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 26th, 2018

THE FILM


Thor is starring in his third stand-alone film called ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ and brings a much needed change to the character in the best possibly way. Thor now has a fun personality and great comedic timing, mostly due to Chris Hemsworth amazing acting chops here. In addition to that, the film is steeped in a hypnotic, yet hyper-active color scheme that looks like Willy Wonka and Andy Warhol got together and decorated a city. In fact, Wonka’s theme ‘Pure Imagination’ is a song that plays in the film. It’s not all cold and stiff dialogue here anymore with brown or earth toned aliens and robots that Thor has to use his hammer to fight. Everyone and everything is covered in bright primary and pastel colors that creates a breath of fresh air in this stale universe. That’s all thanks to filmmaker Taika Waititi for giving his unique vision on this big budget film ($180 million). In previous Marvel Cinematic Universe movies, particularly with Thor, things have been sour and gloomy.

Dan Moran’s ‘Black Panther’ Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 16th, 2018

Admittedly, the easiest narrative for Black Panther reviews is that it is a “game-changer”, “important”, “redefines hero”, etc. Those narratives and feelings aren’t wrong. I think Black Panther is one of Marvel’s best stand-alone hero films. It is right behind The Winter Soldier and the original Iron Man for me. In a few years it may even eclipse those two as the distance and impact it has going forward is felt. I believe the cultural and racial themes of this film are well thought out, focused, bold, and sobering. To be perfectly honest I don’t feel comfortable writing about that aspect of the film in depth. I’m a 32 year old goofy white guy who is not a good enough writer to navigate that territory, plus I lack the experiences that would make my take worth reading. There are some incredible writers who have written on the overall cultural impact of (essentially) an all-black cast superhero film and I encourage all of you to seek those pieces out because they are worth your time. My review is going to focus on just how badass this movie is.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

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.

If you’re like me, then you have grown to love filmmaker Christopher Nolan over the years. Come December 19th, most of his films will be released on 4K UHD for the first time ever. The films include the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘, ‘Inception‘, ‘The Prestige‘, ‘Interstellar‘, and the recent ‘Dunkirk‘. Each film will come with HDR as well, meaning a richer and deeper looking image for each movie. Each film will feature extras, the standard Blu-ray Disc, and Digital Copies of each movie. The whole collection will retail at about $150 with the ‘Dark Knight Trilogy‘ retailing at around $70. Of course with the holidays coming up, expect big discounts everywhere for these.

I’m surprised this hasn’t happened sooner, but good news for everyone involved. Amazon is officially in business with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg in bringing the hit comic book series ‘The Boys‘ to the TV Series realm. The comic book started in 2006 and was written by Garth Ennis (‘Preacher‘) and focused on a group of people known as ‘The Boys‘ who set out to take out corrupt superheroes who destroy the lives of many while trying to do their jobs.

Film Review #2: ‘Thor: Ragnarok’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2017

Taika Waititi legitimately reinvigorated  the marvel brand with Thor: Ragnarok. A lot of the criticism that Marvel movies get is that there are no stakes and we know that the heroes will always win. No kidding? That’s every superhero movie. No one thought Iron Man would die, no one thought Cap would die, no one thought Batman was dead in TDKR, no one thought (cared?) Superman died in BvS. Waititi proves that not taking a paint by numbers destroy the world story too seriously can be a damn blast.

Written by: Bryan Kluger…..

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

Film Review: IT!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 7th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Pennywise the Dancing Clown is back in Derry, Maine after a long hiatus and troubled production. Despite the production issues, this modern version of Stephen King’s IT is a success in many ways, but has a few tiny flaws. Let me just say that if you have a phobia or are scared of clowns in any way, this film will be quite frightening  for you. Bill Skarsgard fills the shoes of a 1993 Tim Curry as Pennywise the Clown and does a very good job. It’s not the same playful Pennywise from the 90s TV movie though. His outfit is different and Pennywise this time around seems more sinister and attacks his victims faster and more violently as we see in that first opening scene with little Georgie looking for his paper boat that went into the sewer.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

There’s a new movie coming out called Brad’s Status that stars Ben Stiller in what seems to be a dramatic role for the comedic actor. I’d say this performance has award nomination all over it, which has me gushing with excitement over Stiller. I’ve always been a big fan of Stiller and he’s proven he’s a brilliant director and can sell performances all over the spectrum. There was a run of movies that seemed like the same schtick over and over, but this film looks very good and has a ton of heart. I just hope the whole film is as good as this trailer, even though it looks to show the entire movie in it. I wish Hollywood would stop doing this.

