I’m back with another review but this time its on the 3rd and final movie of the Pitch Perfect franchise. This movie had excellent music but also some surprising things as well. So be sure to watch my entire review to see what I thought of it.
I come out with new videos every Monday, Wednesday, & Saturday. So if your enjoying my content be sure to subscribe and click the bell icon to be notified of when my new videos release!
So on December 20th the new Jumanji movie came out starring Dwayne “the rock” Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, and Bobby Cannavale.
Jumanji Welcome to the Jungle is about four high school kids name Spencer, Fridge, Bethany, and Marsha who get sucked into a video named Jumanji and have to beat the game in order to get out. The four kids end up getting sucked into the game through getting put into detention through various different ways that are revealed at the beginning of the film.
One thing in particular though that happens is that its starts off very much like the original where one person gets sucked into the game in 1996 and then goes forward to present time with the four main character kids getting sucked into the game. This was pretty well done since you got to see how the Jumanji board game became a video game.
The movie also did pay homage to the original with the mention of the name Alan Parrish which was the name of the character that Robin Williams played in the original. This was awesome to see since it showed them paying respect for not just the original film but also the actor that played that character.
The movies was hilariously funny and kept me laughing from beginning to end. Also it’s considered a standalone sequel so if you taking someone who hasn’t seen the previous Jumanji they don’t have to worry about not being able to understand what’s going on.
Also if you are taking kids to see this movie it does have a bit of harsh language at times and there is some sexual humor. But I definitely give this movie two thumbs up.
So comment down below if you have seen this movie or if you plan to see this movie! Also let me know what you think of this review!
So like I promise I have a review on the Battle Royale movie. I can honestly say that I liked it. Although there were a few things that I didn’t like.
Like many movies that were based off books there were some stark differences such as characters names, the chronological order of events, and some things being taken out altogether. The one part that I didn’t like about the movie was how there seems to be where the teacher had a crush on Noriko which I just found weird especially since that was in no way hinted in the book. It was a good shocker to the movie but it left me feeling slightly uncomfortable.
That kind of thing actually really bugs me especially when the book is so detailed and brings you in so much.
But anyways, the movie is also subtitles but regardless it was still enjoyable to watch. Also the main character was really noticeable to me because he also played Light Yagami in the live action version of Death Note. That also brings me to the acting in the movie which was good. For this being a group of kids in the movie they honestly handled it well and many of them looked like the characters as well.
I feel like this was a movie that you could definitely see without reading the book but the book would give you a better insight as to what actually happened and how it all happened.
One surprising thing about this movie was that the ending actually made me sad. When the music started and it showed the class picture it made me kind of want to cry to think that all these kids are now dead when they used to be so close.
Now as far as Battle Royale 2 is concerned don’t even watch it. It was such a terrible movie that I actually didn’t finish watching it. I think they had the right idea to the concept but they just didn’t execute it properly. To me it made no sense and I had no idea what was going on.
In all honesty if you haven’t seen the movie definitely watch it because it is a really good movie and if your able to also read the book and decide for yourself which you like better. Also this movie is quite violent so you have been warned!
So let me know what you thought of the Battle Royale movie and this review down below. Plus like always I will answer back to your comments.
