Hello, Jana here,

 

Terminator-Salvation

Dayo Okeniyi may not have a name you recognize right away, but you’ve surely noticed his work in a few films. He was one of the lucky few to feature in the big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins‘ coup de maître ‘The Hunger Games‘. He also has ‘Runner Runner‘, ‘The Endless Now‘ and ‘Endless Love‘ to his credit. His star is definitely on the rise in Hollywood.

The Top 10 Gangster Movie List!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 19th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

GangsterListBANNER

Some girls are all into sappy romances or heart touchingly saccharine-sweet movies. Movies that sometime contain a troubled family learning to love a curmudgeonly, absent  grandparent, or a shattered family recovering from the death of one of its immediate member. Sometimes it’s a pet that waltzes, unexpectedly, into a tumultuous atmosphere that teaches everyone to love more before it’s killed in some unimaginative way.

I hate movies like that. I hate books like that and I hate songs like that. If a member of a family is killed, it better be a mafia family, and I get to look forward to their violent, bloody and evil retribution.  I am so fascinated by the inner workings of these ‘families’. I love to see the fronts they use to launder their income and imagine ways I would do it if I was involved.

Showtime Announces Two New Series!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 16th, 2014
Jana B., Here,

Joshua Jackson

I love watching premium network series. It started with ‘The Sopranos‘. I was absolutely fascinated by how many times they cursed, how much violence it showed, and don’t forget all the T&A in the sex scenes! I should also include the story line arcs that I never wanted to end, as well. I just couldn’t believe this wasn’t a stand alone movie, but a series I got to watch every week! As time went by I had my attention divided to include ‘Big Love‘, ‘Weeds‘, ‘Nurse Jackie‘, ‘Dexter‘….and on and on and on. So I’m excited about Showtime’s announcement of two new series that have been picked up.

Film Review: ‘Thor: The Dark World’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 7th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Thor-2_2709663b

And we’re back with the first non-Iron-Man sequel in the Marvel universe with ‘Thor: The Dark World‘, with the entire cast back ready for more saving the universe and defeating evil. However, this time around, the sequel felt uneasy and a little bit off, as it dragged in the mid-section quite a bit, or when Tom Hiddleston’s Loki (Thor’s adopted brother) is not on screen. Sure, the main event is Thor himself (Chris Hemsworth), but he seems to take a back seat for most of the film, as the co-stars really drive this movie as Thor smashes his hammer from foe to foe.

James Gandolfini left an emptiness in his wake, especially for those of us that loved him on HBO. His legacy lives on with HBO, as befits Gandolfini’s biggest and arguably best starring role in, the numerous award winning, ‘The Sopranos‘.  Gandolfini played a role in the ‘Criminal Justice‘ pilot, that will be filled by none other than, Oscar winner, Robert De Niro. The actor who is no stranger to playing mafia characters has stepped into the vacated too soon size 12’s James Gandolfini left behind after his untimely death in June of this year. Robert DeNiro is a legend in his own right playing such famous parts in ‘Taxi Driver‘, ‘Godfather II‘, ‘Raging Bull‘, and ‘The Untouchables‘ to just name a few.

Hi, Bryan Here….

This news just sucks and I hate writing about these things. James Gandolfini passed away today in Italy due to a heart attack. He was in Italy for the 59th Taormina Film Festival in Sicily where he was scheduled to participate in a festival event this weekend with Italian director Gabriele Muccino. He is survived by his wife Deborah Lin and his two kids.

Hi, Bryan Here….

Sandlot1

Thinking about 20 years ago to when I was thirteen years old and going with my friends, who we all played little league together, to see ‘The Sandlot‘ on the big screen. A film that would inspire us, makes us laugh, cherish our friendship, and love the game. I remember seeing it a total of five times in the theater, with each time getting better and better. And twenty years later, ‘The Sandlot‘ still holds up as seeing it for the first time all over again. And I had the honor and privelige to discuss ‘The Sandlot‘ and other things with the director of the film David M. Evans and actor Patrick Renna, who played Hamilton ‘Ham’ Porter a.k.a The Great Hambino.

Feast Your Eyes on the New ‘Thor 2’ Trailer!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 23rd, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

thor-the-dark-world-first-official-poster-strikes

Here is the first trailer for the sequel to Marvel’sThor‘ titled ‘Thor: The Dark World‘. It seems like Marvel is going for an edgier and darker tone with this one. We’ve heard rumors this was the direction it was going, and after viewing the trailer, I can confirm that things get pretty gritty.  Alan Taylor is directing this 2nd installment and I have complete trust that he will do a fine job judging by his credits.

Film Review: ‘Not Fade Away’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 8th, 2013

David Chase, mostly known for being the creator and show-runner on HBO‘s ‘The Sopranos‘, marks his first feature film directorial debut with ‘Not Fade Away‘.  I didn’t know what quite to expect from this coming of age film that relies heavy on music of the 50s and 60s as well as political and social issues to further the story, but from  what the trailer showcased, I expected more of a ‘That Thing You Do!‘ type of film, which chronicled the rise and fall of a local band to fame and fortune.  That is not the case with ‘Not Fade Away‘.  Instead we get something a little more in the way of growing up in turbulent times and dealing with change. By all means, Chase made a solid film, but it is not without its flaws.

Film Review: ‘Killing Them Softly’

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 30th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

‘Killing Them Softly’ not only is a brilliant and intelligent crime yarn, which will fulfill your violence, gore, and character levels, but also from beginning to end has a political and social undertone that makes this modern crime noir film much more than it looks to be. It’s been several years since Andrew Dominik made a film.  His last film was the impressive ‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’ in which Brad Pitt starred in.  Well Pitt is back and even better than ever in ‘Killing Them Softly’.
