It was a lot of fun to say the least.  Here is one of our infamous ReCast segments. We went ahead  and recast the iconic film ‘Taxi Driver‘, which is one of the best films of all time that starred Robert De Niro and Jodi Foster, and was directed by Martin Scorsese. There is no way we can replace any of the amazing actors aboard here, but in this day and age, it is more likely to happen than not. So here are some of our suggestions on who should play which role?

Jana B. here,

Warren Beatty

Warren Beatty hasn’t been featured on the big screen for quite a while and he is ready to change that. Beatty has had a Howard Hughes-based project perking in his head for 20 years before we’re seeing any tangible sign of its existence. Beatty will direct and star as Hughes, but it will center on Hughes’ assistant and his love interest. Beatty’s wife, Annette Bening and Matthew Broderick have lent their talents to the project and we’re told there may still be a few surprise actors to join, we’re being told perhaps Jack Nicholson?

The Top 10 Gangster Movie List!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 19th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

GangsterListBANNER

Some girls are all into sappy romances or heart touchingly saccharine-sweet movies. Movies that sometime contain a troubled family learning to love a curmudgeonly, absent  grandparent, or a shattered family recovering from the death of one of its immediate member. Sometimes it’s a pet that waltzes, unexpectedly, into a tumultuous atmosphere that teaches everyone to love more before it’s killed in some unimaginative way.

I hate movies like that. I hate books like that and I hate songs like that. If a member of a family is killed, it better be a mafia family, and I get to look forward to their violent, bloody and evil retribution.  I am so fascinated by the inner workings of these ‘families’. I love to see the fronts they use to launder their income and imagine ways I would do it if I was involved.

She starred with Jack Nicholson in ‘Five Easy Pieces‘ and ‘Easy Rider‘. She also starred in ‘House of 1000 Corpses, The Day of the Locusts‘, and ‘Trilogy of Terror‘. She was an amazing woman and a badass actress. She will be missed greatly.

Hi, Bryan Here….

October is here, and that means Halloween is around the corner.  Over the course of October, we will be doing our favorite top 10 horror lists.  We are starting with the top 10 Werewolf films.  I’ve always been a fan of werewolves, and I admit, I have also been deeply afraid of them.  There is something so mysterious and yet so vicious and magical about a werewolf that draws me into any and all films that have something to do with werewolves.  So I present to you, Boomstick’s top 10 Werewolf films. Enjoy.

Hi Bryan Here…

I want you all to give a warm welcome to Boomstick’s new contributing writer, Dr. Joel Hawkins.  He hails from the underground sewers of North Texas and is at least two of the following: gay robot, french polynesian eskimo, slovakian zombie, green blooded canadian, and avatar.  His favorite color is rainbow and when he is not eating cake covered in lucky charms, he is a master at slaying dragons and writing articles about films, television, and music.  Welcome Dr. Joel Hawkins.

Matthew Vaughn (Kick Ass, X-Men: First Class) has a new adventure he’d like to take now that he’s left the School of the Gifted.  Unaware as to whether he’ll direct or produce, Vaughn shared a dream of his with Deadline of hoping to invite Clint Eastwood, Warren Beaty, and Jack Nicholson back to “the lead again” instead of the supporting roles they’ve played so much lately.

Bluray/DVD Releases for the 4th Week of November!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2010

Hi Bryan Here…

The biggest shopping day is upon us and the holiday shopping spree season has already begun.  I am kinda disappointed in this lack of releases this week.  I figured the studios would be pushing their biggest titles this week because it is the largest shopping weekend and weekend of the year.  But they just sort of half-assed it.  Maybe because of all the incredible sales on past releases that have started and will continue on through Monday.  Oh well.  As usual, 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.
