‘Avengers: Endgame’ 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 13th, 2019

The culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 is here with Avengers: Endgame. Back in 2008, a few people had a big idea for us comic book fans. That idea started with Iron Man, where at the end of the film, Samuel L. Jackson showed up and wanted to get a team together. That team would be the Avengers, that would go on to team up everyone’s favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, The Wasp, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlett Witch, Vision, The Winter Soldier, and a few others. Spread over the course of ten years, these filmmakers and Marvel Studio execs have crafted an intense storyline that has continued over the last decade with rich and iconic characters that have had their own movies to shine, along with teaming up here and there to take on bigger threats.

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review!

“Avengers: Endgame is the perfect ending to the biggest franchise in history.”

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2019

 

“Avengers: Endgame is a nearly flawless closing chapter to this universe that started with Iron Man.”

Avengers: Endgame is a nearly flawless closing chapter to this universe that started with Iron Man in 2008. Every movie leading up to Endgame is represented here is a way that honors (while flexing) everything that Disney/Marvel has achieved in the last 11 years. For a movie this dense and long to be executed at such a high level is a testament to the common knowledge that Marvel has created with its characters over the last 11 years. For a movie to have nearly 50 characters appear yet still feel grounded and focused on the original six Avengers we met between 2008-2012 was astonishing.

Avengers: Endgame Predictions!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 17th, 2019

We are one week away from the big L.A. premiere of Avengers: Endgame. The embargo on critics reviews will lift shortly after that and the internet will be the wild west of spoilers for two days until the movie is released. I have succesfully avoided spoilers like the plague for Avengers: Endgame. I got off of Twitter last year and deleted Facebook in January (not because of Endgame), so it is very easy to avoid spoilers. I dabble in Reddit for news sometimes but don’t subscribe to any “spoiler” groups, and I still plan to stay offline starting that day in case anything makes the home page. Now even though I am leak and spoiler adverse, I have watched every single trailer and TV spot and spend way too much of my adult time speculating what will happen. I was also in the Wal-Mart toy aisle yesterday and saw the Avengers: Endgame figures so that tipped me off too. So here is what I think will happen based on that…

Wesley Snipes Set To Star in TV Series ‘Endgame’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 23rd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wesley_Snipes_-_66ème_Festival_de_Venise_(Mostra)

It’s great to have Wesley Snipes back in the world and getting work. While I wish he would put the fangs back in and handle the sword to kill vampires as ‘Blade‘, it seems he has having more fun than picking big blockbuster projects. At least for now. I’m happy Sylvester Stallone asked him to come aboard ‘The Expendables 3‘, with a possibility to co-star in sequel films.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.

John Wick 3: Parabellum – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 15th, 2019

 

“John Wick 3: Parabellum was one of the most entertaining movies, start to finish, in recent memory.”

John Wick Chapter 3 is up there with some of the best action movies of the past decade and I honestly can’t imagine it won’t be the greatest action movie of 2019. This trilogy has somehow moved beyond a joke about Keanu Reeves shooting people because his dog died after the trailer premiered for the first film to a technical masterpiece with lore and history of a well realized World bursting in every scene. John Wick Chapter 3 somehow ups the ante again delivering the best collection of action set pieces in the series so far while doing a decent job of linking these fights together with a world expanding story. This movie is like having adrenaline injected directly into your bloodstream for two straight hours.

Captain Marvel – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 5th, 2019

“Captain Marvel is perfectly acceptable and definitely worth seeing.”

Captain Marvel is a victim of Marvel’s release schedule. It is a perfectly fine and entertaining entry into the MCU but releasing it six weeks before Avengers: Endgame just can’t help but permeate my review of it. I am here for the end of the Avengers as we know them and while Captain Marvel is good enough, I found myself looking for easter eggs and Avengers tie ins instead of focusing on this story on its own. I assume I won’t be alone in how that taints my review.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2018

Jurassic World‘ burst onto the scene as a sequel/reboot hybrid film that made over $1.6 billion at the box office. Of course, there would be more, but at what cost? ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘ takes place a year or so after the events of the first film where the island where the theme park and dinosaurs were on are ravaged by an exploding volcano. Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard team up again to save the dinosaurs, however they are misled by a maniacal businessman who has other plans for the dinosaurs, mostly being selling them at an auction to warlords across the country in hopes of turning these dinosaurs into military killing machines with freaking lasers attached to their heads for a profit. I’m not making this up.

4K UHD Review: ‘Ready Player One’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2018

THE FILM


One of the most anticipated movies of the year is finally upon us with Steven Spielberg’s return to the fantasy/sci-fi realm in ‘Ready Player One‘, which is based on the pop-culture fandom novel from 2011 of the same name by author Ernest Cline. The novel was a best-seller and was chock-full of the 1980s and 1990s references in the form of video games, movies, TV shows, and more. in fact, every page of the book was like reading a nostalgic diary of your past childhood favorite things. ‘Ready Player One‘ takes places a few decades into the future where a simulated and very realistic virtual reality game is the main form of entertainment where people put on goggles and can be anyone or anything they want.
