by Gumbercules9000 on May 16th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here….

Well there is is a new epic trilogy on the horizon that is getting everyone’s geek bells ringing.  I am talking of course of TINTIN.  The first in the trilogy will be ‘The Adventures of TINTIN: The Secret of the Unicorn’.  This a film that is directed by Steven Spielberg (which is his first CGI Animated directed film) and written by Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) and Joe Cornish (Attack of the Block) while being produced by Peter Jackson (Lord of the Rings).  WOW.  Is that epic or what?

Hi Bryan Here…

Director/Writer/Producer Brad Bird (Ratatouille, The Incredibles, The Simpsons, and the upcoming Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol film) accepted an award he got for excellence in animation, but was not able to attend the ceremony due to him being held captive by a couple of really suspicious people (Simon Pegg and Tom Cruise) at gun point.

Bryan’s Most Anticipated Films for 2011!!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 7th, 2011

Hi Bryan Here…

So 2010 is over and 2011 has just begun.  I was recently talking with a friend and we both agreed that 2010 was kind of a let down as far as movies went.  Don’t get me wrong, there were some precious gems riddled throughout the year, but they were not many.  Basically I said, that it was a very uncool year with flashes of coolness in regards to films.

Hi Bryan Here…

This UK trailer is far far better than the trailer we got here in the USA.  I don’t know if it is the numerous “balls” references, the anal probing talk, or Sigourney Weaver calling the alien, “Paul” a little prick, but it works and has come one of the most anticipated films for me for next year.  I cannot wait to see this film.  Simon Pegg and Nick Frost again team up and star in what looks to be one hell of a funny film.  Looking forward to it.

Check the trailer out below.

Tintin Pictures Finally Emerge Online!!

by Gumbercules9000 on Nov 1st, 2010

Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson have finally lifted the curtain on the first real pictures of their epic big budget film, Tintin based on the comic.  They chose Empire Online to unveil these pictures.

It seems judging by the pictures that this technology is far superior than what is used on the Zemeckis CG films such as The Polar Express.  Tintin is looking more realistic and less cartoony.

68_ Iron Man – May 2, 2008

Another comic book film.  Iron Man is really really good in pretty much every way.  Robert Downey Jr. is killer in this film as the super-hero and Jeff Bridges is a pretty convincing bad guy.  This film is a lot of fun and full of laughs and action.  Can’t wait for the sequel and Avengers film.  Go Sam Jackson as Nick Fury.

67_ Brick – March 31, 2006

This film is great.  A wonderful homage to the old 30’s noir films.  Set in present time but take the characters and have them talk like they did in the 30’s noir film and a plot and story line likewise.  It is so great.  Tons of twists and turns.  Joseph Gordon Levitt is amazing.  I am proud to have this on the list.  Love this film.

66_ Drag Me To Hell – May 29, 2009

Sam Raimi’s return to the horror genre from his long stint on the Spidey franchise is 100 % AWESOME.  Sadly no Bruce Campbell, but Drag Me To Hell is Evil Dead I & II and Army of Darkness rolled into one film.  Yes it is that great.  This is your standard tale  of a gypsy woman curing a young girl this curse activates a demon to terrorize its victims and DRAG THEM TO HELL.  Good scares and great laughs.  A lot of fun.

65_ Zoolander – September 28, 2001

Ben Stiller is great director and a great character actor.  Tons of quotable lines from this film even today.  A dark comedy in the world of super-models.  I mean in the first five minutes of the film a few super models die in  a gas station fire which they started.  HILARIOUS.  Tons of great cameos and acting all around.  Zoolander will always have a place in my home and heart.   I mean he did found the Zoolander Center For Kids Who Can’t Read Good.

64_ Napoleon Dynamite – June 11, 2004

I saw this film five times before it was initially released wide and I loved every minute of it.  I really cannot tell what time period it is in other than sometime in the vague present, but Napoleon is a kid in high school who is maybe the most awkward kid ever, but he means well.  This is the story of his life in the span of a few weeks.  It is quite hilarious in this dry humor.  This character is one of the cult icons now in history.  The dance number at the end to Canned heat classic.  Love this film.

