‘Midsommar’ Blu-ray Announced!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 19th, 2019

One of the best films of the year is coming to Blu-ray in time for Halloween. ‘Midsommar‘, directed by Ari Aster (Hereditary) will be coming to Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy on October 8th from Lionsgate. It will be available digitally and On-Demand a bit before that on September 24th. Unfortunately, this is a bare-bones release without the talked about 3-hour director’s cut of the movie. I guess they’re milking it for a future all-out release.

‘Suspiria’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2019

THE FILM

(Film Review Portion Written by Dan Moran)

The general plot of Suspiria is that Suzy, an American ballerina, enrolls in a Berlin dance academy which is actually a front for a coven of witches. Dakota Johnson plays Suzy and is a revelation in the part since my big dumb brain still associates her with her lifeless performance in 50 Shades of Grey. Tilda Swinton (as usual) puts in some great work as Madame Blanc as just caring enough yet always with an ominous undercurrent to all of her lines. Swinton also dons a ton of makeup to play a Doctor who becomes interested in the coven after one of the academy’s dance members tells him of the evil there before she disappears.

National Lampoon’s Van Wilder‘ came out sixteen years ago and more or less re-lit the fire for National Lampoon. This also paved the way for Deadpool himself Ryan Reynolds, as this was his first feature film in a leading role. Some of the jokes don’t hit too well in our current politically correct culture, but it’s silly enough to have fun with it. It’s just unfortunate that the filmmakers went the gross-out humor route solely and failed to develop these good characters, but that seemed to be the case in 2002. Also, it’s unfortunate that this is not a new remaster or transfer. This is the same video and audio presentations from the 2007 Blu-ray release, which of course had its problems. I imagine Lionsgate is trying to make a quick and easy dollar for the release of ‘Deadpool 2‘, hence this re-release that has no new extras on it. Still, if you’re a fan of the film and want the Digital Copy, this is a way to get it.

4K UHD Review: ‘Hell or High Water’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 19th, 2018

THE FILM


(The film portion was written by Liz Tramer)

Director David Mackenzie’s latest film, Hell or High Water, is a perfect example of how slow and steady wins the race.  The film is a little slow to start, but once it gets going, it’s fantastic. The story centers around two brothers, Toby  Howard (Chris Pine) and Tanner Howard (Ben Foster) who are desperately trying to save their mother’s farm and keep it in the family. The brothers are literally under the gun to find the money and decide the quickest way to make the deadline is to rob banks. Toby is intelligent, calm, cool and collected and the brains behind the operation. Tanner is an ex con hothead who relishes the crime spree and does little to control either his rage or his inclination toward violence.

4K UHD Review: ‘Wonder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 8th, 2018

THE FILM


Back in 2012, author R.J. Palacio released her novel ‘Wonder‘, which caught on worldwide quickly and became one of the most heartfelt and dare I say it “wonderful” stories of recent memory. It was only a matter of time before it was optioned into a movie. Luckily Lionsgate picked it up where author/director Stephen Chbosky (Perks of Being a Wallflower) signed on to take on the task in adapting this fantastic story for the big screen. ‘Wonder‘ follows a young boy named Auggie (Jacob Tremblay) who was born with Treacher Collins syndrome, which is a genetic disorder that causes facial disfiguration at birth, which can cause problems with hearing, eyesight, and breathing.

Hey guys, Jana here, 

Can one possibly get enough ‘John Wick‘? The answer to that question is “Hell No!!!” Well Starz and Lionsgate TV have joined forces to bring us ‘The Continental‘, an serial adaptation of the films inspired by the film and occasionally featuring the Baba Yaga himself, Keanu Reeves.

Ethan Hawke has ’24 Hours To Live’ on Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 12th, 2018

Why did this movie not get a major theatrical release? I have no idea. This movie called ‘24 Hours To Live‘ stars Ethan Hawk and produced by the guys who helped make ‘John Wick‘. I mean, this has gold written all over it. Not sure what bonus features will be available, but there is none listed at the moment. Let’s hope that changes. You can currently see the film On Demand, but the Blu-ray will be available on February 6th.

‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer’ is coming to Blu-ray!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 2nd, 2018

One of my favorite and Top movies of 2017 is coming to Blu-ray on January 23rd. Of course, I’m talking about ‘The Killing of a Sacred Deer‘ from director Yorgos Lanthimos (The Lobster). The film stars Colin Farrell, Nicole Kidman, and Barry Keoghan. I have described this movie as a sibling to Stanley Kurbick’s film ‘Eyes Wide Shut‘, because of the glaring similarities. Not only is it similar, but it’s a damn good film that stays with you long after you watch it. There looks to be only one extra here and no 4K UHD release yet, but let’s hope that changes. I can’t wait to watch this again and  relive the awkwardness and suspenseful situations this movie delivers.

‘Leatherface’ is ripping up the Blu-ray World!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2017

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre‘ is perhaps one of the most terrifying and best horror films to ever be released. That was back in 1974. Tobe Hooper and that film really paved the way for many filmmakers and the horror genre over the years that continues to this day. We’ve seen sequels, prequels, reboots, remakes, and everything in between since then. The newest film is simply called ‘Leatherface‘, which takes its cue from the original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3‘ film. I haven’t seen this yet, but I’ve heard from a few people that it’s the best film since the original one in 1974. I’m not sure what to think about that, but I’ll have answers shortly for you on this. ‘Leatherface‘ acts as a prequel to other films as we get to see how ‘Leatherface‘ became the maniacal being he is known to be.
