Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

oscarsnominationsheader

We are only a few days away from the 87th annual Oscar ceremony, which airs live this Sunday. Again, we will be delivering a live commentary full of jokes, trivia, facts, winners, losers, and giving away free gifts throughout the night. So please, keep it right here during the Oscars and use the hashtag #boomstickcomics when posting to social media. But, let’s talk about predictions for a minute. I’m sure some of you have put some money down on Oscar pools at works or with your friends to see who comes out the winner this year. There were some excellent movies this year along with some amazing performances, so needless to say, this year will be extremely difficult to predict.

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.

First trailer for ‘Minions’ is finally here!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 4th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

minions-film-2015

 

If you have managed to survive this long without knowing who or what ‘Minions‘ are, you lead a sad life and I pity you. This could also mean you have no children in your life and you, yourself are not a fan of animated kiddie fare. Either way, I want to ask “Why are you reading this?” Don’t go anywhere, I’m glad you’re here. This is something I’m excited to share with you. Minions are fantastically hilarious little denizens that have existed since the beginning and their sole purpose is to serve the most ambitious villains they can find.

Film Review: ‘Birdman’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 22nd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

and-the-oscar-goes-to-could-birdman-be-the-first-superhero-movie-nominated-for-best-picture

It’s a very rare occurrence where a film changes the game on almost every aspect of filmmaking. From acting to camerawork, ‘Birdman‘ literally soars above the rest where fierce emotions of erratic actors are put on display in a chaotic yet darkly comedic setting inside the St. James Theatre on West 44th Street in Manhattan. Not only do these actors turn in Oscar-worthy performances of the highest order, but director Alejandro G. Inarritu (Amores Perros) and cinematographer Emmanuel Lubezki have given us an image so fresh and that pushes the bounds, that this is one of the most pleasing films of the year, visually speaking and unlike anything you might have seen before. Lubezki has worked with Alfonso Cauron on ‘Children of Men‘ and the recent film ‘Gravity‘.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

batman25th

Since we are all still celebrating the 75th anniversary of our favorite hero ‘Batman‘, Warner Bros. has just announced that they will be releasing a special edition of 1989 ‘Batman‘ film that starred Michael Keaton as Batman and Jack Nicholson as The Joker. It will be called ‘Batman 25th Anniversary Two-Disc Edition, and will be on Blu-ray starting November 11th (2 days after my birthday – hint, hint). The new packaging is pretty cool as well and will fit nicely in for those of you who add this to your collection. But the big news is that this set also includes a new film called ‘Batman: The Birth of the Modern Blockbuster‘, which is a look at how the marketing and merchandising for this film set the stage for the rest of the superhero films to present day.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

Film Review: ‘Need For Speed’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

need-for-speed-first-look-06102013-201607

I was trying to think of a movie that was based on a video game that was truly amazing. I couldn’t do it. I went through all of them, and while I enjoyed some of the attempts, nothing really stood out as being unforgettable or even that great. Sure, you have your ‘Resident Evil‘ movies and your ‘Tomb Raider‘ films, but ultimately those are still forgettable and don’t hold up all that well, although they have made a killing at the box office.

Fernando’s ‘Need For Speed’ Review!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2014

Fernando M., Here…

aaron-paul-talks-about-need-for-speed-movie

Every now and then, somebody gets the bright idea to take a video game and turn it into a movie.  Nine times out of ten (and that’s being generous), it is a horrid experience.  But sometimes, when the stars are aligned correctly, a video game movie can actually be awesome.  THIS IS THAT TIME.

Harold Ramis: 1944-2014!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 24th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Harold Ramis

This just sucks beyond belief. Actor/Writer/Director/Producer Harold Ramis passed away this morning at his home in Chicago. He is most known for playing Dr. Egon Spangler in the ‘Ghostbusters‘, meaning he was an actual Ghostbuster. He was 69. He started off at Second City and got his big break as a co-writer of the famous 1978 film ‘National Lampoon’s Animal House‘. He also wrote ‘Meatballs‘, which starred his friend Bill Murray.

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice….Beetlejuice?

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 14th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

Beetlejuice

 

Say the name 3 times and you’re in trouble! Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary….’Beetlejuice‘? Talking about none other than the original black and white stripe suit wearing master of disaster before Robin Thicke took a crack at the outfit, and the disaster that is Miley Cyrus. Before he came along, Michael Keaton did it better than anyone could imagine. Tim Burton knew he was making an excellent casting decision bringing ‘Mr. Mom’ into the mix.

Film Review: ‘Robocop’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 11th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Joel Kinnaman

Over the past year, I’ve been writing stories on the upcoming ‘Robocop‘ remake. As I found out more and more information about this reboot of the franchise, I was becoming less and less excited about it. It might of been the fact that it was getting a PG-13 rating, the change in the suit, or many of the other differences that were popping up from the original 1987 film that starred Peter Weller. Hell, even Weller himself said he was not looking forward to the remake and even compared his 1987 film to the likes of ‘Casablanca‘, which is hilarious.

Here’s The New Trailer for The ‘Robocop’ Remake!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2013

Jana B., Here…

 RoboCop+remake

I just checked out the new Robocop trailer. “Why is America so Robo-phobic?” is the phrase I plan on working into every conversation I have for the foreseeable future. This phrase is uttered by the badly rugged Samuel L. Jackson. So far in the 2:26 minute long trailer we see some awesome CG effects which stands to reason if you’re watching a movie about a cyborg policeman, or any movie made in 2013. Long gone are the days of non-computerized special effects.
