Welcome to the news for the week of 19 October 2019. It feels like most of the big news is casting news and that The Matrix 4 is a real thing that is really happening. Sam Raimi is in back and the director’s chair and so is Robert Eggers.
All in all, it’s been a good week! Let’s take a look!

There’s a sentence you’d never predict you’d get to say.
The end credits of 22 Jump Street are hilarious. After an entire movie of meta humour at the expense of sequels we’re treated to title cards from all the crazy ideas that might go into an ongoing franchise. And now thanks to an Imgur user you can see them all. Hooray! Note, this doesn’t spoil the movie proper but some of these are going to be way more hilarious in context. Fair warning.

Some of the funniest jokes in 22 Jump Street, including an entire montage during the end credits, were all the teasing of future sequels. These were all making fun of the notion that the studio would take their success and then run it into the ground by endlessly sequelizing it.
So now the studio is taking that success and starting to endlessly sequelize it.

Last weekend I did in fact see two movies but since I was taking the weekend off I didn’t write them up. It’s a bit late now, so here are some quick impressions in case you’re trying to decide what to see this weekend.

Every time someone makes a movie out of some property from my childhood I pretty much expect it to be a cheap cash in. Call me cynical (I do) but there it is. Fortunately this isn’t always the case and 21 Jump Street is one of the best examples of what a movie version of something from my childhood can be.
Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill both shine in a great story about friendship and dealing with your past which is cleverly written full of meta humour which makes fun of basically every aspect of this kind of film making. Directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller bring their awesome touch as well, the film has great timing and pacing. At the end of the day it’s hilarious and fun and a great addition to your library especially now as the sequel is due in a weeks time.

Thanks and enjoy your weekend!
Two weeks hence will see the release of the sequel to one of my favourite animated movies so naturally this would be a good weekend to pick up a copy of one of my favourite animated movies.
Released in 2010 How To Train Your Dragon is one of the best “boy and his dog” movies that I’ve ever seen. Except the dog happens to be a dragon. And the dragon generally acts like a cat. Hiccup and Toothless become a symbiotic pair and eventually change the world with their friendship. It’s a great movie featuring a great performance from Jay Baruchel, and a fantastic score.
It was nominated for two Oscars (losing Best Animated Feature to Toy Story 3 and Best Score to The Social Network) and won ten Annie Awards including Best Feature.
With a sequel about to be released now is the perfect time to refresh your memory. You can use the links below to buy your copy and help us keep the lights on.
Thanks and enjoy your weekend!

Remember how 21 Jump Street turned out to be smart and hilarious rather than just another by the numbers remake of an 80s property? Looks like the sequel might be good too. Let’s watch!

21 Jump Street was one of the most surprisingly great movies of 2012 so it’s not surprising that a sequel went into production pretty quickly.
Now there’s trailers, and here’s the red band one. Definitely NSFW so put on headphones.

This Is The End is the funniest movie I’ve seen this year. That alone should be enough of a recommendation, really. Here’s what I said in my review back in June:
It’s strange to think that This Is The End is the funniest movie of the year so far. At first glance it looks like a vanity project where Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg just wanted to work with all their friends and then setting that idea against the biblical end of the world. It really feels like it shouldn’t work at all but you know what? It really really does.
To put it succinctly: I haven’t laughed that hard all year.
And I haven’t yet since. This Is The End now available to buy or rent so why not do that this weekend? Full disclosure, if you use the links below (which if you have an ad blocker turned on you may not be able to see) we’ll get a cut of the sale. That cut helps us keep the lights on and the beer fridge stocked though so, you know, please use the links below.
