Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

David-Berkowitz-640x360

 

 

Few things entertain me more than a good serial killer book/movie/TV show. I know, it’s a strange interest to have, but this is one of the milder interests of mine. We’ve heard about the Charles Manson slayings going into production for a series with Rob Zombie involved, this time it’s another killer that is getting the mini-series treatment.  David Berkowitz, Son of Sam, the .44 Caliber Killer – whatever you want to call him, he’s the next topic for a mini treatment.

Guide To Wave One Events at Fantastic Fest 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 6th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

ff2014-poster-web-geof-darrow__full

 

Fantastic Fest is one of the best film festivals in the U.S. not to mention the biggest. Everything there is awesome and amazing. Definitely the place to go if you love genre films as they feature the newest films from all categories featuring in horror, fantasy, sci-fi, action  from all over. Some of the best and most loved films have had their world premieres at the festival. Hoping to take its place next to huge hits like ‘There Will Be Blood‘, ‘Zombieland‘ and ‘Apocalypto‘ is ‘Tusk‘. The oddly named flick comes from the brilliant and irreverent mind of Kevin Smith.

Le-Chef-Comme-un-chef-nn

There is a certain pattern to almost every movie genre. If you watch enough movies, you’ll notice the patterns for yourself. This is especially true in regards to romantic comedies. Look at Kurt Vonnegut’s shapes of stories and you’ll get a pretty good idea of what these patterns look like. Le Chef follows the typical “rom com” mold without any deviation. It is in this rigid devotion to the mold that it falters.

Code Black

 Putting together a solid documentary takes more than cinematic skill. It takes a keen eye for detail and extensive knowledge of the subject matter. To put together a great documentary, one must have all these qualities as well as a deep passion for the subject at hand. With the skill of a seasoned filmmaker that belies his amateur status, first time filmmaker Ryan McGarry hits it out of the park on his first attempt with Code Black.

I’ve never hid from you the girl-love I have deep inside me when it comes to beautiful faces, gorgeous bodies or even just their boobs. One person that comes to mind that holds all those qualities, plus makes me wish I were her, is Reese Witherspoon. She’s southern charm in motion. You just know she’s got to make killer sweet tea, right?

Listen, Michael Bay, we need to talk.  It’s not you, it’s me.  Trust me on this.  You haven’t changed, I have.  Maybe I love you more than I should.  Is it wrong to love too much?  Maybe it was.  You will always be dear to my heart.  Your explosions are completely unmatched by any other.  Nobody can take that away from you.  No other director will ever replace your passion to film entirely in IMAX 3D just to make things that much bigger, and we’re already talking about GIANT EFFIN ROBOTS!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

sharknado-2-the-second-one-300x300

The Discovery Channel’sShark Week‘ 2014 is coming up soon, and since SyFy changed the entire Shark game last year with the incredible ‘Sharknado‘, they are jumping on the bandwagon with ‘Sharknado Week‘, which will show the first film, and premiere the sequel ‘Sharknado 2: The Second One‘, along with Roger Corman’s new film ‘Sharktopus vs. Pteracuda‘. I of course expect a few other amazing programs to be announced. But we do know that ‘Sharknado 2‘ will debut on July 30th, and the Corman film will air on July 26th. I can only imagine that Discovery is not too happy with this announcement, but hey, ‘Sharknado Week’  sounds pretty awesome!

Film Review: ‘Dom Hemingway’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 17th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

dom-hemingway-jude-law-richard-e-grant

 It’s very rare when I know two minutes into a film that it is going to be simply amazing. Well, ‘Dom Hemingway‘ is one of those rare moments. As I sat in the theater not knowing really anything about the film other than that Jude Law was in it and that director Richard Shepard (‘The Matador‘, ‘Girls‘) made the film, I turned to my friend ReelVixen two minutes in, and whispered, ‘This movie is fucking AWESOME!” And through the next 93 minutes, that statement rang true for every second of film. I can easily say that ‘Dom Hemingway‘ is one of my favorite films of the year and I can easily see myself watching this hilarious and fun gangster movie once a week for the rest of my life.

