Film Review: ‘Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 9th, 2018

Hotel Transylvania 3 picks up after Hotel Transylvania 2 and I assume 1. It follows the father-daughter relationship of Dracula and his daughter Mavis. The first one was about Mavis, a vampire, marrying a normal human named Jonny. The second was about Mavis and Jonny deciding where to raise their child. This one is about how tough it is being wedding planners at Count Dracula’s Castle so they all take a vacation where Dracula attempts to find love again.

Film Review: ‘Vacation’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

“We’re on a pilgrimage to see a moose. Praise Marty Moose!” Those were wise, unearthing words from America’s family man Clark W. Griswold (Chevy Chase) as he trekked his family from Chicago to California inside the Griswold family truckster back in 1983. Clark, along with his wife Ellen (Beverly D’Angelo), and their two kids Rusty (Anthony Michael Hall) and Audrey (Dana Barron) encountered a variety of hilarious obstacles and problems along their difficult road trip, but they stuck together as a family and proved that any American family can make it across country without killing one another…mostly.

The Griswolds are back and have planned a new vacation. However it won’t feature Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo this time around, although they do make appearances here. This film follows Clark’s son Rusty (Ed Helms) and his wife (Christina Applegate), and their two kids as they embark on a road trip to Wally World. Rusty tells his family that it was the best time in his life and he wants hi own family to experience the fun and adventure of a family cross-country road trip. I guess they aren’t going to Hawaii again.

Hi, Bryan Here…

“We’re gonna have the hap – hap- hap – happiest holiday since Bing Crosby tap-danced with Danny ‘fucking’ Kaye.” One of the best Christmas movies of all time is National Lampoon’s ‘Christmas Vacation’, and tis the season right now, we decided to do one of our famous ‘Re-Casts’ on this beloved and hilarious film. Now we all know this film was perfectly cast already, but in this time of re-makes, we might as well let the Hollywood execs know our suggestions if they so choose to remake this. So behold, the Re-Cast of ‘Christmas Vacation‘. Enjoy the show.

National Lampoon’s ‘Vacation’ To Be Rebooted!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

New Line has begun negotiations with John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to helm a ‘Vacation’ reboot.  Daley and Goldstein wrote the script back in 2009 and it plays both like a sequel and a reboot according to HWR.  This new adventure will center around Rusty Griswold (the son of the Chevy Chase character) who is now all grown up and has a family of his own.  They set out on their own family vacation and encounter some of the same disasters that we all have come to love.

‘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.

‘Obsession’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Back in 1976, director Brian De Palma (Scarface) and writer Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) collaborated on a movie titled ‘Obsession‘. It was their tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’sVertigo‘ and starred Cliff Robertson and John Lithgow. The film touches on a few taboo subjects, but is nowhere near as violent as the previous mentioned films. ‘Obsession‘ is actually quite a masterpiece of the late 1970s that features a very melodramatic and thrilling story that takes you on a terrifying journey of a man who is still grieving his deceased wife and daughter.

‘Dagon’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2018

There isn’t a horror film like this out there – past, present, or future. This film ‘Dagon‘ is so off-the-wall that it has to be seen to be believed. Directed by Stuart Gordon (‘Re-Animator’) in 2001, ‘Dagon‘ follows two couples who are vacationing off the coast of Europe. At one point during this vacation, one of them sees a mermaid or so he thinks. Soon enough there is a big storm and crashes their boat. One of the couples heads off to get help at a local village to save their friends. Sounds easy and pleasant enough, right? WRONG! Turns out this village is inhabited by some evil fish people all led by a mutant fish monster who must have blood sacrifices.

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

 

 

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

 

 

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