After Life Season 2 – Netflix Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 24th, 2020

“This second season is the perfect continuation and end to Gervais’ story.”

Big laughs and many tears are in the cards with the second season of the impressive little Netflix series After Life that has Ricky Gervais directing, writing, and starring in each episode in what feels like a very personal story. It’s a brilliantly affecting series that has a perfect balance of hilarious comedy and emotional moments that are earned every step of the way and conjure up deep feelings to let close ones simply know how much they’re loved. This second season is the perfect continuation and end to Gervais’ story, although a third season would be much welcomed.

THE MAIN EVENT – Netflix Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 11th, 2020

“As The Miz would say, The Main Event is AWESOME!”

Making its way down to the squared circle comes the new family-friendly Netflix comedy, The Main Event, a funny film from the streaming giant that has a tag-team partner in the WWE. Following a kid who discovers a magical mask that makes him a superhero pro-wrestler, this fun movie mixes in some good laughs, wrestling superstar cameos, and a little heart and soul that has it earning its own championship belt.

COFFEE AND KAREEM – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 3rd, 2020

 

“Coffee and Kareem” fails to deliver on laughs and fun.”

Burt Reynolds in Cop and a Half must have made quite the impression on filmmaker Michael Dowse (Stuber, Goon) because he took that formula of a police officer who is paired up with a young kid to solve a crime he witnessed, and essentially remade that movie into a vulgar modern-day re-telling called Coffee and Kareem, starring Ed Helms and Taraji B. Henson. The result is a film that lacks any real likable or relatable character, an awful script full of unnecessary expletives that goes nowhere, and a lazy eye for action-packed sequences. Needless to say, Coffee and Kareem fail every cinematic or entertaining test miserably.

THE HUNT- Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2020

 

“The Hunt is a hell-0f-an entertaining film and loads of fun.”

Director Craig Zobel (Compliance), producer Jason Blum, and writers (Carlton Cuse, Damon Lindelof) of LOST fame could have never predicted the events that led up to their film The Hunt being canceled and moved back months after its original debut on the big screen. Not only were there a couple of mass shootings that occurred, but the current US President mentioned the film in a negative way without seeing it and thus had this funny-as-hell and bloody good time of a movie pushed later in the year. With that insane amount of free publicity, The Hunt became the most curious film to see, which was certain to raise major controversy with its subject matter – being a modern-day Battle Royale between the extreme political divide of this country. The result is a significantly funny film that mixes in some major slapstick violence that would make Quentin Tarantino excited along with some corny dialogue and a few subtle witty ideas. The Hunt is a ton of fun and gives a healthy poke to both sides of the spectrum.

ENTER THE FAT DRAGON – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 14th, 2020

“Enter the Fat Dragon is a jolly-good movie .”

The Ip Man himself (Donnie Yen) has retired from the serious business of the strong, silent type of honor and tradition and has fully embraced a fun vacation in his new film Enter the Fat Dragon, based off Sammo Hung Kam-bo’s unforgotten 1978 film about an obese Bruce Lee fan. Nothing is subtle here with its charm, comedy, and over-the-top violent action sequences that guarantees to hand-deliver a wonderful time in 30 minutes or less.

DAYBREAK – TV Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 24th, 2019

An unlikely blend of misfits dodging flesh-eating adults and ‘Mad-Max‘ style bullies in a modern-day wasteland that burns down the fourth wall in a creative style comes ‘Daybreak‘.  In a vast marsh-land of zombies and apocalyptic movies and tv shows, it’s somewhat difficult to find something fresh and fun in this sub-genre. With this fun-as-hell and witty new Netflix show, new life has been given to the apocalypse that never takes itself too seriously. Whenever the show seems to go one way, it does a 180 and goes down a different path. It forever keeps you on your toes and delivers laughs and some solid entertainment.

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.

ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2019

In the world of unnecessary sequels run amok, Zombieland: Double Tap proves that sometimes sequels are absolutely worth the wait. Set 10 years after the original movie, Zombieland: Double Tap quickly picks up where we left off with this makeshift family as they work together to survive a zombie apocalypse. Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) & Wichita (Emma Stone) all reprise their roles from the 2009 original with the same enthusiasm as they had the first time around. When the first movie came out most of the stars were not well known but after 10 years they’ve gone on to star in Oscar-nominated movies and even win Oscars themselves. Those 10 years in real life and in the Zombieland universe was the perfect amount of time for the writers and director to put together a sequel worthy of the original and maybe even superior to it in some way. This is easily one of the best comedies of 2019.

‘JoJo Rabbit’ – Film Review! (Fantastic Fest)

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 2nd, 2019

I expected this movie about a young boy named Jojo growing up during the fall of Nazi Germany to be Taika Waititi’s take on a classic Mel Brooks set up. It turns out Taika has not seen ‘The Producers‘ or any of the other Hilter satires that commonly spring to mind when you hear about the initial concept of this film. While often hilarious, ‘Jojo Rabbit‘ takes a different, more earnest direction.

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?

Fantastic Fest is one of the events that is pure bliss for any fan of genre cinema.

‘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!

Shazam! – 4K UHD/Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 29th, 2019

It’s easy to see that the executives at Warner Bros. and DC Comics have been listening to the fans in wanting funnier and more light-hearted superhero films after the super dark and very adult previous films. With ‘Aquaman‘, they literally threw in everything and the kitchen sink into that film to bring a wild, chaotic affair that was silly, yet fun in a “so bad it’s good” kind of way. There is much more of a balance with ‘Shazam!‘ and dare I say it in my most impressive imitation of WWE’s The Rock – “Finally! DC has made a fun movie!” I stand by that statement too as an odd choice in director David S. Sandberg (‘Lights Out‘ and ‘Annabelle: Creation‘) took his cues from Tom Hanks‘ 1980s film ‘Big‘ and made a large budget superhero movie out of it, set in the universe of The Justice League. Everyone in the film looks to be having a great time on screen with their respective characters and it transfers to smiles and laughs in its audience.

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.

Brightburn – Film Review

by Gumbercules9000 on May 24th, 2019

 

“Brightburn is a more serious version of one of the parody movies from the mid-2000s like the Scary Movie franchise.”

Brightburn is a new horror film that sets its sights on subverting the expectations of superhero movies by asking the question: What if one of these heroes wanted to be bad? Unfortunately, this clever idea for a movie sputters with its point on several occasions and leans more heavily on delivering gore via a 12 year old Superman.
