Image
Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was the last film I was looking for a sequel to, but alas, here we are. It is updated to today's standards and starring The Rock, because you can't have a non-Marvel franchise without Dwayne Johnson. It's the law. Look it up. I wasn't expecting anything when I heard about it. Then the trailer dropped and that looked fun. Then I heard the reaction to it in my post-The-Last-Jedi-haze, so expected a little more.

To be a successful reboot, a new element or angle needs to be brought to it. Take True Grit for example. Both the John Wayne version and the Jeff Bridges version are fantastic, because they bring a lot of different elements to the same story. Bruce Willis stars in a remake of the Charles Bronson film Death Wish. Continue reading to see how it handled the reboot formula.