Film Review: ‘Breathe In’!!

Liz T., Here…

Breathe In

Have you heard the one about the married couple who invite a foreign exchange student into their house and “suddenly” an attraction develops between the young girl and the husband? Wait, you say you are familiar with this overused cliché? Perhaps you should tell Guy Pearce (Memento, L.A. Confidential) that the plotline of his new movie Breathe In is better suited for a Lifetime movie than the big screen.

Last week, we brought you the first ten films that were announced, and if that was any clue on how cool the movies will be this year, it only gets better.

Film Review: ‘Robocop’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joel Kinnaman

Over the past year, I’ve been writing stories on the upcoming ‘Robocop‘ remake. As I found out more and more information about this reboot of the franchise, I was becoming less and less excited about it. It might of been the fact that it was getting a PG-13 rating, the change in the suit, or many of the other differences that were popping up from the original 1987 film that starred Peter Weller. Hell, even Weller himself said he was not looking forward to the remake and even compared his 1987 film to the likes of ‘Casablanca‘, which is hilarious.

On tonights episode of AMC’sThe Walking Dead”, we saw the death of some main characters and the fall of the prison. We see the Governor cross the point of no return and Rick being pulled out of his passive aggressive role as leader. It  was one of the saddest and possibly one of the most talked about episodes ever aired on this show.  Let me break it down for you exactly how the mighty prison fell and who exactly died tonight.

Film Review: ‘All Is Lost’!!

Donna W., Here….

all-is-lost-trailer-0812013-144250

A man awakens on his yacht to find that it has crashed against a wayward storage tank and is now taking on water via the gaping hole in the side of his boat. The man, whose name we never know, is concerned but calm. He goes about the business of repairing the hole, pumping out the water, and assessing what’s left of his equipment, provisions and supplies. He has no radio and no means of navigation. He is far, far from any shore. Problems begin to mount. A storm. An injury. Things go from bad to worse.

Kevin Smith Will Make ‘Tusk’ Before ‘Clerks III’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2013

Jana B., Here….

kevin_smith_spoilers_large

Kevin Smith. I don’t hide my unabashed love for him and lust for Silent Bob’s counterpart, Jay, or has we know him, Jason Mewes. Felt like I was just living out the fantasy in ‘Jay and Silent Bob Strikes Back‘ when he first saw Justice. OK, back to the reason I’m writing this. There is news on the ‘Clerks III‘ front! I seriously did a fist pump like I was channeling my inner Judd Nelson when I learned this. You know how Kevin Smith tells us that we’re going to have a new Clerks movie, but he has to do this one project first? This is one of those projects. In a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, the next film he’s going to make is titled ‘Tusk‘. Smith says it will be an “Ivory bridge” to ‘Clerks III’. If that’s not some Oscar Wilde like word play, I don’t know what is. Yeah, gratuitous insertion of ‘Clerks II‘ reference. Smith says it will make financing the sequel easier and also to work out some of the cobwebs from not having directed a film since 2011’s ‘Red State‘. We can all agree we want Smith at the top of his game for what will probably be the final Clerks installment.

The Top 20 Vampire Movies Of All Time!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

085 - Evil Ed

I love making lists. Grocery lists. Bucket lists. Holiday lists. Favorite movie lists. Favorite VAMPIRE movie lists. I bet that got your attention, didn’t it? This is MY list of the top 20 Vampire movies ever made. Why did I point out that it was MY list? Easy. So you read this knowing it wasn’t an Academy vote that got a movie on this list. No one paid me to promote their movie. However, I’m NOT against this, just to be clear. Why spend time putting movies in a list? Maybe it satisfies some Freudian lack of paternal affection I suffered as a child. But the real answer is, “Why wouldn’t I make a list as awesome as this?”