A Little Shop of Horrors Remake is on the way!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 3rd, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

For your horrible news of the day. Hollywood is wanting to remake Little Shop of Horrors. I know, this is just awful. Greg Berlanti is set to direct the remake of the 1986 musical film that starred Rick Moranis, Ellen Greene, Steve Martin, and an impressive practical effects man-eating plant named Audrey II. Berlanti has made a career of writing and producing all of the DC Comic tv shows for the CW. I guess his next stop are plants that eat people.

Professor Marston and The Wonder Women Looks Good!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

With perfect timing since DC’s Wonder Woman film is doing outstanding both financially and critically, we are getting a film about the creation of the iconic character. The film is called Professor Marston and The Wonder Women, which is a true story of what inspired the Harvard psychologist Dr. William Moulton Marston to create Wonder Woman in the 1940s.

Guess who’s back, back again? No, it’s not Slim Shady, it’s Kingsman. In round two, ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle‘, director Vaughn gathered some of the usual gentleman, like Taron Egerton, Mark Strong and, yes – Colin Firth. He’s combined it with a healthy dose of American badass in the form of Channing Tatum, Halle Berry, Pedro Pascal, and Jeff Bridges to bring us a new adventure I can’t wait to feast my eyes on.

Film Review: ‘[Transformers: The Last Knight]’

Transformers The Last Knight - Prime

 

Exploding onto our screens without regard for the narrative or progressive plot structure, comes Transformers: The Last Knight.  True Michael Bay lovers could care less or would even notice the story’s lack of cohesion with this sequel.  They are there for the cool special effects, radical cinematography, and rich hues that make up Michael Bay’s style.

Blu-ray Review: Fist Fight

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-06-05 at 3.31.40 PM

THE FILM

Before I get into this, I need to say that I’m a huge fan of Charlie Day and Ice Cube. They have a lot of talent that spans different genres and keep delivering on each film they make. That’s not the case with Fist Fight though, which I must say is NOT their fault. Ice Cube is great in his role as Mr. Strickland, a high-school history teacher who is not above of cursing in class or taking an axe to a student’s desk with a room full of students. On the other hand is Charlie Day playing the straight and narrow guy who hates confrontation named Andy Campbell who seems to be the world’s coolest English teacher, but is lost in this movie.

Review #2 of ‘Alien Covenant’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 22nd, 2017

Dan M., here….

Alien-Covenant-Teaser-Trailer-020

A crew gets a distress signal from a planet. Crew lands on that seemingly abandoned planet. Planet has aliens. Aliens infect or attack humans. A survivor or two must fight said alien to get off the planet. Rinse and repeat. That isn’t to say the Alien: Covenant is a bad movie, it really isn’t but as far as the broad strokes are concerned it is a paint by numbers Alien movie. A marked improvement from Prometheus because it has better characters but the formula to this point is getting a bit stale for me. I didn’t hate this movie. I know it sounds like I did but really I’m just ready for it to evolve a bit more.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

King Arthur - Trio

 

Forget every film about the story of King Arthur, because King Arthur: The Legend of the Sword has nearly nothing to do with them. Uther Pendragon (Eric Bana, Yum!) is still Arthur’s father and Igraine (Poppy Delevingne) is his mother, but there is an uncle thrown into the mix, Vortigern (Jude Law). I cannot recall the character in medieval tale (and I took a course on King Arthur in college). Anyway, Law played him pretty well. I will not give it away, but I do not think I have seen Law like this ever. Mordred is a sorcerer instead of the Arthur’s son from Morgaine Le Fay? Yes, this is King Arthur told in a novel method.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-04-03 at 3.40.14 PM

