Blu-Ray Review: ‘Iron Man 3’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

iron-man3

With ‘Iron Man 2‘ proving to be less than stellar back in 2010, this third sequel of the Marvelhero returns with a much needed boost of attitude and character that takes us through many twists and turns and tons of new Iron Man suits. This can be considered a sequel to both 2010′s ‘Iron Man‘ and Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘. Director Shane Black tosses away much of the wham-bam action scenes and focuses on the quick witted humor and our hero’s internal struggle with crippling panic attacks. I have no doubt this will be a fan favorite of the franchise.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sony has finalized the deal to have ‘Iron Man 3‘ and ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘ director Shane Black to co-write and direct the next comic book adaptation of ‘Doc Savage‘. This is looking to be Black’s next directorial effort. I couldn’t be more thrilled with this news. I love Black’s work and I thought his ‘Iron Man 3‘ film was the best yet of the franchise as you can read HERE.

iron-patriot-iron-man-3-character-poster

Here is the new ‘Iron Man 3‘ poster which has Don Cheadle (Rhodes) in the Iron Patriot armor, which looks very cool. Shane Black making an ‘Iron Man‘ film is just incredible. I think it might be the best one yet. The third installment opens up May 3rd, and I’m sure we all can’t wait.  I hope at the end of the film we get a tease for the next ‘Avengers’ movie.

‘Iron Man 3’ Will Get the IMAX 3D Treatment!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 22nd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

bgn2

Disney and Marvel just announced that the 3rd ‘Iron Man‘ film will be released in IMAX 3D, meaning the final version of the film will be remastered for the impressive format.  This also means higher ticket prices for all of us.  So far, the last two ‘Iron Man’ films have grossed over $1.2 billion in the box office, and with this new film having higher ticket prices, I wouldn’t be surprised if this new movie were to surpass the $2 billion mark for all three flicks.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is your first full look at ‘Iron Man 3’.  “Marvel’s “Iron Man 3″ pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy’s hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him.

Behold!!! A glimpse of the ‘Iron Man 3’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 21st, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is a fun and short look at ‘Iron Man 3′, which the full length trailer will be released Tuesday.  Enjoy this snippet of what you can expect.  Iron Man gets a third outing fresh from his team-up with The Avengers in this Marvel Studios production.

Jon Favreau Will Return to ‘Iron Man 3’ As An Actor!!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

I think most of knew that Jon Favreau was not directing the third installment of ‘Iron Man’,and that Shane Black was going to take the reigns.  But, it looks like Favreau will reprise his role as Tony Stark’s bodyguard, Hogan, in the next ‘Iron Man’ film.  Shooting has already begun earlier this week in North Carolina.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Oscar winner Ben Kinglsey (Schindler’s List/Gandhi) is final negotiations to take on Iron Man’s next villain in ‘Iron Man 3’.  A lot of fans of Iron Man were hoping to see that villain be the Mandarin, but insiders close to the film have hinted it won’t be the Mandarin.  All that I know is that when Kinglsey and Robert Downey Jr. share the screen, everything will be glittered with gold.

Hi Bryan Here…

Jon Favreau who is best known for his role in Swingers and also as director of the films “Elf”, “Zathura”, and the last two Iron Man films, has decided to turn down the offer to direct Iron Man 3 for Marvel.   Instead he has signed on to direct the big epic film called “The Magic Kingdom” which you can read our earlier coverage of this film HERE.

So a little while ago we all knew that Disney bought the comic publisher, Marvel.  I cannot believe this soon, that Disney is already soaked up Marvel Films.

Paramount has released the previous Iron Man Films, but the 3rd one will be Disney.  Paramount was given $115 million dollars for this, but this has got to suck for Paramount.  The Avengers movie will be Disney as well but Thor and Captain America will still be with Paramount.

Disney announced that Iron Man 3 has a release date of May 3rd, 2013.   No word yet on if Jon Favreau will direct, but hopefully he will be first choice.  also no word on if it will be 3-D or not.  Hopefully not.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman Begins’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

THE FILM


Since 1989, we were thrilled to have Batman movies. In 1989, we received are first big budget Batman film from newcomer director at the time Tim Burton. It went onto be a box office sensation and spawned three more sequels, which became increasingly worse and silly. By the time the 4th film got around, it was more like watching a slapstick cartoon than anything good or resembling Batman. In fact, the franchise became a joke. Then came along Christopher Nolan who made his trilogy of Batman films, starting with ‘Batman Begins‘, which told a much darker and realistic side of the Dark Knight. The results were astounding on both critical and box office fronts.

4K UHD Review: ‘Cars 3’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

THE FILM


This film review portion was written by Jodi York.

I wasn’t sure how well a midlife crisis plot line was going to play with my 10 & 12 year old viewing companions, but they both gave Cars 3 the thumbs up!  Surprisingly, Harrison said that he really enjoyed that this was a ‘comeback story.’ 

There were a number of new characters introduced in this film.  Jaquelin, who has a need for speed, said she liked the way the new, high tech racers looked; but what we all relished the most was the scenes with the ‘old timer’ racing cars, which Lightning McQueen sought out to try and get his racing mojo back after a big crash.  There were numerous flashbacks with Doc Hudson (McQueen’s late mentor), and this was a big hit with us.  We all appreciated McQueen’s journey into Doc’s past, reviewing Doc’s career; meeting and training with his mentor, Smokey; and learning that Doc’s greatest pride & joy came not from racing himself, but from training McQueen.

