Hey guys, Jana here,

mv5bmtuxmzc4mtkwof5bml5banbnxkftztgwote5mdcymdi-_v1_

IMDB describes this film as “The continuing adventures of former hitman, John Wick.” I have a feeling that will be changing after seeing this trailer. If you’re anything like me, I’ve been waiting for this clip for as long as I’ve known they were creating a sequel. Keanu can kick ass and I love nothing more than to see that. The first official trailer for the film shows us just how much of a bad-ass Mr. Reeves is, as he’s got a contract on his head.

We had the distinct honor to talk with the iconic and legendary actor Keanu Reeves in Austin, TX at Fantastic Fest 2014.Of course Mr. Reeves is a man of great range as he has performed Shakespeare, and has been in some of the biggest movies of all time including ‘The Matrix‘ trilogy. He was also in ‘Bill and Ted‘ and ‘Parenthood‘ amongst many many other fantastic films. We discuss his new film ‘John Wick‘ and how much fun he had on set fighting the bad guys. We also discuss some of his favorite scenes in film. It was a pleasure to talk with him and go see ‘John Wick‘. Enjoy!

Keanu Reeves’ Next Project – ‘Rain’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

keanu

 

 

When I think about actors that view what they do as art and pick projects based on the quality of the story, eschewing the traditional methods of choosing being based on pay, Keanu Reeves is at the top of the list. He’s made it known that he isn’t interested in fame or money. His film choices reflect that.

Hi, Bryan Here….

We have been talking about a third film for ‘Bill and Ted’ for what seems like a year now.  We have heard from both Keanu and Alex about how they want to do a third film and how they are working on a story for it.  Well, it seems all the work has paid off as there will be a third film.  Both Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves are attached to star with Dean Parisot to direct.  Parisot was responsible for ‘Galaxy Quest’.

Keanu Reeves Says “Bill & Ted 3” Coming Soon!!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 5th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Keanu Reeves has let the “cat out of the bag”.  He has confirmed that the “Bill and Ted 3” script is about six weeks away from being finished and that they have original Bill and Ted writers Chris Matheson and Ed Solomon back writing the third script.  This is just fucking awesome. I am so excited for a third Bill and Ted film, but the first two films were so good and still hold up to this day.  I would hate for a third one that didn’t work since the first two films were pretty much perfect.  Check out the interview with Keanu below from MTV.

‘Siberia’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2018

Keanu Reeves is one of the most fun and best actors around. We all love him in a variety of films and we can’t wait until the next installments of ‘John Wick‘ and ‘Bill and Ted‘. In between these films, it’s really hit or miss with the movies Keanu chooses, but one thing is and will always be true – Keanu Reeves is a badass and a great actor. So ‘Siberia‘ is his most recent film that probably took a couple of weeks to shoot and I’ll compare it to Leo DiCaprio’s ‘Blood Diamond’ movie because it has Keanu Reeves in the diamond business under shady and dangerous conditions.

4K UHD Review: ‘The Matrix’!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 25th, 2018

THE FILM


There are only a handful of times where a single film completely flips the entire cinema world upside down and becomes the landmark and milestone for future movies and filmmakers in the decades to come. In 1999, the filmscape was forever changed with a sci-fi action movie called ‘The Matrix‘ by the Wachowski siblings. Nobody had ever heard of the filmmaking duo before and there was not a single soul in the world that though Keanu Reeves would become the action star he became after this movie, but it all worked out well and drove a ton of creative people to think, philosophize, and create even more work based on ‘The Matrix‘.

‘The Matrix’ is coming to 4K UHD!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2018

I’m ready to go down the rabbit hole with Neo once again and learn Kung-Fu and take out robots. The 1999 sci-fi epic ‘The Matrix‘ is finally coming to 4K UHD on May 22nd. The new UHD transfer was supervised Bill Pope himself. The new transfer will come with HDR10 and Dolby Vision, which is just going to be glorious on every level. I can’t wait. Not only that, there will be a Dolby Atmos track, which I bet will be one of the best sounding discs on the market. There will be no new extras unfortunately, but most of the previous bonus features will be transferred over to this release, including the commentary tracks and more.

