The new trailer for Columbia Pictures’ Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle practically explodes with action (and someone actually does explode – whoever heard of cake being a weakness?).

Blu-ray Review: Baywatch Extended Cut – Still Swimming!

Maybe it was just the mood I had going into Baywatch (looking for a laugh or two after a day of packing up to move), but I quite enjoyed it.

The question is, would I feel the same way about the movie without an audience, in my living room? The answer is yes.

Bring the Beach Home In August – Baywatch Comes To Home Video with Extended Version!

The misadventures of the Baywatch team – from grounded leader Mitch to hot dogging Matt; from sympathetic nerd Ronnie to Rommie’s dreamgirl CJ – as they tackle the ‘not quite Bond’ villain Victoria are little short of genius-level silliness (with a dash of drama to keep things from drifting away).

Baywatch is coming to home video on August 15th (digital) and August 29th (Blu-ray and DVD). The Blu-ray and 4K UHD releases include an extended version of the film.

The new take on Jumanji – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – ages up the kids who are about to play the game of their lives – they’re now teens in high school forced together by detention (shades of The Breakfast Club!).

When they are given the task of cleaning out the school’s basement, they stumble onto an old video game called Jumanji and get sucked into it as the avatars they’d chosen to play – but the avatars are not exactly what they thought they’d be (above)…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle opens on December 20th.

Baywatch Swims Just Fine!

Maybe it’s just the mood I had going into Baywatch (looking for a laugh or two after a day of packing up to move), but I quite enjoyed Baywatch.

I only ever watched a couple episodes of the TV series, but the movie seemed to hit every one of the major parts of the show – slo-mo Baywatch babe; overly earnest Mitch Buchanan; plucky comic relief (who’s so quick to melt down when his crush is around that he doesn’t realize that she’s into him from the beginning); totally inappropriate investigation of suspected criminal activity; lots and lots of beautiful beach people.

The Fate Of The Furious Lacks A Not So Little Something!

There’s a Paul Walker-sized hole in the middle of The Fate of the Furious that the creative team and cast try to gloss over with bigger and more ridiculous stunts than ever before.

The addition of Jason Statham’s Deckard Shaw as a member of the team, and Scott Eastwood as Mr. Nobody’s new aide help, but the loss of Walker – whose Brian O’Conner was the series’ real heart – cannot be completely overcome.

Can the unthinkable happen? Will Dom turn on his family?

The Fate of the Furious has a host of returning players, including mysterious CIA guy Mr. Nobody (Kurt Russell) and Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham), along with a lethal lady who is queen of internet crime.

The first trailer is a bit long – at 197 seconds – but like even the longest movie in the series, it feels like half that. Check it out after the break.
