Film Review: ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2017

When you have names like Steven Spielberg, Tom Hanks, and Meryl Streep coming together for a movie, you expect something out of this world. That’s not really the case with this talented trio in their new film called ‘The Post‘. Don’t get me wrong, ‘The Post‘ is a good film, but like Spielberg’s recent movies in ‘Lincoln‘ and ‘War Horse‘, there is something magical missing. While the performances are all very good and the movie looks visually pleasing at all times, the script and delivery is a bit on the nose with emotion or lack thereof. Still, this is an important movie to watch in our current political climate as I imagine the true story it was based on back in the early 1970s, which paved the way and kept our “freedom of press” in tact.

Streep + Hanks + Spielberg = ‘The Post’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 8th, 2017

The first trailer and poster for the film ‘The Post‘ is standing straight up. It’s a big deal, because it has Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep in the lead roles with Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. That’s a powerhouse right there. The film will release on December 22nd, just in time for the holidays, but really, they want to get it in for Oscar consideration. The film releases everywhere next year on January 12. In addition to Hanks and Streep, the film stars Alison Brie, Carrie Coon, David Cross, Bruce Greenwood, Tracy Letts, Bob Odenkirk, Sarah Paulson, Jesse Plemons, Matthew Rhys, Michael Stuhlbarg, Bradley Whitford, and Zach Woods.

Hey guys, Jana here,

We know a standalone ‘Wonder Woman‘ movie has been in the works for quite some time, we don’t have a plot to the film, yet, but we know her history. The Amazonian princess-warrior Diana left her lush tropical island to dwell in our urban cityscapes of glass and steel. Tutored in the ways of the Greek warriors, and outfitted with incredible gifts the Goddess bestowed upon her people, she becomes Paradise Island’s emissary to civilization.

Hi, Bryan Here….

HANGOVER3_001

Well, here is the new poster for ‘The Hangover III‘, which is set to release on May 24th. From the looks of this, Las Vegas is in for one wild and destructive time.  Plus it reminds me of Warner Bros.‘ ‘Harry Potter‘ posters.  Synopsis: “The Hangover Part III” is the third and final film in director Todd Phillips’ record-shattering comedy franchise. This time, there’s no wedding. No bachelor party. What could go wrong, right? But when the Wolfpack hits the road, all bets are off. So, i guess this will be the last film of the series. That is until warner decides to reboot it in a few years with a different cast. Looks epic.

Check Out the Poster for Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 22nd, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I smell and see Oscar nomination all over this film.  Daniel Day-Lewis looks amazing as our 16th president.  Steven Spielberg directs Daniel Day-Lewis in “Lincoln,” a revealing drama that focuses on the 16th President’s tumultuous final months in office. In a nation divided by war and the strong winds of change, Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war, unite the country and abolish slavery. With the moral courage and fierce determination to succeed, his choices during this critical moment will change the fate of generations to come.

Hi Bryan Here….

I’ve been hearing about this film for a long long time.  I’m so glad it is finally getting released.  The poster looks great so far.  Love the tag line and love that it is from the producers of the 2003 version of’ Dawn of the Dead’.  Over the July 4th weekend, I had a Kurt Russell marathon at my house and one of the films we screened was Carpenter’s ‘The Thing’.  This was the crowd favorite out of the four we all watched.

Hi Bryan Here…

This trailer is all sorts of kickass.  I have watched it almost for an hour now.  It has got a certain haunting quality to it.  This is what I love most about teaser trailers.  It doesn’t give much away, and it leaves you wanting more. Much more.

Fantastic Fest Film Review: ‘Apostle’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 24th, 2018

Easily my favorite movie of Fantastic Fest so far, Apostle is the type of movie that will stay with you hours after watching it. Gareth Evans wrote and directed this disturbing tale of Thomas (Dan Stevens) who infiltrates a religious cult on a remote island in order to rescue his kidnapped sister. Any further descent into the plot would ruin surprises that were a joy to discover during the movie. Evans’ ability to depict brutality and rage is second to none. What’s that? You haven’t seen The Raid or its sequel? Go watch those then come back to this review.

Just a few of my favorite posters!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 11th, 2017

Hey guys, Jana here,

There are several elements that go into play when a movie is prepping for their initial debut. There is an advertising campaign, and the goal is to saturate the atmosphere with the upcoming movie, all designed to get us to show up in theaters and plunk down a chunk of our hard-earned cash. One of the first type of media to invade our subconscious is the all-important movie poster. This may seem like a small thing, but each poster is carefully designed to share just enough information that will reel us a bit closer, then just like when fishing, set that hook.