Film Review: ‘Fruitvale Station’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 fruitvale-station-trailer-05112013-112150

What a rough movie to get through. After the credits rolled and the lights came up in the theater, there was not a dry eye in the house. Instead of a documentary, we have a narrative account on the real life murder of Oscar Grant, an incident that occurred on New Years Night in 2009 that sparked large protests and riots in Oakland and around the country. In his first feature film effort, director Ryan Coogler takes us through the life of Grant in the hours leading up to his untimely murder. Major Hollywood figures have been involved in this case with Forest Whitaker serving as producer on the film and Octavia Spencer playing the role of Grant’s mother. This film needs to be seen by everyone and I wish I could buy everyone a ticket to see ‘Fruitvale Station’.

Jacob is now having nightmares where Paul is still alive and with him, and visions of Emma, stabbed to death and dead in his bath tub. The FBI computer has been hacked and the sensitive information regarding Claire’s protective custody has now been compromised. Ryan insists that he is assigned directly to Claire for her protection.

Film Review: ‘Jack the Giant Slayer’!!!

by Woozie on Mar 1st, 2013

Suzanne here,

Screen shot 2013-03-01 at 1.13.48 PM

Fairytales are always fodder for reinterpretation and expansion in movies. Sometimes they fall flat and sometimes they add to the beloved story we knew as children. The movie Jack the Giant Slayer stays true to the whim and wonder of the original story and adds in a bit more for the modern movie fan.

Film Review: ‘Not Fade Away’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

53377cce1c457521c7d14886d4390006

David Chase, mostly known for being the creator and show-runner on HBO‘s ‘The Sopranos‘, marks his first feature film directorial debut with ‘Not Fade Away‘.  I didn’t know what quite to expect from this coming of age film that relies heavy on music of the 50s and 60s as well as political and social issues to further the story, but from  what the trailer showcased, I expected more of a ‘That Thing You Do!‘ type of film, which chronicled the rise and fall of a local band to fame and fortune.  That is not the case with ‘Not Fade Away‘.  Instead we get something a little more in the way of growing up in turbulent times and dealing with change. By all means, Chase made a solid film, but it is not without its flaws.

‘E.T.’ Will Return To The Big Screen!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

That’s right, folks.  ‘E.T.’ will be on the big screen again, thanks to Turner Classic Movies and Fathom Events.  Screening will take place October 3rd at 7:00pm at select theaters across the country.  This marks the 30th anniversary of the film and most likely is geared to promote the new blu-ray coming out as well.  This was one of the first films I saw in the theater and it just blew my mind.  It was one of the first times my Dad and I bonded over a film.  Needless to say it holds a special place in my heart.  Not only will you get a newly remastered version of the film, but also a journey of the making of ‘E.T.’.  And yes, folks, this is this original film, not the version with the extra scenes or the CGI’d walkie-talkie replacements.  Spielberg acknowledged his fuck-up long ago and apologized.  The same can’t be said for Lucas.  I’m super excited about this and hope all of you can make it and take your kids to see this on the big screen.  Official press release below.

Bryan’s Review of ‘Ted’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here…

‘Ted’ is hilariously funny.  I didn’t expect it to be as humorous as it was, but I busted a gut from start to finish.  I’m not a huge ‘Family Guy’ fan. so I admit, I was a bit apprehensive to watch a feature film written and directed by Seth MacFarlane.  I was quite surprised as to how warm and witty it was.  After the first 15 minutes or so of seeing an animated teddy-bear come to life, I really didn’t see it as a teddy-bear, but rather an actual person.  MacFarlane captured a genuine and heartwarming film with an ultra raunchy and vulgar kick at every turn.

Bryan Reviews ‘That’s My Boy’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

We all still love Adam Sandler.  He gave us great characters in Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, and his many iconic roles on Saturday Night Live.  But at some point, Sandler started making lazy, unfunny, and obnoxious films and characters.  It made me not want to see any of his films.  There were a few brief moments of greatness from him over the past several years in his more dramatic roles, but when it came to his comedies, Sandler and his films have become a joke.  His last film, ‘Jack and Jill’ was one of the worst films to come out in the last twenty years, with his previous comedies not too far off from that.  That being said, Sandler’s ‘That’s My Boy’ is his welcome back party. A welcome back to the great comedic genius he was once known for.

