Shaft (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2019

“This is Pitch Perfect Shaft!”

We need more heroes like Shaft. Even if he breaks a few of the rules run order to take out the bad guys, he gets the job done and makes the world a better place, all while having a smile on his face and consistently makes us laugh. Thank you Shaft or shall I thank Samuel L. Jackson who looks like he’s having the time of his life in this film. Either way, this sequel to the 2000 film along with the original Shaft movies from the 1970s is Pitch Perfect Shaft, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

The Dead Don’t Die – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2019

“The Dead Don’t Die is my favorite zombie film of the year.”

Just when you thought the zombie genre was indeed dead, Jim Jarmusch (Dead Man, Only Lovers Left Alive, Coffee and Cigarettes), re-ignites the stale genre with The Dead Don’t Die, including an A-list cast, extreme dry wit, and a ton of fun. This short, but sweet movie feels familiar with its usual genre tropes, but at the same time, its wholly original and burns down the fourth wall so much that it would have Deadpool himself blush. Jarmusch basically got most of his favorite actor friends from his previous films and said, “Hey, let’s make a zombie movie where anything goes.” The result with this cast of deadpanned characters are flawless as they weave through a zombie outbreak in their small, podunk town to the tune of Sturgill Simpson’s song The Dead Don’t Die.

Batman 30th Anniversary – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 11th, 2019

In 1989, the birth of summer blockbusters became real with Tim Burton’s Batman. Before that, the superhero genre was not the behemoth it was today with A-list actors, 9-figure budgets, and compelling dramatic tones. In fact, it was quite the opposite. Us comic books fans had to settle for slapstick one-liners in low budget sets and costumes to get our favorite heroes on screen. It wasn’t until that summer where everything changed and paved the way for films like X-Men, the MCU, and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise. It was a strange decision too, but Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided on the young filmmaker Tim Burton to take on the large budget and big named comic book adaptation of Batman. Until then, Burton had only done Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure and Beetlejuice.

I Am Mother – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 9th, 2019

 

“I Am Mother is one sci-fi film that gets it right.”

As we’ve seen before, robots with artificial intelligence will either help us succeed into the future with a peaceful existence or completely obliterate the world population for their global takeover. With the new Netflix original movie I Am Mother, it’s not so black and white as that. There is a big gray area as newcomer directory Grant Sputore graciously tells the story about a human/robot relationship. This aptly paced thriller has some wonderful original ideas that are implemented with twist and turns throughout that never sells itself short on passionate participation. This is one sci-fi film that gets it right.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2019

 

“Echo in the Canyon is a true music buff’s utopia.”

If you’re a music buff, this new documentary called Echo in the Canyon is a must-see. Music industry maestro Andrew Slater and musician Jakob Dylan (Bob’s son and member of the Wallflowers) have given us the gift of rock n’ roll on film that focuses specifically on the mid-1960’s music revolution that catapulted acts life The Byrds, The Mamas & the Papas, Buffalo Springfield, and later years of The Beatles and The Beach Boys to success and fame.
