I, like many others, was super excited when word broke that they were coming out with ‘The Hangover Part II‘ and I was also very anxious to know if they were going to keep with the theme of the movie and do a wake-up and a blackout. That part didn’t bother me. Where I was a bit dumbfounded was the fact that Stu was marrying some Asian girl who had no relevance to the story line. After having seen the movie, I had hoped they would pick up where they left off to lead into Part II to have some sort of explanation as to who this girl is that Stu is marrying. Was he originally supposed to marry the Stripper (Heather Graham’s character)? And the Asian girl was her bridesmaide. Something along those lines.

‘Joker’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2019

‘Joker’ is the best comic book character study ever made.

Todd Phillips is several oceans removed from his usual comedy escapades (The Hangover trilogy) with his brutally dark, yet brilliant film ‘Joker‘. Those of you who are not particularly fond of the comic book genre these days will still find something amazing in this DC universe that takes place in the 1980s. Joaquin Phoenix gives an unparalleled performance as the titular psychopath with a smile like you’ve never seen him before in pages or on-screen. It’s really something to behold, but then again, Phoenix is always magnificent. The real star of the film is director Todd Phillips himself, who for the first time showed that he can hang with the likes of Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, and Francis Ford Coppola, delivering a picture-perfect account on Joker.

Starsky & Hutch Reboot Happening!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 24th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Starsky & Hutch looks to be returning to TV with a reboot that is happening at Sony Pictures TV. The original series aired during the 1970s and centered on two police detectives consisting of David Michael Starsky (Paul Michael Glaser), who was the crazy street-wise detective and Kenneth Richard Hutchison or Hutch for short (David Soul), who was a by-the-book detective who solved crimes in California in a hot rod Ford Gran Torino.

Film Review: ‘War Dogs’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

thumbnail_24172

War Dogs‘ looks good on paper and the trailer for the film sells the movie’s comedy and fun moments. It seemed like the perfect project for director Todd Phillips (‘The Hangover’ trilogy, ‘Road Trip’, ‘Old School’) as he reunites with Bradley Cooper and adds Jonah Hill and Miles Teller to this story, based on true events about two school friends who love to smoke up and run guns for the government – some of which might be illegal. This is a very different film for Phillips from what we’re used to, and unlike the trailer, the film isn’t all that funny. Sure, there are some moments of small laughter here and there, due to Jonah Hill’s character, but the rest is Phillips’ wink to a mix of gangster movies, including ‘Scarface’, ‘Goodfellas’, ‘Casino’, and even a bit of ‘Drive’.

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 24th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

War-Dogs-poster

Director Todd Phillips has just released the trailer for his latest venture, and it’s not a Hangover film! Phillips made his name with the ‘Hangover‘ comedies and the Will Ferrell based ‘Old School‘. This time he’s taken on a different story and working with Miles Teller and Jonah Hill telling the true story of two young men, David Packouz and Efraim Diveroli, who won a $300 million contract from the Pentagon to arm America’s allies in Afghanistan.

Film Review: ‘The Hangover III’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

the-hangover-3-wide

I’m not quite sure why ‘The Hangover III‘ was called ‘The Hangover III’. The first two films actually dealt with four friends having an epic hangover and their crazy exploits and adventures. This third installment doesn’t even include a hangover and oddly leaves a lot of the comedy at the front door and focuses instead on violence, murdering animals, and action sequences. I’m sure this will score a giant box office reward for its opening weekend, but bad word of mouth should prevent this third and final act from making any more money past the next couple of days.

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.

Film Review: ’21 and Over’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

A lot of fun is to be had with ‘21 and Over‘ if you know what you’re getting into. Sure, you’ll hear from many people that it mimics ‘The Hangover‘, possibly to a tee, but in my opinion, I think this entertaining and hilarious movie stand on its own. ‘The Hangover‘ scribes Scott Moore and Jon Lucas get behind the director’s chair together for their first time with this comedy and they prove they have as much skill as Todd Phillips when telling a college tale about drinking and debauchery.

Film Review: ‘Identity Thief’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

identity-thief-movie

There hasn’t been a decent comedic road trip movie since Todd Phillips‘ 2000 comedy, ‘Road Trip‘. And with the recent ‘Guilt Trip‘ flick not performing well, I had some hope that ‘Identity Thief‘ would spark another engine in the comedy genre. Unfortunately, due to the scripted laughs, and unlikable main character, it falls it bit flat. I have no doubt though that the talented Melissa McCarthy and Jason Bateman will bring in big numbers at the box office, however the word will spread quickly that ‘Identity Thief’ is forgettable and ultimately unsatisfying.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Todd Phillips might just make that leap into dramatic films after all.  Phillips directed ‘Old School’, ‘Road Trip’, and ‘The Hangover’ films.  All of his films so far have been comedies, that have really had the same jokes and starred most of the same people.  But now, it looks like he might take the helms of Paramount’s ‘The Gambler’ remake, which had Martin Scorsese attached at one point in time.

There is already a ‘Project X’ Sequel In the Works!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 7th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Well that took no time at all.  Warner Bros. is already hard at work developing a sequel to their ultimate party film that was released this past week known as ‘Project X’.  The film made $21 million opening weekend which I guess has been impressing the right people.  It seems like the original writers, Michael Bacall and Matt Drake will be returning as writers for the sequel which Bacall as been writing the sequel since before the first one opened last week.

Hi Bryan Here…..

Director Todd Phillips (Hangover/Old School/Road Trip) is producing this new film called ‘Project X’ which is looking like ‘Superbad x’s 1000 mixed with Jackass.  If Todd does anything well, it’s films about parties and hangovers.  And this seems to be the ultimate party film.  It looks insane and way funny.  Enjoy the trailer.
