Film Review: ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 11th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Henry-Cavill-Armie-Hammer-Alicia-Vikander-in-The-Man-From-UNCLE-2015-movie

The latest Hollywood remake to hit theaters is the hit tv show from the mid-60’s ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.‘, which lasted four seasons and was partially developed by Ian Fleming just as the James Bond franchise was taking off. If you were alive during the mid-60s, you would have known that this ‘U.N.C.L.E.‘ television series was one of the best things on tv at the time, as it centered on an American spy and a Russian spy, working together to take out the bad guys in a very 007 kind of way.

Film Review: ‘Tomorrowland’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 21st, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

thumbnail_20656

There’s one hell of a cast and crew at work here for Disney’s ‘Tomorrowland‘, which is loosely based on the famous theme park at Disney resorts. Directed by Brad Bird (‘The Incredibles‘, ‘Ratatouille‘, and the recent ‘Mission Impossible‘ film), produced by Damon Lindelof (‘Lost‘ and ‘Star Trek‘), and starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, and Britt Robertson, ‘Tomorrowland‘ is a throwback to those old innovative Disney films full of adventure. I felt like a kid again through its two hour run time as I was watching each suspenseful and fun moment on the IMAX screen. That being said, ‘Tomorrowland‘ does have a few problems, but fortunately the good outweighs the bad this time around.

John Woo is Remaking ‘Manhunt’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 19th, 2015

HI everyone, Bryan Here…

John-Woo-director-of-Miss-001

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.

Hey guys, Jana here

All movies come from somewhere and the best ones come from great novels. That’s the direction Sony is heading with their plans to adapt ‘The Themis Files‘, a premiere sci-fi novel by Sylvain Neuvel as a vehicle for Matt Tolmach and Josh Bratman to produce.

This weekend, at Fan Days 2.0, Taylor and I spent a great deal of time watching and loving all of the fabulous cosplay. There was so much of it- Black Cat (Krystle Starr looked amazing!), Flash(there was an entire family!), Arrow, Arsenal, Lego Hulk (this was genius), Captain Marvel- I could go on! People brought it out, in full force, and it was on point.

Film Review: ‘Hector and the Search For Happiness’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 25th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

hector-and-the-search-for-happiness-Simon-Pegg

You can’t help but love Simon Pegg. His roles in Edgar Wright’s Cornetto Trilogy ‘Shaun of The Dead‘, ‘Hot Fuzz‘, and ‘The World’s End‘ are legendary. His work on the recent ‘Star Trek‘ films, ‘Paul‘, and in the ‘Mission Impossible‘ films have been excellent and very comical. That aside, i love seeing Pegg work on dramatic films, because not only is he one of the best comedic actors around right now, but he is also one hell of a dramatic actor, and his new film ‘Hector and the Search for Happiness‘ highlights that.

Film Review: ‘The November Man’!!

Janet W., Here…

november_man cb

Pierce Brosnan…a previous incarnation of James Bond has added producing to his repertoire.  Brosnan’s latest production is the spy thriller, The November Man, a genre with which Brosnan is a little familiar.  Peter Devereaux (Brosnan) is a super spy who trained the newbies before his retirement from the CIA.  Being the Yoda of espionage, Brosnan’s all-knowing charm shines and somewhat terrifies.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Dan Brown’s novels, beginning with ‘The Da Vinci Code’, have made excellent fodder for some seriously successful films. The old adage is true, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. This seems to be the way Sony is viewing their franchise based on Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon.  Tom Hanks, director Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer have all signed on to the third installment in the series which follows ‘The Da Vinci Code‘ and ‘Angels and Demons‘, ‘Inferno‘.

Ving Rhames Joins Indie Thriller ‘Operation’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

683-0

 

Ving Rhames hit the film scene hard in the 80’s and never looked back. Since 1984, he’s had at least one, more often several, projects each consecutive year. One of his most memorable roles was as the unfortunately brutalized Marsellus Wallace in Quentin Tarantino’s ‘Pulp Fiction’. He provided the voice for Cobra Bubbles in Disney’s animated ‘Lilo & Stitch‘, and gave life to the flamboyant Fred G. Duncan in the comedy ‘I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry‘. Rhames has gone from genre to genre and proven to be a talented entertainer with each turn.

Paramount is Remaking ‘Explorers’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 12th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

explorers-kids

Yes, Paramount is remaking one of my favorite 80’s film, ‘Explorers‘. You know the one where a young Ethan Hawke, River Phoenix, and Jason Presson built a spaceship out of an old tilt-a-whirl carnival ride? Yes that one. It is still one of my favorite movies and is one of the big reasons I got into science, space and film. Everything about the movie spoke to me as a kid, and I wanted so desperately to build a spaceship after watching that film.

Philip Seymour Hoffman 1967-2014!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 2nd, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here….

Philip_Seymour_Hoffman_as_Brandt

I still can’t believe I am writing this article. I’m in complete shock. I am upset, angry, and confused. How can stuff like this still happen, especially to people who have a means to get better. Drugs and addiction is a terrible thing. A terrible-terrible thing. And eventually, they took the life of one of the greatest actors ever to grace the big screen. I hate to write that actor Philip Seymour Hoffman has passed away earlier this Sunday of a heroine drug overdose.

Hi, Bryan Here….

 jack-reacher-tom-cruise

Paramount is prepping a sequel to ‘Jack Reacher‘, the Tom Cruise action thriller that came out in 2012, that was based on the series of books. Since the first film only cost a mere $57 million, but grossed over $218 million, it was only a matter of time before we heard news of a sequel being made. The new film will be based off the book ‘Never Go Back‘, which was published this year.

Film Review: ‘Oblivion’

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 19th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

oblivion-movie-poster-tom-cruise-joseph-kosinski-featured

It’s been a great couple of years for science fiction fans. The sci-fi genre has shown its big head again, and the masses have seem to be eating it all up.  No matter what your opinion on a particular sci-fi film of recent, you can’t deny that the genre is back with a vengeance. Films like ‘Looper’ brought the future and time travel aspects to a great level of entertainment, whereas ‘Cloud Atlas’ made us think and at times confused us as to what was going on. None the less, it was a giant spectacle on screen, much of like we have seen many times before.

Film Review: ‘Jack Reacher’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 20th, 2012

Hi, Bryan Here….

I was pleasantly surprised with the film adaptation of Lee Child‘s novel series on the character ‘Jack Reacher‘.  I was sorely let down by the film adaptation of ‘Alex Cross‘, and did not want another stinker like that.  Well, when you have talent like Christopher McQuarrie and Tom Cruise, expect a strong script, great character development, and one hell of a fun thrill ride.  ‘Jack Reacher‘ hits the mark in more ways than one.
