Hey guys, Jana here,

Actor Josh Duhamel poses for a portrait on Wednesday, Jan. 27, 2016, in New York. He lives in Los Angeles now, but Duhamel is helping to boost tourism for his home state of North Dakota by appearing in a series of funny ads this year.  (Photo by Scott Gries/Invision/AP)

The ‘Transformers‘ franchise has been at a low point for me over the last few films, maybe it was the director, maybe it was the story line, regardless of the reason, the next film in the tunnel has some news that is a little more exciting. Director Michael Bay is returning for the fifth installment with Josh Duhamel.

You might know this guy by his given name of Vince Curatola, if you’re like me though, you yelled “It’s Johnny Sack!” before you read the rest of the article. I’m a proud product of an HBO education and ‘The Sopranos‘ was my meat and potatoes. Curatola was absolutely perfect as Johnny Sack and was always being accused of being part of a certain Italian-American subculture. Now he’s found another role that seems cherry picked for him in CBS FIlms and Lionsgate’s project about the Boston Marathon bombing, ‘Patriots Day‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Ted_Movie_Photo_08

While Mark Wahlberg was on Anderson Cooper’s show today, promoting ‘Broken City‘, somebody asked if there was going to be a sequel to ‘Ted‘, which is Wahlberg’s biggest grossing movie to date, and is one of the top grossing ‘R’ rated films out there, if not the number 1 spot.  Well, he confirmed it, saying it’s a done deal and that Seth MacFarlane is already working on script for the sequel.

Hi Bryan Here….

You know what’s awful?  Writing two stories back to back about Michael Bay.  But I guess, he is unstoppable right now.  In addition to the 4th ‘Transformers’ film, Michael Bay will be directing ‘Pain and Gain’.  Yeah you read that right.  What a shitty title.  The film will star Marky Mark of the Funky Bunch and the People’s Champ, Dwayne The Rock Johnson.

Hi Bryan Here….

Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe are teaming up to star in  an Allen Hughes-directed independently financed noir drama ‘Broken City’.  “Wahlberg plays an ex-cop-turned-private detective who is hired by the mayor (the role Crowe will play) to see if his wife is cheating on him. The private eye confirms those suspicions, and when the mayor’s wife’s cheating partner ends up dead, the private eye immerses himself in the mayor’s business and uncovers a real estate scandal that involves the poll dealing himself choice city-owned properties.”

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Transformers The Last Knight - Prime

 

Exploding onto our screens without regard for the narrative or progressive plot structure, comes Transformers: The Last Knight.  True Michael Bay lovers could care less or would even notice the story’s lack of cohesion with this sequel.  They are there for the cool special effects, radical cinematography, and rich hues that make up Michael Bay’s style.

Dan M., here….

screen-shot-2017-01-11-at-11-31-05-am

FULL DISCLOSURE: I was born in Massachusetts (moved in middle school) love all the sports teams and have close to 40 families members in and around the outskirts of Boston. The only reason I disclose this is because I watched the news closely during this whole ordeal, read two books on the events/survivors, and caught the excellent HBO doc that premiered late last year. I’m not an expert on the event but I feel like I know a bit more than a casual viewer. Most importantly I wasn’t there. I don’t know anyone who was lost. I can’t imagine what it is like to see a tragic event in your life monetized into a film so I am reviewing this strictly as a fan of movies and how it was portrayed as a movie. The politics, timing, and ramifications of turning events like this into films are for others to debate.

Film Review: ‘Ted 2’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 25th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

04

Who would have thought that Seth MacFarlane’s (creator of ‘Family Guy‘) first feature film about a pot-smoking foul-mouthed teddy bear would have made over $550 million at the box office back in 2012? I certainly didn’t expect it, but it’s the sole reason why we have the sequel to ‘Ted‘, simply titled ‘Ted 2‘. I’ll be honest with you. Macfarlane did a fantastic job with the first film, making an ‘R’ rated comedy with heart and enough laughs that are still memorable today. He even threw in some great cameos and nods to pop culture references, much like ‘Family Guy‘ does.

Film Review: ‘Entourage’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 2nd, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

maxresdefault

It’s very rare that HBO takes one of their tv series and turns them into a feature length film. It’s only happened a couple of times since HBO has been in the original programming business. There was ‘Sex and the City‘ and if you want to count ‘Tenacious D‘ and ‘Tales From The Crypt‘, go ahead. Other than those three shows, no series on the network has made its way to the big screen until now with ‘Entourage‘.

