Stephen King is first to confirm “Dark Tower” casting… Idris Elba is Roland the Gunslinger, Matt McConaughey is “Man in Black”…


Stephen King himself is the first to exclusively report official casting for Ron Howard’s “Dark Tower” movie. Idris Elba has been confirmed to play Roland Gilead aka “The Gunslinger” and Matthew McConaughey has been signed to play The Man In Black which is the main villain for the series.

So does that mean that McConaughey is Randall Flagg? Because that’s who the Man in Black is. That could also mean that McConaughey will also be playing Randall Flag for the new “Stand” movie that’s gonna be in the works soon. So McConaughey will be playing Randall Flagg in both “The Stand” and “The Dark Tower” it’s looking like which is cool. McConaughey is a very talented actor and he can play anything. I know McConaughey can play a great villain ’cause he was a villain in the film “Killer Joe” which he was brilliant at.

I don’t know about Idris Elba playing Roland though ’cause Roland wasn’t a black character. Look at the “Dark Tower” comics by Marvel, Roland was a white dude, not black. That’s gonna confuse a lot of people for sure.

They need to cast someone for Jake too. They won’t cast anyone for Eddie & Susannah ’cause they don’t appear until “The Drawing of Three” which was the second novel so Eddie & Susannah will be in the sequel.


I’m still blown away by the “Interstellar” movie… it really was amazing…

Could Christopher Nolan finally win his first “Best Picture” for his sci-fi epic, “Interstellar”??? I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see. The Academy have never been all that friendly with sci-fi movies over the years with the Oscars. There were several sci-fi movies that got nominated for Best Picture such as “Gravity”, “Inception”, “District 9”, “Avatar”, “E.T.”, “A Clockwork Orange”, “Her”, and the original “Star Wars” movie. Yes, they all got Oscar nominated for Best Picture but of course, none of them got the win. So technically a sci-fi film never won a Best Picture nod before.

Could the Oscars this year make history and give their first sci-fi Best Picture win to “Interstellar”??? Like I said we’ll have to wait and see. I can see “Interstellar” winning for other categories such as Best original screenplay, best sound, best musical score, best cinematography, etc.

I also forgot to mention in my “Interstellar” review that the score to the film was killer. I’ve been impressed with Hans Zimmer as of late. He’s the best musical composer for movies today, in my opinion. I think I’m gonna end up buying the soundtrack for “Interstellar” pretty soon.

I would like to see it in theater again but the new “Hunger Games: Mockingjay” is coming out in a few weeks so I’m probably gonna see that instead. “Interstellar” really was a mind blowing masterpiece.

I’ve followed Christopher Nolan’s movies for years. The man’s a fucking genius for sure. Christopher Nolan is smart and honest. He knows what he wants. He’s very good at trying to get from what he sees in his head to the screen.

I think there’s gonna be a sequel to “Interstellar”, though ’cause the ending kind of left open for another movie. Could “Interstellar” end up being a trilogy of some sorts???

You should really go see the movie before it stops playing. It’s a long one but worth sticking through, trust me. So far, this is the best movie of 2014.


Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” trailer arrives online!!!

When Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar” was first announced last year, I’m sure everybody expected it to be a dark & scary sci-fi with impressive visual effects and CGI and stuff — kind of like Ridley Scott’s “Prometheus” — turns out that “Interstellar” looks to be a more realistic space movie. “Interstellar” looks interesting to me so I’m looking forward to it. It has a large cast of big name actors.




Reports: Matthew McConaughey, is game for Christopher Nolan’s “Interstellar”!!!

As soon as Christopher Nolan announced a release date for his next sci-fi movie, “Interstellar”, his first interest to play the leading role was actor, Matthew McConaughey. Nolan wasted no time to get into negotiations with McConaughey, and it seems that the actor is definitely game to starring the leading ’cause he just confirmed it. McConaughey, is officially set for the lead.

Still no plot details and no information on what character, McConaughey, will be playing. Even though, that there is no plot or synopsis, you can get the hint with the title, “Interstellar”. What is “interstellar”? It’s a location of travelling among the stars, like the Milky Way for example. So, it’s definitely gonna be a space travel kind of movie!

I sure hope the story will be interesting, and I hope the plot will have nothing to do with evil aliens and other space monsters. We’ve had enough of those.

See the story, here.

Next, we should see who gets the big female lead, and other supporting characters. We should expect another big movie, full of big name actors.



