Short Film Review: ‘Iron Spyder’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 11th, 2016

Justin Cline, here…

1-logline

With a running time of less than twelve minutes, Iron Spyder allows us all-too-brief entry into a world many of us are unlikely to visit in our lifetimes. Fight Club may have started the conversation about underground fisticuffs (though you were clearly told to keep it to yourself—twice), but Spyder explores where the idea has gone, incorporating sex, drugs, and money. Lots of money.

4K UHD Review: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’!

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

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.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

As I’m recovering from seven insane days of ‘Wrestlemania 32‘ in Dallas, TX., I’ve had time to reflect, contemplate, saturate, and regurgitate every I event I attended. I had my box of Booty O’s to make sure I wasn’t Booty thru the weekend, met some good people, watched some amazing matches, talked with some WWE Superstars, and lost my voice when Shane-O-Mac put his life on the line for the WWE Business. To quote a certain former WWE announcer, it was a slobberknocker of a week for sure that hit me in the solar plexus more times than I’d like to admit. WWE really did it up big this year for Wrestlemania 32. Not only did they put on several good shows, but they also broke records. There was over 101,000 people in attendance at AT&T Stadium for Wrestlemania 32, beating the previous record from Wrestlemania 3 by quite a bit. Not only that, ticket sales and merch sales were way up as well from previous years. It seems like WWE is growing exponentially with more and more fans tuning in every week. That’s a good thing. Instead of writing a recap of the entire weekend, I’ll give you some details of some of the cooler things I witnessed over the past week.

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-gods-1

Neil Gaiman is one of those authors that everyone has heard of and most everyone that reads him, likes what they find. I was a little late to the Gaiman party only getting interested in his work in the last few years, the one thing I didn’t read when I began my Gaiman journey was ‘American Gods‘. Oh mon dieu! I corrected the error of my ways after our Editor-in-Chief, Bryan couldn’t believe I hadn’t read it, yet. Ironically, I was putting together an article on books that should be made into film and this was his suggestion.  I spent a weekend with the tome and fell in love and agreement, this book SHOULD have a film counterpart. The universe responded with wish granted.

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.

Check Out The Trailer For Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Apr 13th, 2015

Hey guys, Jana here,

Marvel and Disney have the goose that lays golden eggs with their collaborations on comic movies, no one can deny the success of ‘The Avengers‘ or ‘Captain America‘, not to mention ‘Iron Man‘ and ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘. So it was a safe gamble to move forward with the lesser known ‘Ant-Man‘, and the fan excitement for the film shows it was a good choice.

Hey guys, Jana here,

spider_man_cover__comic_inspired__by_stick_man_11-d7bzjq7

The film world of comic book heroes is much like the Earth we are used to, gossip runs towns and friendships/alliances can be destroyed in moments with loose lips. The character drawing so much speculation today is Spider-Man. In particular, his film roles, when they release and who will be writing and directing the project.

‘Ant-Man’ Begins Production and Fills Out Cast!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 18th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

1608470801_1355278853

 

 

 

Today marks the beginning of filming for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’. It has been a winding road getting to this point though. There has been a change in director and the loss of 3 cast-members due to scheduling issues because of delays. Some of us probably thought it would be a miracle of Marvel proportions if it were to ever make it to the big screen. Some of the reason for doubt stems from the fact that original director Edgar Wright had been working on bringing the 2D superhero to life since 2006 with very limited success.

Edgar Wright Will Not Be Directing ‘Ant-Man’ Anymore!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Worlds End - Photocall

I’m afraid I have some bad news. Director Edgar Wright has exited ‘Ant-Man‘, the upcoming Marvel film. This just sucks. Wright who has directed ‘Shaun of the Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, ‘The World’s End‘, and ‘Scott Pilgrim‘ was announced as the director of ‘Ant-Man‘ a few years ago and recently released casting news that Paul Rudd was going to star in the film. Well, we got word today that Wright and Marvel have parted ways due to creative differences on where they want to see the film go.

Well it looks like Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. has an official title for the new Batman/Superman movie, which will be called ‘Dawn of Justice‘. I bet that means Dawn of the ‘Justice League‘, which Warner Bros. has been planning for quite sometime now. The film is set to open up on may 6th, 2016 and production has officially begun.

First Image of Ben Affleck as Batman!!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Director Zack Snyder took to his TWITTER account and released the first photo of the new Batmobile and Ben Affleck as Batman. The monochrome image has Affleck in the batsuit with new Batmobile as he looks menacing. I have to say, it looks good. Enjoy. The Batman-Superman film will be released May 6th, 2016.

