Film Review: ‘Robocop’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joel Kinnaman

Over the past year, I’ve been writing stories on the upcoming ‘Robocop‘ remake. As I found out more and more information about this reboot of the franchise, I was becoming less and less excited about it. It might of been the fact that it was getting a PG-13 rating, the change in the suit, or many of the other differences that were popping up from the original 1987 film that starred Peter Weller. Hell, even Weller himself said he was not looking forward to the remake and even compared his 1987 film to the likes of ‘Casablanca‘, which is hilarious.

Here’s The New Trailer for The ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

 RoboCop+remake

I just checked out the new Robocop trailer. “Why is America so Robo-phobic?” is the phrase I plan on working into every conversation I have for the foreseeable future. This phrase is uttered by the badly rugged Samuel L. Jackson. So far in the 2:26 minute long trailer we see some awesome CG effects which stands to reason if you’re watching a movie about a cyborg policeman, or any movie made in 2013. Long gone are the days of non-computerized special effects.

Check Out The Trailer for The New ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Robocop_remake_fanposter

Here’s your first look at the remake of ‘Robocop‘ from director Jose Padilha. Joel Kinnaman, star of AMC’sThe Killing‘ will play Robocop. Michael Keaton, Samuel L. Jackson, Gary Oldman, Abbie Cornish and Jay Baruchel co-star. It’s gonna be difficult to fill Peter Weller’s shoes in this, as well as make a gritty enough film.

Samuel L. Jackson Has Joined The ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 6th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Hi folks.   Sorry for the lack of awesome news an updates.  It’s very busy here at Boomstick HQ.  Some really neat thing lined up in the next week or two.  So bare with me.  Thank you.  Now onto some BADASS news.  Samuel L. Jackson is joining the cast of the remake of ‘Robocop’.  Remember, I’ve been talking about this remake for a while and last time I talked with Peter Weller (the original Robocop), he was not enthused about this remake.  THis might change his mind.

Gary Oldman Joins ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

Gary Oldman has just signed on to star in MGM’s remake of ‘Robocop’.  If you didn’t know that ‘Robocop’ was being remade, well now you do.  Blasphemy, I know.  Joel Kinnaman will play Alex Murphy/Robocop with Jose Padilha directing.  Kinnaman is best known for his role on ‘The Killing’ on AMC.  Padilha has directed a few documentaries along with ‘Elite Squad’.  Needless to say, I have no hope for this film.

Robocop trilogy coming Bluray…

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 31st, 2010

MGM/FOX announced that the Robocop trilogy will be coming to Bluray on October 5th.

If you remember the first film took place in the city of the future which was Detroit, BUT…was all filmed in the great city of Dallas.  Throughout the whole movie you can see the downtown skyline and uptown landmarks.

Hopefully MGM/FOX does not screw this release up.  I am hoping for behind the scenes/bloopers/commentaries/deleted scenes/and interviews from present day with the actors.  Do not make this a bare bones release or …..there will be…. trouble.

No extras have been announced for this release yet.

Pre-order your copy HERE.

The Prodigy: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2019

The Prodigy is an early-in-the-year horror film that checks most of the boxes of the horror genre while at the same time, showing us something fresh with a possibility of something much larger in scope. Which ever the case is, this film is very promising and I hope there is a sequel of some sort down the line, because this is an avenue of horror that needs to be explored.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Class of 1999’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 1st, 2018

THE FILM


Filmmaker Mark L. Lester has sure made a name for himself in cinema world, mostly being movies from the 1980s. He gave us some of the most homoerotic action films from that time, including ‘Commando‘ and ‘Showdown in Little Tokyo‘ to name a few. ‘Class of 1999‘ is no different either and is a sibling sequel to his film a few years beforehand in ‘Class of 1984‘. With ‘1984‘, you had a new teacher come to a violent high-school where most of the kids are in gangs and try to make a difference. Things get out of hand for sure.

Written by: Bryan Kluger…..