I’m not sure if this is quite the best news, but Tim Burton (‘Beetlejuice‘) will direct a live-action remake of ‘Dumbo‘ for Disney. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of ‘Dumbo‘, it follows a baby circus elephant who is bullied because of his giant ears, which give him special abilities. The original film came out in 1941.

We’ve been telling you for quite some time now that everyone’s favorite foul-mouthed teddy bear, ‘Ted‘ is coming back to the big screen. Well we have the first trailer for you, and it looks just as raunchy and hilarious as the first film. Mark Wahlberg is back, but I didn’t see Mila Kunis anywhere this time. But, Amanda Seyfried and Morgan Freeman show up. There is an excellent Samuel L. Jackson joke and everyone’s worst nightmare at a sperm donation center. I can’t wait to see this. Enjoy the trailer. ‘Ted 2‘ opens June 26th.

There are three kinds of people in the world:  the overachiever, the underachiever, and the one that does just enough to not fail or threaten the other two.  Associate Professor of Literature James “Jim” Bennett (Mark Wahlberg) is on the precipice of changing his type.  Born of privilege, Jim is used to his mother (Jessica Lange) and her money saving the day.  He would gamble far above his earnings but the debt would be paid.  Something changes though.

I’m not sure why there was an idiotic woman behind me, applauding and yelling “Woooo”, every time an autobot was on screen, but it happened throughout Michael Bay’s fourth installment of his ‘Transformers‘ franchise. Let me assure you, there is absolutely NOTHING to applaud or cheer for in ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction‘. If you weren’t sure if Michael Bay couldn’t get any worse as a filmmaker, think again. He outdoes himself here and tries to throw all of his tricks into one bag, leaving us with a film that can only be described as ‘shit with big explosions’.

So here is the fourth film of ‘The Transformers‘ franchise from Michael Bay, who has basically rebooted his own series. And yes, Steven Spielberg is still producing to make a few extra bucks. But don’t count on Shia LaBeouf running around screaming in this one. Instead, you’ll have Mark Wahlberg (who was in Bay’s ‘Pain and Gain‘) trying to save the day. Hopefully there is a scene of him rapping and dancing.  Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller and Ken Watanabe also star. You can expect a lot of explosions and chaos, but not much else. The film opens up June 27th.  Enjoy.

Haley Joel Osment Joins ‘Entourage’!!

Jana B. here,

haley-loel-osment-2011

Haley Joel Osment is a name that is said pretty much in the same sentence as “Have you seen ‘The Sixth Sense‘? You know the one that kid Haley Joel Osment is in?” For me, he kind of dropped off the radar since the flop that was ‘A.I.: Artificial Intelligence‘ and the mildly successful ‘Secondhand Lions‘ in 2003. Turns out he has voiced a slew of video game characters and has been in some movies I’ve never heard the name of. Osment is currently finishing up production on the Kevin Smith-directed comedy ‘Tusk‘ that is expected to release this fall.

Drugs and addiction is a terrible thing. A terrible-terrible thing. And eventually, they took the life of one of the greatest actors ever to grace the big screen. I hate to write that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has passed away earlier this Sunday of a heroine drug overdose.

Film Review: ‘Lone Survivor’!!

Hi, Bryan Here…

lone-survivor-movie-poster-8

Rounding out the end of the year is yet another survival story with Peter Berg’sLone Survivor‘. This intense and gritty true account of the failed mission of a Navy SEALs raid in Afghanistan packs a strong punch, even though you know only one person makes it out alive like the title suggests. The real life Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is are lone survivor here, and we can compare this film to plenty other movies that take place in the Middle East where a mission has gone wrong, but Berg pulls out all of the stops with this story, and not only gives us an hour and a half of sheer brutality, but also gives us some great character camaraderie and tender moments to connect with these honorable soldiers. With the amount of movies out this holiday weekend, I don’t see this one trumping the box office, but might make a medium-sized dent.

All it took was Mark Wahlberg calling out a few people on camera for being pricks, and a few days later, ‘Entourage‘ the film finally gets a greenlight from the studio. You see, for the past year or more, an ‘Entourage‘ big screen adaptation was in the works, but some of the stars of the show were holding out for a big pay day, thus delaying the movie. Well it seems that now, all things have been settled, and the film is moving on.

