Film Review: ‘Mr. Holmes’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 15th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here….

maxresdefault

I’m a huge fan of anything Sherlock Holmes. I’ve read the books, watched the TV series, and own the films. Heck, I even own some of the Sherlock Holmes stories on vinyl. Needless to say, I’m a huge fan. We’ve seen a ton of incarnations of the famous British detective over the years. Recently though, Holmes has become very popular due to the films that starred Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes and of course the hit BBC series ‘Sherlock‘ that stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman as Sherlock and Watson respectively. The amount of fandom for these projects have even spawned new shows and other films in the past year or so as well. It just seems that we all can’t get enough of Sherlock and those famous suspenseful mysteries.

Film Review: ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 29th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

To basically start out the summer of 2015 with a big bang, comes the highly anticipated sequel to Marvel’s 2012’s ‘Avengers‘ film, which is titled ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron‘. It’s been a long time coming too. Ever since 2008, when we saw Robert Downey Jr. put on the Iron Man suit for the first time, we all knew Marvel Entertainment had a huge franchise on their hands, as they teased a big film called ‘The Avengers‘, which put a lot of our favorite superheroes together to fight evil. After several solo movies with the likes of Hulk, Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man, we finally got an ‘Avengers‘ movie in 2012, which made over $1 billion for Marvel and Disney, and was met with much praise and critical success. It was because of this, that Marvel has announced tons of superhero films through the year 2019 that will play into their overall story arc they have been building since 2008. We’ve all been anxiously awaiting this sequel for quite some time now, with tons of posters and trailers that have more than elevated our calm levels with excitement. Now the time is finally here for another hefty dose of ‘Avengers‘ with each superhero returning along with Joss Whedon directing.

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!

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

We first saw a trailer for Joss Whedon and Marvel Comics’Avengers 2: Age of Ultron‘ a few weeks ago where we saw a ver menacing Ultron (voiced by James Spader) singing a very creepy version of ‘I’ve Got No Strings On Me’. Someone leaked the trailer before it was supposed to debut on ‘Agents of SHIELD‘, to which Marvel answered by just releasing it early. It was quite comical, but one thing is for sure, the trailer was amazing.

Film Review: ‘The Judge’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 10th, 2014

Suzanne L., Here…

TheJudge

With a story that bounces among family drama, courtroom drama, and love story, The Judge takes on a lot with its all-star cast, but in spite of performances by Robert Duvall and Robert Downey Jr., the movie falls short. What was intended to come off as moving is more maudlin than impactful.

Russell Crowe-Ryan Gosling Pic Secures Release Date!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Sep 2nd, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

ryan_russell__span

 

Warner Bros and Shane Black have teamed up again, this time for a detective thriller starring the ever-so-gorgeous Russell Crowe and the guy most women swoon for, Ryan Gosling. Warners have taken the date of June 17, 2016 as their release date for ‘The Nice Guys. In another fantastic turn of events for the film besides pairing the two co-stars up is that Shane Black co-wrote the script. Black and Warner Bros is not the only reunion taking place in this film, Joel Silver is coming on board as a producer like he was with Black’s ‘Lethal Weapon‘. The film was officially picked up in July and plans to start production are this fall.

Shane Black Tackles ‘The Destroyer’ for Sony!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Aug 21st, 2014

Hey guys, Jana here,

 

 

Shane-Black

 

Everyone has favorite directors or writers and Shane Black has been one of mine since I fell in love with his work in the late 80’s. The first character that took my breath away was Martin Riggs from ‘Lethal Weapon‘, he also wrote ‘The Monster Squad‘ and gave birth to the line that any true 80’s child will say when they hear that film name – “Wolfman’s got nards!”  That’s when I took note of Shane Black and thought he was an under-rated gem in the writing world. That was quickly followed up with ‘The Last Boyscout‘ and ‘Last Action Hero’ films that supported the original idea that Black was talented and the first films were NOT a fluke.  Black then proved his mettle as a director/writer with the snarky offering into the world of noir with ‘Kiss Kiss Bang Bang‘. This was Robert Downey Jr’s love song to Hollywood that signified the turning point of his career from troubled actor, to serious phenomenon ready to be taken seriously. Black gave him the direction and the words and RDJ slammed the ball out of the park. Black’s latest foray into directing came from ‘Iron Man 3‘ when he re-teamed with RDJ. He has 3 other projects in the wind at the moment with ‘The Nice Guys‘ a ‘Predator‘ reboot and ‘Doc Savage‘.

