Life Finds a Way in Spectacular ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ (Review)

Life Finds a Way in Spectacular ‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ (Review)

Three years after the smashing success of Jurassic World (the fifth-highest-grossing film of all time), Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom takes audiences back to Isla Nublar for another popcorn blockbuster adventure featuring everyone’s favorite group of reptile offerings. But unlike Jurassic World where we saw mostly one dinosaur creating most of the mayhem on the island, Fallen Kingdom takes audiences back to the island where new dangers arise not only from the dinosaurs, but also from other parties. As the story plays out, it becomes obvious that Fallen Kingdom serves as a reinvention of the franchise. But luckily, the end results are roaring, which make it superior to its predecessor and take the franchise in a bold, new direction. Credit for that goes to director J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage), who delivers another fun-filled dinosaur adventure full of dazzling action and nightmarish scares that make Fallen Kingdom the best Jurassic Park movie since the original.

Incredibles 2: I Wish Marvel Could Make Superhero Movies Like This (Review)

Incredibles 2: I Wish Marvel Could Make Superhero Movies Like This (Review)

Strange, at the beginning of the movie, the voice actors thanked us for watching.  Well technically they thanked us for waiting, but it’s the same thing. Usually that’s the kiss of death for a film but here it didn’t make a difference.   Even with this bad omen, it would have been hard for Pixar to ruin Incredibles 2. I love me some Brad Bird – he was ‘Miscellaneous Crew’ of my favorite Pixar movies, including Monsters University and Inside Out.  The man knows his stuff. Of course Incredibles 2 is fantastic.

Incredibles 2 is The Family Reunion You’ve Been Waiting For (Review)

Incredibles 2 is The Family Reunion You’ve Been Waiting For (Review)

If there’s one sequel audiences have been clamoring for years, it’s one for 2004’s The Incredibles. Regarded as one of Pixar’s best films, it was met with high praise for its animation, story, and cast of memorable superheroes; it also happened to come out before the current, golden age of film superheroes. Fast forward 14 years (and the release of a behemoth of superhero movies) and the Incredibles are back in action. With a wait this long and anticipation growing with every passing year, the expectations for director Brad Bird and company to deliver another memorable animated film about everyone’s favorite superhero family were astronomically high. Thankfully however, Incredibles 2 meets expectations and is almost on par with its predecessor, becoming one of the best sequels, both animated and superhero, to come out in recent memory.

Hereditary is Brilliant & Deliberate With its Slow Crushing Suspense (Review)

Hereditary is Brilliant & Deliberate With its Slow Crushing Suspense (Review)

This week I saw Hereditary, a new horror film that I’d heard very good things about.  It had been compared to The Witch (one of my very favorite horror films) and was supposed to be this decade’s The Exorcist.  The trailer didn’t make Hereditary look like much but with endorsements like these, how could I resist?

First Man Trailer Gives Us Our First Look at Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong

First Man Trailer Gives Us Our First Look at Ryan Gosling as Neil Armstrong

So this is a musical in space, right? RIGHT? It is going to be odd seeing director Damien Chazelle release a film that doesn’t deal heavily with music, but after the trailer for First Man dropped last night, it looks like we’re in for a thrilling adventure. With an extremely talented cast consisting of Ryan Gosling, Claire Foy, Kyle Chandler, and Jason Clarke, on paper First Man should be a major Oscar contender. Read more
