(Review) Jumanji: The Next Level

(Review) Jumanji: The Next Level. The second (or maybe first, if we’re relaunching the franchise) Jumanji was one of the few examples of a franchise being rebooted that actually worked. How could you go wrong with heavyweights like Dwayne Johnson, Kevin … Continue reading

Review: Last Christmas (2019)
