How Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle proved doubters wrong

Simon Brew Jan 16, 2018

It's become a surprise commercial and critical hit - so what has the new Jumanji film got right?

Spoilers lie ahead for Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

Over the weekend, I was back at my local multiplex to see the quite wonderful Coco. On the way in, I saw the manager of said picture palace, and we had a bit of a chat. He’s a friendly man, and just the kind of manager you want: always checks that everyone’s okay, is there if anything goes wrong.

He’s also good for a bit of insider chat, too. And we got talking about Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle.

I don’t think I was alone in inwardly sighing when I first learned of a reboot/sequel to Jumanji. I don’t hold massive affection for the original (although I thought Zathura was great), but still enjoyed it.

Press Notes: John Hughes’ The Breakfast Club

Back in June of 2016, a John Hughes phantom page appeared on Criterion’s Web site, which led to many speculating as to what it might mean as far as films entering the Collection. Many thought that a box set would be inevitable, and for a time it seemed like 16 Candles might be the first to get a spine number. Then, in June of 2017, we had our first real tease as to what might be coming: A breakfast club.

Today, the Criterion Collection has released a new definitive edition of the 80s classic, and it features a number of improvements over the previous home video edition, most notably the deleted scenes.

Here are some reviews and links from around the web:

That’s the fictitious Omaha, Nebraska locale where most of Election takes place - its student body of unspeaking extras, for those keeping score of such things, the only indication of non-whiteness in the whole movie. It’s tempting to wonder if the buzzing is the collective gripes of certain Criterion Collection devotees, upset to see “teen comedies” such as this and John HughesThe Breakfast Club infiltrate the brand. But that sound (misguided, for the record) is more of an entitled murmur. It turns out that the...

The brief scene, which is rather low quality, finds the soon-to-be friends communing in the bathroom — or, rather, Claire unsuccessfully attempting to get Allison to open up to her. “I’m sorry, I don’t want to depress you,” she says after commenting on the fact that Allison is eating in there. “Really, I was just reacting to something I consider a little out of the ordinary.
