Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle! Directed By Jake Kasdan! •What I thought was going to be a complete pile of shit with some very talented actors involved. Actually came out to be an extremely funny adventure film. What a pleasant surprise! •Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle is just simply a great time at the movies. It’s a solid fun flick. •The cast is all terrific! Dwayne Johnson is as charismatic as always, Jack Black steals the show with some hilarious scenes, Karen Gillan was terrific! And although Kevin Hart is literally Kevin Hart in every film, he was energetic and worked in this film as well. •The video-game tidbits they added here were extremely clever. •The action scenes are all well made and entertaining. •Some great amount of charm, heart, and even honors the original film. •My only main negative I had was that the villain was extremely bland and just plain forgettable.
Although an unnecessary sequel. It’s a harmless, fun, and enjoyable film that is one of the more better reboot/sequels we’ve had in recent memory. (I’m talking about you Baywatch)
The Last Temptation of Christ
Released: August 12, 1988
Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Starring: Willem Dafoe, Barbara Hershey and Harvey Keitel
It's 1983 and a $14 million dollar budget is set for Martin Scorsese's epic telling of the life of Jesus: the Last Temptation of Christ. Aidan Quinn is signed on to play Jesus Christ. The film will also feature Sting as Pontus Pilate, Ray Davies as Judas Iscariot and Vanity as Mary Madeline (sound like bad music video yet?). The budget is swelling and the studio is flooded with outraged letters from various religious groups. Paramount bends and decides to shelve to project. Now, it's 1986, and Universal has an interest in developing the film. Scorsese claims he can shoot the film in two months with a $7 million dollar budget. The studio gives the greenlight and the film is recast: Willem Dafoe as Jesus, David Bowie as Pilate, Harvey Keitel as Judas and Barbara Hershey as Mary Magdeline. The film was largely improvised in an effort to meet Scorsese's promised deadline; giving the film it's sense of spaciousness and minimalism. If I HAD to choose a favorite Scorsese film, not called Taxi Driver, it would have to be the Last Temptation of Christ.
The other two were It Happened One Night (1934) and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (1975). Pretty incredible. Thoughts on the Oscar noms this year? Comment below. 👇🏻 --- Must Follow
