JUMANJI: remake this "good" bad movie with ALIENS &/or Predator(s)?
 
JUMANJI is an enjoyable romp. It is a bad movie, lets face it. But its one of those newer movies while bad, is watchable & enjoyable, a "good" bad movie if you will.

That being said, what if you remade Jumanji & substituted the animals in the movie with the ALIENS & that British hunter dude with either a Predator, or if not a Pred, then a Space Jockey.

Unlike the original Jumanji, this time the infinitely irritating Sultan of Schmaltz gets his, either by ALIEN(s), the Pred or an SJ, depending on which 1 gets the British hunter dude's spot in the movie.

What do YOU think of this idea?

I think that some of the most unnecessary fanwank I've ever heard.

Now, would I love to see an Alien Vs. Predaor movie done right? Absolutely. But this weird Jumanji thing? I don't even want to know where this came from.

I enjoyed Zathura enough to buy it. :)

While interesting - it is kind of hard to turn chest-bursting, acid-bleeding, spinal-column-ripping aliens into fodder for a kid's movie.

Maybe you could have a Game, by some very advanced race, that spat Aliens and Predators, or combinations thereof, out at the players, but not Jumanji. Throw in a few Treasures, Guides and Ultimate Rewards, and you've got yourself a Game.

For that kind of thing, see the Niven/Barnes Dream Park novels trilogy.
