Dan’s Ten Favorite Movies of the Decade!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 16th, 2019

Ten years! Ten whole stinkin’ years of wonderful movies to choose from and this list took me forever to settle on! It has been a great decade of movies across the board and narrowing this list to ten was painful. I have to be clear and say that these are MY 10 FAVORITES, not the best, not the most entertaining, not the most groundbreaking. These are Dan Moran’s 10 FAVORITES. Your list may differ and that is awesome because we all have different opinions! Enjoy my list.

ONCE – US Tour Stage Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 23rd, 2019

Two strangers in Dublin, Ireland meet by chance on the street, where they realize they are both talented musicians and end up falling in love with each other. Based on the hit 2007 film of the same name, ‘Once‘ is a raw and emotional tale of music, love, and heartbreak that won many awards more than a decade ago. After the film’s success, a stage version was made and hit Broadway by storm, also earning numerous achievements. Now, the play is touring North America and has stopped in Dallas, TX at the gorgeous Winspear Opera House for the Thanksgiving holiday, and what better way to celebrate than to visit the pub and listen to some fantastic Irish folk music with ‘Once‘ live on stage.

SHAFT (2019) – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 21st, 2019

THE FILM


We need more heroes like Shaft. Even if he breaks a few of the rules in order to take out the bad guys, he gets the job done and makes the world a better place, all while having a smile on his face and consistently makes us laugh. Thank you Shaft or shall I thank Samuel L. Jackson who looks like he’s having the time of his life in this film. Either way, this sequel to the 2000 film along with the original Shaft movies from the 1970s is Pitch Perfect Shaft, and I couldn’t be happier about it.

GEMINI MAN – Film Review!

by Janet White on Oct 10th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

A solid yet original action film is hard to find. Leave it to master cinematographer, Ang Lee, to fill the void. With Gemini Man, the virtual pot o’ gold at the end of the rainbow, viewers will be wowed by the uniquely choreographed and shot action sequences. When Henry Brogan (Will Smith) can no longer view his visage in the mirror, it is definitely time to hang up the sniper rifle. However, when you are the best assassin in the world, can you just stop? Henry thought so. His employer, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and someone he doesn’t suspect beg to differ. Read the rest of this entry »

The Saddest Moments in TV History!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 17th, 2019

Days are getting shorter and it’s starting to feel slightly cooler outside. It’s the end of summer and the beginning of autumn where leaves start to fall and orange spiced everything is available for mass consumption. This new season also signifies going back to school, starting something new whether it be a different job or living in another city. Whatever the case may be, it’s for sure an emotional ride.

Thank goodness for entertaining television though, right?

I wonder how many streaming services we can get before 2020 is here. It seems like every production company and movie studio – no matter how big or small is releasing its own streaming app. Remember the days when it was just Netflix and Hulu? Seems like ages ago. For the hardcore horror movie fans of grindhouse, gore, and cult films – comes Midnight Movie Society.

‘Good Boys’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 14th, 2019

“‘Good Boys’ is so f#*kin’ funny!”

Three young friends find themselves banning together in the R-rated misadventure of a lifetime in ‘Good Boys‘. When you have Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jonah Hill, and the producers/writers of ‘The Office‘ work on a movie together, you know you’re bound for big laughs, and that’s exactly the case with this movie. ‘Superbad‘ could be a close relative to ‘Good Boys‘, but replace the three high school friends trying to get laid with three elementary school kids who want to hit up a make-out party and finally kiss a girl. The underlying themes of friendship, growing up and moving on are all on display here, where the charm and innocent vulgarity mix perfectly with each other. ‘Good Boys‘ is so fuckin’ funny!

Halloween is just several weeks away and that means ‘The Simpsons‘ will be debuting a new Treehouse of Horror episode. This will be the big-ass 30th Treehouse of Horror episode, making it XXX. I only hope the writers play into that in some fun ways. Not only that, this will be the show’s 666th episode, which I have to believe they’ve been planning this since episode 1.

Vice Squad – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2019

So a pimp, a prostitute, and a police detective walk into a bar. It sounds like the start of a bad joke or what could be a really good time with names like Princess and Ramrod, but in the case of 1982’s action film Vice Squad, that’s not always the case. In fact, this is a super sexualized crime thriller with some hardcore violence and one rough bad guy. This movie is the culmination of the late 70s and early 80s that brought together a ton of top-tier talent, which is funny because this movie is so over-the-top violent, that you can’t believe it was ever made and released. Gary Sherman directed this pic, who previously just came off Dead and Buried and went onto make Poltergeist III. He was joined by producing partner Robert Rehme (former president of Avco Pictures who helped make a ton of John Carpenter movies, including The Fog and Escape From New York). Also collaborating with this duo was cinematographer John Alcott, who had previously worked on four of Stanley Kubrick’s best films, including 2001: A Spacy Oddessy, Barry Lyndon, The Shining, and A Clockwork Orange. Rounding out this stellar crew of talent is composer Joe Renzetti (Child’s Play). While the story may be your standard grindhouse B-movie affair, the visual style, camera angles, and score are out of this world.

The Last Black Man in San Francisco – Film Review!

by Janet White on Jun 13th, 2019

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

 

“The Last Black Man in San Francisco is not perfect in its execution, but the story is moving despite its disjointed structure and flow.”

An interesting story comes out the U.S. capitol of “in your face.” In The Last Black Man in San Francisco, Joe Talbot, the director, teams up with Jimmie Fails (Jimmie Fails) for a second time to bring you seemingly Fails’s own story of the journey of living with loss. Orphaned from a drug addict mother and deceased father, Jimmie has lived with a friend, Montgomery Allen (Jonathan Majors) for some unrevealed amount of time. Each day, Jimmie and Mont take the bus to his childhood home. Much to the chagrin of the current owners, Jimmie touches up his ancestral homestead. When ownership of the property suddenly is in flux, Jimmie seizes the moment. What followed enlightened Jimmie’s world and hopefully the viewers in the audience. Read the rest of this entry »

Dragged Across Concrete – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2019

Dragged Across Concrete is the third film from S. Craig Zahler that focuses on two police detectives (Mel Gibson and Vince Vaughn) who are put on suspension and are looking to make some extra money to support their families, even if it means doing something dangerous off the grid. It’s a fantastic film for sure. The 1080p HD transfer, DTS-HD MA 5.1 audio mix, and two excellent bonus features are all worth your time. Highly Recommended!

Dan Moran’s Top Films of 2018 and his Award Nominations!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 30th, 2018

This year I saw 102 new movies in 2018. That number is actual movies released in 2018. I count Netflix and streaming movies released this year because that is where we are heading but the majority of the 102 was in movie theaters. I decided not to rank my top movies this year because at the end of the day the difference between #10 thru #3 is usually based on my mood when I write the list. So I just put my top movies in ABC order.

4K UHD Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2018

Disney is on a roll these days with their recent ‘Star Wars‘ franchise. Not only do we have the new Episodes, but we are getting spin-off movies that focus on a singular story from the past or a certain character. One character that we all have loved from the original trilogy, but don’t know a great deal about is Han Solo. Sure, we know he was a smuggler, is an anti-hero, loved the princess, and helped save the Galaxy with his wookie partner Chewbacca, as they flew from planet to planet on the iconic Millennium Falcon. Through the original trilogy, we heard small lines of dialogue that gave us the tiniest glimpse at his background and life before he met Obi-Wan and Luke. Fortunately, we now have ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story‘ to answer all of those questions for us.
