MOVIE REVIEW
“BLACK CHRISTMAS”
Rated PG-13. At AMC Loews Boston Common and South Bay Center, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters.
Grade: D

Rated PG-13. At AMC Loews Boston Common, Showplace Icon, Regal Fenway Stadium and suburban theaters.
Grade: C
To describe “Jumanji: The Next Level” as a film about a videogame is redundant. Almost all action-adventure type films are like, if not based on, videogames these days. “Jumanji: The Next Level” is also a sequel to the 2017 hit “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” featuring Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan and Jack Black. That film was a sequel to the original “Jumanji” (1995), starring Robin Williams and based on the book by Chris Van...
