Well, it seems we needed to pack our cynicism away, because from initial early screening reactions, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle appears to be a winner.
Was expecting the worst but have to admit the new #Jumanji movie is a lot of fun. I’d even say it is one of the best “video game movies” ever made, maybe under only King of Kong, Scott Pilgrim, Edge of Tomorrow & Wreck It Ralph (none of which are adaptations).
