Morgan Freeman Joins ‘Last Vegas’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 17th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

We’ve talked about this film before.  ‘Last Vegas’ would follow four older guys in Vegas for a bachelor party where Douglas and De Niro fall for the same girl.  The studio is hoping to sign on De Niro soon, then the rest of the casting will follow.  This sounds a lot like ‘Grumpy Old Men’ mixed with ‘The Hangover’ which could be solid gold.

Hi Bryan Here…..

I had so much fun with Steven Soderbergh’s ‘Haywire’.  It’s packed with thrills, gun fights, drama, great chase sequences, and some of the best fight choreography I have seen in a long time.  Much like most of Soderbergh’s films, ‘Haywire’ packs a stellar cast including retired MMA fighter and Dallas native Gina Carano (who is our main character).  After watching ‘Haywire’, I quickly wanted more.  There needs to be a sequel pronto and I say this with the upmost certainty; ‘Haywire’ is the new ‘Bourne’ and Carano can take on Matt Damon anytime.

The Bishop Charlotte reporting….

Oh good. I was starting to get worried.

Mostly because my mother, who was ridiculously excited about the film, was starting to get worried, but I do love a good Michael Douglas flick. And Matt Damon is adorable no matter how you swing. Plus, we get to watch Michael Douglas swing towards Matt Damon! After seeing Robert De Niro pull off flamboyant (in 2007’s underrated Stardust) I’ve had an odd but acceptable desire to see other ladies’ men jump the fence for a flick.

Top 133 Films of the Last Decade #’s 84-69

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 20th, 2010

Hey, Bryan here, with the next part of the list of the Top 133 Films of the past decade.  Sorry it has been delayed here recently.  With all the news, movie premieres, being out of town, running the comic book biz, and writing new scripts, I have simply not had the time to get more films added to this list.  So hopefully from now on, I will be able to get this list knocked out every day or two.  Thank you for your patience.  This is list #’s 84 – 69.  Enjoy it.  As usual, you will get the title of the film and the year of release, plus a mini review/memory of the film plus the link to purchase the film which gives a small donation to this site so we can continue bringing you more AWESOME news and prizes.

84_ Irreversible – January, 2003

Oh Gaspar Noe.  How you have imprinted my brain with your films forever.  Especially with this one.  This is a frightening film on all levels.  Not in the monster way, but in the sick sadistic way we are as human beings.  This film is made backwards with no cuts so as to give the viewer no escape of the darkness in this film.  So the film starts out with  a gruesome murder and you find out why this happened.  It is amazing.  Tons of people walked out on this film when it premiered at Cannes.

83_ Wonder Boys – February 23, 2000

A true writer’s film.  A great film about a college professor who struggles with writing his book, drinking, drugs, killing the dean’s dog, and having an affair with his wife and stealing Marilyn Monroe’s coat.  It is a solid film with Robert Downey Jr., Tobe Maguire, and Michael Douglas.

82_ Dog Soldiers – May 10, 2002

A kick ass Werewolf movie from the director of The Descent and Doomsday.  A military unit is sent on some mission and the all end up dead.  2nd Special ops unit is sent out to find out what happened and they come across werewolves.  Tons of great gore scenes and action sequences with some great comedic dialogue along the way.  One of the great werewolf flicks.

81_ Saw – October 29, 2004

The first film that led the way for all these torture films we have seen recently.  This film is on the list because this film is what it is all about making movies.  Take friends who created this world and made this very tiny budget film shot over two weeks.  An original story, plot, and great dialogue formed this film.  It was unleashed upon the world and has spawned six more films and revived careers as well as created new ones.  It is always great to see new and inventive films.  And we got a new monster movie.  Jigsaw.  If you keep making them, I’ll keep seeing them.

80_ Watchmen – March 4, 2009

A magnificent comic book.  One of the first comics that was a complete adult theme that dealt with rape, murder, and genocide.  It was going to be very difficult to adapt this comic into a film.  But they did it very well.  I loved almost every aspect of this film.  They got it mostly right.  The filming is beautiful, the acting by Jackie Earle Haley is  top notch, and the fight sequences are amazing.  See it if you haven’t already.  Another great one by director Zack Snyder.

79_ Eastern Promises – September 14, 2007

A follow up to History of Violence with same director Cronenberg and actor Viggo Mortensen.  A Russian teenager living in London who dies during childbirth leaves clues to a midwife in her journal that could tie her child to a rape involving a violent Russian mob family.   What a great film.  Extremely violent and what a knife fight scene in a shower.  WOW.

