JUNGLE 2 JUNGLE(Encore on Comcast) By-the-numbers moves in this remake of a French comedy about a workaholic commodities-broker father and his wild-child son, transplanted from the rain forest. But it’s warmer and more amiable than the original, thanks to the smiling nice-guy charm of Tim Allen. (PG; runs through Dec. 29)
NATURAL BORN KILLERS(Encore on Comcast) Oliver Stone’s cinematic joyride through the heads of a pair of serial killers - Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis - is unforgettable. They aren’t as warped as tabloid-TV vulture Robert Downey Jr. or sadistic prison warden Tommy Lee Jones. Stone means to indict the media and the justice system, not just the murderers, and does, brilliantly, in a dazzling mix of styles, with the heat turned on high. (R; runs through Dec. 30)
