To Dust: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2019

It’s easy to see why ‘To Dust‘ won the big Audience Award at the Tribeca Film Festival. This oddball comedy has a unique charm and magical friendship that you wouldn’t see coming if it was right under your nose to go along with its morbid curiosity about death and grieving. First time feature film director Shawn Snyder takes his script to some gnarly places, but he has some fun with it in a light-hearted and innocent kind of way that stars Géza Röhrig (Saul from ‘Son of Saul’) and Ferris Bueller himself Matthew Broderick. You can see why these two phenomenal actors were drawn to this film and why three major actors helped produce the film, including Emily Mortimer, Alessandro Nivola, and Ron Pearlman.

Blu-ray Review: The Lion King Signature Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

I remember when this came out in the cinema.  I was totally and utterly infatuated with this film.  I loved everything about ‘The Lion King’. I loved the characters, the animation, the music, and the story.  It was unbelievable when I first saw it at the age of 13.  Now I am almost 36, and the film still makes me feel like I did when I first saw it.  I am still completely in awe of ‘The Lion King’. Six years after the big Diamond Edition of the Blu-ray, which included 3D, we now have the Signature Collection of the film, which has some new bonus features, along with some older ones. The audio and video presentations seem to be the same transfers.

It was only a matter of time before ‘The Lion King‘ was to be remade into a Live-Action Disney movie. Well, with the recent success of ‘The Jungle Book‘, ‘Cinderella‘, and ‘Maleficient‘ – Disney is now in the business of live-action remakes of their classic animated films. Their upcoming ‘Beauty and the Beast‘, which stars Emma Watson as Belle is one of the most anticipated films of next year. Plus, ‘The Little Mermaid‘ has already been greenlit for a live-action remake.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

edgar-ramirez-star-trek-2

We reported earlier last week that Gerard Butler (‘300‘) suddenly dropped out of the remake of ‘Point Break‘, where he was set to play Bodhi, who was played by Patrick Swayze in the original film. Now it seems they had a second option who is the amazing Edgar Ramirez. Ericson Core will be directing from a script from Kurt Wimmer.

Film Review: ‘Godzilla’ (2014)!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 13th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

godzilla_2014_poster_51784

 It has been sixty years since ‘Godzilla‘, the true king of all monsters first graced us with his appearance on the big screen. He definitely made a big impact on audiences around the world and spawned 31 sequels and remakes since then. Director Gareth Edwards brings that number to 32 with his epic and dark toned reboot that is sure to please fans young and old and have them roaring with joy as they exit the theater. Edwards was Hollywood’s top  choice to reboot this franchise after everyone saw his 2010 film called ‘Monsters‘, which focused on two lost lonely souls who have to trek through a quarantined zone in Mexico, while evading giant tentacled monsters.

Jana B. here,

Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie and Bret Easton Ellis are teaming up with Alcon Television to develop a project for Fox that takes us back to the morbid and attention grabbing incidents surrounding the Manson Family and the murder spree that ensued in August of 1969. Some of us may not have been alive during that time, but if you pay any attention at all to current events you have probably seen the different appeals and hearings for release some of the members have gone through since then. I know the history inside and out but it’s just because I’m a little different than normal people. I am fascinated by serial killers and have read everything on the subject I can get my hands on. At one point, I wanted to be a Psychiatrist that specialized in serial killer tracking…just like Alex Cross from the James Patterson novels. I didn’t end up doing that, but I still read or watch everything on the subject. Some nights I sleep with a baseball bat under the bed , each night I’m grateful for the shotgun that is less than 5 feet from me.

Jana B. here,

Warren Beatty

Warren Beatty hasn’t been featured on the big screen for quite a while and he is ready to change that. Beatty has had a Howard Hughes-based project perking in his head for 20 years before we’re seeing any tangible sign of its existence. Beatty will direct and star as Hughes, but it will center on Hughes’ assistant and his love interest. Beatty’s wife, Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick have lent their talents to the project and we’re told there may still be a few surprise actors to join, we’re being told perhaps Jack Nicholson?

Luke Bracey Joins Cast of ‘Point Break’ Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 26th, 2014

Jana B. here,

Luke Bracey

 Alcon Entertainment, the company behind the remake of yet another Patrick Swayze movie, and movie I grew up with. Both are treasonous acts and I really hoped the ‘Point Break‘ remake would lose steam and remain untouched. Sadly, that is not the case.  Gerard Butler was previously announced to star as Bodhi, Swayze’s original part. We now have a new face for Johnny Utah, the role originated by Keanu Reeves. Luke Bracey (‘G.I. Joe Retaliation‘ and ‘Monte Carlo‘) has been announced as the newest cast member.

Gerard Butler Joins ‘Point Break’ Remake!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 9th, 2014

Jana B. , Here…

Point-Break1

It pains me every time I hear of an existing movie being bastardized with a revamp. The newest title to head to the remake guillotine is 1991’s ‘Point Break‘. I will never be a fan of twisting a fantastic movie from my childhood into drivel, reflecting the current time frame. ‘Point Break‘ adds salt to the remake wound, but also and more importantly, the Patrick Swayze wound. It’s like Hollywood is telling us anything Swayze did was crap. It’s a shorter list to name the movies the remake fairies DON’T have their meat hooks into.

Feast Your Eyes on the New ‘Godzilla’ Poster!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 godzilla

San Diego Comic Con has officially started and we now have our first ‘Godzilla‘ poster. Yes, if you remember, we are getting a ‘Godzilla‘ reboot, which will be loads and loads better than the 1998 film that starred Matthew Broderick, Maria Patillo, and Hank Azaria. Hell, that film wasn’t even a true ‘Godzilla‘ film, but rather a story about a lizard who wandered into some nuclear chemicals and grew 76 stories tall. It was a failure in filmmaking.
