Movie Reviews: “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” & “The Post”

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
Rated: PG-13

Sometimes I want to see a complex movie that causes me reevaluate my views, but other times I just want to be entertained. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is the second type of movie-it’s 2 hours of pure fun! 

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jack Black give delightful performances as modern teenagers who are transformed into avatars and trying to escape a video game. Will they escape or are they doomed to a life in Jumanji?

The Post
Rated: PG-13

Based on a true story, Katharine Graham and Ben Bradlee, publisher and editor of the Washington Post, respectively, expose a government cover up involving the Vietnam War.

While I was alive when these events occurred, I was too young to remember any of it, so it was very interesting to me to learn about this part of our country’s history. Especially during this time while the press is under attack, this film provided an important lesson on the necessity of freedom of the press.
