by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 27th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

viola-davis

Steve McQueen (‘12 Years A Slave‘) is casting ‘Widows‘ for New Regency, and has a great star attached to begin with – Viola Davis. The project is based on the 1983 British miniseries based on a caper that went seven shades of wrong.

If you’re Tate Taylor, one thing you don’t do is mess with a recipe for success. After writing, directing and producing the multiple Oscar nominated film, The Help, he is sticking to the talent he originally recognized, and is bringing it to his current project. The talent he is bringing to this project are Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer from ‘The Help‘.

‘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.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

And the 2016 Golden Globe Nominees Are….

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

53fe9c57-1190-4d61-b197-fcda11fc89af

The awards show is January 10 on NBC hosted by Ricky Gervais. First off, let’s look at something AWESOME here. ‘MAD MAX: FURY ROAD‘ is nominated for BEST PICTURE. It needs to win. It should win. And if does win, we all go streaking. That being said…I can’t believe that ‘Me and Earl and the Dying Girl‘ was not nominated for anything. Come on. It’s one of the BEST films of the year. It’s also interesting to see no love for the final season of ‘Mad Men’ her either. Oh well.

Here is the list of nominees:

Janet W., Here…

BG_Blackhat trailer 2

A tragedy occurs in China and a computer virus is recognized as the culprit.  The Chinese government immediately called in their cyber security expert, Captain Chen Dawai (Leehom Wang).  In the US, the CIA is working on the cyber attack, too.  Enters Agent Carol Barrett, not Carol Burnett, (the fabulous Viola Davis) which begins the China and US taskforce.  But who sent it?  Captain Dawai knows who will help him find the villain.  His former classmate, Nicholas Hathaway (Chris Hemsworth), is a genius when it comes to code.  Unfortunately, Hathaway was locked up.  Can a deal be struck to catch the bad guy?

Hi, Bryan Here….

Finally, the trailer for Orson Scott Card’s 1985 sci-fi opus is here. ‘Ender’s Game‘ looks pretty damn good and now I’m all hyped up for this film. Directed and written by Gavin Hood ‘(X-Men Origins: Wolverine‘), the film stars Asa Butterfield ‘(Hugo‘) as Andrew “Ender” Wiggin, a boy who demonstrates enormous potential in battling an oncoming alien invasion that threatens the human race.

Suzanne Reviews ‘Won’t Back Down’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2012

Suzanne Here….

Educational reform is a difficult enough subject for policymakers to tackle. Nothing is black and white, no one is completely to blame or completely self-interested, and there are a tremendous number of problems and an infinite number of solutions. So in approaching a movie about the plight of public education today, it would be nice to see the subject treated with the nuance appropriate to actually reform the system. Unfortunately, Won’t Back Down misses this nuance and focuses on creating a good vs. evil environment with two sides that don’t work together to find a solution. Fine, it’s a movie – except this is a subject that requires some thought, and so should this movie.

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going?

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.
