US – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 23rd, 2019

The horror genre is something sacred and entertaining. It can be whatever you’d like it to be from something of a masked killer on the loose slashing their way through unsuspecting teenage victims to a literal hell unleashing in space to something much more quiet and unnerving like family being torn apart by a demonic entity and everything in between. Jordan Peele has crafted his own horror universe and elements and is 2/2 (so far) in drilling the nail into that horror membrane with precision and accuracy. His latest film simply titled ‘US‘ is much more than a straight out horror film, but something that makes us think about our past, present and ultimate future with each other. I’m happy to say that ‘US‘ is a true masterpiece in horror.

The Lion King (2019) – Film Review

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2019

“The Lion King is a soulless remake of the original.”

The Lion King is a soulless remake of the original that is beautiful to look at but (mostly) lacks any charm of the animated classic. In order to even properly discuss this movie one has to acknowledge that all of these Disney remakes are completely unnecessary cash grabs by Disney. I don’t care about that aspect to be honest. They are a business, and businesses need to make money. However, you can’t have a conversation about the substance of the movie if all you do is say how these “live action” remakes are pointless the whole time so I wanted to get that out of the way up front.

The Art of Self-Defense – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2019

 

“The Art of Self-Defense earns its black belt in the annals of cinema.”

A shy, apprehensive man looks to make a major change to his life in Riley Stearns‘ second feature film ‘The Art of Self-Defense‘ that stars the fantastic Jesse Eisenberg. Part sadistic comedy and part thriller, Stearns and Eisenberg perfectly walk the line of awkwardness and confidence here. This is a film that deserves to be a big hit and seen by everyone, although I can’t help but think the masses won’t know what to do with this multiple genre story. In my eyes though, ‘The Art of Self-Defense‘ is a winner and I can’t remember seeing anything quite like it.

Iron Sky: The Coming Race – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 16th, 2019

 

“Iron Sky: The Coming Race is a fun-as-hell movie.”

In 2012, Finnish filmmaker Timo Vuorensola, gave us the film ‘Iron Sky‘, which was about the defeated Nazi soldiers from WWII, who somehow retreated to the dark side of the moon, built a home base, and prepped to bring a big war back to Earth in 2018. Oh what a fun movie that was. It even became a cult hit amongst the horror genre crowd. Some seven years later, Timo took to the crowdfunding sites and brought in enough cash to make a sequel called ‘Iron Sky: The Coming Race‘.  Oddly, this is the only film he’s done since the first ‘Iron Sky‘ movie and I can’t figure out why, because both these films are visually great and pack a ton of fun and action from start to finish. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want more from Timo Vuorensola.

Spider-Man: Far From Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 2nd, 2019

Spider-Man: Far From Home shows that if this is the direction they plan to go after Avengers: Endgame, then be prepared for another 10 years of Marvel dominance. The ease with which this film picks up after the events of Endgame while propelling a single character forward was actually unexpected to me. Maybe I was dumb for doubting Marvel, but I didn’t think that Far From Home would be better than 2017’s Spider-Man: Homecoming, but it was.
