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. With an A-list line up, did this movie succeed? The movie follows Lily Houghton (Blunt) and MacGregor Houghton (Whitehall) who are looking for someone to take them up river in search of "the tears of the sun"  a mythical tree whose petals can cure any illness, heal any injury, and lift any curse .  While this is going on, Prince Joachim (Plemons) and Aguirre (Edgar Ramirez) a

Divorced Dad, The Hit Web Series by Astron-6, Coming to Blu-ray & DVD from Kino Lorber

NEW YORK, NY -- June 18, 2019 -- Kino Lorber announces the Blu-ray and DVD release of DIVORCED DAD, the hit comedy web series from Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6. Directed by Adam Brooks, Matthew Kennedy and Conor Sweeney, DIVORCED DAD originated as a web series and was promptly banned from YouTube upon the release of its brilliant "My Sis" episode. Kino Lorber now presents all five episodes of the series, plus previously unreleased episodes, extended cuts, and a wealth of special features.

DIVORCED DAD becomes available on Blu-ray and DVD June 25, with an SRP of $34.95 for the Blu-ray and $29.95 for the DVD. The Blu-ray and DVD contain the original five episodes:
"Dale," "Fruits of My Labour," "Home Improvements," "My Sis," and "Fitness", two bonus episodes, "Cooking With Dad" and "The Curse of the Pharaoh's Code", alternate footage, audio commentaries, "Merry Christmas from Santa Claus", and Chowboys: An American Folktale (2018, 9 min,), the final film from Astron-6 and an Official Selection of the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.

Inspired by a dream, a newly-single man (Matthew Kennedy) eases the pain of his mid-life crisis by launching a public-access talk show. But no matter how innocuous the topic, each episode devolves into chaos, veering from slapstick comedy into supernatural horror, driving the Divorced Dad ever closer to his emotional breaking point. Produced by the Canadian filmmaking collective Astron-6 (The Editor), DIVORCED DAD is a nostalgic nightmare that toys with the technology of no-budget, '80s video chat shows in a way that relishes, rather than mocks, the outdated conventions of the medium.
