Film Review: Tatara Samurai!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 7th, 2017

Audrey E., here….

Tatara_Samurai_860

The Martial Arts genre, or better known as “Black Belt Theater” has had a strong presence in the United States since the beginning of the 1970’s. The Asian film imports have gathered a legion of fans who appreciate the action dominance of some, or the more prowess components of others. In the new Japanese drama, ‘Tatara Samurai‘, Director Yoshinari Nishikôri respectably tries to incorporate both elements, but the outcome is an unfortunate sequence of sluggish storytelling, awful over-acting and combats so laughable, even Bruce Lee would shake his head in disdain.

Film Review: Wonder Woman!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 31st, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Screen Shot 2017-05-31 at 10.49.30 AM

The Warner Bros./DC Comics Cinematic Universe has been trying to get off its feet for a while now with no success, besides some decent box office money. However, most people would tell you that the new DC Comics‘ films are just not up to par with their rivals over at Marvel for many reasons. These people would be right. Perhaps one of the best moments of Batman v Superman was in fact Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It was just a shame she only had a few minutes of screen time in that film. The rest was mostly trash. Luckily, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to finally make a Wonder Woman movie, which is the first superhero film to feature a female superhero as its main protagonist, as well with a female director with Patty Jenkins. The result is satisfying, making Wonder Woman a damn good film with a few flaws.

Film Review #2: ‘Beauty and the Beast’ (2017)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 14th, 2017

Dan M., here….

Disney’s Beauty and the Beast (1991) is in the top 2 Disney animated movies of all-time. I’ll only allow The Lion King, which has a live action version due in 2019 or 2020, to be ranked ahead of it. This isn’t a debate. These are facts. Beauty and the Beast (animated) is a masterpiece from songs to characters, which is why I loved that this new live-action movie stayed so true to the animated version. It was an extremely enjoyable two hours with some really great moments and I look forward to seeing it again.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Gate’!

THE FILM

The 1980s were very good to us horror buffs in the form of films. We were introduced to Freddy Krueger, Pinhead, Re-Animator, John Carpenter’sThe Thing‘, ‘The Shining‘, ‘Child’s Play‘, ‘The Lost Boys‘ and the wonderful world of ‘Evil Dead‘ to name just a few. I guess you could say that the 80’s gave us some of the very BEST horror films ever made. One of the 80’s horror films that is just as good and as fun as the above mentioned movies, but rarely gets a mention is the 1986 film ‘The Gate‘, directed by Tibor Takacs.

Film Review: ‘The Great Wall’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 17th, 2017

Fernando M., here….

Screen Shot 2017-02-17 at 8.48.27 AM

This is a bad year for walls. ‘The Great Wall‘ easily wins the “biggest misnomer of the year” award. Should have gone with the title “This Wall, It’s OK I Guess.” What the hell went wrong with this picture?  The setup is great, which is “We use the Great Wall of China as a backdrop for a fantasy film about monsters.”  There’s a parable about monsters and greed and containment and human evil, but really, it’s all about monsters attacking the Great Wall of China.  On this premise alone, it sounds like a lot of fun, and it really could have been.

Hey guys, Jana here,

A U.S. Customs official uncovers a money laundering scheme involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar. It’s an incredibly short description of ‘The Infiltrator‘, but the trailer shows just how much is packed into that little sentence. You want guns? Got it. Drugs? Check. Bravery, guts and a truckload of cajones? Double check.

RIP David Bowie 1947-2016

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 11th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

bowie

The world lost a musical genius on Sunday when David Bowie succumbed after waging an 18-month, hard-fought war against cancer. He left behind a legacy of family that surrounded the 69-year old visionary as he passed on. Bowie also left a vibrant musical legacy that will survive the test of time and has left a palpable influence on music since he hit the scene decades ago.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix is, at this point, well established in the original series game so it comes as no surprise that their further efforts are drawing some serious star power. Case in point – ‘Frontier‘ from director Brad Peyton, you might recognize that name on the director’s title for ‘San Andreas‘ with co-starred one hell of a powerhouse in Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. So we know Peyton can work with the big names, but who is his star going to be for the streamers new series, ‘Frontier‘ but Khal Drogog himself, Jason Momoa.

Film Review: ‘Trumbo’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 13th, 2015

Rebecca S., Here…

trumbo

I went into ‘Trumbo’ expecting a slightly dull, somewhat stoic look at Hollywood’s past transgressions during the Communist scare at the height of the cold war. However, the movie ‘Trumbo‘ I watched, was interesting, heartwarming, infuriating, lovely and, surprisingly very funny.  I may have trouble writing this review because there are only so many ways to say “it’s so, SO good. Go see it!”… but I’ll give it a try.

Why I Love Movies!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 31st, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

PicMonkey Collage

When someone in the entertainment industry dies, especially suddenly, everyone reacts differently to the news. Some people just regard it as a bit of news for the day and go on entirely unphased. Then there’s another response some can have, it’s a personal, visceral one, at that. I fall into the latter category.
