The ‘Twilight’ Saga Continues on Facebook?!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Oct 1st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

Facebook is reviving characters that have been dead a long time. Prepare yourselves for the global sound of Twihards the world over to squeal with delight. Facebook is getting into the film game with ‘Twilight‘ short films. You read that right. Stephenie Meyer wrote what has become the ‘Twilight Saga‘. Beginning in 2005, Meyer released the first novel in a series that would grip fans of all ages and create characters that would be immortalized in film. While some of us were letting our broomsticks cool down from a wild ride with a boy wizard, cold vampires and hot werewolves were heating up readers pages again. The saga ran the length of four novels and one short story as a spinoff.

OSCARS: Who Got Snubbed?!?!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

The 85th Academy Awards® will air live on Oscar® Sunday, February 24, 2013.

Well the Oscar nominations are in, which you can see by CLICKING HERE. There were some great nominees this year, but tons of stuff got snubbed. I can’t believe some of the misfires this year. There are tons of films and people that should have received a nomination. Here are some that got snubbed in my opinion.

Kim L. Here….

 FRUITVALE

The first word that comes to my mind about this movie is… Heart.  Based on a true story of Oscar Grant, the 22 year old that was murdered by a police officer in the early hours of New Year’s Day in 2009 at the Fruitvale BART Station in the Bay Area of California, the story follows Oscar, played by Michael B. Jordan (Friday Night Lights) on the last day of his life and shows the ups and downs he faced as a young man and father trying to do the right thing.

Film Review: ‘Fruitvale Station’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 19th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

What a rough movie to get through. After the credits rolled and the lights came up in the theater, there was not a dry eye in the house. Instead of a documentary, we have a narrative account on the real life murder of Oscar Grant, an incident that occurred on New Years Night in 2009 that sparked large protests and riots in Oakland and around the country. In his first feature film effort, director Ryan Coogler takes us through the life of Grant in the hours leading up to his untimely murder. Major Hollywood figures have been involved in this case with Forest Whitaker serving as producer on the film and Octavia Spencer playing the role of Grant’s mother. This film needs to be seen by everyone and I wish I could buy everyone a ticket to see ‘Fruitvale Station’.

Hi Bryan Here….

Below are the winners of the SAG awards from last night.  This might be an early indication for who has a good chance of winning at the Oscars this year.  Looks like  ‘The Help’ cleaned up here.  Will they at the Oscars? ‘HBO’s ‘Boardwalk Empire’ cleaned up too.  Much kudos to all the winners and noms.

Hi Bryan Here…..

The 84th annual Academy Award nominations are in.  There are a couple of surprises that I was very happy to see on here and tons of disappointment.  It looks like the Academy went with 9 Best Picture noms this year rather than 10.  They also only went with 3 noms for make up which I can think of others, and only two for original song.  Was this a time issue, so that the event would be over on time for once rather than have all 5 songs being sung?  I don’t like it, but that’s how it is this year.  Below you will see each category with my thoughts.  Enjoy.

Hey everyone, Jana here,

It seems that everything can be made into a movie, anymore. Where Hollywood seems to hit the re-make option a bit too much, they also surprise us with something very original. Case in point – ‘Tupperware Unsealed‘. Sony recently picked up rights to author Bob Kealing’s non-fiction book that will be the basis for the film which will star Sandra Bullock.
