Film Review: ‘Interstellar’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 4th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

interstellar-11

It’s obvious with ‘Interstellar‘ that Stanley Kubrick’s2001: A Space Odyssey‘ is Christopher Nolan’s favorite film, which is no secret if you’ve seen interviews with the ‘Dark Knight‘ director. Armed with a core plot that all life on Earth will one day soon need to find a new planet to live on to survive, ‘Interstellar‘ dares to define a new meaning to the term science-fiction. This visually stunning movie is a gift to watch on the big screen, particularly in IMAX, and tries so hard to deliver on both the science fiction aspects of space as well as our complex human emotions. With a film that has so much going for it in it’s near three-hour run time, and so many big set pieces and theories, there are things that are bound to stick the landing, and other things that are destined to fall flat.

Film Review: ‘Love is Strange’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

For most, your wedding day is usually the happiest day of your life. It is where you tell the world in front of your friends, family, and God that you are committing to sharing your life with that special someone until you are no more. But for Ben (John Lithgow) and George (Alfred Molina), a gay couple who have been together for 39 years, are finally getting hitched in New York City. I wouldn’t go as far as to say this is the happiest day of their lives, since we can already see in the opening minutes of the film that they have both led very happy lives together in their great Manhattan apartment, as they are getting ready like any other normal day for their wedding ceremony.

Top 10 List of Reboots We Don’t Want To See!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Terminator-5-TV-Series


Like Bill Murray once said, “he’s got to be stopped. And I have to stop him.” You might have thought he was talking about a weather-predicting rodent, but no, he was actually talking about studio executives (the “he” is collective). Hollywood, like any business, is in it to make money. Therefore, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that they choose to rehash tried and true film formulas over and over again rather than take a chance on something new. While this is understandable (albeit infuriating), it doesn’t excuse the idea that EVERYTHING deserves to be re-made. Some films, like priceless art, should never be re-made and re-sold. Every time a classic film gets re-made, audiences hold their collective breaths and hope that it won’t be a straight shot in “the feels” (that nostalgic part of your brain that remembers, with fondness, all your pop culture favorites).

Michael “explosion” Bay is releasing his latest bastardization of 80’s culture unto the world in the shape of the beloved “heroes in a half shell”. In case you haven’t been following, this has been one cluster mess after another. From alien origins to white-washed villains, this movie begs the questions: “does Michael Bay hate the 80’s? Did he have some traumatically horrific experience with toys when he was a kid? Why does he have to take a giant dump on our collective fond memories time after time?”  Read the rest of this entry »

Bryan’s Review of ‘The Campaign’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 10th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I had high hopes for ‘The Campaign’.  It seems like a flawless formula on paper by having Will Ferrell and Zach Galafianakis play bitter political rivalries for an upcoming town election.  Add director Jay Roach to the picture who is known for the ‘Meet the Parents’ and ‘Austin Powers’ series to make a brilliant comedic film.  Unfortunately, after the first half of the film, ‘The Campaign’ nose dives into unfunny and dull dialogue and story telling.  It was as if everybody had to finish the film in two days and they just put together the last part of the film in  matter of hours.  I was disappointed.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Here is the trailer for ‘The Campaign’ Starring Will Ferrell, Zack Galifianakis, Jason Sudeikis, Katherine LaNasa, Dylan McDermott, John Lithgow, Dan Aykroyd, and Brian Cox.  The film is directed by Jay Roach (Austin Powers).  Official Synopsis: When long-term congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) commits a major public gaffe before an upcoming election, a pair of ultra-wealthy CEOs plot to put up a rival candidate and gain influence over their North Carolina district. Their man: naive Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis), director of the local Tourism Center. At first, Marty appears to be the unlikeliest possible choice but, with the help of his new benefactors’ support, a cutthroat campaign manager and his family’s political connections, he soon becomes a contender who gives the charismatic Cam plenty to worry about.  Enjoy.

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….

For the upcoming season of Dexter on Showtime starting at the end of the summer, a couple of excellent actors will be lending their talents to this killer show according to Vulture.   I think one of the many things this show has going for it is its uncanny ability to get amazing performances for cameos in their seasons.

Hi Bryan Here…

Back when I posted my most anticipated films for the year 2011, this film made my list.  But it was not called “Rise of the Planet of the Apes”. This title was added later.  This looks to be a very early prequel to “Planet of the Apes”.
