Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Why I’ve Picked this choice – When the Jumanji sequel got announced not everybody was that interested in seeing after the hugely popular Robin Williams original in the 1990s. we did get a wonderful cast of Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black and Karen Gillan. Even the cast got questioned after the first poster and outfit Gillan was wearing, though everybody promised it would make sense.

When everybody got to see the film, everybody was pleasantly surprised, the film modernised from board game to video game, which took the four into the game to become the adult characters who are different avatars in the game. The story does feel incredibly fresh which does make it stand out from the original. The cast is fantastic with a scene stealing performance from Jack Black, but don’t take anything away from the other three stars who all play into their strength.

For me this was one of the biggest surprised of 2017 and it is one that both pays respect to the original and continues to build on the legacy behind everything we saw first.