Hey guys, Jana here, 

Can one possibly get enough ‘John Wick‘? The answer to that question is “Hell No!!!” Well Starz and Lionsgate TV have joined forces to bring us ‘The Continental‘, an serial adaptation of the films inspired by the film and occasionally featuring the Baba Yaga himself, Keanu Reeves. It will be set in the universe created for 2014’s juggernaut ‘John Wick‘ and the 2017 sequel ‘John Wick: Chapter 2‘. These films established a dynamic world and more than got the ball rolling to make audiences demand more. There is a tertiary film in the series standing in pre-production now, eyeing a 2019 release date.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Atomic Blonde’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 9th, 2017

THE FILM


This film portion is written by Dan Moran.

Atomic Blonde isn’t a perfect movie. It has an overly complex plot and is about 20 minutes longer than it needs to be, but all of that is overcome by some of the best action sequences in recent memory with an absolutely badass performance by Charlize Theron.

The New Original Netflix Movie To the Bone has a Trailer!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

to-the-bone---still-1_31631913971_o-h_2017

Netflix has a new original movie they are releasing on their streaming platform on July 14th called To The Bone that stars Lily Collins and Keanu Reeves. Don’t expect John Wick to walk in and start offing people or Ted Theodore Logan to start playing the guitar here. This is on a more serious note, which follows a young woman named Ellen (Lily Collins), who suffers from severe anorexia and enters a group recovery home in a last ditch effort to get better and survive. There, a fun and unconventional doctor (Keanu Reeves) will learn how to conquer the awfulness of anorexia.

The John Wick Comic Book is Almost Here!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 20th, 2017

Hi  everyone, Bryan here….

JohnWick01-Cov-B-Cowan

We already knew that the comic book publisher Dynamite Entertainment had already worked a deal to bring the story of John Wick into the comic book world, but now we have a release date, writers, artists, and even some info on the story. John Wick is one of the best action films of recent memory. It spawned a recent sequel with both films making a ton of money and much critical praise. Not only does John Wick have spectacular stunt work and one hell of a story that follows a former assassin out to kill the people he once worked for, but this mysterious world John Wick is in has been living in is one that we’ve gotten glimpses of in the past two films, leaving us wanting more. This comic book will explore that world in more detail, which means more information on assassins, the hotels, and people who handle their business. I can’t wait.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #1!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

maxresdefault

Here’s a new addition to the Boomstick Comics lineup – Favorite Movie Scene of the Day! If you’ve seen any of my interviews with filmmakers or actors, one questions I never forget to ask is What is your favorite scene in a movie that has always stuck with you? Everyone gives different answers and they are always caught off guard and have some fun answering this particular question. Just look how much fun Keanu Reeves had answering the question. It’s different than answering “What is your favorite movie?”, because it allows you to think to a specific moment in a film that really connected with you that you never seem to forget, quote, cry over, or laugh at. So I hope to bring some excellent scenes from movies that you’ve forgotten or haven’t seen in a long while in hopes of rekindling a relationship of passion with your favorite movies and characters. This is #1

Blu-ray Review: John Wick 2

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

51kbWQ1BmfL

THE FILM

Ever since Keanu Reeves jumped into the role of John Wick in 2014, we all have wanted a sequel in the worst way. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch created a monster of a franchise with that film that brought the action genre back to a high point. That first film had a simple story and some of the best action sequences in a long time. Some bad guys steal John Wick’s car and kill his precious puppy dog a few days after his wife dies. Not knowing John Wick is the best assassin in the world, Wick sets out on revenge and literally kills everybody. It was just so good and showed the world what everyone secretly wants to do if some jerk killed your dog. The first film had a modest budget of only $20 million, but ended up making almost $90 million, which leads us to future sequels.

THE FILM

When you say the name Jordan Peele, you would most likely think of the brilliant comedic stylings of Key and Peele or Peele’s time on MadTV. You might even crack a big smile, thinking of Peele’s recent film Keanu. But I’m willing to bet you wouldn’t think of the words “horror maestro” when you see Jordan Peele’s name come across the screen. And that’s exactly what Peele can add to his resume résumé with his new movie Get Out, which he wrote and directed for the genre mogul Blumhouse.

Warner Bros. Wants to Remake ‘The Matrix’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 14th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

The-Matrix

Warner Bros. is at a loss for original ideas, so they are wanting to get back to 1999 when ‘The Matrix‘ was releasing, because in fact, they want to remake ‘The Matrix‘. This is a terrible idea. There are tons of original stories and ideas out there. Get after it Warner Bros. Sources close to the project have said that a remake of ‘The Matrix‘ is in the works, which isn’t necessarily new news, since we reported on this a couple of years ago. It wasn’t so much of a remake back then, but maybe an expanse on the storyline or even a sequel.