Report: Christopher Nolan interested in Matthew McConaughey for, “Interstellar”???

Christopher Nolan, seems to be already on the move to his next movie, “Interstellar”, a sci-fi film, and look like he wants Matthew McConaughey to play the leading role. No deal yet, Nolan just asked him. What is it with Nolan’s obsession with big name actors in his films? Still no plot details for “Interstellar”, yet, but you probably won’t be hearing of a plot synopsis for a while ’cause like always Nolan is also obsessed with secrecy. He likes to keep everything quiet until the actual movie comes out. Matthew is a talented actor, though, he’s one of the best in the industry. I like Matt’s southern accent. His speaking voice is cool.

Deadline reports.


The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #21: Frailty

I’m a day late on this ’cause I had a busy weekend. I was gone most of the day yesterday on Sunday. So here’s the next one called, “Frailty”, starring and directed by, Bill Paxton. It also stars Matthew McConaughey. It’s about this guy who confesses to an FBI agent about his father’s religion, which lead him to kill people believing that they were demons. Mathew’s character, Fenton Meiks, tells the story about his father’s serial killer past. This was one of my favorite films of the early 2000’s years. This movie was very dark and also kind of creepy. Bill Paxton’s acting is what made this film work. It’s a really good flick all around, and one of my favorite’s to watch around Halloween season.


Cool Video: Here’s the trailer for William Friedkin’s, “Killer Joe”, looks like a badass film too!!!

Look like Matthew McConaughey is playing the badguy in this movie. The film also stars Emille Hirsh and Gina Gershon. This film looks pretty cool as well. It’s an independent film so it won’t be shown in that many theaters when it’s released. I will see it when it arrives on DVD/BluRay though. I didn’t even know Friedkin was still alive and still directing, kidding. Enjoy!


Netflix Pick (DVD): The Lincoln Lawyer

I know I stopped reviewing movies from Netflix for a while. I’ve still been renting movies from Netflix and streaming them, it’s just that I haven’t been seeing anything good lately. Finally, I saw something really good, something that I actually liked.

Last night, I finally got around to watching, “The Lincoln Lawyer”. A courtroom drama movie, starring Matthew McConaughey. The film also stars Marisa Tomei, Ryan Phillipe, and William H. Macy.

The story tells of a young rich playboy named Louis Roulet, (played by Ryan Phillipe) who is accused of raping and beating a prostitute. Matthew’s character, Mickey Haller, is a self defense attorney who has nothing but his car (which is a Lincoln), he has his own driver, and Mickey is also a member of a biker gang. Mickey is hired to help defend Louis in trial. Louis claims that the woman is trying to take money from him and set him up, but as new evidence starts to pile in, Mickey began to grow suspicious that Louis isn’t telling him everything.

If you’re a fan of legal drama and court room stories, you would definitely enjoy this movie. I sure did. This was a really good performance by Matthew McConaughey. I was never that big of a fan of the guy until I saw him in this movie. He just got a little more respect. His acting was really good, that makes you wish that this guy was a real life lawyer. William H. Macy wasn’t in the movie that much, pretty much a cameo appearance but his acting was really good too, as usual.

This is not an action movie even though the trailers tried to make it look like one. It’s a strictly drama film, but a real good one. It was pretty suspenseful, it kept you guessing toward the end. You’ll be hooked with the story right from the start. If you’re looking for a good film to watch on the weekend, buy this or rent it.


Report: Paparazzi vs. The Surfers at Malibu beach…

Actor Matthew McConaughey was the only celebrity beach surfer at Malibu beach, he was surfing alone out in the ocean. Yep, you guess it, at least 10 paparazzi were there taking pics of Matthew surfing. However, a whole gang of surfers didn’t like it.

The paparazzi hanging at Malibu beach were thrown out by the surfers. The surfers came over ordering the paps to leave area, of course, the paps refuse. They fight and argue for a few minutes, then a brutal fight broke out. The paps immediately gave up and left while the Surfers kept laughing and making fun of them as they walk away.

I’m sure the surfers know it’s a free country so anyone is welcome on the beach, I think the surfers were trying to defend and stick up for Matthew. The surfers hate the paparazzi just as much as the celebrities do, so the surfers decided to do something about it to respect Matthew’s privacy.

TMZ reports and see the video for all the action at Malibu:



The paps got what they deserved! The surfers did a great thing. They did it to respect a celeb’s privacy like I said above.

If I was there, I would have joined in on the action!
