Film Review: BAYWATCH!

by Gumbercules9000 on May 23rd, 2017

Dan M., here….

baywatccast

We need to get one thing straight as we start this review. Baywatch is not a movie to be judged on it’s plot. This movie exists in the same realm as Horrible Bosses, Spy, We’re The Millers, 21 Jump Street, & Neighbors. It has just enough plot so that it can get from joke to joke or gag to gag as efficiently as possible. It succeeds in this regard and has a really high “joke landing” percentage. More importantly, as a vehicle for unbelievably attractive people to let loose and be funny, Baywatch goes above and beyond. It is a showcase for these actors to show they’re really, really funny.

We’ve Got The First Peek At ‘Baywatch’!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 8th, 2016

Hey guys, Jana here,

From Seth Gordon, the director responsible for ‘Horrible Bosses‘ and ‘Identity Thief‘, comes ‘Baywatch‘, the big-screen incarnation of the small-screen hit that ran for 11 seasons. I’d be hard-pressed to give you a description of the series as it was basically just beautiful people, like Pamela Anderson and David Hasselhoff, running on the sand. I always thought it aired late at night, in syndication, as an *aid* to help teenage boys go to sleep.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Straight Outta Compton’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 26th, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

THE FILM

Music biopics are one of my favorite genres of film. I love seeing a musical artist or band portrayed on screen and their rise to fame, complete with how they came up with their platinum hits, warts and all. As of lately, we haven’t seen a ton of these biopics with the exception of the excellent ‘Love & Mercy‘ about Beach Boys member Brian Wilson. Most of the biopics usually focus on one person or a band and go up until they hit it big, but that’s not the case with ‘Straight Outta Compton‘, which is more of a bio-epic than a biopic. Instead of following one person, the film follows three main characters with a treasure trove of other superstar artists.

Pet Sounds‘ was released in May of 1966 and is celebrating a special 50th anniversary this year. ‘Pet Sounds‘ is, of course, the title of a Beach Boys groundbreaking album which contains some of the bands most renowned singles. From ‘Wouldn’t It Be Nice‘ and ‘God Only Knows‘ to ‘Caroline, No‘ they’re all here, and in honor of this critically acclaimed LP, Brian Wilson is launching a world-wide tour to honor it. When Rolling Stone ranked the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time, ‘Pet Sounds‘ came in at number two.

Film Review: ‘The Wolfpack’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 14th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

holding-wolfpack-sundance-film-festival

I wasn’t quite sure of what to expect from ‘The Wolfpack‘. I went in only know a thing or two about this documentary, but what I got was so much more. Some of us turn to reading as a form of escapism and happiness where others might turn to religion, or nature. For me, it was always music and movies. After a hard day of work or school, I knew I could always come home and listen to a good record or watch a film and be totally content. It’s almost like being at home whenever I watch a movie or listen to music, no matter where I am.

Here is Ben’s Review of ‘It Follows’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 13th, 2015

Ben K., Here…

it-follows-cannes-2014-4

It’s not every day one can say they witnessed a unique premise in a horror film. Fresh ideas are rare in this genre of dumb character decisions, “jump out” scares, and people falling down for no reason. With It Follows, writer/director David Robert Mitchell actually begins with the common horror trope of teenagers being punished for having sex, but then he spins it into something brilliantly horrifying.

John Stamos Thrusting Back To TV In Four Projects!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 2nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

john stamos

 

 

John Stamos may be best known for his gig on ‘Full House‘ as Uncle Jesse, but it’s unfair to characterize his acting range by constantly putting him in that box. He’s still just as swoon-worthy as he was in the 80’s which has to help his bankability when he’s auditioning for a new role.

As of now, he’s got a couple of high-profile projects in the works. He’s currently the frontrunner as the male lead of ABC’s midseason drama series, ‘Members Only‘. The actor born with the last name Stamotopoulos (Thank God he shortened that one!) is looking to topline and executive produce the unnamed comedy series in the works, also with ABC Studios and will be working with comedy producer Dan Fogelman (‘The Neighbors‘).  Not to mention the most highly anticipated return to television of all – ‘Full House‘, which is in a reboot phase at Warner Bros. TV.

Film Review: ‘Hellion’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 10th, 2014

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

13906-1

Texas-based filmmaker Kat Candler delivers a great dramatic story with excellent performances by her actors in her feature film ‘Hellion‘, which is based off of her 2012 short film of the same name. I love when director’s get the opportunity to tell their full story on screen from previous short, and ‘Hellion‘ is sure to have audiences talking about it for days to come. Director Jeff Nichols, whose previous film was the award-winning ‘Mud‘, served as executive producer for ‘Hellion‘, which is fitting, because both feature a couple of young adolescent boys in serious adult situations. While some of ‘Hellion’s script has a few problems, it makes up for it ten-fold with its directing and acting.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘My Way’!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 5th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Je-kyu Kang’s ’My Way’ is not just a film you watch, it’s a full emotional experience.  ’My Way’ will take you on a moving journey through several countries and languages as you grown a bond with the two main characters.  This is Korea’s most expensive film to date and you will immediately see that.  ’My Way’ is epic on all levels.  This is one of the better films I have seen in recent memory and most definitely the best film dealing with war-time since Spielberg’s ‘Saving Private Ryan’.
