Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

In the game of chess, there are rules. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo series, the brainchild of Stieg Larsson, has wowed and shocked audiences since 2009 when the novel and the Swedish version of the film of the same name were released. The heroine of these provocative tales, Lisbeth Salander, is a genius level conqueror/hacker with who fights injustice. In The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Salander (now portrayed by Claire Foy of the Netflix hit, The Crown, a huge mistake in my opinion) has taken vigilantism to a new level. Do not mess with this chick.

Hi Bryan Here….

This trailer is all sorts of awesome.  Fincher seems to have tapped into a Kubrick style of filmmaking.  At least that is what the trailer made me think.  This remake has one hell of a cast and is shaping up to look badass.  I am glad this is coming out during the holidays.  It will do well.  Led Zeppelin is awesome!!!

Wonder Woman 4K UHD and Blu-ray Announced!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Perhaps the biggest movie of the summer and the one film to get DC and Warner Bros. back on track with their superhero films – WONDER WOMAN, is coming to 4K UHD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and DVD. Warner is sure milking this for all its worth, since they are also releasing a 3D version of the film, even though 3D is dead in the water. The 4K UHD is the way to go for sure here if you have the right equipment. You can own the movie digitally as soon as August 29th, and you’ll be able to purchase the Blu-ray, 4K, 3D, and DVD on September 19th. There are tons of bonus features as well, which I can’t wait to watch. Official information below.

Film Review: ‘Carol’!!

by Janet White on Dec 24th, 2015

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

CAROL

 

Carol opens with the sounds of screeching train tracks during the title slides. Fade in straight to a close-up of a street vent while an instrumental score is played. The images that follow (cars, people walking on streets, etc.) are warm with a soft glow, just what was needed to put the audience into 1950s New York. The world of The Price of Salt, the novel by Patricia Highsmith of which Carol is based.  Read the rest of this entry »

Film Review: ‘Pan’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

pan-movie

Pan opens with the star-filled, vastness, and seemingly infinite space a proper setting for our imaginations.  This is where the world began.  Fitting this would be the start of the story of one of literature’s most courageous young boy (sometimes a grown woman, remember Mary Martin played him, too), Peter Pan.  Pan is where Peter’s story began, long before he met Wendy, John, and Michael.  Peter was a baby left on the front steps of Lambeth’s Home for Boys in pre-World War I London.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Nikolaj Arcel

Fans of the brilliant writer Stephen King get excited when we see a new film being made based on one of his brilliant tomes. We got creeped out by our dead pets in ‘Pet Sematary‘, our healthy fear of  clowns graduated into a full on psychosis after seeing Pennywise as ‘It‘, groaned in pain when we saw ‘Misery‘ on the big screen, in short, we laughed, we cried, we cringed and we loved every minute of it. One novel that has had trouble making it’s way to the silver screen is King’s western epic better known as the collective work of ‘The Gunslinger‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Stieg Larsson is best known for his literary creation of troubled and resourceful badass Lisbeth Salander in 2005. The books took the world by storm spawning global interest and feature film adaptations. Larsson passed away in 2004 after finishing a trilogy of titles ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘, ‘The Girl Who Played With Fire‘ and ‘The Girl That Kicked The Hornet’s Nest‘. Most of us would have given up on the hope of any further novels, but David Lagercrantz has taken over Salander’s future and is giving us another sequel.

Film Review: ‘The November Man’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 29th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

november_man cb

Pierce Brosnan…a previous incarnation of James Bond has added producing to his repertoire.  Brosnan’s latest production is the spy thriller, The November Man, a genre with which Brosnan is a little familiar.  Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) is a super spy who trained the newbies before his retirement from the CIA.  Being the Yoda of espionage, Brosnan’s all-knowing charm shines and somewhat terrifies.

John Cusack Enters the Wall Street World!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 29th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

John Cusack with a serious expression wearing a suit and tie

When you set a series in the world of Wall Street, you need characters colorful enough to not get lost in the atmosphere. Take ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘, for example, Leonardo DiCaprio’s portrayal of Jordan Belfort was larger than life. He had to be outrageous to stand out in the fast-paced, high-stakes land of the almighty dollar. Christian Bale’s version of Patrick Bateman from ‘American Psycho‘ stands out just as much. Granted, these personalities are not what you would assume to be the norm for traders working on Wall Street, but the ambience definitely fosters these type of personalities.

Move over, Ashton Kutcher! He may have Mila Kunis, but he does not hold a monopoly on playing Steve Jobs.  Jobs was an American entrepreneur, marketer, and inventor, who was the co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc. His name is interchangeable with other greats in the industry Bill Gates, Steve Wozniak and Tim Cook

Bradley Cooper, Emma Stone, Danny McBride, Rachel McAdams, Alec Baldwin, Cameron Crowe and Bill Murray?

Hi, Bryan Here….

flatliners

Yes, it’s true, but it’s not all bad news. Niels Arden Oplev will indeed directed a reboot of the 1990 thriller ‘Flatliners‘, which starred Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, Oliver Platt, and Billy Baldwin. You might know Opley’s name as he was the guy who directed the original 2009 ‘The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Warner Bros. and David Dobkin’s ‘Arthur & Lancelot’ is once again back on the table to finally be made into a film.  Warner Bros. really wants Colin Farrell to play Lancelot and I hear that Farrell wants the job as well.  No word yet on Arthur, but I expect a big name.  The last time this project was on the table, Gary Oldman was approached to play Merlin, but it didn’t work out.  I imagine now, that things are back in motion, he will be called again for the role.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.
