Welcome to our Win It Wednesday Feature! This week it's all about Jumanji with Jennifer's general thoughts about the original movie. Don't forget to read all the way down to see Melanie's little note - and of course details on how to enter the giveaway to win the Jumanji Prize Pack!
Would you ever play a mysterious game that you just found lying on the ground? Well this movie looks at what could happen if you do and has even raised the question if someone is playing right now to cause 2020! That movie, of course, is Jumanji.
There have been three movies so far, the second 2 following years after the original, but that is what I want to talk about. The original with Robin Williams (and I will leave Mels to talk about the new ones).
The movie starts off with a young boy named Alan Parrish. He finds this game called Jumanji and takes it home. Later that night with his friend Sarah they decide to play the game. He ends up getting stuck in the game. Yikes!!! Move forward several years and that’s when the real story begins.
Two siblings end up moving into the old Parrish house along with their aunt, find the game, and they start playing, releasing Alan who is a lot older now. The plan is to finish the game but it seems to be causing nothing but disaster, it appears this game does not want to end!
Do they finish the game? I already mentioned sequels, so I guess if you haven’t seen it then that’s something you’ll have to find out for yourself! (Or I mean I guess if you read Mels notes that would probably give it away too.)
It’s a gem but I can tell you I would NOT play a mysterious game that I randomly found because you never know what might happen if you do!

Thanks Jenn! I loved the original movie but I have to say I have a soft spot for the new, updated, video game versions. As a gamer myself back in the day I have to say I would 100% be wanting to jump in and play. I love the new take on the original storyline, they really managed to bring everything up to date, and make it relatable for a new generation. Plus the casting is incredible. Anyone who doesn’t laugh at this movie REALLY doesn’t have a sense of humor. If you loved the original, but haven’t given this a shot, I highly recommend it. If you never watched the original, you should watch them all ...... but here's a trailer to Welcome to the Jungle .... because Jack Black!
