Hey guys, Jana here,

FF_2015_POSTER

 

Fantastic Fest‘ has released their 2nd wave of programming with a huge roster that would work as an entire film fest on its own! Add it to the first wave programming seen here, and by Jupiter’s Cock, it’s going to be exciting!!! There will be advance screenings of ‘The Martian‘, ‘High-Rise‘, ‘Green Room‘, and ‘The Keeping Room‘.

“This is a big year for genre cinema. We’re exceptionally proud to honor incredible filmmakers and welcome back some of Fantastic Fest’s favorites,” said Tim League, Fantastic Fest and Alamo Drafthouse CEO/Founder.

Sticking true to Fantastic Fest’s penchant for chaos and explosive events, they welcome Itchy-O to Austin for the first time. A blazing, 32-member aural assault from the darkest depths of Colorado, Itchy-O is a wholly immersive, musical experience on a massive scale. Said festival director Kristen Bell, “We cannot wait for them to unleash their percussive mayhem on our audience as hysteria has a welcome home at Fantastic Fest.”

See below for the full lineup of newly announced film titles for Fantastic Fest 2015. Final wave of titles to be announced shortly.

‘The Doctor and the Devils’ Blu-Ray Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Nov 19th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

doctoranddevils

 

THE FILM

The Doctor and The Devils‘ is a gothic thriller from the same production company that issued ‘The Fly‘, ‘Spaceballs‘ and ‘Robin Hood: Men in Tights‘ – Brooksfilms. Until I researched a little for this review, I didn’t even realize Mel Brooks‘ company made anything other than the classic hilarity his name automatically recalls. Brooks picked up the script from legendary poet Dylan Thomas, wherein the story of true life grave robbers, Burke and Hare is told. Maybe it was Brooks’ success with ‘The Elephant Man‘ that led him back to the surgical-experimentation game, whatever the conditions were, ‘The Doctor and The Devils‘ did not receive the same praise.

Hillary T.’s ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ Review!!

I am a Marvel girl. I am. But after the last ensemble X-Men movie (Last Stand), I was devastated at what had become of my beloved mutant team. Then, First Class came out, which gave me a lot of hope. Then they announced Bryan Singer would return to direct the next installment. Dare I get my hopes up more? Then they shared the “Days of Future Past” storyline. I was instantly hooked. The cast started rolling in, and I got even more hopeful and well, I was really happy after the first preview. It looked good, even great.

Film Review: ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 20th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

Jodorowskys-Dune-poster

I’m sure you have either seen, read, or heard of the sci-fi epic tale of ‘Dune‘ by now. You know the film by David Lynch that starred Kyle MacLachlan, Sting, Max Von Sydow, Virginia Madsen, Patrick Stewart, and Sean Young? Well, if you saw the film, you would know that it is very similar to a lot of science-fiction movies that we have seen over the past thirty years, but it never was a box office smash or held up in later years. Sure, there is a small cult following for it now, but it has nowhere near the amount of fans that ‘Star Wars‘ or ‘Star Trek‘ fans have now.

The Weinstein Company has purchased the big screen adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth from Studiocanal. The heart-breakingly gorgeous Michael Fassbender, younger Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto from X-Men: First Class and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past is cast as the titular Macbeth. Marion Cotillard has signed on to play Lady Macbeth. Cotillard is fairly well known for playing Billie Frechette opposite Johnny Depp’s Dillinger in Public Enemies. She also recently, and most notably, played Talia al Ghul in The Dark Knight Rises. I first realized her star power when I saw her Ridley Scott’s A Good Year playing opposite Russell Crowe.

Bryan Review ‘Bambi II’!!! (A Blu-Ray Review)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 19th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

As of recently, Disney has been pumping out all their catalogue direct to home video releases on blu-ray.  This 2006 film really isn’t a sequel or prequel of sorts, but rather a story from the first film’s time frame.  I just say, since 1994 when Disney started all of these direct to home video releases, ‘Bambi II’ is one of the better ones.  Now that’s not saying much since most of their direct to video films are not that fun to watch with the exception of ‘Lion King 1 1/2’, it also isn’t the worst one.  There is enough fun and adventure in ‘Bambi II’ that it entertained me and I would consider watching again at some point in the far future.

Film Review: ‘The Collection’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 30th, 2012

Suzanne L. Here….

Looking for the perfect holiday movie to enjoy with the kids? Yeah, this is not it. The Collection is the story of a demented serial killer, The Collector, who truly enjoys killing and torturing in the most gruesome ways possible. If you are a fan of gore porns like the Saw series, you’ll want to check this out, but it’s not a truly scary movie.
