Top 10 Soundtracks We Want To See Released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

say-anything

Many of you might already know that I love listening to movie soundtracks. I always have. Since I was a little tyke who could barely see over a counter, I was infatuated with movie scores and soundtracks, particularly the ‘E.T.‘ original motion picture score and the ‘Beverly Hill Cop‘ soundtrack. From there, my love and passion grew for all types of music. My parents had a pretty good record collection that included all three original ‘Star Wars’ albums, ‘The Wizard of Oz‘, and ‘Star Trek I and II’ to just name a few. Throughout the years, I now have a fun record collection that spans all genres of music from Frank Zappa to Rage Against the Machine, from R.L. Burnside to The Pixies, and so on. Along the way, digging through the dirty stacks of crates at local record shops and estate sales, I became hell bent on having one of the best Soundtrack collections. And over the past several years, I’ve been lucky enough to acquire some very sought after albums. But there are still so many soundtracks that have never found their way to vinyl, either commercially or ever really. So here is a list in the hopes that maybe Varèse Sarabande, Mondo, or Death Waltz will consider releasing these albums in the near future.

Hello, Jana here,

roald-dahl-the-bfg

Roald Dahl is a fantastic author that doesn’t get nearly enough mainstream credit. Film-goers have enjoyed his stories for years and most of us grew up with at least one of them. Favorites like ‘Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory’, ‘The Witches‘, ‘Matilda‘ and ‘Fantastic Mr. Fox‘ are a few examples of Dahl’s work that has been given a big screen treatment. Now we can add to that list ‘The BFG‘.

Steven Spielberg and Tom Hanks Teaming Up Again!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 22nd, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

 

09-steven-spielberg-tom-hanks-1

I’m like any other film-lover and I have favorite directors that I will religiously watch anything they turn out. I love the films of Joss Whedon, Cameron Crowe, Quentin Tarantino and Steven Spielberg among others. Spielberg took a bite out of fame with one of my absolute favorite movies of all-time, ‘Jaws‘ in 1975. Yes, another thing I love is a pun, no matter how bad it can be. Spielberg has far too many epic films to count without devoting a whole article to the greatness that is Spielberg. Some of the highlights are ‘E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial‘, the ‘Indiana Jones‘ films, ‘Schindler’s List‘…and on and on and on.

Film Review: ‘Labor Day’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 30th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

labor-day-review-1

In a shift in tone and subject matter for director Jason Reitman (‘Juno‘, ‘Up In The Air‘), his newest film ‘Labor Day‘ is a sweet tale of love and starting over. Originally written by Joyce Maynard with a screenplay treatment by Reitman himself, this gem of a film is a slice of great pie. Sure, this situation would never play out as it did in the film, but is one that we would hope for. With a stellar cast that includes Kate Winslet, Josh Brolin, Tobey Maguire, J.K. Simmons, Gattlin Griffith, and James Van Der Beek, ‘Labor Day‘ is a holiday I’d revisit again and feel good about it.

We finally get another Spielberg film out on blu-ray.  This time it’s the movie he won the Oscar for, ‘Schindler’s List‘.  It doesn’t look like there are tons of extras as I would have hoped for.  I would just love a commentary by Spielberg on this, but we know Spielberg doesn’t do commentaries.  But below is the full press release, which you can find out what all will be on the disc.  Looking forward to seeing this in HD.

Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Favorite Movies!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 14th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

 

arnoldschwarzenegger

Like most of us, I grew up watching Arnold Schwarzenegger films, which I loved them all.  I would see every new Schwarzenegger film with my dad the day it came out.  It was like a tradition.  From the ‘Terminator‘ films to ‘Predator‘, ‘Twins‘, and all the way up to ‘The 6th Day‘. Enjoying for the most part, all of the films in their own unique way. Needless to say, Arnold has been in my life since I was little, if were on the television, the big screen, or in the form of action figures and comics, his characters have always been there.

