Film Review: ‘Hail, Caesar!”

by Gumbercules9000 on Feb 3rd, 2016

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

It’s always a good time when the Coen Bros. have a new movie in theaters. Film after film, the Coen Bros. have not only told bizarre, funny, violent, musical stories, but have conjured up some of the best characters in movie history. Their uncanny talent for telling stories on film is unrivaled with each movie they make. Their latest endeavor tackles the early years of Hollywood, specifically the year 1951, in a film called ‘Hail, Caesar!‘ that has an A-List cast of Coen regulars and newcomers. Even though the posters and trailers show this A-List cast throughout, the film follows one man, and that is Eddie Mannix (Josh Brolin), based on the real life Mannix who was a big time producer and  “fixer” at MGM.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Pee-wee-Netflix

Yup, it’s true, ‘Pee-Wee’s Big Holiday‘ has been in the works and now we can announce that the premier is set for March 18.

Film Review: ‘Amy’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 7th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

amy-cannes-film-festival

Amy Winehouse might have been one of the best all time jazz singers in the world. In fact, I believe she still can hold that title, even almost five years after her death. Her voice was something unlike anyone ever heard and could be in the same league as Etta James, Billie Holiday, and Edith Piaf. In addition to her voice, she was charming, witty, and a ton of fun to be around. You just couldn’t get enough of her likable personality. Unfortunately in 2011, Amy died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27, making her one of the latest members of the ’27 club’, which Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, and Brian Jones all belong to.

Film Review: ‘Spy’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 4th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

Director Paul Feig and actress Melissa McCarthy make one hell of a team. Since ‘Bridesmaids‘, this duo have struck box office gold. It seems like Feig loves putting McCarthy in very similar roles, particularly a character who works for law enforcement or some government intelligence agency. In ‘Bridesmaids‘, McCarthy’s character was a CIA analyst who had the codes for all the nukes. In ‘The Heat‘, she was a hardcore Boston police officer and detective.

But now it seems that Sony has much bigger plans for ‘Ghostbusters‘.

Film Review: ‘Black or White’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 29th, 2015

A family has a mother, father, and maybe children, a standard definition of a family.  A family is a group of people who are related to each other, yet another definition.  Nowhere in either definition is a mention of color, right?  Since the beginning of time families have blended nationality, ethnicity, and race.  This fact doesn’t make the families any less bound.

Hey guys, Jana here,

Riding high on the coat tails of Tina Fey’s final Golden Globe’s hosting gig, Netflix has released the first trailer for their new show from Fey and Robert Carlock (writer for ‘Friends‘, ‘Saturday Night Live‘ and ‘30 Rock‘). ‘Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt‘ was originally conceived for a run on NBC, but Netflix swooped in for the rights once NBC backed out.

Film Review: ‘The Wedding Ringer’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 16th, 2015

Janet W., Here…

You’re getting married.  This should be the happiest event of your life, right?  Well, what if you have no friends?  What if the people you barely know won’t be there for your special day?  Meet Doug Harris (Josh Gad).  Harris called any person that was in his vicinity as he grew up.  He’s nerdy and chubby and doesn’t have a friend in the world.  For Harris, meeting the woman of your dreams, Gretchen Palmer (Kaley Cuoco-SweetingBig Bang Theory), and having her say yes to marriage is more than a score, it’s a miracle to him.  She’s blonde, she’s beautiful, and she has seven bridesmaids.  So, how does a perceived loser matchup with that?  Where is Harris going to get seven groomsmen when he cannot even find a best man?  Enter, Jimmy Callahan (Kevin Hart) a slick talking idea man that can make anyone look good…he is The Wedding Ringer.

2015 Disney Film Release Dates With Trailers!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Dec 30th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

star-wars-disney-570x307

While the world is focusing on auld lang syne and bringing 2014 to a close, Disney is pointedly looking to the future or “To infinity and beyond!” as Buzz Lightyear would say. Walt Disney Studios has given us a wide list of release dates for 2015 including the first Star Wars since the mouse has taken ownership. It’s a big lineup and will, no doubt, bring in a wega-payday for the company. In the last year, three films, ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘, ‘Maleficent‘ and ‘Captain America Winter Soldier‘ brought in over $700 million world-wide on their own. It stands to reason they can expect the same from 2015. Let’s kick it off with some animation!

Chris August Concert Review!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 29th, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Chris+August+42nd+Annual+GMA+Dove+Awards+Press+DRSt5f72Rlll

 

 

Some days, I think my career choice didn’t end up exactly how I wanted then I’m reminded of what a charmed life I really lead. Sure, I’m not a transplant surgeon or even a serial killer tracker for the FBI, but I’ve got the most gravy job out there. Where else can I stay in the relative comfort of my own home, write about TV, movies, singers and theatre shows I love? I’m sure we can all do that from our parents’ basement, but I don’t have prison pallor from living underground for months on end with the only break to be for a Cheetos run. Part of this awesome opportunity I have in writing for Boomstick, is that I’m not only able, but encouraged to go see concerts, theatre runs, films whatever the case may be. It’s good being me! So I didn’t start this just to brag on my glorious job, I get to tell you all about a fantastic event I attended last Friday and the artist I got to spend some one-on-one time with.