Surprisingly, I had a lot of fun with this action-crime thriller from Baltasar Kromakur, who previously worked on ‘ContrabandMark Wahlberg. I didn’t expect much from this seemingly stale film, but once the end credit sequence started rolling, I only could hope for a sequel and for Denzel Washington and Wahlberg to say ‘Yes’ to more films together, as their on-screen chemistry is the best I’ve seen in a long while. In what could be an off-shoot version of ‘Bad Boys‘, ‘2 Guns‘ packs a lot of explosions, gunfire, and laughs to garner a second viewing. The trailers do not do this film justice, and I’m hoping for a sizable dent in the box office this weekend with this entertaining “shoot-em-up”.

Michael Bay made a film for $25 million over the past year. This is a budget that he hasn’t had since  his first film ‘Bad Boys‘ in 1995. Between then and now, he has epic $100 million dollar budgets and is known for his horrible filmmaking and amazing explosions and car chases. The $25 million movie in question is called ‘Pain & Gain‘ and is a true story as it tells us on screen, which is very difficult to believe while watching what happens during its two hour run time.

‘Ted’ is hilariously funny.  I didn’t expect it to be as humorous as it was, but I busted a gut from start to finish.  I’m not a huge ‘Family Guy’ fan. so I admit, I was a bit apprehensive to watch a feature film written and directed by Seth MacFarlane.  I was quite surprised as to how warm and witty it was.  After the first 15 minutes or so of seeing an animated teddy-bear come to life, I really didn’t see it as a teddy-bear, but rather an actual person.  MacFarlane captured a genuine and heartwarming film with an ultra raunchy and vulgar kick at every turn.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Broken City Movie

I was majorly impressed with Allen Hughes of the Hughes brothers ‘Broken City‘. I’ve seen a lot of political crime dramas before, but none like this.  This particular story dives into the deep dark corners of politics and the police force in New York City at the end of a big mayoral election. I’m calling it now. Brian Tucker’s debut screenplay deserves at least an Oscar nomination for next year.  This multi layered drama and its intense characters made this film shine above the rest in its genre.

I’m the first to say that I am NOT  a fan of ‘Family Guy’ or ‘American Dad’, but this Seth MacFarlane project starring Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, and a part of Seth MacFarlane looks fucking GREAT!  The film is called ‘Ted‘ and follows John Bennett (Mark Wahlberg), a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish…and has refused to leave his side ever since.  The results are astounding.  Plus the teddy bear sounds a lot like Peter Griffin.

A Brooklyn detective (Wahlberg) is hired to discover the identity of the mayor’s (Crowe) wife’s (Zeta-Jones) lover, only to have the lover turn up dead. This turns into a bigger, much more personal conspiracy that the detective finds himself embroiled in. The raw acting power here is palpable.

We have done quite a bit of coverage on this project over the last few months.  At one point David O. Russell was slated to be the director of the adapted video game, but dropped out.  Since Russell dropped out, Sony has been hot and heavy in pursuit of a new director.  Needless to say they have high hopes and intentions for this film.  Well, Sony finally has decided on a director, and he is Neil Burger.

Now I am not a huge fan of Family Guy or The Cleveland Show or American Dad, but some of the jokes in those shows are decent, I just think they are held back by basic cable to show its true potential.

I think Seth McFarlane is a comedic genius though and given the right crew and script, he can come out with something truly amazing.

Well it seems that Seth has been asked to make a hard “R” comedy called Ted.  Ted stands for Teddy Bear.

It is suppose to be a big budget filthy rated “R” comedy about an adult male’s sentient, drug addicted, womanizing Teddy Bear.

They are in talks with Mark Wahlberg to play the lead role.  Which I think is great.  Wahlberg has great comedic timing.

Looking forward to seeing what all comes of this.

The Remake of The Crow Will Star…..

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2010

It seems that the head execs in charge of remaking the franchise, “The Crow” have put out an offer to none other than Mark Wahlberg.

No word yet on whether or not he will accept this offer, but time will tell.

I think this is a very interesting choice.  Not a poor choice by any means, but an interesting an weird choice.

Nick Cave (Yes that Nick Cave) has written a brutal screenplay and Wahlberg just doesn’t scream out tortured soul to me.  I mean I love his work in a lot of his movies, but I would like to see what other choices are out there  before Wahlberg says YES.

Who would you want as THE CROW?

