Jumanji (PG) The title refers to a magical board game: With each roll of the dice, a different species of jungle beast comes tearing through the room. Simulated by the same astonishingly three-dimensional computer technology that was used to create the dinosaurs in Jurassic Park, the animals in Jumanji are far more threatening — quicker, louder, wilder — than real jungle animals. The filmmakers re-create safari beasts with wizardly finesse but can't think of anything to do with them but zap you. The plot is cardboard Spielberg, with Robin Williams, as an adult survivor of Jumanji, spending most of the movie in sheepish domestic-guy mode. C+ -- OG
