Nov/2019

The big summer blockbuster is almost here. I’m not talking about a scoundrel and Wookiee meeting for the first time either. I’m talking about WWE’s 31st annual SummerSlam PPV of entertainment and pro-wrestling, which is set to take place on August 19th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York and can be watched live in HD on the WWE Network for $9.99 a month or for free if you’re a new subscriber. Over the next few days, our writer Angi and I will be conjuring up some entertaining pieces about each match at SummerSlam 2018. We’ll cover each WWE Superstar, the background of the match, the odds of winning, and what to look out for in each match.

Film Review: ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 25th, 2018

Who would have thought that some 22 years later, we would still be getting ‘Mission: Impossible‘ films with Tom Cruise as the go-to guy in saving the world time and time again?  I definitely didn’t expect this, but I’m thrilled Tom Cruise and company continue to make these electrifying films that seem to up the ante and get better with each installment. Tom Cruise is 56 years old, which is 5 years older than Wilford Brimley was in the movie ‘Cocoon‘. Let that sit with you for a minute. What I’m trying to say is that Cruise doesn’t look nor does he act like a 56-year-old man. Instead, he looks and acts like a 25-year-old youngster with a death wish and penchant for the extreme and I believe every second of it, especially in this sixth film ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout‘.

Dan Moran’s Review of ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 4th, 2018

Ant-Man & The Wasp is perfectly fine. Its ok. It is certainly a two hour movie in which things happen. I was entertained by things that happened in this movie, that I definitely saw, but I don’t think matter at all. I love Paul Rudd. Evangeline Lily as Wasp is delightful. Michael Pena steals every single scene he is in again. Michael Douglas certainly enjoys his paycheck. Walton Goggins is wasted, but my face lit up every time he spoke. This is without a doubt the best cast of all the solo Marvel films. The problem with the movie is that it was released at the worst possible time to get anyone to care about it.

Best Movies of the First Half of 2018!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 28th, 2018

I’ve had the chance to see a ton of movies this year but still feel like I have missed out on some indie ones that are necessary to catch before December. Below is my list so far. I was really shocked with what a good year it has been for horror and movies staying with me in general. It is pretty rare that I think about a movie days after seeing it but this year there have been so many.

4K UHD Review: ‘Forrest Gump’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 12th, 2018

THE FILM


In 1986, author Winston Groom gave us the book ‘Forrest Gump‘, about a simple minded guy who accomplished a lot through his life, including running a shrimping boat and being an astronaut. That book was made into an award winning film called ‘Forrest Gump‘ that starred Tom Hanks as Gump and Robin Wright Penn, amongst other people. Even though there are many differences from the book, this adaptation that director Robert Zemeckis made was truly inspirational, emotional, and a lot of fun.

Film Review #2: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 24th, 2018

Avengers: Infinity War isn’t just the next chapter in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The movie is the culmination, better yet coronation, of the universe to this point. This is the film that will actually be remembered and talked about years from now. Ten years in the making, eighteen films deep, and at least 30 characters so that we could get here. It’s astonishing that they pulled this off. Infinity War, when all is said and done, will likely be the crowning achievement of this cinematic universe.

WWE: Braun Strowman Goes to Wrestlemania 34!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 22nd, 2018

With Wrestlemania 34 just a few weeks out, the city of New Orleans is preparing for a tidal wave of wrestling superstars and their many rabid fans of all ages to partake in the cajun food, festivities, and even some good old fashioned wrestling on the grandest stage of them all – Wrestlemania. WWE is quickly stacking the card with matchups leading up to the big day, which I thought would be a good time to discuss some of the wrestler’s storylines and what we can expect on the big day. Enter Braun Strowman.

We have a very fun 75th episode of our fun podcast under the MULTI-MEDIA MEN banner called ‘Media-Ocrity‘, where the show is just – okay. Here on the show, we focus strictly on horror/sci-fi, comic books, and video games – basically all the fun stuff that tickles your fancy. In our 75th episode, titled ‘Luke Didn’t Save Solo at Toys R Us‘, we discuss the ‘Tomb Raider‘ remake, some new Blu-rays and 4K UHD Discs, Stephen Hawking, the closing of Toys R Us and more. We also talk about how Luke Skywalker didn’t have a plan to save Han Solo at the start of ‘Return of the Jedi‘. Our two big topics consisted of pitching your own “VS” movie in the style of something like ‘Freddy Vs Jason‘ or ‘Alien Vs Predator‘, along with which old video games we would like to see newly made for current video game consoles. It was so much fun. This episode is guaranteed to thrill you, chill you, and fulfill you. I am joined pop-culture wizard Jonathan Atterbury and comic book artist Jeremy Megert.

4K UHD Review: ‘Justice League’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2018

 

THE FILM


(This film portion was written by Dan Moran)

There are several things about Justice League that are good. I think the cast is terrific. Gal GadotBen AffleckJason Momoa, and Ezra Miller are great in their roles. They each have a character moment (earned or not) that makes me interested in seeing their next solo adventure. DC/WB has put some talented filmmakers in charge of the next slate of movies. Justin Lin doing Aquaman sounds great, Patty Jenkins taking Wonder Woman on her next adventure, and Matt Reeves writing and directing The Batman. These are world-class filmmakers who have a great actor in the title role and hopefully that leads to some great story telling. I have no idea who is directing The Flash but I did enjoy him as the comic relief character in Justice League and would like to see if he is more than that in the future. Even Henry Cavill’s “new” Superman was delightful as he is reborn in this film and is no longer a whiney douchebag with terrible parents. Man of Steel 2 is actually on my radar now! But those are the nicest things I can say about Justice League. I loved the cast and I look forward to their solo adventures because having them all together in whatever Justice League was/is/supposed to be was a horrific insult to the fans of DC and moviegoers in general.

Film Review: ‘The Road Movie’ (2018)!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2018

Big budget action blockbusters don’t have shit on this documentary, simply titled ‘The Road Movie‘. Russian filmmaker Dmitirii Kalashnikov has expertly edited a treasure trove of what acts as the ‘Best Of” YouTube videos of Russian dashboard vehicle cameras that showcase the crazy, sick, and depraved of the Russian highways and city streets. We’ve all seen a few short 10-second clips of a car crash or some crazy Russian guy getting out of his car with a weapon over small traffic dispute.

The Hope of ‘Star Wars’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Dec 11th, 2017

Star Wars feels like the one franchise that everyone agrees on that one fundamental thing: We want it to be good and we are hopeful it will be. I can’t think of a film franchise that offers so much hope with every installment. I’m not talking about what happens on screen either, that is for someone else to write. I’m just discussing the general public and their anticipation for each entry.