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 #2: Spider-Man: Homecoming!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Spider-Man: Homecoming is a really good “Marvel” (too lazy to explain all the Sony stuff) movie that is hopefully the breath of fresh air the MCU needs. It had much smaller stakes, much more realized supporting cast and World that they operated in, a good villain that made sense, and a finale that didn’t turn into a $45million CGI punching. If the future of the solo Marvel films is going to be smaller universe conflicts that are more narrowly focused like this and Ant-Man? I am here for it. Leave space to Guardians & Thor, the end of the World to the Avengers, and weird dimensions to Doctor Strange. Give me low level criminals that Spider-Man has to fight before a math test to break those huge films up any day of the week.

Film Review #2: Wonder Woman!

Dan M., here….

Wonder-Woman-Diana-in-the-trenches

Let’s cut to the chase, Wonder Woman is great and one of the best modern superhero origin movies ever made. It deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as the original Superman, Batman Begins, Iron Man, etc. It is a nearly flawless introduction to a truly interesting character who cannot only carry her own film but will hopefully help carry future DC films the way Iron Man does with Marvel ones.

4K UHD Review: 3:10 to Yuma!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 1st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

515KUw8h2dL

THE FILM

Filmmaker James Mangold has certainly made a name for himself in the Western genre of cinema with the likes of 3:10 To Yuma and more recently Logan. The guy knows how to tell a thrilling story set in the old west as we’ve seen before. Prior to this 2007 version of the film, author Elmore Leonard (Jackie Brown, Get Shorty), wrote a short story, which was adapted into a 1957 film called 3:10 To Yuma. Mangold thought it would serve as a great remake in these modern times and he wasn’t wrong, while he added a few new story conflicts to this great 2007 version.

‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ Has a Trailer!

HI everyone, Bryan here…

Screen Shot 2017-03-28 at 11.48.23 AM

All the cookies should be given to Sony, because they have finally learned to share ‘Spider-Man‘ with Marvel Studios. We saw the actor Tom Holland in the Spidey-suit in ‘Captain America: Civil War‘, and was probably the best Spider-Man we’ve seen thus far, but I imagine we will see about 1245 more versions of this character over the next couple of years. Hell, we still need Spider-Man to go into Darkness or something like that.

Film Review: ‘The LEGO Batman Movie’!

the_lego_batman_movie_-_batcave_teaser_trailer_screen_shot_-h_2016

The Lego Batman Movie or Deadpool for Families.

When it was released in 2014, The Lego Movie shocked me with how great it was. It was hilarious, had a brilliant concept, and a big reveal that was executed perfectly. It is also one of the few non-Disney/Pixar movies to have a ton of heart. Since that time I’ve seen some Lego Frozen shorts on Disney Channel and some Star Wars Lego stuff thanks to my kids and the humor is pretty top notch. The Lego Batman Movie takes all of these elements and created a truly laugh out loud movie, with a fun story, and some heartwarming moments. It is an A+ family movie.

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

shane-jump

As I’m recovering from seven insane days of ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX., I’ve had time to reflect, contemplate, saturate, and regurgitate every I event I attended. I had my box of Booty O’s to make sure I wasn’t Booty thru the weekend, met some good people, watched some amazing matches, talked with some WWE Superstars, and lost my voice when Shane-O-Mac put his life on the line for the WWE Business. To quote a certain former WWE announcer, it was a slobberknocker of a week for sure that hit me in the solar plexus more times than I’d like to admit. WWE really did it up big this year for Wrestlemania 32. Not only did they put on several good shows, but they also broke records. There was over 101,000 people in attendance at AT&T Stadium for Wrestlemania 32, beating the previous record from Wrestlemania 3 by quite a bit. Not only that, ticket sales and merch sales were way up as well from previous years. It seems like WWE is growing exponentially with more and more fans tuning in every week. That’s a good thing. Instead of writing a recap of the entire weekend, I’ll give you some details of some of the cooler things I witnessed over the past week.

‘Ant-Man’ Begins Production and Fills Out Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

1608470801_1355278853

 

 

 

Today marks the beginning of filming for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. It has been a winding road getting to this point though. There has been a change in director and the loss of 3 cast-members due to scheduling issues because of delays. Some of us probably thought it would be a miracle of Marvel proportions if it were to ever make it to the big screen. Some of the reason for doubt stems from the fact that original director Edgar Wright had been working on bringing the 2D superhero to life since 2006 with very limited success.

Well, we got word today that Wright and Marvel have parted ways due to creative differences on where they want to see the film go.

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

It’s Super Bowl Day, meaning us fellow movie geeks are only interested in a couple of things. 1) Movie trailers. 2) The commercials. 3) Food. 4) The Puppy Bowl. Not necessarily in that order. I mean, the Puppy Bowl is really the only time out of the year where the entire world is at peace and everything is a bit brighter. But, this isn’t about the Puppy Bowl.  This is about some really amazing movie trailers that will be shown during the big game this year.  We can expect a new ‘Iron Man 3‘ trailer, a new ‘World War Z‘ trailer, ‘The Lone Ranger‘ trailer, and another ‘Oz‘ trailer.  Plus some other surprises.  Below are the trailers you can see before anyone else does.  Enjoy.