The world of pro-wrestling has been around for many years and has certainly seen its ups and downs, most noticeably being the WWE. There have been many promotions through the decades, which have made a lot of people very successful and it continues to this day. At some point down the road though, there was one company that surpassed everyone by leaps and bounds and brought the pro-wrestling arena into the mainstream. Of course I’m talking about World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), or the artist formally known as World Wrestling Federation (WWF) in its teenage angst years. For a long while, there were two major companies that featured the best of the best in the pro-wrestling world. WWE and WCW. They didn’t play well together at all on and off screen.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 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!

Scream Factory is releasing ‘Manhunter‘ in Collector’s Edition form on May 24th on Blu-ray with a ton of new extras. Do you remember ‘Manhunter’ from 1986? It had a hell of a cast and featured the character Hannibal Lektor for the first time on screen. Yes, even before he rose to superstardom in ‘Silence of the Lambs‘. This film also had a killer soundtrack as well. Below is the press release and all the info you will need on the release. Can’t wait for May 24th.

Film Review: ‘Chappie’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2015

Fernando M., Here…

chappie_a

OK, so Neill Blomkamp (‘District 9‘) likes video games and old school sci-fi movies.  Just putting it out there. Chappie, the character, not the movie, is the result of a robotic police force and government robotics and one programmer that wants to push the limits of AI.  He does so with his creation “Chappie,” a robot with feelings, who is stolen and raised by a couple of gangsters who try to teach him to be a criminal for their benefit

Fox Has Found Their Monster For ‘Frankenstein’!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 3rd, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

rob-kazinsky

Themes travel through the entertainment-world just like anywhere else, what’s “In” right now are superhero stories, unique reality offerings, and dark, creepy stories. It’s the latter category this last bit of news falls into tonight. Fox has been looking for the perfect cast to fill in their series following the Mary Shelley mythology of ‘Frankenstein‘.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Antonio Banderas

 

 

 

Antonio Banderas has been a versatile and bankable actor since he made his bones in the 80’s. His films are as varied as ‘Sybil’s personalities. It depends on who you ask about his career as to what films they identify with. If you ask kids who he is, they will jump and say that’s Puss in Boots from ‘Shrek‘ or Gregorio Cortez from ‘Spy Kids‘ – That’s what my kids would say, at least. There are a lot of adults that would see ‘Zorro‘, the toothy Armand from ‘Interview With The Vampire‘, El Mariachi from Robert Rodriguez’s Mexico Trilogy and if you ask me, I’d say he was Che from ‘Evita‘. He has the most beautiful tenor voice and I was entranced quickly by his Spanish good looks and enchanting sound. He couldn’t really pull it off as the lead in ‘The Phantom of the Opera‘, but that’s a different story.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice….Beetlejuice?

Jana B. here,

 

Beetlejuice

 

Say the name 3 times and you’re in trouble! Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary….’Beetlejuice‘? Talking about none other than the original black and white stripe suit wearing master of disaster before Robin Thicke took a crack at the outfit, and the disaster that is Miley Cyrus. Before he came along, Michael Keaton did it better than anyone could imagine. Tim Burton knew he was making an excellent casting decision bringing ‘Mr. Mom’ into the mix.

Film Review: ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

star_trek_into_darkness-HD

I must admit that when I walked into the the crowded theater yesterday to watch J.J. Abrams’ second journey into the Star Trek universe, I was a bit apprehensive and weary on how good it could be. Reason being, that there were no press screenings before the film was released. On the contrary, the actual press screening was one hour later than the regular screening for anyone to attend who bought tickets. Usually studios do this, because they know they have a terrible film on their hands and do not want negative reviews about their movie until the film is out. I thought of two reasons why Abrams woud do this. Either he really did have a crappy film on his hands or in true Abrams fashion, he kept tons of secrets and reveals throughout the picture wanted to keep all a secret until it was released.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Warner Bros. and David Dobkin’s ‘Arthur & Lancelot’ is once again back on the table to finally be made into a film.  Warner Bros. really wants Colin Farrell to play Lancelot and I hear that Farrell wants the job as well.  No word yet on Arthur, but I expect a big name.  The last time this project was on the table, Gary Oldman was approached to play Merlin, but it didn’t work out.  I imagine now, that things are back in motion, he will be called again for the role.
