Ep. 54 – Lady Bird & Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Ep. 54 – Lady Bird & Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

In this episode, Matt & Joel provide their reviews for the films Lady Bird & Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle synopsis-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.

Lady Bird Synopsis-Marion McPherson, a California nurse, works tirelessly to keep her family afloat after her husband loses his job. She also maintains a turbulent bond with a teenage daughter who is just like her — loving, strong-willed and deeply opinionated.
