Well everone’s favorite social network Facebook is on top this week.


Aaron Sorkin’s “The Social Network” was #1 at the box office this weekend.  It brought in $23 million dollars.  It’s budget was double that.  So it has a ways to go.

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?

Ready or Not – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 21st, 2019

“‘Ready or Not’ is a bloody wonderful movie for all the right reasons.”

It’s a strange world we live in where Fox News and the horrible jackass in the White House conjure up bogus debates that ultimately led to the cancellation of a movie called ‘The Hunt‘, which followed a group of people who hunt and kill someone else with different political views. Now, its own movie studio (Fox Searchlight) has released ‘Ready or Not‘, which is practically the same story, but is more subtle in its satire of the political and class system in America. This incredible darkly comic film is part ‘The Purge‘ and part ‘Jumanji‘ in a twisted way where an uber-wealthy family looks to kill people who join their clan. It’s a hell of a fun ride that mixes great humor and bloody violence into a short run-time from the filmmaking club Radio Silence (Matt Bettinelli-Olphin and Tyler Gillett).

‘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!

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.

My Favorite Movies Released in 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 27th, 2018

The year of 2018 has come to a close and over the past 365 days, I’ve seen roughly 175 new films that were released.  I had a ton of fun watching each and every single one of them, even if I came out sour towards a film. There were a ton of great films this year that ranged from big action blockbusters, emotional indie dramas, scary-as-hell films that still haunt me, and some laugh out loud movies that always put me in the right mood. I’d chalk 2018 as a winner in the movie business, because there are some films that came out that I will truly cherish for a long time to come.

Blu-ray Review: ‘The Unborn’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 3rd, 2018

There is a fun horror sub-genre about pregnancy and demonic babies. In 1991, a film called ‘The Unborn‘ was added to that list and could be compared somewhat to ‘It’s Alive‘ and ‘Rosemary’s Baby‘. What’s crazy about this movie is the amount of talent involved before they were A-List. This is filmmaker Rodman Flender’s first film who went on to make a ton of horror movies and TV shows such as ‘The Office‘, ‘Arli$$‘, and ‘Leprechaun 2‘. It was produced by Roger Corman, starred a young Lisa Kudrow, with cinematographer Wally Pfister, who went on to lens all of Christopher Nolan’s movies, including the ‘Dark Knight‘ trilogy. It’s crazy, I know.

Dan’s Review of ‘A Quiet Place’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 8th, 2018

I am not a huge fan of scary movies. I’ll see them, but they are definitely very low on my overall ‘Genre I Enjoy’ list. That said, I always appreciate a really well done horror film and ‘A Quiet Place‘ is exactly that. It is one of the most suspenseful and intense movies I have seen in a few years. The awful situations this family finds themselves in naturally grow to such a climax that it is one of the few movies where I can say I was on the edge of my seat.  On the surface, it is just a terrifying creature feature where noise is the enemy, but if you look a little deeper, it is quite simply the most terrifying movie about being a parent ever made.