THE FILM

Since the release of ‘The Force Awakens‘, Disney will be releasing a ‘Star Wars‘ film every year for the foreseeable future. Well, it’s been a year since ‘The Force Awakens‘, which means it’s time for another ‘Star Wars‘ film, and luckily for us, we get ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story‘. I’m so glad that Disney is allowing up and coming, young  filmmakers a chance to have a go at ‘Star Wars‘, because director Gareth Edwards (‘Monsters‘ and ‘Godzilla‘) has knocked it out of the park, even though there were some re-shoots with writer Tony Gilroy (‘Michael Clayton‘ and ‘The Bourne‘ films). This is the ‘Star Wars‘ film we have wanted for a long time, in that we get to see some characters do some truly amazing and badass things that we’ve never seen before, and a return to some of those classic set pieces and ships.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

samurai-jack-vs-aku

That’s right. Cartoon Network, or shall I say Adult Swim is brining back ‘Samurai Jack‘, and we have the first trailer for the new season, which is being dubbed as season 5. I was 20 years old when ‘Samurai Jack‘ first aired. I was in college, honing my samurai sword skills, eating fast food, and partaking in the rolling of joints. I don’t know if any of that had an  effect on me in watching ‘Samurai Jack‘, but you can believe I very much enjoyed the show. You can also believe I had no friends, with the exception of my pet gerbil and my He-Man action figures. I still turned out ok. Still, it’s great to see Adult Swim pick up some of the heavy lifting from Netflix in brining back fun TV shows. Now I have to remind my mom to Tivo ‘Samurai Jack’ for me every week.

Have you ever questioned your own sanity? That’s a question the trailer asks and based on what it shows, I’d be doing a lot of questioning if it were me. The tone set is creepy and morose without being kitschy or gimmicky. I’m not a huge fan of big storyline games, but ‘Call of Cthulhu‘ for the PS4 just might be the one to change my mind. I love the macabre so of course this trailer speaks to me on several levels.

It’s the MOST wonderful time of the year! No, not the holidays! It’s time for the Royal Rumble, which takes place in January and paves the way for the main event at Wrestlemania every year. Well at least for the last 30 years it has. The Royal Rumble is a Pay-Per-View put on by WWE every year with the Royal Rumble match consisting of 30 superstars entering the ring every 90 seconds. The only way to be eliminated is if you’re thrown over the top rope and your feet land on the ground until one is left in the ring standing. That one winner goes on to the main event at Wrestlemania to challenge the Champion on the grandest stage of all.

Film Review: ‘Monster Trucks’!

Joel H., here…

monster-trucks-movie-cgi-creature

Remember what it was like to dream? I’m not referring to our current dreams of better jobs, or more money, or a new car, but dreaming without restriction? As a kid, I dreamed several times of experiencing that bicycle flight in front of the moon with E.T. at the helm. I dreamed of discovering pirate gold and sneaking a kiss from my older brother’s girl like Mikey. I sat in spaceships and fighter jets made of cardboard boxes. I gave life and personality to a slew of GI Joe’s, even little green army men with no functional limbs. I dreamed. There was no lack of depth to those dreams. No impending Trump administration. No knowledge that the guns used for pretend are replicates of actual war machines taking lives every single day. My simple imagination was rampant without knowing otherwise, but I grew up.

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‘.

In an action-packed and brilliant special effects film, we have giant 30-story robots fighting vicious mega monsters on Earth. Guillermo was the perfect person for this project as he is a fan of genre films and can tell a great story with flawless structure and good acting, while mixing in loud and vibrating action sequences. ‘Pacific Rim‘ movies fast and will keep you on your toes till the very end.

Operation Mekong waits until the final credits roll to inform its audience that the film they’ve just witnessed is based on a true story. I can’t help but feel that this may have been by design as it certainly would have lessened my enjoyment to think that the filmmakers meant for me to believe even for an instant that what I was watching was true.

More than anything else, Mekong is an action movie, but does the element of realism hurt it or help it? Read the rest of this entry »

Ah, the timeless combination of film and music. The two have been married since the earliest days of film, all the way back to Don Juan in 1926, which starred the uber-hunky mustachioed John Barrymore and was the first film to include a synchronized musical score.  In fact, the first “talkie” film was 1927’s “The Jazz Singer,” which included a number of quaint musical performances and even a truly and horrifically inappropriate blackface sequence.  However, today we aren’t just here to discuss soundtracks, but rather to shine a spotlight on the movies where music is a main (if not THE main) theme throughout the film.