Favorite Films of 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!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

I’m just so excited that we are getting a sequel to the AMAZING action film from 2014 ‘John Wick‘. This time, the title is Chapter 2 and has Keanu Reeves taking out the bad guys yet again. Chad Stahelski has come back to direct, but left his other directing partner behind this time, where most of the action takes place in Rome in this sequel. We were promised bigger and better (if that were a possibility since the first film was perfect), and judging by this trailer, every delivered on a big level.

Another year has come and gone and brought with it about a billion movies, some were total crap and a waste of time, but others…oh they were worth every bit of time I spent. Pre-movie hype, post-movie discussion, and the random hours I spent thinking about it in the shower or sitting at a stop-light.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

You know you can’t wait for ‘John Wick 2‘! Keanu Reeves and the filmmakers certainly surprised us with ‘John Wick‘, which is where a man goes on a killing rampage after a bunch of jerks kill his dog and steal his car. It’s basically what we would all want to do if someone did that to us. Most people are returning for the sequel that will have Wick (Reeves) take out a bunch of bad guys again, which the filmmakers from the first film did an excellent job with their cameras and story. It was one of the best action films in a long time. Read the review HERE!

Top 10 Horribly Cheesy Scenes in Otherwise Decent Movies!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2015

Paul N., Here…

DirtyDancing3-lg

I am not claiming that all of the following movies are cinematic works of art. Some of these films might be considered mediocre at best. However, they do all have one thing in common; all of them suffer from having that one scene that takes audiences out of the moment and makes them groan in disbelief.  This list includes movies that were meant to be taken seriously. So over-the-top comedies and machismo action flicks will not be found as they are created with the intent of being ridiculous.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

THE FILM

Dragonwolf‘ is a typical martial arts film in a lot of ways. If you want something slightly entertaining with fight scenes, this will do nicely. If you’re hell-bent on seeing quality fights, pick up a Bruce Lee flick. Watching this made me so sad though, I really wanted to like this. The finished product doesn’t even deserve an entry to my ‘Eh’ category. You know what I mean, “Hey ‘Dragonwolf‘ is on, wanna watch it?” “Eh, why not?”

Remember all those times you made fun of Keanu Reeves?  Well get ready to eat your words you nonbelievers!  Reeves is fixin to show you what pain is for 90 minutes of gun shooting neck breaking knife stabbing throat crunching action! The plot is as timeless a tale as our childhood stories of yesteryear.  Who doesn’t remember that lovable parable about the old retired hitman who gets wronged by the Russian mob….oh….well anyways, that’s the plot.  It is an incredibly simple setup for a fantastic revenge story.

Top Ten List of Technology from Films We Need Now!!

Sometimes, when we watch movies (even bad ones), we look at the technology used and think to ourselves “man, I really need that in my life”. The following is a list of the ten most “give it to me now” technological advances from cinema. This does not mean that the following movies are good, but that the technology used in them is highly desirable. To avoid the list becoming too narrow in focus (like weapons only), or convoluted by tech from one franchise (like Star Trek), the following list has a range of tech from weapons to medical gadgets, each from a completely different movie or franchise.

These two names have been paired since 1989 when they posed as Bill & Ted on an Excellent Adventure.

Film Review: ‘John Wick’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

John Wick Movie

It’s been a long while since we’ve received a balls out action movie that works on every level. Luckily for us, filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch have concocted one hell of a brutal, fun, and highly entertaining action film, starring the man, the myth, the legend Keanu Reeves. If you’ve been bored with your action movie choices as of lately, don’t worry, ‘John Wick‘ is the ultimate action flick of the year. Sure, it’s a story that you’ve seen many times before, and I’m sure you’ll see many times after this one, but ‘John Wick‘ is filmed so well, has great performances, and is as brutal as you would hope in a gut wrenching action film, that you’ll leave the theater fully satisfied and wanting a ‘John Wick‘ franchise.

When Roland Emmerich’s name is mentioned, it’s usually attached to a feature film that is underway, has wrapped or being promoted. This isn’t the case. Emmerich is directing and exec producing ‘New Angeles‘, by comic book writer Gregg Hurwitz, for the small screen. This is a new project combining Slingshot Global Media, Emmerich’s Centropolis banner and Keanu Reeves and Stephen Hamel of Company Films. The best-selling novelist and comic book writer, Hurwitz will write the script but also have an exec producer position. “Gregg is an incredibly imaginative writer, and I’m looking forward to bringing his ideas for the show to life,” Emmerich said. “It’s exciting to get the opportunity (to) bring a massive project like this to the small screen with a rapidly changing television space.”