Bryan Reviews ‘Crooked Arrows’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 18th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Crooked Arrows’ might be the first feature length narrative film on the fastest-growing sport, Lacrosse.  ‘Crooked Arrows’ was inspirational and an underdog story at heart.  Now I know we have seen our fair share of underdog films, such as; ‘Rocky’, ‘Underdogs’, and ‘Remember the Titans’, but  where ‘Crooked Arrows’ differs is that it shows a sport not only from its physical aspect, but also its spiritual, artistic, and historic background.  While there is an overabundance of cheesy heart-felt moments in this film, ‘Crooked Arrows’ has enough character and inspiration to rise above recent sports films.

Bryan Reviews ‘Save the Date’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

 

‘Save the Date’ is a romantic comedy about the love lives of two sisters. While loyal indie romantic comedy fans may love this film merely because it echoes their favorite genre, this particular romantic comedy comes up short on both the romance and the comedy.  Although it may capture the indie “feel”, it lacked the spark and originality that should be at the heart of an independent film.  Even the stellar cast was unable to overcome the monotony of the storyline.

Bryan Reviews ‘Cinema Six’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 16th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Cinema Six’ is an ultra vulgar comedy that tries too hard to be this generation’s ‘Clerks’ rather than provide a new voice or message.  The movie wants so desperately to be a brilliant comedy, but it never quite achieves its goal. That being said, ‘Cinema Six’ still has enough charm and laughs to warrant late night viewings with drinks and friends.

Sirens wailed in the distance.  Someone must have called the cops.  There were numerous apartment buildings along this street, all of which would have a perfect view of the goings-on below.  Had they simply heard a commotion or witnessed actual bloodshed?  The results were the same either way.  Bridge intended to be long gone by the time the first squad car arrived on the scene.  He wasn’t one for answering questions, especially when the first question asked would be How did this guy happen to lose his skeleton?

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Record Store Day Black Friday 2011 Delivers Again

by NapkinArt on Nov 21st, 2011

As long as I can remember Thanksgiving has been my favorite holiday. There really is no holiday on the calendar that centers around food and family, and it’s the one day of the year where it is ok to stuff yourself into a food coma. Thanksgiving is also a favorite holiday for many, but many love the holiday because of the shopping day after known as ‘Black Friday.’

The older I get the less inclined I feel to venture out into the crazy public and spend money the day after Thanksgiving, especially since I feelcompletely lethargic after all that turkey and stuffing. But thanks to Record Store Day Black Friday, I again have an excuse to spend some cash on music and perhaps walk off some of those calories. Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan Reviews ‘Cars 2’ in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 19th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…..

I liked two things from Cars 2.  It looks really good and crisp.  And Bruce “man-god” Campbell lends his voice to one of the cars.  That’s it.  I don’t understand why Pixar lowered the bar with this one.  Cars 2 actually should have been called “The Mater Show” since the film it 95% about him, which is just terrible on every level.  Maybe it’s because I find Larry the Cable Guy just an untalented guy.  The first Cars film has always been my least favorite of all the Pixar films, but that’s not saying much, because every Pixar film is AWESOME.  AWESOME until this sequel.  However this is one of the best looking Pixar films ever to grace blu-ray.  And the 3D is top notch after the first big scene of the film.  But does that make it worth the buy?  You be the judge.

Hollywood has a rich tradition of releasing competing movie projects at virtually the same time.  Armageddon squared off against Deep Impact.  Before that, Big duked it out with Vice Versa and roughly 87 other body-swapping comedies, the last of which was kept on a shelf until finally being released earlier this year (The Change-Up).  So it is that two studios have set their sights on updated interpretations of Snow White, currently scheduled to be released with 3 months of each other.

Bridge was faced with a decision, a choice between two evils, neither of which was in his favor.  Should he stretch his light out to reveal what had become of his would-be client or draw the candle closer to inspect the ruins of his own gut?  In the end, the woman won out if only because he was still in a state of shock, and he knew he needed to take advantage of that fact before it wore off and the pain of what had happened to him set in.

