Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-20 at 10.57.37 AM

Some people love his films. Some hate his films. No matter which side of the spectrum you’re on, you have to agree that every one of Terrence Malick’s films look exquisitely beautiful. With movies like ‘Tree of Life‘, ‘Knight of Cups‘, ‘The Thin Red Line‘, ‘Badlands‘, and ‘Days of Heaven‘, you can’t help but become entranced in the story, characters, and visual spectacle of Malick’s filmmaking process. His past few films have mostly shown a variety of characters who rarely say anything on screen, but instead narrate the movie as it goes along, giving a better visual masterpiece of cinema than a dialogue driven movie.

Say what you will, but director Terrence Malick is brilliant. I love all of his films. He has a unique eye and lens that perfectly captures life and people. With films like ‘Days of Heaven‘, ‘Badlands‘, ‘The Thin Red Line‘, and ‘Tree of Life‘, you can tell that Malick is one of the better filmmakers still working today. His new film ‘Knight of Cups‘ looks beautiful, but I wish it was a mix of some sort of beer pong and LARPing. Could you imagine Malick doing something like that? I wish. Here is the new trailer for the film, which looks to have a great cast and releases March 4th.

Behold! Terrence Malick’s ‘To The Wonder’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 19th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Over the past several days, you might have noticed the site has not been updated.  No need to worry, everything is fine, and I appreciate all of the emails asking what’s been going on.  I’ve had a bad cold since last week, which has left my head feeling like it was submerged in black tar and repeatedly beating by mega ton hammers.  So today, is the first day I have felt well enough to even get out a sentence on the computer.  Hopefully tomorrow, I’ll be back to 100%.  – – On to the cool news.  Terrence Malick‘s new film ‘To The Wonder‘ has finally got a trailer and it looks very Malick-y.

Hi Bryan Here….

One of my favorite films of the year has just been announced for a blu-ray combo release.  On October 11, 2011, ‘Tree of Life’ will be released on a Blu-Ray+DVD+Digital Copy combo pack.  Read my review of the film HERE.  I just loved everything about this film.  I bet that at some point after the first of the year, Criterion will snatch up the rights to ‘Tree of Life’ and release it in the ultimate edition.  At least that’s what I am hoping for.  Press release below.  Also you can pre-order the film below.

Hi Bryan Here….

Ever since I watched the first trailer for Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’, I often thought about how the film could reach people emotionally and show people how beautiful everything is.  Not to mention, how it would affect how people could and would perceive what is possible with cinema today.  Also, as I was watching the film and after I viewed the film, I couldn’t help but bring my own personal emotions, history, and experiences to the film.  I have a feeling that a lot of people will do the very same.  To put it simply, Terrence Malick’s ‘Tree of Life’ is the most impressive and magnificent visual portrait of history and life ever put on film.  I wish I could buy the world a ticket to see this film.

Hi Bryan Here…

Terrence Malick is one heel of a filmmaker and I am so happy he is busy making films currently.  His next film which is called “Tree of Life” comes out May 27th.  I have been looking forward to that film for quite sometime.  It seems that he has already finished his next film as well which is still untitled at the moment.

Hi Bryan Here…

If you have not had the chance to check out the latest vision from extraordinary director, Terrence Malick, then you should take a couple of minutes and watch the trailer.  The film stars Brad Pitt, Sean Penn, and Jessica Chastain.  The Tree of Life is the impressionistic story of a Midwestern family in the 1950’s. The film follows the life journey of the eldest son, Jack, through the innocence of childhood to his disillusioned adult years as he tries to reconcile a complicated relationship with his father (Brad Pitt). Jack (played as an adult by Sean Penn) finds himself a lost soul in the modern world, seeking answers to the origins and meaning of life while questioning the existence of faith. Through Malick’s signature imagery, we see how both brute nature and spiritual grace shape not only our lives as individuals and families, but all life.

Click HERE to watch this fantastic trailer.  Cannot wait to see this movie.

Film Review: ‘Knight of Cups’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 9th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

maxresdefault

There are two types of people in this world. Those who love Terrence Malick films and those who don’t. I tend to be the former in all aspects, from his films ‘Days of Heaven‘, ‘Badlands‘, and ‘The Thin Red Line‘. Recently, Malick has become more experimental with his filmmaking, with the amazing ‘Tree of Life‘ and ‘To the Wonder‘. Malick hasn’t been telling traditional narratives in a sense of the standard Hollywood formula, but rather has told a story with very little dialogue exchanged between characters as they walk through cityscapes and nature with a narrator voice over, detailing a stream of consciousness.

Hey guys, Jana here,

 screencapture-www-theknightofcupsmovie-com-1448389469614
Knight of Cups‘ comes from writer/director Terrence Malick and stars Christian BaleCate Blanchett and Natalie Portman and hits big screens on March 4. The production of this project was a little different for everyone involved. Christian Bale just got a character description with no lines, some characters received lines with the option to use any or all they desired. Everything captured on film was an organic reaction to the situations they were presented with.

Film Review: ‘Boyhood’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 17th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

original

If you’re unfamiliar with the name Richard Linklater, then you’re in for a real treat. Linklater is a Texas filmmaker who is known for making iconic movies in and around Austin and Dallas, Texas. His films include ‘Slacker‘, ‘School of Rock‘, the ‘Before‘ series, ‘Bernie‘, and the iconic and legendary piece of cinema ‘Dazed and Confused‘. But nothing could have prepared us for his newest film called ‘Boyhood‘, which is a cinematic milestone and achievement and something that will be talked about and praised for many years to come.

Film Review: ‘Mud’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 25th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Mud_poster

Jeff Nichols has done a great job with his third film, ‘Mud‘, bringing us a coming-of-age story of two best friends in the south who bond with a homeless fugitive on the run. With amazing performances, a great script, and solid story structure, this tiny tale of love, confidence, and second chances might just win at the box office in due time with positive word-of-mouth.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

beasts-of-the-southern-wild-blu-ray

Beasts of the Southern Wild is no doubt in my top-10 list for best films of 2012.  I know most of you haven’t heard of this film, but rest assured, once you see this film – and I urge you to see this film as fast you can- you will not forget it.  Beasts of the Southern Wild is Benh Zeithlin’s feature-length directorial debut, and even though he is only 29 years old, he has a poetic vision that is on par with Stanley Kubrick and Terrence Malick.  Zeithlin’s attention to detail allows the movie to successfully portray backwater Louisiana, magical realism, and a culture’s determination and strength. It is unlike anything I have seen.  Not only is this film entertaining, smart, and creative, it is also important in that it shows a very realistic portrayal of some of the poorest people in present day America as they struggle to survive disasters both man-made and natural.  This is what every indie filmmaker should strive for.
