Hi all, Jana here,

endo-silence-full

 

Martin Scorsese (‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘ and ‘The Departed‘) is one of my favorite directors. This hasn’t been a secret because I rave on his work, constantly. Well, right now Scorsese is going to get the chance to make a film he’s had on his list for more than a decade. I can’t imagine how that must feel to wait for over 10 years to do a film and it finally comes together! The center of attention in this announcement is that it’s for the film of the novel ‘Silence‘. Novelist Shusako Endo had given permission for the novel adaptation to be made once before in 1971. As with everything in Hollywood these days, a re-make is in the works. This time, a bigger budget, bigger stars, bigger director and , probably, a bigger audience.

Martin-Scorsese-directing-on-set-of-The-Departed

 

Martin Scorsese is a filmmaker of genius levels.Most people have seen at least one of his masterpieces and can tell you some of the elements he usually employs, like the criminal underworld, prolific use of profanity and Leonardo DiCaprio. Using his fail safe methods, themes and switching Robert DeNiro for  DiCaprio is a combination that lands him with award nominations and wins. He has directed many actors into the land of accolades as well. Coming high off DiCaprio’s Golden Globe nomination and subsequent win for his role as Jordan Belfort in ‘The Wolf of Wall Street‘.

Hi Bryan Here…

I just love when Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese team up and make movies.  They have done so many good films together that have been both critically successful and box office successful.  So why would they stop that?  Well they have no plans to stop.  They are teaming up again to make “The Wolf Of Wall Street”.

‘King Cohen’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 18th, 2018

Larry Cohen is one of those old-school filmmakers that has been around a long time and is universally loved in the business. Cohen is mostly known for his B-movie films and having a penchant for not taking “no” for an answer. His filmmaking methods are pioneering and risky, but all have been a big success in their own way. Over the past few decades, Choen has amassed a ton of great friendships with other filmmakers, who all talk about Cohen her in this documentary called ‘King Cohen‘.

Favorite Movie Scene of the Day #8!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m sure there are going to be a ton of Martin Scorsese directed scenes in this column, but the first one is definitely from Casino, which had Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci come together for a third time to make a film again. With the huge success of Goodfellas, De Niro and Pesci basically play very similar characters to that film, but this one is set in Las Vegas in the Tangiers casino, which is a fake casino, but based off the real life people and Italian mafia they were all connected to. Casino is a fascinating film and one of the better gangster movies of all time.

Soundtracks we want to see released on Vinyl!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 15th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

preview

I just love soundtracks to movies. I always have and I believe I always will. There is something about a score to a film that just perks me up in all the right ways and inspires my creative side, whether it be to write a screenplay or go back an watch that old film I love. Music is an integral part to films and is considered to be the mojo of every movie. I’m sure we’ve all seen that odd YouTube video of the final scene in Star Wars: A New Hope, where Han Solo, Luke Skywalker, and Chewbacca walk down a crowded arena to receive their medals to zero music. It’s super weird and awkward with no music, but just random sound effects of footsteps and a rare cough, laugh, and Chewie’s roar. John Williams did such a great job, as he always does with Star Wars music, but that final scene of music really puts your emotions on full blast. It’s all from the soundtrack too.

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

the-oscars-thumbnail

The 89th Oscars were announced today. These are supposed to be the Best Achievements in Filmmaking on all levels. However, year after year, The Academy and “their infinite wisdom” choose to pick dull films that should never be nominated. In fact, I bet you could go through most of the Winners of each year and realize you only watched that film or performance once and never thought about it again. At least The Academy had a good bit of diversity this year, but other than that – these Oscar nominations are boring, dull, and made me go to sleep just watching the equally not-fun announcement telecast.

Film Review: ‘Silence’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1481451621_silence-movie

Martin Scorsese certainly has had a fantastic career in film. From films like ‘Raging Bull‘ to ‘Goodfellas‘ and ‘Casino‘, to ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘The Departed‘, and the recent ‘Wolf of Wall Street‘ – it’s easy to say that Scorsese is one of the best filmmakers still out there today. Scorsese may be know for a lot of gangster and super violent films over his career, but he has made a variety of other movies in different genres, including the recent kid’s film ‘Hugo‘. He is also a big supporter in world cinema, making it easier for people around the world to experience new filmmakers from other countries. One genre Scorsese is fairly into is the religion genre.

4k UHD Review: ‘Goodfellas’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

By the time 1990 came around, Martin Scorsese had already made several masterpieces in film, which continue to be praised and talked about to this day. With the likes of ‘Raging Bull‘, ‘Taxi Driver‘, and ‘The Last Waltz‘, we all knew that Scorsese was one of the finest filmmakers and storytellers around. Even with just those three previous films mentioned, you’d know you were in for a treat when Scorsese wanted to show you something. Then 1990 came around and Scorsese once again changed the film community with a movie called ‘Goodfellas‘, which was his big foray into the whole mafia genre.
