Why was this made? I am really serious when I ask that question. Some terrible voice acting and uninteresting dialogue really make this movie not worth while. These characters seem to be so bland and boring which is wierd since they're not in the original films. The animation looks so cheesy and cheap and the story isn't all that entertaining either. It lacks humor, cool-looking visuals and even the fun that the other films have. I know I'm ripping off…
Following the end of the Star Wars prequel trilogy in 2005, George Lucas realised there was a whole other avenue to explore in order to milk his cash cow: animation. Many other franchises--Star Trek, Batman, X-Men--had dabbled in animated series but Star Wars had never taken the plunge beyond video game tie-ins being the closest. Seeing a narrative gap that also could be exploited, the several year gap between Episodes II & III which held the long-discussed but never seen Clone…
Jurassic Park is a much more nuanced and complex story than it is given credit for. And the evidence is seen in the movie's central theme.
The theme of the movie isn't that man shouldn't play god, even though there are shades of it in the script. That's such a cliche theme that has been used time and again since Mary Shelley and it pops up every time there is a movie featuring scientists in lab coats. I can see…
I find that even with his known greatness, Spielberg remains a filmmaker that isn't as respected as he should be. While his filmography isn't perfect, it contains such wonderful and powerful films that represent filmmaking at its finest. Spielberg is a director that wants to take his audience on a journey. The movies aren't a way to kill time, they're an escape into ideas and emotions, a world reminiscent to ours, and yet so different.
Jurassic Park is quite simply…
Raise your hand if you would visit a Jurassic Park in the future!

It's all fun and games until someone pokes an eye out... or in this case gets turned into a big pile of dinosaur dooty!
Relentless chills and thrills and wicked good fun! The Special Effects team from George Lucas's Industrial Light and Magic is responsible for the Non stop WOWsssss, Ohhhhhs and Ahhhhhhs!
Great performances by Sam Neill, Laura Dern and Jeff Goldblum! The child actors Ariana Richards and Joseph Mazzello were beyond fabulous!
It's a dream come true only with big gnarly teeth!
Much like the DNA of those dastardly dinosaurs, Jurassic Park is an amalgam - sci-fi, fantasy, horror, adventure, drama, comedy - it's got it all. That Spielberg managed to blend everything so seamlessly rightfully marks this film as a watershed and a classic, regardless of the superficiality of story. Jaws has been said to have started the blockbuster film movement, and Spielberg returned almost 20 years later to provide us with what could arguably be its zenith. Add to that…
Think on this for a second.
1993. Almost twenty years ago. Barely rinsed the cheesy blockbuster entertainment of the eighties out of our mouths. Actually getting used to the so so visuals in most big budget films.
And then Mr. Spielberg comes along and, as he so often does, throws everything on its ass and creates yet another benchmark in the entertainment industry.
I hadn't seen this film in quite some time and I am amazed by how crisp and…
Most film fans will have one film that ignited their love of cinema. For many that movie experience will come at a young age and in a dark theatre where the large screen envelops you in a whole new world you never thought possible. For me, like many of my generation, that film was Jurassic Park. Of course I liked many movies before that point but it opened my eyes to the potential of the medium like no other film,…
A man walks into a bar and strikes up a conversation with a bartender. What unfolds is one of the most deliciously entertaining, head spinning films in recent memory. I don't want to tell you more about the plot, and you shouldn't look it up, either. Everything is a spoiler. Instead, here are some key words to entice you. Temporal agents. Ethan Hawke. Funny hats. Mustache. Violin case. Heartbreak. Death. Sarah Snook. That guy from Laura Croft: Tomb Raider.
'All you zombies' is/was one of the few Heinlein shorts I hadn't read. Predestination is based on this story, so I went in without any prior knowledge about its content.
Or so I thought.
Ironically for a film about predestination and time travel, this felt as if I had traveled back in time after watching this, read the story to myself in my sleep and then watched the film. Twenty minutes in I had figured out the crux of the…
Well crap!!!.....that was intense......
There can really be no critical analysis of this film...it's just....freaking intense.....the directing is fantastic and constantly visually stimulating... the true story itself of course is horrific and incredible, James Franco is simply perfect and has one of the most convincing and intense performances I have ever seen. The true story has been made into an incredibly entertaining film that achieves absolutely EVERYTHING it sets out to do. You will feel every emotion that Aron goes through...for better or worse.
