jumanji. it serves as a sequel. it pays homage to robin williams brilliant performance and the first was one of the my favorite moves of all time, the new film is completely a different take on the story that exists in the same universe, which is why it serves more as a sequel to that because they refer back to robin william's character, it opens as four teenagers in detention who find an old video game console with the game jumanji. they get sucked in the game and become the characters they were playing in the game. this creates a lot of comedy considering jack black's character is actually a teenager girl. jack black steals the film. the chemistry is great and the concept is clever especially if you're a video game fan, the rock is fantastic.

performance was kevin hart. it's entertaining and worth seeing i gave it a 3.5 out of five worth seeing, next is steven spiel berg's the post which tells the "washington post" publishing the pentagon papers in the early 70's, tom hanks and meryl streep absolutely fantastic and spiel berg began sheeting this movie in the end of may of this year and it's coming out. it's incredible. the timeliness of this film as well as how he did his signature style and quality in that short of a period of time. the film is masterly shot on 35 millimeter film and balances out where you even find yourself wondering what's going to happen? that is the key to a great story teller, you get so suspended in disbelief you forget what you already know about the story. that's amazing i gave the movie a 4.5 out of ve

2017. next is the greatest show man starring hugh jack man, it's about p t barn am a. the music and the sound track i found to be a better quantity element than the movie itself and the film is one of the best sound tracks i've heard in years. all the performances are amazing. jackman, i felt the film's pacing was off and way too rushed and i didn't find myself focused on a particular story line, also the lip sink for the songs pull lid me out of the movie at times,000 i gave it a three out of five. great sound tracking decent film. also i saw pitch perfect three. i liked it but didn't love it. the first one is still the best but i enjoyed spending time with these characters again. the third film though i felt was a little bit unnecessary if you want to spend time you'll find it to be a decent film not great. the first one still the best. you can find my reviews at kevin mccarthy tv on
