Film Review: ‘Everest’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 16th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

everest-movie-2015

Based on the 1996 Mount Everest Disaster where several climbers lost their lives, director Baltasar Kormákur (‘2 Guns‘) shows us what happened in those days that led up to that horrifying experience. I consider myself a little bit of a daredevil here and there. I love to bungee jump whenever I can, although I admit it’s been a while since I have, but I don’t think I have the guts to climb a mountain like Everest, which is the tallest mountain on the globe at almost 30,000 feet in the air. But year after year, people trek out there and climb it and succeed, where others don’t.

Film Review: ‘Southpaw’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

When it comes to the world of boxing, there have been many films and documentaries that have been released on the violent sport. Some of the movies have done so well both financially and critically, that they have taken home more than one Oscar, and dare I say it, this new boxing film, ‘Southpaw‘ is the best boxing movie since Sylvester Stallone put on boxing gloves in 1976 and put on one hell of a show against Carl Weathers in ‘Rocky‘. Despite its minor flaws, ‘Southpaw‘ is an amazing film from top to bottom. Director Antoine Fuqua (‘Training Day‘) has perfectly transformed Jake Gyllenhaal into a scary, muscular, bloodied monster of a fighter, who you would never want to step into the ring with.

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage12

Two great family film companies, Walden Media and Jim Henson Productions, are joining forces to produce, and develop an original story about a rather nasty subject, a pagan demon who punishes wicked children at Christmas. Did I mention he has horns and looks fifty shades of creepy? They’ve gone with the title ‘Happy Krampus!‘ so they’re going to make it a family-friendly project with a live-action production.

Bryan’s Best and Worst of 2014 List!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Wright_39_s_Top_10_Films_of_2014

I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by. 2014 was an interesting year to say the least, most of which was great. Movie-wise, I think 2014 had some excellent films filling its theaters, but of course it had some real stinkers too. Below is my list of the Best and Worst films of 2014 with some added categories down at the bottom. I believe this year I watched over 145 new films, theatrically speaking and it was very difficult to narrow them down from 25. After some chocolate snacks covered in marshmallow cream, I finally had a TOP 10. But when you talk about the Best movies, you have to mention the worst too. My list tends to be a tad bit different from others, but hey, I’m twisted. I highly encourage you to seek out these movies – good or bad and enjoy the rest of your year.

Janet’s Film Review: ‘Nightcrawler’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 30th, 2014

Janet W., Here…

nightcrawler-jake-gyllenhaal-riz-ahmed-600x399

Nightcrawler opens with the moonshining down on the city of angels, we see a thief, Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in action.  He is cutting away chain-linked fence when a security guard spots him.  A bright light shines on the sunken face and wiry form of Bloom.  (According to IMDB, Jake Gyllenhaal lost 20 lbs. for the role.)  The rent-a-cop asks for ID, but Bloom repeatedly diverts his requests with distracting comments and questions.  Bloom is a fast-talker.  Cut to bargaining with a scrap metal yard foreman in an attempt to sell the copper wire and chain-linked fence Bloom had collected.  The foreman doesn’t waive on his offer and resolve, but Bloom rapidly counters like a string of firecrackers pushing for better pay.  The foreman refuses to give Bloom a penny more than his offer.  What does Bloom do in response to this let down?  He asks for a job.  As plainly as he can, the foreman assures Bloom that he would never hire a thief.  Scraping to make ends meet and living in squalor, Bloom is desperate for a fast track to success.

Film Review: ‘NightCrawler’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 29th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

It’s very rare to me when a film stays with me for weeks on end. It’s been more than a month and I still can’t stop thinking about Dan Gilroy’s directorial debut ‘Nightcrawler‘. It’s a smooth yet very suspenseful thriller about a friendless sociopath who decides one day he is going to start a career in freelance TV new reporting, where we see him succeed as well as go to the metaphorical “dark side”. This sociopath is played by the impressive Jake Gyllenhaal who (to put lightly) has major psychological issues. We’ve seen him play something similar before in ‘Enemy‘ and ‘Donnie Darko‘, but here, he’s on a whole different level. It’s easy for me to say that Jake Gyllenhaal plays the most frightening character in film in the last decade.

Film Review: ‘Enemy’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

enemy-movie-review-09102013-185137

Director Denis Villeneuve is on a roll here. Denis worked with Jake Gyllenhaal on the hit movie last year called ‘Prisoners‘, which starred Gyllenhaal, Hugh Jackman, Paul Dano, and Terrence Howard. But not a lot of people know that Denis and Gyllenhaal filmed a movie right before they started ‘Prisoners‘, but has not been released until now. That film is called ‘Enemy‘, and it completely hypnotized me for the entire 90 minutes.

The ‘World of Warcraft’ Movie Will Be Directed By…..

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 20th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

orc_grunt

Legendary Pictures announced today and the San Diego Comic Con their director for the long awaited live-action version of ‘World of Warcraft’, based on the expansive online game. At one point within the past few years, Sam Raimi was in talks to direct this project, but all of that fell through so he could direct ‘Oz The Great and Powerful‘ and reboot his ‘Evil Dead‘ series. Needless to say, Raimi is no longer involved in the production.

Bryan’s Review of ‘End of Watch’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 13th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘End of Watch’ is one of the best cop films of recent memory.  Director and writer David Ayer captures the life of the L.A.P.D on duty and off duty.  Ayer is no stranger to the police officer story line, as he wrote ‘Training Day’ and ‘Dark Blue’.  But with ‘End of Watch’, he scraps the bad and corrupt cop vibe to more of a realistic setting with good cops on the job.  The guerilla camera-work really puts you in the middle of intense situations that cops walk into daily.  ‘End of Watch’ is one thrilling ride from start to finish.

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival.
