Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

The Multi-Media Men are back with the 37th episode that covers all things in the entertainment industry. We had a small house this time around since it was Father’s Day. Joining me is Adam Conway from the Angelika Film Center and Susan Kamyab from This Chix Flix. It was a lot of fun to say the least.  Here is one of our infamous Re-Cast segments. We went ahead  and recast the iconic film ‘Stand By Me‘, which is one of the best films of all time that starred Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman, Jerry O’Connell, and Kiefer Sutherland, and was directed by Rob Reiner and based off a short story by Stephen King. There is no way we can replace any of the amazing actors aboard here, but in this day and age, a remake is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role? Do you agree with us?Let us know  if you agree or missed anything. And please let us know what you think by going to our FACEBOOK page and TWITTER page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information. And don’t forget to visit iTunes and Stitcher to subscribe to our podcast. Enjoy the show.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

05

I had the extreme pleasure to sit down with the excellent director Thomas Carter (‘Swing Kids‘) to discuss his new film, “When The Game Stands Tall“. We talk about making the movie, what it was like to film the intense football scenes, as well as some of his favorite moments in film. We even get us to tell a funny story about working with Eddie Murphy. It was such a fun interview in Dallas, TX. Read my review of the film, by CLICKING HERE!

Film Review: ‘When The Game Stands Tall’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Jim Caviezel;Michael Chiklis;Matthew Daddario

The inspirational sports movie genre always musters up a successful box office receipt and draws large crowds to the theater over the weekend. From films like ‘Remember the Titans‘ to ‘Glory Road‘ to even ‘Miracle‘, these movies had great performances, cohesive story telling, excellent action scenes, and a powerful message that was executed very well to pull our heart strings and entertain us in the span of two hours. I really wish that I could say the same for Thomas Carter’s adaptation of the real life story of the De La Salle Spartan football team in his film ‘When The Game Stands Tall‘.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 13th, 2019

The culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 is here with Avengers: Endgame. Back in 2008, a few people had a big idea for us comic book fans. That idea started with Iron Man, where at the end of the film, Samuel L. Jackson showed up and wanted to get a team together. That team would be the Avengers, that would go on to team up everyone’s favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, The Wasp, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlett Witch, Vision, The Winter Soldier, and a few others. Spread over the course of ten years, these filmmakers and Marvel Studio execs have crafted an intense storyline that has continued over the last decade with rich and iconic characters that have had their own movies to shine, along with teaming up here and there to take on bigger threats.

Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 26th, 2019

“‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood’ is first-rate filmmaking and pure bliss for a movie fan.”

It’s always a special year when Quentin Tarantino releases a new feature film. His ninth movie is called ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ and is perhaps his most ambitious film to date. Not only has Tarantino grown as a filmmaker since 1992’s ‘Reservoir Dogs‘, permanently making Tarantino a household name, but his films have covered different time periods and genres too. Additionally, if you’ve seen Tarantino talk or be interviewed before, you can instantly tell he has a huge passion and love for older films and Hollywood itself. He’s a true fan and a wealth of knowledge about the movie industry and cinema. ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ translates that deep affection directly on screen too as we follow a struggling once-famous actor and his best friend stunt double around Hollywood for a few days. It’s a different breed of Tarantino, while at the same time, having all of the necessary Tarantino traits you come to expect when watching his movies. It’s wonderful to watch everything unfold for the nearly three-hour adventure that is given to us, which left me smiling and talking about it days after. ‘Once Upon a Time…In Hollywood‘ is first-rate filmmaking and pure bliss for a movie fan.

Annabelle Comes Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2019

Set in the horrifying Conjuring universe where paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel around the world and investigate strange phenomenons, perform exorcisms, and help families out with evil spirits, have both seen some truly terrifying things. The catch is that it’s all real or at least based on real-life events. With all of these horror movies that started with The Conjuring, there have been a few spinoff movies. The most popular of them is the frightening possessed doll named Annabelle, which is now on its third movie titled Annabelle Comes Home. Directed by Gary Dauberman, who has been the lead writer on the past Annabelle films, this sequel is his first foray into the director’s chair with original filmmaker James Wan producing. The result is too much of a slow pace for its own good, in addition to taking itself too seriously in an already flooded cheap scare and tiresome plot that we have seen two dozen times before.

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

Helicopter blades whirl and fight against a hot and tumultuous wind. The lights come up and the curtain rises on a busy town scene full to overflowing with vibrant color. In walks purity personified as Kim (Emily Bautista), an orphaned woman from the rural areas of Việt Nam. When purity is presented, the vile and defiled will always come prowling, enter The Engineer (Red Concepción), a sleazy pimp that runs a brothel bursting with the promise of pleasure and sweet oblivion via alcohol, drugs, and whatever else. Dallas Summer Musicals presents Miss Saigon by Claude-Michel Schönberg and Alain Boublil, ultimately a re-imagining of Giacomo Puccini’s famed opera Madame Butterfly. Read the rest of this entry »

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review!

“Avengers: Endgame is the perfect ending to the biggest franchise in history.”

Avengers: Endgame – Film Review #2!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2019

 

“Avengers: Endgame is a nearly flawless closing chapter to this universe that started with Iron Man.”

Avengers: Endgame is a nearly flawless closing chapter to this universe that started with Iron Man in 2008. Every movie leading up to Endgame is represented here is a way that honors (while flexing) everything that Disney/Marvel has achieved in the last 11 years. For a movie this dense and long to be executed at such a high level is a testament to the common knowledge that Marvel has created with its characters over the last 11 years. For a movie to have nearly 50 characters appear yet still feel grounded and focused on the original six Avengers we met between 2008-2012 was astonishing.

‘Game of Thrones’ Is The Last TV Show of Its Kind!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 9th, 2019

Television has always been a cultural touchstone for me growing up. I remember the rush home to catch the season finales of Lost and 24 so I wouldn’t miss out on the conversation the next day. When my wife was in college I bought her a DVD recorder that we would set on a timer to record shows on to a blank DVD. When TIVO and recording came around it was a Godsend. This is how television has always been to me. The collective pop culture experience that would take the next day at work discussing everything we all watched together. I understand this way of consuming media has been dying for years but it struck me a few days ago that April and May are the true end of an era, specifically with Game of Thrones.

Film Review: ‘What Men Want’!!

by Janet White on Feb 8th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

It has been said that men are from Mars and women are from Venus.  The meaning behind this idiom is that men and women are so different that communication between the two is doomed to fail.  The truth is that men and women consistently get in their own way when it comes to romance, however; that is a different conversation. (wink)   Ali Davis (Taraji P. Henson) is power without a couple.  She’s strong, determined, intelligent, and fierce in both beauty and business acumen.  Despite her many talents and skills, Ali is repeatedly passed over for a promotion to partner in her sports management firm.  Her boss, Nick Ivers (Mr. Stone Cold Himself, Brian Bosworth, still pretty hot), claims that Ali cannot relate to men.  Well, a visit with Sister the psychic (Dallas’ own Erykah Badu), a bottle of tequila, and a stage floor, and Ali becomes the translator that hears all.