78_ Hero – August 27, 2004

I saw this film a couple years before it was released in the USA.  This is one of the most beautiful films you will ever see.  Picture Lord of the Rings epic, but with a Japanese dynasty war twist.  A series of Rashomon-like flashback accounts shape the story of how one man defeated three assassins who sought to murder the most powerful warlord in pre-unified China.  You haven’t seen anything like it.

77_ One Hour Photo – August 21, 2002

Wow.  Does Robin Williams do an exceptional job at creeping me the fuck out?  YES YES YES.  This film is ungodly awkward and tense.  Robin Williams plays a photo clerk at a supermarket who develops all the customers photos.  Only problem is he has an unhealthy obsession with his customers by stalking them, breaking into their homes, and posting their pictures all over his apartment walls.  CREEPY.  Stellar performance.

76_ A Mighty Wind – April 16, 2003

Another gold gem from Christopher Guest.  This mockumentary is about folk music bands reunited for a one night celebration and the lives they have been living and the anticipation and set up before the big event.  The music is just phenomenal and the comedy is top notch.  Love this film.  I had the distinct pleasure of seeing one of the bands live in concert.  BRAVO.

75_ Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban – June 4, 2004

The third film in the Harry Potter series is my favorite still.  It is the most beautiful of all of them so far and it is directed by Alfonso Cuaron of Children of Men and Y Tu Mama Tambien fame.  I love this story in particular because it deals with time travel and the relationships of the kids growing up.  Coming of age sort of thing.  I love all these films and this one is at the top of the list.

74_ Spider-Man 2 – June 30, 2004

The amazing sequel that was just as good or better than the first film.  Loved it.  Doc Ock is awesome.  I love the references to Evil Dead and Army of Darkness in this film.

73_ Ocean’s 11 – December 7, 2001

The remake from the rat pack days with an outstanding cast.  This film is so much fun and spawned two sequels.  What works most with these films is the interaction and chemistry between the whole gang.  They are like a big family.  It makes you feel good.  The twists and comedic dialogue are amazing.  I wish for more, but sadly no more.  RIP Bernie Mac.

72_ The Descent – August 4, 2006

A scary film from Doomsday and Dog Soldiers director.  This film seriously freaked me out.  It is a spelunking film.  So take an extreme claustrophobic atmosphere and add monsters to the equation.  I did most certainly sweat during seeing this film.  No men in this film really.  Tons of chicks kicking ass.  Tons of gore and scares.  See it.

71_ Casino Royale – November 17, 2006

The revamp of the James Bond series is GLORIOUS.  The last several have been silly, boring, and unentertaining.  Finally someone came into the series and made badass again.  Daniel Craig brings a new life to James Bond.  I was glas to see him starting out as not a 00 agent and working his way up in the ranks.  It was also good to see Bond get his ass kicked and not be afraid to get dirty and violent.  I am looking forward to more James Bond films.

70_ King Of Kong – August 17, 2007

One of the greatest documentaries ever.  And it is about getting the high score in Donkey Kong.  Yes the arcade game.  But this is again is a classic Good Vs. Evil story but in real life.  Steve Weibe is going for the gold in beating the reigning champs high score.  The reigning champ (Billy Mitchell) will not let him achieve his gold easily.  Tons of shit goes on that is considered fraud and evil and betraying in this film.  It is crazy as well as hilarious.  GO STEVE WEIBE.

69_ Paranormal Activity – September 25, 2009

I really liked this film.  Made on a $15,000.00 budget and has made millions and millions of dollars so far as well as a sequel soon, this film shows us that you do not need any special effects or gadgetry to be scary or great.  Every time the couple is asleep and the famous shot of the entire bedroom and hallway comes on, I tense up and hope nothing happens, but always something does whether it be footsteps, doors opening or closing, sounds, or banging.  This is a scary ghost/demon story.  It definitely made me think twice about walking down the dark hall at night.

‘Obsession’ – Blu-ray Review!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2019

Back in 1976, director Brian De Palma (Scarface) and writer Paul Schrader (Taxi Driver) collaborated on a movie titled ‘Obsession‘. It was their tribute to Alfred Hitchcock’sVertigo‘ and starred Cliff Robertson and John Lithgow. The film touches on a few taboo subjects, but is nowhere near as violent as the previous mentioned films. ‘Obsession‘ is actually quite a masterpiece of the late 1970s that features a very melodramatic and thrilling story that takes you on a terrifying journey of a man who is still grieving his deceased wife and daughter.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Netflix’sBlack Mirror‘ debuted way back in 2011. A more innocent time because we didn’t have deep, lurking fears about technology and how it could do anything but improve our daily life. Then came Charlie Brooker and the anthology series that has forced me, at least, to cover all the cameras on my devices with tape or sticky tack. Coming back for it’s fourth season, we’ve got a little, and I do mean little, information on the next six episodes.