Well, I can also say that I can’t wait for this second season, because the first season was so good, and it had everything I ever wanted in a show, including blood, monsters, demons, romance, and Bruce Campbell. (Take a deep breath.) Sorry, I got excited. Starz has unveiled a Season 2 trailer and it looks damn good. I might just put season one on loop along with ‘Army of Darkness‘ until then to prepare for the next season. Enjoy the new trailer.

No, this is not just a friendly PSA, there’s a story here. Universal Pictures has scrapped their planned project with ‘Clifford The Big Red Dog‘ and put him back in the shelter where Paramount Pictures has stepped in and adopted the sweet, red pooch.

This movie stars a Viking, a Cylon, a Fatal Attraction, Howard Stark, a Tulip, and the Kurgan! In 2004, the MMORPG game ‘World of Warcraft‘ launched. It was so huge that it released five expansions, and a sixth on the way. Somewhere along the way, someone said, “Hey, let’s make a live-action movie of that.”

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

The Music of Strangers - Yo-Yo Ma

Everyone wants world peace. However, so few are willing to learn about other cultures and find a way to live and work together, co-exist. Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble have and continue to learn and make beautiful, inspiring music for sixteen years. The Silk Road Ensemble consists of musicians from various countries like Spain, Iran, China, etc., along the historical Silk Road (the link from China to Venice which was utilized to trade silk among other products). Ma and other musicians (Wu Man, Cristina Pato, Kayhan Kalhor, Kinan Azmeh, etc.) brought us The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and The Silk Road Ensemble, an insight to cultural musical masters from around the globe.

Looks like we know who our Pennywise will be for the upcoming reboot of Stephen King’s seminal novel ‘It‘. Bill Skarsgard will don the clown get-up and frighten a new generation of kids just as Tim Curry did for my generation. Skarsgard has been seen in Netflix’s ‘Hemlock Grove‘ and ‘Allegiant‘. He comes from a talented acting family, his father Stellan is Erik Selvig in the Marvel Universe films beginning with ‘Thor‘, and his brother Alexander Skarsgard is known for his turn as Eric, a vampire from HBO’sTrue Blood‘.

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!

Film Review: ‘The Huntsman: Winter’s War’!!

by Janet White on Apr 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Huntsman

 

Let’s say just say it…Snow White and the Huntsman was not well done.The Huntsman: Winter’s War is the hot and cold shell that envelops its predecessor.  It’s not perfect, but is action enjoyment coupled with corny sporadic humor.  Not to mention, Chris Hemsworth finally got his balls back.  I can tell you that.  Snow White and the Huntsman emasculated the action-packed hunk of man that is Hemsworth.  Though some believe that this story should not have been told, but I enjoyed the unveiling of the back-backstory.  The film could have been structured to be less predictable but sometimes you just have to sit back and enjoy a film for your base needs: adrenaline, fear, and desire.

Hey guys, Jana here,

powerrangers-elizabethbanks-ritarepulsa-700x874Every few years we get a reboot of ‘Power Rangers‘, there are some people that are thrilled about this and can’t wait to see it. My kids burned me out on ‘Power Rangers‘ – bad. But, my personal feelings aside, I was interested in the finished product when I heard Elizabeth Banks had joined the ranks of the cast. I mean, she’s A-list and she’s doing this? Definitely has me intrigued, and today, I give you the first image of Banks in full costume as villain, Rita Repulsa.

Film Review: ’10 Cloverfield Lane’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 10th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Screen-Shot-2016-01-15-at-7.53.37-AM-620x400

Has it really been 8 years since we saw New York destroyed in ‘Cloverfield‘, which was the “found footage” film produced by J.J. Abrams about a giant monster in NYC. That film was highly secretive before it came out, and nobody really knew anything about it, but it did well at the box office and there was a lot of talk of a sequel for a number of years. A couple of years ago, things started popping up on sites that said “Untitled J.J. Abrams” project, and as of a couple of months ago, we got the first glimpse of a trailer called ‘10 Cloverfield Lane‘, produced by Abrams again and directed by first time feature director Dan Tratchenberg (Portal short). The studio and Abrams himself said that this was not a direct sequel to 2008’s ‘Cloverfield‘, but it was a blood relative or spiritual successor to it, because where do you really go from the end of ‘Cloverfield‘?