The Top Lucky 13 Horror Movie Soundtracks!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2012

Lisa S. Here….

While compiling this list, I realized there was no way I could choose only 10 of the best horror soundtracks. So, because I thrive on being different, I am very pleased to bring you 13 of the choicest, rarest, and most kick ass horror soundtracks that I know of. Every one of the following are so good, it was really difficult to rate them from best to bestest.  Each and every one of these titles hails from the very late 70’s thru the 80’s…how incredibly biased of me.

I hope you enjoy it.

‘Treme’ Returns for 3rd Season Sept. 23!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

First, the people came back. Then, the crime. Now, more than two years after the near death of a great city, the money is starting to arrive, which would sound like a solution if this were some place other than New Orleans, and this was some other era but America at the millennium. For the people of New Orleans, even the promises of redevelopment come with strings attached, and every dollar that shows up – whether from government disaster relief, or from venture capital, or even from those seeking to remake New Orleans in the wake of Katrina – carries with it new dynamics and new risks. National interest has waned, moving on to the next headline, but those who know and love the Crescent City have no choice. They must find their way back to what matters in the life of their city. However, little of what they can bring to bear yields a quick result, and nothing about New Orleans – its government, its police department and courtrooms, its school system – works as it should. Nothing is easy.  In the end, their only weapons are community. And culture.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Warner Bros. and IMAX theatres let loose today a bit of the synopsis for Snyder’s reboot of Superman as well as confirmed that it will be fully in IMAX 3D.  ‘Man of Steel’ plans to release next summer.  And for those of you attending ComiCon this year, be sure to check out the ‘Man of Steel’ panel, for I’m sure you will get some footage and information on what we can expect from the new film.  Hopefully a trailer will be released.

FedMex Reviews ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 3rd, 2012

FedMex Here….

The Amazing Spider-man is a mixed bag of treats for the whole family.  The character is being revamped at scantly over a decade since the franchise proved to be box office gold, and one can only assume that the only real reason for bringing back the web slinger is to rejuvenate the comic book hero at a time where comic book movies are both incredibly profitable and highly critically acclaimed.

Hi, Bryan Here…

The official red band trailer for Quentin Tarantino’s “The Man With The Iron Fists” starring RZA is here. In feudal China, a blacksmith who makes weapons for a small village is put in the position where he must defend himself and his fellow villagers.  “Quentin Tarantino presents an action-adventure inspired by kung-fu classics as interpreted by his longtime collaborators RZA and Eli Roth.”  This is RZA’s first time in the direcotr’s chair as he is directing Lucy Liu and Russell Crowe.  Enjoy it.

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Having not seen Volumes 1 and 2, I considered that I might be a bit confused coming into the plot. However, a review like this can be done by a fangirl like me due to an extensive knowledge of comic book characters and situations. I marched right into Episode 14 of this series without breaking a sweat, and was mildly disappointed to learn that I am not special here – anyone could do it.

Nobody’s actually surprised, of course, but it’s newsworthy nonetheless. Guy Ritchie and Warner Bros. are already discussing the third Sherlock Holmes movie starring Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law. Drew Pearce will write as soon as he’s finished with Iron Man 3.

Hi Bryan Here….

Marvel and Paramount must have tons of faith in Thor, because it has already been given a sequel and release date.  The date is set for July 26th, 2013, and so far Chris Hemsworth will return to play the Mighty Thor.  No word on if any of the other cast will return.  I’m sure they will.  But director Kenneth Branagh will not be back.  Sources say he declined and it went down mutually and amicably.

Bluray/DVD Picks For The 3rd Week Of February!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.

As usual, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Hi Bryan Here…

Hi folks.  Boomstick Comics has a new writer who will be contributing reviews, news and all sorts of AWESOME to the site.  I have known him for the better part of almost fifteen years now and I can say is when he is not eating carrot cake covered with Lucky Charms, he enjoys all types of films and music, and enjoys a good lightsaber battle.  He will be known as the Twelfth_Angry_Man. So give him a warm welcome and enjoy his review/recap of FAILS & WINS from this 1st season of AMC’s Walking Dead.

TOP 133 FILMS OF THE LAST DECADE #’S 68-54

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2010

Bryan Here…

Knocking out this list on time and schedule nowadays.  Feels good.  Some great films on this part of the list.  Some that I have not seen in a while that I will have to watch again soon. We’re getting down to the #1 spot pretty quickly.  Enjoy this part of the list #’s 68-54.  As usual, you will get the title of the movie and the date it was released plus a mini review/memory by me.  Also a link to purchase the movie if you are ever so inclined which would donate a small percentage back to this website so we can keep giving you AWESOME material and prizes.

Enjoy

68_ Iron Man – May 2, 2008

Another comic book film.  Iron Man is really really good in pretty much every way.  Robert Downey Jr. is killer in this film as the super-hero and Jeff Bridges is a pretty convincing bad guy.  This film is a lot of fun and full of laughs and action.  Can’t wait for the sequel and Avengers film.  Go Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

67_ Brick – March 31, 2006

This film is great.  A wonderful homage to the old 30’s noir films.  Set in present time but take the characters and have them talk like they did in the 30’s noir film and a plot and story line likewise.  It is so great.  Tons of twists and turns.  Joseph Gordon Levitt is amazing.  I am proud to have this on the list.  Love this film.

