Jumanji: The Next Level – Film Review

As someone who loved the original 1995 Jumanji, I was not onboard for a remake but then Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle completely won me over. It was pleasantly surprising, entertaining and different and went on to do very well at the box office, so it was no surprise that a sequel was given the go-ahead. I thought the trailer for Jumanji: The Next Level was pants and assumed that it would be some rubbish money-grabbing exercise, but it’s actually very good.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Film Review

 

I am a HUGE fan of the 1995 Jumanji, it is one of my childhood favourites and makes me incredibly nostalgic, so I was both annoyed and upset when they announced this sequel because I didn’t want them to ruin it. I went into this with a seriously critical eye, wanting to hate it with a passion, but I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining it was.

Goosebumps: Film Review

goose1

I loved the Goosebumps books and TV series so I was convinced this film adaptation was going to be terrible – Jack Black hasn’t exactly had the greatest run in movies lately and the promos didn’t have the same feel as a Goosebumps story. But I was totally wrong – I really enjoyed this and I think it will introduce the franchise to a whole new generation.

W magazine makes more celebs look like crap!

kristen2

Now, if you’ve been following my rant about W magazine since they made Emma Stone look awful (see here), you will appreciate this post. In the same issue, they made Kristen Stewart look like a druggie (see here), but now they’ve outdone themselves by doing a shoot of actors for a “best performances” feature.

In the feature, over thirty celebs pose for the magazine as it is celebrating their performance in a recent film. They are like the Emma and Kristen ones in that they are not glamorous and are uncomfortably normal.

The photographer, Juergen Teller prefers natural and raw photographs with no editing afterwards. It is a bold move and a refreshing choice except that the stars look worse than usual. They aren’t even wearing make-up so they just look like shit. Although, doing it this way, you can see who is a natural beauty- Keira Knightley and Jessica Chastain for example.

There a lot of pictures to choose from so I’ll just post the highlights here. If you want to see the full set of shots, click here.

Don’t you just think they are the weirdest and most random set of shots?! Not only are the celebs not looking their best but the settings are a bit strange too. The Javier Bardem and the Ben Whishaw stand out as odd. Why did Marion Cotillard say yes to being pictured fresh out the shower?! It is just so bizarre.
