Pitt Teams Up with McQueen and Fassbender!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2011

For a while now, Steve McQueen (Shame) and Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class) have been making movies together. From 2008’s Hunger, which is now in the Criterion Collection, to the NC-17 rated Shame, they’ve been garnering quite a bit of critical acclaim from the film world. Now, their new project has drawn in another big name: Brad Pitt. He’s another one that if I need to tell you what he’s been in, you need to watch more movies. Or get out from under your rock. Though I’m sure it’s a nice rock.

‘Widows’: Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 26th, 2018

Widows holds itself out as a female heist movie, somewhat in the vein of Ocean’s 8, but from start to finish it delivers a lot more punches. This is not a fun and fancy-free flick, and it definitely is more intense than the previews lead you to believe, so if you are looking for Ocean’s 8, go see Ocean’s 8. This film is dark, deep and twisty. What it does represent correctly from the outset is that Viola Davis is the baddest B around, and this lead role was made for her. Likewise, the rest of the cast seems to have been picked perfectly and shines in roles seemingly written for them.

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

the_magnificent_seven_70101

I can’t tell you how excited I am for this remake of ‘The Magnificent Seven‘. I’ve a huge fan of westerns. I wish there was more out there. luckily Quentin Tarantino and The Coen Bros. are making westerns still. You can add to that list Antoine Fuqua (Training Day), who is remaking the 1960 film that starred Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

So it’s been 17 years, and MGM wants to remake yet again, ‘The Thomas Crown Affair‘. This will be the third time for a remake. Do they have any original ideas? I think not. It’s not all bad news though. Michael B. Jordan (Creed, The Wire, Fruitvale Station) is signed on to star in the remake.

Hey guys, Jana here,

ethan_hawke_denzel_washington_antoine_fuqua_training_day_001

In true Hollywood fashion, re-making an old classic is always a popular project and ‘Magnificent Seven‘ is no different. The new Seven is based on, of course, the 1960’s film of the same name that starred Steve McQueen, Yul Brynner, Charles Bronson, Eli Wallach and James Coburn. Of course, this classic is a remake of yet another film, from iconic director Akira Kurosawa’sSeven Samurai‘ from 1954.

For the inaugural event of Wizard World’s Comic Con in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the guests were in abundance. I was extremely excited to sit in on a panel Q&A by Robert Englund. Before Englund took the stage, the audience got a special teaser for his newest film, ‘Fear Clinic‘. The film which doesn’t open until February of 2015 can be seen earlier if you are fortunate enough to be able to attend NYC HorrorFest where ‘Fear Clinic‘ will be the official opener.

Film Review: ’12 Years A Slave’

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

john-legend-12-years-soundtrack-lead

There have been many films about slavery and the Civil War over the years. Only a couple have been good, and those have featured a big war in the storyline. But as far as a story strictly on slavery goes, the film count doesn’t have a lot of marks for great movies. With the exception of Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Django Unchained’, which was more a fantasy and revenge flick on slavery, british director Steve McQueen’s ’12 Years A Slave’ is a phenomenal film from top to bottom, yet it’s extremely rough to watch in certain parts due to the emotional content of the story. Chiwetel Ejiofor leads an all-star cast in one of the finest films in recent memory. One we won’t soon forget and will discuss with friends, families, strangers, and others for months to come.

Fernando’s Review of ’12 Years A Slave’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2013

Fernando M., Here…

Last year, we saw two films tackle the darkest of moments in American History.  Quentin Tarantino’sDjango Unchained” gave us a “what if?” historical satire that was a hit with critics and audiences alike.  Steven Spielberg chimed in too with the also acclaimed, though incredibly white washed, “Lincoln,” which depicted the legislative maneuvering that underwent to abolish slavery.

‘Tower Heist’ Bluray and DVD Announced!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2012

Hi Bryan Here….

The Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy comedy caper has just been announced for home video.  ‘Tower Heist’ will be released on February 21st, 2012 on Bluray and DVD.  From what it looks like, it will come with a digital copy as well as the ultra violet digital copy.  Not sure if this will happen, but usually its either one way or the other.  Not both.  I am very much against the ultra violet streaming service.  Just give me my digital copy on my computer.  I do not want to sign up with a company and stream my movie.  Just get rid of the ultra violet all together.  Some extras include: 2 alternated endings, bloopers, and behind the scenes features.
