Who Is Ready For The Country, Ya’ll?

by NapkinArt on Jun 12th, 2011

Believe it or not, Neil Young and the country go together like peanut butter and jelly, mashed potatoes and gravy and Woodward and Bernstein, so it’s no surprise when Young rocks and roars “Are You Ready For The Country” everyone listens.

Neil Young International Harvesters “A Treasure” is a 12 track collection of brilliant live material culled from Young’s 1984-85 tour, several tracks which have never been before released, which drops on the streets Tuesday, June 14th.

Buffalo Springfield to Tour in 2011?

by NapkinArt on Feb 17th, 2011

Back in October 2010, Buffalo Springfield bandmates Neil Young, Stephen Stills (The Talent) and Richie Furay got together onstage for the first time in over 40 years during Young’s annual Bridge School Benefit concert. As most folks probably figured this was a one trick pony, the rumor mills have been running overtime the last couple of months whether or not the influential 1960s rock band would reunite for future gigs.

In November, Furay’s manager, David Spero, confirmed with Rolling Stone that the remaining members have been talking about the possibility of doing some tour dates. Days after the Bridge School gig, Furay said “We just picked up where we left off many, many years ago. It almost felt like going back in time.” Read the rest of this entry »

Always Be My Maybe – Film Review

by Gumbercules9000 on May 29th, 2019

“Always Be My Maybe is simply enjoyable and engaging throughout.”

Next on the romantic-comedy chopping block comes Always Be My Maybe, which is exclusively on Netflix and has all of the desired genre tropes added in to give you laughs and heartwarming feelings. That being said, you’ve seen this story literally 500 billion times before. There is nothing new or original here in these characters or plot points. It’s romantic-comedy business as usual with Always Be My Maybe, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. While it doesn’t do anything to change the game or provoke thought, it’s simply enjoyable and engaging throughout, and that should be enough for a couple of hours.

Hellboy (2019) – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2019

 

“Hellboy (2019) is a waste of time, money, and talent on every level.”

Hellboy has long been a favorite of mine since I first read his comics many years ago. The whole fascination with his character, where he came from, and the mysterious organization that tracks and investigates paranormal activity called the B.P.R.D. was truly captivating. Several years ago, filmmaker Guillermo Del Toro (Blade II, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Shape of Water) got to make two Hellboy films, which he had stated was his favorite comic book. He brought Hellboy and the world he lived into to life that displayed all of the charm, magic, wonder, story, and development of each character perfectly. Literally none of those aspects are in this 2019 reboot of the iconic character. Hellboy (2019) is a waste of time, money, and talent on every level.

‘First Man’ Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2018

Director Damien Chazelle has boldly departed from his usual song and dance (‘Whiplash’, ‘La La Land’) for a character study about one of America’s most famous, but equally mysterious heroes: Neil Armstrong (Ryan Gosling). It’s rare to find an individual that hasn’t heard of the moon landing, but ask them about Neil himself? That’s a different story. ‘First Man’ tries to peek behind the helmet into the private life of Apollo 11’s commanding astronaut, but what we ultimately discover about this rocket man is far less interesting than the mission itself. Despite Chazelle’s dedication to his goal, the outcome is a confusingly toned, disconnected and unrevealing biopic that never quite makes a solid landing.

Jana’s Best of 2017!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 1st, 2018

Hey guys, Jana here,

I know these “Best of 2017” lists should technically be published in 2017, but why would I start 2018 any differently than I lived the majority of my adult life: Procrastinating and underachieving. What can I say? That’s my wheelhouse.

For a year that put a spotlight on some of the shittiest behavior by some of the Hollywood elite, it was actually a good year for TV and movies. I didn’t limit myself in number because as I moved on with the brackets, I felt like I was making ‘Sophie’s Choice‘ on some of these, so they’re all getting in! I’m feeling my inner-Oprah here, You’ve made the list! You made the list! EVERYBODY made the list!! In order to spare myself any arguments, I’m stating up front that my picks for the “Best of 2017” are not edited in regards to scandal or hideous human behavior.

Favorite Films of 2016!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

blake-lively-and-the-shark-the-shallows-39717776-1000-544

The end of 2016 is here, which means everyone’s Top 10 list is out already or getting ready to be released. I’m not going to do a Top 10 in order again this year, because there are just so many amazing films I feel so passionate about, that it is difficult to rank them. If you think this is a weak year of films, then you are surely mistaken. I will say that most of the big budget blockbusters this year were duds, but the indie films were nothing short of amazing. So below is the list of films that I truly loved this year. These films will be ones that I watch over and over again, and you should to. I watched 254 films that were released this year (Yes, I counted) and survived to tell the tale. As always, please let me know if any of your favorite films made my list. Enjoy!

You can CLICK the titles of each movie where you can purchase the Blu-rays too. Hooray!

The pair join Taylor Russell, who has been previously attached to the project as the oldest daughter, Judy for the 10-episode series to debut in 2018.

Film Review: ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

1200

Taika Waititi is one name you will soon remember for a very long time if you don’t already know it. Waititi is writer/director here for ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘, which is already in the top 5 BEST movies of the year, but Waititi is also an actor too. He starred in and directed the recent ‘What We Do In The Shadows‘, as well as directed ‘Eagle vs Shark‘ and even worked on ‘Flight of the Conchords‘ amongst other films. He is currently directing the upcoming ‘Thor: Ragnarok‘ film for Marvel, and it’s easy to see why Marvel hired this guy by watching ‘Hunt for the Wilderpeople‘. Even if the premise here is similar to other films, Waititi makes the story and characters entirely refreshing and original.

‘The Secret Garden’ is Getting the Remake Treatment!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

secretgarden1

Hollywood is now remaking ‘The Secret Garden‘ yet again. I’ll say that the last big film adaptation of the classic family book was back in 1993, so there has been a little bit of time between remakes. David Heyman and Studio Canal are set to produce the film, which Heyman is mostly known for producing all of the ‘Harry Potter‘ films. The studio has hired Jack Thorne to write the screenplay.
