Review: ‘Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie’ is a Nostalgia Trip Done Right

After years of waiting patiently, fans can finally get closure with “Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie.” A thing to know about me is that I am a big “Hey Arnold!” fan. I watched it all the time growing up. I did NOT like the “Hey Arnold!: The Movie” (fair warning I’ll be referring/comparing this a lot throughout) that came out in the early 2000s and can see why it killed off this film for some time. Like my “Trans-Dimensional Turtles” review I think I’ll need to quickly give my thoughts on the “Hey Arnold!” series first so that you can see where I’m coming from.

Review: ‘Jim and Andy’ Peels Back the Layers of Jim Carrey

Andy Kaufman was a weird guy, Jim Carrey is also weird which made him perfect to play him. Netflix has recently created a new documentary about when Jim Carrey portrayed Andy Kaufman in Milos Forman’s “Man on the Moon.” As you hear in the trailer this is taken from behind the scenes footage of the filming. Supposedly the studio did not want the footage released for fear of it painting Carrey as a jerk and hurting business for the film. Now years later we get that along with Jim Carrey’s own musings on his performance.

Review: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Matches the Original

Is “Blade Runner” and robots Halloween enough? Eh, who cares? This came out during October during my Halloween articles and it wasn’t a film I was about to pass up reviewing. Now here’s the thing about this sequel Sony has been very hush-hush on details of the plot, which is good. With that in mind I’ve decided so as not to upset anyone reading I am going to put all of the points about the SPOILER aspects of the story that I want to discuss on a separate page. So if you click on the next page to read the SPOILERS don’t say that I didn’t warn you.

Review: Pennywise Lives in new version of ‘IT’

It hasn’t been a great couple of years for Stephen King adaptations. Which makes me all the happier to announce that “IT” was really good, PENNYWISE LIVES! “IT” is widely considered one of Stephen King’s best (and longest) books. We had a miniseries back in 1990 that gave a generation of kids coulrophobia. However, I’m sorry but aside from Tim Curry it just hasn’t aged well. So let’s see why this adaptation seems to work so much better.