63_ Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind – March 19, 2004

A gem of a film from Gondry.  This film is fantastic film.  Almost like you are in a dream and nightmare at the same time through out the whole film.  A couple undergo a procedure to erase each other from their memories when their relationship turns sour, but it is only through the process of loss that they discover what they had to begin with.  Truly fantastic.

62_ Ratatouille – June 29, 2007

I really liked this pixar film.  All about the restaurant and food and cooking industry.  So much heart and love is in this film.  It looks beautiful and and the voice acting by Patton Oswalt is wonderful.  Anyone can cook, even a rat.  Love it.

61_ The Departed – October 6, 2006

A really great gangster film from the best gangster director.  That is Marty Scorcesse.  Boston gangs.  All-star cast and tons of twists and references to other mob films.  Leonardo Di Caprio plays an undercover agent in the mob and tries to keep his sanity and wits during the whole time.  What a great film.  Alec Baldwin is hilarious in this film.

60_ Munich – December 23, 2005

A Spielberg film about the true events and revenge of the horrible attack at the Munich Olympic games against the Israel team.  Eric Bana leads the grou to kill one by one the terrorists responsible for the murders.  What an amazing film.  Everything is great about this film except for the last ten minutes which is what to expect from Spielberg films.

59_ Thank You For Smoking – March 17, 2006

I really loved this film.  This about lobbyists in our nation.  Lobbyists for tobacco, guns, and alcohol and how they persuade politicians and important people to keep their industry making large amounts of money.  It is very good and entertaining.  Pretty scary too that this actually goes on.  Great writing and acting all around.

58_ The Hangover – June 5, 2009

Form the director of Old School and Road Trip comes the next film about a crazy Bachelor Party in vegas with strippers, guns, tasers, naked people, Mike Tyson, tigers and much much more.  I believe this film is the highest gross out of any R rated film ever.  It is very funny.  Very funny.  Leslie Chow.

57_ Superbad – August 17, 2007

Oh this great comedy film brought tears of laughter to my face.  Oh so funny.  Jonah Hill and Michael Cera are best friends in their last days of high school who have only really hung out with each other and are invited to  a huge party and are asked to supply the liquor which is the “entire funness” of the party.  This is their journey to accomplish this with their friend McLovin who is a cult icon now too.  This film is great and has most of the Apatow gang in it.  Not only does this film bring the best jokes but it also has a great heart and soul in it as well.  Friendship.

56_ Serenity – September 30, 2005

Man Joss Whedon kicks ass.  His vision of a sci-fi/western world is phenomenal.  This was a television series before a film.  The film is equally awesome as the show was.  I wish more films were like this.  It is entertaining, scary, funny, romantic, and pretty much all the emotions across the board in the span of two hours.  This will entertain you for years to come.  There is a reason all these shirts and posters say Joss Whedon is my Master now.  It is true.

55_ 300 – March 9, 2007

Frank Miller’s brutal Spartan comic became a reality when director Zack Snyder took the helm and adapted it into a movie.  This movies is 99% shot on a green screen with a “crush” technique that gives the film its rustic vintage look.  I was wondering how they were going to turn a 32 page comic book into a whole two hour feature length film, but they did.  And did it well.  I saw a screener of this movie way before its initial release and it was introduced by UFC Champ Chuck Liddell.    Chuck got us all in the mood for a hardcore brutal film about honor and freedom.  The fight scenes were filmed extremely well and has been copied in many other movies after this one.  I am referring to the normal pace to the slow- mo action beats all in one shot.  The use of heavy metal music was an added booster to the balls this movies has.  I really liked this movie.  Very entertaining.

54_ Hot Fuzz – February 14, 2007

The second feature film from BADASS director, Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead), brings us his vision of the ultimate fast paced action thriller in Hot Fuzz.  This film starred the same cast as Shaun of the Dead, and was about the best police officer in London getting re-assigned to a very small quiet village.  The people who live in the village are not what they seem.  This film packs a huge punch of action and gut busting laughs.  The end action sequence lasts about 25 minutes and is balls to the wall AWESOME.  Edgar Wright can do NO wrong.  I saw the U.S. premiere of this film at AFI, and met Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Edgar Wright, and Dolph Lundgren (who introduced the film).  A great film that I will enjoy through the ages and one of the best action films EVER.

