by Red Zeppelbon on Jan 26th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

Woody Allen is an artist that garners reactions on both ends of the spectrum when it comes to enjoyment of his projects, you either love him or hate him. It seems, he’s not always happy with his decisions, either, at the last Cannes, he said the deal he made to create a TV series for Amazon was a catastrophic mistake and he regretted signing on to make an original series. His plan was to create a movie, but in six parts, that didn’t quite work out as planned. He struggled through the process and will write, direct and star in the finished product along with two unlikely co-stars.

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 9th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Woody Allen is one of the most prolific filmmakers in the world. Even at the age of 79, the direct still seems to get out one or two films a year for the past several decades. Each of these films are written and directed by him. He even finds time to star in his film and other friend’s movies, such as last year’s ‘Fading Gigolo‘ with John Turturro.

HI everyone, Bryan Here…

Roots pic

We knew there was going to be a remake of ‘Roots‘ already, and that the History Channel was going to air it. If you’re unfamiliar, ‘Roots‘ was a 1977 miniseries that broke all kinds of records. It’s one of the better miniseries to ever be aired on television. Now since the History Channel has had some big success with ‘Hatfields & McCoys‘ and ‘Texas Rising‘, it seems like the ‘Roots‘ remake is on the fast track to start filming.

Mary-Louise Parker Returning to Primetime!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Mar 6th, 2014

Hello, Jana here,

mary-louise-parker

I was worried after the final season of ‘Weeds‘ aired that I would not get my weekly dose of Mary-Louise Parker ala Nancy Botwin any longer. Looks like I have been worried for nothing. NBC has successfully courted Parker’s involvement in a comedy that will pilot this fall, ‘Feed Me‘. The project is described as a comedic exploration of adult intimacy and desire that centers on a dysfunctional family bound by love and the restaurant they run together. Parker will play the lead, Ellen, a slightly OCD wife, mother of two and accountant who is stuck in her ways and whose approach to life is a challenge for those around her, including her husband, parents and brothers, most of whom are in the restaurant business. I think TV has shown us that they will never make a movie on a ‘normal’ family, mainly because ‘normal’ is subjective and if you look closely, every family is dysfunctional. So they could probably just start stating that it’s a show about a family in the restaurant biz.

The Brink

HBO, in a quick move, has given a series order to ‘The Brink‘. The comedy stars Jack Black (‘Tropic Thunder‘, ‘School of Rock‘) and Tim Robbins (‘The Shawshank Redemption‘ and ‘Mystic River‘), directed by Jay Roach (‘Meet The Parents‘, ‘Austin Powers‘) and executive produced by Jerry Weintraub (‘The Karate Kid’ franchise, ‘Oceans Eleven’ and the newly announced ‘Tarzan’). Now that we have the proven star power behind this project, we need talented writers to bring it to fruition. Roberto Benabib and his brother Kim Benabib are penning the script. Roberto Benabib has shown a master handle on writing a dark comedy with his successful stint at writing for the show ‘Weeds‘ and ‘Ally McBeal‘.

Hi, Bryan Here….

olympus_has_fallen

Here is the new 1st trailer for ‘Olympus Has Fallen‘, which looks pretty intense. We have talked about this movie before and marks one of several films dealing with an elite team taking down terrorists at the White House.  Antoine Fuqua will  be directing the film, which he is known for making ‘Training Day‘. The trailer itself looks good and stars Gerard Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Morgan Freeman, Angela Bassett, Dylan McDermott, Ashley Judd, Melissa Leo,  and Rick Yune.  Hell of a cast if you ask me.

Hi, Bryan Here….

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Bryan Reviews Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ Bluray!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 28th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

Woody Allen’s ‘Manhattan’ is one hell of a fine movie, no matter what Woody Allen says.  The video and audio make this the best the film has ever looked since the theatres. This film has some of the most iconic shots in any Woody Allen film and for that fact , any film made.  The whole film is just one beautiful shot after another.  Frame worthy.  While there are no extras besides a theatrical trailer, this is still one bluray worthy of owning.

Hi Bryan Here….

In more Disney and Pixar 3D news, all three ‘Toy Story’ films will be re-released in 3D Bluray.  I won’t be surprised to see in the coming weeks Disney and other film companies releasing their titles again in the 3D format.  As far as I can see now, the only difference between these 3D releases and the previous bluray versions is the actual 3D portion itself.  Read below all the specs and info.

Hi Bryan Here…..

Criterion rolls out the red carpet yet again with Todd Solondz’s film, ‘Life During Wartime’.  This is a loosely based sequel to his hit 1998 film ‘Happiness’ where new actors play the same characters.  ‘Life During Wartime’ is a disturbed yet darkly funny film with an all-star cast that weaves a family’s trials and tribulations during a momentary time shortly after 9/11.  You will dislike and feel bad for most of the characters in this film, yet you will laugh throughout the film from their insane thoughts and lives.  I love watching ‘Life During Wartime’.  So many interesting characters to try and wrap your mind around and a gorgeous backdrop of sunny Florida make this Criterion release a must see and purchase.
