Hey guys, Jana here,

We’ve talked before about the newest nominee for the animated-to-live-action treatment, ‘The Jungle Book‘. Rudyard Kipling’s novel is being given a lot of attention right now, both from Warner Bros. and Disney. There was a year where we got two films about dueling magicians, ‘The Prestige‘ and ‘The Illusionist‘. We got two animated films about bugs with ‘A Bug’s Life‘ and ‘Antz‘. I don’t get it, but apparently there’s no such thing as too many projects on the same subject, case in point, the over-saturation in comic book ventures.

Film Review: ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 11th, 2014

Ben K., Here…

maxresdefault

Back in 2011, I ended my “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” review excited about what the future held for the rebooted series. As the screen went dark and the credits of “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” began to roll, I realized my high expectations had been met just three years later. If “Rise” hit all the right notes of an introductory chapter, then “Dawn” was even more on pitch with the rising action of a second act.

Hello, Jana here,

eahjE5ztbkz3ppgnK0e7ACX1oUY

Disney has always been more than just an animated studio, but when you produce such awesomeness as ‘Sleeping Beauty‘, ‘Robin Hood‘, ‘Peter Pan‘, ‘Aladdin‘ and ‘Beauty and the Beast‘ it’s not something that is always remembered. Plus, we begin life learning that a Disney movie is something animated with catchy songs, at least that’s what my kids learned first. The studio has been finding different ways to get more bang for their buck for a long time. That’s why there will be a celebrated release, MAYBE a sequel in theaters, then a third or more straight to DVD. Take that same movie with established characters and it pops up on the Disney Channel as a brand new animated series. Not to mention the obligatory Disney park tie-in and the countless branding options from clothing to toys to bedding and all things in between.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Dawn-of-the-Planet-of-the-Apes-posters

We knew we were getting the sequel, and now we have a trailer, and it makes me so excited to see that somebody is doing these films right. The new film, ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes‘ will release on July 11th, 2014 with Andy Serkis returning as the leader primate, Caesar. There is no James Franco in this one, but we get Gary Oldman as the leader of the humans along with Jason Clarke, Judy Greer, Keri Russell and Kodi-Smit McPhee. Matt Reeves is directing this sequel, which he directed ‘Cloverfield‘, so I expect great things here.

‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Film Review!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Welcome back to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson‘s version of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey‘, which covers the first six chapters of the 19 chapter book, is very faithful to the original material. Jackson has gone back to the world that made him a household name and literally translated verbatim from page to screen, which is sure to blow the minds of fans of the book. However, at its almost 3 hour run-time, ‘The Hobbit‘ feels sluggish and never seems to pick up any sort of pace.  That being said, i have no doubt this movie will make hundreds of millions of dollars before the year is over.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here we go again with another Geek Deal of the Day.  Until midnight tonight, you have the opportunity to get this set for super cheap, in fact the cheapest it has ever been.   This is that BADASS ultimate movie set of Lord of the Rings: The Extended cuts.  These are the versions to watch.  These put the theatrical versions…well not to shame….but let’s just say they are far superior.  I love taking a coupe of days out of each year and spending the entire day watching all three of the films in a row.  Currently this AWESOME bluray set is 64% off, making this Lord of the Rings hi-def set $43.49.  Take advantage. Stock up for holiday gifts or treat yourself.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.

Hi Bryan Here…

Here we go again with another Geek Deal of the Day.  Unlike the other one, I have no idea when this will end.  It could be in 10 minutes or it can be a week.  I have no idea, so be on the safe side and get one or two of these quickly.  This is that BADASS ultimate movie set of Lord of the Rings: The Extended cuts.  These are the versions to watch.  These put the theatrical versions…well not to shame….but let’s just say they are far superior.  I love taking a coupe of days out of each year and spending the entire day watching all three of the se films in a row.  Currently this AWESOME bluray set is 58% off making this Lord of the Rings hi-def set $49.99.  Take advantage.

Howdy again true believers.  FedMex Here….

First and foremost, my sincerest apologies for taking so long to finally watch this film.  A very selfish college buddy of mine decided that he would get married the same weekend that Rise of the Planet of the Apes was released.  I was unfortunately on a plane while this film was gracing screens across the country, and as an enthusiast who actually owns the five original Planet of the Ape movies on VHS, I refuse to forgive my friend for acting like a proverbial monkey throwing his own feces and deciding that a future with a woman he loves was more important than Andy Serkis reprising his role as a digitized ape.

Ben K. Here….

I can’t say I was ever a big fan of the Planet of the Apes series, and I certainly wouldn’t claim to have enjoyed Tim Burton’s misguided 2001 remake of the 1968 original. Having said that, I think there were some interesting ideas and the occasional burst of exciting storytelling in the five year (1968-1973) franchise. The first, starring Charlton Heston and directed by Franklin J. Schaffner (of Patton fame), was definitely the crown jewel. The best compliment I can pay Rupert Wyatt’s 2011 series reboot, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, is that I think the crown jewel is still to come.

Hi Bryan Here….

Playing catch up.  So this is a say late, but that’s better than a week right?  Well anyway, this is a pretty large week for releases so let us jump right in and get to all the goodies.  Some of the must own blu-rays include ‘Sucker Punch’, Lord of the Rings, plus some other goodies.   As usual, in this article, you will get some info about the disc and the extras that come with the movie as well as a personal opinion about the movie and a link to purchase the film over at AMAZON where you can save quite a bit of money, and it will give a small percentage kick back to this site so we can continue bringing you excellent stories and sales.

Enjoy and Here We Go!!
