Clamshell case slight shelf wear, Great art. Movie plays perfect.
After the success of Jurassic Park in 1993, the floodgates opened for digital special effects, and Jumanji is nothing if not a showcase for computer-generated creepiness guaranteed to give young children a nightmare or two. Whether that was the filmmakers' intention is up for debate, since this is a PG-rated adventure revolving around a mysterious board game that unleashes a terrifying jungle world upon its players, including gigantic spiders, huge mosquitoes, a stampede of rhinos, elephants, and every other jungle beast you can imagine. Robin Williams plays a man-child who's been trapped in the world of "Jumanji" for 26 years until he's freed by two kids who've discovered the game and released its parade of dangerous horrors. A chaotic and misguided attempt at family entertainment, the movie does offer a few good laughs, and the effects are frequently impressive, if not entirely convincing to the eye. --Jeff Shannon

Jumanji is just one of those family flicks that you can watch again and again. I remember it scared my younger daughter to death when the rhinos stampede out of the bookcase in the library, but other than that shock, she was all right with it. A strange, dark, adventurous movie. One of the few Kirsten Dunst (Interview With A Vampire being the other) that I can stomach. Williams is Williams, which is funny and a little neurotic. David Alan Grier is hysterical. Jonathan Hyde plays the duel role of Alan's father and the hunter sprung from the game bent on Alan's destruction (hmmmmm, is there a hidden theme there?). Bonnie Hunt plays the mystified, panic-inclined grown up version of Sarah perfectly. Always a pleasure to watch. Looks great on Blu-ray.
When the DVD finally did arrive, the case was cracked. I checked for any scratches on the DVD but it all seemed fine.. until I tried to play it. On 3 different DVD players. The disc won't read, just get an error message on the player and it spits the DVD back out.
