Film Review: ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Denzel Washington

This remake of an 80s television show about a retired CIA operative who now helps regular people in trouble has been in the works for quite some time. I believe it was always going to star the impressive Denzel Washington, but a few directors have been in and out of the director’s chair including Nicolas Winding Refn (‘Drive‘). He bowed out a while ago and the studio asked Antoine Fuqua to helm the project, which he accepted. Fuqua worked with Washington on the Oscar winning film ‘Training Day‘, which also earned Washington an acting Oscar.

Fernando’s Review of ‘The Equalizer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Fernando M., Here….

denzel-washington-the-equalizer

Antoine Fuqua is two men.  He is the director of the critically acclaimed “Training Day,” for starters.  He is also evidently also the man that saw “Taken” a bunch of times.  When you put those experiences together, you get “The Equalizer.” Showcasing Denzel Washington again reprising his role as Denzel Washington, a strong , smooth, moral protagonist that is going to do a bunch of stuff with guns, but somehow still manages to have a part in the script where he gets to dance.  Denzel plays Denzel quite well, so it’s hard to fault him for that.  In this case in particular, he plays action Denzel better than ever!

Trailer for ‘The Equalizer’ Will Blow Your Minds!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jun 12th, 2014

Hi, Jana here,

'Safe House' Premiere - New York

I’m talking about ‘The Equalizer’ today. Denzel Washington, the acting genius from ‘Training Day‘, ‘American Gangster‘ and ‘The Book of Eli‘ is back in a role he’s been born to play. The trailer just dropped on ‘The Equalizer‘. It gave me goosebumps watching this small clip of what HAS got to be an excellent movie! It conjured up feelings of Michael Caine in ‘Harry Brown‘ or Gerard Butler in ‘Law Abiding Citizen‘. I’ve always been a huge fan of action movies, anyway, give me a revenge-based action movie and I’m enthralled!

Hello, Jana here,

A John Grisham novel is like a mug of coffee on a stormy day, a glass of wine after the kids are asleep, or even a Xanax when you want to rip someone’s head off. The point is, it’s a calming, reassuring presence. It’s going to be an intense, legal, thrill ride that has a feel-good ending. Grisham’s tried and true writing style is gripping, authentic and something that lends itself to film adaptation easily. This has been the case with ‘The Firm‘, ‘The Pelican Brief‘, ‘The Client‘ and ‘A Time to Kill‘ among several others. There is even a complete departure from his norm evident in ‘Christmas With The Kranks‘.

Film Review: ‘2 Guns’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 2nd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

2-Guns-trailer

Surprisingly, I had a lot of fun with this action-crime thriller from Baltasar Kromakur, who previously worked on ‘ContrabandMark Wahlberg. I didn’t expect much from this seemingly stale film, but once the end credit sequence started rolling, I only could hope for a sequel and for Denzel Washington and Wahlberg to say ‘Yes’ to more films together, as their on-screen chemistry is the best I’ve seen in a long while. In what could be an off-shoot version of ‘Bad Boys‘, ‘2 Guns‘ packs a lot of explosions, gunfire, and laughs to garner a second viewing. The trailers do not do this film justice, and I’m hoping for a sizable dent in the box office this weekend with this entertaining “shoot-em-up”.

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’.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Flight’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 8th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Flight‘ is a huge and very warm welcome back for director Robert Zemeckis, who for more than a decade now has been making animated motion capture films including ‘A Christmas Carol‘ and ‘The Polar Express‘.  With ‘Flight‘, he is back where he belongs, with big stars and big set pieces.  I’ve really missed Zemeckis’s work over the last decade in the live action arena.  Zemeckis directed the ‘Back to the Future‘ films and ‘Forest Gump‘ to name a couple.  And now, with ‘Flight‘, Zemeckis has proven that he has not lost his touch in any way as this film provides amazing and heartfelt characters, one of the most thrilling plane crashes ever filmed, and beautiful photography.

Hi, Bryan Here….

globes-drink

The Golden Globes were last night and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler killed it. They were amazing.  Even former president Bill Clinton showed up to talk about Spielberg’s ‘Lincoln‘.  Even though I really liked the film ‘Argo‘, I was shocked when it won best film and director for Ben Affleck. I was happy to see ‘Django Unchained‘ win for best supporting actor for Christoph Waltz and screenplay for Tarantino. If this is any pre-cursor to the Oscars, I’d be completely let down if ‘Argo‘ takes it all.  Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great film, but not the best film of the year.  I expect it to and want it to win the best adapted screenplay.  Just my opinion.  Below are the full results from last night’s show.

The Oscar Nominations Are In!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 10th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…..

oscar_statues-4_3_r560

Earlier this morning, Seth MacFarlane and Emma Stone announced the Oscar nominations, which MacFarlane came across as pretty funny.  I’m excited for him to host the Oscars this year.  And, his film ‘Ted‘ actually got nominated. How cool is that?  Below is the full list of Oscar nominations.  Let us know what you think.  We will be posting a separate article soon on Oscar snubs, because believe me, there are many.  And don’t forget, we will be doing our annual LIVE OSCAR COMMENTARY, which will mark the 6th time we have done it.  It promises tons of laughs.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Beasts of the Southern Wild’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 3rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

beasts-of-the-southern-wild-blu-ray

Beasts of the Southern Wild is no doubt in my top-10 list for best films of 2012.  I know most of you haven’t heard of this film, but rest assured, once you see this film – and I urge you to see this film as fast you can- you will not forget it.  Beasts of the Southern Wild is Benh Zeithlin’s feature-length directorial debut, and even though he is only 29 years old, he has a poetic vision that is on par with Stanley Kubrick and Terrence Malick.  Zeithlin’s attention to detail allows the movie to successfully portray backwater Louisiana, magical realism, and a culture’s determination and strength. It is unlike anything I have seen.  Not only is this film entertaining, smart, and creative, it is also important in that it shows a very realistic portrayal of some of the poorest people in present day America as they struggle to survive disasters both man-made and natural.  This is what every indie filmmaker should strive for.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The nominations came in this morning and needless to say, I went into a fit of rage.  I mean I was so mad, I almost wrote a letter.  After going through the list of nominees, while some of the noms were well deserved, many were not, especially in the FILM categories.  There needs to be a serious uprooting process at the Golden Globes where everyone involved in voting needs to be replaced by others who know what they’re doing.

R.I.P. Tony Scott! 1944-2012!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I grew up on Tony Scott films.  From ‘Top Gun’, ‘Days of Thunder’, ‘Beverly Hills Cop II’, ‘Crimson Tide’, ‘True Romance’, and ‘The Last Boy Scout’.  Not to mention several others from the past few years.  Scott committed suicide at the age of 68 by jumping off a bridge near Long Beach.  This is difficult to process, as to why he felt he needed to do this, and how great a filmmaker he was.
