Hey guys, Jana here,

Batman-Ben-Affleck-970x545

Is Deathstroke coming to the film world of the DC Universe? Maybe so after Ben Affleck shared a solo video with no comment or explanation this morning on Twitter. We don’t know precisely what it means, but it looks to be a screen test as we can see the monitor Batfleck is recording it from.

Film Review: ‘Suicide Squad’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

picture-of-margot-robbie-suicide-squad-photo

There seems to be a good movie hidden somewhere in ‘Suicide Squad‘, but the film itself makes it nearly impossible for you to find where those good moments are. The film is its own worst enemy, because it promises something new and fresh in the first dozen or so minutes, but then nose dives into the mountain from there on out. This is certainly writer/director David Ayer’s most ambitious project and I can’t tell if it’s his mistake or the collection of DC/Warner Bros. executives who forced the notes on him to make this film not succeed, because again, the first part of the movie gathers your hopes up for something fun. Ayer wrote ‘Training Day‘ and ‘U-571‘, then transitioned into directing with ‘End of Watch‘ and ‘Fury‘, which were both new and fresh takes on tired genres. I was hoping that Ayer could breathe new life and put the DC Comic movie franchise on the right track, but alas, that is not the case.

THE FILM

For all the comic book fans around the globe, we live in a great time of moviemaking. Over the past decade, we’ve seen Hollywood take the superhero genre by storm, releasing comic book movie after comic book movie with A-list stars, talented directors, and epic budgets to bring our childhood heroes to life on the big screen. This successful genre has even garnered many awards, as well as numerous television shows on almost every network. It shows no signs of slowing up. Marvel has paved the way for superhero franchises, building on each superhero character that culminated into the ‘Avengers‘ movies, showcasing each superhero across the other superhero movies, providing a big bridge to gather all stories together. It’s been an  excellent financial and critical success.

Willem Dafoe joins the small group of actors to portray both Marvel and DC characters. Dafoe played the Green Goblin in Sam Raimi’sSpider-Man‘ films, and now the actor is joining the ‘Justice League‘ on the superhero side of things, rather than a villain.

Hey guys, Jana here,

batman-vs-superman-batfleck-pic

Looks like Batfleck was such a success in Warner Bros. eyes that a standalone project is officially in the works. Ben Affleck isn’t just reprising his role as the caped crusader, he’s a renaissance bat-man (See what I did there?). He will star, obvs, but he will also direct, write and produce.

Film Review: ‘Everybody Wants Some’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 6th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

everybody-wants-some-image1

In my mind, Richard Linklater can do no wrong. He is one of the best filmmakers working today and he continues do break ground with iconic films that will forever be seared into our memory. Recently, his film ‘Boyhood‘ garnered a ton of awards and was a milestone in filmmaking as he took twelve years to film the story of a boy growing up around his broken family. It was one of the best movies of that year. From ‘School of Rock‘ to ‘Bernie‘ to ‘Slacker‘ to the ‘Before‘ trilogy – we’ve seen Linklater grow as a filmmaker and deliver excellent characters and great soundtracks over the years. Perhaps his best known or cult favorite film was from 23 years ago, which of course was ‘Dazed and Confused‘.

Love them, hate them or tolerate them, superhero movies are a staple in the grand pantheon of entertainment. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of slow-down for the summer blockbuster favorites, if anything there are more and more in the woodwork just waiting for their moment in the sun. Marvel took a wide lead over their DC counterpart in both quality and quantity of films produced, but DC is looking to make a comeback and that’s starting with this summer’s ‘Superman V Batman: Dawn of Justice‘. From there, we have stand-alone movies that feature our favorite comic book supes and among those in the works is ‘Justice League: Part One‘ and ‘Aquaman‘.

Zack Snyder has placed J.K. Simmons in the middle of another superhero world, this time making him Gotham City police commissioner Gordon in his upcoming ‘The Justice League‘. This is the same man that anchored Sam Raimi’sSpider-Man‘ at the Daily Planet as J. Jonah Jameson beginning in 2002 and running through three films before the property was rebooted.

Ironically, just last week Simmons stated that he’s open to playing Jameson again in the latest MCU reboot of ‘Spider-Man‘ that is starring Tom Holland, Marisa Tomei and Zendaya.

We all know and love Aaron Sorkin by now, right? He was the amazing screenwriter of the ‘West Wing‘, ‘The Social Network‘, HBO’sThe Newsroom‘, ‘Moneyball‘, and the recent ‘Steve Jobs‘ film. He has always been a writer, but hasn’t yet sat in that director’s chair yet. That’s all about to change as Sony has offered him to direct his first film as well as writer it, or shall I say adapt it from the 2014 book, ‘Molly’s Game: From Hollywood’s Elite to Wall Street’s Billionaire Boy’s Club, My High-Stakes Adventure in the World of Underground Poker‘, which is the memoir of Molly Bloom.