Bryan Reviews Toy Story in 3D!!! (A 3D Blu-ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 15th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

 

I can’t believe it has been over a decade since Pixar won me over with Toy Story.  Year after year, Pixar has shown me their films and for three years in a row their films were my absolute favorite of the year. It all started with Toy Story.  I always thought as I’m sure most of you did that when I left my room or house, that my toys were alive and talked and had fun together without me.  Toy Story showed me how this could be real.  Not only did Toy Story create what I dreamed of every day, but it paved the way for every CG film made since then.  Toy Story was the first.  It truly was a milestone and achievement in filmmaking.  And add to that they amazing story, cast, and music.  I whole heartedly love this movie.

‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Remake: NO. JUST NO!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 23rd, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

NOT OKAY.

NOT.

OKAY.

Do you remember the first time you saw The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Walked into a theater, got the red V marked on your forehead, received your baggie containing your tools. Maybe, like me, you got to go up on stage and be the bride, throw the bouquet that Janet catches. You were nervous, excited, and sure that the experience was going to change your life.

Hi Bryan Here….

I remember watching Degrassi growing up way back when it first started.  It has changed quite a bit in its 10th season but the core of the stories are still there.  I remember when Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes (Jay and Silent Bob) got involved with the Degrassi franchise.  This 10th season had 44 episodes and was previously known as Degrassi: The Next Generation but dropped ‘The Next Generation’ part for this 10th season.  This was quite fun to watch, but I’d imagine teens and pre teens would enjoy it more than I did.

Hi Bryan Here….

Earlier today in anticipation for the release of Lion King 3D and for tis first time on blu-ray, I had the pleasure to sit in a virtual roundtable interview with Tony Bancroft.  Bancroft was one of the supervising animators on ‘Lion King’.  He also directed Disney’s ‘Mulan’.  Before we started with the interview he drew by hand a picture of Pumbaa.  It was amazing to see him bring that character to life.  After that I watched one of the extras from the upcoming ‘Lion King’ blu-ray and then on to the Q&A.  Enjoy.  And don’t forget to get the ‘Lion King’ On Blu-Ray!!

Classic Waxxx: Jethro Tull “A”

by NapkinArt on Aug 23rd, 2011

Being a Jethro Tull fan for a number of years now I can honestly say the album “A” is sort of the ‘odd duck’ in the band’s early catalog. “A”, which was originally intended as band leader Ian Anderson’s first solo record, became the band’s 13th studio album in 1980, and has been met with much controversy and criticism with casual and die hard Jethro Tull fans for years.

‘Me and the Devil’

Airdate 7/24/2011

True Blood episode “Me and the Devil”, while good in its own right, was clearly a filler episode. It moved and built up the many story lines that the show is working this season. On that note, it almost feels like the show is trying too hard to keep this many story lines going and keeping them interesting. The episode itself felt rushed and hurried. The transitions from scene to scene were abrupt and not what I’m used to when watching True Blood. Each scene basically gave us 5 minutes with each story line. It was a little on the frustrating side. It was like getting a massage five minutes at a time, when it starts to feel good it changes. But again as a whole I did enjoy the episode. Now on to a re-cap of the story lines!

Check Out The ‘Paranormal Activity 3’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 22nd, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Of course there was going to be a third film.  The first two made hundreds of millions of dollars.  This third one is yet another prequel to the first film and even the second film.  Remember in the first ‘Paranormal Activity‘ film, where the female character told us that this demon haunted her from a very early age?  It’s set in that time period.

Hi Bryan Here….

I remember when I was around 11 years old and a friend or two of mine would walk to the local “mom & pop” video store and rent videos during the summer and have movie marathons all day.  Now we were very avid horror and exploitation fans.  Even at that early age.  We picked up Troma films, Argento films, early Raimi films, and pretty much any title that had explicit violence, horror, or nudity.  “Hobo With A Shotgun” is pure exploitation “over the top” badass fun.

Some pretty great classic titles this week, but a fairly weak new release week.  But  I love the heavy classic title weeks.  It gives me a chance to watch some excellent filmmaking and remember all the films I saw when I was younger.  And the best is, that most of them have the HI-DEF treatment, so it is like watching the movie for the first time.  Some great titles.  Classic Titles.

