Admittedly, I wasn’t aware of another Star Trek television show in the works until Comic-Con this year.

I won’t lie that it felt a little odd that Jumanji was getting a sequel years after the original. Then Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle came out and made me forget that I thought that. It was a fantastic sequel that wasn’t afraid of what it was. It took the premise and modernized it in a fun way, while still showing love for the original. Then a third movie was announced.
Okay, maybe I’m way behind on that.
If there’s one thing sorely missing from Blu-ray commercials, it’s having one of the actors in-character to convince you to buy the movie. For instance, what if the T-1000 vaguely threatened you to purchase Terminator 2: Judgement Day? I know; me too; just typing it had me reaching for my wallet.