66_ Drag Me To Hell – May 29, 2009

Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre from his long stint on the Spidey franchise is 100 % AWESOME.  Sadly no Bruce Campbell, but Drag Me To Hell is Evil Dead I & II and Army of Darkness rolled into one film.  Yes it is that great.  This is your standard tale  of a gypsy woman curing a young girl this curse activates a demon to terrorize its victims and DRAG THEM TO HELL.  Good scares and great laughs.  A lot of fun.

65_ Zoolander – September 28, 2001

Ben Stiller is great director and a great character actor.  Tons of quotable lines from this film even today.  A dark comedy in the world of super-models.  I mean in the first five minutes of the film a few super models die in  a gas station fire which they started.  HILARIOUS.  Tons of great cameos and acting all around.  Zoolander will always have a place in my home and heart.   I mean he did found the Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good.

64_ Napoleon Dynamite – June 11, 2004

I saw this film five times before it was initially released wide and I loved every minute of it.  I really cannot tell what time period it is in other than sometime in the vague present, but Napoleon is a kid in high school who is maybe the most awkward kid ever, but he means well.  This is the story of his life in the span of a few weeks.  It is quite hilarious in this dry humor.  This character is one of the cult icons now in history.  The dance number at the end to Canned heat classic.  Love this film.

63_ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – March 19, 2004

A gem of a film from Gondry.  This film is fantastic film.  Almost like you are in a dream and nightmare at the same time through out the whole film.  A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.  Truly fantastic.

62_ Ratatouille – June 29, 2007

I really liked this pixar film.  All about the restaurant and food and cooking industry.  So much heart and love is in this film.  It looks beautiful and and the voice acting by Patton Oswalt is wonderful.  Anyone can cook, even a rat.  Love it.

61_ The Departed – October 6, 2006

A really great gangster film from the best gangster director.  That is Marty Scorcesse.  Boston gangs.  All-star cast and tons of twists and references to other mob films.  Leonardo Di Caprio plays an undercover agent in the mob and tries to keep his sanity and wits during the whole time.  What a great film.  Alec Baldwin is hilarious in this film.

60_ Munich – December 23, 2005

A Spielberg film about the true events and revenge of the horrible attack at the Munich Olympic games against the Israel team.  Eric Bana leads the grou to kill one by one the terrorists responsible for the murders.  What an amazing film.  Everything is great about this film except for the last ten minutes which is what to expect from Spielberg films.

59_ Thank You For Smoking – March 17, 2006

I really loved this film.  This about lobbyists in our nation.  Lobbyists for tobacco, guns, and alcohol and how they persuade politicians and important people to keep their industry making large amounts of money.  It is very good and entertaining.  Pretty scary too that this actually goes on.  Great writing and acting all around.

58_ The Hangover – June 5, 2009

Form the director of Old School and Road Trip comes the next film about a crazy Bachelor Party in vegas with strippers, guns, tasers, naked people, Mike Tyson, tigers and much much more.  I believe this film is the highest gross out of any R rated film ever.  It is very funny.  Very funny.  Leslie Chow.

57_ Superbad – August 17, 2007

Oh this great comedy film brought tears of laughter to my face.  Oh so funny.  Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are best friends in their last days of high school who have only really hung out with each other and are invited to  a huge party and are asked to supply the liquor which is the “entire funness” of the party.  This is their journey to accomplish this with their friend McLovin who is a cult icon now too.  This film is great and has most of the Apatow gang in it.  Not only does this film bring the best jokes but it also has a great heart and soul in it as well.  Friendship.

56_ Serenity – September 30, 2005

Man Joss Whedon kicks ass.  His vision of a sci-fi/western world is phenomenal.  This was a television series before a film.  The film is equally awesome as the show was.  I wish more films were like this.  It is entertaining, scary, funny, romantic, and pretty much all the emotions across the board in the span of two hours.  This will entertain you for years to come.  There is a reason all these shirts and posters say Joss Whedon is my Master now.  It is true.

55_ 300 – March 9, 2007

Frank Miller’s brutal Spartan comic became a reality when director Zack Snyder took the helm and adapted it into a movie.  This movies is 99% shot on a green screen with a “crush” technique that gives the film its rustic vintage look.  I was wondering how they were going to turn a 32 page comic book into a whole two hour feature length film, but they did.  And did it well.  I saw a screener of this movie way before its initial release and it was introduced by UFC Champ Chuck Liddell.    Chuck got us all in the mood for a hardcore brutal film about honor and freedom.  The fight scenes were filmed extremely well and has been copied in many other movies after this one.  I am referring to the normal pace to the slow- mo action beats all in one shot.  The use of heavy metal music was an added booster to the balls this movies has.  I really liked this movie.  Very entertaining.

54_ Hot Fuzz – February 14, 2007

The second feature film from BADASS director, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), brings us his vision of the ultimate fast paced action thriller in Hot Fuzz.  This film starred the same cast as Shaun of the Dead, and was about the best police officer in London getting re-assigned to a very small quiet village.  The people who live in the village are not what they seem.  This film packs a huge punch of action and gut busting laughs.  The end action sequence lasts about 25 minutes and is balls to the wall AWESOME.  Edgar Wright can do NO wrong.  I saw the U.S. premiere of this film at AFI, and met Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, and Dolph Lundgren (who introduced the film).  A great film that I will enjoy through the ages and one of the best action films EVER.

