Oct/2018

I had the pleasure to sit down with the ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘ filmmakers at Fantastic Fest 2018 this year, including Jim Hosking and David Wike. You’d remember them mostly from their previous movie ‘THE GREASY STRANGLER‘. Their new film ‘AN EVENING WITH BEVERLY LUFF LINN‘ is a sweet, odd, and magical movie about love, romance, past relationships, and music. The film stars Aubrey Plaza, Jemaine Clement, Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson, and more. See the full review HERE.

Film Review: ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

mike-and-dave-need-wedding-dates

I think the vulgar wedding comedy has formed its own sub genre these days. With films like ‘Wedding Crashers‘, ‘Bridesmaids‘, ‘American Wedding‘, and ‘The Hangover‘, you have all the ingredients to make a modern audience laugh with toilet humor, vulgar language, sex, drugs, excessive amounts of alcohol, and a happy ending (pun very intended). The next on the list of this current sub-genre of wedding comedies is ‘Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates‘, which is actually based off a real life story of brothers Mike and Dave Stangle, who took to the internet to find dates for their sister’s wedding, offering a free trip. They went viral, got a ton of responses, went on national television, and had a book come out.

Hey guys, Jana here,

X-Men_Legacy_Vol_2_5

FX Networks has more Marvel and X-Men news, this time it’s an 8-episode order to ‘Legion‘ starring Dan Stevens. Stevens is one of the most heart-stopping reasons to love ‘Downton Abbey‘ and he’s playing the titular male role in Disney’s upcoming ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. ‘Legion‘ is the first cable hosted series for Marvel, ABC hosts ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ and Netflix is home to four other comic-book shows.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Coming to theaters July 8 of this year is a scenario many of us have agonized over, needing a date to a wedding we can’t skip out on. Most of us rely on friends, or even try the dreaded blind-date approach, but not these two guys. Party-hard brothers Mike (Adam Devine) and Dave (Zac Efron) go to an extreme to find the perfect date to take to the wedding, which just happens to involve a trip to Hawaii. They place an online ad to find girls their family will approve of. The girls (Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza) who win the position have a little secret their dates will soon learn, they are just looking for a trip to the islands and plan on partying harder than the brothers ever dreamed of.

FX is wading deeper in the Marvel world with the plan for ‘Legion‘, an X-Men-universe series from ‘Fargo‘ creator Noah Hawley who wrote the pilot and serves as executive producer. Marvel TV in cooperation with FX Prods will bring us the series based on the story of David Haller, the son of X-Men founder Charles Xavier and played by the dashing Dan Stevens (‘Downton Abbey‘, ‘Beauty and the Beast‘). Stevens joins a cast that also features Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart and Rachel Keller.

Film Review: ‘Dirty Grandpa’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 21st, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

UDEP_D10_01854.CR2

January continues to roll in with the bad films as is usual for this time of year. It astonishes me that this screenplay was ever on the famed Hollywood blacklist. Perhaps some of it might have been funny on paper, but it never translated well into film, even with the star power of Robert De Niro as you’ve never seen him like this before. You won’t be surprised to see that the director of the film is a guy named Dan Mazer, who was the creative right-hand man to Sacha Baron Cohen since ‘The Ali G Show‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I can’t believe April is almost here again. It just seemed like two weeks ago we were knee deep in 2014’s Dallas Film Festival, which had some excellent films showcased. But that time of the year is just about to begin and the good folks over at the Dallas Film Festival have announced the first 10 films that will show at the festival. Also, it looks like the fest will be honoring the excellent filmmaker John Landis as well, which is all sorts of cool.

Find Out What Kim L. Thought About ‘The To Do List’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 26th, 2013

Kim L., Here….

to-do-list-aubrey-plaza

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”.

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World Hits DVD & BLURAY in November

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2010

USA Today’s Life section had some cool news on the cover.

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World will hit DVD & BLURAY on November 9th (which is my birthday) and will be loaded (hopefully) with tons of cool extras.

The U.K. release of the film on DVD & BLURAY already has some certified extras which will most likely be on the U.S.A release. Some rumored features include: the trailers and teasers for the film, an audio commentary with all the main actors including Micahel Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Ellen Wong, plus another audio commentary with Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, and Mark Webber.

That’s about it for features for the U.K. release.  The commentaries sound cool, but I would like to the studio and tell them on the bluray they release in the U.S.A. please make it a 3 or 4 Disc release.  Disc 1 containing the high-def film plus extras.  The 2nd disc can be for extras to if there are plenty but I will get to that in a minute.  The 3rd disc can be the DVD version and the 4th can be the digital download so I can watch Scott Pilgrim on a plane or train.

So studio, please give a listen please.  I really do not care nor do I think most people care about going online through the blu ray player and watching the film with others or exclusive online content or bookmarking chapters or creating your favorite scenes.  While all that is cool, it is not what I want as an extra on a bluray.

Please, what I would love for this bluray is an in-depth behind the scenes documentary that spans from the graphic novel creation to the audience recation to the opening of the film and everything in between.

I would also like a commentary by the director Edgar Wright with his pals Simon Pegg and Nick Frost even though they had nothing to do with the movie.  Even if it was a shit movie (which it is not by any means), I would purchase the movie for this alone.  In addition to the commentaries, how about making them video commentaries in the vein of MST3K where you can see the shadows of the people giving the commentary and they can point things out on the screen as they are happening.

I want a featurette featuring all the music of the film and band rehearsal footage.  Also I would love a 10 minute gag reel.

Since this is a geek/video game centric movie, how about interviews with the cast and crew talking about their favorite video games and maybe even footage of a video game tournament involving the cast and crew.

Maybe perhaps some hidden easter eggs of some evil exes that “Didn’t make the Final Cut” of the movie and their lame battle scenes?  Could be great.

Some deleted scenes would be great as well.  Also maybe some of the evil exes introducing the special features or talking at you to press a button on the menus of the disc.

I mean this movie is epic and the dvd release must be equally epic.  I loved this film.

I am very much looking forward to this release here in the U.S.A.