DC fans have made themselves heard – loudly – on their presumptions of how ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ is going to be. Some are excited, some are…less so. One fan even equated his expectations of Ben Affleck’s Batman to casting Barack Obama as Ronald Reagan. So this film is clearly torn down the middle as far as the fans outlook. We now have a small, slight, tiny peek, so small it can’t even be called a trailer in preparation of the full trailer dropping tomorrow night during ‘Jimmy Kimmel‘, so try, if possible, to reserve judgment.

Check out what we’ve been given and see what you think!



Hey guys, Jana here, diesel-close

What do we know about Vin Diesel? We know he’s an avid ‘Dungeons and Dragons‘ player of over 24 years, he might have been ‘Daredevil‘ had he accepted before it was passed on to Ben Affleck, once upon a time he even did a promotional video on….how to break dance! We also know a bit more about the actor now that he’s announced ‘Riddick 4′ in addition to a spinoff turned TV series!

Hey guys, Jana here,

Warner Brothers and DC Comics had the con all to themselves as Marvel skipped this year due to not having enough current projects close enough to completion to show off or warrant a big panel gathering. So the Warner Bros. panel was a standing room only crowd and their anticipation paid off as two big trailers debuted for the fans: ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ and ‘Suicide Squad‘ played to roaring approval.

The official plan to release the ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice‘ trailer this coming Monday, but some dude with a camera phone spoiled those plans and put their shaky, grainy version with Portuguese subtitles out into the interwebs.  Zack Snyder reacted by giving the fans what we want, a peek at the trailer.

Director Zack Snyder must have one hell of a poker face, at least it would appear so considering how close to the chest he’s holding his cards dealing with ‘Batman V Superman‘. Any news or photos from the project have been deftly released under Snyder’s instructions.

John Woo is Remaking ‘Manhunt’!

HI everyone, Bryan Here…

We haven’t seen much of director John Woo (‘Face/Off‘, ‘Mission Impossible II‘) for a while now. Sure, he made ‘Red Cliff‘ a few years ago, but the last time Woo did something anyone would recognize was back in 2003 with the movie ‘Paycheck‘ that starred Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman. Well it seems now that Woo will remake ‘Manhunt’, based on the novel by Juko Nishimura.

Director Richard Linklater has been in the news lately with his Oscar nomination for ‘Boyhood‘, the film that took 12 years to film, before that his name was always hand-in-hand with ‘Dazed and Confused‘ that stunning peek into the last day of school in the 70’s and made names out of Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck.

We have our first full-length trailer for the new Marvel series ‘Daredevil‘, which will air exclusively on Netflix. I must say, this looks pretty good. Charlie Cox (‘Boardwalk Empire‘) is playing Matt Murdock/Daredevil along with Vincent D’Onofrio playing Kingpin.

The New ‘Daredevil’ Series Comes to Netflix on….

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Mark your calendars for April 10th, because that is when the new Marvel series ‘Daredevil‘ will debut exclusively on Netflix. Season one will have 13 – one hour episodes, which will all be available at midnight on April 10th. I really enjoy the first attempt at the feature film that starred Ben Affleck, Jon Favreau, Colin Farrell, and Michael Clarke Duncan. Let me rephrase that, I enjoyed the director’s cut of the film, which is Highly Recommended. But this new series is shaping up quite nicely.

Jana’s Best/Worst of 2014!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 15th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

PicMonkey Collage

 

It’s been a big year for the entertainment world. Netflix’s initial push to bring movie-theater worthy films straight to streaming customers and bypassing the big screen altogether set off a chain of deals that will take those fresh releases and push them directly into homes allowing us to bypass a $15.00 soda, but denying us the $20.00 popcorn you can only get at the theater.Then came the deluge of series and movies being made for exclusive run with everyone from Netflix, Amazon to Crackle and everything in between. Top that off with the huge breach of privacy Sony experienced. New releases were flooded onto P2P sharing sites and private emails from the film company’s big wigs that show us how the infrastructure of Sony really works, not to mention what those involved really think of some of their superstars.

Christian Bale to Play Steve Jobs?!?!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

Steve-Jobs-Stamp

Don’t worry. If you were wanting more biopics about Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple Computers, then you’re in luck. Recently, Sony is making yet another Steve Jobs pic and as of a week or so ago, Leonardo DiCaprio was set to play Jobs. But talks fell through and DiCaprio is no longer set to star. But don’t fret, Sony has someone else in mind. And that person is a superhero.

Marvel Entertainment now has a full fledged rival with Warner Bros. and DC Comics. Warner Bros. and DC Comics has just announced all of its superhero films through 2020, plus a few Lego films and new ‘Harry Potter‘ movies. Needless to say, the theaters are going to be packed and each studio is going to be vying for the top box office placement and receipts.

Dave Fincher got his start directing music videos, and one of them is my favorite, “Express Yourself.” It has that definitive gritty, dark and wonderful feeling that Fincher film has come to possess.