Blu-Ray/DVD Releases for the 3rd Week of October….

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2010

Sorry, It’s a Little late today, but still on schedule.  There are some AWESOME releases this week.  Some that I have been waiting years for. Anyway – as usual – the pics and titles link over to AMAZON – where you can learn more about the film in question – and can purchase the item, which helps give a small donation to help keep this column going. Now – here we go…

Apocalypse Now: Full Disclosure Edition (Bluray)

During the Vietnam War, young U.S. Captain Willard is given the assignment to hunt down and kill one of his own: Colonel Kurtz who has apparently gone insane, murdered hundreds of innocent people, and constructed a strange kingdom for himself deep in the jungle. Willard and his crew embark on a surreal river journey to find Kurtz, meeting along the way a Lieutenant- Colonel who likes to watch surfing during live combat, and Playboy bunnies dropped in by helicopter to entertain rowdy troops.

This is one of the best films about war to date.  It has an all-star cast including: Robert Duvall, Marlon Brando, Martin Sheen, Dennis Hopper, and Francis Ford Coppola as director.  It is loaded with extras.  I highly recommend this.

Assault Girls (Bluray)

Now I do not know much about this movie, but the synopsis makes me want to buy this and watch it.  Could be a hell of a lot of chix-ploitation fun.


Plot Synopsis: When a video-game company creates an immersive gaming environment where players wage war against gigantic sand-dwelling monsters, three gorgeous gals armed to the teeth (Meisa Kuroki, Hinako Saeki and Rinko Kikuchi) accept the challenge and jump into the virtual desert. But as they blaze their way into the game’s higher levels, they face ever-more ferocious foes. Yoshikazu Fujiki also stars in this sci-fi action flick from director Mamoru Oshii.


That just sounds AWESOME.  Will be checking this out.

Moulin Rouge (Bluray)

I remember seeing this in the theatre when it was first released and I was in AWE at the set design and all the cool songs that were re-done for this movie.  This movie was just so beautiful to watch and I am glad it has finally received the HD treatment.  So enter this fantastic world where nothing is forbidden and everything is possible and purchase this movie.

Night of the Demons (2009 Remake)  (Bluray)

This is a remake of the 1980’s horror film about a group of college kids who summon a demon at a party and kills everyone.  This remake is basically the same thing.  A group of kids go to a Halloween party, only to have to face down a group of demons.  If you like Demon movies and tons of gore and boobies, then this is a must own.  I would also purchase the original movie as well.  Just in time for Halloween.

Supplements

  • Writer/director commentary
  • Cast and crew interviews
  • Behind-the-scenes footage

Predators (Bluray)

A mercenary (Adrien Brody) reluctantly leads a group of elite warriors who come to realize they’ve been brought together on an alien planet… as prey. With the notable exception of a disgraced physician, they are all cold-blooded killers—mercenaries, Yakuza, convicts, death squad members—human “predators” that are now being systemically hunted and eliminated by a new breed of alien Predators.

I remember anticipating this film and that Robert Rodriguez was a major producer on this.  This a re-vamp of the original film which starred Arnold, but instead of a Predator coming to Earth, humans go to the Predator planet.  Worth a look and a must have for the fans of the franchise.  I still miss VENTURA in his role.

Psycho: 50th Anniversary Edition (Bluray)

Alfred Hitchock’s masterpiece, “Psycho” finally gets the HD treatment.  This is hands down one of the scariest films of all time.  They built a ride after this film.  This film still scares me and Anthony Perkins is BRILLIANT.

Norman Bates, whose old dark house and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than Marion Crane (Janet Leigh), the ill-fated traveler whose journey ends in the notorious “shower scene.” First a private detective, then Marion’s sister (Ver Miles) searches for her, the horror and the suspense mount to a terrifying climax where the mysterious killer is finally revealed.

This is a must own for any collection.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: 35th Anniversary Edition (Bluray)

One of the greatest cult films of all time gets the HD treatment.  I remember seeing this film when I was about 10 years old and i was forever warped.  Excellent music and young stars such as: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, and Meatloaf make this film what it is…..AMAZING.  They still today all over the country show midnight screenings of this film with audience participation where you can throw stuff at the screen and see actors act out the movie live in front of the screen in synch with the film.  Love this film.

‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show’ is an “erotic nightmare beyond any measure.” Relive Richard O’Brien’s sinfully twisted salute to horror, sci-fi, B-movies and rock music – A “sensual daydream to treasure forever” – starring Tim Curry (in his classic gender-bending performance), Barry Bostwick, and Oscar®-winner Susan Sarandon. Do the “Time Warp” and sing “Hot Patootie” with Meatloaf again…and again…and again. Pull up a slab and let the madness begin!

Seven Samurai: Criterion Collection (Bluray)

One of the greatest films of all time by Akira Kurosawa is about a Japanese farming village, constantly besieged and pillaged by an army of bandits, recruits seven independent samurai to defend it.  This is phenomenal and am very happy to purchase this title AGAIN to get it on BLURAY.  A MUST OWN.

Since the first Iron Man film, Jon Favreau and Marvel have gone to great lengths to show us glimpses of some of our favorite superheroes in subtle ways throughout the Marvel hero films.


Now when we all pick up our copy of Iron Man 2 on bluray/dvd, take a close look and see if you see the references to Captain America, Thor, and Black Panther.


