Audiences don't go to see a movie like Rampage for things like "logic". They go to see big monsters destroy things, and Rampage certainly delivers on that promise. However, speaking about logic, or lack thereof, in a movie like Rampage can often times be just as fun as the mindless spectacle. So let's have some fun.

Video: When Oscar season rolls around again, it's doubtful that The Rock's winter blockbuster Rampage is going to be a contender for best screenplay. And that's a tragedy, because watching a popular '80s video game character destroy a modern Dave & Buster's arcade is some beautiful, heavy-handed poetry.
Video game movie adaptations have had a rocky history - whether or not they adhere to the fiction of the games their inspired by, or do something totally different and just slap the source material's name on it. But apparently, Rampage director Brad Peyton refused to even sign on if the movie even considered going with the arcade classic's original premise.
Welcome back to the jungle. In an announcement that should surprise no one - considering the fact that Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is closing in on a billion US dollars at the box office - there's a sequel in the works to the comedy reboot starring Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillan.
The formula of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle sounds like it can't miss. Put some big personalities in a gorgeous setting and have them tell funny jokes and perform a lot of action. When those big personalities are played by stars like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, the odds of success are even higher. Jumanji meets those expectations for sure, it just never exceeds them.
The original Jumanji was pretty straightforward -- a boy gets trapped in a jungle board game for 30 years, he and the other players finish the game, and he's sent back in time once they're done. But apparently, there's a whole lot more to this simple tale to be explored in Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle, and we're trying to wrap our heads around what the hell it means.
Every once in a while, Dwayne Johnson takes a break from his eleventy-hundred different projects to remind us that, ostensibly, at some point, there will be a Shazam movie. But every time he does, the future Black Adam makes me wonder a little more if he realises he's chosen to play the villain of the movie.
As Jumanji has started to wrap up production, Dwayne Johnson's continued to bless us with his Instagram. While we're still on the fence about the movie itself, Johnson's on-set pranks against co-star Kevin Hart are a sight to behold. He always looks like he's having way more fun than anyone else.
