Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)

Mild, mild spoilers ahead…. I was scared they’d somehow screw up the sequel to the “reboot” they did, but I was greatly surprise at the new elements they added: the grandpa’s subplot and the way it was executed and their contribution to the jumanji gaming experience (they were both hilarious); and all the new additions felt exactly how a sequel to a 90s sequel game … Continue reading Jumanji: The Next Level (2019)

His character development skills, however, show unexpected signs of … Continue reading The Green Inferno (2013)

Cinderella and the Secret Prince (2018)

When I started to watch this animation, I didn’t have that much high hope. I thought it was just another nonsense story and the animation would be just fine because it wasn’t from Disney, DreamWorks or such American big animation companies. But within five minutes, I realised that I was wrong. This animation is a remake version of the famous Cinderella story. But it’s really … Continue reading Cinderella and the Secret Prince (2018)
