The pop star’s film career may be blooming, but ex-Jonas Brothers lead Nick is sticking with his 2017 breakout, back for second helpings in December 2019’s untltled sequel to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

That US$962 million monster of a movie is coming back for more in December 2019, with the original film’s quintet joined by a number of new characters.

Maybe it was because it gave a negative vibe about the beloved holiday, most likely brought about by that dark live action film in year 2000 starring a grotesque green Jim Carrey that I did not feel the need to go watch the films about it or read the original book by Dr. Seuss.

Once mainly the purview of drive-ins and cult fandom, horror movies are now decidedly mainstream. But first let’s define “date movie,” which increasingly seems like an outdated concept. To me, the term applies to those films likely to attract both men and women as a safe choice on date night — a term that itself is under revision, for couples who opt to stay home so they can “Netflix and chill.” Date movie and date night in the past often meant … [Read more...] about Is horror the new date movie?
