Ferdinand Trailer

This Christmas season sees an interesting film released in theaters. Ferdinand is an animated film about a bull who is mistaken for a dangerous beast and his  journey to reunite with his family. It hits theaters December 15th.  You can watch the trailer here, Ferdinand trailer. John Cena is no stranger to animation as he voices Ernie the Elephant in the Wonderful Pistachios commercials, he also voices himself in the Flintstones & WWE: Stone Age Smackdown, as well J.C. in Surf’s Up Wavemania. If you’re a fan of John Cena you may enjoy this. Looks like it will be fun for the family. It hits theaters December 15 in the USA.


WCW- The Italian Connection

What can a 1995 Bruno Mattei film made for television movie titled Fauci Crudelli (Cruel Jaws) possibly have to do with World Championship Wrestling? Well it turns out Hulk Hogan’s stand in for the Shadow Warriors movies happens to star in it. Richard Drew played Dag Snerensen in Cruel Jaws, a shameless Italian rip off of Jaws released in 1995. When I first watched this film I became confused. I knew Hulk hadn’t starred in this particular film but who was this man that looked like him? After a bit of searching the web I came to find out that Richard Drew was a Hulk Hogan impersonator. Richard also happened to be slated to do stand in work on Thunder in Paradise, a Hulk Hogan led show about a pair of ex- Navy SEALS and their adventures. Unfortunately, Thunder in Paradise was canceled before that came into fruition. Cruel Jaws is certainly not everyone’s cup of tea, but if you enjoy cheesy films or a fan of Italian rip offs it is a must see.

Rampage Trailer

So by now you’ve probably seen the trailer for the new action movie starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Rampage. If you haven’t check it out here; Rampage (2018)

Rampage posterRampage is supposed to be an adaptation of the popular 1986 Midway Games arcade game of the same name. My first video game console was a Nintendo Entertainment System handed down to me by a cousin when I was 7, along with the system was Rampage. The movie seems to be very loosely based on the game but that’s par for the course with film adaptations of video games. It’s from the director of the “The Rock” fronted film San Andreas which was especially well received by me. I think the monsters look plausible in the trailer and I think we’re in for a fun, meaningless romp through jungles, forests, and cities with some monster mayhem. If you’re a fan of The Rock I’d say give it a shot when it hits theaters. If you’re a fan of giant monster (Kaiju) films I think this will be one you won’t want to miss. I’m definitely looking forward to seeing how it works on the big screen.