Specifically the scene featuring Tony Stark and Nick Fury discussing the Avengers Initiative, the background of which was littered with an assortment of footage, maps and images hinting at other Marvel properties.


[The first is] from “The Incredible Hulk”, which means Iron Man 2 took place before “The Incredible Hulk.” If you look you see the the crater on the other monitor, that’s the “Thor” thing. That’s where the hammer was recovered. This is just a geek heaven here.

And if you think that anything on this monitors is not something we at Marvel didn’t talk about for hours – you are crazy! See, there is a map up there, so… if you look at those maps, each one of those locations corresponds to something in the Marvel Universe. I’m not supposed to say that.

And if you look on each one, and I know what they mean, but I’m not gonna say it, but I’m gonna say this: Two of them relate to “The First Avenger: Captain America,” one of them relates to “Thor.” The one in Africa relates to Black Panther.

DVD/BLURAY Releases for 3rd Week of September

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2010

This new column will be a weekly post on new DVDS and BLURAYS that are coming out each week. You can read a small description of the release and you can click on the pictures which will send you over to AMAZON so you can purchase the titles for a great discount. Enjoy this week’s titles.

The award winning movie, “American Beauty” that put Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition) and Alan Ball (Six Feet Under/True Blood) on all of our Radars. This is going to look spectacular on bluray. I am looking forward to the commentary track by Mendes and Ball on this release. I loved this movie when it came out in the late 90’s. I cannot believe it has been that long ago. Remember this one best picture at the oscars.

Criterion is like the Neiman Marcus of DVDS. They have the best transfers, audio, and extras out of any DVD. Period. This was released a number of years ago on DVD and now we get the high-def transfer. Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant are amazing in this dark comedic thriller. I highly recommend picking this up.

From the creator of Amelie and City of Lost Children comes the black comedy “Delicatessen”. It came out in 1991 and became an instant cult classic and was favored by tons of critics and the masses. Now we get it in high-def and with some exclusive HD extras including a new retrospective documentary with the director and a behind the scenes featurette and 20 page collectible booklet. Add to that commentary with the director and this is a must buy. This is an amazing crazy little film. A must see.

The Experiment is film that has been kept under the radar for some time now. It stars Adrian Brody and Forest Whitaker. “Adrien Brody and Forest Whitaker star as ordinary men who find themselves transformed by strange circumstances in The Experiment. Tempted by a large paycheck, 26 men agree to be divided into prisoners and guards and placed in a mock prison for two weeks–but within a matter of days, these seemingly sane men have turned the mock prison into a sadistic pressure cooker. The Experiment is in part a remake of a German film, Das Experiment, which was inspired by a psychology experiment conducted at Stanford University in 1971–an experiment sometimes cited as demonstrating an innate human capacity for sadism.” I am looking forward to seeing this. It sounds very interesting and I love the two main actors.

The hilarious television series “Modern Family” makes its home video release debut this Tuesday. I loved this show. It replaced “Arrested Development” for me. I laughed at every episode and found all the characters engaging and hilarious. The 1st season is packed with deleted scenes, deleted family interviews, gag reel, fizbo the clown and a wide variety of behind the scenes featurettes. Definitely worth picking up and if you have not seen the show, you wont be sorry when you get this and watch it.

Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood is a tragic mess. Now don’t get me wrong, it looks beautiful, but as a whole the film is a complete turd. Ridley was so set on making this a factual based movie and making everything authentic. But you know the story of Robin Hood is one of fantasy and wonder and magic. All of that is missing from this film and goes on for way too long and just bored me to death. I will not be watching this again unless the masterminds over at Rifftrax get their hands on it.

That’s it for this week. Stay tuned for next week when I look at Iron Man 2.

I am sure you have heard of ILM before or at least seen it in the credits for just about every movie made.  It is the amazing effects company started by Star Wars creator George Lucas 35 years ago.  It was started to create the effects for Star Wars and quickly became the premiere effects company in Hollywood and is virtually in every film in some form or another.

So the Encore movie channel will be airing a documentary in November about the ILM company.  It will be narrated by Tom Cruise and will feature interviews by major actors and directors.

The press release says:

ENCORE PAYS VISUAL TRIBUTE TO OSCAR®-WINNING VISUAL EFFECTS GIANT ILM IN CELEBRATION OF THEIR 35TH ANNIVERSARY WITH ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY “INDUSTRIAL LIGHT & MAGIC: CREATING THE IMPOSSIBLE”

Tom Cruise Narrates Doc Premiering November 14, 2010
Marathon of Five ILM-Effects Films on Encore

Beverly Hills, CA., September 14, 2010 – Since its founding 35 years ago, Industrial Light & Magic has been the movie industry’s undisputed leader in groundbreaking visual effects, thrilling audiences and making hits into blockbusters. On Sunday, November 14 at 8:00 p.m. (et/pt), Encore presents an original documentary celebrating that legacy. “Industrial Light & Magic: Creating the Impossible” is directed by Academy Award® and Emmy® nominated director Leslie Iwerks and is narrated by Tom Cruise. Encore will also present five ILM-effects films starting at 2:00 p.m. with Jumanji, followed by Hook, Jurassic Park III, Twister and Starship Troopers.

