Insurgent, the sequel to the popular young adult trilogy-turned-film-series, takes place immediately following the events of Divergent. Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James), are on the run from Jeanine (Kate Winslet), who is hunting the Divergents. This action/adventure/science fiction-thriller failed to perform, but was at least pretty to watch. Insurgent would be far more enjoyable if viewed on “mute”.

Film Review: ‘The Hundred Foot Journey’!

THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY

Other than love what is the universal language…food.  Everyone needs to eat, but there are those that celebrate food.  With so many different kinds of food, tastes, ways to prepare food around the world, it still astounds me that the world is not more united.  The Hundred-Foot Journey is a step in that wonderful direction.

 Sequels, while common among movies, are rather unique to documentaries. Korengal picks up right where Restrepo left off, with an unabashed, honest look into the lives of American soldiers in Afghanistan. This sometimes crude documentary follows a handful of soldiers from Battle Company.

Film Review: ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2’!!

A few years ago I went to watch ‘How to train your Dragon‘ in the theaters and was pleasantly surprised by what a great film it was. It was different than most of the stories being told on the big screen at the time. This story revolved more around not fitting in and finding your voice against popular opinion. Even now I put it on every once in a while, and it always puts a smile on my face. When I heard that there was a sequel, I had mixed emotions about it. Sequels tend to be just a bigger, blown out version of the original film. When I got the chance to check it out I was curious how it would hold up to the original. However, ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2‘ did not disappoint!

Film Review: ‘Lone Survivor’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 24th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here…

lone-survivor-movie-poster-8

Rounding out the end of the year is yet another survival story with Peter Berg’sLone Survivor‘. This intense and gritty true account of the failed mission of a Navy SEALs raid in Afghanistan packs a strong punch, even though you know only one person makes it out alive like the title suggests. The real life Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell is are lone survivor here, and we can compare this film to plenty other movies that take place in the Middle East where a mission has gone wrong, but Berg pulls out all of the stops with this story, and not only gives us an hour and a half of sheer brutality, but also gives us some great character camaraderie and tender moments to connect with these honorable soldiers. With the amount of movies out this holiday weekend, I don’t see this one trumping the box office, but might make a medium-sized dent.

Film Review: ‘Hansel and Gretel’

by Woozie on Jan 25th, 2013

Hi, Suzanne here,

Screen shot 2013-01-25 at 7.20.46 AM

Most people hold special nostalgia for the fairytales they grew up with, making new spins on these classic stories difficult to handle. Many fail by adding too much to the original story, and while Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters doesn’t really succeed, it actually does well to not take itself too seriously and pay homage to the tale, using it as a launchpad for a continuation of the gruesome Grimm Brothers tale. Though not a movie that will become anyone’s favorite or have much of a shelf life past 2013, it’s a good time for those who like to enjoy rolling their eyes at camp movies.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘My Way’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Je-kyu Kang’s ’My Way’ is not just a film you watch, it’s a full emotional experience.  ’My Way’ will take you on a moving journey through several countries and languages as you grown a bond with the two main characters.  This is Korea’s most expensive film to date and you will immediately see that.  ’My Way’ is epic on all levels.  This is one of the better films I have seen in recent memory and most definitely the best film dealing with war-time since Spielberg’s ‘Saving Private Ryan’.

Hi, Bryan Here….

If you think you know the story, think again. Experience the film that critics and audiences are raving about when The Cabin In The Woods arrives on Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy), DVD (plus Digital Copy) and On Demand and Pay-Per-View September 18 from Lionsgate. The Cabin In The Woodswill also be available on EST September 4, two weeks prior to the Blu-ray, DVD and On Demand release.  Co-written by fan favorites, Joss Whedon (The Avengers, TV’s “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield) and directed by Goddard, The Cabin In The Woods is a film that “horror fans will be gushing about for years” (FearNet).

Hi, Bryan Here….

The Toronto Film Festival is coming up quickly and it looks like it is going to be one for the books.  ‘Looper’ is going to open up the festival with several other centerpiece films that strike my fancy.  Two of them include Joss Whedon’s Shakespeare film ‘Much Ado About Nothing’, and Terrence Malick’s new film, ‘To The Wonder’.  Can’t wait.  Below is the official press release.  Who’s going? Piers Handling, CEO and Director of TIFF, and Cameron Bailey, Artistic Director of the Toronto International Film Festival, made the first announcement of films to premiere at the 37th Toronto International Film Festival.

Hi Bryan Here….

Disney has been doing such a great job recently releasing quite a bit of their back catalogue on 3D Blu-ray, and not to mention their Pixar films in 3D blu-ray.  But every once in a while they release one of their films that is a classic 2D animated film from my childhood.  In this case it is Winnie The Pooh in an all new 64 minute film.  This Winnie the Pooh film proves that even the simpler of films can still be some of the best out there.  I highly recommend this movie.

Rubicon to Launch in Three Medias!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2011

The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….

Christopher McQuarrie, writer of such great scripts as Valkyrie and The Usual Suspects, is launching his latest project: Rubicon, an action franchise which will span film, graphic novels, and video games. Ambitious indeed, and he can probably pull it off. Rubicon has been described co-producers Mark Long and Dan Capel as “Seven Samurai (Akira Kurosawa, 1954), set in Afghanistan with Navy SEALS as the heroes and the Taliban the villains.”

Hi Bryan Here….

I am just loving these musician documentaries.  The first half of the George Harrison doc has been amazing.  Looking forward to the second part tonight.  And now  Harry Belafonte is getting a documentary on his life and career.  Most of you might know Belafonte as the guy who sang ‘The Banana Boat Song’ which features the lyric “DAY-O”.  It was featured in the film ‘Beetle juice’.  I’m very excited for this doc as I am a huge fan of Belafonte.  I remember watching the making of Michael Jackson’s ‘We are the World’ music video and during the rehearsal, all of the singers and musicians just randomly started singing ‘The Banana Boat Song’ along with Harry Belafonte himself.  It was magical.
