This is satisfying after two months of John trashing it.

First Goosebumps, then Ghostbusters, then Jumanji, now Peter Rabbit.  What will be the next Sony film that's a reboot/adaptation of something popular from people's childhoods that gets surprisingly decent reviews after John trashes it?

Yes, how dare I think a movie looks terrible.

Except Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was actually... you know... good.

Whereas Goosebumps is a mediocre comedy that throws classic characters and stories at the screen without understanding what made them work in the first place, and Ghostbusters is a terribly unfunny CGI eyesore that not only also doesn't understand what made its original source material work in the first place but reduces it to a cheap, attention-craving publicity stunt.

At least with Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, I got a sense that the people involved actually bothered making an honest effort to respect the original while still doing fresh things with the material. And in regards to the trailers for that film, I didn't care for them, but they made the film look mediocre, whereas the trailers for Goosebumps, Ghostbusters, or Peter Rabbit made them look godawful.

I will preemptively deem it superior to Paddington 2.

Careful, John. This is a wholesome discussion about a children's film. Don't damage our reputation as a good Christian movie discussion site.
