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.
It’s been eons since the first trailer for Marvel’s most anticipated film, The Avengers: Endgame came out. Oh, by the way, the latest and possibly final entry for The Avengers movies is Endgame. It was kind of a given, considering Doctor Strange’s line in the fight on Titan against Thanos in Infinity War.(more…)
A rumored schism caused a spinoff from the Fast and Furious franchise — or was it the other way around? Either way, the spinoff is well underway with Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham as the titular characters: Hobbs and Shaw. It’s a peculiar pairing, considering one was a cop and the other is a killer.
I try not to hate on remakes since they’ve been a thing for as long as film has been around, but sometimes I can’t help myself. The news a while back about a remake for Men in Black was one of those times. I loved the original as a kid. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones were fantastic. Then, there was also the cartoon that I really liked — I guess that might go a little towards remake territory, but I digress.
