Now hear this:
Number 1 – In Episode 3 of Sensibly Loud Radio (Math Blaster) J-Mac makes a wild-pitch of an opinion that Jumanji will go down as a classic like the Jimmy Stewart movies of old. Now, B-Eazy likely did not throw this grenade right back at him as he was likely intimidated by sitting down in the flesh with the godfather of Sensibly Loud Media, but I will not be threatened or intimidated by this Charlemagne of a sportswriter. Jumanji is good flick. Tons of fun watching that film growing up (and playing the overly merchandised board game). But James Stewart is a national treasure. Not only was he a legendary actor, but he also legit bombed Nazi Germany.
Here is a list of my top 10 Jimmy Stewart films.
Wonderful Life, Vertigo, Rear Window, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, Man who Shot Liberty Valence, Philadelphia Story, Anatomy of a Murder, The Shop Around the Corner, You Can’t Take it With You, and After the Thin Man. Plus he made Fievel Goes West shortly before he died. Cause this man could do it all.
Number 2 – Upon hearing this plague of an opinion on our fine airwaves, I quickly told J-Mac he was full of it. I then, offhandedly said “Jumanji is great, but I can name 5 Robin Williams movies that are better”
The list follows:
Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Aladin, Good Morning Vietnam, and Hook. In my haste, I added a sixth flick (Death to Smoochy).
To quote Sam, “We all have bad takes – this one just happens to be yours!”
With that in mind, I will concede DTS does not belong next to Good Will Hunting, but the Founder needs step off of Jimmy Stewart, before he targets his B-24 bomb sites on J-Mac’s house.
