    Jurassic World 2015

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 13 Jun, 2015 1

    Second viewing, this time in IMAX 3D.
    My enjoyment was exactly the same, a thoroughly entertains film.
    I'm not a fan of 3D and never usually watch it but I had seen CA: Winter Soldier in IMAX 3D and was very impressed. However, it didn't seem the same for Jurassic World, it added nothing for me.

    Psycho II is a great example of what a true sequel should be, take the story from the original and expand on it, take it in a new direction - don't just repeat it.
    We, the viewer, had some level of sympathy for Norman in the…

    ★★★½ Rewatched 30 Jul, 2013 1

    Rewatch!
    I think that the vast majority of film fans would consider this to be underrated and they're correct. It really is very good and its power has grown over the years.
    The whole build up works perfectly, we get to understand what this prison planet is about and the odd yet balanced relationship between the characters becomes clear.
    Much has been said about the killing off of Newt and Hicks, it is a shame but it helps re-establish Ripley's…
