Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review

 

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is a sequel, or is it a reboot (I’m already confused) that follows a group of young teenagers who find a video game called Jumanji while in detention. Due to how boring and tedious detention is, they boot up Jumanji and begin to pick avatars in the game, then get sucked into the game and from there the adventure continues. Play inside Jumanji, escape bad guys, return precious jewel to statue and wipe away a curse. Nothing we haven’t seen before! But… Continue Reading

IT Review

I first saw the original IT when I was about 11 and thought the first half an hour (that’s all I could bear to watch) was just about the scariest thing I’d ever seen. Skip forward about 6 years and I watched it again with a few friends and we decided that it really didn’t age all that well. Ever since the idea that a remake was in the works, I’ve been onboard because we can finally get a newer version of the classic Stephen King story. IT (2017) still follows the same group of kids that call themselves The Losers Club, who live in the town of Derry, which gets terrorized by a shapeshifting demon every 27 years. The entity known as IT lures children in and then uses their fears to make them scared because kids taste so much better that way! Tastyyy fear…Only this film just focuses on the Losers Club as kids, which is already a plus in my books because it gives the movie enough time to fully flesh out these characters and make you care for them with a run time of over two hours! (The original was three, with both stories!) Which means Part 2 (focusing on The Losers Club as adults) will have room to breathe and to show even more from the 1000+ page book. Continue Reading

Baby Driver Review

Baby Driver follows the story of a young man who goes by the name Baby (above), who got into an accident as a young kid and developed Tinnitus (a ringing in the ear). So, in order to drown it out, he constantly listens to music, even when on the job. He’s a driver for Doc (Kevin Spacey) and helps criminals get away from stealing money, and his music makes him the best driver there is! Continue Reading

Top 5 Films of 2017

 

It’s been the New Year of 2018 for some time now, so I thought I’d share my Top 5 Films of 2017!

1. Baby Driver – It’s been 5 years since ‘The World’s End’ and Edgar Wright’s latest was definitely worth the wait as he’s done it again! Very cool action scenes where the music is in sync with what’s happening on screen. This is how you do a car chase, just let the camera linger on shots to show off some very cool practical stunt work, especially in the beginning scene with the Subaru WRX escaping the cops.
