I was not a fan of Wolf. Or Bright. Both felt like they needed 10 minutes at the beginning to set them up better.

Shin Kamen Rider is a reimagining of the Kamen Rider series, following a young man turned into a grasshopper/human hybrid. It's very body horror-ish.

Awesome! I've seen it before, but I think it was on VHS.

I first saw Nausicaa when I checked it out from the Disney Cast Center, back when I worked for Disney World as a custodian. And back in 2016 I bought this when I joined the Disney Movie Club (still gotta buy 3 more titles before this September).

Anyway, I've only seen this with the original Japanese audio track so I don't know how well the American cast (which features Alison Lohman, Shia LaBeouf, Patrick Steward, Edward James Olmos, Mark Hamill and the late Tony Jay) compares to the original Japanese cast.

Better than the original. Aside from this the only sequel I've seen is Terminator 3, and it wasn't that good.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

When I first saw this teased I kind of rolled my eyes but the trailers looked fun and the reception was positive and I had free tickets. I really enjoyed it. They went with sequel instead of reboot and while it probably wasn't necessary at all it was still nice. It's a dumb and fun movie but it makes for a great follow-up to the first film and is a fantastic family movie that both kids and adults would enjoy.

There's a lot of legitimately clever video game humor in it as well. If you need a light popcorn flick in your life I highly recommend it.

Watched "Southern Baptist Sissies" last night. It's on Amazon Prime Video and I downloaded it onto my tablet and watched it last night.

It's a 2014 performance of the Del Shores play from 2000, about 4 young gay boys dealing with their sexualities after becoming born-again Christians. There's also a sub-plot about a pair of barflies, one played by Leslie Jordan.

It starts off like a humor-peppered drama that gets more and more heartbreaking as time goes on.

I saw this as well recently and was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed it quite a bit. Like you said just dumb fun. I really didn't care for the original, but I think I might've been a little too old for it to hit right, I'm sure if I was the right age I would've adored it.

I never cared for the original either, but the new one looks fun to me. I mean it's also a great cast.

Did you ever see Central Intelligence? Also great, I'm thinking The Rock + Kevin Hart is comedy gold. Although I think Jack Black steals most of the scenes he is in, in this one.

never saw that, no. The Rock is great, though. And Kevin Hard and Jack Black are both super funny dudes. I also think it's cool to see Karen Gillan in a mainstream movie. I mean Guardians is pretty huge, but I imagine Joe Public has no idea who's under that blue makeup.

One could argue The Phantom Menace had a great cast and look what we got.

I just re-watched Phantom Menace and while it is still terrible, watching it with kids made it more bearable. They find so much joy in things I found annoying, that it's hard for it not to rub off a little.
