Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle exists.
I am neither upset nor pleased by that fact, even after this rewatch. Trust me, based off of the trailers and especially the slanderous hallmarks behind the production of this movie’s division (director Jake Kasadan, Nick Jonas being assigned an ACTUAL role, and possibly sitgmatizing Robin Williams’s legacy!!!) this movie could’ve been a LOT worse. But…it’s unusually, not? It’s culpable, wild, adventurous, role-reversal, cheesy, Crocodile Dundee buffoonery. The delirious paradox of it all however, is that it works, but it also, jointly, doesn’t work. Fin.
Verdict Change: (C+ —> C)
This movie shouldn’t have been titled: Jumanji. Not everything has to be a sequel especially when it’s this loosely connected to the original.
