Film Review: ‘Halloween’ 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 21st, 2018

The original Halloween is barred none the best of the slasher genre. It is a simple story, a young boy kills his sister and is put in a mental institution, 16 years later he breaks out and goes on a rampage murdering people on Halloween. Michael Myers is terrifying in a way that Jason or Freddy isn’t. He feels more “realistic” in his behaviors in the first movie. Michael is just an unstoppable force of death who Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) runs in to. All of the sequels to Halloween try too hard to explain things or add significance. Sure, there are some fun entries that with the right amount of inebriation are quick fun. But ultimately they all abandon what was so great about the first, its simplicity. Halloween, 2018, erases all of the sequels in just 3-4 lines of dialogue and goes right back to the roots of what made the original such a groundbreaking horror film.

Film Review: ‘White Boy Rick’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 14th, 2018

White Boy Rick is a mediocre biopic about the insane Wershe family story. When I say insane, I mean completely insane. When crack was on the rise in the 1980s, Rick Wershe was a police informant, drug dealer, and kingpin for a solid amount of time with the help of his Dad. This story had so many twists and turns related to the rise and fall of this family that a good hour on the ‘Ol Google Machine’ after the movie really left me shocked with how much of it was true. Despite my fascination with the subject matter the movie didn’t land as well as I thought it would. I’d compare it to Black Mass which is another truly incredible real life story that couldn’t figure out how to present it as a compelling movie.

Film Review: ‘The Predator’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 11th, 2018

Another reboot to the franchise brings more blood, guts, and humor to one of our favorite Arnold Schwarzenegger 80’s film ‘Predator‘. Now, it’s simply titled ‘THE PREDATOR‘, which vaguely addresses the past two films with zero mention of any characters. Shane Black is at the helm of this distant sequel to the original film, which is interesting, to say the least. Shane was in the first film back in 1987 and played the part of Hawkins who told the funny jokes through the film. Shane went on to write the ‘Lethal Weapon‘ movies, ‘The Monster Squad‘ and more importantly ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘, ‘The Nice Guys‘, and ‘Iron Man 3‘, before taking this on with his fellow ‘Monster Squad‘ collaborator Fred Dekker.