Boardwalk Empire Has Been Renewed for a 2nd Season

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2010

I knew this show would be a hit.  It was so well done.  Read my review of the first episode HERE.

HBO has ordered a 2nd season of Boardwalk Empire already.  No word on a premiere date or number of episodes, but it is in stone.  Also the premiere of the 1st episode this past Sunday had just under 5 million viewers which was HBO’s largest premiere in six years.  Well Done HBO.  Below is the press release.  ENJOY!

HBO RENEWS BOARDWALK EMPIRE FOR SECOND SEASON

“LOS ANGELES, Sept. 21, 2010 – Following resounding critical approval and high viewer numbers for the series’ Sept. 19 debut, HBO has renewed BOARDWALK EMPIRE for a second season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming.

“All the ingredients aligned for this one, from Mark Wahlberg and Steve Levinson’s initial pitch, to Martin Scorsese’s enormous contributions as director and executive producer, to the genius of Terry Winter and the expertise of Tim Van Patten, to a stellar cast led by Steve Buscemi,” said Lombardo. “The response from the media and our viewers has been nothing short of amazing.”

From Terence Winter, Emmy® Award-winning writer of “The Sopranos” and Academy Award®-winning director Martin Scorsese, BOARDWALK EMPIRE is set in Atlantic City at the dawn of Prohibition, when the sale of alcohol became illegal throughout the United States.

Among the early critical raves, People called the show “not-to-be-missed,” hailing Steve Buscemi’s “brilliant, brutally funny performance,” while USA Today observed that BOARDWALK EMPIRE “looks to be the season’s best new show on any outlet.” The Philadelphia Inquirer said the series “stands at the pinnacle of TV achievement,” with the New York Observer noting, “It’s really, really good.”

The Sept. 19 premiere of BOARDWALK EMPIRE averaged 4.8 million viewers during the 9:00 p.m. (ET/PT) airing to score HBO’s largest premiere of any program in over six years (since March 21, 2004 – “Deadwood” with “The Sopranos” as lead-in). With additional plays at 10:15 p.m. and 11:30 p.m., BOARDWALK EMPIRE was watched by a combined 7.1 million viewers for the night.

Season one credits: Created by Terence Winter, BOARDWALK EMPIRE is executive produced by Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese, Tim Van Patten, Stephen Levinson and Mark Wahlberg; co-executive producers, Gene Kelly and Lawrence Konner; producers (series), Rudd Simmons and Rick Yorn; producer (pilot), David Coatsworth; supervising producers, Howard Korder and Margaret Nagle.”

“The Fighter” Trailer is up in Glorious Quicktime

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2010

Director David O. Russell (Three Kings, I Heart Huckabees) has a new movie called “The Fighter” starring Mark Wahlberg, Christian Bale, and Amy Adams.


The synopsis: “The Fighter” is a drama about boxing champ “Irish” Micky Ward and his half-brother Dicky, a boxer-turned-trainer who rebounded after nearly being destroyed by drugs and crime.”


This looks to be an Oscar contender and one of the better boxing movies to come out in a while.


According to IMDB, David O. Russell is slated to direct the adaptation to “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies starring Natalie Portman.  Cool.

Film Review: ‘Mile 22’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 16th, 2018

Mile 22 is a movie where John Malkovich (in a weird hairpiece) looks straight into the camera and says, “He’s not a double agent…He’s a triple agent!” That pretty much sums up the quality of this latest collaboration between Mark Wahlberg and director Peter Berg. It is loud, full of action, and constantly twists itself in stupid knots trying to be more than a fun summer blockbuster.

Mile 22 opens with a decently long prologue of a team known as ‘Overwatch’ (no relation to the video game), led by Mark Wahlberg infiltrating a Russian sleeper cell home in a suburban town. Wahlberg’s on the ground team consists of Lauren Cohan and Ronda Rousey. In the sky, there is John Malkovich and a group of computer nerds watching every aspect of the operation. There are also two males on Wahlberg’s team which I will address in a minute. This opening sequence is really, really well done, It has a lot of tension and the suspense builds and builds through the final moments. Despite my enjoyment of the scene overall they still went out of their way to show that ‘Overwatch’, which is allegedly the best of the best and doesn’t exist, is also really terrible at their job because all the planning and technology advantages they still let some 20-year-old guy get the drop on the two male members of ‘Overwatch’ killing them.
