Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle movie review: jungle feeble

MaryAnn’s quick take… Culturally clueless cinematic vomit, a cynical undertaking embracing the most diminishing clichés it can apply to its characters. Low stakes, and low humor. I’m “biast” (pro): big fan of Dwayne Johnson, occasion fan of Jack Black

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

More than 20 years after 1995’s Jumanji — the family adventure film about a couple of kids who get sucked into an ancient board game and have to play it to completion to escape — the sequel has arrived… and this time, it’s all about hapless teens who get sucked into a videogame and have to play it to completion to escape. Was anyone demanding a second go at Jumanji? Zathura, the 2005 “spiritual sequel” — which, to be fair, does sound more like marketing baloney than anything else — was a flop. And, to be “fair” to Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,

There's a Petition For Disney To Remove Star Wars: The Last Jedi From the Official Canon

"This is not going to end the way you think." 

The latest chapter in the Star Wars Saga is already off to an impressive opening weekend at the box office, becoming the fourth film in domestic box office history to make over $200 million in its first weekend. But despite the financial success, Star Wars: The Last Jedi is causing a "disturbance in the force" among Star Wars fans. Fans seem to be polarized on their opinions of Rian Johnson's follow up to 2015's The Force Awakens. Currently The Last Jedi has the lowest audience rating (57%) of any Star Wars film on Rotten Tomatoes, which is a bit shocking considering its rating is worse than All of the prequel films. 

The Force Awakens had a different kind of uproar, in that a lot of fans knocked Episode VII for being "too much of the same" or a just soft remake of A New Hope.

J.J. Abrams Has Pitched Star Wars 9 Story to Lucasfilm

J.J. Abrams Has Pitched Star Wars 9 Story to Lucasfilm
J.J. Abrams just pitched Star Wars 9 to the top brass at Disney. With the recent announcement that Disney is purchasing most of 21st Century Fox, Disney CEO Bob Iger has extended through 2021, so he's still the man that the biggest of big decisions need to go through. Star Wars is pretty much the biggest franchise ever, so it makes sense that Abrams, despite his very good track record, would need to pitch the story to Iger directly.

The news of J.J. Abrams' pitch came out as a result of this Disney/Fox merger. While tracking updates, via conference calls that have been made to answer the great many questions people have, it was revealed that Abrams was set to pitch the story to Bob Iger on the morning of December 15, which just so happens to be the day that Star Wars: The Last Jedi arrived in theaters. What went on in that pitch room?

Jennifer Morrison’s Directorial Debut “Sun Dogs” Goes to Netflix

Sun Dogs

“Once Upon a Time” star Jennifer Morrison has found a home for her feature directorial debut. Deadline reports that Netflix snagged the rights to “Sun Dogs,” a drama about a man who is intellectually limited from an accident at birth. After his fourth failed attempt to join the Marines, Ned (Michael Angarano, “I’m Dying Up Here”) teams up with a runaway Tally (Melissa Benoist, “Supergirl”) in an effort to “protect the homefront” by snooping on a casino manager whom he suspects may be a terrorist. Allison Janney co-stars.

“The film sheds light on the idea that every person needs a purpose,” Morrison told us. “I believe that we are all misfits in one way or another. We feel misunderstood. We fail. We struggle. We hope. It’s what makes us unique in our search for meaning.” She explained, “In my mind, Ned Chipley is a mirror for us all.

Matt Damon Slams Harvey Weinstein But Says Louis C.K. Can Be Forgiven in Controversial Interview
Matt Damon has drawn some criticism for saying the recent wave of sexual misconduct allegations don’t all cary the same weight.

“I think it’s wonderful that women are feeling empowered to tell their stories and it’s totally necessary,” Damon, 47, explained in a preview clip of an upcoming edition of ABC’s Popcorn with Peter Travers released Thursday. “I do believe there’s a spectrum of behavior… There’s a difference between patting someone on the butt and rape or child molestation, right? Both of those behaviors need to be confronted and eradicated without question, but they shouldn’t be conflated.

‘Black Mirror’ Is Coming True at a Chinese Company That Rates People’s ‘Social Credit’

‘Black Mirror’ Is Coming True at a Chinese Company That Rates People’s ‘Social Credit’
In yet another case of life imitating art, a Chinese “super app” called Alipay is now assigning users a three-digit score that works as “credit for everything in your life.” Known as Zhima Credit, it ranges between 350 and 950 and is meant to assess people’s worth on a wide-ranging scale — not unlike what we saw in “Nosedive,” the first episode of “Black Mirror” season three. Wired has a lengthy writeup on Zhima Credit, a project of the company Ant Financial meant to serve as a “credit system that covers the whole society.”

“Zhima Credit is the embodiment of personal credit,” reads the signup text. “It uses big data to conduct an objective assessment. The higher the score, the better your credit.”
