Bradley Cooper stars as Chef Adam Jones, the chef with two-star Michelin rockstar with all the bad habits that accompany the title. He burned bridges and forged new paths by doing everything his own way, his only goal creating a new and thrilling taste explosion. Just like every bad boy turns good story, he’s trying to turn things around in his drive for a third star and he travels home to London to recruit the best of the best professionals ever in order to achieve it.

With the networks rolling out their fall lineups, it was expected to find a few little gems to give us some surprise, and CBS achieved that in spades. ‘Limitless‘ is a new series based on the 2011 film of the same name. While the premise of cultivating a series based on a fairly well-received film is not a new idea, having the star from the film carry the series might be, but when the star in question is Bradley Cooper, it’s a shock to the lineup.

Today has been a hot day for trailer release and it’s not over yet. I’ve written in past months about the Ron Rash novel titled ‘Serena‘ that was getting a film treatment starring Jennifer Lawrence and Bradley Cooper. I’ve talked the book up to anyone with ears when I spied the opening. I’m officially on the JLaw bandwagon of love and knew she would be able to play the iron-willed, determined, steely leading role.

Hey guys, Jana here,

The entertainment world goes through fads, just like fashion. One day we’re inundated with talking sea animals from every animated company, the next day it’s all about bugs. Right now, culinary genius is taking center stage.

The Weinstein Company began production today on ‘Adam Jones‘. This pic puts Bradley Cooper (‘Silver Linings Playbook‘) and Sienna Miller (‘GI Joe: The Rise of Cobra‘) together and adds a little spice making Cooper a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to change his ways. The project was originally called ‘The Chef‘ until  ‘Chef‘, Jon Favreau’s tale of a chef who loses his restaurant and hits to the road in a food truck piecing his life, and his family, back together along the way. Obviously this can’t work in the film industry an agreement was made and a change of title followed.

Bradley Cooper to play ‘The Elephant Man’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 23rd, 2014
Jana B. here,

Elephant Man

Bradley Cooper is the Sexiest Man Alive. It’s easy to see how legions of fans fall for his rugged, classic good looks.  He just received his second Oscar nomination in the last 2 years for his role in ‘American Hustle‘ and last year from ‘Silver Linings Playbook‘. Cooper is turning his attention back to Broadway, now. It has been eight years since he starred with Julia Roberts and Paul Rudd in 2006’s ‘Three Days of Rain‘. The reason he is returning to the stage is to headline a revival of Bernard Pomerance’sThe Elephant Man‘. Cooper will play John Merrick,  the seriously deformed man John Hurt portrayed in the 1980 film version and Cooper, himself played in 2012 at Williamstown Theatre Festival. Where the film was heavy on prosthetic SFX, the stage production is devoid of any such prosthesis. The deformity is to be shown through physical acting alone.

Hey guys, it’s Jana and I’m back!

What better way to come back from a mini-vacation than to have some awesome news? Even better than that is to have some awesome news and a brand new trailer! I’m talking about ‘Serena‘. The novel by Ron Rash is one of my absolute favorites. Of course, I didn’t even read the novel until I heard they were taking the book and adapting it to a film as a vehicle for Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence. I love to read and I love to watch movies. I’m always going to be the person that reads the book first, then pick apart the movie after.

‘The Mule’ – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 27th, 2019

THE FILM

For the first time in more than a decade, Clint Eastwood is back starring in his own directorial effort called ‘The Mule‘, which is based on a true story about a man named Leo Sharp, who was a down-on-his luck elder man who became a very successful drug runner for the Mexican cartel. It’s a rather interesting story that had some trouble being made into a film. At one point, Ruben Fleischer (Zombieland) was attached to write and direct the film, but over the course of a year or so – Clint Eastwood became involved and the rest is history. Fletcher is still credited as Executive Producer here. Eastwood tells this story with a very subtle sense of suspense. There was never any point where I felt his character was in danger or something bad was going to happen. It’s the opposite of something like ‘Breaking Bad‘ in the suspense department. Still, there is an elegant quality to Eastwood’s filmmaking that makes this story worth your while.

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.

‘A Star Is Born’ Dissection!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 9th, 2018

I lack the energy and patience to really give a deep dive into A Star is Born. I think the movie is a glorious mess. The first hour is fantastic and then it really loses focus on what it wants to say/do/or be and so it throws a ton of things at the wall before catering to the “This is Us-ification” of current storytelling to force tears from the crowd.

 

All I wanted to do here is dissect why the most beautiful moment of the movie earned everyone involved their inevitable nominations. I’m not sure anyone will talk about A Star is Born two years from now unless they are directly referencing this scene.

Film Review: ‘A Star Is Born’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2018

It’s not surprising that ‘A Star Is Born’ underwent the fourth rebirth with remakes on the rise. The latest version released in 1976 starred Barbra Streisand, but the 1954 version featuring Judy Garland arguably reigns supreme. Perhaps the track record this story has with the academy drove the motivation (2 out of 3 winning Oscars) or maybe this was an opportunity to introduce a classic to a younger audience. Whatever the case, Bradley Cooper had quite the task of not only acting in and directing ‘A Star Is Born’, but presenting this familiar narrative in a refreshing way. Yet in true underdog fashion, he may have just produced the best picture of the year.

4K UHD Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

First off, my favorite Marvel Cinematic Universe film is ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. I love the weird, oddball, and sometimes anti-hero characters so much, the dialogue, and the feel of the whole movie, that I really connected to it and enjoyed it on every level. This group of heroes are not the norm and I relish in all their conflicts, endearing moments, and witty banter. That brings us to Vol. 2 that reunites all of our favorite characters as they go on missions to save the galaxy.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 is coming to 4K UHD!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I can’t believe it’s finally happening. Disney is releasing their first 4K UHD release with Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, which couldn’t be a more perfect debut release in the new format. Disney has been holding out for a while now, while other studios have been releasing their new and vintage films in 4K. It was only a matter of time. There will be Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos included on the release as well, along with quite a few fun bonus features. You’ll be able to watch the film on digital platforms, starting August 8th, and purchase the actual 4K UHD Disc on August 22nd. So now I’m impatiently waiting for Disney to start announcing some vintage vault films and shows, re-releasing in 4K UHD. It’s only a matter of time, but expect my wallet to dwindle down with the following announcements.
