Bombshell – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2019

“I appreciate the message it sends of kickass women who continue to stick it to the man, but the film falls flat when it neglects to accent just how devastating a true bombshell moment can be. “

Just as the explosive revelation that the men at Fox News were creeping on the women there made a few waves and then fell flat, so does Bombshell, a movie based on harassment at America’s premiere conservative network. This is a star-studded cast and I was really hoping for a blockbuster film, but it just didn’t hold up as one of the year’s better films.

Uncut Gems – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2019

“Uncut Gems is one of the most intense movies I have ever seen and don’t get Adam Sandler another comedy special but rather, get this man the Oscar right now for his performance.”

A New York diamond district dealer with a severe gambling problem snowballs into a series of violent and suspenseful situations in the new Safdie brothers movie ‘Uncut Gems‘, starring a phenomenal Adam Sandler in a role like you’ve never seen him in before. Don’t get this man another comedy special, get this man the Oscar right now for his performance as Howard Ratner, the most irritating business owner in the world. This film is a surprise punch that might have the most intense sequences of the decade.

“Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is a grande closing of one of the best stories to ever be told, plus it’s wonderful to spend one last time with our film friends.”

Rey, Finn, Poe, BB-8, and more set out to finally defeat Kylo Ren and the New Order in the culminating finale of the world’s most favorite film franchise with Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker. This ninth film concludes the Skywalker story while still managing to keep a hint of hope open for more tales in space. J.J. Abrams is back in the director’s chair from The Force Awakens and delivers an energetic and emotional end with both new characters and old ones we haven’t seen in quite some time. It’s a fitting and graceful finish that feels satisfying as a whole for something that’s been obsessed over for around 42 years.

IT CHAPTER 2 – 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2019

THE FILM


The second and final chapter of ‘IT‘ brings the adult renderings of Stephen King’s kid heroes to the forefront some 27 years later in ‘IT: Chapter 2‘, that stars Bill Hader, Jessica Chastain, and James McAvoy. This sequel runs in at three hours alone, making the two films over five hours long. Director Andy Muschietti has even said there is a 6.5-hour super-cut of the movie, which leads me to ask why this wasn’t released on a streaming format, due to its episodic nature and extensive time run. Still, this second chapter is entertaining enough but suffers from major flaws in pacing, redundancy, and trying to over-complicate things.

There is super cool, new vinyl box set from Mondo and it has all to do with ‘Hellraiser‘. It’s called the Box of Pleasures and it contains the scores for the first three Hellraiser films. There is new artwork on each album from Matt Ryan Tobin, liner notes, including a letter from Clive Barker, and an all-new hard-cover slipcase that you can store all three albums in. It’s quite fancy. There is even a gold embossed spine. Mondo has spared no expense with this fantastic seet.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN – US Tour Stage Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2019

A rarity in the theatre world, Dear Evan Hansen hit the world by storm back in 2016 that was crafted entirely on original ideas and music. Most productions today draw inspiration from books or other projects, but Dear Evan Hansen was a prototype on Broadway that has been met with huge success. Some four years later the themes and music still resonate with anyone who watches this play unfold, and you know that creators Benj Pasek and Justin Paul can strike gold anytime they want as they’ve shown with writing the songs for the film La La Land or in this case about an isolated high school student with a big lie that goes viral on social media.

LITTLE WOMEN (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 28th, 2019

One hundred and fifty years may have passed since Louisa May Alcott’s autobiographical enchanter Little Women was written, but it continues to remain relevant through countless retellings on screen and on stage. In total, three adaptations of this coming-of-age drama have been filmed, yet none quite captured the sentimentality and sensibility of the novel like Gillian Armstrong’s Little Women (1994) —until now. With a rich trajectory of colors, lavish production designs and a skilled cast of personalities, Greta Gerwig’sLittle Women’ is a delightful awakening of an American classic.

ONCE – US Tour Stage Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2019

Two strangers in Dublin, Ireland meet by chance on the street, where they realize they are both talented musicians and end up falling in love with each other. Based on the hit 2007 film of the same name, ‘Once‘ is a raw and emotional tale of music, love, and heartbreak that won many awards more than a decade ago. After the film’s success, a stage version was made and hit Broadway by storm, also earning numerous achievements. Now, the play is touring North America and has stopped in Dallas, TX at the gorgeous Winspear Opera House for the Thanksgiving holiday, and what better way to celebrate than to visit the pub and listen to some fantastic Irish folk music with ‘Once‘ live on stage.

KNIVES OUT – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 21st, 2019

“Knives Out was a goddamn delight and one of the most fun movies of the year.”

An entire wealthy family turns on each other when the head patriarch turns up dead on his 80th birthday in this smart-as-hell murder mystery yarn Knives Out from the brilliant filmmaker Rian Johnson (Brick, Looper, Star Wars: The Last Jedi). Darkly funny throughout with a treasure trove of twists and turns and one fantastic ensemble dream cast, Johnson tells this modern-day who-dunnit puzzle effortlessly that will leave you guessing with surprises up until the very end. It was a goddamn delight and one of the most fun movies of the year.

THE IRISHMAN – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 20th, 2019

“The Irishman is a perfect storm of Scorsese mafia films over the years, culminating in what seems like his final act in the genre.”

The story of Jimmy Hoffa, Frank Sheeran, and his mafia syndicate has never been told as flawlessly as new film The Irishman. While it might not be Scorsese’s best film, it’s definitely Scorsese at his absolute best behind the camera as he weaves a multi-decade tale of crime with a myriad of characters that could be considered the greatest mob story ever told. Even at 77 years old, Scorsese has shown no signs of slowing down or shying away from brutality as The Irishman has plenty of.
