Screamin' Steven Reviews: Jungle Cruise

"If you're lucky enough to have one person in this life to care about, then that's world enough for me." With movie theaters open again, "Jungle Cruise" (which was slated to release last year), comes on the heels of other theme park ride adaptations from Disney like "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "Tomorrowland". After the disappointment of "Tomorrowland", it was surprising that Disney would attempt another theme park ride movie.  "Jungle Cruise" stars Dwayne Johnson, Emily Blunt, Jack Whitehall, Jesse Plemons and the great Paul Giamatti.

Trailer Park: It Came From Beneath the Sea

It has been a long time since I posted a trailer so I decided today would be as good as any to do so.

Today's trailer is the Ray Harryhausen classic It Came From Beneath the Sea.

Released in 1955, the film is about an octopus that attacks San Francisco.

While the effects by Harryhausen are wonderful, the monster never seemed the menacing to me. Maybe it is because I live in the Midwest and would never have to deal with an octopus attacking me or it is the fact that the monster really doesn't do that much. It attacks somethings and climbs the Golden Gate Bridge, but that is about it. I like the film, but the monster is lame. Not The Giant Claw lame, but still pretty lame.

Still give the trailer a look and then watch the film. It is a good film despite having a lame monster.
