Starring Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black and Karen Gillan, I found Jumanji – Welcome To The jungle to be OK. It’s just the kind of silly fun that kids will likely love most. It’s well modernised and there were some amusing moments, especially courtesy of Jack Black’s portrayal of a teenage girl and Kevin Hart’s one-liners.
The reason that Jumanji is OK and not great is because by the end, I felt as though something was missing from the movie. Perhaps it’s substance, heart, character development or a mixture and then some, but for me, the amusing and clever moments aside, something is definitely missing at the very core. It doesn’t help that I wasn’t wholly convinced of Nick Jonas’s acting skills.
As I watched the film, the jungle setting did have me reminiscing about how much fun I had while watching Kong Skull Island (2017). Overall, I say watch Jumanji –Welcome To The Jungle if you’re curious enough. It may just be the kind of silly fun you need.
The House With A Clock In Its Walls, features a clock with the power to bring about the end of the world – and young orphan Lewis Barnavelt must aid his magical uncle in locating it.
Directed by Eli Roth, Cate Blanchett, Jack Black, Renée Elise Goldsberry and Braxton Bjerken are among the stars…
Knowing that Jack Black would be in this movie meant that the trailer had my attention. But, a trailer having my attention is not much compared to how exited I am when said trailer surprises me with the fact that ‘acting queen’ Cate Blanchett is a key cast member. The last time this happened, I was watching the trailer for Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella (2015) – the reason why Cinderella is officially my favourite Disney movie.
Besides Blanchett and Black, I’m in for the mystery and magic.
Kyle MacLachlan, Lorenza Izzo, Colleen Camp, Perla Middleton and Braxton Bjerken also star.
Jack Black, Jenny Slate and Vanessa Bayer are the stars of The Polka King; the true story of a local Pennsylvania polka legend called Jan Lewan.
Written / directed by Maya Forbes and Wallace Wolodarsky, the story focuses on Lewan’s development of a get rich plan that shocked his fans and landed him in jail…
I haven’t seen Jack Black in a movie for ages so I’m really glad he’s back because his energy is a thing of beauty. Looking forward to watching this one because of Mr. Black, of course and for the humour I’m expecting.
Jason Schwartzman, J.B. Smoove and Jacki Weaver also star.
Four teenagers are sucked into Jumanji‘s world – pitted against rhinos, black mambas and an endless variety of jungle traps and puzzles. They must beat the game to return to Planet Earth with their lives. Directed by Jake Kasden, the stars of Jumanji– Welcome To The Jungle are Kevin Hart, Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Karen Gillan…
All I remember about Robin Williams’ Jumanji (1995) is that the characters sported khaki attire and ran away from stuff in the jungle. This trailer looks very promising and I’m most excited about the humour.
I’m certain that most people, especially children will find Kung Fu Panda 3very entertaining indeed.
Just as I’m sure that the movie has a lovely message about fulfilling your destiny, doing the right thing, family, friendship, etc. I for one watched Kung Fu Panda 3 in the most part for the humour. The story is definitely good too but mostly, the cuteness of the animals was my biggest draw – and on that basis the movie delivered.
Bryan Cranston’s Li voice and the ‘egg laying out of fear’ joke / sequence are definite highlights.
Watch it for the reasons above and because it’s actually good.
Jack Black, Dustin Hoffman, Angelina Jolie, J.K. Simmons Seth Rogen, Jackie Chan and Lucy Liu are among the rest of the key cast.
Just when I thought I’d have to wait until the next Minion movie for a serious overload of cuteness…
I’ve seen pandas in real life and let me say, yes they are very cute but pandas can also be incredibly boring! Sitting around and eating bamboo all day long. So… thank heavens for overactive imaginations – the result of which, in this case is the above really fun trailer for Kung Fu Panda 3.
I love that the Kung Fu Panda movies are about finding your true self as well as being funny and cute – something I’m always happy to get more of.
Jack Black, Lucy Liu, Angelina Jolie, Jackie Chan, Brian Cranston and Dustin Hoffman are providing just some of the key voices.