Hi Bryan Here…

I remember going to Disney World when I was about five years old back in the early 80’s.  I went with my parents and some of my parents friends and their kid.  Words cannot begin to describe what it was like going to The Magical Kingdom or Epcot.  See back then, they didn’t have Universal Studios or Nickelodeon, or any of the other movie themed rides.  It all was about Disney characters.  And their one very HUGE draw was that I got to meet all my favorite Disney characters in person.

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

TOP 133 FILMS OF THE LAST DECADE (#100 – #85)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 4th, 2010

Here we are in the Top 100 films of the last decade.  There are some great titles on here.  Enjoy.  As usual, there is the movie title name along with the date it was released, a mini review/memory of the film and a link that takes you to AMAZON where you can purchase the flick for a great price.

100_ Signs – August 2, 2002

I really enjoyed this Alien film from M. Night.  Total Hitchcockian throughout.  That scene with the alien stuck in the pantry of and Mel Gibson tries to get a glimpse of it with the  reflection of a butcher knife is so tense.  If aliens do come to Earth, hopefully they are not hostile.  A very good solid alien film.  Very tense.

99_ Garden State – July 28, 2004

Zach Braff shows the world he is a very talented director, not just a comedic tv actor.  This film has tons of heart and soul in it.  You really feel for the characters. Nothing is forced and it moves along nicely.  Natalie Portman is so lovely in this film. The soundtrack is one of the best of the decade as well. Go Shins.  I wish more films were like this. I look forward to more directorial efforts from Braff.

98_ A Serious Man – October 2, 2009

The latest film from The Coen Bros.  A very dark comedy.  The story follows a Jewish man who has a family, a job, and everything else but respect.  Everyone shits on him.  I can say that if you are NOT jewish or you do not have any jewish friends then you most likely wont get a lot of the film, but this film is hilarious.  This is suppose to be the Coen Bros. Biopic piece about themselves growing up.  I can relate.  Pretty funny.  A must see.

97_ Dawn of the Dead – March 19, 2004

The only complaint I had about this film is that I wish it wasn’t called Dawn of the Dead, which tells people it is a remake of the Romero classic.  It is not, although same story line in a way, but no.  This zombie thriller is BALLS TO THE WALL awesome.  It has got some of the best deaths, chills, and survival scenarios ever.  The scene where they shoot zombies that look like famous people is priceless.  Love this film.  Go James Gunn and Zach Snyder.  Some of the best head shots in cinema history.

96_ Match Point – January 20, 2006

Another Woody Allen film.  This marks the first in a set of films that Woody filmed in England.  This certainly does not play out like a typical Woody Allen film.  It is not funny whatsoever.  It is a serious drama.  So well played out and acted and directed and written.  Everything really.  This film follows a young man who meets a girl from a wealthy family.  The family takes him in as one of their own, buying him and their daughter a house and getting him the job of a lifetime.  This guy has a long affair with the beautiful Scarlett Johanssen.  When our main character wants to break off the affair he does so by murder.  What a film.  A must see.

95_ Hard Candy – April 14, 2006

What a brutal film this was.  A young Ellen Paige is the star in this film.  I literally had the flop sweats when I saw this in the theatre because I was so tense.  Wheww.  Just thinking about it gives me shivers.  Tons of twists and turns in this film. I do not want to give anything away, but seriously….see this film.  It will make you sweat.

94_ Super Troopers – February 16, 2001

Broken Lizards first feature film hit the jackpot and changed our lives forever with the immediate cult icon Officer Rod Farva.  This film follows the Highway patrol team and their hilarious antics with civilians.  People still today quote this film and will for some time.  I remember laughing out loud in the theatre for fifteen minutes straight at the biker line.  If you like comedy, then get off your ass and see this film if you have not already.  You will love it.

93_ Best In Show – September 29, 2000

A wonderful mockumentary from Chris Guest about Dog Shows and the people who take their dogs there.  We all know these types of people.  Dog People.  And it is all sorts of funny to watch all of their worlds crumble.  Oh the nut rant is prime.  This is dry humor at its best and your gut will hurt from all the laughter throughout the film. Stellar performaces all around.  More please.

