Jumanji (1995) (mini-review++)

(If you’re curious, my review process. It’s also pasted at the end of this post. I don’t believe in Rotten Tomatoes. I just believe in me.)

(***all-purpose SPOILER ALERT*** there may be some in this review)

The mini-review:

Jumanji (1995)

acting 7

directing 6

writing 6

effects 8

editing 6

SW score: 33

2.7 out of 5 octopi

++ It’s an interesting premise but the execution is not. Robin Williams was solid in this movie. And the other actors deliver serviceable but hardly deep performances. The effects are solid but the plot trudges along and everyone knows where it’s going. And it’s nowhere novel.

(1) Shark Wrighter (SW) Score: Based on a sum of 5 sub-scores (acting, directing, writing/story, effects: cinematography &/or animation &/or effects, editing) with 1 being terrible and 10 being terrific.

(2) Octopuses (0-5 šŸ™, with 5 being fantastic and 0 being feces)

(3) Octopuses are my unquantifiable feelingā€¦not that SW score is scientificā€¦but this one is even less so

(4) ++ This optional section includes any incredibly *brilliant observations that don’t fit into simple quantitative slices like the scores and octopuses *(they are likely NOT brilliant)
