Film Review: ‘Venom’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2018

Venom is the latest example of a movie trying to be too many things. I don’t know if we need to blame the writers, director, or studio tinkering but somehow this movie attempts to be everything to everyone and fails miserably. That isn’t to say its a bad time at the movies, I actually truly enjoyed some aspects of Venom. I think if the movie focused on trying to do one thing instead of a million it may have been one of the best comic book movies in years. Instead, as a whole, it should be launched into space.

 

WARNING: THIS REVIEW WILL HAVE SPOILERS

Want to win a free Digital Copy of the latest ‘Star Wars’ film ‘Rogue One‘? Now you can. I was a huge fan of the film, which took place in between Ep. III and Ep. IV, and focused on a woman named Jyn Erso and a group of others who set out to steal the Death Star plans to give to a certain princess. It was a fantastic movie.

Film Review: ‘Jason Bourne’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 27th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

Jason-Bourne-2

Hey now. Matt Damon is back as Jason Bourne in the new film that is simply titled, ‘Jason Bourne‘, which teams up Damon and director Paul Greengrass once again for the spy thriller who seems to never remember who he is or where he came from. In addition to the usual losing sight of Jason Bourne, then spotting him in a big crowd, to losing him once again, the writers added HBO’sSilicon Valley‘ show to the element without all of the fun or comedy. I’ll get to that in a minute though.

Film Review: ‘NightCrawler’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

It’s very rare to me when a film stays with me for weeks on end. It’s been more than a month and I still can’t stop thinking about Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut ‘Nightcrawler‘. It’s a smooth yet very suspenseful thriller about a friendless sociopath who decides one day he is going to start a career in freelance TV new reporting, where we see him succeed as well as go to the metaphorical “dark side”. This sociopath is played by the impressive Jake Gyllenhaal who (to put lightly) has major psychological issues. We’ve seen him play something similar before in ‘Enemy‘ and ‘Donnie Darko‘, but here, he’s on a whole different level. It’s easy for me to say that Jake Gyllenhaal plays the most frightening character in film in the last decade.

Guide To Wave Two Films At Fantastic Fest 2014!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 27th, 2014

Jana B., Here….

GoodJimmy2

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

Janet’s Film Review: ‘Nightcrawler’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 30th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

nightcrawler-jake-gyllenhaal-riz-ahmed-600x399

Nightcrawler opens with the moonshining down on the city of angels, we see a thief, Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in action.  He is cutting away chain-linked fence when a security guard spots him.  A bright light shines on the sunken face and wiry form of Bloom.  (According to IMDB, Jake Gyllenhaal lost 20 lbs. for the role.)  The rent-a-cop asks for ID, but Bloom repeatedly diverts his requests with distracting comments and questions.  Bloom is a fast-talker.  Cut to bargaining with a scrap metal yard foreman in an attempt to sell the copper wire and chain-linked fence Bloom had collected.  The foreman doesn’t waive on his offer and resolve, but Bloom rapidly counters like a string of firecrackers pushing for better pay.  The foreman refuses to give Bloom a penny more than his offer.  What does Bloom do in response to this let down?  He asks for a job.  As plainly as he can, the foreman assures Bloom that he would never hire a thief.  Scraping to make ends meet and living in squalor, Bloom is desperate for a fast track to success.