John Landis Returns To Direct Burke & Hare

by Gumbercules9000 on Oct 5th, 2010

I have always been a fan of John Landis. He has quite an impressive resume. He has directed such films as: “Animal House”, “Coming To America”, “An American Werewolf in London”, “Michael Jackson’s Thriller”, “Three Amigos”, and “Trading Places” to just name a few.

He is returning to direct a film called “Burke & Hare” which is based on the real life exploits of Irish murderers William Burke and William Hare who killed about 17 people in Edinburgh in the span of 1 year in the 1800’s.

The film’s main stars will be played by Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead) and Andy Serkis (known for playing King Kong and Gollum) as both Williams. They also have one hell of a supporting cast which is: Tim Curry, Isla Fisher, Jessica Hynes, and Tom Wilkinson.

“LOST” Actor Joins Cast of Mission Impossible 4

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 28th, 2010

Josh Halloway who played Sawyer on LOST has joined Tom Cruise and Jeremy Renner for the 4th installment of Mission Impossible.

Filming begins soon in Dubai with Brad Bird directing.  Brad Bird directed Pixar’s The Incredibles and Ratatouille.  It will be interesting to see how he takes on this franchise.  I have faith in him.

Simon Pegg and Ving Rhames will be returning as the IMF team members as well as J.J. Abrams who directed the third film will be taking on the role as producer as well as coming up with the story.



Scott Pilgrim VS. The World Hits DVD & BLURAY in November

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 20th, 2010

USA Today’s Life section had some cool news on the cover.

Scott Pilgrim VS. The World will hit DVD & BLURAY on November 9th (which is my birthday) and will be loaded (hopefully) with tons of cool extras.

The U.K. release of the film on DVD & BLURAY already has some certified extras which will most likely be on the U.S.A release. Some rumored features include: the trailers and teasers for the film, an audio commentary with all the main actors including Micahel Cera, Jason Schwartzman, Brandon Routh, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, and Ellen Wong, plus another audio commentary with Anna Kendrick, Aubrey Plaza, Kieran Culkin, and Mark Webber.

That’s about it for features for the U.K. release.  The commentaries sound cool, but I would like to the studio and tell them on the bluray they release in the U.S.A. please make it a 3 or 4 Disc release.  Disc 1 containing the high-def film plus extras.  The 2nd disc can be for extras to if there are plenty but I will get to that in a minute.  The 3rd disc can be the DVD version and the 4th can be the digital download so I can watch Scott Pilgrim on a plane or train.

So studio, please give a listen please.  I really do not care nor do I think most people care about going online through the blu ray player and watching the film with others or exclusive online content or bookmarking chapters or creating your favorite scenes.  While all that is cool, it is not what I want as an extra on a bluray.

Please, what I would love for this bluray is an in-depth behind the scenes documentary that spans from the graphic novel creation to the audience recation to the opening of the film and everything in between.

I would also like a commentary by the director Edgar Wright with his pals Simon Pegg and Nick Frost even though they had nothing to do with the movie.  Even if it was a shit movie (which it is not by any means), I would purchase the movie for this alone.  In addition to the commentaries, how about making them video commentaries in the vein of MST3K where you can see the shadows of the people giving the commentary and they can point things out on the screen as they are happening.

I want a featurette featuring all the music of the film and band rehearsal footage.  Also I would love a 10 minute gag reel.

Since this is a geek/video game centric movie, how about interviews with the cast and crew talking about their favorite video games and maybe even footage of a video game tournament involving the cast and crew.

Maybe perhaps some hidden easter eggs of some evil exes that “Didn’t make the Final Cut” of the movie and their lame battle scenes?  Could be great.

Some deleted scenes would be great as well.  Also maybe some of the evil exes introducing the special features or talking at you to press a button on the menus of the disc.

I mean this movie is epic and the dvd release must be equally epic.  I loved this film.

I am very much looking forward to this release here in the U.S.A.
