JUMANJI (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Starsìììì

Jumanji—one of my favorite films of 1995—makes the classic list. The storyline is fresh, unique, entertaining, and action-packed from the beginning to the end. Special effects are beyond their time. It’s a ‘can watch it more than once’ movie with outstanding cast choices: Adam Hann-Byrd, Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Laura Bell Bundy, Kristen Dunst, and Bradley Pierce.

Storyline

Children find a board game that gives more thrills than throwing the dice and moving around ‘Go’.