The hour-long special has interviews with filmmakers George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, Ron Howard,  J.J. Abrams and Jon Favreau, actors Samuel L. Jackson and Robin Williams, producer Jerry Bruckheimer and John Lasseter, the chief  creative officer at Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios.  Film and television shows featured in the special include The Abyss, Avatar, Forrest Gump, Jumanji, Jurassic Park, Pirates of the Caribbean, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Robot Chicken, Star Trek (2009), Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Transformers, Twister, Young Sherlock Holmes and The War of the Worlds (2005), which starred narrator Cruise.

Leslie Iwerks’ documentary takes audiences behind the scenes at ILM with in depth interviews with some of the company’s top talent and showcases never before seen footage highlighting many of their pioneering milestones. From creating the first ever computer generated character in a feature film to the latest advancements in visual effects for film franchises like Transformers and Iron Man, ILM has created some of the most memorable movie moments in recent history.

Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) is a division of Lucasfilm Ltd. and was founded by George Lucas in 1975 to create the visual effects for his space epic Star Wars. The studio originated in Van Nuys, California but moved to San Rafael, California to work on The Empire Strikes Back and is now headquartered at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in the Presidio of San Francisco with a sister studio in Singapore.

ILM has worked on nearly 300 films in its 35 year history and has largely been the driving force behind the evolution of modern visual effects.  From the liquid metal man in Terminator 2: Judgment Day to the lifelike digital dinosaurs in Jurassic park, ILM has created some of the most iconic moments in cinematic history.

ILM has received 15 Best Visual Effects Oscars and 25 additional nominations. It has also received 23 Scientific and Technical Awards from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in recognition of the critical role the company’s advances in technology have played in the filmmaking process. ILM is also the only entertainment company to be recognized with the National Medal of Technology.

I just hope it is an depth look at the company and not a broad view of it.  I will be recording it.

Film Review: ‘The Predator’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 11th, 2018

Another reboot to the franchise brings more blood, guts, and humor to one of our favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger 80’s film ‘Predator‘. Now, it’s simply titled ‘THE PREDATOR‘, which vaguely addresses the past two films with zero mention of any characters. Shane Black is at the helm of this distant sequel to the original film, which is interesting, to say the least. Shane was in the first film back in 1987 and played the part of Hawkins who told the funny jokes through the film. Shane went on to write the ‘Lethal Weapon‘ movies, ‘The Monster Squad‘ and more importantly ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘, ‘The Nice Guys‘, and ‘Iron Man 3‘, before taking this on with his fellow ‘Monster Squad‘ collaborator Fred Dekker.

Film Review: ‘Hotel Artemis’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2018

Writer Drew Pearce, best recognized for Iron Man 3 (2013) and Mission ImpossibleRogue Nation (2015), has entered his first directorial credit into the heated competition of summer blockbusters. Set up with a unique concept of a secret hotel/emergency-room for criminals in futuristic Los Angeles, ‘Hotel Artemis’ sounds promising on paper, right? But upon execution, the result is a mediocre thriller whose only saving grace is the appearance of Jeff Goldblum and a few comical one-liners from supporting cast.

Ethan Hawke has ’24 Hours To Live’ on Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 12th, 2018

Why did this movie not get a major theatrical release? I have no idea. This movie called ‘24 Hours To Live‘ stars Ethan Hawk and produced by the guys who helped make ‘John Wick‘. I mean, this has gold written all over it. Not sure what bonus features will be available, but there is none listed at the moment. Let’s hope that changes. You can currently see the film On Demand, but the Blu-ray will be available on February 6th.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

Hey guys, Jana here,

mv5bnze1mzqwmjaznf5bml5banbnxkftztgwmtazmdqwode-_v1_

In the world of reboots, ‘Predator‘ is a new one that can be put at the top of the list of “But why?” In all fairness, it’s labeled as both a reboot and a sequel, but it makes me happier to think about this film as a continuation of the first film. What the project does have going for it, is Shane Black has signed on to direct and Benicio Del Toro is eyeing the project to star.

Hey guys, Jana here,

from-the-jungle-book-to-comic-books-jon-favreau-is-returning-to-marvel-938989

Jon Favreau has a strong presence in the movie-making world. He’s been in front of the camera, behind the camera, writing the lines and doing nearly everything else, at one point, to bring us the cinematic joys we gladly line up for. In our stadium seats with our overpriced popcorn, jumbo sodas and Mike and Ike’s, we get swept away into a world that, sometimes fortunately, is not the one we’ll walk back to, squinting in the daylight after experiencing the action, drama, laughs, epic heights and drastic lows a well-instructed cast has just delivered, and Favreau is among the best at drawing those emotions from a cast.

Film Review: ‘Learning to Drive’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2015

Janet W., Here…

Learning-to-Drive-Movie

Learning to Drive opens at the completion of driving instruction with Darwan Singh Tur (Sir Ben Kingsley) speaking words of wisdom and reality to his student driver.  Next we are guided through a typical day of a hardworking Indian in America.  Two jobs and a house full of relatives/friends from his village, Darwan is a stereotype of who Indians are.  I do not like stereotypes whether factual or not.  People are curvy (multi-faceted) and should not be pressed into any particular box/label.  However, in Learning to Drive, I see the Indian stereotype treated with honor and maybe even understanding.  I do not follow the Sikh religion nor do I understand it, but the worship was portrayed with reverence.

