Movies Out Now: Jungle Cruise
Let’s see what Disney fans have to say about the thrill ride that is Jungle Cruise.
I watched #JungleCruise today. @TheRock‘s been saying for two years that it’s inspired by Indiana Jones, Romancing the Stone, and African Queen, and that’s exactly the way it plays. It’s super fun, with lots of heart, and after the first 10 minutes you’ll be locked in. More plz. pic.twitter.com/HXczcwOieA

Disney’s #JungleCruise is no Pirates of the Caribbean, but @TheRock and Emily Blunt manage to hold things together — until they’re blown out of the water by the villanous joy that is Jesse Plemons’s Prince Joachim! pic.twitter.com/uSPailiIHA

I was smitten by #JungleCruise . It’s the gloriously bombastic, throwback blockbuster we’ve been missing for years. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt are a heavenly match. My review via @FreshFictionTV https://t.co/Rtlj79PuPa

After watching #junglecruise now understand why @TheRock wanted Jaume Collet-Serra to direct #BlackAdam. ‘Jungle Cruise’ is such a fun adventure that works for all ages. Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson have fantastic chemistry & it’s loaded with nods to ride. Thumbs way up. pic.twitter.com/Ljf2MqzE5F

Movies Out Now: Old
Fans of M. Night Shyamalan rushed back to theaters with his latest film, Old, grossing nearly 16 million in its opening weekend. The film stars Alex Wolff, Thomasin Mckenzie, Gael Garcia Bernal, Vicky Krieps, and many other familiar faces.
Our own contributing writer Danielle Hurst enjoyed a solo movie date, and loved the premise of the film saying, “The movie was aesthetically beautiful and I was continuously shocked from scene to scene. We all know that M. Night Shyamalan loves a good plot twist, and there is no shortage of surprises in Old.”
People were divided on the movie, but overall fans seemed to love the master of the twist director’s newest film. Let’s see what Twitter thought about Old:
I laughed. I cried. I winced. I applauded one of the best deaths of 2021 (post bread slicer). Shyamalan gives us a thriller that has incredible character work, lush sound design, off kilter camerawork & Abbey Lee being utilized on-screen for the first time in years. #OldTheMovie pic.twitter.com/nODyXrTKkL

M. Night Shyamalan’s Old is a terrifying horror film. It is one that relies on situational horror and atmosphere while showing the consequences of rapid aging. I thought it was great. #OldTheMovie #MNightShyamalan pic.twitter.com/GC56C1KqnH

I know I’m not the most objective party (I actually enjoy The Happening), but no one can deny that @MNightShyamalan has given us unforgettable films and #OldTheMovie is definitely another one for the list. I spent the film tense and stressed waiting for the next thing to go wrong pic.twitter.com/Ze85KNFhoK

Movies Out Now: The Green Knight
The visionary filmmaker David Lowery brings us a new masterpiece, The Green Knight starring Dev Patel, Erin Kellyman, and Alicia Vikander. This film is Dev’s shining moment, and is unlike anything he’s ever done before.
The Green Knight received amazing reviews, and Twitter users had nothing but good things to say.
THE GREEN KNIGHT: holy shit.
i absolutely lost my damn head for David Lowery’s medieval epic, a thoroughly modern film that goes so hard it feels like it must’ve been made 40 years ago. gallop, don’t trot.

#GreenKnight is a bold and visually breathtaking film. David Lowery adapts the poem into a hauntingly beautiful tale of greed. Dev Patel puts on display a beautiful performance to accompany the rich film. Ralph Ineson embodies the Green Knight, a daunting and scary figure pic.twitter.com/T0edEDnyuU