The Top 10 Perfectly Cast Movie Roles!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 18th, 2014

Paul N., Here…

Top Ten Perfectly Cast Roles 

The Bard of Avon said it best, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon them.” Some actors are great, and shine in everything they do (Leonardo DiCaprio, Gary Oldman, Daniel Day-Lewis). Some actors are smart enough to pick roles that best use their limited skill sets (Keanu Reeves). This list takes a look at the perfect pairing of actor and role. In this list, you will find a pairing of actor and role so great that the actor ceases to be themselves and instead makes the character take on a life of its own. These pairings are so uniquely theirs that you can’t imagine anyone else taking their place should Hollywood have the audacity to try.

Film Review: ‘Chef’!!

Janet W. Here…

Chef Movie (5)

Succulent dishes, funny men, beautiful women, and the cutest kid you’d ever want to meet make ‘Chef‘ sound like a win-win, right?  Well ‘Chef‘  is all of that and then some.  Written, directed, and starring Jon Favreau, ‘Chef is a delicious and punchy comedy.  Set in present day, Carl Casper (Favreau) is a man in the perfect profession as a chef, because he lives for the culinary creations.  However, Carl’s creative mind is imprisoned, which goes hand-in-hand when working for a controlling and condescending restaurateur, Riva (Dustin Hoffman).

‘The Addams Family Re-Cast!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 4th, 2014

Hi, Bryan Here…

the-addams-family

Here is our fourth Re-Cast of the year, where if you are unfamiliar with our famous Re-Casts, we take an older film or tv show and re-cast it if it were remade today. And this week, we have chosen the iconic film ‘The Addams Family‘ to re-cast. There were no stipulations this time around, so if someone wanted to cast Nicolas Cage for every role, they could.. But after we finished the casting session, and finished our picks, I definitely want to see this movie. Of course, it’s always difficult to replace the original cast, but in this day and age of remakes, anythig is possible, so this is who we think would do best in these roles. This was a lot of fun. We will be posting some images of our re-cast for you to see in full on our FACEBOOK page, which you should visit to catch up on all the latest information. And don’t forget to visit iTunes and subscribe to our podcast. Enjoy the show.

Warner Bros. Is Building A ‘Lego Movie’ Sequel!!!

by Red Zeppelbon on Feb 24th, 2014

Jana B. here,

 

The Lego Movie

After the ‘Lego Movie‘ proved to be such a massive blockbuster hit world-wide, Warner Brothers is not letting any of the momentum die down before announcing a sequel. While the details about the coming film are sketchy at best, one thing we know for sure is the release date has been staked out for May 26, 2017, with it being the beginning of the long Memorial Day weekend, we can assume it will be the tentpole for their summer film releases. At this point, this is the only film to claim the release date. So far, the only real thing that has been confirmed is the release date and that it will be the Lego universe. The rumor mill is spinning with whether or not it will be a proper sequel to the film in theaters now or if it will be a Lego Ninjago spinoff.

Blu-Ray Review: ‘Iron Man 3’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 17th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

iron-man3

With ‘Iron Man 2‘ proving to be less than stellar back in 2010, this third sequel of the Marvelhero returns with a much needed boost of attitude and character that takes us through many twists and turns and tons of new Iron Man suits. This can be considered a sequel to both 2010′s ‘Iron Man‘ and Joss Whedon’s ‘The Avengers‘. Director Shane Black tosses away much of the wham-bam action scenes and focuses on the quick witted humor and our hero’s internal struggle with crippling panic attacks. I have no doubt this will be a fan favorite of the franchise.

Hollywood is Remaking ‘Weird Science’!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Apr 18th, 2013

Hi, Bryan Here….

Weird_Science_Cast_760

John Hughes would not be happy about this. Universal Pictures and Silver Pictures are set to remake ‘Weird Science’, the 1985 iconic film that was the superlative tale of nerds who had their ultimate wish come true. Joel Silver will produce the film as he produced the original with Hughes back in the 80s. Michael Bacall will pen the screenplay for the remake. Bacall wrote the remake of ‘21 Jump Street’ (which was another 80s remake) and the party film ‘Project X’.