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

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.

Gerard Butler Drops Out of ‘Point Break’ Remake!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on May 7th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

gerard-butler-photo-16

Gerard Butler has moved back onto my ‘Oh, I love him’ list. Butler took up permanent residence on that list from the time I saw his chiseled, gorgeous features in ‘300‘. Then I elevated him to crazy heights after I saw his turn as Phantom and heard a gorgeous voice. Then the love affair came to an unfortunate fork in the road when I learned the horrible truth that Butler planned to take a role that Patrick Swayze made his own as Bodhi  in ‘Point Break‘. Luke Bracey is still set to play FBI agent Johnny Utah originally brought to life by a post Wyld Stallyns Keanu Reeves.

More ‘Matrix’ Movies Are On The Horizon!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 2nd, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

damatrix

 Back in 1999, the Wachowski siblings brought us into a new world called ‘The Matrix‘. It was one of the best sci-fi movies to come out in several decades. It truly changed the way stories were told and even how movies were made. Several years later, we got two ‘Matrix‘ sequels back to back. And while those two were no where near the caliber of the first film, they were still fun, and became a solid trilogy. Now it seems the Warner Bros. and the Wachowski siblings are developing more ‘Matrix‘ films.

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.

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 26th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Warner Bros. and DC Comics have teamed up yet again. This time it’s for a television show based on the comic book ‘Constantine‘. If you remember, a few years ago, Keanu Reeves starred as John Constantine, based on the same book. This particular series will be headed to NBC with David S. Goyer and Daniel Cerone serving as writer and producer.

The Top 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

085 - Evil Ed

I love making lists. Grocery lists. Bucket lists. Holiday lists. Favorite movie lists. Favorite VAMPIRE movie lists. I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? This is MY list of the top 20 Vampire movies ever made. Why did I point out that it was MY list? Easy. So you read this knowing it wasn’t an Academy vote that got a movie on this list. No one paid me to promote their movie. However, I’m NOT against this, just to be clear. Why spend time putting movies in a list? Maybe it satisfies some Freudian lack of paternal affection I suffered as a child. But the real answer is, “Why wouldn’t I make a list as awesome as this?”

Hi, Bryan Here….

I think Guillermo Del Toro might just be the coolest guy on the planet, next to Tom Waits.  His new epic film ‘Pacific Rim’ is testing through the roof, we hear and Warner Bros. is so happy about it, they want Guillermo to make all their films.  Warner offered Guillermo to direct a feature adaptation of the tv series ‘V’ and a sequel to ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’.  But we hear that Guillermo wants to do his own version of a film like ‘The Avengers’ or ‘The Justice League’.

The Top 20 Female Badasses In Film/TV!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan and Lisa S. Here…..

9d8c1968aa60cdb4dca86ed6790187e2

 

I had some help writing this article with writer, Lisa S.   Lisa hails from netherworld of the Northwest and is not above watching zombie movies for 24 hours straight.  She loves all kinds of scary movies and is an avid music fan.  You might even find her perusing the used DVD bin at your local movie store looking for old Ernest movies and Sifl and Olly discs.  Lisa helped quite a bit with this article and you can expect her read many more of her articles on this site from this point forward.  Give her a warm welcome and visit her online book and record store HERE.

Now let’s get to the list.  Here are Boomstick’s Top 20 Female Badasses in film and television.  I tried to keep it in the horror/sci-fi genre, but a couple of action star made it in there.  These females are the most hardcore we feel, by how much ass they kick, their courage, and their sex appeal.  We dare you to find better role models and badasses than this.  Enjoy the list.

If Bill and Ted travel through time again…..??

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 30th, 2010

This past weekend at the New Beverly in L.A., a double feature of Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure and Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey was screened and was SOLD OUT.  As it should be.  Bill (Alex Winter) was there live in person to introduce the films and do a Q & A.

Someone asked if there was going to be a third film and Alex said that he and Keanu and Ed Solomon have been brainstorming ideas and that they want to make an amazing third film and not a crappy one like so many sequels these days.  That had ideas even to make a rated R third film.  If they come up with a story that was worth making it will definitely happen.

I can’t express how badly I want a third Bill and Ted film.  Sadly there will be no George Carlin, but to see these characters on screen in a new adventure would rock my geek world.

Let me know what you would like to see in a third Bill and Ted movie.
