4K UHD Review: Wonder Woman!

by Gumbercules9000 on Sep 19th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

The Warner Bros./DC Comics Cinematic Universe has been trying to get off its feet for a while now with no success, besides some decent box office money. However, most people would tell you that the new DC Comics‘ films are just not up to par with their rivals over at Marvel for many reasons. These people would be right. Perhaps one of the best moments of Batman v Superman was in fact Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It was just a shame she only had a few minutes of screen time in that film. The rest was mostly trash. Luckily, Warner Bros. and DC Comics decided to finally make a Wonder Woman movie, which is the first superhero film to feature a female superhero as its main protagonist, as well with a female director with Patty Jenkins. The result is satisfying, making Wonder Woman a damn good film with a few flaws.

Film Review: The Transfiguration!

by Gumbercules9000 on Aug 24th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

I’m just in awe at the new indie vampire film ‘The Transfiguration‘. With so many vampire films in so many sub-genres and different interpretations, it’s great to see something so original and heartfelt from first time director Michael O’Shea. I have to think that O’Shea was a big fan of the 1994 film Fresh and had a strong connection to the vampire folklore, because those two ingredients make up The Transfiguration in a new and inventive way.

Film Review #2 – War For The Planet of the Apes!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jul 12th, 2017

Dan M., here….

War For the Planet of the Apes is the best movie I have seen this summer. It is astonishingly well done. Every aspect of this movie *at a minimum* worked. Some of the basic moments and scenes would be considered high points for lesser franchises. There is a ton to spoil in this film but I will not be doing that in this review. Hopefully in a few weeks once people have seen the movie we can discuss the moments that made this movie so damn good in greater detail.

Blu-ray Review: John Wick 2

by Gumbercules9000 on Jun 5th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

THE FILM

Ever since Keanu Reeves jumped into the role of John Wick in 2014, we all have wanted a sequel in the worst way. Filmmakers Chad Stahelski and David Leitch created a monster of a franchise with that film that brought the action genre back to a high point. That first film had a simple story and some of the best action sequences in a long time. Some bad guys steal John Wick’s car and kill his precious puppy dog a few days after his wife dies. Not knowing John Wick is the best assassin in the world, Wick sets out on revenge and literally kills everybody. It was just so good and showed the world what everyone secretly wants to do if some jerk killed your dog. The first film had a modest budget of only $20 million, but ended up making almost $90 million, which leads us to future sequels.

Blu-ray Review: ‘Deadtime Stories’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 6th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here…

THE FILM

I simply can’t get enough of horror anthology films. It’s like getting three or four horror movies all in one. With films like ‘Chillerama‘, ‘Trick R Treat‘, ‘Body Bags‘, and ‘Creepshow‘, we’ve been exposed to a ton of great little horror shorts that have lived in our lives for decades. Some have been good, while others not so good. One thing is for sure though, all have been entertaining and memorable. Back in 1986, when a lot of these horror anthology films were being released, Jeffrey Delman made his own with ‘Deadtime Stories‘.

Film Review: ‘Go North’!

by Gumbercules9000 on Jan 13th, 2017

Hi everyone, Bryan here….

NORTH25

Documentary filmmaker Matt Ogens brings his narrative screenplay to life with ‘Go North‘, which is a post-apocalyptic story with kids. Of course, we’ve seen this genre and story play out time and time again over the past several years with tons of young adult movies that involve kids in a ravaged post apocalyptic scenario. These films all run together, because they are in fact all the same movie with different titles and character names. ‘Go North‘ breaks the mold in one certain aspect, in that it doesn’t take place in a largely dilapidated big city scape in the future with hundreds of millions of dollars going to dumb CGI effects or any big over-the-top action sequences that may involve monsters, robots, zombies, or any combination of the three. Instead, this is a fairly low budget film with none of the above, which is a breath of fresh air in this over-saturated genre.

Film Review: ‘Storks’!!

by Janet White on Sep 23rd, 2016

Hello Everyone, Janet W. here…

storks-baby

 

Addressing the age-old question of where do babies come from is Storks. Although the blessed service once performed by storks has now been discontinued. Hunter (Kelsey Grammer), the BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSS (you’ll get it when you see the film), has converted the stork baby delivery business into a new direction, packages. Junior (Andy Samberg), a high achiever, is up for promotion to BBBBBBOOOOOOOOOSSSSSSSS. One condition looms over his ascension, and it involves a girl named Tulip (Katie Crown, they should have named her Calamity Jane). With this little vixen, Junior’s life will never be the same.

Film Review: ‘Roseanne For President’!

Joel H., Here…

Screen Shot 2016-06-29 at 10.42.40 AM

That laugh. That iconic friggin’ laugh. It’s been awhile. Maybe I’m out of touch with culture, which I don’t think I am, but I have not heard that laugh in so incredibly long. Immediately, I think back to my childhood and the interior of the Connor house, not too far off from my own at the time. The sound of that nasally chuckle takes me back like a song. (*Joel proceeds to smash a Smashmouth record*) Side note on being “taken back”, did anyone else grow up thinking the show “Dinosaurs” was a story-arch/dream-sequence within the Roseanne show? You know, the flannel shirts and all with John Goodman?

Hey guys, Jana here,

american-gods-1

Neil Gaiman is one of those authors that everyone has heard of and most everyone that reads him, likes what they find. I was a little late to the Gaiman party only getting interested in his work in the last few years, the one thing I didn’t read when I began my Gaiman journey was ‘American Gods‘. Oh mon dieu! I corrected the error of my ways after our Editor-in-Chief, Bryan couldn’t believe I hadn’t read it, yet. Ironically, I was putting together an article on books that should be made into film and this was his suggestion.  I spent a weekend with the tome and fell in love and agreement, this book SHOULD have a film counterpart. The universe responded with wish granted.

Rob Zombie has been relatively quiet following the release of the less-than stellar ‘The Lords of Salem‘ in 2012. He’s released his first-ever concert video in 2014 and in February of this year the Zombie came out with a new album, sticking in line with the video, it’s a live record. This doesn’t mean that he’s kept away from the film-world, instead he’s got two projects, both of which are in the early stages at the moment.

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

2015_passes_banner

I can’t believe April is almost here again. It just seemed like two weeks ago we were knee deep in 2014’s Dallas Film Festival, which had some excellent films showcased. But that time of the year is just about to begin and the good folks over at the Dallas Film Festival have announced the first 10 films that will show at the festival. Also, it looks like the fest will be honoring the excellent filmmaker John Landis as well, which is all sorts of cool.
