Artist Mark Simpson otherwise known as “Jock”  has some very cool images on his website that he was hired to do for Peter Berg’s “Dune” movie.  Berg is no longer attached to this film.

It would have been great to see what Peter Berg would have done with this franchise.  But head HERE and check out all the cool images that “JOCK” did for the movie that will never be.

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‘.

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.

Film Review: ‘Patriots Day’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 11th, 2017

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: ‘Lone Survivor’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2013

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.
