When I first saw Jumanji I was transformed to my kid soul. It was at summer camp and it was a day that the activity was that it was everyone’s birthday party. I think I was eight or something. The floor was littered in individually wrapped pieces of bubble gum just to add a surreal mood to this memory I guess and I went around the room asking everyone “WHAT IS THIS MOVIE??” like it was a life or death situation until someone told me the title and I rented it at blockbuster so many times my parents bought me a VHS of it and I proceeded to watch it over and over again. Now I’m trying to piece together the common themes of 90’s movies as they relate to the Uranus-Neptune conjunction in Capricorn and my first lead of intrigue is the theme of an all-consuming and disruptive reality. I started thinking about this because I watched So I Married An Axe Murderer for the first time the other night and it gave me the same feeling I remembered from Jumanji in a kind of way, and the movies only came out two years apart, so now I’m trying to figure out what other 90’s movies or art in general fit in this category. Please support my weird/obsessive inclinations and share with me below what movies fit here (and why), I need to know!
Not only are the all-consuming disruptive realities that, but they involve a deconstruction (Uranus) of the cultural status-quo (Capricorn). Complete, radical shifting from ‘normal life’, Neptunian like episodes of confusion, illusion, delusion, and things quite beyond belief! What do you guys think?
