Jungle Cruise (2021) – Movie Review

Right away, Jungle Cruise throws you off with an altered Magic Kingdom logo underscored with a repeated E-G-B-E-B-G note sequence which suddenly becomes all too familiar once more instrumentation is added.

The Girl on the Train

Set aside every preconceived notion you have about The Girl on the Train being “the next Gone Girl.” Maybe it’s just me, not having read the novel upon which it was based, but I was unexpectedly swept up and captivated by The Girl on the Train’s story and execution.
