It’s been a minute since I did a movie review so I thought I would share my thoughts on one of 2017’s most anticipated movie releases, Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.
What I liked most about this movie was that they didn’t just try to REMAKE the original Jumanji; it was like a sequel to show the evolution of the game. I also loved that they paid homage to Robin Williams by mentioning Alan Parish’s time stuck in the game.
I thought they did an awesome job with all the little details that really made it seem like they were inside a video game. But it was definitely not the feel good family movie that the original was. They depended more on the comedy, and it was skewed towards an older demographic(the original never would have made penis jokes). There wasn’t as much “heart” but each character still had their little lesson to learn and it definitely had it’s warm moments.
The cast was FANTASTIC! I normally can’t stand Jack Black (with the exception of The Holiday and School Of Rock) but he really did an amazing job of acting like he was a 16 yr old girl stuck in the body of a middle age man without totally over doing it (like he typically does).
Overall, I really enjoyed this movie and would watch it again!
