A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 18th, 2019

“If I could sum A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood up best for you, a boy about 10 years old gave it a standing ovation and it’s not exactly a kid’s movie.”

Mr. Rogers continues to charm on-screen with the newest installation in films that seem to capture the heart and soul of America’s childhood sweetheart in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. This film is a total 180 from last year’s Won’t You Be My Neighbor documentary which focused primarily on Rogers, as this film centers more on journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) and the relationship he lacks with his father (Chris Cooper). It’s not what I was expecting, but I am not mad it’s what I got.

DOCTOR SLEEP – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 6th, 2019

An adult Danny Torrance is still haunted by the ghosts of the Overlook Hotel and his father as he telepathically connects to a young girl who has the shining, but must help save her and defeat a group of inhuman monsters looking to torture and eat their souls in a wonderfully scary sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining, titled Doctor Sleep. Again, written by the horror maestro Stephen King, his novel Doctor Sleep is nothing short of thrilling, exciting, and furthers the story and characters of the Torrance family, while introducing a new sect of evil among us. The brilliant filmmaker Mike Flanagan (Haunting of Hill House) utilizes the slow burn of terror, akin to its predecessor to create a sense of horror here, and works effortlessly.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

The Lion King (2019) – Film Review

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2019

“The Lion King is a soulless remake of the original.”

The Lion King is a soulless remake of the original that is beautiful to look at but (mostly) lacks any charm of the animated classic. In order to even properly discuss this movie one has to acknowledge that all of these Disney remakes are completely unnecessary cash grabs by Disney. I don’t care about that aspect to be honest. They are a business, and businesses need to make money. However, you can’t have a conversation about the substance of the movie if all you do is say how these “live action” remakes are pointless the whole time so I wanted to get that out of the way up front.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco – Film Review!

by Janet White on Jun 13th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is not perfect in its execution, but the story is moving despite its disjointed structure and flow.”

An interesting story comes out the U.S. capitol of “in your face.” In The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Joe Talbot, the director, teams up with Jimmie Fails (Jimmie Fails) for a second time to bring you seemingly Fails’s own story of the journey of living with loss. Orphaned from a drug addict mother and deceased father, Jimmie has lived with a friend, Montgomery Allen (Jonathan Majors) for some unrevealed amount of time. Each day, Jimmie and Mont take the bus to his childhood home. Much to the chagrin of the current owners, Jimmie touches up his ancestral homestead. When ownership of the property suddenly is in flux, Jimmie seizes the moment. What followed enlightened Jimmie’s world and hopefully the viewers in the audience. Read the rest of this entry »

Pet Sematary 4K UHD Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 10th, 2019

Pet Sematary‘ comes back to life with a brand new 2160p 4K UHD image with Dolby Vision and looks and sounds excellent. It’s like watching the film all over again. Stephen King’s excellent novel was adapted in 1989 by director Mary Lambert that focuses on the Creed family moving to the country for a better life where loss, death and family all play a gruesome and horrific part. There are new bonus features as well as some vintage extras imported over here. What an amazing release. Highly Recommended!
