I was surprised by how much I enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, which in turn gave me a false sense of hope for the sequel.

Jumanji: The Next Level is bad in such profoundly misguided ways that I find it really fascinating. Like, there's no way the last act was written by the same person as the first one, because they combine to tell a story whose message is "if you've got a compulsive yearning for something that is definitely bad and dangerous and could kill you and the people you love, go ahead and chase that one last fix, because once you get it, it will solve all your problems."

And that's just one of many baffling decisions this movie makes! Along with "Let's have Jack Black play the black guy" and "Remember how funny Karen Gillan was in the first movie? Let's not give her anything funny to do in this one."

I can't stop thinking about it. This might turn into a blog post.

The best part is, during her flirting scene, she uses her Nebula voice.

So now whenever I'm watching the MCU and Nebula speaks I just giggle.