Hello, Jana here,

_batman_vs__superman___world_s_finest__poster_by_nieoein-d6jkswg

It looks like Warner Bros. is banking pretty heavily on Zack Snyder’sBatman vs. Superman‘ release, with a so-so reception of last year’s ‘Man of Steel‘, they gave him a sequel. Not only is he doing a sequel, he cast Ben Affleck as Batman which has drawn cheers and jeers, mostly jeers, from the public since then. So it seems a little ridiculous to me that Warner Bros. has already announced a ‘Justice League‘ movie helmed by Snyder. I’m not saying a ‘Justice League‘ film isn’t a good idea, I just don’t think building the DC Universe off of the ‘Man of Steel‘ platform is the way to do it.

The Superhero business is a big money maker and anything associated with Marvel Comics is getting snatched up as quickly as if Speed Demon were picking up a littered yard. The geek-friendly brand has just closed a deal with media giant, Netflix, to produce at least four 13-episode series that will lead up to a miniseries of The Defenders.

Hi, Bryan Here…

Warner Bros. and IMAX theatres let loose today a bit of the synopsis for Snyder’s reboot of Superman as well as confirmed that it will be fully in IMAX 3D.  ‘Man of Steel’ plans to release next summer.  And for those of you attending ComiCon this year, be sure to check out the ‘Man of Steel’ panel, for I’m sure you will get some footage and information on what we can expect from the new film.  Hopefully a trailer will be released. Below is a release from IMAX and Warner Bros.

FedMex Reviews ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 3rd, 2012

FedMex Here….

The Amazing Spider-man is a mixed bag of treats for the whole family.  The character is being revamped at scantly over a decade since the franchise proved to be box office gold, and one can only assume that the only real reason for bringing back the web slinger is to rejuvenate the comic book hero at a time where comic book movies are both incredibly profitable and highly critically acclaimed.

There have been rumors floating around for a while now that Batman will get a reboot/remake once this 3rd Batman film is finished and released.  Kinda like how there is going to be a new Spider-Man film reboot coming up.  Well the rumors are officially true.  There will be a Batman reboot.

Hi Bryan Here…

Hi folks.  Boomstick Comics has a new writer who will be contributing reviews, news and all sorts of AWESOME to the site.  I have known him for the better part of almost fifteen years now and I can say is when he is not eating carrot cake covered with Lucky Charms, he enjoys all types of films and music, and enjoys a good lightsaber battle.  He will be known as the Twelfth_Angry_Man. So give him a warm welcome and enjoy his review/recap of FAILS & WINS from this 1st season of AMC’s Walking Dead.

The Beach House – Shudder Film Review!

“The Beach House reminds you that sometimes romantic beach vacations can turn into an apocalyptic nightmare too!”

Everyone is understandably upset about the lack of typical summer activities this year due to Covid-19. No camps, no lake parties, no beach vacations, etc. Well, Shudder’s new movie The Beach House does everything it can to ruin the thought of a nice little romantic trip to the coast.

Dolittle – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 15th, 2020

“Dolittle is a fine two-hour escape for January.”

Fresh off of sacrificing himself to save the universe in Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr. graces our cinemas with his latest movie ‘Dolittle‘ this weekend. Clearly feeling the goodwill from Iron Man, RDJ decides to employ the strangest accent for his new hero. Dolittle is a perfectly passable family movie in the dumping ground of January movies. It is PG, it is short, and it has a few amusing moments to keep the family entertained on a cold weekend.

‘Avengers: Endgame’ 4K UHD Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 13th, 2019

The culmination of everything we’ve seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe since the first Iron Man movie in 2008 is here with Avengers: Endgame. Back in 2008, a few people had a big idea for us comic book fans. That idea started with Iron Man, where at the end of the film, Samuel L. Jackson showed up and wanted to get a team together. That team would be the Avengers, that would go on to team up everyone’s favorite superheroes, including Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Spider-Man, Dr. Strange, Captain Marvel, Ant-Man, The Wasp, The Guardians of the Galaxy, Scarlett Witch, Vision, The Winter Soldier, and a few others. Spread over the course of ten years, these filmmakers and Marvel Studio execs have crafted an intense storyline that has continued over the last decade with rich and iconic characters that have had their own movies to shine, along with teaming up here and there to take on bigger threats.

‘Hobbs and Shaw’ – Film Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 31st, 2019

“‘Hobbs and Shaw’ is a fun movie that deserves to be seen loud and with friends.”

I was watching the original Fast and Furious movie the other day and realized that film is now considered a drama with a car chase and a couple of gun blasts. I wouldn’t regard it is a big action movie anymore, which is odd to say. Over the past decade or more, these Fast and Furious movies have grown into mega-budget action blockbusters that tend to lean over how they can top the previous action sequence along with a couple of funny lines of dialogue. Now don’t get me wrong, I enjoy these movies on an over-the-top level where I can appreciate the insane spectacle on screen. It’s a fun break from the more serious stories I see. Now we have the first spinoff movie from that franchise called ‘Hobbs and Shaw‘, that stars the characters Luke Hobbs (Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) from the Fast and Furious franchise.
