Dan’s Review of ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 8th, 2018

I am not a huge fan of scary movies. I’ll see them, but they are definitely very low on my overall ‘Genre I Enjoy’ list. That said, I always appreciate a really well done horror film and ‘A Quiet Place‘ is exactly that. It is one of the most suspenseful and intense movies I have seen in a few years. The awful situations this family finds themselves in naturally grow to such a climax that it is one of the few movies where I can say I was on the edge of my seat.  On the surface, it is just a terrifying creature feature where noise is the enemy, but if you look a little deeper, it is quite simply the most terrifying movie about being a parent ever made.

Film Review: ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 4th, 2018

Comedians have routinely had a tough time shaking their labels as depthless clowns, but lately some are rejecting that type-cast in cinema and using their own material to change the minds of the public. Breaking away from his best known work as Jim in ‘The Office’, John Krasinski followed Jordan Peele’sGet Out‘ lead by taking the director’s role for the opposite end of the spectrum: Horror. His cleverly silent debut thriller ‘A Quiet Place’ has inexorable intensity, satisfying character development and bona fide heartbreak. Not since ‘Signs’ has there been such a fascinatingly atmospheric creature feature!

The Silence – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 12th, 2019

“The Silence is Incredibly dumb. Very bold. Absolutely absurd and hilarious.”

The Silence is a movie that premiered on Netflix recently starring Stanley Tucci and Kiernan Shipka. It is a blatant ripoff of ‘A Quiet Place‘ in almost every imaginable way. But that isn’t why I am writing this, I am reviewing this movie because I want to discuss the absolutely insane third act that had me laughing at its absurdity.

My Favorite Movies Released in 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2018

The year of 2018 has come to a close and over the past 365 days, I’ve seen roughly 175 new films that were released.  I had a ton of fun watching each and every single one of them, even if I came out sour towards a film. There were a ton of great films this year that ranged from big action blockbusters, emotional indie dramas, scary-as-hell films that still haunt me, and some laugh out loud movies that always put me in the right mood. I’d chalk 2018 as a winner in the movie business, because there are some films that came out that I will truly cherish for a long time to come.

Best Movies of the First Half of 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2018

I’ve had the chance to see a ton of movies this year but still feel like I have missed out on some indie ones that are necessary to catch before December. Below is my list so far. I was really shocked with what a good year it has been for horror and movies staying with me in general. It is pretty rare that I think about a movie days after seeing it but this year there have been so many.

US – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2019

The horror genre is something sacred and entertaining. It can be whatever you’d like it to be from something of a masked killer on the loose slashing their way through unsuspecting teenage victims to a literal hell unleashing in space to something much more quiet and unnerving like family being torn apart by a demonic entity and everything in between. Jordan Peele has crafted his own horror universe and elements and is 2/2 (so far) in drilling the nail into that horror membrane with precision and accuracy. His latest film simply titled ‘US‘ is much more than a straight out horror film, but something that makes us think about our past, present and ultimate future with each other. I’m happy to say that ‘US‘ is a true masterpiece in horror.

The Art of Self-Defense – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2019

 

“The Art of Self-Defense earns its black belt in the annals of cinema.”

A shy, apprehensive man looks to make a major change to his life in Riley Stearns‘ second feature film ‘The Art of Self-Defense‘ that stars the fantastic Jesse Eisenberg. Part sadistic comedy and part thriller, Stearns and Eisenberg perfectly walk the line of awkwardness and confidence here. This is a film that deserves to be a big hit and seen by everyone, although I can’t help but think the masses won’t know what to do with this multiple genre story. In my eyes though, ‘The Art of Self-Defense‘ is a winner and I can’t remember seeing anything quite like it.

The Child Remains – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2019

 

“The Child Remains was not a great adaptation of an otherwise spine-chilling true story.”

As we move into the summer of big blockbuster films full of Disney characters, aliens, and action packed explosions, there is another genre that will be making its way in the heat of year. That’s the indie horror movie scene, where it looks to have a much needed influx of new and original scary flicks. One of them is titled The Child Remains, which is a slow burn horror movie directed by Michael Melski, and based on the horrific true-life story about the Ideal Maternity Home in East Chester, Nova Scotia. Unfortunately, this is a case where the actual real-life events are much more sadistic and terrifying than this modern adaptation that tends to overstay its welcome.

Pet Sematary 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 10th, 2019

Pet Sematary‘ comes back to life with a brand new 2160p 4K UHD image with Dolby Vision and looks and sounds excellent. It’s like watching the film all over again. Stephen King’s excellent novel was adapted in 1989 by director Mary Lambert that focuses on the Creed family moving to the country for a better life where loss, death and family all play a gruesome and horrific part. There are new bonus features as well as some vintage extras imported over here. What an amazing release. Highly Recommended!

‘Glass’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 30th, 2019

Finally, we got the conclusion to M. Night Shyamalan’s superhero opus with Glass, which was the third film in his amazing trilogy that was preceded by Unbreakable and Split. This new film brings back pretty much every single character from each film for the ultimate showdown and twist and Shyamalan did it perfectly. The 1080p HD video is wonderful and the killer Dolby Atmos track is something special. There is a ton of bonus features, but zero commentary tracks. This is a MUST-OWN Blu-ray!
