A couple of years ago, news emerged that Sony Pictures was involved in a remake of the 90's classic Jumanji. But now Sony Pictures has been hacked (again) exposing all kinds of sensitive information. Is an update on that Jumanji remake hidden in there somewhere? Maybe—but the original is all I ever want to watch.

In case you've forgotten in the two decades since it hit theaters, Jumanji is the Robin Williams movie about a safari-themed board game that causes real safari animals to appear in the real world. It's harrowing but also hilarious. A remake of Jumanji is obvious enough since the world can't get enough of the 90s these days. But it's like remaking Blade Runner: What's the point when the original is so undeniably awesome? [Netflix, Amazon, iTunes]

I'm embarrassed to admit that it wasn't until about a week ago that I realized that Jumanji was first a children's book. Beautiful artwork.