Bryan’s Review of ”Amazing Spider-Man’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ is the best Spider-Man film to date.  I can’t believe I’m actually saying that either.  It was just less than a decade or so, that the original Spider-Man film came out.  So how can they be rebooting this franchise and why would they?  I think there are several answers to that question. One might be as simple as making more money.  The last three Spidey films have made tons of money. The opportunity came to make another film, and of course Marvel said “Yes” to that, therefore more money in the pockets of Marvel.  Another reason might be, is that the third Spider-Man film was such a terrible milestone in filmmaking, and acted as a “what not to do” with a superhero franchise, that Marvel thought it would be a good idea to just reboot the series.  And yet, even another reason might be, is that Marvel wanted to go the route of DC Comics and make an edgier more realistic superhero film, similar to what DC Comics did with the Batman franchise.

‘JAWS’ Finally coming to Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 23rd, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

This is AWESOME news.  I’ve been waiting for this film to be released in HI-DEF for quite some time.  It seems like Spielberg and his team are doing it up right.  At least I hope so.  Spielberg did confirm that he will not be changing anything for this release like he did to his film ‘E.T.’.  ‘JAWS’ will be released August 14th, 2012.  No specs or extras have been announced yet, but I imagine within a little bit of time there will be a full list of all the goodies to come with this release.

Hi Bryan Here….

There is so much to like about this film.  I wish the filmmakers of the current generation would stop for a second and take a good look at ‘Super 8’ and take notes.  Everything is there.  J.J. Abrams directed ‘Super 8’ with his childhood hero producing….Steven Spielberg.  This is what filmmaking used to be like.  I know a lot of you will be comparing this film to the likes of ‘E.T.’ or ‘Goonies’.   You might say it brings quite a bit of nostalgic feelings from growing up.  And to me, that is what makes ‘Super 8’ so amazing.

Hi Bryan Here…

This is a little late to the site, but if you haven’t seen the new “SUPER 8” trailer yet, then it will blow you away.  Ad if you have already seen the trailer, I bet you are ready to see it again.  It reminds me of when I was younger and seeing the films back in the early 80’s and how good and inspiring they were.  It has that nostalgic feel to it.

Hi Bryan Here…

Over at HERO COMPLEX, they have a story and interview with J.J. Abrams and he gives us some insight into this world surrounding his film, Super 8.  This film has been top secret, so I don’t know if Abrams is throwing us off or not, but I can;t wait to find out.  It is going to be one thrilling summer.

Ridley Scott talks Alien Prequel…Gonna Be Hardcore

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 3rd, 2010

In a recent interview with Ridley Scott (director of the first Alien movie and Gladiator), he said concerning the two Alien Prequels “will be really nasty and tough to watch.”   He went on to say “We are talking about Gods and engineers. Engineers of space. And were the aliens designed as a form of biological warfare? Or biology that would go in and clean up a planet.”

He also revealed the film will explore the origin of the “Space Jockey” by saying…

“I sat thinking about the franchise, which now has died on the road somewhere way back and lying in the dust, and thought what I should do is go back. In the first ‘Alien’, when John Hurt climbed up and over the top of the rise. There was a massive giant lying in a chair.  The chair was either a form of engine or some piece of technology and I always thought no one has ever asked who was the space jockey?”

Ridley is set to direct the two prequels as of now.

Now I have a hardcore love for all the Alien films.  One of the first films I remember seeing besides E.T. was Aliens in the theater.  My dad took me to see it and I remember loving every bit of and how much it scared me.  I was an Alien fan for life.  Saying that I like all the Alien films but not as much as the first two.  It is good to see the original director come back and make a hardcore movie.  Now i wish it was not a prequel, but more of a re-imagining.  To be honest, most prequels are SHIT.  Just look at the Star Wars prequels.  And hopefully Ridley Scott will redeem himself from his recent turd effort of Robin Hood.
