Hi Bryan Here….

Ethan Coen and Joel Coen are set to executive produce an hourlong single-camera comedy for Fox, which the two co-created with another feature writer, Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids). The project, titled HarveKarbo, has received a script commitment with significant penalty from Fox.  How cool is this.  I wonder how hands on the Coens will be on this.

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.

Annabelle Comes Home – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 27th, 2019

Set in the horrifying Conjuring universe where paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren travel around the world and investigate strange phenomenons, perform exorcisms, and help families out with evil spirits, have both seen some truly terrifying things. The catch is that it’s all real or at least based on real-life events. With all of these horror movies that started with The Conjuring, there have been a few spinoff movies. The most popular of them is the frightening possessed doll named Annabelle, which is now on its third movie titled Annabelle Comes Home. Directed by Gary Dauberman, who has been the lead writer on the past Annabelle films, this sequel is his first foray into the director’s chair with original filmmaker James Wan producing. The result is too much of a slow pace for its own good, in addition to taking itself too seriously in an already flooded cheap scare and tiresome plot that we have seen two dozen times before.

‘Game of Thrones’ Is The Last TV Show of Its Kind!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 9th, 2019

Television has always been a cultural touchstone for me growing up. I remember the rush home to catch the season finales of Lost and 24 so I wouldn’t miss out on the conversation the next day. When my wife was in college I bought her a DVD recorder that we would set on a timer to record shows on to a blank DVD. When TIVO and recording came around it was a Godsend. This is how television has always been to me. The collective pop culture experience that would take the next day at work discussing everything we all watched together. I understand this way of consuming media has been dying for years but it struck me a few days ago that April and May are the true end of an era, specifically with Game of Thrones.

‘Relaxer’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 22nd, 2019

“It’s a film that crawls under your skin, but in a great way.”

At some point in all our lives, we’ve all daydreamed of sitting on the couch for days on end without a care in the world, a bill to pay, and appointment to make, or someone to answer to. All we want to do is watch television or in the case of Joel Potrykus‘ new film ‘Relaxer‘ – play video games all day. Set in 1999 and all on a unkempt couch, we meet Abbie (Joshua Burge) who acts much younger than he is and would rather play video games rather than clean himself or meet people outside of his house.

Climax – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2019

There are no other motion pictures out there quite like a Gaspar Noé film. The French filmmaker only has a few movies under his belt, but they have all made a significant impact on cinema in general, including the controversial films ‘Irreversible‘, ‘I Stand Alone‘, and ‘Enter The Void‘. Noé’s latest film, which I’m going to call his latest masterpiece, is called ‘Climax‘, and is a thrilling musical journey straight into hell.

‘Someone’s Watching Me!’ Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 8th, 2018

Not to be confused with Michael Jackson’s song (Rockwell) ‘Somebody’s Watching Me‘, this 1978 made-for-television film called ‘Someone’s Watching Me!‘ was directed by the iconic John Carpenter (Halloween), which interestingly enough, came out a couple of weeks after ‘Halloween‘ was released in theaters. The film stars Lauren Hutton as a young woman who moves from NYC to LA in order to become a TV producer/director. She seems to be enjoying life out there, however, she has a stalker who spies on her from the building across from her with a telescope. This stalker sends her awful messages, harasses her, and even sends her strange gifts in the mail.

TV Review: The New ‘JACK RYAN’ Series!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 4th, 2018

This weekend I had the time to watch the entire first season of Amazon’s new series Jack Ryan. Growing up I enjoyed all of the Harrison Ford versions of Jack Ryan and even liked the Ben Affleck iteration. The reboot attempt with Chris Pine fell pretty flat for me a few years back but I’ve always enjoyed the character. John Krasinski’s Jack Ryan is a perfectly serviceable TV hero but is really bogged down by the story around him. In an effort to be optimistic, I will say that I am hopeful for the second season.

Film Review: ‘Ahockalypse’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 14th, 2018

The past decade and a half, the undead have risen in all forms of entertainment. We’ve seen zombies on the big screen with big stars like Brad Pitt, we’ve seen the undead walk on prime time television and win awards, along with playing zombies in video games, and even in our kid-friendly cartoons. Zombies are the main-stay nowadays and like superhero movies, they’ve completely oversaturated the movie market, where it becomes tiresome to watch yet another zombie movie. We’ve seen Nazi zombies, Shakespeare zombies, marijuana zombies, romantic comedy zombies, and even zombie beavers. What’s next? I’ll tell you what’s next, it’s a movie called ‘AHOCKALYPSE‘ and is a hockey sports movie with zombies that was made in Minnesota.

LP Review: ‘Luke Cage Season 2’ Soundtrack!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 8th, 2018

 

Marvel is certainly on a roll with their content over this past decade with their billion dollar movies and their successful television shows across multiple platforms. One of these shows is called ‘Luke Cage‘, which just debuted its second season on Netflix. Luke Cage was the first black superhero in comic books to be featured as the main protagonist with his name as the title. Cage is an ex-convict who was imprisoned for a crime he did not commit who was experimented on, thus creating his superpowers of strength and unbreakable skin. Once he hones in on these powers, he basically becomes a hero for hire and is one of the coolest characters in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.
