A new group of teens has to experience the threatening world of Jumanji only now, it’s not a board game anymore. Only 30+ year olds play those things, right? The game magically transforms itself into a video game instead and quite honestly, you’ll be glad it did. Once sucked into the game, the teens find themselves transformed into different people: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillan, and they have to figure out their strengths and weaknesses to survive the game’s perils, as well as the mustache-twirling villainy of Bobby Cannavale. But will teens as different as they all are figure out how to relate to each other? Basically, if The Breakfast Club got sucked through a wormhole into an alternate universe and became badasses (well, some of them), you’ll be VERY surprised to hear what Chris, Michael, JC, and Lara have to say about this movie.
Written by Chris Cox
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