92_ Fahrenheit 9/11 – June 23, 2004

An amazing documentary about the 9/11 attacks and the events leading up to it and all the questions we had about it.  We just didn’t know the truth, but we do now, and it was not pretty.  Michael Moore was the first to show us the truth on this.  This documentary will anger you and make you laugh and cry.  This is what I think is the start of the fall of George W. Bush.  You see who he really is in this film.  Go M.M.

91_ Black Snake Moan – March 2, 2007

I really did enjoy this little film.  I believe this film was loosely based on the great blues legend R.L. Burnside’s life.  It definitely has the great music to back it up.  Sam Jackson plays a old genuine God Fearing man who comes across a beaten up tramp played by the gorgeous Christina Ricci and takes her in to his home to get her well.  She was left for dead.  She gets all better and Sam Jackson chains her to his heater and he aims to cure her of her wickedness and make her a better person.  It is really good.  See it.

90_ Grindhouse – April 6, 2007

Oh yes. Tarantino and Rodriguez pay homage to the 70’s grindhouse experience by making a double feature of badassery, exploitation, and violence.  An allstar cast in both films.  One film deals with zombies and the other film deals with a crazed killer in a kick ass car.  The soundtrack is out of this world.  If you want to get a group of your friends together and pound a ton of beer and eat tons of junk food, then put this double feature on and enjoy the hell out of it.  So much fun.  I look forward to another double feature in the future from these two brilliant filmmakers.  Thank you for giving me this pleasure.

88_ Thirst – July 31, 2009

A really fantastic Korean Vampire film from the director of OLDBOY.  I like this one so much for its way of showing you every aspect of being a vampire and the guilt it causes and your need to feed.  More vampire films like this.  This director is amazing.  Not too much gore but just enough.

87_ Burn After Reading – September 12, 2008

I loved this Coen Brothers comedy.  Not a lot of people did.  It grows on you.  It is a comedy dram about the US government.  Starring George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Frances McDormand, Richard Jenkins, and John Malkovich.  If you liked Big Lebowski, you will like this film.  Tons of laughs.

86_ Night Watch – February 17, 2006

The first film in this Russion Horror trilogy.  This film is pretty epic and I believe is the biggest budget film Russia has ever done.  There are shape shifters, ghosts, murders, robots, monsters, vampires and much much more.  The visuals are stunning.  I highly recommend these films.  Classic Good vs. Evil here.

85_ Sin City – April 1, 2005

Finally the comic book of hardcore comes to the big screen.  I love these comics and the fact that Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino brought in Frank Miller to make this shows me just how brilliant they are in filmmaking.  Pretty much shot for shot and the same dialogue as the comic.  It is beautiful.  I love this modern Noir style.  Mickey Rourke as Marv is genius.  This is gruesome, funny and action packed.  Brittany Murphy does a stellar job in this too.  Cannot wait for the rest of the comics in comic book form.

Spider-Man The Musical is Worse Than We Feared

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 10th, 2010

If you have not heard that Spider-Man will be a stage musical, then you are late  to the party.  Spider-Man as a musical does not work.  The music was written by U2’s Bono and The Edge.  So if you are wondering if it will be dog shit then there is good news….It most certainly is.

Reeve Carney who will be playing Spider-Man sang on Good Morning America “Boy Falls From the Sky” this morning.  It is so goddamn sappy and corny that I wanted to stab my ears.  Literally the first line in the song is “You can change your mind, but you cannot change your heart!”  Fuck Me!  The song is not even about spider-man really.  The clip below will show you.

If the song does not make you want to puke then how about director Julie Taymor (Titus and Across the Universe) showing all of us the costume designs for the Green Goblin.

I mean really!  That is a Green Goblin Costume?  It looks more like something out of a bad French Ballet.  Is that a tutu he is wearing or a grass skirt?  FABULOUS!

And here is another costume design of something that I have no idea what it is.  It looks like a cross between the robot from Metropolis and a character I hated to battle in Tekken 3 ten years ago.

This is so bad that it goes beyond belief that this is actually going to happen.  Holy Shit I need to take a nap.  Below is the song.
