While researching a new drug, Dr. Jack Griffin (Claude Rains) stumbles on a potion that can make him invisible. When he reveals his new ability to his old mentor (Henry Travers) and his fiancée (Gloria Stuart), it's clear that a side effect of the potion is insanity. Jack goes on a violent rampage, and the police struggle to hunt him down, unable to see their target, while his mentor and his former partner (William Harrigan) desperately try to devise a plan to capture him.

Encino Man (1992)

Rated PG for mild language and sensuality

[Image: EncinoMan.jpg]


Quote:California teen Dave Morgan (Sean Astin) is digging a pit for a pool in his backyard when he happens upon a caveman frozen in a block of ice. Aided by his goofy friend Stoney (Pauly Shore), Dave transports their discovery to his garage, where the Neanderthal thaws and is revived. When Dave and Stoney find the living and thoroughly bewildered caveman, they attempt to pass him off as a foreign exchange student named Link (Brendan Fraser), resulting in many misadventures.

There's a reason why, whenever '90s kids wax nostalgic over their childhoods, they usually leave out the career of Pauly Shore from the highlight reel. (To quote the Nostalgia Critic, "for those of you who are young and have no idea who Pauly Shore is... good.") This was his first and most successful movie, and while it wasn't as wretched as I'd feared, it's still fair to call it a dud. The big problem with it is that Shore's character is both the most interesting thing about it and the most annoying thing about it; take him out of the movie, and you have the most generic teen comedy you can imagine, but when he's in it, he both hogs the spotlight and acts the part of a grab-bag of early '90s "totally rad" stereotypes. If this is supposedly his best movie, I don't wanna go anywhere near his other ones.

  Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle (2017)

Rated PG-13 for adventure action, suggestive content and some language

[Image: Jumanji_Welcome_to_the_Jungle.png]


Quote:Four high school kids discover an old video game console and are drawn into the game's jungle setting, literally becoming the adult avatars they chose. What they discover is that you don't just play Jumanji -- you must survive it. To beat the game and return to the real world, they'll have to go on the most dangerous adventure of their lives, discover what Alan Parrish left 20 years ago, and change the way they think about themselves - or they'll be stuck in the game forever.

I must say, I actually think I prefer the sequel over the original. Yes, this movie lacks Robin Williams , but it just about makes up for it with an ensemble of four really good actors giving great comic performances sending up their movie star personas, while landing a much better balance between the action, the comedy, and the dramatic scenes. The jokes about video games could've gone a bit deeper (like The Final Girls did with slasher movies), but it was still fun watching the characters employ video game logic to make their way through Jumanji, especially with the fact that the physics of many old video games basically equal superpowers. The only part where it really suffered was when it came to the character of Alex, which felt like a retread of Alan from the first film without much of the depth or substance. Still, as far as willfully cheesy blockbuster action-comedies go, you can't go wrong with this.

  Jumanji (1995)

Jumanji (1995)

Rated PG for menacing fantasy action and some mild language

[Image: Jumanji_poster.jpg]


Quote:When two kids find and play a magical board game, they release a man trapped for decades in it and a host of dangers that can only be stopped by finishing the game.

This movie is an amazing example of how a truly great actor can elevate an otherwise middling film. I'm not sure how many of us would remember this movie if not for Robin Williams, because he was the glue that held it together. It's got really wild swings in mood, the kid characters feel like adults in kid bodies, and the special effects really don't hold up, but Williams was absolutely on top of his game as Alan Parrish, and his performance by itself makes this movie watchable to this day. I also admire how it's darker than a lot of kids' movies tend to be, pulling no punches in how Alan's disappearance affected him and the people around him, even if it didn't fully nail the execution. Overall, I don't think it's just nostalgia speaking; this is a really good movie.
