There’s supposed to be a new trailer dropping today for Avengers: Infinity War! But since I’ll be out of the office for most of the morning, followed by a dentist appointment in the afternoon, so I don’t know when I’ll have time to sit down and watch it, let alone share it on the blog! But I’m gonna try!
Until then, here’s the Honest Trailer for the movie Bright!
I really enjoyed Bright and don’t understand why it’s getting so much hate. It’s a pretty cool action movie with fantasy ideas put in the modern day. I’ve always wanted to see more of that premise and I thought Bright pulled it off nicely! I really enjoyed it, so there, universe!
Thor: Ragnarok is a super fun movie! And it’s coming out on DVD soon! What’s that? It’s already out? Even better!
Thank you, Honest Trailers, for being solidly entertaining month in and month out! We’re all waiting for the Black Panther one now when it comes out on DVD.
Now that we’re several months removed from the Justice League movie, I think we can all agree that it was pretty forgettable. I was OK with the film when it came out, and I’m sure I would survive a rewatch. The most important thing is that it’s over and we can giggle about the continuing failures of the DC Cinematic Universe.
This is also a good time to remind everybody that there’s an Aquaman movie coming out at the end of the year! How fancy is that?
Thanks Honest Trailers!
Consider me a believer! I had zero faith in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle when it was either announced or we saw those first trailers. I loved the original, like we all did, and felt a sequel 20 years later was a dumb idea. That never works.
But let me tell you, I went and saw it in the theaters yesterday and that movie is delightful! Make no mistake, it really is just a jungle adventure movie, like I predicted, lacking the unique spirit/concept of the original. But the characters and especially the cast are to die for!
Oh, also, to keep this post Jumanji-related, here’s the Honest Trailer for the original.
Anyway, I’m not going to do a full review for Jumanji: Into the Jungle. I just wanted to share with you all how much fun I had with the movie. Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Kevin Hart make for one of the best ensemble casts I’ve seen all year! None of them is a weak link and they all get more than a few chances to really shine.
The central concept is that they play a bunch of high schoolers sucked into the jungle world of Jumanji. So they’re not just standard action hero characters. They all play insecure teenagers thrust into a crazy situation, each of them struggling with their own flaws while trying to stay calm and impress each other. It works out great!
And I legit teared up during the emotional climax, you all. Not ashamed to say it. They earned that ending!
I went and saw Star Wars: The Last Jedi last night and I liked it well enough. I liked it to the degree that I like all modern Star Wars movies. It’s fun and energetic, with a lot to love. But…I have complaints, and nitpicks, and stuff that just knocks the movie down a couple notches for me. I’ll share all of those next Wednesday in my List of Six review! So stay tuned.