Picture this:  You are dying from a fatal malady.  Are you ready to leave the earth?  Have you planned the last things you would do?  Have you said goodbye to those you love?  You realize you will never see them again, right?  These surely were at least some of the thoughts flowing through the mind of Damian (Sir Ben Kingsley).

The success of ‘The Lego Movie‘ ignited a storm of sequels that Warner Bros. have slated for production including ‘Ninjago‘ in 2016, ‘The Lego Batman Movie’ the following year in 2017 and ‘The Lego Movie 2‘ in 2018, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for one more spinoff based on the yellow blocky people, ‘Billion Brick Race‘.

Sony Pictures is basically putting everything behind their revived ‘Ghostbusters‘ project. We all know that Paul Feig (‘Freaks and Geeks‘, ‘Bridesmaids‘) is making ‘Ghostbusters III‘ with an all female cast including Kristen Wiig, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. But now it seems that Sony has much bigger plans for ‘Ghostbusters‘.

Film Review: ‘Stonehearst Asylum’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

stonehearst_asylum

Stonehearst Asylum opens out of focus until a professor (Brendan Gleeson) begins his lecture on treating hysterics and lunatics.  Enters the first patient in rags and disheveled hair, Eliza Graves (Kate Beckinsale).  She is weak, helpless, and maintains that she is of sane mind.  However, with a poke in her lower back, Eliza is sent into convulsions due to her fear of being emotionally and physically touched, which the professor states as proof of her insanity.  Eliza is sent back and another patient comes that we do not get to see.  Flash forward to a forest in the winter.  A nerdy stranger is trudging through the woods and hitches a ride to Stonehearst Asylum.  He tells Mickey Finn (David Thewlis), the chief steward that he is Dr. Edward Newgate (Jim Sturgess) and he wishes to practice asylum medicine.

Dominic West and Guy Pearce Join ‘Genius’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 26th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

334078

 

There has already been some talk about a new biopic of sorts based on the life of Scribner’s iconic editor Max Perkins. Perkins worked with such literary notables as F. Scott Fitzgerald, Thomas Wolfe and Ernest Hemmingway. In hearing tales of how these respected authors worked, the amount of difficulty friends and family had with some, I can only imagine the set of balls it would take to be the one forced with fact-checking, making corrections and offering changes in whole to the manuscripts. The flip-side of the downfalls to the job is that the editor is allowed to nurture and encourage talent in it’s various forms. This is precisely what Perkins did, and what will pique the curiosity of viewers the world over.

Shane Black Tackles ‘The Destroyer’ for Sony!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Shane-Black

 

Everyone has favorite directors or writers and Shane Black has been one of mine since I fell in love with his work in the late 80’s. The first character that took my breath away was Martin Riggs from ‘Lethal Weapon‘, he also wrote ‘The Monster Squad‘ and gave birth to the line that any true 80’s child will say when they hear that film name – “Wolfman’s got nards!”  That’s when I took note of Shane Black and thought he was an under-rated gem in the writing world. That was quickly followed up with ‘The Last Boyscout‘ and ‘Last Action Hero’ films that supported the original idea that Black was talented and the first films were NOT a fluke.  Black then proved his mettle as a director/writer with the snarky offering into the world of noir with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘. This was Robert Downey Jr’s love song to Hollywood that signified the turning point of his career from troubled actor, to serious phenomenon ready to be taken seriously. Black gave him the direction and the words and RDJ slammed the ball out of the park. Black’s latest foray into directing came from ‘Iron Man 3‘ when he re-teamed with RDJ. He has 3 other projects in the wind at the moment with ‘The Nice Guys‘ a ‘Predator‘ reboot and ‘Doc Savage‘.

Hey guys, it’s Jana.

Gosling Crowe

Let’s play a little game called ‘A few of my favorite things’. That’s right – YOU get a car! You get a car and yes, YOU GET A CAR! OK, so not quite like that. You don’t have to worry about my stating anything  about “Raindrops on Roses”.  My list begins with Burt Reynolds’ laugh, Comic BooksBeethoven – Preferably Piano Sonata No. 8 ‘Pathetique’ in C minor, all 3 movements, Good music. Not just ‘eh’ kind of music, but GREAT music, Led Zeppelin, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Harry Connick, Jr.,  and the amazing Shane Black’s movies.

Added into that list is cute boys that can sing. Russell Crowe happens to fit that bill. I’ve no idea if Ryan Gosling can sing or not, but he is fun to look at. Crowe and Gosling have signed on board for a police drama ‘The Nice Guys‘ with ‘Iron Man 3‘ director Shane Black putting his vision to film.

Jackie Chan’s Next Film Will Be ‘Skiptrace’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 6th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

rush1

This sounds a little bit too familiar. Jackie Chan is set to star with Fan Bingbing in ‘Skiptrace‘, which will be directed by Sam Fell. Chan has been out of the comedy/action spotlight for a little while now and some might welcome his return into the genre. This project is based off an idea of Chan, which is funny, because it sounds exactly like three of his previous films.

Marvel Studios has not let up one bit with prepping new films for more characters in their universe.  We do know that we will be getting a treasure trove of new superhero films over the next few years, which will lead up to ‘The Avengers 2‘ in 2015, which Marvel is calling Phase Two.  I guess Phase One started with the first ‘Iron Man‘ and ended with ‘The Avengers‘.
